That the " Aggie Man " may never forget to love and cherish the Alma Mater who has so faithfully shaped his destiny is the task to which the editors humbly dedicate their efforts in prepara- tion of this volume.

Cfjamberlain WHEN it became evident to tiie administration that the department of chemistry needed further development, a search was made to find a man who had received a broad training in the science and who, at the same time, was able to use his chemical knowledge in ways most helpful to agriculture. After considerable inquiry, Joseph S. Chamberlain, who was at the time studying in Berlin, Germany, was chosen and he began his work at M. A. C. in the autumn of 1909. Who is this man Chamberlain, where did he grow uj) and receive both his early and advanced training? What has he accomplished and why is the class of 192.5 dedicating this volume to him? These are some of the questions that naturally will be asked and to which answers are sought. It can be said with truth that his was a goodly heritage. His grandfather, a farmer in Sharon, Connecticut, went to Ohio when William I. Chamberlain, the father of Professor Chamberlain, was four years of age. The father of Joseph was a graduate of Western Reserve College and while spending riiost of his life in practical farming, occupied several public positions of importance. Thus, from 1881 to 1887 he was Secretary of Agriculture for Ohio and from 1887 until 1890, president of the Iowa Agricultural College. Later he became editor of the Ohio Farmer as well as the National Stockman and at the time of his death was still serving in the staff of the former publication. Into such an environment Joseph S. Chamberlain was born in 1870 at Hudson, Ohio. He had the usual experiences of most farmers ' boys growing up on a middle western farm. He attended the public schools in Hudson and was graduated from the high school at Columbus where the family resided while the father was Secretary of Agriculture. Professor Chamberlain entered the Iowa Agricultural College and was graduated in 1890 with the degree of B.Sc, taking the regular course cjuite similar to the one given at M. A. C. at that time. He occupied a position of graduate assistant at his alma mater for two years after the completion of his undergraduate course and received the degree of M.Sc. in 1892. He then decided to go back onto the farm and become a real dirt farmer and he followed this decision with two years of farm practice. The longing, however, for a continuation of educational work got the better of him and in 1894 we see him back at his alma mater as assistant in chemistry, a position which he held until 1897. The long vacations at Iowa were then in winter and he took advantage of them by studying chemistry at Johns Hopkins University. He finally severed his connections with Iowa and continued to pursue his studies intensively at Hopkins, receiving a scholarship in 1897-98 and a fellowship in the following year, working particularly witii Professors Ira Remsen and H. N. Morse. In 1889 he received the degree of Ph.D. for an original investigation in organic chemistry entitled " A Fnrther Study of Two of the Products of the Transformation of Parasulfamine Benzoic Acid When Heated to iiO° C " . From September, 1899 till January, 1901 he was instructor in chemistry at Oberlin and for the balance of the academic year 1901, he acted as research assistant to Professor Renisen at Johns Hopkins. During tlje two summer vacations while connected with Oberlin, he worked in the laboratory of the noted agricultural chemist, W. O. Atwater at Middletown, Connecticut. In the summer of 1901 we find him permanently employed at the Bureau of Chemistry in Washington and he served continually until November, 1908 when he received leave of absence to study in Germany. He went to Berlin and entered the laboratory of the noted physiological chemist, Emil Abderhalden. While abroad he received the call from Amherst to take the newly created position of associate professor of organic and agricultural chemistry and began his duties in September, 1909. Later he was made full professor and at the present time has general supervision of the academic department of chemistry. He made a number of contributions to chemistry in its relation to agriculture prior to his coming to this college among which may be mentioned: " Determina- tions of Gliadin and Glutenin in Flour by the Fleurent Magnet Method " , Bureau of Chemistry, Bulletin 81; " Investigations on the Properties of Wheat Proteins " , Jour. Am. Chem. Soc, 1906; " A Study of the Variations in the Course of the Nitrogen, Sulfate and Phosphate Excretion, as Observed in Short Periods Follow- ing a Small Increase in the Protein Ingested " , Journal of American Physiology, 1904 (with P. B. Hawk); " The Commercial Status of Durum Wheat " , Carleton and Chamberlain, Bulletin 70, Bureau of Plant Industry; " Feeding Value of Cereals as Calculated from Chemical Analysis " , United States Department of Agriculture, Bulletin IW, the latter being made when he was chief of the Cattle Food and Grain Laboratory. In spite of the many demands upon him since coming to M. A. C, he has found time to prepare two text books in chemistry entitled " Organic Agricultural Chemistry " , published by the Macmillan Company, and a more comprehensive work under the title of " Organic Chemistry " , put out by P. Blakiston ' s Son Company. As an illustration of his interest in science and of his reputation in his cho.sen field of chemistry, it may be mentioned that he is one of the councillors of the American Chemical Societ.y and for two years was chairman of the Connecticut Valle.y Section. He is also a fellow in the American Association for the Advance- ment of Science and for several years was a member of the Washington Academy of Science. Professor Chamberlain has devoted him.self, heart and soul, to the welfare of Old Aggie. He has served on several faculty committees and for a long period 9 has lieen a member of the committee on course of study. He has sliown especial interest in the religious life of the institution and in promoting the interests of the college Y. M. C. A., acting as a member of the Advisory Board of Interchurch Student Secretaries. He has always shown a deep interest in the success of all students with whom he has come in contact, offering them friendly advice and encouragement, and with Mrs. Chamberlain, frequently entertaining them at his home. He has cooperated with the students of the graduate school and been a regular attendant at their scientific meeting ' s. Professor Chamberlain has specialized jjarticularly in the chemistry of organic compounds. He is preeminently a teacher and is whole-heartedly devoted to his work. When not in the class room or engaged in executive work, one is likely to find him in the laboratory engaged with his students. It is his desire to be in personal touch with each man, find out his difficulties and help him to a more complete understanding of his subject. Any student who really wants an education and whose desire is to familiarize himself with the science of chemistry and its application, will find in this man a genuine helper, teacher and loyal friend.

This splendid laboratory stands as a lasting tribute, of honor, respect and love, to the first Professor of Chemistry in the Massachusetts Agricultural College and, in spirit, is the fulfillment of the dreams of the Department of Chemistry which he founded. The College is proud to thus recognize his .service to the institution and to the Commonwealth and all who knew him or knew of him; his students, his friends, his associates and his successors, are gratified that such a monument should be raised to his memory. Those who were his students or who knew him while he walked about this campus and town need no biography to tell of his life and work; but those of this later day who have watched the new laboratory grow and those in after years wlio read his name above the door they enter may pause to ask: Why the name and who the man? To let answer be made that; Charles Anthony Goessmann was the first Professor of Chemistry in this college and the first Director and Chemist of the Massachusetts Agricultural Experiment Station. He was a native of Germany, a pupil of the great Woehler, and received his degree of Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Gottingen in 185 2. In 18.57 he came lo the United States, and for ten years was chemist for sugar and salt industries in this country. In Gottingen he was a fellow student with William S. Clark and when the latter became President of this college, Goessmann was invited to become its first Professor of Chemistry, in which position he began his work for the college in 1868. From that day until his retirement in 1907 the man Goessmann was a strong power in the young and growing college, and, for all time, the name of Goessmann will be a yet stronger influence in the institution which he heljjed to start. As a teacher he was honored and loved by his pupils, and many of those whom he taught and inspired continued their studies beyond the walls of their Alma Mater, in universities at home or abroad, and devoted their lives, as he did his, to the promotion of Chenii.stry in its relation to Agriculture. The greatest work a teacher can do is that which he does in instructing and influencing those whom he teaches to use their lives in service and to carry on the work they share in common. Thus in the lives and work of the chemists he has inspired is the greatest honor which Professor Goessmann earned. While he taught others to work he himself was busy with investigations, and the contributions which he made to chemical literature were very many and dealt 13 with many of tlie problems of chemistry as related to agriculture. The exact number of such articles is unimportant, and their names would mean little in this connection for the fact to emphasize is, simply, that both as teacher and as chemist he worked with all his talents and all his strength to promote the best interests of his pupils, his science, his college, his commonwealth, his community. In these ways and with these results he worked here at M. A. C This is the man whom the college delighteth to honor, and the man whom all future teachers, chemists and students, as they enter the portals of this new laboratory, will likewise honor. May they all, in the years to come, realize their privilege and their responsibility. With the name of Goessmann, cut likewise in stone, are the names of seven other chemists, together signifying the devotion of the building to the science of chemistry. WOEHLER, the beloved teacher of Goessmann and one of the most loved and one of the greatest of chemistry teachers and investigators. LIEBIG, the Father of Agricultural Chemistry and the one who first sug- gested the use of chemical fertilizers. He was also the first to introduce laboratory instruction as a part of university teaching of chemistry, and under him the first student laboratory of chemistry was built. BOUSSINGA ULT, the greatest of the early French agricultural chemists, and the one to first conduct field experiments in connection with the chemistry of agriculture. LAWES-GILBERT. The names of these two men, the former Agriculturist and the latter Chemist, will ever be associated with the establishment of the greatest of agricultural experiment stations at Rothamsted, England, and with the investigation of some of the great problems of agricultural chemistry such as the fixation of atmospheric nitrogen by plants. JOHNSON. Samuel W. Johnson is known the world over by his tw o books, " How Crops Grow " and " How Crops Feed " which were pioneer books on agricul- tural chemistry and exerted a tremendous influence for scientific agriculture in this country. He was the first American chemist to suggest the chemical control of commercial fertilizers, and was the first Chemist and Director of the Connecti- cut Experiment Station at New Haven. HILGARD. An American chemist of German parentage and university training, whose work on soils, mostly at the California Experiment Station, exerted a lasting influence on the work in American Experiment Stations. Thus the names which help to adorn our new laboratory are not simply architectural ornaments, but signify the true purpose to which the building is to be devoted, and typify the spirit of true science in the service of agriculture as the spirit in which the work in chemistry in this Agricultural College will always 14 be carried on. It is interesting to note that of these men three were Americans, two Germans, two English and one French. A few words about the plan of the building. Unlike the old laboratory which underwent a spectacular chemical reaction, September 6, 192 ' ' 2, the new laboratory has been planned for the definite purpose to which it is to be devoted, viz., to the teaching of chemistry, and the investigation of problems in the chemis- try of agriculture. The general plan may be described in units of the east and west wings and the main central portion. Each floor of each wing, with adjoining small rooms in the central part is devoted to work of a related character. The main auditorium with 165 seats is in the center rear, and in the west wing base- ment are two 75 seat lecture rooms opening directly outside and available for general classes as well as for those in chemistry. The basement, so-called, is no basement in fact but is as fully used and as light and roomy as any other part of the building. The east wing, basement, holds two large laboratories, one for the freshman classes and the other for sophomores in qualitative analysis. The east wing, main floor, accommodates, in two large laboratories, the work in organic and physiological chemistry. The west wing on the same floor consists of two labora- tories for physical chemistry, while above it on the third floor are the laboratories of analytical chemistry. On this floor in the east wing is the home of the research laboratories of the Experiment Station. The library suite of main room, Goess- mann Memorial Alcove and seminar room, occupies the third floor, center, rear. The remaining small rooms in the central part are for offices, research rooms and supply rooms. 15 ilemters; of tfje poarb of l rusfteeg iWemberg of tfje poarU Charles H. Preston of Danvers .

Lyman 38 Cije rail placers; of 01 ggie MEN of foresight and vision were those who, sixty years back, founded the agricultural colleges. It was a new and untried field. There was no body of organized agricultural knowledge on which to base instruction. There were no standards of perfection in agricultural teachings. The e.xperiment stations had not been brought into existence. The teachers of agriculture in the early days of these colleges were required almost to " make bricks without straw " , and to this general rule M. A. C. was no exception. Yet the definition of service expected from these new institutions was sound. It was formulated in a single sentence : " Without excluding other scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and mechanic arts in such manner as the legislatures of the states may respectively prescribe, in order to promote the liberal and practical educa- tion of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and profes- sions of life. " To this ideal the Trustees of the College have always held true. The education given at M. A. C. has prepared for life service as well as for specific vocations. At the very beginning, however, there was no knowledge of the type of men which the College would attract, nor yet of the fields of service which these men would seek. The alumni of the earlier classes were trail blazers. In the path outlined by them have gone most of the graduates of the College. Many men went into practical agriculture. Clark ' 72 was one of the few men of his generation who appreciated the possibilities in commercial orcharding in New England, and who stuck through many recurring periods of discouragment, to win finally a notable success. Following him were such men as Howe " 81, Richardson ' 87, Howard ' 92, Taylor ' 92, in as many different farming activities. The final results of offering to men who go back to the farm the benefits of an agricultural education are shown by the fact that men of this stamp are now valued in every community, whereas formerly they were viewed with suspicion. To the tremendous field of agricultural business many of the earlier alumni were attracted. Inspired by the teachings of Goessmann in chemistry and Stockbridge in agriculture, Bowker ' 71 developed the commercial possibilities in the manufacture and sale of chemical fertilizers. The first years were hard, the jjroduct was new, untried, mysterious and viewed with suspicion. State chemical control had not been developed, and honest men were at a disadvantage in competition with those having no scruples. At the time of his death, however, Mr. Bowker was the dean of the American fertilizer industry, known far and wide for the courage and forcefulness with which he pressed his views and the faith which he had in the service of his business. Today alumni lists show that many graduates of Old Aggie have sought service in this same field. Likewise Aggie 39 men may l)e found in many other branches of agricultural indus try: notably in the manufacture and merchandising of insecticides and fungicides, in the commer- cial feed industry, and to a more limited extent in the manufacture and sale of farm ecjuipment. The College, however, through the type of education which it gave, was destined to give even broader service. On it fell the duty of preparing scores of teachers, whose function was to help develop other colleges and spread throughout the country the doctrine of better farming based upon a better, knowledge of real science. The spectacular service, and in many ways a far reaching service, was the sending of a number of graduates of the College to Japan to found the Sapporo Agricultural College. A party of three left this country on the second of March, 1877, the leader President Clark, on leave of ab.sence from M. A. C, and with him Wheeler ' 71 to serve as Professor of Mathematics and Civil Engineering, and Penhallow ' 7,S to serve as Professor of Botany and Chemistry. About half a year later came Brooks ' 75 to serve as Professor of Agriculture, and in 1878 Cntter ' 72 in Physiology and Comparative Anatomy and Peabody, a non-graduate of the class of ' 75, in Engineering. Some years later Brigham ' 78 and Stockbridge ' 78 were added to the faculty. The romance of this service appeals to the imagination. Even more so, however, does the later service of these men who ventured forth from M. A. C. into untrodden fields. The service of the leader of the expedition. President Clark, is too well known to require further description. Wheeler for many years has been a valued and most efficient Trustee of the College. Dr. Penhallow entered the service of McGill University in Canada, and at the time of his death was con- sidered to be one of the foremost of American botanists. Dr. Cutter was one of the first alumni to take an advanced degree in medicine, in which profession he made a distinct success. Dr. Brooks was called back to his Alma Mater to serve for years as Professor of Agriculture, was at two different times Acting President of the College, and later Director of the Experiment Station. Dr. Stockbridge made a name for himself in agricultural journalism. Dr. Brigham was for many years a Trustee of the College. Through the influence of these men, many Japanese boys came to Aggie for their college education. One of these, a member of the class of ' 88, Viscount Mishima, was at the time of his death president of the Bank of Japan — a bank which in Japan is equivalent in its power and influence to the Bank of England in the British Empire. Viscount Mishima has been the greatest financial figure of the Aggie alumni body. The group of men who saw service in Japan included men who made names for themselves in science, in agricultural education, in general education, in medicine, in engineering, in agriculture. Following in the paths which they blazed are many other men of equally distinguished service. In the field of education, the names of Stone ' Si, Howe ' 78, Plumb ' 82, typify the service of tlie institution. In medicine Dr. Cutter has been followed by scores of other 40 men who made use of the broad education given at M. A. C. as a basis for ad- vanced work in medicine, — cjuite recently by Dr. J. E. Goldthwaite " 8.5, remem- bered with appreciation by those cognizant of his great work with the A. E. F. In agricultural journalism Myrick ' Si has been an outstanding figure. In chemistry Wellington, I.indsey, Wheeler are known in all parts of the country. In research administrative work the service of Allen ' 85 is without parallel. The work done over a period of many years by Harwood ' 75 with the Dairy Bureau of the Massachusetts State Department of Agriculture has been out- .standing; while in an entirely different field, that of landscape architecture, Parker ' 76 was probably the first of numbers of Aggie men who have given a good account of their earlier training. Maynard " 72 was among the leaders in our earlier horticultural work. Two other members of the earlier classes. Holmes ' li and Webb ' 73, attained distinction as jurists. Rev. Henry Hague " 75 capitalized his college training in a far different way, took advanced .study, prepared himself for the Christian minis- try, and had a long and successful pastorate in the city of Worce.ster. Such were the paths marked out for alumni of succeeding years by the gradu- ates of the earlier classes. Such has been and is the service of the institution. Impossible is it to measure in terms of money the vaJTie of this .service to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 41 (§rabuate tubentsi anb tabuate g igtantsi Archibald, John G. Arrington, Luther B.

