To all — alumni, faculty, stu- 
dents — who love and hold in 
high esteem their Alma Mater, 
this institution, our college, The 
Index extends a hearty greeting. 

Herman Babson. 

ROM the standpoint of the student his relation to the members of the 
Faculty is one of the most important of the many relations incident to 
college life. This relation may have been anticipated, in a measure, 
before the student entered college. While yet a member of the high 
school and when the claims of rival institutions are engaging his atten- 
tion, the fame of certain professors in Riverdale College reaches his ears and his 
choice is made. 

More important and intimate does this relation become during the years of the 
college course. As the student passes from one class room to another he takes 
with him the results of the influence there felt, either as an inspiration to more 
strenuous effort or as a mental soporific that is placidly satisfied with the reach of 
present attainment. The years after graduation, too, are frequent reminders of 
this patient friend or that judicious counselor among the members of the Faculty 
of the old college, to which "memory like a pilgrim gray shall love to return and 
linger in life's twilight hours." 

To gain the highest success as a teacher in college, one must be in close touch 
with the student body. He must be able to look at questions from the student's 
standpoint, to interpret correctly the changing phases of the life of the college, and 
to endure "the thousand natural shocks that (college) flesh is heir to." It is well, 
in these days especially, if he be an athlete; but that is not enough. It is highly 
desirable that he be a scholar, well equipped and well developed, thereby deserv- 
ing and receiving the respect of every student ; but even this is not enough. He 
must be a man and a student, desiring knowledge, intent in his search after truth, 
looking upon life in the college world with even more courage and hope than 
inspire the young hearts about him, and never for a moment losing faith in the 
ultimate supremacy of industry and righteousness and purity. 

In one of the youngest Professors at the Massachusetts Agricultural College, 
the Class of 1902 has found man)' qualities that belong to the ideal Professor. Born 
in Gloucester, Mass., in 1871, preparing for college in the public schools of his native 
city, Prof. Babson entered Amherst College in 1889, graduated in 1893, and in the 
same year came to the Agricultural College as Assistant Professor of English. The 
work in Rhetoric and American Literature was assigned to him and subsequently 
the instruction in Oratory was placed in his charge. Though giving his first thought 
and effort to the interests of the Agricultural College, he has assisted, in various 
ways, the departments of English Literature and Public Speaking in Amherst 
College, and from January to July, 1900, held the position of Instructor in Rhetoric 
in that institution. During these seven years he has written articles and stories that 
have been published in The New England Magazine, The Independent, McC lure's 
Magazine, and in other newspapers and periodicals. 

While the Class of 1902 have appreciated these efforts of Prof. Babson, and 
will take pride in whatever successes may await him in the field of literature, it is 
not for these that we now honor him. It is because, having been himself a college 
student, he enters into the life of the college student to-day; because as a teacher 
he has high ideals of work and illustrates them by his own example ; because with 
singular fidelity he devotes himself to the interests of those who enter his class 
room, that the Class of 1902 dedicates this volume of The Index to Prof. Herman

Class History. 

HE uneventfulness of a Senior's life in those things that make an 
interesting class history is at once apparent. For the most part the 
Senior's life is free from the struggles and. the strife which make up 
<{y the real history of tinder-classman days. Unruffled by imaginary 
grievances of an hundred sorts, content with glories won, the Senior settles 
down to enjoy, in such measure as circumstances will permit, the peace and 
quietness of the last few months of his college life. Pleasant as were those 
first two years, pleasant to look back upon at least, a Senior little likes to be 
disturbed in the quiet enjoyment of his books, to rehearse, even for the edifica- 
tion of wondering Freshmen, whose lives have fallen short of the pleasure of 
beholding the achievements of his class, the victories and honors that came 
with those early years. The writer of this memoir does not intend to dwell in 
detail upon those days, for it seems to him that their history is already so 
ineffaceably engraved upon the minds of men, that any mention of them is 
quite superfluous. It is presumed that all who have heard of the class of 
Nineteen Hundred and One are familiar with its history; and while the failure 
to once more chronicle our doings may seem a gross neglect, or an innovation 
at the worst, is it not true, in view of our achievements, that circumstances for 
the first time warrant such a course? 

In the year that has passed, save for one sad event, there has been nothing 
to disturb the peaceful current of our class life. There has been little of nov- 
elty and yet no monotony. Perhaps it would be better to speak of those days 
as they seem now, not as so many scene's, but rather as a constantly shifting 
scene in which the characters remained unchanged while the roles they played 

differed but little from day to day. The frightful phantom that loomed up in 
such fearful proportions a year ago has been conquered; Carhart is no more. 
Our insolvency has been cancelled before the law without the poor debtor's 
oath. The two bugbears of a Junior's life have been successfully vanquished. 
What more pleasing record to look back upon? 

Summer came at last and with it our chosen life as a class was brought to 
an end. The vacation season over we returned to college, where our different 
duties call us more often apart than together. Though time and tide must 
ever continue to drift us farther and farther apart, classmates in the truest 
sense we must always be. May the day never come when the memory of our 
achievements shall not carry with it a thrill of keenest pleasure. 

To the saddest event that has yet shadowed our life allusion has already 
been made. Into every life must come a measure of sorrow. In the death of 
George Crowell Clarke we were left to mourn the loss of one who was dear to 
us all. The saddest memory of our college days must be the recollection of 
his sudden death. G.

Class History. 

AYS the old proverb, "Happy is the nation that has no history." 

So far as material prosperity goes, the saying is probably trne. It 

would, however, hardly apply as well to a class in college. History 

is but a record of achievement; the student is, above all things, 

proud of the achievements of his class and of his Alma Mater. 

The form of achievement in which a class excels varies widely. Different 
classes have different ideals. Our Seniors, for instance, pay strict attention to 
the cravings of the palate. Be its fortune great or small, '01 will never hunger 
nor thirst. It is an impossibility to even imagine that class without plenty to 
eat and still more to drink. The Sophomores, on the other hand, are strictly 
temperate to a man, even declining sweet cider on occasion. The bulwark of the 
local Y. M. C. A. , they are regarded by the Faculty as the soul of honor and the 
epitome of youthful innocence. Their crowning glory is their scrupulous 
regard for the truth. For proof of this we have only to refer to the characteris- 
tic attitude of the class in regard to the stacking of rooms a year ago, the tam- 
pering with the Senior flower bed last spring, and the — ahem — borrowing of Prof. 
Cooley's rope this fall. Not a single member of '03 was connected in the 
slightest degree with any of these brilliant performances, as they themselves 
will tell you. We doubt if the Freshmen have been here long enough to get 
an ideal. If they have one, the large number of them who have gone into the 
band would seem to indicate that their highest ambition is to make a noise. 
Probably at this they will be a howling success. 

But how about '02? Well, we will not boast. We do not need to. We will 
simply let the facts speak for themselves. 

Our record last year closed just before the rope-pull. Everybody did us 
the honor of assuring us that we were certain to lose in that; and it wasn't 
quite the thing to win after everybody had predicted the opposite. Moreover 
it was highly discourteous to snake poor Corporal Tinker and his squad 
along the ground the way our team did that day. But then, we had to have 
that rope, even if it was only an old one, and have it we did, by a good nine feet. 

And right here it ought to be stated that the '03 historian got a little pre- 
vious last year. In his somewhat lurid account of the affair (written two days 
before the -rope-pull took place), he winds up by dramatically exclaiming, "The 
result you all know; why mention it?" He must have realized later, when the 
result was announced, that from his point of view there was mighty little rea- 
son for mentioning it. It was another case of "He laughs best who laughs 

After the rope-pull, football occupied our attention and we practiced hard. 
Sunderland, which had proved a stumbling block the year before, now twice 
bit the dust, and finally we tackled the Freshmen. It was a hard struggle 
but we could n't lose, and, finally toward the close of the second half, Paul fell 
across the line for a touchdown. The Freshman celebration was once more 
indefinitely postponed, and T. Fred Cooke gulped down a second long and 
bitter sob. 

About this time, or may be a little later on, the Aggie Life cheerfully re- 
marked, "If the Freshmen can win in basketball and baseball, they can still 
tie in the number of events won." Unfortunately for the Freshmen there was 
that big "If" in the way. We had seen a basketball once or twice before, and 
when the time came we did n't do a thing. The Freshmen danced around like 
a lot of peas in a hot skillet, but that was about all the good it did. The score 
was only about 24 to 4, or something like that. 

' ' For the sake of completeness, " as Professor Brooks loves to say, we might 
state that we also went into track athletics a little that winter and ran up about 
twenty points more than the Freshmen in that, too. 

Spring came, and with it baseball. We couldn't spoil our record and so 
we took that in 11 to 8. Everybody got pretty well rattled that day on both sides, 
but after all, "All's well that ends well." The Freshmen hadn't had a single 
chance to celebrate in the whole year; and they do say the Freshmen were 
naturally great hands to celebrate, too. 

This unbroken series of victories indicates what sort of a position we have 
in athletics. And yet it doesn't tell half of the things we did. Why, we spent 
most of the year breaking in a new Prof, and if that is n't a tough job we don't 
know what is. We did the job well and succeeding classes ought to thank us 
for it. We also made things pleasant for some of the old standbys. We never 
tired of hearing of the beauties of the Baldwin apple and the Concord grape, 
particularly if the samples of both were at hand for illustration. We were much 

interested to learn from Professor Brooks the other day that "a short, pointed, 
concise method of stating- a fact, a method, in short, which, other things being 
equal, does not necessarily go into detail, should always be followed in present- 
ing a thought." It is true the fun has not always been wholly on our side. 
When the Chemical Department assured us that we probably understood a cer- 
tain principle better before it was explained than we would afterward, we 
thought it was a doubtful compliment at best; and when Professor Ostrander 
declared that the class "did n't seem to have a very good idea of what work was" 
we felt that he was adding insult to injur} - . However, considering that our 
class is numerically as large as it was a year ago, it does not look as though an 
unduly large proportion of us were destined to "fall by the wayside." 

We are famous for being of an inquiring turn of mind. Nothing of note 
escapes our observation, and we are strong believers in the inductive method 
of procedure. A year ago we investigated the Belchertown fair. Last spring 
we experimented with the new cut system, and some of us met with disastrous 
results in experimenting with the "over-cut" system. Hodgkiss has spent a 
good deal of time this fall experimenting with the growth of what he called a 
moustache. It furnished a good specimen for microscopic study, but, sad to 
say, he let it go before we could complete our observations on its life history. 

But why worry the reader further? Our lesser exploits, are they not as 
innumerable as the grains of sand on the seashore? Suffice it to say we have 
had our fun, and good, hearty fun it was, too; free from mean and dirty tricks. 
Whenever we have danced we have always been willing to pay the fiddler. 
We have won and lost in athletics, we have scored ten-spots and zeros in the 
class room. But now half our college course is over and the time for play is 
nearly spent. We have done well in the past ; let us do better in the future. 
Serious work is before us; let us be ready for it. Let us in the time remaining 
prove that we can succeed, not only in the trivialities that we have met, but 
also in the things to come that are worth while. K.

