E offer this, the record of a year 
To sympathizing friends, and all who hold, 
With us, our Alma Mater's name and fame 
In reverence. 

And with this tale of victories and defeats. 
Mere happenings even that have marked some step 
Ahead or backward, now with all our hearts 
We greet thee. 


The Alumni of the Massachusetts Agricultural College 

^ ^ ^ ^ 

To attempt to give an accurate account of the work of the 
alumni and the various professions and vocations in which 
they are engaged, would require much time and far greater 
space than we can take in this book ; but the extent and 
scope of their work can, perhaps, be shown to some extent by grouping 
them in classes and mentioning some of the leaders in each class. 

In professional life, in the practice of law, some of our alumni have 
achieved great prominence ; for instance, James H. Webb, '73, of New 
Haven, is a man of great influence in the state of Connecticut and one 
who, on the Constitutional Convention of last year, had, perhaps, greater 
influence than any other. He is not only a noted attorney, but an 
instructor of Law at Yale Law School. Lemuel Holmes, '72, of New 
Bedford, is Judge of the Massachusetts Supreme Court and Judge 
Lyman, of Northampton, Mass., is our instructor in Rural Law at the 
College, as well as judge. A. AV. Dickinson, '74, who died a few years 
since was well known in the courts of New Jersey. 

Among our alumni prominent in the medical profession, are Dr. 
Joseph E. Root, '76, of Hartford, Conn., who is a man noted as a 
physician, surgeon, and specialist in nose and throat troubles, many 
persons coming long distances for treatment in his specialty. He is 
Secretary of the Hartford Medical Association and also a member of the 
Board of Health, has written several books, and holds a high social 
position. Dr. Joseph N. Hall '78, Denver Col., is a noted specialist 
in heart troubles and Professor of Materia Medica and Therapeutics in 
the University of Colorado. Dr. John A. Cutter, of New York City, 
also deserves mention. 


As professors and instructors, we have such men as Prof. Washburn, 
'78, formerly President of the Rhode Island Agricultural College ; Prof. 
Charles S. Phelps, formerly at Storrs, Conn., who is widely known 
throughout the state, especially among grangers; Prof. Horace E. 
Stockbridge, '7S, Professor of Agriculture in Florida; David P. Tenhal- 
low, '73, Professor of Botany and Vegetable Pathology at McGill 
University in 'Montreal ; Green, '79, Professor of Horticulture in the 
University of Minnesota; Chapin, '81, Professor of Biology in an Ohio 
University; Taft,'82, Professor in a college in Michigan, and Stone, '82, 
now President of Purdue University. 

Among our more recent graduates, E. A. White, '95, at the Con- 
necticut Agricultural College ; and R. D. Hemenway, '95, Director of 
the School of Horticulture, of Hartford, Conn., Avhich, according to the 
officials at Washington, has the largest and most systematically con- 
ducted system of school gardens in the United States, may be mentioned, 
and there are to be added to this list the names of Wellington, '73 ; 
Brooks, '75 ; Paige, '82 ; Stone, 'S6 ; Cooley, '88 ; Smith, '94 and Howard, 
'94, who are all now members of the Faculty of their Alma Mater. 

In veterinary science, we have such men as Frederick M. Osgood, 
'78, Professor and Surgeon at Harvard Veterinary School, and Charles 
H. Higgins, '94, Pathologist to the Dominion of Canada. 

In entomology, Charles P. Lounsbury, '94, who is Government 
Entomologist at the Cape of Good Hope, Africa; A. H. Kirkland, 
'94, Entomologist of the Bowker Fertilizer Co. ; Burges, '95, Assistant 
State Entomologist in Illinois; Harold Frost, '95, who is widely known 
as an expert in Entomology and tree pruning, and many others. 

In practical life, G. A. Parker, '7('), Superintendent of Keney Park, 
Hartford, Conn., stands preeminently above all others in the United 
States as landscape gardener and park superintendent. He has not only 
the- best collection of park reports in the country, but has what is 
unquestionably the most extensive and best arranged special library of 
this class in the world. He constantly receives letters from all over the 


world and is consulted on subjects in his line by the leading specialists 
all over the United States and Canada. He is State Park Commis- 
sioner and holds several positions in the American Park and Outdoor 
Art Association, as well as in other associations for the advancement of 
park work. Dr. Edward W. Allen, '85, Vice-Director of the Office of 
Experiment Stations, Washington, D. C, is one of our alumni who is well 
known all over the United States, at least among experiment station 
workers; Charles S. Plum, '82, Director of the experiment station of 
Purdue University; Wheeler, '87, Director of the Rhode Island Experi- 
ment Station; Hills, '81, Director of the Vermont Experiment Station; 
Lindsey, '83, Chemist at the Hatch Station at Amherst and others. 
William H. Bowker, '71, President of the Bowker Fertilizer Company, 
has revolutionized the fertilizer business. He is known the world over. 

Among our prominent journalists, Herbert Myrick, '82, stands at 
the head as an editor of agricultural papers and magazines. He is also 
a publisher and author. Daniel G. Hitchcock is editor and proprietor 
of the Warren Herald. 

Among the prominent florists, are E. D. Shaw, '72, and W. R. 
Pierson, '01, Cromwell, Conn., who with his father has the largest floral 
establishment in New England. 

We have no space even to mention the names of the successful civil 
engineers, chemists, druggists, mechanics, electricians, dentists, teachers 
and superintendents, traveling men, ministers, business men, manu- 
facturers, seedmen, farmers and market gardeners, stock raisers, 
creamery managers, gardeners, horticulturalists, landscape architects 
and gardeners, book keepers and farm superintendents. Even a brief 
account of them all would fill a volume. In fact, the scope of the work 
that is being done by our alumni is equal to that of any other college, 
even though older, and each alumnus who has gone out from the college 
is, in his sphere, to a greater or less extent, a center and an advertise- 
ment for the Massachusetts Agricultural College. This fact among our 
alumni can be shown no better than by the statement that, out of thir- 


teen or lourteen hundred alumni and former students, there has but 
about one really turned out badly. Certainly few institutions in the 
country have as enviable a record. Students and alumni alike, each of 
us has reason to feel proud of the showing which our alumni are mak- 
ing in the world. The alumni of an institution and their work must 
show to the world the value of that institution. The positions that our 
menareholdin'o and their influence in nearly every state in the country, 
in our possessions and in Mexico, Brazil, India, Turkey, and japan 
should be a means of inspiring undergraduates and of helping them to 
appreciate the broad educational advantages at the college. The alumni 
are showing to the public that the old idea, which some had, that an agri- 
cultural college taught one simply how to hoe, plow and rake, is certainly 
a mistaken one, and that men i-eceive a broad fundamental knowledge 
which is a foundation upon which they can build many different kinds 
of employment. With a broad and substantial foundation, there is little 
danger of being wrecked by the severest cyclone, although some injury 
may be done. No one realizes, better than the alumni themselves, the 
value of the fundamental training at their Alma Mater; and no body of 
alumni of any institution in the world, of the size and age of our institu- 
tion, is more loyal than the graduates of the Massachusetts Agricultural

Editor's Note 
In regard to the preceding it is only fair t(5 state that the editor 
was able to give Mr. Hemenway a very short lime in which to complete 
the article. In that time — it was only a week, and Mr. Hemenway was 
more than usually confined by his own work — it was of course impossible 
for him to get together all the data that he should have had. If theie- 
fore, the names of men in some particular locality seem to occupy 


more space than those of some others perhaps as worthy of mention, it 
should be remembered that the writer had no notes to which he could 
refer and very naturally would mention those with whose names he was 
most familiar. As Mr. Hemenway himself says in a letter to the 
editor: — " To do justice on an article of that kind, I ought to have spent 
a month in collecting data which should be absolutely correct, so that 
none of the leaders, at least, would be omitted."

Senior Class History 

* * * 

THE class of 1903 has passed through all the troubles and 
trials, defeats and victories, sorrows and joys of the first 

three years of college life and is now well launched upon its 

last and Senior year. 
Of the earlier years we will say nothing. Everybody knows our 
histor}' as Freshmen and Sophomores. They know how. as Freshmen, 
we won the campus rush, and raided the vineyard, the watermelon 
patches and the cider mill ; and how as Sophomores we planned and 
fought for, and pinched the Freshmen's rope. They know of a thousand 
things that go to make up the history of the first two years of a class in 

Returning to college for our Junior year we settled down to hard 
work and, save for two or three small breaks, remained at it for the entire 
year. The first of these breaks was our Junior class supper tendered us 
by the class of 1905. This was held in the United States Hotel, Boston, 
and was remarkable not only for the good supper and grand good time, 
but for the fact that every man in the class was present. The next 
break to the monotony of a year of study came on the day we visited the 
Springfield Brewery and the pulp and paper mills at Holyoke and Mt. 
Tom Station. And so passed the year. 

With the summer each man followed his own path. "Pa" staid in 
Amherst and ran the college. ' ' Steve " staid also and made the weather, 
and a mighty poor job he made of it too. Four of our classmates, who 
for some time past had been under the eyes of the International Medical 
Missionary Association, were taken in hand by that society and sent to 
Goshen and there received their first instructions as missionaries ; and, 


if rumors are to be depended upon, next year they are to go to the 
Philippines as medical missionaries, providing the association sticks to 
its agreement and furnishes the four with a quartet of young ladies for 
wives and helpers. Two of the class spent the summer in putting New 
York City on the " bum," while Philly, the cow-puncher, spent a couple 
of weeks with Prof. Lull hunting for fossils in the Bad Lands of 
Wyoming. ■" Benny " spent the summer chasing bugs and it is reported 
that he caught one. William ' ' Waldorf " visited Washington, D. C. , and 
reports the President and Congress as doing well. And there were 
others of the class doing other things. 

