So also have great numbers of the M.S.C. alumni, many of whom we remember well as students and friends on this campus. Now they are fighting men, at their posts in all parts of the world. Some have been decorated for heroism beyond the call of duty. Some have given their lives. We are sadly aware that in coming months, or years, there will be more — perhaps many more. We have a special right to be proud of these men of M.S.C. — of their character, their service, the record they have made. ord is a good one.

Whether or not engaged in actively teaching aviation students, all the faculty has shown enthusiasm and pride in doing its best to aid the war effort. Many have been burdened with increased hours of classes, inadequate classroom and laboratory facilities, and the strangeness of the courses they were assigned to present in routine army fashion. Indeed, there are many instances in which instructors have adjusted them- selves and their modes of teaching to fields of study far removed from their realm. Unusual arrangements have be- come usual and common as language pro- fessors instruct in ])hysics, psychologists explain math, and " land-arch " professors teach geography. The success of our double-trouble pro- fessors is measured by the number of men who have profited by their instruction to the extent of obtaining their goal in avia- tion. This success in turn is indicative of the eagerness and conscientiousness with which our faculty accepted this strenuous program of adjustment and hard work. All is not work, however, for many have found in the new adventure, oppor- tunities for using creative ingenuity. One physics professor found it cumbersome to carry storage batteries from one end of campus to the other as his schedule led him from Physics 25 lecture to the air- student labs. As a time and trouble saver, he devised a rear compartment on his bicycle to hold the cells. Many such contraptions have resulted for expediting the profs ' daily work. It has seemed strange to professors during the past few months to have rows of khaki-clad men before them in the classroom in place of the civilian men and women of a year ago. But their presence was in keeping with the many changes wrought on our campus by the war. Soon, the air students grew to be an integral part of our campus life, showing interest and willingness to cooperate with students. Because the air students realize the great job ahead of them, they accept their work and assignments seriously, and are in most cases a credit to their instructors. In turn, the instructors find pleasure in teaching men who are so interested and at times really humorous. In a certain professor ' s class one morning, there was a very sleepy soldier. Bill. Bill had studied the material for the day and knew every rule and formula verbatum, but was so tired, he just couldn ' t stay awake in class. His buddy tried to keep him from dozing, but found it hopeless. Suddenly the professor called on Bill to state the rule under discussion. In his sleep but in a clear tone, Bill quoted the rule, verbatum, to the astonishment of the entire class. The professor let him sleep. As air students march out, and coeds saunter in to take their places, the pro- fessor demasks his scientific being in preparation for a forty-minute English lecture. Such inner transfigurations occur many times throughout each day as our wartime professor gives his " all " for the education of students. voidJde Old Chapel, the vivid symbol of our college and number one memory of Massachusetts State Col- lege ' s men and women, holds, as do the following few pages, many of the treasured remembrances of the khaki-clad cadets of the 58th College Train- ing Detachment as well as of the graduating Class of 1944, underclassmen, and faculty members. estate, Attfuf. SttfU. Here they come gals! Tromp, tromp — " Peek a boo! Is there a Sarge in there? " " Nope! " " Well, guess we ' ll have — a soda ! — a frappe ! — a dish of ice-cream ! — " " Yea, me too! — " " I was here first! — " " Hey sis — I ' d like — " " Hey, Blondie, remember me? I like lots of ice-cream — " So it goes. They beg. They yell. One easy lesson in how to go definitely balmy. Once upon a time, long, long ago, there were just civilians on the campus. Then came war, then came the 58th, the hungriest bunch of fellas in the world. They eat ice-cream at 11:30, lunch at 12:00, ice-cream at 12:30— they eat all the time ! During World War I ' twas said the boys used to shoot crap. Now they flip coins (in public — don ' t know what goes on behind closed doors). Winner gets double of everything gooey while looser digs down for that last two bits. Joe College is no more — now A S Doe. There are types of cadets: the wolf type, the were-wolf type, the shy type (only one or two of these), and the definitely slap- happy type. The wolf is known by his pepsodent smile and come hither looks (one eye on the coed and one eye out for the Sarge with the gig sheet). The were- wolf — he ' s the one who howls at the sight of any female, 8 ' x 2 ' or 5 x 5. (He ' s been away from civilization for some time — anything looks good to him !) And the shy type — he ' s the one who says, " Oh, I ' m not fussy. Give me anything. " Then he seats himself and never looks at the girls. (Low blood pressure, cause.) As for the " slaphappy " A S; oh! he ' s just the regu- lar guy. He comes in big as life — thinks he ' s in the Ritz bar room — says, " I ' ll have a small beer and a shot of rye. " He gets a short coke with a stick of lemon — and he ' s satisfied. There are cadets from the north and cadets from the south. The only way you can tell them apart is to try short-chang- ing one. If he yells — " Hey, sis, my Uncle Sammy only gives me 7c per hour, " he ' s a northern man. If he says, " Ma ' m, I ' m just a pore boy working ma ' way through the Air Corps, " he ' s from .south of the Mason-Dixon line. There are cadets who will take you into their confidence and tell you that girls mean nothing to them, ' specially these coeds, for " Well, you see, there ' s a certain gal back home. " But don ' t be surprised if you see one of these " Don ' t sit under the apple-tree ' ers, " with a win- some coed. Cest la guerre] — you know. Really though, they ' re a fine bunch of fellows. They lent pep to our old campus and taught us much — ' specially army tactics and maneuvers. We ' ve learned to respect their apparent jollity when we realize the hell they are headed for in the war areas. We have benefited by their coming and hope that they have benefited by being here on this " friendly " campus! Eleanor Dudley 3 ue Be iet The blue beret tenderly hung away, and the gold watch carefully placed on the table, Dr. Fraker is ready to begin Span- ish class. The assignment was " Oh, trans- late the next ten pages, " but what with one thing and another, class discussion is never where Dr. Fraker suspects the next ten pages are. Translation starts, and Miss Jones mispronounces a sentence starting " Un hombre con un paraguas. " After correct- ing the clumsy-tongued coed, Dr. Fraker observes that the umbrella ' d man is one with something for the rain — para from the Latin " for the purpose of " and aguas from the Latin " water, " and thus " rain. " Logical? And thoughts of ten pages to be translated drift merrily to the four winds — " four " from the German 10 " vier. " And it so happens that the um- brella and the man were walking as far as Norzagaray Street, where he was going to catch a bus — or — well, something vehicular. Now, any queer name like Norzagaray undoubtedly belongs to the Basque tongue. The Basques come from a high country in the Pyrenees; they have never been conquered; their language is the most difScult in the world. Unamuno, the brilliant philosopher, is a Basque. And there is a dose of geography, mil- itary strategy and biography, courtesy of Dr. Fraker. Then, too, our hero, besides protecting himself from the rain, had another purpose in mind. He was going to Colorado. Introducing American History. Dr. Fraker was born in Colorado, which, until 1919, was Indian Territory. The people planted crops and herded cows, and, when the men were away, the women fought the Indians alone. This is the be- ginning of an American Saga. Spanish becomes, not a jumble of verbs and rules for using the subjunctive, but a living, working language. Often, under the stress, the professorial pencil breaks and, very seriously. Dr. Fraker produces a pen-knife and very seriously whittles his pencil into a sym- metrical pin-point. At which point, a bell rings and Dr. Fraker collects his watch and beret. Spanish class is over. C AND ICE Read Once upon a time when butter was plentiful, nylons purchasable, and MEN on the campus, the student body was too large for the auditorium. To the indigna- tion of the upperclasses, it was, therefore, decreed that the juniors and seniors should attend convocation during alternate sem- esters. Those were the days! Awed fresh- men used to stand at respectful attention while the senior class strutted out, to the strains of the " Alma Mater. " And when the turn of the juniors came, they usurped regretfully-surrendered seats of giggling sessions and self-importance. It is not now as it has been of yore. The student body has adjusted itself to the auditorium. Juniors and seniors, in merry company, knit and write letters at the same convocation. A junior can no longer occupy the seat of her senior friend who has an aversion to military speakers or has run out of stationery. Outnumbered and robbed of their masculine poise, the upper classes tiptoe to their conspicuous position under the watchful eyes of the monitor and the platform, and sneak out between the self-possessed glares of freshman womanhood. „ Skip An in-a-word description of Doric Joseph Alviani, Ed.M., is " enthusiasm. " Descriptive as the term may be, it is nonetheless an understatement. Doric ' s vitality, pep and " go " have put the snap into many a campus frolic. Just like one of the gang, he is always ready for fun, and his grand sense of humor and hearty laughter make him welcome everywhere. A broad grin, a whiffle, and, come zero zephyrs, an extraordinary fur coat are his trademarks. Happy-go-lucky as he may seem, Doric is not just a rah-rah boy; those who have seen him work have been conscious of a strong current of seriousness beneath the carefree exterior, and of his understand- ing, sincere love for music. Never is this feeling more evident than when he raises his fine baritone voice in song or plays so expressively on the organ or piano. He does not completely betray his appear- ance, however, for he can tickle a mean ivory in a hot bit of boogie-woogie. With all these accomplishments comes one inevitable questio n — " Temperamen- tal? " Well, that ' s hard to say. After the 11 way he vanished without awaiting his present after the first operetta we won- dered — and so did the audience — but Doric ' s seeming patience at rehearsals is really a study in self-control — maybe he uses yogi. Speaking of rehearsals, there is Doric ' s habitual " relaxing. " Many a coed has wondered audibly why he bothered to get all dressed up anyway. Almost invariably Doric arrives at rehearsals with jacket, sweater, shirt and tie. Right at the beginning, he lays aside his jacket, preparing for action, then at intervals in the succeeding ten minutes, he rolls up his shirtsleeves, loosens his tie, opens his shirt collar, takes off his sweater and removes his tie in approximately that order, meanwhile stretching his sweater — while he retains it — nearly down to his knees. It is almost impossible to picture Doric as a member of the faculty. One of the first profs incoming freshmen meet, he has been taken frequently for a senior, so lacking is all pomp and most dignity. Informal, friendly, " collegiate, " admired and liked for the verve and spirit he brings to campus doings, he commands, nevertheless, as much respect as docs the most austere professor. To put it briefly — a really swell guy, that ' s Doric. Katie QluUit tui4. Pilx Ufiusx " Where are you going . " " To the infirmary, to have my throat sprayed. Haven ' t you been yet? " The flu epidemic on campus seemed to be reaching alarming dimensions. Rumors of a-patient-every-other-minute records were being spread and made to appear plausible by the migrations headed away from classroom buildings toward the ex-Phi-Sig house, now the Student In- firmary, since the Army took over the original di-spensary of bandages and cold- pills. Late one night, a merry group of freshman girls skipped and giggled down Fraternity Row. Asked where they were going, they replied in chorus with the old refrain: " To the infirmary. " Soon, every healthy person left on campus hesitated to confess to his ab- normal condition. The feeling seemed to prevail that, if one did not manifest one ' s school spirit by sharing the common torture of having his throat painted, one might at least co-operate to the extent of sniffing and coughing a bit. Other means had failed to get the Christmas vacation extended. Surely the Board of Health could be convinced, by mass action, that an epidemic student body should not be subjected to contaminated last-minute hour examinations. " Did you hear that we are going to be dismissed at Convo? " " Not until then? I thought we weren ' t going to be here after Wednesday noon. " At any rate, rumors, as usual optimis- tic, soon made rosy results out of the yearning snifl ' s of coeds. There was even supposed to have been a faculty meeting called on the subject. A specific professor was praised for having advocated the cause of the long vacation. But Wednesday came and went, and nothing happened. Thursday arrived, and students sneezed and yawned through Convo; still the administration was silent and unmoved. There were reports that the infirmary was not quite so crowded on Friday morning. The pilgrimage had been unsuccessful; and the frustrated pilgrims, equipped with coughdrops and red noses, were homeward bound. Eva Schiffer jbocto Q. Have you seen the little man with the large straw hat digging up the Butter- field Terrace Victory gardens? Armed with felt cap and rake, he labors among 12 the fall leaves. At 7:58, he whizzes down Fraternity Row and pedals up the Old Chapel hill just as coeds break into a run for their eight o ' clock class. (It ' s his gear shifts that get him there.) He is present among innocent gather- ings of students everywhere. Bull sessions inevitably turn from the last U.S.O. dance to a baffling discussion buzzing with " f utilitarian irony, " and " religious hu- manism " (not to be confused with " moral humanism " ), " natural super- naturalism, " and the " twofold law of righteousness. " The outsider is left some- what in the dark; but when he hears the Renaissance discussed in terms of " per- vasive dualism " and " master dilemma, " he knows he is dealing with a student of Dr. Goldberg. " So what ' s " and curlecues which, upon deciphering, turn out to be question marks printed across a freshman ' s scru- pulously composed argumentative theme, are another clue to identification of this remarkable professor. " Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? " is the Doctor ' s paraphrase of the more usual comment, " illogical se- quence. " Is it surprising that Dr. Gold- berg ' s marginal remarks rate high in the appreciation of his students? Recently, a freshman even received personal advice on a margin, after having emphatically explained the purely Platonic nature of his interest in a girl. Quoth the wise counsellor, " Watch out! " In class. Dr. Goldberg is famous for austerity, but strangely so ; for Li ' l Abner often makes an appearance in his literary discussion; and he dramatizes effectively the spitting schoolmaster from J. A. Rice ' s Cavie Out of the Eighteenth Cen- tury. For many, the onion will long impersonate Beowulf. And, as we peel tearfully, Dr. Goldberg ' s analogy of the " accretive layers " in Beowulf ' s character will be painfully evident at the disclosure of each additional layer. When Dr. Goldberg reverts to serious- ness, all sorts of things may happen. Once, when he had just expounded the difference between " moral " and " re- ligious humanism, " — at that crucial moment — a string of pearls broke. " There, " remarked Dr. Goldberg with gratification, " you see how emphatically I stated that? " As a matter of fact. Doctor G. is usually emphatic, except in asserting his privilege of closing the period, which the class grants him with exceptional generosity. There is an alarm clock on his table; but, much to the secret disappointment of students, it does not " go off " with a loud clamor, for it is not set. Invariably, therefore. Dr. Goldberg carries his in- spiring enthusiasm to a rapt audience several minutes beyond the end of the period. His are some of the very few students who do not object to running to their next class, in exchange for a closing remark on the " compleat gentleman " or on Daisy Mae. " Skip " If the scurrying figure of a small- statured man is sighted in the Mathemat- ics Building, it is undoubtedly Professor Moore — better known to the students as " Dinty " . Besides being head of the mathematics department, he is also the motivating force behind the Mathe- matics Club. To those who lack the opportunity of becoming acquainted with Dinty, he may at first appear to be gruff and abrupt. However, those who are acquainted with him realize and enjoy the real Dinty, for under his seeming harshness is as friendly and sympathetic a professor as can be found on campus. Perhaps it is through his apparent brusqueness that he com- mands the attention, awe, and respect of so many students, particularly the 13 traditionally timid, fearful freshmen. A favorite tradition handed down from class to class and associated with Profes- sor Moore is that of his two definitions of infinity. Selecting a lengthy piece of chalk, he proceeds to the last blackboard in the far corner of the room, draws a continuous line from blackboard to black- board until he has exhausted all the avail- able board space in the classroom and approached a window, opens the window and casts the chalk out into space — and there, students, is his first definition of infinity. His second is similar to the first. As before, he continues the line until all the board space has been used, but now he approaches the door. The chalk — and Professor Moore — leave the room, and are seen no more during that hour. Such are the legends of Dinty — and infinity ! A habit for which Professor Moore is also noted pertains to the cleanliness of his boards. This he accomplishes by clutching an eraser in his left hand while writing with his right. The eraser chases the chalk at a fairly constant distance of about two words. In accordance with the Lamarckian theory students in his classes have developed remarkably keen and quick eyesight, as attempts to see the writing interposed between chalk and eraser, and screened by Dinty ' s body have provided effective exercise for the visual nerves. A brilliant man, Dinty often fails to comprehend the difficulties that many encounter in mathematics. He expects the student to have a thorough under- standing of the subject before taking the course. Unfortunately, the average stu- dent cannot measure up to his standards. However, all enjoy his eccentricities and, congratulating him on his twenty-fifth anniversary, wish him twenty-five more years of teaching here. JiMMIE 1944 is the Index ' s anniversary too — the seventy-fifth. " . 2 . Doctor Torrey refers to him as " Red O ' Donnell who never said much but had a good head " in Botany. Those who do not know him often mistake him for a stu- dent. Those who say they know him often mistake him. As he walks the campus with a dreamy smile, eyes on the ground, or with an intense stare, many have drawn the conclusion that he is not pre- occupied with the harmony of cadet spirituals. They may call him a dreamer, but his is not so flimsy a thing as a reverie. When a student brushes by and bids him good morning, he looks up " a little bit scared " and answers only after bringing his mind from Kubla Khan ' s pleasure dome or Plato ' s Republic. When Dr. O ' Donnell walks into the classroom, a student reports, she feels a kindly impulse to take him by the hand and say reassuringly, " It ' s all right — come on in. Don ' t be afraid. " What a change in him, when once he stands, very straight, behind the lecturn. He is seldom hilariously funny as his is the subtle humor that not all understand, not many remember, and few quote. Yet it spices his lectures and stimulates alertness. Shuffling his notes, he embarks upon his perilous method of drawing class argu- ment — or, rather, of provoking it. This he often attempts by taking a stand contrary to his own opinion. In one such instance, he found the class unanimously agreeing with the argument which he wanted them to refute. He was faced with the problem whether to leave them in ignorance or, for their enlightenment, to expose his deception. He redeemed himself by con- fession. One may well suspect, too, a transfer of this reliance upon the effectiveness of opposition to his treatment of grammar. Does he concentrate on this delight to freshmen so conscientiously so as to stim- ulate a craving for literature. Such seems 14 to be the result among his students. Only his own classroom students know Dr. O ' Donnell as an outstanding student of such men as Voltaire, Carlyle, and Plato, but the nickname " O.D. " is con- tinuously acquiring a more familiar, ap- preciative ring among under-graduates, who keep an eye of friendly interest on his actions. " Skip " (loom 20i (ladio.