Class History. 

ITH more than a year of college life to look back upon, it again 

becomes our duty to set before the eyes of the public a record of 

the achievements of the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Three. 

That we have not spent our year in idleness may be asserted by 

anyone who has watched our progress. 

Earl) in our course, finding that many improvements could be made about 
college, we took upon ourself the difficult task of bettering everything that we 
could. One of the things which early gained our attention, was the untidy 
condition of some of the Sophomores' rooms. So one bright morning, when 
we had a few minutes to spare, we went into these rooms and very carefully 
arranged the furniture so that it would show up to the best advantage. Instead 
of the old-fashioned, table-in-the-center, stove-on-one-side, desk-on-the-other, 
couch-in-the-corner style, we placed these articles in more prominent posi- 
tions, making many little nooks and cosy corners that would delight the eye of 
any lover of the artistic and the beautiful. 

And again, as we passed to and fro, on the way to our recitations, we 
could not help seeing and pitying the poor flag-pole compelled to stand out 
there by the chapel, in the cold and rain, without a single thing to keep it dry 
and warm. Our pity moved us to action and not being able to cover the whole 
pole, we put a nice barrel on top so that its head at least might be comfortable. 

And as we went on learning more and more from our lessons in experi- 
ence, we began to feel the effect of the lack of a social side to our life. So it 
happened that one night we held an informal gathering in one of the Short 
Course Men's rooms. We had a very pleasant time, passing the evening in 

dancing, singing and making speeches. But poor " Zeek " did not enjoy our 
meeting in his room and becoming somewhat "agitated," requested, through 
the President, that we should leave him alone. 

But of all the good times we had in our Freshman year, the last and best 
was at our Class supper. Without a single mishap in our arrangements, midst 
the sound of revelry and song, we passed the hours which marked the end of 
our Freshman and the beginning of our Sophomore year. 

When in the autumn we again gathered on the campus, our number had 
somewhat diminished, but one by one the stray men have been coming back, 
until now, with the addition of two new men, we are nearly as large as for- 

The campus rush was declared a draw, but we still had the walks upon 
which to prove our superiority, and this we did in such an effective manner 
that, moved with feelings of compassion and pity, and fearing lest there should 
be no Freshmen left, we put an end to the rushing; while some other kind people, 
whenever there is danger of the two classes meeting, provide a team so that 
we can ride, and will not be tempted to put the Freshmen in a condition for 
the hospital. And even when we went to take the rope away from the Fresh- 
men, one of the professors interfered, thinking, of course, that they were not 
able to hold it. He took the rope home and hid it under his downy bed. But 
his good wife, taking us for upperclass men, (and who would not?) gave us the 
rope, much to the disgust of the Prof., who on finding out that he had lost the 
rope, turned to a Junior and said, "I guess it must be up to me to buy a new 
rope. " This last rope, too, fell to our lot, won by the superior forces of our 
rope-pull team. 

Although we were unsuccessful in our Freshman athletics, our failures 
have not discouraged us, but rather shown us that we have the material and 
need only experience and training to place our teams in the lead, as was 
clearly shown by the success of our rope-pull team. 

Thus as one glances back over the record of our class, one must admit that 
Professor Cooley was right when he gave us thai title of a " Hot Class," and, 
boys, let us keep it up, and make our class "hot" not only in the pleasant, but 
also in the serious side of our college life.

Class History. 

T was during- the first days of September that a report circulated 
through Amherst that a dime museum had come there to take up 
its headquarters. This has since proved to be a mistake, but the 
residents of Amherst can hardly be blamed for such conclusions, 
for it was during these days that the Freshman class with its fat man, small 
men, and men with strange names arrived on Aggie's campus. 

Long' will we remember the experiences of those opening days, and some 
of us will remember them longer than others. We cannot forget how one of 
our members furnished amusement for certain members of the class above us; 
of the friendly (?) calls which others made; of the pig which was put in the 
parlor; of the chaos which prevailed among us; of the tears which we shed 
when our beloved mathematical professor left us for a time all too short, and 
of the first class meeting, when our president-elect was so overcome with grat- 
itude that he said on reaching the chair, "Gentlemen, I am much pleased with 
your choice." 

The chief virtues and characteristics of the class of 1904 are too numerous 
to mention, but we cannot refrain from writing what the Amherst Record said 
concerning us a few days after our entrance here: "The class contains some 
excellent material both from the scholastic and athletic standpoint. The mem- 
bers entered with fewer conditions than usual, and there are some football 
players that will add strength to the team this fall." 

Are you ready? Get set! Grind! It seemed to us that this was the way 
all of our professors wished us to start on our college work. Two of our mem- 


bers ground so hard that they were soon promoted to the Sophomore class. 
There is nothing like a good beginning. 

Then, as we expected, came the Sophomore-Freshman rush. After we 
had waited a few hours in breathless (?) silence around South College, our 
foe appeared, and we, willing to take the initiative, went out to meet them. 
Once, twice, thrice were we attacked and driven in numerous directions, but 
not defeated. The rush was declared a draw. We believe the results would 
have been different had the Freshmen known all of their own men, and had 
they boarded at the Hash House a year. 

Later on came the rope-pulls. The first pull took place north of the Col- 
lege grounds and was an exciting contest in more ways than two. Spectators 
were numerous, though late, and it was difficult to decide at times which class 
would win. We have heard no official report of the results of the contest, but 
we feel sure that Professor Cooley, or possibly his wife, could give any desired 
information. A few days later the prepared-for rope-pull took place on the campus 
and a new rope was used. I wonder why. The Sophomores won by eleven 
feet, much of which they obtained on the drop. We were defeated, but even 
defeat has its lessons. Without defeat there could be no victory; and often- 
times defeat is worth more than victory, as it brings out the weak points as 
well as the strong, teaching us to remedy the things in which we are deficient, 
and to strengthen the things in which we excel. 

' ' Let us then be up and doing, 
With a heart for any fate ; 
Still achieving; still pursuing, 
Learn to labor and to wait. " 

Although we are neither a prophet, nor the son of a prophet, we think we 
are safe in saying that we will have a baseball team next spring which will be 
the envy of other college classes. Many of our members have received excel- 
lent training on winning preparatory school teams. Concerning our football 
team we will not prophesy. 

We must not forget to mention here a Freshman secret society, the 
Sagamore Seven, a body of men united for the purpose of sociability and 
mutual help. 

Our members are well represented in the various college associations. The 
'varsity football team has drawn two men from our ranks and another acts as 
substitute. Several of us are members of the choir, glee club, and two-thirds 
of the cadet band is composed of members of our class. Religiously we are 
strong, and perhaps no little of this is due to the ''little minister," who always 
tries to set us a good example. The Freshman Bible class is the largest in the 
history of the college and numbers twenty-three members. 

In closing perhaps a little advice is expedient. Realize that you are here 
for a purpose — for the purpose of educating yourselves, body, mind, soul, for 
your life's work. Be not satisfied with a one-sided development, but use all of 
the opportunities offered here and you will be an honor not only to your 
friends but also to the State College of the Old Bay State.

In the Ravine. 

(Written for The Index.) 

Down the ravine where the little brook gurgles — 

Where the grass grows rank, and the weeds grow ta'.I— 

There in the tangle of briers and nettles 

I found my flower, the prize of them all. 

Embryo botanists all had o'erlooked it — 

None knew its value — all passed it by: 
There 'midst the rubbage from out the old college 

They saw it— they spurned it— they left it to die. 

Oft from its petals of royal old purple, 

Had I sipped its sweet nectar — 't was ever renewed: — 
Oft had its fragrance stayed by me in dreamland, 

Fresh with the odor that steals from the wood. 

Well I remember the first time I spied it: — 

Hastened to pluck it, and bear it away. 
Long it adorned my humble wood-mantel 

To refresh me at night, aDd beguile me by day. 

Alas! now the glory of its youth is departed! 

Only remembrance and this fragment are mine. 
Wouldst thou know this species I found in the gully ? 

'Twas the flower-de-luce from my old broken stein!

Percy F. Felch was born in Ayer, Mass., on March 5, 1878. His father 
died in July of 1883, and about one year later the widow with her six-year 
old son moved to Worcester, where they lived until the date of Felch's en- 
trance into college. He received his early education in the public schools of 
Worcester, in addition to spending one year at school at Andover, N. H. He 
entered the Massachusetts Agricultural College in the fall of 1893, remaining 
for but one year. He re-entered in the fall of 1897 as a member of the Sopho- 
more class, completing his course with that class and being graduated on June 
20, 1900. He remained in Amherst after his graduation until the time of his 
death, continuing his studies for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Ento- 

During his college course Felch was a faithful student, attaining a good 
rank in his studies. He was of a quiet and retiring disposition, and a lover 
of music, spending considerable time with his cornet. He was a member of 
the College Choir and of the Glee Club, and the author of the 1900 Class Song. 
He was also a member of the Natural History Society, the Y. M. C. A., Col- 
lege Shakespearean Club and the Ninety-Nine track team.

3?trH .3pnl IS, 1900. 

George Crowell Clarke was born in Topsfield, Mass., August 29, 1879. 
When eight vears of age he united with the Methodist Church. His 
father being called, b} r his duties as clergyman in the Methodist Episcopal 
Church, from place to place, George's boyhood and early youth was spent in 
several towns. His early education was obtained in the public schools of 
Conway, Chicopee and Maiden. In the fall of 1897 he entered the Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College, from which he would have been graduated in 1901. 

April 11 he returned to his home in Winthrop, Mass., to help his 
parents in the moving of their household goods to Lowell. On the follow- 
ing Sunday he was taken ill with what thought at first to be only a slight in- 
dication of tonsilitis, but on Monday he grew rapidly worse, and symptoms of 
diphtheria appeared. Everything which the best medical skill and constant 
and loving care could do was done, but without avail. He passed away on 
Wednesday, April 18, having been away from College just a week. 

His parents are left to mourn the loss of a dutiful and loving son. His 
pleasant face and cheerful disposition made him very popular among his col- 
lege mates who feel that in him they have lost a true brother, a hard and 
faithful worker, an upright young man, a kind and constant friend. He was 
a member of the College Y. M. C. A. and the O. T. V. Fraternity. 


In Memory of

Our comrade, yours and mine, he was till Death 

Bereft us. Tribute would we pay to one 

Whose life was of our own a part ; who, gone 

From all that earth can give, or man's weak breath 

Can utter in his praise, now wears a wreath 

For deeds in life so well and nobly done, 

And all were made to mourn whom Death alone 

Could take away; and Death must e'en bequeath 

To us the memory of that genial face. 

The character so nobly formed and cast, 

The manly heart, the spirit "crystal clear," 

Had won him friends, success and honored place 

Among his fellows. Greeted to the last 

And ever cherished was his presence here.

Review of the Year. 

PON other pages of this volume the reader will find in detail most 
of the important events of the past year. In our Review of the 
Year, it is our purpose to give an account of events of a more 
comprehensive nature. In every college there occur changes 
which may have an important influence upon the policy and progress of the 
institution, and there are other events of minor importance which belong to 
the routine work of the year. We believe that the past year has not been 
void of events of the former character. 

