When these now seemingly unimportant every- day experiences which we consider an inseparable part of our lives, will be shrouded in a great indefiniteness Then will be the hour of this Index, upon which the board has expended its best efforts. Now, its pages scarcely dry of the printer ' s ink, it is little more than a collection of campus incidents; then, it will be a precious chalice brimming with recol- lections of the delights of these, the golden years. It is for this purpose the board has worked; that the memories of the greatest experience in our lives shall not be lost to the men of " Massachusetts " .

L. Ashley came to the Massachusetts - ' - Agricultural College as Instructor in German Language and Literature. Holding a Master ' s degree in Arts from Brown LTniversity, trained for his special work by study and research in the University of Heidelberg, he brought to our College the dignity and the poise which is characteristic of the liberal thinker disciplined by the classical tradition. The biographical events which bear upon Professor Ashle y ' s preparation for his life ' s work may be simply stated. He was born at Medford, Mass., Sept. 6, 1880. First a country school boy, then prepared for College at the Boston Latin School, he entered Brown University, graduating in 1903 and remaining three years more as instructor in German and graduate student in Germanics. During this period of study he received the M.A. degree. The year 1906-7 was spent at the LTniversity of Heidelberg. Then followed a year at Bates College whence, in 1908, he was called to head the Department of German at M.A.C. In regard to his attainments in the world of scholarship it is sufficient to .say that he is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and furthermore that American students of merely average intelligence do not study Germanics at Heidelberg LTniversity. The qualities which now distinguish the man were manifested at an early age. Even as a boy he seems to have possessed the gift of a vivid and creative imagi- nation. He is thrilled by stories of the dogs of St. Bernard; he revels in the exploits of all-conquering story-book heroes; he dreams of crossing the seas and visiting strange countries and stranger peoples. But rarer than the gift of imagi- nation is the ability to incarnate the vision in deeds. This boy was a practical idealist; he prepared hijnself in Greek, and without a teacher, for admission to the Boston Latin School. Furthermore, he took up by himself and under rigorous self-discipline made considerable advance in the piano before he had received a single lesson in music. It can be seen that the child was truly the father of the man for the youthful enthusiasms and interests all bore fruit. Creative imagination has ripened into a delightful, whimsical and ironical humor which accompanies a keen insight into human nature; on the objective side it has led to a passion for gardening and decorative art. The dream of travel in foreign lands has been realized and Professor Ashley is our most traveled faculty member. Summer vacations find him in France, Spain and Italy, while in 1911 he extended his travels into Egypt and Palestine. His early conquest of a foreign tongue has gone on to the mastery of German, French, Spanish and Italian. The interest in music has developed into the thorough and exhaustive accfuaintance with musical history and theory which has enabled him to direct some of our students away from the current vulgarisms misnamed music and into a world of keen satisfaction and ever increasing pleasure. There is yet another field which this versatile man has made peculiarly his own. Professor Ashley is recognized as one of the very few American connoisseurs on French, Spanish and Italian antiques, particularly textiles such as laces, tapestries, velvets, brocades and ecclesiastical vestments. Certain of the leading art museums of the country owe not a few of their choicer pieces to this modest and indefatigable worker. His position at M.A.C. has been somewhat unique. In an atmosphere inimical to humanism where scientific practicality all too easily slips over into commercialism, and where the exigencies of democratic control are sometimes trying to the liberal spirit, he has maintained a commendable loyalty to the stable though subtler values of life and has not sacrificed principle to expediency or sin- cerity to personal preferment. The Profes.sor Ashley known to students in the class-room is an unassuming gentleman — quiet, poised, impersonal, patient and sympathetic with stumblers, gently ironical when dealing with pretence and conceit, firm in discipline. Year after year these qualities exert their silent, steady influence. He knows that there are no short cuts to knowledge, no magic formulae for the acquirement of foreign tongues; he asks for rigorous sustained effort, and those who make the sacrifice are never disappointed with the results obtained. It is the constant judgement of the students, and one with which, as a member of his first class at M.A.C. we can heartily concur, that " you learn the language with Ashley " . It is an encouraging index of the growing liberalism and deeper intuition of our student body that the Class of 1927 has seen fit to dedicate this book to one who represents so richly the qualities which intelligent men in all ages have regarded as their most precious heritage.

That interest is embodied in two questions, — " AVhat is he doing now? " and " What is your Major? " It would be interesting to combine these two questions and answer them by a comparison of majors and life-work for all alumni of the college. This, unfortunately is impossible, as majors, as such, did not exist prior to 1915. An interesting summary can be made of facts about majors of students from 1915 up to the present graduating class, however. Probably we have all, at some time or other, wondered what major was the most popular on the campus. In the order of their popularity, as expressed by the number taking them, the majors rank as follows: Pomology, Animal Hus- bandry, Agriculture, Agricultural Economics, Chemistry, Lansdcape Gardening, Entomology, Agricultural Education, Floriculture, Microbiology, Poultry, Botany, Dairying, Agronomy, Farm Management, Rural Sociology, Forestry, Rural Journalism, Vegetable Gardening, Home Economics, Plant Pathology, Economics Sociology, Biology. Not all these majors have been in existence during the whole time of 1915-1926. Some have been discontinued and others have been instituted as need for the change was felt. The Farm Management major was created in 1923; and Home Economics; and Economic Sociology, and Biology were founded as majors in 1925. Among the majors. Pomology has always held a prominent place. In 1923 it reached the height of its popularity, claiming in that year 20 per cent of the graduating class enrollment. Animal Husbandry is a close second, but has dropped in rank from 21 per cent in 1921 to 6 per cent of the class of 1926. Agri- culture has been discontinued as a major, giving way to more specialized fields of agriculture, but in 1917 it had an enrollment of 25 per cent of the class in its ranks. Agricultural Economics rose in popularity from 1 per cent in 1917, when it was started, to 17 per cent in ' 23, which year marked the crest of its popularity. Chemistry has always been a steady runner in the field of popularity and had at least 10 per cent of the student body in its major labs in the last decade. Land- scape Gardening is a favorite because of its appeal to the scientifically artistic student. Its claims are substantial, as it has had 8, 9, and 14 percent of the last three classes, respectively. M.A.C. is in good repute in the field of Entomology, and the major has been well patronized, having in 1925 graduates 19 per cent. Agricultural Education has risen steadily in the ranks from 2 to 15 per cent. Floriculture has ranged from per cent to 1 0. Microbiology has been on a steady decline from 6 to 1 per cent. Poultry is always a minor major, usually under 5 per cent. Botany has never accounted for more than 3 per cent of a class. Dairying shows a record of several years without patrons. Agronomy has had two students in its work since ' 18. Farm Management has reached a percentage of 7 in one year of its four in existence. Rural Sociology, Forestry and Journalism 33 have never been strong, and Journalism and Forestry have died a natural death as majors. Vegetable Gardening attained the 4 per cent mark last year. Home Economics is the youngest major, but bids fair to grow strong among our feminine constituency. Economic Sociology and Biology each had a representative in ' 26. This then, is the situation as regards majors at M.A.C. As far as the relation of work after graduation to major in college is concerned, it is hard to obtain sufficient information on which to base conclusions. The class of 1920 is the only one that has approximately correct and complete information on the present work of its members. From a survey of the available information, it would be safe to say that at least 90 percent of the graduates follow up their major with work that is correlated with it in some way. This has not been true among the earlier alumni of M.A.C. to such a great degree, for it is found that, among the alumni during the period from 1871 to 1921, approximately ,5.5 percent were en- gaged in agricultural pursuits and -15 percent in non-agricultural pursuits. We have not tried to draw any conclusion from this mass of data, but merely to present it for the reader ' s edification. Perhaps it will throw some light on where our major stands among many. Perhaps someone will evolve a theory about the present trend of student requirement as far as majors are concerned. At least, we are able to learn something about the history of our major that we did not know before, and our curiosity may be satisfied to some extent by the acquisition of this knowledge. 34 ( rabuate tubentg Arrington, Luther B.

Baker Philip H. Couhig Royal W. Potter Senior Cla si ||isitorp THE plaintive assertion that " The class of ' SG is merely a means to an end for the faculty " appeared • in our Freshman Class History. In our Senior History we can only change the tense of the verb and reafBrm the truth of the statement. We, the M.A.C. Experiment Station extraordinary, have contributed — in many cases quite involuntarily! — to many changes in our Alma Mater. We have seen Agronomy go, and Agriculture come. To our joy, we have seen Goessmann Lab. rise to its stately completion; to our sorrow we have lost President Butterfield to another M.A.C. far away from our " certain valley " . We have studied and survived amidst a wild maze of new majors, sub-majors, and _ an increditably intricate credit system. We have seen Arena parties go, and field parties replace pond parties; We were the last class to draw those complex- ities known as " Botany lab. work " ; and we were the last class to learn Physics under " Billy " Hasbrouck of beloved memory. Our voluntary contributions, however, have been no less. 1926 men have been responsible for M.A.C ' s most successfull athletic teams in many years. ' 26 men have been the mainstays of every team; they have also made for the class records in Scraps and Rope Pulls that will not soon be forgotten. Academic Activity achievements are also ours. Among other things, the Aggie Revue offering this year was, for the first time since 1915, an original musical comedy, with all the music by a 1926 man. Now the time has come when we must bid farewell to our college and our class mates of four years all too swiftly passed, and, with many memories of joys shared together, and of the self-taught lessons of friendship and co-operation as well as the lessons taught us in the classroom, we may truly say " Long will we cherish— M.A.C.

