LTHOUGH it has been the custom of former editors 
in pubUshing a new book to make all manner of 
apologies to the reader, we have but few to offer. 

Rather, we would begin by thanking our 
several contributors. 
We are even grateful to our many friends who have unwit- 
tingly assisted us by posing as models ; yet, if the picture be 
ill-drawn it portrays no malice. 

Our aim has been to please, and to impress upon your 
minds a few incidents in our college life. 

With this in view the Class of Ninety-Nine presents the 
twenty-ninth volume of the Index.

Shall the Name of the College be Changed ? 

At the request of the editors, the following has been prepared by sending 
to Ex-President Stockbridge and fifty of the Alumni, the questions here 
noted ; the answers I have condensed, excepting Ex-President Stockbridge's. 

First. — Would agriculture suffer by a change of name to that of 
Massachusetts College of Science, or, Massachusetts College ? 

Second. — Could the work for agriculture be done as well by the 
present system now obtaining at the College, with a new name ? 

Third. — Are many prospective students lost because the College's 
name gives the impression that it is purely a college of agri- 
culture ? 

Fourth. — Is the College doing its best work for the common people 
of the State, under its present name ? 


I. "Amherst, November 19th, 1897. My Dear Dr. Cutter: — Yours of the 15th is 
just received and it relates to what is, in my opinion, a vital matter with our M. A. C, but 
I don't care to discuss it. You ask sundry questions. The real answers are obscured in 
a darkened box because the reasons are. I think I see how the box is locked and dark- 
ened, and will lend you the key to open and look within. The Key : The heart, soul and 
life of the College is most materially changed since its early days, atid not for the better. 
Question i, yes. Question 2, no. Question 3, no. Question 4, no. But it might if — . 
There, Cutter, you have it, short and sweet. With the kindest remembrances and regards 
for you, I am as ever, Faithfully yours, 


II. " Is anything to be gained ? I don't believe so many boys are frightened by that 
one word " agriculture " as some think ; agriculture would suffer to this extent, that a change 
would indicate that farming was unpopular, and would have a degrading effect upon those 
choosing that occupation. I believe the contmued change in courses has had something to 
do with lack of students. The introduction of nature studies into our public schools 
will make agriculture more popular." (A New England Farmer.) 

III. " In regard to the questions you ask concerning the name of ' Old Aggie,' my 
opinion is that it would seem inexpedient at this late date to change the name." (A Neiv 
E7igland Farmer.) 

IV. "Is there a name that sounds any better, that is more noble in its significance .-' 
There should be more practical work done in instruction as to farming. If a change of 
name is made, the institution will go flat, so far as any significance to the agriculture of the 


State is concerned. A change of name will not satisfy the farming public. I do not think 
a student is lost because of the name." ( AJVew England Farmer.) 

V. " Many prospective students, particularly from the farming class, would be lost if 
a change of name was made. You do not realize the great need of exact scientific knowl- 
edge relating to agriculture. I am trying to correct the impression that the college turns 
out mere farm laborers, and I am trying to teach that its objects are to train leaders for 
life work. When its reputation is made, we will want to copyright its name. Other 
colleges get students because of the loyalty of their Alumni." (Farmer and Granger.) 

VI. "The vState has already a large number of institutions; to change the name of 
M. A. C. would be a change of policy and antagonistic to these institutions. The aim of 
the college should be to make it 'the college of agriculture' of the United States." 
[A Nexv England Farmer.) 

VII. "■ N'nmber i, yes. It would take away from the agricultural classes the only 
institution designed distinctively to benefit that calling, upon the success of which depends 
every other calling. Every other branch of industrial work of any importance has its technical 
training school. Ahimher 2, no. The instruction now given is thought by many to be too 
much monopolized in the direction of other callings. ^\\& farmers are not sending their sons 
here because they are educated away from the farm rather than toivard it. Other schools 
and colleges are endowed for training men and women for the industrial callings other than 
agriculture, and all such would oppose any special State appropriation or endowment to 
separate courses of study and training now offered by them. Number j, no ; if any students 
are kept away from the college, it is the farmers' sons who do not find sufficient inducements 
in their calling or the training given here to warrant the expense of attending even so cheap a 
course of study. More sons of farmers are sent to classical colleges than to any otlier 
institutions. Fotirth, yes; I believe it could. Other institutions should look after the 
interest and education of the industrial callings other than agriculture. I am sure that the 
most determined opposition will be met from the farmers and that they will rally to the 
rescue of the institution." [An Agricultural College Professor.) 

VIII. '■'■First, I believe that the sons of some farmers would be deterred from coming 
here if the name should be changed. These young men would be those most likely to go 
back to the farm. Second, certainly it could be as well done, and perhaps would be, but 
upon the latter point I have some doubts, as there would be a tendency to devote less 
attention to agriculture. 7y;«-(f, some are very likely repelled by the name; I believe the 
number is not large, and to be less than the number of those intending to be farmers who 
would be kept away if the name is changed. Fourth, the college is not educating as many 
students as we would like to see. I doubt a change in name resulting in any immediate 
marked increase. The college must live down a certain prejudice and be more thoroughly 
advertised." [An Agriculttcral College Professor.) 

IX. " First, yes; because the agricultural element of the community would feel itself 
set aside, and would lose what little interest it now has. Second, so far as instructors and 
students are concerned, yes ; so far as progress in enlisting the interest and co-operation of 
the agricultural community. No. Third, yes and no; more students would come if they 
knew that the institution gave excellent courses in science, of which agriculture is only one 
of many applications. On the other hand, young men with definite ideas of what they wish 
to do in these sciences would probably go to some better known institution. MORAL : 
Offer the best thing of its kind and let people know of it. Fourth, I think not. Perhaps 
the best according to its lights, but certainly not the best thing possible." {A71 Agriczcltural 
College Professor.) 

X. "First, the agricultural interests of Massachusetts would suffer through lack of 
stimulus to the State's agricultural interests now given in the name. Second, it is doubt- 
ful, as with many other institutions where agriculture is taught, if mechanic arts or other 
subjects not associated with agriculture are taught, agriculture will be gradually relegated 

to the background. Thi7-d, the number of students is largely dependent upon character 
of Faculty and students, and the ability and enthusiasm with which they come in contact 
with the people. Fourth, I do not believe the agricultural department of the college is as 
efficiently working as it should." [An 4gric2ilhiral College Professor.) 

XI. "First, I think the change alone would weaken the hold of the college upon the 
farmers and that the result will be a modified course that pays little attention to agriculture 
and its influence upon the agriculture of the State, and in securing students would go out 
with the old name. Secotid, I do not think it could. Third, while some students will 
not attend, who might be induced to do so if the name was changed, I believe with false 
pride thrown aside and the college made what its founders intended, it will secure the 
confidence of the farmers, and the accommodations would be crowded to the utmost, as is 
the case here, where we have a hundred more students than we have dormitory accommoda- 
tions for. Fourth, I believe if the original idea as to agriculture was carried out similarly 
to the manner in which the Institute of Technology attends to mechanic arts, the college 
would be doing its proper work." {An Agricnltiiral College Professor.) 

XII. "First, I do not know whether agriculture would suffer, but am inclined to 
think that it will continue to survive as long as mankind needs three meals a day; if it dies, 
we will have to take up hunting and fishing for an existence. Second, ' A rose by any other 
name would smell as sweet,' or a skunk by any other name would smell as strong. If the 
college worked upon the present lines, I think the name would make very little difference in 
results accomplished. Third, I went to the college as it was agricultural, for I am 
interested in farming and fond of the country. If agriculture received the interest and 
study that its importance deserves, I think the name would attract students. Fourth, we 
hear too much about the common people. What the college wants is to do its best for all 
the people, irrespective of creed, color, nationality or former condition of servitude. I think 
part of the desire for change of name comes from the 'great American spirit of unrest' 
which makes changes often for the worst." ( Veterinarian, and connected with Agrictclture.) 

XIII. "First, I do not think agriculture would suffer by any change, neither do I think 
that science would suffer by making no change. I do think to cut out the word 
' agricultural ' would be understood by the agricultural community as a slur. Second, I 
think the work could be done as well, but do not think it would be so well appreciated by 
the agricultural community. Third, do not know as to students being lost. Should think 
that the plan of agricultural colleges is well enough known that intelligent persons should 
not misunderstand them. Fourth, I think the college is doing as good work now, both w^ith 
the common people and the uncommon people, as it can under any name." [Publisher, 
connected with Agriculttire.) 

XIV. "First, yes. Second, '\X. might be, but there are ninety-nine chances out of one 
hundred that there won't be. Third and Fourth, no, to both. The trouble is in the manage- 
ment; handled rightly it should have a larger number of students every year. Massachu- 
setts is well supplied with colleges of science. If M. A. C. has any future, it is on the lines 
of the present, but under revivification of college, State Board of Agriculture, Farmers 
Institute manageinent, etc." (Agricultural Editor). 

XV. " There has never been any healthy demand for the institution, and very probably 
will not be any in our time. Massachusetts has both good colleges in abundance, and 
high grade scientific and technical schools With these the college cannot successfully 
compete, despite the fact that it has never been so strong in funds, teachers and equipment 
as to-day. The phenomenal and fatal blunder of the well-meaning, but misguided and 
short-sighted trustees in planting the college at Amherst, cannot be undone. The college 
must be content, and confine itself to the legitimate work of teaching agriculture and the 
cognate subjects. I think it would be better for the college if it should be called the ' Massa- 
chusetts School of Agriculture.' " (Physician.) 

XVI. " If it should appear that the good of the institution required a change, I should 
make it, no matter what my personal opinions are. Taking up your questions, I answer : 

First, no. Second, yes. Third, do not know. Foiirth, no, no, no. Talk is cheap, and 
opinions are to be had, but facts are not easily obtained. Things have changed since my 
day, and I believe the agricultural department has not been brought up with the others and 
kept to the front, and made the most prominent of them all." ( Business Alan and Partner.) 

XVII. "Farmers' sons do not want to be educated at a farm college, and I am in 
doubt as to whether the change would not be the best ; yet I answer : First, undoubtedly, in 
time, agriculture as a profession would suffer, as far as it was taught to the students. 
Second, it certainly could and doubtless would, so long as the present professors remained. 
Third, in my opinion there would be double, if not many times more students under a 
different name. Fourth, it certainly is not reaching the masses ; but simply a change in 
name will not do it all." (Business Matt and Farmer.) 

XVIII. " First, no ; there seems to be nothing lacking except students. I think were 
the methods of Western colleges more closely followed, in advertising the college before 
the high school students, the fault would be remedied. The excellence and originality of 
the work which has been done by the college and its splendid equipment should be advertised 
through the entire country. It must be especially advertised to the young men of the cities." 
(Chicago Btisiness Man.) 

