Ralph Eliott Smith 

HAS born in Boston, Massachusetts, January g, 1874. His fam- 
ily soon after moved to Newton, Massachusetts, where he re- 
ceived his early education. He was graduated from the 
Newton High School with the class of 1890. 

Mr. Smith entered the Massachusetts Agricultural Col- 
lege in the fall of 1890 and graduated in 1894. I-fe was class 
president for one year and played on his class football team 
for two years. He belongs to the *. 2. K. fraternity. 

Soon after graduating Mr. Smith was appointed Instructor of Botany and 
German at the Massachusetts Agricultural College which position he held un- 
til June, 1895, when he was made Assistant Professor of Botany and German. 
The year 1898 Mr. Smith spent in the University of Munich, Germany, mak- 
ing a specialty of Vegetable Pathology, and during the summers of 1899 and 
1900 he pursued the same studies in the Summer Schools of Harvard College. 
Prof. Smith has for years been interested in the subject of Vegetable Patholo- 
gy and has been doing a great deal of work along that line in connection with 
the Department of Vegetable Pathology at the Hatch Experiment Station. 
He has published a book on "Botrytis and Sclerotuna." 

Prof. Smith is a champion of all athletics and has applied himself to the 
difficult task of placing the athletics at Massachusetts Agricultural College on 
a firm basis. In doing this he has overcome many difficulties and is almost 
daily overcoming more. He has made the Alumni realize that in graduating 
they have not done their whole duty but that each and every alumnus is under 
an obligation to help his Alma Mater in every way he can, and that the best 
way an Alumnus can help "Massachusetts" is by helping to support the Ath- 
letic Association. Mr. Smith is secretary and treasurer of the Athletic Asso- 
ciation. Few members of the Faculty are as popular as Professor Smith. 
Having been a student at the college under circumstances almost identical 
with those of many of the present students he appreciates the position of the 
students better than any other member of the Faculty and he is always willing 
to lend a helping hand to any one in need. His interest in athletics brings him 
into close relationship with the fellows, and any one knowing the man can- 
not help admiring him. 

It is because of his gentlemanly manner, his desire to be of service to the 
students, and as a slight tribute in appreciation of the great work which he 
js doing for the Athletic Association, that the class of 1903 dedicates this 
volume of The Index to Ralph Eliott Smith.

A Tribute to Naughty-one* 

As flowers bloom through the summer months, 
Spreading their fragrance far and near, 

Giving, through beaut)', to human hearts. 
Feelings of hope and of cheer, — 

So in our busy, bustling lives. 

The friends who to us are so dear. 
Are friends by the traits that impress us most ; 

They depart but the imprint is there. 

A class has gone from among us ; 

It has had its season of growth, 
And meanwhile, with earnest endeavor, 

Has taught us in war and peace. 

We had come to love these brothers so : 

Found worthy of our sacred trust ; 
But like the short and sweet-lived flowers, 
They have shown the path of the just. 

We're to watch and guide the brothers 

Who have come to us, in turn, 
'Till their lives, each with the others. 

May be likened to one grand song. 

But we shall always remember. 

And that with breasts filled with pride. 

The class which has gone before us, 
On that path of constant rise. 

May their path ever lead upward, 

And let them not think we forget 
The host of ways and the means 

By which we, to them, are in debt.

Class History* 

N MANY respects the career of a class in college, strikingly 
resembles the course of a human life. First of all, there is 
the same period of infancy. Everything is new and strange 
and the untried future stretches before, dim and dark and 

Then comes the season of youth, and with it the days of 
pranks and scrapes and general recklessness. Then a brief 
time of early manhood, let us say, when the first taste of power comes 
and the first sense of any real responsibility is felt. And finally, the rapidly 
flitting moments of mature age, marked by a full participation in all activities, 
then by a gradual withdrawal from them, till nothing is left but to look back 
over the past and forward to the days when, with a short and sudden flash of 
prominence, there comes the end. 

Through all the vicissitudes of the several periods save the last, the class 
of 1902 has struggled, and just as the curtain rises on the final scenes, we sub- 
mit to the Index for the last time, our history. As we look back over the long 
period in which the class has been together, we can now see the picture clearly, 
freed as it is from the distortion hitherto produced by too short a perspective. 
Before the faint but uncolored rays which time casts over the scenes, events 
once thought to be of mountainous importance, are now completely forgot- 
ten; others little regarded at the time, now stand out in bold relief. In short, 
for the first time we get a correct vision of our past career. 

Of the early days we need say little. The story has already been told, 
and at a time when the sufferings and hardships of the Freshman's lot were 
much more vividly impressed upon our minds. Entering as we did, the first 
class to be protected by a solicitous Faculty from the hazer's clutches, we have 
yet much to remember. Not soon will we forget the blustering braggadocio, of 
" Parmie" and Crowell; the frequent encounters with Naughty-one, the happ}' 
moments spent in the mathematical room, not to speak of the instructive 
hours of Agriculture, all cherished memories. With our Sophomore year, in- 
creased burdens came upon us; they were not neglected. Here again it is 
needless to spend time. Our adventures at Belchertown and within the por- 
tals of the Chemical Department are not unknown to men; nor will our un- 
checked athletic victories be soon forgotten. 


Of the events of the Junior year, more might be said. The opening term 
may be summed up in two words — Index and Ph^'sics. Between our Scylla 
and Char3'bdis we might well have been crushed forever. Somehow, however, 
we got out the one, and got out of the other, and thenceforth went our wa}' 

The winter term witnessed the bloodless battle of the "Rise, Decline and 
Fall of Bloxam." Aside from this, there was little of interest. It is true that 
Claflin with a view of enlivening things a bit, did write an oration on "Lazi- 
ness is Loneliness," but the English Department suspected a "lack of know- 
ledge of the subject" and the class had to worry along without the benefit of 
his words of wisdom. 

Spring came at last and with it after a huge amount of work and worry, 
the long-talked of Chemical Trip to the pulp and paper mills of Mt. Tom and 
Holyoke and the brewery at Springfield, followed in the evening by a rousing- 
banquet tendered to us by the Freshman class. Many were the slanderous 
statements circulated among the student body after our return; in proof of 
their total falsity, we need only say that the last man out of the brewery was 
D. Nelson West. Landscape gardening also occupied much of our leisure 
time. Few scenes in all history could be more impressive than a \'iew of old 
Naughty-Two, obediently trotting along in the footsteps of their beloved in- 
structor as he flitted from tree to tree, and singing as they went: "Follow, fol- 
low, we will follow Sammy." in rude and rythmic chorus. The effect was sim- 
ply sublime and the learning acquired something tremendous. It is true that 
Rannie did make rather a bad break once in citing as an e\'ergreen, "Pyrus 
malus — the weeping apple." It ma}' have been too that some few others 
acquired more skill in such gymnastic exercises as vaulting out a conveniently 
placed window than they did in the art of home decoration, but after all, 
these are but mere incidents, absolutely incomparable with the surpassing- 
value of the exercise. 

When summer came, we left five or six men as a squad to look after things 
while we were gone, and the most of us cleared out till fall. When we came 
back, we found everything in pretty fair condition, though our sentinels 
seemed to have watched over the treasure up around the plant house a little 
better than they did over anything else. Claf. performed one of the miracles 
of the age by staying around and working hard all summer, and what was 
more, Kinney pretty nearl}' duplicated the performance. Cook had an eye to 
business and started to run in opposition to Bodfish with a "weather bureau," all 
his own; it is not yet known whether he will make a success of it or not. 
And Carpenter, they say, tore around so fast that his trail got all mixed up so 
that we find it next to impossible to say where he hadn't been. 

The opening of the fall semester found all of us back and one more. As 

Seniors our career has so far been brief; but no one will say that it has not 
been characterized b_v extreme dignity on our part. Why John Hall and 
Rannie Morse and a few kindred spirits took in the Amherst Fair just to act 
as a restraining influence on the Freshmen, and everybody knows how well 
they succeeded. Yet let it not be supposed for a minute that we have made 
light of our responsibility. Already under our leadership the college has 
adopted a respectable college yell. Good progress has been made toward a 
college song. The nickname "Aggie," objectionable for 3'ears, has at last 
been stricken from the students' vocabulary. 

