It is for that distant hour that the 1928 board has prepared this Index. Today, its pages contain little more than an index to our activities as a class and to campus events of the past year; tomorrow, it may be that its meagre out- line will enable us to call up abundant memories of our four years as " Sons of Old Massachusetts. " This hope of the morrow has been the stimulus which has urged the board forward in preparing the following pages. 3n grateful appreciation of )i benign influence in teaching us to gee ttje beauties of nature, art, anb life; ant) in abmiration of Ijisbersatilitpanb integritp, toe €:te Class; of 1 928 respectfully bebicate tl)is bolume to Jfranfe rtfjur OTaugf) Jfrank . OTaugi) TT WAS during the Great War. The scene was an army hospital. From the • - office of the chief of the Reconstruction Service emerged a sergeant, a New York City teacher of stenography who had offered his professional talents to his country " for the emergency. " Astonishment was on his face. " The Captain " , he exclaimed, " is the most extraordinary man I ever met. He knows everything. He has actually been telling me something I did not know in my own specialty. " The captain was Professor Waugh, and the incident was characteristic. For Professor Waugh is probably the most versatile man on our campus: landscape gardener, author, editor, lecturer, photographer, flutist, farmer, fra- ternity officer, executive, teacher. And probably other titles should be added to this imposing array. Moreover, he is actively engaged in all of these roles at the present time. Hardly a vacation passes that Washington does not send him out into one of the great national parks with a special problem to solve. W ho ' s Who in America lists under sixteen titles the books he has written, and his contributions to magazines are innumerable. Just now he is the editor of a shelf of horti- cultural books for Orange, Judd Company. His lectures, with or without stereopticon, are among the most popular of our extension offerings. His flair for photography finds its most captivating expression in his ever growing gallery of local celebrities. He often appears upon concert programs with his beloved flute. For many years he has been associated with Professor Sears in the Bay Road Fruit Farm. He is an active national officer of the largest Greek letter fraternity. Kappa Sigma. x s head of the Horticultural Division, his gift for administration commands the admiration of the faculty. And the enrollment in his courses bespeaks his following among the students. One cannot help but share the astonishment of the sergeant at the versatility of this many-sided man. He was born in the Great West, and this he has never forgotten. From the far and fertile prairies he brought back to New England his unbounded faith and zest in living. From experimental Kansas he borrowed his independence in judgment and his sympathetic interest in all things new. It was in Kansas, too, that he found that gracious lady who was to become the mother of his six de- lightful sons and daughters. So the West is dear to his heart, and it is a pleasure to hear him chant Carl Sandburg ' s famous line: " There is a high majestic fooling in the corn. " Socially, Professor Waugh is unfailing tonic. Being interested in so many things, he naturally finds all people pleasant, too, and invariably reduces each new association to a common denominator at once. His fund of anecdotes and his ready repartee are the delight of every gathering that he attends. His wel- come to the Butterfields, after their return from China, stands out in my memory as a veritable gem of felicitous badinage. Daily the campus mailman carries 10 from Wilder Hall odds and ends, clippings and chat, directed to almost any one of the many offices en route. No teacher keeps more faithfully and enthusiasti- cally in touch with former students than does he. His influence upon our campus is permeative and benign. Always does he plead for vision, and for beauty, and for art. He lures us out into the woodland of Toby. He brings to us from afar exhibitions of painting. He has faith in us, and quickens our faith in ourselves. He sets a winsome example in the infor- malities of friendliness. Moreover, he is a Christian gentleman, and may be found in his pew, rain or shine, on every Sunday morning. He stands for the graces that bless, for the life that endures.

The student-body, in her going, had lost an inspirational teacher and friend; the faculty, a strong, efficient helper. For many weeks we had known of Miss Goessmann ' s struggle and her won- derful courage in the face of continuing ill-health. Her marvelous fortitude in facing the probability of spending years in total blindness, inspired everyone who knew her. During her temporary absence from the college, she had made so much progress in regaining her health that we were all looking forward to having her among us again, at the beginning of the college year. Miss Goessmann has been intimately associated with the college most of her life. Her father was a distinguished and valued member of the first faculty when the doors of the college opened, and served in that capacity for more than thirty years. Miss Goessman graduated from the Amherst High School, and from Sacred Heart College at Providence, Rhode Island, and later she received the degree of Master of Philosophy from Ohio State University, supplementing this training with extensive study and travel in Germany, England and France. Miss Goessmann was devoted to her chosen field of English literature. Her own rare spirit found its natural home in the works of the great minds who wrote for the ages. She knew well that literature could be taught so that it is the most powerful thing in life to help stimulate young men and women to finer thought and better living. Many of her pupils look back upon the hours in her classes with the knowledge that it was in her class room they first learned to love the beautiful and to appreciate the great in literature, and there resolved to seek it in life. Above all else. Miss Goessman believed it was people who counted most. Consequently her life was rich in friendships from every walk of life. She loved people and had a real gift for friendship. In expressing her sense of indebtedness to Miss Goessmann, a former student has written, — " She was interested in every one of her pupils and kept before them always a high vision of their own possibilities. The splendid philosophy of her life — a life spent generously and joyously in its very act — was a stimulus to new goals of achievment, of courage, of faith, of social usefulness. To have known her well was a privilege that I shall remember gratefully as long as I live. " Her life will go on as she would wish it to, working forever in the widely scattered lives which touched hers, and into which she put so much of strength and inspiration and beauty. EDNA L. SKINNER 17 Photo by Kinsman Studk PRESIDENT LEWIS bminisitration Cfjanges; A T the close of the last college year, it was announced by the Board of Trustees - ' - that Edward M. Lewis, who had served as Acting President of M. A. C. for two years, had been ofBcially appointed President of the College, with the full powers of that office. This announcement met with general and whole-hearted approval, both on the part of the undergraduate student body and the alumni, for President Lewis has, during his years of service at M. A. C, won the sincere respect and friendship of all with whom he has come in contact. Edward M. Lewis was born in Wales in 1872, and came to this country with his parents eight years afterward. He received his advanced education at AVil- liams College, where he took his A. B. degree in 1896, and his A. M. in 1899. It was there that he achieved fame as a baseball pitcher, which led him to enter professional baseball. His success was immediate, and he was soon recognized " as one of the best pitchers in the game. However, he had ambitions for a life of greater service, and in 1901, at the height of his baseball fame, he accepted a position as Instructor in Public Speaking at Columbia University. Later he accepted a similar place at Williams College, and in 1911 became Assistant Dean and Assistant Professor of English at M. A. C. Since 1914 he has been Dean of the College, and the service he has rendered in that capacity cannot be easily reckoned. His fine idealism, his broad tolerance, and his understanding of and sj ' mpathy with the problems of student life have won for him the gratitude of many and the friendship of all. It is altogether fitting that to him should be given the leadership of M. A. C, in the certainty that vmder his guidance it will continue to exemplify the highest ideals of the American college. Another act of the Trustees which has been greeted with widespread appro- bation was the appointment of Professor William L. Machmer to the position of Dean of the College, announcement of which was made at the beginning of the present college year. The year of 1911 also marked the arrival on our campus of Dean Machmer, who had just been granted his A. M. degree from Franklin and Marshall College. Previous to that time he had received an A. B. at the same institution . and had spent several years teaching in the public schools of Pennsylvania. Coming to M. A. C. as Instructor in Mathematics, he became Assistant Professor in 1913 and Associate Professor in 1919. Since 1920 he has been Professor of Mathematics and Assistant Dean, and during the past two years, he has served both as Acting Dean and Acting Registrar. No member of the faculty has the best interests of the College and the student body more at heart than Dean Machmer. By his quiet friendship, his tactful, unassuming helpfulness, and his appreciation of the everyday problems of college life, he has gained the liking and respect of the entire undergraduate body. 19 DEAN MACHMER 0iiittv of General bminis tration Edward M.

Milber, j atron of horticulture T X T ILDER HALL, which is, as the building devoted to Landscape Gardening " ' should be, one of the most attractive buildings on the Campus, was named for Marshall Pinckney Wilder, whose fame in agricultural circles was nation-wide, and who was closely connected with the College during its early years. Col. Wilder, as he was known during the greater part of his life, was born in Rindge, New Hampshire, on September 22, 1798. It would seem that the attrac- tions of the schoolroom never appealed to him very strongly, for when, at the age of sixteen, he was allowed to choose between going to college and entering his father ' s store, he elected the latter. This event marked the beginning of a long and successful business career; but in spite of his success in the business world. Col. Wilder found the study of agriculture and horticulture more to his liking, and much of his life was occupied with work in connection with these fields. He was closely associated with the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, and served as president for eight years; he was one of the founders of the United States Agricultural Society, and its first president; as one of the most prominent pomologists of the country, he helped to organize the American Pomological Society, and was its president for twenty years. These are only a few of his activities, but in spite of all, he still found time to work in behalf of better education: he had a large part in the establishment of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as well as in founding our own College, of which he was the first trustee appointed, and which he served, in the capacity of President of the Board of Trustees, for twenty-one years, until his death, on December 16, 1887. The building which bears the name of this famous man was constructed in 1905. Previous to that time the General Court of Massachusetts had appro- priated the sum of $39,500 " to build, furnish, and equip " a building for the use of the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Gardening. The architect was Mr. R. B. Wilcox, a well known designer of public buildings, and the construc- tion work was done by Blodgett and Bosworth of Amherst. Wilder Hall stands as a tribute to the ability both of the architect who drew the plans and the builders who carried them out. Built of red brick, trimmed with terra cotta, with a roof of colored tile; not a large building, nor with elaborate ornament; Wilder Hall yet possesses a certain distinction of appearance which makes it generally conceded to be the most beau- tiful building of its kind which belongs to the College. Seen across the Campus with its image reflected from the quiet waters of the pond, above a gentle slope of fairest green with the afternoon sunlight fla.shing upon the tiled roof. Wilder Hall appears a fitting memorial to the life and work of the truly great man whose name it bears. 37 (grabuate tubentsi Archibald, John G. Arrington, Luther B. Barber, Elmer E.

Amstein Lawrence E. Briggs Senior €ia ftisitorp T)UT a short time ago, it seems, we began the greatest adventure of our lives. - ' -- ' Partly, perhaps, out of mere conventionality, but certainly largely because of our faith in education, we had come to college. Wide-eyed with anticipation, we found in our common predicament a mutual sympathy, and we united forces, that the Class of IQil might rightly assert itself in the traditional rivalry of the classes. Interesting adventures we had, those first two years, compiling the note- books of freshman Agriculture, marvelling at the stimulating concepts masquerad- ing as Botany, puzzling over the complexities of Zoology and the complications of Physics; all the while reaching out for our respective places in college activities. Time passed on, and we proceeded with our individual adventures, to carry out the purposes which had brought us to the campus. We became absorbed in our majors. Many of us found opportunities to defend the titles of the college in athletics and in academic activities. Perhaps, too, some of us had more per- sonal demands upon our time, and why not? It has all been adventure, none the less real because shared only by small, segregated groups. Soon, it sometimes seems too soon, it will all be at an end. We find ourselves again in a common predicament; together we are to finish the adventures which together we began. Has it all b een in vain.? The future, alone, must answer. May we unani- mously pledge in parting, that in the years to come, M. A. C. may claim us with the same pride with which we hailed our Alma Mater. HERMAN E.

