the JUNIOR CLASS of the 





Volume XXXVI I I 

With wind and sunshine, rain and sleet, 
And drifting snows; the hours fleet. 
Of pleasure, sorrow, joy and care, 
Of one more year are past and gone: 
Lord, grant that each his best hath done. 

And now dear friends, as thee we greet, 
May this, our work, approval meet. 
For now we place it in thine hands; 
Such record of our toil and thoughts 
As in its passing hath been caught.

Richard Swann Lull 

MERSON has said: " The universe has three children, born at one 
time — the Knower, the Doer and the Sayer. These stand respec- 
tively for the love of Truth, for the love of God and for the love of 
Beauty. Each of these three has the powers of the others latent in 
him, — his own, patent." To each man, following out his own 
instincts, comes the choice which of these three shall be his inherit- 

The class of Nineteen Hundred Eight has elected to dedicate this book to one who 
chose for his lot the knowing, the pressing on to one field of research after another, that 
he might read what Nature has written of her history upon the earth's face. 

Richard Swann Lull was born with the love of the sea in his veins, while in his father. 
Captain Edward Phelps Lull, U. S. N., he had a most illustrious example of patriotism. 
With all the traditions of his family calling him to the life militant, it may seem strange that 
Dr. Lull chose rather to study the records of the warfare between the primal forces of 
creation. Perhaps, as in the case of Agassiz. 

" Nature, the old nurse, took 
The child upon her knee. 
Saying, 'Here is a story book 

The Father has written for thee,' 

Born in Annapolis, Md. thirty-nine years ago. Dr. Lull was prepared for college 
at the State Model School, Trenton, N. J. He entered Rutgers College with the class 
of 1 892, but dropped his college work for a year, to engage in teaching. Returning to 
college, he elected the course in Biology, and was graduated with the class of 1 893, 
receiving the degree of B. Sc. In 1 896, he took his Master's degree from Rutgers, and 
in 1 903, was awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy by Columbia. 

Following his graduation, Dr. Lull obtained the appointment of Special Agent of 
the Division Entomology, with headquarters at the Maryland Experiment Station. Six 
months later he was appointed Assistant Professor of Zoology, at the Massachusetts 
Agricultural College, as well as Curator of the Museum, being advanced to the Associate 
Professorship in 1 903. 


During his career at this college, Dr. Lull has steadily pushed forward in his work 
as an investigator. One summer was spent at the Biological Laboratory at Cold Spring 
Harbor, while on the invitation of the American Museum of Natural History, Dr. Lull 
spent two summers working among the fossil deposits of the Bad Lands.. 

Among the published results of his investigations are — "Memoir on the Fossil Foot- 
prints of the Jura-trias of North America;" a monograph on "The Ceratopsia," (with 
J. B. Hatcher) ; articles on "Adaptive Radiation in Vertebrates," published in the Amer- 
ican Naturalist, as well as frequent contributions to The American Museum Bulletin, The 
Journal of Geology, and others. 

In June of 1906, Dr. Lull accepted an appointment to Yale University as Assist- 
ant Professor of Vertebrate Paleontology, and Associate Curator of Vertebrate Paleon- 
tology in the Peabody Museum. Because of the wider field, the greater opportunity. 
Dr. Lull is to be congratulated upon his new station. Equally should Yale be congrat- 
ulated that she has added to her corps of instructors a man with whom Massachusetts most 
reluctantly parts. 

To the quality of his work at the Massachusetts Agricultural College, a host of 
enthusiastic students speak most eloquently. Another witness, silent, but none the less 
eloquent, may be found in the results of his curatorship of the Museum. His influence has 
been felt in all departments of college life, and always for good. With a keen love for 
the out-door life, he sympathized most heartily with the athletic interests of the college, 
while the weight of his influence has been thrown toward clean spcrt and the love of the 
sport for itself rather than as a means of self-aggrandizement. 

What records of the early days may still be hidden within the earth, unread, one 
cannot know. But it is certain that, in the future as in the past. Dr. Lull will work on 
steadily in the path that he has chosen, "Searching Nature's secrets far and deep." 

For what he has given the college through all his years of service here, we rejoice, 
to his career in the future we look with anticipation, and with all good wishes for his 

When "through many a year his fame has grown," we, his associates at the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College, passed far beyond those days but not beyond their 
memory, shall hold in pleasant recollection the years when we were all workers together.

HE 1908 INDEX BOARD for the Junior Class presents this, the 
thirty-eighth volume of the Index. In compiling the book two 
main objects were kept in view. In the first place, to make it a 
class book, a book to which the men of 1 908 may turn in future 
days and find chronicled and pictured therein the many happenings 
and incidents which go to make the days spent in college the hap- 
piest days in life. Secondly, to picture, in a more general way, the 
life of the college as a whole in a manner that will be pleasing to the student body, inter- 
esting to the general public, and iristructive to secondary school men who are considering 
the choice of a college. 

If we have succeeded in doing these things, the work is a success. The reader must 

Finally, we earnestly thank every person who by thought, word, or deed, has helped 
to make the book less unworthy of " Old Massachusetts."

Senior Class History 

E WHO READS the class histories in the Index cannot help being 
impressed by certain features. The freshman history is filled with 
nervous expectancy and anticipation for the class really exists in the 
future. The Sophomore historian writes with all the enthusiasm 
which the emancipation from Freshman bonds brings to him and 
the class which he represents. The history of the Junior 
Class outlines those incidents occurring when it was a part 
of "the other half," and is characterized by the dignity of which plug hats and corduroys 
and canes are only the symbols. With the Seniors it is yet different. One who writes 
the history of the highest class in college feels only too vividly that it is the last account 
of his class which will appear in the annual — next year he, and his classmates, will be 
numbered among the alumni. The ambitions and desires of the freshman, the wise fool- 
ishness of the sophomore and the ostentatious dignity of the junior roll in upon him and, 
together with that large interrogation point looming above the horizon whence lieth the 
next commencement, are apt to tinge his writings with a sadness and misanthropy quite 
out of place in an historical sketch. 

Of no class is this more true than of 1907. Three years ago we first became a part 
of that unit which is the student-body of Massachusetts. Then we were filled with 
bright plans for our coming college career. The future stood before us unrevealed, but 
flushed with the roseate dawn of a new day. Now, as our sun has passed its meridian 
and is sinking in all its crimson glory to illuminate a new world beyond this sphere, we 
pause a moment to consider the work which we have accomplished and to express our 
regret at the feats which we have not achieved and which must be left to our successors. 
It is not my intention to describe our career during the first two years in college for 
my predecessors have ably performed that task. Our records during the constructive age 
as freshmen and the destructive age as sophomores are given indelibly on the pages of the 
Index. Rather is it my task to recount our experiences as juniors during the past year. 
We found an interesting and willing class waiting last fall to be inducted into college 
life and, thanks to "Shorty" and other members of our victorious rope-pull teams, '09 easily 
defeated their opponents in the tug-of-war. Besides guiding the freshmen in the right 
paths we got out our Index and is not that a sufficiently difficult task for one year? One 
or two disappointments awaited us as juniors. The greatest of these was the failure of 
Tabby's renowned Chemical Trip to materialize. Anxiously we awaited the visit to the 
pulp mills and breweries, down the river, but in vain. To make up for this there was the 


banquet tended, to us, by 09, in New York City, an entirely unsurpassed affair for 
the junior year. Truly volumes might be written of it, how many of our staid classmates 
from Abe down to Chimmie and Chauncey flew off on a tangent, in the big city — but let 
us charitably draw the curtain upon that never-to-be-forgotten episode of our college life. 
And so our junior year rapidly passed. We waded through Seager in Political 
Economy and most of us skidded through the Kid's course in Mineralogy on averages of 
65 and 70. This fall when we strolled down to the bald-headed row m chapel we 
found three more of our bunch numbered among the "unreturning brave." And thus it 
is that from sixty-six, we have diminished to twenty-five in number. Our freshman his- 
torian prophetically said: — "Watch us grow not in numbers but in strength." The 
intricacies of the course of study in the first two years have entangled many of our number 
and the mastery of the physics course was accomplished by some of us, only as the whistle 
blew for the last time. But this veritable "survival of the unlike" has moulded us into 
a class which is unexcelled for its spirit and loyalty to self and college. For the last 
time, the snows of winter are falling on the hills to the westward, and ere "the orb of day" 
has completed another cycle of the seasons we shall have passed beyond. If, however, 
"the good that men do lives after them," the fame and the honor of '07 will continue 
through the years as a tradition, even though the class is no longer enrolled on the books 
of the college. And, in closing, it only remains to express what has been the sentiment 
of 1907 from the beginning, is now and forever shall be: 

"All up for dear, Old Bay State, ring out the tune. 
Loyal forever to the white and maroon."

Junior Class History 

WAS MOONLIGHT. My restless spirit was seeking for some 
quieting influence, and I went out into the open, skirting the college 
buildings, and going up through Lover's Lane to Mt. Pleasant, 
where I seated myself upon a decaying stump, to contemplate, and 
drink in the beauties of the evening. I fell to thinking of the college 
which lay below me, the m.any events which flashed through my mind 
seeming to tumble on each other's heels as did those rolling clouds 
above, swiftly and silently streaming across the heavens, the pale moonlight lighting now 
and then their turbid forms with a glorious radiance. And those thoughts which were 
most illuminated in my mind were of the class which honored me with her name, the 
class of 1908. It seemed to me that at least a part of the history of that college was 
the shadow of the history of that class, just as the fleeting forms which raced across the 
earth beneath were shadows of those clouds which pursued above. And I fell to watching 
those shadows as they sped along, noticing the fantastic forms as they hastened away 
forever. The Chapel stood dim and majestic in the fickle light, and at its feet lay in 
perfect tranquility the College Pond, dark and forbidding. 

Suddenly the moon burst clear of the tumultuous clouds, and threw a beautiful 
light across the dark form of the Chapel, illuminating it as some huge panoramic screen. 
And, as the Clouds broke in again upon the victorious moon, small shadows flitted across 
the front of the Chapel, and I seemed to see written there the words "Massachusetts 1908." 
A light shadow sped across the screen, followed by a picture of the Chapel, with doors 
flung wide open and many forms streaming out like a river of life. I saw the four 
classes as they issued forth, last of all coming the hesitating, uncertain freshmen, numbering 
almost as many as the other three classes together. And as I looked, I recognized my 
worthy class-mates, friends who have stood the test well, and still go in and out of those 
Chapel doors, just as on that first morning of college. 

Scarce had this picture been thrown upon the screen when a huge dark cloud wiped 
it away, leaving all in a threating and murky silence. The clock pealed twelve, and im- 
mediately a flash of escaping light revealed a picture of the midnight campus, with 
dim forms gathered in breathless awaiting at either end. The flash of a pistol, a sharp 
report, and the two bodies of beings were hurled at each other in dim confusion, swaying 
hither and thither, but always pushing towards the South, showing that those who came 
from the North were superior in the dark conflict. 


Another pause, and then a series of scenes revealed the freshmen practicing for 
the rope-pull upon the hill, with anxious sentinels standing guard, and a dim figure on 
horse-back skirting the ever watchful company in vain endeavor. Another threatening 
cloud, followed by a flash of angry light, and, there was pictured a band of disappointed 
sophomores as they retreated from the fatal hill, gently bearing the battered form of our 
friend on horse-back. This was closely followed by a view of the campus, with happy 
sophomores bearing away the pieces of a well-fought-for rope, and disappointed fresh- 
men dispersing to their rooms in grim silence. 

Then again the dark shadows of the clouds chased across the scene, revealing here 
and there glimpses of '07 in midnight gatherings at the edge of the pond, or by the 
reservoir on the hill, watching intently the forced antics of frightened freshmen. Another 
stream of light revealed the gridiron, with '07 and '08 lined up against each other, and 
'07's set of backs making those gains which finally resulted in victory. These were 
dark scenes, joyless and sorrowful, and yet through them all '08 seemed to be drawn still 
closer with the ties of class spirit and enthusiasm. And now burst upon the screen a flood 
of joyous light. The scene showed the Drill-hall, and a hard fought game of basket-ball, 
with the joyous freshmen victorious, and lighting for the first time on the campus ttieii 
pipes in token of victory, — glorious victory. 

Again the scene was long delayed, revealing only here and there the studious 
freshmen poring over French and Math, with the grim and threatening figures of Johnny 
and Billy plotting in the back-ground. But in vain they plotted and schemed, for '08 
wouldn not be stuck. The time slipped rapidly by until June, and then came the base- 
ball, with '08 again victorious, and '07 defeated in her last class game. 

The Chapel doors again swung open after a long period of darkness, and I knew 
that another college year had begun, and 1 908 were sophomores, gay and happy in their 
condescending toleration of a new freshman class, 1 909. The scene rapidly changed to 
one of the campus, with again a body of beings at either end, but this time the conflict 
was illuminated by the bright sun. A pole stood in the middle of the field, seeming to be 
the goal of ambition of both sides. A signal, and the contest was on, hard and fierce, but 
with '08 victorious — over-whelmingly victorious. Then another dark shadow crossed the 
screen, revealing '08 going down in defeat before the well-trained rope-pull team of '09. 
Meanwhile, the scurrying shadows revealed glimpses of the "Widows," the pond, the 
reservoir, and many a dark and terrible path trodden by quaking and fearful freshmen, 
unable to get together in class unity and endeavor. A flash revealed the gridiron again, 
with '08 bearing off on their shoulders a victorious team. Another flash, and the Drill- 
hall rang with cheers of '08 victorious in basket-ball, while creeping through the door 
in abject disappointment was the class of '09, with '07 close at their heels. Still another 


burst of light, and again the base-ball diamond was lined with hilarious men of '08, win- 
ning the last of their series of class games. 

A second pause in the panoramic scenes, and the dark shadows brushing away 
revealed '08 as juniors, staid upperclassmen, doing their share in the advancement and 
government of college affairs. The scenes flitted across peaceful days, days full of joy 
and accomplishment, days when the class stood as one man for all that was noble and 
best in the college life, free from the least taint of dissention, striving for that goal which 
at last seemed within reach — the completion of a college course. And then the moon burst 
forth in unrestrained splendor, its beautiful refulgence lighting that panorama of 1 908 
with a glorious promise of success and fulfillment.

Sophomore Class History 

NCE AGAIN the march of Father Time and his ever increas- 
ing band of warriors halts us in our onward march, and as 
we pause and look back upon the events of our Freshman 
year and forward to the duties which are detailed to us as 
Sophomores we feel, for the first time, that our efforts as 
members of the undergraduate body have not been entirely 
in vain. 
Our record in athletics during our freshman year was an enviable one. After 
giving the sophomores a merry tussle in the " pole-rush," our efforts were concentrated on 
the rope-pull, which we won decisively, to the unbounded delight of our 1 907 instructors. 
The foot-ball game was a hard proposition with us, as we had several men debarred from 
playing by the rule of the senate which states that no "M" men shall participate in class 
foot-ball, but, nevertheless, our opponents scored but once and then only in the last minute 
of play. The basket-ball game was truly an exciting affair and, although we had two 
'varsity men, 1 908 had three and we were beaten only after a plucky fight. 

As the fierce, icy grip of Winter relented, we began to think about a banquet and, 
notwithstanding the extreme care with which we were watched during our allotted time 
given by the senate, we slipped cut of town and made merry in a highly successful banquet. 
The period immediately following this was marked by 1 908's persistent efforts to 
gave swimming lessons to members of our class at unseemingly hours of the morn, and this 
was so strenuously opposed by 1 909 that we retaliated one warm night in June and 
1 908's efforts to quell our means of retahation resulted in an historic encounter over near 
the Drill Hall. 