XIX. " First, if the purpose of the college is to be teaching only agriculture, a change 
of name would certainly be injurious. Second, no ; because the class of students drawn to 
the college would have no thought of agriculture, rather adverse to it, and to keep them 
the course would have to bend to their desires ; and agriculture, if studied by them, would be 
quite a secondary matter, and this would stand in the way of the best interests of agriculture. 
Third, yes, were members being considered, because a scientific school can draw from all 
classes ; as an agricultural college, it must be advertised as such. Fourth, if this question 
means along the line of agriculture, I will answer, yes ; because it is trying to instruct in 
branches as indicated by the name. I therefore say, let the name alone but manage the 
college differently." (Physician.) 

XX. A practising physician desires to leave his opinion to others better informed. 


I. " First, agriculture would not suffer, as the most important aid to agriculture 
comes from the Experiment Station. Second, do not see why agricultural work would suffer. 
Third, the State is small agriculturally, hence the name ' agriculture' has no attraction for 
the business man who wishes his son to be educated, and I am afraid that some people 
believe agriculture the only prominent feature. I also have heard, " Do you think that you 
can raise any better corn than I do because you went to the Agricultural College " ? Then the 
same parties will point with satisfaction to some graduate who has been unsuccessful in 
farming. Fourth,! z.-m afraid the name is misleading; there ought to be farmers enough 
loyal to the college to fill it with students, and it is a question if simply a change of name 
will remedy the trouble." (Massachusetts Fanner.) 

II. " Agriculture would not suffer; it would only suffer through the spirit of the Board 
of Managers, or the Professor of Agriculture. The college has never been successful agri- 
culturally. I personally like the name of ' State College.' I know of several fellows who 
would have attended the institution if it had not been named 'Agricultural.' The impression 
that a cheap, sloppy, unsystematic education goes with the name ' agriculture ' is abroad ; 
others think it a farm where wayward boys are sent. The ridiculous ideas of educated 
people considering the college are astounding. Thirty years have not educated them away 
from such ignorant ideas. Such being held by a majority of educators, injure the institution. 
I believe that the name of agriculture has decreased the number. The name has nothing 
to do with the quality of the work ; that depends upon the Faculty." (An Agricultural 
College Professor.) 

III. " First, I believe agriculture could in no way suffer. Second, the work which 
the college is now doing for agriculture could be done just as well, if not better, under a 

new name, although the present system of forcing every one to take agriculture, whether he 
has a taste for it or not, might not be continued in force. Third, it seems to me that there can 
be no doubt that students are lost to the college through its present name. With another 
name there would not be the need, which has always existed, of explaining that the college 
teaches much besides agriculture, and that it is an excellent place for those intending 
to be other than farmers. Many must hear the name, and without hearing the explanation, 
o-ive the institution no further thought, since they would naturally connect its name 
with technical training, in a line undesirable to them. Fourth, if students are lost to the 
institution for any cause or fault which may be corrected, then the college is not doing its 
best work. The 1862 Morrill Bill says, ' To teach such branches of learning as are related to 
agriculture and the mechanic arts .... without excluding other scientific and classical 
studies .... in order to permit the liberal and practical education of the industrial 
classes in the several pursuits and professions of life.' Does it mean what it says or not. 
The college, without those who came from other places than the farm, would have been a 
rank failure long before this. The words of the bill did not declare that the sole object is 
to teach only branches relating to agriculture." (An Agriailtiiral College Professor.) 

IV. '■'■First, I fear that it would. Second, I believe that the quality of work would be 
quite as good, but that the department of agriculture would be somewhat embarrassed by the 
relatively small attendance in its courses, as shown in other colleges where agriculture has 
been made an elective. Third, I am convinced that very many prospective students are 
lost because of its present name. Fourth, no, I do not believe that it is. There is no 
doubt that its work would be more far-reaching if the name were changed, and if agriculture 
were to be an elective. The name is an embarrassment to those not in agriculture. Per- 
sonally, I should like to see the change made, though that should not constitute any reason 
for it." (A Professor in Biology.) 

V. " First, no, I do not think agriculture would suffer by a change of name. Second, 
I think it could. Third, there may be a loss, but I hardly think so. Foii7-th, no ; I think 
the general impression is that it is only for farmers, therefore those outside the farming 
class, or those who want to be farmers, are kept away from the college." (Clergyman.) 

VI. " First, I do not think agriculture would suffer, but a change of name would be 
considered by the farmers as unfair to them. Second, yes, without doubt, if I understand 
the question. Third, yes, I think so. Fourth, if not doing its best work under its present 
name, it is not doing its best work for the common people." ( Lazvyer.) 

VII. " From the little I can discover, I understand that the friends of the college 
believe if they are to continue to receive State aid to any extent, they will have to convince 
the people that the sciences as well as agriculture are taught at the college, and certainly so 
long as the word ' Agriculture ' is retained, it will be hard to make the general public 
believe that it is a school where an engineer or chemist, or a physician, or a lawyer, or a 
person can be trained in the preliminary stages for his life work." (Lawyer.) 

VIII. ^"^ First, no. Second, yes. Third, undoubtedly, yes. Fourth, too much for 
me ; I do not know, I do not care. Who are the common people ? Over twenty-five years 
ago I heard a windy speech by a gentlemen who stated that the college was designed to 
raise up an enlightened, intelligent ' yeomanry.' The idea that impressed me was that he 
meant 'peasantry.' That idea should be ' squelched.' The common people can take care 
of themselves. The rich man's sons we have got to look out for, and it is to be hoped that 
they will go into agriculture. I think there may be a University of Amherst at some distant 
future time, and if so, I hape that our college will not be belittled." (A La-ivyer.) 

IX. " First, agriculture would not suffer, as the ' Massachusetts College of Science,' or 
'Massachusetts College.' Second, the work could be done just as well under the new name. 
Third, many prospective students are lost to the college, because of the impression that 
nothing but farming is taught. Fourth, the college is not doing all that it is capable of 
doing for the largest number of the common youth of the State." (Physician.) 

X. ^"^ First, no; the college's reputation was made largely by the work of Clark. 
Stockbridge and Goessmann, in experimental lines. This work is now done by law by the 


Experiment Station, and must be continued. Second, certainly, yes. Third, yes ; the cost 
of the study of medicine at the present time is very heavy. I know of no institution which 
is giving a better preparatory course for such professional life than our college. Rightly 
advertised, under the name of the ' Massachusetts College,' it ought to have loo students 
yearly of such kind. Fourth, no ; the farmer has had the college thirty years and does not 
appreciate it. The more that he is given, the more he cries out. Farmers save up the 
money to educate their sons in classical institutions and go by our own college. The 
common people of the cities and large towns should have the benefit of our institution, 
under a new name. Legally, I believe that all of the appropriations and grants can be held 
under the name of ' Massachusetts College.' " (Physician.) 

XL " First, as the Experiment Station is an adjunct of the college, and such effective 
work is done by both institutions for agriculture, I cannot see how injury would result to 
scientific agriculture, assuming, of course, that the general scope of the scientific work be 
not abridged. The college should bear the State name, but I am not convinced that the 
word ' agriculture ' is a benefit. Seco7id, yes. Third, I believe many students are lost 
because of the impression that the college Ks purely agricultural, dJidfrotn lack of knowledge 
as to the scope of studies pursued. Fourth, I do not believe the college is doing its best 
work for the common people of the State, not because of its name or for lack of name, but 
because the value of the education given is not generally known or appreciated." (Civil 

XII. " First, no. Second, yes. Third, yes. Fourth, no." (Business Man and Civil 
Engineer. ) 

XIII. '■^ First, in my judgment it would not suffer. The work accomplished and not 
the name is where the importance of the institution is, as relates to agriculture. Second, I 
cannot see how the name affects the quality of the work. Any of the bulletins which go 
out relative to crops, analysis, etc., could go out headed, ' From the Agricultural Depart- 
ment.' Third, from a limited number of students, which has been the rule for the last 
twenty years, one's judgment would be that the name had been rather of a hindrance in the 
getting of students ; as other institutions in the country, not as favorably situated nor with 
an equal corps of professors, seem to have been favored with an increased number of 
students. Fourth, the college is doing a very limited amount of work, and whether the 
name is altogether the cause might be an open question ; but any change or any bid for 
students would seem, if it resulted in an increased number, for the benefit of the people of 
the State." {Business Man and Farmer.) 

XIV. '^ First, yes. Second, yes. Third, yes. Fourth, no." [Business Man connected 
■with Agriculture.) 

XV. " First, no. Second, yes. Third, yes. Fourth, no. The farmer has had the 
college for thirty years and has almost repudiated it. A splendid plant is there, and by a 
change of name and by other means possible, a large number of students should be edu- 
cated. Men who are not going into agriculture, yet getting a knowledge of agriculture at 
our college, no matter what course they may pursue, will always be friendly to agriculture, 
and therefore, under a change of name and a larger number of students, agriculture would 
be directly benefited." (Business Man cojinected with Agriculture.) 

XVI. '■'■First, no. Second, yes. Third, yes. Fourth, I think not." [Business Man.) 

XVII. " Am heartily in favor of changing the name as a possible, and I think, proba- 
ble means of increasing the attendance and popularity. It is certainly time some decisive 
step was taken to secure that result, and I have always felt the present title failed to do 
the college justice." [Business Man.) 

XVIII. "■First, I do not think that agriculture would suffer by a change in name 
that would make the word ' agricultural ' less prominent. A large percentage of students 
attend the college for its scientific work, and I think the change in name would increase 
this number. Second, I do not see that the change in name could alter the character of 
the work. Third, yes. Fourth, no." [A Professor of Mathematics .)

Class History. 

Visions of the summer haunt me, 

And the autumn's bygone days ; 
Old September's cheery greeting, 

And October's golden rays. 

Visions of the so-called Freshmen, 

Standing now triumphant o'er 
The remains of 1900, 

Not the mighty class of yore. 

For, my high and mighty brethren, 

If my horoscope is true, 
There is not so much of glory 

In old M. A. C. for you. 

(IE, the Class of Nineteen-Hundred and One, began our college 
\\IL^iJ^ course on the 9th of September, 1897. We were, as might be 
expected, very green and inexperienced. Before us loomed an 
obstacle of unknown power, namely, the " Owl Club." Is it 
then to be wondered at that a few of us fell into the toils of the 
Sophs, and gave a free-for-all entertainment on the goal posts ? I need not go 
into the details of this little exhibition, but suffice to say that we, in our 
small way, tried to amuse them, and surely, the exercises were varied. 


Since cane-rushing is out of vogue, we can not boast of that victory. 
Nevertheless, one night we had the not-wholly-unalloyed pleasure of rushing 
the Sophomore class for nearly two hours. 