Albert C. Cook Warren J. Tufts Junior Classg ftisitorp ' ' TpHE history of the class of 19 ' ' 28 — this being a record of those things of most - - importance to its members. After the annual receptions which were anticipated and enjoyed with the usual eagerness, we began in earnest to master those maths and chemistries of freshman sighs and sixties. This task, however, was broken in upon somewhat by the interclass activities — the razoo night contests, which we won, the night- shirt parade which we did not win, the rope-pulls and banquet scrap in which, unfortunately, we did not show up to such good advantage. However, our class proved its assertiveness in other ways, for when the hot spring days came, our - men defied the Senate rules and one and all took off their coats. Pond parties (which were then still in vogue) claimed their share of culprits, too. Toward the end of the year a class banquet was held at Springfield, which was enjoyed so much that it was agreed to have another the following year. With our return to college as sophomores, the responsibility of subduing the 29 ' s fell quite heavily upon our shoulders and by various means we attempted to put the neophytes in their place. Again we participated in interclass activities. Most of the honors were about evenly divided. The banquet scrap, however, was an overwhelming victory for us, the last rush being quite unnecessary. It was in this year, too, that our class provided two varsity captains — in track and in hockey. In the spring term came the second banquet, which was held at Draper Hall and again was successful. Then came the Soph-Senior Hop, the last and best event of the season. Now it is our junior year! By this time, we are fairly well organized in our major groups, and feel that we are the College, as it were. Let us make ourselves worthy of carrjnng forth the high standards which have been handed down to us. Let us greet the future with enthusiasm! ELIZABETH A. MOREY 51 THE 1928 INDEX HOWARD JOSEPH ABRAHAMSON " ABE " AValtham, Mass. Waltham High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Class Baseball (1, 2); Class Hockey (1); Varsity Hockey (2, 3) ; Lambda Chi Alpha. " Abe " — that ' s what we call him, even if his given name is Howard Joseph! Certain persons have wondered just why " Abe " is not a member of the debating squad, for they say his powers of argumentation are unrivaled. Perhaps he used this talent to persuade " the powers that be " to reserve a berth for him on the ice. Although somewhat diminutive. " Abe " was one of the few sophomores to receive his letter in hockey. If he continues to charm the world as he has his class- mates, success awaits him. LEO LINWOOD FENTON ALLEN " LEO " Athol, Mass. Orange High School 1903; Dairying; Theta Chi. Leo is one of our most good natured men. He comes by it naturally, we believe, for few have less time off for enjoying themselves. He runs the bovine hospital down at the Hatch Experiment Station, living there like a hermit; yet he never complains. Leo can " loop " when occasion demands, be it in his flivver or on the dance floor. He is another one of the chaps who have fallen for the better-half idea, which he explains in his own words when he says that he exists in Amherst and lives in Orange. OLIVE ELIZABETH ALLEN " OLIVE " Flushing, N. Y. Flushing High School 1905; Floriculture: Delta Phi Gamma. Why Olive left the senior class of the highly cidtural atmosphere at Mt. Holyoke to become a junior in the agricultural realms of Aggie, we do not quite understand. Yet, this we do know, she has not regretted the change. She tells us that Floriculture drew her to Aggie, and we have no difiBculty in believing that in this craft her highly artistic temperament will have a natural outlet. 52 THE 1928 INDEX JACK AMATT " JACK " Northampton, Mass. Xorthampton High School 1906; Landscape Gardening; Class Baseball (1); Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Junior Prom Committee (3); Kappa Sigma. Jack made his debut in Chemistry, but being of artistic temperament, he changed his major to Landscape. Jack should take Sociology, for he is quite a fusser, keeping his fraternity brothers involved in a vain effort to keep track of his dates. Jack was elected to the Soph-Senior Hop Committee last spring and was instrumental in helping to put on that most popular event of the year. More recently, the Prom Committee also claimed him. HAROLD KING ANSELL •DUTCH " Amherst, Mass. Clifl ' side Park High School 1903; Agricultural Education; Musical Clubs (1, 2); Collegian (1, 2): Kappa Sigma. After finishing the Two- Year course, ' " Dutch " decided that higher education had an appeal which was too attractive to resist, and thus we found a new classmate in the " boy with the dancing feet " . On the Glee Club trips, " Dutch " and his dancing feet left a trail of broken hearts all over the state. With the Collegian, Clee Glub, and as a cheer leader, " Dutch " is a busy man, but even so, the Abbey and the Mountain know him quite well. Once in a while he hearkens to the call of Greater New York, and the Ford roadster piles up the miles till Monday morning chapel. ELLSAVORTH BARNARD " DUTCHY " Shelburne Falls, Mass. Arms Academy 1907; Agricultural Education; Collegian (1, 2, 3): Index (3); Class Track (1); Class Base- ball (1); Class Captain (2); Class Sergeant-at-Arms (3) ; Q. T. V. You cannot help knowing who " Dutchy " is, for his red sweater bedecked with numerals gives him away wherever he happens to be. " Dutchy " has won a warm place in the hearts of all of us by the part he is taking in varied activities, from riding horseback to conducting sub rosa enter- tainments for the frosh. The COLLEGIAN would not be complete if it did not contain at least one of his write-ups in every issue, and he is also one of the handsome editors of this year-book. Perhaps the happiest day in his life was the day he handed in his military uniform at the end of our sophomore year. 53 THE 1928 INDEX KENNETH ALDEN BARTLETT " KEN " Dorchester, Mass. Jamaica Plain High School 1907; Entomology; Roister Doisters (1, 2, 3); Class Track (1); Class Basketball (1); Lam- da Chi Alpha. " Ken " got the " bugaboo " and came all the way from the Plains of Jamaica to make himself conspicuous in an entomological way. He has made his presence on the campus very evident, frequently appearing before our admiring gaze as a " Roister Doisterian " . Our athletic foes have found their visits much more enjoyable through his earnest endeavors on the Maroon Key. Al- though not chemically inclined, " Ken " attributes his success to the " constant K " . When he isn ' t absorbed with the thoughts of this " perplexing non- variable " , he will give you any appetizing articles of diet a la Aggie Inn. LORA MARGARET BATCHELDER " MARG " Easthampton, Mass. Easthampton High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Girls " Glee Club (2, 3); Y. W. C. A. Cabinet (3). Hail! the person who has accompanied the Girls " Glee Club through its initial years! This Easthampton maiden has complimented us by choosing our College in preference to Middlebury, which she left at the beginning of our sophomore year. She can do well anything she sets out to do — music, studies, or dancing. Her contagious giggle has captured the hearts of many of the girls at the Abbey. Cornell holds a charm for her which comes near to surpassing the attraction which Aggie offers. Zurich Secondary School HANS BAUMGARTNER " HANS " Zurich, Switzerland Pittsfield, Mass. 1903; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1); Glee Club (2, 3). Fresh from the mountains of Switzerland, Hans burst upon us with all the vigor and enthu- siasm of the Alpine breezes. Either the Swiss atmosphere must be all that is claimed for it, or Hans is a Mellen ' s Food Product, for he is the class strong man, and has proved his mettle in more than one freshman-sophomore contest. Neither do studies hold terrors for him. Without in- tending in any way to refer to the old saying, we may note that Hans often asks questions which the " profs " cannot answer. 54 THE 1928 INDEX Medfield High School GORDON EVERETT BEARSE " GIBBIE " Medfield, Mass. 1907; Poultry; Class Baseball (1); Alpha Gamma Rho. Those who do not really know " Gibbie " are apt to consider him a very quiet and retiring youth. But once inside of this reserve, you will find him very different. He is one of the most amiable and likeable members of our class. His " side-kick " , " Bi ll " Boper, holds him pretty con- sistently to his books, but " Gibbie " never lets his studies interfere with his education. MARJORIE ELISE BEEMAN " MARG " Ware, Mass. Ware High School 1906; Agricultural Education: Delta Phi Gamma. " Marge " is one of our most cheerful co-eds. Everyone on the Campus knows her cheery smile and friendly " Hello " . She is always working, but somehow finds time for an active interest in everybody and everything about her. We have never known her to be disagreeable or uncon- genial. Her ambition in life is to write " A " themes for Prof. Rand, and some day we may hear of her as a famous contemporary authoress. We shall always remember " Marge " as an outstand- ingly cheerful person who will some day own the world, if there is a law of compensation. Central High School DAVID CARLTON BRADFORD " DAVE " Springfield, Mass. 1906; Landscape Gardening; Alpha Gamma Rho. " Say, did you hear the one about the fellow that — " . When you hear this you may be sure that " Dave " is somewhere around. His repertoire of stories and manner of presentation are with- out equal. He is small but powerful. In fact, this energetic son of West Springfield chooses to be called " dynamite " . " Dave " is a harmonica player of no mean ability, having made one public appearance at a smoker, after which, it is claimed, he turned down several offers to go " pro " . Rumor has it that " Dave " has been seen lurking around the Abbey after dark, but he refuses to make any statements for the press concerning this. " Dave " intends to become a landscaper. 55 THE 1928 INDEX WAI.TER ABNER BRAY " WALT " Amherst, Mass. Searles High School 1905; Chemistry; Musical Clubs (1, 2, 3); Theta Chi. It is needless to introduce Walter, for he is the proud owner of the flivver with red wheels, which will not even coast downhill. He has a smile for everyone, and it is even said that the piano smiles when he tickles the ivories while leading his orchestra. Even though he chose Chemistry as his major, he cannot be called foolhardy, for he has hopes of becoming a great chemist, if Dr. Peters can be persuaded to that effect. Walter is one of the very few who do not believe in studying for finals. HORACE TAYLOR BROCKWAY, JR. " BROCK " South Hadley, Mass. Holyoke High School 1906; Landscape Gardening; Manager Class Basketball (1); Asst. Manager Varsity Basket- ball (3); Junior From Committee (3); Class Baseball (1); Q. T. V. The pride of South Hadley didn ' t waste any time in making himself known after his arrival on the campus, and his fame (or notoriety) has increased daily. " Brud " is always ready to engage in any dangerous enterprise, whether it be hazing freshmen, going to the Abbey, or playing bridge all night. Although he has been accused of studying, no one has ever caught him in the act, but he did work for the assistant managership of basketball. Anyone who knows his propensity for " riding " is not surprised at his majoring in Military. DOROTHY ANN CHAPMAN " DOT " Newtonville, Mass. Newton High School 1905; Agricultural Education; Y. W. C. A. Cabinet (2); Delta Phi Gamma. We, personally, were always sorry that " Dot " ceased to be the athletic girl that she was during our freshman year. She was a wonder to behold behind the bat, and you should have seen her on the soccer field! However, sbe transferred her energy to the Charleston and became very adept at that art. " Dot ' s " intimate acquaintances can testify that she is a refreshing and loyal friend whose artistic and dramatic abilities are equal to her athletic achievements — which is saving a great deal. 56 THE 1928 INDEX HAROLD EUGENE CLARK ■CLARKIE " Montague, Mass. Turners Falls High School 190G; Agricultural Education; Class Treasurer (2); Collegian (1, 2, 3); Index (3); Inter- fraternity Conference (3); Honor Council (3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. It is needless to try to enumerate all of Harold ' s fine points because they are known to each and everyone of us. He first rose from obscurity during our spohomore year when we all became envious of his high scholastic record. However, he cannot rightly be called a grind, as his position on the Collegian and as Editor-in-Chief of our noble year-book will testify. His reputation for honesty and reliability has won for him a seat on the Honor Council as one of our class repre- sentatives. ALBERT CAIRNES COOK " AL " Waverly, Mass. Belmont High School 1902; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1); Varsity Football (2, 3) : Senate (3); In- terclass Athletic Board (3); Junior Prom Committee (3); Class Captain (2, 3); Class Hockey (1,2); ClassBasketbalKl, 2, 3); Phi Sigma Kappa. See the boy making the gorilla face just before he tears through the opposing team for a first down. ' That ' s " Cookie! " . But looks on the gridiron are often deceiving, for " Cookie " is a good- natured, big-hearted fellow. Aside from his accomplishments in football and hockey, " Cookie " made a very creditable class captain. We wonder why he always comes back from a Belmont week-end rejuvenated. There ' s a reason! Best o ' luck, " Cookie " . DOROTHY MABEL COOKE " DOT " Richmond, Mass. Brighton High School 1906; Botany; Girls ' Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Delta Phi Gamma. " Dot " is a girl still to be discovered by many of us. She objects to being called a " studious student " , but let us say that she is a corking good one. Science and literature are her specialties. Who knows but that some day we may boast of having a poet as a classmate? Or perhaps another Madame Cure will startle the scientific world with her discoveries. As owner of the " Cookie Shop " " Dot " accumulates many shekels and keeps the " Abbeyites " from starvation. THE 1928 INDEX Amherst High School FRANCIS JEREMIAH CROWLEY " FRANK " Amherst, Mass. 1905; Chemistry; Q. T. V. If, when you are peacefully slumbering through a dull lecture, you suddenly receive a violent poke in the ribs, you can be fairly certain that the person behind you is the individual whose picture appears herewith. His liking for practical jokes sometimes b rings surprising results, but one must hand it to him for the success with which he " kids " the profs along into thinking that he knows something about his studies. Like all great men, he suffers an occasional illusion, one of which is that he can play bridge. JAMES HUGH GREY CUNNINGHAM " JIM " Quincy, Mass. Quincy High School 1907; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1, 2): Index (3); Interfraternitj- Con- ference (3); Asst. Manager Varsity Hockey (3); Glee Club (3); Alpha Sigma Phi. " Jim " is one of these quiet, unassuming souls who ever form a very important part of every college community. Deeds, not words, characterize his actions. He is always found ready to tackle the varsity gridsters for a scrimmage and to emerge from a bruise-inflicting heap with a smile. In a more artistic mood, he accompanies the Glee Club in its numerous concerts. We trust that " Jim " will always possess his likable qualities which have gained for him such a long list of friends. Arlington, Mass. 1906; Pomology; RICHARD JACKSON DAVIS " DICK " Arlington High School Class Football (1); Class Hockey (1); Manager Varsity Baseball (3); Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Maroon Key (2) ; Phi Sigma Kappa. " Dick " is another on Aggies long list of big men hailing from Arlington. Like those who have preceded him, he has great possibilities as a hockey player. He is also kept busy by his position as manager of baseball and by his job in the cafeteria; but, in addition, he found time to serve his class on the Maroon Key Society, the Soph-Senior Hop Committee, and as class treasurer. He is the great organizer of class smokers. " Dick ' s " popularity is well deserved. 58 THE 1928 INDEX CAROLYN DEAN lltica, New York Utica Free Academy 1904; Landscape Gardening; Women ' s Student Council (2, 3); Delta Phi Gamma. Carolyn is just naturally a leader. She has been co-ed chairman of our class for three years, during which time the girls have been continually active, successfully staging a rebellion (remember the faded green tassels on those tams. ' ) and gladly cooperating with the boys whenever the oppor- tunity presented itself. Of a rather silent nature, Carolyn is not easily taken into one ' s circle of intimates, but the Abbey (and a favored few outside) have come to know her as a lively character, with an ever-working sen.se of humor. Anyone who has been privileged to ride in the " Amoeba " with Carolyn at the helm will realize that she has her lighter moments, at which time she is fully capable of taking a corner on two wheels and faith. IAN OLIPHANT DENTON . ' VUleboro, Mass. Norton High School 1906; Poultry. Denton hails from the " City of Jewelry " , and that undoubtedly explains how he can support his flivver and still have money enough left to go to college. We never hear much from him, but when it comes to courses in An Hus, he certainly knows what he is talking about. Never ' try to argue with him about rural topics. His unsurpassable strength is made obvious by the manner in which he balances a tray on occasions. WILLIAM HILL DRAPER, JR. " BILL " Watertown, Mass. Watertown High School 1905; Landscape Gardening; Musical Clubs (1); Maroon Key (2); Kappa Sigma. " Bill " had an ambition to become the class fusser, but so far he has contented himself by say- ing it with music. So well does he say it that he was chosen class musician. If, while passing the " Mem " Building in the evening, you chance to hear a saxophone with " that rich, sweet tone " , you can be sure that " Bill " is putting the blue notes into the latest. " Bill " is majoring in Land- scape, and we know that if he can lay out a park as readily as he can play a " hot " chorus, he will l)e a success. 59 THE 1928 INDEX HOEATIO MALCOLM DRESSER " MAC " South Hadley, Mass. Brookline High School 1905; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1); Class Track (1); Index (3); Varsity Track (2, 3); Alpha Sigma Phi. " Mac " is another member of the editorial board of this volume, and has proven an invaluable assrt with his hard-working typewriter. However, it is on the athletic field that he is seen at his best. His mighty right arm has won many points for the Maroon and White, and we hope that it will continue to do so. " Mac " must have some of the proverbial Yankee blood in his veins, for the rapidity with which he has swapped cars has overwhelmed us. LAWRENCE WILLIAM ELLIOTT " LOS " Waltham, Mass. Waltham High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Class Hockey (1); Lambda Chi Alpha. " Los " is a staunch member of one of our prominent campus trios. AVere it not for his rather elongated stature, " Los " would doubtle.=s be a hockey star, but his extremities are rather hard to handle. The Military Department was sorely disappointed when he failed to elect the advanced 11. O. T. C. course. He made such a fine sergeant last year, in spite of the fact that he occasionally appeared at drill leggingless, but not beardlessi " Los ' s " propensity for studying finds outlet in numerous Aggie Ed courses. Lawrence High School JOSEPH ANDREW EVANS " JOE " Lawrence, Mass. 1904; Farm Management; Q. T. V. The only thing loud about " Joe " is the h air on his head, and even that is of a rather conser- vative hue, as far as red goes. He transferred from New Hampshire State L niversity to become a member of 1927 when thej ' were sophomores, but he was unable to return. Last fall, the class of 1928 welcomed him as a worthy member. In spite of the fact that he rooms in North College, " IJed " has proved himself to be a respectful and law-abiding student. In athletics, football and baseball draw his attention. 60 THE 1928 INDEX Grcoiifit ' ld High School SETH JUDSON EWER " JOE " Leydcn, Mass. 1905; Botany. Seth has been in the public eye ever since he landed on our Campus. In fact, he could not help himself, for he presides at all our chapel exercises with his beloved instrument, the pipe-organ. He is admired by freshmen, wondered at by sophomores, loved bj ' juniors, and proclaimed by seniors. In spite of Seth ' s untiring habit of playing the organ at chapel exercises, he is a real good sort and will make a name for himself in the botanical world, we are sure. THOMAS WELLS FERGUSON, JR. " TOM " Stow, Mass. Hale High School 1905; Landscape Gardening; Manager Class Football (1); Asst. Manager Varsity Footliall (;i); Rifle Team (1, 2); Aggie Revue (2); Theta Chi. Although " Tommy " comes from a nine oclock town, (Stow), we may justly place him at least three hours ahead of his little village, for we know that small villages do not always produce mis- ogynists. " Tommies " ability to grow a good-sized moustaehio, combined with his semi-weekly trip to the Mountain proves this. We know that if " Tommy " goes into his work after graduation as he has into his managership of football and his Landscape Gardening studies, he will surely make good. FREDERIC JAMES FLEMINGS " FREDDY " Sharon, Mass. Huntington School 1904; Landscape Gardening; Varsitv Relav (2); Class Track (1, 2); Class Football (2): Class Baseball (2); Theta Chi. Little " Freddy " is the pet of his friends. He is a cute little fellow with a tenor voice which may be heard ordering the boys around the drill field. He also has that amount of vim and vigor which small people commonly have and which may account for the fact that he is not ashamed of anybody — no, not even " Fat " Burrell. AVe shall have to admit his good looks, which may account for his leanings towards the Abbey rather than to other nearby institutions. He has an active body and an able mind which will surely contribute to his success. 61 THE 1928 INDEX JOSEPH HENRY FOREST " JOE " Arlington, Mass. Arlington High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Varsity Cross-Country (2); Varsity Hockey (2, 3) ; Captain Varsity Hockey (3); Alpha Gamma Rho. This gay young blade hails from the land of celery and lettuce, and evidently of skaters, for " Joe " is captain of our hockey team. He has an uncanny way of giving our opponents that sinking sensation every time he takes one of his famous drives at the cage. " Joe " has also loped around some with the " hill and dalers " . He also swings a wicked potato scoop in the serving line at Draper. In addition to all this, he still finds time to be a frequent caller at the Abbey and to major in Aggie Ed. His second favorite past-time is arranging schedules devoid of afternooa classes. ROBERT LEO FOX " BOB " Ware, Mass. Ware High School 1904; Agricultural Education; Index (3); Roister Doisters (2 ,3); Q. T. V. There was a time when it wasn ' t safe to ask " Bob " " Ware " he came from, but college has changed him, although he still won ' t believe that anyone is serious when speaking about his curly hair, rosy cheeks, and sparkling eyes. The fact that he is chosen as a movie actor ought to con- vince him that the compliments which he gets are more than flattery, but it doesn ' t. As a side activity " Bob " goes in for football, and has ambitions to become as expert at line-breaking as he is at heartbreaking (unknowingly); but he ' ll have to go some! PAUL FREDERICK FRESE " PAUL " Waltham, Mass. ' Waltham High School 1906; Floriculture; Rifle Team (1, 2); Varsitv Hockey (2, 3) ; Class Hockev; Lambda Chi Alpha. Paul has that widely sought quality of minding his own affairs. While he can often be seen walking pensively about the Campus, only those of us who know him well understand his true virtues. His ability on the runners was early noticed by the hockey coaches, and he became a fixed quantity on the varsity. Floriculture seems to have the greatest attraction for Paul, and he may often be found in the greenhouses planning his life ' s work upon graduating from Aggie. We fail to see anything but success in this field for such an energetic, conscientious horticulturist as Paul. THE 1928 INDEX CHARLES EDWIN GIFFORD " EDDIE " Sutton, Mass. North High School 1907; Landscape Gardening; Class Football (1); Kappa Sigma. This original artist is, of course, -finding an outlet for expression in Landscape. " Eddie " has quite an aptitude for sketching, and we expect to hear more from him as years go by. " Eddie " also works out in the Drill Hall quite often now as he is majoring in Military. The R. O. T. C. J$and lost a valuable and conspicuous member when " Eddie " and his big horn advanced to the junior class. MAXWELL HENRY GOLDBERG " M. X " Sloneham, Mass. Boston Latin School 1907; Agricultural Education; Roister Doisters (1, 2, 3); Varsity Debating (2, 3); M. A. C. C. A. Cabinet (3); Interfraternity Conference (3); Delta Phi Alpha. This dark-haired youth with the dreamy eyes managed to keep him.self well hidden during most of our freshman year. However, anyone who could get a hundred regularly in " Doe " Tor- rey ' s Botany couldn ' t remain inconspicuous for long; especially as he has kept up the good work in all his other courses. " Max " is also an orator of parts, as he proved by winning the Burnham Declamation Contest. Furthermore, he has earned membership in the Roister Doisters, and, as if lliis were not enough, he is an all around good fellow, and a loyal s upporter of the class of 1928. HARRIET PHOEBE HALL " HARRIET " Great Barrington, Mass. Searles High School 1906; Chemistry; Girls " Glee Club (2, 3); Y. W. C. A. Cabinet (3). Phoebe is a part of the Batchelder-Hall partnership, and like her other half, she joined us in our sophomore year. It is a shame that she does not show to the casual observer all the fine qual- ities which we have found in her, now that we know her. Phoebe prefers gold to silver as far as ordinary speech is concerned, but her lusty voice is an estimable asset to the Girls " Glee Club. Her undying loyalty to the Y. W. C. A. has helped to put this organization on its feet, and her brilliant scholastic record is an honor to Aggie. 63 THE 1928 INDEX JOHN STANLEY HALL " STAN " I ynn, Mass. Classical High School lOOO; Chemistry; Class Track (1); Varsity Track (2); Varsity Relay ( ' •2, 3) ; Captain Var- sily Relay (3); Alpha Gamma Rho. This fair lad comes to us from the land of the famous vegetable compound. It was not long after he had shaken the fetters of the home town that he realized his latent social abilities. Now he lists among his conquests the Abbey, Mt. Holyoke. The Peoples Institute, Miss Parker ' s, and numerous others. But the place where " Stan " really shows his stuff is on the track. He is our stellar quarter-miler and captain of relay. " Stan " intends to be a chemist when he leaves his Alma Mater and will undoubtedly make good in his chosen field. ALEXANDER CARLTON HODSON " ALEC " Itcading, Mass. Reading. Mass. 1906; Entomology; Class Track (1); President Maroon Key (2); Chairman, Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Senate (2); Informal Committee (3); Chairman, Junior Prom Committee (. ' !); Index (3); Class Vice-President (2); Sigma Phi Epsilon. " Alec " is one of those easy-going fellows who worries about nothing, but who is always busy. During his leisure hours, he may usually be found at the Memorial Building, of which he is one of the guardians and which is always spick and span as a result of his labors. His various activities listed above are ample proof of the part which he is taking in extra-curriculum activities. His work, however, does not occupy all his time, as he may be seen wending his way towards the . bbey occasionally (say twice a week). He is one of the chosen few who have made themselves conspicuous by absence from the Dean ' s Board every term. J5ERTRAM HOLBROOK HOLLAND " BERT " Millis, Mass. Millis High School 1908; Chemistry; Q. T. V. Here we have another young gentleman who believes that the best way to go through college is to stick strictly to one ' s own business. Not that he isn ' t always willing to help you out. but he seems to have a dislike for obtrusiveness. However. " Bert ' s " character has unsuspected depth, and one who didn ' t know him might even be shocked at times; but we must blame that on the corrupting influence of college life. In pursuance of his desire to make the most of college. " Bert " is majoring in Chemistry and Military. Can you imagine him bawling out the freshmen. " 64 THE 1928 INDEX FRANK FULLER HOMEYER " FRANKIE " Wcllesley, Mass. Welloslcy Higli School 1906; Agricultural Economics; Class Cross-Country (1); Aggie Revue (3); Roister Doisters (2,3); Interfraternity Conference (3) ; Theta Chi. Did you ever meet " Frankie " ? Well, just drop around to the fraternity house some evening, and come prepared to laugh, for Frank is one of the funniest and most likeable men in the class. After having seen the Prom Show last ,vear, who could doubt, should Frank so desire, that he has a future ahead of him as a comedian. ' One would think that with his natural wit he would be just the man to take a couple extra years of Military, but for some reason he does not take kindly to the army and prefers to spend his time wrestling with questions which " Doc " Cance springs every once in a while. Conwav High School WALTER MORTON ROWLAND " WALT " Conway, Mass. 1907; Poultry; Alpha Gamma Rho. This retiring swain from the wilderness of Conway manages to keep himself in seclusion the greater part of his time. It is reported that he has been seen on the campus on his way to a class, but we could not find any evidence to actually prove this. We figure that " Walt " must be one of those people that you read about, who don ' t have much to say but who do a lot of thinking. He was acclaimed by his classmates as class rustic. Amherst High School WILLIAM EATON HYDE " BILL " Amherst, Mass. 1905; Landscape Gardening; Class Track (1); Theta Chi. Among the thirty or more fellows who have glimpses of " Bill " every day, he is the only one who knows whether his hair is marcelled or not, and he won ' t tell! " Bill " is an energetic soul who needs only a gun or a phonograph to start his feet moving. We expect to see jovial " Bill " , in company with his brother, distinguishing himself with the firm of " Hyde and Hide, Landscape . rchitects. " 65 THE 1928 INDEX THOMAS JOSEPH KANE " TOM- Wostfiekl, Mass. St. Mary ' s High School 1906; Agricultural Education: Class Basketball (1); Basketball (3); Q. T. V. The product of Westfield and St. Anselm ' s College, " Tom " arrived on the campus with the class of 1928, and with the aid of his red-headed partner in crime, has succeeded in making the expression " Kane and Mahoney " , a synonym for excitement. He has all the qualifications for a comedy villain, and it is a shame for him to be wasting his time at an agricultural college. How- ever, he does forget himself once in a while and take things seriously, as can be seen by watching him on a basketball court. Hingham High School ROBERT JOSEPH KARRER " BOB " Hingham, Mass. 190G; Poultry; Class Football (1, 2); Phi Sigma Kappa. Out from the hills of Hingham came this hardy youth. At home on the football field as well as in the classroom is " Bob " . " Blind dates " hold no terror for him, and he is as lucky as if his pockets were filled with proverbial horseshoes. A militant of the first order, " Bob ' s " notes have helped many a rookie over the rough spots in military training. He has developed a love for horse- back riding, and a common nightly ride for him is over the Notch to South Hadley. RICHARD COOLIDGE KELTON " DICK " llubbardston, Mass. Worcester North High 1903; Farm Management; Varsity Football (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. If you happen to notice hanging around North Dorm a blue-eyed, blond, big boy with a smile like the morning sun, that ' s " Dick " . And if you wish consolation of any sort, stop in and see this dry humorist. He ' ll cure you of homesickness or lovesickness as quick as a wink and send you away with a light heart. " Dick " is persevering in everything from football to " Vet " courses. He says little but docs a lot. " When " Dick " decided to return to College after a year of business, it was a lucky day for the class of ' 28. 66 THE 1928 INDEX WELLINGTON KENNEDY Rid Bank. X. J. 1906; Landscape Gardening; Index (3) Red Bank High Scliool Interfraternity Conference (,S); Manager, Class Hoclcey(l); Kappa Epsilon This quiet classmate of ours came into prominence during the hockey season of our freshman year, for he was one of the aspirants for the hockey managership. How well we remember those cold days when he kept us out in the cold shoveling off the rink! He stuck to it as long as we did, so we had no complaint to offer. You also remember he was one of the promoters of the flower show last fall, at which he exhibited his artistic taste to such good advantage. This Index contains further proof of his talent. DANA JUDSON KIDDER, JR. " KID " Fayville, Mass. Peters High School 1900; Landscape Gardening; Index (3); Maroon Key (2); Theta Chi. Ever since " Kid " came to college from " Fayville-Two-Poles Ahead " , his influence has been apparent. As a member of his fraternity basketball team he is a constant worry to opponents, while his work on the track during his first two years was of a highly commendable type. But that for which we like " Kid " best is his friendly spirit and unquenchable jovial attitude toward everyone. His tall stature, blond complexion, and nimble feet are determining factors in his pop- ularity with the ladies. His ability as a budding artist is apparent from his pen strokes wilhin this Index. JOHN ADAMS KIMBALL " JACK " Littleton, Mass. Littleton High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2); Junior Prom Committee (3); Manager, Class Baseball (1); Ass ' t. Manager, Musical Clubs (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. " Jack " isn ' t a very big fellow, and he doesn ' t come from a very big town, but. say, did you ever see him in a scrap? Particularly an interclass scrap. He always picks out the big fellows, and once he gets them in his clutches he has no mercy upon them. Wherever there is any excite- ment, " Jack " is sure to be found; or, to say it better, wherever " Jack " is, excitement is sure to be found. He is our terpsichorean supreme and a shining social light — such a brilliant light, in fact, that he was elected to both the Soph-Senior Hop and Junior Prom Committees. 67 THE 1928 INDEX CONSTANTINE PERICLES LADAS " DINNY " Athens, Greece University of Athens Boston, Mass. 1901; Agricultural Education. To hustling, bustling America came " Dinny " from far-off, romance-loving Greece, filled with the echoes of its ancient glory. We have not seen much of " Dinny " in our various class activities. Possibly it is because of the difficulty which he has in adjusting himself to the peculiarities of our thoughts and actions. Moreover, " Dinny " is a student who may be found at almost any time pouring over his books in some secluded corner of the library. We are glad that " Dinny " has come to our Campus. He affords a striking and refreshing contrast between our own prosaic materialism and the spirit of Greece, with its delight in the sensuously beautiful, its deep appre- ciation of the artistic. DONALD RICHER LANE " DON " Brockton, Mass. Brockton High School 1906; Landscape Gardening; Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Class Football (1); Class Hockey (1); Class Baseball (1); Six-Man-Rope-Pull (2); Varsity Hockey (2) ; Phi Sigma Kappa. Perhaps it was his hailing from the " Shoe City " that enabled " Don " to be the star kicker on our freshman football team. He always has been a mainstay for the Class of 1928 when a class scrap or contest was underway. " Don ' s " hobby is military, but we wonder why he always starts Abbeyward with an extra horse? North Dorm has quite a hold on him, for in spite of the appeal of fraternity life, he continues to hibernate in the Dorm and hold the underclassmen from becoming too rebellious. Despite his reticence, our class soldier is deservedly popular. ALBERT JOSEPH LAPRISE " AL " Great Barrington, Mass. Searles High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Index (3); Class Track (1); Lambda Chi Alpha. From the foothills of the Berkshires came a youth to our campus one day. How he was able to leave the " Gateway of Nature " and spend his valuable time here we have not yet found out, but " AI " is still with us and continues to make our gatherings amusing by his wit. " Al " never rushed the " Abbeyites " , but acts as advisor to some of them. Some day we expect to find him the head of the Undina Soda Water Company, where his effervescent qualities, attested by his selection as class wit, will have ample outlet. 68 THE 1928 INDEX Holyoke High School ELIZABETH RUTH LASSITER " BETTV Holyoke, Mass. 1906; Home Economics; Aggie Revue (2); Delta Phi Gamma. The tall, lily-like personage is Elizabeth Ruth. She goes to all parties, smiles at all men with equal fervor, except one, wears clothes well, and can talk about nothing for hours without showing a sign of fatigue, and leaves her hearer amused and asking for more when she has finished. If she knew what we were writing she ' d say " Go bang your head! " and make eyes at us, and then show us the camel dance from " Criss-Cross " . " Betty " is our liveliest co-ed, and never " too-tired " for anything, whether it be a trip to Springfield in a doubtful fliver, or an all-night dance. KARL GEORGE LAUBENSTEIN " LAUBIE " Maynard, Mass. Maynard High School 1903; Agricultural Education; Glee Club (2, 3); Kappa Gamma Phi. Although " Laubie " , who spent his " frosh days " at Northeastern University, did not enter M. A. C. as a freshman, and did not have to endure the various trials and tribulations which fell to the lot of the incoming neophytes, never-the-less, he has been an ardent supporter of his adopted class on more than one occasion. Our first recollection of " Laubie " consists of a picture of a quick- stepping individual who eternally puffed away at a cigarette. Time has revised our concept. Behind a quiet, taciturn e.xterior are to be found calm confidence and unswerving perseverance, together with an alert mind, ready wit, and warm sympathy and understanding. Technical High School JULIA RUTH LAWRENCE " JULIE " Springfield, Mass. 1906; Botany; Delta Phi Gamma. Twinkle, twinkle, little light. Over in the Chem Lab bright. How we look for you in vain From within our window panel " Julie " claims she is majoring in Botany, but we all think her chief interest is Chemistry and " black tomcats " . Isn ' t it true, Julia. " Julie " is a girl from " Tech " who means a world to us. A fine scout leader, a friendly, yet reserved person is she, who has pronounced likes and dislikes. If you don ' t know her, it is time you became acquainted. She ' s fine, all through. 