Griffin Ella Buckler Laurence H. Barney Herman E. Pickens Albert F. Spelman Gerald W. Amstein Junior Clasisi i|igtorp AFTER a persistant pounding on the door, the drowsy occupant of the room yielded and a member of the INDEX Board burst in. " See here! Where is that Junior Class history? " Junior Class history! The class historian was left somewhat perplexed. The Class of 1927! Just what had happened to the Class of 1927? The historian went back three years in his memory and recalled that excited group of strangers who had been " rounded up " in the Arena ' way back in September, 1923, for their first class meeting. He recalled how their defeat in the nightshirt parade has served only to bring them closer together; how they had pulled as a unit in the rope pull; how they had stood as a class behind the football, hockey and basketball teams that won for them a name on the campus; how they had fought together on the hill, until when they banciueted together at Springfield, the Class of 1927 had become a vivid reality. Then they had returned to the campus for their sophomore year, to stand firmly together for the enforcement of the Senate rules. The victory of the night- shirt parade and the defeat in the rope pull had been brilliant class experiences. ' 27 men had pointed with pride to their class teams, to their members in varsity athletics and to their virtual dominance of the field of academics. But the Junior year! What had become of 1927 as Juniors? The historian ' s reflections were at an end. He thought of the hurried little groups, busily segre- gated in their majors, that curtly elbowed past each other as they met on the cross-walks. He thought of the ' 27 men who had just finished their work for the football season. ' 27 men were everywhere in athletics: in basketball, in hockey, in cross country, in track — they would be in baseball uniforms in the spring. In academics ' 27 men were always present. They were on the Collegian, they were in the musical clubs, they were in dramatics, they were in debating. In their Junior year, ' 27 men were a lot of busy individuals. History of the Junior year! Histories are written for Freshmen and Sopho- mores. Seniors write their prophecies but Juniors — as individuals the Juniors buckle down to business and work for their majors and for the college; as a class they simply hibernate. 49 «« ESE ROBERT CALL AMES " saB " Tilton, New Hampshire Tisbury High School 1901; Poultry; Class Treasurer (2, 3); Treasurer (3); Track; Lambda Chi Alpha. This studious gentleman is one of those fortunates that start out from college with something more in their possession than the customary education. " Bob " is a watch maker of no mean ability. The brilliant suggestion has been made that Bob take Rural Engi- neering! Decidedly! Perhaps we may some day see him president of the Gruen Guild! The patience and perseverance that he applies in repairing cantankerous watches no doubt serves him in other fields, for no one has ever heard a prof, complain of Bob ' s scholastic ability. WILLIAM GERALD AMSTEIX " JERRIE " South Deerfield, Mass. Deerfield Academy 1906; Pomology; Varsity Football (2, 3); Class Football (1, 2); Class Baseball (1, 2); Class Captain (1, i); Q. T. V. This is " Joe Chemist " as he styles himself. Gerry claims that he has the record for apparatus breakage in Organic chem. One might say that as a chemist, Gerry is a good football player; because he is there on the gridiron. He merely forgets to change his tactics when he reaches into his chem locker full of glassware, that ' s all! Gerry ' s major, however, is Pom. so he is not very much upset by his remarkable technique! Gerry has a disposition and a grin of such good nature that he would melt a Galatea to life again. ANDREW BREMER ANDERSON " ANDY " Hudson, Mass. Hudson High School 1904; Landscape Gardening; Varsity Football (2); Class Football (1, 2); Lambda Chi Alpha. Who would ever think the possessors of this pair of football shoulders was a rather proficient pianist. " .-Vndy " is there however and accompanies his playing with singing, or vice versa. Which is it, Andy? One of the " Landscrapers " Andy is starting out, in his search for the good, the true, and the beautiful early in life. 50 PHILIP WOODELL BAKER " PHIL " Amherst, Mass. Amherst High School 1905; Microbiology; Index (3); Kappa Gamma Phi. Young " Phil " is a member of the local four hundred. He feels at home in a gathering of a certain group of young scientists, with whom he frequents the Chem and Micro labs. He has tried hard for the last two years to impart his enthusiasm to the cheering section at the games. We hope he will eventually succeed. In the short intervals of rest between micro labs and ath- letic games, Phil rushes several mysterious young ladies of the neighborhood. Phil is known to be extremely accurate in his attendance in chapel and classroom. LAWRENCE HILLMAN BARNEY, JR. " LARRY " New Bedford, Mass. New Bedford High School 1903; Agricultural Education; Class Treasurer (2); Collegian (1, 2); Six Man Rope Pull (1, 2); Class Football (1); Track (1,2); Phi Sigma Kappa. Stout seaman — this virile blond from the whaling town, whose fine vigor helped our six-man rope-pull to a victory over ' 28 — this roving spirit who can boast of his peregrinations to any landlubber. On the verge of wading into a new matriculation he decided to stick with us — good judgment, eh? He is accomplished with the pen — ask Major Kobbe — and more, he is a friendly chap whose acquaintance is an inspiration. A cogent sense of humor pervades his thoughts — but be careful — he shoots from the hip. As for autographed letters, he is Edward Bok ' s kid brother — a worthy collection. Larry, — if the Golden Rule is worth anything — you are worth a million! GEORGE ROBERT BERRY Northampton, Mass. Northampton High School 1905; Agricultural Education; Cross Country (2); Alpha Sigma Phi. Look at him! What flashes into your head imme- diately. ' Rodolph Valentino and all the other Posses- sors of Personal Pulchritude! George is one of these efficiency hounds personified. He can, if he so desires, run his marks so close to 60 ' s that he keeps his friends in deathly anxiety, or he can, by exerting himself, take differential calculus and get away with it. Will he get on in the world? Look at that face! He will! 51 " TiVI tT li ' J ' ' ! ' ■■ ■ RAPHAEL ALFRED BIROX " TICK " Amesbury, Mass. Amesbury High School 1904; Entomology; Varsity Track (2, 3); Varsity Cross Country (3); Freshman Baseball; Freshman Hockey; Theta Chi. No wonder Raphael majored in Entomology! It is finite logical that a Tick should be found in an en- tomological laboratory. By the same reasoning, it is cilwious why our child retires so early evenings — there ' s only a hyphen between bed and tick. The bug plans an innovation for next falls Cross Country races, when a shrill and tremulous whistle will replace the starting gun and cause our dissector to finish before his competitors have started. LEWIS HERBERT BLACK " LEWY " Williamsburg, Mass. Williamsburg High School 1906; Animal Husbandry; Varsity Football (2, 3); . lpha Gamma Rho. " Blackie " comes over from Williamsburg to major in An. Hus. In everything he is a hard worker, from football to his studies. " Blackie " is a mighty nimrod (■ ' ) and every once in a while lays aside his books to heed the call of the open to fish and hunt for a day. However, deer season is only open for a week and so we are suspicious of the true reason for his weekly trips to Williamsburg. If " Blackie " continues to work as hard after he leaves college, we expect the hills of old Wil- liamsburg to flourish like the green bay tree. FRANK JOSEPH BODEN " FRANK " North Wilbraham, Mass. Cathedral High School 1905; Pomology. Schopenhauer says that the more a man is able to live to himself, the greater he is, morally and mentally. We can only adduce that Frank may some day be a college president. Or maybe in 1955 we shall see the ultra-moderns tearing their hair over the new Bodenian philosophy! Frank turned in a paper in English 50 on Byron ' s religious views that read like Newman ' s " Apologia " ! 52 ■ HU.kMii S FRANK JOHN BOTULINSKI " BOTS " Boston, Mass. Jamaica Plain High School 1900; Poultry Husbandry; Collegian (2, 3); Kappa Gamma Phi. A quiet and inconspicuous boy as a freshman, Botts has shown his real character only in his sophomore year, when he resided in Stockbridge Hall. Stockbridge was that year a gathering place for the class of ' 27. Botts is really majoring in Poultry Husbandry, but he is somewhat sensitive on the subject, and claims that his major is Avian Pathology. It is to the credit of Botts that he is embued with a strong college and class spirit, and has never missed any athletic events on the campus. MAX BOVARNICK " MAC " Dorchester, Mass. Chelsea High School 1906; Agricultural Economics; Varsity Track (2); Statistics Editor, Index (3); Menorah Society; Fresh- man Track; Delta Phi Alpha. The redoubtable editor of Statistics for this im- portant publication is here pictured with his ever- present smile. " Mac " seems to fill the much needed role of the man-of-all-work, for Ma. has given us that aid which is most necessary in a publication of this kind, the procuring of statistics. Much drudgery goes with this work and it is to Max ' s credit that in the most arduous tasks his willing aid and ready fund of sug- gestions has been most helpful. Max, I think, aspires to Phi Kappa Phi and there is no doubt in the writer ' s mind that he will make it. FREDERICK ROLAND BRAY " ROLO " Great Harrington, Mass. Searles High School 1903; Landscape Gardening. Roily often distinguished himself in Freshman and Sophomore physi-ed. classes. He was always one of the most active runners and the loudest yellers. Later, he succeeded in running through his studies in the same efficient manner. What Roily will be when he gradu- ates is a matter for deep conjecture. But we have pro- found faith in one who can manipulate his brain and drafting pen with such dexterity! 53 LAWRENCE ELLIOTT BRIGGS " LARRY " Rockland, Mass. Rockland High School 1903; Entomology; Varsity Baseball (2); Varsity Basketball (2, 3); Class Basketball (1, 2, 3); Index (3); Class Baseball (1, 2); Six Man Rope Pull (1, 2); Theta Chi. Laughing, lovable " Larry " tired of women and the seashore and came to Aggie. He is quite heavy and makes a good man behind the bat. His smile is noticed as he toddles across the basketball floor. His favorite pastime is swinging on grapevines and since he can ' t get hurt enough on those, he uses either an axe or hash- house dishes. Mebbe the grapevine experiment helps to keep him away from the clinging variety. FRANCES CLARA BRUCE " FRAN " Easthampton, Mass. Easthampton High School 1905; Agricultural Education; Collegian (2, 3); Girls " Glee Club (2, 3); Index; Delta Phi Gamma. We call her " Fannie " " , but she will tell one confiden- tially that she really prefers to be called " Fran " . " Fran " represents efficiency when she dons her glasses and prepares to write up " ' Co-Ed notes " ' in the Collegian. Last year she developed an heretofore unheard of talent and she is now a member of the Girls ' Glee Club and helped to make the last Aggie Revue Musical Comedy a " howling " success. " The sweetest noise on earth, a woman ' s tongue; A string which has no discord. " ELLA MAUDE BUCKLER Pittsfield, Mass. Pittsfield High School 1905; Agricultural Education; Sec ' y Women ' s Student Council (2, 3); Class Historian (1); Class Secretary (2, 3) ; Delta Phi Gamma. Ella is our best cheerer and most popular co-ed of ' 27. We owe much to Ella who has boosted Co-Ed life in many ways — Pep does not express it and Ella keeps something going most of the time, and uses all her efforts in making things a booming success. Life is not all play, however, and on Ella rests much of the re- sponsibility of the Women ' s Student Council. We also know her by her unusual success in the 4-H Club Work. 54 -■■ -■iV|T7 ffT7rtf ' = ' ROBERT WALLACE BURRELL " BOB " Abington, Mass. Abington High School 1905; Entomology; Freshman Football; Freshman Track; Varsity Track (2, 3); Aggie Revue (1, 2); Theta Chi. Burly " Bob " Burrell comes to us from the South Shore in earnest pursuit of knowledge or, we might say in pursuit of bugs, for Entomology is his major. If he puts the energy into chasing bugs that he does into heaving the discus, we pity the bug he lands his hands on. As a true descend — Ent. of Adam, " Bob ' s " fate is closely allied with the fatal apple. If you don ' t believe it, ask him. JEAN MATILDA CAMPBELL " BEANY " ' West Medford, Mass. Medford High School 1904; Agricultural Education; Girls ' Glee Club. Too few of us know Jean well, for she is one of the newest of our classmates. We cannot help wishing that she had spent all of her time with us, instead of those two years at RadcHfle. Jean is a combination of three splendid qualities: good nature, remarkable humor, and as for pep — Jean has enough for half the " Abbey Girls " . " Beanie " is an excellent pal, always ready for a good time. You don ' t know what you ' re missing if you don ' t know her! OSCAR ERNEST CARLSON " SKIPPER " Boston, Mass. Huntington Preparatory School 1893; Agricultural Education; Kappa Epsilon. As we recall it, this gentleman was very fond of proving to Prof. Halliday in French class the superiority of Sweden to France. They would both argue until they got quite red in the face and out of breath and then console themselves with the reflection that both countries were supreme in the realm of the intellect! Had the arguments been conducted in French, I think that Prof. Halliday would now have a rival to reckon with in excellently spoken French! 55 ' -- -TrrTnf- rr ' ' " ' CALTOX OLIVER CARTAVRIGHT " CAL " Northampton, Mass. Smith ' s Agricultural School 1902: Pomology; Varsity Baseball (2); Varsity Football (2, 3); Kappa Epsilon. Another of our midweekers. Tiring of the life of a machinist, " Cal " came to Aggie as a special but quickly decided to be a regular member of the gang, and cast his lot with 1927. Stalwart and true, he is as true a friend as he is solid. " Cal " was one of the fortunate men who travelled all last summer at the expense of the state, and if you want to know anything about back roads or apples, ask the boy from Easthampton. ALEXANDER RODGER CHAMBERLAIN " RODGE " Springfield, Mass. Technical High School 1904; Landscape Gardening; Class President (1); Honor Council (3); Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Index (3); Manager Freshman Football; Secretary Maroon Key (2); Lambda Chi Alpha. How deceptive looks are! Who would think that this gentle, good-natured visage concealed the turmoil and turbulence of a mind almost Byronic in temperament. Rodge is our artist nonpareil, of which one may be easily convinced by studying his sketch of the Old Stockbridge House. As Art Editor of this volume Rodge has worked harder than he ever wishes to again. We await impatiently the appearance of his signature with N. A. in addition to his B.Sc. CHARLES FLOYD CLAGG " CHARLIE " Barnstable, Mass. Everett High School 1904; Entomology; Varsity Track (2, 3); Collegian (2, 3); Freshman Baseball; Freshman Basketball; Freshman Track; Class Track; Alpha Gamma Rho. Behold Paddock, General Pershing, and Lothario (or Romeo) rolled, (or should it be stretched?) into one! Our elongated " Abbey shadow " is a glutton tor staying out until the " wee sma ' hours " and believing it his rightful college spirit, has refused to leave the M. A. C. library until he has been absolutely sure that all the doors have been locked. At the dish machine in Draper, on the cinders, or grandiloquently surveying his troops, he is a marvel to behold! Stay with it Charlie! 56 ROGER MADISON COBB " TY " Wrentham, Mass. Wrentham High School 1905: Pomology; Burnham Declamation Contest (2); Freshman Debating Team. " Roge " is a gay young blade from down in the eastern part of the state. He once confided to .me the fact that the only thing he has read previous to an argument between us regarding the relative merits of Shakespeare, was the Bible! How our youngsters change! Al- though still of an extremely religious nature, Roger now has even greater aspirations. The technique of a Valentino now appeals to his dashing temperament. View Halloo! Roge! EDWARD ANTHONY CONNELL " EDDIE " Maiden, Mass. Coburn Classical Institute 1904; Landscape Gardening; Editor-in-Chief Index (3); President Maroon Key (2); Class Vice-President (2, 3); Roister Doisters (1); Burnham Declamation Contest (1); Class Hockey (1. 2. 3); Band (1, 2); Chairman Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Junior Prom Committee (3); Informal Committee (3); Interfraternity Conference (3); Delegate National Interfraternity Conference, N. Y. (3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. There is no one in our class who could do Ed justice in a writeup of this kind. Familiarity with " Eddie " breeds only admiration! Rising out of obscurity first as a co-ed waiter and later as the president of Maroon Key his countless ac- tivities resulted in his being aptly nick-named " Joe Committee " . Nothing further need be said of Eddie ' s literary abili- ty after pointing out that he was unanimously chosen Editor-in-Chief of this Index. Socially, Ed is the envy of his class as our " Best dancer " . WENDELL BURNHAM COOK " COOKY " Townsend, Mass. Townsend High School 1904; Chemistry; Alpha Gamma Rho. " Cookie " is ex-26. We ' re afraid to say much about him, not knowing him too well, but we appreciate his friendliness. He is probably the only man who lives in a " harbor " but has not seen salt water! 57 ■ ■m . . .j.yy|a|y .|.....— CLARENCE ARTHUR CROOKS " TEEDY " North Brookf ield, Mass. North Brookfield High School 1905; Entomology; Varsity Cross Country (2, 3); Interfraternity Conference (3); Class Basketball (1); Class Baseball (1, 2); Alpha Gamma Rho. " Teedy " ' is one of these quite, unassuming souls who ever form a very necessary part of every college com- munity. As a consistent point winner for the cross- country team, " Teedy " is an unqualified success. Majoring in Entomology seems to have no terrors for him as one may see him daily poring over his desk in the Ent. lab. with all the enthusiasm of an " Arrow- smith " ! MAURICE ANDREW CUMMINGS " MAC " Cambridge, Mass. Mount Hermon School 1903; Agricultural Education; Index (3); Theta Chi. This Apollo-like person is a minister ' s son. At least " so the gentleman himself avers! Well! That " well " contained super concentrated skepticism, suspicion and incredulity! We go no further! Mac will some day, (to change the subject), be a magazine editor. He has that capacity for digging out things of historical value and interest, as is manifest in the several articles he has written for this volume, notably those on " Alumni " and " College Customs " . He has a ready wit and a huge smile that make him welcome wherever he may be. Mac isn ' t sure, however, that he ' s going to be a minister! SAMUEL CUTLER " SAM " Springfield, Mass. Technical High School 1903; Agricultural Economics; Burnham Declama- tion Contest (2); Delta Phi Alpha. Yes, he belongs to the G. A. R. O. T. C. In a uni- form he looks like Marshal Haig ( Haig). And sing — say, if you sat near him in chapel, you couldn ' t go to sleep on your feet while singing " Faith of our Fathers " , for a steam calliope hasn ' t a chance against Sammy, when it comes to a question of volume of sound, though of course that doesn ' t mean that he always hits the right note. As for his major, Sammy is one of the most Ag. Economical boys there is. Keep it up Sammy, J. P. Morgan the First will be looking for you after next year; mebbe. 58 - " ™ - ' HTTTt ' ' " RUTH EUGENIA DAVISON " RUTHIE " Bayamon, Porto Rico Bayamon High School West Springfield, Mass. 1904; Agricultural Education; Manager Girls ' Glee Club; Delta Phi Gamma. " Ruthie " needs no introduction. She is small enough to escape general attention, but don ' t good things come in small packages? Once you have heard of the Co-Ed Glee Club you must applaud her, for it is Ruth who gave it the impetus to get on its feet and once it was on its feet she has managed to keep it there. She is our Porto Rico Star and is really fluent with Spanish. RAYMOND FR EDERICK DIFLEY " RAY " Worcester, Mass. Barre High School 1905; Chemistry; Collegian (1, 2, 3); Phi Sigma Kappa. " Ray " left us at the end of our junior fall term, but we remember his good-nature and class spirit distinctly. We ' d like to see him return! WILLIAM LEVI DOLE " BILL " Medford, Mass. Medford High School 1906; Farm Management; Collegian (1, 2, 3); Manager Baseball; Interfraternity Conference; Kappa Sigma. " Bill " is quite popular on the campus, particularly with members of the baseball team to whom he has often distributed " Lucky ' s " and " I ' d walk a mile for em ' s " when his gum ran out. He finds time to type his very gushing " line " and see it come into print once a week through the columns of the " Collegian " of which he is one of the editors. 59 THEODORE AUSTIN FARWELL " TED " Turners Falls, Mass. Turners Falls High School 1902; Landscape Gardening; Freshman Hockey; Aggie Revue (1); Class Vice-President (1); Orchestra (1, 2, 3); Alpha Sigma Phi. " The lid ' s off, " he cried, and dashing madly out of bed he essayed to put it back on, only to find his pajamaed self exposed to the gaze of his open mouthed, wide eyed brethren. No ' copper ' ever swung a meaner stick than ' Farwell ' once seated before his well worn drums. ' Ted " is quiet in his manner, and his pleasing personality will certainly remain a memory to we who know him. RICHARD CAROL FOLEY " DICK " Portland, Maine Portland High School 1906; Animal Husbandry; Varsity Track (2, 3); Varsity Relay (2, 3); Class Track (1, 2, 3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. Flying feet and a Titian thatch distinguish our ' ■Paavo Nurmi " . Dick is one of our most consistent pluggers on the cinders and in the study room. If one can only break through his armour of modesty and reserve he will find one of the most sincere and likeable chaps in the class. DEMETRIUS LINCOLN GALANIE " DEMMIE " Natick, Mass. " Williston Seminary 1904; Landscape Gardening; Class Sergeant-at- Arms (3); Burnham Declamation Contest (2); Mana- ger Class Basketball (2, 3); Index (3); -Manager Six Man Rope Pull (2); Class Football (1); Class Hockey (1, 2); Varsity Hockey (2, 3); Class Track (1, 2); Alpha Sigma Phi. Here, reader, is energy personified! " Demmie " is the most efficient little arranger of class smokers on record! There is a crying need for such organizers in the world today and we are sure that Demmie will be ready and willing to fill the need. Demmie came to school in ' end- ing to earn his way through cutting hair. " VN ' ith all due credit to Demraie ' s tonsorial ability it is interesting to note that he now works in the Hash house! 60 i gg E LOUIS NOAH GOLDBERG " GOLDY " Wilmington, Mass. Wilmington High School 1904; Agricultural Education: Band (1, 2, 3); Class Football (1, 2); Index (3); Liberal Club; Cosmopoli- tan Club: Menorah Society; Delta Phi Alpha. Fond (?) memories of the band are recalled at the sight of this rubicund visage smiling at us. " Goldy " wields some kind of horn about twice as big as himself with such energy that when the awful mouth of the thing was turned toward us parade days, the screaming commands of our captain were lost in its awful thunder! Vastly unlike his horn, " Goldy " never speaks unless spoken to. It may be that in this tremendous reserve of his is hidden a mind that will one day be up and doing poetry or philosophy; who knows. ' HILDA MARGARET GOLLER Holyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 1904; Floriculture; Roister Doister (1, 2, 3); Girls ' Glee Club; Delta Phi Gamma. When you see a beautiful girl tripping across campus, note — has she dark, snappy eyes? If so, that is Hilda. " Her very frowns are fairer far, than smiles of other maidens are. " Did you know that Hilda has a practi- cal hobby? It has been of long standing, but is now progressing by leaps and bounds toward her life work. As a florist she has earned her entire expenses to enable her to be a student at M. A. C. For her success she will long be remembered. Hilda is also one of our successful actresses. RUTH EDNA GOODELL " RUTHIE " Westboro, Mass. Northboro High School 1906; Home Economics; Cabinet Y. W. C. A. (2); Girls ' Glee Club (2); Delta Phi Gamma. " Goodie " will long be remembered for her sweet, modest, and self-conscious disposition. We doubt if she has ever committed a wrong deed or broken a single rule. Just peep into her room at any time and " Goodie " is quietly and diligently studying — such a studious, but happy little body we have never met before. " On one she smiled, and he was blest. She smiles elsewhere — we make a din? But ' twas not love which heaved her breast. Fair child! — it was the bliss within. " 61 JAMES EMERSON GREENAWAY " EM " Springfield, Mass. Springfield High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Aggie Revue (1, 2); Ass ' t Manager Track Ci); Manager Track (3); Ma- roon Key (3); Index (3); Inter-Fraternity Conference (3); Secretary-Treasurer Interfraternity Conference (3); M. A. C. C. A. Cabinet (3); Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Athletics (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. Our model librarian! Em, in common with all the rest of us, has vacillated from one thing to another in his choice of his life work. He claims it ' s all settled now. " Huh! " we exclaim, very skeptically, unenthus- iastically, and hopelessly! Any one that knows just what they are going to do before they leave college ought to be shot! They ' re too lucky! Are you sure, Em. RAYMOND GEORGE GRIFFIN " RAY " Southwick, Mass. Westfield High School 1906; Landscape Gardening; Varsity Basketball (i, 3); Varsity Track (2); Class Basketball; Class Baseball (1, 2); Class Track; Maroon Key (2); Six Man Rope Pull (2); Interclass Athletic Board (3); Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Senate (3); Junior Prom Committee (3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. From the city of whips we have " Ray " , our blonde athlete, student and good fellow. His popularity with his classmates is evinced by his election to Senate. His ability to " trip the light fantastic " brought him election to both Soph-Senior and Junior Prom Com- mittees and his fleetness of foot has been a marvel in basketball, track, and baseball. Week-end trips to Hartford, supposedly to study the tobacco situation in view of his life work, have caused us wonder because Ray seems unusually light-hearted after these journeys. We all admire and like him — long may he " Ray-ne " ! EDWIN JACOB HAERTL " JAKIE " West Roxbury, Mass. Jamaica Plain High School 1905; Landscape Gardening; Varsity Football (3); Varsity Baseball (2, 3); Ass ' t Manager Basketball (2); Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Junior Prom Com- mittee (3); Maroon Key (2) ; Kappa Sigma. Although Jake claims to hail from Jamaica Plain, he really makes his home in Springfield. As a freshman we knew him as the " Crabbing second baseman " but he has developed into a multitude of characters: — one of M. A. C. ' s few three-letter men, drummer and saxo- phonist extraordinary, and good .student. In brief, he is an all-round good kid, even though he does get called " Jake " . ■BS S DANIEL CAMERON HANSON " DANNY " Dracut, Mass. Lowell High School 1905; Pomology; Ass ' t. Manager Football (3); Alpha Gamma Rho. " Danny " is another member of the great order of silent doers. As an " asst. manager " along with all the other neophytes, Danny stuck, with the result that he now holds the enviable position of next in line for foot- ball managership. Danny, in common with all the other members of this and any other college, is in doubt concrning his future work in life. The only observa- tion we can make is, that if he goes after it in the same determined manner with which he obtained his present enviable position on the football squad, complete suc- cess awaits his efforts. HERBERT JOSEPH HARRIS " HERBIE " Springfield, Mass. Technical High School 1905: Entom ology: Varsity Debating (1); Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Aggie Revue (1); Index (3). Rarely does this devotee of Hazlitt and Shakespeare fare forth from his hive at the Apiary, where, " tis rumored, he sought lodgment in order that, being in an atmosphere figuratively and literally as " busy as a bee " , he might pursue his entomological researches, practice his Glee Club numbers, and prepare his rebuttals, in peace. RALPH NORWOOD HART " BILL " Dorchester, Mass. Dorchester High School 1902; Agricultural Education; Varsity Track (2); Alpha Gamma Rho. During his college career " Bill " has tried hard to follow out two ideas, one: — never to have any afternoon classes, and two: — never to take the same girl to a col- lege function twice. Bill is addicted to Ag. Ed. but seems unusually fond of our English courses. It is rumored that the passion- ate outbursts of Keats, Shelley, Byron, etc., as de- lineated by Prof. Patterson in English 50, so enthralled Bill, that he forgot the necessity of studying the hum- drum memory passages and nearly listened to the afore- said geniuses another year. 63 - " " -.irTTii ' nrM ' " - ' RALPH WARNER HASKINS " RALPHY " Greenfield, Mass. Greenfield High School 1907; Agricultural Education; Varsity Debating (1, 2); Roister Bolsters (1, 2); Class Debating (1); Q. T. V. Ralph is a debater. Is that enough? He is also an extremely hopeful prospect for Phi Kappa Phi. He is also — er — witty! This last is his weakness! Ralph is clever in a debate, though. He seems to have an in- exhaustible vocabulary, which he unlimbers like a verbal roman candle, approaching, but not quite reach- ing, the sophomoric. He claims that he is going back to work on the farm; but he ' ll probably end up in the Sta te House as Congressman for the district. GEORGE FRANKLIN HATCH, JR. " BUDDY " West Roxbury, Mass. West Roxbury High School 1903; Landscape Gardening; Honor Council (1, 2, 3); Sec ' y Honor Council (2,3); Maroon Key (2); Class Vice-President (2); Interfraternity Conference (3); Senate Secretary (3); Banquet Committee (1); Theta Chi. " Bud " is one of the budding, yea, blossoming mem- bers of ' 27. Although he impresses one as being very serious, he undoubtedly has an active sense of humor which sprouts in that little smile of his. As a member of the Senate and of the Honor Council, he is a repre- sentative of the best of college institutions. His nick- name of " Incubator " does not necessarily mean that he knows a flock of chickens. THOMAS VINCENT HENNEBERRY " VIN ' Manchester, Mass. Story High School 1903; Entomology; Varsity Track (2, 3); Varsity Cross Country (2); Varsity Relay (2); Freshman Cross Country; Freshman Track; Maroon Key (2); Ento- mology Club; Phi Sigma Kappa. Manchester-By-The-Sea, — this curly-haired beauty is as romantic as the name of the town he comes from. Singing Beach might have produced his vocal ability but it probably served more to condition his timbers racing with the waves. He races the seconds up here in the " college town " , much too fast for a number of aspirants. He says that he may have not won many races but he played Milanion one day and captured the fair Atalanta. Dids ' t use golden apples, Vin? When Tom is not running, or studying his bugs, or rushing trays, (just step in the caf ' n see him sometime), he is urging some lively tunesout of a cornet. 64 - ' - y TTTTf TT tr ' — - ' JOSEPH R. HILYARD " JOE " Beverly, Mass. Deerfield Academy 1902; Agricultural Education; Varsity Hockey (2, 3); Varsity Football (2, 3); Class President (2, 3); Senate (3); Interfraternity Conference; Captain, Freshman Football; Captain, Freshman Hockey; Captain, Freshman Class; Q. T. V. Our class athlete and class president, candidate for class soldier, etc. " Joe " comes from Beverley where, in the face of raging sou ' westers and salt gales he thrived and waxed strong. It is said that the hardest thing to stop besides the 20th Century Limited booming through the Pittsburg freight yards, is Joe when he gets mad and decides to hit a line hard! ELLADORA KATHRYN HUTHSTEINER " HUTHY " Pittsfield, Mass. Pittsfield High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Class Secretary (1); Roister Doisters (2, 3); Index (3); Delta Phi Gamma. Elladora first distinguished herself as number one in the freshman intelligence tests. She has continued her success " on the boards ' with the Roister Doisters. Her literary ability is well known to her classmates and it is rumored that the writing of a novel will be Elladora ' s next achievement. MILTON GOFF JOYCE " TONY " East Providence, R. I. East Providence High School 1903; Landscape Gardening; Lambda Chi Alpha. Tony is the silent partner in the " ham, olive, chicken and cheese " business of Anierson, Thompson, Ltd. " Tony " is quiet but aren ' t we right in saying that he received three bids to Mt. Holyoke Senior Dance? Ergo, as Prof. Prince would put it, there must be something to the man! 65 I I, ' .i ji y j pT yf LEONID ALEXANDER KRASSOVSKY " LORNY " St. Petersburg, Russia. 1898; Pomology; Kappa Gamma Phi. If you want to establish hostilities with this prodigy of the Russian nobility, tell him you are a Bolshevik. When his own country turned red hot, Krass shipped over here to prepare for his future position as " Russian apple magnate " . The class has often wondered if Krass really tried to entertain them in Military lectures, of if he was just naturally that way. JOHN WILLIAM KUZMESKI " JOHNNY " Leverett, Mass. Amherst High School 1905; Chemistry. A quiet, dreamy lad in Freshman English, John has decided that there is a greater need for his painstaking abilities in Chemistry than in the field of the humanities. If John succeeds in mastering his chosen science with the same sure thoroughness he exhibited in English 1, 2. and 3, the coming generation may some day struggle through the complexities of Chemistry with the aid of some well written text-book from his hand. The best of luck, John! THOMAS BENJAMIN LeNOIR " TOM " Greenwood, Mass. Wakefield High School 1906; Landscape Gardening; Alpha Sigma Phi. Tommy, our self-convicted woman-hater, revels in the tales brought back by our fussers. " But, why waste time there? " he asks, " Ducks are much less elusive. " If history exams were ducks, we would have no fear for the feathered Anatidae. " Puddle " is quiet in his appearance before the public, but as friend to friend don " t every try to argue with him — you haven ' t a chance. But this characteristic is an asset, for with his tenacious spirit and level head, success is certain. ORLANDO HAMMOND LYMAN " HAMMY " Hilo, Hawaii Punahou Academy 1903; Farm Management; Class Basketball (2); Class Track (2); Index (3); Phi Sigma Kappa. If anyone says " How are Yer? " to Lyman, he is apt to think they are referring to the place where he makes his home, for smiling Hawaii claims him as a prominent citizen. He is worth claiming, believe me, for he is no dead loss when it comes to the higher elements of a good education. Quite to the contrary, — if you dont believe me, ask the Registrar. JOHN JOSEPH MAHONEY " RED " Westfield, Mass. Westfield High School 1905; Landscape Gardening; Varsity Football (3); Freshman Football, Freshman Basketball; Freshman Track; Q. T. V. The fiery partner of " Mahoney and Kane " our Gaelic vaudeville team. " Red " apparently thought North- eastern LTniversity too near the pitfalls of the wicked city so (as one million and one writers have put it) he ■ " cast his lot " with us. We like his football and basket- ball playing, his cheery disposition and true Emerald- Isle wit, and of course, his red hair. JOSEPH ANTHONY MALLEY " SPIKE " Watertown, Mass. Watertown High School 1900; Chemistry; Varsity Football (2, 3); Varsity Baseball (2, 3) ; Class Baseball (1, 2, 3); Interfraternity Conference; Kappa Gamma Phi. The memories of the famous class of 1923 were re- vived with the arrival of " Spike " on the campus, after a pleasant vacation in the Marines. A great contribution of this " Half-wit " , as he likes to call himself, was to in- troduce into our vocabulary many forceful expressions, such as " cut down " , " work out " , " take it easy " , " tough racket " and others. We shall always remember " Spike " in connection with the brilliant victory of the class of 1927 in the banquet scrap of the sophomore year. 67 -™ " - fTr - ' LEWIS JOSEPH MAXWELL " MAC " Stoneham, Mass. Stoneham High School 1904; Agricultural Education; Kappa Gamma Phi. " Joe " has so far specialized in two activities — that of argumentation and horse back riding. However, other accomplishments may be placed to his credit. He is a " shark " in mathematics and professes the greatest con- tempt for all conventionalities. Although " Joe " majors in Ag. Ed. he will probably switch over very soon to Politics. " Joe " is pleasantly eccentric. ROBERT WRIGHT McALLISTER " MAC " North Billerica, Mass. Lowell High School 1905; Chemistry; Varsity Football (3); Class Treasurer (1); Business Manager Handbook {II); Advertising Manager, Index (3); Class Football (1, 2); M. A. C. C. A. Cabinet; Alpha Gamma Rho. Apollo is passee! Despite his grecian profile and resemblance to Dan Cupid you can ' t trace " Mac " to mythology although he is a bit of a mystery. Though this careful, canny Scot is a wee bit taciturn, verj ' pre- cise, and somewhat dignified, he has a taint of the " Deil " , a love for good hard work, a heart for football, and of late — yes, it ' s work in the library, but not always with books, " Mac " " averring " otherwise without " loss of color ' . Chemistry claims him. EDITH MARY McCABE " EDIE " Holyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 1904; Home Economics; Delta Phi Gamma. " Ede " entered with the class of ' 26, but left and tried Skidmore for a year. As a result she found she pre- ferred " Aggie " as her Alma Mater and we are glad she did. Though she is apparently quiet and reserved, a favored few know " Ede " to be brim-full of pep and fun. Edith is the same pleasant and agreeable Co-Ed from day to day, we will all remember her unusual disposi- tion. 68 ERNEST GREGORY McVEY " MAC " Stoughton, Mass. Westbrook Seminary 1903; Agricultural Education; Class Baseball (1); Senate (3); Varsity Baseball (2); Q. T. V. To make this writeup appropriate we should make it " long " . (That ' s a pretty good number, what. ' ) " Stretch " prepped a year at Westbrook Sera in Maine, which institution, following his graduation, became a girls ' school exclusively. Apparently they couldn ' t find men good enough to take his place, or — well never mind this reason! Lord of the bowling alley, first baseman of the first order, cigarette fiend, and best of good fel- lows, we greet thee! ANGELO ALBERT MERLINI " ANGIE " North Adams, Mass. Drury High School 1904; Pomology; Class Baseball (1); Class Basket- ball (1, 2, 3); Squib (1, 2); Index (3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. Not all of us can be athletes, musicians, artists, but here in the dark-eyed " Angle " we have the exemplifica- tion of Johnny Beckman, Paul Whiteman, and John Held, Jr. " Angle ' s " staunch support of 1927 activities and his contributions to " Squib " and " Index " are certainly noteworthj ' . His philosophy of life is unique. To the professors, in his inimitable Latin manner, he states his iron-bound views and proceeds to either dis- miss the course with a wave of the hand to be taken later on or to pass it with such a grade as to make even our chem Ph.D. ' s scratch their heads and wonder if ■■. ngie ' s " technique (pronounced various ways) isn ' t correct! KENNETH WILLIAM MILLIGAN " KEN " State Line, Mass. Searles High School 1905; Animal Husbandry; Class President (1); Class Football (1, 2); Six Man Hope Pull (1); Business Manager of Index (3); M. A. C. C. A. Cabinet (3); Class Track (2); Academic Activities Board (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. This determined looking person is the Business Mana- ger of this publication. He sees that none of these un- scrupulous business men take advantage of us innocent, callow college youths! He manages efficiently, too. Ken had the honor of being the first class president of ' 27 and he then conducted the class as excellently as he has the business of the Index. We all predict that he will make a wonderful business man, — can you blame us? - ' ■ saaasi sjsi g ALFRED CLAYTON MORRILL " CLAYT " Xatick, Mass. Natick High School 1904; Pomology; Class Basketball (1, 2); Maroon Koy (2); Phi Sigma Kappa. Clayt is at least logical in majoring in Pomology, for lie is very well acquainted with peaches of one kind, and it is easy to see where his interest would extend to I lie kind that grows on trees. Far be it from us to say (hat he is a sheik, or anything like that, but at least it seems to be the truth that he is not out of his element when he finds himself in the company of the fairer por- tion of the population of this region. As a student, he seems to know his stuff, and that ' s saying a lot. FRANCIS REDDING MULLEN " MOON " Becket, Mass. Westfield High School 1905; Agricultural Education; Musical Clubs (2, 3); . ggie Revue (3) ; Sigma Phi Epsilon. " Mull " never cared to exert himself along scholastic lines, altho he maintained his grades above the average with ease. Dancers will not soon forget him as the pianist shak- ing his head in rhythm with the efforts of his " Melodious Music Makers. " " " Mull " has always been more than willing to lend his services to campus activities and tha college owes him a good deal. He is far from being a mollycoddle and his humor has a caustic subtlety which has gained him the utmost re- spect among his classmates. EDWIN LINCOLN MURDOUGH " LINK " Springfield, Mass. Central High School 1906; Landscape Gardening; Class Football (1, 2); Varsity Football (2): Class Basketball (1, 2, 3); Var- sitv Basketball (2, 3); Class Track (1); Six Man Rope Pull (1, 2); Lambda Chi Alpha. If you care to see an exact replica of this burly brute, look in the works of Praiteles for a study of a Satyr. The statue that I saw was so much like Link that I should have been willing to swear that the model was a direct ancestor of our little Lincoln! Link is one of the few old men on our football squad that Kid Gore has to work with this coming season; so anyone can tell, when they see this six feet of beef and brawn going over for a touchdown, that it is Lincoln, ' 27! 70 NORMAN BLAKE NASH " NORM " Abington, Mass. Abington High School 1906; Chemistry; Class Basketball (1); Varsity Basketball (2); Class Baseball (1); Varsity Baseball (2); Kappa Sigma. " Norm " is one of our class problems, inclined to be moody and hard to understand. On the diamond he certainly is a wonder to behold, because there he often gives vent to six or seven of his unlimited stock of moods during one game. It is rumored that the one-time object of his sincerest affection is responsible for the mysterious characteristics of this handsome hero from Abington. HARRY CHARLES NOTTEBAERT " HARRY " Lexington, Mass. Lexington High School 1905; Floriculture; Class Hockey (1, 2); Class Track (1, 2); Varsity Hockey (2); Varsity Track (2); Varsity Cross Country (2, 3); Roister Doisters (2, 3); Lambda Chi Alpha. This long-legged bundle of fiery energy can run! Harry ' s chief summer diversion seems to be attending various track meets and winning all the prizes. When this lanky youngster starts to stretch out into his cus- tomary timbervvolf lope, his opponents throw up their hands! (or feet). Harry is one of the innumerable possessors of the snappy come-back, see his red hair! And with the grim tenacity that marks his running applied to his life work, Harry is going to be a meteor! WILLIAM HILDRETH PARKIN " PARK " Chicopee, Mass. West Springfield High School 1896; Agricultural Education; Glee Club (2); Kap- pa Epsilon. Notice this man ' s picture carefully, — well, whenever you see anybody with tortoise shell glasses and a pom- padour you may at once mark them as a radical. Simple, isn ' t it? Radicals, you must know, are prone to argue. " Park " will argue with any one upon any subject from why they should have refrigerators in Greenland to the need for fur-lined razor blades among the Australian Bushmen! " Park " will no doubt end up in Congress; Start your campaign. Park! 71 «. .p| -y yi g y yV CLARENCE HOWARD PARSONS " HAP " North Amherst, Mass. Amherst High School 1904; Animal Husbandry; Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Rifle Team (2); Burnham Prize Speaking (2); Q. T. V. " Hap " hails from the wilds of North Amherst. Many are the hectic evenings when, upon returning from Glee Club concerts. Hap has endeavored to per- suade the driver to take him to North Amherst! But then with such a glorious grin, which has given him his nickname, " Happy " generally rode in state to his home town! Hap would make a good minister, he would also make a good farmer: — he will probably end up by being a railroad president! JOSIAH WAITE PARSONS, JR. " JOE " Northampton, Mass. Northampton High School 1905; Farm Management; Squib (1); Class Track (1); Kappa Sigma. " Joe " hails from the big city of Northampton and in spite of his urban residence he is strict in the pursuit of agriculture. We never hear much of or from Joe, but what he says is usually backed up with good common sense. It is rumored that he hits his studies pretty hard and his secret ambition is Phi Kappa Phi. Let ' s hope he achieves it. MERRILL HENRY PARTENHEIMER " PART " Greenfield, Mass. Greenfield High School 1904: Chemistry; Class Basketball (1); Varsity Basketball (2, 3): Class Baseball (1); Phi Sigma Kappa " Part " is one of these lucky fellows that doesn ' t have very far to travel to get home, as Greenfield is honored by his intermittent presence, and acclaims itself as his legal domicile. As a basketball player, — well words just won ' t suffice, you ' ll have to see him play, at least, it is true that he holds down a regular berth on the ' Varsity, and that says a lot. He elects to battle with the elements, so Chem is his major. Perhaps some day we shall hear of a new substance discovered by him and called, in his honor, Partenheimerite. 72 - - i m rrn f vr m ' " HERMAN EAMES PICKENS " PICKY " Stoneham, Mass. Stoneham High School 1905; Floriculture; Collegian (1, 2); Debating (1, 2, 3); Kappa Gamma Phi. Behold the David of the debating team. Rightly was Picky chosen class orator. Few of us who wit- nessed the debate with the team from the Univ. of New Hampshire shall forget the masterful way in which the diminutive Picky as last rebuttal speaker, summed up the entire debate in the first half of his speech and then proceeded to completely shatter his opponent ' s arguments. Picky is endeavoring to hide his light under the bushel of a Floriculture major. MARTHA ELIZABETH PRATT " BETTY " Hadley, Mass. Hopkins Academy 1905; Home Economics; Inde.x (3). " Betty " is one of our happy-go-lucky classmates, always ready to help one in trouble. Rain or snow, " Betty " smiles on. She made no mistake in choosing her major, as she is a most efficient cook and seamstress. " Betty " is another co-ed of 1927 who has made herself known in 4-H Club work and has won several prizes at the Eastern States Exposition. EVERETT JOHN PYLE " EV " Plymouth, Mass. Plymouth High School 1905; Landscape Gardening; Class Basketball (1); Class Track (1); Class Hockey (2); Musical Clubs (1, 2); Band (1, 2, 3); Junior Prom Committee (3); Aggie Revue (3); Theta Chi. If you meet a little fellow who is puffing in a curious syncopated time, you may be sure that it is " Ev " trying to work out a snappy new ending for the jazz that pours forth from that silver voiced trumpet of his. It is fitting that he be chairman of the Junior Prom Committee, for he spends much of his time close by the dance floor tooting his horn. Along with this, he lends a couple of hands at the daily meetings of the Ancient and Venerable Order of Scullions and Waiters. 73 JAMES BURBANK REED " JIM " Waltham, Mass. Waltham High School 1904; Chemistry; Class Football (1, 2); Class Track (1, 2); Theta Chi. " .Jim " evidently would be justified in claiming the title of class scholar, for he surely has the high marks. The fall term this year he was feeling lazy, so he de- cided not to take finals and so got out of them all, — the right way, at that. He is a good soldier, and a good scout in general. LAWRENCE DUNCAN RHOADES " LARRY " New Marlborough, Mass. New Marlborough High School 1905: Animal Husbandry; Roister Doisters (2); Alpha Gamma Rho. " Larry " is one of those husky mountaineers that never got rangy. We have heard that in his home town he is a " looper, " but here except in balmy weather he wears a plaid mackinaw to keep a check on himself. To his friends he is an easy-going, merry, " King Cole " sort of a genial soul with a lot of common sense, knowl- edge, and weight of character about his person. He is quite human, leaning strongly and romantically to the normal — (located at North Adams.) Despite his hermitage in the Hatch barns, he still majors in Animal Husbandry. OTTO HERMANN RICHTER " OTTO " Holyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 1904; Agricultural Education; Glee Club (2, 3); Alpha Sigma Phi. The boy with the voice! Otto is the possessor of one of those awe-inspiring bass rumbles which he de- lighted in using at roll-call at drill. Otto ' s popularity is attested by the fact that several times has he held the office of class president. He is the best of com- panions having a choice collection of clean stories quite refreshing amid all the smut we are forced to laugh at shame-facedly here at school. Best of all, however, is Otto when he sings, in that gorgeous voice, those fine old German Beer Songs! 74 EZEKIAL RIVNAY " ZEKE " Zichron, Palestine Haifa Real — Schule 1899; Entomology. Diligence, patience, and perseverance are the out- standing characteristics of this gentleman ' s nature. It takes perseverance to work for six years to get into college. This is Rivnay ' s accomplishment; and in the field of Entomology by dint of it, he bids fair to rival the best of the bug-hunters. He tends to Coleoptero- logy in his chosen science, (doesn ' t that sound profes- sional. ' ' ), and he certainly deserves the success he gives promise of gaining. NEIL COOLEY ROBINSON " NEIL " Arlington Heights, Mass. Colby Academy 1904; Landscape Gardening; Class President (1); Class Football (1, 2); Class Baseball (1, 2); Varsity Baseball (2); Maroon Key (2); Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Roister Doisters (1, 2, 3); Phi Sigma Kappa . Here we have twenty-seven ' s all ' round man, — student, actor, athlete, artist, and class officer. Rob- bie has been the life of two of our Aggie Revue acts, starred in a Prom Show, and held a position not far from the center of the stage in the premiere of Prof. Rand ' s Sidney. He played on our Frosh football and baseball teams and on our class teams the next year as well, winning the ' 27- ' 28 football war with a sixty-five- yard run with an intercepted forward pass. He was one of the outstanding heroes of our first banquet scrap triumph, his feat of spending twelve hours sub terra be- ing unusual, to say the least. Have we enumerated all of Robbie ' s abilities. ' Perhaps not, but we have sug- gested them anyway. CHARLES EDWIN RUSSELL " RUSS " West Brookfield, Mass. Charlton High School 1906; Chemistry; Freshman-Sophomore Debate (1). " Carranza " ! apt, is it not? " Russ " came to us as a defender of the frail frosh on Razoo Night. He did! Since that time he has " Hit " his studies as efficiently as he did his opponent on that memorable night. Russ seems to revel in military, (he was Capt. Brady ' s delight in Sophomore military), so that he now orders the rookies around in a manner so grim that if he doesn ' t scare them to death, they jump to obey! 75 DONALD CLIFFORD SAVAGE " DON " South Orange, N. J. Medford High School 1906; Farm Management; Rifle Team (1). " Don " will ever remain in the memory of the writer by reason of a cif;ar-l)ox fiddle on which it was his de- light to play. That fiddle, like Don, had individuality. Don gazes upon the seething life of the campus with a sardonic quiet rather confusing too many of the little flutterers we have with us. Don has a purpose in life; this can be sensed in his very bearing, (he rides a bi- cycle!) and there is little doubt that he will accomplish that purpose! DALLAS LORE SHARPE, JR. " MIKE " Hingham, Mass. Hingham High School 1901; Sociology; Q. T. V. Like a breeze from the " hills of Hingham " rotund " Mike " burst upon us. AVe enjoy his contagious laugh, relish his original wit and admire his tenacity in psychological views. " Mike " and " Stretch " are the staunchest of pals but ' tis said that " Stretch " has been granted a " degree nisi " . Good luck, Mike! WILLIS WHITNEY SHERMAN " SHERM " Boston, Mass. Dorchester High School " Sherm ' is noted for two things; — his ability to grow bulbs in wet cellars, and his famous drop down the Stockbridge Hall elevator well. Hermann Von Richter will elucidate on the first but of the second it is said " Sherm " will divulge very little. " A little thing goes a long way " but Sherm will always thank his lucky- stars (and Firpo, too) that the elevator was parked at the third floor landing and not in the basement! 76 ALLAN SNYDER " AL " Holyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 1904; Agricultural Education; Track (2, 3); Band (1, 2); Alpha Sigma Phi. " Al " seems to have one very excellent quality. The writer believes in credit where credit is due. Al is the ladies ' man par excellence. There is no denying it and it is the writer ' s personal opinion that Al glories in it! That right, Al. ' ' In the days of our youth, All wielded drumsticks, (real ones), in a most efficient manner, and seemed to delight in changing the rhythm just a little occasionally in order to get the whole col- umn out of step! ALBERT FRANCIS SPELMAN " SPILL Y " New London, Conn. Bulkelcy High School 1904; Chemistry; Class Football (1); Varsity Foot- ball (2, 3); Class Baseball (1, 2); Varsity Baseball (2); Class Track (1, 2); Q. T. V. The man who always comes in late to hash, refuses to clean his room in North College (because William will always do it) and runs like a cross between a rabbit and a 1908 Chevrolet! He carries the ball well but is inclined to fall on his face too much. " Horace " wipes dishes in the latest approved manner — waves the towel at one side, blows on the other, and — Presto! — the job is done! FREDERICK WALTER SWAN " DUCKY " Milton, Mass. Oliver Ames High School 1906; Landscape Gardening; Class Football (1); Class Hockey (1, 2); Class Track (2): Varsity Hockey (2, 3) ; Varsity Track (2) ; Varsity Cross Country (3) ; Q. T. V. Hand it to the kid who gathered in one of the tough- est of competitive letters — the cross country " M " . Ducky plays a whale of a game of hockey (ask the 1927 class team) and has been the scoring ace of the famous undefeated G-H-C-S-P-F combination. 77 «« e2 ARTHUR RICHARD THOMPSON " DICK " West Bridgewater, Mass. Howard High School 1905; Agricultural Education; Lambda Chi Alpha. Now what can you do with a man like this. Dick ' s motto is, " Ever, 99 44-100% pure! " The title he would fain be called is, " Purity " ! Can you beat that! In addition to being handsome, Dick is one of these cool, keen, calculating men-of-the-world that you read about. And then he tries to claim that he is pure! This is the chance we have been looking for! Let ' s hope the editors will let this pass for it is our firm belief that all these sweet simple girls at the Abbey should be warned against this turrible adventurer! — EDWIN ALBERT TOBEY " BRUTE " Belmont, Mass. Belmont High School 1906; Agricultural Economics, Cross Country (1, 2); Class Hockey (2); Class Football (3); Track (1); Phi Sigma Kappa. " Brute " is not short for Brutus. No, this is not a diminutive, but the whole works. If you had seen the man work in a banquet scrap, you would agree with those who know. He, nevertheless, gives the impres- sion that he is a very modest young man, in spite of his abilities. Ag. Ec. is his major, and although he isn ' t very big, his brain must have a lot of wrinkles in it, for that is a major that gives a lot of opportunity for the use of gray matter, and he is treading on Opportunity ' s heels at every other step. If you don ' t believe that, ask Opportunity the next time you meet her! HERBERT FOSTER ' ERITY " VIC " Woburn, Mass. Woburn High School 1905; Chemistry; Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); .lunior Prom Committee (3); Class Track (2); Q. T. V. The man about whom it is said the Wheaton girls are " just simply crazy " . They must be crazy. He shakes a mean hoof, drives a nasty Ford and handles a wicked ladle in the serving line at Draper. And — as secretary of the M. A. C. C. A. he helps hold down we erring ones to the " straight and narrow " . 78 INDEX «: 3SSS ALMEDA MARION WALKER " MEDA " Southbridge, Mass. Mary E. Wells High School 1903; Botany; Girls ' Glee Club (2, 3): Woman ' s Student Council (3); Index (3); Delta Phi Gamma. Almeda has really come to the conclusion that the day ought to extend over a greater length of time though, it is quite remarkable how much she can ac- comphsh in the short time allotted her. As a librarian she is real useful, especially when it comes to unearthing lost volumes, and it is her many hours of work that en- able her to attend M. A. C. " Meda " is a great lover of animals and it is a wonder that she has not trans- ported her pet raccoon to the Abigail Adams House. When you want to get advice on playing tricks, ask Almeda, she ' ll supply you with material in just one second. LEWIS HARLOW AVHITAKER " LEWY " Hadley, Mass. Hopkins Academy 1907; Agricultural Economics; Collegian (1, 2, 3); Manager of Musical Clubs (3); Kappa Sigma. " Lewie " is different from the rest of us in that he is probably the youngest member of the class. His collegiate cars have become quite famous from such exploits as taking six hours to get to the Worcester game, etc. Lewie and " Vic " Verity have had several thrilling experiences, not always with Lew ' s hack but often with " Vic ' s " grey charger, witness; the time they went to Wheaton Sunday chapel with their famous roadster! JENNIE MAY WIGGIN " JA ' MAI " Worcester, Mass. North High School 1904; Agricultural Education; Girls ' Glee Club (2, 3); Index (3); Delta Phi Gamma. " Jaime " is one of our best Co-Ed students of 1927 and we certainly needed her. She came to join us in 1924 from Worcester Normal School where she claim-, the atmosphere didn ' t agree with her appetite. ii - way she indulges in agricultural pursuits with special interest in Poultry and Floriculture. This in no way detracts from her determination to be a " schoolma ' am " . We can all picture her teaching! 79 ■— « i SaE JOHN EVERETT WHITE " JOHNNY " Abington, Mass. Abington High School 1905; Landscape Gardening; Musical Clubs (1, 3); Collegian (2, 3); Kappa Sigma. You ' ve heard about White lies but maybe you haven ' t heard about White " wise-cracks " . His brother, of " Greasy Spoon " fame, gained a reputation for the tribe which has been ably upheld by brother John. Between landscaping and playing his trombone in the band and waiting at the hash house, John intends to get his college life without showing his remarkable social possibilities. EARL FLETCHER WILLIAMS " TIFF " Whitinsville, Mass. Northbridge High School 1905; Landscape Gardening; Musical Clubs (1); Squib (1, 2); Roister Doisters (1, 2, 3); Interfraternity Conference (3); Kappa Epsilon. " A lo-o-ong yell for the team " And in that phrase you have the essence of " Tiff " Williams — enthusiasm itself, expressed before the eyes of the world through his activities as the varsity cheer leader. Fired with a love of the beautiful and artistic. Earl joined the Roister Doisters in his freshman year, and later decided to major in landscape. That same love, coupled with a worship for the goddess Terpsi- chore, has developed in " Tiff " both a liking for, and a popularity with, the gentler sex, as evidenced by his position as a co-ed waiter at the hash house. DONALD HAYS CAMPBELL " DON " Shirley, Mass. Worcester Academy 1904; Gee Club (2, 3); Aggie Revue (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. For some reason which we could never discover, Don left the renowned halls of Harvard to cast his lot with the class of 1927 of the Massachusetts -Agricultural College! On the Harvard wrestling team, Don proved the worth of his training in his battling in the Banquet Scrap. As a member of the Glee Club, with the addi- tional honor of singing in the quartet, Don has con- tributed materially to the club ' s success this year. 80 HUBERT GRAY ELDER " HUBE " Amherst, Mass. Amherst High School 1903; Agricultural Education; Theta Chi. This man ' s desk is trimmed up with the latest of fiction and he reads it all too. We care a lot for " Hube ' s " blue Cadillac and his black Ford. He is " Mike " Sharp ' s only rival for honors in the Psychologi- cal-forensic field. €x = 1927 Adams, James P.