It is not to be claimed that these important reforms are due solely to our 
efforts. Without the co-operation of the Student body, none of them could 
have succeeded. Yet few reforms ever come without leaders, and to the 
leader, credit is due. On the other hand, what we have done in no sense ex- 
empts us from the consideration of future problems. In the brief time before 
our active life as a class must end, let us continue the good work and make 
the entire record of 1902 in example and in actual accomplishments, a record 
to be envied and remembered. k.

Class History. 

1 — ■ — ^ S THE history of a people or of a nation is but a record of the 
/^/^ h facts concerning that people or that nation, so the history of 
a class is no more than a record of the trials and struggles 
and conquests of that class. 

Taken as we were from the East and West, North and 

South; taken green from the farm and fresh from the city, we 

stand as a true representation of a class in college, and a 

class with life. 

That we have not wasted our time, can be attested by almost anyone. 

We are always up and doing. Whether early or late, it made, or makes no 

difference, anywhere there is work to be done, anywhere there is information, 

no matter of what kind to be obtained, anywhere there is any fun to be had, 

that is where we are. 

But to go back to our history where we left it a year ago. After winning 
the rope-pull we gave our attention to football. From the very first we ex- 
pected to win this game. By the advice of the Juniors, the freshmen refused to 
play unless our \'arsity men were kept out. We agreed to this change with the 
understanding that the varsity men were to be kept out of all class games. 
The day of the event came and — well the game was not even interesting. 
All our fellows had to do was just to pick up the ball and make a touchdown. 
Following close upon the ball game came Thanksgiving, and as ever 
our class, always as one, loathing to separate even for a few days determined 
to celebrate the recess in Amherst, and thereby hangs a tale. Veritably, no 
Thanksgiving could be a day of thanks and praise without a good supper. So 
we hustled around and prepared one of the finest "feeds" that has ever been 
seen within the walls of any freshman's room. 

Soon we went home for the holidays, but after the new year returned, 
to find ourselves sole guardians and protectors of an unusually large class of 
the Winter Course Men. And we took good care of them, too. Early in 
the winter we decided to follow the custom introduced by our foster-fathers 
of holding a formal Sophomore dinner. A custom which 1902 did not 
take kindly to, as they have not and never have had the least love or 
appreciation for the social side of life. Why, they would not even go to 

Springfield to attend a complimentary banquet given then by 1904 until they 
could combine pleasure with business and make the expense of one trip an- 
swer for both. So on the night of January 17, we piled into a drag and were 
drawn swiftly over the road to South Deerfield, receiving the "glad hand" as 
we passed through Sunderland singing: 

The Sophomore's foot is ou the ground, 

Sunderland, my Sunderland. 
We'll do the town up nice and brown, 

Sunderland, my Sunderland. 
But g've us all of thy hotel store, 

And we'll leave thy streets forevermore. 
And be the happy class of yore, 

Sunderland, my Sunderland. 

Spring came bringing with it the joys of outdoor sports and the pleas- 
ure of listening to two hour lectures on various subjects with side issues on 
morals and home training. But even these lectures became a true pleasure, 
for as we sat in that hot room we had ample time to plan just what we would 
do when we climbed out the windows on Sammy the next hour. O! those 
were beautiful days without a thought and without a care. 

The freshmen refused to play baseball until we broke the rule, which in 
the Fall had been made for their especial benefit, and allowed the varsity men 
to play. This left our team badly handicapped as the freshmen had five var- 
sity men and we had but one. Everybody assured us that the game was as 
good as lost and all we had to do was just to go out and keep the score from 
running up into the sixties, and the freshmen believing those stories immedi- 
ately became so busy that they could find no time to play that game only 
sometime during Commencement Week. But say! that game was a caution 
to the saints. Our men went out on that diamond with smiling faces and 
determination to win, and win they did after the most exciting ten-inning 
game that can be imagined and with a score of 18 — 13 at that! We can 
play marbles. So having "bolted" the examination in German we went 

As the days were beginning to grow shorter and the cold winds to 
sweep the waters we left our hammocks and our boats and returned to these 
halls of learning. Here a surprise awaited us. Our well planned "bolt" 
had failed and we were "stuck," everyone. But our whole time has not 
been devoted to athletic contests. We have started a new feature in the 
college, and that is that each class should have a "class song," to be sung 
while in college. Heretofore the classes have composed and sung their song 
at the time of their graduation, and such a thing as underclasses having a 

regular song had not been heard of. Last winter at our Sophomore Dinner, 
we elected a committee to choose a class song. The committee has per- 
formed its work and we now have two class songs. The idea has been 
picked up by other classes, '04 already having a song and '05 has one in 

But enough of these fond memoirs. It were an easy matter to write on 
and on about such a class. But those days are past and gone, we must now 
make the most of the present and prepare for the future. We have treated 
many things lightly. We have had our fun, at all times, in all shapes, and in 
all places. We have passed by our cares with a happy laugh and looked at the 
future only as some vague, incomprehensible monster away off in the distance. 
Let us still meet our troubles with a hearty laugh, but let us not forget there 
is a serious side to life for which we must prepare. m.

Class History* 

URS has been a most e\'entful year in college, and we desire to 
thank the upperclass men for the training we have received. 
Entering college with fear and trepidation for the unknown 
that lay before us, ignorant of so many things that are essen- 
tial to good li\'ing, our knowledge has developed in this one 
}-ear, to amazing proportions. We do not say this egotisti- 
cally and without reason, but refer the skeptical to our 
worth}' instructors, especially our Mathematical god-father. Although we 
would not deign to be presumptuous in saying our class contains prodigies, 
yet we can honestly confess that we are astonished at what it is bringing forth. 
In athletics it is true we ha\-e not accomplished wonders; yielding to the 
inevitable we surrendered our football game to superiors. They, however, did 
not have the eas}' time they anticipated, neither did they run the score up to 
the hea\'ens, while we remained in the lower depths. In basketball the 
naughtj'-threes found their match; the score being 9-7 in our favor. 

In fact this was the game in which we excelled, defeating both the 
Seniors and Winter Course men, yielding only to the famous team of 1902, 
whom we feel bound to honor and hope that we may follow in their footsteps. 
In baseball we were also defeated, but furnished some excellent material for 
the varsity, which in a measure compensated our loss. 

It is with no little pleasure that we note the ability of our class to intro- 
duce new professors to the customs and traditions of college life. Our dearly 
beloved French professor came to us 

Unmoulded and imsuug, 

But without fear we took the harp, 
And while our fingers moved among 

The silver strings, no sharp 
Or harsh discordant strains 

Disturbed the silence of the night 
Or racked the weary brain. 

But with sweet and gentle voices and skillful fingers, we moulded the 
plastic clay and sang his praises till the heavens rang with our shouts and the 

faculty sat down on us, and yet we learned much while under his benign 
instruction; to record all would require volumes. 

The long winter had its pleasures too, no less delightful than the spring. 
for it brought to us snow-ball fights, rushes in the snow, and "sich like." And 
then the balmy spring — but why dwell upon these joys, when to lie beneath 
the lofty elm was more to be desired than the confining class-room. And 
then too the spring brought us that greatest of blessings our class supper, 
when the. Freshmen trials are over and the Sophomore joys begin. This 
event will remain a bright spot in our lives, never to be forgotten. 

Returning in September with renewed strength and vigor, by contact 
with Mother Earth, like the fabled giant of old; we met a formidable array of 
sixty-five adventuresome youths and maidens whose course was in a measure 
to be shaped by us. We were denied the delightful privilege of rushing this 
mighty army from the Campus, but used other means of cooling their ardor 
which, strange as it may seem, appears to possess every youthful aspirant to 
college life. 

Not the least among the achievements of which we boast is our class 
yell. As progress is the law of nations and men, so the class of '04 concluded 
that it should be numbered among the progressive workers of the day, and 
after due deliberation decide to drop the diminutive Aggie and substitute in 
its stead a larger, broader, more suggestive word and one in honor of our 
noble state, whose name our college bears — Massachusetts. Other classes fol- 
lowed suit and finally the old college yell has been abandoned and in the future 
a new and better yell will encourage our teams on to victory, and no college 
shall be ashamed to be beaten by the " Massachusetts." It is with no little 
pride therefore that the class of '04 declares that it was the first to take de- 
cided action in this matter, which has finally resulted in the decision of the 
student body to abolish the name Aggie. 

