The second meeting of the student
council of the National Agricultural
College was held October 9, 1952.

A request was made for a letter to be
sent to Ed's Diner for the acknowledg-
ment of the fifty dollars the student
council received for the advertising sign
placed on the school property.

Three committees were formed to
see the Dean about food, roads, and the
student lounge. The committees and
members are as follows: Food Com-

The workings of the student court
were explained and Ed Vansant was
voted prosecutor.

A theft in the dormitory was re-
ported. Money was taken from foot-
ball players' rooms while they were at
the game on Saturday. This situation
will be looked into.

Some of the rules of freshman hazing
were cleared up for the Freshman rep-
resentative.

As many dances as possible will be



held here at the college. A minimum of
two weeks must pass between each
dance. Classes will have first choice as
to where and when they will hold their
dance.

It was decided that Thursday would
be the most suitable day for student
council meetings in the future.

The third student council meeting
was open on October 22, 1952.

It was decided that a jukebox dance

THE
PARROT'S CAGE

By Michael Aiello '53



Hello all you fans, old and new, the
old parrot's back in his cage just chirp-
ing full of interesting tidbits of news.

Jack Soards is currently engaged to
Gloria (paint bucket) DeMarco. There
has been an unearthly silence on the
third floor of Ullman Hall since George
Demitroff has been working.

We have several transients this year —
Art Gale spends his time in Philly, and
Ron Bronsweig finds the pure air of
New York to his liking.

Guess who, when suspected of cheat-
ing on an exam and was requested to
move to the front of the room, asked if
he could bring a friend along?

Bub Jaggard had a wet summer and
it wasn't due to the rain.

The Dairy Society expects an increase
of freshman membership after that class'
intimate survey of the dairy barns. We
understand that Shirvani more or less
volunteered for special duty on that
eventful day.

That poor old Allis Chalmers won't
ever be the same after last summer.
How's the plowing, Ludwig?

Sam Boltax returned to us from the
frozen wastes of Newfoundland. But is
he still longing for the company of those
"Newfie" women?

Poor Millstone looks as if he hit one
of the larger holes in Alumni Lane.

We are happy to report that Smiling
Sam MaLove is upholding the philoso-
14




phy of Nate Frank's "Buy cheap and
sell steep."

Daily double Aiello is the proud
owner of the only full diesel automobile
on the North American Continent.

I'm sure that everyone in the senior
dorm was relieved to meet the girl from
Chicago — Congratulations, John.

Warning! — Room inspection soon — ■
"Oke" and Nash.

Dan Franchetti has finally succeeded in
beating the draft — What's the secret of
your success, Dan?

Ed Vansant has an apartment which
that is, if Peters hasn't already put in his
reservations.

Joe ( the bookie ) Chernicoff will take
bets anywhere, anytime, on anything.

Memo to George Weaver: Did you
ever find that lost blanket on Featherbed
Hill?

The Senior dorm is getting warmed
up again since Ivar has almost stopped
limping.

Is it true that the night before hazing,
a car with South Jersey plates, carrying
two strong football players in it, was
seen streaking out the gate?

That's all for awhile, but watch your
step — the Parrot has his glassy eyes on
you.

The Alumni Qleanings



EDITORIAL

By Morton Hershman '54

While thumbing through some of the
old Gleaners, I came upon some of the
most inspiring writings I have evet
read. They were messages from the old
alumni to the students and new alumni
of N. F. S. These alumni had real spirit
and pride in their school. They were
proud of the accomplishments of their
Alma Mater and told everyone so.

Now that we have become a college,
what has happened to these alumni? It
is true that many come to the reunions
and a few come to a football game now
and then, but the large and powerful
alumni association which should be in
evidence just isn't here. I believe that
the main fault is with the newer alumni
— the graduates of the college. It is up
to these men to carry on the tradition
of loyalty that was started so long ago.

The old graduates of N. F. S. and
those of the college have a common
interest in the betterment of the school
and the achievements of our long time
goals. A strong alumni association can
do this.

In this new idea of the combined
Gleaner and Gleanings we hope to
bring all the alumni in close contact
with the activities and problems of the
college.

Members of the alumni, we will
welcome all suggestions, articles, news,
and pictures from you. All of us on the
staff sincerely hope that you will par-
ticipate in this, your part of the Alma
Mater's activities — the alumni section of
the Gleaner.

What's New With the Alumni?

By now, most of you have heard the
news concerning our new assistant Dean.
He is James Shaeffer '50. Mr. Sheaffer
replaced Mr. Miller, who is now the
college Business Manager. Good luck
on your new job, Mr. Sheaffer. I feel
certain that you will receive the fullest
cooperation of the student body.

While our editor was taking a va-
cation in Atlantic City, he saw Paul
Stein '52. Joe said that Paul is looking
fine and has lost a little weight.

Two more new alumni were seen



roaming around campus recently. Bob
Holland '52, who is working as herds-
man at Trainer's Dairy Farm in the
Doylestown area, was seen in the dorm,
discussing poultry. John Toor '52, an
Animal Husbandry major, is working on
his father's poultry farm. It seems that
the poultry industry is taking more than
its measure of grads.