Hodson Rachel E. Purrington Harold E. Clark Carolyn Dean Mario Capone Albert C. Cook Ctosi of 1928 THE CLASS OF ' 28 has assumed a position of some importance in this insti- tution. What we lack in talent we certainly make up for in numbers! When the end of our first college day was at a close the present juniors, (then sophomores), gazed at one another in consternation. There were frosh every- where! We easily won the boxing and wrestling bouts Razoo night and as easily lost the nightshirt parade. When we were allowed another chance at the doughty class of ' 27 in the rope pull we heaved gloriously with the result that innumerable sophomores ran their clothes through a wringer that evening! With much fear and trembling we approached the eve of the banquet scrap. Although we out- numbered the sophomores three to one the terrors of the unknown were too much for us and we went down to defeat, " battling gloriously " ! This, of course, was all in our freshman year. Now, as proud and haughty sophomores, we are en- deavoring to deflate the egos of the class of ' 29 with very little success, it would seem. The various interclass events were won and lost in about an even ratio, — who cares about inter-class events anyway once they are over. ' ' So far goes the history of ' 28. The open door of our next two years beckons us. May we make more renowned history in these two great years before us. 85 i:i)c S opf)omore Class Abrahamson, Howard Joseph Waltham Walthara High School; 1900; Chiss Hockey (1); Class Baseball (1); Lambda Chi Alpha.