A. C. as the class of ' 24. Ahead of us lay an unknown mountain, and we started gladly up the trail with a spirit of adventure, a desire to meet difficulties, to face new tasks, to lay aside tradition and memories of old achievements, and to scale the heights to a fresh vision. Day by day on the trail we have met teachers and friends. Great men have spoken to us from books. From the inspiration of their fellowship has come the desire to understand and love humanity, to build our ideals into the structure of the world, and to feel i n our souls the beauty and truth of a noble human life. Some of us have wandered from the main road to visit shrines in secluded by- paths. We have come to feel the joy of mingling with our comrades. What a wealth of friendships has surrounded us! Of how many lives have we been a part in these four years! The time draws on when we must say farewell. Our pilgrimage divides into many smaller pilgrimages. The trail leads upward still, but it has a multitude of branches. Each one chooses his own pathway and continues on, stronger, hap- pier, more serviceable, for having shared in the common life of the Alma Mater. We look back to see the stream of new students who are taking our places. We are glad they are going to follow us, and we want them to build and improve the trail for those who are to come after. We hope that they will set new stand- ards of attainment in every department, and that they will protect and encourage the spirit of liberalism which is growing in our college. We look ahead and are glad that there will be reunions when we can talk of years we spent together. In our hearts is a keen new realization of the meaning of the lines which we have so often sung : ■ ' Aggie, my Aggie My heart yearns for thee, — " 45 tlDfte Senior Clagg Barrows, Robert A.