The base-ball game coming just before Commencement was generously conceded by 
us, after a magnificent exhibition of the great American game by a score of 3 to 1 . 

Returnmg to college for our sophomore year we were appalled at the losses sustained 
in our ranks. Of the ninety-one who responded to the first roll-call, but a scant sixty 
returned to uphold the prestige of 1 909. 

We were undismayed, however, and in the new tug-of-war across the college pond 
we succeeded in dragging 1910, bag and baggage, through its miry depths, thus initiating 
them into the college customs in a fair and sportsmanlike manner. 

We also showed 1910a few tricks about pulling rope, our invincible rope-pull team 
taking over twenty feet of rope away from them in two minutes. 

Our policy toward this latest acquisition to the ranks of the student body is intended 
to be productive of a cultivation of college spirit above all else and then indeed will we 
feel that our mission among the classes has been fulfilled and the maroon and white of 
1 909 has led the way toward a new era in the college hfe of old Massachusetts.

Freshman Class History- 

AS 1910 A HISTORY? Her history has scarce begun, and yet 
that which she has is worth relating, and shall be truly told. Per- 
haps we may say that it began months and even years ago, when 
a kind genius directed our eyes and hearts towards "Massachusetts," 
our grand old "Bay State," and we threw ourselves heart and soul 
into the effort to become fit and worthy of the honor which she has 
at last reposed in us. And then came the high school graduation, 
the parting from erstwhile friends, a short vacation, entrance exams, and then a new life, 
puzzling and incomprehensible at first, college life. 

And so we are living to learn. 'Twas not long after our advent into the college 
life that we were told of an approaching contest with '09, a tug-of-war across the pond. 
The prospects were not very alluring, and yet when we heard of the pole-rush, and its 
predecessor, the campus-rush, which this new contest was to replace, w<; indeed appre- 
ciated the wisdom of the student governing body. The day of the pull arrived and ' 1 
prepared herself fit for the contest. The sophomores had choice of sides, and chose wisely. 
A false pistol shot shook our nerves, and strained our muscles in eager effort. Then 
came the true signal, and with rope pulling taut clear above the shoulders of our foremost 
men, the unequal contest began. A moment of suspense and the rope came our way, and 
these of our worthy members who could get the rope under their arms felt a new tingle of 
joy and hope, and threw new effort into the struggle. But it was in vain. Slowly the 
sophomores' firm hold began to tell, and the rope went back, and then down to the water's 
edge, where a last gritty stand was made, and even as the struggle entered the water, 
not an instant was it relaxed. The honors were '09's, and yet ' 1 claims her share for 
grit and pluck. 

Then came the regular rope pull, with its secret practices, and kindly help of the 
juniors. We were given to understand that the sophomores do know how to pull rope, 
llhcugh in other things they are pretty lame. So we threw ourselves with good spirit into 
developing a good rope-pull team, but an early challenge cut short the practices, and 
again ' 1 went down in defeat, this time with good grace before a fair victory. 

It was at this time that ' 1 O's yell first rang across the campus, and may it ring many 
times more in token of victory and indomitable courage. We are confident of winning 
the really important class contests, football, basketball, and baseball. And meanwhile 
we are doing our part in support of varsity honors. Our heart's ambitions are first for 
our own " Mass'chusetts," and then for the class of 1910.

Foot Ball 

HE SEASON of 1906 presents new features in the game of Foot- 
Ball at Massachusetts. In the past, the Dartmouth system of 
coaching has been in vogue. With the graduate system of coaching 
practiced this year. Coaches O'Hern '04, and HaUigan '03, have 
made but few, if any, changes. The new rules, all through, would 
be to the advantage of lighter teams, but as all our early games were 
with larger colleges and heavier teams, which had not up to that time 
started the open play, our team of only 1 60 lbs. average had to fight with indomitable 
spirit to hold down scores. This was especially true in the Brown and Harvard games. 
At Harvard, the first appearance of a Massachusetts team at the Stadium, the men played 
one of the best games of the season. In open play. Burr, the famous Harvard punter, 
found Cobb his superior in the art, and in order to score Harvard was forced to open 
her line attack. Here her heavy men forced their way through our lighter line, though 
the men fought grittily to the end, creating a most favorable impression for Massachusetts 
teams and spirit at Cambridge. The approach of the game with Amherst is the pleas- 
antest feature of the season, and with her name once more upon the schedule, the student 
body is as a unft in spirit and enthusiasm. 

With the hardest schedule the college has ever played, it is very difficult to say 
whether or not the season will be a success from the standpoint of victories. The out- 
look for 1907 is the brighest in the history of the college, as the eleven loses but three 
men from the present squad. Our alumni need not fear that we have for any length of 
time succumbed to larger institutions, for the spirit here, as ever, seems to be expressed 
in that stirring song — 

Hail ! Hail ! Massachusetts, 

Loyal and true. 

Thy sons are gathered 

To cheer for you 

And whether victors or vanquished we 

Still we'll be cheering for M. A. C.

ROM EVERY standpoint the base-ball season of 1906 was a suc- 
cessful one. The secret of the success lies in the facts, that the team 
had, for a time, the services of a good coach, and the co-operation of 
the entire student body. Never before has the enthusiasm been shown 
that was evident last Spring. The one misfortune encountered was the 
losing of the coach's services so early in the season. The squad had 
been given a good start however, and did justice both to the college 
and themselves. Although the percentage of games won was no larger than during the 
previous year, the general opinion was that the team played a faster and headier game. 
The majority of the games lost were to larger colleges and by small scores so that no dis- 
credit should be given the team for these defeats. The spirit shown by both the players 
and student body all through the season was indeed encouraging to the manager and Cap- 
tain. I sincerely hope that this spirit will continue to prevail because it means much to the 
welfare of the college. Next year the best team that ever represented Massachusetts will 
be put in the field. It will lose the services of but two men and with a captain possess- 
ing both experience and ability there is no reason why the team shouldn't keep pace with 
the other colleges. The principle thing is the consistent, clean game so characteristic of 
Massachusetts to keep our college where she belongs. In closing, I would like to say 
that I consider the success of the season of 1 906 due in no small part to the untiring 
services of Manager Cutter. Wishing you success for the coming season, I remain, 


Captain 1906.

I THE PROSPECTS for a strong basket-ball team this season are very 
encouraging. With the whole of last year's team back, and what the 
freshman class will furnish us, we ought to turn out a winning team. 
In past years the basket-ball team has drifted through the season 
without the aid of a coach, but this year the management hopes to 
secure some one who will coach the team for the first part of the 
season at least. The manager is arranging some hard home games, 
and if the team is to win these games the student body must show their interest, and 
promote that spirit which gives a team determination. 

Because basket-ball has not been a popular sport at M. A. C. in the past, it is no 
reason why we cannot make it a drawing card this season. If every one helps the team 
along by his presence at the practice games, or his persistent work on the squad, I am 
sure that basket-ball will become a thriving branch of athletics. 

This season, practice, in many cases will be held directly after drill, so there will 
be no excuse for a man not coming out because he cannot spare the time. When the 
call for candidates is made I hope that a large number will respond. We want men out 
who are going to stay; men whom we can depend upon when the varsity needs a strong 
scrub. Let us all enter into this season with a new spirit, and put out a team that will 
make Old Massachusetts proud.

Musical Organizations 

— ' 1^ 



OR SEVERAL YEARS previous to last year our college has lacked 
even the attempt at any organized special music, aside from the cadet 
Band. Last year in order to supply a long felt need the Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College Musical Association was established and 
made its first public appearance. The gratifying success of the Min- 
strel show^ and the entertainments, certainly proves that if this can be 
maintained as a permanent organization, it may well become an im- 
portant as well as a very pleasant feature of our college life. 

There seems to be a tendency on the part of those who might make good to be 
backward about coming out and doing what they can. This is not the spirit we want 
to see, in fact it is not the Massachusetts spirit at all. Each man should at least make 
the effort if he has any music whatever in him, for he can certainly make someone work 
harder through the proper spirit of competition. We need the earnest support of all to 
achieve the success this work rightfully deserves. 

To those who cannot help us directly we would suggest that you be lenient in your 
judgment and remember we are inexperienced. Give us your encouragement and hearty 
support at all times. As a new organization we are somewhat handicapped financially 
and any contributions will be extremely welcome. But, perhaps, the most urgent need 
of all and still the one least likely to be supplied is the want of thoroughly competent 
musical instruction. The wealth of undeveloped talent we find here is a strong plea 
for training in this line. The Band has set the example and why not give the Orchestra, 
Mandolin Club and Glee Club an equally good opportunity? Let us hope for some 
generous benefactor in the near future.

Sons of Old Massachusetts 

Bay State's loyal sons are we. 
In her praise our song shall be. 
Till we make the welkin ring 
With our chorus as we sing. 
With the tribute that we bring, 
Holyoke's hills prolong the strain, 
Echoing to the glad refrain. 
And the gentlest winds proclaim 
Far and near thy peerless fame. 
Praising e'er thine honored ^ame — 
Massachusetts ! 

Chorus : 
Loyal sons of old Massachusetts, 
Faithful, sturdy sons and true. 
To our grand old Alma Mater 
Let our song resound anew. 
Cheer, boys, cheer, for old Massachusetts, 
Give our college three times three; 
Sons forever of the Old Bay State, 
Loyal sons, loyal sons, are we ! 

For thy colors pure and bright. 
For thine own maroon and white. 
Glorious victories we crave. 
Symbols of thy spirit brave. 
May they long in triumph wave! 
All thy sterling worth reveal. 
Grant us nobler, manlier, zeal. 
So though borne by Time's command 
Far beyond thy sheltering hand. 
Still devoted sons we'll stand — 
Massachusetts !

Our College dear, 'tis e'er for thee 

We raise on high our hymn of praise; 

For thee and thy maroon and white. 

Our own Bay State, and colors bright. 

Our chorus shall in triumph roll, — 
Thy praises be forever told ! 

We praise the hills and valleys near 

That watch o'er thee with their sweet cheer. 
Thy sterling worth, thy manly zeal. 

Thy willing hands and hearts of steel. 
Thy spirit brave that knows no fear, — 

To these we echo back our cheer ! 

Our prayers shall ever be for thee. 

Our Alma Mater, M. A. C, 
The college of all others blest. 

The college that our hearts love best. 
May God's own blessing rest with thee.

Hurrah ! Hurrah !

Hurrah ! Hurrah !

We've cheered our teams to the victory. 

We're jolly Juniors of nineteen hundred and eight. Rah ! Rah ! 
We're without a thought or care in life. We are ! We are ! 
We're out at best for a jolly good time. We are ! We are ! 
Then up, boys, up for the grey and maroon 
Off with your hats while we sing our tune 
Now sing, boys, sing with all your might and main. Rah ! Rah ! 

Chorus : 
Then ! Cheer, Cheer, Cheer, 
For nineteen hundred eight 
The class that knows no fear. 
Oh Cheer, Cheer, Cheer,

Our College dear we'll be true to thee 
And nineteen hundred eight.

A Review of the Year 

E HAVE BEEN admonished not to put our "hand to the plow and 
look back," yet when a year long furrow has been turned and we 
reach its end, we have a desire to see how well we have done. And 
as the plough-man turns and notes where the furrow ran deep and 
true, where the snag or stone threw out the point, or where the turf 
refused to turn; so we shall note the improvements and set backs, 
and land marks of the year. 
We came back as Sophomores to find things in an apparently prosperous condition. 
The crops were bountiful, especially grapes and peaches and many a visit was paid to the 
hill both day and night for the first few weeks. The new Horticulture building was 
well under way. The Freshman class brought in some good strong men and some much 
needed football material. 

During the first few weeks, numerous entertainments were given by the talent of the 
Freshman class in the old "Hash House." This blot on the landscape has since been 
removed and embryo orators of future classes will have to exercise their ability elsewhere. 
So the autumn wore on with the football team winning now and then a game but 
things looked rather discouraging, when, with a magnificent burst of enthusiasm the 
students made preparation for the Springfield Training School game. Right in the 
midst of this preparation came what was perhaps the greatest catastrophe this college 
has ever seen. Waking to the cry of, "Fire!" we saw black smoke billowing up from 
the college barn. Not one of us will ever forget the scenes of that night. Every man 
worked as he had never worked before. The students saved a large part of the stock 
and some of the machinery but it was heart-breaking work and the barn which had been 
the pride of the state was down in an hour. That was Thursday night and Saturday 
the Student body almost to a man went down to Springfield and helped the team trim 
the Training School by the best score we had ever beaten them. 

The spirit roused for that game is with us yet, manifesting itself in many ways. 
It is the spirit that made the fellows pay double taxes without growling and bring the 
Athletic Association back to good standing. It is the spirit that has made Massachusetts 
back up a losing team as well as a winning one. It is the spirit that has made this 
college tackle big propositions in athletic lines, and not only tackle them but down them, 


Another milestone in the history of our college was the re-organization of the Y.M.C. 
A. From a poorly supported, poorly organized society which was almost a standing joke to 
many students it has become a powerful influence here. Almost simultaneous with this 
movement, and somewhat connected with it, came the revival of the musical clubs. This 
phase of college life had been pracrically dead, but we hope now to have a musicale once 
in a while to distract our attention from our over-studied books. 

The informals through the year have been successful and have been made all the 
more pleasant by serving the lunch at the intermission at the Dining Hall. The Junior 
and Senior Proms, were well attended and were heartily enjoyed as much in their 
preparation as in their realization. 

Another innovation, and one which caused a lot of amusement while it lasted, was 
the '06 Minstrel Show. This genuine, all star, black face, aggregation roasted everyone, 
from the powers that be, down to the poor fellow who lost the last car from Holyoke. 
Who can forget the tender tributes to certain members of the faculty in the topical song 
or the agonizing discords of the "Imperial City Quartet." 

Just before college closed, contracts were let out for the building of a new barn 
and a new building to be devoted to Botany. Both of these are now being constructed. 
The landscape has changed hardly any, and when the new barn is completed an alumnus 
can come back and feel at home. He will, however, miss the first thing that used to greet 
his eye, namely the stars and stripes flying from the old flag pole, for after over forty 
years of service it was blown down last November. 

Through the winter we heard rumors from time to time about a new president and 
finally we found out who it was to be. Then the base-ball team went down to Kingston 
and brought back a favorable report of him. In June we caught a glimpse of him on the 
commencement stage. On the first day of college this September we welcomed Kenyon 
L. Butterfield and his policy of the "Square Deal" with all the enthusiasm of which 
an expectant student body is capable. The Inauguration meant little more to many of 
us than did that first morning. Now "Massachusetts" and our new Prexy are well 
started upon another year; the first year, we hope of a new period of glorious activity. 



The New President of the Massachusetts 
Agricultural College 

HEN A COLLEGE seeks a new president it has a difficult task to 
perform, but the trustees of the Massachusetts Agricultural College 
had not only the ordinary difficulties to contend with, but those 
peculiar to a college of its kind. It has mastered these in the 
selection of Kenyon L. Butterfield to take the place of President 

While born in Michigan in 1 868, he comes of old Massachusetts 
Bay stock — the Butterfields and Davidsons. Among the pioneers of Michigan was 
his grandfather, a man prominent in farming and also of experience in the Michigan 
Senate. The new president thus has the pioneer capacity, which is esential in a leader 
in any progressive educational institution. He takes from his father those elements 
and characteristics of agricultural life which are also essential, for the father has been 
a leading farmer of Michigan, a member and secretary of the Board of Agriculture of 
that state, a member of the faculty of the Michigan Agricultural College and is now 
secretary of the Michigan State Agricultural Society, in charge of the State Fair. 