The opening of the fall semester finds us all in our places and the 
class increased by the addition of three valuable men from Connecticut 
State College, Messrs. Lamson, Osman and Harvey, making a total of 
twenty-five men in the class. 

We have begun our Senior 3'ear in good shape. Not a man in the 
class has a single condition; as Professor Miles said, " A remarkable 
record for this class or any Senior class." Yes, ours has been a remark- 
able record from the start to the present time. Let us unite in keeping

Junior Class History 

* *> * 

THE time has passed when we should be known as " Satan's 
own " and the "haughty, naughty, sporty, naughty-four." 
We are now a class upon whose shoulders the dignity of 
upper classmen for the first time begins to settle. No longer 
is it ours to receive instructions from our guardians, but to take beneath 
our sheltering wings the greenest, not the freshest, class in college, and 
by our example and precepts, attempt to remodel its members until they 
too become worthy to enter the " Kingdom of Dignity." 

But we were not always thus. We, likewise, have had the pleasure 
of climbing goal posts, of singing enchanting songs and dancing the 
high-ki-ki-ki. To say the least, those nightly entertainments were 
decidedly varied. Yet- this period of servitude lasted for but one short 
year. As Sophomores, we found an ungainly class (the maidens ex- 
cepted) to subdue. They out-numbered us three to one, and yet were we 
not disheartened in this sore extremity. Much to our disappointment 
Prexy abolished the rush, but if hazing were not against the rules we 
might relate how, with the aid of the vaulting pole, Percy was rudely 
pulled from his bed ; how Tinkham caught the little pigs for our amuse- 
ment and came near delivering his speech in the Hash House. Were 
we sure that none of the faculty would read this, we might also explain 
why the freshmen went into the pond in the " ratio of eight to two," and 
how it happened that Munson took his sitz bath, although poor D. 
Nelson flitted about the banks in vain attempt to save him. But we 
must not mention such as these ; the memory of them alone is ours. 

However, our ingenuity was soon called into play to discover a rope 
with which to practice for the "pull." That didn't bother us ; we had 
men who knew just inhere and how to get it, just as we have had men 
who knew how to find other ropes not mentioned. Although we lost 
the rope Prof. Cooley kindly bought us in our freshman year, and 
although the team now against us was 20 per cent heavier than ours, we 


were determined to win the '04-'05 contest, and win it we did! But let 
it be known that we chopped up the Freshies' practice rope first. 
Unlike the class of '71, we did not water the elms in front of South 
College with our cider, but, being very generous, gave to all who came. 
We then — well, we just filled ourselves, and had a jolly good time 
cutting up the finest rope seen on the campus for many a year. 

In football we claim no great victory. As is known we lost to the 
Sophomores in our Freshman year. Experience counts everything in a 
game and it was against experienced men that we had to play again in 
our Sophomore year. So, notwithstanding Mike's well earned touch- 
down, an unkind " Fate" had willed it that neither side should win, and 
the game closed with the score a tie. In baseball, we lost twice, 
although both times the game was so closely contested that it was 
necessary to play more than nine innings. 

It is in basket-ball that we glory. The Sophomores could not down 
us in our Freshman year and thus we won the privilege of smoking our 
pipes in peace. As Sophomores, we won from the famous team of '02, 
which had held the supremacy for nearly four seasons. We won also 
from the Freshmen, who had previously beaten the Juniors, and thus 
ours became the champion team of the college. It seems ver}^ fitting 
that our protectors should leave, as they passed the college portals, this 
legacy to console us. 

Unlike the banquets of some classes, ours have been great successes. 
Wishing to see more of the world and at the same time visit an historical 
spot, we took a straw ride last winter to that " City of Visions" — South 
Deerfield, and became amusingly happy as we progressed with our 
banquet. Even the " Deacon " partook in a social way. We need not 
mention the toasts; we never again expect to hear any so strikingly 
original and witty. Our greatest success in the banquet line, however, 
is the way in which we broke up the Freshman banquet in Springfield. 
As they were peacefully enjoying their feast, in rushed some noughty- 
fourites, and in the contest that followed several dishes were broken. 
This according to college traditions made their first attempt at banquet- 
ing a failure. 

It would hardly be fair to our learned professor of agriculture to 
leave unmentioned the delightful outing he gave us last spring. "A 
soil-inspecting trip," he called ii ; but with us it resulted in ■' a hand- 


waving trip." "This, boys," said he, " is a good example of glacial 
action,'' but " Chicko " did not hear; he had become infatuated with the 
pretty school-marm at the foot of the hill. Indeed, so became we all, 
and were in a similar condition every time we passed a house from the 
Avindow of which peeped a modest damsel. 

But, alas ! The joyous days are past and gone, when Griffin dis- 
covered his crucible and " Fat '' took off his foot-gear. No more shall we 
have to manipulate our compasses so that our figures shall come out 
straight. The bell in the chapel tower has tolled them into the past, 
and each new stroke is hurrying us into the future. We have returned 
from our vacation to continue with our work, and although the tradition 
would have us believe that 

" In Junior year we take our ease. 

Smoke our pipes, and sing our glees." 

we cannot help feeling that such pastimes are not for us. Already we 
are beset by that ever present goblin of the Junior class — Physics. 
Already we have grappled for the supremacy. Shall we succeed or shall 
we fall? We shall succeed! /. c. if " Billy" so decrees it. 

Our past has been hinted at. What of the future? That lies 
shrouded in darkness, only to be revealed to us as we advance step by 
step. Although our class has lost nearly half of its original members, 
we who remain are courageous and strong, ready to meet whatever 
may come. We cannot treat the last two years of our life at Massachu- 
setts as we have done the first two. We, as a class, need not be ashamed 
of ourselves. Intellectually and socially we rank well. We have noth- 
ing to fear. We will still be " a class full of dash," but let that " dash" 
be more intellectual than physical. Let us keep up our good work and 
fight to the finish. Then indeed shall we become loyal sons of Old

Sophomore Class History 

*> * * 

A YEAR has passed since we entered these college walls and it 
behooves us for the second time to offer our histor}' to the 
Index. It is a source of great pleasure to us that we are 
no more the troublesome Freshmen of a year ago, but 
rather an active and popular class of Sophomores. 

During our Freshman year we noticed a wild animal roaming about 
the campus, and one of our members undertook the difficult task of 
naming the beast. He succeeded in classifying him with Ungulata 
Mammalia, sub-order Artiodactyla, section Suina, but as we had not 
then had the pleasure of listening to Prof. Cooley's very interesting 
lectures on hogs, he was unable to carry the classification further. He 
then went on to say that the disposition m some quarters to visit con- 
demnation upon our esteemed President for hiring this undeveloped 
specimen of a doubtful species as an instructor was uniust. 

The class of nineteen hundred and five as Freshmen were a suc- 
cess in every way. We wished to make ourselves the only class in 
college; and in order to do so, we resolved to win every class contest. 
It so happened that all the games took place before our plans matured, 
and if I remember correctly, our class won but a single victory. In the 
rope-pull, it was our rope from the start, but our opponents succeeded in 
capturing it by means foreign to our Freshman ways of doing business. 
Our football team was a credit to the class, and although we did not win 
the victory we showed the opposing class that we were not ignorant of 
the game. My diary states that '05 was defeated in basket-ball by '04 ; 
the score was left blank. In baseball our plan to win matured before 
the game. It was 'OS's day and beneath the folds of our pennant, 
serenely floating from the flag-pole, our team battled. They battled 
not in vain; for that night in Springfield the class of '05 assembled to 
celebrate with a class supper the successful close of their Freshman 



This fall, when we took upon ourselves the important duties of the 
Sophomore, we found every member of the class in his place, notwith- 
standing the trials and tribulations of Math. Thus, with our ranks full, 
we started out to teach the Freshmen a few of the college customs. The 
night that college opened it rained, and as we have always paid strict 
attention to the sanitary condition of our campus, we started out that 
night to wipe it up. We looked around for material from which to 
make mops, and as the Freshmen seemed the best we could find, we used 

The progress of our class along intellectual lines has been great. 
We have men from the best preparatory schools in the state, and men 
who come directly from work to obtain an education. Even though we 
have lost a few members, we are not discouraged ; and with the hope of 
electives in our Junior year, we steadfastly believe that in 1905 we shall 
graduate a large class. 

In conclusion I would like to say that even if we did not accomplish 
much in our Freshman year, we learned to know each other and to 
become acquainted with the college, which we love and respect. "Old 
Massachusetts " stood by us during vacation and we were glad to return 
to its beloved walls. The sight of the chapel, of the campus, of the 
dormitories, and even of the college pond, brought back former recol- 
lections, which will never be forgotten. Now, as Sophomores, let us 
work together, not only to elevate our class, but also to raise '• 'Old 
Massachusetts ' to the highest."

Freshman Class History 

* * ¥ 

WE arrived in the prosperous city of Amherst a little over two 
weeks ago and took our examinations. Some of us passed 
the examinations in a way that made us feel like a six-inch 
cat that has just wriggled through a three-inch knot-hole. 

The first day I got here papa and mamma found a little room for 
me near the college, with a motherly old lady. Mamma cleaned up 
my room and put my things in order. The salts and herbs she put on 
the shelf near the bed, and the rest of the things from my uncles and 
aunts she packed away in different places. Papa told me not to fear the 
Sophomores, and if they tried to conduct me to an evening bath, to tell 
them who 1 am and my father's position and influence. Mamma told 
me, when I should go to the "Hash House" for my meals to be very 
polite and not to ask for anything, but wait until it was passed to me; 
so you see for a number of days I did not get much to eat. Mamma 
and papa left me that afternoon all to my lonesome. The only thing 
I could do that day was to lock my room and to start one of those eight 
letters a week that I had promised to write to mamma. 