Ever since entering, we had heard much of the annual rope-pull, and, 
naturally, we expected a challenge, but were somewhat puzzled at being 
challenged to pull on the 31st of September. Ever since we have been able 
to lisp we 've known the little doggerel which runs : 

" Thirty days hath September," etc., therefore, the only conclusion we 
could reach was that the Sophs had somehow gotten control of the calendar, 
so we took things as they were and accepted it. We waited patiently for 
the date but, alas, it did not come. Finally we were called before the chief 
justice of the Senior tribunal, and his decree went forth that we were " dead 
slow," because we had not pulled rope on the appointed date. Not wishing to 
be thought slow or timid, we immediately posted a challenge for a possible 
date, on which date — I am sorry to say — we were defeated. 

As the next thing to be considered was football, we formed the team and 
played the Juniors, being beaten by the small score of 4-2. In two other 
games with Sunderland, we were victorious, with the scores of 32-0 and 6-0. 
These scores and our little experience made us feel confident that we could 
score on the Sophomore team — the Varsity would be more correct — which 
we did. 

In Military we are very proficient, there being but one or two of us unable 
to distingush his right hand from his left. These men are now drilling on 
Saturday mornings with the Sophomore class, who perform on the campus by 
special permit of the faculty. 

It is often asked us by upper-classmen and strangers, " What records do 
you hold " ? We believe we can truly answer that we have at least two men 
who have beaten all former hash-house records, and stand ready to meet all 

In conclusion, we would say that we highly appreciate the favors shown us 
by our foster parents, and beg leave to sign ourselves 

The much-roasted Class of 1901.

A False Alarm. 

(Tenderly dedicated to 1900.) 

Softly sleep the tired Freshies 

As the midnight hour draws near, 
Dreaming of their empty cradles, 

And their maters far from here. 
For one moment, deathly silence 

Reigns throughout each Freshie's cell. 
When the wild cry " Fire," awakes them, 

And loudly clangs the chapel bell. 

Quick as flash the sleepy Freshies 
Grab their clothes and rush about — 

Then they hear " Cap " Barry's orders, 
" Get the hose and run it out." 

Swiftly to the scene of action 
With the hose cart do they rush, 

Where they see the fire burning. 
Nothing but a heap of brush. 

Nothing but a pile of rubbish 

Which the " Niners," out for fun. 
Fired there upon the hilltop, 

Just to make the Freshmen run. 
Slowly back to old South College 

Go the " nits " with heavy feet. 
Cursing up and down the Sophies, 

As they think how they were beat.

NOTHER year of college life has passed, and for the second 
time we present our class history to the Index. 

When we returned this fall, only one of our classmates was 

missing, and he will rejoin us after the Christmas vacation. 

We now number thirty-one, six men having entered the 

class this fall. 

In athletics we rank with any class in college. It is true that the 

" Sophs " defeated us in polo, by a score of three to nothing, but in baseball 

they gave us no opportunity to show what we could do, as they would not 

accept the date set in our challenge. We, as is our custom in everything, 

claimed the game. We have nine men upon the college football team, and we 

have excellent material for baseball. 

We have had one rush with the Freshmen, in which the honors were very 
evenly divided, the Freshmen acting under the advice of the Juniors, at last, 
retiring from the campus, and leaving us in undisputed possession. 

We have had our rope-pull, and we have won. On the drop the Freshmen 
won two feet of rope. How delighted they looked ! They certainly thought 

the rope was theirs. But the expression on their faces soon changed. At 

our captain's first command, "All up together boys! Pull"! we 

moved them about three inches. The second time we got a little more. But 
here the Freshmen, instead of letting the rope slip through their hands and 
keeping their footholds, clung to the rope like grim death, and at the third 
heave were pulled out of their places ; after that they came sliding over the 
ground at every pull until their anchor, drawn as far as the stake, yielded no 
more. When time was called, it was found that we had in our possession 
ninety-three feet of rope, there being only seven feet left on the Fresh side of 
the stake. This beats any record ever made at Aggie. A few weeks before 
this event, having warned the " Fre shies " to be on the alert, we stole their 
practice rope ; this made two ropes that we have extracted from " Naughty- 

Nor are we backward in other directions. We are ably represented on the 
Aggie Life ; and in the military department we have twelve corporals 
and a drum-major. Not one of our men, excepting " F'at and Tom," has been 
forced to leave college on account of his studies, or for any misdemeanor. 
What more remains to be said in praise of our ability ? 

Among the pleasant events of the past year, we should mention our botani- 
cal trips with Dr. Stone, and Professor Smith. On each occasion we secured 
a number of specimens, among which, apples, pumpkins, and sign-boards 
figured largely. 

But even though we do go in for a little fun sometimes, we have not 
forgotten the object for which we came to college, and I am sure the greater 
part of the class, to quote one of our learned professors, is doing " good 
scholarly work." This is what counts, and our future success will depend 
largely upon the good that we get out of our college course. Then let us 
maintain a high standard of scholarship, and be true to ourselves and to our 
Alma Mater.

Alaver-rix! Alaver-rine! Aggie 

College ! Ninety-Nine ! 

As the Index Board commences 

Its funny jokes to find, 
The history of our famous class, 

Presents itself to mind. 

I '11 tell you of our glorious past. 

Our wondrous future now, 
And will complete my work at once, 

Then leave you with a bow. 

And as I take my pen in hand, 

I '11 do my very best. 
To prove the Class of Ninety-Nine 

Will always stand the test. 

T was October, the clock in the chapel tower was striking twelve 
(for then we had the tongue of the bell with us ), and nothing 
was audible on the campus except a few indistinct murmurings 
in one corner. Suddenly there sprang up all around, jets of 
many-colored flames which lit up the whole campus, revealing 
a horde of fantastically-dressed figures dancing around a huge fire, and as the 
roar of the mortars died away in the distance, the shout of " Aggie College, 


Ninety-Nine," proclaimed to all that the Sophomore class was celebrating one 
more of its many victories. 

To return to our Freshman year, when we first became acquainted with the 
gentleman who used to say : " Now, then, Mr. Keenan, what is true in this case " ? 
Alas ! we knew not what was in store for us. But although the battle waged 
" sore against us," we rallied and succeeded in winning the day. We were 
told to beware of the Sophomores, but they seemed very shy and gave us little 
trouble. In the rope-pull, however, it was a case of P=g t or Pull=get tired, 
and we tired before they did. But what we lacked in that line we made up in 
football. We won every game we played and became so famous that the 
Sophomores dared not play, for they feared defeat. After this, time passed 
quickly, and at the close of the term we felt that as we had gone through one 
term so well the future would be easy. 

Winter over, an event which enlivened the spring was our Mountain day. 
Accompanied by Professor Smith we drove through the Notch and around the 
mountain, returning by way of Hadley. We secured many rare specimens and 
had a right royal good time. Our attention was next directed to baseball. 
We went in to win, and win we did. You remember our famous game with 
Ninety-Eight, when they struck out to the tune of eight to seven ? In the 
ninth inning the Varsity pitcher got " queered." The crashing of cymbals, the 
tooting of horns and the gentle reminders of the fountain, proved too much for 
him, while the feeble yells of " Willis " and the " Turk " were drowned by the 
thundering yells of Ninety-Nine. " Jule " should have kept his head, for 

" ' T was a wonder he ever stopped growing, 

At his height of six feet seven, 
For if less of his legs had been cut off for feet, 

His head might have reached up to Heaven." 

" Pride goeth before a fall," and thus Ninety-Eight fell, and great was the fall 
thereof. There was weeping and gnashing of teeth. Selah ! But the crown- 
ing event of our Freshman year was our class banquet. Who does not recall 
with pleasure the eloquent address given by " Georgie " and the storm of 
applause that followed our member from Maine. On parting we called 
ourselves Sophomores, and felt that our first year in college was one long to 
be remembered. 

On the opening of the fall term, although we had lost a few members, yet 
with important additions we numbered more than before. 


Our first thoughts were of the Freshmen, but what of them? Even if they 
did win an inch and a half of rope in a hard-fought contest of 99 muscles and 
1,900 pounds of fat, yet as usual, when it came to football, "they weren't in it 
for a minute." 

Oh, the Freshmen were so easy, 
Would you like to know the score ? 
" Naughty-Naught " scored zero, 

While the Sophomores scored four. 

Again, time passed quickly. Occasional bolts and rushes happened until 
winter came, almost as a surprise. We had very little difficulty in beating the 
Freshmen at polo. 

Oh, the Freshmen were so easy 
And thought themselves so nice. 
But when it came to polo, 
They did n't cut the ice. 

In the spring term, every one became greatly absorbed in surveying, it is 
such a restful subject, you know, and the Plant House hill became a very 
popular resort. When the baseball season opened, the Freshmen were so 
timid that they challenged us for a game, the date of which could not be agreed 
upon, and despite their own manager's disapproval, they sneaked out on the 
campus and called the game, thinking they had the best of us ; but they were 
mistaken. Nineteen-Hundred, deluded by their seeming victory, placed their 
" Naughty " symbols upon the walks, an act which even Prexy condemned, 
for he ordered their figures to be buried under a coat of tar and feathers, 
beneath which they remain to this day. 

Returning to college as Juniors, we heard with great regret that " Chappy," 
the renowned athlete, had retired from active life, and that the Sharp (e) man had 
sailed over the seas. As upper-classmen it was our duty to take care of the 
Freshmen, but they seemed to be capable of taking care of themselves. 

Looking back over our course, we are extremely thankful for these things : 
first, that we have but two hours a week under the gentleman who hails from 
the college where they have four hours of drafting, fourteen hours of engineer- 
ing, four hours of French, four hours of German, and two hours of sleep each 
and every week ; and second, that we have such a thorough and practical 
course in the culture of the soil which requires such a large, healthy, well- 
developed — free from rust and rot — crop of instructors. 


But speaking of " hot times," the hottest time was our Junior trip to Boston. 
Will any of us forget the panoramic scenes of our three days' exploration : the 
Food Fair, with its samples, sights, "beauties" and fakers, also J. P. Squires, 
the Union Glass Works, how Melvin rung in and how Bert "queered" the salt 
man. Above all these we will remember our sumptuous dinner at the Parker 
House. Sitting around the long table, telling stories, singing songs and 
cracking jokes, the hours passed as minutes, and almost before we knew it, it 
was time to part. In the years to come we will look back upon our class 
gatherings as some of the brightest periods of our college days. It was a 
spread fit for a king, the Freshmen gave us, and was an indication of their 
good-will toward us. 

The Class of Ninety-Nine has achieved success and renown in many 
ways. ( We are the only class in college.) We boast of having a professor 
as one of our members. I refer to the Hon. William H. Armstrong A. M., 
M. A., M. A., M. A. M., late of Exeter, instructor in drawing. The gentleman 

Chief Dancer, Bill Henry Armstrong. 

is also a grown-up prodigy in mathematics, and in time may become a practi- 
cable surveyor. We have, in addition, our giant from the North. Who has done 
more for the football team than Captain Beaman ? Ours is the class which 
breeds leaders. A number of millionaires may be found in our ranks, such 
as Canto, the South American diamond merchant ; Butcher, the New York 


capitalist ; and Dana, who, by the way, made his pile from books, " Dana's 
Mechanics " being his " El Dorado." 