President Butterfield had the experience of a dairy farm, was educated 
in the public schools of Michigan and graduated from the Michigan Agricultural College 
in the agricultural course in 189L with the degree of B. S. He then had an exper- 
ience upon an agricultural periodical. In 1895, he was made superintendent of the farmers' 
institutes of Michigan, and here he met with great success, thoroughly organizing an 
institute system. He was also field agent of the Michigan Agricultural College for a 
number of years. 

The University of Michigan honored itself in 1 902 by admitting him to the degree 
of A. M., as a result of his work in sociology and economics. In the same year, 1902, 
he was made instructor in rural sociology at the University, and in December was elected 
to the presidency of the Rhode Island College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, where 
his ability and fine character have been thoroughly recognized and appreciated. 

President Butterfield has written quite freely, especially on the various phases of 
rural sociology, a matter in which he takes great interest. He has contributed to the 


Outlook, Review of Reviews, the Forum and the American Journal of Sociology. He 
gained considerable reputation and prominence by a paper on The Social Phase of Agri- 
cultural education before the convention of the association of American agricultural 
colleges in Des Momes in 1 904. In the same year he gave one of the two papers read 
before the Congress of Arts and Science, St. Louis, in the section of rural community, on 
'the subject of "The Social Problems of American Farmers." The other paper was 
given by Weber, of Germany. 

The Carnegie Institution of Washington, an institution given to original and scien- 
tific research, organized a department of economics and sociology for the particular 
purpose of preparing or coUectmg the facts for a monumental economic history of the 
United States, and the head of that department, after canvassing many gentlemen sug- 
gested for the division of agriculture, selected president Butterfield as the man most thor- 
oughly fitted and competent to take up so great a work. All who know President Butter- 
field consider him a man of sterling integrity, excellent scholarship, modest and retiring, 
but forceful and efficient, a man of initiative who sees a problem through and has the power 
to carry out his plans connected with it. He is a man possessing the elements of strength 
and growth, a worthy and capable successor of President Goodell. He is a clear thinker 
an excellent writer, and a good speaker. 

It is a great thing for him, a young man only thirty-eight years of age, to have won 
the respect and confidence of his associates in the Rhode Island institution, for they all 
speak of him in the highest terms and are exceedingly sorry to lose him, but they feel that 
his field in Massachusetts will be larger than that in Rhode Island, so they have reluc- 
tantly but very graciously relinquished him to our commonwealth. He has many friends, 
among whom may be counted president Faunce, of Brown University, who speaks in the 
highest terms of him. President Snyder, of the Michigan Agricultural College, predicts 
a brilliant future for President Butterfield, and President Angell, of the University of 
Michigan, commends him as a man, a scholar, and an administrator, well equipped men- 
tally and who is sure to grow. 

Of course. President Butterfield was not an applicant for the position at Amherst. 
He was sought by the trustees and was surprised when the position was tendered him, 
but the trustees had the commendation for President Butterfield of the leaders in agricul- 
tural education, such as Professors Bailey, of Ithaca, Jordan, of Geneva, Jenkins, of New 
Haven, Hills, of Burlington, Wheeler, of Rhode Island and others, all of whom are 
familiar with his steady advance and growth. He combines the elements of the best 
New England stock with the western energy and optimism. 

As indicated, his particular field of study, or that which interests him as much as any, 
is in the sociology of the farm. His syllabus for the proposed work of the Carnegie 
Institution stamps him as most thoroughly imbued with the science he has taken up. He 


appreciates every element of the farmer's life, his work on the land as a forester, and all 
those social and ethical relations of the farmer to society, rural schools, rural churches, — 
everything that can help to make up the true and the grand life for the agriculturists — are 
subjects dear to President Butterfield, and I predict that he will introduce an influence, — 
not new, but invigorating, — which will extend the work and the value and the importance 
of the Massachusetts Agricultural College. 

He will have an active and appreciative coadjutor in Prof. Brooks, who will have 
charge of the experiment station, and these two will give the Amherst institution a pair 
of workers that may be matched somewhere but cannot be surpassed. 

This leads me to predict increased prosperity and enlarged influence for the state of 
Massachusetts. These men, with a good faculty and the equipment at hand, ought to 
convince the old commonwealth that it has not yet been sufficiently liberal in its treatment 
of the agricultural college, and that whatever aid it can be induced to offer will be not 
only appreciated, but discreetly and wisely administered. 


The Agricultural Department 

HE WORK in the Agricultural Department in the Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College is required of all students for the first two years of 
the college course. The selection of subjects during this time is 
determined mainly by two considerations: 

First, the subjects taken up at the outset must be such as require 
on the part of the student the mmimum of preparation in such fund- 
amental sciences as geometry, chemistry and botany. Those which 
pertain to the various classes of live stock seem best to meet this condition and the study 
of these accordingly follows a brief general survey of the history of agriculture. 

Second, so far as the preparation of the students in the abstract sciences make it prac- 
ticable, such subjects are covered during these two years as are most fundamental in 
connection with special branches of agriculture which come later in the college course, 
such as fruit growing and market gardening, taught in the Horticultural Department, 
as well as dairy farming and other subjects taught in the Agricultural Department proper. 
These considerations determine the position assigned the study of soils. 

The work of the last two years is taken only by those students electing agriculture 
and during these years such subjects as agronomy, dairy farming, the science of feeding, 
rural economics and methods and results of agricultural investigation engage the attention 
of students. 

It is the object in the course in agriculture to cultivate in so far as may be possible 
the capacity to observe and to think and reason from observed facts. It is the aim to 
stimulate mental development along these lines as well as to lay the foundation for a 
vocation in some of the many fields open to our graduates. There are three rather dis- 
tinct lines of agricultural employment toward which students of the Massachusetts Agri- 
cultural College may look forward: first, farm management; second, teaching; third, 
experimental work. The student may aim to fit for farm management either as a bus- 
iness conducted on his own account, or as a salaried profession. Men who understand 
the teaching of agriculture are in demand for positions in agricultural colleges, for posi- 
tions in secondary schools and as school superintendents in rural districts. Experimental 
work, already extensive and liberally supported by state and national governments, calls 
for many men and besides the fields of employment to which attention has been called. 


there is one other, already extensive, in the national Department of Agriculture, the Sec- 
retary of which reports it to be difficult to find qualified men for the numerous lines of 
work with which this Department is charged. 

The facilities of the college for teachmg agriculture are extensive, but should be, 
and undoubtedly will be, in the near future greatly extended and improved through the 
provision of new buildings designed for the work of the department. Of particular 
importance in connection with the course of training in so far as this relates to preparation 
for farm management, but importance in other directions as well, is the portion of the 
college estate generally spoken of as the college farm. This includes I 60 acres of im- 
proved land, 40 acres of pasture and 1 6 acres of wood land. With the completion of 
the new buildings, the college farm will be well equipped. The stables and silos will 
illustrate the latest ideas in the construction of such buildings. Both are fire proof. 
The dairy will also be fire proof, the walls being constructed of hollow cement blocks. 
The stables and the dairy have been designed with especial reference to the production 
of milk as nearly germ free as possible. Both will be equipped with the latest and best 
types of equipment and machinery. The farm will be stocked with the best breeds of 
horses, cattle, sheep and swine. Those breeds especially suited to New England con- 
ditions will be most largely represented. All students desiring farm practice are given 
the opportunity to take part in all the various branches of work which are carried on. 
The fields of the farm have been brought to a high state of productiveness and no effort 
is spared to make them teach valuable lessons in connection with all the various phases of 
farm practice. 

The agricultural laboratory is provided with all the latest forms of apparatus for the 
mechanical analysis of soils and for the determination of their physical characteristics. 
Some pieces of apparatus are of original design and undoubtedly superior to any other 
forms used for similar purposes. The laboratory provides facilities for the study of seeds 
and crops. It is also equipped with the apparatus needed for pot experiments. Power 
has been introduced into the laboratory so that farm machinery may be operated for 
purposes of demonstration. 

The department is equipped with a line of instruments for use in drainage and 
irrigation practicums and students electing the subject will be given actual practice in the 
laying out and construction of drains. 

Dairy practice is provided for in a fairly satisfactory manner in basement rooms which 
have been adapted to the purpose. These rooms are equipped with all the latest forms 
of dairy machinery. 

The agricultural museum contains a collection of implements, seeds, plants, fertilizer 
materials, and models of animals all of which are designed to illustrate the theory and 
practice of agriculture. 



The department at present uses one lecture room, with museum attached, and five 
rooms for laboratory and dairy purposes. The work of instruction is shared in by the 
head of the department, an associate professor and an instructor throughout the entire 
year and by three special instructors for the dairy practice. 


Department of Horticulture and Landscape 

N THIS department the work may be classified into three groups, in 
each of which various things are being done. These three kinds of 
work are as follows: 

1 . Teaching. 

2. Experimentation. 

3. College Extension. 

The department is undoubtedly best known through its teaching. 
In the minds of many people this seems to be its only function. While that opinion is 
wrong, the teaching work has in fact usually been the most prominent. 

As at present organized, the teaching work runs in three fairly distinct lines viz: — 

1 . General horticulture. 

2. Floriculture. 

3. Landscape gardening. 


Each one of these subjects practically constitutes a course by itself, although the 
required semester's work in the sophomore year, dealing with the subjects of propa- 
gation and pruning, is taken by all students alike. Aside from this one semester, all 
the work in the department is elective. The general horticulture work consists of courses 
in fruit growing, systematic pomology, commercial pomology, market gardening, arbor- 
iculture, and plant breeding. The floriculture work occupies the senior year and covers 
greenhouse construction, greenhouse management, florists' crop with the propagation, culti- 
vation and management of each, exhibition and scoring of flowers, with a few exercises 
in vegetable gardening under glass. The landscape gardening course includes practical 
work in surveying and mapping, a study of classic designs, the design of grades, road 
design, grouping, planting, the various styles of landscape gardening, reports, estimates 
and contracts, and a thorough drill in the plants used. 

As evidence of the growing interest in these subjects and of the increasing degree in 
which Massachusetts Agricultural College is meeting the demands of the day, it may 
be pointed out that this differentiation of the horticultural work into three groups has 
taken place within the last four years. We may also indulge the hope that the future 
will show equal improvement in otlier directions. 

TTie work of teaching is greatly facilitated, and to some extent improved in quahty, 
by the completion of Wilder Hall. The recitations and lectures can be comfortably 
carried on. The stereopticons give frequent assistance. The laboratories and drafting 
rooms make opportunity for maiiy valuable exercises which formerly had to be omitted 

Besides the regular classroom and laboratory work there are given numbers of field 
exercises, especially in floriculture, arboriculture, and pomology. The weekly seminars 
of the senior class add their share to the value of the training. Moreover every student 
has abundant opportunity (opportunities improved by too few students) to gain practical 
experience by working in the department out of hours. Most of this work is paid for 
at the rate of 12 1-2 cents an hour, but its educational value is enhanced rather than 
diminished by this circumstance. 

The experimental work of the Department of Horticulture is not so well known. 
Nevertheless, one division of the Hatch Experiment Station belongs in this department. 
The principal lines of experiment are three: 

1 . The propagation of fruit trees. 

2. The pruning of fruit trees. 

3. The systematic study of fruits. 

The experiments under the first two heads which have thus far attracted most atten- 
tion are those with dwarf fruit trees. The department has a garden of dwarf fruit trees 
which has borne considerable fruit, large quantities of experience, and one small book. 


Other experiments are being conducted with market garden crops, in plant breed- 
ing, a study of physiological constants, etc. 

The college extension work in which the Department of Horticulture is engaged is 
not so well organized as the teaching or the experimentation; but it is still of consider- 
able present importance and possess great possibilities of future development. Some 
of the more important extension schemes in which the department has recently been 
engaged are as follows: — 

1 . School gardens. 

2. "Better farming" train. 

3. Spraying demonstrations. 

4. Outside lectures. 

5. Journalistic work. 

The department has assisted directly in the school garden work in Amherst, and 
last Spring conducted a school garden institute in Boston. The horticulture branch 
was well represented in the "better farming special" train which covered a large portion 
of Massachusetts last Spring. Several public spraying demonstrations have been held. 
Outside lectures before granges, farmers' institutes and other organizations are fre- 
quently given by all members of the horticultural staff. The experience collected at the 
college, and the results of experiments, are also made known to the public in a somewhat 
regular and systematic manner through contributions to various periodicals. 

The equipment of the department consists of land, buildings, orchards, gardens, 
greenhouses, tools, scientific instruments, etc. There is supposed to be roughly 1 00 acres 
of land on the horticultural side of the college ; but the best surveying instruments now 
available do not discover quite so much. It is extra fine land, what there is of it; but only 
a comparatively small portion of it can be used for crops. Some of it is in forest, part 
of it serves the general purposes of college campus. Wilder Hall has devoured a section. 
Dr. Stone has cribbed some acres; but there is always the resource of intensive cultiva- 
tion to make up for diminishing area. 

The principal buildings of the department are Wilder Hall, the plant houses, the 
stable and tool houses. Of these only the first is modern and satisfactory. Wilder 
Hall can stand any reasonable amount of praise. It is a beautiful, practical, substan- 
tial edifice of brick and terra cotta, containing a surprising amount of room and uncom- 
monly well adapted to the purposes for which it was built. The Durfee plant house 
was the wonder of its day; but its day was contemporaneous with those men whose sons 
are now coming back to college. In the way of tools, scientific instruments and minor 
equipment the department is well provided. The mathematical and surveying instru- 
ments, some of them designed and made especially for our work, are worth a day's 
study any time. 


This recital of the good things belonging to the Department of Horticulture and 
Landscape Gardening must not leave any impression of self-complacency, nor suggest 
the thought that the department managers are in any way satisfied with what they have 
got. There are great improvements yet to be made. The department is to be "bigger, 
busier and better" in every respect, from the size of the cauliflowers down to the salaries 
of the instructors. 

This improvement is to cover every hne of departmental activity. In the way of 
instruction the teaching force is to be strengthened. The courses are to be extended 
and improved, especially in market gardening, forestry and floriculture. The exper- 
imental work will have added support from the fimds appropriated by the Adams bill 
which recently passed Congress. Plans are already formed for important advances 
along this line. In the way of extension work new schemes are already outlined, the 
development of which waits only for a little more time and money. The material equip- 
ment of the department will be increased just as rapidly as the legislature can be con- 
vinced that this is the most important enterprise under the protection of the state. First 
of all an entirely new and modern range of greenhouses is imperatively required. These 
should offer space for the demonstration of violet culture, rose growing, lettuce growing, 
and the management of all the standard glass-house crops under strictly modern com- 
mercial conditions. New tool houses are also an immediate necessity. The next need 
will be for a good fruit house with cold-storage equipment, in which fruit can be handled, 
graded and stored in twentieth century style. 

But what is the use of starting in to tell of the things we want (and expect to have) ? 
Before we get them there will be dozens of other things which will be equally necessary 
in their time and place. We may comfort ourselves with this reflection that, unless there 
should be some radical failure somewhere, the time will never come when there are not 
improvements going forward in the Department of Horticulture with other and greater 
improvements just ahead. 




