NOTHER link has detached itself from the chain of ages and 
fallen into the abyss of the past. Another class has sepa- 
rated itself from us and gone forth into the busy world to 
strike for themselves, leaving those who are behind to press forward 
into their vacant places and prepare for a similar leap at the ap- 
pointed time. Again, by the new faces appearing amongst us, we 
ar3 constantly reminded that the wheel of time has turned once 
more, bringing another class in sight, ready to join hands with us 
while marching forward in the search for knowledge, able and will- 
ing to maintain their j)art in college duties. And it is these changes, 
as also the changes in our private hves and doings, that we are 
called upon at this time to notice and record. In fact, we present 
to you the fourth volume of The Index, a name significant of its con- 
tents, as containing facts and fancies pointing in some measure to 
the character and good will of all connected in any way with our 
College. The publication of The Index by the Junior classes, has 
become, we hope, a fixed thing, one that will be kept up and con- 
tinued by the classes in the future. The class of '74, not lacking in 
the spirit of former classes, has taken up this pleasant task, handed 
down to them by their predecessors, and have in full time, by their 
editorial corps, exerted themselves to make this issue fully equal to 
those of the past, while endeavoring to go. beyond them in its ex- 
cellence and worth as far as possible. 

The curriculum of the College has been somewhat changed or 
modified of late, and now we have a complete course in Veterinai-y 
Science, which may be considered of great advantage to all con- 



4 T HE Ind ex.^ 

cerned. A change has likewise occiiiTed in the Mihfcary depart- 
ment, and a new "man in blue " has been given us to salute in the 
office and in the ranks. In the M. A. C. Cadets the Seniors have 
commenced their lives as commissioned officers ; the Juniors and 
Sophs, theirs in lesser grades, and all unite in trying to make the 
poor Freshmen hold up their heads and march to the proper tune. 

We are glad to see the Faculty of the College exerting themselves 
too, for we students had fallen into a deplorable state of inaction, 
and though the fault lies with ourselves in a great measure, we can't 
but help seeing that a "screw has been loose" somewhere. By the 
low standard of admission that has been in practice, many have en- 
tered the institution, who have neither benefited themselves nor 
others, but have, on the other hand, been the means of positive in- 
jury to all. This we see the Faculty are commencing to obviate by 
a more thorough examination of new students, and requiring more 
from those already entered. Although only a commencement has 
been made, we are rejoiced to see it, and more of the same, and 
will welcome the day when a "flunk" (in college language) will be 
considered a strange and rare thing. In our private lives, too, the 
Faculty seem to have become imbued with a parental anxiety for 
our comfort and health, so that now we are favored with a weekly 
visit from "LHusjiedeur," compelling some of us, we can but say, to 
work on the day set apart for rest. 

Our Professors are, as a general thing, what they should be, — 
skilled in their several departments, and capable of imparting their 
knowledge to others ; possessing, in most cases, the good-will and 
resj)ect of the students. We hope they will continue to occupy 
theu' respective positions in public and private life, though as to the 
latter some are meditating a serious change. 

During the past collegiate year two college-mates have gone from 
us, taken, after a short illness in both cases, by the reaper Death, 
reminding us that we all are but dust, and to dust we shall all 
return. 

Classmates, turning to you, we might ask with what enjoyment 
and how satisfactory have been all our meetings and gather- 
ings together, but it is needless so to do. Suffice it to say, that in 
all our participations, the best of order has been maintained, the 
strictest rules of tem])erance as well as those of gentlemaril^con- 
duct have been observed, and none but the most amicable senti- 
ments have been sustained among us. How many of those still re- 
maining, can, in after years, when age has wrapped its fleecy mantle 



TheIndex. 5 

about them, revert their thoughts to the reminiscences of college 
life, without feeling a most passionate desire to see once more seated 
around a festive board at Fitch's the class of '74, and listen to their 
jokes and puns " which were ivont to set the table in a roar ? " Not 
one ! No ! Many and pleasant will be the reflections cast upon 
our college hfe, and upon those with whom we wandered upon the 
banks of the yet unexplored river of Knowledge, hand-in-hand, 
with Hope for our Anchor, and Faith for our Guide. 