Shades of " Ma Peters " or " John ' s Third Wife! " A young faculty assistant begs Prof. Dickinson for counsel. Should he become a deck officer, or wait to be drafted? Should he leave his wife and infant for a better-paying job, or should he stay with them longer, and give them only a private ' s pay later. ' A coed comes in and babbles of her sweetheart. Everyone else has been bored stiff at the recital of this super- man ' s qualities and adventures, but Pro- fessor Dickinson patiently listens while packing film. A faculty member lately come to these shores rushes in to ask which word of three he should use in his lecture. Pro- fessor Dickinson advises. The Glee Club ' s trip to New York is the subject of a dozen discussions on prices, fares, and number going; as a result " Prof " ' writes the letters and sends the telegrams in his capacity of financial advisor to the Academic Activities. " What should I use for fertilizer on that green in these war times, " asks a recent graduate of the Greenkeeper ' s School. The Agronomy Expert explains. Tune in tomorrow.

Doctor William Ross would be one of the most harried professors on campus today. For " Doc " is handsome, young, athletic, and a bachelor — in a college which is now predominantly fem- inine. Perhaps he does find relief from the demure glances and the genteel " wolfing " of some of his students in teaching the cadets. The army is primarily interested in his subject, physics, not in him ! Independent as a sophomore believes himself to be, " Doc " doesn ' t care for others ' opinions, but does as he wishes. On the other hand, his humor, though effective and tinted with sarcasm, is never personal. A pendulum, a gyroscope, or a cylinder is " Little Bessie " to " Doc, " for he seems genuinely fond of the apparatus he uses for his lectures. At times he varies the nomenclature — and then the instrument is " Esmerelda. " Besides being one of the best-liked and most efficient professors on the campus, " Doc " is always vividly in the memories of his students — " Doc " Ross standing on his head to discourage a soporific atmosphere in class, and incidentally illustrating a law of physics; or " Doc " Ross casually munching an apple while presenting his lecture !

Uai Be " The board of trustees, legislative body of Massachusetts State College with two stated meetings a year, is composed of the governor of the Commonwealth, the com- missioner of education, the commissioner of agriculture, and the president of the college, all serving ex-ofBciis; and not more than fourteen appointive members. The governor, with the advice and consent of the council, appoints new members for a seven-year term of office. Although personal expenses are paid, the appointive members receive no compen- sation. Most important among the duties and responsibilities of the trustees are the following: management and upkeep of all property belonging to the Commonwealth and occupied or used by the college; determination and regulation of instruc- tion in the college; election of the presi- dent, professors, tutors, and instructors and determination of their salaries, duties, and tenure of office; maintenance of the College Farm and provisions for its use by students; maintenance of experiment stations for practical demonstrations in gardening, planting, and growing.

The College is proud that through its sons and daughters it can share directly in the war for human f reedom, and is backing them and the war effort in a series of war programs. The College is training Army Air Force cadets; our teachers go out to other communities to train industrial workers; the Extension Service has taken leader- ship in Massachusetts food-production and preservation; teachers and adminis- trators are working the year through on the aviation teaching program and in the summer session. The College produc- tion departments — orchards, poultry plant, et cetera — have expanded to reduce our food purchases. New courses have been added, war-important research studies made, and short training courses for new farm workers provided. The College is glad to serve actively, and shall find new ways to do so. Another marked change has come to us. For the first time women students out- number the civilian men — 533 to 147. We welcome them, as it is increasingly apparent that women must play an im- portan t part in America ' s war eflfort and in the peace and rehabilitation to follow. I know that our women students join with me in pledging to Alumni and stu- dents in the Armed Forces our determin- ation to . carry on with the same high standards, to be ready for the readjust- ments of peacetime, and to keep the college high on the Nation ' s honor roll.

Back of the smooth running of Massa- chusetts State College, there is an ad- ministrative group who keep it so. This is no simple task, especially during these war years, which, with the shortages of labor and supplies alone, furnish many new problems for administrative officers. President Hugh P. Baker is the personal link between the trustees and the faculty; Dean William L. Machmer and Registrar Marshall O. Lanphear administer en- trance procedure and the curriculum. Miss Edna L. Skinner, as Dean of Wom- en, is concerned with their problems. And, with the 58th C.T.D. here, Professor Ralph A. Va n Meter was appointed Associate Dean in charge of the Army Air Force Academic Instruction. The College secretary is W ' illiam J. Burke; while treasurer Robert D. Haw- ley, and assistant treasurer John K. Broadfoot see that financial ends meet each year. Gunnar S. Erick.son, as bus- iness officer, buys college supplies in addi- tion to other financial responsibilities. Guy . Glatfelter is now Acting Director of the placement service for students, as Mr. Emery E. Grayson is in the service. Placement Officer for women is Miss Margaret Hamlin. Di- recting the Experiment Station and the Graduate school, is Fred J. Sievers; Ro- land H. Verbeck is Director of Short Courses, including Stockbridge School; and Willard A. Munson, Director of the Extension Service. The organizations they control are closely allied with the regular college program. Basil Wood commands the tacking up of little signs in Goodell Libe, and in the Alumni Office George E. Emery is the medium between the great beyond (the Alumni) and the souls here on campus.

Memorial Building still has an air of authority about it, for the Army Air Corps officers have tak- en over the Senate and W.S.G.A. rooms, and the Panhellenic and Inter-Fraternity Councils still meet there. MlMJOA Udj, Q(Ufje ui4m4 As the men students ' government body, the Senate, despite war curtailments, is very active this year. Since some of last year ' s members were inducted into the Army, the organization adopted the name Senate Associates to distinguish it from the original organization. Some of the present members were elected to substitute for war-absent members. As always, it supervised hazing and stood upon its right to take disciplinary meas- ures against recalcitrant freshmen with the traditional paddle and pond-dunking methods. Blushing boys with girls ' white berets were evidence, also, of the Senate ' s stern justice. The main concern of the Senate, how- ever, is the welfare of the student body and the control of the activities of the men students. In this capacity, it set up a freshman governing board and organized the entire freshman class; as last year, members of the Senate facilitated class voting by carrying the ballots to the dormitories; it appointed the male mem- bers of all campus committees such as the Community Chest, the War Bond Com- mittee, and the Winter Carnival Com- mittee; it supported the Winter Carnival and the Community Chest financially from funds allotted to it as part of the student taxes; it organized informal dances and supplied the college infirmary with magazines. The Senate ' s major objective, this year, is the launching of a post-war construction program solidify- ing the opinions of students, parents, and alumni as to the necessity of constructing several new classroom buildings for such subjects as physics and home economics which at present have classrooms and labs scattered among several buildings. The members of the Senate, who are elected in spring by all male students are, for this year, James Coffey ' 45, President; Frank Jost ' 44, Vice-President; Joseph Kunces ' 45, Secretary; Edward Putala ' 44, Treasurer; Curtis Wilson ' 44; Paul Sussenguth ' 45; Robert Monroe ' 44; Elmer Clapp ' 44. One of the organizations which the Senate governs, but whose members have no direct affiliation with it, is the Maroon Key. Fifteen freshmen are elected to this sophomore honor society shortly before the spring Commencement, by the entire male student body, and become active members as sophomores. The function of the society was to act as hosts to visiting teams at sport games and to visitors at High School Day, and is, therefore, together with such activities, suspended for the duration of the war. The president of the Maroon Key, to which societies similar in function exist at such colleges as Bates, Middlebury, and the University of Connecticut, is Alec Campbell, with the Navy V-12 pro- gram at Trinity College. " Women ' s Rights " received quite a boost this Spring, when women of ' 45 and ' 46 voted for next year ' s Senate from a slate of all male classmates. e ftocnxixuf. As mediator between the administra- tion and tlie coeds, the Women ' s Student Government Association acts as the legis- lative and executive organization of wom- en undergraduates. It looms behind the hazing committee and keeps the white berets perched on the freshmen ' s curls until Thanksgiving. It glowers, stop watch in hand, at tardy arrivals panting toward the signing-in sheet. And it per- sists in calling meetings the night before hour examinations. This year ' s officers, elected by all women students, are: Cynthia Leete, President; Helen Beaumont, Vice-Presi- dent; Marjorie Cole, Secretary; and Jean Burgess, Treasurer. This year a record number of women students are scattered in the ex-fraternity and off-campus houses, which, within the jurisdiction of the W.S.G.A., are subject to the off -campus council headed by Anne Tilton ' 46, and consisting of the chairmen of all off-campus houses. Since the Senate is temporarily represented merely by an acting senate, the W.S.G.A. is the only unchanged student government body at the Massachusetts State College. AnHtx cnxixuf Isogon is the women students ' honor society, composed of eleven upperclass girls selected on the basis of scholarship, personality, extracurricular activities, and versatility by the old members. Seven juniors are tapped in the spring and four seniors at mid-winter commencement exercises. One of the society ' s activities consists of the yearly publication of Coediqiiette, an advisory handbook for freshman girls. It represents Kay Tully ' s ' 41 humorous compilation of campus rules, plus reputed- ly useful information on campus clothing, and dating techniques, and was this year enlarged with Mary K. Ilaughey ' s war supplement, for adjustment to the pres- ence of cadets on campus. Isogon mem- bers also serve as ushers at graduation exercises in spring and provide for junior hostesses at the Amherst U.S.O. This j ' ear ' s members are Marian Whit- comb, President; Laura Williams, Vice- President; Lucille Lawrence, Secretary and Treasurer; Barbara Bemis, Cynthia Leete, Jean Burgess, Mary K. Haughey; and new senior members, Shirley Mason, Aileen Perkins, Miriam Le May, and Margaret Deane. 31 Vt Behold, they come — the mighty, noble, haughty, proud — the seniors. Though still the awe of freshmen, the scourge of sophs, the aim of juniors, they are now more serious. Facing the world with sadly depleted numbers, it is their task to carry on the traditions and glories of Massa- chusetts State College for those who gave up their diplomas to join in the fight for freedom. This year ' s officers were: Doug- las Hosmer, President; Lee Filios, Vice- President; Ruth Symonds, Secretary; Irving Nichols, Treasurer; Bob Monroe, Sergeant-at-Arms; Bob Stewart, Captain. This class is the one with the most varied college experience, for it knew M.S.C. when there was a 2 to 1 proportion of boys to girls on campus, when a certain Stockbridge professor named Parry Dodds caused many a flutter, when probably the most popular English classes given were those conducted by Barney " Hu- manism " Troy; when freshman boys and girls ate in Draper, and the frosh girls lived in the Abbey before Butterfield House was finished. The Class of 1945 has conducted a most successful social year under the leadership of the following officers: Jim Coffey, President; Kay Dellea, Vice- President; Allison Moore, Secretary; Joe Kunces, Treasurer; Paul Sussenguth, Captain; and Walter Goehring, Sergeant- at-Arms. Co-operating with class mem- bers, they have been influencial in pro- moting a part of the social program for underclassmen and Aviation Students. In providing its share of entertainment for the year, the Junior Class sponsored and planned the annual Winter Carnival program, thinking it fitting that such a vivid example of Massachusetts State College social life should be maintained as a shining tradition for the many students of the college now unable to enjoy such an event as a campus ball. The Class Party was not restricted this year to those in the Junior Class; rather, all classes were invited to enjoy the informal affair. In short, officers of the Class of 1945 have strived to keep college traditions and customs as unchanged as possible. Vt v Of all classes, sophomores are rumored hardest to teach. No wonder! A sopho- more looks down with condescending pity or paternal interest on the freshman, who, filled only with enthusiasm for campus life, jitters and giggles around with child- like ignorance and eager receptiveness. The junior, wasting his life with grinding, is an incomprehensible thing, beneath contempt. The senior is pitiable, either waiting for graduation or sentimentaliz- ing on Alma Mater and his waste of her generosity. In either case, he misses the opportunity which the soph seizes with self-assurance and holds with self-satisfied equilibrium: the chance for dictatorship. His, or rather, hers, is the right of hazing, the easiest class schedule and the domin- ance of extra-curricular activities. To the sophomore belongs the campus. Class officers are Donald Smith, Presi- dent; Dorothy Johnson, Vice-President; Marion McCarthy, Secretary; John Del- evoryas. Treasurer; Steve Waldron, Cap- tain; and Dick Chin, Sergeant-at-Arms. Since the Freshmen were not well enough acquainted with the members of their class to follow the example of the upperclassmen in electing class officers, an executive committee was chosen as it had been in previous years. This commit- tee, consisting of two representatives of the men of the Class of ' 47 and two repre- sentatives of their " better halves, " as- sumed the responsibilities of directing the activities of their cla.ssmates throughout the academic year. The girls chosen were Barbara Hanley and Helene Parker, and the members of the " stronger " sex were George Little and Stanley Sugarman. Later in the year, this number was reduced to three when Stanley Sugarman joined the Armed F ' orces. The three re- maining executives carried on, however, and led the Freshman class. Most noteworthy fact about the class was its overwhelming femininity. Butter- field couldn ' t hold the lasses of ' 47, so the smooth corridors of both the Kappa Sigma and the Theta Chi houses became the haunts of the boisterous overflow. Btaie MeJUaiUm lioo uii Rushing, establishment of an all- national-sorority campus, and inter- sorority spirit have been the outstanding topic of Panhellic Council discussions this year. As mediation board in sorority affairs, the Council ' s aim is to put into practice all laws put forth by National Panhellenic Congress. Aileen Perkins, president, in cooperation with Peg Deane, vice-president, Wilma Winberg, secre- tary-treasurer, Kay Dellea, Miriam Le- May, Pearl Wolozin, Laura Williams, Lucille Chaput, Marilyn Hadley, Jean Burgess, Pat Kenyon, and Dot Colburn, held long meetings among themselves and with members of the administration to formulate a plan for rushing to be held later than usual in the academic year, allowing freshmen and upperclass girls to become better acquainted before bidding began. They also shortened the formal rushing period to two weeks — a round-robin tea, three afternoon teas, a closed date, and pledging. Members of the council met with the freshman girls and transfer students to explain fully the system ' s operation. Again this year, in December, Pan- hellenic Council arranged a Patroness Tea to which were invited the patron- esses, housemothers, and presidents of all sororities. The affair was held at Sigma Kappa as a house- warming in observance of their first year as an organ- ized group on the campus. This spring the Council sponsored a series of open house dances to be held on Saturday nights at each of the sorority houses proceed- ing alphabetically. Traditional Intersorority Sing and Declamation was held on April 26th in Bowker Auditoriiun under the direction of Panhellenic Council. Each sorority was allowed to render two musical selec- tions with from eighteen to twenty-one girls participating in the chorus and one declamation in the form of various literary types suitable for monologue. Judges were chosen from the faculty, and graded each sorority from a standard form in singing and declaiming. Because of the absence of active fra- ternity chapters on campus this year, a group of students representing them met and decided that there would be no fraternity rushing or pledging of fresh- men throughout the year. Frank Jost, president-elect of the Interfraternity Council for 1943-44, acted as chairman of the fraternity representatives. All but four of the fraternity houses were rented by the college as girls ' dorms. Phi Sig became M.S.C. ' s student infirmary; Alpha Sig now bears the sign, " State House " ; A E Pi is now the Hillel House for State of the Pioneer Valley Foundation; and Sig Ep was rented as a private house. The few remaining fraternity men look long- ingly as they walk by the houses they once strolled nonchalantly into, and some of the Alpha Gams call their Nutting Avenue rooming house the " Alpha Gam Annex. " As Super- visor of Fraternity Leases, Professor John H. Vondell has charge of handling these " frarority " houses, which is only another proof that 1944 is a woman ' s year here at M. S. C. Checking out reserved books for overnight, Goodell Libe ' s ten o ' clock closing .... Noteworthy among student aims is that of high scholarship and the satisfaction of reaching the dean ' s list, or of being elected to Phi Kappa Phi. Realizing that the purpose of a college is education, conscientious underclassmen spend hours in study, and respect the honorary keys of their teachers. Bi(f4na 7(i jfO-n. Soie4iiliti The Massachusetts State Chapter of the Sigma Xi seeks to express the So- ciety ' s motto " Companions in zealous research " and maintain the object " To encourage original investigation in sci- ence pure and applied " by electing qual- ified investigators to membership and sponsoring meetings for the discussion of scientific subjects. During 1943-44, three public meetings were arranged ; on Novem- ber 30, " The Development and the Use of Penicillin in Treatment of Diseases " (led by Dr. J. W. Foster, M.S.C. ' 36); on January 26, a joint meeting with the Four-College Genetics Group on " Some Phases of Plant Genetics " ; and on March 29, an initiation meeting, followed by a discussion of " Psychology and Military Aviation. " These are the men and women to whom " To test for sulphate add barium nitrate and nitric acid to the unknown " and " Vitamin C prevents scurvy " and such- like bits of information aren ' t even con- sidered knowledge.