The Chemical Department 

PORTION OF WORK allotted to this department of the college 
consists of the study of everything which in any way appeals to the 
senses. That is, all kinds of materials. These are especially studied 
with reference to their use in the production of food and shelter for 
man. This is agricultural chemistry. Agricultural chemistry, 
together with all other kinds of chemistry, occupies merely a corner 
in the great domain of physics. With the evolution of the latter, this 
corner continually becomes smaller and smaller, and, as something distinct from physics 
it may ere long entirely vanish, like the " imponderable gases " of the old chemists. 
Students in chemistry need have no fear, however, that their favorite domain is doomed. 
They should know that the field in which they must make themselves, at home, is grad- 
ually becoming more and more extensive. For the time is close upon us when a chemist 
must also be a pretty good electrician, and mechanic as well. He must know not only 
how to watch for colors and smells, but, in addition, how to generate and apply electri- 
city, mechanical and other forms of energy. Not only how to direct the chemical process 
in a mill, for instance, but how to construct the mill itself, in all its manifold equipment. 
Our courses aim to inculcate accurate observation, logical thinking and systematic 
and constant industry, together with a comprehensive knowledge of the subjects taught. 
Instruction is given by text books, lectures, and a large amount of laboratory work under 
adequate supervision. The laboratory work at first consists of a study of the properties 
of elementary matter, analysis of simple combinations, and their artificial preparation. 
This is followed by a quantitative analysis of salts, minerals, soils, fertilizers, animal and 
vegetable products. The advanced instruction takes up the chemistry of various manu- 
facturing industries, especially those of sugar, starch, and dairy products; the prepara- 
tion of animal and plant foods, their digestion, assimilation and economic use; the official 
analysis of fertilizers, fodders and foods; and the analysis of soils, waters, milk, wine, 
and other animal and vegetable products. 
The courses are as follows: 

Freshman ^ear, second half of second semester, four hours a week. General chem- 
istry. Part 1 , principles of chemistry, non-metals. 


Sophomore year, first semester, six hours a week. General chemistry, Part 2, 

Second semester, five hours a week. Subject continued, dry analysis. 

Junior year, first semester, eight hours a week. Qualitative and quantitative analysis, 
organic chemistry. Four hours a week. Special subject. 

Second semester, ten hours a week. Organic chemistry. Five hours a week. 
Special subject. 

Senior year, first semester, three hours a week. Chemical industries. Eight hours 
per week ; quantitative analysis and physical chemistry. 

Second semester, eight hours a week. Advanced work with lectures. 

A special course in dairy chemistry is conducted every winter. 

As soon as adequate facilities are at hand other special courses will be introduced. 
At the present time, in the old laboratory building, it is impossible to arrange for or to 
execute experimental work in agricultural chemistry because of lack of room and of 

CL f.AJ'eMj^L-^ ^^^=i=r'. 


Zoological Department 

HE ZOOLOGICAL DEPARTMENT conducts the courses in 
Physiology, General Zoology, and Geology. 


Freshman year, one half of the second semester, four hours a 
week. The general acquaintance which the student already has, from 
previous work, of the anatomy of the body and the physiology of its 
parts permits of a review of the subject in a short time. The human skeleton is dealt with 
more especially from the standpoint of the fitness of its several parts for the functions of 
the body, with some attention to its more primative and more specialized characters; the 
muscles as modifiers of the skeletal framework, and so forth ; the body, as a whole, as 
a complex system of machinery of which heart, alimentary system, brain, glands, etc., are 
parts; the organs of special sense as connecting links with the world outside the body. 
A few lectures deal with the relation of the organism to the medium in which it lives and 
the effect of function on structure. 

The relations of conduct and exercise to the normal functions of the body are dis- 

Considerable attention is paid to the mechanism of digestion and the changes under- 
gone by food m the alimentary canal, in connection with diet, mastication, and so forth. 

Questions of sanitation such as ventilation, house construction, water supply, disposal 
of sewage and garbage, transmissable diseases, and the hygienic principles involved, are 
dealt with quite fully. 


The courses offered in Zoology include: an introductory course. Zoology II 
Sophomore year; a more advanced course. Zoology III Junior year; a graduate course, 
as a minor for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, Zoology IV. 

Zoology II 
Sophomore year, first semester, two periods per week. The aim of this course is 
to give the zoological part of an elementary course in Biology. It consists of a laboratory 
study of such types as rhizopod, flagellate, ciliate, sponge, campanularian, medusa. 


starfish, annelid, lobster, bivalve, squid, acraniate and vertebrate. Lectures deal briefly 
with related forms, classification, systematic position of forms dissected and principal points 
of interest in each form. This course or its equivalent is a prerequisite to Zoology III. 

Zoology III 
This course includes a suitable amount of lecture and laboratory work. Four per- 
iods per week through the Junior year. A large number of types are dissected. The 
course aims at giving a much more complete knowledge of each group than it was possible 
to obtain in Zoology II. The lectures deal with the comparative morphological features 
in each group and among the different groups; with interrelationships and taxonomic val- 
ues as a foundation for further work in phylogeny. Questions of ecology are empha- 
sized in those groups that have relations with insects, or plants, or the soil, — or which are 
of practical importance in the life and affairs of the commonwealth. Questions of origin, 
adaptation, and development, and kindred topics are discussed. Attention is given to the 
technique of microscopic preparation in connection with the laboratory study of animal 

Advanced Course 
Three semesters, as a minor for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. The work 
here is of a more advanced character. It consists of lecture and laboratory work and 
required reading. The student is expected to undertake the investigation of some pro- 
blem in ecology such as the distribution of seeds by birds, the relations of birds to inseclj, 
the habits, adaptive modifications and practical importance of burrowing mammals native 
to the state, etc; or of some problem connected with sanitation,' or fishing industries, or 
parasitic forms, such as the Myxosporidea and their devastations and life histories, etc. 
Lectures treat of the historic aspect of zoology, ecology, of the various groups from Pro- 
tozoa up, comparative zoology, invertebrate and vertebrate comparative embryology, phy- 
logeny, philosophic zoology, geographic distribution, cytology. Reading is required in 
connection with the lectures. The laboratory work is an examination of types and work 
in histology and embryology. 

Zoological Club 
The zoological club meets once a month for the discussion of papers on various 
topics of zoological interest, and the review of current literature. 

The Museum and Equipment 
The Museum is one of the most complete for its size anywhere to be found. The 
equipment for physiological, zoological, and geological instruction is ample. 



Junior year, second semester, three hours per week. 


The course begins with a consideration of the rock forming minerals and the prin- 
cipal rock types. The crystallography and cleavage of the rock-forming minerals are 
dealt with briefly as an aid to the determination of the constituent minerals in the hand 
specimens and the chemical composition is briefly outlined for the sake of an easier 
understanding of the process of weathering. Then follows a discussion of the igneous rock 
masses and their structural features. Lectures and laboratory work. 

Surface Geology 

Under this caption are considered the destructive processes leading to the breaking 
down of rocks. The mechanical and chemical agencies in the process and the resulting 
changes are all considered. The subject of soils belongs here. The sedimentary rocks are 
also treated here, and the reconstructive processes of swamp and flood-plain making, 
estuarine deposits, tidal marshes and other physiographic phenomena, such as land sculpture, 
river adjustment, erosion cycles and various topographic forms are considered here. 
Laboratory work with topographic maps. 

Stratigraphy in its relation to surface geology is illustrated and discussed. 

Economic Geology 
This deals with rock-masses or mineral deposits of non-metallic character which are 
of practical importance, coal, natural fertilizers, oils, etc. 

Field Geology 
Field work in mapping areas, working out structural features, stream erosion, and 
so forth. 

Historic Geology 
This traces the progress of life on our globe. 

The above sketch has been prepared at my request by Prof. Gordon. 



English Department 

HE ENGLISH DEPARTMENT gladly accepts an invitation to 
speak from the pages of the Index and congratulates the class of 1 908 
on being allowed to bring out its Class publication at a time so full of 
interest in the history of the Massachusetts Agricultural College. We 
are approaching the fortieth anniversary of the opening of the College. 
The hopes of its founders are beginning to be realized, and, although 
the history of these forty years is yet unwritten, a review of their 
prominent events cannot fail to strengthen us for present work and to inspire us with 
lofty ambitions for the future. 

As it is with the College so is it with individual departments. Hence our purpose 
to emphasize a few facts connected with the history of the English Department in the 
Massachusetts Agricultural College. 

The work in English during the first few years of the life of the college was upon 
orations, declamations, and compositions. There were also lectures upon English liter- 
ature. In the seventh annual report of the Trustees, published in January, 1870, there is 
found, among the names of the Faculty, the name of "Henry H. Goodell, Professor of 
English." For the next fourteen years, the same name is found, but with the title, "Pro- 
fessor of Modern Languages," instruction in French and German, as well as in English, 
being a part of Professor Goodell's work. In the twenty-first annual report, published 
in 1884, Prof. Goodell has the title "Professor of Modern Languages and English Lit- 
erature," and "Provisional Instructor of flhetoric and English Composition." From 
1885 to 1888 his title was "Professor of Modern Languages and English Literature." 
In the report of 1888 he has assumed the title, "President and Professor of Modern 
Languages and English Literature," which title he carried until 1890 when the "English 
Literature" was dropped and thereafter he was "President" and "Professor of Modern 

It will be seen, therefore, that during the first twenty-three years of the history of 
the college the work in English was planned and directed by one man. He brought to 
it cultivated taste, accurate scholarship and inspiring enthusiasm. He laid broad and 
stable foundations for the department of English in this college; his ideal for the super- 
structure was high and not easily reached. 


During the last seventeen years the work of the English Department has been con- 
ducted along the lines of written and oral expression and of familiarity with some of the 
master-pieces of English and American literature. The history of the English language 
and literature is receiving more and more attention, and the principles of argumentation 
have practical illustration. The Department holds strongly to the idea that young men 
need to learn the art of writing clearly and vigorously and of being able to express their 
thoughts in public speaking so as to interest, to convince and to persuade. They need, 
too, to share in that liberal culture which comes from the discovery of the jewels hidden 
in "Kings' Treasuries." Especially do the graduates of our Agricultural Colleges need 
this training if they are to become leaders in that work of bettering the conditions of life 
in our rural communities for which there is such crying need, and responsibility for which 
lies pre-eminently at the door of the Agricultural College.

Department of Veterinary Science 

URING THE PAST twenty-five or thirty years the subject of medi- 
cine, both human and vetermary, has undergone a complete revolution. 
These changes have resulted from a study of the modern science of 
bacteriology through which we have become familiar with the nature 
and life history of the causes of many of the infectious diseases for- 
merly shrouded in deep mystery. Many of the diseases belonging to 
this class, that were formerly supposed to be due to the influences of 
unfavorable surroundings, are now known to be caused by specific organisms or their 
products of which we possess a definite knowledge regarding their morphology, environ- 
ment and chemistry. This knowledge enables us to attack the organism or its product 
in such a manner that it is either prevented from gaining access to the body or its effects 
are neutralized or counteracted in the system so that the occurrence of the disease is 
prevented or is quickly cured. 

The highest aim of modern medicinal science is the prevention of disease. The pos- 
sibilities in this direction are fully as much, if not more, in the hands of those who have 
to deal with the individual when in health as when under the control or direction of the 
medical practitioner whose services are not, as a rule, sought until disease has made its 
appearance. To cure disease then is one of the chief functions of the practitioner; to pre- 
vent it is of greater concern to the layman. Most of our farm animals start out in hfe 
with a strong constitution and a clean bill of health. By the proper application of the 
rules of modern animal hygiene it is possible to maintain this condition in them. One 
of the principle objects of having a course in Veterinary Science taught in an agricultural 
college (where students are not graduated as veterinary practitioners) should be to so 
famiharize the student with the nature of the cause, course, and effect of disease as to 
enable him to prevent its occurrence or to avoid its ill effects when this can be accom- 
plished in a simple manner. 

In the arrangement of the courses of instruction in the Veterinary department in 
Massachusetts Agricultural College this important phase of the work has been kept in view 
and carried out, without, in too great a measure, neglecting the demands of prospective 
students of human and veterinary medicine. It is the intention to teach more of funda- 
mental principles of medical science, rather than too many of the details of special path- 
ology or surgery. To accomplish the purpose in a most satisfactory manner, two lines of 
work have been taken up, a course in Veterinary Science proper and a general course in 


In the former course, instruction is given in veterinary hygiene, veterinary anatomy 
and physiology, general pathology, materia medica, minor surgery and practice of medicine. 
The course in Bacteriology covers the subjects of the classification of bacteria, methods of 
growth, spore formation, spore germination, environment of bacteriology, chemistry of the 
same and their relation to such phenomena as fermentation, putrefaction, pigment pro- 
duction, production of disease, prevention and cure of the same, nitrification in the soil, 
relation of bacteria to the dairy, etc. To carry on these two lines of work advanta- 
geously the department has been provided through the generosity of the legislature, with a 
commodious laboratory and hospital stable, with the necessary equipment for the same, 
consisting of miscroscopes, incubator, miscrotomes and other valuable scientific apparatus 
and material for laboratory study or demonstration purposes. 




Mathematical Department 

NUMBER OF SUBJECTS which are more or less related, are 
in charge of this department, and the object sought to be ac- 
complished is dependent to a certain extent upon the character of the 
subject. During the freshman year instruction is given in algebra, 
solid geometry and plane trigonometry. The primary object of this 
training is to familiarize the student with those portions of the subjects 
which are necessary for a proper understanding of a number of studies 
which come later in the course. The main object then is utilitarian, that is to familiar- 
ize the student with tools which he must subsequently use. The educational and culture 
value of the instruction is however never lost sight of. Logical thinking and the develop- 
ment of the reasoning powers of the student are sought by the instructor in the presentation 
of the subjects. The instruction also aims to train the student in conciseness of expression 
and to emphasize the necessity of accuracy. 

The course in analytic geometry and calculus given as an elective in the junior year 
embraces only as much of those subjects as are necessary for a proper understanding of any 
but the most elementary portions of physics, chemistry and the applications of mechanics 
to construction. The drill afforded by these subjects in mathematical processes is of 
great value in affording the student a mastery of the mathematics of the freshman year. 
The very limited time allowed to physics in the curriculum, and the absence of any 
facihties for laboratory instruction cause the instruction to be confined to the presentation 
of only the most fundamental parts of the subject. The department especially regrets the 
adverse conditions under which it is obliged to present such important subjects as mechan- 
ics and electricity and its inability to give even an elementary laboratory course. 

The course in surveying is designed to acquaint the student with the use of the 
compass, transit and level, so that he may be able to perform the ordinary problems of land 
surveying and drainage. 

The aim of the instruction in civil engineering is to qualify the student for immediate 
usefulness in the field in the subordinate positions, and also acquaint the student with the 
principles of a few of the most important divisions of the subject. Especial attention is 
given to the courses in road construction and earthwork on account of their prominence in 
landscape engineering. The courses in strength of materials, elementary structures, 
hydraulics and foundations are given considerable attention. The student is also given 
considerable drill in the use of the surveying instruments adapted to topographic and land- 
scape work. 





The Botanical Department 

HE OBJECT in the course in botany is to teach those topics pertaining to 
the science which have a bearing upon economic and scientific agri- 
cuhure. The undergraduate work extends through six semesters. 

In the freshman year the work consists of a study of the histology 
and physiology of the higher type of plants, including a study of the 
minute structure of the plant organisms, such as stems, roots, leaves, 
seeds, etc., together with their functions and their chemical and phys- 
ical properties; followed by a study of the relationship of plants, their gross structure and 
extensive individual practice in flower analysis. An herbarium of 200 species of plants 
is required. 