It rained the day college opened so that every blade of grass was 
revived to its original color that we might not present too strong a con- 
trast to Mother Nature. After the first recitation our class met the 

' ' terrible Sophs " at the door of the recitation room and by Gosh — • 

(mamma told me not to use such strong language as that) I mean-er 

Well anyway, we went through them so quick you would have thought 
they were a lot of cornstalks. After that rush, in which we lost only 
one cap and one cuff, we decided that the Sophomores were not so terri- 
ble as often represented. But how short-lived is such a victory we were 
soon to learn. 

At midnight of the first night the Sophomores gathered on the campus 
and began to yell for the victims. So the Freshmen came out in the rain. 


and wet rain at that, to silence them. [That is twenty-four Freshmen 
did, the rest must have had stage fright or an attack of homesickness.] 
In the first charge our twenty-four met and held their thirty-five, but 
after that: O. my! The less said the better. 

But we will meet them again when we, too, shall have football 
shoes and nose guards. Before that, however, they will feel our 
strength in a rope-pull, where they cannot out-number us. 

In one thing we are the equal of the Sophomores now, if not more 
than their equal, that is in Co-Eds. The Sophomores have two and we 
have two ; but if it should come to strife between them, the Sophomores 
will have to step to one side. 

We now have three men in the choir and five men on the football 
squad, but we have not been here long enough to tell as yet how many 
we shall have on the team. Yet there is little doubt but that we .shall 
be well represented in every department of college, when once we have 
had the opportunity. 

The " wise fools" will soon learn that we do not fear them, as much 
perhaps as they wish. In the contests that are soon to come, our 
endeavor shall be to sink the class of rJ05 into oblivion.

Coach Jennings 

Frederick Everett 
Jennings was born at 
Everett, Mass., in 1S77. 
He received his early 
education in that town 
and entered Dartmouth 
College as a graduate 
of the local High School. 
Completing his college 
course there in 1900, he 
is now a member of the 
Class of 1903 at Harvard 
Law. Mr. Jennings has 
been more or less inter- 
ested in football ever 
since he completed his 
lower grade studies. He 
played for four years on 
his High School team, 
in his Senior year serv- 
ing as captain of the 
team. In his Sopho- 
more year at Dartmouth 
he was a substitute, and 
for the next two years a 
regular halfback on the 
"Varsity" team. He is 
well remembered there 
yet as a hard man to tackle and a big ground gainer. The fall after his 
graduation he was the Dartmouth coach. During the early part of the 
fall of 1901, Mr. Jennings was not officially connected with any team ; 
but his interest in football was unabated and he made a study of the 


fine points of the game. In the latter part of October he was persuaded 
to take charge of the Massachusetts team and his coaching is to be ac- 
credited with the greater part of the success with which we closed the 
season of 1901. This fall he has again had full charge of the team. The 
Jennings strap, a photograph of which appears below, is of his inven- 
tion, and both the Dartmouth team and our own have found it of great 
assistance to the runner. The " coach" has gained the love and respect 
of every man on the team. If we must say good-bye to him this fall, 
the whole college will do so with great regret, but with the heartiest of 
good wishes. May he be as successful in everything that he undertakes 
as he has been in football. " God speed."

Review of the Year 

¥ * * 

A YEAR without something gained is a year lost. Whether 
Massachusetts as a college has advanced during the past year, 
or has lost that year is a question of vital importance to the 
undergraduates and of great interest to the alumni. Advance 
that is marked by change, so it is with that subject in great part 
this article has to deal. At the beginning of the college year several 
changes were noted in the corps of instructors. Professor Maynard failed 
of re-election to the chair of Horticulture, and later Professor Waugh, 
then a member of the faculty of the University of Vermont, was called to 
fill the vacancy. Professor Waugh comes to us with a splendid record. 
He is comparatively a young man, and bids fair to infuse new life into 
one of the important courses which the college offers. The position of 
Instructor in French, left vacant by the resignation of Professor Babb 
was also filled during the summer. Mr. Herrick, Amherst, '02, is fresh 
from college himself and appears to be imbued with a fine enthusiasm 
for his work. He has offered an elective course in the Spanish language 
outside the regular curriculum of sttidy, of which members of every class 
in college have taken advantage. Professor Lull, formerly Assistant, 
has been made Associate Professor of Zoology. At present he is com- 
pleting a course of study in New York City. His place at the college is 
being filled temporarily by Professor Loomis. The fellowship in chemistry 
has been awarded to H. L. Knight, '02. D. N. West, '02, has been 
api)ointed an instructor in mathematics and free-hand drawing. 


Last year the first college catalogue was issued. This is a great 
improvement over the old method of publishing matter in connection 
with the college along with the official reports of the experiment sta- 
tion, etc. 

The military department is in good condition. Last year a rifle team 
was selected and it competed in a match with teams from several of the 
other land grant colleges. Although the team did not get first place, it 
did well for a first performance, and something better ought to be looked 
for this year. The band, under the leadership of M. H. West, '03, has 
developed into a very creditable state of perfection. 

The State Legislature, during its last session, gave to the college a 
very generous appropriation for two new buildings. One of them, the 
central heating and lighting station, is at this writing ready for use; 
and the new boarding-house is expected to be ready for occupance after 
the Christmas holidays. The new athletic field also seems to be an ac- 
complished fact and it is hoped to commence work on it in the near 

It is almost certain that the class of 1905 will have the benefit of 
Junior electives. This will also make it possible to make the Senior 
year a little more comprehensive. For instance, the course in Zoology 
will not be ended in the Junior year, but will probably be made an 
elective to Seniors. 

Two new co-eds have entered college this fall. They are, however, 
taking the "special two-year course for women" instituted this fall, in 
stead of the regular four-year course. 

The Freshman class, while not as large as that of last year, is above 
the average in point of numbers, and contains good material. 

The fraternity conference still continues to do good work. Last 
spring a series of informal dances were given in the Drill Hall under its 
auspices, which added much to the social enjoyment of the student body. 
Last spring, too, college singing was instituted. A song-book was pre- 


roL. xxx/r 

pared, leaders appointed, and good work was done along that line. It 
is hoped that the scheme will be continued during the coming year. 

The "Nattiral History Society," the "College Chemical Club," and 
the "Journal Club" are in process of reorganization. Something new in 
this line, a "Horticultural Seminar," has been instituted in that depart- 
ment and bids fair to become as valuable an addition to the course as is 
the "Journal Club" to the course in Entomology. 

"Athletics" is discussed in another part of the book. Here it is 
enough to say that we were never in better shape in that respect than 
we are at present. 

Everything considered, we are justified in sajnng that the year 
1901-1902 w£LS a prosperous one, and that the prospects for 1902-1903 
are bright in every department of the college.

A Letter 

¥ * * 

Dearest Francis : — 

I'm so tickled that college is to open soon that I can 
hardly contain myself. You know I never could work much when I had 
anything on my mind, as I always seemed to have when working at the 
plant house. I really believe I wouldn't receive more than ten cents if 
I was paid for the time I actually worked. Do you suppose that Mr. 
Drew caught on to our loafing last year? What scrumptuous times we 
two did have together ! I tell you what, I never did have so many ex- 
citing times as I had last year. What if the boss knew we cut work 
that day! But then, there was no better place to get so fine a view as 
from — well, you know. 

Oh, say! Have you got one of those pictures Mr. took of 

me? If not, I guess it's the only one you haven't of me. It is too sweet 
for anything. The pose and expression is out of sight (excuse m}^ 
slang; I am mortal). Even Esther thinks it's fine. 

Well, Francis, I don't seem to think of much news, but you can't 
expect to get long epistles every time. I am going to steady down a 
little next year and do some good hard studying, and stop going to 
dances. Dances! You don't know what joy that word brings to me; 
I do so love to dance. But that, yes, and all else that shall tend todrav/' 
my attention from my books, I shall guard against. You just watch me 
as I sit in the tower window next year and see if my eyes are not ever 
on my book. Well, I must close. 

Yours until college opens, and then — yours if yours you can keep 
me, Bktiv.

"Esther" SKows the Insect Collection to Some 

Fair Visitors 

¥ * * 

Esther (pulling out tray of Arachninds) — "These insects here are 
scorpions, millipeds, centipeds, and er-er-a-cyclops, I think. These 
(pulling out another tray) are the Odonata." 

Visitors — " My! How ferrrocious they do look! 

Esther — "Weill guess you'd think so if one of 'em stung you. 
I have heard that they sometimes sew up people's mouths, so when I'm 
out coUectmg I always run when I see one coming, for it would be terri- 
bly inconvenient not to be able to speak to the boys." (Pulling out Or- 
thoptera tray). Did you ever hear of the Praying Mantids? 

Visitors — "Yes, to be sure." 

Esther (pointing to the male crickets) "Well, those are um." 

After exhibiting a few other trays in the same entertaining manner, 
she finally pulls out the tray of Hemiptera — the true bugs. 

Esther — " I suppose you've heard of Macrodactylis subspinosus " 
(the common rose beetle). 

Visitors — " O yes! yes! (aside) "What does she take us for? " 

Esther — " Well that is it," (pointing to Anosa trestis — the squash 
bug). "You know they eat squashes, one of the fellows who works 
here says they have been known to eat a whole barrel of squashes in a 
single night." 

Visitors — "Just think of it !" 

Esther — "This, here, is a kissing bug. One of the fellows told 
me that it died a natural death immediately after kissing Bertha Allen 
on the lip. She was the co-ed who started in with the class of '03, 
3^ou know." 

Visitors— " O yes, we've heard tell of her. She left college, did 
she not? " 

Esther — "Yes, poor girl. The boys were all timid in those 
days and used to run away every time she approached. I am glad they 
«// arn't like that now. (Pulling out the butterfly tray). Did you ever 
hear of the gypsy moth?" 


Visitors — "Why yes, yes! We are awfully anxious to see one.'' 

EsTHER(after searching carefully fora few minutes) — "Ar-er-um-er, 
well, there's one here somewhere. I don't know where it is. 