" Strike, but heae ! " has always been our motto, and may it ever 
be. May we ever be ready and willing to do, but at the same time 
listen to the counsel of others more experienced and older than our- 
selves, and retain our rank in that sphere of independence becom- 
ing every man and every station. 

In closing, we (the editors) whose lot it has been to have the 
managing and editing of The I^^DEx, hope that our work will meet 
with the approval of all, be the harbinger of many noble, pleasant 
thoughts and acts, as well as the source of much merriment. If 
any offense is taken it will be considered as due to the peculiar dis- 
position of the personages, and not to be attributed to ourselves, as 
no offense is intended. 




For the fourth and last time is '73 represented in The Index. 
The former communications from our class have been characterized 
bj their wit, and their pleasing allusion to the jokes and cheerful 
events of the past year. But as we are now situated in the evening 
of our college life, with the future, filled with the many stern reidi- 
ties so near at hand, our thoughts are naturally drawn into deeper 
and more serious channels. Perhaps the one question vvrhich comes 
home to each one of us with more earnestness than any other, is. 
" Have the three years which we have spent here been rightly and 
profitably improved, and ai'e we sufficiently compensated for the 
time and money which we have here expended ?" It is indeed true 
that many, perhaps all of us, have wasted many precious moments 
and allowed many opportunities to go unimproved. We have also 
pursued many studies here, which in after life may be of no prac- 
tical importance to any of us. But on looking back over the three 
years which have passed away since first we entered these College 
halls as verdant Freshmen, we feel that our progress has been in 
many respects satisfactory. We have found here many new ideas, 
have stored away a vast amount of useful information, aud have 
passed through a course of mental training and discipline, which we 
hope will hereafter place us in positions of trust and honor among 
our fellow citizens. Yes, we are satisfied, and we shall go forth from 
here feeling that our time has not been altogether wasted, and 



7 W TheIndex. 

hoping tliat we may turn the information and knowledge, which we 
have here stored away, to vakiable account. 

But this, as has been before stated, is the last communication from 
'73 to The Index, and to all of us it is a sad thought. It is true that 
we have long been looking forward to graduation day as the final 
consummation of our happiness. We have been eager to quit the 
sometimes dull monotony of college life, and to go forth and try 
our fortunes with others in the great world around us. But as the 
time draws near, and as we begin to perform, one by one, this and 
that duty for the last time, these feehugs give way to those of sad- 
ness and reflection. The cords of affection which have so long 
bound us together, seem to tighten at the thought of separation, 
and love for our Alma Mater increases as the parting draws near. 
It is hard to think that the time is so near at nand when the old 
class will break up, probably never to meet again an unbroken circle, 
and also that our life as students, in many respects so pleasant, will 
so soon end. 

In closing, we are happy to say that we are not at all ashamed of 
the record which we leave behind us. We have ever held the re- 
spect and esteem of all the classes with whom we have been con- 
nected- In athletic sports we leave an unspotted record. Our 
class nine has never suffered a defeat. In the rowing regattas at 
Ingleside and Springfield the muscle of '73 has been freely and 
profitably expended. We have two qualities which we feel safe in 
advising our successors to imitate ; they are, the unity, and class- 
pride which have ever characterized '73. Yes, we love our old col- 
lege home and are loth to leave it, but as in the natural course of 
events partings and separations must come, we put on a cheerful 
face and bid the readers of The Index a long farewell. 