In the junior year the study of the lower forms of plant life is taken under the head 
of cryptogamic botany, followed by a course in pathological and physiological botany in 
which the common fungus diseases of crops are studied and methods of prevention and 
control discussed. The plant's functions as related to susceptibility to diseases are also 

Plant pathology and physiology are taken up in the senior year. This year's work 
is adapted to the requirements of students who desire a more detailed knowledge of plant 
diseases and plant physiology. Each student works along the lines which will aid him 
most in after life. The diseases and care of green-house plants, garden crops, farm crops, 
shade trees or orchard trees, etc., are taken up according to the individual needs or tastes of 
the student. Tree surgery is an important feature of the work. 

A graduate course of one year and a half leading to the degree of Master of Science 
is given in which the work may be listed as general and special botany, and special prob- 
lem work. 

The degree of Doctor of Philosophy is given after a three years' graduate course, 
which includes a special problem for investigation and courses in physiology, pathology, 
mycology, ecology, taxonomy, histology, history of botany and the theories of evolution. 
A monthly botanical conference is held for the senior and post-graduate students at which 
subjects of either a botanical nature or of general interest are discussed. 

Heretofore the department has been handicapped by lack of facilities, but Clark 
Hall, now in course of construction, has been designed to meet the exacting requirements 
of the department, and as soon as completed will place the department of botany in a 
position to handle easily and completely the work required to give a thorough training in 
this important science. 



Department of Entomology 

NSECTS ARE THE CAUSE of much financial loss in nearly every 
occupation followed by man. Particularly is this true in the various 
lines of agriculture, where it is conservatively estimated that over four 
hundred million dollars worth of crops is lost by their attacks each 
year, while this sum is frequently doubled by an unusual abundance of 
one kind of insect or another. 

Much of this loss can be avoided by proper methods of treatment 
applied at the right times and in the right ways and with this in view the general subject 
of insects, their lives, habits, injuries, and the best methods of control is taken up during 
the last half of the Junior year. 

Such a course must be very general in its nature, however, and in the Senior year the 
subject is also offered as an elective. During this year the work is mainly individual in 
its nature, being arranged to best meet the needs of each one taking it. The student who 
plans to become a fruit grower studies the insects which attack fruit and fruit trees, 
learning to recognize these and their work during all stages of their growth, how to pro- 
tect his trees from their attacks and the best methods for their destruction when they are 
already present. The would-be market gardener investigates the insects attacking market 
garden crops in a similar way; the florist learns of green-house pests and the future 
teacher of nature studies learns of the insects most important in all the different hnes of 

For the future physician careful training in anatomical and histological methods is 
available, and a careful study of structure and cell is made. Insects affecting stock are 
considered by those who expect to take up stock raising or dairying, and in each line the 
student specializes with direct reference to his future occupation. 

The ravages of insects have greatly increased during the last half century. Not only 
have we our native pests to contend with but over a hundred kinds of foreign ones have 
rc=iched this country. This has resulted in a demand for speciaUsts in Economic or 
Applied Entomology, either as State or Experiment Station Entomologists or as busmess 
men caring for trees and other plants on large and small estates. Such men need a more 
thorough and extended knowledge than can be given in the time available durmg an under- 
graduate course, and to meet the increasing demand for these experts, graduate courses of 
a year and a half and of three years have been established for the purpose of giving to 


such men the requisite training. In these courses two subjects, — a major and a minor, — 
are required, the major subject occupying twenty hours and the minor subject averaging 
from twelve to sixteen hours each week. At the end of a year and a half of this work 
the M. S. degree may be obtained by passing examinations and presenting a satisfactory 
thesis containing original work. Another year and a half, the minor subject now being 
a different one from that first taken, followed by examinations and a satisfactory thesis, 
entitles the student to the Ph. D. degree. With entomology as his major subject the 
student in such a course may choose from botany, zoology, chemistry or horticulture, which 
two he will take as minors and thus select those more directly applicable to the particular 
lines of his future occupation. 

Such a course as this provides a thorough training for men of ability, and the demand 
for such thoroughly educated specialists has thus far exceeded the supply. In fact, many 
who have begun the course have felt it necessary to leave before completing it, to accept 
offers which they believed they could not afford to refuse.

Military Department 

HILE THERE is yet a great deal to be done to make the Military 
Department all that could be desired, it is felt that improvement has 
been made and that a great deal more will be accomplished in the 
future. It is believed that students. Faculty and Trustees are becom- 
ing more and more convinced that a proper course of training along 
military lines is an excellent thing. Excellent because of its training 
along lines of discipline, because of its great benefit from physical 
exercise given and because it trains each year a number of men who in time of national 
peril could take hold and help train the volunteer armies that might be needed. 

It is not felt that Military drill is given the time that might well be granted to it. 
At present the battalion only has three drills each week. A daily exercise would be of 
great value. The importance of regular daily exercise under intelligent direction, cannot 
be overestimated and nothing else conduces so perfectly to effect this as military drill under 
a competent instructor. The military drill produces an erect and graceful carriage, and 
a manly and self-respecting bearing towards others. Nor is there any element of training 
which so cultivates the habits of regularity, neatness of person and quarters, promptness, 
obedience, and self-control, as the military discipline. Under this training, stooping forms 
become erect, narrow chests expand, an uncertain and shuffling gait becomes steady and 

During the past year the War Department has allowed the College to turn in the 
old and obsolete Springfield Cadet Rifles and have issued in their place the new and 
modern Krag-Jorgensen magazine rifles. No better rifle is made and it is to be regretted 
that we have no suitable rifle range on which to hold target practice, the old range 
being condemned last spring as not safe. In the near future it is to be hoped that a new 
and larger range will have been erected. 


The military instruction has covered substantially the same ground as in previous 
years. Cadets have shown even more than their usual interest in the various drills and 
it has been possible to attain a higher degree of precision and to cover the ground more 
thoroughly than in the past. The Commandant has been particularly pleased and 
gratified by the marked faithfulness and efficiency that has been uniformly displayed by 
the cadet officers and non-commissioned during the present semester. These young gentle- 
men have in almost every case appeared to the Commandant to have been constantly act- 
uated by a high sense of duty and as a body to have had a thorough understanding of the 
responsibilities and obligations of their positions. 

For the purposes of discipline and practical military instruction, the Battalion is 
divided into three companies, a staff, and band. The Cadet officers are chosen from 
those Cadets who have been most exemplary in conduct, and most soldierly in bearing, 
and who are proficient in their College work. Thus feeling that he has the support of 
the college authorities and being placed on his honor properly to discharge the duties of 
his position, a Cadet Officer becomes an efficient aid in the maintenance of discipline, and 
reports such breaches of regulations as come under his notice, for the most part, without 
antagonizing the Cadets reported. The importance of having the Battalion officered by 
the most faithful and efficient of its Cadets cannot be overestimated, for through them 
the greater part of the discipline and instruction of the Corps has to be effected. To this 
end it is usually required that a Cadet shall have served two years, at least, before receiving 
a commissioned office, and at least one before receiving an appointment to any non- 
commissioned grade, and that he shall pass satisfactorily both theoretical and practical 
tests of his efficiency. 

Military drills as conducted in this department, are found to be as valuable in teach- 
ing the Cadet self-control, alertness, and thoroughness, as they are beneficial as an exercise. 
Implicit obedience and close attention are required, and executing command after command 
the Cadet soon becomes, perhaps without even special effort on his part, subordinate and 
well disciplined. Thoroughness, precision, and the closest observance of details are 
insisted upon; no improperly executed movement is permitted to go uncorrected, and being 
taught to undei stand that the general efficiency of the Battalion is determined by its weak- 
est men, and that each Cadet is individually responsible for the general excellency of the 
command, the Cadet becomes interested in seeing how well he can execute each move- 
ment, and how much his individual efforts can contribute to the general efficiency of his 
company. Friendly rivalry between the companies is encouraged in various ways. 

The facilities for Drill and General Military Instruction at the College are not all 
t'lat could be desired. For indoor drill the present hall is entirely too smal'. During 
the winter all sorts of devises are resorted to to keep all Cadets busy. The gallery 
practice room has however, been improved by adding more targets and will greatly 




facilitate that practice. Owing to the large increase in attendance, the present parade 
ground is hardly large enough for the ceremonies and is entirely inadequate for battalion 
drills. During the winter months, when the condition of the weather prevents out-door 
work, the drill hours are largely devoted to gymnastic exercise. Butts' Manual of Phy- 
sical Drills, as approved by the Secretary of War for the use of the regular army, has 
been adopted for the use of the Corps, with gratifying results. The variety offered by 
these exercises, and the musical accompaniment, make them especially pleasing, and care 
is taken to prevent distaste resulting from fatigue. 

The scope of military instruction includes Infantry drill in the school of the soldier, 
school of the company, school of the battalion, battle exercises and all the ceremonies. 
In Artillery, the school of the cannoneer and mechanical movements; Rifle practice in 
nomenclature of the Rifle, and its care and preservation. Position, Aiming, Sighting and 
Estimating Distance Drills, Gallery Practice, and Practice on the Range. The band 
is trained by an experienced band leader and musician who devotes two hours each week 
to this instruction. Theoretical Instruction is given as prescribed for Colleges of Class 
B in G. O. No. 101 War Department, Washington, June 25th, 1905, by means of 
text and lectures; in the drill regulations, principles of military science and ordnance and

Naughty Eight On The War 

" Challenge's up," a Freshman shouted. 

From the door-way of North College. 

And the news flew round among them 

That before another sunset 

They must play a game of football. 

With their mortal foes, the Sophomores. 

And they played the game and lost it. 

Griltily they played, but fortune 

Smiled upon their adversaries. 

But 'tis not to football memories 

That I dedicate this story. 

But to wild events that happened 

On the night and morn preceding. 

While the tired Sophomores slumbered, 

Wearied by the hours of practice, 

They had spent in preparation 

For the game upon the morrow, 

Forth the verdant Freshmen sallied, 

Armed with paint pots and with brushes, 

And their numerals boldly painted 

On the walks and on the goal posts; 

While the workmen's shed up yonder, 

Where Chief Waugh's new lodge was building 

Bore the hideous numbers, stretching 

Full six feet from top to bottom. 

And around them and among them, 

Like a guide-board filled with bird shot, 

Smaller ones were intermingled. 

Now, when rose the sun next morning. 
Sore displeased were all the Sophomores, 
And wild shouts and yells ascended, 
Mixed with threats and imprecations. 
And they soon were on the warpath; 
Out for blood were they, and vengeance. 

Soon some artists they selected. 
From among the passing Freshmen, 
And ere long the face of nature 
Smiled in grateful approbation; 
For each nine was changed in contour 
By the skillful Freshman artists 
To an eight, that shone upon us 
From the workmen's shed up yonder, 
By the side of Waugh's new tepee, 
Visible to all the valley. 



Next the party travelled townward, 
Down to where the trails are blended, 
Just below the humble wigwam 
Of the great chief Billy Hasbrouck. 
Here upon the sidewalk glarmg 
Was more work of the marauders. 
Even the black lar walk looked grateful 
When the Freshman paint-brush wielders 
Had closed in the lower circle 
Left before so widely gaping. 

Next in order came the goal-posts, 
Well besmeared with Freshman symbols, 
On the posts, and on the cross-bars. 
Tired were the first few artists 
By their long, sustained exertion. 
And the cry was raised for others 
Who might shinny up the goal-posts 
And paint out the offending numerals, 
Some obeyed without contention ; 
But one, sullenly dechning 
To proceed as he was bidden 
Felt strong hands upon his shoulders, 
And a wrathful band of Sophomores 
Bore him like a Kansas cyclone 
Downward to the pond so slimy, 
Known as Freshman Purgatory. 

Meagre was the ceremony. 
Short the time of expectation. 
Far out on the placid waters. 
With a mightly splash he landed. 
While a war-cry woke the echoes- 
Meanwhile from his lofty tower. 
Shaking fist and shouting warnings. 
And dire threats and imprecations. 
Leaned the mighty chief, Ostrander, 
He so great with chain and transit; 
Black his face and flushed with passion. 
With his anger at the outrage. 
Back the dripping victim hurried. 
And, lest rheumatism catch him. 
His speed was accelerated 
By the war-club's vigorous usage. 
As once more the band was gathered 
On the campus near South College, 
Two great chiefs came forth to parley 
And to talk the matter over. 

Full of wrath was chief Ostrander, 

And a cloud seemed darkening o'er us, 

But the other chief was greater. 

And his reasoning was wiser. 

And Quite soon the strife was settled, 

And the hatchet and the war-clubs 

Laid aside for future battles. 

And once more peace dwelt among us. 


A Pea Green Freshman 

There are always a few Freshmen who overrate themselves in their work and make 
themselves out a hero too soon. A letter which was found on one of the desks in room 
23 North College will plainly show that this Freshman had put much diligent work up- 
on Teddy's new "fonetik" spelling. 

Amherst, Mas.

The Tour of the Faculty 

The following account was found in the archieves of the Chapel ; The tour was out- 
lined by Longfellow. 

They left 'T/ie Beleagured City" by the "Light of the Stars," and wended their 
way to "The Terrestrial Paradise," guided by "The Celestial Pilot." After walking 
into "TomorroTv" never thinking of "Sleep" they saw beneath "The Hemlock Tree" 
"The Child Asleep" dreaming of "The Happiest Land" and watched over by "The 
Cood Shepherd" and "The Black Night," Prof. Howard immediately suggested singing 
the "Song of the Bell" to "Beatrice" "The Child Asleep." 

After rendering that selection they journeyed on "To the River Charles," singing 
"Remorse." Following along the banks of the river and listening to "The Slave in the 
Dismal Sivamps," singing the "Wanderer's Night Songs" and becoming tired of "the 
murmuring pines and hemlocks," they soon found themselves in the vicinity of "Boston." 

They journeyed onward until they found themselves near'T/ie Castle by the Sea," 
which upon investigation by Philip was found to be the "Wayside Inn." Here they 
sat down to a hearty meal and after sipping a little "Cataivba Wine" from "The Cohlel 
of Life" and singing the "Drinking Song" they unanimously agreed to retire. On the 
way to their room which was "The Haunted Chamber" they passed "The Old Clock 
on the Stairs." Seated upon the sill of "The Open Window" the never sweet quartet 
rendered a song entitled "The Day is Done" by "Sir Humphrey Gilbert." The twink- 
ling of "The Evening Star," attracted the attention of Johnny and as he called them all 
over to see the rare phenomena Dr. Paige tipped over "The Sand of the Desert in an 
Hour Glass." 

After the faculty had quieted they were sung to sleep by "The Singers." They 
dwoke at "Daybreak" much refreshed and eager for the sights around the Hub. 

At the breakfast table they enjoyed "The Sermon of Si. Francis," entitled "Three 
Friends of Mine" and then it was suggested by Dr. Stone that they take "Paul Reveres 
Ride." This did not meet with the approval of all as some wanted to see "The Haunted 
Houses" and "The Statue over the Cathedral Door" stuffed with "Excelsior" while others 
had a pressing desire to see the paintings of "King Robert of Sicily," "Hawthorne" and 
"The House of Epimitheus." But "Tabby" knowing that there would be "Children's 
Hour" at the Public Library suggested that they pass "A Summer's Day by the Sea." 
This met with the approval of all and they decided in favor of Tabby. After arriving 
at the sea shore it was suggested that "The Phantom Ship" be chartered and take a sail 


to Plymouth. This was done and in a short time the good ship went bounding over 
"The IVaves" with "The Discoverer of the North Cape" as a pilot and "The Belfry 
of Bruges" as a landmark, "The Four Winds" blew from the "Souse East" and the 
merry throng was seated upon the top of the cabin singing "Over the Bounding IVaves," 
and telling stories of "The Boy and the Brook" of "The Revenge of Rain in-the-Face," 
and "The Secret of the Sea." 