The original ideal of the Society, that philosophy is the true guide to a well- lived life, is still a profoundly appealing one; and the attitude it implies naturally draws together those who aspire to it and share it. The local group includes men of widely different interests, but underlying them all is the conviction that wisdom is more important than knowledge, that character is indispensable to the right use of the mind, that the man is m ore im- portant than the profession. The local Association has endeavored in its own programs to extend its knowl- edge of the ideas which shape the thought of liberally educated people in our time; it also participates in the objects of the national Society. Locally it has enter- tained speakers capable of sound scholarly addresses on a variety of subjects con- sonant with the range of the members ' interests: for example. Dr. Ernest F. Scott, The Meaning of the " Higher Crit- icism " of the Bible; Dr. O. E. Schott ' s Regeneration of Organs: the Action of Embryonic Organizers on Adult Tissue- Dean Marjorie Hope Nicolson, Science and the Literary Imagination; President Roswell G. Ham, In Pursriit of John Dryden; Dr. Warren K. Green, Modern Aids to Air and Sea Navigation. As for the national Society, it has sought in recent times to encourage its ideal in the world of affairs by fighting for th e cause of liberal education. The local association tries to give expression to the ideal by electing from the senior class each spring, a Phi Beta Kappa scholar. whose record expresses the ideal of the Society. The scholar is to be one whose academic record and attitude toward his college experience indicate intellectual maturity, an inquiring and reflective turn of mind, and a sense of the importance of the ideals a man lives by. The Phi Beta Kappa scholar for 1943 was Ephraim Morton Radner of Springfield. For Phi Beta Kappa scholar of 1944, the group chose Miss Charlotte Eigner of Swamp- scott. The following members of the local association are connected with the col- lege: Dr. Vernon P. Helming, President; Mrs. Kenneth L. Bullis, Vice-President; Dr. Walter M. Miller, Secretary-Treas- urer; Dr. A. B. Beaumont, Dr. G. C. Crampton, Lieutenant Charles H. Du- Bois, Mrs. William B. Easton, Jr., Mrs. G. E. Eriokson, Dr. Stowell C. Coding, Professor Arthur N. Julian, Dean Wil- liam L. Machmer, Dr. A. Anderson Mackimmie, Dr. Helen S. Mitchell, Professor Frank C. Moore, Dr. William H. Ross, Mrs. Frank R. Shaw, Dr. Marion Smith, Mr. Basil B. Wood, Dr. Gilbert L. Woodside. 0n military leave " He ventured Far to preserve the Liberties of Mankind, " is inscribed over the mantel in the Memorial Room dedicated to those State College men who gave their lives in the last war .... Today, with friends, relatives, and sweethearts fighting for those same Freedoms, Massachusetts State College students turn for spiritual peace to their religious clubs even more than usual. To create a spirit of un- derstanding among students of differing religious beliefs, the United Religious Coun- cil was established. Under the direction of Rev. ' . Burnet Eastou, it consists of three representatives each from the Hillel Club, the Newman Club, and the Student Christian Associa- tion. The Council realizes that although there are funda- mental differences in con- viction among Catholics, Jews and Protestants, there are also areas in which these denominations can all work together. It was the United Religious Council which instituted the Sunday Afternoon Vesper Services, now such an integral part of campus life. Big event of the U.R.C. ' s year was an informal tea and discussion led by Mr. Lewis Fox of Hartford, on the sub- ject, " Living Your Own Religion. " The Social Hall of Memorial Hall was crowded with students, all eager to hear this gentle Jewish exponent of the inter-faith movement. This year ' s Council consists of Miriam LeMay, Dorothy Maraspin and Walter Goehring, from the Student Christian Association; Shirley Mason, Lucille Cha- put and Mary Vachon, from the Newman Club; Sylvia Rossman, Charlotte Eigner and Irving Saltzman from the Hillel Club. Reverend Eastoii M. S. C. ' s Religious Director The Student Christian Association replaced the Christian Federation of Protestant Students a year after the coming of Rev. W. Burnet Easton in 1941. Eager to support nonsec- tarian Christianity, the col- lege S.C.A. is connected with the N.E.S.C. Move- ment and the World S. C. Federation. All Protestant students are associate mem- bers, while the work is per- formed by the " active " members. Activities include pub- lishing the Handbook and the bi-weekly, Sca7i; con- ducting Sunday evening services at the local Hope Congregational Church; hold- ing Friday afternoon worship services and freshman discussions; organizing visiting committees and groups to go to local churches. The S.C.A. is directed by the Cabinet which meets weekly. This year ' s cabinet members, selected for interest in S.C.A. work, ability to lead, and scholastic standing, are Dorothy L. Maraspin, President ' 44; Walter Goehring, Vice- President ' 45; Elizabeth Jordan, Secre- tary ' 44; Fred West, Treasurer ' 45; Ruth Steele ' 46, Miriam Le May ' 44, Claire Healy ' 46, John Delevoryas ' 46, Carolyn Whitmore ' 46, Goon Lee (Dick) Chin ' 46, Marjory Reed ' 44, Virginia Tripp ' 45, Robert Young ' 44, Stephen Waldron ' 46. QiiA Uilcun 40 Most noteworthy achieve- ment of the former Men- orah Ckib, the rehgious organization for Jewish stu- dents at Massachusetts State College, since its affil- iation to the national Hillel Society, is the acquirement, last summer, of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraterntiy house for the duration. This was obtained through the inex- haustible energy of Dr. Maxwell H. Goldberg, fac- ulty advisor of Hillel, and of Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg, who, as the new Hillel director, divides his time between Smith and State College. As the only religious club on campus with its own community center, Hillel is now in a position for close co- operation with the inter -faith work. This year, the Student Christian Association holds cabinet meetings at the Hillel house. The club ' s program includes classes in elementary Hebrew, taught by Rabbi Hertzberg, which are open to all students; the weekly publication of the Calendar: regular Sunday night meetings with speakers and discussion groups; and peri- odical Saturday night dances. As the Jewish center for military and civilian students of Amherst and State, Hillel holds Sunday afternoon services. This year ' s officers are; Golda Edin- burg. President; Laura Resnick, Vice- President; Hyman Hershman, Inter-faith Representative; Barbara Brown, Record- ing Secretary; Beatrice Shapiro, Corres- ponding Secretary. Rabbi Hertzberg Bi-college Hillel Leader This year the Newman Club celebrates the fif- teenth anniversary of its founding as a local campus organization by joining the National Federation of Newman Clubs, including chapters in colleges all over the United States. The aim of the club is to bring the Catholic students closer to- gether and to promote a greater understanding of their faith. Advised by Father Alfred J. Lane, pas- tor of St. Brigid ' s Church, its members usually meet in Old Chapel on the first Wednesday of each month. In the year ' s program were discussions, speakers, and communion breakfasts. At various meetings. Father John Power, popular young curate of Saint Brigid ' s Church, gave lectures on the different parts of the Mass and their significance, as well as on the vessels and vestments used in celebrating the Mass. Outstand- ing student-led discussions were held on birth control and Protestantism. On December fifth, a communion breakfast was held in Parish Hall, with Father Johnson, of Northampton, as guest of honor. Also, the members of the Club are helping to collect funds towards purchas- ing a new organ for St. Brigid ' s Church, where members have listened to the wheezes of the old one for years. The officers of the Newman Club for this year are: President, Shirley Mason; Vice-President, Joseph Kunces; and Sec- retary-Treasurer, Mary Vachon. J lew4nan 41 0d l HXXJcUiJ04i. Methodist students on campus have reaUzed in the Wesley Foundation, this year, a spirit of comradeship which strengthened to a deep interest in, and knowledge of, the fundamentals of their religion. The club has been especially active under the leadership of the follow- ing officers: President, Peggy Merritt; Secretary, Claire Healy; Devotion Chair- man, Martha Harrington; Co-recreation Chairmen, Allison Moore and Alma Rowe. Director of the club was Rev. Harold H. Cramer, pastor of the Methodist Church. Deputation teams were delegated to speak before student groups on campus and in the near vicinity; a discussion series, conducted at the home of Profes- sor Adrian H. Lindsey, consisting of four Lenten Vespers given Sunday afternoons followed by a social hour and supper ; and regular Sunday evening discussions con- ducted throughout the college year. Among the featured lectures were: " The Future of Christianity in America " by Dr. Paul Johnson, Professor of Re- ligion at Boston University; " The Future of Christianity in Mexico " by Mr. Wes- ley Matzigseit, noted Alumni traveller in Mexico; " The Future of Christianity in the Far East " by Timothy T. Fang Leu, a member of the legislative council of China; and the " Future of Christianity in Rural America " by Professor C. M. McConnell, world authority on rural life. The Wesley Foundation Club has shown quite clearly by its successful and enlightening program of the year, that students (especially women) are now turning to their religious organizations more than ever before, during a period of crisis. As in previous years Episcopalian stu- dents on campus were united in the Phillips Brooks Club, organized in 1937 by Rev. George Leslie Cadigan of Grace Church and an integral part of campus life ever since. Under the guidance of faculty adviser Dr. Charles F. Fraker and Rev. Charles Lawrence of Grace Church, the club held regular monthly meetings throughout the year. At these meetings, justly-famous student-planned suppers preceded talks by well-known speakers. The members were fortunate this year in being able to hear, among others. Miss Eleanor Snyder of Northampton, who spoke on women ' s work in the church; Mary Ellen Chase, authoress and instruc- tor in English Composition at Smith College, who spoke on the Bible; and Dr. H. Karl Lutge, instructor in German here at State. These informal lectures were followed by round-table discussions under the direction of Rev. Lawrence which were both profitable and enjoyable to the students and others who attended. These meetings were well-attended and drew students of other denominations. When Rev. Lawrence entered the armed services early in 1944, the guidance of the club was taken over by Rev. Jesse M. Trotter, an inspiring leader. Early in March, the student-planned lunches were superceded by more sub- stantial suppers which proved extremely successful. The student directors of the club were Dorothy Maraspin, President, and Ethel M. Libby, Secretary-Treasurer, who have held well-attended Communion services in Old Chapel Seminar Room on Thurs- days. Terpsichorean Interlude a la Drill Hall Strenuous programs to keep State students in war- time condition have been promoted this year by the Physical Education department under the supervision of a comparatively new teaching staff. In conjunction with these Physical Education schedules, student organizations have been spon- soring hikes, dances, and interclass sports events. a Keep, a During wartime in a college where women students carry on for Statesmen now in the armed services, a women ' s physical-fitness program acquires new significance. The Physical Education Department has undergone many changes with a new head for the department, a new instructor, a record-breaking class of freshman girls, and a junior-and-senior course in physical education. Miss Ruth Totman and Miss Winifred Schoenleber, the new head of the depart- ment and new instructor, respectively, in co-operation with Miss Shirley Winsberg have revised the physical-fitness program introduced last year, to suit prevailing circumstances. The requirement of juniors and seniors to take physical education is in part suspended ; they are not compelled to take a winter sport as the Drill Hall cannot shelter this year ' s unusually large number of coeds from Amherst ' s northerly breezes. The limited time and space is devoted to the freshman and sophomore classes. This did not prevent those juniors and seniors who so desired from partici- a pating in an indoor sport, but most upper- class women prefer to exercise more se- dately, by writing letters or knitting. Another provision of the fitness pro- gram was that one of the three periods a week was to be devoted to calisthenics. This year, calisthenics is offered at the opening of every physical education class. Before graduating, each girl must now pass a swimming test, consisting of a demonstration of ability to swim three hundred feet, and to stay afloat for 15 minutes. There are no longer swimming classes during the day, as the Army has priority on use of the swimming pool for the duration; however, classes are held in the evenings, with preference being given to those seniors who have not passed their swimming test. Miss Totman had a hopeful vision. The freshman class must take, during one season of the year, the course offered in modern dancing, to insure, optimistically, the continuance of grace and shapeliness among State coeds! 96. Modi 44 4. M GluL The Outing Club has continued to function this year even though the ma- jority of the members are in the armed forces. The girls have carried on a sched- ule similar to that of last year, although on a much smaller scale due to trans- portation difficulties, the accelerated pro- gram, and crowded schedules. During the fall, several bike trips were made through the surrounding towns. On a trip to Northfield and Winchester, N. H., the members mapped an A.Y.H. ski trail to be developed after the war. Two weekends were spent climbing Mounts Toby and Warner, while plans are being laid for a trip to Mount Tom this spring. Only winter activities the club par- ticipated in, were skating and a little Amherst skiing. In co-operation with the 4-H Club, four successful square dances were held. Officers are: President, Margie Reed; Treasurer, Ginny Tripp; Corresponding and Recording Secretaries, Lucie Zwisler and " Twink " Bousquet; Publicity Man- ager, Bob Young. GUiA The M.S.C. 4-H Club has been just as active this war year as ever, for the 4-H-ers have worked to fulfill their pledge of service with " head, heart, hands, and health. " Refreshments and entertainment at monthly meetings gave the many ar- dent members on campus an added incen- tive for participation. In addition to other activities, the club has taken part in radio programs. Among these was a New Year ' s broadcast put on entirely by State stu- dents with the assistance of Grunow O. Oleson, extension editor. Until February, the club was under the able leadership of Elmer Clapp, President; Barbara Bemis, Secretary; Betty Mentzer, Treasurer ;Marjorie Reed, Entertainment Chairman; and Mary Milner, Refreshment Chairman. After elections, these officers were relieved by an equally efficient executive board con- sisting of Mary Milner, President; Jack Blalock, Vice-President; Betty Mentzer, Secretary; Claire Healy, Treasurer; Pat Jennings, Recreation Chairman; Faith Clapp, Refreshment Committee Chair- man; Emerson Hibbard and Mary Alice Cande, Executive Committee. 45 96. SuHHunii Qaod The Swimming Club of the Women ' s Athletic Association came into being when a group of girls organized a swim- ming pageant for Mother ' s Day in 1939. Since then its popularity has been contin- ually increasing. In 1940-41, the swim- ming team, later to expand into a fully- organized club, was national champion in the Eastern Region National Inter- collegiate Telegraphic Meets, against some of the country ' s leading coed and women ' s colleges. During the 1941-1942 season, the club was newly organized and began to hold regular weekly meetings. The training program concentrated on two phases, formation and speed swimming. That year set the precedent for the water ballet which has been a popular feature of the Freshman Play Day for the last three years. Also introduced were an inter- sorority tournament and inter-class meets. In January, a ballet team of ten girls was invited to appear in a New England Championship meet at Whitinsville, Massachusetts. The ballet proved so successful that, at the meet, the team re- ceived an invitation to reappear at the Junior Nationals in Worcester the same month. Complying with the request of the campus, the team exhibited their famed performance at Winter Carnival in M.S.C. ' s own Whitcomb Pool. The ballerinas swimming were Ruth Howarth Jo Freclandcr, Dot Hurlock, August, Janet Mallon, Pauly Piper, Mar; Ellie Rockwood Cole, Golda Edinburg, Dot Colbu Marge Huff, Lois Kosene, Bobby Burke I the picture are Isabelle Sayles, Cynthia Foster, and Spring members.