69 THE 1928 INDEX Chicopee High School CHARLES SMITH LEONARD " CHARLIE " Chicopee, Mass. 1906; Chemistry; Class Basketball (1); Lambda Chi Alpha. " Charlie " is one of our most adept trippers of the light fantastic, and is frequently seen at almost any dance in the vicinity. His inclination toward travel resulted in the purchase of a — no. you couldn ' t call it an automobile. " Charlie " evidently prefers to purchase nicotine instead of gasoline, however, for on week-days he ambles up to the Chem Lab with a stogy between his teeth. DOROTHY LUELLA LEONARD " DOT " West Springfield, Mass. West Springfield High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Index (3); Secretary Women ' s Student Council (3); Delta Phi Gamma. Do you crave an understanding soul to comfort you. ' That is " Dots " . Whether you are walking, reading poetry, playing tennis, studying, or having a heart to heart talk, you are sure to enjoy it more if it ' s with " Dots " . As a roommate, she is a dear, but do you rem ember, " No Ice Today ' ? A sincere and loving friend, a girl of many moods, who lives intensely and is well oil the way to literary genius is " Dots " . We have indications from time to time that Dorothy is interested in the Irish; in fact, she spends quite a portion of her time in studying them. MARGARET ELIZABETH LINCOLN " PEG " Shirley, Mass. West Lebanon Academy 1906; Rural Home Life; Delta Phi Gamma. " Peg " is a girl some unfortunates haven ' t become very well acquainted with yet. She left Drexel to join us in our sophomore year, and has had to struggle against the usual lot of a transfer in making up courses. Modest and unassuming, yet genial and interested in people, " Peg " has a world of interests to look forward to. We predict a brilliant future for her in the realm of dietetics, and expect her to fill the place which Miss MacDonald now holds in the hearts (stomachs) of future . gates. 70 THE 1928 INDEX Hingham High School ROBERT ALEXANDER LINCOLN ' BOB " Hingham, Mass. 1907; Landscape Gardening; Class Football (I); Theta Chi. Who knows what sort of a man may have been foisted upon us in this quiet chap from Hing- ham. ' " Bob ' s " most distinguishing characteristic is his reticence, but his intimate friends who have experienced his dry humor and subtle sarcasm can vouch for his ability to make his own way. " Bob " is decidedly more conspicuous during summer vacations; he makes a thrilling life-guard at Nantasket! MARGARET ADAMS LITTLE " PEG " Newburyport, Mass. Newburyport High School 1900; Rural Home Life; Delta Phi Gamma. When " Peggy " entered M, A. C. she was a chubby little girl who talked baby-talk. With her curly, yellow hair and big, blue eyes she furnished comfortable relaxation for masculine eyes. She has come to have real dignity, and has changed in many ways. For instance, she has centered her attentions, and we agree that she knows whereof she speaks when she says her kitchen is all planned. To the girls who know her well, " Peggy " is a constant joy for her sunny disposition and sweetness. We are happy indeed to have her for a friend, and wish her all happiness in her Home Economics in tlie vears to come. DOUGLAS WINTHROP LORING " DOUG " Springfield, Mass. Central High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Collegian (1, 2, 3); Maroon Key {-2); Soph-Senior Hop Committee (2) ; Phi Sigma Kappa. A stranger upon entering the room of this " City of Homes " hero would wonder whether it were a photographer ' s studio or the room of a born fusser. The only justification " Doug " gives is that all his pictures are of the same girl. His philosophy is perhaps best expressed by the following quo- tation: " The whisper of a beautiful woman can be heard further than the loudest yell of duty. " This curly-headed youth from Springfield, with his literary ability, his musical talent, and his at- tractive personality is sure to reach the heights. 71 THE 1928 INDEX ELIZABETH PERRY LOVE •■HETTY " South Worcester, Mass. Mary E. Wells High School 1901; Agricultural Education. Bustling, Breezy, Busy — we connect every one of these words with " Betty " . She received her early training at Skidmore, and has never been able to shake off its influence completely. It has been said of " Betty " that she has never made an unkind remark about anyone, but she tells us that we do not know her. " Betty " makes a pleasant companion when she snatches away a " few " minutes from her ever-pressing lessons. And, if you still believe that women can ' t keep secrets, you don ' t know " Betty " . EDWIN ELLIOTT MARSH " RED " Pittsfield, Mass. Hartford High School 1902; Landscape Gardening; Glee Club (3); Interfraternity Confernece (3); Q. T. V. " Red " joined the ranks of the Class of 1928 at the beginning of our sophomore year, and the color and te.xture of his reddish-gold locks have made him as well-known as his quiet disposition will allow. The impressiveness of his appearance was once augmented by a moustache, which aroused the jealousy of the seniors, and thereby hangs a tale. Although his musical ability occasionally shows itself, he is generally seen and not heard. " Red " presents a proof that dislike for publicitj ' is no detriment to popularity. LEON CHESTER MARSTON, JR. " CHET " Brockton, Mass. Brockton High School 1905; Entomology; Six-Man-Rope-Pull (1, 2); Lambda Chi Alpha. " Chet " hails from the shoe manufacturing town of Brockton. We see little of him ordinarily, for he seems to keep himself absorbed in his books most of the time. But he is always at hand when class activities loom up, and his sturdy physical make-up has never failed to add a power to our rope pulls and banquet scraps. If " Chet " takes his future tasks in hand in the same manner in which he has taken his college duties, and several odd-classmen, success and accomplishment await him. 72 THE 1928 INDEX WALTER HERMAN MARX " MARXIE " Holyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School 1906; Dairy: Class Football (1); Class Track (1); Glee Club (1, 2); Kappa Epsilon. " Marxie " realized his mistake very quickly when he decided to drop back into the class of ' 29, but his comeback was determined. After persuading the Dean that he belonged with us, and after repeating several courses in order to show the faculty that he had been misjudged, he was reinstated in the class of ' 28 once more. If you are desirous of a date " over the Mountain " , just speak to this " Shiek of Holvoke " . " Marxie " is also one of our huskiest gridsters. WALTER KENNETH McGUIRE " MAC " Whitinsvillc, Mass. Northbridge High School 1905; Landscape Gardening; Class Basketball (1, 2). " Mac " is a member of our championship interclass basketball team, and to him goes much of the credit earned in securing the pennant for our class. He hibernates in North College, where his alertness in securing " Information of the Enemy " played an important part in our class activities during our first two years. " A man without humor is like a wagon without springs " , ' tis said, so yon never need be jolted when you are with " Mac " , for his unostentatious wit is never-failing. LESLIE IRVING McEWEN " SQUASH " Winchester, Mass. Winchester High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1): Class Basketball (1, 2); Class Baseball (1); Lambda Chi Alpha. " Squash " — what an intriguing nickname, by the way — is a living proof of the old saying about appearances being deceitful, for wherever he may be, or whatever he may be doing, that sleepy expression is never absent from his face; but when you really get to know him, disillusionment is immediate and complete. He never allows life to become dull or uninteresting if he can help it. Even the peaceful and studious atmosphere of North College cannot subdue " Squash ' s " craving for excitement, which craving is probably the reason why basketball holds such evident attractions for him. 73 THE 1928 INDEX West Springfield High School ETHAN DANA MOORE " DOC " West Springfield, Mass. 1905; Landscape Gardening; Alpha Gamma Rho. Here is our Romeo. After a year at Northeastern, " Doc " decided that a co-educational school was the place for him, so he joined our ranks. He aspired to be a track man, but decided that this was outside his line, so he took up the genteel art of " hash-slinging " and now is waiter de-luxe of the dining hall. He is one of those few who can carry in ten mains on one tray with no serious after-effect. He is also an aesthetic soul who intends to spend his future beautifying Nature. ELIZABETH ALMA MOREY " CHILDY " Bolton, Mass. Quincy High School 1907; Agricultural Education; Class Historian (3); Delta Phi Gamma. " Childy " deserves more than a mere mention. The Abbey, which has seen her in all kinds of moods and tenses, considers her priceless. She is famous for i mpersonation and eccentric dancing, and everyone who attended our class banquet in 1926 will always remember " Betty ' s " stirring speech. " We hear she is also gifted as a musician and as a horsewoman. Reports have come to us of her prowess in the latter art, but " Childy " has laid away her big cello since her freshman year. She may yet distinguish herself in the realms of harmony, despite her erstwhile neglect of her music. ROBERT EARL MORIARTY " BOB " Monson, Mass. Monson Academy 1905; Agricultural Education; Varsity Baseball (2); Class Basketball (1); Alpha Gamma Rho. Our varsity short-stop. To see " Bob " leap or slide and smear a tough one is a sight never to be forgotten. When the snow begins to fall on the diamond, " Bob " goes indoors and works out with the " hoopster ' s club " , in which league he conducts himself with much credit. " Bob " is the possessor of a rare good nature and a smile that makes everyone his friend. Of late he has been making a series of mysterious trips back to the home town. Although he refuses to divulge any- thing on the matter, we believe he is not making these trips merely to buy a derby or a pair of socks. Whatever line he goes into, we are sure he will reach the top. 74 THE 1928 INDEX HAROLD LAURUD MORLAND " HAL " Islington, Mass. Norfolk County Agricultural School 1906; Agricultural Education; Class Hockey (1). Is it possible that there be anyone in college whom scandal dare not approach? Yes, for this is he: an individual so unobtrusive in manner, and so attentive to his own affairs that even campus gossip has never brought to light anything against his character; yet, despite this, a loyal sup- porter of the class of 1928. DANIEL JOSEPH MULHERN " DANNY " Roslindale, Mass. Jamaica Plain High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1); Class Baseball (1); Varsity Football (3); Alpha Sigma Phi. Many a less gifted soul has envied " Danny " his command of the mother tongue, which power evidently impressed his classmates in their selection of class characters. Of late, " Danny " has extended his activities from football and baseball to newspaper work, and rumors of revenge for undesired publicity have reached us from the objects of his endeavors. We have often wondered if " Danny " owned a razor strop. Holliston High School RALPH GORDON MURCH " MURCHIE " Holliston, Mass. 1907; Animal Husbandry; Sigma Phi Epsilon. Gordon is one of our campus mysteries. Apparently very shy and modest, he is perfectly at home when it comes to a free-for-all battle on a Northampton dance floor. Like most mysteries, there is a pleasant surprise for those who will penetrate within his characteristic reserve. He has a genialty and a ready wit of rare quality which are well worth discovering. 75 THE 1928 INDEX FRANK FREEMAN NOBLE ■ ' FRANK- Fall River, Mass. Bristol County Agricultural School 1907; Landscape Gardening; Glee Club (1); Varsity Football (1); Q. T. V. This husky youth hasn ' t exactly the profile of Valentino, but he is undeniably handsome, nevertheless, and the preservation of that " school girl complexion " must cost a lot of trouble. It would be too much to expect Frank to keep away from the Abbey, for he is generous with his af- fections. However, his social activities do not take up all his time, and this year he has blossomed forth as a football player of parts. Hudson High School JOHN LYMAN NUTTING •JACK " West Berlin, Mass. 1905; Pomology; Phi Sigma Kappa. " Silence is a virtue of the wise. " Little is known about this slender, dark-haired youth, but what is known is good. What would the dining hall do without " Jack " ? He is the first to arrive in the morning and the last to leave at night. He must have to heat the water and start the break- fast. " Jack " is majoring in Pomology, and spends many a fruitful moment in the orchards. ROBERT HAMMOND OWERS " BOB " Taunton, Mass. Tauton High School 190G; Landscape Gardening; Glee Club (2, 3); Ass ' t Manager, Roister Doisters (3); Fresh- man Debating Team (1); Alpha Gamma Rho. The first time we met " Bob " , he confided that just before he left home he heard a rumor about this Santa Clans business being a lot of " bunk " . But time changes all, and " Bob " is now the pos- sessor of what is undoubtedly the most vigorous and forceful vocabulary in captivity. The glitter of the stage attracted him and so he is to be our next manager of the Roister Doisters. Real- izing his Websterian qualities, he has gone in for debating. " Bob " also " warbles " in the Glee Club. He set out to be the French horn virtuoso of the band, but the horn was finally quietly and humanely put out of existence. THE 1928 INDEX JOSEPHINE PANZICA " JOE- Arlington, Mass. Boston Girls " High School 1907; Agricultural Education: Collegian (1, 2. 3); Girls ' Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Index Board (3); Delta Phi Gamma. " Joe " is our Napoleon. Like him, she is short but energetic, and his spirit of leadership is reincarnated in the Abbey terpsichorean. Sicilian sunshine has been packed up in her brown eyes and smiling lips and brought here for our enjoyment. " Joe ' s " musical ability is frequently dis- played in the double trio of our Girls ' Glee Club. Incidently, she is one of the Abbey ' s cheerful lenders, always ready to lend a hand, clothes, food, or whatever you may ask. " Joe " is on the Collegian and has an ear for news which gives her all the " inside dope " on the Abbey gossip. THOMAS AUSTIN PICKETT " TOM " Beverly, Mass. Beverly High School 1907; Chemistry; Class Track. " Tom " is one of our loyal members who is content in upholding the social as well as the schol- astic side of college life. Although he is seldom seen at the " Abbey " or at many of our social func- tions, he is a frequent visitor to the distinguished campus over the Notch. He was one of the chosen few who received a bid to the Junior Prom there last spring. " Tom " enjoys his own com- pany, but is a very agreeable companion upon more intimate acquaintance. He hopes to be a chemist, and is well on the way to realization of his aim if marks are a criterion. Greenfield High School OLIVER SAMUEL PLANTINGA " OLLIE " Amherst, Mass. 1907; Chemistry; Football (2, 3). Oliver is one of the quiet members of the class from whom we hear very little, except when we wish his help in some branch of mathematics. In such tasks he excels. He has decided, neverthe- less, to devote his attention to Chemistry, and under Dr. Peter ' s guiding hand, he is acquiring the necessary technique. He is an equally hard worker on the football field, and next year should win a berth on the varsity eleven. If he is successful in making the team, w-e pity the man who tries to block his path. 77 THE 1928 INDEX SARAH THEODORA PLANTINGA Amherst, Mass. Greenfield High School 1905; Agricultural Education; Girls ' Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Delta Phi Gamma. This blonde maid, who is one of the few Aggie girls who live outside its sheltering walls, is a great loss to the Abbey. However, Sarah may often be seen in the living room as a quiet addition to our noontime group, or in more secluded nooks, visiting her friends. Few know Sarah for the quiet, lovable girl she is, but those who do like to be with her and start discussions with her, some- times. The peculiar thing about these arguments is that, although she does not alTvays come out the victor, she never allows her adversary to think that she has changed her opinions. Ualton High School Delta Phi Gamma. MARJORIE JOHNSON PRATT " MARG " Dalton, Mass. 1907; Agricultural Education; Class Secretary (1, 2. 3); Index (3); You tell us that she is not large. And we tell you right back to your face That you don ' t have to be big as a barge To be bonny and clever and kind. And tho ' she may not take very much space. You cant find a girl any nicer than " Marge " ! Although our rhyme may not be so good, you can see what we mean. Marjory is not obtrusive, but she has an air of " getting along " just the same. You just know she ' s going to " do things " when she gets big. She has already done things for that matter; her activities and other accom- plishments make a pretty good record for one bonny wee lassie. Despite her diligence, " Marge " enjoys dances and other social affairs as well as her lighter-minded sisters. CHARLES PUTNAM PRESTON " CHARLIE " Hawthorne, Mass. Gushing Academy 1905; Landscape Gardening; Varsity Cross-Country (2, 3); Class Track (1); Kappa Sigma. This bashful lad from Danvers showed track ability early as a freshman and since then has more than made good in cross-country. In the track meets he " kids along " his rivals until the middle of Prexy ' s hill is reached, and then bids them a regretful farewell and disappears in the dis- tance. His unassuming modesty has won him a host of friends, and although " Charlie " has taken long detours around the " fair sex " , we expect that some day he will surprise us by running over the Mountain. " Charlie " hopes to own a large estate in the future where he can incorporate some of his original ideas about landscaping. 78 THE 1928 INDEX STANLEY NICHOLS PRESTON ' •STAN- Hawthorne, Mass. Danvers High School 1907: Agricultural Economics; Colk-gian (1); Interfratcrnity Conference (3); Class Treas- urer (3); Kappa Sigma. We sometimes w ish that more of us could follow- " Stan ' s " example in avoiding burdensome activities and in concentrating our efforts on studies. It would certainly insure better work and more real enjoyment. " Stan " .served as class treasurer for a term, but his classmates, ignorant of his apprenticeship under Prof. Ford in " Farm Accounts " , deprived him of the books before he had a chance to put in order the jottings of his predecessors. Aversion for the fair sex must be an attribute of the Preston family. " Stan " is as bad as his brother. Weymouth High School HARRIET ELLISE PROCTOR " HAPPY " South Weymouth, Mass. 1906; Animal Husbandry; Delta Phi Gamma. It has been said that nicknames seldom do a person justice, but certainly " Happy ' s " fits her to perfection. She is open and frank and does not " give a snap " about conventions. Her one am- bition is to manage a farm with chickens, cows, and horses and everything on it. She is " crazy over " horses, horses, horses, and more horses, and travels all over the country with the judging team to see them. " Happy " is a loyal and true friend. JOHN FRANCIS QUINN " JACK " New Bedford, Mass. Holy Family High School 1904; Agricultural Education; Varsity Football (2, 3); Class Football (1); Class Baseball (1); Glee Club (1); Class Hockey (1). We once heard somebody say that he would hate to meet " Jack " on a dark night; and he probably never will star as a hero in the movies, but he is certain to succeed in anything else at which he tries his hand. The class didn ' t wake up to the extent of his talent until out sophomore year, when the arm of popularity reached out and landed him in the presidential chair. He doesn ' t have very much to say, but when he does, everybody listens, for when " Jack " makes a wise crack it ' s sure to be good. " Jack " does his rushing on the football field. 79 THE 1928 INDEX ARNOLD IDE REDGRA ' E " RED " Hopedalf, Mass. 1905; Agricultural Education; Class Football Football (2); Phi Sigma Kappa. One of the sterling Aggie Inn waiters is " Red " , winter nights. He is not entirely unfamiliar with the fairer sex as might be inferred from his elec- tion as " class fusser " . It is said that he is as much at home in Northampton as the mayor. On the dance floor, many an envious eye has watched " Reds " unique style of dancing. " Red " is never bothered by studies, and extemporary themes written at four o ' clock in the morning are his specialty. Hopedale High School (1): Class Hockey (1); Class Baseball (1); and manv a man has been fed bv him on cold ROLAND ELLSWORTH REED " ROLLY " Greenfield, Mass. Greenfield High School 1906; Agricultural Education; Class Basketball (1); Varsitv Basketball (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. He came in a storm of " Greenfieldites, " unheralded and unsung, but his ready smile and big heart brought friends from both ends of the campus. This diminutive flash has been one of the shining lights on our class basketball teams and has repeated his performances on the varsity. His potentialities, however, are not limited to athletics, for he also juggles a mean tray for the co-eds as well as " sharking " the economics courses by spending his spare time in the library. For " Roily ' " , we predict success; for Aggie, glory in having graduated him. CECIL CURTIS RICE " SAM " Worcester, Mass. Charlton High School 1907; Pomology; Class Baseball (1); Varsity Baseball (■•2); Varsity Relay (3); Football (2,3); Alpha Sigma ' Phi. Where " Sam " got his nickname we do not care, because everyone knows who " Sara " ' is. He used to be found at all hours of the night in Stockbridge Hall, as he was one of the trustworthy care- takers of that edifice. We always thought he was a confirmed bachelor until a little personal to the contrary appeared in the campus newspaper. We shall never forget how " Sam " ' pranced upon the football field during our sophomore year to play in a varsity game after having been out to practice for but a single week. 80 THE 1928 INDEX ALBION BARKER RICKER " AL " Turner, Maine Leavitt Institute 1907; Pomology; Class Baseball (1); Class Football (1): Index (3); Lambda Chi Alpha. " Al " has proved to us that there are just as many good business men " down East " in the alli- gator country of Maine as there are here in Massachusetts. Although he spends some of his sum- mers at M. A. C. studying (Y) and keeping the gentler sex in good humor, " Al " intends to enter the pomological fields of the Pine Tree State when he graduates. His perpetual grin and amiable dis- position make him a sturdy friend of all his classmates, even his coworkers on the Index. HARTWELL EVELETH ROPER -BILL ' Closter, N. Y. Englewood High School 1907; Animal Husbandry; Maroon Key (2); Cross-Country (2, 3); Varsity Track (2); Interfraternity Conference (3); Alpha Gamma Eho. Holder of that which we fondly hope and ferverently pray for, unlimited cuts! Mere things like exams mean nothing to " Bill " for he goes through them as if greased. Besides this he is a track man, and above all, one who is always eligible. He says little of his New Jersey friends at home, but rumors of him travel here from the campuses of various colleges attended by the fair sex. However, we can pin nothing definite on him as yet. Swampscott, Mass. EDWARD PARKER RYAN " PARKIE " Essex County Agricultural School 1904; Agricultural Education; Class Hockey (1, 2); Interfraternity Conference (3) ; Kappa Gamma Phi. " Parkie " prides himself upon the way he handles a tray in the dining hall. He never appears to be in a hurry, but he is always the first in line. He has won the reputation of being quite a dancer and is frequently seen exhibiting his art in Memorial Hall. The Soph-Senior Hop last spring was no exception. We do not mean to criticize, however, for we are only envious of his graceful bearing on the dance floor. In his more serious moments, " Parkie " is a real, hard-working student . 81 THE 1928 INDEX NEWELL ALLEN SCHAPPELLE " SCHAP " Hamburg, Pa. Franklin and Marshall Academy 1905; Botany; Varsity Track (2, 3); Varsity Relay (2. 3): Class Track (1); Alpha Gamma Rho. Known to his team mates as the " Flying Dutchman " and the " Iron Horse " , " Schap " is a notable runner, holding the E. I. C. A. A. half-mile record. " Schap " is a botanist-to-be and gets in good training by scrambling over Mount Toby in search of specimens. He likewise gets keen en- joyment in exploring the wilds of Boston with his team mates, where, according to his fellow-run- ners, it is necessary for them to constrain him. ERNEST JOHN SCHMIDT " ERNIE " Longmeadow, Mass. Central High School 1906; Chemistry; Maroon Key (2); Phi Sigma Kappa. What female is not susceptible to the smile of this fair-complected youth from Springfield ' s best suburb, as he terms it? To talk with " Ernie " , you would think that he was in immediate danger of flunking out of College, but each Dean ' s Saturday finds him a stranger to the board. Although he underestimates his own abilities, he always finds time to encourage others, and for- tunate are the many who count " Ernie " as a friend. Wilmington High School CHARLES JAMES SMITH, JR. " CHARLIE " North Wilmington, Mass. 1906; Animal Husbandry; Sigma Phi Epislon. Who owns the Memorial Building. ' No other than C. J. Smith. He is owner, manager, and welcome committee, all in himself. Anyone who visits our beautiful building will have missed its greatest charm if he has not been treated with a peal of laughter from " Charlie " . When he is not busy cleaning the decks in the aforementioned edifice, he is sure to be found in one of our neigh- boring cities. With all of his hilarity, " Charlie " is a steady worker and without a doubt will ac- complish a great deal in his special work. THE 1928 INDEX LESLIE ROCKWELL SMITH, JR. " EOCKY " Hadley, Mass. Hopkins Academy 1907; Chemistry; Collegian (1); Glee Club Orchestra (2, 3); Kappa Sigma. " Reekie " did not spring into the foot-lights until our sophomore year, and then he appeared like a flash. Starting with the Collegian, he branched off ' into the Glee Club. Now he has cen- tered his interests altogether in the Glee Club. We regretted his resignation from the Collegian, but it turned out to be the best move for him in the end. He is also one of our brilliant stars on the dance floor, and an eligible candidate for the position of " college commuter " . Little does he realize how fortunate he was in being excused from military. WALTER RUSSELL SMITH " WALT " Holden, Mass. Holden High School 1906; Chemistry; Roister Doisters (2); Freshman Debating Team (1); Glee Club Orchestra (2, 3) ; Alpha Gamma Rho. In this distinguished-looking person we have the one and only " pseudo chemist " . This nick- name he acquired in Chem 25, but since that time he has reversed the tables some what, and has showed the boys that he was born to be a chemist. He decided, however, that he could not keep all his knowledge in one poor head, so he is now storing it away in his educated pipe. We trust that this furnace will always stay with him, for without it he will be lost. The Abbey has no appeal for him whatsoever, but we should like to know why he persists in leaving us all to go to Quincy every few week-ends. It will be a sad day for the cafeteria management when " Smithy " tosses his last main onto the rack. BARBARA WILLSON SOUTHGATE " BOB " Sea View, Mass. Cambridge High and Latin School 1907; Animal Husbandry; Girls " Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Delta Phi Gamma. Perhaps you have heard of the Informals, or the Husking Bees, or the Hallowe ' en parties for which the Abbey is famous, but have j ' ou heard of the one who makes the perfect man at these affairs. ' " Bob " is the man of the occasion. She can wear a masculine costume with perfect ease and makes a gallant courtier. With a man ' s zeal she loves to stop by the roadside near a field of cattle to judge the grazing bovines. " Bob " is also interested in sports, especially horseback riding, and is extremely fond of dogs and horses. 83 THE 1928 INDEX ERNEST LEAVITT SPENCER ' •ERNIE " Lowell, Mass. Lowell High School 1906; Chemistry; Collegian (1, 2, 3); Index (3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. Perseverance, diligence, and conscientiousness are certainly the predominant characteristics of a student, and all these may rightly be claimed by " Ernie " . He has an envied record scholas- tically, and yet he has time to express himself for our benefit in the pages of the Collegian and as Literary Editor of this publication. As a soldier there are none better. They say " Ernie " can even stay on a horse now, and we have no doubt that he will cut quite a figure in that classy R. O. T. C. uniform. There is certainly a great chance for him with that extra hor.se. FRANK STRATTON " FRANK " Lawrence, Mass. Lawrence High School 1907; Agricultural Education; Glee Club (1, 2); Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Ath- letics (3); Manager, Varsity Track (3); Alpha Gamma Rho. Here is our business man, a familiar figure dashing around Alumni Field getting the " red hot dope " on the game, or bustling around the Drill Hall making arrangements for the track team, which he so ably manages. In the days of his apprenticeship for the aforesaid position, rumor has it that he was indiscreet with the Alkorub and the Sloan ' s Liniment. In spite of the heavy press of business, he still finds time to blend his rich and mellow tones with those of the other " warblers ' in the Glee Club. His versatility also displays itself in his poetry which has appeared in the Ynkhorne. CHARLES BURKE SULLIVAN " CHARLIE " Fall River, Mass. Bristol County Agricultural School 1904; Agronomy. " Sully " entered M. A. C. with the class of 1927, but evidently desiring more congenial com- ])any, he took a year ' s leave of absence and then returned to join us. " Sully ' is a romanticist, a devout admirer of Yeats, although he had extreme difficulty trying to convince B. F. Jackson that mysticism was akin to romanticism. Literary pursuits are not his principal interests in life, how- ever, for he astonished and also gratified the Agronomy Department by majoring in that division, where his ambition, combined with his persevering optimism, should win him renown. 84 THE 1928 INDEX HOWARD THOMAS " TOMMY " IFolyoke, Mass. Holyoke High School Agricultural Education; Class Basketball (1); Varsity Basketball (2. 3); Phi Sigma Kappa. " Blondy " is easily one of our most active men. Playing on our freshman basketball team was a step towards his winning of the varsity " B M B " while still a sophomore. Besides finding time for college and class activities, " Blondy " manages to preside at the head of the cafeteria line. During the early fall he may be seen refereeing the freshman " Fizzie-Ed " soccer games, and he. is not adverse to coaching an occasional Co-Ed soccer or basketball team. He maintains that his title of class politican was undeserved. FRANCES CLARINDA THOMPSON " FRAXKIE " .Amherst, Mass. Amherst High School 1905; Landscape Gardening; Girls ' Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Aggie Revue (2); Index (3); Class Vice-President (1, 2); Class Treasurer (1); Delta Phi Gamma; Kappa Delta. This tall, stately, well-dressed, young lady prides herself on knowing everyone of any im- l)ortance on the M. A. C. Campus. She, herself, is certainly well-known and popular in our class; she is a conspicuous sight on the Campus since she rides around in the famous family Ford, which she drives with reckless ability. " Frankie " has aided the Girls ' Glee Club with her agreeable, mellow voice and has captivated our hearts with her " Fiddle and I " . And above all, she has been an indispensable member of " Ye Inde.x Boarde " . " Frankie " is majoring in Landscape Gardening, but we shouldn ' t be a bit surprised to see her on the stage some day. LEONARD LEWIS THOMPSON " THOMPY " Greenfield, Mass. Greenfield High School 1905; Agricultural Education; Class Football (1); Class Basketball (1); Class Baseball (1); Varsity Baseball (2, 3) ; Senate (3) ; Phi Sigma Kappa. " Mass! Rah! ' Thompy! " With this cheer is ushered in the baseball season, and with the baseball season, " Thompy " . Athlete, student, class officer, and all round good fellow is " Thompy " . He is one of those boys with a dual personality. The picture of bashfulness on our Campus, he is, according to Dame Rumor, a bold Romeo in Greenfield. " Thompy " boasts two unique class titles, having been named the best natured and also the class woman hater. 85 THE 1928 INDEX HENRY BAILEY TRULL " BAIL " Lowell, Mass. Deerfield Academy 1906; Animal Husbandry; Class Football (1); Football (2, 3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. " Bale " is a living example of a good-natured fat man, but he is an exception to the general rule in that he can run. In fact, he is quite a fast man on the football field at least. He has an unwavering quality of friendship which serves to keep in check his jollyness and also gains for him the respect of his classmates. His profound advice has often been helpful to his class in such mat- ters as freshman hazing and the best way to start a rough-house. Jolly, good-natured, and ever ready to take part in the working of a practical joke, he will always make friends for himself. WARREN JOHN TUFTS " BOZO " Jamaica Plain, Mass. Jamaica Plain High School 1906: Poultry; Class Track (1, 2); Class Baseball (1, 2); Baseball (2); Varsity Football (3) ; Kappa Sigma. Another reason why Jamaica Plains has a high reputation at Aggie! This light-hearted chap from " down East " has been steadily making good in athletics as well as in the classroom. As a freshman, he made the class baseball team, and last spring he made the varsity pitching squad. Going out for football for the first time last fall, he was seen galloping around the ends with the aggressiveness of a veteran. " Bozo " makes frequent trips towards the experiment station. Why, we do not know, because he is not majoring in Chemistry. GEORGE SHERLOCK TULLOCK " GEORGE " Bridgewater, Mass. Bridgewater High School 1906; Entomology; Index (3); Q. T. V. The good name which the town of Bridgewater formerly had at M. A. C. received a terrific blow when this jolly youth arrived, but has recovered as time softens our impressions. He has fooled the profs for three years, and holds down a respectable job in the hash-house, pardon, the dining hall. George is a hard worker, and possessed of eminent common sense in regard to all things except women. However, this is such a common weakness that it is easy to forgive anyone for it, especially George, for if you ever need help, he is " Joe Big-Hearted Himself " . 86 THE 1928 INDEX ALDEN PARKER TUTTLE " TUT " Bellingham, Mass. Milford High School 1906; Vegetable Gardening; Class Football (1); Football (2, 3); Class Baseball (1). " Tut " has at least one distinguishing achievement to his credit, and that is his ability to walk on his toes. The Military Department noticed it and endeavored to instruct the unit to march in a similar manner, but their efforts were fruitless. " Tut " is one of our leaders and occasionally presides at the daily meetings of the Ancient and Venerable Order of Scullions. When not in the dining hall, he may be found in his bachelor ' s apartment at Baker Place. " Tut " is game per- sistence personified on the gridiron. WALTER BERNHARDT VAN HALL •VAN " Roslindale, Mass. West Roxbury High School 1906; Dairy; Class Football (1); Class Baseball (1); Maroon Key (-2); Alpha Sigma Phi. To be great, one must be temperamental. " Van " should be great beyond powers of descrip- tion. ' Tis said he once graced the soirees and dances of Simmons with his five feet of Chester- fieldian smoothness, but we rather like to think of him as the extremely confident fraternity league baseball pitcher or the " doubting Thomas " of buU-fests. His eyes (we might say " limpid pools " if we were poetically inclined) have hypnotized many an aggressive waiter into meek submission in the Draper Hall serving line. Anatole France must have had " Van " in mind when he wrote: — " Every creature, however small. Is at the center of the universe. " GEORGE BERNARD VOETSCH " GEORGE " Green field, Mass. Greenfield High School 1907; Landscape Gardening; Six-Man-Rope-Pull (1, 2); Class Basketball (1); Class Base- ball (1); Index (3); Sigma Phi Epsilon. Our most graphic remembrance of George is seeing him squeeze his Herculean neck into a fourteen collar. His most striking accomplishments are: luring an occasional note (if such it is) from a C melody saxaphone, mustering statistics for this book, and dropping high flies in fraternity baseball games. George has no distaste for work, but when it comes to studying, that is where he draws the line. Consequently, he majored in Landscape with the hope that he might learn to make better use of his nights. May his fine-spun golden hair and rippling tremulo laughter always re- main with him; for with his minor shortcomings easily forgotten, we are convinced that the pure gold and lightheartedness of our Teuton friend from Greenfield are rather likable. 87 THE 1928 INDEX EDWIN SEARLES WHITE " ED " Worcester, Mass. South High School 1907; Pomology; Class Baseball (1); Baseball (1); Alpha Gamma Rho. Here is " Joe Military ' himself. Whether he is merely fond of riding, or enamoured with the natty uniform, we are not sure, but he will persist in taking his military seriously. He first brought himself into the hme-light by asking his famous question — " What becomes of the horses in the trenches. " " Ed " , of late, has been reported several times roaming at large around South Hadley. " Ed " is a pomologist, so we dont doubt but that he knows his " apples. " As an aspiring baseball candidate, he surely can " eat up the diamond " when he lets out those extra-length legs of his. EDWIN ARTHUR WILDER " DENNY " Sterling, Mass. Cushing Academy 1906; Agricultural Education; Maroon Key (2); Honor Council (1, 2. 3); Collegian (1, 2, 3); Interfraternity Conference (3); Phi Sigma Kappa. It is a sad moment in the life of many a freshman Co-Ed. when she first learns that " Denny " is not, after all, the Dean of Women. But, " a man ' s a man for athat, " and " Denny " finds plenty of time for numerous activities. His level head and business-like manner have made him a val- uable member of class and college committees. Indeed, we may rightfully feel proud that such a worthy Massachusetts -Aggie man can be claimed by " 28. FLORENCE DOROTHEA WILLIAMS East Norton, Mass. " House in the Pines " School 1907; Agricultural Education; Girls " Glee Club (1, 2, 3); Delta Phi Gamma. " Bill " " is the prize-winning horsewoman of the Abbey and is also a great hiker. It is rumored that she is another girl who majors in Home Economics with a purpose. " Dot ' " is surely a lot of fun. She is a member of the Glee Club, and has such enlivening solo parts as " See the Little Fly upon the Wall " . Rural life, such as is found in " " The House in the Pines ' , is said to be one of her strong points, while we understand that, as a mountain-climber, " Bill " " is a regular deer (dear). €x=l928 Agambar, Arnold W.