Soon "The Lighthouse" loomed up like ancient "Olympus" or "The Tower of 
Prometheus on Mount Caucasus," and they saw the "Children" around "The Fire of 
Drift Wood." 

This was Plymouth harbor and the pilot put the ship up into the wind and the 
faculty stepped gently one after another in the tender "Endymion" and were rowed ashore 
by Cooley with "The Broken Oar." 

Landing upon the beach, Osmun went searching for algae known as Fucus, a species 
of "SeaTveed." Prof. Gordon in hunting for snails found a pretty little shell and 
exclaimed "The Sea hath its Pearls." 

Now the merry makers made their way up "The Rope Walk" to "The Golden 
Mile Stone" and they all sat down to rest. 

During the few moments of rest Prof. Mills and Mr. Holcomb had a warm dis- 
cussion over "Youth and Age" and the subject was interrupted by Prof. Brooks who 
suggested that they go to "Woodstock Park" 3n<i see the statues of "John Alden" and 
"Priscilla" while Prof. Waugh related the few stories connected with their "Love and 
Friendship" and "The March of Miles Slandish." 

After plotting the park and noting the different trees Prof. Waugh made the motion 
that they embark, as he saw "The Warden of the Cinque Ports" coming and thought 
"The Warning" was sufficient. 

After partaking of a light lunch below they all congregated on deck again ready 
for the sail back to "Boston." 

It was now "Twilight" and the jolly crew were homeward bound. 

On their way out they saluted "The Cumberland" with "The Bells of Lynn" and 
started in singing again, while Prof. Goessmann was relating the story of "My Lost Child- 

When they arrived in "Boston" it was "Moonlight" and the "Bells of San Bias" 
tolled them that it was time to hasten to "The Meeting" of "The Children's Crusade." 

After the meeting they returned to "The Haunted Chamber" and discussed the 
enjoyable trip. "There is 'Something left Undone' " said Prof. Neal. "Yes" spoke 
up Ach Looey "We did not see 'The Building of the Ship' but is too late now. Let us 
return to Amherst." 




Between Periods 

Under the shade of the sheltering trees, 
A group of forms is seen. 
Some are fat, some are short. 
Some are tall and lean. 

Some smoke their pipes of joy and peace 
Some lie there fast asleep; 
A few discuss their m.orning's work 
And the tens they did not reap. 

Then all too soon is heard the bell. 
That does so loudly ring 
And then to all the thought does come 
"How fine are the days of spring." 

A Few do This. 

TKc cuolut.on Of t^e 'College Sto. 


Kid to class: "You see this is yellow" (holds bottle of liquid before window) and 
here it is green" (holds bottle in front of himself) 

Chapman '08 in class meeting: "We and the rest of the faculty " 

Freshman to Paige '08 during scrap between Sophomore and Freshmen: "Here, 
hold my glasses while I get into the scrap with the Sophomores." 

Daddy Mills to class when Pandora enters: "I hope we shall not have any evidence 
of the introduction of a new language." 

Captain Martin, addressing guard posted near to bath room in Drill Hall: "You 
must see that no one takes a bath without turning on the water." 


Spring Fever 

When the days are getting longer. 

And the river's running free. 
And the buckets are a-hanging 

On the sugar maple tree; 
We know the snow is melting 

On the North side of the camps. 
Scattered o'er the ridge of Toby, 

And we long for springtime tramps. 

Just forget the coming hours 

Glarmg on the schedule card. 
It won't do to study lessons 

When the fever strikes you hard. 
When all Nature seems to beckon. 

You must answer to the call. 
Go and learn what she can teach you 

'T'will beat Math, Dutch, French, and all. 

Start some morning bright and early. 

Throw all thought and care away. 
Tramp until you're good and hungry. 

Buy some grub along the way, 
Test the new made maple syrup. 

While your at the sugar camp. 
You may find some early May flowers 

For a souvenir of your tramp. 

When the shadows swing to eastward 

And the air begins to chill. 
Then its time to hustle homeward 

And of supper get your fill. 
Don't sit up, just turn in early. 

Rest your weary legs and brain. 
You are safely through the fever 

Till the longing comes again. 


Howe a Wholley Execution was Made 

At the stroke of eight. 
You will know your fate. 
For Howe are you to die ; 
Be Wholley there 
And hear the prayer, 
While others are nearby. 

With a man named Jones 

To tie the bones. 

While a bag on his head was put. 

With Ingall's tie 

Which laid nearby 

Howe was bound hand and foot. 

With life and hope 
And Raz at the rope 
The drop he did have to go; 
With a signal from Red, 
Standmg near his head. 
His body swung to and fro. 

With a man all Wright, 

In the midst of night 

A picture he did take. 

A wink from Shag, — ■ 

Off came the bag, 

And behold ! it was all a fake. 






Those Bills of Daddy's 

Oh, I wish I had a miUion, yes, perhaps, a thousand biUion, 
To pay the bills as they come slowly, slowly from upon the hills: 
For I worried about my dinner, every day a-growing thinner. 
And I never was a winner, because I had a bunch of bills 
To be paid to "Daddy" Mills. 

Then I felt my ribs a raving, on account of my money saving 
And my palate had a craving, for a juicy oyster stew: 
And the bills, still a running, kept on coming, coming, coming. 
Till the pockets in my trousers, with the bills marked overdue 
Burst the shabby linings through. 

Surely I lasted till September, and t'is then that I remember 
How the bills still kept a coming, yes a coming from the hills : 
What a lesson it was teaching, and how low was Daddy preaching 
As my hand went slowly reaching, for the nice new crispy bills 
Just to pay dear "Daddy" Mills. 

Now no more bills am I a paying and in my room I feel like staying 
While dear Daddy still is sending, yes a sending all my bills. 
But the bills they will diminish, for if not I see my finish 
And the boys will call me Dinnis and it all adds to my ills 
Which were caused by "Daddy" Mills. 

But now my troubles are all over and my heart is wreathed in clover 
And as"Daddy" held his paw, he surely cleaned me, cleaned me, dry. 
Now I find the path a winding, and I see the boys a dining 
And the bills no more I'm minding, but I slowly heave a sigh 
Waiting for them bye and bye. 



Prof. Hasbrouck: "Now, Browne you haven't any breath to waste on this nor 
have I. If anyone doesn't understand this I want him to say so." 

Pandora (the dog, lying near the radiator in rear of room) :"R-r-r-r-r." 

Chase (in final "exam." in Physics, raising his hand) : "What is that under 
'How' ?" 

Prof. Hasbrouck (looking at the word indicated) ; "That's water." 
Howe looks under his seat and everyone laughs. 

Prof. Holcomb: "Mr. Chase, what is economics?" 
.Chase: "Er',-economics is the relation of men to women." 

Eastman pauses in recitation upon the love poems of the 1 6th century.

THE 1908 INDEX VOLUME xxxvlll 

1908 Individual Records 

Charles Francis Allen. This busy and hard-plugging youth first began his course 
of events in the city of Worcester, sometime in January, 1 886. He is a graduate of 
the EngHsh High School, but never let his mind lead him to athletics. He was treas- 
urer of the class in his freshman year, and is an honorary 
member of the Sons of Rest. Charlie is a member of the 
C. S. C, and is often known around College as "Dr." 
"Fat," "Bottle," "Pinkey," or "Librarian." 
'Bottle" is a great one for the ladies, often going to Smith 
on a fudge party. Very few can lose him, and he is a 
loyal rooter. If there were a ping-pong team or a marble 
team, Charles might make good, but as it is, he will have to 
continue making his letters in books. Charlie is going to 
try to take horticulture and landscape. We wish him suc- 

John Albert Anderson. Was born in West Brookfield, July 1, 1884. By his 
courses in math, he is able to figure his age and finds it to be 2 1 years. When Albert 
was a "little feller" he lived in North and West Brookfield. Having played foot-ball 
and being a star runner, he easily found himself a very pop- 
ular alumnus of the N. B. H. S. Albert is a member of 
the "S" club of "'08" and by his muscular appearance 
made the class rope-pull and foot-ball teams. He is a 
member of the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity, and plays Var- 
sity Football. 

By his upright stature and military tread he has assumed 
the names of "Major," "Blokey" and by his democratic 
spirit and gold tooth smile for all, he acquired the name of 
"Andy." "Blokey" is a fine fellow, very seldom mingling 
with the fair sex, although it is known that he has frequen- 
ted Westfield somewhat. For his love of nature and roam- 
ing disposition "Blokey" is going into landscape. 


Kenneth French Anderson. This good-natured and ever-obliging youth was 
born in Cambridge sometime before the 23rd of June, 1887. He has hved in Cam- 
bridge, RosHndale, and Boston and attended the West Roxbury High School. Owing 
to his "not yet but soon" style, he never ventured into any 
athletics, but he stands a fine chance of making the dough- 
nut team as he never eats the holes. Having found the 
easy-going, swinging, side wheeler so obliging and so honest 
in all his efforts, "Bush" or rather "Shylock" gave him the 
honor of being store-keeper when he was out on business. 
"Sleuth" is a terrible sport, having bet ten or fifteen cents 
on every class game since he came to M. A. C. 
"Sleuth," "Teeter," "Creeper," or "Mossy Head" as you 
prefer, will study agriculture. 

Ernest Winfield Bailey. Was first captured in Worcester, Mass., March 28, 
1885. "Ernnie" claims that he is 21 years of age, but all the co-eds are of an adverse 
opinion. After successfully passing through the grammar schools and the Worcester 
South High School, "Bill" flipped the coin and decided to 
enter M. A. C. with '08. This was a lucky move, for if 
little Bill had ever got mixed up with any smaller classes, 
his lady-like complexion and nice silky hair would have 
undergone a terrible transformation. 

"Bill" belongs to the Kappa Sigma fraternity, the Man- 
dolin and Stockbridge Clubs, and the Water Cure Society, 
and he is a member of the Y. M. C. A. This name "Bill" 
originated from the song of "Bill Bailey," which was one 
of the first he ever played on his mandolin. "Bill" has 
a quiet disposition and keeps away from all roughness. 
He was once a famous basket-ball player on the girls' team 
at High School, and made his winning smile playing "cro- 
chet" with the ladies. "Bill" is taking "wheat." 



Bradley Wheelock Bangs. Uttered his first war-hoop in Amherst, July 3, 1885. 
Always having a desire to obtain knowledge, and to make something from nothing, 
sometime, somewhere, he entered with '08 and has never been sorry. Bradley grad- 
uated from the Amherst High School with high honors, 
having taken all the medals (from Millett's to the school) 
on the evening of graduation. Bradley is a member of the 
C. S. C. He is often called "Bud" or "Big Beagle" and 
delights in trimming "Little Beagle" in pool. "Bud" 
pulled on the Class Rope Pull Team. 
As "Bud" was born the day before the 4th, we can readily 
see why he takes so much enjoyment in hunting, fishing, and 
the' like. He is a regular huntsman, and has succeeded 
in killing nearly all the big game, such as sparrows, 
squirrels and "suckers" around Amherst. "Bud," think- 
ing he stands in with "the Kid" and "Billy," is going to 
elect chemistry. 

Thomas Addis Barry. The easy-going chap with the blue eyes and pink cheeks was 
born in Southwick, Mass., Nov. 18,, 1885. Not satisfied here, he moved about in a 
restless disposition until finally he landed in Amherst. Having a good-sized head and 
plenty of room for knowledge he reaped what he could from 
Hopkins Academy and the Northampton and Amherst 
High Schools. Thinking that he did not know it all yet, 
he decided to polish up at the M. A. C. 
"Beagle" is quite a boy, having been president of the class 
during the freshman year, toastmaster at the freshman ban- 
quet, captain of the class sophomore foot-ball team, and 
tried real hard for the Varsity. On account of his bus- 
iness-like appearance and his "graft" at figures, "Tom" 
was chosen the assistant manager of the base-ball team. 
"Johnnie, "knowing his qualities as a "bluffer," chose him 
to "bluff" out the weather report each day. He is above 
us all now, as he rooms in the Tower, and always has room 
for another on a "stormy" night. "Tom" is a member of 
the C. S. C. and will elect math." 


Persis Bartholomew. In this promising young lady we have another chaperon and 
mother for 1 908. Although not entering with us she had the ability and perservance to 
skip a peg and join our merry throng. She was born in Melrose Highlands, November 
27, 1885. After preparmg for a higher education at the 
Melrose High School and Simmons College she came to 
M. A. C. for a specialty in the Horticulture profession. 
Miss Bartholomew is a very noted hostess and entertainer 
and whenever the select few go calling they are always wel- 
comed with a freezer of ice cream or a box of fudge. 
She is a member of the Peek-a-Boo Fraternity. She and 
Miss Turner being the Charter Members. 

Carleton Bates. This good looking(?) youth first learned the art of house keeping 
in Salem, Mass., May 12, 1886. "Willie" was born in a very witchy city and he 
retains some of the ancient qualities as yet. He entered the Salem High School in i 900 and 
after four years he received a good liberal education. 
"Willie" played on the class base ball, basket ball, and 
foot ball teams and used his head at critical times. 
"Willie" has a pull with Prof. Mills and succeeded in 
procuring a janitorship. He is a second John McLane 
and any Saturday morning you will find him hunting 
through the waste boxes for relics to decorate his room. 
He is a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity and is study- 
ing chemistry. 


Lloyd Warren Chapman. Practically the oldest of the Pepperell tribe now at M. 
A. C. He first paddled his own canoe in that quaint town about the year 1885, and 
having the power of speech not unlike a Webster, he found himself a popular youth in 
the Pepperell High School. 

By his mellifluous sentences and pleasing smile he enrap- 
tures all the ladies, and after a few consoling words, he 
has them trained so that a call would not be improper. 
He has been the "Best Man" they could find for a few 
weddings, and he lives in hopes of being married himself. 
"Chappie" harmonizes with the "Kids" tenor in the choir, 
and also is a member of the band, glee club and orchestra. 
He has been vice-president of the class and president of 
the Fussers' Club, '08. He has great analytical powers, 
but not in a geometrical way. He is a member of the Q. 
T. V. fraternity, S. '08 Club and expects to study chemistry 

Henry Clinton Chase. Was chased into the dear old city of Lynn, March 4, 
1885, by a raw north wind. He has been chased or chasing ever smce. He was 
caught long enough in Swampscott to obtain a diploma from the Swampscott High School 
which he used as a pass-port into M. A. C. During his 
Freshman year he right manfully protected his class as 
Sergeant at Arms. He has been prominent in Athletics, 
having played a good game at foot-ball and a star game 
as catcher in our Sophomore base-ball game. His great- 
est athletic event was his sensational work as end on the 
'06 Minstrel show. "Heime" is the champion penny 
pitcher of the college. He plays "with" the snare drum in 
the band, wears his trousers turned up, is a member of the 
Co-ed Fussing Club, the "S" '08 Club, and belongs to the 
C. S. C. Fraternity. He is on the 1 908 Index board, and 
has elected biology. 

Perhaps "Heime" has given as many "cuts" in his subject, 
"Shaving" as the Kid has in his beloved study of Alchemy. 