One thing we have been sorry to note is the decrease of our member- 
ship; but probably it is better that our wings be clipped occasionally lest we 
fly too high. But we are ready for the battle and will fight to the finish. It 
was not long after returning this fall, that we fell into the loving clutches of 
Prof. Ostrander, who has tried to impress upon our weary brains the mysteries 
of the sine and cosine; but we fear that many of his valuable thoughts have 
gone off on a tangent. However, our Parson has developed into a mathema- 
tical fiend and a profound — sleeper. In chemistry Prof. Howard has had con- 
siderable difficulty in making us comprehend the mystery of the atomic theory, 
perhaps this is because there is only one molecule among our number and he 
consists of three or four molecules and almost half a dozen atoms. We feared 
one time that we should lose him, but now are happy in the fact that he will 
remain, but if he would take a little brotherly counsel, we would advise him 

not to eat so much since he is keeping store, lest he change the constitution 
of his matter and burst; and as we have no formulae at present by which we 
could arrange his atoms, the event is horrible to contemplate. 

Our Dutch blood is getting so sluggish that der Hcrr Smith is becoming 
disgusted with our thick tongues and thicker brains. We would not forget to 
mention the fact that the Cadet Band, now become famous, was composed at 
its beginning for the most part from our class. But why enumerate an}- more 
of our accomplishments — 'twould take a volume to comprise them. Taken 
all in all, we are a happy-go-lucky class, read}' for a tumble anytime and still 
mamtain our rank as one of the most intellectual classes this college has thus 
far produced — ahem ! 

1904 Class Song, 

Tune, " Miss Philippine." 

" We're a class full of dash, 

As you all know, 

We are known as Satan's own, 

Everywhere we go. 

Naughty -five won't be alive. 

When we get through. 

Wer'e.a happy, scrappy, dashing, slashing, 

Merry, daring crew. 

There was ne'er a crowd so happy ; 

Nor half so scrappy 

As this class of four ; 

And we're out for fun once more ; 

This haughty, naughty, sporty, naughty-four. 

You can hear our merry shout. 

Every time that we go out, 

Full of sport we're just the sort. 

Rah, rah, rah, rah, rah — R.\H. 

We will beat you black and blue, naughty-five, 

We won't leave a man of you alive. 

For we are a scrappy crew, 

As you'll know when we get through, 

This haughty, naught}', sport}', naughty-four. 

When you hear us coming down the street, 

Hide behind the first tree that you meet. 

For we're out again to-night. 

And we're spoiling for a fight. 

We're the class of naughty-four.

Class History* 

LEAR the way, here comes a mob, but no, let us take a closer 
view. It is the Freshmen class,. 

We were not at all surprised at the other classes taking us 
for a mob, for surely we are equal to a mob in numbers, 
although we do not think ourselves that we look like one. 

Perhaps the Sophomores will think that we are a mob be- 
fore we get through college, and, also, through with them. 

The first night after entering college we held a meeting, elected a class 
captain and formed a plan of action for the rush which we were looking for- 
ward to with so much joy. All of this was done without the knowledge of the 
Sophomores, so they had no chance to intefere with our meeting. 

I am sure that all of us will remember that first meeting of our class. In 
that calm, secluded spot we formed some plans which would have proved dis- 
astrous to our opponents if we had met them upon the campus. 

Much to our regret, but to the joy of the Sophomores, the Freshmen- 
Sophomore rush did not take place, on account of the President's threat to 
expel both the class captains should any such event take place. But we 
would not be doing justice if we did not mention the little scrap that took 
place on the walk, on the east side of the pond. At first sight it looked as 
though the Sophs were planning on giving us a bath, but it turned out as 
might have been expected, for what do the Sophomores think that they could 
do rushing such a class as '05. 

We admit that the Sophomores had the pleasure of patting each other on 
the back, and exclaiming "the Freshmen rope is ours now," but soon all of 
their joy was turned into sorrow, for, when they went to look for their own 
rope, it was gone. Just imagine the contrast in their looks. But a few nights 
ago they came into the hash-house with very pleasant faces, but to us it was 
an aggravating smile, now you see them going in and coming out as before, 
but that little smile that was there the night that they took from their pockets 
the pieces of our rope has vanished. Their rope is ours. 

Our class is composed of many able bodied men, and there is no reason 
why we should not come off victorious in the rope pull. We are not a class to 
boast of what we can do, nor what we will do, we perfer rather to wait and see 
what we can accomplish when we are put to the test. From an athletic stand- 
point, we can say that we are exceedingly strong, for four of our men are play- 

ing on the varsity foot-ball team, and two acting as substitutes. And fronl 
all appearances an equal number of our members are well deserving of a placte 
on the varsity base-ball team. 

We are a large class, and it has been prophesied that not over one- 
half of us will graduate. Come now, boys, are we going to allow such a 
prophesy as this to come true? Surely not, it must not be! Every one of us 
can graduate if we only go about it in the right way, and make up our minds 
that we are going to get there. This does not apply to all of us, for already 
several have passed off certain studies of the Freshmen and Junior years, and 
one of our number is so far advanced as to be able to accomplish the difficult 
task of tutoring the upper classmen. 

Judging from actions and conversations, we feel safe in saying that a few 
of us have had a taste of homesickness, but as we have overcome the terrible 
disease, we must be, as Professor Hasbrouck says, "full of grit." 

In one thing we are the envy of the other classes. We have two co-eds. 
It has not been the custom in the past for those of the female sex to stay at 
this college for any length of time. But boys, let us act in such a gentle- 
manly way towards these, our classmates, that they shall be glad to staj^ 
and graduate with the class of '05. Also let us act gentlemanly towards our 
superiors, and show them that we know our place and how to keep it, so 
that we shall be an honor to the college and our friends.

Review of the Year* 

T IS our purpose, in giving a review of the year, to 
cover the course of college events in a general way. 
Since the '"02 Index" was published, a great many things 
have come about which lead us to believe that the college is 
entering upon a new era of prosperity. 

The college band, which was organized last year with M. 
H. West, '03 as leader, has become a great success. Besides 
giving several concerts in the band stand, it has fulfiilled two engagements out 
of town. When Senator Gardner reviewed the battalion last spring, he was 
so well pleased with the band that, after he returned to Boston, he intro- 
duced a bill into the legislature for an appropriation of four hundred dollars 
for its benefit. This bill later passed both houses without difficulty. 

President Goodell and the trustees of the college were successful in 
getting an appropriation bill for eight thousand dollars through the state 
legislature last spring. Of this, twenty-five hundred dollars was to be 
put into the chemical department, and the remainder was to be used in gen- 
eral improvement. The result of this was quite noticeable when the students 
came back this fall. We will speak of that later, however. The subject of a 
new boarding house was broached at the same time this bill was brought up, 
but it was not thought expedient to press it at that time. We shall probably 
have one in a few years, anyway. 

Last season we has the best base-ball team on the field that we have 
ever had. It won one practice game from Amherst, and games from the 
University of Maine, the University of Vermont, and Middlebury. As there is 
much promising material in the Freshmen class our prospects seem bright in 
that line. 

During the past year, Professor Lull has been arranging, and adding to 
the Zoological Museum. It is now one of the most attractive features of the 
college. It has been perfected, apparently, as much as it can be in the space 
which is at present allowed it. 

The extra money put into the chemical department is apparently being 
used for a good purpose. The chemical force has been greatly increased 

There are now seventeen undergraduates working in the laboratory. This 
gives the students interested in this line of work a fine opportunity to per- 
fect themselves. 

When the students came back to college this fall, the first sight that met 
their eyes was the brown paint daubed on a great many of the college build- 
ings. Everybody wondered why. At any rate the new covering, in most 
cases, was scarely better than the old one. 

There were many genuine improvements, however. The new arrange- 
ment of heating the drill hall from the chapel furnace has given place for a 
new rubbing room in the drill hall bulling and, at the same time, the heating 
of the building by steam is much more easily accomplished than it was by the 
old method of water-pipes. The introduction of new benches and floors in the 
Botanical Museum adds greatly to its inside appearance. 

We have the largest Freshmen class this fall that has entered here for 
years. It consists of fifty-seven students including two co-eds. They have 
contributed four men to the Varsity foot-ball team and they seem to have 
good men for other lines of athletics. Our hope for them is, that next fall 
may see two-thirds of them back here again. 

The old plan of having three terms in the college year has been abandoned 
and the "Semester plan" substituted in its place. This is the plan that is 
being followed in all the larger colleges, and its adoption in our college is a 
step in the right direction. 