Shuniway iligtorp of tlje Cla s; of 1925 HEAR ye one — hear ye all — a blast from the lists of 192.5! A survey of the ranks reveals the stamp of hard struggle, which nurtured into being a grim- ness and a well tempered virility capable of withstanding all odds. Retrospect brings forth visions of a freshman year in which Fate seemed to hold us in the dust of defeat at her feet. Class victories were rare, yet the seed of hope was born. The freshman football and baseball teams were the fear of the countryside and the pride of " Aggie " . The basketball team won the interclass championship. It was in the spring of the freshman year that ' 25 completed a master stroke of prowess. The sophomores had not expected the supposedly fearful freshmen to turn out on the eve of the appointed date for incinderating freshman hats. But lo — a mighty blaze issued triumphantly forth from the brow of the campus slope back of Wilder Hall, while all the sophomores were snug in their cots! The sophomore year added momentum to the already increasing forces. The six-man rope pull was easily won from the best the incoming freshman had to offer. A freshman football team, feted and trained to the limit, had to exert its utmost powers to keep from being scored on. The basketball team again cap- tured the interclass championship. A freshman baseball team suffered a 5-3 defeat. Hat burning day in the spring found the freshman class in fear and tremble of ' 25. But kindness graced the acts of the sophomores. Three score freshman bonnets were saved from oxidation for safe keeping in the hands of ' 25. What few bonnets were retained by ' 26 were carefully burned considerably beyond the campus limits. The intellectual progress of the class has shown a steady evolution. The truth of Darwin ' s theories have been clearly demonstrated. Only those of highest mental equipment remain in a junior class of what was once a freshman class of more than twice the number. The major choices of the members of the present ' 25 show an unusual enrollment in the annals of science, proving a high standard of mental capacity. 55 BRADFORD ARMSTRONG " BRAD " Kensington, Md. Emerson Institute 1901; Entomology; Q. T. V. Here is something that ' 24 lost and ' 25 gained. After entering with ' 24 he saw his mistake and decided to wait. Here we have the one and only " Kensington Kid " . We have been told that Kensington is in close proximity to Washington, D. C. If that is the case it may be easily seen how " Brad " during his younger years " osmosed " qualities from the Capitol ' s law makers. He is always ready to state his opinion on any matter and we also find him spending many hours studying the beauties of nature. Some day we may find " Brad " among the noted naturalists, lovers of birds, flowers, and trees. ADRIAN DOUGLASS BARNES " DUG " 1903; Landscape Gardening; Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Q. T. V. This long somewhat attenuated, easy-going Adonis with the characteristic Weymouth drawl is a well known figure in the Landscape Department and may be seen any day in the wild exodus of the hash-slinging Elite from our dining hall accompanied by his satellite and complementing Gold-Dust twin " Lewie " Keith. A seeming ardent exponant of bachelorhood, " Dug " is a photographer of some note and he exposes at times some very incriminating evidence — like a true sailor he has a girl in every hotel along the Atlantic seaboard. FRANCIS L. BEAN " FRANKIE " Bradford, Mass. Haverhill High School 1901; Farm Management; Q. T. V. " Frankie " entered as a sophomore transfering from the U. of Maine. We don ' t know why he left Orono, let alone Bradford, but is has been said he heard that the military students down here drill on horseback and not on foot. He claims to have done enough footwork at the girls ' finishing school, Bradford Academy. This year Frankie has confined his activities to the " orth End " of the campus during the evening hours. He has no mean ability as a rider of U. S. Cavalry horses. As a French student his claims are doubtful. He has taken several courses in French altho all his efforts are concentrated on the same one. 56 HELEN BENOIT Amherst Williamsburg High School 190-t; Agricultural Education. Did you ever wonder what made Helen choose for her Alma Mater M. A. C. instead of Mt. Holyoke, as she had originally planned? It ' s a secret — but this is the reason. Helen knew that at M. A. C. there were good Floriculture courses and she had an ambition — to make a rock garden of the Holyoke Range. There- fore she came to Aggie and is taking several Floriculture courses. In chapel you always have to look twice to see Helen, for she is very seldom talking. You can be sure that she is present, how- ever, for not even the coldest and stormiest of winter weather can keep her from traveling over the miles between Belchertown road and campus to attend her classes. ROGER S. BINNER " ROG " Maiden, Mass. . Maiden High School 1896; Floriculture; Secretary- Treasurer Floriculture Club (2); President Floriculture Club (3); Flower Judging team (3). . fter the United States got through with the mixup on the other side of the pond, Binner felt the call of the West and started to pursue the art of floriculture in the state college of Montana. He soon discovered that he could not make the prairies bloom like the rose, so he plucked the sweetest flower there was and brought her back to our campus. If the interest he puts into his major is an.y indication of his future success, Boston will never need to fear for its flower supply. RALPH H. BRAY •SHORTY ' Framingham, Mass. Framingham High School 1902; Landscape Gardening; Class Relay (1); Class Baseball (2); Varsity Baseball (2); Glee Club (1); Sigma Phi Epsilon. " Short.y " we call him for short, but he goes by the moniker of Brackyblast. " Shorty " wanted to major in Agronomy but his first course in that subject turned him from a landscraper to a landscaper. He hails from the wilds of Framingham, the home of the Framingham Normal School and many pretty women. " Shorty " believes in patronizing the home town. All his attention is not towards figures, real or artificial, however, for he is also a fast man on the track. " Shorty " aspires to be a baseball player and while you wouldn ' t think so, it is hard to put one over on him 57 SUMNER O. BURHOE " HANK " Framingham, Mass. Ashland High School 1902; Animal Husbandry; Cross-country (2); Band (1, 2, 3) ; Kappa Epsilon. Although " Hank " was rather put out, at first, by the evolu- tionistic attitude expressed in some of his Freshman courses, he became inured to it. and even asked for more as evinced by his study of plant life from alpha to omega; he has accepted evolution, with reservations. He is always cheerful, and brightens the world by his presence. He believes that it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. CARL W. CAHILL " CARL " Newburyport, Mass. Newburyport High School Kent ' s Hill Seminary 1902; General Science; Varsity Baseball (1, 2); Varsity Track (1, 2); Class Basketball (1, 2); Class Football (2); Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Prom Committee (3); Kappa Sigma. Carl came into our midst seemingly a much sophisticated youth with a blase air from the wilds of Newburyport. Since the first he has hidden his interests in many campus activities behind a mask of quiet and aloofness which has seldom been torn aside. Carl has not been idle, winning numerals in fall track and class basketball. Then it was in his freshman year that he won his " M " in track and baseball. In the latter he is one of our best men. Strange as it may sound he was enough of a social light to be elected a member of the Soph-Senior Hop and Prora Com- mittees. Smith too commands quite regular attendance. ALICE RITA CASEY " RITTER " Fall River B. M. C. Durfee High School 1902; Agricultural Education; Women ' s Student Council (3) ; Y. " W. C. A. Cabinet (2, 3); Class Secretary (1, 2, 3); Delta Phi Gamma. Rita comes from Fall River — don ' t hold it against her. Nearly as soon as she landed on campus, she was elected class secretary — an office which has been hers almost every term since then. Rita puts heart and soul into everything she undertakes, whether it is pruning trees or baking pies in R. H. L. She is always good- natured; she can smile even in the face of a Physics quiz (or any similar strain on the disposition). A perfect attendance record for all dances, from Victrola parties to Proms, from the beginning of her Freshman year is hers. To her class she has always been staunchly loyal; woe to the person she hears say a word against it! At all interclass contests during her Freshman and Sophomore years, she spent most of her time wishing she were a boy and could " help win for ' 2.) " . 58 JOSEPH CASSANO " JOE- Groveland, Mass. Essex Aggie 1901; Animal Husbandry: Class Football; Debating (I); Dairy Judging Team; Q. T. V. A graduate of Essex Aggie and yet he comes to M. A. C. tn study. Why. ' Future career as a County Agent so therefore his knowledge must be well sorted and arranged for future use of backyard farmers. As for debating, did you ever argue with Joe! Well you don ' t stand a chance as he has proofs, right or wrong. " Ma " Goodwin recognized this feature of Joe ' s and made him Head Waiter. Now we hear, " Something wrong? See the Head Waiter, please " , and then Joe will prove to you that the eggs are fresh. Joe also made quite a name for himself among the females his freshman year. He went to church to look over the girls in the choir. GEORGE LYLE CHURCH Dorchester Dorchester High School 1903; Botany; Roister Doisters (1, 2, 3); Varsity Debating (2); Collegian (2, 3); Index Board; Glee Club (3); Class Historian (3); 1st prize, Burnhara Declamation Contest (2); Alpha Gamma Rho. The lofty brow, the far-off look, the nervous manner, the lengthy pseudopodial extremities and the somewhat attenuated morphology give an air of intensive scholarship to this classmate of ours. To us he is a witty, good-natured, learned companion, at times overcome by the exuberance of his verbosity — a good scout for all of his 9,5% average. Though George is a busy man — anyone can see that by the way he lopes around the campus- — he manages to find time to " russal " around doing work coincident with several non-athletic activities, besides .studying and slinging hash three hours a day. LEIGHTON GREENWOOD CLEAVES " LATE " Gardner Gardner High School 1904; Agricultural Economics; Class Football (1); Class Hockey (1); Glee Clubs (2, 3); Phi Sigma Kappa. What ' s the use of worrying — it never was worth while! This might well be the slogan of this fair haired boy. The word " blues " is not in his vocabulary. He doesn ' t like to throw away his time in studying, yet majoring in Aggie Ec. forces his occasional indulgence. Often in the evening he disappears and it is rumored that he is trying his clear tenor voice on some river maid. Late has many lasting friends because of his happy smile and he likes nothing better than a practical joke — when it is not on him. 59 ROBERT G. COOKE " COOKEE " Atlantic Pittsfielfl High School 1903: Entomology; Track; Class Basketball (1, 2, 3J; Alpha Sigma Phi. In a sequestered corner of Berkshire County there may be found (after enough diligent search) the town of Richmond, a place unheard of until it gave to the world this voluble, ambitious son of the soil. With a burning ambition to achieve, our hero descended upon the Aggie campus, where he received a few hard but beneficial jolts — one of which was an introduction to the Aggie pond via the aerial route at the first pond party of his Freshman year. A cheerful sort of gent with pep enough for half a dozen jack-rabbits, Cookee may be found participating in any- thing from running down " bugs " in the Ent. Lab. to shaking a wicked pair of feet at a dance. Bob lives down near Boston now and is taking on a real urban polish. EMIL J. CORWIN " EMIL " East Boston, Mass. East Boston High School 1903 Agricultural Education; Aggie Revue (1, 3); Class Baseball (1); Class Track (2); Roister Doisters (2, 3); Glee Club (2, 3); Freshman-Sophomore Debate (1. 2); Index (3); Delta Phi Alpha. Emil is a little man with quick steps and pensive brow. His alertness of both physical and mental action may possibly be due to the air of the briny deep that encircles his native city of East Boston. At any rate, Emil has been known to solve a problem in " trig " and construct a working thought for a theme simultane- ously. His nimbleness of finger is not daunted at even the most fiery outbursts of Chopin. Emil ' s pensiveness is usually taken as a criterion of his aspirations to do great things. His capacity in this line was most admirably demonstrated in his management of a domestic complex in the Commencement Show of 1923. May the blessing of the gods rest with thee. Einil! JOHN S. CROSBY " JOHNNY " .Vrlington . rIington High School 1902; Vegetable Gardening; Freshman Baseball; Class President (2); Varsity Football (2); Interclass Athletic Board (2); Senate (3); Interfraternity Conference (3); Class President (3); Phi Sigma Kappa. He was only a Veg. Gardener ' s son, but he knew his peas and lettuce, say right now. and he came to Aggie with the class of 1925. Silent John has been in several of the mysterious escapades of the class. He is a charter member of the O. P. club. He has main- tained the puritanical standards which he had at the time of his entrance into college — Consequently " Father " John has been the counsellor of the class. They say that John makes frequent trips to Smith. The girls simply adore the silent youth with his cavern-like, suggesting-depth-of-thought eyes, and his Sultanic atmosphere. Suffice it to say that John is well-liked and popular. 60 LELAND L. CURRIER -LEE " Mai-bleliead, Mass. Marbleliead High Scliool 1904; Animal Husbandry; Hockey (1, 2); Eootball (2); Alpha Gamma Rho. The mermaids of the rock-bound coast of Marblehead could not restrain this dashing young Apollo, for he ventured far and wide in his quest for love. Along with An. Hus. " Lee " is incorporating military training, and he certainly cuts a bold figure when mounted. " Lee ' s " fiery dash hasalso been oft displaced pushing the puck on the ice where even the coolness of the air cannot dampen his ardor to reach the goal. " Abigail Adams " will most bitterly mourn the loss of this faith- ful son of hers when he departs this blissful realm. OSBORNE OZRO DAVIS " DAVE " Belchertown, Mass. Belchertown High School 1902; Vegetable Gardening; Track (1). The week ends can ' t roll around fast enough to suit " Dave " , for almost invariably does he wend his way to Belchertown on Fridays. We are inclined to think that these weekly jaunts are prompted not so much because of the proximity of his native town to Amherst, as it is because he suffers from nostalgia. " Dave " is rustically inclined, and when he is not seen sampling soil, you may be sure he has taken to the woods in search of " bigger game " . As class rustic, he merits a good " honorable mention " . " Dave " is cjuiet and hopeful. — particularly the latter, for his most often quoted words are, " Hope so " . DOMINK K DEVITO " NICK " Philadelphia, Pa. National Farm School 1899; Agricultural Education; Football (3). We have in this youth from the city of Benjamin Franklin fame a plugger of the first water. Speaking of roll calls, his one ambition in life, next to being a successful insurance agent, is to be a modern version of Napoleon and in event of his troops being licked his thunderous " Hot Dog " would turn defeat into victory. DeVi to, however, changes his brogans for pumps, boils his shirt, and cements his hair every so often and he may be seen over in Hamp where he is rated as a passable exponent of the nimble toed art. 61 LEO F. DUFFY •■DUFF " Springfield, Mass. Technical High Hchool 1896; Entomology; Chairman Banquet Committee (1); Roister Doisters (1, 2); Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Index (3); Inter-fraternity Conference (3); Assistant Manager Varsity Basketball (3); Kappa Epsilon. ' Twas a misfortune of the war which gave to the class of 1925 the dauntless, decomplex, dedecorous, delinquent, dicephalous, ducal " Duff " . The ideas of the " Profs " were revolutionized by the revelations of " Duff " on " How we farmed it down in Palmer " . Duff is a firm believer in the worship of Morpheus. Absences from classes are his open manifestations of this addiction. When he is not importuning this god. his beaming face appears on the campus. Hard work and his mania for entering into activities placed him on the Soph-Senior hop committee and gained him the managership of varsity basketball. Duff ' s main line is Entomology. He was associated with bugs in the army. In the near future we .shall hear him referred to as the " buggy professor of bugs " . EDMUND T. FERRANTI " FRITZ " West liridgcwaler, Mass. Howard High School 1901; EntomoL-gy; Class Basketball (1); Varsity Football (2, 3); Varsity Basketball (2, 3): Varsity Baseball (2); Senate (3); Class Captain (2, 3); Lambda Chi Alpha. " Fritz " first saw the light on St. Patrick ' s day, and ever since then life has been one joke after another. Ever since his entrance into the class of ' 2.5, he has been ever in the midst of its activities. Being versatile, he has been prominent in the various athletic activities on the campus. His value to the football and basket- ball teams has been demonstrated by his hard clean playing. He is a card player of note, and has taken the measure of Dr. Cramp- ton in many hard fought bridge games. Whenever you hear a funny laugh, you can bet " Fritz " is around. Although he has been beseiged by the ladies, none have got him in their grasp, in fact " Fritz " is a charter member of the O. P. Club. He is very strong for science, when applied to athletics, and we feel sure some dav he will make a noted scientist. CHAUNCEY McLEAN GILBERT " GIL " North Amherst Phillips Exeter Academy 1882: Animal Husbandry. " Gil " is a veteran of two wars and one of the distinguished men in the class. He is, as well, a leading citizen of Slab City. The only thing we are afraid of is the vile pipe that followed him from France, much to our discomfort. " Gil " is apt to turn into a zoological specimen any day, because of his associations in the zoo. lab. If one desires to see the " old gentleman " at any time day or night, he should look in Fernald Hall. " Gil " is preparing to spray some poor unfortunates with his zoological learning after he graduates. We all wish him the best of luck for his perseverance. 62 HAROLD ALBERT GLEASON ■HAL " Chester Pittsfield High School 1901; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1); Varsity Football (2, 3); Delegate to Indianapolis Student Convention (3); Y. M. C. A. Cabinet (2, 3); Class Vice-President (3); Phi Sigma Kappa. The rural village of Chester has the distinction of calling itself the home town of Hal. even though he does hesitate to admit it. " Happy-go-lucky Hal " has no other care in the world than that of losing his hair. Our " Agricultural Philosopher " has spent a large amount of time trying to solve the world ' s great problems. Hal also would make us think that he is an upholder of Schopen- hauer ' s ideas of women, yet those who know him say that he is very different. Ask some of the Co-eds. SOLOMON GORDON " SOL " Boston Boston English High School 1903; Chemistry; Class Football (1, 2); Varsity Football (2, 3) ; Delta Phi Alpha. In spite of his excess avoirdupois, this rotund individual from Bean Town is as graceful as Ted Shawn. To see him wrestle, box, or wriggle his way through a football defense is truly a treat, for he does these things with the grace of an aesthete and with the gusto of an athlete. Sol is majoring in chemistry, and he wears a visage that well befits his pursuit, for already he has been mistaken for that other well known chemist — Harvey W. ' Wiley. Sol manifests enthusiasm in things other than football and chemistry. It is not uncommon to observe him perched upon a pool table (a la Jeff) trying to get around some vexatious billiard situation. Besides being a shark at his intellectual pursuits, he is a good-natured side-kick. Strangely enough, his favorite literature is " The Married Life of Helen .iiid W irrcTi " . WALTER CHAMPION GROVER •CHAMP " Bernardston Powell Institute 1903; Farm Management; Manager Varsity Track (3); Phi Sigma Kappa. Here is a quiet mannered chap if ever one could be found, for anger is a thing unknown to him. Champ is naturally studious, but being desirous of keeping the profs from discovering it, he has been fairly successful in the past. This fair faced Adonis has an easy road to the hearts of the fair sex, for he could well be the author of a slogan, " Keep that College youth complexion " . Aside from Bernardston and Amherst, he may be found occasion- ally in Fitchburg. " There ' s a reason. " CARL E. F. GUTERMAN " PINKIE " ' Si)riiigfielil Central Higli Sclioul 1903; Bolany; Freshman Baseball (mgr.); Freshman-Soph. Debate (1, 2); Varsity Debating (1, 2); Class Treasurer (1); Class Smoker Committee, Asst. -manager of Musical Clubs; Asst. Cheerleader; Kappa Sigma. " Pinkie " is a native of Springfield — that cannot be held against him, however. He came to " Aggie " with a firm determination to teach the Botany Department all that there was to be taught but he has gradually lost his vast supply of knowledge. Soon he will leave us with nothing but an enviable record of 90 ' s. Like most of us, he has had his venture with Cupid but being the better shot escaped and since has entered his name in the Lonely Hearts Column hoping to correspond with some nice girl, as one in China, whom he will have no chance of meeting. Nevertheless ■Pinkie " is popular; he may be seen at any game leading the " Long Yell. GILBERT J. HAEUSSLER " GIL " Springfield, Mass. Springfield Tech. High School 1904; Entomology; Collegian (1, 2, 3); Kappa Sigma. It is generally understood that " Gil " has some fair friend in Springfield, and his embarassed pecuniary status, following his return from Springfield, is thus readily accounted tor. Having a peculiar calling for flivvers and other creeping insects, it is no small wonder that our hero majors in entomology. Besides being of material aid to his class in producing " Aggie Revues " , " Gil " is an enterprising newspaper man, — being one of the main- stays of that well known publication, " The Collegian " . Pertinacity, that marked characteristic of Gil ' s, will win for him all he hoped for. LAURENCE NEWTON HALE " LARRY " South Glastonbury, Conn. Glastonbury High School 1904; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1, 2); Class Basketball (1, 2, 3): Squib (1, 2, 3); Business Manager Squib (3); Chairman Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Junior Prom Committee (3); Informal Committee (3); Sales Manager Index (3) ; Phi Sigma Kappa. Here we have one who will raise the pride of Glastonbury, for Larry has something to do with almost everything here at Aggie. Being in the social whirl, it seems as though he would be a frequenter of the neighboring colleges. But he believes in the advice, " Go west, young man, go west " . " When it comes to business, put Larry in the leadership and it will succeed. He could sell people a keyless typewriter, as a new noiseless model. Here ' s to the smiling future political boss of the " Nutmeg State " . 64 GEORGE W. HANSCOMB " DOC " North Attleboro, Mass. Provincetovvn High School 1902; Entomology; Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Editor- in-chief of Index (3); Circulation Manager of the Squib (3): Asst. Manager of Hockey (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. The wordly wise, the conscientious, the faithful, the executive, the manager. " Doc " embodies all these. As editor-in-chief of the Index and a worker for Squibby he burns his candle far into the night and as manager of hockey, keeps the Frosh working " midst the snows of winter. " Doc " has been known to perform among the athlete ' s fields, but his main field of endeavor is among the cloisters of the Abbey, or its suburbs, — Wilder, chapel steps, and the campus in general, before ten o ' clock and the fatal key- jangling. CLARENCE A. HARRIS rtica, N. Y. Utica Free Academy 1901; Agricultural Economics. That Clarence should have transferred from Syracuse to this institution is not surprising in as much as he has that jejune, rustic bearing which characterizes him outwardly as an ardent agriculturist. Outside of class he is readily discerned by his jaunty gait and by the pipe he everlastingly pulls at. Although this lanky individual is majoring in Ag. Ec, he shows aptitude in his other pursuits. We are awaiting the day when Clarence will lay aside for good that R. O. T. C. uniform, in order that we may more fully appreciate his trim appearance. JOHN GUNNAR HOLTEEN Quincy, Mass. Quincy High School 1902; Class Baseball (2); Kappa Gamma Phi. • This curly headed nordic entered our civic institution in the class of ' 24, but after an absence from school, his mind cooled and he returned to college among the men of 192.5. He has readily adapted himself to his environment and now plods his way toward perfection in landscap ing. While his stamping grounds are extensive he has no special attraction as yet and so goes on getting experience. He throws lefthanded and thus was of benefit to his team around first base during Freshman year. Quincy enjoys his presence semi-occasionally and expects to rejoice in his career as a topographical beautifer. 65 JOHN W. HYDE JOHNNY ' Amherst, Mass. Amherst High School 1902; Landscape Gardening; Banquet Committee (1); Class Track (2); Index (3): M. A. C. C. A. Cabinet (3); Theta Chi. ' " .Johnny " will never live down his title of " President Hyde " that he acquired because of his energetic work on the banquet committee Freshman year. This energy has lasted in all the work he undertakes and whenever there is something to do for the class " Johnny " is always on hand. He has a very artistic taste which he hopes to use in the realm of landscape gardening and has made good use of that taste by contributing much that adds to the attractiveness of this Index. EDWARD FORSTER INGRAHAM •INGY " Millis, Mass. Millis High School 1902; Animal Husbandry; Class Treasurer (2, 3,); Six-man Rope Pull (2); Manager Class Baseball (2); Assistant Manager Hoister Doisters (2); Varsity Football (2, 3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. If the frosh had only the power to read this youth ' s dark eyes or had they watched the company he kept, they would have possibly had a few score hats to burn and not a large number to mourn for; had they nailed him to a tree in the banquet scrap they would have had no loss of a large number of cuffs. Altluiugh Eddie has never been seen at the Abbey, he has brought more co-eds into the limelight than any " fusser " — he pulls the curtain at the Roister Doister shows. Those who know him feel that he is cut out for something big, although he modestly says that the farm is sure to claim its own. JAMES C. KAKAVAS " JIM " Lowell, Mass. Lowell High School 1899; Animal Husbandry. This son of the gods is just full of energy and musical tempera- ment. Any one living in the North Dorm Sophomore year will vouch for the fact that if anything was up " Jim " was sure to have a hand in it somewhere. Many a door panel has yielded under tlie added pressure of " Jim ' s " shoulder. Then again the college at large has not had the benefit of his musical ability since the orchestra of today does not call for a mandolin. Those who have roomed near him tho have sat for hours under the spell he wrought by his playing of classics. 66 LEWIS HAYDEN KEITH " LEWIE " Bridgewater, Mass. Bridgewater High School 1904; Landscape Gardening; Manager Class football (1, 2); Manager Varsity Baseball (3); Intercollegiate Athletic Council (1); Vice-President (3); Kappa Sigma. Enter, pride of Bridgewater. Fresh from hometown, this budding young landscraper has managed to hang on with us for three years and is still going strong. Aside from his studies, for he is something of a student, Lewie has quite a list of accomplish- ments. A model soldier for two years, he has elected to grace military circles with his influence and presence for two years more. In fact, even now he is the class soldier. Being a better manager than player he proceeded to annex the baseball manager- ship, as a Sopli. In great addition too, " Lewie " , being one of the most efficient hash-slingers of recent years has been added to the ancient and d able order of " S. S. S. " . As for his future — he ' ll care for that! JOHN S. LACEY " JACK " Holyoke, Mass. Kosary High Scliool 1896; Entomology; Alpha Sigma Phi. After " Jack ' s " two year " tour " in France, he dropped in on " Billy " and convinced him that his credits from Clarkson Tech were good enough to allow him to enter the class of ' 25, in our Sophomore year. He gave the Phys. Ed. ' 27 class a surprise in spite of his " Alderman ' s " , and this spring he ' s out to make the younger generation step for a berth on the baseball squad. From the number of " seegars " the Ent. Lab. receives from Jack, it looks as if he ' ll be Holyoke ' s next mayor. LOUIS PALMER LAVALLEE Worcester Classical High School and Worcester Academy 1895; Landscape Gardening. We at first supposed that this placid and erudite individual emanated from some elite suburb of Boston — Back Bay, perhaps — but it was a distinct shock to learn that Worcester was his burgh. He has, nevertheless, proved himself capable of big things at this institution. In the dining hall, for example. Palmer works at break-neck speed with big " Tarzan " Mouradian and goes about his task nonchalantly and unmindful of those about him. Palmer is a great lover of the novel and would more readily be discovered reading a good Sinclair Lewis or Hutchinson story than he would an agronomy or a physics text. This bibliophile never suffers ennui from books, for he applies himself with inexorable determination to everything pertaining to the intellectual. When Palmer has attained adequate experience as a landscaper, his classmates should be informed of the fact, so that they may have their little " nests " planned by one who knows how. 67 JOHN FREDERIC LORD •JOHNNY ' Methuen, Mass. Metliuen High School 1902; Microbiology; Freshman football; Varsity football (2. 3); Six man rope pull (2); Interfraternity conference (2, 3); Alpha Sigma Phi. Lord of all things in the avian realm was John F. when he departed from his father ' s chicken farm in Methuen. The calm gaze and thoughtful air of the inhabitants of the poultry farm seem to have inculcated themselves into the heart of the pensive lad. John prefers to put his thoughts on paper instead of wasting them in thin air as i.s manifested by his collec- tion of English themes. But John is not always ruminating. The -most terrifying dash of the wildest cock is not to be compared with the speed and dexterity of a plunge made by John thru the opposing line on the gridiron. ANDREW WYLLIE LOVE " HUCK " Auburn, Mass. Worcester South High School 190 ; Vegetable Gardening; Class Baseball (1, 2); Six-man Hope Pull (2); Manager Class Basketball (2, 3); Index (3); Varsity Baseball (2); Interfraternity Conference (3); Alpha Gamma Rho. When Love departed from North College, the freshman inhabitants began to learn of a new variety other than the species " Andrew Wyllie " . If ever the poor class of " 26 suffered some heart-rending injustice, the blame was sure to go to ' 25 and land principally on " Huck " , as we prefer to call this noble defender of our rights. Needless to say, " Huck " has been active in class activities, especially in athletics. As a twirler on the baseball diamond his " English " on the ball approached very nearly a similar outward curve in the morphology of his pseudopods. " Huck " is a bright lad mentally and aspires to great things in the field of agriculture. SAMUEL W. LUNT West Falmouth, Maine Westbrook Seminary 1903; Pomology; Class Baseball (1, 2); Class basketball (2, 3); Kappa Sigma. Enter " Sam " , class pessimist and pride of Maine. The old Pine Tree State was conscious of her act when she sent her Samuel to " Aggie " . Pomology is his major; we expect that Maine will lead in apple production in a tew years as she does now in potatoes. Tho he is very modest we remember him as the " King Swat " on our freshman baseball team from his numerous triples and home runs. As far as we know Sam is " woman proof " — yet, with his smile and fair face we cannot guarantee permanent immunity. Altho pseudo-pessimistically inclined he is a favorite with all of his classmates. WALTER FRANCIS MAHONEY ■DIKE ' Millville, Mass. U.xhridge High School 1902; Agricultural Education: Alpha Sigma Phi. " Duke " ' hails from the metropolis of Millville. Thoroughly disgusted with the roar of machinery in this busy town, he came to the backwoods of Amherst for a rest. But lo and behold — poor Duke was soon officiating in the kitchen of Draper Hall where the " clank " of dishes soon com- menced another deathly din in his poor brain. Duke has finally decided to relegate most of his pleasure to the realm of tobacco. He firmly maintains that if you have a good supply of the old nicotine in yer, yer all set ' HERBERT JOHN MARX " MOXIE " Holyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 1902; Chemistry: Varsity Football (2, 3); Class Football (1): Sergeant-at-Arms (1): Captain Football (4); Kappa Epsilon. " Moxie " came to M. A. C. with " Mog " as his side kick. When the collegiates saw them, they swore that Goliath and David had made up. For the first two years " Moxie " managed to lumber between classes by the aid of his peda! extremities. With the beginning of his Junior year " Moxie " realized that walking was too strenuous, so he purchased a Ford. That Ford has caused his downfall, for now " Moxie " goes out with the women and everything, and some say that he has even had his arm around them. He has taught several fellows to drive so that they could operate the car while he sat on the rear seat. " Moxie " is Captain of Varsity Football, and under his leadership the team is sure to go big. He is liked by everyone. CHARLES R. McGEOCH " MAC " Providence, R. I. Mt. Hermon 1899; Entomology; Varsity Football (2, 3); Class Football (1); Varsity Baseball (2); Class Hockey (1, 2, 3); Kappa Ep- silon. Mighty Charles, fighter, puckster, baseball player, and football hero — he was the one, who on 1925 ' s first " razoo " night, with padded mits, exhibited his goods and extinguished the sweetest hope of the Sophomore class. On the gridiron he has proved his worth. " Mac " has a bad habit — bad for someone else — of plunging through the line or through a pile with men all over him unwillingly taking a free ride. If a dash for liberty is any criter- ion, we have the possibilities of a marvelous runner in " Mac " . He would only need to be handcuffed and chased by a few howling Frosh a whole track team. " Mac " is yet to be reconciled to prolonged study, though such conditions as he has met up with have failed to stop him. 69 G. DONALD MESERVE " DON " Hudson, Mass. Hudson High School 1903: Entomology; Captain class rifle team (2): Index Board (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. It seems that " bugs ' and " Don ' are inseparable in as much as he has elected to major in Entomology and that another one, the " radio bug " has bitten him rather hard. " Joe Radio " as he is playfully called by his most intimate acquaintances may be seen at any of the wee small hours twirling a set of dials to see if he can ' t pick up something new or rearranging the hookup on a .set already so complicated that one gets dizzy trying to figure it out. It is rumored that he is to install some sort of a sending set so that he can keep a heavy line going to " the one " back in Hudson without having to wield a pen. GARABED KEVORK MOURADIAN " MOURI " Bridgewater, Mass. Bridgewater High School 19(1-2: Animal Husbandry: Class Football (1, 2): Varsity Footljall (-2); Six-man Rope Pull (1, 2); Class Basketball (1): Class Scrgeant-at-Arms (1): Q. T. V. As a member of our freshman eleven this big boy was a wonder at removing all obstacles from a schoolboy opponent to a ref- eree ' s decision to gain a victory: since then majoring successively under " Pat " . " Bull " , " Car! " , and " F. P. R " , has prevented his participation in the King of all college sports. This easy-going, big-hearted youth intends to spend his days in animal husbandry; we feel that his summer sojourns at Dutcliland Farms and his training here in the class-room, to say nothing of that in the hash-house, will fit him preeminentl.y for such. So long. " Mouri " ! Don ' t forget us. for we won ' t forget you. DAVID MOXON, JR. " DAVE " Holyoke. Mass. Holyoke High School 1901; Microbiology; Class President (1); Collegian ( " 2, 3); M. A. C. C. A. (2): Kappa Epsilon. " Mogen David " came to M. A. C. from Holyoke. " Mog " has a kind of literary instinct, and releases it by getting advertismeiits for the Collegian in the capacity of Advertising Manager. He is one uf the triumvirate of Marx. Zwizler. and Moxon. All started in school together in the kindergarten, and all are in the same class in the same college. " Mog " is not as strong as the other two for the women, but there is one in Holyoke who he has brought to house parties many times. " Mog " hopes to be a great Microbiologist. His cheery " how do " , and good fellowship will be great assets to him when he starts to conquer the world. 70 PAUL REDFIELD NELSON ■NEL " Holyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 1903; Chemistry. Because his original habitat is within such close proximity to Amherst, we see little of Paul about the campus except when class or college calls. Few get to know this quiet, unassuming lad but once you have penetrated his silence and get to under- stand him you will find a fellow with a dry sense of humor and a keen mind. Maybe he will startle the industrial world with some chemical discovery, but it will not arouse him a bit. ARTHUR M. O ' CONNOR ••c. p- Revere, Mass. Huntington School 1892; Agronomy. . lthough he helped win the war " Cap " is otherwise O. K. He does not grace the camp is except between classes and the daily seminar at billiards in the " M " building. " Cap " is gradually becoming an enthusiastic protegee of " Doc " Beaumont and he is intending to go into the fertilizer game for which he is admirably fitted. Botany 25 is " Caps " favorite sport, outside of his family. Sometimes we are afraid we are going to lose our " Cap " because of his fondness for Arizona, and the dry climate out there. But for all of " Cap ' s " failings we are proud oF him and also thankful that we weren ' t under him in the army. CHARLES F. OLIVER, JR. " CHARLEY " Brockton Brockton High School 1903; Poultry; Collegian (1. 2, 3); Class Football (1); Class Basketball (2, 3); I,iterary Editor 1925 Index (3); Editor Freshman Handbook (3); Assistant-manager Football (3). Did you ever see him wrinkle his nose in smiling? If so, you know " Charley " Oliver. We know him as an embryonic hellion, a darn good scout, and a tireless worker. The complete wrecking and nailing up of No. 3 North, and the nocturnal thunderings of the rolling ash can on the ironclad stairs of North College ' s East entry have proven the first fact; the second is self explanatory; his tireless work on the Collegian and Index as well as that of being ass ' t-manager of football speak for the last. Somebody else knows him differently — pictures don ' t lie. However, we will always remember Charley as the one who gave more for his class than any one else in it. We know that you have the stuff. 71 DONALD L. PARKER ■RED " North Adams Drury High School 1902; Entomology; Musical Clubs (1. 2); Sigma Phi Epsilon. Down from the hills came our " Red " Prom his fold, His quick wit abounding; his fame yet untold. And now he has shown of the triumverate Wine, women and song he ' ll ne ' er satiate. At home with the ivories — a producer of song — . ' rolling the ivories, he never goes wrong. Smooth boy, forsooth, yet his humor ' s well known — We like all his jokes e ' en tho they strike home. Hourly his smoke brings him nicotine joy From trials of the classroom where studies don ' t cloy. Jazzing the keys, cracking wise in " Enl " class Have left us bright memories of " Red " that never will pass. XAVIER P. PELTIER " JOE " Spencer, Mass. Spencer High School 1902; Entomology; Q. T. V. The " wire " city boy came to us without a nickname but " Joe " Peltier soon arrived via " Hamp " . His chief activity is Carnegie while the remainder of the time he is remarkably inactive until someone says bridge or bed. " Joe " is majoring in the course " Mastery of Eucking Bronchos " . He has succeeded well so far having only dismounted once when no order was given to dis- mount. Joe ' s chief attribute is humor of the driest sort altho that word dry sounds only too natural now-a-days. He has also been known to serenade the Abbey without ill effects altho he lived in close proximity during the early part of his college career. VEASEY PIERCE " VE. S " Dorchester Boston Latin High School 1902: Agricultural Education; Class Track (1); Class Relay (1); Class Hockey (1); Varsity Track (1. 2) ; Varsity Relay (2): Captain Relay (3); Squib (2, 3); Interclass Athletic Council (3); Business Manager 1925 Index; Academic .Activities Board (3); Phi Sigma Kappa. This easy going, yet most efficient business manager of ours is a well known figure on the campus and one to figure on when any work is to be done. He gave up a business (?) trip to New York to labor on this Index; he has accounted for many points in our track victories — an incarnation of flying Mercury may be seen in this fast flying quarter-miler. The facts that he studied in New York last summer, that he writes there occasionally, that he has a reserved seat on the last trolley from " The Mountain " and that, with lame excuses, he romps home very often force us to conclude that his feminine affinities are strong. Ti FREDERICK POEY FREDDY " Vedado Havana Cuba Institute de la Haljana 1899: Farm Management; Alpha Sigma Phi. Straight up from the land of balmy breezes, silvery moon, and lovable women Freddy eame and seemed to bring some of that romantic spirit with him. The fair damsels of the North mar- veled at his rapid fire flow of words and his wavy hair, and he has his pick of the lot from several women ' s institutions. It was thought at one time that Freddy had induced about half of Cuba to join him here, but they came and went and he alone remains to see his course through. FRANK EDSON ROOT •■PETE " Bernadston, Mass. Powers Institute 19()3; Animal Husbandry; Alpha Gamma Rho. A lad of agricultural proportions and even bearing a generic designation savoring of his agronomical lineage, " Pete " has proven true to type and cast his lot in the field of animal hus- bandry, although for a while he was trying to attempt a major in English. So far his training has been quite extensive, as evidenced by his association with the cows of the dairy barn, the horses of the cavalry unit, and the " fair lambs " from over yon mountains to the south. CHARLES FREDERICK ROSS •CHARLIE " Lee, Mass. Lee High School 1904; Entomology; Class Basketball (2, 3) ; Class Relay (3) ; Varsity Relay (3); Index Board (3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. Out of the West came ' •Charlie " like Lochinvar of old and he won his way into the hearts of his classmates from the very start. He has no need of the proverbial steed since his own legs can carry him over the endless miles without weakening. As a member of the relay team he has shown a clean pair of heels to many a runner. • ' Charlie " absolutely affirms that he has no need of any course in statistics since he has compiled them for this book and says that he has spent enough time digging out facts and figures to give him five credits. Take it from him that if you are looking for a ••gut " activity stay away from this department of the Index. 73 DONALD E. ROSS " KED " Berlin, Mass. Hudson High School 1896: Floriculture; Freshman football; Track (1, 2); Alpha Gamma Rho. " Red " is another of the favored few of us that tasted the mud of France. He survived the battle, became a benedict and joined our class. " Red " " takes his exercise crabbing a lev of us and rid- ing his bicycle. He took a hand as a football trainer; and well — " enuf said " " . Around the campus " Red " " is a valuable man, a dangerous man, and a liability because of his propensity for tossing the javelin and at the same time ruining them. " Red " is quite a chicken fancier (only the feathered kind now) and we feel that if he keeps on at the .=ame rate that he is going now he will Hood the market with eggs some day. Go to it " old redhead " " the clas.s is behind you. HAROLD F. ROWLEY West Wareham, Mass. Wareham High School 190.5; Chemistry; Freshman Baseball (1). This downy chinned youngster came to Amherst with many fixed ideas. He is almost a Cape Codder and his town boasts the shipment of most of the fruit for which Massachusetts is famous. Fred played baseball freshman year but soon the Amherst Gas Company found that they could not get along without him so he puts in the early hours of the morning to good advantage there. He is ambitious as is evidenced by the zeal with which he enters into his work. His ambitions lead him into another field; mention South Amherst and notice the most becoming blush. If he puts his ideas into practice, we will be proud to have known him. SAMUEL B. SAMUELS " SAMMY " Bronx, N. Y. National Farm School, Pa. 1900; Agricultural Education: Class Basketball (1); Class Baseball (1. 2); Varsity Basketball (2, 3); Var.sitv Baseball (1, 2); Delta Phi Alpha, " Sammy " first attracted attention when our class was but a week old, by defeating, in a most decisive manner, his towering opponent in the Freshman-Sophomore boxing scrap. " Sammy " lias played varsity baseball, but he leaves his greatest impress on I lie basketball court. None who have seen the Aggie basketball I cam in action can deny the important part played by this dim- inutive whirlwind. " Sammy " " shoots baskets as easily as he wipes L ' lasses in the " hash " " house. His modesty and geniality have won for him the respect of his ilassmates, and these very qualities will win for him in life even greater laurels than he gained in college. 74 ROBERP FRANCIS SAZxVMA " SAZ " Nortliainpton Noi ' thampton High Scliodl 1903: Entomology: Alpha Sigma Phi. This very learned-looking, light-hearted, happy-go-lucky satirist hails from " Hamp " and so far the charms of Smith have failed to divert him from an assiduous bachelorhood. " Saz " is our proverbial woman-hater. After collecting a unique list of nicknames from the baffled members of many departments of learning he has become a prepotent champion of Entomology, in which, as his present avocation and potential vocation, he ascintillates alone. There are no flies on von, Saz. IRWIN SCOTT SHERIDAN " SHERRY " Mansfield, Mass. Mansfield High School 1904: . nimal Husbandry: Football (2); Alpha Gamma Rho. Poor " Sherry " , what a crime the gods commited when they placed the curse of " work " on Adam and his descendants. The last survivors of the noble tribe of " Rip Van Winkle " art thou, and to think this terrible college life should be forced upon thee! Yet be patient! Perhaps the study of animal husbandry may yet set thee on a blissful pasture landscape where the grassy dew mav sooth thy careworn brow! GEORGE FRANCIS SHUMWAY " SHUM " Monson Springfield Technical High School 1901: Science: Class Football (1, 3): Class Baseball (1): Sergeant-at-Arms (3); Varsity Football (3): Senate (3)- Honor Council (3). Quietly this dark, husky hermit has moved among us, taking his share of honors on the football field and in the Senate chamber. " Shum " is well known to most of his classmates by his deep forceful personality and his dignified, manly bearing. Though very studious and cautious, his curiosity and unparalleled indepen- dence led him to the production of a familiar " Sulphuric " reaction in Chem. 25. Though posses.sed with no known affinities, he has such, we suspect from his eagerness to make the Friday afternoon train for Monson still, the " Waking the Baby " may have something to do with it. Ask " Mac " about that. 75 GILBERT SIMPSON " SIMP- Hdlyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 1004; Chemistry. Young in body, but old in mind — yea, an apostle of Ben Frank- lin himself — is Gilbert, often termed diminutively but respect- fully " Simp " . " Simp " is a most ardent defender of " practicalism " . He never could .see any sense to reading pretty poems about violets and the stars and fair maidens that die of lovesickness. " But now you lake chemistry fer instance — there ' s a course that ' s goin " to get yer somewhere. ' " Simp " practices what he preaches as is well demonstrated in his ability to care for and manage a small truck farm in the wilds of Amherst during his summer vacation. " Pax vobiscum " " Simp " old boy — although we do not suppose we may wish thee any of the time honored domestic bliss in the future. MARIOX F. SLACK Allston Hyde Park High School 190. ' 3; Agricultural Education: Roister Doisters (1, 2, 3): Delta Phi Gamma. An actress and a musician is Marion. She exercises her talents frequently in the early morning hours when the rest of the Abbey-ites are slumbering peacefully Then a " Ho, plant the flag-staff deep, Sir Knight " or a " Scatter flowers, sweet maid! " in melodramatic tones sets the echoes ringing through the corri- dors and serves better than a dozen alarm clocks to arouse the sleepers. Marion believes that variety is the spice of life and uses up her three nights a week accordingly. Her belief in this proverb also explains the reason for her leaving . .ggie at the end of her Sopho- more year to attend a school of elocution and her return to campus this year. If you see Marion with a worried expression on her face, you may be sure a Vet. exam, is coming or that .someone has said " Quiet hours " !ii her. WILLIAM ARNOLD SLOWEN " BILL " lielburne Falls. Mass, West Haven High l ' )0 ' -2 Landscape Gardening; Track (1, 2, 3). ttei Bill had been among us for a while we found that his I ail J outh had been in Billings, Montana and that he had snapped scalping knives with the Indian boys and had become enured to the effects of six guns and hard licker. Which environ- ment probably explains his habitual quietness. As a student, fame has come to him thru his ability to contort the simplest facts with complicated meanings and long words. As a man of society we have little to report exce])t that he has been wary of women and especially wary of red hair. 76 EMILY G. SMITH Lee High School 1902; Agriculture Education; Collegian (2. 3); Woman ' s Student Council (2, 3); Secretary W. S. C. (3). Another of the Smith species — yet she is a very special variety. Though Emily has a tame Ford that bounds merrily about the campus and which is trained to stand still any length of time without tying, chauffering is not her only accomplishment. If she does not get a Phi Kappa Phi key it will be because she does too many things outside of her studies for some one else. With a calm quiet air she rules the Abliey as House Chairman; as secre- tary of the Woman ' s Student Council and as one of the Collegian editors she wields a mighty pen. Beneath a quiet exterior she hides one of the richest senses of humor that ever broke into " prose or poetry " and one of the finest voices on the famous " Abbey Agonizers " , the third floor quartette. DUDLEY DeD. SPRAGUE " DUD " Melrose Melrose High School 1!)03: Animal Husbandry; Class Hockey (1. 2, 3); Varsity Hockey {2, 3); Class Football (1); Index; Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Dissatisfied, " Dud " tore himself from Boston University and with the settled conviction to show his stuff landed on M. A. C. With undaunted courage and confidence, he has attained more than common success as a hockey player, a student, and a rough-houser. In the years to come vivid memories will be with us of his good work in class hockey, his unexcelled marks in physics, his unexplained disappearances, and his prominent part in dampening the clothes and spirits of Florida ' s pride. More than these, those that know him will never forget that under his brusqu? and gruff manner he has one of the most altruistic and generous of hearts. " Take it easy. " Our best wishes are with you. GUST AVE TAUBE " CIS " New York City National Farm School, Pennsylvania 1900; Chemistry; Burnham Declamation Contest (2); Varsity Debating (2); Delta Phi Alpha. If there is nothing else to remember from our Freshman serenade days, we cannot so soon forget that diminutive gentle- man who volunteered to lead his classmates in cheering by calling for a " Long yea, — sh. sh! From a little man with quiet ways we could not expect colossal accomplishments, yet Gus has made himself heard in more ways than one. He became at once conspicuous in class scraps by tumbling men twice his size. But Gus is an orator as well as a scrapper, and when on the platform, he uses his reserve energy to great advantage. The literature he reads would be like so many words of Turkish to you and me — yet he derives enjoyment from it! 77 MILTON WIGHT TAYLOR " MILT " Cliatham Chatham High and Phillips Exeter Academy 1904; Chemistry: Class Football (1, 2): Class Hockey (1, 2); Class Baseball (1, 2): Varsity Football (2): Varsity Hockey (2); Varsity Baseball (2); Senate (3); Honor Council (2, 3); Inter- fraternity Conference (2, 3); Interclass Athletic Association (2); Class Vice-President (2); Banquet Committee (2); Kappa Sigma. And this is the receiving end of the " Bowlegged Battery " ! Our sympathy is with him in his morbid aversion for full length pictures. " Milt " has given the class great support in its activi- ties, being prominent in baseball, hockey, and football with no inconsiderable success, besides holding many important offices in the class. Though taciturn by nature, he is a great listener; in fact, the daily conversation proves so insufficient that he has to study with his eyes in a book, his ears in radio phones, and his heart tuned to the " .4bbey " . ROBERT J. TEMPLETON " BOB " .liinuiica Plain, Mass. West Ro.xbury High School 190.5; Landscape Gardening; Manager Class Track (2, 3); College Orchestra (2); Inde.x (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. A violet by the mossy stone — a flower that ' s born to blush unseen — Robert is as one of these. He passes like a ship in the night, except in the winter months, when fiddle in hand and stiff shirt on breast he shines with the glee clubs. The fair ones hold no charms for him, Terpsichore counts him among the lost ones, the goddess of wisdom claims him for her own. With Prof. Waugh he seeks to beautify the landscape, and if his record in his studies is a criterion of future success, he should make the old earth blossom like the rose. GORDON H. WARD Englewood, N " . J. Newton Classical High Englewood High School 1923; Poultry Husljandry; Freshman football (1); Freshman hockey (1); Boston Speaking Contest; Varsity Debating (1, 2, 3); Freshman-Sophomore Deflate (1); Hockey (2); Cross-country (3); President Debating Society (3); Burnaham Contest (1, 2); Manager Varsity Debating (3); Alpha Gamma Rho. The " Rock of Gibraltar " in spirit, mind and body, the same yesterday, today and tomorrow is this sturdy son of ' 2.5. Gordon has the cause of the American farmer at heart, and is calling upon all possible fields of human knowledge to fit him for the fray. That success is his — we are confident. His ability as a scholar, as well as his activity in both athletics and academics fully justify our hopes. 78 WALTER W. WHITTUM " WALT " Springfield Central High School 1902; Chemistry; Orchestra (2, 3); Kappa Gamma Phi. Woe be to the prof, who soars above the heads of a class of which Walt is a member. This pert, but otherwise placid, indi- vidual very often pipes up with a " Well, I don ' t see how you can say that " , or, " How do you expect us to get all that? " Many a time a prof, has been brought down from the ether to terra firma by the point blankness of this outspoken youth. Walt looks as serious as a fire in a powder mill, yet much humor underlies his emotionless exterior. If you particularly desire to derive enjoy- ment from his companionship, just ask him to whistle a tune. If you are not lifted into a state of exuberance by the blithesome- ness of his chirp, then you lack aesthetic appreciation. Walt cannot help but make good, for he is always diligent and cheerful.