OrtoN Loring Clark. Here we have the champion debater of the class. By his 
gracefulness as a man, by his eloquence as a speaker and by his earnestness as a worker, 
he has found himself allied to the notorious ashbarrel detective, John McLane. Never 
mind, "Orton," by going to school in Dorchester, Somer- 
ville. Maiden and the Foster School, and by deciding 
to enter M. A. C, you will rank with the highest. Orton 
never cared to play the games of life, although they say 
he has played "Drop the Pillow" at North Amherst. 
This is a rather rough game for him. Orton is a member 
of the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity and he often "lens" his 
hours of surveying to the little posies. Orton thinks he is 
not "Loring" his ambitions by giving his time to agriculture. 
He was born in Dorchester, April 18, 1887. 

George Robert Cobb. This athlete or quoting G. Wurdz, "A dignified bunch of 

muscles, unable to split wood or sift the ashes" was born in South Hadley, Mass., Aug. 

26, 1885. They say some people are born with a silver spoon in their mouth but we 

have the idea that he was born with a foot ball or base 

ball in his. Ever since he has been large enough to move 

about he has played some game or other. "Roger" has 

played on the Varsity Base Ball, Foot Ball and Basket 

Ball Teams. He also sings a little in the College Choir, 

plays in the band and is a member of the Index Board, 

"Roger" is next year's captain in Base Ball and we all 

wish him a grand success. He is a very prominent factor 

in athletics and is just as prominent among the ladies. 

He is a member of the C. S. C. and will elect landscape. 



William John Coleman. Claims that on October 27, 1885, he landed at Natick, 
but this is disputed by his colleague, Hen Gowdey. "Bill" has always lived in Natick 
and was graduated from the High School of that town. "Bill" is quick to learn (some 
things,) and by his quickness he was given a chance to 
make his numerals playing basket-ball. By his gentle dis- 
position and never-ceasing patience he was made the guard- 
ian and nurse of our only child, Craig Gowdey. Bill has 
brought him up well and now, after his years of kind de- 
votion, he finds time enough to go to Springfield every 
Sunday, no one knows what for. "Bill" is a member of 
the C. S. C, S. '08 Club and landscape is his choice. 

WiNTHROPE AtheRTON CumMINGS. Belched his head off in Belchertown, December 
7, 1885. He acquired his education at the Palmer High School, and while there he 
strengthened the base-ball, basket-ball and track teams. This boy is a hard worker, and 
very quiet, but somehow he is acquainted with very many 
of the fair sex. He made his numerals playing base-ball, 
keeping the rain out of the right field. But "for a' that" 
he is a man. He is claimed by the Q. T. V. fraternity 
and elected landscape gardening. 


Leroy Edward Cutting. "A peculiar contortion of the human countenance, volun- 
tary or involuntary, superinduced by a concatenation of external circumstances, seen or 
heard, of a ridiculous, ludicrous, jocose, mirthful, funny, facetious or fanciful nature, and 
accompanied by a cackle, chuckle chortle, cachinnation, 
giggle, gurgle, guffaw or roar" is an exact description of our 
dear friend "Roy" when he sees a joke. Perhaps we 
will overlook it, as he was born in the noisy "townlet" of 
Pelham June 4, 1 884. He used to walk from Pelham 
center to the Amherst High School for four years, through 
the "Cutting" winds of winter, and beneath the raging 
radical rays of the summer sun. His nickname is "Cut" 
and "Prof. Howard," knowing of his ability, never gave 
him a "Cut" in his subject or in the choir. 
Cut is a member of the Phi Sigma Kappa and will elect 

John Daniel. First heard the surf splash on Osterville shores April 1 6, 1 887. He 

attended the grammar schools in "Oysterville," but graduated from the Barnstable High 

School. "Jack" is a quiet sort of a lad and is seldom heard or seen. He never seems 

to contribute to "Billy's" egg-basket, as he has got the art 

of study down to a science. He lives far down on the 

Cape, and only gets out of town once a year and that is 

when he comes to Amherst. "Jack" has lived on the 

"sand which" is there for 1 9 years, and he thinks now 

that if he elects agriculture he might learn how to grow a 

Cape Cod dinner. He is a member of the Q. T. V. 




SteaRNES LoTHROP Davenport. Here we have the John D. of Amherst. Stearnie 
was a good scion, and was grafted to the town of North Grafton, Mass., December 10, 
1885. He took a thorough business course in the pubhc schools of that "burg" which 
enabled him to find employment as clerk, salesman, sten- 
ographer and shipper in the house of "Waugh & Conners." 
Stearnes is a worker and there are times that he hardly has 
time to turn around. He has a liking for math, as he has 
stuck to it for two years. He is claimed by the Kappa 
Sigma Fraternity, and after all, he is going to stick to 
horticulture, as he can "Grafton" his own town. 

Arthur James Farley. This tall, well-built and good natured piece of humanity 

was born in Waltham, September 2, 1 885. He played fbot-ball with the winning Wal- 

'tham eleven, and then by our good fortune we found him ever ready to hold his own 

in our front ranks. "Art" plays Varsity foot-ball, although 

he has been up against it. We all wish him success in his 

future attempts. He has had experience at the oar and 

was a good man on the Rope Pull team. 

As "Artie" was always a good-looking boy, he easily found 

employment in the "Watch City." Here it is said he made 

faces for the watches but we are ready to discredit all such 

statements. "Art" is a quiet sort of a fellow, but is always 

on hand in case of trouble. He is a member" of the Q. 

T. V. S. '08 Club and will support his family by going into 



Paul AugusTIN Davis. Was born in Lowell, March 31,1 886. Here he studied 
hard and eventually came to Massachusetts with '08. He is perhaps one of the most 
quiet sort of lads that you would care to meet. He never comes around and mingles 
with the fellows but lives a life of recluse in his room. He 
is a pleasant fellow to meet and to talk with and is always 
on hand with the class in any trouble. Perhaps most of 
us would be better off if we took young Paul as our model. 
He will study agriculture. 

Clifford Dolan. Bom in Hudson, Mass., the "Skidoo" day of June 1884, and 
soaked into his head all possible knowledge obtained from the public schools of that town. 
"Hersum" is his maiden name, and one will always find him either in class-room with 
"Babby" or taking special courses from Forristall. "Her- 
sum" is going to elect agriculture and expects to plow his 
way through the world and reap a harvest. 


Perley Monroe 

Townsend, December 

"Townsend" than a 

Eastman. This clothes-pin first hooped a bucket in 
1 9, 1 884. This dignified bunch of muscles was more of a 
God-send. But Perley has been a good worker, having the 
"Townsend" him through the schools and later on he sent 
himself to "Aggie." "Gramp," "Abbie," "Yeast Cake" 
or "Jackknife," as he is called, has been Sergeant at Arms 
and he has had many a perilous encounter. "Gramp" is 
an all around athlete, and the trouble is that he is always 
around, and on account of his muscular appearance he 
holds the teams in suspense. "Gramp" is taking a few 
lessons in the art of fussmg and always attends the dances. 
He is not so bad, after all, and after he studies a few 
years on landscape gardening he will shape into a proud 
young man. 

Frank Lawrence Edwards. We don't claim this Oriental specimen of a man as 
Shakespeare's Shylock, but had he been livmg at that time we are afraid that Bassanio 
would have got his. "Bush " or "Shylock, " to be more exact, gave a "weigh " his first 
cry of "When can you pay your bill?" in Boston, May 
13, 1885. As he has lived in the cities of Somerville and 
Boston all of his life we expect him to be more -or less 
shrewd, but for all his faults he is a game one and has taken 
a good many hard knocks in his day. He received his 
first one or two in the class foot ball game, where he played 
at full-back. Next he got it from the Freshmen in a class 
mix-up. No one "nose " how much "Bush" "nose " about 
his nose, but we think that after all its pushing and bump- 
ing and squashing its crookedness and Roman style 
have departed. Bush kept the College store and is a firm 
believer in the cold water cure. He has not failed to have 
at least one or two each year since he has enlisted with '08. 
He will elect agriculture, as his brain is too highly devel- 
oped for math. 


Allan Dana FarRAR. This fattened parasite was born in South Framingham, Decem- 
ber 30, 1884. After a few years of sporting Hfe in that "burg" he moved to Amherst 
and graduated from that High School. He came up to iVi. A. C. and looked it over 
and '08 found him stowed away in the "Kids" baby car- 
riage Mr. Farrar was Vice President of the Y. M. C. A. 
and a member of the Glee Club. He played foot ball and 
being good on "Farrar" way shots he made good on the 
basket ball team. 

He is a member of the Q. T. V. fraternity and will study 

Parke Warren Farrar. First thought of entering into society June 17, 1883, in 

Keene, N. H. On account of his "Keeneness" and good nature he has worked at 

many different trades. He has been an advertising agent, a salesman, postmaster and 

conductor, and one would think by all these trades that he 

should be married and settled down. He changed his 

mind and came to Massachusetts, where he was claimed by 

the Kappa Sigma fraternity. Parke is another quiet lad, 

but often goes fussing for a little vacation. Parke has had 

plenty of education, having been to Newport High School, 

St. Johnsbury Academy, Springfield High School and now 

he feels rather confident that he can elect math, without 

getting stuck. 


Clifton LeROY Flint. The town of Dedham has produced some "dead ones" but 
on July I 6, 1 884, it broke the record and gave to us a species closely allied to steel, 
Cliffie Flint. Mr. Flint attended the public schools of Dedham and Amesbury, and in 
the latter town he was noted as a foot-ballist, and ice-polo- 
ist. He is a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity and 
is generally known as "Clif." Even if his name is Flint, 
he has never struck a "light" course as yet, but we hope 
that next year he will. "Clif" has promenaded around 
Mt. Holyoke and Smith, and studied the different curves 
and character of the road beds. He is good at this and 
expects to elect landscape. 

Chester Socrates Gillett. Was not bom in Athens, as one would anticipate, 
but started his manly career in Southwick, Mass., some time in May, 1884. He studied 
about "Socrates" in the Westfleld High School, and came to M A C to live the man. 
"Chet," or as we will call him, Socrates, has many like- 
nesses to this venerable philosopher. He is pious, full of 
self-control, and has unfailing powers of endurance. Soc- 
rates once said "To want nothing is divine; to want as 
httle as possible is the nearest possible approach to the 
divine life." So it is with this Socrates. Like his 
ancestor, he is "observant, acute and thoughtful," and 
exercises his mental powers as a pastime. He is just as 
true a patriot to the class as Socrates was to ancient Greece. 
"Chet" belongs to the Kappa Sigma fraternity and is 
taking biology. 


Kenneth Edward Gillett. First trilled with the frogs in Southwick, Mass., March 
28, 1885. After graduating from the Westfield High School he came to M. A. C. 
While in High School he captained the track team and played on the basket ball and 
foot ball teams. By his winning ways and business 
like manner he was elected Assistant Manager of the Foot 
Ball team. He is a member of the College Senate, Frater- 
nity Conference, Captain of the Varsity basket ball team, 
captain class basket ball team and played on the class 
foot ball team. Perhaps the "Co-eds" would like him to 
be manager of the Croquet team. We will see what we 
can do for him. He and Heime are the only ones ever 
known to eat a freezer full of ice cream. This was done 
at an exhibition grub match at Draper Hall. 
He is a member of the <I>2K fraternity and will study land- 
scape. "Gillie" is at home every night but Sunday. 
"Wilson" that's all. 

Carlton Craig Gowdey. This pigmy was found hiding under a piece of sea-weed on 

the shores of Bridgetown, Barbados, December I 2, I 884. He was taken good care of 

and eventually found himself seeking knowledge. After going to school in Harrison, 

he yearned for a change and with a pocket full of lemons, 

Beeman's Pepsin Gum and a chest of sea-sick powders, he 

sailed for New York. Here he heard of M. A. C. and 

with his same appetite for knowledge he entered with '08. 

He has a few childish pranks left yet but his nurse "Bill' 

Coleman is doing fine with him. Gowdey, or "Pamelia" 

or "Amelia" is "crazy" over bugs, and expects to study 

biology, ultimately branching into entomology. He is a 

member of the C. S. C. 


Herbert Kendall Hayes. Joined the society of this world at North Granby, Conn., 
March II, 1 884. He strove for a little learning at Gushing Academy, where he pre- 
pared for M. A. G. This light-haired youth has always the same winning smile, but 
it lost its combination on Prof. Howard's course. He is 
a shark at pitching pennies, having bought the receipt from 
"Heime." He never goes fussing on "Hayesy" days, and 
always keeps good hours. He got the habit from "Soc- 
rates" Gillett. "Smiler" is a member of the Kappa Sig- 
ma fraternity the Y. M. G. A. and will study biology. 

William Llewellyn Howe. " 'Howe' Would You Like to Spoon With Me?" 
has been sung ever since July 3, 1885, in Marlboro, Mass. This has been his song for 
years and at last he has found a girl in Amherst. 
He graduated from the Marlboro High School and later 
decided to come to M. A. G. Howe claims that he has 
never done "nothin" to "nobody" but somebody has done 
something to his body. Howe, in appearance, resembles 
Huss's "Kleiner Muck" and with his stocky build and side- 
wheel motion he was given a chance for a trial spin in the 
College pond. Howe is a great fusser, and his winning 
smiles and witty witticisms have made many a close friend. 
He is anxious for a "graft," so he will elect horticulture. 



James Augustus Hyslop. This far-sighted Amoeba first thought of Entomology in 
Chicago, July 7, 1884, where he got sick eating "tainted meat." He has had a good 
prep., coming from the Rutherford High School. James, or "Nervy Nat," has been the 
president of the class, plays in the orchestra, the band, yells 
in the choir and is the artist of the Index. James got a 
few bumps playing football on the class team and got other 
bumps from the New Jersey mosquitoes. "Naty Pinkle- 
toe" hopes that after his course in entomology he will be 
able to reduce the size of the mosquito, if not, he can 
reduce the bump. "Lolly Pop" has changed a great deal 
since he first bought them "two for a cent," and after four 
years he will be completely changed into a "man." 
He is a member of the Q. T. V., S '08 Club and is taking 
the biology course. 

DORSEY Fisher Ingalls. This young "Fisher" man first learned how to hook a 

sucker in the little town of Cheshire, September 20, 1 883. After going through the 

Adams High School and keeping on the sunny side of the ladies he was ushered in to 

M. A. C. with '08 and has improved much since. 

"Dort" is a particular friend of "Bush" Mills especially at 

the end of each week. "Dort" has been shining up to 

the ladies for some time and has become very proficient in 

the art. He is a lover of the vile weed and relies upon 

Joe Beals for cast off pipes. If he enjoys them let him 

smoke here rather than hereafter. 

"Dort" is a member of the Q. T. V. fraternity and will 

study agrotechney. 


Raymond HobaRT Jackson. First listened to the birds sing in Amherst, May 22, 
1885. He attended the schools in that town and graduated from the Amherst High 
School. As "Snap" is a quiet sort of a lad and very careful not to overwork himself, 

he decided to stay in Amherst and go to M. A. C. 

"Snap" played center on the class football team, and find- 
ing he had plenty of wind he entered the band. He also 
is a member of the Glee and Mandolin Clubs, and belongs 
to the Phi Sigma Kappa. He will study chemistry. 

Harry Milliken Jennison. The young "Walnut" first studied about the Para- 

moceium in the stagnant waters of the Blackstone River in Worcester July 24, 1 885. 

After studying hard in the neighboring schools "Millie" with the advice of his elders 

decided in favor of M. A. C. "Doc." as he is more often 

called is a great speaker and has a pleasant and articulate 

mode of persuasion. With his dress suit and winged 

collar and his high set "little head," he may be likened to 

the true Daniel Webster. "Doc" made the Burnham 

Eight, was manager of the class base ball team, and is 

assistant manager of the Varsity Basket Ball Team. He 

also is a member of the "S," "'08" club, and a member 

of the C. S. C. Fraternity. 