Avery T T ISTORIES are a bother, especially if you have to write one, and the History - ■- ■ of the Class of 1929 proves to be no exception to the rule. What must be will be,, and so with the above preface begins the history of the present sophomores. It is two years since we came up the Campus walks, as green a group of fresh- men as any sophomore class could ask for. Somehow, we managed to live through the year with some degree of success, for we had several victories to our credit, — the sixty-man rope pull, razoo night, and the football game, to counter- balance the other contests we lost. The biggest and most exciting event of the year, the banquet scrap, will never be forgotten by our class, particularly those men who came through the worse for wear. Before we realized it, the year was over, and we faced a new adversary, the Class of 1930, who decided that the Aggie Pond needed dredging, and took it upon itself to use us as shovels. We lost the six-man rope pull, also, before we decided it was our turn. Then we won the foot- ball and basketball games, and the razoo events before the nightshirt parade. So ends the history of our first two years, in which our successes and failures are indiscriminately mixed. Whether we won or whether we lost doesn ' t matter, for the game ' s the thing, and always will be to the Class of 1929. Blanche D.

Crane Jfresiftman Clasisi ftisitorp ON September 13, 1926, a new group of freshmen, ' 210 strong, could be seen wandering about the M. A. C. Campus. To all appearances, we were a subdued and submissive group of neophytes, although quite capable of being a noisy group, as the inhabitants of the Abbey can testify. We looked with certain anxiety upon our " superiors " , the sophomores, and more than one freshman ' s heart ran more smoothly when he learned that " pond parties " had been abolished. We survived the first week of college life without any mishaps, and we all looked forward to class activities, in which we hoped to prove our worth. We were first challenged to a sixty-man rope pull, and we succeeded in pull- ing the sophs through the water and mud. We next were victorious in the six- man rope pull. Our .spirits were high at that time, for we had not met defeat. Razoo night soon came, and here the sophomores came to the front and won a de- cided triumph. Their joy was not long-lived, however, for that same night we succeeded in defeating them in the nightshirt parade, a deed that had not been accomplished by freshmen for almost twenty years. The sophs had some satis- faction in knowing that there were very few whole nightshirts that came out of the scrap. Our rivals won the interclass sports, defeating us in both football and basket- ball. The honors are now about evenly divided, and we are eagerly looking for- ward to the banquet scrap. Victory in this contest will enable us to remove the decoration that adorns every neophyte ' s head, the " frosh cap " . We hope that in time to com e we shall be able to stand the tests and that we can be called typical Aggie men with the true Aggie spirit. KENDALL B.