Haughey and Doris Sheldon. At its final appearance for the year, on Mother ' s Day, Martha Hall, Margery Reed, and Margaret Perkins were added to the group. Again, that year, the swimming team was National champion at the Telegraphic Meet, with Skidmo re second, and North- western University third. Having been the winner of the nationals the previous j ear also, they were qualified as Eastern Region sponsors. Two new national rec- ords were set: the 100-yard free style re- lay timed at 52.8 seconds by Dorothy Colburn, Martha Hall, Mary K. Haughey and Ruth Howarth Baer; and the 75-yard relay by Baer, Hall, and Colburn in 44.5 seconds. Then, after Ruth Howarth Baer had won the 100-yard backstroke set in 1:11.8 and the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:21.8, the Mass. State girls held four national records. In 1942-1943 Frances M. Gasson ' 43 entered her second year of managing the club, feeling fortunate that it was one of the few organizations on campus that did not sufl er severely from war eft ' ects. The water ballet was again staged at Freshman Play Day. Inter-house meets created a warm enthusiasm and swim- ming became foremost among girls ' sports at M.S.C. At the Telegraphic meet in March, 1943, Skidmore and the University of Pennsylvania won first and second places, while the team from State College won third. Ruth Baer broke her own record by swimming the 100-yard breaststroke in 1:19.4. This year, with Carolyn Whitmore ' 46 as manager, the Club, under the name, " The Naiads, " had as its aim the im- provement of strokes, formation swim- ming, and speed. Again, it presented the Play Day pageant. At the weekly meet- ings, games were played for practice and entertainment. An interclass meet was held, at which Barbara Cole was manager of the freshmen, Ethel Libby of the sopho- mores, Marjorie Huff and Barbara Burke of juniors and seniors combined. The meet, from which the junior-senior group emerged as champions, consisted of the following: 25-yard crawl, 25-yard back crawl, 50-yard back crawl, 100-yard comic relay, 100-yard free style, 25-yard breast- stroke, 75- yard medley relay, and diving. This year the girls plan to keep up the reputation won by the Men ' s Swimming Team of M.S.C. in the past, as well as their own. Now, as to whether the gentle art of navigating the human body through chlorine-colored H2O is conducive to streamlining said cellular structure so as to present a pleasing appearance, or not, may be deduced from a mere glance at the accompanying photographic evidence which is here exhibited as scientific proof of this commonly-held hypothesis. 4 0 Ut iXfUAje? 47 7 e Jte-Men. A year has passed since the campus reverberated with cheers of sports ' fans. Football games are only memories of sunny fall days and maroon sweatshirts of football players. Now M.S.C remem- bers plodding through snowdrifts to wit- ness basketball games in the cage, and reading of the victories of M.S.C. ' s track and swimming teams. Absence of varsity teams does not mean that the physical education department has stowed away its equipment and locked its doors for the duration. On the contrary, Curry Hicks, director of the department, reports that the building and facilities have been in constant use since the government sent 750 air cadets here. In the Army Air Force physical training program, the building is used ten hours in an eleven-hour day. In addition, the cadets may use it during open-post. The remaining hour, between five and six is important to M.S.C. ' s men, as they can then use the building and all the equipment. They can also organize teams for any sport desired. Freshman boys have their required " Physied " course then. However, the equipment may be used by M.S.C. students any time of the day if they wish to hold activities outside of the building. Proof that men ' s sports have not been stifled by the Army program, is found in the freshman swim- ming team which competed with several high schools this year, and in the intra- mural basketball tournaments. The " ole apple " isn ' t being swatted about this year, but the Index presents a short resume of the 1943 season, es- pecially for M.S.C. ' s few men. Although formal baseball was impos- sible, a small, enthusiastic squad took part in a satisfactory informal .schedule. The team was handicapped by lack of pitchers, only five in the squad, and only one with varsity experience. However, this was balanced by fair hitting and exceptional fielding. Coaching was cap- ably undertaken by Coach " Herb " Gill, while the manager was Elmer Clapp ' 44. Captain was catcher " Matty " Ryan ' 43. The season ' s battles included two easy victories over the Amherst College Junior Varsity at the hands of inexperienced pitcher Ray Kneeland ' 44 and freshman Joe Segel. The scores were 6-2, and 9-3. The next game was an 8-2 defeat by Fort Devens. However, three double plays, the three hits of shortstop Dick Maloy ' 43, a miraculous shoestring catch by freshman outfielder, Ed McGrath and throws to second by catcher Matty Ryan were all features of the game. The sea- son ' s successful conclusion was a sensa- tional 1-0 upset of Springfield College ' s winning team. The pitching assignment was handled by " Ted " Brutcher ' 44, who held the visitors to five hits that day. As in other games, superb fielding was re- sponsible for the fine showing. Because of the informality of the team, letters could not be awarded to all who would ordinarily be eligible. However, letters were awarded to " Les " Rich ' 43, Merwin " Spooks " Magnin ' 43, and Elmer Clapp, manager, on the basis of their previous varsity record. MC V i. ' ' The Homestead, model home .... One of the greatest problems presented by our changed campus, has been that of housing. Innumerable alterations were necessary to change a sufficient number of ex-fraternity houses into satisfactory girls ' dorms. Because of excellent co-operation and hard work, they are now functioning efficiently under the supervision of Professor Vondell. 2 o te Ud Me " Housemothers? What are they for? To keep us quiet when we want to talk, shoo away our men when we want to entertain, and make life generally miser- able? " " Well, maybe so. But that isn ' t what we coeds think this year, and we should know. We ' ve had housemothers enough — • eighteen of them of all sorts and sizes, ranging from ex-students to women who have spent years in South America or other fascinating places. " A " frarority " girl speaks: " ' What do we think of them ' ? That they ' re pretty swell. ' Why? ' Because they ' ve done so much for us. They ' ve helped us clean up the houses we were to live in, and brought their pictures and books and personal treasures to brighten up living rooms. Exam time came, and with it coffee and our favorite kinds of sandwiches to keep us awake since we would stay up. And later in the year, if we were found up studying at three in the morning, were we pre-emptorily sent to bed? No, a clucking of the tongue, a shake of the head, and the housemother faded away into darkness to return with a blanket for our feet and a box of crackers for our morale. " A sorority girl speaks: " Our opinion? Well, we heartily concur with all that the ' frarority ' girl says. In whom can we always confide our daily problems and be sure of receiving consolation? Why, the housemother. And when ' possessed ' by the various human ills, ranging from a simple headache to the ' clutches ' of the prevalent grippe, we can always count on her to see that we have proper care, relieving ' mother ' of the worry of her ' dotter ' wasting away to a shadow with no one to witness her sad demise. She ' s lots of fun — always good for a ' fourth ' at bridge and a cup of hot coffee afterwards to revive the ' gals ' who got ' set ' proper. She ' s interested in us — a real friend. Our blessings on the housemother! " This year ' s housemothers are: Mrs. Gertrude Bedell, Pi Beta Phi; Mrs. Henry Broughton, Kappa Sigma; Mrs. W. W. Buis, Alpha Gamma Rho; Mrs. Abby Jane Campion, Sigma Kappa; Mrs. Sara Coolidge, Homestead; Miss Doris Drury, Draper; Mrs. L. F. Eaton, Q.T.V.; Mrs. Thorkil Fog, Kolony Klub; Mrs. Morley S.