The College Senate which was first organized three years ago, up to this 
time has been little more than a farce. It now, however, seems really set on 
accomplishing some thing. It has had two co-operative meetings, with a com- 
mittee of the faculty at President Goodell's house. It has been successful in 
regulating several of the college customs. It has not yet, however, found a 
good substitute for the campus rush. 

The student body has finally taken action and got rid of that old word 
which has caused so much grumbling — "Aggie." One morning after chapel, a 
vote was taken to eliminate it entirely from all college publications. Soon 
after this, an article appeared in one of the daily papers which stated that the 
students of the college simply wished to get rid of the nickname "Aggie," but 
did not object to the word "Agricultural." We don't know where that corres- 
pondent got his idea. It is certain that he was sadh^ misinformed. They do 
strongly object not only to "Aggie" but also to "Agricultural." They 
earnestly consider that, since agriculture forms so small a part of our curricu- 
lum, the word "Agricultural" greatly misrepresents us before the people of 
the state. The name that seems most proper and most pleasing is "Massa- 
chusetts State College." 

As a consequence of this action of the student body, the name of the 
college paper had to be changed. After a long discussion, the name suggested 
by Smith, '04 and the cover design submitted by C. A. Tinker, '04 were 
accepted. The new name is "The College Signal." The design is a maroon 
flag on a. white field, the flag bearing a white " M," and the staff piercing the 
state shield. 

Our foot-ball team has made the most creditable showing of any team 
that this college has ever put in the field. It has won eight games out of 
nine, including Wesleyan, Holy Cross, and Amherst. It was beaten by 
Williams, but only after a hard battle. 

One great need that we have felt in past years is to have a coach for the 
football and baseball teams during the entire season. It has not been possi- 
ble up to this time, but, it looks as though things were going to be different in 
the future. After the game with Wesleyan, a circular was sent out to the 
Alumni and, in less than a week, mone}^ enough was received to hire a foot- 
ball coach all next season. 

On all occasions where a college yell was needed, it has been felt that our 
old one was not adequate. Our new yell makes it possible for our fellows to 
make themselves heard for a long distance. A great step forward has been 
taken in appointing a regular man to lead the college cheering. Another 
need is a college song. A committee has been elected to look after this 
matter also. We may expect to see the result of their work soon. 

Surely this college never had a brighter future. Our athletics are pros- 
pering, our courses of study are being bettered, our alumni are awakened to 
the real needs, and our spirit is, more than e\'er before, forming itself into a 
real being.

Class History* 

:^=H"H?^T was after the Christmas feast was over that the Short Course 
^J?vS^ that the classes stood gazing in wonderment when we arrived, 

men of igni arrived at "Massachusetts." Was it any wonder 

for we were far superior in numbers to any Short Course 
T Class of the previous years. 

We had not been here many days when it was suggested 
to us by one of our professors, that we meet some evening 
and organize a club in order to further the advancement of social relations 
between the members. A meeting was called on the evening of January 4th, 
and proved very satisfactory. The necessary officers were elected and the 
club was given the name of S. C. C. 

One night during one of the meetings of this club, we were suddenly in- 
terrupted by a shower of snowballs which came pouring in through the open 
window. The windows were soon closed but still the snow came, bringing 
glass and everything before it. We rushed for the door only to find our pro- 
gress there was stayed for the door was securely fastened from the outside. 
After doing a lot of pulling and prying at the door, also uttering some hot 
and hearty words, we managed to open the door enough to cut the rope which 
held it. On reaching the outside of the building we were met with a shower 
of snowballs; a snowball fight ensued which was closely followed by a rush. 
The 32 S. C. C. were green at such, but had we been of equal numbers the 
victory would surely have been ours. 

The class represented all ages, for the youth of sixteen to the grayhaired 
man of sixty were to be found within our ranks. And then we had a lamb 
and giant, something which every class could not boast of. The lamb soon 
learned to follow the other members from house to house, never stopping to 
knock, but, like all little pets, walking in and taking possession before it was 

We must not forget to pay respect to our assistant, Professor Wright. 

For a long time, we were not favored with the presence of this noble 
youth ; but one bright day during the latter part of January, he came walking 
in with his long and flowing mustache, and dark and curly hair. The way in 

which he instructed us, and also the assistance that he rendered to the profes- 
sors whenever one of those learned men chanced to make a mistake was well 
deserving the credit of a man older in years. Although Cornell proved to be 
such an excellent instructor he was not long to remain with us, and judging 
from a financial basis it was just as well he did not stay longer, for the salt 
that he was carrying away in his pockets each day was beginning to lower the 
barrel and also to heighten the temper of the instructors. 

Why did the giant of our class turn so many colors when Prof. Cooley 
was giving one of his most instructive lectures. We are of the opinion that 
the back entrance to Jones' house could, if it could speak, unfold to us the 
mystery that is lingering on our minds. Keep away, Streeter, maids are not 
for little- bo)'s like you. 

Our last evening at college was spent in our club room and it was during 
that evening that the one whom we had thought so distant and unsociable 
proved to be a dear and social friend. 

How little do we as individuals know the trials and griefs of others, some- 
times in our very midst. 

After we had completed all the duties imposed upon us, and on the last 
night of our stay in Amherst, we were invited by N. I. Bowditch of Framing- 
ham to partake of a supper especially prepared for us at the hotel. 

During the evening the certificates were distributed and prizes awarded, 
and on the following morning the Short Coursers left for their respective 
homes with a feeling of love and respect for all the faculty and the students 
of the Massachusetts Agricultural College. T.

The Romance of a Skeleton, 

Long years ago in sunny France, 

A peasant's daughter fair, 
Tripped and laughed in merry glee 

And sang in the balmy air. 

She gleaned the wheat, and trod the grapes 

That made the purple wine, 
And when the day drew to a close. 

She milked the lowing kine. 

As time went by, and she older grew 

This daughter of the field. 
Her winning ways and beauty made 

Many a heart to yield. 

She smiled upon them all in turn. 

But when to her they said 
The words so often spoke in vain, 

She shook her raven head. 

At last there came a count, 

He of noble family tree. 
And she gave up her rural home, 

A favored countess to be. 

The daintiest of dresses graced her form. 

The rarest of jewels were hers. 
And her maids about her wrapped 

The richest of furs. 

She trod the floors of marble. 

With ever a stately grace, 
And royalty looked with admiring eyes, 

At the woman's lovely face. 

For a while her skies were cloudless. 

Her life was one of pleasure. 
And then her sunshine turned to fog, 

And misery filled her measure. 

Her husband proved to be untrue, 

And unfiitted for the strife, 
She found herself a helpless waif, 

Upon the sands of life. 

Down, down she sank, she could not stop. 

The misery and the shame, 
It was but another time; 

When man was the one to blame. 

At last upon a crowded street. 
The wheels she sank beneath, 

And when the hospital they had reached. 
Her soul had sought its peace. 

But what about her body, I ask. 

Could it not at last recline 
In quiet, beneath the somber earth. 

At least a right divine. 

Ah, no, not this its fate to be. 
Her life of misery was closed, 

But by the edict of men, 
Her body found no respose. 

She went across the brin)' deep. 

Into a foreign land, 
There to spend her days and nights. 

Upon a wooden stand. 

In Dickie's Lab. our friend now hangs, 

Suspended in mid-air. 
Gazing idly about the room. 

With a fixed and vacant stare. 

For many a day thus has she hung, 

With never a sign of protest. 
Ever a mute and willing problem, 

A student's knowledge to test. 

Her teeth are gone, her ribs are broken, 

Her head now off, now on. 
Aids the Prof, to give his lectures. 

To furnish the photographer fun. 

Her hand is taken by any man, 
And never a blush she shows. 

Although I hardly would believe, 
That half the men she knows. 

Ah, such are the vicissitudes of time! 

Such the fickleness of rank! 
Full many a time, with many a one 

Has fortune played such a prank. 

And an}- of us in time to come, 

When our career is done. 
May grace the walls of science halls, 

A grinning skeleton. 

The Student^s Dream; 

or, The Bag- of Wind. 

A student dreamed of the Blokey's pod, 
That never was lank and lean like a rod, 
But round and fat and full of old rye; 
A goodly sight for a student's eye. 
The little fat Bloke\' sat in his chair, 
And cast at the wall a stonj' stare. 