Central High School idl (1); Kappa Gamma he a brunette, has been He says he cannot " get The Entomological and SAMUEL LAWRENCE WOODBURY " SAM " Springfield, Mass. Central High School 1903; Floriculture; Alpha Gamma Rho. From Springfield there has never sprung a lad of more globose proportions. In fact, poor Sam has such a huge reverberating space for his voice that when he speaks one hears but a shrill, yet hardly perceptible echo. Kunning true to conformation Sam aspired, on his arrival at Aggie, to big things in the field of Animal Husbandry. But. alas, Sam found, to his sorrow, the life of a herdsman to be too strenu- ous — since his motto is " Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we ' pass out " " . So Sam had to content himself with something of a more aesthetic nature, and thus he has decided to rest his blissful soul in the wreaths of Floriculture. May peace be thine, dear Samuel, fairer than Adonis over whom the Goddess of Beauty wept. 79 FREDERICK F. ZWISLER " ZWISS " Ilolyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 1902; Agricultural Economics; Class Football (1); Class liaseball (1); Varsity Football Squad (2, 3); Kappa Epsilon. Frederick flitted into our midst four years ago from the nearby rity of Holyoke. He has been seen with a never failing smile among us ever since except week-ends when he may be found in Holyoke or Northampton. Frederick is a liberalist — a thorough liberalist in all things, and is known among his friends as " Freder- i k Liberala " . With his winning appearance, his pleasant ways, and excessive energy, we feel sure of his success as an Agricultural Economist in the days to come. Adams, l . P. Aiken, H. W. Aldrich, G. S. Allen, E.