" These (looking at the labels) are the Col-e-op-ter-a, the beetles. 
I don't know much about these, but I don't think they are a bit nice. 
The dull ugly looking things ! It seems to me I've seen that one some- 
where. Let me see what's its name. ( Reading label ) D-o-r-y-p-h or-a 
d-e-c-i-m-1-i-n-e-a-t-a. I'm quite sure I've seen that, where was it ?" 

Visitors (laughing) — " Why, don't you know the potato beetle? " 

Esther — " O that's it, how stupid of me. These, here, are er — 
well, er — Hyinoptera (stealing a glance at label), no- — Diptera, I mean. 
This is so confusing, the way these insects are arranged. Now these 
are the dragon flies and the may flies and the stone flies and the 
flies — why they don't keep all the flies together I don't see. 
(Pulling out another tray) "This is the last tray. These are the 
bees and wasps. I am sorry I can't tell you as many interesting things 
about these as I did about the rest, but I haven't got as far as this yet." 

Visitors — " We'll excuse you dear. I don't see how you can 
remember so much. Do you have to show the collection to many many 
people ? " 

Esther — " Well-er — yes. Quite a lot. I kind of like it. It is so 
instructive, you know, and then it gives one a chance to talk with some 
young man now and then ; these fellows who work here are horrid, 
they don't any of them come up to Mr. R. My! That makes me think, 
he hasn't written to me for most a week. I wonder if he has got 
another girl up there in Lowell? " 

Visitors — ^" So you really are interested in some one? " 

Esther — "Yes, but I fear I have lost him. However, I shall 
endeavor to find out as soon as college opens." 

Visitors — " We hope you will. We must be going now. Thanks 
ever so much for showing us the collection. We have learned a great 
deal, especially about the Cyclops."

There was a young man named Tad, 
Fell in love most awfully bad, 

But it made him so sad, 

That now he is glad 
That he threw the girl over, by gad. 

And there was a poor chap from Aurora, 
Came fooling around the Sophmora, 

He got ducked in the pond, 

And soon after found. 
That he'd better not do it some more. 

There's a young man here from Armenia, 
For more than three years now he's been here, 

His brains are not many. 

We'd say he'd not any. 
But for one fact — he's a Senior. 

Skeet Allen's a wonderful chap, 
To clean out his room is a snap. 

He opens his maw. 

And waggles his jaw,

Ode by "Bill the Cook" 
♦ ♦ * 

Last winter, there was discovered serving in one of the most 
important departments of the college — the "hash house" — a genius. 
For many years the poetic fire had lain dormant within the brain of 
" Bill-the-cook." When it did break forth, it threatened to light up 
the universe. Had it not been for the editor of the Index there is no 
telling what would have happened ; for Bill was sending forth his gems 
at the rate of ten or twenty per diem. Recognizing the advantage of 
being the first to publish the work of this modern Shakespeare, the 
editor formally engaged him at his own terms under his own title as 
"Poetry Editor of the Index." Unluckily the " Poetry Editor" did 
not return this fall, so we are able to publish only one of his effusions. 
A careful reading will show that Bill did not have the benefit of a 
college education, but we leave it just as it was written for fear of 
taking from it some of its strength and fire. In this selection, the 
author poses as a Freshman. Attention is called to the last four verses. 
The majesty of thought heie expressed has, we venture to say, never 
been equalled in this or any other age. 

But when a boy I attend to school 

And learn my lessons on my stoll 

I stood on the line at number one 

And it look if I was true 

To be a scholar in my youth 

And try to be a man 

I learn my lessons with good will 

And past my night school days 

And so my parnunts send me to the College on the hill 

To larn my College days 

I try in might and vain to gain the start 

On the line that once was mine 

But their were other men to smart 

That made me toe the line 

In the Fall of Sep the 19 college open 

And my class number 05 


But did not dare our mouth's to open 

When we saw Oi was a live 

And we select our captain wich was Porter 

And we all thought he was a corker 

But when the Soph got a hold of him 

He beg and cr}' and shuk his wings 

The other's thought we was raising a other cain 

Because our class small and not able 

But small and true and a good name 

04 will allways stand on the table. 

The other's Peck of the our class 

Got to gather for some fun 

So theire thought's was to the freshmen class 

And you can bet they had they fun 

They was made in to a big dog 

And bark like fools at the moon 

And then on the ground they went like a frog 

And beg to let them go pretty soon 

So off they went for a night rest 

With 04 might bless 

In the morning they rosd like a cubmembers 

But said we had the class of the college if we did not have the numbers 

Well we thought we have some more fun 

In the fall of 1901 

When the North wind did hum 

We all got out and sung 

So in the pond they did wash 

Insilmenti and push 

The Soph did number it two 

And it was found to be true 

The}' got together then 

And the freashmen number it ten 

The fol found it was so 

But they could not throw 

Soph or freshman in 

Well our fun is mose over 

And 04 will give advice 


To the freshmen that will come over 

That dont be to bright and to fast 

Well good students dont decent 

In this wide world without conception 

The lessons you know comprehensible 

And then you will have your own denomination.

A Type 

The editors do herewith swear that the following is a correct copy — 
names excepted — of a letter received by a member ot the present Junior 
class. It is only a sample of a batch received by him when he was a 
Freshman and did not know any better. We are sorr}' not to be able to 
publish his reply. It must have been rich. 

My Own Dear Ted : 

Your little girl is lonely, all she can do is write to you, 3'ou are so 
far away, but dear heart you know the song " Absence makes the 
heart grow fonder," don't you? And Ted, ra.y Ted, being away from 
you makes me realize how dear you are to me, how much I love you. 
(Do I tell my boy that too often? But no! ! ! Why should I ask that? 
It was, it is and ever shall be [be the] the truth and the truth must 
never be questioned. ) We, you and I, love, must write in all sincei'ity, 
there must be no deceit between us, never, my love, never. 

You know that we intended to come down hei-e Thursday, but 
mama was so busy that she and I did not come until this morning and 
your letter was awaiting me; my sister, your sister got it for me. 

There!! Just now I took out your letter (guess where it was). 
No! I couldn't keep you guessing, dear, it was in my waist, and as papa 
was lying down on the grass near me, he saw the whole performance 


and how he did laugh at his little daughter as he said " So that's your 
post-office? Well, well!" And your little girl blushed, dear, but I don't 
care, you have my heart and your letters have the right to lie near my 
heart, n'est ce pas? 

O, I don't want to stay down here, take me away, dear, take me 
down to Maine, with you, I am not happy without you. Almost all 
summer and then all winter, O, love, what shall I do? But I will be 
true. And you, dear, and you? Ted, only remember. 

Sweetheart, that was a lovely way you wrote, O, dear I love you 
so. Why are you not here to tell me, tell me so while we are sitting 
side by side. O, Ted, my love! 

I can't write, can't do anything but dream, dream of you. And 
now when you come homnS from Maine, I want you for mine, want you 
to be sure to come down. Come and show them all that my boy is a 
noble fellow and that no summer flirtation takes my heart from you. 
But I am going to be good, going to belong to my Ted alone. And we 
can help each other to be good, dear, for love is sent from heaven, and 
you know, don't you, that I love you? 

When we were together, love, words were not needed, were they? 
Silence was golden. And I must do without you, do without your 
kisses, do without those dear brown eyes, that manly face upon which 
is penciled that story of a strong character, a pure true heart, a noble 
mind, never feel myself in those dear arms with your warm face pressed to 
mine, nor feel your warm breath upon my cheek ! But only for a 
time. Perhaps some time Well, remember that I love you ! 

No fine looking fellow can win my heart, it is all my Ted's. Know 
him? Well, he has the loveliest broad shoulders in the world and is 
the dearest boy in the world. Cease to care for him? Never, never, 
never. (" Three for good luck.") 

On my graduation night you gave me my first kiss of love ; O, how 
I dreaded to have you go after that. It was truly " the kiss that bound 
my heart to thine." Why ar'n't you here? 

Only the breezes can touch my lips until you come, and then, yes, 
and then. Ted, how I love you! Why am I down here? O, I want 
to go home, O dear ! All summer. Ted, you must come down ! 

Don't worry, dear, about any of the fellows, but trust your little 
girl. Tell me all your thoughts though. Remember, Tedkins, when 



you are away, write often else I shall think "the life of love is but a 
day," will you? And I shall answer as soon as I hear from you. O, if 
you only knew how lonely I am, how I long for you ! I don't want any 
one of the fellows here, I want you. 

What more shall I say? I am so homesick, homesick for my Ted ! 
Heart, be still ! There is an empty spot in my heart, if only to-night 
5'ou were coming forever. But you ar'n't. Where are you going, I 
wonder? Be true to me, dear! Be true ! 

I can't write any more, O, dear, what shall I do? My heart, mv 
heart, I am so lonely! Now, "good night," O, why can't I kiss you. 
Beloved, I love you, I shall love you forever. Ted, good-night. I can 
see you now as you left me, when you said "good-bye" (not forever), 
your head bent down, sorrow in your eyes. I can write no more, my 
love, no more. Farewell, be good and I am always 

Your own true lassie.

De Light Brigade 

* * * 

Dis ain't no war song, see ! I ain't goin' ter ihrow no hot can 
about four hundred guys what would ha' licked a whole army if dey 
hadn't all been killed before dey got to work, but if yer like, I'll tell 
yer how a half a dozen Sophs put thirty Freshmen on de bum and 
showed up de next day wid only one shiner. 

Well, as I say, dere were six uf us countin' me 'n' Tink. 
Tink was a great long gink wid de queerest display er cuss words ever 
put before de public. Yer see we got next dat de Freshmen was out 
fer a feed and we six started out to raise a roughhouse. We didn't 
know fer sure just where de Kids was goin' te eat but we couldn't think 
of a more likely joint dan de Cooley so we sets out fer Springtown early 
in de Evening. 