C. ' T O any student of plant life, our campus furnishes a very remarkably well - ' - equipped laboratory. This is especially true of the woody plants — trees, shrubs and vines — used in the decorative plantings about the campus grounds. These plants are of extreme interest, alike to the one interested in their botanical characteristics; to the one whose interest lies mainly in their possibilities as ex- cellent subjects for grounds ornamentation; and to those of us not trained in plant lore, but who derive pleasure from seeing, being surrounded by, and living in the numberless small landscape scenes, dotted about the campus, which go to make up the whole picture. Probably few persons are aware that there are, on the campus, over four hundred different species and varieties of these ornamental plants — a splendid number when one considers the size of the campus. About fifty of these are rep- resented in those cone-bearing evergreens which give the strong strokes of color to the winter picture, represented chiefly by the stately Norway spruce, several species of pine, and many species of Retinospora and cedar. The broad-leaf evergreens, exemplified in the rhododendrons and mountain laurel comprise about half a score other varieties. The great body of the collection, however, is composed of those plants which give us the body color of the picture in its summer beauty, but in winter present silhouettes of graceful leafless branches — the deciduous plants. There are nearly one hundred and fifty trees, exhibiting the many sizes, shapes and forms which lend themselves to artistic settings and combinations. One hundred and seventy- five shrubs, equally varied in form and habit of growth, make up the more minute details of the many picture compositions. Many of these are especially and ex- ceptionally beautiful in spring or summer at their blossoming time. Many, also, are especially attractive again in the autumn because of the abundance of highly colored fruits with which they are laden. While vines, from the nature of their growth, must necessarily occupy a minor position in any decorative planting, yet their value for a particular place in the picture is equal to that of any other group in its own particular place. The twenty sorts to be found on the campus are of such varied habits of growth, foliage, flowers and fruit as to permit of all possible uses for which vines are planted. Imagine the waiting-station without its covering of graceful tendril-like stems, or the cold, bare walls of Clark, AVilder and the Library if deprived of their robes and draperies of green foliage. The collection of plants is cosmopolitan. Just as the student body is made up of representatives from different sections of our state and from other states, with a very marked percentage coming from foreign lands, so our campus has received by far the greater number of its permanent residents from our native material, but this is materially supported by many importations from remote regions, even from far away foreign lands. A statistical comparison of their 111 origins brings out some interesting and surprising facts. Approximately forty- two per cent of the plants are indigenous to the United States. The wonder is that this number isn ' t greater. Twenty-three per cent are native to our imme- diate vicinity. Of this latter group, a few on the campus are probably of the original native growth, preserved and protected in the development of the campus, l)ut the greater portion have been brought in from the surrounding hills and val- leys and, with a definite purpose in view, worked into the plans and plantings of the campus. These are the plants that contribute so largely to the " natural " effect of the campus plantings and which connect and tie it up with the adjacent country. The campus blends with its surroundings. No line separates them. The relatively large number of foreign plants is rather surprising. Of these, fourteen per cent are native to Europe or to that immediate region, and comprise some of our earliest introductions into this country, and are among the most familiar of our plants. That proportion seems small when one considers that throughout its history our region has drawn most of its foreign population from Europe, and, at the same time, the greater part of our commerce has been with European countries. One might reasonably expect a comparable importation of plant varieties from these countries. The surprise is that thirty per cent of our ornamentals are native to eastern Asia — ten per cent being exclusively Japanese. This relatively high number of eastern Asiatic plants emphasizes the fact that plants of that region find conditions in New England quite suited to their perfect establishment. This high per- centage no doubt is due, also, to some extent, to the early importations of plants from Japan bj ' President Clark and Dr. Brooks. It is noteworthy that many of these plants brought in by these gentlemen were the very first of their kinds to be introduced into America. The Umbrella pine. Cork-tree and Yama cherry in the Rhododendron Garden and the Actinidia, Climbing hydrangea and Japanese Fringetree on the Clark estate are thriving, healthy specimens of those first immi- grants. It is to be doubted if another campus can show as varied an assortment of species and at the same time have them arranged in more happy composition than here at M. A. C. Specimens from round the world are brought together here and established in perfect harmony. CHARLES H. THOMPSON 112 Ernest G. McVey Neil C. Robinson Raymond G. Griffin . Edwin J. Haertl George F.