Boyd Laurence L. Jones Linus A. Gavin Clasig ftisitorp, 1926 IN September, 19 ' -2 ' ' 2, the class of 1926 made its first appearance on the campus, and was joyfully hailed by the faculty with a cry of " Welcome to the Cultural Goats " . We have never been formally designated as part of the Massachusetts Experi- ment Station, under some such title as " Educational Experiment Group " or " Scholastic Proving Ground " , but we have served in an experimental capacity from our first verdant appearance. We puzzled over pots and boxes of assorted grasses and grains, — and they don ' t give Freshman Agronomy any more! We read re- ports and publications and looked much and learned little, and finally Freshman Agriculture was established as a three-term course. Non-academically, 19 26 has proved her brain equals her brawn. For two successive years, she has dragged ' 2.5 thru the cold, wet waters of the Pond, — the first class in ten years to accomplish this. Altho ' 25 won the Night-shirt Scrap our Freshman year, we have proved that the so-called fragile Freshmen can grow to stalwart Sophomores by winning the Id ' iS Scrap. The Banquet Scrap. ' 1926 won it, and banqueted afterwards at the Bridge- way in Springfield, where many weird tales of the night ' s happenings were told. 1926 has representatives on all the varsity athletic teams, and supports her class teams as loyally as she does the varsity. ' 26 men are on the Squib and Col- legian boards, and in the Musical Clubs. Wherever there is work to be done, there is a ' 26 man to do it, might easily be adopted as a class motto.- But above, and after, and thru all, we are the Experiment Station. For two years more the following dialogue will take place whenever anyone has an idea or even a theory concerning class work — Any Professor: How would it do to have a course in Basketry (or Ford Husbandry or Plowing) ? All the Faculty: It might work out very well. To be sure, we will — Chorus: Trv it on 1926! 83 t opi)omore Clagg iVdams, Kathleen P.

Merrill XOTHER class has come to old Aggie, and all its members no matter whence ■ ■ they come, from Provincetown to Williamstown, unite in declaring that M. A. C. and 1927 are sure to be the best combination seen on campus for a long time. To be sure the year started rather inauspiciously with the sophomores winning the nightshirt parade and rope pulls; but after we got used to the ways of the world, (as portrayed by the class of ' 26) we got down to business and started to show just how good we were! In football we were more successful. Under the skillful guidance of Coach Gordon and Captain " Joe " Hilyard the team had a very good season. The ob- jective game, that against the sophomores, was fought and won in a way which pleased the class mightily. In hockey, our team defeated both ' 2-1 and " 25, but did not meet ' 26 as the ice was in poor shape. Basketball with " Red " Ball as coach and " Ken " Bond as captain had an unusually good season, although defeated in the interclass series by ' 26. It is, however, in academic activities that the spirit and loyalty of " 27 has been most apparent. Our men have made good in debating. Pickens, Haskins and Harris were members of the Varsity debating team against the University of Maine. Several made the musical clubs. On the Collegian Board and Squib Board there are freshman members. In Roister Doisters the class is well repre- sented, for there are three freshmen in the cast of " Dulcy " . The Banquet scrap is before us. and whatever the outcome we will meet it as good men and true, for we are true to Aggie, our Alma Mater. 95 € l)e Jf resi)man Clagg Adams, James P. Ames. Robert C.