When we gets dere what de we find but de grub all served and de 
Freshies gettin' outside uf it as fast as dey could work dere maxillaries. 
Now we knew dat dat bunch was in de habit of gettin' round te supper 
as soon after dinner as dey could make de connections, but le see em 
sittin' down to a class feed at nine o'clock was de limit !" 

" By geewhiskers," sez Tink, " Ain't dat somethin' orfull !'' 

" Ain't it ! " sez I. 

We sees dey was no show of catchin' any of em outside so some 
one sez, 

" Lets go in de door and tip over one of de tables, fer if we don't 
do somethin' dey'll think dis smart trick of eatin' early was too much 
fer us." 

" By suff'rin catfish," sez Tink, " come ahead," and I knew by de 
way Tink brought out dat " suff'rin " dat sumthin' was up. 

So we sneaks up to de door and Tink pushes it open, but just dere 
he runs up against luck dat really made him say " damn ' or 't anv rate 
somethin' dat sounded more like dat dan it did like " liless us." X'xi 
door would only open a few inches. I tought it was all oil hul 'IMnk 
was bound te do somethin' so he reaches in, grabs de table cloth and 


starts down de steps. De rest of us does a dutch fer de street when we 
hears de racket but we had time te see dat de guys inside who was 
supposed te be enjoyin a banquet was in some kind er trouble. 

" By the great lop-eared swine," sez Tink, " sounds as dough some 
body dropped a plate." 

Well me 'n' Tink boots across de street, through a couple of alleys 
and up in te de news paper office. 

" Say " sez Tink to de guy what run de joint, " if you'd like te see 
de latest ting in crockery yer better drop down to de Cooley House. 
Dey's got a few second hand dinner sets day might be willin' te part 

Den we tells him how things was spillt and steps around to de 
other office to put wise de editor of de other paper. Dey both said 
dey'd write up de job; so me' n' Tink starts out te find de push. But 
after doin' all de likely dives in de city widout findin' a sign of 'em we 
give up de search and went into an open-all-night lunch te get a half- 
dime feed an' a woud'rin' all de time what had become of de other mugs. 

I- was just gettin' me fangs inter a hot dog when Tink rubbers out 
de door. 

" By gee wallapus," sez Tink. 
• "What's de matter!" sez I, jumpin' up. 

But before I could reach de door, in piles four lobsters what looked 
as dough dey might ha' been leadin' a radder strenuous life, wid nobody 
else but Patsy Bowler bringin' tip de rear. 

"Well, by de great horn spoon," sez Tink, "whose otermowheel- 
barrer has youse mugs been ridin' in?" 

Dey tried te tell us dere story, give us a song and dance, about 
makin' speeches at de Freshman banquet what was den goin' on at 
de Cooley. What we finally found out was, dat tree of um wid P. Bowler 
as disinterested specktater had called on de Freshies through a side door, 
and as de odds was only ten te one against 'em, dey was raisin' Cain wid 
de Kids till de latter begins buttin' out wid chairs 'n' bottles. At dat, 
de head waiter, who was afraid some more of his dishes might get busted, 
blew de whistle an' de mill was off. De visitin' team got out when he 
told 'em he'd put de cops next, and after smgin' a few verses of dere 
class song out on de front steps, dey comes on up de street wii de 
applause of an admirin' gallery ringin' in dere ears. 


When de story was all told Tink turns te me an' he sez, sez he, 
" By thunder we missed de fun." 
" By thunder we did," sez I. 

And den we gets a piece of beef steak to put on dat shiner and all 
went to bed in de cheap joint around de corner.

The Glee Club 

The past few years it has been a matter of much pleasure and en- 
joyment to the editors of the various periodicals and publications of the 
college to criticize the doings of the above. Therefore it is with great 
satisfaction that we are able to comment this year upon the extraordinarily 
successful season of 1901-1902. 

The Club had been strengthened and replenished by an influx of 
fresh young ooids, uncontaminated by the ruinous exactions placed upon 
a college student, such as singing in chapel every morning, cheering, 
etc., and after careful training and good preparation they started on their 
tour. As this was the first year for some considerable time that Massa- 
chusetts had been represented on the stage or platform, it was the occasion 
of considerable excitement at the different towns. The first engagement 
was at Waterlog, a short distance around. Here they were met at the 
station by a barge filled with straw, all the members were hustled in, the 
driver whipped up his horses, and off they flew before the great crowd 
which had gathered could catch more than a glimpse of them ; not, how- 
ever, before a triumphant cheer had broken from the mass, which served 
as a mighty inspiration to the boys. The auditorium was crowded to the 
doors which, being kept open, enabled a throng beyond to enjoy the 
spectacle. Standing room on the pavement brought seventy-five cents, 
the other prices were proportionate. The Waterlog " Thunder Cloud" 


Stated in its columns the next morning that fully " eighty thousand spec- 
tators had witnessed the thrilling sight." 

The program was varied, and interesting from beginning to end ; 
and a description of one would be a fair criticism of all ; it was repeated 
at each town with but slight changes. 

The first number was a song of welcome to the barnyards and corn- 
fieldsofthe "DearOld Home," with imitations of the various sounds heard 
thereabouts; the bellow of the Jersey bull, by the capacious gay boy, 
with all the power of his expansive waist, was so realistic and terrifying 
that several of the children were awakened and it was with difficulty that 
they were quieted again. 

Leffenhaffenpuffer, with his droll imitation of the major of the bat- 
talion on parade, brought down the house, and it was some moments 
before silence could be restored. 

The tenor then sang the famous ballad "Over the Rails to the 
Wood Lot." He struck out magnificently, but after going about fifty 
feet, he tried a bar and flew high but landed flat on a sharp cleff full of 
quivers. When he righted himself, his partner had a lead of five bars, 
but he struck out with new vigor and after an exciting chase with a few 
b's in the minor, he cleared two bars at a jump and tied the piano with 
a slur. The end of the strain was in sight now and he reached the last 
chord. With a magnificent burst of exulting power, he flew a hemi- 
demi-semiquiver, and landed in the topmost branch of a scrub oak, 
where he stuck. The curtain just then fell. 

But it would require too much time to mention the entire order of 
dances, sufficient to say the effect was Peleeic. 

At the town of Wartboro, the arrival of the Club was heralded by 
the booming of cannon ; and as the train pulled in a very mob of 
citizens stood with bared heads, while the now famous singers alighted. 
As they stepped from the platform, a bevy of the prettiest girls in town 
met them, and each taking one by the arm escorted them to the 
triumphal car, while a group of children scattered Syinplocarpus foetidus, 
and other fragrant flowers in their path. 

As they seated themselves in the car, a blare of trumpets announced 
the approach of the mayor, who in a graceful speech extended to them 
the freedom of the city and entrance into all the roof gardens ''free 
gratis." Then the procession started. A cordon of police followed by 


the '• Knights of the Rusty Sword" cleared an opening for the train, 
the "Young Men's Middle of the Road Club," followed next and these 
in turn were succeeded by the " Daughters of their Former Grand- 
mothers'" on floats ; after these

at this point, and the article was left unfinished. It was not thought 
best to ask any one else to complete it, for our editorial board was small

Time, . . . Now. 

Scene. The College Chapel. All the members of the 
cast are present ; as the curtain rises the President raps for 
order with a gavel and all become seated. 
The President. Gentlemen, will you please come to order. Are 
you all here? {Looks over his glassrs). If any are not here, willth^y kindly 


signify that fact by remaining away. The first business is the report of 
the Secretary on our last meeting. 

The Secretary {reading). Friday, — , 19 — . The meeting 

was called to order in the absence of the President by Professor 

First Professor (interrupting). We know all that Mr. President. I 
move you sir, that the further reading of this report be dispensed with 
and that it be accepted. 

Second Professor. I second that motion, Mr. President. 

The President. You have heard the motion gentlemen. Those 
in favor will say aye; those opposed, please keep quiet, and the motion 
is carried. What is there to come before our high mightinesses this 
afternoon ? 

Third Professor. Mr. President, I have to report that Mr. Stu- 
dent of the class of has failed to make up the cutover work which 

was due from him last Friday. 

First Professor. I move he be expelled. 

Fourth Professor. Do I understand that he refuses to make up 
this work? 

Third Professor. — No, not exactly, but he has done only apart of 
the task set out for him and 

First Professor. I move he be expelled. 

Fourth Professor. I do not exactly understand the circumstances 
Mr. President. Is itproposed to expel ilr. Student because he has failed 
to make up certain cutover work? If so, I think the case ought to be 
considered verj^ carefully. 

Fifth Professor. I should like to say to the Professor that this is 
the only charge of which we have an}' definite proof. There are, how- 
ever, some other things against the man which, if they could be proven, 
would be almost as serious. 

Fourth Professor. If they cannot be proven, I can see no use in 
considering them. 

The President. Let the Professor state what he means by other 
charges. Does the culprit smoke cigarettes ? 

Sixth Professor. Yes, I know he does, but he rolls them himself. 

Third Professor. How do you know? 

Sixth Professor. Well, he rolled one for me a few days ago. 


Seventh Professor. That doesn't signify anything. I've done 
that for you several times. 

Sixth Professor. Who said it did signify anything? I was merely 
stating that he smoked, and that he smoked cigarettes, and that I knew 

nothing whatever about the matter and that he 

Eighth Professor. Well, what are we talking about anyhow ? 
Sixth Professor. I don't know. 

First Professor. Mr. President, I move that he be expelled. 
Sixth Professor. If the Professor means me Mr. President, I will 

tell him that I have as much right in this meeting as any 

Fourth Professor. Well, I don't see that we are getting on. Is 
there anything really against the man? 

Fifth Professor. He swears. I heard him say " damn " on the 
campus the other day. 

Sixth Professor. Oh, he may have said that for effect. I some- 
times do myself, you know. 