Smith, B. H. and Smith, S. E., 
What a wondrous sight are we ; 
Bernard now is very " Brown," • 

Often wanders to the town. 
Sam, the wiser, stays behind, 
He, his studies keeps in mind, 
Down to church on Sunday goes, 
Where they comfort all his woes. 
Smith, B. H. and Smith, S. E., 
Are the "people" don't you see. 

New York, Boston, Chicago, and all the leading cities in the country have 
contributed to our numbers. We will continue to be, as we have been in the 
past, well represented both on the baseball diamond and the gridiron. In 
athletics of all kinds we have made our mark. Not only in these lines have 
we been successful, but we have accomplished our first two years of study in a 
creditable way. 

Classmates, as Juniors we occupy a position in college of great influence. 
May we use this influence for the best interests of our institution. Let us 
continue our course for the two short years which remain, with such earnest- 
ness and zeal, that the Class of Ninety-Nine may be remembered as a class 
which accomplished all in its power toward the welfare and success of its 
Alma Mater.

A Deserted House.* 

l|AST summer, in one of my rambles among the White Mountains, 
I went to spend the day at a small hill about twenty miles 
from Mt. Washington. It was a perfect morning. The air 
was cool, yet balmy. It seemed more like a morning in May 
or early June than like July. I walked idly through the woods, 
occasionally scaring up a partridge or hare. The squirrels chattering over- 
head barked at me as I passed. Now and then a thrush or a warbler 
would break out into a wild, thrilling melody, forgetting that spring and his 
wooing were over. The cool, spring-like morning soon changed to a hot 
summer day. 

Suddenly before I had discovered any indication of civilization, I emerged 
from the woods. Directly in front of me was a little valley, with a weather- 
beaten old farmhouse nestling up against the hill on the opposite side. The 
dilapidated old barn was all falling to pieces, while the sheds, corn-cribs, 
and other out-buildings were in ruins. 

I went down the hill to the house ; the door was swinging on one hinge, 
and the rooms were all bare and empty. The walks gave out a hollow echo 
as I walked around. I went down the rickety stairs into the cellar. The 
air was damp and musty and a pile of empty bottles showed that there had 
once been spirits in the house, even if it was n't haunted now. I was soon 
glad to go out into the sunlight again. The old well and well-sweep had 
defied all the attacks of time, so I refreshed myself with a cool drink. I 
climbed the hill again and threw myself down under the trees to rest and 
enjoy the scene. 

It was now noon, and all nature, like myself, seemed to be resting. 


A crow flapped idly overhead and disappeared, a black speck in the dis- 
tance. A pair of hawks circled round and round until, tiring of their sport, 
they, too, disappeared. The lowing of a cow fell musically on my ear, as the 
sound was borne across the hills from the meadow pastures below, and the 
gentle breeze in the pines overhead made sweet music with the rhythmic 
chirping of insects. 

Gradually I fell into a reverie, and began picturing to myself the former 
inhabitants of the place. " Here," thought I, " lived a family happy in each 
other and in their simple country life." I thought of the quiet, cozy winter 
evenings around that big open fireplace, while the wind howled and moaned 
outside ; the bright spring mornings with the music of the birds in the trees; 
the cherry tree all pink with flowers, and the cattle lowing and fowls crowing. 

How in the long, hot summer days, the men would come up from the hay- 
fields and drink from that same old well. I thought of the autumn days, how 
the children would go to the woods and gather the nuts for the winter even- 
ings. I seemed to see that old field yonder covered with stalks of corn, with 
yellow pumpkins peeping out from underneath, and the children gathering 
apples from that orchard — now a thicket of dead wood. I thought how the 
mother had watched over, and tended her little flock. "Where," asked I, 
" are those children now ? What became of the father and mother " ? 

Two little marble slabs on the hill opposite caught my eye, and answered 
my last question. I gazed long on those two stones, with the word " Father " 
upon one, and beside it, on the other, was chiselled the name of " Mother."

Class History* 

AVING received orders from the editor-in-chief of the Ninety- 
Nine Index to prepare a history of the Class of Ninety-Eight, 
I at once began the formidable task. Not knowing exactly 
f,' what a history is, I did not know at the time whether the Class 
of Ninety-Eight ever had such a thing. On making inquiries of 
the President of our college, he informed me that a complete history of the 
class had never been published, but that a special bulletin, with full statistics 
of the class, would probably be issued in the spring. This, however, would be 
too late for my purpose, so I immediately set about procuring a few notes in 
order that Ninety-Eight might be represented in the Index. 

Desiring to find out what the Alumni knew about our little class, I visited 
several members of the Class of Ninety-Seven. In the opinion of these gentle- 
men, Ninety-Eight knew how to pull rope, and, if called upon, could give a 
wonderfully good account of itself in a good old-fashioned college " discussion." 
For the benefit of Freshmen, and also those who have never had the distinc- 
tion of being afflicted with a college course, I would say that " discussion," in 
college language, is a very broad term, covering anything from loud talking 
at the corner of South College to a rough and tumble, free-for-all fight on the 
campus. So much for the Alumni. 

I next visited our honorable Faculty. "Well," you say, "what did the 
Faculty think about you " ? Gentlemen, I am now about to make a statement 
which every man in the Class of Ninety- Eight will swear by, and which every 
member of the Faculty will, at least, cheerfully acknowledge. They do not 
knozv what to think of tcs. 


As for what the lower classes in college think of us — well, we never took 
the trouble to find out. 

Now for our own opinions. All the good things we know about ourselves 
would fill this book, but of course we are too modest to mention them (in 
other words, no one would believe them). But there are some things that 
everybody knows, or at least should know. We have the M. A. C. champion 
outdoor athlete ; we have the champion indoor athlete ; we have the champion 
wise man ; we have the handsomest man in college ; we have the homeliest 
man in college; we have the happiest man in college. This, we believe, 
leaves nothing more to be desired. 

Of course the history of the Class of Ninety-Eight, like the history of any 
celebrated organization, is more interesting if we know something of the time 
in which it existed. Recognizing this fact, after due deliberation, we have 
concluded that : 

The Alumni are beginning to wake up ; the Faculty, with a few exceptions, 
have each turned over a new leaf ; the Freshmen are still Freshmen; the 
Sophomores are real " Sophs " ; in fact, they are at times too real, but, never- 
theless, we predict that they, like Ninety-Eight, will have among their nvimber 
many men of distinction. 

The Juniors — well, as they pass judgment on this little sketch before it is 
published, we have coricluded that they are above criticism. 

In conclusion, our greatest boast is, that Ninety-Eight has hung together 
better than any other class which it has had the pleasure of knowing during 
its connection with college life, and its only advice to the under classes would 
be, above all things, hang together.

To Miss B. 

Tho' thy bosom appears like the drifted snow, 

There 's a heart that can cherish a flame below ; 

Thine hair has its Cupids in every curl, 

And thy white, white teeth are like rows of pearl 

That shine in despite of thy coral lips, 

And thine eyes are like stars in the moon's eclipse. 

There 's a charm in thy cheek with its crimson dye, 
There 's a spell in the light of thy soft blue eye ; 
There 's a thrilling touch in thy finger's tip 
And a magic dew on thy rosy lip ; 
And a potent power which I gladly own 
Exists in thy voice with its silver tone. 

What joy is mine when I fondly see 

The light of thy glance shining down on me. 

When thy fairy fingers I faintly press 

Or woo thy cheek with a soft caress. 

While thy sweet voice, swelled to its utmost stretch. 

Cries, " What are you after? Get out, you wretch." 



Professor Hipneau^s Experiment at the State University. 

N Christmas eve, 189 — never mind the exact year — Professor Hip- 

neau sat in his library at the State University, reading " Mesmerism," 

by Deleuze. Hipneau could not learn much from Deleuze, for he 

himself was a deep student in the science of hypnotism, and had 

studied abroad at Gottingen and Halle. The chapter he was reading 

told of a case in which a patient had been sent into profound sleep 

for three days, during which time he was taken to a convention of a historical society, 

a town meeting, and an afternoon tea; at all three of which he had acted in a very 

creditable manner. 

He ended the chapter as the chapel clock struck twelve, thinking that when 
opportunity offered, he would try such an experiment himself. Just as he closed the 
book he heard a slight noise, and looking up, saw the dim outlines of a Person in the 
room. The professor rubbed his eyes and looked again at the indistinct form stand- 
ing before him. It was dressed in a fur coat, and in one hand rested a large plum- 
pudding, while the other held a fine plump turkey. A long white beard com- 
pleted — yes, it was none other than Father Christmas, himself. 

" Hipneau," said the professor aloud, "you have been studying too hard of late, 
and must go south for your health. This won't do at all." 

" It is not over-study," said a deep bass voice. 

"But surely, Hipneau, you must be delirious," muttered the professor, "you 
have been taking too — no, I have it ! We were talking this evening about the way 
Christmas was kept in our younger days, and about Santa Claus, and I must have 
unconsciously hypnotized myself. That 's it." 

" Wrong again," said the voice, "and do not call me Santa Claus — that's the 
German of it — call me Saint Nicholas." 

"Well, then," exclaimed the professor, "if you really are Santa — Saint Nicho- 
las, just seat yourself in this chair, and tell me how and why you came here." 

The Person took the chair, first laying the turkey and pudding on the table, and 
crossing his legs, leaned back in a comfortable position. "Well, you see," he began, 
"it's just this way. The American children as children are very responsive to my 
cause, and profit greatly by my advice, but when they grow up into men and go away 
to college, I begin to lose my influence over them. They get new ideas into their 
heads, which are disastrous to the beautiful customs of their forefathers. Living 
in their dormitories, they think they are isolated from the world at large, and endeavor 


to introduce new and more practical institutions. They forget that their every move- 
ment is closely watched by the wide-awake public, and produces an effect upon it 
which, if in the wrong direction, is difficult to reform. I am tired of the way things 
have been run, and it's about time I had a hand in the game myself. This being a 
prominent university, I determined to come here and teach one of the faculty how 
to keep Christmas. I thought that would be the best way to let the people know 
how Christmas should be kept; and as I must go back to my business in an hour, the 
sooner I begin the — " 

" Are you a spirit, or are you a human being" ? interrupted the professor. 

" I am an ordinary man now, but of course when I wish, I can change my 
composition," replied the Person. 

"Ah," said the professor, "that is satisfactory. What do you propose to do"? 

" Well, in the first place, I want to point out that roast beef, turkey, plum-pudding, 
and such like Christmas fare seem to be going out of date here, and wines and 
expensive foods, of which I do not approve, are taking the preference." 