Lane Clagg ?|igtorp, 1929 WE, the class of 1929, started out on the biggest adventure of our humdrum lives when, some few months ago, as a rather motley and leaderless mob, we came into a new land called " College " . At the boundaries of the " Land of Learning " , we were met by the er-er friendly Sophomores, each of whom carried an olive branch in one hand, and a paddle in the other. We were allowed to be- come a part of the college group under certain rules which, at first, seemed rather strange, but which, we were assured, had been so modified that they would not be difficult to obey. No longer are offenders punished by " Pond Parties " . A new form of punishment was instituted by the Sophomores which furnished much more amusement for everyone. Our Sophomore friends soon challenged us to several pleasant scraps. The first encounter, the sixty man rope pull was won by our valiant Freshmen. The football game came next; here the Sophomores went down to defeat. We showed our supremacy in the boxing and wrestling matches; but neither the Sophomores nor we would admit defeat in the six man Rope pull. Then, as obedient Freshmen, we decided that it would be well to let the Sopho- mores have a victory or two; so we allowed them to tear off our nocturnal attire during the Night Shirt Parade, and shoot baskets without interruption at the Interclass Basketball Game. It is with great pleasure that we are looking for- ward to future scraps with our " superiors " , the Sophomores. 97 E )t Jfre tntan Clasis adams, buell thompson adams, harold sweetnam adams, Stephen