Where once boys ' battered bikes httered the lawn and porch, girls ' bikes lean against the house or stand on the sidewalk. Instead of the familiar thud of men ' s feet pouncing across the porch there comes the scuffling of women ' s loafers. Instead of " Alpha Gam " broth- ers tying ties, struggling into sweaters as they scramble for their eight o ' clock class- es, M.S.C. coeds come sauntering forth. The inside of the house, too, has under- gone a drastic change. It has been cleaned, painted, and repaired for occupancy by fifteen upperclass girls. Alpha Gamma Rho ' s first floor is composed of three com- fortable living rooms, and the quarters of Mrs. Frederick Buis, well-liked house- mother of the " frarority. " Second and third floors are used for studying and sleeping. The cellar serves as " rec " room, and the kitchen in the cellar affords a handy place to keep and prepare food for those important midnight snacks. Alpha Gamma Rho ' s notorious " bull " sessions have capitulated to the " gab " fests of a girl ' s dormitory. Counting the few boys at the Hillel House, there are now two male-inhabited fraternity houses. When North College became the home of half a hundred Officer Candidates, former M.S.C. mili-majors, in December, the male underclassmen moved to the Alpha Sigma Phi house. One of the first official acts was the changing of the name ; a shiny new " State House " sign now reposes over the front door. Since then, nine of the twenty " State Housemen " have gone into the services. Except for guests at the gala Christmas vie party, the house remained strictly a masculine stronghold — with one excep- tion — Ruler of the Roost was mascot Baroness Heddy, an English Bull. Probably banded together for protec- tion against the feminine hordes, they formed a compact, closely-knit, little group which contributed much to campus life this year, having two members in the Mikado and two on the Winter Carnival Committee. Officers elected at the be- ginning of the year were Dave Eldridge, President; George Little, Vice-President; George Fairchild, Secretary; and Bill Courchene, Treasurer. AlpJiXl SiCf 58 C. x:. It was " Cherchez la t ' emme! " when you entered Alpha Tau Gamma this fall, for something had been added. Gleaming new paint and feminine fripperies had put a new face on the forme r Stockbridge fraternity. A.T.G. was the center of much excite- ment at the time of the robbery (see page 136) for it was there the thief " lifted " $40 from one of the girls. Another " fra- ternity " sister saw a face at her window that fateful night. Seeking refuge from the ordeals of student life and the unfeminine parts of the house, the seventeen girls frequently visited the room of Miss Ethel Rowland, the housemother, who listened to all coed problems with an understanding mind. Decorating the house stairway was the skull of a cow with the initials A.T.G. written on its forehead — Altogether Too Gruesome as far as the inhabitants are concerned. Also notorious is the tele- phone, which is very public. The sighs that accompanied, " Why yes, I ' d love to! " were much too well-known to the sixteen housemates who lived behind the surrounding five doors. 7. 7. g. Stockbridge men, too, have left the hallowed halls of their domain — K.K. — to the coeds. Dismayed by its rundown appearance, some withdrew, but eight hardy souls stuck to their paint brushes. The girls scrubbed, painted, and var- nished. Their charming and co-operative housemother, Mrs. Thorkil Fog, lent a decorative hand and made new curtains, and slip-covers for the living room chairs. This room, with its attractive fireplace, is now a paragon of comfort and charm through everyone ' s help. Until frigid temperatures drove them in, the girls slept on the porch. A foraging expedition into the attic brought forth trophies for decoration. One enterprising young lady made use of a " reflector " arrow — commonly found in the possession of the State Highway Commission. Always on hand to help was friendly Mrs. Fog, who proved herself a good sport and jolly companion as well at K. K. ' s rollicking Hallowe ' en party. At the beginning of second semester, a few girls from other houses moved in and Carolyn Whitmore was chosen house- chairman to replace Ruth Howarth Baer when she graduated. 59 -.11 iniini ' un m Incredible, but true: Kappa Sigma, no- torious for its consistent lack, why, re- fusal, of men callers, a house of seriously minded diamond-wearers and students. The one steady guest is Kappa Sigma ' s house brother, who calls not only on his " gal " but on the entire 35 girls. Peggy Bishop is house chairman over thirty-two freshmen and three seniors. To help in their house cafeteria, presided over by Mrs. Graves, popular cook, the girls have established a system of co-oper- ative waitress duty. In each of the second and third floor dorms, the coeds have pushed their double-deckers together in sets of three, so that five or six girls can occupy one bed. During finals week, they slept in shifts of half an hour in a rotating manner which kept the lights burning and the girls grinding all night. Freshman fancies! Kappa Sigma has come to recognize strange stirrings at dawn, gratefully, as Mrs. Broughton thoughtfully rises to turn on the heat before sleepy eight o ' clock fans shiver toward the bath room. During Mrs. Broughton ' s unfortunate absence due to ill health, Mrs. Loomis, her substitute, won the girls with candy. 60 JlantMaxi Qlu Lambda Chi is no exception to pre- vailing fraternity invasion, and halls once sacred to the male element are being called " home " by nearly thirty upper- class girls. The rooms have gone through a transformation to be expected with the advent of the skirted population. In the study rooms especially, bright new cur- tains have been hung, windows scrubbed, and even rugs laid! Pictures of men in uniform (not Vic Mature) have taken over the Varga Girl ' s position of honor. The success of the change has been due in no small part to the housemother, Miss Lucy Thayer. One thing unchanged, however, is the hospitality extended to all. Open house is held every evening until eight o ' clock for the special benefit of State ' s air students. " Vic " parties are on the list to keep up the morale of both soldiers and civilians, but in these, the famed fraternity vic- party " blackouts " will go down under the coed thumb, and the multicolored bulbs will be tossed in the ash can. Lambda Chi is also the weekly ren- dezvous of the Quadrangle Club, who invite faculty members to their meetings to better student-faculty relationships. 2. v. V. At Q.T.V. in September, the ladies finally gained entry into the sanctum sanctorum of the fraternity brothers. Instead of masculine monstrosities, tiny feminine feet trod the spacious lawn; and magazines had changed from Esquire to Vogue — at least according to the evidence scattered in the parlor. As their predecessors had done, the twenty-one girls slept on two levels on the third floor amid the groans and squeaks of the 40-odd-year old house. Occasionally a little excitement was produced. In the middle of one night, the girls were awak- ened by blood-curdling screams and " leaped from their beds " just in time to see one of their number take to the stairs in record time. They followed, demanding to know the cause of the disturbance. The nearly hysterical revelation of the advent of a bat resulted in a mass exodus to the lower regions. The coeds living in Q.T.V. were for- tunate in having for their housemother gracious and lovely Mrs. Eaton, and capable Sybil Minkin for house chairman; and, more materially, a muralled rec- room. Upon entering the S.A.E. house with a visitor ' s inquisitive politeness, some of the feminine inhabitants will attempt to show off the modernly-equipped kitchen with the ironing board (object of pil- grimage from A.T.G.); the penthouse of two proud roommates; the absence of double deckers in the dormitory; the green light that is kept burning all night as in " the third degree torture chamber. " Stories are prevalent about the nocturnal tiptoeings to trace the snorers, who are invariably soothed to silence by the floor creaking under the snoopers. Downstairs, the girls have large study rooms, in which three or four roommates combine a dozen radio programs, includ- ing those from A.T.G. by means of open doors and windows. Here, too, they enjoy the coziness of having one closet — with a tie rack — for four girls. Desp ite this apparent incongruity, the S.A.E. feminine inhabitants realize a home through the thoughtful guidance and attention of their housemother, Mrs. Ernestine Reed; and live as happily as fifteen girls can. s. A. e. 61 7. C. p. " Can ' t we paint it dusky rose? It ' d look so much more cheerful at 6:30 in the morning. " — " But maybe the boys like it pea green and royal blue. " — " Oh, gee, Mrs. Linton. " — " Well, I ' ll see what I can do. " So forth goes the emissary, T.E.P. ' s housemother, to the higher powers, to do battle for the decorative taste of her brood of coeds. They still brush their teeth in a sickly green atmosphere each morning, but there icere improvements. T.E.P. house had its face lifted by application of soap and water, new drapes, and a cheerful picture here and there. Only one thing was lacking. Then came Junior and Jimmy and their G. I. pals, and life for the T.E.P. girls was quite complete (almost too much so when an ungallant G.I. started popping out from behind sofas to see how the Tepites looked on the " morning after " New Year ' s Eve.) It was, however, a peaceful life in the main, though second floor ablutions embarrassed first floor social life and first floor good night hand- shakes occasionally awoke third floor greasy grinds. For hearty hospitality, may it long be remembered that " T.E.P. was Hep. " Theta Chi is in the novel situation of being the only fraternity house on campus to have an equal number of freshman and upperclass women living together. Ob- viously, this proved to be a bug in the carefully laid rushing plans of the Pan- hellenic Council. As a result, it ruled that for the duration of rushing, upperclass girls living in the house were to have nothing to do with the frosh, thus creating a difficult situation, easily understood by anyone who has attempted to completely ignore another person who eats, sleeps, and studies under the same roof. Mrs. Dorothy Phillips, who was house- mother at North College last year, is housemother at Theta Chi this year. She is well-known for the active and sympathetic interest she takes in every one of her charges. A cafeteria has been opened in Theta Chi which feeds forty girls of all four classes who live not only in the house, but in nearby fraternity houses. Es- pecially gleeful are those damsels who spent the summer contemplating the joys of climbing up Butterfield hill in a Feb- ruai-y blizzard for a meal. Ueta QUi 62 2 i4S pje BuilerV eU llouse Butterfield House is the place from which coeds coasted down the hill, last year, during the " ice days, " and to which mud-caked summer school dungarees panted home from after-class work on the farm, last summer. The freshman girls ' dormitory, its situation is particularly appropriate. The view from the terrace — campus and valley — furnishes material for sentimental dissertations on sunsets to which only freshman themes can do justice in their gushy rapture. With Mrs. Whipple ' s housemotherly help, the girls provide for the cadets a cheerful place to spend free time. Butterfield is the house with corridors that are periodically blocked with maple furniture and stuffed animals, while half- dressed roommates slide over the floor within on black-and-blue knees and a little wax. Besides being officially fresh- man dorm and a dining hall, Butterfield is regarded with personal affection as the house on the hill, from which troups of coeds come singing to Social Union programs. Despite its 150-gal capacity, Butterfield was able to hold but two- thirds of the freshmen. BidHe i id At five o ' clock in the morning, the clanging milk cans are the daily seren- aders of the fifteen girls living at Draper. The discordant clangor presents itself as warning to the girls that six o ' clock is approaching. At this time, the drowsy damsels arise to serve the seven hundred fifty soldiers of the 58th College Training Detachment in Draper Dining Hall. Theirs is the responsibility of satisfying the gastronomical needs of the cadets. In a sense, these girls are regimented, as they must not only be students in col- lege but must also adjust themselves to working a number of hours at each meal. The cycle of work, study, sleep is broken only by nightly " discussion groups, " which invariably consider what " that cute cadet in Company C " said. Many of the girls relinquish their own vacations to see that the holiday-less cadets are fed; and on Christmas they gladly gave up their time to create decorations and suitable atmosphere for the soldiers who are far from home. Co-operation, necessary to systematized work, has broken down any barriers which might have existed. Hence, the atmos- phere is the friendliest on campus. 63 QoUeae, North College, headquarters of the " Ec " Department and site of the C- Store, used to be a girls ' dorm. When the Air Corps occupied the dormitories and girls took over the fraternity houses, MEN invaded North College. They were to lead no peaceful life. In the middle of the first semester, forty-five R.O.T.C. majors returned to campus while waiting for places at the Officers ' Candidate School in Georgia. The girls greeted them with enthusiasm, and the North College fellows moved to the fourth floor. Thence they could be seen filing every morning before eight o ' clock, armed with towel and tooth brush, to their basement bath room. Then, too, some moved to Alpha Sigma Phi, now " State House. " When the R.O.T.C. left unexpectedly, a month after its arrival, the civilians moved back to the second floor. Then one joined the Naval Air Corps and another was stationed with the A-12 program at Amherst College. At present, eleven fresh- men share the house with two upper class- men welcomed back from service — Arnold Murray and Stanley Sherman. The inhabitants of North College es- pecially pride themselves on having been the leaders in what they call " the revolt against the Senate. " During hazing week, there was disagreement with the Senate ' s verdict at a freshman trial at which the dunking sentence was pronounced. Half of the freshmen present at the execution were inhabitants of North College and took part in turning the tables on the sophs. For intellectual stimulation. North College commonly adjourns to its house library, the barber shop. Down past the Abbey on North Pleasant Street stands a typical old New England farmhouse that has been there over two hundred years watching Am- herst, and particularly Massachusetts State College, since its founding. Once, this was the college farmhouse, but now it is the Homestead, practice house for seniors majoring in Home Economics. Every six weeks sees about eight seniors moving in and out of this pre- Revolutionary house. Here the girls learn to put into the actual practice of every- day living the theory that they have gathered in the last three years. The girls plan balanced meals and prepare them in the scientifically planned kitchen. They do the marketing and take complete care of the house. Each girl has an opportunity to be " homemaker " ; that is, to direct the group under the able leadership of Mrs. Coolidge who presides as house- mother and counselor to the girls. While they live in the Homestead, the Home Ec-ers make interesting studies and experiments to test their own effi- ciency in meal preparation and time planning. Especially stressed is the plan- ning of well balanced meals on various actual-cost levels. But the Homestead is not only a place, for seniors. About once a week, early in the morning, members of the junior class may be seen entering to prepare early breakfast for the still slumbering resi- dents. Many of the Home Economics Club meetings are held in this model home atmosphere, and annually the clothing classes display their latest creations at a tea given here at the center of all the Home Ec-er activities. 64 Dean " Wee Willie " Machmer . . . one of the solid, unchanging things the seniors will remember about their Alma Mater. Now, instead of the safe, dependable routine of classes and labs, C-Store coke fests and bull-sessions, the Class of 1944 faces a weary, war-damaged world in need of youthful energy, noble ideals, and high hearts.

Achncuidedcf fpe l The Board of The 1944 Index in a Woman ' s World wishes to thank the following for their admirable spirit of co-operation. Professor John H. Vondell contributed the frontispiece, the shot of the Memorial Room fireplace, the " State House " and Quadrangle groups, the portrait of Edith Lincoln, and that of Queen Elaine. Doctor Theodore C. Caldwell contributed the dedication admirably expressing M.S.C. out-of-the- Services ' feelings towards M.S.C. in-the-Services. George " Red " Emery of the Alumni Office furnished the pictures and information on the Alumnae. President Hugh P. Baker sent the Index a message that emphasized M.S.C. ' s help in the war effort, and seconded the Board ' s opinion that 1943-44 is a woman ' s year on campus. Doctor Vernon P. Helming of the Division of Liberal Arts wrote on the ideals of the Phi Beta Kappa; and Doctor Leon Bradley of the Division of Physical and Biological Sciences on Sigma Chi. " Kay " Tully of the College News Service presented the Index with a lovely scene of the Rhododendron Garden and the graduation picture. Doctor Maxwell H. Goldberg, Index literary advisor, calmed the exuberant enthusiasm of the Editor- in-Chief down to a working level, and inspired the Board to strive for accuracy in the interest of future historians. Professor Lawrence S. Dickinson, financial advisor, not only provided an example of indefatigable energy, but figured out proportions for senior informals and was figuratively a handy shoulder for upset editors. " Hermie " Gottesman contributed the pictures of the Freshman fishing party, the Carolers, and Sigma Kappa House. " Bettye " Huban volunteered an afternoon ' s typing; Elmer Clapp wrote of baseball; and " Kits " Thayer contributed two articles. Other students besides " Ellie " Dudl ey and Board Members wrote articles for the " Memories " section, but as the subjects treated were professors, pseudonyms have been used in the interest of normal faculty- student relations. Harold Johnson of Andover Press was generous with helpful suggestions, and technical information about fitting titles to the pages. Margaret Saunders of Greylock Photo-Engraving Company made the question of cuts and such even enjoyable. Arthur Alvin, South Hadley photographer, took pictures about campus just as directed, and made sure M.S.C. ' s coeds looked their glamorous best. Underclassmen made rapid social adjustments to the army-invaded campus. . . .Through the efforts of the U.S.O. successful dances have pro- moted friendly relationships between underclass women and air students. In academic adjustments they have gladly given up classrooms and labora- tories, and have attended classes at unusual hours so that the army program might run smoothly. 444Mi Jean Esther Abelein, " Jean.

To compensate for loss of intercol- legiate games and other traditions, many students participated in extracurricular activities this year. They find enjoyment in working for literary pub- lications, dramatic and music societies, which are Academic Activities and thus profitable in credits toward the coveted Academic Activities pins. e4fUnU v o vce A oua Despite many war-time obstacles, the Collegian is one tradition that Massa- chusetts State College has carried fore- ward with little outward sign of change. However, the inner workings have gone through quite a revolution. Barbara Pullan, ' 45, the second woman ever to hold the position of Editor-in-chief, has carried her responsibility with an ease and enthusiasm worthy of a veteran. Editor Pullan was at the disadvantage, as was the rest of the weekly ' s staff, that there were few, if any, of the old guard left (Pun on national situation possible here!), to advise and assist at the crucial times. For the first time in the history of the College, the Collegian ' s staff has been predominatingly feminine. When elections were held early this March, students became even more con- vinced that this is a woman ' s world, on campus, at least. Editor Pullan was chosen to fill, for another year, the post that she had so faithfully held this past year; Alma Rowe was appointed Asso- ciate Editor. Irmarie Scheuneman be- came Managing Editor, to be assisted by Pauline Lambert. Kay Dellea was re- appointed Collegian secretary. For the first time in the history of the paper, as far as is known, a freshman, Rosemary Speer, became News Editor. Lonely male, Dick March was re-elected Business Manager. Keeping in step with the times, a new column has appeared on page two of this year ' s Collegian. Not only does State keep in touch with her sons in the service by sending them the Collegian regularly, but she also has Joe Kunces tracking down their latest activities, adventures, and addresses. Joe also records the visits made to the campus by State ' s warriors. " Did you read the ' Side-lines ' this Romm. Miss Nejame, Miss Thomas, Epstein, Binder, Klein.