" No, no, I don't agree with you. As a medical man, I highly approve of such 
indigestible stuff going out of date." 

The Person leaned forward in his chair and smilingly said, " As a medical man, 
then, you are a fool. Do you object to fees "? 

To this the professor replied, somewhat stiffly, " I am lecturing, have a regular 
salary and no private practice." 

" Well, that alters matters," assented the Person ; and then changing his voice to 
an awe-striking tone, he continued : " But I am not here to trifle. You ought to 
know better than to allow things to go on as they have, becoming worse and worse 
every year." 

" Becoming better, you should say," interrupted the professor. 

"Base mortal," said the Person, rising from his chair and advancing towards 
Hipneau. " I was Christmas before you were anybody, and am able to judge the 
condition of the people. The hour has come for you to learn a lesson, and a lesson 
you will never forget." With that he advanced close to the professor and began 
making passes in front of the doctor's forehead. 

" Stop," cried Hipneau, " two can play at that game," and with lightning speed 
he waved his own hands back and forth, almost touching the temples of old Father 

"Sleep, I command you" ! ordered the daring mortal. For a few seconds the 
Person resisted the dread power of the scientist, but presently made a few attempts 
to renew the struggle, and then sank back into his chair a hypnotized Saint Nicholas. 

" Now, then," said the professor, "you see that we ordinary mortals know a 
thing or two even if we are not as ancient as you are. You were foolish to try hyp- 
notism on me. Why, as soon as you began I saw that your methods were old- 
fashioned and not based upon scientific principles. From the moment you told me 
you were like myself I determined to experiment with you. Do you understand ? 
Answer me at once." 


" Master," answered a weak, trembling voice. " I am subdued. Do with me 
what you choose." 

" I intend to give you the lesson, and instead of your taking me into spirit 
land I am going to show you how to keep Christmas in the State of Massachusetts. 
To begin with, you are no longer St. Nicholas, but Leland, a friend of mine from the 
West, here on a visit and to spend Christmas. To-morrow I go to spend the day at 
the Parkers in " Hamp." There will be a dinner, speeches and dancing. You are 
to accompany me, and take care to act the part of my friend, or you will get yourself 
into trouble. Do you hear " ? 

" Master, I follow." 

" Now he down on that couch and sleep until I call you in the morning. When 
you get up, shave your beard and dress yourself in the suit of clothes in that box 
beside you." Then the professor left the room, locking the door behind him. 

At nine o'clock on Christmas morning Leland — now quite a good looking 
young man — took breakfast with the doctor at a neighboring cafe, after which both 
went for a sleigh ride about the town. 

When two o'clock came they were at the Parker mansion. Now the professor, 
although very learned, was yet a young man, and, moreover, was engaged to the 
youngest Miss Parker, a very lively and pretty girl. At dinner Hipneau sat next 
his fiancee while Leland sat just opposite them. It was not long before the pro- 
fessor wished his friend was not such a good looking fellow. 

As it was, the young man had such agreeable manners and a fascinating conver- 
sation, which showed a wonderful knowledge of foreign parts and Christmas lore, 
that he soon became very popular with the company. 

Miss Parker, to the professor's dismay, was evidently quite charmed with the 
stranger, and after dinner engaged with Leland in an animated conversation, 
while Hipneau was left in the cold. 

The evening wore on and the dance began. Leland showed them how the latest 
five step should be danced, and all the while becoming more and more friendly with 
Miss Parker. About eleven o'clock these two were seated in a corner off by 

" I will always remember what a fine time we have had," murmured Leland. 
"Have you enjoyed the evening "? 

"Oh, very much, Mr. Leland," answered the lovely Miss Parker in a sweet, soft 

"You have been the cause of my happiness," continued Leland, "and perhaps 
we may never meet again." 

" Oh no, I hope we will meet again. You will often come and visit our house, 
won't you " ? said Miss Parker. 

" I am afraid that would be impossible, for I go visiting but once a year." 

" How funny! You are like Christmas. Christmas comes but once a year." 

" That explains it, and it is often enough, considering the trouble it gives me." 


" I do not understand you, Mr. Leland," said Miss Parker with dignity, begin- 
ning to think her companion had drunk more than was good for him. 

"Of course you don't understand me. You are only a fool of a mortal, and 
you 've not been bored to death for hundreds of years by — " 

" Oh, this is terrible," said Miss Parker, in a voice choking with indignation, as 
she hurried from the room. 

" I am glad she has gone," muttered Leland. " I am tired of living with these 
narrow mortals for even a day, but I don't feel this way when I am in my own sphere. 
It must be the influence of that confounded professor." 

" You 've struck it," said the doctor, as he emerged from behind a sheltering 
curtain. " You don't suppose that with the power I possess I was going to stand 
calmly by while you made love to my betrothed, do you " ? 

" So I supposed," answered Leland, "but in a few minutes your power over me 
will end, and I shall bear you no malice, indeed, I admire your skill; and not only 
that, but I admire your institutions, and your method of celebrating Christmas." 

'' I thought you would change your mind about a few things," said Hipneau, " and 
I am glad you have had a good time, but I must look up Miss Parker now. Don't 
go until I come back, for if you really are going to change your composition, I want 
to see you do it ; and besides, there are those clothes of mine." 

" You will see," said Leland, as the professor walked away in search of Miss 
Parker. He found her in the drawing-room, feeling quite indignant towards Leland 
and himself. Then he sat down beside her, and gently slipped his arm about her 
waist, while she rested her head upon his shoulder ; and, as might be expected, they 
made up in no time, and were the best of friends. He told her that it had all come 
about from his studies in hypnotism. He had hypnotized a young man, an entire 
stranger, and made him believe he was Leland. This was not the exact truth, but 
as much as the professor thought she would believe, and he doubted if she would 
believe any of it. 

At first Miss Parker was displeased with him for making such an experiment in 
her house, but when he pointed out that although the scene might never be known, 
the result of the experiment would add much to his fame as a scientist, she forgave 

After the explanations, the professor began an affectionate leave-taking, and as 
the clock struck twelve, he kissed her the sixty-ninth time, the last for. that evening. 
As the last stroke of the hour sounded through the house, the professor heard a 
familiar voice, for the last time, saying, " Farewell, may every joy be yours, and may 
every Christmas end as this one." 

This is the story just as the professor related it. I asked about the suit Le- 
land wore. He said it was found in the box, folded as if it had not been used for a 
month. Then I expressed some doubts as to the truth of the whole story. Then 
the professor tried to persuade me that every word was true. However, this was 
some time ago, and he has been persuading me ever since.

Prof. Cooley : — I confess I have copied part of this lecture. 
Chapman : — That 's cribbing. 

Prof. C : — Yes, but it's rather ticklish work to talk about some- 
thing I don't know anything about. 

Army [translatijig French) : — It means "those other notable persons." 
Prexy : — Then why don't you say so ? 

Prof. M — s : — I wish to beg the pardon of the class, I was wrong that 

Rice: — A cross between Bill Dye and Lib Cheney. 

Visitor at Boarding Club {looking toward the Senior table) : — Are 
those the Freshmen ? 

Prof. Lull {having ordered zvliole fish for dissection, opens the long- 
delayed box to find them already dissected) : — Please excuse me, gentlemen, 
M'hile I go out and say something. 

Paul : — No descendant from Paul of the Scriptures. 

The Freshmen have at last discovered why Professor B wears so 

many new hats. They claim it is not because his cranium enlarges but that 
when one of his eloquent lectures is filtered through his hat it produces such 
an effect upon it that it cannot be worn twice. 

Chapin {on beins^ awakened in Y. M. C. A.): — ^This is nothing to 
laugh at, gentlemen. 

Logic : — A Drum-major is the laziest man on earth. Gile is Drum- 
major. . • . X. Y. Z. Q. E. D. 

West: — To get pinched by Dr. is nothing to laugh at, but I can't 

get that everlasting grin off my face. 

MuNSON {to Prof. H ) .• — " Here are two apples I brought for yon, 

Professor. Will you please tell me my Mark ? 

Prof. B : — Has Dutcher returned ? 

Chapman : — No, sir. 

Prof. B : — Confound him !

Now^ Then ! 

" Where is Mr. Dutcher this morning " ? 

Chorus. — Sick. 

"Well, there will be more of you sick when the Day of Judgment 

Beaman. — When is that, Professor? 

" At the end of the term, sir, and — (class smiles). Oh ! you may laugh 
now, but I tell you truly, gentlemen, this is no idle joke. Mr. Smith, C. W., 
did you have any trouble getting to-day's lesson " ? 

C. W. — None whatever, sir. 

"I thought it would not trouble you. Just take the tenth on page 125. 
and put it on the board, fully explaining formula 29I." 

C. W. — I haven't solved that one, Professor. 

" Why ! what ones have you solved " ? 

C. W. — I have n't done any of them. 

" My dear boy, how much time have you spent over this lesson "? 

C. W. — I don't know exactly; I guess about er-r-r three hours (aside), 
it was under my pillow. 

" Well, I 'm sorry for you (this with a fiejidish grhi). By the way, Mr. 
Hinds, what is the sine of an angle " ? 

Fat. — The sine is, er-r-r, well, I know all about it but I can't quite explain 

"Gentlemen, I may as well tell you right here, if you don't remember 
your Trigonometry, you are lost, from here on." 

Dan. — Morally, professor ? 

"Now ! Now ! Mr. Beaman, that don't come under my sphere. (To class:) 
I tell you what it is, gentlemen, you men have got to brush up your 

Chorus. — We 've sold our books. 

" That don't make any difference ; you must get the lesson assigned 
you. I don't care whether you beg, borrow, buy, or steal the books, you 
must get them." 

Sam. — You want to look out for your own book, then. 

'' Thank you ; here, I '11 lend j/on mine. (To class :) There are some men 
in this class who think they are going to get through this subject without any 
study at all ; but they are wofuUy mistaken. ' Every dog has his day,' and 
mine comes at the end of the term. Why, you fellows don't begin to study 
as hard as I had to at Rutgers ; there, if a man could n't keep up, he had to 
get out; and a good many of them got." 

Doc. — Yes, that 's the reason we 've g-o^ so many mathematical professors 
around, ain't it ? 

" Before I forget, Mr. Wright, you take the twenty-third on page 143 ; it 's 
an easy one." 

Monroe. — I could n't get the correct answer to that problem. 

"The answer in the book is wrong, Mr. Wright; just step here to the 
board, and I '11 help you." 

{Both 7vork away, ivhen crack I something strikes the boaj'd near the 
professor's head). 

" Did you throw that peanut, Mr. Stacy " ? 

Stacy. — What peanut (this in surprised tone) ? 

" Did you throw it ? Yes or no " ? 

Stacy. — I did 71' t throw 710 peanut. 