" VTO man has done more to promote the physical well being of the students - upon this campus than he whose name heads this article. It has been through his earnest endeavor that athletics are now on a firm basis in this institu- tion. Prof. Hicks was born in the state of New York in the year 1885. During the years 1902 to 1903 he attended the Michigan Agricultural College, from 1908 to 1909, he was instructor of Physical Education in the Michigan State Normal College, at the duration of which period he received the degree of B.Pd. The next year he became a Hitchcock Fellow in Physical Education at Amherst College, Amherst, Mass. In the year 1910 to 1911, he returned to his native state and fulfilled the position of Director of Athletics in the Michigan State Normal College. The succeeding year he received the appointment as Assistant Professor of Physical Education and Hygiene at M. A. C. Today he is Professor of Physical Education and Hygiene and Director of Athletics. For many years prior to 1912 the construction of a new athletic field had been considered but for various reasons such a project failed to materialize. In the fall of 1912, Prof. Hicks asked permission from the President to visist several of the state institutions for the purpose of examining their athletic fields. Consent was given, with the result that twenty-three of the state colleges and universities were visited and their athletic fields carefully inspected. These investigations were the beginning of plans for the new field. In 1914, the actual construction of the field began, and was developed accord- ing to the plans recommended and drawn up by Prof. Hicks. M. A. C. is proud of this field and of those who lent their hands in its con- struction, but they will never lose sight of the fact that it was through this man who so untiringly gave himself to the task, that the dreams of her sons might materialize. All this time he has been working towards a program of athletics which will bring physical recreation for all on a strictly amateur basis. Furthermore he was one of the instigators of the New England conference; the eligibility rules of this conference are practically the same as those that he has had working in this college for the last ten years. Today, Prof. Hicks is held in high esteem by all that know him. With a man of such aggressiveness at its head the Athletics Department of this college is bound to continue its improvement and prove an invaluable asset to the college. 135 be Coacijeg Harold M.

GORE, Head Coach At the head of our coaching staff we have a man whose dynamic energy has been a source of inspiration both to the athletic teams which he has coached and to the student body as a whole. For several years Coach Gore assumed the responsibility of coaching football, basketball, and baseball, but for the past two years he has devoted his time almost entirely to football and basketball. Since the start of his coaching every team which he has produced has been of such high calibre as to build up for him an enviable reputation. However, Coach Gore ' s interests are not centered on athletics alone, for he also works for the elevation of student morale. We have in Coach Gore the spirit of " Aggie " personified. LLEWELLYN L. DERBY After graduating from Hudson High School in 1910 " Derb " attended M. A. C. as an unclassified student. During the late war he served in the medical department overseas for a period of one j ear. Since the war he has served as Instructor in Physical Education at this college. For the past three years he has coached the track teams. From meagre material he has developed teams which have placed well in all meets participated in. LOREN E. BALL " Red " is one of the best known of local talent who have graduated from " Aggie " . While attending college he played both basketball and baseball with great ability. Since graduating in ' 21 his time has been devoted to athletics, serving in the capacity of trainer of varsity teams and coach of freshman and two-year teams. EMORY E. GRAYSON " Em " Grayson graduated from this college in ' 17 after completing a college course filled with many athletic honors. He captained the 1917 basketball team which is one of the three outstanding teams developed at this institution. During his coaching period here he has asserted his versatility by aiding in the instruction of both varsity and class teams in football, basketball, and baseball. HOWARD II. GORDON The latest addition to our coaching staff is a member of the class of 192.S. During " Doc ' s " college career he played both baseball and hockey, captaining the latter team his senior year. His efficiency on the diamond and on the rink were very i)ronounced. At the duration of his senior year he received the ap- pointment as coach of Freshmen Athletics. A fine spirit of cooperation manifests itself in the teams with which he has worked. 137 Joint Committee on intercollegiate tijletics Officers Dean Edward M. Lewis Registrar Philip B.

A. C. in ' 98 by the Freshmen class - ' - ' of ' 01. The popularity of the sport steadily increased until in 190 ' ' 2 the first varsity basketball team of intercollegiate calibre was organized. The team was captained by J. M. Dellea ' O and the record of five games won out of eight played was a very creditable performance. For the next few years the sport suffered indifferent success due perhaps to difficulty in arranging schedules and finances. Indeed basketball was being censured by the students of many colleges resulting in the loss of popularity of the sport. From 1909 to 1917 varsity basketball on this campus was a thing of the past. Again in ' 17 mainly through the efforts of Physical Director Hicks varsity basketball was reestablished with E. Grayson as captain and Harold M. Gore as coach. A successful season that year resulted in the permanent installa- tion of the sport at M. A. C. From ' 17 on this branch of intercollegiate athletics has become more and more popular. M. A. C. has had sixteen varsitj ' basketball teams and has played one hundred and seventy-five games, winning 8.5 and losing 90. In the eight seasons from ' 02 to ' 09. " Aggie " played seventy-four games; won twenty -nine and lost forty-five. The eight teams following the resump tion of the sport in 1917 have played one hundred and one games; won fifty-six and lost forty-five. There have been only six winning M. A. C. basket- ball teams in the history of the sport; ' 02, ' 03, ' 17, ' 22, ' 23, and ' 24. The last three " Aggie " varsity teams have won twenty -nine games and lost twelve; they have only lost one game in the Drill Hall in three years, and have won one third of all the games " Aggie " has won. M. A. C. leads all state colleges in the New England Conference except New Hampshire. Since the reestablishment of basketball at M. A. C. three of the varsity teams have been outstanding; the 1917 team with four out ef six; the 1922 team with eleven out of fifteen; and the 1924 with eleven out of fourteen. The lineups of these three representative " Aggie " teams were as follows: 1917 1922 1924 McCarthy ' 19 f Smith, A. W. ' 22 f Templa ' 26 f Pond ' 19 f Tumey ' 23 f Samuels ' 25 f Grayson, E.

Love 140 PASSING through the most disappointing season that any baseball team could be asked to go through, the Aggie team emerged the winners of but one game out of the schedule of twelve. It can be easily called the most unsuccessful season that an Aggie team has ever gone through, but M ' hen the individual games are studied it does not seem so disheartening. The team began the season with the highest of hopes, for under the coaching of Herbert L. ( " Hubba " ) Collins, well known in Aggie athletics for four years, the men felt that they were prepared to give a good account of themselves against all comers. But in the first game, with Wesleyan, the 19-6 defeat which was handed the Aggies was a poor index of a successful season. One bright spot in this game, however, was the work of Gordon with the willow, for he hit safely four times in five trips to the plate. Syracuse was the second opponent of the season, on Ahunni Field, and they also handed the ' Aggie team a sound beating by the score of 10-,S, The Maroon and White did not find themselves until the ninth inning, when a vain attempt to equal ten runs of their opponents resulted in three. As in the AVesleyan game the fielding was ragged, and although Brunner pitched a good game as his first in collegiate ball he was not given the support due him. The game with Harvard at Cambridge was the best that the team had played thus far, but ten errors are a hard handicap to overcome, and though the boys came within one run of tying the score at one stage of the game. Harvard soon drew out of danger when Captain Owen,smashed out a home run, scoring two runs. The next two games, with Dartmouth and Williams, were also reverses for the Aggies, Dartmouth proving herself the better by a 17-5 score and Williams settling the outcome with a 12-5 defeat. 141 The first game with Amherst, on Pratt P ' ielcl, also turned out disastrously for Aggie when Leete pitched a shutout game while Amherst piled up five runs. In this game it was claimed that Leete pitched a no-hit, no-run game, but a scratch hit by Barrows which several of the scorers refused to credit him with prevented such a feat. In the game against Colby Coach Collins ' nine showed a marked improve- ment, but though the game was played on a wet field, under severe conditions, bunched hits by the Colby players resulted in a 10-6 victory for them. Aggie totalled more hits than their opponents, but were unable to come through when they were needed the most. In their game with Trinity, the eighth on the list, the Aggie players went like veterans and buried their opponents under a 10-1 score. In three innings nine Aggie hits went for eight runs and again in the seventh bunched hits and clever base-running brought in two more. Trinity scored their lone run in the first inning, but from then on, Brunner, pitching for Aggie, kept the hits few and well scattered, thus preventing any rally. The next game was with Bates, the visitors taking the long end of a 6-2 score, but again Aggie hit safely more times than did its opponents. Costly errors at crucial moments were the cause of the defeat. Aggie entertained Amherst in their second game of the season the following week and humbly bowed to the Sabrinas by the score of 15-5. Leete again pitched a fine game for Amherst, fanning fourteen batters, and issuing only two passes. The Aggie team did not play a consistent brand of baseball and weakened at times, not giving Brunner the support he deserved. In their second game with Wesleyan, on Alumni Field, the Aggie team did not fare so badly as in the first, but they were defeated by an 8-4 score which was a bit better than the 19-6 loss at Middletown. Winding up the season with a game at Williamstown, the Aggie team lost their hardest fought and best played game of the year by a 4-3 score. Playing heady baseball and giving Johnson and Brunner the best of support the team put on a pretty exhibition of baseball. The hitting was hard, Barrows and Cahill both getting home runs for Aggie, while Monjo poled out a circuit clout for AVil- liams. Barrows ' drive came in the first inning, and was a long hit to left field. Cahill, leading off in the second inning, duplicated it and had no trouble in getting home. Again in the sixth frame bunched hits by Gordon and Hilyard with an error by Fricke produced another tally. With Aggie in the lead in the ninth it 142 looked like victory, hut Fisher singled and scored on Monjo ' s home run, clinching the game for the home team. The team seemed to be particularly weak in the pitching staff, Coach Collins being forced to use all men who had never figured in college ball before. Gordon played a fine game in left field and was a sure sticker at the plate. Marshman played consistently at first base and was by no means weak at the bat. Barrows received in the battery, continuing his excellent work of the year before, and he played every minute of every game except against Wesleyan, when Kane went in in the ninth. Captain Sargent covered his territory well in right field and though small he proved an able man with the stick. Nicoll did good work in the infield, and was elected to lead the team in its effort to come-back during the coming sea.son.

The past schedule included two indoor track meets; with Worcester and Northeastern respectively. The season opened Jan. 20th with a race with the fast Williams team which decisively defeated the M, A. C. quartet. The second race was at the B. A. A. Meet at Boston, Feb. 3rd. The team came in second being beaten by inches by the University of Vermont. " Don " MacCready, captain of the relay team, en- tered the 1000 yard handicap race at this meet and won the event easily with a 26 yard handicap. At the K. of C. meet Feb. 17, the team succeeded in beating B. U. in a closely fought race, evening up for the defeat of the previous year. Roger Friend en- tered the two mile handicap held at this meet and by sprinting the last two laps placed second. MacCready gave Aggie ' s name a decided boost in the athletic world Feb. 24, at the N. E. A. A. U. Meet at Boston, when he placed second in the 1000 yard run and third in the 600 yard run. This deed is more commendable since he was pitted against such men as Cavanaugh and Welch of B. C. The weakness in field events proved the downfall of the track team in the dual meet at W. P. I. The relay team won. MacCready captured one first and one second besides running on the relay team. The final score hung on the outcome of the shot put, and a .second place was not enough to draw the team into the lead, the final score was 35-33. At Northeastern in the dual meet the team was defeated 54-24. The relay team was defeated. MacCready won the 600 yprd run and Iloger Friend won the one mile run. 1923 Winter racfe and Eelap cfjeouk Williams at M. A. C. Jan. Triangular (N. H., Vt. M. A. C.) at B. A. A. Feb. K. of C.

Owing to the inclemency of the weather both the runs and the field events were seriously hampered and time was slow. Captain Mac- Cready was the individual star for M. A. C. with nine points. The dual meet with Conn. Aggie on May 5 was lost 68-58. " Ed " Tumey won the broad jump and placed second in the discus throw. Tumey and Salmon broke the college shot-put record with a throw of 35 feet each. " Eddie " Bike es- tablished a javelin throw record of 153 feet 4 inches. MacCready was unable to compete in this meet because of injuries. On May 12 the entire track team went to the Eastern Inter-Collegiate Meet at Springfield. The team scored eight points. Captain MacCready placed second in the 4-iO, Thompson second in the low hurdles, Stevenson fourth in the two mile, and Bike fourth in the javelin throw. Captain MacCready, Irish, Bike, Snift ' en, Thompson, Nelson, and Stevenson were chosen to go to the New England Inter-Collegiates held at Tech. Field, Cam- bridge, May 18-19. The following four men cjualified to compete in the finals; MacCready placed second in his heat in the 440 yard trials, Thompson came in second in the trial heat of the 220 low hurdles. Bike placed fourth in the javelin throw, and Sniffen qualified in the trials of the 100 yard dash. In the finals Bike was the only man to score a point, placing fourth in the javelin throw. The point scored in the New Englands was the first scored in that meet since the 1920 season. The season ended with the Triangular meet held at Durham with the Uni- versity of Vermont and the University of New Hampshire. The University of New Hampshire won the meet with a total of 84 points. M. A. C. was second with 42 points while Vermont scored 37 points. New Hampshire showed unex- pected strength in the dashes and scored heavily in the field events. Stevenson won the two mile run for the second time. " Ed " Tumey won the discus throw and he again broke the college shot put record which he held jointly by a throw of 36 feet 4 inches. The mile relay team composed of Tisdale, Alger, Pierce, and MacCready won for the second year in succession. Captain MacCready estab- lished a new college record in the 440 yard run which he won in 50 3-5 seconds. 1923 Spring racfe g ctjebulc Norwich at M. A. C. Conn.

The Sophomore class furnished some good men. A Freshman cross country team was also inaugurated but it was impossible to arrange a schedule to give them competition owing to lateness of the season. The schedule opened with a race with W. P. I. over the home course. Cap- tain Stevenson was individual winner. Beem, a Sophomore, ran a very credible race and placed third. The race was close and the outcome was not certain till the end of the race. The final score was 26-30. The second race was with Wesleyan at Middletown, Conn., on Oct. 27. The race was close and fast. Captain Stevenson finished second. The race was scheduled to finish between the halves of the Wesleyan-M. A. C. football game. The final score was 28-29. The race at Williams was also held in conjunction with the football game with Williams, on Nov. 3rd. The men were troubled somewhat by the slippery condi- tion of the course. Captain Stevenson placed fourth and Beem placed fifth. The final score was 37-19. The race with Amherst was held over our course Nov. 9th. Captain Steven- son was individual winner in the exceptionally fast time of 27 minutes 3 seconds. Beem finished fourth. The score: M. A. C. 31, Amherst 24. The entire team went to Boston to the N. E.