How to promote the ones he should not, 

Was working and turning beneath his top-knot, 

E'en as he thought and looked around, 

His pod began to dwindle down. 

A hissing sound as of 'scaping steam. 

Or tire torn gaping, changed the scene. 

"Dear me! what's this that sounds so loud," 

My pod of which I've been so proud, 

AH gone! and I, then all will say. 

Will simply pass as Johnnie A., 

Without my pod I'd ne'er be known, 

I'd drill demerits all alone. 

"Now I must quickly find some friend. 

Who will, perhaps, this rupture mend, 

Before it gets a wider rend. 

That it may yet again distend. 

Coporal Tinker! he's the man. 

In tactics, sure, he'll touch the pan." 

"In some way or other he will and can 
Preserve me yet a round, fat man. 
Or there is 'Tabby,' the Man of Schemes, 
I think his schemes could turn to seams. 
And that, perhaps, by needle and thread. 
He may tide me o'er," the Blokey said. 

Just then a rap on the door was heard. 

And the Blokey in fear himself bestirred, 

The door was opened by Doctor Babb, 

Whose face the Freshman had made very sad. 

The Blokey thought him very wise. 

And sought in this great trouble his advice. 


Said Babb, "I think it will be well 

For you to let tne right away sell 

The old, you see, and buy anew." 

" 'Tis done," said Blokey, "that's my view. 

"For then, no one could ever doubt 

How full I am around about." 

Just then the clock's eight even strokes 
Resounded loud, the student woke. 
And there before his 'stonished eyes. 
The Blokey stood in former guise, 
And burst from his lips this awful ban, 
"Give ten demerits to this man." 


The Lament of a Freshman* 

Backward! turn backward! Father Time iu your flight, 

Feed me on gruel again just for to-night, 

I am so weary of sole leather steak, 

Petrified doughnuts, vulcanized cake, 

Clams that swim in a watery bath. 

Butter as strong as Goliath of Gath, 

Weary of pa3'ing for what I can't eat, 

Chewing up rubber and calling it meat. 

Weary of taking from sophomore waiters, 

Gristley chops and wormy potatoes. 

Backward! turn backward! for weary I am, 

Give me a whack at my grandmother's jam. 

Let me for once sit down at a table, 

Where there is anything else than a noisy rabble. 

Give me, oh give me some coffee that's good. 

Instead of that black, indigestible mud. 

Let me have milk that has never been skimmed, 

Let me have meat whose hair has been trimmed. 

Let me once more have aunt's old-fashioned pie. 

And then I'll be content to curl up and die.

The ^^Massachusetts^^ Tales* 

(The Prorogue to these Tales was Published in the 1902 "Index.") 

Naugfhty-three's Tale. 

Once as old stories tell ye, 

There was a class named Naughty-three, 

At college she was fasteste and beste, 

And in her time she whipped all the reste, 

More scrappy was there none under the sonne. 

Full many a fight and scrape had she begune ; 

For with her spirit and her brave meune. 

She made Naughtj'-two to look very grenne. 

That when to Belchertown they gaily wende, 

There rooms were stacked from end to eude, 

And then to Prex with his ominous grinne, 

This younger class did lie like sinne, 

But all escaped sentence severe. 

There came to college then a man so queer, 

Whose whiskers gave to him the name of Zeke, 

Lean and lank was he with monstrous beak. 

This class which since has won such great renown, 

Took him at once to be a clever clown, 

And in his room they all did gather rounde, 

And make him tell of stories so profounde, 

While in his shoes they put of ink so red, 

And on the floor they made him go to bed ; 

Soon then the one who poured the crimson splendor, 

Two dollars and a half did make amende 

But all these things I might as well forbear. 

And tell ye of that flag pole high in air; 

From out a shed a barrel soon was brought 

And placed high way up there on the top ; 

How each after other then did stop and look. 

And blame the whole goll dern thing on Joe Cook. 

This class of which I make mention. 
To banquets turned their whole attention. 
So down to Springfield went they with full pride. 
Nor never from the Sophomores did they hide, 
But to the Cooley House the}' then did hie, 


Wheu they liatl seen the ballet girls so flye. 
Full hours three they ate and jested well, 
And, uever once a thought of woe did tell. 
But back to Amherst in the morning came, 
While not a man was feeling just the same. 
And then to the reception went this class, 
Where much of ice-cream did they pinch at last; 
And out upon the campus spread the clothes, 
So thus at last their Freshmen year did close. 

And wheu again this class came in the Falle, 
Fresh Naughtj-four was not in it at all, 
For when upon the campus they did meet. 
They found Naught-three had never yet been beate. 
Upon the walke the Freshmen then were taught, 
That they upon the bordering grass must walk ; 
While Doc aud Jones to 'crease the junkshop store. 
Did pick up pens, pencils, buttons galore. 
Forthwiih this class went to a noted place, 
And borrowed grapes to feed their smiling face. 
While others to a cider mill did hie. 
So quickly lock and windows open prye. 
And soon from out a cask the wine did sip. 
And homeward heavy laden did they skip. 
Melons they too did bring into the line. 
The Freshmen, they did kindly take the rind. 

In October the greatest of all scraps. 
Happened north of the college a few laps. 
The Freshmen, then the class of Naughty-four, 
Did start to practice on their rope once more; 
And then this wondrous class of Naughty-three 
Did see another chance for gallantrye. 
So down the hill they charged pell-melle, 
And on ihe Freshmen and their rope they felle. 
A fight there was, no mortal e'er saw such, 
-And ever)' Freshmen there was hurt so much, 
That Cooley to their rescue quickly sped. 
Took home the rope and hid it 'neath his bed. 
But now this class, they next did fool his spouse, 
The rope they took from out his lowly house : 
And on that day was heard he to confesse, 
"Its up to me to buy a rope, I guesse," 
To Hampton then to buy a rope did go, 
And came to see the Freshmen lose it so. 

One morning Babby kick'd up a rumpus. 
For all his chairs were strewn on the campus. 
But West, fearing the loss of his good jobe, 
Did take them back and so the fun did robe. 
Now on the gridiron they did contende. 
As through the Freshmen's lines their men did sende, 


And when they had scored their fifteen points, 

The Freshmen left the field their wounds to annoint. 

As was in olden times the custoiiie, 
This class had planned a celebrationne, 
vSo down they quickly sat for to reflect, 
Of many things wi h which they might connect, 
And then from out Bill Brooks's scientific pens. 
They extracted four fat fine high grade hens. 
Full many thing this noble class did eate, 
And drink of cider, hard and swete. 
Their banquet room did look upon inspection, 
Like to an "Index" sheet without correction. 

To Deerfield then to supper they did wende. 
And of their stock of cash did niuche spende ; 
When in the meeting they did try to enter, 
Back to the hotel were they soone sente, 
When all had ate and drunk their bell}' fuUe, 
With man}- a song and yell did homeward puUe ; 
Full many a man could not next day y-tell, 
What after supper that night had befell. 

One night to band rehearsal came old Babb, 
And left his horse outside the vet'nary lab., 
The horse did on his halter pull most harde 
And end at last up in Prof. Cooley's yarde. 

One night Prof. Babson's chairs did all take wing, 
And out on the Isle were seen next morning; 
While on the bank the engineers did surmyse. 
And many plans for rescue did devyse, 
But only when the water was withdrawn, 
The chairs from off the island then were borne. 

Once more responding to the battle call. 
They licked the bloody Freshmen at base-ball. 
Commencement came to cut our story shorte, 
And back to their respective homes they gotte, 
When back as upper classmen they did came, 
They found the college still was just the same. 
But the faculty had set such a pace. 
That nothing but the stoutest hearts could face. 
At study now this class has just begunne. 
And so, 'twill last until its course is runne. 


An Ordinary Recitation, 

Professor Brooks. " Mr. Peebles, what have you to say on the subject 
assigned you?" 

Peebles. "At first I was at a loss at the unseemly preponderance of the 
homogeneous conglomeration, which geologically speaking, presented itself 
in a most incomprehensible aspect. But after listening to your most edifying 
and lugubrious expostulation upon the formation of this particular section of 
terra firma, it instantaneously became plainly evident to my intricate frame of 

Thinking to enlighten my hungry intellect, I excavated to some consid- 
erable depth, making, in fact, a depression of some three hundred milli- 
meters. I found this irregular configuration and stratification of the particles 
to run continuously downward as far as I had exhuded the debris, which, 
when taken in combination with the extraordinary fact, that fossil-like struc- 
tures indicating the presence oi phylum echhiodernatas were in evidence, proves 
beyond the bane of doubtfulness that this soil was formed during the Tri-Asic 
or Stonacious Age. 