" That's better. (To class:) Some of you men have got about to the end 
of your rope ; this horse-play has got to stop. Oh ! Mr. Dana, that means 
you as much as any one, and more so. I have stood about all I 'm going to, 
and if I have to speak to you again, we will part company forever. Now, 
then, for the next lesson, take from the middle of page 143, through the thirty- 
ninth on page 172. I '11 give you a short lesson this time, so that you may 
review the Trig, you had a year ago. (Prolonged groans and cries of ' Give 
2CS the (a) rest.'') There is n't a man of you who can't get this lesson in an 
hour and a half, if he 's smart enough ; and some of you will get it quicker." 

Class. — That 's so ; you are right. 

Turner. — ■ Just how about this ? Every Prof seems to think his subject 
is the only one on the beach. If we put as much time on our other studies as 
we do on mathematics, we would n't have six hours in which to sleep, eat, and 
drink, and we could n't be merry at all. 

Beaman. — Never mind, Harvey, over at Smith the lights go out at ten. 

" I don't think you gentlemen hurt yourselves studying. That will do for

All college men, above the second term of Junior year, interested in chemistry. 

Our college community, while possessing many advantages, has long felt the lack of 
enthusiasm for study and work. 

The regular college exercises are gone through with, but there is ever lurking a spirit of 
unrest and discontent. Too frequently this evil ghost stalks abroad, disturbing good feeling 
and interrupting the serious work of the college. To those whose diagnostic energies have 
been applied to the case, it appears that this unpleasantness does not proceed altogether 
from wickedness of purpose among the body of students, or even a few of them. It seems 
to be due to the absence of esprit du corps, of good fellowship, and of mutual understanding 
among the different parts of the institution. 

What is wanted, is some instrumentality which shall infuse into us all a spirit of 
harmony and of intense devotion to our educational work. Different individuals among 
the students and faculty, as well as organizations, have sought in various ways to attain the 
desired end. 

The K. K. K., now a year old, is trying to do its share of this work by cooperating with 
athletic sports and the several student clubs. At frequent meetings of its members, it 
cultivates the science of chemistry and sociability. By the Kommers, which occurs four 
times a year, it endeavors to awaken in all the men an enthusiasm for our college work. 

The club membership is not more extensive for the reason that some limit in this 
respect is necessary for the accomplishment of any practical end.

Owl Club* 

Having received many inquiries concerning the organization known as the 
" Owl Club" the editors — not knowing themselves — at the expense of much time 
and labor have obtaified a somewhat reasonable explanatio7i. 

ijHE Owl Club is composed of members of the Sophomore class, 
under the guidance of J. Seaton, and its object is the promo- 
tion of good feeling between the two lower classes. One of its 
minor duties is to call upon all promising Freshmen on the 
second night after college opens. The visiting committee con- 
sists of Hull, Munson, Crane, and Lewis — all bold and mighty men — who 
extend a welcome to the new comers in this way : at an early hour the 
candidate is gently waked from his sleep and requested — if in an upper 
room — to descend the fire-escape. To obviate any danger which might 
rise from falling, a rope is tied about his neck and he is then carefully let 
down. The instant he touches ground a delegation of small fry, such as 
Baker, Parmenter, Gile, and Stanley, unloosen him, and by pointing pins in 
his direction persuade him to move slowly across the campus. If he shows 
any sign of fatigue he is then carried to the boiler room and immersed in a 
certain solution which colors him the exact shade that he appears to the 
college. Following this he is put in the pond and allowed to sink three 
times in order to fix the pigment. This operation over, the body, to prevent 
taking cold, is promptly suspended over a huge bonfire, care being taken not 
to blister the upper surface of the body. The welcome usually ends here, 
but if the man is as handsome as Stanley, he is at once bound to a dissecting 
table, his chest laid bare, and his heart examined for " North Amherst tuber- 
cles " under a microscope. Should any be found he is operated upon, and 
the infected body is placed in March's sterilizing oven and heated for twenty 
minutes to destroy the contagious disease. To cool, the body is removed to 
a blanket and tossed in the air, higher and higher each time, until at last it is 
tossed through the window into the room, there to remain until it revives. 


Our Old Friend John. 

In appreciation of his great interest in the Class of Ninety-Nine, our artist dedicates this page to John 
C. McLain, a man sixty years of age. 

He is a homeless but very neat old man, earning his honest living by the work he does for the towns- 
people, and the few pennies he receives from the sale of paper which he picks up around the colleges. 
Money is of no object to John, but give him old clothes and picture books and he is happy. John is very 
spry, though he is old, and having won the sympathy of the Ninety-Nine men he is called " Our" Old Friend 
John." He is a very active owl forthe Ninety-Nine Owl Club which our artist has pictured on a preceding 
page. He was chief scout for the Ninety-Nine men when they caused the Nineteen-Hundred Freshies 
to leave their beds to respond to an alarm for a big bonfire on Clark's Hill. 

He was a prominent watch for Ninety-Nine men when Dr. W. was playing Tomcat about West's door 
in North College. John saved many a good man from the clutches of our divine friend when they were 
teaching Nineteen-Hundred Freshies to singe the goat. 

We are now most done with "Our Old Friend John," and we sincerely hope the Nineteen-Hundred 
and One men will also assist him as we have done. 


A Voice From Shutesbury. 

One quiet autumn day last year 

Wen I wuz turnin' fritters, 
A great four-horse riggin' 

Struck town, loaded with college critters. 

I heerd 'em nearly half an hour 

Afore they hove in sight, 
Way down by Harvard cottage 

Ware the road crooks t' the right. 

An' Jane, ef you '11 believe it, 
The city boarders stayin' there, 

Jest got them fellows wild 

Awavin' their aprons in the air. 

An' w'en they reached the blacksmith shop 
With the wagons standin' round, 

They whopped one up so orful quick 
It never touched the ground. 

Hurt it ? No. But I wuz mad 

To see them fellows there, 
Actin' ez if they 'd a right 

To cut up everywhere. 

So I hitched up ol' skinbones 

An' druve right off fer Brown, 
An' told him how some college boys 

Wuz paintin' up the town. 

Brown was sheriff then, an', sez he, 
" Keep an eye peeled 'fore your face ; 
We '11 fix them fellows yet 
Afore they leave the place." 

They druve right up to our store 

An' made the driver stop, 
Then gave a fearful yell 

Thet fairly shook the ol' hilltop. 


It skeered the youngsters in the school 

Thet kept acrost the way ; 
The frightened teacher locked the door 

To keep them scamps away. 

An' next they got some ol' pine boards 

Thet wuz real hard an' dry, 
An' built a fire near the road 

To roast their sweet-corn by. 

Then arter this they scattered round 

An' played a queerish game, 
With somethin' long an' big an' round, 

Ez I remember — football wuz its name. 

An' 'twas a fearful sight to see 
Them rush an' tumble in a heap, 

I most wuz 'fraid they 'd break their necks 
Wen they piled up — so deep. 

No wonder folks don't like thet game, 

It is so brutal bloody, 
No boy of mine shell play thet same 

Ez long ez I 've a body. 

An' then they did more foolish things: 
They'd jump an' dance an' yell. 

I never see'd sech crazy jays 
Outside a 'sylum cell. 

They kept this up the hul day long. 

Till, finally, jest afore night. 
They hitched up their plagey ol' team 

An' druve off out o' sight. 

Right down past Harvard cottage, 

Still shoutin' out their yell, 
Ez the city boarders waved them 

A long an' glad farewell. 

An' then I wondered to myself. 

Amid this hubbub of noise, 
Ef college would make Nathan 

Act like those boys.

Fair Visitor {watdmig campus on Saturday morning) : — Who are those 
men drilling on the campus ? 

Brooks: — Oh, those are the ambitious Sophomores, who are putting in

RiSLEY (to little Doc on Owl Club Night): — If I was loose I'd smash 
your head, but you 've got me. 

Ninety-Eight: — The only things that we have secured in our whole 
college course are two short, cheap ropes. 

Nineteen Hundred : — The laziest, the most obnoxious, the most con-

I — beg your pardon, but is not this the residence of Mr. Gus. Pender " ? 

" Suspenders, did you say? I have just told you that we deal in horse feed." 
{Dana, aside) "Go to the deuce with suspenders and horse feed, I am not 
dealing with that sort of goods to-night." {Zip — zip — zip — ding — bang — 
ding.) " Hello Central, you gave me the wrong number. Give me Pender- 
grass's, lively; I have no time to spare. Hello, is this Miss Pendergrass"? 
"Pendergrass, did you say ? Yes! well, that 's my name." 

Dana: — " Say, are you taking in any of the hops this winter " ? 

Pendergrass : — " Hops ! what do you think I want of hops, or beer 
either? All that I have taken in thus far is washings." 

Dana : — " Oh ! come off Sue, you are jollying." 

Pendergrass: — "Who are you, and what do you mean by insulting an 
old lady in this manner " ? 

Dana: — "Why, Sue, I supposed you recognized my voice as that of 
H. W. Dana, of the Sophomore class of the Massachusetts Agricultural 

Pendergrass: — "You block-headed little rascal, I can't imagine what 
you mean by talking to an older person in such a frivolous manner." 

Dana: — "Why! I was about to invite you to attend the 'Prom' with 
me to-night." 

Pendergrass: — "Oh! I understand, you mistook me for my daughter; 
if you will wait a moment I will call her." {Aside) " Susie, dear, Bertie Dana 
would like to speak with you." 

Dana : — " Hello, Susie ; would you like to go to the ball with me to 
night ? It is to be at the drill hall, you know." 

Miss Pendergrass : — " Well, what time " ? 

Dana: — "About 8.30 — 8.45. Rather short notice, but it's the best I 
could do under the circumstances — can you go " ? 

Miss Pendergrass: — " Well, I don't know." 

Dana : — " How long before you can find out " ? 


Miss Pendergrass : — "In just a moment, if you can wait." {^Leaves, but 
soon returns^ " Well — mother is undecided whether I shall go or not. Who 
will be there " ? 

Dana; — " Oh, the faculty, and all prominent students, and myself, and 
Mr. Chas. Walker. You know him, of course. There is to be great music, 
and — say will you be ready in ten minutes "? 

Miss Pendergrass: — "Perhaps; do we have to wear roses? I can't 
walk way up there." 

Dana: — "Hello plant house." "Hello." "This is Dana. Say, Mike, 
put me up two dozen roses and charge same to farm department. Hello 
Paige ; please send around a hack for Miss Pendergrass and bring her up 
here as soon as possible." 

Paige : — " Where are you, please " ? 

Dana: — "Why — at the office of Supt. E. A. Jones, of course, but 
didn't mean for you to bring her here but to the drill hall, understand "?

Principles ' per week." {Ding — dong — ding.) " Hello." " Hello." " Is this 
Mr. Dana ? this is Sue." 

Miss Pendergrass : — " Are you sure you have the invitations " ? 

Dana : — "Well, I suppose so. Doc told me I had." 