Through the untiring efforts of President Goodell and others we have 
been saved from the danger which, in the shape of the Homestead Bill in 
Congress, threatened to deprive us of our revenue from the national govern- 
ment. He was also successful in his endeavor to obtain a more sufficient 
income from our state government, securing an additional appropriation of 
eight thousand dollars a year for the term of four years. This puts the Col- 
lege upon a more secure financial foundation and paves the way for many 
needed improvements in the future. 

An act of Congress which affects our College was passed last June, 
whereby all congressional publications of the nature of public documents will 
be sent regularly to our College. The documents are of great value for 
reference and will materially add to the value of our Library. 

Our registrar, Prof. Lull, has been provided with an office in South 
College, just behind the President's office, and he can be seen by the students 
at regular office hours. He now also has charge of the students' absences. 

There have been some slight changes in our Faculty and curriculum. Mr. 
G. F. Babb has been appointed instructor in French, to relieve the President 
from his too onerous duties. The fellowship in chemistry with the title of 
Instructor has been awarded to Mr. G. F. Parmenter, of the class of 1900. 

The metric system and descriptive geography have been dropped from 
the entrance requirements, an increased amount of English being required 
in their place. Bookkeeping has been dropped from the studies of the Fresh- 
man year, German has been added to the studies of the Sophomore year, and 
French has been made elective in the Senior year. Both French and German 
arc of great value to the scientific student and wc believe that the additions 

mentioned are a step in advance. Prof. Babson has taken charge of the work 
in oratory of the Junior class and now has full charge of this department of 
work in our College. 

On January 11, Capt. John Anderson, U. S. A., retired, of Belchertown, 
was appointed Military Instructor for the' College. The work of our Military 
Department had been suspended in April of 1898 because, owing to our war 
with Spain, we were unable to secure a proper instructor. Captain Anderson 
therefore found many obstacles to overcome. The Senior class was the only 
one having had more than a year of drill. The Junior class had had but part 
of one year and the Sophomore and Freshman classes none whatever. As 
but part of a school year remained, the Seniors were excused from drill and 
the battalion was reorganized from the three lower classes. By the last of 
June the students had made sufficient progress to give an exhibition drill at 
Commencement. Conditions are more favorable this year and we may expect 
this department of our College to regain its former state of efficiency in the 
near future. 

The ten per cent cut system has been extended to include all of our studies 
and it seems to be working successfull} 7 . It relieves the instructors from the 
bother of looking after excuses and gives the student time which he often 
needs, without his being obliged to invent a plausible reason for taking it, as 
was man}' times the case, we fear, under the old system. 

There have been many changes of minor importance the past year, all of 
which we believe have been in the line of progress. The English recitation 
room in the Drill Hall has been fitted with steam heat and a lavatory has 
been put in. The Zoological recitation room has received several cabinets 
which enable the department to better accommodate the models and specimens 
used in illustrating its work. The Reading Room has been newly papered 
and new periodicals have been added to it. 

Athletics are in a good condition. Our baseball team of the past season 
did as good work as could have been expected from an entirely new team. 
We were unable to secure a meet in track athletics with the exception of 
a practice meet with Amherst. We lost several good men from our football 
team in the class of 1900, but have gained others and the scores have been 
gratifying. Our College can never take the rank in athletics that it deserves 
until we secure an athletic field. We hope that we may have one in the not 
very distant future. 

The opening of another school year has brought to us an entering class of 
over forty men and it seems to be made up of very promising material. The 
esprit de corps of the College is good and we expect that this year is to be one 
of the most successful in the history of our College. 

A Prologue to "Aggie Tales." 

With apologies to Chaucer. 

When that September with its days so coole, 

Auguste's fierce heat hath tempered as by rule; 

When vineyards 'gin to show their clusters fine, 

And melons hang too heavy on the vine ; 

When fruits of all kinds come in largest measure, 

And cider-mills fill many hearts with pleasure; 

When footballs exercise on youthe their potent charme. 

And goal-posts spring to life on every farme ; 

Then longen college folke for cap and gowne, 

And college yells ring out from every towne; 

But specially from every shire's ende 

Of all our land to Amherst fair they wende, 

Another year to spende in Aggie's walles, 

And learning master in her classic halles. 

Bifel that in that season on a day, 

By Aggie's older Dorm., there as I lay, 

Ready to take my five conditions 

Which for vacation study were such boons, 

There came upon our campus, broad and greene, 

As freshe a gang as I had ever seene. 

A motley crew, by a-venture y-falle 

In fellowship and Aggies were they all. 

But while } r ou still have patience a-plenty 

I will describe for you of these some ten or twenty 

Of various sort who most have me imprest, 

And to describe them I will do my best: — 

A Knight there was, and he a wondrous man, 
Who from the time that he first began 
To walk or talk did think in words too longe. 
To use short, common phrase he thought was wronge ; 
Words of four syllables and nothing less he used, 
And sentences of equal length abused. 
But when he drilled he stood quite near the foote, 
And what was more, deserved the place to boote. 

Another Knight there was and he was older: 
He came from Belchertown and so was bolder ; 
So aged was he that his highest joy 
Was telling of his prowess when a boy: 
Of how he ran the Gypsy Moth Commission, 
And drank their Paris green without getting permission ; 
Of how he lived a month without once sleeping, 
And other tales not hardly worth the keeping. 


A Friar there was, a wanton and a merry, 
A noble youth, of lordly presence very. 
Full many a maiden knew he in the towne, 
Indeed 'twas there he won his chief renowne. 
He may have thought all other sports too tame, 
Now can you guess that Hodgkiss was his name? 
But in the end he will come out all righte, 
Unless Jack Frost his budding hopes shall blighte. 

A Frankelyn was in this multitude, 
Light was his hair and he was young and goode, 
To prayer meetings went he, as was righte, 
But after they were over liked to fighte. 
As athlete and as scholar he was noted, 
And to his sweater was he most devoted. 
He was a man who always did his beste, 
But then you see, he roomed with Nelson Weste. 

A Cook there was, not only one but three ; 
If one is good three must be beste, you see. 
Now Cooke the eldest was a man of mighte. 
As Aggie's football captain was all righte. 
Full many a victory for the team did snatche, 
And only once ran up against his matche. 
But then he found, to his exceeding bother, 
" Too many Cooks may sometimes spoil the brothe. 

Our Cook, the second, was of baseball fame, 
He won the M and eke a worthy name. 
He spent his time amidst Doc. Paige's bones, 
In leisure moments aided Mr. Jones. 

And Cook the third, though nephew of the senior 
Was modest quite and gentle in demeanor. 

Of Smiths galore we had a worthy paire, 
And one was short and one was somewhat spare. 
The latter at the Plant House loved to worke, 
Could " put in time," yet never seem to shirke. 
The other was a cherub, mild and meeke, 
To find his equal long you'd have to seeke. 
He spent his time in learning facts by rote, 
And to his lessons hours would devote; 
From text books he could rattle off long pages 
If well wound up between the different stages. 

A Webster, too, was numbered in the bande, 
Though little known, a stranger to our lande. 
He often from old Aggie's grounds did roame, 
His home in Hamp., he spent his time at home. 

A Cooley also with them might be founde, 
When meal time came he always was arounde. 
Ten records at the Hash House did he take; 
Full oft he gobbled down ten pounds of cake; 


Sauce, puddings, pies, he cared not what the stuffe, 
And yet the boy could never get enoughe. 

A Carpenter was numbered in the thronge ; 
In stature slight, in mind he was full stronge. 
Of chemistry he knew so well the rules 
That all his thoughts were based on molecules. 
And it was said, to quote without subtraction, 
That all his deeds did form one grand reaction. 
Photography did claim him for her owne; 
When lucke was good in that he also shone. 
In thirteen films he sometimes got one beauty, 
To spoil the other twelve he thought it was his duty. 

A Tinker next appeared upon the scene ; 
A noted man, though somewhat lanke and leane. 
So bus)' was he gathering useless data, 
He ne'er had time to think about his weighte. 
Of all long pulls, this fellow had the longest, 
In striking "snaps" his genius was the strongest. 
Without his aid the college could not runne, 
For no one else could carry flag or fire gunne. 
So tireless was he that his work ne'er saw its endes, 
When times were dull, he simply "worked" his friendes. 

A Griffin was the last to join our rankes, 
No monster he, but one quite full of prankes, 
Who, lest hard study should his buoyant spirits dampe. 
Took care to spend full many an hour in Hampe. 

And many other men of note I sighted, 
But none I hope will grieve because they're slighted. 
Already am I to my readers debtor, 
I've either got to stop or do it better. 

A Legend of the Past. 

(As Told by an Old Aggie Partisan.) 

An' it's me that's tellin' ye since sivinty-ta I've bin th' biys' fr-rind an' 
niver th' schmallest moit av laundthry has I lost, nor th' laist bit av thir divil- 
thr5^ has I divulged. Ah, it's tame, it is, in thaise days; ah, moi, in th' airly 
eighties th' foine toimes was, begorry. Phoy, thir wor more divilment raised 
to th' minit in thim days nor is now in a yair. It was whin Lieutinint Morrill 
was Blokey thot our biys an' th' Amhirst biys had th' foine scrap they did. 
Come, sthand still, be dad, or Oi'll have hault yer coat collar, th' bether ter 
tell ye how it happened. Ye see in thim days th' Fourt' o* July come durrint 
commincement, an' it was th' custhim av th' Amhirst biys to borrie our cannon 
from Prisidint Clark, thot was, to take down on th' town cummin an' shoot 
aff before dacint folks wor awake, scatherin' thir wits an' th' winder-glass. 

An' so our biys, takin' pithy an th' marthired sowis, sez to thimsilves 
thot they'd be no busthed narves nor panes thot Fourt' ; an', wan night, afther 
th' Amhirst biys got lave ter take th' guns from th' Lieutinint, an' afore they 
took thim, th' Aggies, unbeknownst, took thim cannon sacretly an' thir car- 
ridges down to th' Day Jay Kay gardin, thot was, an' hurried thim furninst 
tin fate av airth, an' thin they chased thimsilves, totin' thim carridges 'round 
till they foinally dr-ropt thim in th' Phi Sigs' lot, an' thin they gits to bed' 
sacretly, widout a sowl knowin' phwat's up. 