Amherst 102 College Cusitom A MONG the most pleasant of our memories of four years at college will be - those that have to do with our experiences with college customs, and so, with the lack of accuracy and the abundance of aureate hues that usually char- acterize the reminiscences of the old-timer, we shall proceed to give a little light on those college customs that the undergraduate of today is accjuainted with in one form or another. The oldest activity which is internal as regards the college, is the historic six-man rope pull or tug-o-war. It dates back to pre-historic days, but is first mentioned by the class of ' 84. ' 87 is the first class that is named as having won. Back in the good old days, there was always a great deal of secrecy about practice for the annual rope pull between the Frosh and Sophs, for when the two classes came near each other when practice was in progress, there was a violent explosion, with the rope as the objective: and many was the secret sortie that had as an aim the possession of the opposing class ' s practice rope. The rope pull was always by challenge, and has been won by lengths varying from one and one half inches to over thirty feet. Chronologically parallel to the six-man rope pull has been the rush, in various forms. It was always impromptu up to the time when cane and pole rushes were tried for a few years. Now it is in existence in the form of the Night Shirt Parade, which we know. The predominating form of the rush was the campus rush, when the Sophs attempted to push the Frosh off from the campus, and this was a frequently recurring affair, until " 0-t and " 05 abandoned the idea in face of threat of expulsion in the event of its occurrence. Banciuet scraps have been in existence for some time, and ' 96 counted it a coup by being the first to have their banquet off campus, and went to Brattleboro, Vermont. AVith the spread of the activities, a sort of skirmishing warfare was conducted within a wide radius in the Connecticut Valley. In ' 07 and for several years thereafter, considerable money was paid for property damage by the classes, so the scope of scraps was limited to the campus, in self-defence, by the faculty, for the college was being criticized severely for the activities of the undergraduates. In ' 14, the scrap was on the common in Hadley, and the town fire department turned the fire hose on the combatants and cooled their ardor. When the banquet scrap was limited to the campus, property protection required rules that soon reduced the procedure to an all-night bivouac of the two camps with a battle by the dawn ' s first illumination. As a cure for this, rules were revised so that the ' 27- ' 28 scrap lasted all night, with recurring attacks by the Frosh on the encampment of the Sophs. This was a distinct improvement, and called for considerable strategy on the part of both classes. The custom of pond parties, that noble institution of the past was unofficial until ' 09, and it was not always the Frosh that went in, for ' 05, ' 07, ' 09 threw their 103 elders, the Sophs in for a swim. In ' 09, the parties were supervised by the Senate. This supervision was an indication of the trend of the times, for in ' 08, the class of ' 12, in atonement for their violent hazing, agreed to use their influ- ence in the cause of the abolition of hazing. Pond parties were the order of the day until the time of their abolition in ' 2.5, when the general trend of several years culminating brought about their end. The inter-class activity best known by people off the campus is the sixty man rope pull. This was designed to take the place of the class rushes, and was first introduced in ' 06. Although there were some misgivings as to its success, the fears were ungrounded, for it is the most successful event that is open to the public. At the time of the first pull, to preclude the shirking of the defeated team when the time for the wade came, the class captains were put on the part of the rope nearest the pond and the results were favorable. About the minor customs, nothing very definite is on record. Frosh caps seem to be a comparatively recent innovation, for the class histories say nothing about them, with the exception of that of ' 96, which says; " when we laid aside the Freshman derby to take the tile and cane " , which may indicate that Frosh were obliged to wear derbies, and again may only indicate that tile hats were " ver- boten " . The class of ' 13 is the first to appear in their Index picture wearing frosh caps of the present style. The reference to canes in the ' 96 history is inter- esting, for it indicates the struggle of the early classes to forbid the entering men the right to carry canes. ' 78 was the first class to substitute class canes for class pins, and evidently set a precedent for the succeeding classes. Jumping " nines " is a recently established custom, for, as far as records show, there were not set-in numerals until recently. Ringing the bell after victories was evidently a gradual acquisition among the privileges of the Frosh. In 1900, the college athletic letter was changed to an " M " It had hitherto been M.A.C., but was mistaken for the insignia of some athletic club so it was changed. The class of ' 04 first took action in composing their class yell with " Massachusetts " in place of the former " Aggie. " This was soon ratified by the college and the present long yell was inaugurated. The Index contained an editorial at that time stating among other things that " Agricultural " for " Aggie " was neither acceptable nor appropriate, while agriculture held a minor place in the curriculum of the college. The name " Massachusetts State College " was suggested as fitting. With the class of ' 03 the first co-ed came to M.A.C. With the succeeding classes the registration of co-eds increased to its present size. With their advent, there came into existence the society of " Peek-a-boos " which is perhaps the ancestor of the present " sororal " organization. Delta Phi Gamma. These college customs, and a few interesting facts for good measure, make the burden of this treatise. We do not pretend to have mentioned all the college cus- toms, for many of them are lost among the cobwebs of history and reminiscence. Times have changed greatly, for the college used to be self-contained, with all the students, or, shall we say, those present, in North and South Colleges. Then dormitory life and college life were one, and the dormitory doings added then, as they sometimes do now, a tang to the activities current to our sojourn here. But even without the dormitory life, the college customs in their varied manifestations, give a zest to the days that will soon be only memories. 104 Laurence L. Jones John B. Temple . Alton H.