North College* 

In North College on one corner is a wrecked and wretched room, 

I am going to tell the story of its life and then its doom. 

Two students, Poc and Gerry had made this place their home ; 

While through adjoining premises these two were wont to roam. 

The only things that here were safe were those that were nailed down ; 

Annexation was their hobby and had given them renown. 

Back to this room now we'll wander, gaze upon its floor and wall ; 

There we have a perfect junk-shop, every detail, large and small. 

In the spring-time they got thoughtful, and from but this room they went ; 

Down one story out from glory to a room of peace were bent. 

Gerry now aloue is with us. Doc the scrapper of our class, he has gone and left us weeping

Mass., July 24, 1881. He lived an uneventful life 
until September, 1886, when he first went to 
school. Without any serious mishap he reached 
the high school and captured a diploma. Being- 
much pleased with himself he stayed at the high 
school another year. Then he entered the Massachusetts Agricultural col-

town. Goshen, as everyone knows, is a little vil- 
lage in Western Massachusetts, which has a popu- 
lation of three hundred and three whites, and 
thirteen Polanders, when George is at home. At 
an early age Mr. Barrus determined to study for 
the ministry. He entered the Sanderson Academy at Ashfield and received a 
first-class moral training. He changed his mind about the ministry business 
and entered " Massachusetts " with the class of 1903. Mr. Barrus belongs to 
the D. G. K. fraternity; played on the class baseball and football teams ; was 
captain of the rope pull team ; and is now class-captain and business manager 
of the 1903 Index. 


" In combat, his the vigorous arm of youth." 


South Boston was the birthplace of Howard 
Chandler Bowen, and the time of his birth March 
26, 1882. When a little over a year old he 
emerged and started life in Needham, Mass. Most 
of his early life was spent in playing "Indian" 
in the woods along the river Charles. 

On his sixteenth birthday his grandfather made him a present of a horse, 
which Howard immediately mounted and started for Rutland, Mass., to which 
place his folk, by a strange coincident had moved that very day. Mr. Bowen 
was graduated from the Rutland High -school in '99 and entered college the 
succeeding fall. He has become noted for his surgical operations and will 
answer to the name " Doc." He pla\-ed on the class football and baseball 
team, and is a member of the O. T. V. fraternity. 

' A nd what is all this noise ? ' 


This gentleman comes from the city of Cam- 
bridge, where he was born. The date of his birth 
was May 15, 1883. The first few years of his life 
were spent in oblivion; the next few in chasing 
round tr}'ing to find a school that would hold 
him. He finally entered the Carleton Prepara- 
tory School, learned all that he could learn, received his diploma and entered 
" Massachusetts." Here he has made his M by playing on the varsity football 
team. He pla^'ed on the class football team, the baseball team, of which he 
was captain the second year; is a Q. T. V. fraternity man; and assistant 
business manager of the 1903 Index and of the Football Association.

Clayton, Mass. He layed the foundation of his 

education in a little district school, under the 

instruction of an old-fashioned " Schoolmarm "

assassination of President Garfield. When about 
6 years old he moved to Roslindale, a pretty 
little village about five miles west by south-south- 
east from the State House, Boston. He attended 
the "Charles Sumner" school, and later the Eng- 
lish High, in which he took a post-graduate course. While here he played on 
the baseball and football teams and gained that experience which has made 
him such an excellent coach. Mr. Halligan entered the Sophomore class of 
"Massachusetts" in the Fall of '00. He plays on the college football and 
baseball teams; the class basket ball team; belongs to the D. G. K. fra-

Burmingham, Ala. Like many other Alabama 
boys he began young. His early life was spent 
in close attendance at the district school which 
held a three njonths session every two years. At 
the age of 20 Mr. Hood entered Talladega col- 
lege. He was graduated from the Normal course in '99 and immediately 
entered the Massachusetts Agriculturaf college, and has not had a sound 
night's sleep since, his dreams always being troubled by a ghost of mathe- 
matics in a //27.s/(r-«/ form. Mr. Hood plaj'ed on the class football team and 
is one of the most patriotic men in college.

The Work of the Fraternity Conference. 

The Fraternity Conference was organized earh' in the year '99 for the 
purpose of maintaining amiable relations between the fraternities, and in order 
to promote the social life at college. 

About the first real work done by the conference was to establish a rule 
that no freshman could be pledged to join any fraternity before the opening 
day of the winter term; and that any man who should enter college after that 
day should not be pledged for at least one month after he had become enrolled. 
Later, to meet the requirements made necessary by the change from terms to 
semesters, this rule was changed to read " the first day of college after the 
Christmas recess," instead of "the opening day of the winter term." 

This rule has now been in force for over two years and has proved very 
satisfactory. The interval which must elapse between the time a man comes 
to college and the time in which he is eligible to join a fraternity gives the 
man a chance to judge the characters of the several fraternities and to choose 

the one most suited to his taste; while on the other side it gives the members 
of the fraternities a chance to judge the men and pick out the ones they think 

The Conference has also done much along social lines. In connection 
with the Ladies of the Faculty they held three social gatherings in the chapel 
Young ladies from Amherst and surrounding towns were present and more 
enjoyable evenings could not be imagined. 

The Conference also contributed largely toward the lectures on natural 
science which were given at intervals during the winter, under the direction of 
the Natural History Society. 

The Fraternity conference is doing good work both for the individual 
fraternities and for the college in general and we hope to see it continue to 
work along the lines which it has begun. 


The subject of Co-education is far too broad and deep to be treated in the 
small space which we can give to it, so we will treat the subject only so far as 
it pertains to our Institution. 

While from the very moment of the founding of the college the problem 
of co-education has been considered, until the present time it has not been of 
radical importance for the reason that none but male students have presented 
themselves for instruction. Within the past few years the condition has been 
changed. With the class of 1903 the first real co-ed. entered the Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College, and stayed for a full year. With the class of 1905 
two more young ladies have entered college. And the questions arise, 
"What can we do with these students?" and "Is it for the best interest of the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College to adopt this policy of co-education?" 

The Faculty have answered the first question by making these students 
adhere as closely as seems expedient to the regular curriculum. To the 
second question we would answer, "No;" first, because we are not prepared 
for this class of students and it will take time and money to become prepared, 
and second, we can see no advantage to be derived from the policy. 

The principal argument in favor of co-education is that constant inter- 
course with persons of the opposite sex will tend to do away with that 
boorishness which so often shows predominately in college men. But this 
argument is ill fitted to our case, for situated as we are, in the immediate 
neighborhood of two colleges for women, the men can enjoy as much of the 
society of young ladies as they see fit. 

The best argument that can be brought to bear in favor of co-education 
in our college is simply this: That although the women are made to stick 
very closely to the curriculum as prescribed for all students, there are some 
subjects which they do not have to take. Now, if one person can be excused 
from a subject, why not another? And looking at it in this way we can see 
how co-education may indirectl}' be of benefit to the college by hastening the 
coming of the much sought after elective courses. 

But aside from this we cannot see how, with so many good colleges for 
women in the close vicinity, it would benefit a woman to attend our college or 
how it would benefit our institution to have women students. 


The Abolition of "Aggie." 

Perhaps the most important change which has taken place in the college 
during the past year has been the abolition of the unofficial name "Aggie." 
This action was not a thing done on the impulse of the moment, but done 
after much deliberation and after the lapse of considerable time. 

The first actual movement in this direction was taken in the Fall of 'gg, 
when the Athletic association changed the athletic letters from the old M. A. 
C. to the new M., signifying "Massachusetts." This movement was followed 
soon after by an attempt on the part of the Alumni Advertising Committee to 
have the name of the "Aggie Life" changed, stating as their reasons for 
such action that it was their belief that better results would follow their 
efforts in the advertising line if the name "Aggie" or "Agricultural" was not 
placed in such a prominent position. The attempt at that tmie was 

Later however, the "Aggie Life" board giving way to pressure brought 
upon it by the student body, decided to change the name of that paper, but 
on presenting the matter before the alumni found so much opposition that the 
idea was, for the time being, given up. 