An' worren't thim Amhirst biys outrageous phwin the}' sint a dillegha- 
tion up an' finds space alone phere th' cannon should be. Thot very day, it 
wor, they comes thrapsin' up in dhroves an' cumpanies, a regular army they 
wor; they come, they did, for th' expriss purpose av exthirminatin' th' Aggies. 
They come, they did, arrmed to do war, an' advancin' wid valor an' discreth- 
sion. Not fer long wor thir pace unruffld; phwin th' biys discuvirs thime, 
wid one grand whoop they rushes out wid clubs bigger nor your arrum, wid 
knobs th' size av your ta fists on th' inds. Out av ach inthry they comes, in 
squads, a-throddin' an ach ithers hails an' givin' fourt' blood curdlin' yells. 
Wid most pressin' hospithality they rushes fourt' to grate th' visiters; but 
would ye belave it, thim Amhirst spalpeens, at thot viry same momint dis-

watin' to say good-day, they ups an' 'bout faces suddint, an' makes aff towards

An' thot avenin', Misther C , 'pon me sowl, ye could thrapse all over

The Last Sophomore 


Editor's Note.— It is a well-known fact that the historic and time-honored custom of Sophomore 
JIountain-Day has been brought to an untimely end. The reasonsfor this, however, are perhaps not famil- 
iar to all, as the facts of the case have never, so far as we could learn, appeared in print. In order to clear 
up the mystery, as well as to depict a most important incident in the annals of '113, the editors of this volume 
arranged" for the following account: 

" Oh, we went to the Belchertown fair, 
But Doctor Stone, he wasn't there ; 
So Prexy got mad, which made us all sad, 
Though afterwards we did n't care." 

It was the eleventh of October, 1899, and a more inauspicious outlook for 
a Mountain-Day could not have been imagined. There was a dense fog over 
everything. You couldn't see ten feet ahead of you and it looked as though 
it would pour bucketfuls any minute. 

But a little thing like that didn't count with '02. Everyman of them was 
up bright and early with his botany-can on his back and a do-or-die expression 
on his face. At eight o'clock every man was in the barge ready for the ride. 

So far everything had been commonplace enough, but this was to be a 
day of incidents, or accidents — depending on the point of view — and the barge 
had not gone a hundred yards before the first occurred. 

Of course we could n't leave the campus for all day without a song and a 
yell, and so as we swung by the Chapel, our voices broke out spontaneously in 
a tumultuous burst of that soul-stirring and inspiring anthem, "We are, we 
are, we are, we are, the Class of Naughty-Two. " Of course our intentions in 
so doing, that is, supposing we had any intentions at all, were of the best. We 
simply wanted the college in Chapel assembled to know that we were still alive. 
But equally of course, our efforts were not properly appreciated — never are, in 
fact — and when we got back — but let us not get ahead of our story. 

Our spirits rose higher and higher as the barge sped along, till by the time 
we reached the foot of Mt. Pleasant, where Dr. Stone was to meet us, we were 

about as happy as the day was long — and it was a pretty long day for some of 
us too. We drew up at the appointed place, but Dr. Stone, oh, where was he? 
Not even the stub from his last cigar could we find to indicate that he had ever 
existed. So we sent Belden up to his house and awaited developments. 

Now it is a truism that history often turns on slight events. If William 
the Conqueror had not thought of a simple stratagem at Hastings, his army 
would have been routed, the Norman invasion checked and the history of Eng- 
land entirely changed. Similarly, if Dr. Stone had awakened at six o'clock 
that morning instead of a quarter before eight, this account would have 
assumed a far different form or else never have been written at all. For, had 
the Doctor arisen at a respectable hour, he would have met the class at the 
appointed place; and meeting them, he would have gone with them as previ- 
ously arranged and nothing out of the ordinary would have occurred. The 
impartial reader will therefore admit that if anyone was to blame for the sub- 
sequent events of the morning, it was Dr. Stone and not the Class of 1902. 
Just as the sleeping sentinel at Stony Point was responsible for the surprising 
of its garrison by Mad Anthony Wayne, so the sleeping Dr. Stone should have 
been considered the culprit that day and the class simply as the victim of cir- 

However, not to philosophize further, our scout came back to report that, 
for the reasons cited above, the Doctor would not be ready to go for some 
time, but that we were not to wait as he would follow after in a single team 
and overtake us. So, after leaving the luckless Belden as a hostage of good 
conduct, we went on our way rejoicing. 

" Nothing further happened till we were well outside of the village. Then 
we laid in a supply of fruit from a nearby orchard, and for want of a better 
pastime, started a singing (?) contest. Those in the front end of the barge, led 
by Peep Paul, struck up "When the Roll is Called up Yonder," and simultan- 
eously the rear end men under the leadership of Rannie Morse, went to bawl- 
ing out " There'll be a Hot Time in the Old Town To-night," with what turned 
out to be remarkable propriety. This caused some fun and noise for a time, 
but soon narrowed down to a match between the respective leaders, and in the 
end Paul's superior lung powers won the day. 

We have neglected to state that our destination was the Notch, a place of 
which we had heard much but knew little. In fact, it afterwards appeared that, 
singular as it may seem, not a man of us had ever been there or even knew 
exactly where it was. But the driver had his instructions and so nobody else 
bothered his head about it. Now it had pleased fate to give us for a driver 
that day one who has been variously estimated as a blockhead, a villain and a 
diamond in the rough. At all events he was certainly a man of great confi- 
dence in his own superior wisdom. Engaged to take us to the Notch, he did 
so, but — on reaching it he concluded that owing to the fog we would not care 

about stopping there. So without bothering to consult any of us, as anybody 
else would have done, he proceeded to drive straight through without so much 
as stopping or saying "boo. " We were busy just then with our singing, and 
therefore entirely oblivious to minor considerations like time, distance, and the 
landscape about us. But our surprise can be imagined when long afterward 
somebody ventured to ask the driver how much farther we had to go, to be 
told that the Notch lay five miles behind us! 

Here was a state of affairs indeed. What were we to do? We held a coun- 
cil. To return was our first thought, but we soon saw that Dr. Stone would 
have come and gone long before we could retrace half the distance. There 
was not one chance in fifty that he would wait for us to return, and to go back 
unless we could meet him was on the face of it useless. To return to College 
under the circumstances was equally out of the question ; had we done so, we 
would have been jollied about it to our dying day. Manifestly then we could 
not retreat without disgrace ; our only course was to go forward. The nearest 
town was Belchertown, a spot famed for its "specimens." By a singular coin- 
cidence, on that very day was to occur that prodigy among prodigies, the 
Belchertown Fair. Our duty, as students of an agricultural college, and as 
"seekers after truth," was obvious. Prevented from studying Botany, we 
could at least console ourselves with Agriculture. Moreover we reflected that 
such a course would be the very one which would commend itself to the Fac- 
ulty, attendance on fairs being, in their eyes, second in importance only to 
attendance at the Hash House. Even the Military Department, which would 
probably refuse to accept an excuse of sudden death unless it had been pre- 
viously notified, will sometimes wink at a man's absence if he goes to a fair. 

The paths of duty and inclination thus being one, we did not long hesi- 
tate. With a few regrets over the spoiled Mountain Day and the specimens 
we couldn't get, we piled into the barge again to make the best of our mis- 
fortunes. Still, though we thought of the future with a few apprehensive 
misgivings, we were not long cast down ; indeed, so buoyant is the spirit of 
youthful innocence that we soon felt even merrier than before. Then it was 
that we originated our well-known song: 

"Hark, I hear Doc. Stone, 

Way up on the mountain-top, tip-top, 

'Oh, where is Naughty-Two? Oh, where is Naughty-Two?' 

They have gone unto the Fair, 

Trusting in the driver's care. 
Merrily we roll along, roll along, roll along, 
Merrily we roll along, going to the Belchertown fair.'' 

Then it was that our clarion shouts of 

" Hokey, poke)', we're on deck, 
Razzle, dazzle, rubberneck, 
We ai e going, yes, we aire, 
We are going to Belchertown Fair," 


pierced the sepulchral stillness of Pansy Park ; then it was that the Class of 
1903 forgot its individual jealousies and became as one man. 

Not soon will we forget the sensation our war-cry created as we pulled up 
the last long hill and slowly, amid the tumultuous applause of the assembled 
thousands, made the circuit of old Belchertown common ; not soon will we for- 
get how, in the midst of our glor)-, we met face to face with the Horticultural 
Department, which regarded us with mute astonishment and stony distrust; 
not soon will we forget the fair itself; for all these things are deeply graven 
upon our memory. It was one of the crowning moments in our career. 

The day was spent very pleasantly in the ways that seemed best to the 
several members, and late in the afternoon we again assembled. But two of 
our number were missing — it is unnecessary to say that these were Mac. and 
Rannie Morse. With some difficulty they were at length rescued from the 
fond embraces (figuratively speaking, of course) of three blushing damsels 
apiece, and we proceeded on our homeward way, peace toward the world in 
our hearts, and with the self-satisfied feeling which comes from a hard da3''s 
work well and nobly done. 

As we drew up at North Dorm. Belden came rushing to meet us. For 
some reason Dr. Stone had not found the class at the Notch and had been 
obliged to return without us. It was feared that we were lost, and the 
authorities had nearly given up hope. 

We went to our rooms somewhat weary but very happy, but on reaching 
them, some of us had another surprise. Some of our rooms were slightly 
disarranged. We suspected the Freshmen at once, because we have yet to 
hear of a trick that is more stale and completely out-of-date than stacking 
rooms and a class with less originality than '03 never existed. And they 
couldn't do a decent job at that; it required quite a little imagination to 
guess that some of the rooms were even supposed to be stacked. In fact 
most of their time was spent in re-arranging a Junior s room, which, with 
their usual brilliancy, they had stacked by mistake. However they were 
full} r convinced that at last they had done something big, and when we 
arrived they were in the seventh heaven of ecstatic bliss. Probably if we 
had not come back till a little later, we should have found them celebrating 
in their usual method of "running three times around North College giving 
one continuous yell," dragging after them all the while, like a lot of puppy- 
dogs, a string with an old tin pail on the end. 

A few moments sufficed to restore our rooms to their usual condition, but 
as we were tired, we deferred vengeance for the night. Believing, however, 
with Professor Mills, that " whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing 
well," we took an hour off in a day or so and did the job as it should be done, 
as the accompanying photograph will show. Nineteen Hundred and Three 
has never cared to stack any rooms since. 

About this time the Faculty woke up, and the next morning- after chapel 
we had a private interview with Prex. Somehow that day it did seem as 
though everybody had a grudge against us. Dr. Stone didn't like it because 
we went through the Notch in such a hurry, and yet such is the inconsistency 
of some men, he didn't like it any better because we didn't hurry to him 
with our explanations; Prexy didn't like it because we went to Belchertown 
without a chaperon and also because we stacked the Freshmen rooms with- 
out getting- his ideas as to the best ways of doing it; Dr. Walker didn't like 
it because we made so much noise going by the Chapel that the Lord could n't 
hear his prayer; and finally, Prof. Cooley dug up an old grievance of his that 
we were in the habit of taking a few minutes from his recitations to pull rope 
up behind the Plant House, instead of going down back of the barn. So, 
taking it all in all, it looked pretty serious. We decided though that " honesty 
is the best policy, "and told a straight story from first to last, though Prexy 
only laughed at it. "Why, man, man," said he, "do you expect you are 
going to make me believe that nobody in the class knows where the Notch is? 
Why, it 's on the direct road to Mt. Holyoke College. Can't you think of a 
better excuse than that? How much did you have to pay that driver, any- 

But in the end we were acquitted on the main charge as the driver took 
all the blame on himself. We made a few apologies and explanations all 
around and '03 apologized to us and then the matter was considered closed. 
Everybody admitted finally that '02 was n't to blame in the least. All the 
same, we never got a day off to go anywhere again, and it is pretty safe bet- 
ting that there won't be another Sophomore Mountain-Day for many years at

A Fable. 