Ninth Professor. To say " damn '' is not to swear in the state of 
Massachusetts anyhow. 

Chorus, . . . WHAT ! ! ! 
Ninth Professor. It has been so decided by the Gre.\t and 
General Court. 

(At the word " Court " all rise and bow toward the City 

of Boston. The bow should be made by crossing the arms 

behind the back and bending forward three times. The 

first time the head should be lowered to the waist ; the second 

to the knees ; and the third time, the forehead should touch 

the iloor. Done in unison this is very effective. After the 

bow, all solemnly resume their seats). 

Tenth Professor. Mr. President, there are several things to be 

considered in this matter outside the character of the man himself. It 

has seemed to me, and I think that other members of the faculty must 

have noticed it {liere the First Professor leans back in his chair and goes to 

sleep) that a number of cutover cases have come before us this semester. 

Now if, as there seems to be, there is a general tendency among the 

student body to — to — well, if the gentlemen will excuse the word — to 

"monkey" with the cut system, I think with Shakespeare that — {the 

First Professor, ivho has leaned hack too far in his chair, falls over backward.) 


First Professor (rising angrily). Mr. Pr-r-r-esident I move he be 

Eleventh 1'rofessor {who has been inattentive to the whole discussion). 
If the Professor means Mr. Student and not Mr. Shakespeare, I will 
second his motion. Mr. President, we have consumed {looking at his 
watch) nearly twenty minutes in considering this case. In that time we 
have had time to expel a half dozen Mr. Students. I call for a vote. 

The President. Gentlemen, it is my duty to put the matter to a 
vote. Before doing so, I would like to remind you that the sentence of 
expulsion is considered to be very severe by some people, and the student 
body might think it too severe in this case. 

Eleventh Professor. All the better. If the student body as a 
whole are tampering with the cut system, they ought to be punished, and 
this will be in the nature of a punishment to the whole college. If the 
man was deserving of expulsion in their minds, this v/ould not be the 
case, but if they feel that the sentence is undeserved, they will feel it 
almost as much as Mr. Student himself. 

(The vote is taken.) 

The President. A sufficient number of votes for the expulsion 
have been cast. The President understands that he is to inform Mr. 
Student of that fact by letter requiring him to leave town at once. If 
there is no objection that will be done. Is there anything else to come 
before us this afternoon? 

Ninth Professor. I should like to ask the Treasurer if he is will- 
ing for us to take up the case of Mr. Under Classman. 

The Treasurer. I should like a few days further delay. I find, 
on referring to my book, that he is in debt to the college some six or 
eight dollars. I think it would be better to wait until I have had an 
opportunity to make an attempt at collection. 

Ninth Professor. O, I think there is no objection to our waiting 
a reasonable time. If there is nothing further Mr. President, I move we 
adjourn. My wife and I are going out this evening and I suppose an 
early supper is in order. 

Third Professor. I second the motion.- — {All rise, and while getting 
their hats there is too )nuch confusion to hear the President put the motion).

since. He came to America when he was too 
young to know much about it ; and entered the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College with the Class 
of lyOl . He left college at the end of his Fresh- 
man year, and re-entered and joined the Class of 
1904 about three years later. He is entitled to 
the M both in football and baseball, and also 
played on the college basket-ball team last winter. 
He is the captain-elect of both of the two latter 
MIKE " Varsity " teams. He was also a member of all 

four of the class athletic teams during his Sopho- 
more year, and can therefore wear numerals all over himself if he so 
desires. Mike is a miCmber of the College Shakespearean Club and of 
the Rope, Axe, and Monkey-Wrench, and is a Corporal in Co. A. 

ERNEST ADNA BACK happened over here 
in Florence twenty years before he entered col-

he was graduated from Northampton High School. 
He is on the Index Board and has held the office 
of Secretary of the Class of 1904. Even now he 
is the Vice-President of the Y. M. C. A. As a

JOHN JOSEPH FAHEY thrust himself upon 
the residents of the town of Pittsfield, January 
16, 1882. He managed to graduate from the 
local High School in 1900, and entered college 
the following fall, where his winning smile and 
magnificent bearing won for him the favor of 
the Amherst maids from the outset. Jack is five 
feet twelve and a half inches tall and wears a 
derby hat. He played on the class baseball team,

with Physics and join the Engineering Corps of 
the Salvation Army. 

Scotia his birthplace. He graduated, however, 
from the High School in Lynn, Mass., with the 
Class of 1897, and entered M. A. C. a year later. 
During his Freshman year he was on his class 
football, rope-pull, and basket-ball teams, being 
captain of the two latter. He left college at the 
end of his Freshman year, but two years later re- 
entered as a member of the Class of 1 904. In his 
Sophomore year, '04 couldn't do any better with 
him than '02 had done, so they let him act as 
captain of their rope-pull and basket-ball teams, HARVEY 

and also allowed him to play football with them. 

Harvey is much disposed to argument, and costs the Mathematics and 
Chemical Departments much expenditure of nervous energy. He belongs 
to the College Shakespearean Club and played on the college basket-ball 
team last winter.

ago. He graduated from the High School at 
Natick, Mass., in 1900, entered college because 
he wanted to, and has wanted to stay ever since. 
During his Freshman year he served as class 
secretary and treasurer and was again elected to 
that office this fall. He holds the same office in 
the Chemical Club. Has played on the class foot- 
ball, basket-ball, and baseball teams, and sports

in Maiden, Mass., September 26, 1882. In the 
year 1888 he happened to land in Winthrop and 
liking the place he decided to remain and gradu- 
ate from the High School there. Realizing this 
ambition in 1900, the Class of 1904 at the Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural College looked seemly unto 
him and he fell all over himself trying to get here. 
Tad was once secretary and treasurer of the class 
and the treasury has been broke ever since. He 
played on the class football and baseball teams 
in his Freshman year, and as a Sophomore added tad 

the basket-ball team to the list. He is assistant

Fargo, North Dakota, May 2i, 18SL When only 
two days old he made known his intention of 
making the Massachusetts Agricultural College 
his alma mater, and it was with that idea in mind 
that he moved to Southbridge, Alass., some time 
after. Eight years ago he flipped up a coin to 
see what class should have the honor of gradu- 
ating when he did. The lot fell to 1904, and 
consequently you can see his likeness on this 
page. Haskell is a member of the C. S. C, and

because he couldn't help himself. He graduated 
from the Templeton High School in 1899, and 
waited a year before entering college. He early 
developed a huge taste for Mathematics and a 
huger fondness for a certain maid ' ' down home '' 
whom he speaks of as " Dear Lucy. " He has a 
younger brother "down home" too, who keeps his 
classmates well informed as to his adventures 
with the gentler sex. Deacon was on the rope-pull 
team in his Sophomore year. He is a member 
of the College Shakespearean Club, and is assist-

ZACH HUBERT was born near Pride, Ga., 
in 1877, twelve days after the ides of March. He 
was broug^ht up on a farm until he was considered 
tall enough to go to the Atlanta Baptist College. 
Here he completed both the preparatory and the 
regular college course, and graduated in 1901. 
The following year he was bookkeeper for the 
college, which position he resigned to enter the 
Junior Class at M. A. C. only a few months ago.

a few weeks old. His taming was slow but sure, 
and in 1900 it was considered safe to give him a 
diploma from Melrose High School, and pack him 
off to college. The Class of 1904 was asked to 
take charge of him, and this they have done with 
a fair degree of success ever since. Chicko has 
been a valuable man to the class in athletics, hav- 
ing served as captain of both the rope-pull and 
football teams. He made the college football 
team in his Freshman year, playing first as full 
back, and for the last two yeai's at the half back's 
position. He is a member of the O. T. V. fraternity, of the Fraternity 
Conference, and of the Thomas House "Cageits." He is the "Holder 
of the Axe" in the Rope, Axe, and Mo ;key- Wrench Society.

into Stockbridge and remained there to complete 
a High School course. Graduating in 1900, he 
entered Massachusetts with the intention of 
specializing in •' stock-breeding," and is here yet. 
In his Freshman year he was president of the

college at the local High School, and entered 
M. A. C. with the class of 1903. When 1904 
came in, however, he liked their looks so well 
that he waited for them to catch up to him, and 
bade farewell to his former running mates. He 
made both the college football and baseball 
teams in this Freshman year and has played 
both games ever since. He claims to be the

It is certain, however, that he has lived in 
Brockton, for he shows a diploma from the High 
School of that city. Quigley has played on three

back in the seventies he began to make a noise 
in Pottsville, Pa., and as he learned to talk he

while at the Central Manual Training School, 
Philadelphia, he started in to work, but gave it 
up for an easier life in college. He has since 
found out his mistake, but is going to stick it 
out. While he is supposed to be studying here, 
it is a noticeable fact that much of his time is stub 

spent "up north," why we are not prepared to 

say. If you don't think he is an important personage, consider the 
following; Once our class president, twice its historian, twice on the 
Burnham Four, has sung in the choir, played on the class baseball team,

there some twenty-one years ago. Completing 
his High School course in the spring of 1900, he

HIS, the thirty-fourth volurxie of the -INDEX, :s the work 
of the class of nineteen hundred and four. It has been the 
purpose of the editors to make it worthy of the class and 
Tvpical of the progress made by the college. Nothing withm 
these pages has been the work of any but members of the 
class, and no remuneration has been given to -y but the pnnters and 
engravers. The thanks of the board is due to Mr. C. A Tinker, the 
artlt who notwithstanding the fact that he left college at the beginning 
ott; Junior year loyally retained his position on the board and com- 
pleted tie seriJs of drawings, which he had begun during the sumrner 
vacation. With the exception of the drawing -presenting the 
" Y M C A •■ the illustrating was entirely done by him. Mr. A. W. 
Gilbert'of ■ the class also merits the gratitude of the board for his invalu- 
able aid to the business manager and his assistant, when the latter was 
unable by reason of his absence from college to attend to his duties. 