W. 



ffM 



Two years of onr college life have passed away, and, as we are 
starting on the third, our annual contribution to The Index is called 
foi. As we look back through the past year upon that sunny 
autumn, when we felt for the first time that we were no longer the 
et cetera ; upon the cold winter, when one's fireside was the most 
comfortable place this side of "home"; upon the bright summer, 
when we were wont to gather around the stately form of some pro- 
fessor, and tell, with boyish delight, of Angles, Kingk and Reformers, 
or "What we knew about /ar/ra'nc/"; when we look upon all this 
that has passed, a feeling of sadness comes over us. Not that we 
have neglected duty, far from it, but that one place in this happy 
circle is vacant, never again in this hfe to be filled. And however 
long we may be spared to life's work, we shall always remember the 
happy countenance, the kind words and the Christian example of 
our classmate Clark. Feeling that what was our loss has resulted 
in his eternal gain, we are willing to leave it in the hands of Him 
who doeth all things weU. 

With the Faculty we are on the best of terms, having done noth- 
ing to merit their displeasure, not even having bolted without wait- 
ing the required time. And no one can fail to see how highly they 
estimate our abilities, if they but read the routine for the present 
term. For, to aid us in the digestion of our great intellectual feast, 
a Physical portion is given us as dessert, which, by the way, is one of 
the most substantial and hearty dishes of the feast. In Veterinary 
Science we are progressing finely, under the guidance of our new 
Professor in this depariment ; and any one not acquainted with us 
(or the language) would think German our native tongue. Our 
work in the Horticultural department has been very pleasant, thus 
far, as the path to the scene of action passes through the vineyard, 
and onions grow not there. In Agriculture our progress has been 



TheIndex. 9 

rapid, liaviag gone thi'ough, or as we might say, over, the different 
kinds of farms, and arrived at cranberries, which, by the way, are 
studied here entirely by theory. 

But few, as yet, have shown themselves dangerous rivals of Booth 
in the rendering of Shakespeare ; but, in the words of one of our 
number, "we arn't through, yet." In Military Science we are quite 
expert, having had both theory and practice combined, which, as 
we all know, 'makes perfect. 

In conclusion we can say, that, having come off victorious in all 
games of science during the past year with '75, (who, like the old 
"salt", commenced with nothing, and have held their own ever 
since) we feel competent for the task of sustaining ourselves, during 
the rest of our course, as honorably as we have heretofore, and then 
with sheep-skins under our arms, take up the song, — 

"'Farewell to College duties, 

Farewell to Amherst 

We're going home." 

D. 




The class of '75 enters upon its Sophomore year with but little 
diminution of its original number. In our Freshmen year we were 
called upon to mourn the death of one beloved classmate, whom 
we trust is now beyond the pale of sin and sorrow. The transition 
from Freshmen to Sophomores has deprived us of some able men, 
some indeed, who, in the language of one that has gone from us, 
could "manipulate the cue, and agitate the ivories with a precision 
unequalled ;" others there have been, who, having taken aU chapel 
exercises, would follow the mazy and intricate paths of Agricultural 
Science oftentimes once in a week or more. But the loss of these 
men was to be expected. The great world called upon them to let 
their light shine in other fields of action, and they responded. Let 
it be the endeavor of every man in the class, through scholarship 
and ability, to compensate for the loss of those thus early called in. 

In regard to our studies, we flatter ourselves that we are as far 
advanced as previous classes were at this stage of their college life. 
One of our number has already received a prize scholarship, to ob- 
tain which, must have cost no small amount of unremitting applica- 
tion to study. Our respected instructor in Mathematics and in 
Military Art, has been superseded in the last named by one whose 
fitness for that branch of instruction none would be so rash as to 
question. As chemists, at this particular time, we are searching for 
the base, but don't always find it, as many a treacherous test tube 
could testify. Nevertheless we shall endeavor to press on toward 
the goal, which is, of course, with those of us who intend to farm 
it, to analyze our soils, and eventually cause all those unscrupulous 
persons, who at the present time vend their third rate fertihzing 
compounds, to migrate to that section where chemists are unknown. 