HE students at the State College were startled one night in the 
'(\ fall, at about eleven o'clock, by that most blood-curdling of all 
cries: "Fire, fire!" The cry was taken up; soon a hundred 

•rfL^B&Q students were running towards the sound. South Dormitory on 
fire! See the lurid flames shoot forth from the windows on the ground 
floor of the tower! All is confusion; all shout, gesticulate, run hither 
and thither like headless chickens. To the rescue ! Dozens rush for the 
fire escapes to save those in the rooms above, only to be met by a shower 
of picture frames, glass and crockeryware, lamps, in fact, everything break- 
able, which the owners are frantically striving to save from the flames. 
Other officious persons carefully and laboriously drag down the winding 
stairs, couches, clothing, bed clothes and mattresses. Some ring the bells 
loudly and lustily. So the good people of Amherst judge by the shouts 
and the noise and the flames that the "Aggies" are celebrating another 
glorious victory. Now the clever heads knock together, — the fire depart- 
ment, the very thing! Off they rush to the Drill Hall. Locked! The 
key! the key! All rush back to the key-box, all smash it in, all strive to carry 
the key to the room where the hose-cart is kept, all try to fit it into the key- 
hole. At last the doors swing open and they cavort forth with the hose-cart 
trailing majestically behind. At this very moment the Amherst fire company 
swings round the Chapel and bursts upon the arena amid the shouts of the 
good citizens. Now there is a great predicament : both companies want to 
use the same fire-plug, and both try to fit their hose to it, and as two bodies 
cannot occupy the same space, at the same time, trouble arises. Add to the 
confusion the ever-increasing fire, which has warped the walls of the tower 
so that stray bricks now and then drop upon the ground or upon some unfor- 
tunate's head. One of these bricks, it so happened, lit upon the head of the 
chief upholder of the cause of the Town hose versus the "Aggie" hose, and 
he, swearing vengeance upon the man who smote him, swung the end of his 
hose in generous circles around his head. Now, as several of the necks of the 
doughty upholders of the home cause were in the same plane as that caused 
by the rotating hose, the result of this maiKKUvreing was not pleasing. As 

the noise was so great they could not express their displeasure verbally, 
remembering- that "actions speak louder than words," they grabbed brick- 
bats, which by this time were plentiful, and gave a practical illustration of 
college baseball training- by making most successful targets of the Amherst - 
ites. The melee became general, the carnage dreadful. The author, being 
not interested in this department, was trying aimlessly to seek more active 
diversion by getting out of the crowd, when a monstrous missile, not nearly 
spent, smote him a sore blow on the back of the head and he bit the dust for 
many hours. 

Next morning, at ten o'clock, the unfortunate author slowly awoke and 
felt his head ; it was still very heavy, but he noticed no lumps or other signs 
of concussion. Slowly turning over in the bed he muttered, "Will these 
celebrations never cease?" 

[The following epitaph was found in a Freshman's waste-basket. As we 
do not know what prompted him to write it we will not venture any expla- 

Erected to the Memory of Babb. 

A miserable, conceited, know-it-all man 

Who his education at Bates began. 

While here, he was a third-rate French instructor 

And a first-class parasitic deductor 
Of this institution's reputation. 
He was student-teacher all in one 
And we thank the Lord that his work is done. 

There can be found from Belchertown, 
Among the faculty classified, 

A man who slings 

Bad jokes and things. 
Ye gods ! from such we all fain would hide. 

Fired from his school, he left his stool 
And here he poses as instructor. 

In German rot 

And French untaught 
He's the underclassmen's conductor. 

With hair awry he oft does hie 
To the studies he has elected. 

With horse and team, 

Unkept he's seen, — 
What demerits, were they inspected !

Class History. 

(While engaged in " renovating " a North College room last summer Prof. Canavan cam 
across what proved to be a valuable document. It consisted of a number of notes apparently 
taken by some short-course man the winter before with a view of expanding them into a his- 
tory for our Index. Inasmuch as Mr. Canavan was unable to think of any use that he could 
put them to he placed them in the hands of our board and it was thought best to publish them, 
brief and fragmentary as they are.) 

January 3, 1900. This day the short-course men strike Aggie and Aggie 
is struck dumb with wonder. Our class is far better than last year's. For 
one thing it is smaller, and the number of freaks is proportionately less. 

January 4. We begin work. Prof. Brooks delivered his first lecture. 
Two men were reported sick and everyone else sleepy. 

January 5. We are gaining ground. The aristocracy of the College 
joins us, Brown, '00, being enrolled as an honorary member. They say that 
Brown used to run the Hash House but resigned to accept the more lucrative 
position of running the College. He is president of the Senate, whatever that 
might be. 

January 6. Parsons objects to using a starter for the cream. He is a 
Prohibitionist and he is afraid it will produce some fermented drink. 

January 10. We grieve to learn that Brown is dissatisfied and is looking 
for more worlds to conquer. He decides that he is fitted for a military rather 
than an agricultural life. Takes counsel with Landers and recommends mili- 
tary drill to Prexy. 

January 11. Prexy announces that drill will soon be forthcoming. 
Brown leaves our ranks forever and we tender congratulations. 

January 12. A co-ed arrives for our department. The college students 
are very jealous. Hemenway and Root begin the course. 

January 15. This day the jealousy of the students reached its maximum. 
A horde of merciless Freshmen take revenge on "Zeke," one of our best- 
known men, and fill his shoes with red ink, then leave him to his fate. 

January 16. " Zeke " takes his wrongs and his shoes to Prexy. Prexy 
reprimands the Freshmen for using red ink. "Always use Diamond Dyes," 
he tells them. 

January -20. We plan to be revenged on the Fresh — 

The page ends here and the remaining sheets are missing. Despite all 
our efforts neither they nor their writer could be found. We must believe 

" Cut is the branch that might have grown full straight, 
And burned is Apollo's laurel bough." 

Class Song. 

Tune — Romeo and Juliet. 

I am the hero of this little tale, 

I'm a short-course man, I'm a short-course man; 
I am a wonderful, wonderful male, 

I'm a short-course man, a short-course man. 
I am the flower of Aggie's aggregation, 
Others there are, but no such combination, 
No such a freak in this wide Yankee nation, 

I'm a short-course man, a short-course man. 

I have the best crop of whiskers at Aggie, 

A wondrous sight, a wondrous sight ; 
Even Svengali's are not half so shaggy, 

A wondrous sight, a wondrous sight. 
Red as the flag of the dread epidemics, 
Long as the longest of Brooks's polemics, 
One sight enough to produce the hysterics, 

A wondrous sight, a wondrous sight. 

Some say that great men are not appreciated, 

It must be true, it must be true; 
That is the reason I'm not better rated, 

It must be true, it must be true. 
That's why the Freshmen do always abuse me, 
That's why the Sophomores take pains to confuse me, 
That's why the Faculty wish they could lose me, 

It must be true, yes, very true. 

Soon will my trials at Aggie be ended, 

Then what a rest, then what a rest! 
When to my fireside my way I have wended, 

Then what a rest, yes, what a rest ! 
Ruin will fall on this college ungrateful, 
Direst misfortunes on all who've been hateful, 
Mind that you heed my last warnings so fateful, 

Then what a rest ! Oh, what a rest ! 

Baa, baa, Tinker! 

Have you any pull ? 
" Once I had, sir, 

And it was wonderful; 
A pull with the faculty, 

A pull with the boys. 
But alas! I lost it all, sir, 

By making too much noise.

Scene I. 

Place. The Chemical Lecture Room of the Massachusetts Agricultural College. 

Time. ii. 15 a. m. Lecture by Prof . Kidd. 

(Enter the class singing in loud chorus. ) 

"Au der lieber Tabby-Cat, Tabby-Cat, Tabby-Cat, 

Au der lieber Tabby-Cat, alle ist a scheme. 

Pop-a-scheme, Kidd-a-scheme, Tabby-a-scheme, Smith-a-scheme. 
Au der lieber Tabby-Cat, always a scheme." 
Prof. Kidd raps on desk with large mineral specimen to obtain order. Uproar con- 
tinues. Claflin comes in on a run. Noise gradually ceases. 


Claflin. Am I here, Professor? 

Prof. Kidd. I believe I have a mark against your name. 

Claflin. Great Scott! If my name only began with S. I'd be here. 

Belden. We have ten minutes to get here from English. (Chorus from 
class: That's right!!) 

Prof. Kidd. Well, I have some of you marked absent. Now if you will 
give attention, we will take up the lecture. To-day we will take up sodium, 
potassium, lithium and ammonium. Cooley, you may leave the room. It is 
considered" impolite to eat during a lecture. These metals belong to the alkali 
metals; they all decompose water at ordinary temperature — Morse, will you 
please stop your talking? 

Morse. Why, conclum it! Christmas rile! I wasn't saying anything, 

Prof. Kidd. Morse, you may leave the room. 

Morse. Yes, sir. (Picks up his coat leisurely, sits down to put on his 
rubbers. ) 

Prof. Kidd. I said you may leave the room ! 

Morse. Yes, sir, I'm going. 

Prof. Kidd. Leave the room immediately ! ! 

Morse. AVhere's my hat? I want my hat; have you got it, Kinney? (Exit 

Prof. Kidd. Now if we will go on with the lecture ; — they are all acted 
upon by the moisture of the air, and hence they must be kept under water. 
Each one, — now I should hate to have to send Cole and Hodgkiss out of the 
room to-day. If I did they would come to me after the class and say they 
weren't doing anything. 

Hodgkiss. I was just looking in my notebook. 

Prof. Kidd. Well, you may leave the room. 

Hodgkiss. Oh, that'll be all right. 

Cole. Good-bye, Hodgkiss. 

Prof. Kidd. You may go too, Cole. Each one forms but one series of 
salts, many of which are extremely stable and useful. We will take up sodium 
first. (Continues lecture.) There is an interesting story about the way in 
which glass was discovered. It is said that a party of Phoenicians, while camp- 
ing on the shores of the Mediterranean, built a fire upon which to cook their 
food. When it was cool they found that the sand had fused together, making 
a translucent mass, resembling glass. 

Paul. Professor! What were they cooking on that fire — fish? 

Prof. Kidd. (Continues lecture for five consecutive minutes. Carpenter 
goes to sleep.) Carpenter, if you would go to bed earlier you could pay better 
attention at this hour in the morning. 

Carpenter. Please tell me how much earlier you would want me to go to 

Prof. Kidd. An hour earlier would do. 

Carpenter. Well, 1 wouldn't have any supper then. I went to bed at 
seven o'clock last night, and if I should go to bed an hour earlier, I wouldn't 
have anything to eat. 

Prof. Kidd. I don't want to hear anything more from you, Carpenter. 