TOBY in Sunderland, together with adjoining land to the north and ■ ' -- ' ■ east totaling 755 acres, was secured by the Massachusetts Agricultural College in 1916 to serve as a laboratory for college instruction in forestry and to exemplify, for all who might be interested, the practical application of forestry principles. Within the forest boundaries are to be found high, dry ridges, cool ravines, both warm and cool hillsides, sandy flats, and swampy bottomland. Owing to this marked variety of soil and topography, and owing also to its loca- tion in the intermediate zone between the northern and sprout hardwood regions, the forest contains a strikingly wide representation of forest types. In close proximity there are stands of red and rock oak, of birch, beech, and maple, of white oak and hickory, of hemlock, of white pine, of ash and basswood, and of swamp maple and elm. The forest is representative of Massachusetts condi- tions also in the fact that it is nearly all second growth following the abandonment of worn-out plough-land and pasture. The further fact that there is a steady demand from neighboring markets for all its products rounds out an ideal group of qualifications for a demonstration forest. The Forestry Department of the College is so managing the area as to main- tain there a reservoir of timber, from which only as much is taken periodically as can be replaced by mormal growth. Blank spaces are being planted to the most desirable native or imported species, and the stands already present are weeded, thinned, protected, and finally harvested in such a way as to bring on a new crop to replace th e old. Among the special problems for which solutions are now being sought on the Mountain are the discovery of the best species to introduce in substitution for the disappearing chestnut as a post and pole tree, and the deter- mination of the best methods of growing clear lumber suitable for house-building. In these and other investigations, the Forest is being utilized as a home experi- mental-ground by the Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, a branch of the U. S. Forest Service with headquarters at the College. It is to be expected that as years go by, the Mt. Toby Forest will not only show how timber may be grown as a continuous and profitable crop, but will also show how a public forest may serve the surrounding community by providing winter work for farmers, by furnishing a constant supply of fuel and logs, and by affording all the while a resource for those who like to be in the woods. The lookout-tower on the summit, the faculty log cabin, the two new cabins being built this year, the many miles of trails, are attractive features which suggest that the development of the Forest in technical investigation will be paralleled by an equally important development in recreational use.

However, on account of accidents, the Indoor Track Meet at Worcester Tech was the only victory of the season. The first meet was a dual relay race with B. U. Their team was composed entirely of veterans, and they won. The following week at the B. A. A. Games, Bates won its sixth consecutive relay at these games by defeating Amherst and M. A. C. Our relay teams seem ill-fated in that during the last two years, some one of the runners has accidently fallen, nullifying chances of winning which were very favorable. The annual winter track meet with W. P. I. at Worcester was a decided vic- tory for M. A. C, the Agates winning the contest by a score of 40 to 28. In this meet the team took four firsts and tied for another. Tucker made a new college record in the high jump, going over the bar at 5 feet, 8 inches. The season closed with the Invitation Meet given by the 104th Infantry at Springfield. The squad was considerably weakened by the " flu " epidemic, and as a result, but few men were entered. Schappelle was the only man to come through, winning fourth place in the 1000-yard run. J. EMERSON GREENAWAY 1926 Winter tack anii 3ReIap Reason Relay B. U. M. A. C. Triangular Relay Amherst Bates M.

Swan ' 27 157 1926 Spring tKrack easion TN the first meet of the season, the 1926 Spring Track Team won from Tufts in - ' - an exceedingly close meet, the third annual encounter between the two rivals, by a score of 64 2-3 to 61 1-3. This was a meet which was hotly contested throughout. The M. A. C. team won eight firsts out of a possible fourteen. The running events were the decisive factors, furnishing the winning points. In the next dual meet of the season, Middlebury proved to be the winner, leading with 77 2-3 points to our 57 1-3. This meet would have been more evenly balanced had not the Middlebury team insisted in having the hammer throw, an event not attempted at this college. Their men succeeded in lowering several of their records. Norwich, in the third dual meet, proved to be an easy victim, falling under a score of 69 to 47. This is the fourth successive victory over the Cadets. Aided by high winds, some very fine times were made. Tucker made a new college record of 10 feet, 7 inches in the pole vault, and also equalled his former record of ;5 feet, 8 inches in the high jump. At the Eastern Intercollegiate Meet held at Worcester, two records were broken, one a college record for the 880-yard run, this being lowered by Schappelle to 3 3-5 seconds, and the other, the Eastern record in the broad jump, was claimed by Captain Sniffen by virtue of a record jump of 22 feet, 5 inches. The Aggie team was tied for fourth place with W. P. I. Snifl ' en was the only man to score at the N. E. I. C. A. A. Meet this year. He took first place in the broad jump, making a new college record of 22 feet, 8 1-4 inches. He is the first man to be a New England Intercollegiate champion that M. A. C. has ever had. He has also been the only Aggie entrant to score at this meet for the past three years. The New Hampshire team was too strong for the M. A. C. aggregation, and as a result won the last meet of the season with an 87 to 39 score. Some very fast times were made, for both dashes were run ofl in less than the record time of Mass. Aggie. The work of Captain Sniffen in his last meet for Aggie was especially noteworthy. In his last jump he again set up a new record in the broad jump, covering 23 feet, 1 1-8 inches, a record which will probably stand for years tc come. Of the members of the Class of 1926, three hold college records; Tucker holds botli the high jump and pole vault records; Thurlow holds the mark for the discus; while Sniffen holds that for the broad jump, the 220-yard dash, and shares the honor for the 100-yard dash, as well as holding the Eastern Intercollegiate record for the broad jump. In the last three years. Captain Sniffen has consistently been the high scorer on the squad, amassing a total of 194 points. J. EMERSON GREENAWAY 158 1926 Spring racfe Session Tufts at M. A. C.

With a team made up of five veteran runners, Aggie won the five straight dual meets, defeating each member of the " Little Three " as well as Tufts and Boston University. The season started with a meet with Tufts on the home course, which resulted in a victory for M. A. C, 26-33. Snell ' s unsuccessful fight to take first place from Lester of Tvifts was the feature of this race, which was run in the fast time of 27:2 2 5. The defeat of AVilliams at Williamstown by a score of 19-39 was the next item. " Ducky " Swan led the field, winning first place in moderately fast time. This was the first time in the history of Williams College that their cross country team had ever been defeated on their home course. The following meet was with Wesleyan at M. A. C. The visiting team, which later won the " Little Three " championship, was defeated by Aggie, 24-33. This race was the fastest one on the home course this season, 27:2. Captain Newton of Wesleyan broke the tape and was closely followed by Preston. Amherst was next on the schedule, and was defeated on their home course by a perfect score when the M. A. C. team broke the tape as a unit. After this race, the team ran back to the Drill Hall from the Golf Links. This was the third member of the " Little Three " which our team defeated this season. The next race, with Boston LTniversity, was the closest of the season. After trailing Lockhart of B. U. over the Franklin Park course most of the run, " Ducky " Swan forged ahead in the last mile, breaking the tape for his third first place this season. The various places were hotly contested, as is shown by the score, 26-29. The harriers again ran the Franklin Park course the following week at the New England Intercollegiate meet in which they took seventh place. Swan and Captain Crooks, the first of our men to place, took 19th and 20th places respec- tively. This season ' s club has hung up an enviable record, both in the times of the races and in the five straight dual victories, including the second successive defeat of Williams. The teamwork characteristic of last year ' s squad was still evident, but the individual placings have moved up, as is shown by Swan ' s first places in three out of five races, and the taking of second in the remaining two duals. It may easily be said that this has been the best season Aggie has had for many years. FRANK C. STRATTON 161 1926 pageball tam John B. Temple ' 26 AVilliam L. Dole ' 27 Loren E. Ball ' 21 John B.