One more alumnus was seen on
campus a while ago. Vic Pessano '51
was roaming around taking a vacation
from his job at Swift and Co.

Post Grad. Dept. — Bill Jasper '50,
who transferred to Vermont, is now at
Cornell. He is working for his Doctorate
and is employed by the P.M. A. in
Washington.

Uncle Sam wanted to get into this act
in the worst way. We all looked forward
to see Bob Rubin '54 when we came
back to school after vacation. Although
he did not return, we received word that
he is going to another type of school —



Military Police School of the U. S. Army.
I know Bob will make a good MP even
though he is a quiet, retiring person.

Some friends just received a letter
from Bob Davis '54. He is now at
Sampson Air Base. As fate would have
it, he's bunking right next to another
alumnus, Al Furie '52. Bob said that he
and Al both like the Air Force, but miss
the fellows at N. A. C.

Our social season here at college is
getting into full swing. The junior class
is again having its third annual Square
Dance and Hayride on November 15th,
the evening of the last football game.
I hope to see many of the alumni present.

We were all deeply saddened by the
recent mishap suffered by Mr. Groman.
His strong will and determination to
overcome his handicap serves as inspira-
tion to us all.

That's all for now. Until next issue,
so long and good luck.



DESERVING HONORS

An Excerpt from a letter sent to the National Farm School from F. G.
Hellyer, Acting Dean, Rutgers University, 1934

As you know, we have three boys
from The National Farm School at
Doylestown, Pennsylvania, enrolled in
the College of Agriculture. Two of
them. Van Der Noot and Elson have
been here now going on two years,
while Plevinsky is in the freshman year.
These boys have proved themselves in
every place that they have been put.
Scholastically Elson and Plevinsky rank
near the top of their respective classes,
while Van Der Noot is in the upper
fourth of his class. Elson and Van Der
Noot worked on the College Farm this
summer, while each of them proved
himself a first class man at any kind of
work to which we set him. You, better
than I know their contribution to
student activities in the University
through their performance in various
fields of sport. When one remembers
their excellent scholastic attainments
and their generous contributions to col-
lege life and also remember that these
boys are earning a considerable part of
their expenses, it is easy to see that they
have the stuff that makes them not only
16




very desirable college students, but
which promises to make the right kind
of men for responsible positions after
they are through college.

"From the standpoint of the College
of Agriculture we wish we could get

THE ALUMNI GLEANINGS

(Continued from page 16)
more students like these three from the
National Farm School."

F. G. Hellyer, Acting Dean

# # # #

I would like to tell you about one of
the three men mentioned above. He is
our own chemistry professor, Mr. Jesse
Elson.

Mr. Elson hails from Brooklyn, New
York, where he was a standout at Madi-
son High School in sports as well as
academic work. Upon graduating from
Madison High, Jesse entered The Na-
tional Farm School where he was soon
named "hauncher" for his football play-
ing ability. "Haunch" captained an un-
defeated team in his senior year and was
rated as one of the best players to have
ever donned a Green and Gold uniform.
Jess also showed himself as an all
around player by being one of the big
guns on the Farm School basketball
team. On graduation day he was
awarded the Gold Charm Award for
scholastic ability, popularity, and athletic
attainments.

Jesse continued his education by going
to Rutgers University, where he ma-
jored in soil chemistry. Upon his stay
at Rutgers, Jesse became a member of
the boxing team and soon earned the
title of heavy weight king of New
Jersey. While interviewing Mr. Elson,
he mentioned something about finish-
ing a bout with a fractured arm. By
doing a little research in the matter, I
ran across this column which was
printed in the Rutgers School paper.
It reads as follows:

"How Many Would?

The ringing challenge of the Rutgers
athlete has been reborn again. Last
Saturday afternoon Jesse Elson, heavy
weight boxer, fought two rounds with
a fractured arm, knowing all the time
that the three year undefeated record
of the Scarlet in the squared circle rested
on the outcome of his bout.

"Needless to say, Elson didn't quit
even though at the end of the bout he
fainted from the pain of battling with a
useless hand.

"It is infrequent that the Targun
commends an athlete in its editorial
columns, but in this case, the staff feels
that every undergraduate should pay
Jesse Elson just homage for that do or
die spirit exhibited against Yale."

"This fractured arm kept Jesse from



earning a spot on the American Olympic
boxing team. What greater loyalty can
a man have?"

After graduating from Rutgers, Jesse
furthered his education by receiving an
M. S. from North Carolina State; a B. S.
from Virginia Polytechnic Institute; and
his Ph.D. from Rutgers University.

At the conclusion of my interview
with this man deserving honor, I asked
Jesse Elson if he had any other hobbies.
The tall impressive gentleman smiled
and announced, "My kids are my
hobbies."

STUDENT COUNCIL NEWS

would be given December 17, at Lasker
Hall on the National Agricultural Col-
lege Campus. It is given by the com-
bined cooperation of the National
Agricultural College and Ambler School

The student council will carry the
Jukebox this year for the first time and
for the first semester only. Sam McCIeary
will be in charge of purchasing and
selecting the records.

The college will have four head
waiters in the future, instead of three,
one being over all the rest. His ap-