Miss Pendergrass : — "It would be real nice to be there, and I thank 
you so much for your kind invitation, but mother positively forbids my going 
on such scanty preparation. I am real sorry, but you see how it is. Good-bye."

Review of the Year, 

ijOOKING backward over the year just passed, we find that every 
department of our college has been materially strengthened. 
Extensive improvements have been made in many departments, 
thus showing materially the growth of our institution. 

The old target arrangements having become rather unsafe, 
Lieutenant Wright has secured the construction of a new butt, which is a 
great improvement over the old one. A pit eight or nine feet deep has been 
dug a short distance in front of the new butt. Two targets arranged so as to 
revolve on an arm are manipulated in this pit, so that while one target is in 
position for the shot, the other is down in the pit. This assures absolute 
safety to the marker and greatly facilitates the firing. 

As it was found that the Botanical Laboratory was inadequate for the 
accommodation of the classes, an addition of fifteen feet has been built onto 
the north side and the entire interior has been renovated. We now have a 
large, well-lighted room for Botanical work, providing ample accommodations 
and excellent equipment. 

Both Plant Houses have been enlarged. 

The two wings of the upper house have been combined under one roof, 
thus providing more room and giving a much better appearance to the house. 
The main octagon of the Durfee Plant House has been considerably enlarged 
by raising the roof several feet. This is to accommodate the growth of the 
large palm tree which stands in the centre of the room. The Plant Houses are 
among the first things shown to visitors at the college, and we are glad to see 
them made even more attractive. 


Both Experiment Station buildings have come in also for a share of the 
improvements. In the Department of Vegetable Pathology, the plant houses 
have been enlarged to about three times their former capacity. The study of 
plant diseases is an important work, and the opportunities for investigation in 
this line will be very greatly increased by the construction of separate rooms for 
special kinds of work. We hope for valuable practical results from the work of 
this department. The addition to the Hatch Experiment Station Laboratories 
has been completed and equipped in a first-class manner. The force of Chem- 
ists has been enlarged and more work is being done now than ever before. 

The Department of Drawing has received no little attention within the last 
year. A valuable set of plaster reproductions has been added for the use 
of Art students. Changes have been made in the drawing rooms. During 
the spring of '97, to this department was added the course in Anatomical 
drawing, which was a success in every way. The first prize ever offered in 
this department was received by E. K. Atkins, 1900. We strongly urge the 
introduction of a stiff course in Building construction, a course much needed 
and called for by men in agricultural pursuits, especially. 

Hitherto students rooming in North College have been subject to great 
inconvenience in getting water, as there was none in the building ; but this 
has now been remedied by the construction of bath-rooms opening into the 
West entry on the ground floor. 

During the summer a series of soil tests to determine the influence of the 
warmth and moisture of the soil on the growth of corn, was carried on under 
the charge of the Meteorological Department. These tests were instituted 
here by Professor Whitney of the United States Department of Agriculture, 
and will be continued next year. 

Last spring, in accordance with plans submitted by Professor Metcalf, a 
reservoir holding one hundred and fifty thousand gallons was constructed 
upon Clarke Hill. Lines of pipe were laid connecting this supply with all 
the college buildings so that we are no longer inconvenienced by the shutting 
off of the Pelham water, and the great danger from fire at such a time has 
been removed. 

In close connection with the improved water supply comes the renovation 
of the fire apparatus. New hose and other necessary equipments have been 
provided, so that we now feel that with these things and the increased 
pressure due to the laying of larger water pipes, we are as well protected as 
possible from a disastrous fire. 

Another convenience which is greatly appreciated by the students, is the 


Amherst and Sunderland Street Railway. The cars bring us into close 
connection with both railroads, and are a great assistance to those who visit 
North Amherst occasionally. 

One of the notable events of the year was the institution of the 
" Kommers " by the " Kollege Kemical Klub." This is a common affair in 
the German Universities, but never before had one been held in this country. 
The first " Kommers " was held in Boarding Club Hall, toward the close of 
the winter term, and proved to be a success. This meeting had such a good 
effect in arousing college spirit that it was deemed advisable to hold a second 
" Kommers " at Commencement. This gathering, thanks to the untiring 
efforts of Dr. Wellington, proved to be the event of the year, and we feel that 
enthusiasm for our college never rose to so high pitch as on that occasion. 

An unusual interest has been shown in athletics the past year. The base- 
ball team was much stronger than the team of 1896, 

Track athletics, which had not been practised for some time, were again 
taken up, and a meet was arranged with Storrs Agricultural College of Conn- 
ecticut. This meet took place at Willimantic, Connecticut, on Memorial Day- 
It resulted in a victory for " Aggie." This fall we had the strongest football 
team that we have had for years, as the scores with several strong colleges 
will show. Considering the fact that many of the men have had but little 
experience, we feel that the eleven has done very creditable work. We can see 
no reason why another year should not show still greater progress in athletics. 

An advance step was taken last spring, when a special catalogue of the 
college was published, separate from the Report of the College, and we trust 
that it will appear in the future. 

There has been one change in our Faculty since last year. Professor 
Leonard Metcalf, who had charge of the Department of Civil Engineering 
and Mathematics, resigned his position at the close of the spring term in 
order to engage in business in Boston. His place is now filled by Professor 
J. E. Ostrander, who has had wide experience in teaching. Professor 
Ostrander came to us from the University of Idaho, where he had charge of 
the Department of Civil Engineering and the Mechanic Arts. 

Last winter, for the first time, a series of eleven short winter courses was 
offered to accommodate those who could not spend the time required for the 
regular course. Quite a number of men availed themselves of this opportunity 
to spend the winter months in securing a practical education. The courses 
are so arranged that the student may continue his work in succeeding years. 
It is too early to say how well these courses meet the requirements; but we 
believe they are very practical and should meet the wants of many. H,

The '* Farmer's College '^ Boys Victorious ! 


[editorials from journals of JULY 23, 1871.] 

The University Boat Race. It will be seen by dispatches that in the College 
Regatta at Ingleside yesterday, the Agricultural College crew came out ahead, beating both 
the Harvard crew, who were second, and the Brown University crew. We congratulate the 
young agriculturists. They have shown what pluck and good muscles, well trained, can do, 
even without the fostering stimulus of hereditary influences. Let them take it as an 
augury of the noble profession to which they have devoted themselves, where firm resolve 
and indefatigable effort will prove more than a match for whatever obstacles may be 
arrayed against them. Let them go on and win, as they did yesterday. 

The crew have practised but ten days under Josh Ward, and their boating knowledge 
has been gained in an old boat, but they seem to be possessed of a good deal of it. Their 
boat is that which the Amherst College crew had last year at Worcester. It is 50 feet 
long by 19 inches wide. Ward says the time was so short that he concluded not to put the 
boys on severe training. So he has given them coarse food and a plenty of advice. " Let 
me have ten days longer," says Ward, and " I '11 make a crack crew of my boys." 


It was considered a severe strain on the propriety of things that the crew of the 
Amherst Agricultural College should defeat both Harvard and Brown in the recent Uni- 
versity race at Ingleside; but a discovery has now been made which renders the brilliant 
victory of the " Aggies " still more extraordinary and surprising. They not only defeated 
the old University crews, but the time-keepers now show that they made, in so doing, the 
fastest time on record. There was, it seems, an error of just one minute in the time as 
announced on the day of the race, which, being deducted, gives the Amherst Agricultural crew 
the absolutely unprecedented time of 16 minutes, 46^ seconds. We give a copy of the 
memorandum, so that any one may see how it happened : — 

Harvard . . . . . . . . . . . 7.23 

Brown ............ 7.23.19 

Amherst 7.22.18 

Time of starting ....... 7-OS-3i/^ 

Time of race ........ 17.46^^ 

We therefore declare and place on record our firm belief and conviction that the time 
of the three contesting crews in the race above referred to was as follows: Amherst Agri- 
cultural College crew, sixteen minutes, forty-six and one-half seconds; Harvard University 
crew, seventeen minutes, twenty-eight and one-half seconds ; Brown University crew, seven- 
teen minutes, forty-seven and one-half seconds.

By the Alumni and Former Students 

of the 

Massachusetts Agricultural College, 

June 22, iSg'j. 

In Recognition of 

■' »i|~=~c -» Thirty Years »- 7— ^t > 

of faithful service 

to our Alma Mater, 

and in loving remembrance 

as a friend and teacher. 

Tris*decennial Day. 

" And well an earnest word beseems 
The work the earnest hand prepares ; 
Its load more light the labor deems, 

When sweet discourse the labor shares." 

JEVIEW and criticism are essential to the establishment of any 
grand work. Indeed, it may be said that the reason why one 
institution endures and another falls is, that the one is the out- 
growth of the critical process, while the other is not. 

Not only is criticism a prominent element in any civilization, 
but its character is a correct index of the progress of culture in every com- 
munity, large or small. By criticism is meant neither the acrid harping of 
little minds, nor the destructive thrusts of vandals, but rather the thoughtful, 
helpful exposition of merit and defect; a procedure well adapted to retain 
the one and eliminate the other. 

During recent months the M. A. C. man has continually been asked, why 
are so few students in attendance ? Why don't you change the course of 
study? Why don't you change the name of the college? and endless other 
questions, some of them pertinent and others not. 

These queries should disturb no one ; on the contrary, their appearance is 
a welcome sign of life. But because they have become so prominent, and 
because thirty years of intellectual life has just passed, our college-men 
appointed the twenty-second of June, last, as a day for free and frank discus- 
sion of college questions, exchange of good-fellowship, and a hearty send-off 
on her fourth decade, to Alma Mater. 

This was also class-day, and only those features are here mentioned which 
specially marked the Tri-decennial occasion. 

The day was welcomed by the voice of thirty guns. At two o'clock the 
chapel was filled with an audience whose character was sufficient guarantee 
of the dignity and importance of the occasion. Mr. Charles L. Flint, '8i, 
President of the Massachusetts Alumni Club, presided during the exercises. 
An address by President Atherton of Pennsylvania State College presented 
in clear light and in genial manner many of the questions to which the present 
status of industrial education gives rise. Great interest in the discourse was 
evinced by the attentive audience. 

Mr. A. W. Dickinson, '74, of Jersey City, was then expected to offer, 
on behalf of the alumni, a souvenir to the President of the college, in recog- 
nition of the thirty years of his faithful and efficient service. Sudden illness 


unfortunately prevented him from doing so, and in his stead Mr. James 
H. Webb, '73, of New Haven, consented to act, on the shortest notice. In 
felicitous language, he conveyed the message of the alumni, and presented 
to President Goodell a loving cup. 

Although unprepared for the turn the ceremony had taken. President 
Goodell proved again to the boys that he is not to be caught napping. In a 
happy mood he told of his complete surprise, and expressed his appreciation 
of the gift. The ceremony closed, as it began, with the singing of college 
songs and patriotic hymns by the entire assembly. 