The spirit of the team that was to represent Aggie was forecasted when thirty-five men gave up a part of their summer vaca- tion and put in ten days of drudging work in the heat of an exceptionally late fall in preparation for the opening games. Many men took advantage of the oppor- tunity to learn football and to help out the development of the varsity, irrespective of the fact that they would not make the team this year. Of a possible two- hundred and seventy men in the upper classes seventy drew equipment. Much emphasis was placed in giving the second team careful instruction, and Coach Abele did an excellent job with the squad which averaged from thirty to forty men during the season. Among the men on the scjuad there were only five letter men from the 1922 season, but with a wealth of material from the previous Fresh- man team. Rightfully was this team dubbed the " Little Green Team. " In spite of its name, the team took for a slogan " a real battle for every team we meet " and a majority of the opponents will testify that the slogan was followed up. The season opened with Rensselaer Polytech, a team that lost but two games in the last two seasons. This was one of the hardest opening games that Aggie has had in many years and it was a harder game to lose. The " Little Green Team " started off with a bang and after repeated efforts pushed across a touchdown and made good the extra point. A bad break gave R. P. I. two points on a safety. What looked like a sure 7-2 victory was turned into a 9-7 defeat through the line plunging of a two-hundred eleven pound fullback through a light line. Without question Aggie should have deserved to win the game against Bates. They completely outplayed them, making twelve first downs as compared with a 151 lone one that Bates made. They were doomed to defeat though when a punt earomed out of the arms of an Aggie player was scooped up by an alert Bates end who went for a touchdown. The point after touchdown gave them the victory. Captain Salman showed exceptional ability at his end. The " Pratt Field Jinx " held its sway and our old rivals, Amherst, won a bitter but clean fought game by a 7 to 3 score. A beautiful field goal by Jones looked as if Aggie would win by this means, but the forward passes used by Amherst were always dangerous, and a thirty-five yard pass paved the way for a touch- down iind victory. The team showed its real power when greatly outweighed by the Wesleyan club defeating them 13-0. From the very beginning the result was never in doubt, as the Aggie boys drove through the husky Wesleyan line on every play. They made three times as many first downs as their opponents, and carried the ball 337 yards to the 9.5 it was carried by Wesleyan. The line played a wonderful defensive game and time and again threw runners for a considerable loss. Williams, with a big, fast team, ran rough shod over Aggie ' 2.5-0; the wet slippery condition of the field gave their weight added advantage. Several regu- lars were kept out of the game due to minor injuries which could not be taken a chance with. In spite of the defeat several men showed well on the defense, Cap- tain Salman, Marx and Gustafson tackling like demons. Against Stevens the team showed some of its power and cleverness by running its opponents oft ' their feet and pushing over four touchdowns against one that Stevens made. Nothing but straight football was used, but this was sufficient to carry the ball 324 yards. All through the game the Aggies played smashing, hard football and many times it was necessary to take time out for Stevens men who could not stand the gaff. It was also noticeable that not an Aggie man had to be taken out of the game on account of injury. Feeling their power displayed in the Stevens game and eager for revenge for the last year ' s game, the team put in a week of the hardest kind of work in prepa- ration for Tufts. As in every other game of the season, Aggie was again out- weighed. She put up a wonderful battle in spite of the handicap. As was the case last year, Ettleman ' s toe was the cause of Aggie ' s defeat. From the 35 yard line he booted a wonderful drop kick that gave them the necessary three point margin that won the game. Toward the end of the game Aggie was again driving down the field but the time was too short to make another touchdown. 152 It has been remarked that Aggie has wonderful material for the coming year, but the coaching realizes that games were lost this past season due to the inex- perience and greenness of the raw material, and the fall of 1924 will see a better Mass. Aggie team only through the application of the same formula that started to produce results the past season: " Work, work and more work. " To the casual observer of the M. A. C. aggregation lost five games and won two, but to the student of the great autumn sport there are some interesting points about these games contained in the following statistics.

Handicapped by an erratic weather program, suffering a severe setback by the loss of its captain and playing against colleges represented by twelve or more men of equal ability, this little team " carried on " . With the exception of Yale and Dartmouth games the outcome of each struggle was in doubt until the final whistle was blown. The team was coached by " Doc " Gordon, captain of the ' 23 team. The spirit and knowledge of the game which he instilled in the members of the squad was reflected in each game. Four veterans, Capt. Goldsmith, " Art " NicoU, Eric Lamb, and " Chick " Tewhill, formed the nucleus with which he had to work. Amherst opened our season here and although we lost the game it brought out the fact that the " Agates " had a real team in the making. At Hamilton the team, though defeated, again showed a powerful attack and good teamplay. Albany Country Club was defeated with; the score being limited by the poor condition of the ice. The wealth of able substitute material accounted for Yale ' s overwhelming victory. Springfield was decisively beaten, but the joy of victory was lost by the serious injury to " Goldie " . Perhaps the best and closest game of the season was lost to West Point by 2 to 3 score. The result was in doubt until the last second. The same conditions prevailed at Dartmouth as at Yale, where an affluence of substitutes again spelled defeat. A whirlwind finish by a presumably beaten Williams sextet resulted in a five to one setback for our team. Amherst, our final opponent, was overcome in a struggle marked with fast and aggressive team work. 155 Capt. Goldsinitir.s leadership was inspiring in the six games in which he participated. Play during the entire season gave evidence of teamwork rather than individualism. As a possible exception to the above was the performance of " Shug " Kane whose work in guarding the net kept the opponents score re- duced all season. 1924 eagon January 15 Amherst at M. A. C.

The 1923 Freshman Varsity team was very successful and it showed up some good material. The question was not material, but team work. These youngsters certainly proved that " Aggie " has at last got a system of which we may well be proud. When the men reported for practise, " Kid " looked them over hoping optimistically. He discovered that " Larry " Jones had a long reach and so he decided he would make a center of him. His judgment was sound for " Larry " fulfilled all contracts. While all these things were worrying the coaching staff. Temple and Smiley were steadily improving their game, in fact, their improvement was so great, it made two of the letter men watch the game the most of the time from the bench. Samuels, a substitute from the last year ' s team, was a demon for sinking the pill. " Eddie " Bike, of course, needed no extra coaching as he had his heart and soul in the game and, because of that fact, he nearly finished his playing days from overwork. Now the team was ready for its first game, which was looked forward to vith a great deal of eagerness. Everybody wondered how the little green team would stand up under fire. Results tell. Wesleyan took the small end of a 40-19 score. There was a very little competition to this game. The next game was with Trinity. Well it ' s an old story with Mass. Aggie winning its second game 31-14. Now everybody looked forward to the next game. Aggie was on the map in the basketball world. " John " Harvard was the next victim. It was " Fritz " Ferranti that turned the " Crimson to Maroon " by sinking two neat baskets in the last few minutes of play and so placing the Agrarians to the fore. The next evening M. I. T. lost to the invincible " Agates " in a ragged game to the tune of 21-14. The team then came back to Amherst with a confident mien. They were praised and admired by everybody. Some of this admiration gradually seeped into the team and made them a trifle overconfident, which fact was brought out in their defeat at the hands of Stevens Tech. to the score of 21-23. 157 Cfje pas ketball Ceam K.hvard L.

The team soon had its chance to show its mettle by beating Conn. Aggie on its own floor. The winning streak was on again. Tufts was the next opponent and the game was a classic. Bobbie Barrows showed his worth in this game, after sitting on the bench the most of the season. AVorcester Tech. gave up hopes of beating the Agrarians and they carried home the light side of a 23-9 .score. " Kid ' s " fighting Agates then traveled to Kingston. They considered Rhode Island State not much to worry over, but they awakened at the last part of the game too late to bring home another win. Rhode Island got the game by one point 19-18. Williams put over the only bad defeat that the Agrarians had suffered by the score of 43-26. The Agates appeared to have lost or forgot all they knew about basketball. AVilliams had an extra good night combined with a good team. The ball did not seem to go through the hoop that night, although the Agrarians had plenty of chances. The schedule ended with a hard fought win over Univ. of Maine to the score of 32-21. The New Hampshire game was cancelled because of sickness.

The lO G baseball team would have met with greater success if it had not been for the fact that four of its best men joined the varsity squad. As it was the team won but two of the seven games played. The new ruling, no doubt, will be a boon to freshman baseball. The 1927 football team was coached this year by " Doc " Gordon. Despite the lightness and inexperience of the team and the consequential mediocrity of record, the team gave each of its opponents a run for its money. The first game played away from home was lost to the heavy Vermont Academy team by a 16-0 score. Greenfield and Deerfield next defeated the Frosh by the respective scores of 6-0 and 14-0. The season was happily concluded however, for after subduing Northampton High 19-6, the Frosh trimmed the Sophs in the annual classic by a 13-6 score. The 1927 basketball team enjoyed a fairly successful season, having won 7 of its 18 games. After having lost the first two games the team won four straight, losing the next game to the Conn. Aggie freshmen at Storrs by a close margin. For the remainder of the season the team met with invariable success, losing to Holyoke, Drury, and Arms Academy, and winning from Hopkins, Natick, and Greenfield. 160 :f resiftman ?ias!ebaU ClasiS of 1926 Lorin E.

Included in this legislation is specific provision for the training of collegians as potential officers for national emergency. It is held that young men with college education are the logical leaders of the masses in time of conflict and large sums of money are appropriated by Congress to quali- fy students as members of the Officers ' Reserve Corps. Since the establishment of a cavalry unit of the Reserve Corps at M. A. C. in 1920, the squadron has made marked advance and is now commonly recognized in the ofiice of the Chief of Cavalry at Washington as an efiicient student-military organization. As an indication of progress it may be cited the opening of the school year 1920 there were five upper classmen enrolled for the advanced military training, 1921 found this number increased to sixteen, 1922 to twenty-five, and 1923 to thirty-three. The custom of awarding the grade of Cadet-Major to a senior was started in the spring of 1922 when Harold E. Wentsch was in command of the student body. Lieutenant Wentsch, 0. R. C, subsequently was ordered to active duty by the War Department and detailed to the Cavalry School at Fort Riley, Kansas. Lieutenant Eyrie G. Johnson, Cavalry, U. S. A., was the second squadron com- mander. He took examinations for the regular army, prior to graduation, passed them successfully and is now assigned to Troop " A " , 5th LTnited States Cavalry, at Fort Clark, Texas. The present Cadet-Major, James L. Williams, while at- tending the R. 0. T. C. Camp at Camp Devens last summer won the pistol cham- pionship in competition with cadets from eleven New England colleges. He was the only student to receive a Pistol Expert ' s badge. Major Williams, at the fall horse show conducted by the Military Department, was awarded the handsome William A. Stowell cup for the greatest proficiency sho-«Ti by a cadet officer during the course in equitation. At the 1923 Training Camp the presfent senior cadet officers, in company with a unit from Norwich University showed such proficiency that they were twice complimented by being detailed as a mounted escort of honor by General Malvern- Hill Barnum, once for the Secretary of War and at another time for the Chief of Infantry. The latter. Major General C. S. Farnsworth, was so impressed with the military conduct of the collegians that he ordered the troop drawn up for his inspection upon arrival at Camp headquarters. At that time he addressed the troop in glowing terms, praising them for their interest in national preparedness, primarily, and secondly for their excellent showing. The War Department recognized the high morale at this institution when it granted the upper classmen distinctive uniforms at the beginning of the present college year. Lack of funds prevented the outfitting of the entire cadet corps 165 with other than the regulation clothing. Recent inspections, however, have so impressed visiting officers on official trips that they have promised their aid in securing the commutation for the entire squadron. M. A. C. is one of the six essentially academic institutions in the country where cavalry units are maintained. In addition to this number there are five military schools which are furnished with horses. The expense incurred by mounted instruction causes the number to be sharply limited and only colleges with splendid military records are considered in the allotments. There has been military training at M. A. C. under the Morrill Lsind Grant Act, which makes two years instruction in the duty of a soldier compulsory, since 1867, when the college was founded. The college has been enrolled at various times for instruction in field artillery and infantry but it is conservative to record that the highest morale has developed since the arrival here of the fi ' -st government horses for cavalry training on September 13, 1920. A comparison of equipment available at the time of the artillery training — two old brass field pieces — and that of the present time — sixty cavalry horses and equipment, the total value of which is $43,000 — shows to a marked degree the advancement of the college in the military department. Probably nothing has gone to give M. A. C. its present efficiency in this de- partment more than the development of the cadet officers. The squadron is administered in almost every phase of its practical work by the student officers. Their attention to duty and willingness has caused their training in command leadership to progress as outlined by the War Department General Staft ' with the result that they would be readily available to assist in the construction of a huge army of defense in time of national emergency. The need for leaders of the type of college graduates is emphasized when it is stated that of the 4,000,000 men in service during the World War, only 600,000 would be available if a call to the colors were issued in 1925. In his first year at college, a cadet is assigned to a troop as a private and re- ceives disciplinary drill. His duty is such as would be allotted to a soldier in the ranks if an army were mobilized. During inclement weather, instruction is theoretical. At the end of his freshman year, the collegian should be qualified to act as a junior non-commissioned officer in a war-time army. At the start of the second year, a sophomore takes small groups of the enter- ing class and carries on the instruction, thus starting immediately their practice in command and leadership. Men who were outstanding during their first year are given such sergeant and corporal grades as are available at the beginning of the second year after the assignment of the upper classmen. Equitation starts during the second year. The theoretical work gives the sophomore a comprehensive view of the duties of a senior non-commissioned officer of the regular establish- ment. 166 For those who elect to continue the course every opportunity is given to ac- quire the ability of actual command. iVs a result of three years training, seniors are found in the upper commissioned grades while the juniors are given appro- priate commands of their rank. Selection of the cadet officers is made by the Professor of Military Science and Tactics alone and consideration is given to scholastic work, ability to handle men, military bearing, popularity, and work at the R. O. T. C. camp at the end of the junior year. This field training is compul- sory and lasts for six weeks. Upper classmen are paid for attendance at camp and also receive remuneration during their junior and senior years at the rate of the daily government ration. Following his four years " course in military work, the student is commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Cavalry branch of the Officers " Reserve Corps. Subsequent promotion is provided for by examinations for the next higher grade which may be taken every three years. The army conducts correspondence courses with a view to equipping the young officers for higher command. The newly-commissioned reserve officer is then assigned to a unit of the Organized Reserves, a component part of the Army of the United States. Cognizance of his home or place of Inisiness after graduation governs the assignment. He is so de- tailed that should he be called to active duty in time of grave danger he would mobilize and lead to duty, men from his immediate locality. Upon proper appli- cation, a reserve officer may be ordered to active duty and sent to Fort Riley for a course at the Cavalry School. During such a time he receives the pay and allow- ances of his grade in the regular army. M. A. C. is proud of its World War military record which will become tradi- tion. One has only to read of the stirring patriotism of Alumni, Under-Graduates and faculty in the hectic days of 1917-1918 to appreciate the great loyalty and love of country throbbing in the breast of every man of " dear old Massachusetts " ' . Fifty-one sons of the institution made the supreme sacrifice under the colors and to read of their devotion is to cause the heart to beat a trifle faster and to revere the beautiful Memorial Building which will ever stand as a reminder of their sacrifice. And in the shadow of this memorial, drill M. A. C. " s troops, hopeful that they may never have to hammer the plow ' share into a saber but mentally confident that if the sanctity of thei r land is theatened their instruction in personal preparedness and ability to lead their fellows has not been in vain. 167 Cabet 0iiittv seniors Bike, E.