The adoption of a new college yell was the next step m the onward move- 
ment. The old yells were never satisfactory because they could not produce 
the volume which a college yell should have and moreover gave predominence 
to the word "Aggie " to the exclusion of everything else. The new yell is very 
satisfactory, giving plenty of volume and putting the emphasis on the word 
•'Massachusetts." The adoption of a new college song, and the changing of 
the old songs so that "Aggie" does not appear in them has further advanced 
this movement. 

The students were not satisfied with the manner in which the "Aggie 
Life" board let the matter of changing the name drop, and so taking the mat- 
ter in their own hands voted to abolish the old unofficial title "Aggie" and cut 
it out of all printed matter with which the students had anything to do. This 
action, of course, compelled the "Aggie Life" board to change the name of 
that paper, and accordingly after much discussion the name " College Signal" 
was adopted. 

These are all important changes but they are not the end. There are 
greater changes coming, all tending toward that greatest change, nameh'; 
striking out the word "Agricultural" from the name of the college. 

The Massachusetts State College. 

"What's in a name?" There is a great deal in a name and a more unfor- 
tunate name than Massachusetts Agricultural could hardly have been chosen 
for this institution. Agricultural, farmer. If there is any one thing a city 
boy dislikes to be called it is a farmer. If there is any one thing a country 
boy dislikes to be called it is a farmer. There is a natural prejudice against 
that word and just so long as young men are prejudiced against that word, 
just so long will they decide to go to some college where that word does not 
appear in the name. 

But not only is the name "Agricultural" distasteful but it is misleading. 
By far the greatest number of people whom we meet, if they know anything 
about the college at all, firmly believe' that most of every student's time is 
taken up with actual farm work such as planting, hoeing and milking, and 
it is useless to tell them differently. 

The argument has been brought forward time and time again that the 
college was established for the benefit of the agricultural classes, and that 
those who do not wish that sort of an education can go elsewhere. But sup- 
pose that all those who -do not wish to take agriculture should go elsewhere, 
where would the college be? All the students could be accommodated in the 
recitation room in the barn. 

No, the agricultural class has had forty years in which to show their 
appreciation of the advantages of a good agricultural college and they have 
not done so. And it is now time that some other policy should be pursued. 

We have often heard the statement that since the college was founded for 
the purpose of promoting agriculture, any change in the name would result in 
a very serious financial loss. Now we do not see how this would follow. Other 
colleges whose names do not in any way pertain to agriculture are receiving 

just as much money from the United States government as is the "Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural College," and changing the name would, we believe, have 
the effect of bringing in larger appropriations from the State legislature. This 
view is in accordance with statements made by Senator Gardner, chairman of 
the State Military committee, in an address before the college battalion, at 
which time Mr. Gardner expressed the same ideas as may be found in the 
following extract from the letter written to the editor upon this subject. 

" I am in favor of changing the name of the college from Massachusetts 
Agricultural College to Massachusetts State College in order that it may be 
more clearly brought home to the people of this state that they are support- 
ing an institution of learning of which they may well be proud. 

In the western part of Massachusetts the work and aims of the college are 
doubtless thoroughly well-known and understood, but I venture to say that in 
Essex county, where I live, not one man in ten is aware of the fact that the 
state supports any institution of learning except the Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology. Of those few who are aware of the existence of a college in 
Amherst, supported by the state, the greater number go little further than 
surmising in a vague sort of a way that somewhere or other in the western 
counties there is a sort of agricultural experiment station where young men are 
taught newfangled and comparatively useless methods of ploughing and ferti- 
lizing. I am ashamed to say that my own view of the scope of your institu- 
tion was but little broader until my visit last year. 

Where I had expected to find a large farm run at an equally large loss, I 
found instead a splendidly equipped college for young men, where among 
other branches, scientific agriculture is taught and, indeed constitutes a gen- 
erous part of the curriculum. I found an institution of learning of the highest 
class where young men could befitted for meeting the problems of this world 
in any field. 

As you may probably remember, the Committee of the Legislature that 
visited Amherst was a large one, and I took special pains to inquire of such of 
my colleagues as had not made a previous visit just what their knowledge of 
the place was before arrival. In almost every case the senators and rep- 
resentatives from the eastern part of Massachusetts had little more than the 
knowledge which had come to them from voting for your annual appropria- 

I found that while the eastern representatives felt that a change of name 
would greatly enhance the standing of the college in the eyes of their respec- 
tive constituencies, the western members, on the other hand, failed to take 
this view of the matter. 

I, for one, should long ago have taken a livelier interest in your institu- 
tion if I had realized that it was a state college," a real institution of learning. 

I certainly should have realized this fact had the name been Massachusetts 
State College instead of Massachusetts Agricultural College. 

I am well aware that many people hold to the opinion that it makes no 
appreciable difference whether you call a college by one name or another. 
Personally, I do not subscribe to this view. Unless there is some good reason 
for retaining the present name, I submit that the fact alone that it is distaste- 
ful to the students should be conclusive reason for a change. 

It may be that in many cases vanity alone influences a student's view 
of this matter ; but, of course, this is far from being the case with the bulk of 
the student body. Even if the objection of every student were based on 
vanity alone I should feel, nevertheless, that the name ought to be changed 
unless good reason could be shown to the contrary. We know that vanity is a 
human attribute and that wounded vanity is a source of trouble and loss of 
strength in a college, as in all other human institutions. 

I could learn of no cause for the reluctance to abandon the present name 
beyond the natural conservatism which exists among your alumni and 

I am reminded in closing that the opponents of my views advance as an 
argument against my position that the name " Massachusetts " already appears 
in the title of the college. That is very true as far as official documents are 
concerned ; but who ever hears the title used in ordinary conversation ? For 
years the public has been used to hearing of the students of the " Amherst 
Agricultural College," a clumsy expression, which has almost inevitably 
degenerated into " Amherst Aggies." If however the name were changed to 
"Massachusetts State College," the public, undoubtedly, would speak of the 
institution as the " State College" a result which has developed in the case of 
the college of the State of Maine. 

Unless arguments can be brought forward which hitherto have escaped 
me, the fact that thepresent name is a source of irritation to the whole student 
body, should to my mind be sufficient to render a change imperative." 

These are the opinions of Senator Gardner and they are also the opinion 
of this editorial board. We believe that, providing the name of our college 
were changed no bad effects would result from a financial point of view ; 
that all dissatisfaction and uneasiness among the student body would be done 
away with ; and that many new and desirable men would enter college. 



The past year in athletics at the Massachusetts Agricultural college has 
been, in the main, very successful. But two teams, however, were put in the 

No college basket-ball team was organized as the work of that team in 
the past has not been successful, not because the teams lacked in proficiency' 
but because it has been impossible with the limited money at their disposal to 
schedule games with, other than local Y. M. C. A. and town teams. And 
winning these games brings no real credit to the college. There was, how- 
ever no lack of enthusiastic basket-ball players and a series of inter-class 
games was placed. These games proved very interesting and helped more 
than a little to keep the athletic men in training throughout the winter. 

Early in the spring it was decided not to place a track team in the field, 
as it was thought that with our limited number of men, and quickly exhausted 
supply of money, to try and run a track team and baseball team at the 
same time, would result disastrously to both. 

The baseball season opened early in March with practice at the bat and 
throwing. This work was not altogether satisfactory however as it had to be 
done in the Drill Hall and the light was insufficient, being so bad that on 
cloudy days it became impossible to see a thrown ball and practice could not 
be held. 

As early as the weather would permit practice was begun out doors. 
Three practice games were played with Amherst before beginning the regular 
schedule. A winning game was played until near the end of the season when 
the team slumped and lost three games in succession. 

The football season was a remarkable one. Starting in to practice two 
weeks later than usual and having had the services of a coach for only two 
weeks, the team won from Holy Cross, our stumbling block for years, Wesleyan, 
the Triangular league champions, the Springfield Training school, Amherst and 
Tufts. Truly a remarkable record. 

The game with Amherst is worthy of special notice. Our team h^N'ing 
had the services of a coach but two weeks went down onto that field and won 
the cleanest, prettiest game of football that could be imagined. The Amherst 
team was heavier than our own, had the advantage of playing on home 
grounds, and for two weeks had been holding secret practice under the direc- 
tion of three coaches. This game showed what our team could do and what 
they ought to do. With the loss of but three men next year, two of whom 
have played most of the season on the sidelines, the prospects of a strong- 
team next season are very bright. 