At 10 p. M., in the drill hall, the grand Kommers took place. The chief 
feature of this occasion was that every division and faction and sect of 
M. A. C. was there, and no one else. And it was the first occasion of its 
kind. Trustees, faculty, and every class of students, old and new, were 
present. Because of the absence of any other element, and the prominence 
given to college spirit, there was developed an enthusiasm which has never 
before been witnessed among us, and scarcely dreamed of. Mr. Barrett, of 
'75, presided, and after the introductory provision for the inner man, came the 
feast of reason and flow of soul. Amid cheers and class calls, and songs 
from hundreds of voices, interesting addresses were made. Professor Stock- 
bridge spoke with his old-time earnestness and wit. President Goodell again 
favored the men with a ringing speech. Dr. Lindsey spoke with his accus- 
tomed enthusiasm on the College Ideal, and Mr. Webb on College Reminis- 
cences. At I A. M. the jolly company broke up with singing. 

The Annual Alumni business meeting was held on the morning of June 
23d. Although this was a regular meeting, its unusual character ranks it as 
part of the thirty years' celebration. Notwithstanding the early hour of this 
gathering, and the very early hour at which the previous assembly dispersed, 
the attendance was large. After prompt dispatch of the usual business, the 
discussion of college questions was entered upon. Short addresses were 
made by many present, and so much interest was developed that scarcely time 
for the election of officers remained before adjournment was enforced by the 
lateness of the hour. 

And now that the Tri-decennial has come and gone, let us ask what was 
its real purpose, and in what measure was that purpose fulfilled. It was 
designed to attract the attention of former students and the public to the 
college, to its merits and its needs ; to bring about, if possible, a renaissance 
of college spirit and brotherhood. No college can thrive without the endorse- 
ment of its men, any more than a factory can live without the advertisement 


of a superior product. The questions above mentioned cannot be discussed 
here, but they must be somewhere^ for the college must either die or grow, and 
the manner in which just such questions are settled will determine whether a 
vigorous life or the opposite is in store for it. Such questions must be con- 
sidered by college men. 

The careless observer regards an institution, especially a State institution, 
as an impersonality, which, so far as he is concerned, has come into being as 
a matter of course, and will, through mere force of circumstances, continue 
to exist. A man of wide outlook sees in a college the germ of future social, 
scientific and aesthetic life, a place where the best education, that is leading 
out into the world, is to be found. And hence the most important of all 
human institutions. 

Our college offers to lead out young men from the third year of the high 
school, by a four years' course, to a point at which they may stand before the 
world and their life work, at equal advantage with those who follow the "old" 
six years' course. This opportunity is offered at very low expense to the 
student. It is a grand chance ; M. A. C. men ought to make it widely known, 
especially among the six hundred bright and worthy young men of this State, 
who now do not attend college. 

There can never again be a Tri-decennial, but banquets will come, and so 
will the Alumni meetings, and, unless signs fail, the Tri-decennial will prove 
to be the beginning of a new life and a new enthusiasm for M. A. C. 


.. -ftMin^. i ..... 



T is not the intention of the editors to dictate rules and methods 
for governing this institution, nor will we criticise the super- 
structure upon which the laws of the college rest. The 
question, " How to manage a college successfully," is one diffi- 
cult of being answered. Older and wiser heads than ours have 
grappled with this perplexity to find, after years of thought and labor, the 
problem still unsolved. When the answer will unfold itself is but a question 
of time. For a short time one scheme is experimented with, and then 
another ; the limit must soon be reached. Every man has a right to be heard 
who advances candid opinions, and these should be weighed carefully and 
valued accordingly. Perhaps there may have come into our horizon a few 
ideas which may assist in the solution of the problem. 

One question of which we would ask your consideration is, Why has this 
college not prospered more than it has ? It has the support of the State. 
It has the best facilities for the accommodation of students and for their 
instruction. Indeed, the members of the faculty have done everything in 
their power to invite prosperity. Our president, especially, has earnestly 
endeavored to spread the work and name of the college throughout the 
country. All that the faculty can do has been done ; and for the present, we 
shall expect no more from that quarter. 

Now let us consider another factor, the product of the college, the alumni. 
Upon them depends to a great extent the life and success of the college. If the 
graduates of a college are loyal, energetic, aggressive, the college will be the 
same ; if the graduates are indifferent and unfaithful, the college will assume 
a corresponding condition. We will not assert that our graduates are neither 
aggressive nor energetic — that' would be untrue — but they do lack that 
loyalty and devotion to their Ahna Mater which characterizes the successful 
college. They do not exert that personal influence which attracts men and 
which would direct to the college more men than could be instructed. Nine 
cases out of ten a man enters an institution because it has been recommended 
to him by a friend. Why do not our alumni recommend more widely our 
institution ? It may be they have reason for their lack of support. For one 
thing, our men lack the ability to express their ideas. Then the name of the 
college may prejudice their tongues, or the course of instruction may not have 
been to their liking. The curriculum undoubtedly might be better arranged, 


but the name of the college — this touches a vital issue which is first in the 
minds of many. The editors will not attempt to comment on this last, but, 
however, even if the name of the college is changed it will still be the State 
institution, supported and aided by the State. But, our graduates, something 
must be done to keep them more in touch with the living centre itself. Some- 
thing is being done to further these ends. The alumni associations are striv- 
ing to arouse enthusiasm by means of their banquets and gatherings. A 
slight reform might be made here. Instead of inviting the high State officials, 
it might be better policy to ask to their dinners men who come in daily con- 
tact with schools and academies. In this way the college would be working 
nearer the source of its students. 

One of the organizations in college whose purpose is the combining of the 
work of the college and the alumni is that one known as the " Kollege Kemical 
Klub." It is doing a great work, and its prime mover, Dr. Wellington, deserves 
the highest praise. The kommers held last commencement has been instru- 
mental in centralizing these two not very congenial elements. 

Other intents for extending the name of the college are its athletic 
associations. Within the past year great advancement along these lines has 
been made in comparison with that of preceding years. But if this success 
is to continue, better support, financial and physical, must be given our teams 
in order to place our college on a level with its neighbors. 

The college itself now attracts our attention. We have as fine a site for 
an institution as can be found in the State. To harmonize with the location 
better buildings might be erected. If rumor is true we will soon see a new 
museum and a hospital added to the number of our buildings. They should 
be good, solid, substantial structures, combining beauty and strength. 
Massachusetts is the foremost State in the union in learning and culture, and 
why should not her State institution be the best in the land ? The subject of 
building brings to mind a fact not generally known. A will, bequeathing a 
certain sum to be set aside for the period of sixty years and allowed to accu- 
mulate interest, was made in 1845 by Oliver Smith for the purpose of founding 
an agricultural school in Northampton. A further portion of the will reads 
on : " If the inhabitants of the town shall decide by legal vote that in their 
opinion this fund would be more beneficial to the community at large, and 
shall submit the question to the decision of the justices of the Supreme Court 
of Massachusetts and they decide in favor of the town, I confirm the same, 
etc. Then the fund entire shall be turned over to the new project." In 
1905, the amount will, have reached nearly three hundred thousand dollars.

A rare chance to obtain a liberal and thoroughly practical education. 
The cost has been reduced to a minimum. Tuition is free to residents of the 
State. An opportunity is offered to pay a portion of expenses by work. 

Three courses of study are offered : an eleven weeks' practical course 
in agriculture and kindred sciences ; a fo2i,r years' course leading to the 
degree of Bachelor of Science ; and a graduate course leading to the degree 
of Master of Science. 

Instruction. The courses of study as at present constituted include : — 

1. Agriculture, theoretical and practical, stock-breeding, drainage and 
irrigation, special crops. 

2. Botany, including horticulture, market gardening, arboriculture, care 
of greenhouses, types of cryptogamic orders, and histology, 

3. Chemistry. Practice work in the laboratories, qualitative and quanti- 
tative analysis, inorganic and organic. 

4. Zoology, entomology, the preservation of plants from destructive in- 
sects, human anatomy, physiology, and hygiene. 

5. Veterinary science. The hygiene, anatomy, physiology, and diseases 
of domestic animals, giving the student requisite knowledge for the care of 

6. Mathematics and physics, including practical work in surveying and 
road making. Meteorology in its relation to agriculture. Electrical engineer- 
ing with problems, and practical work with instruments. 

7. English. Care is given to the study of English language and liter- 
ature, that the student may be able to understand his mother tongue, and use 
it correctly and efficiently in the expression and enunciation of thought. As a 
means to this and other ends, Latin may be taken as an elective in Senior year. 

8. Modern languages. French and German are taught so as to give 
the student means of acquiring a sufficient mastery of the languages to have 
access to scientific authorities of France and Germany, 

9. Political science. The course provides for instruction in political 
economy, that a knowledge may be gained of those established laws of the 
business world which control the market, finance, and the production and 

INDEX. xxxiii 

distribution of wealth. Especial attention is given to the economics of agri- 
culture. Science of government is studied, that the duties and privileges of 
the citizen may be understood. 

lo. Military science. Instruction and drill in military tactics are 
required of each student, unless physically debarred. 

Advantages. Facilities for illustration include a working library of 
17,123 volumes, properly classified and catalogued; the State collection of 
birds, insects, reptiles, and rocks of Massachusetts, with many additions ; the 
Knowlton herbarium of 10,000 species of named botanical specimens; the 
1,500 species and varieties of plants and types of the vegetable kingdom, 
cultivated in the Durfee plant-house ; the large collections of Amherst College 
within easy access ; a farm of about 400 acres, divided between the agricultural, 
horticultural, and experiment departments, embracing every variety of soil, 
offering splendid opportunities for observing the application of science to 
the problems of agriculture. 

Worthy of especial mention are the laboratories for practical work 
in chemistry, in zoology, and in botany, well equipped with essential apparatus. 
A chemical laboratory for advanced students has been provided. For illustra- 
tion of veterinary science a clastic model of the horse and other additions to 
the museum have been secured. The Durfee plant-house has been recently 
rebuilt and greatly enlarged, and a new tool-house and workshop provided for 
the horticultural department. For the agricultural department, a model ham, 
containing the best facilities for storage of crops, care of horses, cattle, 
sheep, and swine, and management of the dairy, including also a lecture room 
for instruction, is now completed. 

Electives. Out of sixteen courses provided for the Senior class, four- 
teen are elective, Latin and advanced English having been added during the 
present year. 

Expenses. Board in clubs is about $2.50 per week, and in families, 
$3.00 to $5.00 ; room rent $8.00 to $16.00 per term ; fuel, $7.00 to $13.00 
per year; washing, 40 to 50 cents per dozen; military suit, $15.75 ; books 
at wholesale prices ; furniture, second-hand or new, for sale in town. 

Requisites for admission to the several courses and other information 

may be learned from the catalogue, to be obtained by application to the