At the beginning of their work on the " INDEX "tne editors had 

two ideas paramount in their minds, the first, to put the book on sale 

before the Xmas holidays, and the second to be sure that the statistical 

portions of the volume be absolutely correct. At the present writing 

Their hopes in regard to the first matter bid fair to be accomplished, but 

there are still many difficulties to be overcome, ana a delay of only a 

ew days will be fatal. Very little of the work of preparation can be 

done until the fall term. Seven weeks at least must be allowed for the 

printing and binding, and consequently by far the biggest share of the 

abor necessary has had to be done within little more than a month. 

It need then be small cause for wonder, if the board is unable outside 

of their regular college duties, to find all the time needed to complete 

^'''Trl^^-^Zour statistics, we can not claim them to be perfect. 
Much of the data, especially as concerns the alumni is obtained only m 
k round-about way, and its accuracy cannot therefore be vouched f o . 
As an example of the difficulties in this respect take the alumni list 
perhaps tle'most important part of the volume. At the beginning of 


the year a circular letter enclosing a blank to be filled out was sent to 
every alumnus. Ample time was given for their return ; and yet out of 
between six and seven hundred blanks sent, only about two hundred 
have been returned within the specified time. We cannot then but 
believe that the blame of publishing an incorrect alumni list rests not 
with the editors of the INDEX, but on the alumni themselves. To be 
sure some of the circulars may never have reached the parties to whom 
they were addressed, for if we had been sure of all the addresses there 
would have been little need of .sending for them, but in the majority of 
cases, there is in all probability no excuse. An attempt has been made 
to publish the names of the permanent class secretaries at the head of 
their respective classes, but as yet the list is iacomplste, and it is very 
likely, that with the time left at our disposal, it will be impossible to 
perfect it. 

The above is not written with any desire to shun adverse criticism 
where it is deserved ; but there has been so much said about the inac- 
curacy of our immediate predecessors that we desire to throw some of 
the blame where it properly belongs. As to our literary columns, we 
have only to present to our readers' attention the fact that from five men 
selected from a class of twenty-three or four cannot be expected the 
same degree of work as ought to be looked for, were the class numeri- 
cally larger. Literary talent even of the smallest is a scarce article at 
best; and when we say we have done what we could, we have no other 
excuse to offer. 

With this account of some of the difficulties with which we have 
had to contend, we present this volume of the INDEX for what it is

The Cut System, 

For a little more than two years now the ten per cent, cut .system 
has had an opportunity to bring out its good and bad points, and that 
ought to be long enough to give both students and faculty a chance to 
decide whether or not it is a success. From the student's point of view 
(of course these pages present only the student side of every question), 


the system itself is a good one. The old method of going to the indi- 
vidual instructors with an excuse for every absence in the several de- 
partments seems a little below the dignity of a college man, besides 
leading to all sorts of abuses and misunderstandings. But the cut sys- 
tem, too, has its faults, and the onus of rectifying the worst of them 
rests with the faculty rather than the student body. 

The cut system as it stands is as follows: A student having fifty 
hours of recitation in a given department is allowed five cuts. Until 
these are used up no questions are asked; but with the sixth absence 
trouble begins at once. For a single cut-over, extra work either in the 
form of an examination or otherwise is required. So far so good. But 
now watch ! There can be no second over-cut. This is literally true. In 
other words, all cut-overs after the first nnist be excused by the faculty. 
In case of sickness an excuse signed by the visiting physician must be 
presented. I wonder if the gentlemen of the faculty ever stopped to 
consider what that means to a poor man working his way through col- 
lege. Suppose a man has some chronic disease which forces him to keep 
his room at intervals more or less distant from one another. He has had 
the trouble before ; he knows what the matter is and what to do for him- 
self. There is absolutely no need for a doctor unless some complication 
sets in ; and yet for the sake of keeping out of hot water with the faculty 
he must pay for at least one, perhaps two or three, visits of the physi- 
cian. The remedy? That is not the writer's business. Of course, we 
realize that some limitation must be set to taking cuts, but it seems man- 
ifestly unfair that a man who can afford to pay for the luxury of a visit 
from the doctor can lie in bed for a few days in peace of mind and spirit, 
while he who is using every cent he can scrape together to pay his way 
through college must drag himself around to a vSeries of recitations, make 
four or five flunks in as many hours, and then — swear at the cut system. 

This is only one of several evils that exist in the cut system as it 
now stands, and it should be understood that the students are responsible 
in some cases as are the faculty in others. There is always some one 
ready to take advantage of any liberties allowed him in this respect, and 
in consequence the faculty seem to have come to a point where they are 
in deadly fear that every student in college is trying to "do " them out 
of a greater or less number of " cuts." 


The McCobb Case. 

One of the great principles of the Anglo-Saxon race, a principle for 
which they have fought ever si:-.ce King John of England was forced to 
sign the " Magna Charta," is the right of any man accused of any crime, 
great or small, to be tried by a jury of his peers, and the right to appear 
himself and .bring witnesses to appear in his own defence. It is then a 
cause for great surprise that a college faculty can still continue to try a 
man behind closed doors, neglecting even to inform the accused that his 
case is before them for consideration ; giving him no opportimity to 
defend himself; calling for no witnesses; in fact, acting as witness, 
judge and jury all in one, and end by imposing the sentence of expul- 
sion. And yet this is exactly what was done in the case of Mr. McCobb 
last spring. It cannot be pleaded as any palliation of this high- 
handed proceeding that a hearing was later given to Mr. McCobb. It 
was very, very much more unlikely that the sentence, once made pub- 
lic, would be repealed than that a fair trial in the first place would have 
had a very different result. Besides when the case was called up for re- 
consideration there was very little change in the nature of the proceed- 
ings. Mr. McCobb, to be sure, was called before the meeting and a few 
questions asked him. No one else was allowed to say a word in his de- 
fence, however, and he was excluded from the entire discussion that fol- 
lowed. It any member of the faculty had a word to say for or against 
him, he did not hear it; and the result of the meeting was sent to him 
by letter. 

Now what was the charge for which expulsion, the harshest sen- 
tence that can be imposed by a college faculty, was the penalty? In a 
word, "overcuts;" " overcuts'' and nothing else. The facts of the case 
in as few words as they can be correctly stated are as follows. 

Mr. McCobb was a Senior on the verge of graduation. The work 
of the first semester of his Senior year had been done to the satisfaction 
of his professors. During the latter part of the winter and in the spring- 
he got more or less behind in his work, not far. behind, not so far but 
that it was reasonable to expect him to be able to make it up. His 
excuse? — Illness. On several occasions he was confined to his room for 
two or three days at a time. At times he had a physician, and at others 


he did not. He overcut, and presented as an excuse the physician's 
certificate. He overcut again and perliaps again, not however, witliout 
sufficient excuse. But the faculty had had several cases of overcutting 
come before their notice of late and they began to fear, as one of their 
number afterwards said, that several of the students had combined to 
"try-out the cut system." What should they do? A stop must be put 
to it at once. Who seemed to be the worst offender? McCobb. Well, 
he was a Senior, but so much the better ; the lesson would be so much 
the more forcibly impressed. Let the German professor set out for him 
a certain amount of cut-over work and let it be stiff, stiff. Now there is a 
certain Senior vacation coming the week just before graduation during 
which time cut-over and condition work may be made up by members of the 
Senior class. It would naturally be supposed then, that Mr. McCobb 
would be granted the usual privilege of waiting until that time before 
handing in this extra work. Sirch was not the case however ; it must 
be done at once. Now, as has already been said, without its being any 
particular fault of his own, Mr. McCobb was somewhat behind in his 
term's work. About this time too, his Senior thesis was due, but no 
allowance was made, he was given first a week and then three days 
more to write out the translation of a scientific treatise, which with all 
the knowledge of the German language which could be expected of 
him, was an unfair task even if he had no other extra work. It was 
afterwards shown, that on the afternoon of the day on which the v/ork 
was given him to do he was seen taking part in a baseball game on the 
college campus. The writer knows for a fact that at that time he had 
absolutely no idea that he had anything more than the usual amount of 
cut-over work ahead of him. When he did find it out he more than paid 
for his two or three hours on the campus, by working by candle light 
into the small hours of the morning. 

Even the smallest attempt at investigation would have brought 
these facts to light at the time, but, to the shame of the faculty, no such 
attempt was made. On the contrary, the mere report of Professor Smith 
that the work had not been completed resulted in a notice being sent 
to Mr. McCobb that he was expelled from the college and required to 
quit the town immediately. 

Naturally much indignation was aroused among the student body. 
The Senior class appointed a committee to demand an investigation. A 


show at one was made, and the faculty met for a reconsideration of the 
case. The result of that reconsideration is stated above, and it would 
have been much more to the credit of the faculty if they had admitted 
their error and revoked their former sentence. It is the belief of the entire 
student body as it stands that the " Honorable Faculty of the Massa- 
chusetts Agricultural College " were in error in the first place, in error in 
the second place, and much more open to censure than Mr. McCobb. 

To make the matter worse, uninterested parties outside the college 
began to circulate all sorts of stories to the effect that the real reason for 
the expulsion lay in something more than mere "cutovers." This mat- 
ter was brought to the writer's attention very forcibly because some of his 
relatives, knowing him to be McCobb's roommate, began to fear greatly 
that his morals had been contaminated, and he had much trouble in 
explaining the real facts of the case. All such stories are, however, 
downright falsehoods. It was decisively stated to both Mr. McCobb and 
the Senior class committee that the faculty had no other hold on him than 
the fact that he had not done the work assigned him within the specified 
limits of time. 

Indeed, the first purpose of this writing is to " give the lie " to all 
stories detrimental to Mr. McCobb's reputation. He had, to be sure, 
several faults all too common among college men. Others he did not 
have; and, in the opinion of the undergraduate body, he was as much 
entitled to his diploma as were many of his class who did receive theirs. 