Richards 162 )t 1926 pa£ietjall easion THE 1926 baseball team went through a disheartening season. They started poorly and they never really recovered, although they developed a spirit to win shortly after the middle of the season which proved most sweetly effective when the Agates went to Springfield. They won four out of sixteen games, and they played both extremely good baseball and the exact opposite. To those of us who were " on the inside " , the real fault lay in the fact that the team lacked con- fidence in itself. By the time they had plastered Wesleyan for seven innings, they had learned how it felt, and with the exception of two unfortunate innings at the end of the Middletown struggle, the team functioned as a team and a gang of fighters for the remainder of the year. Hits were more frequent and en- thusiasm was more feverish. The season opened comparatively early (April 17th) at Williamstown. The scorebook contains the following comment: " Weather — High wind, Min- imum temperature, 40°F. " The Agates were dropped, 9 to 0, by Bok, a green twirler for Williams. The Berkshire batters gleaned seven hits from Nash and Davenport, three of which were doubles. The x gates, on the other hand, had to be satisfied with a single from Moberg ' s bat. Tufts invaded the Aggie campus on the following Saturday, and clinched a 17 to 2 victory. The Tufts offense opened up early, and Davenport was forced to retire before the first putout of the game and after two runs had been scored. The Agates crashed through with six hits, but this array hardly stacked up against the Medfordites ' nineteen clouts for thirty-one total bases. The Agates touched the outlook with a bit of a glow when they outscored Worcester Tech in a loosely played clash. Nash pitched the whole game against Robinson. Nash allowed eight hits while " Red " Ball ' s charges crashed out fif- teen wallops, including three doubles and Rice ' s triple. However, the Agates took a slump when they met Wesleyan on home ter- ritory on High School Day and they were downed 9 to 3, in spite of nine hits to twelve. The feature of the day was a home run by Wielland of Wesleyan, one of the longest on Alumni Field in recent years. In the seventh and eighth innings, the Middletown team tallied eight times from seven hits and three errors. The Agates showed their stuff in the fourth when they opened up with a pair of hits by Haertl and Temple. Haertl scored on a pitcher ' s error and Temple was driven in by succeeding bingles. The Dartmouth trip resulted in a 13 to 1 defeat for Massachusetts. The Green ' s heavy hitters romped, although Davenport pitched one of the best games of his collegiate career. Lane was able to hold the Aggie batters to four scattered bingles. 168 The Bowdoin game was a brilliant spot in this early season slump. In the fourth round the entire Aggie team appeared at the plate, and five runs were scored as the result of a double, a single, two walks, and three errors. To cap the climax, four tallies came in the next session from two passes and four safe hits. The Maine team used two pitchers, one of which was Captain Robinson. On their trip to Schenectady, the Agates met with more hard luck, for the Unionites found Nash for three doubles, a trio of triples, and a long home run drive; result, a 10 to 2 defeat. The trip to Lowell and Dover proved to be another disastrous journey, for Lowell downed the Maroon and White in a ragged game, and New Hampshire trampled all over the travellers with 22 hits. However, it was in this pounding that the Agates found a new candidate for the mound, in Captain Johnny Temple. This was indeed a find, for Nash was bothered by a strained muscle which troubled him for the remainder of the season. At Wesleyan, the Agates really found themselves for the first time. In the second, they tallied twice, and the home team retaliated with three runs. But the fighting spirit had been aroused so that when the score was 5 to 3 against them in the sixth, they came back with three runs followed by another in the seventh. But Dame Fortune was as yet somewhat of a stranger, so that an eruption in the final innings heaved Wesleyan to the top. The next game was a real battle. The Sabrinas, on home territory, finally came out on top, 4 to 3, although the issue was undecided until the end of the ninth inning. The Agates pelted the reputed Woodruff for six hits, while Nash allowed only seven in his turn. Four sacrifices on either side were also factors in the scoring. The Agates scored first with one run in the fourth; Amherst scored once in the seventh; and both teams drove in a pair of counters in the eighth. However, in the last half of the ninth, Walt Parker socked out a three- bagger and his brother followed with a long sacrifice fly. The entire outfit worked to perfection at Middlebury, the following Friday. Nash ' s masterful twirling and the phenomenal work of the infield kept the Panthers hitless for eight innings, in spite of a very fast diamond. On the other hand, the i .gates connected for eight hits, which were well bunched for the six runs which came in. Although the score stood against them the following day, the Agates were not as despondent as in earlier games, for they had figured in one of the best games played at Burlington. In the first place, the score book showed a zero at the foot of the error column. They had won four hits from Fogg, while the Vermonters had hit safely from Temple only six times. As we have intimated before, the Springfield game was the most gratifying one of the season. Before the Springfield Commencement crowd, the Agates looped out for a 3 to 1 victory. The Agates outhit their rivals by only one bingle, 164 but worked as a unified machine. One run came late in the game when Griffin straightened out a drive for four bases. Springfield hit hard and heavy but the infield and the outfield were ever on their toes. Moriarty at short made seven putouts, and Haertl is credited with five assists and three putouts. The Conn. Aggie game was a hard fought tussle, but on the whole a colorless affair. Connecicut made eleven hits to the Bay Staters ' seven, so that it may be seen that there was much stickwork. A batting rally in the eighth won for Connecticut. The Commencement game proved to be a disappointment to the M. A. C. alumni, but even in a 5 to 1 defeat, the fighting spirit persisted. Woodruff fanned eleven men and walked but two. The Agates played tight ball, however, for there were no blowups. Two of Amherst ' s runs resulted from Franzen ' s circuit clout in the fifth. On the whole, the season was a poor one from the standing of scores; but it marked the evolution of a gang of inexperienced players who will undoubtedly show their year ' s work in the 1927 team. Only two seniors were on the team reg- ularly, Captain Temple and Moberg. Davenport also pitched several games and Richards was ever an extra man for the outfield. WILLIAM L.

Along with the opening of the season came the announcement that Captain " Joe " Hilyard was ineligible and therefore lost to the team. That left three letter men to form the nucleus of the team that was to represent Aggie. " Gerry " Amstein, one of the three letter men, was appointed acting-captain and later in the season was unanimously elected permanent captain. From an unseasoned squad of men, a team had to be built, and needless to say, it was a difficult task to convert green, inexperienced material into a first-class team. When the Aggie team lined up against Bates in the opening contest, many new faces were noticed. Sophomores held down the positions at right end, center, left end, quarterback, and halfback. Juniors were at fullback and substitutes at left end and halfback positions. Seniors were at both tackle and guard posi- tions and as substitutes in the backfield. Alumni, students, and others interested in M. A. C. waited for the opening whistle with confidence and yet with un- certainty. What would the Aggie team do? It was at the start of a difficult schedule and they were up against a veteran team of ten letter-men. The game ended with the score 2-0 in favor of Bates. Aggies ' best groundgainer was the forward pass attack, which worked quite well. A penalty which forced us nearly back to our own goal line and poor ball handling resulted in a safety which gave Bates the 2 points and the game. The following week found Connecticut Aggies on Alumni field, and they left carrying with them the football used, signifying a 13-6 victory. The visitors were stopped twice on the five-yard line. The Connecticut Aggies used the aerial attack considerably, and it resulted in their first touchdown and was instrumental in the second score. Our score was due to a forward pass, also. For M. A. C, the passing by Cox and Johnson was quite noticeable, as the passes were fast, well-timed, and accurate. Black, a senior, got into this game for a few minutes 167 in order to limber up from a pre-season injury. As he had played on the 192.5 team, his appearance marked the addition of another veteran to the line-up. The next game was played in Williamstown with Williams and resulted in a 20 to defeat for Aggie. Almost immediately after the start of the game, two touchdowns were scored by Williams. However, the Aggie team pulled itself together, and a field goal was the only additional score for the first half. A similar score was the only tally made in the second half. Early in the game Johnson picked up the ball after a fumble and ran 3.5 yards before tackled. This tackle, however, put him out of the game with an injured ankle. This paved the way for Tuft ' s entrance, and considerable credit should be given this substitute for his work. He had never worn a uniform before the start of the season, but he played through three periods of this game and showed coolness, quick thinking, and considerable ability in both punting and running. Aggies " one victory of the season came the following week when W. P. I. was defeated, 6 to 0. The score resulted from a strong running attack, and the ball was finally carried across the line by Mahoney. Cartwright added the extra point. Worcester ' s attack in the persons of Guidi and Converse was effectively stopped. The poor passing by the Aggies was compensated for by the running of Tufts and Mahoney and the line bucking by Cook. With increased confidence the Agates next played Amherst, the " Little Three " champs. We were defeated, however, 21 to 7. Forward passes gave Amherst two of her scores, and a broken field run produced the other. The recovery of a fumble by Murdough, an alert lineman who came down under a punt, gave Aggie her touchdown. Springfield College was the next team met by the Agates and again we lost, 9 to 0. A field goal in the second period was the only score until the last minute of play when a touchdown was finally pushed over. The Aggie team carried the ball a considerable distance, but seemed to lack the punch to put the ball across the line. As Cox was not in the best of condition, Quinn took his place at quarter- back and called the plays very effectively. Two weeks after this defeat the team journeyed to Tufts for the final game of the season. This also resulted in a loss, 45 to 13, although the Aggie team played the best game of the season. Soon after the start of the second half, the scene was pretty black as Tufts had made several long runs for touchdowns. With the Jumbos far in the lead, the Agates continued to fight, and to the surprise of those who did not know the Aggie team, put 13 points in the Aggie column. It was a team that knew that in spite of the score it was not licked and played as hard as possible until the final whistle. In conclusion, the fact remains that the season was a disastrous one from the point of view of victories. However unsuccessful it was, several men found themselves, which is in itself an accomplishment of merit. The ' 26 team always 168 presented a line-up of eleven youngsters " who never curled under " . As a sum- mary of the season I like to think of the 1926 football team as Theodore Roosevelt thought of " The Man Who Counts. " " It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold, timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Nash 170 1927 easion NINETEEN Twenty-seven produced an Aggie hockey team typical of the past several years; a hard-fighting, clean-playing group of men, who didn ' t win all their games — didn ' t win a majority of games — but who never quit playing until the final signal, and who gave their best to the sport. The season started before the Christmas recess with theoretical work and conditioning exercises, so that when the call for candidates was issued in the latter part of December, those who responded were able to start off at a good pace in actual practice. Prospects seemed good for 1927, with several reliable substitutes from the 1926 club as well as three letter men, Abrahamson, Frese, and Captain Forest. The three men who had already won letters had no difficulty in retaining their established positions, and after some shifting about of candidates for the re- maining places, Farwell, Galanie and Swan were chosen to complete the sextet. This combination provided the regular line-up throughout the season. Of the other candidates, perhaps the most likely were Cook, Lane and Elliot, juniors, and Rudquist and Nash, sophomores. It is a tribute to the teamwork displayed to say that no particular star might have been selected; nevertheless, the names of Forest and Galanie, who played at center and goal, respectively, deserve mention. The first and last games played were the only ones from which M. A. C. emerged in the lead. The first game, that with Bates at M. A. C. was won by a two to one score. Swan scored first for the " Agates " ; then Captain Lane of the Bates team shot the puck into the net. The contest stormed back and forth until the second overtime period, when " Joe " Forest broke through the Bates defense and scored the winning goal. The second meeting of the season was with Hamilton College at Clinton, New York. Here the score of the previous game was reversed, and Hamilton won, two to one. Swan scored the lone goal for the Maroon and White team. In this game Forest, the M. A. C. captain, met with his second accident of the season, and was unable to participate in the next three contests. The Amherst College team won the third game of the year, one to nothing. Captain Cameron of Amherst made the single score in the first period. Penalties for roughness were so numerous that for a brief time Amherst had but one man other than the goaltender on the ice. The single tally was scored a moment after the Aggie goal-tender had been struck on the head with a hockey stick. 171 Next on the list was a series of two games in the wilds of Maine. The team let Amherst with the temperature at ten degrees below zero, and was more or less agreeably surprised to find the weather so warm on the journey that the Colby game was played with nearly an inch of water on the ice. As it was almost im- possible to pass or shoot the puck, Abrahamson and Farwell, on the defense, did valiant work in holding the Colby score down to two counters. Bates was played to a scoreless tie at Lewiston in a lively contest which extended to two overtime periods. The final games of the year were played in Vermont against Middlebury College and the University of Vermont. Middlebury offered the keenest opposi- tion of the year, and although the game was never one-sided, Galanie, at goal for M. A. C, was forced to a feature performance to prevent a higher total in Middle- bury ' s favor. Aggie won a victory from the University of Vermont at Burlington in zero weather. This game was marked by the teamwork of the Bay Staters, and both Frese and Cook made their first credits of the season in the score book. The early advent of spring weather put an end to other hockey plans, and the remaining games, all to have been played in Amherst, were cancelled. Much is looked for from the 1928 team, with five first-string players eligible, three of them letter men of two years ' standing, and the spirit and teamwork of the 1927 outfit should go far toward gaining a high percentage of games won.

Tompkins 174 1927 pas feetball ea on TT has been the custom for the last number of years to give the varsity basket- - ' - ball team some fitting title. Usually such a title evolves from the fertile mind of the Coach, " Kid " Gore, but this year the team owes its name to a certain newspaper reporter who dubbed it " The Opportunists " . The members of this year ' s varsity certainly deserve such a title because they have grasped about every opportunity that came their way. At the beginning of the season the prospects were not very bright. The gap left by the graduation of the " Three Musketeers " Temple, Jones, and Smiley was a diiBcult one to fill ; nevertheless, " Roly " Reed, " Blondy " Thomas, " Squash " McEwen, and " Line " Murdough did an excellent job. Two veterans from last year ' s quintet, Captain Partenheimer and " Ray " Griffin, comprised the rest of the varsity team. Both of these men exceeded last year ' s form. Scoring honors go to " Ray " Griffin and " Blondy " Thomas, but we shall never forget " Part ' s " tall figure following in under the basket, or " Roly ' s " popping them from the side court, or even " Squash ' s " cutting for the basket and dropping in an occasional one. The varsity introduced a new type of play this year in a form of " stalling " offense which figured quite effectively in many of the victories. The season opened on the Drill Hall floor with a triumph over Clark to the tune of 20 to 10. At half time the score was even, but the Agates staged a terrific scoring punch in the next session. West Point was our next rival, but after a long, tedious journey coupled with a state of mind bordering close to stage fright, the team succumbed by a score of 36 to 24, the largest score rolled up against the " Opportunists " during the season. After the upset at West Point, the ' team took on Boston University, and in a fast contest defeated the Terriers, 19 to 12. The next day the team traveled to Boston and played Northeastern at the Y. M. C. A. Ac- cording to the papers, it was one of the best teams seen on the " Y " floor that defeated Northeastern to the tune of 33 to 17. The next week-end was spent in traveling up to Orono, Maine, where the varsity met its second defeat at the hands of the University of Maine, the game going over into an overtime period. The final score was 25 to 29. In the next contest, the Agates kept their record on the Drill Hall floor clean by decisively overcoming Williams, 21 to 16. The visitors were leading at half time, 6 to 5, but to no avail. Trinity was the next victim to fall before the " Opportunists " , but only after giving the Aggies a good fright. The count was 12 to 2 in Trinity ' s favor at the end of the first half, but the M. A. C. team staged one of the greatest comebacks in the history of Aggie athletics and gleaned 23 points to their oppon- ents ' 5 in the closing session. W. P. I. next gave the varsity a good run for their money, and it was only after a five-minute overtime period that Aggie was able to call the game a victory by the close score of 24 to 17. 175 Following the W. P. I. game the varsity dropped three games in a row, but the scores indicate that they were games hotly contested. The first of these de- feats was at the hands of Wesleyan in Middletown to the tune of 20 to 16. New Hampshire ' s sturdy outfit was forced to the limit to win the game on their home court, 23 to 18. The third contest was dropped to Middlebury by a 23 to 18 count. The " Opportunists " were leading at half time by two points, but sensa- tional shooting by Sorenson and Franzoni put the Panthers ahead. The most outstanding accomplishment of the year was the defeat of Vermont. In this game the members of the varsity with a great exhibition of headwork and individual brilliancy defeated a team that was already credited with the mythical New England Championship. The season closed with a 31 to 23 victory over our old rival. Tufts. The first half of this game was one of the fastest seen on the Drill Hall surface this year. The Agates reigned supreme with a clever demon- stration of cutting, passing and shooting in the first half, and rolled up 17 points to the visitors ' 2. The basketball season this year has been a success as far as accomplishment is concerned, because with eight victories and five defeats the Aggie record of good hoop teams still stands unimpaired. The passing of the 1927 team means the passing of two veterans. Captain Merrill Partenheimer and Raymond Griffin. The loss of these two stellar men will be keenly felt, but " The old order changeth, yielding place to new. " EDWIN J. HAERTL 1927 cafion M.A.C. Opp January 8 Clark at M. A.