" seems to be the general comment upon the newest column where anything and everything goes . . into print. Carol Goodchild and her beloved pal, Donkeydust, are co-editors of this masterpiece of humor, burlesque and satire all rolled into one short weekly column. Nothing is too small, too trivial, to escape the attention of these writers; even the ever-present puddle between Draper and Stockbridge has gained fame and recognition through them. During the first semester, Bob Young ' s column, " Musical Revue, " greatly inter- ested the music lovers on campus. Here could be found news of concerts sched- uled for Amherst and surrounding towns. Bob kept track of what the critics were saying and thinking, and passed this on to his fellow students. " Quarterly Clippings, " now a regular weekly feature of the Collegia?! made its debut as a result of war-time factors making impossible the publication of a separate magazine as in former years. Instead of discontinuing the literary efforts of the campus for the duration, the Collegian agreed to cooperate and each week on page four is found quite a sizeable section devoted to the more literary type of writing. Believing that we know too little about our own professors, there is a new oifering in the Collegian called " Faculty. " Each week, the column ' s writer does a combin- ation character sketch and biography of some member of the faculty in an at- tempt to make the student more familiar with the professors on campus, and know them as human beings, not as classroom robots that lecture five and a half days a week. " Co-editing " is still carried on in all its pertinence or, as some think, im- pertinence. In this column, is a definite reflection of co-ed opinion and the frank presentation of the feminine point of view. Many of the co-ed ' s problems are dis- cussed in this column, and often, it might be called " advice to the feminine ele- ment. " Since Ruth Sperry ' s retirement, great secrecy has been maintained about who wields the pen behind this feature. With all the current interest in the post-war future and what it holds in store, the Collegian has a new angle with a column called " Yesterdays, " recounting events in the opposite direction, the past. Present-day students are really amazed at the long-ago vitality of the little college at the northern end of the country town, Amherst; and the writer deserves a great deal of credit for thumbing through archives to dig out this information. Despite the difficulties that it faced, the Collegian Staff has conscientiously written up Massachusetts State College ' s weekly history, as is evidenced by the " midnight mazda " burned consistently in the basement of Memorial Building. Yet, like the Index Board, the Collegian Staff gets little recognition for its efforts. Salud, amigas! iadJUfu tUe actl 113 GoUej(fe Milton4f UnxMxjJi. The 1944 Index Board would have been inconceivable before the World War, when only a handful of women had braved the masculine stares of Massa- chusetts Agricultural College. In fact, it was not until 1940 that the Index had its first woman editor, Edith " Micky " Clark; and she had only four women on her staff, including Lois Doubleday (now Mrs. Kuralowicz) and Meg Marsh, who were later to be Editor-in-chief and Photographic Editor respectively of the 1942 Index, but Micky ' s board had twenty-one men! Just as the number of women in the student body of Massa- chusetts State College almost equalled that of men just before the War of the Four Freedoms began, the Index Board was about equally divided then, with male ideas still dominant through the force of tradition. But when most of M.S.C. ' s men marched off to military action, the Index Board, like Byron, woke up to find itself — not famous, but feminine. It also discovered that its campus world had become strikingly feminine, had shaken oft ' some of the shackles of shan ' ts long established by a masculine student body, and that the 5= = yearbook had a chance to mirror this historically interesting change of sex. As planned and directed by Editor-in- chief Annette (Twink) Bousquet, the 1944 Index was written from the wom- an ' s angle. In the Literary realm, ruled by Ruth Murray, there was a Mementoes section of memories women would like to redream in future years, a page of nostalgic, and still, a page of flip- pant remembrance; articles of women ' s interest such as those on the swimming club, girl ' s gym, housemothers; and other articles — summer session, frosh hazing, and alumni — slanted to the coed ' s view- point. In the Statistics department, headed by hard-working Sally Boyden, the personal touches beloved of women — nicknames and descriptive phrases — made their appearance; and dry statis- tics (darling of the male) were eliminated as far as possible. As for illustrations, newcomer Connie Dorgan ' s pen was lightly satiric — and altogether feminine. In her drawings the same tender or teas- ing humor which peeked from headlines and " boo! " ed from articles made itself very clearly visible. Beulahmae Kolb, dynamic, blond Busi- ness Manager, and her assistants, Ellen (Red Efficiency) Kane, and new member Ruth Reynolds, attended to the Board ' s business dealings — buying the cover, scheduling senior portraits and campus shots with the 1944 Index photographer, selling advertisements, taking orders for books on into April — with feminine methods and business success. Other members of the Board were Lee Filios, Associate Editor, who wrote edi- torial letters to absent students and the Board ' s non-College associates, and filed the informal snapshots of the seniors; Literary members, Kay Dellea and Marie 114 A nd Jjed lioKJCj. Hauck; and newly-elected writers, Ele Bryant, Lois Banister, " Jidge " Gould, " McGee " O ' Hagerty, and Eva Schiffer who slaved in that ascending order; Statistics members, Ethel Whitney, Dotty Beach, Midge Gunther, and Mary Carney and newly-elected statisticians Barbara Crowther, Ellie Nason, Nancy Newell, and Millie Griffiths. All worked, in the Index ' s corner of the College War Information Service room, to make the " woman ' s yearbook " an annual that could be compared only favorably with those published before the men left and after they return. In this they had the assistance of two com- panies. The Andover Press of Andover, and Greylock Photo-Engraving Company of North Adams, who repeated the good work they had done the previous year; and the help of a new photographer. South Hadley ' s noted Arthur Alvin. The only male influence on " The 1944 Index in a Woman ' s World " was that furnished by the advisory reins of Doctor Maxwell H. Goldberg, and the financial brake of Professor Lawrence S. Dickin- son. Thus the Index reflects a war-year on campus through the eyes of women left behind. War is also apparent in the small number of photographs, due to the copper and film shortage, and the sub- sequent substitution of sketches, which are line-cuts, and thus processed with the more-abundant metal, zinc. And the greedy maw of war, has reduced, too, the student fees on which the Index budget is based, and thus the slimness of this volume which hopes to claim quality — even to its pre-war paper, please note — if not quantity. Whitney. Dellea, Beach. Hauck, Boyden Gunther, Filios, Bousquet, Kolb, Murray 115 In 1936, the Collegian Quarterly was born as a literary supplement to the Collegian. Then, with growth of interest in things more literary than agricultural, it metamorphosed into a separate booklet issued thrice yearly in its own covers. This year, the Quarterly again appeared as one sheet inserted in the Collegian — but only because of the war-drawn limits of the Collegian budget rather than because of any lack of interest and spirit among readers and contributors. In this very emergency, the strength of the Quarterly idea, that of a literary organ to reflect the ideas of the portion of the student body literarily-creative, proved itself. Last year ' s editorial board had adjourned to the war; but under the guidance of Dr. Maxwell H. Goldberg, its faculty advisor since it came into being, a group who believed in the Quarterly met to read, discuss, and select contributions for a potential issue. An executive board, consisting of David Balise ' 47, chairman; Roberta Miehlke ' 44, secretary; Barbara Cross ' 46, Jason Kirshen ' 46, and Eva Schifl er ' 46, was elected to compose the issue. After four two-hour sessions, the material selected by fifteen to twenty students was turned over to the editorial board, who prepared the two-page issue. Though, because of lack of funds, there could be no second issue of the Quarterly this year, the gen- erous interest of the Collegian dedicated a weekly section to " Quarterly Clip- pings, " articles for which there was not enough room in the issue. The Quarterly is a mosaic. Its contribu- tions are of many sizes and forms, of vary- ing brilliance and color. It strives for excellence; but, as a mosaic, it seeks artistic balance. Poetry and fiction — short stories and character sketches; critical and familiar essays, serious, whimsical, and satiric — all these compose it. Written by undergraduates, faculty members, aviation students, and alumni, some in the Armed Forces as far away as India and the Middle East, — written by that part of M.S.C. with an urge for written expression, these bits of literary tile make for the mosaic which is the Quarterly. The Quarterly needs more than the interest of contributors and critics and the patience of compilers. An artistic effort, it needs the effort of all writers to make it grow; the appreciation of all readers to want it and judge it. Only then is the Quarterly ' s creative circle complete. In April, election of the 1945 Board was held with those chosen determined to carry out the Quarterly policy decided this year. 116 Pe i pjetucd P voftjaxjXiAida The familiar maroon-and-white " M " book, edited by the S.C.A., gave the freshmen information about the customs and campus of Massachusetts State Col- lege again this year under such headings as Religious Activities, Student Govern- ment, Academic Activities, Traditions and Customs, and Sports. M.S.C., as usual indoctrinated its newest members. If a freshman girl wondered, wide-eyed, about some detail of fall or spring rush- ing, she had only to turn to that section headed " Social Activities " to find com- plete Rushing Regulations. Convenient, too, was " Who ' s Who at M.S.C. " by which the unenlightened could learn the names, at least, of some of the campus celebrities. Under " Music, " the so- inclined members of the newest class could find " vital statistics " concerning musical organizations. Pictures of the various governmental groups aided in orientation. Invaluable, too, to the be- wildered class of ' 47, was the guide map of the campus with its helpful key, and pictures of buildings. The board is made up of students in- terested in writing for the " M " book, each choosing his own assignment. This year the Frosh Bible was compiled by a staff consisting of Anne Stafford and Claire Healy, Co-Editors; Hyman Hersh- man, Business Manager; Mary Jane Bolton, Marjorie Brett, Barbara Cross, John Delevoryas, Diane Kelton, Florence Melnick, Anne Merrill, Eleanor Nason, Eleanor Rockwood and Helen Timson, Editorial Board; Lucy King and Phoebe Wood, Business Board; and Rev. W. Burnet Easton, Faculty Advisor. Despite greatly reduced membership, this is the second year that the Debating Club has continued under the able direc- tion of Mr. Mark Rand, debating coach at Northampton High School. President Emerson Hibbard ' 46, and Managers Roger Richards ' 46 and Genevieve Novo ' 46 are striving for an expansion and strengthening of the club. At weekly meetings, the members Roger Richards ' 46, Ruth Reynolds ' 46, Jason Kirshen ' 46, Joseph Kunces ' 45, Jack Blalock ' 46, Genevieve Novo ' 46, and Emerson Hibbard ' 46 test their forensic ability through intra-club de- bates. A sample was presented at the January 13th convocation, in the form of a debate on the subject, " Resolved: That an international police force should be established after the war. " The club lost Richard Joyce ' 46, former president, to the Army in January. Though lack of transportation re- stricted inter-collegiate debates, a debate was held here against Rhode Island State College. 117 Femininity took over the Roister Dois- ters, State ' s dramatic society, this year just as every other campus Academic Activity was transformed. Lack of actors and over abundance of actresses led to the temporary aboHshment of the customary Inter-class Play Competition Social Union program. In its place, Ophelia Takes the Cup, written, directed, produced, and acted by M.S.C. students, provoked roars of laughter. A satire on campus life, the play was based on a fictitious sorority, Omicron Xi, as it conducted its rushing, cattily reviewing the prospective ad- vantages and disadvantages of having Susie Freshman as one of their hallowed society. Entwined in the story, were exaggerated pictures of an informal con- vocation, daytime library study, busy- body housemothers, college store, both as a rendezvous and as a place for long hours and hard work, a freshman dormi- tory in its confusion, and cadets. The suc- cessful satire was produced through the efforts of Professor Rand, club advisor; Pauline Bell and Ruth Steele, authors; Lee Filios and Kim Strong, creators and directors of the dances; and Shirley Spring, stage manager. Officers this year were: Pauline Bell, President; Lee Filios, Vice-President. Members were Helen Murray, Martha Treml, Roberta Miehlke, Betty Huban, Mary Quinn, Doris Roberts, Kay Dellea, Lucille Chaput, Betty Mentzer, Kim Strong, Ruth Ewing, Barbara Bigelow, Shirley Spring, Ruth Steele, Connie Scott, Elaine Jones, Alice Motyka, Dor- othy Morton, Daphne CuUinan, Jason Kirshen, George Fairfield, James Coffey, Ruth Symonds, Ray HoUis, Jean Gould, Albert Caron, George Pushee, Hyman Edelstein, Virginia LaPlante, Mary Vir- ginia Rice, Esther Goldstein, Dorothea Smith, Dorothea Beach, Frances Judd, Irmarie Scheuneman, and Herman Got- tesman. Shakespeare ' s Love ' s Labour ' s Lost was given the 29th of April and at Com- mencement. Intriguingly stylized, the play was presented in all its unrealistic, euphuistic comedy to the spring-fevered audience. 118 The instrumental group of Massachu- setts State College, the Sinfonietta, this year has contributed its efforts toward developing soloists and perfecting the difBcult art of accompaniment. The first and only project undertaken this year by the Sinfonietta as a group was the important task of rehearsing the score of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, " The Mikado. " The success of the per- formance was in large part due to the ability of the Sinfonietta members in co- operating with principals and chorus. Fine accomplishment has been shown in supplying soloists for campus affairs and numerous concerts held in nearby towns, thus bettering the reputation of M.S.C. ' s talent. The Cadet Band has been thankful for the contribution of Barbara Beals ' 47 and her trumpet. John Delevoryas ' 46, who distinguished himself last year as a freshman pianist, presented a joint concert with Doric Alviani as a Fine Arts program, and played a special arrangement of Ravel ' s " Pavanne " with the Glee Club as a background at their concert, " My Coun- try. " Claire Healy ' 46 and her violin have become well established in many campus clubs, especially on the radio as participant in 4-H Club programs. The organization, composed of many M. £. e. more girls than boys this year, chose this sophomore as their concertmistress. Reg- ular rehearsals of the Sinfonietta were held in the Memorial Hall on Wednesday evenings under the direction of Doric Alviani. " Sinfoniers " and their instruments were as follows : Claire Healy, violin, concertmistress; Audrey Townsend, cello; Ruby Almgren, tuba; Cecilia Hansen, violin; Dorothy Barrett, flute; Faith Jillson, flute; Gladys Geiger, violin; Nancy Love, clarinet; Barara Beals, trumpet; Lorna Calvert, cello; Richard Swan, trombone; Jane Turner, clarinet; Natalie Hay ward, vio- lin; Jane Londergan, violin; Joseph Cohen, clarinet; Carol White, violin; Amy Clark, trombone; Dana Jost, trom- bone; Dorothy Holly, oboe; Jean Cum- mings, clarinet; John Delevoryas, piano. 119 Just as women seem to have taken the men ' s places almost everywhere else, so they have in campus music. First big event for the Women ' s Glee Club after the fall operetta (see page 122), was the Social Union concert, " My Country, " during the Winter Carnival. The Glee Club opened the program singing " My Country " with Ruth Steele as narrator. Then the coeds ' ver- satility was really shown. Soloists Ruth Steele and Betty Bates provided the humorous element while Lucille Chaput and Irene Strong carried on where Joe Courriveau had left off in the spirituals last year. The male contingent did well with John Delevoryas combining with the Glee Club to score a hit with " Pa- vanne " and Jimmy Coffey, complete Misses Timson.