It certainly has come to be a campus institution and entitled to its place in our yearbook. And not a little of its fame is due to the most con- genial, helpful, and sincere resident nurse. Miss Christopher, or " Cris " as she is known by her " gang " . From nursing our six foot athletes with their bruises and scrapes, to daubing a blister with whatever she does daub it, (is it iodine?), " Cris " has performed everything connected with minor surgical and medical work. The patients in the quarantine ward during the scarlet fever epidemic will not soon forget their sojourn, which ordinarily should have been a most apa- thetic and listless vacation, but which turned out to be a pleasant six weeks. The class of 1927 appreciates the work which the Infirmary is doing and as a slight evidence of this appreciation is dedicating this space in its book. 140 i:f)e Coacl)e£i Harold M.

Reynolds who also coached the track team. Professor Curry S. Hicks, the present head of the department, came here in 1911 from Michigan State Normal College, and it has been under his guidance that the work of the department has been expanded. Priorto 1911 the program of intercollegiate athletics was entirely independent. Coaching of the various teams was carried on by men hired for the season only. Harold M. Gore, who took charge of freshman athletics in the fall of 1913 follow- ing his graduation from M. A. C, was the first department staff coach. From then on the personnel and scope of the staff increased until in 1919 came the regu- lation requiring all teams to be placed under the tutelage of a department staff member. M. A. C. was one of the first colleges in New England to adopt this system. One of the notable achievements of the department was its inauguration and direction of the construction of Alumni Field in 1914. Before that time the sole athletic field available was the one between South College and the Drill Hall where football and baseball were played. The history of the building of Alumni Field is a long and interesting tale in itself, but suffice it to say that Professor Hicks visited twenty-three state universities and examined their athletic fields to gain an idea of the most desirable features to incorporate into ours, and then the students of Aggie " dug down " with picks and shovels and laid drains on the sight selected. The sole contribution made by the state was the donation of the land which it already owned. Although fortunate in providing outdoor facilities, the department has never received the requisite funds for improving the indoor equipment, which is no better today than it was 15 years ago. The Drill Hall floor was condemned for required sports in 1916, so only those who take part in voluntary athletics are forced to congregate in this absolutely unsafe and unsanitary apology for a gym- nasium. Due to the need for sanitary accommodations, the only required classes in physical education are those for freshmen and sophomores which are given during the fall and spring terms, and which consist only of outside organized athletics. A desirable innovation in recent years has been the encouragement of winter sports like skating, skiing, and hiking. Hikes to Mt. Toby take place every Saturday during the winter term, and facilities for enjoying profitable exercise nearer home have been provided by the construction of a toboggan slide and the purchase of an ice-planer for the Aggie Pond. The prime requisite of the department is at least the basement of a gymna- sium with sanitary showers, locker rooms, a swimming pool, and dressing rooms. Lack of funds rather than lack of definite aims restricts the department in its en- deavors. In its efficient conduct of intercollegiate athletics, the department ranks second to none, but in its task of reaching the man who really needs physical development, who cannot participate in voluntary athletics, the staff is hindered by the scarcity of necessary equipment. 143 1927 iSumeral Mtn Ames, R.

Davenport 146 1925 eagon THE 1925 baseball season, although not extraordinarily successful, was the most satisfactory season in the relation of victories to defeats since 1922. The schedule of sixteen games was the longest attempted since 1921. Coach " Red " Ball developed a nine which won six contests and tied two out of a total of sixteen played. Captain Carl Cahill proved to be of invaluable aid as a leader both offensively and defensively. He covered a wide range of territory in center field, and when at bat, showed phenomenal speed in reaching the initial sack. The first encounter of the season at Alumni Field against Norwich proved to be a thriller, the game finally being called at the end of the fourteenth inning on account of darkness. The score then read 1 to 1. The game was essentially a pitchers ' duel with the advantage going to Williams, the Norwich southpaw, who lasted the entire distance. Williams was the victor by the count of 4 to 3 in another long struggle at Williamstown on April 29th by virtue of two costly errors made by the Agates in the unlucky thirteenth. The hitting of the M. A. C. nine was much better than that displayed against Norwich; but errors were too frequent. The Aggie team gained its first triumph of the season by defeating Wesleyan 3 to 1, on Alumni Field. The visitors were unable to tally after their first term at bat. Nash pitched a very effective game, but was accorded poor support by his team-mates. " Em " Grayson ' s Amherst nine overcame the Agates on Alumni Field in a well-played encounter which was decided by Woodruff, the visiting pitcher, in the sixth inning. His hit brought in the winning run, each team having previously shoved one man across the rubber. " Red " Ball presented a changed line-up in the next game at Alumni Field, and Bowdoin succumbed to the Maroon and White by a score of 3 to 1. Excellent pitching, improved stickwork, and errorless fielding by the home team marked this contest. The Aggie nine went on a batting rampage against Clark at Worcester on May 16th and piled up more runs in their first appearance at the plate than they had in any previous game. Rainault, a portsider, and Malley, substitute re- ceiver, received their baptism of fire by serving as the M. A. C. battery until the fifth frame. The Agates subdued the M. I. T. Beavers in a prolonged encounter on Alumni Field which finally resulted in a 1 to victory. Taylor scored on a beautiful squeeze play with Captain Cahill at the bat in the last half of the twelfth. 147 a S£ Another whitewash was applied by the M. A. C. nine for a fourth consecutive win with B. U. as the victim. The Agates tallied thrice, but the visitors could do nothing with the smoky offerings of " Milt " Taylor, who registered the only no hit no run game of the season, and the first one for at least a decade here at Aggie. The Sabrina nine, with " Gerry " Woodruff on the mound, humbled the Mass. Aggie club a second time by timely hitting and heady defensive work. The Agates outhit their opponents, but threw away several chances to .score by careless base-running. Nash pitched craftily and certainly deserved better luck. New Hampshire topped the Massachusetts boys in another contest in which the losing team outhit the winners. The visitors pushed across five runs in the hectic eighth inning to sew up the game. The final score was 8 to 6, for the Aggies managed to come back and score three times themselves in the final session. The second tie game of the season was played at Medford against Tufts in a pouring rain which necessitated halting the fray in the eighth inning with the score knotted at 5 all. Several long drives were poled out, but errors were fre- quent, and the lead wavered from one team to the other. The next day, which was Memorial Day, the Agates journeyed to Middle- town and met an improved Wesleyan nine which secured sweet revenge for their earlier defeat at M. A. C. When the .struggle was over, AVesleyan boasted a 10 to 2 lead. The Aggie batters simply had an off day, while the Middletowners ac- cepted everything the Aggie pitchers offered and sent it back with vim. The most hectic spectacle of the season took place at Springfield College. Springfield was held scoreless after the fourth inning, but up to that time they had amassed a total of 14 runs, while the Agates scored only once. The Aggie nine completed three double plays, but to offset this, they committed eleven misplays Only seven of Springfield ' s runs were earned. Union nosed out the M. A. C. team at Schenectady in a game notable for its heavy hitting. Both teams collected a total of 24 hits, the individual star being Temple, who drove out a single, a triple, and a long home run. Union did its best work in the sixth session by tallying five times and driving Taylor from the mound. The Massachusetts Aggies triumphed over their Connecticut rivals at Storrs on June 12th by a score of 4 to 3. Nash pitched a very creditable game. M. A. C. scored once in the second inning and three times in the third. Connecticut then monopolized scoring honors for two appearances at the plate and counted twice, but neither nine made the circuit after the sixth inning. The following day the Connecticut Aggies reciprocated for our kindness in defeating them at home by trimming the M. A. C. team, 8 to 0, in a commence- ment season game on Alumni Field. Only three of the visitors ' runs were earned. Costly lapses by the battery were responsible for several scores. As a whole, with the exception of a short period in mid-season, the stickwork of the team was rather weak, gaining for them the appellation of " the hitless 148 wonders " . The infield was inclined to err a little too frequently, but the outfield was steady, and it was not until near the close of the schedule that large scores were amassed against the Agates. In Taylor and Nash, Aggie had two effective hurlers, and although McGeoch, their battery mate, had had little previous ex- perience, he played an aggressive game. The no hit no run game pitched by Taylor, and the fourteen inning tie against Norwich in which Nash and Taylor both worked, were the two most un- usual occurrences of the season.

This necessitated the training of a team made up almost entirely of new and unexperienced men. The season cannot be considered a failure in spite of the fact that the team won only one of the three meets scheduled because it helped to prepare some of the undergraduates for the coming season. The season started with a triangular relay with U. of N. H. and U. of Me., at the B. A. i . games in Boston in which M. A. C. finished last, the U. of M. finishing first. The Maine runners outclassed the M. A. C. team but the latter might have worried the N. H. quartet had not one of our runners slipped at the start thereby losing 10 yards which he was unable to make up. The M. A. C. runners went down to defeat in their second meet by losing a dual meet at the K. of C. meet in Boston to the B. U. quartet. Smarting under two defeats the M. A. C. team ended their winter track season by winning from W. P. I. in Worcester 38-30. Sniffen was high scorer of the meet, taking two firsts — in the 30-yard and in the quarter mile. His quarter mile was the best race of the meet. He started well and held his own pace for over three laps regardless of the position of his opponents. Then he opened up a sprint which carried him past Thompson, Worcester ' s star dash man in spite of the latter ' s futile burst of speed and finished many yards ahea d. 1925 liinter tKracfe anb 3 clap Reason Triangular Relay U. of N.

The team won three out of four dual meets, placed third in the Eastern Intercollegiate Meet at Springfield and scored three points in the New England Intercollegiate Meet at Boston, the same number of points that was scored last year and which is the highest number which any M. A. C. team has scored in this competition. The initial track meet of the season resulted in a decisive win for M. A.C. over Norwich 69-47. The runners were handicapped by a strong wind, but in the field events a better showing was made. Thurlow won the discus throw by throw- ing the discus 114.2 feet, over 17 feet further than his nearest Norwich rival. Sniffen was high scorer in the meet, capturing first place in three events: the 100 and 2 ' 20-yard dashes and broad jump. In the second dual meet M. A. C. won from Tufts in one of the closest and most hotly contested meets ever entered. The final score was 64-62, but the result was in doubt up to the last minute. White, who would have been a point winner in the broad jump and pole vault was unable to compete because of injuries. Sniffen proved his versatility by taking three firsts and one second. In the 100- yard dash he equalled the college record of 10 1 5 seconds and in the 220 he broke the record by running it in 22 2 5 seconds. At the Eastern Intercollegiate Meet at Springfield the team scored a total of 25 points and landed third place. It lost second place to Northwestern who scored 30 points. On May 16 the M. A. C. team won its third dual meet of the season by defeat- ing W. P. I. 64-62, a struggle which saw two of the M. A. C. records fall. Tucker broke the pole vault record of 10 ft., 6 in., made by Burton Googins ' 16 by clearing the bar at 10 ft., 7 in. In the broad jump Thompson broke the record made by Sniffen the year before at the New England Intercollegiate Meet by making a jump of 21 ft., 9 in. In the New England Intercollegiate Meet at Boston Snift ' en repeated his record of the year before by being the only M. A. C. man to score. He placed second in the broad jump, one place better than last year. His best leap of 22 ft., 6 in., broke the college record of 21 ft., 9)4 in., which was established the previous week at Worcester by Thompson. In the last meet M. A. C. went down to defeat at the hands of the University of New Hampshire 90-36. The University of New Hampshire was the strongest opponent the M. A. C. team faced, the team having scored 11 points in the Intercollegiates. 153 ■aai g Uwi ' ftW.iU g Bl J ecorbs; Ptofecn Buring 1925 Reason 220-Yard Dash — 22 2 5 seconds by Sniffen ' 26 Broad Jump — 22 ft., 6 inches by Sniffen ' 26 Discus Throw — 118 ft. d} ' 2 inches by Thurlow ' 26 Pole Vault— 10 ft., 7 inches by Tucker ' 26 High Jump — 5 ft., 8 inches by Tucker ' 26 1925 Spring tKracfe Reason Norwich April 2.5 At M.

The harriers lost only one dual meet out of a total of six. Wesleyan won the honors of being the only team to defeat M. A. C. this fall. The first meet against Rhode Island State at Kingston, Rhode Island, re- sulted in a victory for M. A. C, the score being 27-29. This is the first time in five years that the Rhode Island State harriers have su.stained a defeat on their home course. The next meet resulted in a decisive victory over Williams with a score of 21- ■36, nearly an exact reversal of the score at Williamstown two years ago when Williams won 19-37. Crofts, who finished eighth in the New England Intercolle- giate Meet at Boston last fall, was the first to cross the line, but he was closely pressed throughout the race by Nottebart. Wesleyan came next and handed M. A. C. its only defeat of the season at Middletown by an over-whelming score 15-43. Wesleyan, later in the fall, was tied by Williams in a triple meet in which Amherst was the third entrant. Both Amherst and Williams were decisively conquered by the M. A. C. harriers in dual meets. The following meet resulted in an over-whelming victory for M. A. C. over W. P. I. by a score of 15-50. In this meet W. P. I. was completely outraced from start to finish. The entire M. A. C. squad, finished seven abreast and thus ran up the lowest score of the season. The victory over W. P. I. seemed to stimulate the team and the following week the squad defeated Amherst in the last home meet of the season by a score of 23-38. In the final meet of the season the M. A. C. harriers annexed another victory to their record by defeating Boston University with a score of 25-32 over the Franklin Park course in Jamaica Plain. Following the B. U. meet the team went to Boston to take part in the New England Intercollegiate meet. In this meet the team finished seventh, the best showing since 1919. The outstanding feature of the record made this season was team work dis- played. Only once did an M. A. C. man come in for a first place and in this case the entire squad finished seven abreast to conquer AV. P. I. This season ' s team is by far the best team that M. A. C. has produced in many years. 156 E )t Jf ootball Ceam Laurence L. Jones " 2(5 Francis AV. Warren ' 26 Harold M. Gore ' 13 Captain Manager Coach Center — Philip Couhig ' 26 Right Guard — G.