The simple fact that the faculty, on their second consideration of 
the case, decided that if he so desired Mr. McCobb could obtain his 
diploma by returning and completing the last half year of his work with 
the class of 1903 is proof enough that he was not expelled for conduct 
detrimental to his reputation or that of the college.

Forensic Club 

It has Ijcen truly said that difference of opinion has alwa3's been a 
powerful spur to liuman progress. Where can this difference of opinion 
be better cultivatt'd than in our debating society, the Forensic Club? 


Although the club for the past year has been smothered beneath the 
rush of our busy life, yet there still remains a glowing coal in our 
remembrance of its past history which is ready to burst into flame if it 
be given but the fuel of enthusiasm. 

This much is certain : for the past year this organization has 
suffered through lack of interest. It means hard work to get up a good 
debate ; it takes thought and time to present one's cause in a forceful 
and intelligent manner and to be able to refute the opponent's 
arguments. Indeed it is this very element which makes the club of 
such importance. It is here that we put into practice laws previously 
learned from text books, and it is here that we become familiar with the 
methods of procedure, not only in societies such as this, but in any 
meeting in which a knowledge of parliamentary law is required. 

With regret we note the fall of the several political organizations of 
college. Here is a suggestion. Under the auspices of the Forensic 
Club exceedingly beneficial debates on political subjects might well be 
planned to take place between the members of these clubs. Thus there 
would be a powerful spur of rivalry added to our debates which for the 
past few years has been lacking. 

When the club re-organizes this year, it is hoped that the fellows 
will take hold of it with that enthusiasm which shall make it one of our 
strongest organizations. We have the material for an excellent society 
and no end of interesting subjects. 

*« f ♦ 


It is our pleasure in this volume to record what is perhaps the most 
successful year in athletics that Massachusetts has ever had. That is to 
say, our college to-day is better known among the New England colleges 
than it has ever been before. The credit, however, belongs almost 
wholly to the football team. At the end of our football season of ItlOl, 
we were surprised to find ourselves sixth in standing among all the New 
England colleges. Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, Brown and Williams 


were our admitted superiors on the gridiron, but they only. During the 
season but one game out of ten played had been lost, and of the nine 
defeated teams but one had scored on us. 

At the beginning of the winter then we found ourselves with a 
reputation which, with our small numbers, we could sustain only by the 
hardest kind of work. Two or three years before there had been a basket- 
ball team in college. It was thought that now the time was ripe for its 
re-organization, and everything considered, we put a basket-ball team 
into the field that was a credit to the college. This being practically 
our first season in that field of sport, and from the fact that we did not 
belong to the New England League, we were able to obtain only four 
games with other colleges. Two of these were with Amherst College 
and were lost to a better team ; Trinity and Wesleyan, however, were 
both defeated by close scores. During the entire season we won five 
games and lost three, and scored a total of 191 points to our opponents 
177 ; not a bad beginning to our basket-ball history. We have lost several 
good men with the class of 1902, but with the experience gained, there 
is no reason why we should not make a good showing in the sport during 
the coming winter. It is hoped, too, that we can secure admittance to 
the League this season, thus making it easier to obtain games with other 
colleges and obviating the necessity of filling up a schedule with Y.M.C.A. 
teams and the like. 

As opposed to our success in football and basket-ball, last year's 
baseball season is disappointing. But si.x college games were played; 
and five of these were defeats. To be sure none of the games were lost 
by large scores, and all of them were with colleges numerically much 
larger than our own, but this is no excuse. This same handicap in 
numbers works against all our teams. The truth of the matter is, that 
there was a painful lack of interest among the student body, and an 
absence of unanimity among the members of the team itself, that lasted 
throughout the season. Consequently, it is no cause for surprise that 
the baseball season of 1902, if not a failure, came very near to being 
one. Next spring will be a crisis in our baseball history. Another 
season like the last will almost strike a death-blow to the sport in this 
college; and this fact should be continually borne in mind by every 
student whether a member of the team or not. 


With the coming of fall, however, interest in athletics became 
intense. The college hoped to put a football team in the field better 
than any that had preceded it, and thus far the work of that team has been 
all that was expected of it. To be sure the results of three of the games 
have not been entirely satisfactory. That with Holy Cross, however, 
was played on a very slow field ; the team was not far enough developed 
to make fast play desirable ; and though neither team scored, we showed 
ourselves much superior to the Holy Cross eleven. The Wesleyan and 
Tufts games came at a time when the team showed the results of over- 
training. In the case of the former, the Wesleyan team cannot be very 
proud of their victory, for it was obtained on a questionable decision 
and by a single point ; while, on the contrary, the result of the game 
with Tufts was disappointing from another cause. We ought to have 
won by a much larger score. Two games yet remain to be played. 
Worcester Tech. ought to be easily beaten, but the game with Amherst 
is another matter. This year, that college has a particularly good team 
in the field ; and we ought to be satisfied if we are able to hold them 
down to a small score. 

No matter what the results of this game, however, the football sea- 
son of 1902 has been a success. We have played all our games with 
colleges from twice to five times our size, and are therefore out of our 
class. Whether we can continue to do this year after year is a question. 
It is hoped, however, that two or three successful seasons will result in 
increasing the size of the entering classes, thus giving us the benefit of 
more material from which the several teams can be selected.

The Glee Club 

This year there is no such organization. It should not be under- 
stood, however, that the students now in college, are to be blamed for 
that fact any more than their predecessors. So far as we can make out 
there has never been a " Glee Club." To be sure a number of names 
have heretofore been put down in the Index, and a picture has been 


taken supposedly representing such an organization ; but after that 
picture had been taken, the Glee Club was no more than the college 
choir, and we submit that hymns are no more like glees than the 
chapel organ is like the college band. 

The reason for this state of things is not far to find. The two 
organizations, the Choir and the Glee Club, have been too closely 
connected. One instructor and one leader have served for both ; the 
same night was used for rehearsals ; and instead of the interest centering 
in the latter as it should have done, the time of these rehearsals was 
almost wholly taken up in practicing hymns and anthems for the 
coming Sunday. 

The remedy, too, is at hand. There is enough musical talent in 
college, which, if properly utilized, would at least add something to the 
enjoyment of those entertainments provided for us by the ladies of the 
faculty during the winter ; and in a year or two something more could 
be attempted. Some one with musical training and ability must, of 
course, be at the head of the thing, but it is not absolutely necessary 
that every member of the chorus should be able to read music. A man 
with a voice and some little ear need only practice to enable him to 
carry out a part at least satisfactorily, and there are enough men in 
college who have the necessary training to act as instructors and the 
foundation on which those not so well instructed can lean until they 
become familiar with their own parts. 

Here, then, is a chance for someone to do his college a great 
service. vSomethmg of the sort is needed and needed badly. And, by 
the way, why wouldn't a Minstrel Club be a success?

Who read, not we who write must criticise', 
But when you read, just tliink on this. 'Twas done 
As work of love for thee, oh reader, for nought four. 
And Massachusetts. 

And if we've struck in love, or made thee butt 
For merriment, remember but tlie love; 
With thoughts percTiance how you might write "bout us 
Were we the readers.

Massachusetts Agricultural College 

A Rare Chance to obtain a liberal and thoroughly 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 work. 

Three Courses of Study are offered: an e/cven rceki' practical course 
in agriculture and kindred sciences; a four years course leading to the degree 
of Bachelor of Science; and a graduate coui se leading to the degrees of Master 
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, aboriculture, care 
of greenhouses, types of cryptogamic orders, and histology. 

3. Chemistry. Practice work in the laboratories, qualitative and quan- 
titative analysis, inorganic and organic, adapted to special needs. Geology. 

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

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

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

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 year. 

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

Henshaw: " How I love to lijiger long with Lucy. " 

9. Political Science. The course provides for instruction in political 
economy, that a knowledge may be gained of those established laws of the 
business world which control the market, finance, and the production and dis- 
tribution of wealth. Especial attention is given to the economies of agricul- 
ture. 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 agricultural, 
horticultural, 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, a model barn 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, fif-

Dear Sir: — 

Your favor of the 23rd inst. is at hand and in 
answer would say that we would be pleased to fur- 
nish you with the stock you mention. The Berk- 
shire swine and Southdown sheep we offer for 
sale are all high grade registered animals. 

The French Coach colts about which you es- 
pecially inquire, possess all the characteristics 
of their sire Lance which won four first prizes 
at horse shows this year. They are of fine form, 
showy action, and have intelligent dispositions. 

I shall be pleased to meet you on your trip 
to Amherst and can then present the subject more 
satisfactorily by showing you our stock; they 
should be seen to be fully appreciated. 

Very respectfully yours, 

~£ c4. Jonc^, 't/a/,/. 

.\(i/:r I am he.

An experience of more than 20 years in the center of the tobacco growing district of Connecticut 
has enabled us to produce what we consider to be the very best fertihzer for the tobacco plant ever 
offered — our 


Ii is of vegetable origin No minerals or acids of any kind used. Tiie potash, nitrogen and phosphoric 
acid all beingavailable and and of vegetable sources. There are 4 different sources of nitrogen s of Ph°^Ph°nc 
acid and 4 of po.ash By this method the plant has something to feed on from the time of planting through to 
M^maluritv It is the most natural plant food ever offered and altogether different from any other tobacco 
fertilfzer on rte market. It will produce light wrappers of uniform quality, soft, pliable, of good texture. En- 
dorsed by all the larger growers and tobacco buyers. . , • ,/ .„ 

This fertilizer produced the banne, crop of shade-grown Sumatra m 190.-2. Guaranteed analysis : s^, to 
to 6^ per cent ammonia; 3 to 4 per cent phosphoric acid (available); iV, to f^ per cent actual potash (,n the 
form of carbonate).