The Military Department. 

One of the most important features of our college is the military depart- 
ment and more real good is being derived from this part of our exercises than 
from an)' other. The exercise obtained while on drill is the only physical 
exercise which many of us get, and the only physical culture which most of us 
derive while in college. 

Taking the students as they first come and watching them day by day, 
great improvement can be noticed in their set-up, general appearance, and in 
their neatness of person. Nothing ser\-es so much to keep the appearance of 
each man, and the condition of his rooms in good shape as the discipline 
exacted by the military instructor. 

Captain J. A. Anderson is to be highly commended for his zeal and the 
manner in which he has taken hold and actuall)' built up a battalion out of a 
batch of raw recruits. There is however one change we would like to see 

Now while we do not wish to criticise the military department in anv but 
a kindh' way, we cannot forbear this opportunity for expressing our opinion in 
the manner in which promotions are made. 

Already we ha\'e one or two instances in which underclass men ha\'e been 
raised to positions in fulfilling the duties of which they are obliged to com- 
mand upperclass men. We do not think that such conditions should exist 
and do not belie\'e that it is for the best interest of the battalion that they 
should be fostered. 

It is not pleasant for an upperclass man to be ordered b}' a lowerclass 
■ man, and it is anything but pleasant for an underclass man to be obliged to 
give orders to a junior or a senior. By all the laws of college tradition, upper- 
class men should be honored and respected b)' the members of the lower 
classes, and we maintain that this respect does not and cannot exist, while 
lowerclass men are placed in positions of command.' The military department 
of this college was founded for the purpose of instruction in drill and military 
science. Now if this instruction is to be complete it is not only necessary that 
the cadet should be taught the routine of marching and handling a gun, but he 
should also be taught how to perform the duties of an officer, and the best way 
in which this can be done is of course, by giving him practical experience. 

This can be done by choosing the officers from the senior and junior 
classes, always selecting the commissioned officers from the senior class. This 
plan, if strictly followed out, would, we believe prove of benefit to every man 
in college, and do awa)' with much of the spirit of dissatisfaction which is now 
being shown toward the department. 

Captain Anderson has been working hard to get the necessary authority, 
and equipage for an annual encampment. The custom is being practised with 
great success in other similar institutions, and proves to be of great advantage 
as more can be learned in one week of actual experience in the field than in 
years of theoretical training. The encampment would be eagerly looked for- 
ward to by the students; it would help to bring the college before the eyes of 
the public, and would create that much to be desired quality of enthusiasm 
among the cadets. 


The Alumni. 

Does an alumnus of a college owe any duty to his Alma Mater? If so 
what is that dut}^ These are important questions which must be decided to a 
great extent by each individual alumnus. That an alumnus owes a dut\' to 
his Alma Mater goes without saying. He owes a duty to her in the same way 
as he does to his natural mother. 

Have the alumni of the Massachusetts Agricultural College fulfilled their 
obligations to their college as they should have done? We think that until 
very recently they have not. But whatever may have been the condition 
that is past and gone, a new life has been awakened in their bosoms and they 
are now actively engaged in trying to outstrip one another in the work they 
can do for the college. 

A year ago at the Annual Alumni Banquet, the subject of the growth, or 
rather the lack of growth of the college was discussed x-erj^ lively. As a re- 
sult a committee was appointed to be known as the Alumni Advertising Com- 
mittee. And it was specifically stated that it was the duty of this committee 
to advertise the college in every practicable way, for the purpose of getting 
more students; the expenses of advertising to be borne by the Alumni. 

This committee went to work and finally chose the "Aggie Life," as the 
best medium for their work. Two large, special editions containing accounts 
of the various departments, pictures of the college grounds, buildings — inside 
and out — football team, etc., were published. These issues were distributed 
over the entire state, a copy being sent to every male member of the graduat- 
ing class in all the larger high and preparatory schools and several copies to 
the principals of the smaller schools throughout the state. The effect of this 
effort was beyond all expectation. Almost at once letters of inquiry began 
pouring into the office of the committee, the whole resulting in the entrance 
this year of a very large Freshmen class. 

In the middle of the football season this fall, it was found that the team 
could not hope to cope successfully with their opponents without the training 
to be obtained from a coach; the executive committee of the Athletic Associ- 
ation took the matter in hand, and sent out circulars to about one hundred of 
the Alumni, stating the circumstances and asking for their support. The re- 
turns from this request were immediate and generous. A coach was secured 
for the remainder of the season, and money enough has been contributed to 
ensure the statement that next year we shall have a coach all season. 

All this has been done through the generosity of the Alumni. Much 
credit is due the Alumni Advertising Committee and to all those who have 
aided in bringing about this desired end.

We'll fret and frown and swear uo more ; 
But to the readers' pleasure leave, 
Such work as we have you to give. 

And if, perchance, a roast you find, 
We only hope you will not mind ; 
And nothing rash that you will do. 
For we may yet be roasted too. 

So when you look upon our work, 
You must not think that we did shirk ; 
But give us what credit we've won, 
From this our book, now fin'Ily done.

Dr, Paige : " The iiiau with a ciuge." 

Massachusetts Agricultural College* 

A rare chance to obtain a liberal and thoroughl_v practical education. 
The cost has been reduced to a minimum Tuition is free to citizens of the 
United States. An opportunity is offered to pay a portion of expenses by 

Three courses of Study are offered: an eleven iveeks' practical course in 
agriculture and kindred sciences; a /6)?^rj)/^ars' ("i?^;'^^ leading to the degree of 
Bachehor of Science; and a. graduate course leading to the degrees of IVIaster of 
Science and Doctor of Philosophy. 

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

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

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

3. Chemistry. Practice work in the laboratories, qualitative and quantita- 
tive analysis, inorganic and organic, adapted to special needs. Geolog\'. 

4. Zoology, entomology, the preservation of plants from destructixe in- 
sects, human anatomj', physiology, and hj'giene. 

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

6. Mathematics and physics, including practical work in surveying and 
roadmaking. Meteorology in its relation to agriculture. P^iectrical en- 
gineering with problems, and practical work with instruments. Civil en- 
gineering. Astronomy. 

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

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

g. Political Science. The course provides for instruction in political 
economy, that a knowledge may be gained of those established laws of the 
business world which control the market, finance, and the production and dis- 
tribution of wealth. Especial attention is given to the economies of agri- 
culture. Science of government is studied, that the duties and privileges of 
the citizen may be understood. 

Advantages. Facilities for illustration include a working library of more 
than 20,000 volumes, properly classified and catalogued; the State collection 
of birds, insects, reptiles, and rocks of Massachusetts, with many additions; 
the Knowlton herbarium of 10,000 species of named botanical specimens; the 
1,500 species and varieties of plants and types of the vegetable kingdom, cul- 
tivated in the Durfee plant-house; the large collections of Amherst College 
within easy access; a farm of about 400 acres, divided between the agricul- 
tural, horticural, and experimental departments, embracing every variety of 
soil, offering splendid opportunities for observing the application of science 
to the problems of agriculture. 

Worthy of especial mention are the laboratories for practical work in 
chemistry, in zoology, and in botany, well equipped with essential apparatus. 
The Durfee plant-house has been recently rebuilt and greatly enlarged, and a 
new tool-house and workshop provided for the horticultural department. 
For the agricultural department, ^ model bam furnishes the best facilities for 
storage of crops, care of horses, cattle, sheep and swine, and management of 
the dairy; it includes also a lecture-room for instruction* For the veterinary 
department a new and fully equipped laboratory and stable have been pro- 
vided, where bacteriology and the diseases of animals are studied. 

Electives. Out of seventeen studies provided for the Senior Class, fifteen 
are elective, grouped in eleven separate courses. 

Expenses. Board in clubs is about $2.50 per week, and in families, S3. 00 
to S5.00; room rent, S12.OO to ^24.00 per semester; fuel, $7.00 to 813.00 per 
year; washing, 40 to 50 cents per dozen; military suit, ^15. 75; books at whole- 
sale prices; furniture, second-hand or new, for sale in town. 

Certificates from approved High Schools admit students without exami- 

Requisites for admission to the several courses and other information may 
be learned from the catalogue, to be obtained by application to the President.