(Prof. Kidd steps to the board to write; chalk fails to make a mark.) 

Saunders. Let's buy him some chalk ! 

Prof. Kidd (writes " Na CI " on the board). What is that, Lewis? 

Lewis. That's sodium chloride. 

Prof. Kidd. No, it's chalk. 

Claflin. Gee, I'm hungry. 

Prof. Kidd. Well, Claflin, go and get your dinner if you are hungry. 

Claflin (gathers up his books). I don't know what that's got to do with 
the present price of eggs. (Exits, slamming the door.) 

Prof. Kidd. Tell Claflin he needn't come in until he sees me. (Continues 
the lecture.) To-morrow we will have an oral quiz. 

Blake. What will it be on? 

Prof. Kidd. Anvthing we have had this term. (Groans from all parts of 
the room. Exeunt class.) 

Scene II. 

Place, same as Scene 1. Time, 10.15 a m. the next day. 

(Class comes in rather noisily.) 

Prof. Kidd. To-day we will have an oral quiz, and I will ask you each a 
question. Smith, what is a mattrass? 

Smith (rises, looks blankly at Prof. Kidd). 

Prof. Kidd. What are the essentials of a mattrass? 

Smith. It should be square. 

Prof. Kidd (smiles). Anything else? 

Smith. It must be soft. (Sits down.) 

Cook. A goose-egg for you, Smithy. 

Prof. Kidd. No, a mattrass is a glass tube sealed at one end. Paul, what 
is zinc used for? 

Paul. It is used for gold bricks, under the stoves in North College, for 
" sinkers " at the Hash House, and so forth. 

Prof. Kidd. Anything else? . That will do. (Belden and Cook 

are not attending to the quiz, but seem to be gazing at the case behind them.) 
Belden, Cook, we are stud}-ing inorganic chemistry, not organic. 

Belden. I was looking at the liquors. 

Prof. Kidd. I hope it is only curiosity. Kinney, what is iron used for? 

Kinney. It is used for gas pipes. 

Morse (aside). I gas so. 

Prof. Kidd. Morse, that's no joke. You don't know what a joke is. The 
same way yesterday, someone tried to get off a joke about buying some chalk. 
Now there were three things : the blackboard, the chalk, and the man ; now, why 
didn't he say buy a new man, or a new blackboard? Why did he say buy chalk? 

Morse. I don't think we had a man; it was a " Kidd." 

Prof. Kidd. You may leave the room, Morse. Kinney, what else is iron 
used for? (Exit Morse.) 

Kinney. I don't know, but sometimes people take it for their blood. 

Prof. Kidd. You must have been taking some, for you are rather rusty. 

Chase and others. Joke! one, two, three. (Class joins in.) Ha, ha, ha! 

Prof. Kidd. Chase, you may leave the room. 

Dwyer. Excuse yourself. (Exit Chase.) 

Prof. Kidd. Was that you, Dwyer? Well, we can get along without you. 
(Exit Dwyer.) 

Prof. Kidd. Speaking of jokes, I had a friend who drew a picture of a 
hen. He put it in the waste-basket, it laid there. 

McCobb. Wouldn't that jar you? 

Prof. Kidd. You may leave the room, McCobb. (Steps to the board and 
writes.) Bodfish, what is this on the board? 

Bod fish. Chalk. 

Prof. Kidd. West, what is this? 

West. It is para-dimethylaniline azo-benzone sulphonic acid. 

Prof. Kidd. Correct. That will do. (Gates' hat takes a swim in the 
tank on the Prof. 's table.) Hall, did you throw that in? 

Hall. No, sir, my hand did. 

Prof. Kidd. Well, you may leave the room; this is no primary school. 
(Exit Hall.) 

Gates. We've got a Kidd though. 

Prof. Kidd. You are not needed, Gates. (Exit Gates.) We shall have 
the cream of the class left by and by. 

Claflin. I call that an insult. 

Prof. Kidd. Claflin, you don't know how to behave. 

Claflin. That's adding insult to injury. 

Prof. Kidd. You haven't the qualifications of a gentleman at all. There goes another insult. 

(Prof. Kidd bites his lips and is completely phased.) 

(Chorus from the tennis court outside. ) 

They're twenty-four Sophomores taking Chemistry, 
But one poor Sophomore gets stuck in Chemistry, 
So twenty-three Sophs are taking Chemistry, 
And one poor Sophomore gets stuck in Chemistry, 
Makes twenty-two Sophomores taking Chemistry, 
And one poor Soph 

Prof. Kidd. Those fellows are no better singers than they are chemists. 

(Chorus from outside.) Come on out and play tennis, Claf. 

Claflin. Golly, but I'd like to. 

Prof. Kidd. Well, I guess you'd better. (Exit Claflin.) 

Cook. One more gone, play for the batter! 

Prof. Kidd. It strikes me for the third time that you're talking too much, 
Cook, and as three strikes are out, I think you'd better go out. (Exit Cook.) 

Prof. Kidd. Well, Church, what is zinc sulphide used for? 

Church: Well, I think you can get zinc and sulphur out of it. 

Prof. Kidd. Yes, of course ; but what is the top of this room painted 

Church (after extensive survey). Not much of anything very lately, I 

Prof. Kidd. Well, what color is zinc sulphide? 

Church. Black. 

Prof. Kidd. Black? Why, just look at the ceiling. 

Church. I did. That's what made me think it was black. 

Prof. Kidd. That will do. 

Church. Please, Professor, isn't it black? 

Prof. Kidd. Which? 

Church. Why, the ceiling. 

Prof. Kidd. No, it's white. 

Hodgkiss. I'm something of a liar myself, but 

Prof. Kidd. You see, Church, you have to use your imagination a little. 

Carpenter. Do you think we ought to use our imaginations in an exact 
science like chemistry, Professor? 

Prof Kidd. Why, I suppose so. 

Belden. Well, I don't. I tried it in the last exam, and you gave me a 
zero for it. 

Prof. Kidd. Blake, what is the water of crystallization? 

Blake. It's the water that forms when you let crystals stand; — no, I 
mean the crystals that form when you let water stand ; — no, I mean that — I 
don't know just what I do mean. I know what it is, but I can't explain it. 

Prof Kidd. That is evident. Well, what do you think of it, Knight? 

Knight. I should give it as my opinion, that as has been pointed out 
before, the conclusions of my immediate predecessor were, if I may express 
myself somewhat plainly, based on slightly erroneous premises and therefore 
to be rejected as fallacious in nature. As to the subject in hand, I would state 
that other things being equal, the water of crystallization is that allotropic and 
unusual form of water which is to be found, in varying quantities to be sure, 
but none the less with a reasonable degree of certainty in that peculiar mani- 

festation of chemical energy to which has been given the appellation of crystal- 

Prof. Kidd. Yes. What are you looking for, Dellea? 

Dellea. A dictionary. 

Prof. Kidd. Hodgkiss, what is a super-phosphate? 

Hodgkiss. I guess it must be the kind the "super" uses. 

Prof. Kidd. That will do. Dacy, what is a super-phosphate? 

Dacy. A super-phosphate is a mixture of calcium sulphate, mono-calcic 
phosphate, di-calcic phosphate, and tri-calcic phosphate. 

Prof. Kidd. We will have to stop here. (Calls the roll.) 

[During the latter part of the quiz Paul has been lying on the floor in the 
back of the room with his head out of the window, and, assisted by the 
"Howard Five" below, has drawn up into the room a motley collection of 
tomato cans, coal hods, pea cans, bricks, etc. He is diverted from his inter- 
esting pastime by hearing his name called and answers, Here!] 

Prof. Kidd. I have you marked absent, Paul. 

Paul. Why, I've been here all the hour. 

Prof. Kidd. I know the best part of you has been. Class is dismissed. 

A Petition. 

By Bowler, after election. 

I want some money 
And I want it bad ; 

So with words of honey 
I'll approach my dad. 

Successful season 
As ever was had 

And this the reason, 
It'll make daddy glad. 

The New Band. 

What are those various noises 

Coming from the drill hall room? 
They are strange and rancorous — awful ! 

And the}' fill my heart with gloom 
As I walk along the campus, 

Or, upon my window seat 
Try to study, try to figure, 

Try my problems hard to meet. 

There's a rip — a roar — a rattle, 

A toot — a snarl — a bang; 
A wail both long and woeful, 

A scraping and a whang. 
And then a welcome silence, 

All too short it proves to be, 
Then again the air is fractured. 

Are the furies in high glee? 

Furies! Nonsense, my poor student, 

Knowest not what we have here? 
'T is a band — you'd scarce believe it, 

Yes, a band which does not fear. 
It 's practicing to play well 

In a far and distant day ; 
Meantime you must have patience 

Or else must run away. 

Her Answer. 

(Dedicated, with sympathies, to Claf. ) 

You murmur that you love her, 
And that you think her sweet, 

And that you d give the world for her, 
And grovel at her feet. 

She gazes down upon you, 
She shows her teeth of pearl, 

And then her smiling answer comes — 
"Some other little girl."

With Our Compliments. 

To Raymoth's Ready Relief. 

I have a tongue that is hung in the middle, 

'Tis never still. 
It runs more swiftly than bow o'er the fiddle, 

'Tis never still. 
Whate'er the subject, my knowledge's unbounded, 
Sometimes it's true, and more times it's unfounded, 
I 'm of all nuisances the most confounded, 

I 'm never still. 

To the M. A. C. Band. 

Where's the music that is half so grand 
As the wailings of the Aggie band? 
Must we listen to the tune (?) they play? 
I can hear them from afar, 
Now a crashing, now a jar, 
And I fear they're coming nearer, 
For they practice night and ,day. 
Oh, listen to the band, 
How terribly they play; 
" There's no poorer in the land," 
Hear everybody say. 
Oh, listen to the band, 
Will it never, never cease? 
No, a shout of "Here they come," 
And a banging of the drum, 
Shows it's useless to expect a minute's peace. 
How the students and the poor Profs, run, 
They are in a hurry, every one. 
Crowds are flocking for some distant land, 
And they tear along the street 
Muttering maledictions sweet, 
For there's fearful, awful discord in the music of our band.

The "Aggie Man." 

As some people think he is. 

Especially as various learned (?) 
Editors of various daily papers 
think he is. 

B' gosh ! I go to Aggie school 

Up there in Amherst town; 
I've got my overalls on, ye see, 

An' my hands is orful brown 
With th' loam I've jest been plowin' straight ; 

With th' chores I've hed to do; 
An' my hair, b' gosh ! 't is rumpled up, 

An' my collar ' s all askew. 
I rise when th' sun is gettin' up; 

Milk a score or more of cows, 
Feed th' hosses, pigs, th' hens an' chicks, 

Pick th' berries — trim th' boughs. 
Then I go to do some readin' work, 

An' spell a little, too, 
An' some addin' an' subtractin' are 

Th' other things I do ! 

Ye Babbling Brooks. 