IF ONE CONSIDERS the various departments of the College which are doing notable work, it is impossible to overlook the Military Department, for the R. O. T. C. here at M. A. C. is one of which we can justly be proud. We believe that the Military Department is today more efficient, more respected, more successful in every way than ever before. Military training at M. A. C. began with the founding of the College in 1867. Professor Goodell, who afterward became president of the College, was the first instructor. In 1870 the national government detailed an army officer, Captain H. E. Alvord, to take charge of military training here. During the administration of Captain Alvord, an artillery unit was maintained, but with the coming of other officers, the artillery drill was replaced by infantry. During the World War an S. A. T. C. unit was maintained at the College; this was reorgan- ized by Colonel Walker in 1919, and a cavalry unit was established. The cavalry stable which was erected at that time burned down during the summer of 1925, and a new and better one has replaced it. Since the introduction of cavalry drill, there has been a steadily increasing interest in military training at M. A. C, and although the fact that it is required will probably prevent it from ever being particularly attractive to the two lower classes, its growing popularity is evidenced by the large number of students who elect the advanced course. This year, under the command of Major N. Butler Briscoe, who succeeded Major Kobbe last year, aided by Captain Edwin M. Sumner, also a newcomer, and Captain Dwight Hughes, Jr., who has been at M. A. C. since 192 ' ' 2, the military unit has achieved a greater measure of success than ever before. One of the requirements of the advanced course is six weeks attendance at camp during the summer vacation between the junior and senior years. This had always been a deterrent to those who wished to elect the advanced work until two years ago, when an innovation was introduced in having the cadets ride to and from camp at Fort Ethan Allen. This makes it possible for the men to get val- uable training through actual experience, while at the same time it makes the trip much more enjoyable for those who take it. Another innovation in the advanced military work is the " night ride " for the seniors, which was tried out for the first time last spring, and which proved an unqualified success. In this contest, each man rode a certain number of miles, at night, following a specific course and complying with certain rules. It was a competitive test, designed to test the ability of the cadets to make practical use of the theoretical instruction which they had received. In addition to these features of the work in military here at M. A. C, the unit gives an exhibition drill for the entertainment of visitors on the annual 181 High School Day. The Military Department also has charge of the annual Amherst Horse Show, which is always an interesting event. And so, in spite of the fact that, as underclassmen drilling on some torrid June day or undergoing inspection, we have all bewailed our fate in being obliged to take Military, we must admit that the Military Department is an important and valuable asset to the College.

The concert schedule was unusually full and attractive with concerts in many new and comparatively large towns. The audiences played before were very appreciative of the fine programs presented, which interest well rewarded the members for their time and effort spent in prep- aration. The program differed from that of other years in that its greatest strength lay in its special numbers rather than in the selections rendered by the entire Glee Club. We were fortunate in having possibly the best quartet ever to represent the Musical Clubs. In Don C. Tiffany and Jester J. Hairston, two members of the quartet, the Clubs had two soloists with a talent which could be classed as professional. Hans Baumgartner presented a yodeling act which was always received with much applause because of the general excellence of the act and also on account of the ever-ready humor of Mr. Baumgartner. " Don " Savage and his " Whatsit " , or as more familiarly known, his " musical cigar box cello " , added an amusing new feature to the program, both in the capacity of a humorous skit and as a musical number of unquestionable excellence. " Don " and his accompanist, " Red " Marsh, aroused considerable favorable com- ment wherever they appeared. " Romeo and JuUet " , presented by Ernest G. McVey and Jester J. Hairston, (dressed for their parts), was perhaps the most strikingly humorous portion of the entire program. This duet was well carried out, both from a dramatic and a musical standpoint. " Dutch " Ansell also performed with his usual brand of clog and fancy dancing which seems to grow in popularity each year. When we say that the special numbers of the program composed its chief strength, we do not mean to insinuate that the Glee Club itself was weak. On the contrary, it well showed the results of the untiring efforts rendered in its behalf by Mrs. Arthur B. Beaumont, coach, and Clarence H. Parsons, leader, both of whom deserve much credit for their work. They were well rewarded by the re- ception the Glee Club received when it appeared at the Social Union Concert in Bowker Auditorium. Dancing to the music furnished by the Musical Club Orchestra always fol- lowed the concerts. In closing, a word of commendation should be given to them for their willing and efficient work, with special credit to their leader, Leslie R. Smith, Jr. LEWIS H.

The next year the club was accepted as an academic activity and has been under the jurisdiction of the Academics Activities Board for two years. Ruth Davison ' 27 has been manager of the club for the two years in which it has existed, and recognition of the hard work she has put in and the splendid results she has achieved for the organization are due her. Miriam Huss ' 29 has been leader of the club for the past season. Mrs. Arthur B. Beaumont, coach of the club, has spent a great deal of extra time in training the various groups. The personnel of the Girls ' Glee Club is made up of about twenty-five girls from the four classes; the sophomores make up the largest group in the organ- ization. The club has had a very strenuous schedule this year. Over ten concerts have been given, and the season has been acclaimed even more successful than that of last year. The programs presented, with slight variations, have been the same for each concert. They have consisted of college songs and three parts composed of six selections by the entire group and two numbers by the double trio and the quartet. Solos have been rendered by Josephine Panzica and Frances Thompson, both juniors. The readings given by Dorothea Williams ' 28 and Margaret Donovan ' 30 and the dancing by Josephine Panzica have aided in giving variety to the programs. " The Big Brown Bear " sung by the double trio has been ad- judged " the hit of every program. " The schedule for the season is as follows. January 14 ........ .

C. 190 thatinq, ALTHOUGH not successful in equalling last year ' s record, when only one con- test was lost, the M. A. C. debating team may well consider the results of its efforts as far from unsuccessful. Starting under discouraging circumstances, with only one member of last year ' s team remaining, and a small number of candidates from which to choose the remaining members, the team was defeated in the opening contest with George Washington University by a decision of 3-0. The visitors exhibited a high degree of skill in the forensic art, which, coupled with the inexperience of the M. A. C. aggregation, was responsible for this result. The next two contests, with the University of Vermont and Middlebury, also resulted in defeats, but in each case by a 2-1 decision. The work of the team in both of these debates showed much improvement, and hopes were entertained of closing the season with a victory. These hopes were realized in the final contest with Colby, when the M. A. C. team rose to its greatest heights of eloquence, and so clearly demon- strated its superiority that it received a 3-0 decision from the judges. Although only one of the four debates resulted in an Aggie victory, the sum of the votes of the judges, five for, and seven against, is a much better indication of the ability of the team, which really did remarkably well, in view of the diffi- culties which had to be faced. Not alone to the members of the team, however, is due the credit for their success. No small share should go to Professor Prince, who has coached the M. A. C. debating teams for a number of years past, and who has been unstinting in giving of his time and effort to the task of organizing a team worthy to represent the College. We cannot close this article better than with an expression of appre- ciation of his untiring and unselfish efforts. 191 Ilolbersi of cabemic ctibitieg Jlebalss Elliot P. Dodge ' 26 Edward A.

Or let us say, instead, that we do not forget, but merely lay aside the memory, tenderly placing it in some quiet niche where it can be kept inviolate, and still not hamper our present activities. But in this, the tenth anniversary of the United States ' entrance into the conflict, it is fitting that we who call M. A. C. our Alma Mater should pay tribute to those to whom the scene above with all its beautiful surroundings is dedicated. Thirteen hundred Aggie men participated in the World War. This number, startling in so young and small a college, included students, alumni, and faculty members. All of the classes from 1878 to 1925 were represented, and the number included men whose military ranks ranged from colonel to private. Aggie men participated in every major engagement of the war. Fifty-one there were who died in service. " Greater love hath no man than this — " It was to these, our immortal, we pledged ourselves when we wrote above the door of their Memorial Building, " We will keep faith with you who lie asleep. " So brief an appreciation can not give proper emphasis to each project entered into by students and faculty — probably no comment, however lengthy, could do that. It is the purpose of these few words to bring to the reader new realization of what Aggie did in the War, and to inspire in him new faith. It is indeed a splendid thing to be the son of so heroic a mother! Vttt S oi ttv Moi ttv Neil C. Robinson Kenneth A. Bartlett Harry C. Nottebaert Robert H. Owers . Frank P. Rand Donald H.

Steinbugler 194 Vtfjt Eoisiter JBoisittv THE activities of the Roister Doisters since the 1927 Index was published show that they still rank near the top among the academic activities at M. A. C. The Roister Doisters presented " She Stoops to Conquer " by Goldsmith in modern dress (as an experiment) for the 1927 Prom Show, and from all indi- cations, it was a success. An offer was received from alumni in Washington, D. C, to put on the show there, but the shortness of the time before the Com- mencement show limited the players to giving it at Sunderland, Deerfield, and Northfield Seminary. Neil C. Robinson ' 27 as " Tony " was the star of the show. For the 1926 Commencement show, the Society put on " The Devil ' s Dis- ciple " , which, though well received, was not quite understood by many in the audience. To the management, this show was a trial because everything hap- pened that could have happened and not ruin the whole show. For instance, in the third act, or rather, between the second and third acts, the brand new drop that had been painted especially for the third act puHed out of its fastenings and could not be replaced, so plain green flats had to be hurriedly substituted. In " The Devil ' s Disciple " a new leading lady was introduced to Aggie audiences in Miss Miriam H. Huss ' 29, who interpreted the part of the minister ' s wife very well indeed. Margaret Shea ' 26 as " Essie " , Theodore J. Grant ' 26 as " Dick Dudgeon " , and Neil C. Robinson ' 27 as " General Burgoyne " also stood out in this play. This year the Roister Doisters decided to do something different for the Aggie Revue, so plans were made to film a scenario written by Prof. Frank Prentice Rand and Neil C. Robinson ' 27. The players were unable to finish it in time, however. It is hoped that the " movie " which was started last fall will be completed some time this spring and shown to the student body. A. Rodger Chamberlain was the photographer, and Professor Rand, the director. The decision to drop the " movie " was made just before Thanksgiving so the Roister Doisters had about two weeks in which to work up substitutions for the program. The credit for one of the best Aggie Revues in years should go to Neil C. Robinson ' 27 because of the fact that the entire program, with the exception of the freshman play, was arranged by him in less than two weeks. He coached the freshmen in their three-act play, " T ' was Ever Thus " , which was written by Eric Singleton ' 30; he coached the Roister Doister one-act play, " If Men Played Cards as Women Do " , and made himself personally responsible for each of the numbers that made up the rest of the program. The part of the program sup- plied by " Dutch " Ansell and his " song and dance " artists was one of the hits of the evening. The 1928 Prom show has also been selected, a mystery play entitled " In the Octagon. " HARRY C. NOTTEBAERT 195 J)e Collesian VLi)t Cliitorial department William L. Dole ' 27 .

The members of the Collegian Board are elected from the freshman and sophomore classes at the end of a competition which is held during the fall term of each year. The members elected serve on the board the remainder of their college course, or as long as it is deemed advisable for the welfare of the paper. It has always been the policy of the Editorial Board to publish those edi- torials which express various opinions of the student body and also those articles which will arouse discussion and thereby draw out ideas, in the form of commun- ications, from students who are not members of the board. The extent to which the board has been successful in carrying out this policy is evidenced by the great increase in the number of communications which have been received during the past few months. During the past year, the Editorial Department has been working under many handicaps. The first obstacle to be surmounted was choosing a Managing Editor. This was doubly difBcult because there were no members of the present senior class who were eligible, and, therefore, the junior members were forced to alternate in the position. This condition, together with the resignation of three other members because of studies, left an Editorial Department of but eight members. It was thought at first that the reporting strength would be inadequate but through the cooperation of those remaining, no deficiency was noticed. Much credit is due to William L. Dole who, as Editor-in-Chief, directed the pub- lication through this period of weakness. Ellsworth Barnard and Ernest L. Spencer are the two juniors who have alternated as Managing Editors. A new department has been created to take the place of the Cider Press. This new feature is the Personals Column, which has been under the supervision of Frances C. Bruce. At the beginning of the fall term, the Business Department adopted a new policy which eliminated practically all the national advertisers and, therefore, made more space available for news. This change was indeed welcome, and was made possible as a result of the drive which was completed last fall. The deficit which has handicapped the board during the past few years has been completely removed, and the paper once more rests on a firm finanical foundation. 197 Harold E. Clark . Albion B.

The editor is only incidental, his assistants simply valuable connecting links between the class and its book. To all our literary contributors who were not members of the staff, we have tried to give due credit. Our editors and assis- tants must be content with the knowledge of having mutually served in the evo- lution of an Index. The 1928 Board has done its best to design a volume which is distinctly a class book, for that is the primary purpose of the Index. Familiar faces joined with a few characterizing phrases will become more valuable as the years slip past, enabling us to call up more distinct memories of friends and events. This Index also contains several familiar views of the Campus, these having been inserted with the hope of providing permanent records of spots which were the scenes of our pleasures and our trials while at old Aggie. The feature articles have also been intended to serve the same purpose by supplementing the photo- graphic accounts. And lastly, the Index is valuable for its statistics concerning Campus events of the past year, and concerning our class activities of the past three years. As a reliable reference for these facts, the book is by no means least useful. The 1928 Board has e xperienced difficulties, but it has also been blessed with its share of pleasures. We co-workers on this publication feel that our labors have brought benefits to others and to ourselves. That is sufficient reward. The Class will pass judgment on the merit of our efforts. Do you remember our Sophomore Banquet in May, 1926 — And how we earned the right to celebrate? Do you remember the masked men who garnished the Abbey lawn with " a little green " one fair morning , leaving the despondent frosh to be rescued by the ladies. Do you suppose the Class of 1927 recalls the wholesale removal of footwear during the Banquet Scrap? 199 iH. , C. fudging Vttam William G. Amstein jFruit Sfubging l eam Calton O. Cartwright Frank J.

The conceptions ex- pressed in one ' s senior year are of doubtful significance at best; those formed dur- ing one ' s junior year are doubly questionable. But what would a yearbook be without characters? There is a certain pleasure to be enjoyed in glancing over familiar names and faces linked with either particidarly fitting or peculiarly ludicrous epithets. The future will correct erroneous impressions; the present affords time for appreciation of our characters as we know them. Classmates, be tolerant critics. Characters, be patient martyrs!