Belden, Musical Clubs 170 mt iilugical ClulJg 19234924 THE combined musical clubs have enjoyed a rather limited schedule of concerts during the past year. The season was started without a dance orchestra, it being thought the clubs could arrange a good program without one. This was later found to be futile. Since January a dance orchestra has been organized under the leadership of ' " Buddy " Frost and " Rus " Noyes. Needless to say there has been no difficulty in scheduling concerts since then. The try-outs held in October revealed a wealth of material in the upper classes heretofore latent, and also several possibilities in the freshman class. The seniors and freshmen have more men represented than either of the other two classes at the present time. The first concerts were held at Conway and Hadley. Both of these served to polish off the clubs and give them poise for the Christmas trip and also laid a foun- dation for further engagement.j. Only one concert was given on the Christmas trip — that at Rockland, Mass., the annual entertainment under the auspices of the Boston Alumni Association being omitted because of a falling off of attendance during the past few years. Both alumni and undergraduates feel secure in the hope that this concert will be revived another season. 171 During the second term concerts were given in Belchertown under the auspices of the High School, Northampton under the management of the Eastern Star, Florence with the patronage of the Unitarian Laymen ' s League. Amherst under the auspices of the Social LTnion, and Northampton at the Elks ' Home. The members of the clubs feel that the latter was the most successful of the year. Another notable feature on this year ' s schedule was the concert given by the clubs, Mme. May Fogg Benedict, Milo E. Benedict, and Mrs. May Rees Cance. It was intended that tliis concert should replace the annual concert given in the Amherst Town Hall. The entertainment was a huge success and will without doubt become an annual affair. As to the program, the individual acts deserve much credit. Erie Weather- wax has added to his collection of readings and pantomimes and holds his audience with undivided attention. The quartet composed of " Hank " Darling, " Jim " Williams, " Buddy " Frost, and " Rus " Noyes also rendered several numbers worthy of not a little credit. The trio selections by Loring, Perry, and Wood also added much to the program. In addition the clubs were fortunate in securing the services of Ivan T. Gorockhoff of the Smith College faculty as coach. He is indeed an accomplished man and the bearing and technicjue of the clubs bear witness to his constant ef- 172 forts. Much credit is also due the leaders and manager of the clubs, " Ken " Loring, " Rus " Noyes, and " Kip " Belden. They carried the burdens of the or- ganization and certainly fulfilled their obligations in a creditable manner. AVhile the clubs have doubtless experienced seasons more successful when viewed from the .standpoint of finance or number of concerts held, the season of ' 23- ' 24 will stand unique as the one with the best skill and esprit de corps on the part of the members.

Ben- jamin Gamzue ' 23, was the moving force in the formation of the society. The membership is made up of those who have taken part in a Varsity debate, either as speaker or alternate, and the student manager of debating. Men eligible for the society were Gamzue, Gold, and Sandow of ' 23, Dimock ' ii. Batal, Church, Guterman, Taube, and Ward of " 25, and Dodge ' 26. These were all elected char- ter members and officers for the following year chosen, President, Ward; Vice- President, Guterman, and Manager, Dimock. A debate with the University of Maine was arranged to be held in Amherst during the first part of 1924. With this debate, the Triangular debate in the M. C. R. I. Debating League, and one or two debates with Western teams touring the East, a better year for debating was looked forward to. But things did not materialize as hoped for. The Manager resigned and the President had to be appointed to fill the position. Then the Triangular League was dissolved by the withdrawal of Rhode Island. When the call was sent out for candidates for the team, there was not enough response to fill the positions on the team. The men on the teams last year were too busy with other activities. The Society thus spurred to action found two Freshmen Haskins and Pickens who had done well in their dual debate with Williston Seminary and were willing to try for the team. With Dodge and Ward and the two Freshmen to constitute the team, the outlook was more hopeful. However Dodge ' s health broke and another Freshman, Harris was found to take his place. The debates with teams from the west failed to materialize and others had to be found in their stead. The debate with the University of Maine took place in the LTpper Memorial Hall on the evening of February 18th before a large audience. The subject for the debate, as in the subsequent debates, was: Resolved, that the United States enter the World Court of International Justice. The M. A. C. team upheld the Negative side of the question, as in the subsequent debates, and put up a strong argument. However, the Maine team won by a vote of two-to-one. The follow- ing week the team met Boston University in Jacob Sleeper Hall in Boston on Mon- day evening. The oratory of the Bostonians won the contest for them by a 3 to vote from a doctor, a sanitary engineer, and an attorney. That Friday a third debate was held at Springfield with the Y. M. C. A. College. Here again the team lost by a close two-to-one decision. On March 27 and 28 a two man team will go up into Vermont to debate Mid- dlebury College and the University of Vermont. Both of these contests promise to be very interesting and close in the results. 177 i)t Eoi ter Boisterg ©ffiteis Frank P. Rand . Allan L. Dresser . Edward F. Ingraham H. Erie Weatherwax Robert M.

It was the first English comedy and was written in 1550. The aim of the association is to foster and enconrage dramatics at the Massachusetts Agricultural College. Membershi]) is open to any four-year student and is automatically obtained by participation in one show. Previous to 1916 we find a spark of dramatic interest in 1910 when the M. A. C. Dramatic Society was formed and presented " The Private Secretary " in Amherst, Montague, and Ware. In 1912 we find renewed interest and the adoi)- tion of the name " Roister Doister " . This organization, the " Roister Doister Society " presented one play a year until 1914 when both " Mr. Kelly from Kala- mazoo " and " The Comedy of Errors " were produced. In 1915 the only musical comedy in the history of the college was written and produced here — " Pluto ' s Daughter " . In 1916 the name " Roister Doister Dramatic Association " was adopted and still holds. Under this organization the following plays have been produced : " The-Arrival of Kitty " (farce) — by Norman Lee Swarton. " Are You a Mason. ' ' " " Officer 666 " . " Nothing But the Truth " (comedy) — by James H. Montgomery. " The Witching Hour " (drama) — by Augustus Thomas. " Student Vaudeville. " " The School For Scandal " (farce) — by Richard B. Sheriden. " Clarence " (comedy) — by Booth Tarkington. " John Epps " — by Frank Prentice Rand. " You Never Can Tell " (Pleasant play) — by Bernard Shaw. " A Successful Calamity " — by Clare Kummer. " The Truth About Blayds " — A. A. Milne. Also a dramatic recital of Ibsen ' s " The Doll ' s House " by Hortense Ncilsen was presented under the auspices of the Roister Doisters. In 1921 the Aggie Revue was enrolled as an annual production to take the place of the Fraternity vaudeville. The Aggie Revue is a class affair, presented the week before the final examinations of the fall term, and is usually com])rised of a series of varied and entertaining acts. It is under the direction of the Roister Doisters. Unlike many, most we may say, of the activities on the campus the Roister Doisters is self-supporting and money-making. As a result of this the organiza- tion presented the Memorial Building with $ 150 to be used in buying furniture for 179 that building. In recent years it has come out of each production well above board on the performance given at home. The season of 1923 is marked with two splendid productions, " A Successful Calamity " by Clare Kummer, given at Prom time, and " The Truth About Blayds " by A. A. Milne given at Commencement. Besides presenting " Successful Calamity " at the college during Prom, the cast travelled to Stamford, Connecticut, where they met with singular success, and to Boston where the play was presented at the Elizabeth Peabody House. An afternoon performance was presented in charity to the children of that district of Boston, while in tlie evening it was presented before an audience interested in the college, its affairs, and its students. " The Truth About Blayds " presented but once at the college was ex- tremely well played, and represented something new in the type of play presented by the Association. This year the members are working on " Dulcy " by George A. Kaufman and Marc Connelly, to be presented at Prom. It is a three act comedy and relates to the difficulties experienced by the business man who has a loving wife that insists on helping him solve his troubles, by arranging a week-end party for all his busi- ness associates. It is intended that this account will convey some idea of the extent and type of work of the Roister Doister Dramatic Association, but there is more. The members are awarded small mask pins in recognition of their connection with the association. In the winter it is not unusual for the members to journey " en masse " to Northampton when a good production is staged there. The Association has been generous with the surplus funds and has weathered many storms. The time has come when there is no need of a plea for support. The college is inter- ested in the Association, as is manifested by the large numbers which report for every tryout. On the whole its productions have pleased the audiences and now there is no doubt that each performance is looked forward to with interest and expectation by the student body. We may expect a future of better dramatic presentation, with an ever increasing interest in an organization of much worth- while intent and sincere backing as its members and associates have enjoyed. 180 Mmv Clutjg ICanDgcape rt Clu6 Carroll V.

Stevens ' 26 184 ' f}t College iSeiusipapet THE work of the Collegian is perhaps as little understood by the student body as the work of any other undergraduate activity. As long as the paper arrives every Thursday afternoon and does not contain too much advertising matter in proportion to the news the student body is uninterested in the " modus operandi " . It does not consider the hours spent in gathering and writing news nor the labor of editing and making up the dummy. It forgets the work of the business staff in getting advertisements and in securing prompt distribution of the paper both to students and to alumni. It does not realize the time necessary to balance the books or to read the proof. This condition accounts for some of the fault-finding. The first attempts to inaugurate a college paper were taken about 1890 but the present form was not adopted until 1909. Since that time the calibre of the work has been steadily improving until at present the Collegian is recognized as a college newspaper of the highest class. The work is all done systematically and thoroughly and in such a manner that members of the board get either a complete literary or business training merely from the performance of their weekly duties. We have seen it stated that the man who is on the board of his college paper is one degree worse than the man who never goes out for any activity whatever. But it is probably true that a man on the staff of the Collegian needs more real ability than does a man in any other organization on the campus. Within the past few years the Collegian board has gone through a period of total reorganization. Members are now assigned to definite departments accord- ing to their individual abilities and each department head is personally responsible to the editor for the news in his field. This has lead to a greater feeling of respon- sibility and to better development of individualistic style on the part of the members of the board. The hardest problem with which the board has to deal is that of competition for the board. Altogether too few men enter the competition and many of them become discouraged and drop out before elections. This is largely due to misun- derstanding on the part of the students as to the work done. Many men under- estimate their own abilities and many more are unwilling to spend so much time and get such a small tangible reward. Competition is open yearly to both fresh- men and sophomores and at least twice as many men should take advantage of it. The Collegian is primarily a newspaper of the student body. It endeavors to set forth student opinion and to bring out student comments on student problems. Its success or failure lies with the student body. At its present stage it is consid- ered successful but its future lies with you. 185 Sgte quib poarb H. Erie Weatherwax Russell Noyes Fred Briinner, Jr.. Editor Mary T. Boyd Laurence N.

Merlini 180 W ht ssie quib LIFE would be a pretty dull existence were there no expression of humor in it. Likewise a college campus without a comic publication would lack what goes to make up its life. Among men of college age and educational rank humor of a very sprightly nature flourishes and requires some sort of outlet. For this reason practically every college and university publishes a humorous magazine edited and managed by members of the student body. So the Squib serves as an organ of expression of this humor on the Aggie campus. It is one of the college academic activities, gaining a position on the Academic Activities Board in the college year of 1921-1922. Since then the staff has been able to put out a better magazine each year, one that has gained a more appreciative response from the student body. The issues published by the board in the past year are good testimonials of this fact, the magazine being on the whole, the best for several years. Beside fostering the humorous instinct of the student body, the Squib offers the student an opportunity to express his artistic ability. In this respect it has an advantage over the other college publications. That clever drawings are given rise to by such a magazine is testified to by the skillful work of Noyes ' 24 and Fras- er ' 26 in the issues of 1923-1924. A new aspect taken on by the Squib is its appeal to the " co-eds " . For the past two years two representatives from the " Abbey " have been members of the board and have made important contributions to the success of the paper in that time. Many of their jokes are stamped with the " Abbey " atmosphere, thereby giving the general student body a conception of the life at Abigail Adams Hall, a conception which otherwise would be limited to a few. In this way the Sq}iib has come to be still more representative of the entire student body. When compared with other college comics the Squib stands on a high level in its type of joke. Not relying upon the " low " type of humor and not employ- ing personal references, it maintains a standard of humor not unworthy of the student body and a position as one of the academic activities. 187 George W.

The reason why it should be the Juniors who turn out this book is part of the tradition which has been handed down without any particular explanation. May we venture a guess at the reason in saying that the Juniors are supposed to iiave little to do other than resting in preparation for receiving the responsibility of the college from the out- going Seniors. Along towards its- second year in college, each class finds itself facing the problem of putting out the book and at the meeting of the class, it unanimously votes to put out a book without thought of cost or work which necessitates its publication. A perilous undertaking it is both from a financial and from a physical standpoint. To start with it is a fact that never has an issue of the Index come out financially above board and the cost of production increases without any increase in the amount that the student body pays in taxes. Physi- cally members of the board need to be absolutely fit to stand the nervous strain of getting the material " dragged out " of those who are best fitted to write it. From the insignificant-looking phamphlet put out by the class of ' 71, the Index has pursued its wandering career down through the history of the college, recording this history in a somewhat complimentary manner. Soon as the art of printing became more common, the books enlarged. Then they started to include fancy decorations with here and there a picture of a noted faculty member or some outstanding individual in the class; this idea grew into having the pictures of all the members of the Junior class. The expensive cloth bindings of the old days gave place to splendid leather bindings and it seem ed as if each class tried to outdo the class before it. Cuts of every conceivable group were incorporated into the book; there was nothing in the college that was omitted. But with the tremen- dous rise in cost of putting out such a book there has come the tendency to cut down the book so that it may be put out at as low a loss to the class as possible. In cutting down on the number of things to be included we may have missed some of the things which it should contain, it may contain some things that should be left out: but the editors have striven to incorporate into this book those things which would make it as representative, as accurate, and as interesting to the stu- dent body as was in their power possible. 189 Jlolbers; of cabemic ctibities; Jllebals; golb iUcbalsJ Clifford L.