Chaput, Hyatt, LeClaire, Miehlke with nightgown and cap, following suit to bring down the house with " Dangerous Dan McGrew. " The Glee Club also lent their support to Jean Thomas and Roberta Miehlke in a duet, and soloist Elaine Schultz. Carrying on in their accustomed role though reduced to three, Bea Decatur, Lee Hodges and Barbara Bird, the Statettes, " gave out " with " People Will Say We ' re in Love " and a superb arrangement of " St. Louis Blues. " The customary sextette, the Bay Sta- tettes, were back in action this year with Lucille Lawrence, Betsy Tilton, Jean Thomas, Barbara Baird, Mary Milner and Betty Bates. First they convulsed the audience with " The Martins and the Coys " and then impressed them with Shostakovitz ' s " United Nations. " The coeds again replaced the men when an octet, known as the " Statesmenettes, " took the place vacated by the Statesmen. The Statesmenettes are Wilma Winberg, Marguerite Krackhardt, Eleanor Mon- roe, Ruth Murray, Dorothy Johnson, :t f t ' irff f s 5 ft « i»: ' %% Xl I S f f f t t I- 120 Martha Harrington, Rosemary Jeffway and Marie Hauck, who did a " sharp job " on " Johnny Comes Marching Home. " The Glee Club, Statettes and Betty Bates put everything they had into the lilting, catchy tunes from " Oklahoma " to finish the performance on a high note. In the " Mikado, " too, the dearth of males was evident. The role of Pish-Tush, usually male, was jointly handled by Lee Hodges as Pish and Barbara Bird as Tush — or maybe it was the other way around — anyway, they did it ! The chorus of nobles, too, though as lusty as ever before, had amazingly high-pitched voices. Women ' s music came brilliantly into its own in the March production of " Hansel and Gretel. " The special adapta- tion of the opera by Humperdinck was produced with an all-girl cast and chorus, of which half were Hansels and half Gretels. The scenery was simple but effective and the action was limited, novelly enough, to the principals. Grand Central Station was next as the club presented " My Country " to the New York alumni in the Hotel Roose- velt. Then the girls entertained at the famous Stage Door Canteen. On April 21, the hospitalized men of Westover Field said of the girls and their concert, " They ' re all right! " Doric was justly proud. Again, Glee Club aspirants in the freshman class donned the maroon robes so familiar to Vesper-goers to provide a beautiful musical background to the religious services every Simday afternoon in Memorial Hall. This womanly year, the voices were all feminine, emphasizing even in religion that the 1943-1944 M.S.C. campus is a woman ' s world. But Vespers is not the only place these hardworking freshmen were heard blend- ing their voices. Doric Alviani in his convocation program, " Fresh Music, " presented his choir in their first appear- ance on the stage of Bowker Auditorium offering the popular " People Will Say We ' re in Love, " " You M ay Tell Them Father, " an early American hymn tune, and " Oh Holy Father. " There again on Scholarship Day they rendered very effec- tively the New England folk tune, " Oh Bury Me Not on the Deep Sea. " As traditionally at Christmas Vespers, the Glee Club and Choir again combined their talents. They presented " O Holy Night " and arrangements of Christmas carols. 121 no H, Mocked apxuM, to. GUMkood aiMflanA This year saw the breaking of two precedents in connection with operettas. For the first time, a Gilbert and SulHvan operetta was repeated, wlien the " Mi- kado " was produced in December. The second precedent was smashed by the production of two operettas in one year when " Hansel and Gretel " was put on in March. As usual though, Doric di- rected. The " Mikado " was produced under many handicaps, not the least of which wa s the shortage of men. Some of the girls successfully substituted for tenors and basses in the male chorus, however, and enough enterprising young men were found to take the principal male roles. The rest of the girls were shy and innocent little " maids from school " and proved very adept in the use of their fans. The leads were taken by Bea Decatur as Yum-Yum and John Weidhaas as Nanki Pooh who made a fetching pair of sweethearts. This " man and maid " were supported by Jean Thomas as Katisha, the villainess, horrifying and shrewish; Abe Reisman as Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner; Donald Schurman as the impressive if slightly screwy Mikado; Steve Waldron, pompous and padded, as Pooh-Bah, Lord High Everything Else; versatile Betty Bates as Pitti-Sing, Ruth Steele as Peep-Bo; and Lee Hodges and Barbara Bird sharing the role of Pish- Tush, usually a male undertaking. In the first performance, of the operetta, Lucille Chaput did an impressive job of substi- tuting as Peep-Bo when Ruth Steele was in the infirmary. The unobtrusive Sinfonietta accom- panied the chorus and principals alike with its usual skill. Margarete Ziegengeist was in charge of the costuming and Kim Strong supervis- ed the exceptionally well-done make-up. The second operetta, a special adapta- tion of Humperdinck ' s " Hansel and Gretel " was presented in March with an all-girl cast. The parts of Hansel and Gretel were taken by Betty Bates and Ruth Steele, respectively, and were done with a finesse which left nothing to be desired. The Cookie Witch, addicted to baking little children into cookies, was portrayed with skill by Wilma Winberg. Betsy Tiltion took the part of the children ' s mother and Lucille Chaput was a lusty father. Elaine Schultz, Jean Thomas, and Bea Decatur were fine Sandmen; and Marguerite Krackhardt, Lee Hodges, and Ruth Symonds were Dewmen. Witches were Patricia Bangs, Delight Bullock, Esther Coffin; and the Angels Jean Cummings, Barbara Davis, Mar- jorie Flint, Elaine Jones, Betty Julian, Jane Londergan, Pauline Morlock, Laura Resnick, Connie Rothery, Louise Sharp, Frances White, Patricia Bangs, Delight Bullock and Esther Coffin. The Cookie Children, enacted by the Glee Club, stayed in the orchestra pit. The scenery was anything but elab- orate, being all " flats " and merely sug- gesting the setting, but the lighting played an important and effective part. With a surprisingly few number of rehearsals, the operetta proved a shining success. Some of the particularly memor- able scenes were the enchanting little dancing scene and the beloved " Evening Prayer. " The Physi-Ed. Department ' s " Flit " classes provided the groups of dancers, who did praiseworthy work. 122 Wednesday evening, October 20th, the Social Union season opened with a pre- sentation by Ted Shawn, internationally known dancer. He opened with a lecture on the development of the dance, follow- ing the decline of this plastic art upon the rise of the Christian church through to its rebirth in America after the Civil War. Mr. Shawn then demonstrated his ability in a series of dances based upon religious themes and various folk dances. October 28th, M.S.C. once again bene- fited by the presence of a talented artist. Lillian Gish, noted star of stage and screen, gave an autobiographical lecture entitled " Odyssey of a Trouper. " She recalled several anecdotes from her acting career and travels, and answered many questions from the audience. The third program, presented on the evening of November 16th, was a varia- tion from any previous entertainments, or any to come, for the artist was the nine- year-old prodigy, Richard Korbel. How- ever, knee socks and Eton suit proved no limitation of pianistic ability, as his rendi- tions of Scarlatti, Bach, and Chopin proved. A noted American sculptor, Randolph Johnston, lectured in Bowker Auditorium on December 9th to an enthusiastic audi- ence. As he discussed the difference be- tween two and three-dimensional art, he sketched and modeled a bust to illustrate his points. Dr. Adrian H. Lindsey, head of the Department of Agricultural Eco- nomics, and well-known, especially to the Wesley Foundation group, was the " vic- tim. " Mr. Johnston is a noted author and illustrator as well as being an emi- nent sculptor. The first Social Union of the new year originated with the students themselves, when on February 5th, the Roister Doisters presented " Ophelia Takes the Cup, " an hilarious satire on campus life. (See the article on Roister Doisters.) The play was skillfully bound together by burlesques of well-known campus places and personalities, such as the College Store, the Libe, and Dean Burns. Not forgotten in the production were the air students, several of whom generously donated their services to add to the suc- cess of the presentation. The last evening program of the year was another student-produced entertain- ment. Opening the Winter Carnival Weekend, on February 18th the Glee Club produced a concert entitled " My Coun- try. " (See articles on the Women ' s Glee Club, Winter Carnival, and Events of the Year.) Songs from the Broadway produc- tion " Oklahoma, " were featured — songs which, oddly enough, returned to New York when the Glee Club sang them at the Stage Door Canteen and the Alumni Meeting on their trip to New York in April. 124 Purposing to cultivate greater interest in the arts, Professor Vondell, chairman of the Fine Arts Council, started this year ' s programs Avigust 15-22, when, in cooperation with the Amherst Women ' s Club and under Doric ' s general adminis- tration, an " Amherst Festival " was held in honor of the late Professor Frank Waugh. The week ' s program included Oscar Wilde ' s " The Importance of Being Earnest, " directed by Mr. Varley and acted by State students; a concert of voice, flute, and piano by faculty wives and students; a program of poetry writ- ten by Amherst people; a square dance; and a choir concert. On November 7, a joint concert by John Delevoryas ' 46 and Doric Alviani presented them as baritone and piano soloist respectively. The second faculty recital, in the Old Chapel on November 21 offered Esther Strong Clapp, mezzo- soprano. On January 4, 1944, " I Have a Son " was produced by Professor Rand ' s dra- matic production class, which designed and made scenery, and did all — even Hugh Hodgson put on its own make-up. Kasha Thayer directed, and Marjorie Reed was stage manager. Then Miss Horrigan and Pro- fessor James Robertson of the faculty led a panel of constructive criticism. Another play, " Chimney Corner, " was produced on January 13, with Edna Greenfield as director and Pauline Bell as stage man- ager. On February 20, Elaine Schultz ' 46, soloist of the Glee Club concert, and Jean Thomas ' 45, distinguished Katisha of " The Mikado, " presented solos and three duets, accompanied by Doric, at the fifth annual Student Recital of the Fine Arts Program. " Mask-Making as a Hobby " by Pro- fessor Frank P. Rand, was given on March 5 at Butterfield. Talking while molding clay, he gave the general back- ground of mask-making, while produc- ing a face from plasticine. Beginning March 14, the musical or- ganizations, under the direction of Doric Alviani, sponsored a four-day music festival of " American Musicians. " The first recital, a program of American music, was given by John Duke, pianist, and Louise Rood, violist. The following afternoon, Robert McBride, oboe, clari- net, and English horn player, was ac- companied by Gregory Tucker. The next evening, they were joined in a recital by Hugh Hodgson, also a pianist. At the last festival program. Parallels and Con- trasts, Hugh Hodgson demonstrated his ability at the piano. Each teaches at Smith, Bennington, or the University of Georgia. On April 12, Miss Horrigan ' s Literary Interpretation class presented poetry declamations. 125 " Oh, to be on campus, now that sum- mer ' s there! " sighed many a Statesman amidst the thump and roar and sputter of a Victory machine. Meanwhile, to the scales of the chimes and the harmonized choruses of the Air Corps, Massachusetts State marched, ambled, and pedalled to its seven-thirty classes. Down the hill the students came, for Butterfield House was both a college dining hall and the women ' s dormitory. They were a mixed group: four-year stu- dents accelerating their course, February freshmen, summer freshmen, and guests from other colleges. Formerly, fifty to seventy-five percent of a summer ' s group consisted of students from other colleges and, especially, high school teachers. This time, guests from Vassar, Simmons, Syracuse, and A.I.C. were in minority. So, while cadets were marching in platoons and Smith girls were loading hay, preoccupied chemists reveled in the com- pany of hydrogen sulfide. Though some eager .scholars argued that one might U ' fi S ' .f UjiiiW- " - ' easily carry a three-course curriculum for each of the two six-week periods, the ma- jority enjoyed the intimacy reached with only two courses, with two lecture hours given daily in each. The days of some of the coeds were filled by weeding at the college farm, whence they emerged to shock Doric ' s class with dungarees and shirts caked with dirt. To cool off after honest sweat, they often dragged their weary limbs up Butterfield Hill and gave themselves to a shower from Mr. Dumpsey ' s hose. Two hours of tennis after supper stimulated appetites. The obvious remedy was ripe tomatoes in faculty victory gardens. One dark night, as the group was sneaking along Prof. ' s rows (cen- sored for safety), their arms laden, they heard the watchman preparing for pur- suit in his car. In headlong flight, they rushed for shelter from the headlights and threw themselves flat under some convenient bushes — into a bed of poison ivy. They escaped the watchman Saturday night, one o ' clock permissions for Amherst cadets — twelve o ' clock cur- few for girls — was a problem to tax Mrs. Whipple ' s patience to the utmost. At a house meeting, she finally announced in exasperation, " This is too much. Twenty- three girls came in one door last night after one, and eight in the other. I know, because I counted them ! " There were other pleasant distractions: dances at Butterfield; Mr. Varley ' s pro- duction of Oscar Wilde ' s farce. The Im- portance of Being Earnest, at the Jones Library, during the Frank K. Waugh Festival Week held in memory of Profes- sor Waugh; a scavenger hunt; successful U.S.O. dances. R4d 7 a4e Gadeti Qcun Be Sa Qidte! In the spring of 1943, the people on M.S.C. ' s campus gaped, while the rem- nants of an already depleted male student body moved out of Lewis and Thatcher dormitories. Still bewildered, the faculty, coeds, and administrative body saw truckload after truckload of army equip- ment draw up before the dorms on the hill, khaki-colored supplies dispersed, and trucks rumbling back where they ca me. Sunday evening, February 28, 1943, the Army Air Corps students moved into the dorms, and marched down to Draper for meals and into the hearts of the people who had been waiting for them. Coeds flocked to Miss Skinner ' s office to procure U.S.O. Junior Hostess cards. They danced, laughed, talked, and joked with the cadets, and learned more about their country than they could ever hope to in four ordinary college years. The faculty vaulted into long hours of concentrated teaching — history, geogra- phy, government, mathematics, physics, English — all the subjects required in the pre-flight course. The administration did serious planning in the summer of 1943. The " Abbey " was no longer a dorm for upperclass women; it had suffered the same fate as Lewis and Thatcher. The vacated fra- ternity houses became upperclass hang- outs, after being cleaned, repaired, and painted. A cadet-coed formal was held on October 30th. Representatives from wom- en ' s organizations on campus cooperated with cadet representatives to make the formal dance a great success. The cadets ' esteem of M.S.C. coeds was shown when they chose Elaine Schultz ' 46 queen of their ball. The students of M.S.C. then sponsored a Winter Carnival weekend, mostly for cadets. An " open house " program was proposed by Panhellenic whereby cadets were entertained in sorority and " frarority " houses. Cadets entertaining M.S.C. ' s campus? Sure, by their antics in marching from class to class. It was not unusual to see them split ranks, surround a coed and escort her to class, much to her individual embarrassment and to the great delight of her friends. The hilariousness of " frosh " hazing was heightened by the presence of the 58th, who cooperated fully in making them feel like complete " duds. " The memory of the " singing 58th " will never fade from M.S.C. ' s memory. Here could be heard strains of " Six- pence, " there could be heard " God Bless America, " far away " She ' s Just a Per- sonal Friend of Mine, " and nearby " Oh, My Feet Hurt, Ugh! " All were combined into a glorious medley, with a rhythmic of " hut, hoo, hee, hoe.