But enough of hopes and aspirations ; let us turn to that subject 
ever fraught" with interest to the dignified Soi)h., the hapless 
Freshy ! What a paternal interest we have taken in them ! How 



TheIndex. 11 

faithfully we have endeavored to initiate them into the many minor 
points of college life. Some generous spirits, having their future 
welfare at heart, favored them quite early in their college career 
with a visit, and when the ominous Sophomoric rap resounded in 
their ears, with what alacrity did they open unto us, and produce 
the calumet together with the weed " that lulls, but doesn't agitate," 
and tremblingly invite us to fall to. 

In hazing we have never indulged, knowing well it would be be- 
neath the dignity of '75. 'Tis true we did invite one hero of '76 to 
remove his outer habihments and prepare himself for the embrace 
of kindly Moipheus. Need I say that this modest request was com- 
plied with, notwithstanding the disinterested advice of '74 to the 
contrary ? In regard to "Rushes," we have had but one decided one, 
and then were challenged by '76. We responded to the urgent ap- 
peals for '75 to appear, and, though the night was extremely dark, 
the result will never be published in the annals of those brave but 
rash Freshmen. 

Thus we have briefly glanced over some of the leading points of 
interest in our Sophomore year thus far. It vnll be our endeavor 
to maintain the record thus far creditable, throughout the remain- 
der of our course. May all of us, when called upon to fight hfe's 
battles in after years, be able to say that our Alma Mater never had 
cause to blush for us during our college course.

The class of '76 enters College with her members numbering 
thirty-seven. Not as large a number as were reported to be coming 
at the commencement of the term, but we hope the difference be- 
tween the actual and expected number wiU be made up partially, if 
not wholly, in the second term. Among us, four different States 
and one foreign country (Japan) are represented ; the four States 
being New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, of 
which Massachusetts sends more than two-thirds of the whole 
number ; thus showing that the people of this State are alive to 
the advantages of an Agricultural College, and that they intend, 
by sending their sons to it, to give them through life the benefit 
of a thorough scientific education. 

The Sophs have treated us very well thus far. To be sure a few 
doors have been tested by them, and one or two Freshmen have re- 
ceived practical instructions in chemistry (experiments with sul- 
phuretted hydrogen); but such things must be looked upon as due 
to an overflow of animal spirits. 

As regards "rushes", we have had one, or rather, several closely 
following each other on the same evening. In these, we flatter our- 
selves that we came out a little ahead. We endeavored, and we 
hope succeeded, in showing them that we were not deficient in 
pluck, and that the " spirit of '76 " burned as brightly as it did a 
hundred years ago. '74 has kindly offered to assist us in all class 
matters; such as forming our corps of "rushers," filling the office of 
moderator, etc., for which we are, of course, grateful to them. They 
try to make us feel that, although we are much persecuted Fresh- 
men, we have friends upon whom we may rely in time of need, and 
always find consolation. 

As in all classes, so in ours, there are some odd names on the list. 
Most curious of all is. our having three bearing the same surname. 



The Index.

Let us hope that at least one of them may equal in standing and in 
declamation, the student of '75 of the same name. 

Of military drill and farm work, so far most of us have had a 
sufficiency. A few brave spirits, however, seem to be unable to get 
enough of work, and if they retain their present relish for it during 
the year, an astonishing amount will have been performed. By 
that time they will probably be able to tell us " what they know 
about farming." We endeavor to do our best in both of these 
branches; but, as many ct us are green hands, no doubt our best is 
but poor. We hope, nevertheless, by perseverance, to be able to 
stand high in all departments ; and, by trying on all occasions to 
conduct ourselves in a gentlemanly manner, to so improve, that the 
College will some day be proud of us, both individually and as a 
class. G.