' 2.i FOOTBALL SEASON will vie with the preceding year for honors in the history of the pigskin at Aggie, for " the little red machine " of 1925, forced to " travel on the rims at times, " brought home victories in six out of eight contests, bringing the total number of games won in the last two years to twelve in comparison with three losses and one tie. The Agates had an exceptionally strong running attack which would not be denied, its tackle-to-tackle offensive working to perfection. The real strength of this assault is best revealed by statistics which show that Aggie outrushed every single one of her opponents in 192.5, amassing a total of 133 first downs to 43 by her opponents, an average of 16 to 5 for each game. The team, directed by one of the best quarterbacks Aggie has seen in recent years, displayed teamwork and cooperation of the highest order. The work of the line was unexcelled, but the backfield was considerably retarded in their defensive work by knee injuries which were particularly troublesome during the past season. In nearly every case, the opponents scored as a result of a long run in which a speedy opponent eluded the Aggie backfield. Assisting Coach Gore in this year ' s work were several M.A.C. Alumni. George Cotton ' 22 of Woburn, captain of the 1921 " White Rats " , the last team to defeat Tufts until this year, had charge of the line. Prof. Curry S. Hicks coached the ends, while " Pop " Clark ' 83 returned again to drill C team. In pre- season workouts many interested Alumni helped develop the squad, among whom were " Red " Ball ' 21, " Ed " Tumey ' 23, " Eddie " Bike ' 24, " Charlie " McGeoch ' 15, " Sol " Gordon ' 25, George Shumway ' 25, and " Joe " Cormier ' 26. Although the squad which the coaches first viewed was the smallest to report since the war, quality rather than quantity seemed to be in evidence. The former characteristic was well demonstrated in the first game at Lewiston, Maine, on October 3rd, for Bates was literally submerged by a 19 to score. The rain was pouring and the mud was ankle deep, but the visitors sailed through the Bates team at will. During the first half, the Bates team had the ball in its possession just twice, and they chose to kick on the first play on each occasion. At no time during the entire game did Bates succeed in rushing the ball within sixty yards of the Aggie goal. Norwich was the next victim of the Agates by a score of 19 to on the fol- lowing Saturday in a game played on Alumni Field. This encounter was dis- 158 tinguished for a powerful M.A.C. offense and an equally strong wind which ren- dered playing difficult and chilled the spectators to the bone. Moberg and Sullivan made several long gains and " Sully " scored early in the first half. Shortly afterward a forward pass from Moberg to Hilyard advanced the ball 22 yards to the Soldiers " 10-yard stripe from where " Buddy " Moberg went through the line for the second count. A new Aggie luminary appeared in the third quarter when " Eddie " Haertl emerged from the Norwich line, dodged the secondary defense, and dashed 20 yards for a touchdown. For the third time the M.A.C. goal line remained uncrossed by virtue of a 13 to victory over Conn. Aggie at Storrs before a record-breaking Alumni- Day crowd on October 17th. Coach " Dolly " Dole, a former team-mate of " Kid " Gore ' s, boasted an eleven-letter-men team which had been the only eleven to triumph over the Agates in 192-1.. Their sterling defense was equaled by that of their visitors ' , however, who, moreover, flashed an irrestible attack in the second period which netted two touchdowns. The second half saw the Connec- ticut defense tighten, but they never came nearer the M.A.C. goal line than the -10-yard mark and were able to make only one first down. Worcester Tech, although badly defeated in the next contest on Alumni Field, gained the distinction of being the first team to score on Aggie during the season by tallying 19 points against 64 by the Agates. Sullivan, with three touchdowns to his credit, and Moberg, with four, featured the day for Aggie, but " Dick " Converse, All-New-England backfield star, and " Joe " Guidi of W.P.I, provided breath-taking excitement for the spectators. The former dashed 90 yards down the sidelines after receiving a punt on his own ten-yard stripe, while the latter broke loose and ran seventy-five yards for another score. A different type of offensive was staged by M.A.C. in this game, a battering of the ends which proved remarkably effective with excellent interference. The courageous Agates failed to break the Pratt Field jinx on October 31st and were vanquished by the best team that Amherst has had in twenty years. The final score was 27 to 0, but it does not indicate the relative merits of the two elevens. M.A.C. made three more first downs than Amherst, but could not show the needed punch at the right time. At the close of the first half Aggie had ad- vanced the ball to Amherst ' s 2-yard line, but the Jeffmen held three times and then intercepted a pass on the fourth down. The speed of the Amherst back- field was the only point of superiority over the Agates who had a line fully the equal of the Purple and White ' s and who had a perfected offense capable of gain- ing 64 yards in an unbroken march. Captain-elect " Joe " Hilyard distinguished himself in his support of the line by his hard, sure tackling and his alertness in intercepting forwards. On November 14th the Agates returned to the winning column at the expense of Lowell Textile, which was forced to accept the short end of a 41 to 6 159 score on Alumni Field. " Eddie " Haertl provided several spectacular gains for M.A.C., a 70-yard sally being his most notable achievement. The most exciting and probably the best-played game on Alumni Field during the 192.5 season came on the following Saturday when Tufts was con- (juered by a score of 6 to 4, the first time that the eleven from Medford has bowed to Aggie since 1921. The series between the two rivals (started in 1886) is now even, each college having won ten games while three have been ties. Tufts only scores came as a result of safeties, the first after a blocked punt in the second quarter, and the second, an intentional safety in the final period. In the latter case, Aggie had held the Jumbos on the three-yard line and gained possession of the ball. From the unfavorable position of the team, a kick would have been likely to have been blocked by the cross-bar, so the Agates took the safety, thus receiving the oval on the 30-yard stripe from whence Moberg kicked out of danger. The M.A.C. eleven, featuring straight football, made several long marches giving them a chance to score, but on only one occasion, in the third quarter after five successive first downs, was a tally forthcoming. Those loyal rooters who were among the holiday throng at Pratt Field in Springfield on Thanksgiving morning witnessed a thrilling exibition of football between two well-drilled, well-conditioned teams. The Agates were leading, 13 to 12, well into the final quarter when Springfield, growing desperate as the end of the struggle approached, attempted a " shoestring " play which proved suc- cessful. This play, proved to be M.A.C ' s undoing. Springfield ' s other touch- downs had followed long runs by " Bob " Berry, but the Home City boys were able to make but 8 first downs against the 14 rolled up by the Maroon and White. The polished tackle-to-tackle offensive of the Agates was the cause of both their scores, the second tally coming after a 63-yard drive which included six successive first downs. " Buddy " Moberg ' s punting was even better than usual in his final football game for Aggie. The line-plunging ability of the Agates has led the press to speak of them frequently as " the husky farmers " , but a glance at the weights of the backfield letter-men: 154, 154, 151, 146, and 144 pounds respectively show no excess weight. This is characteristic of the team as a whole. In fact, Worcester Tech was the only team played in 1925 which did not outweigh the Agates or at least equal them in weight. Another prevalent opinion is the belief that football players here at M.A.C, as well as elsewhere, are poor students. As a matter of fact, the three-year averages of the ten senior members of the squad range from 70.4 to 86.8 with a composite average of 79.4, which is considerably higher than the general average for all students in the college. Statistics show that Capt " Larry " Jones has played every minute in at least sixteen consecutive games, never having missed a play during his last two years 160 as varsity end. In addition he was chosen again as an All-New-England end, while " Hal " Thurlow, our " Tiny " guard, was awarded a position on the same mythical combination. The Class of 1926 will take away one of the strongest groups of football men representing a single class at M.A.C. " Larry " Jones, " Al " Gustafson, " Red " Sullivan, " Buddy " Moberg, and " Fat " Gavin have all won the coveted " M " three times. " Phil " Couhig, the Agates ' scrappy little center, and " Hal " Thur- low are letter men of two years ' standing, while " Chet " Nichols, " Dick " Fes- senden, " Johnnie " Tulenko, Myron Smith, " Fat " Baker and " Ham " Richardson have each one letter to his credit. A nucleus of only four letter-men remains for the 1926 eleven. Captain-elect " Joe " Hilyard ' 27, " Gerry " Amstein ' 27, " Eddie " Haertr27, and " Al " Cook ' 28. Upon these men will rest part of the responsibility of attempting to equal the record set by " the little red machine " of 1925.

Lane 162 easion 1926 I HREE veterans from the 19 ' -25 hockey team reported for practice on New - - Year ' s Day, Captain " Buddy " Moberg, Royal W. Potter, and Cary D. Palmer. " Red " Ball ' 21 was again given the coaching assignment, and the season ' s record gives adequate testimony to his ability, when the condition of the weather and the lack of capable substitute material are taken into consideration. The lack of suitable ice caused the cancellation of four games out of the original schedule of twelve, and although a larger number of candidates than usual tried out for the team, many of them were ine.xperienced. Three sophomores, Howard J. Abrahamson, Joseph H. Forest, and Paul F. Frese were selected to complete the team which played the major portion of nearly every contest. Frederick W. Swan saw the most service among the substitutes. The season opened rather inauspiciously on January 9th with a loss to M. I. T. at Amherst by a score of 3 to 0. The visiting se.xtet showed the effects of its practice in the Boston Arena, while the Agates, who had been handicapped by warm weather and poor ice, were unable to bring much teamwork into play. The next contest, which was held at Clinton, New York, on the following Friday, resulted in a defeat for Aggie. Hamilton emerged on the long end of a 5 to 2 score, but only after a strenuous battle which was decided in the final minutes of play. The count was tied at 1 all at the opening of the final period, but Van Vleet, the Hamilton captain, tallied, and fresh substitutes were sent in against the tiring Agates, who were unable to withstand the reinvigorated assault. " Joe " Forest scored the two Aggie goals. The M. A. C. sextet won its first game the next day, however, by outplaying R. P. I. at Troy. The score was 2 to 1, and Captain " Buddy " Moberg featured the struggle, shooting both the Aggie goals in the final session to gain the victory. Although the work of the team was not so good as that displayed in the Hamilton game, nevertheless, the Agates justly deserved to win. Following this encounter came an enforced vacation of more than a week owing to the mild weather which prevailed. During this period three impor tant games were canceled, games with Dartmouth, New Hampshire, and Bates, all three of which would have been playeil away from home. Cold weather returned just in time to give the Agates a single day ' s practice before meeting Amherst in the only clash of the season between the two rivals. The teams met on Pratt Rink on January 26th, but a scoreless tie was the outcome, the game being called because of the glare of arc lights on the ice. The town championship therefore remained undecided, for a second game between the two colleges, scheduled for February 18th, was never played on the account of the lack of ice. 163 One of the most exciting struggles took place on Mid- Winter-Alumni-Day when Middlebury was declared the victor after two overtime periods. Play was extremely fast, and the Agates outplayed their opponents throughout the game, yet they could not lodge the puck in the Middlebury cage, largely because of the exceptional guarding of the visiting goalie. " Joe " Forest scored the only M. A. C. goal in the third period to match the single point which Whittemore had made in the opening session. No further score was forthcoming until the second over- time period when Whittemore tallied again. The Army bowed to the Agates in the next game played on February 10th at West Point in a snowstorm. The ice was in excellent condition, however, and an aggressive, speedy contest ensued, which was marked by the good passing and .sterling defense of the M. A. C. pucksters. The Army made its lone tally in the initial period, but " Red " Potter tied the score at the beginning of the second. With four minutes to play. Captain " Buddy " Moberg took a pass from Forest and turned the puck into the net for the deciding margin. New Hampshire was the second victim of the Maroon and White sextet within a week, losing by a score of 1 to 3 to the Agates on February 13th. This game, originally scheduled in Amherst as the second of a home-and-home series, was staged at Durham on New Hampshire ' s new rink as one of the attractions at their winter carnival. New Hampshire continued the record set by all the other opponents of the Aggie team by scoring first, but Forest, Moberg, and Frese tallied successively in each period to decide the contest for M. A. C. Williams shut out the Agates with a vengeance in the final encounter of the winter, the final score reading 7 to 0, but the M. A. C. sextet played hard the superior Purple aggregation and kept them from tallying in the last period. This was the largest number of points amassed against Aggie during the 19 ' -26 season, a much better record than that of the previous year. It is almost impossible to give special mention to any one member of the team, so well balanced was the sextet, but the skating and stickwork of Captain Herbert E. Moberg stood out in nearly every encounter. His scoring record was equalled by " Joe " Forest, who was also particularly aggressive at all times. The excellent work of Aggie ' s reliable goalie, " Dinty " Palmer, also deserves recog- nition. Potter, Moberg, and Palmer will all be lost to the team next year, but a promising nucleus of four men, Forest, Abrahamson, Frese, and Swan remains. 1926 easion January 9 January 15 January 16 January 20 January aa January 23 January 26 February 6 February 10 February 13 February 16 February 18 M.A.C.

Both of the defeats this season were lost by a few points, Springfield College winning with a two point nargin and Conn. Aggie with a four point lead. Many of the best teams in New England fell before the Aggie power- ful offense among which are Brown, one of the three teams to defeat the 1925 quintet. New Hamphire, Williams, Wesleyan, Middlebury, Vermont and Maine. The team averaged 27 points per game against 19 for its opponents or a grand total of 378 points. This is exceedingly good considering the opponents and the fact that six of the fourteen games were played within a period of two weeks. Unquestionably the greatest victories of the season were those scored over Williams, Wesleyan, and Middlebury. These three games were played within the short period of four days. In the Williams game the Aggie quintet played against great odds in that the game was played at Williamstown under a much stricter referee than usual and on a much smaller court. The Wesleyan game was an exhibition of speed and accurate shooting as far as the home team was con- cerned. A 12 to score was run up before Wesleyan came to and scored her first point. By the victory over Middlebury the quintet equalled the record of nine successive wins made by the Aggie All- Valley five in 1 922. It was " Larry " Jones ' one-handed shot in the last five seconds of play which broke the 14 to 14 tie and won the game. The success of the team as a whole is attributed to the phenomenal team work of everyone who wore the Maroon and White and not on indicidual stars. The season opened with four veterans in the line-up, Captain Temple, Jones, Par- tenheimer, and Smiley. In the first few games the line-up was constantly being changed until " Ray " Grifiin was finally picked to take the place left vacant by Samuels, captain of the 1925 quintet. It is of interest to note that four of these five men won places or honorable mention on the 1925 All-New England quintet. Captain Temple, who was leading scorer throughout the season, was at his best in the closing game with Tufts. In this contest he showed a great exhibition of basketball in accounting for nineteen points, shooting seven out of eight fouls and six baskets from the floor. Smiley in spite of his handicap in height ex- cellently filled his position as guard because of his speed. Partenheimer by his accurate shooting and Jones with his ability to jump center both lived up to their last year ' s reputation. Grifiin filled to perfection the position of the missing 166 link in the quintet because of his speed and shooting. Thomas who shifted with Griffin in practically every game will be one of the foundations for the 1927 team. 1926 £f)ebulc January 7 Norwich January 9 Worcester Polytechnic Institute January 15 Brown January 23 Clark January 29 New Hampshire February 6 Holy Cross February 10 Williams February 12 AVesleyan February 13 Middlebury February 17 Springfield February 20 Vermont February 22 Conn.

With Roy Norcross, — who has now had two years of experience — leading the glee club, the club has exhibited a brand of music not heretofore thought obtainable. A material aid to the concerts was found in the person of " Dutch " Ansell, the " boy with the sputtery feet " . As a trick step dancer, Ansell has given us a kind of dancing that is of the quality customarily found in professional circles only. The Orchestra this year has produced a really good quality of dance music and has certainly won popularity with its audiences through sheer merit. Of the club itself, little need be said. Every concert given has been success- ful. A comparatively small number of Freshmen were admitted to the club this year; however, what they lacked in quantity they certainly made up for in quality. With so few new men entering the club, and so large a number of seniors leaving, it will devolve upon the class of ' 29 to fill the depleted ranks. Once again the club has been favored with the coaching of Prof. Ivan T. Gorockhoff of Smith College. Prof. Gorockhoff is highly popular with the men. His energetic leading of the " Cossack Lament " is an incident to be remembered by the choristers. 173 John Lambert ' " 26 lee Clutj Leader, Roy Norcross ' 26 Pianist, James Bower ' 26 First Tenors Emery S.