Away from the busy haunts of men, 

I wander over a rough, stony plain; 
I wend my way through grassy glen 

Where great, big bowlders long have lain. 
I nearly get lost in long, thick grass, 

But am always able to emerge again. 
I babble much with a certain class, 
Yet I guess I'll have to let them pass, 

Then all connection with them sever ; 
For classes may come and classes may go, 

But I go on forever. 

A Hopeless Case. 

ERCY BROOKS, '01, went to Captain Anderson the other day 
with a sad story. He said in part: " Captain, I'm much interested 
in golf. Think I must have been cut out for a golfer; never 
could imagine before what I was cut out for. Why, I believe 
that with lots of luck I could beat Prof. Babson, and you know what that 
would be. But you see the trouble is, I'm so busy I don't have time enough 
to practice. I study a good deal you know and I don't have much spare time. 
Now what I was thinking was that you might be willing to retire me from 
drill. I know all about drill now, and I could come around and help you out 
every now and then if you got short of breath. I think," etc., etc. 

Captain Anderson considered the matter. 

"I suppose you don't claim any physical disability, do you?" he asked 

"Why, no," said Brooks ; " I guess I'm all right, but I thought that maybe 
there was some other way you could work it so that — " 

" Well, yes," assented the Captain, "there are three other ways a student 
of this college can get out of drill." 

Brooks's hopes began to rise. 

'•I guess there's a chance for me then," he thought. "What are the 
ways?" he asked. 

"The first way is by leaving the college. How does that strike you?" 

"No; I'm afraid I ought to stay. The fellows would miss me so. 
What's the second way?" 

" The second way is by death. How's that?" 

"Oh, give me the third; that must fit my case." 

"Well, the third way, Mr. Brooks, is by special act of Congress." 

Percy is still drilling; Prof. Babson still holds the golf championship; 
cruel is fate. 

The Lament of the M. A. C. Cannon. 

Alas, unhappy is our lot, 

My brother gun's and mine ! 
Are we the victims of a plot, 

The toys of peaceful times? 

Here in this bare, deserted room 

Where we stand side by side 
Amidst the silence and the gloom 

Must we fore'er abide? 

Why thus are we denied the fate 

Of happier guns than we? 
How can we here our thoughts elate? 

How can we bark with glee? 

Where now the battle's madd'ning swirl? 

Where now the foeman's shout? 
Alas! no message can we hurl, 

No charges can we rout! 

We bark — but in our bark no bite ; 

We spout but smoke and flame. 
Alas! Alas! it is not right; 

Our life is useless — tame! 

Oh, send us where the battle sound 

Is heard throughout the land; 
Oh, send us where from distant mound 

We '11 scatter wide the sand. 

Straight from our deep and glist'ning throat 

We'd hurl the deadly steel, 
While over all the plains remote 

The foe our might would feel !

To our mind the most important college sport next to football is track 
athletics. And it seems a shame that the students and alumni failed to sup- 
port our track team last spring, but allowed it to become a failure simply 
because the necessary funds were lacking. Our material was better than the 
spring before when we had our meet with Williston ; all the old point winners 
were here save two; there was promising material in the Freshman class, and, 
most important of all, the veteran members of the team had gained much by 
experience and training. Quite a little enthusiasm was aroused during the 
winter of last year; an eighteen-lap-to-the-mile track was put into the Drill 
Hall, inter-class sports were arranged, and many trained systematically. 
About this time, also, our manager wrote to Worcester Tech. to arrange a 
dual meet between the colleges, and he said that our expenses would have to 
be guaranteed. In reply the Worcester Tech. track team manager said that 
the arrangements were satisfactory. Later our manager received a letter 
asking for our list of entries ; this was sent. Not until fully six weeks after- 
wards came another letter in which was asked what we intended to do about 
the guarantee, and that we would have to pay half the expenses. As the 
baseball team needed all the money it was fair to ask of the students, as there 
were some old debts to be paid, and as our alumni are not to be relied upon 
to help our teams to be a credit to their Alma Mater, we had to give up the 
meet. The business manager tried to arrange a dual meet with some other 
college, but his negotiations were in vain as it was then too late in the season. 

Not having an athletic meet last spring was especially disappointing as 
we were trying to enter the New England Athletic Association, and the only 
reason why we had not been admitted before was, not that our previous 
records were unsatisfactory, but that track athletics was a new branch of 
sport with us, and it was not known whether we would or would not turn out 
teams qualified to compete in their sports in subsequent years. And to think 
that the very next year — we were virtually on probation — we practically 

accomplished nothing in this line is very discouraging to all interested in 
track and field events. We in reality had an organized team ; Wilson was 
again captain, Gamwell was business manager. A practice meet was arranged 
with Amherst. We did not expect our team to do well and our expectations 
were fulfilled; athletes cannot do their best without training, and none of the 
members of the track team remained in training after the dual meet with 
Worcester Tech. was cancelled. Only about twenty-five points were won 
by our team, Landers, Cook, Claflin, Chickering, Graves, Stanley, and Hig- 
gins being the point winners. 

So all our cherished dreams of a track team that was destined to win 
laurels for " Old Aggie " vanished like a perishable soap-bubble. 

The Senate. 

A college is a private community, and the welfare and the behavior of its 
students have to be looked after as in any public community. Now this duty 
must fall upon the Faculty unless especial provision is made. But the Faculty 
have other matters to occupy their minds than the general behavior of stu- 
dents outside the class-room ; and often there is occasion for admonition 
which the Faculty do not want to be bothered with as it may be beneath their 
notice or dignity. In a case where evidence is required it is hard for the 
Faculty to procure it from the students, as they consider it unmanly and dis- 
honorable to disclose anything that may implicate a fellow student. In right 
of their office the Faculty are the students' superiors, and therefore are not 
cpialified to judge them in all respects, since they are not the students' peers, 
— and for centuries it has been considered the right of man to be judged by 
his peers. Certain moral aspects of college life the Faculty feel responsible 
for, yet to regulate them they feel is a rather delicate task. The students 
themselves realize that a body of their own companions, elected by them- 
selves, should have the power to judge such misdemeanors as have no con- 
nection with rank in studies but deal rather with morality. So we have 
organized a Senate, whose members are elected from the upper classes, and, 
with the consent of the Faculty, have endowed it with power to enforce col- 
lege traditions and such regulations as it may see fit to draw up. As this 
organization is comparatively new here, grand and sweeping reforms are not 
attempted ; few rules are there, but these few the Senate intends to enforce, 
so that its dignity may be upheld and all will respect, obey, and cherish it as 
an organization beneficial to college life. Last year the Senate attempted too 
much, or, more correctly speaking, too much along a certain line ; the private 
life of the student was meddled with, antagonism arose, the Senate was held 

in contempt, and its purpose virtually defeated. This year's Senate does not 
intend to bite off more than it can chew ; it has profited by experience ; only 
college traditions and rules, and decorous behavior on the campus and in and 
about the college buildings are to be enforced. In many colleges these stu- 
dent organizations exert great influence and their verdicts are respected alike 
b3' students and Faculty. To accomplish this our Senate must have the stu- 
dents' respect and cooperation; whatever the Senate decides should be abided 
by and backed up. If we assume the proper attitude towards the Senate — 
and there is no reason why we should not — that body will without doubt 
become an important factor in promoting our common weal. 

Our College Catalogue. 

A school boy, when thinking of entering college and undecided which is 
preferable, if there is no alumnus of or person especially interested in a cer- 
tain college to influence him, will be swayed greatly by the merits of the dif- 
ferent college catalogues. Suppose he hears that M. A. C. is a small college 
where individual attention can be received, where a good scientific education 
is obtainable, where good fellowship and enjoyable college life exist; that it 
is very pleasantly situated on a slight elevation in the heart of the Connecti- 
cut Valley, and is surrounded by beautiful mountain and valley views, and, 
thinking all this preferable to crowded university life in a metropolis, he 
writes for our catalogue. A book of goodly size confronts him, — "assuredly 
they appreciate the importance of even a small college having a good cata- 
logue," thinks he. The prospective student opens the book at about the 
middle. "What's this? 'The Great Importance of Not Overfeeding Pigs.'" 
And he turns toward the front. "Hum. ' Why Our Western Beef Cattle are 
not Good Dairy Cows.' How interesting." Turning more pages: "Ah, 
here's some table : ' Application per Acre. ' Is that of more importance in that 
college than application of the mind? Let's read further : ' The importance of 
this fact cannot be too much dwelt upon, and, as we previously stated, other 
things being equal ....'" Finally, to his surprise, he does find the curri- 
culum. After looking over the course of studies and entrance examinations 
he reviews the book: "One-quarter devoted to students, three-quarters to 
bugs, cows, pigs, et cetera; there's too much favoritism to suit me." And 
forthwith he seeks another college. 

It does seem rather strange that we are unable to send our friends, or 
those whom we wish to come here, a publication of the requirements, the 
advantages, and the courses of study offered without also informing them of 
the welfare of every domestic animal on the farm from a horse to a hen. 

Some may protest that this is an agricultural college ; true, as is sufficiently 
demonstrated in the catalogue proper. Let the college issue a catalogue that 
is not intended for the farmer, but for the student ; let it represent not the 
farm, but the college; let it show what this college really is. 

The Military Department. 

Three wars, two of which are now being waged, naturally turn the atten- 
tion of United States citizens to war, and to all that pertains to war ; to, the 
army and the navy, also to the militia, and the military and naval academies. 
But few seem to consider the military departments of our state colleges. 
What attitude do people assume towards drill in state institutions? Is it 
merely an uninteresting, tedious form, gone through with three times a week 
simply that these colleges may be eligible to pecuniary aid from the govern- 
ment, or do they think that, taking for granted interest and work are shown 
in mastering the military science, the students of these military colleges are 
no more likely to enlist than those of non-military institutions and that if 
they do their theoretical training is of little value when confronted by the 
stern reality of war? 

Whether or not interest and a desire to do well is manifested depends 
fully as much upon the students as upon the military instructors. From 
what point of view do the students regard drill and the stud}- of military tac- 
tics? If simply as an irksome necessity then the most competent and enthu- 
siastic instructor would fail to instill into his cadets a real desire to become 
proficient, and, on the other hand, if the head of this department considers 
the men he has thrust upon his hands as lacking in vim and the requisites of 
soldiers, the results could hardly be flattering to any or all concerned. 

We need onty concern ourselves with the former supposition, as the 
experience of our college is that the military instructors have been competent 
and we all know that our present commandant shows a highly laudable inter- 
est in the department. Some students, perhaps we should say a few, are 
really interested in the military department; it may be that the majority like 
drill well enough but begrudge the time; there are some who besides 
begrudging the time do not like to drill yet suffer it as something that can- 
not be avoided; and a few dislike it to such an extent that it makes them 
rather restive. 