This celebrated Conservatory is one of the finest objects of 
interest to be found in Amherst. At all seasons of the year 
its interior is "woi'thy of the closest examination, which cannot prove 
otherv^ise than pleasing and instructive. While in the summer 
season its garden and grounds are ornamented with shrubs, trees, 
and floral adornmsnfcs, which, together with the magnificent scenery 
which it commands, combine to make it a resort which is admired 
and frequented by every one. Having as it does many plants 
representing the vegetation of various countries of the world, the 
casual observer finds here much of the curious and wonderful, as 
well as beautiful in nature, in some plant or flower, either by its 
mode of growth, form, or color, or perhaps by perusing the seem- 
ingly useless appellation on the label accompanying each plant. 
But the student or botanist, searching for curiosities and floral 
gems, meets with good success, for he here finds many plants which 
he has never seen before. In fact no one, with a love of the beauti- 
ful in nature, having visited it once can go away without resolving 
to come again, for a rearrangement of the plants, or some new 
flower in bloom, gives to the mind a new idea of beauty through its 
novelty. 

Among some of the more important plants are the Banyan 
tree, so celebrated among the Hindoos, the India rubber, the Guava, 
orange, lemon, the Passiflora Quad7'angularis; stretching its broad 
arms over the rafters, and continually displaying its beautiful and 
fragrant flowers, the Chilian Pine, New Zealand Flax, Pine Apple, 



TheIndex. 49 

Banana, Coffee, Tea, Sugar' Cane, Cinnamon, Jf^s'a Textilis, from 
which the manilla hemp is obtained, the Ohve, an,l several palms. 
Beside the many economic plants enumerated above, the collection 
contains many of the ornamental and decorative plants commonly 
grown in conservatories. As a means of education, it is a necessary 
adjunct to every institution of learmng- having agriculture and horti- 
culture for its aim. It opens a wide field of valuable knowledge to 
the student, and introduces him, through the various manipulations, 
into that occupation so traly refining, which leads to thought, is so 
conducive to longevity and the best interests of mankind, and tends 
constantly to recall his straying thoughts to admire the wonderful 
works of the Ruling Power of the universe. 

At the present time the Durfee plant house contains, including 
species and varieties, between nine hundred and one thousand 
plants. As regards profit, it is not yet a success ; but should men 
of means, as many there are in the State, step forward and follow 
the example of the generous builder. Dr. Nathan Durfee, of Fall 
River, they would furnish that which the institution demands, as 
weU as an independent and self-paying department.

After the death of so many other people, Weber he died at No. 
15 South College, July 12, 1872, while suffering excruciating agony, 
having passed through a sickly existence of three months. 

HIS FUNEEAL SERVICES 

were opened at the solemn hour of midnight, arouud the Pyre, at 
the Stile near the Bucolic, by a groan from the " High Priest" 

Eight Eev. E. P. CHANDLEE, 

followed by some 
Prodigiouslygigantlfiedstupendicated Egregiouslysaturatedmagniloquence, 

from the 

Eev. E. GILLETT, 

Succeeded by a 

HIM 

Bugleized by the Mourners. 

Then a 

Bombastic yet superlatively soul-subduing burst of Panegyricism, 

by A. W. DICKINSON, 

climaxed by 

A PEAYEE preyed by the aforesaid saturated Eeverend.

EACE BETWEEN THE CREWS OF 74 AND '75. 
Won by '74. Time, 20 miniates, 51 seconds. 

Time of '75, 21 minutes, 10 seconds. 
J. M. Benedict, Coach of '74. 
LoKD Parker, Coach and Chief Adviser '75. 
The defeat of '75 was, undoubtedly due to wet stocking^ ; a per- 
sistency in pi'acticing in the new bnat, caubiug it to be 'tmter-logged ; 
and violation of the rigid discipline recommended by their Chief 
Advisor.

minded of a fair damsel down town." " Why so ?" " Because 
(W)altering it would be a decided improvement." 

Why is one of our Profs, an unsuccessful hunter ? Because he 
waits so long to get the line of coUimalion parallel to the sight, that 
the resultant is an instrumental parallax, and the birds fly away 
disgusted. 

What is the matter with the YearUngs ? The Thalami nervorum 
opticorum, having proceeded to anastomose with the great sympa- 
thetic, makes, as is a well known fact, the pyramidal and olivary 
anfractuosities begin their decussation. The conseqences are ob- 
vious.