Although every devoted Statesman during the two weeks before Carnival prayed at least once daily for snow, only a few patches of white could be seen scattered on the brown stubble of the fields. A month before the event, plans were laid by the committee, Joe Kunces, Jim Coffey, Lucille Chaput, Kay Dellea, Barbara Bird, Art Teot, Abe Beisman and Doris Roberts. Helen Beaumont and Ruth Ewing designed attractive posters advertising the Ball. Because of lack of snow, there were no cross country ski races Friday afternoon. In the evening amusicale,MyCo«w r! ,was presented by the Women ' s Glee Club. The lack of male voices was hardly noticed as the girls put their best into such songs as " This is My Country " and " Oh! AVhat a Beautiful Morning, " to make the affair the musical hit of the year. Special numbers were sung by the Sta- tettes, the Bay Statettes, and a new octet, called the Statesmenettes. Ruth Steele, Betty Bates, and Jim Coffey added to the success of the production by adding their humor. Who could forget that handsome figure in a nightshirt? Saturday morning there was no change in the usual routine of classes. At two o ' clock, the braver and more hardy souls among the ski club obtained permission from Captain Congleton to risk their necks on the 13 2 inches of snow covering the hill behind Thatcher. Slaloms and obstacle races were run by both men and women, with no bones broken. At eight o ' clock the Music Maestros from Springfield began a four-hour session of .swing as couples were deposited at the Drill Hall by the wagon load. The hall was again decorated with The Storm of Colors. At 10:30, the Queen of the Carnival, lovely Elaine Schultz, and the members of her court were announced by the judges, Mrs. Whipple and Doctors Ritch- ie, Fraker, Cary, and Helming. The eight girls chosen for the court were Helen Beaumont, Ruth Steele, Roberta Miehlke, Frances White, Ruth Sperry, Kay Dellea, Mary A ' achon and Eleanor Barber. Another high point of the dance was Dean Burns ' demon.stration of his well- known scarf dance, followed by an oration on the merits of M.S.C. ' s Winter Carnival- A great many ex-Statesmen returned in uniform for the one big formal of the year. It was these familiar faces that increased the spirit of tradition permeating the weekend, and left the feeling that in spite of the war, M.S.C. was still M.S.C. Queen Elaine 130 Frosh hazing — that deHghtful week in autumn when new girls have an oppor- tunity to work off excess energy at the leisure and discretion of the sophomores. The thought of hazing struck terror into the lasses of ' 47 from that first Sunday evening when the regulations of the com- ing chaos were delivered to them. The blossoming of two-hundred snowy berets on that last Wednesday in Sep- tember marked open season on freshman girls. At any time during the following week a stranger to the campus would have wondered at their mental state. Would anyone in her right mind wear a raincoat and boots on a sunny day and, what ' s more, carry an open umbrella with brightly colored socks hanging from the spokes? Would a normal person plaster makeup on half the face only, or wear a red skirt with an orange sweater? However, what the sophs ordained, the frosh fulfilled. Of all the planned enterprises, none was anticipated with so much glee as were the two sunrise serenades. Thursday morning about five-thirty, the girls were awakened by the gentle touch of the solicitous sophomores, Carolyn Whit- more, Jean Gould, Holly James, Martha Harrington, and Ruth Kitson, who herded them out into the inky blackness. After rollcall was taken, the girls were urged to trot around to the sorority houses where they demonstrated their vocal ability, much to the li-steners ' delight. Glad to see someone else out at that early hour the air students, too, appreciated this diver- sion. On the following Saturday, this routine was repeated, but after rollcall was taken, the jaunt was called off, due to hesitancy on the sophs ' part to accompany the eager freshmen in the pouring rain. Rumor has it that this turn of events put the damper on a carefully planned sit-down strike! Biggest event of the week was the Pond Party. Due to the moist condition of the air, the request that housecoats be worn was revoked in favor of dungarees and shirts. Fishpoles, varyi ng from curtain rods to yardsticks, were the order of the day; and business-minded girls made a profit by providing the specified number of live worms for a small fee. In the time allotted each girl for trying her luck, four fish were hooked. Entertainment at the party was provided by any frosh who had erred during the week. Excitement ran high. In fact, one member of the hazing committee came rather near raising the water level of the college pond! In the next three weeks, hopping numerals, singing " Alma Mater " in the C-Store, and carrying books of more privileged sophs, became everyday oc- currences, until berets were doffed, and the freshman girls became undergrad- uates. Freshman boys wore their usual ma- roon Eton caps, serenaded coeds at sun- rise, and were duly dunked in the Pond by the Senate for any misdemeanors. 4? oi Suj jje i QnjcuaiiiJCf Paiki4. 131 A G ie4jLfeU ia State The Commencement program this year emphasized the greatly reduced size of the student body. Arrangements were made to hold the soph-senior dance, by tradi- tion a memorable part of the graduation weekend, three weeks before commence- ment while all four classes were still on campus. Held semi-formally, in accord- ance with the vanity of the ladies and the war-time facilities of the men, the dance was a great success, perhaps especially because neither of the classes sponsoring it had dared hope for its realization. The program, as arranged by the Com- mencement Committee, consisting of Douglas Hosmer, Robert Stewart, Rob- ert Monroe, Irving Nichols, Marion Whitcomb, Jean Burgess, Ruth Symonds, and Lee Filios, began with the Senior Convocation, on May 4. Following the Processional, President Baker delivered a short address. Edward Putala gave the class oration. Then Douglas Hosmer, president of the Class of 1944, presented the class gift, a sum of money to be added to the gift of the Class of 1943 for the purchase of a memorial plaque to the heroes of this war. Though Adelphia was not functioning this year, Isogon, the women ' s senior honor society, proceeded with its customary tapping. A short fare- well address by Dean Machmer, the sing- ing of the Alma Mater, and a Recessional concluded the ceremony. When all but the seniors had left Stockbridge Hall and were strolling along the walks, students turned at the sound of song. The seniors had taken possession of the Stockbridge steps, in the traditional manner, and were singing the Alma Mater. Likewise set ahead to the week of the Senior Convocation was the Flint Ora- torical Contest, under the direction of Mr. Clyde Dow. Among this year ' s con- testants were James Coffey ' 4 5, Barbara Bemis ' 44, Elizabeth Mentzer ' 45, and Wallace Hibbard ' 44. Friday night was held the senior class party, combined with the alumni recep- tion, renewing the traditional acceptance of the seniors into the ranks of the alumni. On Saturday, May 20, the Alimmi Meeting was held, at which William V. Hayden ' 13 was re-elected president of the Alumni Association. Because of transportation difficulties and other war impediments, class reunions were this year restricted to the presence on campus of members of the Classes of 1894 and 1899. Of the former, celebrating their fiftieth reunion, 11 members of the 17 now living were present. It was an- nounced that the alumni are again, this year, as in the past two or three years, using the alumni fund set up by classes to l)uy war bonds instead of using it for the needs of the Alumni Association. 132 Ufie, Ute OnAe x. ( eco dl After the meeting of the Board of Trustees at 11 o ' clock, followed the an- nual dinner given by President Baker. Meanwhile, the senior class had assembled in front of the Memorial Building to pro- ceed, under the leadership of the two marshals, in smaller groups than usual, to Bowker Auditorium for Class Day exercises. Features of the program were the customary Hatchet oration, delivered by Bob Stewart, the Pipe oration by Ray Hollis, the Campus by Irving Nichols, the Class by Norman Bornstein, the Ivy by Lee Filios. The Class Ode was written and presented by Pauline Bell. On Saturday evening, at seven o ' clock, took place the President ' s Reception, held at the President ' s house rather than in the rhododendron garden, where Am- herst weather had too often played for the seniors its typically unpredictable finale. The eventful day was culminated with the presentation, by the Roister Doisters, of Love ' s Labour ' s Lost, the first Shake- spearean play to be presented for several years by the society. The stage setting was stylized, stimulative to the imagina- tion of the audience, and somewhat sug- gestive of the scenery employed in Shakespeare ' s own day. That night, too, though no official class reunions were scheduled, sorority houses were open to their alumnae, and bull sessions were numerous and long. At 10 o ' clock on Sunday morning. May 21, 1944, Commencement exercises were held in Bowker Auditorium. Dr. Julius Warren, State Commissioner of Educa- tion, delivered the commencement ad- dress, following the Invocation by Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg. Because of crowded schedules, the customary baccalaureate was this year omitted. Various prizes were announced, and the degrees were conferred in the ceremony that released for their various jobs another group of men and women who, three days before, had been steeped in examinations.

The word, " Alumni, " as used by the Alumni Office at the College, is commonly understood to include both men and women — and in the lists of Alumni in Uniform, as maintained by the office, there appear the names of a good many women. Alumnae of Massachusetts State are serving in the WAC, WAVES, SPARS, Marine Corps Reserve, Army Nurse Corps, Navy Nurse Corps, the American Red Cross. Sergeant Catherine M. Birnie, ' 37, WAC, summed up, perhaps, the feeling of Alumnae in Uniform when she recently wrote to the Alumni Office, " As a mem- ber of the WAC, I am glad to be doing a part in our campaign for victory and an enduring peace. " Then she added, " I hope to go overseas soon. " Sergeant Eunice M. Johnson, ' 33, WAC, is laboratory technician at the medical replacement training center at Camp Grant, Illinois. She is assigned to the laboratory of the Station Hospital which, she wrote, is " an excellent one. " Lieutenant Elizabeth M. Clapp, ' 39, WAC, is dietitian at the Station Hospital at Camp Davis in North Carolina. Ensign Geraldine I. Bradley, ' 39, NNC, has served at the Chelsea, Mass., Naval Hospital and at the St. Albans Naval Hospital, Long Island. Now she is as- signed to the Naval Operating Base at Norfolk and recently wrote, " I ' m all enthusiasm over my new duty. " Lieutenant (2nd) Nancy E. Luce, ' 40, WAC, now overseas, wrote to the Alumni Office last fall about some phases of her army training. Her experiences, no doubt, are typical. Nancy wrote, in part, as follows : " Training in officer ' s school is all that you hear about it. There is nothing easy to it. Everything you do is ' on the double. ' The only answers you dare to make are ' yes ma ' am ' , ' no ma ' am ' , or ' no excuse ma ' am. ' The rest of the time you say absolutely nothing and rush from close- E. 3.

Board and Court Procedures, Map read- ing (evidently I still can ' t understand a back azimuth), mess management, supply (which is one grand headache); and you find your notes look something like this — TlA equals TBA minus UPO plus CO divided by PPO subtracted from MR certified by USO and subdivided by SOS. " It certainly doesn ' t make a great deal of sense to you, I know — and it didn ' t to me, either, for quite a while. " The entire training is pretty inten- sive, and when you near the time for commission, you wonder if you shouldn ' t be appearing before ' the section 8 board ' (ask any army man what I mean by this). " You know — as time goes on you find that this world gets smaller, and here is a good example of what I mean. " When I was traveling east on my leave from Iowa, I was talking to a soldier who was returning from Guadal- canal. This was his first time in the States for 18 months. I recalled that the Alumni Bulleiin had mentioned that Captain Willard O. Foster, Jr., ' 40 and Captain George T. Pitts, Jr., ' 40 were somewhere in Guadalcanal. I thought that by some queer twist of circumstances this soldier might have known these clas.smates of mine. He certainly did, and corrected me on the fact that they now had captain ratings and were not 1st Lieutenants as I had thought. (As the 1944 Index goes to press, both men are Majors.) " It seems to me that in reading the Alumni Bidletin, and seeing other reports, the R.O.T.C. unit at the College has turned out some of the best trained men the Army can boast. Massachusetts State College should be proud of her Ed. Note: — Massachusetts State is proud of her men and of her women.

Wednesday, September 22nd, Presi- dent Baker took his familiar stance on the platform of Bowker Auditorium to welcome back what was left of the three predominently female upper classes. Also on the welcoming committee were the freshmen, who after three days in resi- dence, already owned at least half the campus. However, during the next two weeks, through practice of the old institu- tion of hazing, the sophomores corrected any false impressions the frosh might have acquired. At the first convocation in October, Agnes Smedley gave an interesting lec- ture on China and its part in the war. The following week, convo was turned over to the Community Chest who began a campus-wide drive to collect $1500. Throughout the next few weeks, a thermometer in front of South College kept everyone up to date on the progress made in reaching the goal. The annual series of Social Unions be- gan on October 20th, when Ted Shawn gave a lecture followed by an exhibition of Denishawn dancing. On the 28th, Lillian Gish held her audience spellbound with tales of her life on the stage and screen. By this time those who had not wrenched their backs trying to imitate Shawn, were contemplating a glorious future on the stage. Then came Hallowe ' en — " What! Dean ' s Saturday so soon! " Perhaps to compensate for those who were posted, and to celebrate for those who were not, the air students sponsored a formal dance in the Drill Hall. Elaine Schultz upheld the M.S.C. coed ' s claim to beauty by being crowned Queen of the Ball and Sweetheart of the 58th College Training Detachment. The following weekend the cadets took a back seat when the junior R.O.T.C. men returned from Fort Riley to State as part of the A.S.T.P. More than one coed pranced around in a state of blissful enchantment because " her man " had come back. Even those who had a less personal interest were more than glad to welcome the familiar faces back from the " Hole " in Kansas — otherwise k nown as Fort Riley. This same Sunday, the coeds opened the fall hunting season with the first Round Robin Tea of the year. Rushing was concentrated into two weeks during which time four teas. Closed Date, and pledging were held. The noise on campus had hardly abated to a dull roar that weekend of November 6th and 7th, when on Monday, the occupants of six fraternity houses awoke to find that they had been robbed of jewelry, money, and even bobby pins! For a few days Fraternity Row was over- run with police who measured muddy foottracks, and lifted elusive fingerprints. In spite of many attempts to track down the perpetrator(s) of this crime, it has remained State ' s unsolved mystery — page Ellery Queen. 136 The next week, too, was hectic. At Social Union on the 16th, Richard Korbel, nine-year-old pianist, held his audience open-mouthed as he whizzed through a program of diflBcult classical pieces. During this week Amherst ' s first snowfall was heralded with much glee by Southern cadets who went through the same antics Northern boys had performed in their distant childhood. Friday night was Closed Date for the six sororities who on Saturday shared 109 pledges. Thanksgiving vacation, November 21- 27th, was a welcome rest. As relaxation from holiday effects, nearly everyone attended the Mikado, given December 4th, successful despite lack of males. Friday, December 11th, Butterfield, Chi Omega and Tau Epsilon Phi House held the first vie parties of the semester, carrying out a favorable decision of the Student Life Committee as to the advis- ability of keeping on with the old tradi- tion during wartime. At about this same time, the much discussed petition was sent to the governor. Sunday, State once more parted with the Mill Majors, who left this time for Fort Benning ' s O.C.S. — future infantry officers. Christmas vacation, from the 17th to the 28th, was terminated before New Year ' s, regardless of the petition. To cele- brate the big night, students and air students danced and bowled in the Drill Hall and Memorial Building until one. January 6th, students were given the rare privilege of viewing an Air Corps hero in person when Major George Spel- man of the Class of ' 39 was awarded his B.S. degree at convo. An equal attraction was Dr. Osbert Warmingham, who spoke on " The Art of Successful Living. " From the 17th to the 22nd, Statesmen once more took on that well known air of dejection and sleeplessness caused by semester finals. A brief break of four days (just long enough to get home and back again) was followed by mid-winter grad- uation on the 27th. Thirty-eight seniors were speeded on their way into a world at war by the principal speaker. Rear Admiral Wat T. Cluverius. With February came the sad news that the " beavers, " those singing cadets, would be at M.S.C. no more after the 1st of May. February 5th, at another Social Union, the Roister Doisters produced a satire on campus life, called Ophelia Takes the Cup. Perhaps the brand of humor produced had something to do with the fact that when, on February 11th, the Mobile Blood Donor Unit arrived at State, sever- al people were found to be anemic. For two weeks after the 18th and 19th, there was no violent excitement on campus. Carnival Weekend seemed to have done a thorough job of removing all surplus energy. On March 4th and 5th, Alpha Lambda Mu took the long-waited for step by joining a national sorority. Pi Beta Phi. It was also an open secret that t he Beta Delta girls were accepting the aegis of Sigma Kappa later in the spring. As this year ' s Index goes to press, the history of the year is incomplete; but notwithstanding the continued decrease in numbers of the masculine element, there is still a prospect of good times yet to come. M.S.C. coeds can hope. 137 Tatronize the INDEX ' S ' Paige ' s Advertisers Bowling Alleys Service Station T ' he J ord Jeffery Amherst, Massachusetts Attractive Roomsrx.