The Glee Club is the culmination of several years ' attempts to establish such an organization among the Co-eds. For several years there has been a Music Club, and under its auspices the present glee club was formed. From the first, the club has been successful since they were fortunate enough to obtain the services of Mrs. Arthur B. Beaumont as coach. Mrs. Beaumont is indeed an accomplished directress and has moulded the club into excellent shape through her constant, diligent efforts. There has been an average attendance of twenty-four girls in each concert, with more freshmen represented than any other class. The first concert work was done on the program for High School Day together with the combined Musical Clubs. The work was evidently successful for the club was given academic recognition for 1925-6. The club also furnished enter- tainment at a conference of the Girls ' Clubs of the district which was held on campus during spring term. In spite of its late start the Glee Club may be con- sidered successful. The Glee Club has been able to furnish a varied program for concerts during the present year. There has been a successful attempt to raise the standard of the music used by the Glee Club so the concerts represent a popular choice of songs which are not too commonly used. Variety has been given the program since " Kid " Cassidy and " Peg " Shea sing the songs for which they are famous and render their interpretation of the " Duncan Sisters " . Janet Jones ' 29 adds to the program with her special dancing features. A soloist and several trios add to the variety of the concert. Ruth Davison, the manager and organizer, and Evelyn Davis, the leader, have carried on their work in an excellent manner. 177 Cf)irtp= etonb Jf lint Oratorical Content Bonker Auditorium, Friday, June 12, 1925 Presiding Officer, Professor Walter E.

Haskins 179 ©etjatins TN spite of the scarcity of candidates the team has enjoyed one of the most - - successful seasons in the history of debating in this college. The team began its season by a 2 to 1 victory over Maine. After Maine came Colby and again our team triumphed with a 3 to decision. It was after this Colby victory that the real contest of the year occurred, the debate with the team from Bates College. Two of the men on this team were members of the internationally-known team which, in 1925, crossed the water to meet the best teams of Oxford and Cambridge. Without a doubt the smoothness and ease of the experienced Bates men gave them the edge and a 3 to decision. It is unfortunate that debating is not given better support by the student body than it is at the present time. Debating contests are very poorly attended. This alone would be enough to discourage a good many college debating teams and result in the dropping of the activity. With the debating team which we have here it is difficult to really understand the apathy towards the forensic art. It is not fitting that this article should close without some reference to Pro- fessor Prince, the coach of the team. Of his time, experience, and kindly advice, he has given unstintingly. He has nursed the activity through its most adverse periods and has worked unceasingly to cultivate, in the men under his training, a spirit of keen analysis and quick, clear thinking that will be of inestimable aid to them in later life.

Aggie Revue was certainly a novelty, taking the form of a light musi- cal comedy, " Doris " , both the plot and lyrics of which were composed by stu- dents; both seniors, incidentally. The number, " Doris " was a decided hit. The Commencement Show of June, 1925, was " Sidney, " by Prof. Frank P. Rand of the faculty. The interpretation of Queen Elizabeth by Emil Corwin ' 25 and the acting of Miss Margaret Shea, ' 26 were particularly good, altho the entire cast acquitted themselves in a truly professional manner. A new experiment, already tried in professional circles, is being attempted for Prom Show this year. " She Stoops to Conquer " will be presented in modern dress. Rehearsals are already under way and give promise of a successful pre- sentation of Goldsmith ' s classic in its modern attire. Increased interest is being manifested in the dramatic society this year if P rom show try outs are an indication. Much of the success of the past year has been due to the efficient coaching of Prof. Rand and the fine example of dramatic efforts set by President T. J. Grant ' 26 and the other members of the society. The Roister Doisters have witnessed several interesting performances of the Repertory Company in Northampton this year. 183 fje Jubging eamg Jfruit f ubging Ceam Lewis M. Van Alstyne Roy E.

In 1914 it became affiliated with the National Y.M.C.A. The name was changed in 1922 to the M.A.C. Christian Association. It still operates in connection with the National Y.M.C.A. but has withdrawn its voting power in order that it might expand its purpose and reach more students on the campus. The officers of the association are elected each spring by the student body and serve for three terms. The object of the association is to promote the growth of the Christian spirit on the campus and thus help every student to come to know what it means to be a Christian and to live up to the full measure of that knowl- edge. The association is assisted by Mr. John B. Hanna, Interchurch Student Secretary, who serves as advisor. The first duty of the M.A.C.C.A. is to welcome the freshmen, to help them get settled and acquainted with college life. It is with this object in view that the " freshman handbook " is revised and published each year. A copy of this hand- book is presented to each new student, whether freshman, upper classman or grad- uate student. It serves to make the new man more at home and gives him those facts about the college which he will find useful and which every student should know. During the past year the editorial board was headed by Elmer E. Barber as Editor-in-Chief. He has now been succeeded by Earl F. Williams who is busily engaged in preparing the handbook for 1926-1927. In addition to the handbook the association endeavours to procure various well-known religious speakers. During the past year a number of persons have been heard under the auspices of the association. Rev. A. Ray Petty of New York City gave a talk on " Immigrants " in which he vividly described the living conditions of Italian immigrants in the New York slums. Dr. Henry H. Crane spoke on " The Paradox of Power " . Other topics of religious and social interest have been discussed by autliorities in these fields. 187 • ' ■ g wf nrr H ' — - ' fje CoUesian tKfte Cbitotial department Mary T. Boyd " G John F.

The members of the Collegian Editorial Board feel justified, however, in publishing articles which will arouse discussion among the students for the good which comes from a discussion of any debatable subject, as well as printing the more routine campus news. If you think the Collegian isn ' t appreciated, just try and secure a copy at any fraternity house on Wednesday afternoon. The Collegian has been established under its present name for about eleven years, but its history as a college newspaper covers a period of thirty-five years. The first Aggie newspaper was established in 1890 and was entitled " College Life " , although it was not as humorous as its name might suggest. " College Life " appeared every two weeks, as did its successor, the " College Signal " , which reorganized the original paper in the fall of 1901. The " College Signal " was published from that time until the fall of 1914 when the present weekly " Col- legian " came into being. For the first time in the annals of M.A.C., a Co-Ed has directed the publi- cation of the campus newspaper. Mary T. Boyd ' 26 of Ortega, Florida, well known for her unique " Cider Press " , has been Editor-in-Chief for the past two terms. She was elected to s erve as a successor to Arthur V. Buckley ' 26 of Natick, who headed the board during the spring term of 1925, but who failed to return to college in September. She had previously held the position of Managing Editor for a term. To John F. Lambert ' 26 of Gleasondale goes all due credit for the artistic arrangement of the front page and the catchy headlines, for he has been the Managing Editor. Alvin G. Stevens ' 26 of Needham, the Business Manager, has supervised his department and has been responsible for the successful financial conduct of the paper. His first assistant has been Charles P. Reed ' 26 of West Bridgewater, who has had charge of advertising. The work of producing a creditable paper involves more detail than the average student appreciates. Although the printer reads all the proof under the present system, there remains a major portion of work for members of the board. First, the reporters must scout around and pick up stray bits of news; the editor- in-chief must compose his editorials; the cider-presser must grind his grist. All contributions must be typewritten before they are handed in to the managing editor at the weekly meetings on Monday night. He then proceeds to make corrections, to compound headlines, and to make a tentative " dummy " for the printer ' s guidance. In the meantime the business department has been busy scouring about for advertisers, and when the printed papers arrive on Wednesday afternoon, the same department must distribute them on the campus and send out large numbers through the mail. This work is not seasonal. It comes every week of the year, and it must all be done if the Collegian is to appear. The Massachusetts Collegian is under the supervision of the Academic Activities Board and receives general oversight by that body. 189 Edward A. Connell Kenneth W. Milligan Herbert J.

We feel that too much information of a highly statistical nature has been given in too systematized a manner. While we have retained all the information which is necessary and appropriate for our yearbook, we have inter- spersed this information with articles of a literary nature, but which, in them- selves, are of real value and interest to the student body. Such articles are those on " The Stockbridge House " , and " College Customs " . Unusual co-operation has been shown in the work of the board this year. Odd though it may seem, we can honestly say that the task of publishing this book has been one which, although entailing a deal of hard work and a few " sleep- less nights " has certainly not been devoid of pleasure and interest. The enjoy- ment we have derived from working together has been great enough to warrant the dismissal of the routine phase of the work as negligible.

Peirce 191 :50 o o BETWEEN Wilder Hall and Clark Hall, half hidden by the elms, pines, and masses of grape vine, is a little old farmhouse known to Aggie graduates as " The Old Stockbridge House " because President Stockbridge lived there during his administration and kept his office in the small room over the woodshed. There are few people who appreciate what a gem this old house is, for in its present ramshackle condition it catches the eye of only those who are versed in the charm and beauty of the old New England homestead. The symmetry and simplicity of the lines of the house, the tiny window panes, and the sunken door- way, mark it as one of the old homes, which, like old people, should be cherished. In this Connecticut Valley, rich with the history of the early struggles of this country, such a home fills the imagination with pictures of staunch settlers living their rigorous life, of Indian wars and massacres, of hard winters taking their toll of life, and of all the odds which the first settlers fought with such courage that we are proud to call them our ancestors. The house is built in the old colonial manner with the first floor covering more area than the second so that the sloping walls brace the house. Like other old homes in this part of the country, its principle beams and window sills are hand hewn, what nails that are in the house are hand made and the latches and hinges are beautifully wrought. The hair-plaster and four foot paneling on the walls and the old corner-closets fill the heart of the antiquarian with delight. The ancient chimney, now removed, covered an area of 196 square feet and contained three fireplaces and a smoke-oven. On the inside of the windows are the old wooden shutters which could be closed to keep out molesters or Indians. The wells under the house gave clear cold spring water. On rainy days children in the house played hide-and-seek in the dark attic, which they invested with ghosts, and in the secret closet in the wall of the living room, near the chimney. It was large enough for a man to sit or lie in comfortably but there are no records of it ever being used seriou.sly as a hiding place. In the same wall were two secret drawers for the safe keeping of the family valuables. For forty years the house has been used as the home of college caretakers and now it is occupied by a workman. It is no credit to the state that she is letting such a heritage fall to ruin for lack of proper care and appreciation. There seems to be a " need of being versed in country things. " 193 Social Hife at M . C. OOCIAL LIFE AT M. A. C. is of an exceptionally high order. Excellent facili- ties for dances are found in practically all fraternity houses and the Memo- rial Building, of course, is certainly ideal for social affairs. The Junior class has been very successful in its social activities. Soph- Senior Hop of June, 1925, was very well attended. Music was furnished by the famous Morey Pearl Brunswick Recording artists and the Harrisonia Manor broadcasting team from Nashua, N. H. Prom in April, 1926, was also well attended. The 1927 Prom committee made a radical departure from custom in doing away with the usual drab cabaret and changing Prom dance from Thursday to Friday night of Prom season. Worthy Hills Orchestra of Hartford furnished the music. The Delta Phi Gamma Prom, the first this sorority has attempted, came in J ' ebruary. Starting with a formal dance at the Memorial Building Friday night, a successful tea dance was held at the Amherst Women ' s Club, Saturday after- noon, a sleigh ride to Hadley came Sunday night and Monday night the girls were entertained by their men at a dancing party at the Sig Ep house. Informal dances, conducted by a student committee, are held two or three times each term and Friday night dances are given frequently. 194 - " " - T P Mf rhHH ' - ' ■ - informal Committee Francis J.

TyTE had quite a time this year trying to get our class characters definitely ' straightened out, but after numerous voteoffs, etc., we eventually selected the fortunate, or unfortunate, people. Our most popular junior is none other than long, lean, Ernest G. McVey, and he certainly deserves it. Whether rapidly (that ' s the wrong word!) making change in the bowling-alley, or stopping rapid grass-cutters on the diamond, Mac never loses his temper. His support in class activities has been remarkable. And we might here mention that Mac was also voted the class Cigarette Fiend. The speed with which he consumes the filthy weed is marvellous! And our soldier! Raphael A. Biron, of Amesbury, or " Tick " if you don ' t recognize this name. " Tick " caught Captain Brady ' s eye during the automatic rifle dissembling orgy our sophomore year and since then " It ' s been easy " as " Tick " puts it. Ella M. Buckler of Pittsfield is our Most Popular Co-Ed. We all know Ella ' s genial disposition and her sincerity. Our class secretary par excellence certainly deserved her honors. And speaking of honors, maybe our Class Actor, Neil C. Robinson isn ' t entitled to his share! The star of several Aggie Revues and Prom Shows, this scion of Booth and Irving is " much at home " on the boards. And " Robby " is an athlete of no mean stamp, incidentally, which is a convenient way of bringing up the name of our class Athlete, Joe Hilyard of Beverly. " Joe " is captain of the 1926 football team. Isn ' t that enough? No! He isn ' t the class dancer, but " Eddie " Connell, our Class Dancer says that he ' d swap his patent leathers any day for Joe ' s " M " . " Eddie " has danced his way through several Hops and Proms and also edited this year book to many a mel- ancholy tune in the stilly night when our Class Fusser, " Vic " Verity was out calling the silvery moon and fleeting cloudlets to witness his heart-rending proposals to some fair one. Our Class Wit (or half-wit as he himself puts it) is " Spike " Malley of Water- town, the home of arsenals and Malleys. He is the originator of " work out " " green paper " , etc., some of our favorite junior terms. And Spike maintains that if he ' d got started sooner he would have easily copped the forensic and scholastic laurels which rest lightly (?) on the head of Herman E. Pickens of Stoneham, but even " Spike " in his serious moods admits that " Hermie " deserves them. He also maintains that the title of " Class Rustic " conferred by the class upon Roger M. Cobb of Wrentham is the one most to be desired, since this is an agricultural college. However, well, we won ' t say it — let us on, as far as we are able and then stand in the dust left by the rapidly vanishing form of our junior " most likely to succeed " on his way to the pinnacles, George F. Hatch, Jr., of West Roxbury. 199 However, we won ' t stand still long for faintly in the distance we hear the trilling of ivories. It is our Class Musician, Francis R. Mullen, of Becket, tick- ling the keys, which he can without a doubt, witness: the redoubtable " Moon Mullen ' s Melodious Music Makers " . And last but not least, our most popular Professor, Ray E. Torrey, of Am- herst. We all, no doubt, remember with a great deal of pleasure, our experiences with this most sincere and gifted of scientists. We are of the opinion that time alone will show his inestimable worth and feel that we, as a class, have certainly made no mistake in selecting him as our popular professor — he, if anybody, deserves the title! inbex Cbaractersi Actor .