Although some do not like to drill, all, we are sure, will have to admit 
that it is a good thing for them; it takes time, it is true, time we would like 
to spend otherwise, but it is not time thrown away by any means. Besides 

the mental exercise obtained from drill there is decided physical culture 
derived that makes itself manifest in the general carriage of the cadet, and 
this is of especial advantage in an institution where no gymnastic work is 
prescribed. This phase of the question was appreciated when for two years, 
owing to the "late war," we had no drill; there was a general disregard to 
trimness of person and carriage and a lack of respect for upper-class men and 
professors on the part of the under-class men who had never drilled. Respect 
for superiors, that which troubles the youth of this country little and the lack 
of which is criticised by foreigners, is fostered greatly by military discipline. 
Drill in our college is a necessity, it is beneficial, and, whether we prefer 
to drill or not, we should take an interest in becoming proficient and thereby 
make this department a credit to the college ; for the old adage still holds 
true: "What is worth doing at all, is worth doing well." 

Junior Electives. 

A century ago a few wheelwrights would construct a whole wagon ; to-day 
many times as man}? hands are employed before the wagon is completed, each 
having a special part to perform, and by engaging only in this one branch, great 
rapidity and skill are acquired. This tendency towards specialization is con- 
stantly growing as new fields of knowledge, science, and experience are being 
cleared for cultivation ; fields so vast that only in this way can the}? be manip- 
ulated. We see this in business, in the professions, in the sciences. Whereas 
a century ago few branches of research were open to the student, at college 
now the courses of study are as numerous as the weeks of the year. A life- 
time would be insufficient for the study of all the colleges have to offer ; and 
were Francis Bacon of this period instead of the Elizabethan, would we con- 
sider him sane if he said, "I have taken all knowledge to be my province"? 

Not only is the tendency towards specialization along numerous lines of 
research felt in the colleges in general, but in our college in particular ; the 
Faculty realize it, the students feel it, and the curriculum shows it. The 
Faculty and the students may hold the same views, but their conclusions vary. 
The students say, "We need optional courses of study, and we claim them"; 
the Faculty reply, "When you are sufficiently advanced you shall have them. " 
And the Faculty, concurring with Pope — "be not the first by whom the new 
is tried, nor yet the last to lay the old aside" — are undecided. That may be 
the Faculty's reasoning; we are incompetent to judge ; their reasoning per- 
chance is far beyond us — so inuch so as to seem too far removed to be of any 
practical benefit to us. 

We ask for electives, not only in the Senior but also in the Junior year. 

We say one year is not enough in which to perfect ourselves in the course we 
elect and that therefore we are graduated from a scientific institution with an 
incomplete education in the course for which presumably we entered college. 
Having prescribed studies often compels us to take those in which we have 
no interest or that are distasteful ; so by slurring over the work little good is 
derived and much time wasted. And the professors also perhaps lose what 
enthusiasm they may have had in their subjects after lecturing time and again 
to inattentive and dozing students. 

The Faculty on the other hand may argue : A broad and general educa- 
tion is the essential of an educated man. As Lord Bacon says, a remedy 
should be applied to every defect of the mind just as truly as to every defect 
of the body; you should not alone pursue studies that come easy and are 
enjoyed, you should also train your mind to comprehend those that are mas- 
tered with difficulty. You especially should consider this, as not one out of 
ten of you knows with certainty what position you will hereafter hold, what 
walk of life you will follow, what obstacles you will meet. A many-sidedness 
of training and knowledge should be possessed to make you competent to 
meet successfully every exigency. An education along a single line is narrow. 
You will have to admit that the education obtained here is general, for that 
is your complaint. Another point, are you competent to choose what studies 
are best for you to pursue? Have }^ou previously obtained a sufficiently broad 
and advanced education to weigh intelligently the respective advantages and 
disadvantages of the various subjects that would be offered you to choose 
from if you have electives? 

We will grant that a general education is good, but by having just that 
we class ourselves with preparatory schools ; for to complete our edtication in 
any branch we have to take a course at another college, and this has been 
done by many of our most noted alumni. Is it fair to the student with a good 
preparatory education, or is it wise, to countenance incomplete school educa- 
tion by making the standard of the Freshman class so low that a boy can 
enter from his first year in the high school? We consider that to enter col- 
lege a preparatory education is presupposed. If the Faculty think fit to 
spend time in giving the students a high school education before entering 
upon true college work, why, no wonder they think us unprepared for special 
courses and unfit to elect our studies. 

We feel that electives are our right and privilege, and think that, even if 
the Faculty do have the thoughts here considered, it is absurd to suppose that 
upper-classmen of any college are so unsophisticated that they are incapable 
of selecting the courses of study they wish to pursue. We ask these mem- 
bers of the Faculty: What is the purpose of a scientific college? 

The Foot-Ball Season. 

The latest event to occur naturally has prominence in our thoughts, yet 
in reviewing anything like a foot-ball season we should not let remoteness or 
nearness of time unduly influence the importance of an event; and so it is in 
our case, we should not let our defeat by Amherst cause us to slight our vic- 
tory over Vermont University — the team that held Dartmouth at a stand-still. 
Amherst deserved to win: their team was in its best form, while ours was not 
in such a state of perfect mechanism, — and they played a winning game. Con- 
sidering the size of our College, our meagerness of means, and our only having 
a coach for two weeks, the only game during the entire season which is a blot 
upon our foot-ball escutcheon is that with Trinity. 

Our team played a good and plucky game against Wesleyan's strong 
eleven, and made Holy Cross work harder than ever before to defeat us, while 
we gave Williams a bad scare. As to the five games we won, why, the scores 
render it unnecessary to make further comment. 

This season the scrub was better than ever before and so well organized 
was it that outside games were arranged and played. Our compliments and 
hearty thanks to the scrub. 

The Varsitjr was under better management this year than last, its schedule 
was harder, and the team was better. 

The Index congratulates the foot-ball team upon the successful season of 
nineteen hundred, and feels proud of every member. 

The Managers of Our Athletic Teams. 

The importance of having conscientious, capable managers for the athletic 
teams has been felt often in times past at M. A. C. Some were good and some 
better; some were bad and well, epithets that comprehend all are unneces- 
sary. Honesty does not have to be considered, as it is to be taken for granted 
that any man whom the students elect is honest ; and so far as we know this 
is true. There are the drones who, having been elected to a position of trust 
and responsibility, allow the affairs entrusted to them to drift along haphazard; 
to our mind comes a fair illustration of this : a certain manager of a baseball 
team — a man of unquestioned ability — allowed the season to open without 
securing a single game, and when this was known, the schedules of the other 
college teams being complete, the man who took his position was unable to 
secure any games, hence the team for that year was disbanded. There also 
are managers who have not financial ability or thrift enough to run a team 
successfully, as was recently demonstrated by a manager who left the baseball 


association in debt one hundred and thirty-five dollars. And last of all the 
energetic managers who allow no stagnation ; who, as soon as they have work 
elected them to do or see what ought and can be done, immediately set about 
its accomplishment, — men who are conscientious and capable. We had them 
in times past, but now, we are glad to say, such men are the ride. 

And now, as we have been criticising the managers, it is only fair to criti- 
cise their difficulties. At best, the management of a team is a thankless job; 
there is a lot of trouble ; money to be collected, everything to be attended to 
and provided for — plenty of responsibility and little pleasure, save in working 
for the students and the college. There is not credit and honor enough in the 
position ; in fact, few appreciate a manager's troubles.- 

The Index wishes to thank the managers of the various athletic teams for 
the time and work they have devoted to their duties and to compliment them 
upon the success that has accompanied their efforts. 

Our Prospective Athletic Field. 

A topic of much uncertainty to the undergraduate mind, and yet concern- 
ing which many rumors have circulated and have been talked about, is the 
possibility of our having an enclosed athletic field within our college grounds. 
We all want such a field and we all feel the need of supporting the team in 
part by gate receipts. Contrary to the general custom in other colleges our 
alumni are not accustomed to help support our team financially or in other 
ways, such as by coaching. By taxes levied upon the students and by sub- 
scriptions obtained from the Facility we are able to collect barely enough 
money to run the various teams; so our teams are compelled to do without a 
training table, and to do without a coach half the time needed. We are also 
unable to pay the guarantees necessary to get other teams to play us on the 
home grounds ; so, unless we want to cut lectures, take long and often expen- 
sive trips, we are unable to help our teams by cheering them on to victory 
and are unable to follow their work save in the newspapers. 

We are glad to say that this cloud of rumor is not all smoke and just as 
where there's smoke there must be fire, so there is foundation for all this stir 
and excitement about an athletic field. 

In December, 1892, a letter was sent by Prof. Brooks to the Board of 
Trustees petitioning them for a designated tract of land, not exceeding five 
acres, belonging to the college, to be appropriated to the use of the students 
of this college for a field for athletic sports. This petition being acted upon 
favorably by the Trustees at their next meeting, Prof. Brooks sent a circular to 
all the graduates of M. A. C. asking them to pledge money for constructing 


the grounds. During the summer of '93 promises of money came quite freely 
and seven to eight hundred dollars were pledged as a result of this one set of 
letters. Such was the general depression caused by the panic of '93 that 
further attempts at raising money were deferred, and not until '98 was it 
thought feasible to revive energetically the work of procuring the means to 
build an athletic field. Of course all along the idea was in the thoughts of 
those interested in M. A. C. and athletics therein, and so when prosperity 
returned in 'H8 a corporation was formed which issued capital stock to pay for 
fitting up the field. Then when all was ready it was found that the charter 
was drawn up or obtained erroneously — so again a standstill ensued. But not 
for long; the mistake is now rectified, and more determination to push the pro- 
ject through is shown than ever before. 

But still another difficulty is to be confronted. The field designated by 
Prof. Brooks in his first circular has been found so marshy and low that it can 
not be properly drained ; hence all thought of utilizing that land for an athletic 
field has been abandoned. The purchase of a field better located and natur- 
ally far better fitted for this purpose is being negotiated, but for reasons that 
seem to us not worthy of mention by those interested in their Alma Mater, the 
owners have so far been unwilling to part with their land. Let us hope that 
public rather than selfish interests will prevail. 

At various alumni gatherings, especially at the banquet held here last 
commencement for alumni and students, this topic of an athletic field has been 
paramount and much enthusiasm has been aroused. Last spring, also, a peti- 
tion was drawn up by Prof. Babson and signed by the members of the four 
classes, wherein were stated the reasons why an enclosed athletic field is con- 
sidered not only an advantage but a necessity to a healthy condition of athletics 
in our college, and wherein was made an appeal for this field to the alumni in 
the name of college spirit, patriotism, and love of Alma Mater. 

The alumni and the Faculty are fostering this project, but the students 
should also do their share. This can be accomplished by success in the games 
played by our college athletic teams. Students, help the teams in every way 
possible ; honor the members of the teams ; encourage training, discourage 
breaking training. The more creditable the work of our teams the more 
enthusiasm will be aroused among the alumni and the more will they contri- 
bute to our prospective athletic field.

Now that you this book have o'erlooked and perused, 
And have smiled at the roasts and the puns that amused, 
Perhaps, if at all, you have thought from the rest 
What part you have chosen to view as the best. 
And we of the Board of our offspring have views, 
Result of our labors, our lies, and of news; 
And the part, to confess, of the who'e we think best 
We fear we must mention the end, — and a rest.