As first Sergeant of Company C. he struts around with his 

head back and his pseudopod out and makes a hit with the 

Freshmen. He also shacks the Laundry about College. 

"Walter" will study biology. 


Frederick Andrew Johnson. Here we have the "famous" Johnson so often heard 
about in the Enghsh class. He was born next door to "Archie" Hartford in Westford 
Mass., May 25, 1887. After passing through Westford Academy he decided in favor 
of M. A. C. Since that time he has been a very inter- 
esting factor and his growth and development have been 
wonderful. He is a large, powerful (?) youth and always 
has a glad hand for every one except the (Co-eds). To 
"Ginger" or "Big Raz" as he is called we fellows owe 
much thanks for his kind contribution of "Pseudonyms." 
"Ginger" played on the class base ball and foot ball teams 
and is a member of the C. S. C. and "S" '08 Club. He 
will elect biology. 

Thomas Henry Jones. Here we have "Tad" Jones, not of Yale, but of Massachu- 
setts. He began his quite simple life in Pawtucket, R. I., September 25, 1885. 
"Tad" has lived in nearly every town in Massachusetts, but finally he was ostracized to 
R. I. Here he developed into an athlete, and he tells us 
that he played foot ball and base ball while a student in 
the Oliver Ames High School. "Tad" has made his 
numerals by playing foot ball and on the rope pull team. 
"Tad" is a quiet sort of a fellow and will never go out 
of town unless "Ginger" goes. He very seldom associates 
with the ladies, his only friend being his pipe. He would 
make a fine "Parson." 
He is a member of the Q. T. V. and will elect biology. 



David Laruetsius Larsen. Young "Dave" first noticed the golden sun set in Stock- 
holm, Sweden, September I 8, 1 886. After bidding farewell to old Sweden he came to 
the U. S. and moved to Peekskill, N. Y. From here he went to Bridgeport, Conn., and 
finally came to Amherst. "Dave" has that persistency 
allied to his ancestors and always is ready to uphold the 
rights of '08. In fact, he did so well that he had his 
hand in a sling for quite a while. "Dave" is somewhat 
of a florist and started in raising peanuts but they turned 
out to be sweet peas and was arrested for "larceny." 
"Dave" is a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity and 
will study horticulture. 

Lai Kwei Liang. This Oriental gentleman of whom we are all so proud was found 
in a package of tea in Canton, China in the year of 1 883. He studied his native lan- 
guage in Tientsin from 1 890 till 1 90 1 and then having the desire to become proficient in 

the art of growing rice he came to America with His Ex. 

Sir Chentung Liang Cheng, Chinese Minister to the United 
States in 1 903. After coming to America he went to 
Amherst and prepared for M. A. C. at the Amherst High 
School. It is quite an honor to have with us a gentleman 
of so much renown and he is just as good as his pedigree 
given to him by Abbie Eastman. "Lai" is a fellow who 
always believes in a good time and never has he missed a 
class banquet. The first one which he went to, he induged 
in all the festivities of the evening and then was looking for 
more. He is a fellow who is never "Liang" around but 
very active and somewhat of a tennis shark. It is rumored 
that he won a series of games from Gowdey. Liang will 
elect biology. 



Danforth Parker Miller. Was found singing "Rigity Gig and Away we go" 
in the archives of the City Hall in Worcester October 28, 1 888. He was graduated 
from the Worcester South High and entered with '08 at Massachusetts. "Dan" is a 
member of the Signal Board, is class Historian, a member 
of the Y. M. C. A. and the Hash Kicker's Union. Each 
year he moves nearer to the Co-ed table and gets his style 
from the fair ones. "Smiler" Hayes says he is a great 
fusser but no symptoms have been noticed as yet. He is 
a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity and will study 

George Paige. Was bom in Charlestown, Mass., July 15, 1883. After becoming 

acquainted with everybody in Charlestown he moved out here where he could find many 

more and increase his acquaintances. After going the "Rounds" in the Amherst High 

School he had an inclination to come to M. A. C. We 

are all glad that "Roundy" as he is called did this, as he 

has been energetic worker for the foot ball team having 

played on the Varsity for quite a while. When "Roundy" 

is on a trip he has a resemblance to the Ancient King 

Tantalus. King Tantalus suffered in Hades the agonies 

of hunger and thirst, which were always in sight but beyond 

reach. "Roundy" says "The table d'hote dinners which 

he gets are about as bad and besides it costs him quite 

a lot to feed." "Roundy" is a good classman and we 

all wish him success. He is a member of the Q. T. V. 

fraternity and will study agriculture. 



John Robert Parker. 
Poquonock, June 28, 1 88 
School he decided to roll 

Was born in some isolated town in Connecticut by the name of 
t. After going through the Windsor High and Mt. Hermon 
along with '08, at M. A. C. Perhaps "Bob" is the only 
fellow in the class whom the "Co-eds" really like. With 
his cute smiles and golden curls as well as his handsome 
ties which he earned pitching pennies he has broken the 
hearts of many a fair maiden. He actually cares nothing 
for them? "Bob" is a member of the K2 fraternity, is 
Editor-in-Chief of the Index, was class president, played 
on the class baseball team, is on the Senate. The Frater- 
nity Conference, Signal Board and is a member of the Y. 
M. C. A. He will study biology. 

Edwin Daniels Philbrick. Little "Edwin" was listed among the few people of 
this world November 29, 1883, in Medway, Mass. As "Johnnie" figures it he is 21 
years old but the Co-eds figure it to be 23 and he does not go over to Draper Hall as 

he used to. "Johnnie" made good on the Somerville 

Foot Ball Team and came to M. A. C. to do the same. 
He is one of the Reading Room Directors a member of 
the Signal Board and Manager of the Basket Ball Team. 
"Phil" is good on telling his troubles to the Co-eds whom 
he knows will sympathize with him, he never tells them 
to us. Johnny is a sticker so was Green, but he is doing 
better now. He is a member of the Phi Sigma Kappa 
and will plug on wheat. 


a quiet 

E BiGELOW Reed. Was born in Brookfield, Mass., July 8, 1884. As he is 
sort of a fellow and cares httle for the society of the "Silk Stocking" class he 
it a wise move to go to the large city of Worcester. Here he studied hard as 
he always does and after a few years of hard persistent 
work found himself among the members of the South High 
School. Here he spent four long years and later entered 
Massachusetts with the class of 1908. "Biggie" very sel- 
dom mingles with the fellows but when he does takes up a 
lot of room. When he and Verbeck get together there is 
no room for anyone else. He never goes fussing and no 
one knows what he does to take up his spare time, unless 
he puts it in at plugging. He is a member of the Kappa 
Sigma fraternity and will elect agriculture, having a good 
pull with Prof. Cooley. He is the trainer for Cooley's 
fast trotter, "Sapolio." 

William Swift Regan. This anything but "Swift" piece of human nature was born 

in Williamsburg, Mass., the 21st of August 1885. "Willie" attended the schools in 

Northampton and having a creeping desire for bugs came to M. A. C. As "Bill" is 

so "Swift" he made good on the class basket ball team and 

helped us out immensely. "Bill" is an Honorary member 

of the "Sons of Rest" and "Never Sweat" Clubs and has 

an application in for membership to the fussing club. 

"Bill" is a fine fisherman but Prof. Gordon seems to think 

that "Binary Fission" is the best for "Willie." He is 

a member of the K2 fraternity and will study biology. 



William Francis Sawyer. This gifted musician and five cent sport first uttered his 
notes of harmonious music in the town of Sterhng, September 20, 1887. He went to 
the Sterling Schools from the lowest to the highest and now he is Sterling all through. 
"Tom" as he is called is an allround sport and tries real 
hard to make good where ever he goes but has a little 
trouble. He has caught the habit of fussing from Clinton 
King, his room mate and there is no cure for him now. 
He never played the games of life except lawn tennis and 
he is a shark at this. Tom plays in the College orchestra, 
is a member of the Q. T. V. and will elect horticulture. 

Leroy Altus ShatTUCK. Is another member of the Pepperell tribe and first smoked 

Indian tobacco, March 29, 1887 in the Pepperell plains. After travelling around with 

the big boys Leroy finally sneaked into High School but they say he had no trouble 

in sneaking out. He played base ball and foot ball at 

High School and after coming to Aggie he was listed in 

the hall of fame. The Rogues Gallery would have been 

good but Larry showed improvement each day and he 

missed the opportunity. "Leo" played on the class foot 

ball, base ball and basket ball teams, has been captain 

of the class as well as the "Prexy" and perhaps he will be 

up as a candidate for the fussing club. Larry has roomed 

with two "hustlers" as he says, Jas. Draper and Heime 

but Larry has been "Hustled" once or twice himself. 

He is a member (if the C. S. C. "S" '08 Club and is 

studying to be a horticulturist. Let us wish him success. 


Frank Eugene Thurston. As "Daddy" Mills says "thirst is the strongest word in 
the English language," why should not "Jake" be one of the strongest in the class as he 
was born with a "Thurston" his lips May 30th 1 88-7, in Worcester, Mass. "Jake" 
got a good prep in Worcester with the other Worcesterites 
and enrolled with naughty eight. "Jake" or "Spud" is 
the progenitor of many a merry song and his latest is "The 
Merry Bowl." At the table "Spud" has all the fellows 
outclassed in polished etiquette. He is a poet of no mean 
ability and his latest production is: 

"Crisp green notes, 
A gay p — rade. 
Two tired sports. 
In bed are laid." 
He will study agronomy and is claimed by the Phi Sigma 
Kappa, and "S" '08 Club. 

Olive May Turner. Miss Olive May Turner was bom in Amherst, September 20, 

1 886. After completing a course in the High School of that town she decided to come to 

Massachusetts. We are all glad that she did for such a class as ours needs a chaperone 

and a mother. "May" has never played on the class teams 

as we know of but it is rumored that she and Dan Miller 

were trying out for the Marble team. May is a very 

pleasant girl to meet although most of us have never really 

been introduced to her. She always has a pleasant smile 

and a sweet good morning, now and then commenting upon 

the weather. She acquired quite a pull with Prof. Blake 

and it looks now as if she would elect horticulture. We 

hope the course "May Turner" out well quahfied to uphold 

the standard of '08 of which she is so proud. 

She is a member of the Peek-a-boos. 



William Ffjanklin Turner. "String" as we boys like to call him was born at New- 
ington N. H. May 6th, 1887. They say that "String" when young had the misfortune 
to get tangled up in a wringer and when he came through he was more or less elongated. 
Nevertheless it had no effect upon his brain as "string" 
stands good in his class and no one has anything against 
him as a mathematician. He has attended the public 
schools in Reading and after a fashion came with '08 to 
M. A. C. "String" is at all times one of the boys and 
always believes in doing the right thing by everybody, he 
even says "grace" at the breakfast table. He took his 
room mate "Deker" Howe over to the show in Holyoke 
one evening and if I recollect rightly came home without 
him. "Bill," "String," "Jack Sprat" or "Dubrey" as he 
is called is a member of the Q. T. V. fraternity and "S" 
'08 Club and he will elect landscape. 

Roland Hale Verbeck. This colossal was found stuck on a pedestal in the public 

Gardens, Boston, January 1 8, 1 886. Having been given a good understanding he 

weathered many a winter without losing his equilibrium. He passed through the schools 

in Maiden, no one knows through which doors but at any 

rate he had gray matter enough to enter with '08. After 

coming here and doing his best he has won many friends 

by his social smile and attractive manner. It is said that 

"Dowie" borrowed Bill Craighead's shoes one day to go 

to an informal and after getting tangled up with the many 

feet and losing one shoe he has been called "Cinderella" 

ever since. He has a contract with a shoe firm to make 

the "Verbeck Plantation" a very tasty shoe for ladies. 

Jud Wright being the Agent. 

"Dowie" will elect agriculture. 

He is a member of the <1>2K fraternity. 



Thomas Francis Waugh. This gifted speaker was born in Worcester March 26, 
1 886. After completing his course in the High School he became a prominent factor 
in the "H. A." debating society and decided to come to M. A. C. to take the course 
under Prof. Mills, his guardian. "Tom" is a notable 
speaker and easily won first prize on the Burnham eight. 
He has several medals which he has won but no one has 
ever seen them except "Tom." He is a favorite among 
the Smith College Girls and enjoys their company at all 
the dances. "Tom" is a member of "Bum's Aid Society 
and the "Never Flunks." 

He is a member of the Q. T. V. fraternity and is studying 

Theoren Levi Warner. "Levi" was bom in East Hampton, June 13, 1884. 
After going through the schools in Sunderland and Amherst he decided to come with the 
bunch to M. A. C. "Levi" is a little fellow but very fast not only physically but men- 
tally and morally. He entered athletics at High School 
and then helped us out at College. He played on the 
class base ball team and the Varsity in his Sophomore 
year, and was President of the class during the second 
semester. "Chet" is a bright active young man and very 
seldom goes out of an evening. Perhaps he would if his 
big brother was not around. Next year he may loosen up 
a little and see part of Pelham by moonlight. He is 
a member of the Q. T. V. fraternity and will elect math. 



Joseph Worcester Wellington. "Joe Beals" came to this merry world when 
a mere boy March 1 st 1 886 in the village of Waltham. Joe has a brother who was 
fortunate to graduate from Massachusetts and who kept a watchful eye over him during 
his first two years. But after Dick went away Joe began 
a career which no fellow has ever been able to cope with 
since. After leaving the Waltham High School Joe en- 
tered with '08 as a quiet little fellow but soon studied how 
the big boys did things and it was not long before he was 
trying out a few Freshmen himself. On one dark night 
he had two Pee Wees up in a tree singing him to sleep. 
Whenever there is any "rough housing" to be done Joe is 
always there feet first, and that is why so many panels 
have been missing. He was manager of the class basket 
ball team and tried for the class foot ball team but on 
account of a scratch over his eye he was ordered by a phy- 
sician to give it up. He had the idea that he was good on 
math, and went to Rennselaer Polytech but finding the 
fellows much unlike the M. A. C. boys came wandering 
back with us again. He is a member of the Q. T. V. 
fraternity and "S" '08 Club and will elect landscape. 

HeRMON Temple Wheeler. Young "Bull Foot" was born in Acton, Mass., Jan- 
uary 25, 1 886. After going through the Concord High School he came to M. A. C. 
with his little gray valise and has stayed for some time. He is a fine soldier and when 
the Capt. reads the clause "Heels together and toes out" 
Wheeler gets angry. He can put toes together and heels 
out and by walking backward fulfills the requirements. 
He was Capt. of the Rope Pull Team and Class Captain 
during his Freshman year. "Bull Foot" is a nice fellow 
to meet and always has a pleasant smile for all his class 
mates. "Hermon" or "Human" is an expert on raising 
crops especially of "hair." He will study horticulture 
and undoubtedly will profit by it. He is a member of 
the Q. T. V. fraternity. 



Albert Lemuel Whiting. "Lem" was born in Stoughton, Mass., May 12, 1885. 

He is a bright looking fellow but a person can never tell anything by the looks nowadays. 

During his "boyhood" days "Lem" went to school in the village but as he grew older and 
his folks could trust him more they let him go to High 
School, where he played base ball and pillow dex. Some 
say he was better at pillow dex than at base ball but 
we are in doubt. Now since "Lem" has grown up his 
parents have let him come to M. A. C. and it has just 
been the making of "Lem." He is not much of a society 
man but once in a while he and Wheeler go fussing over 
to Sunderland. They call him "Redas" for a nick name 
but I think Goldenrod is just as appropriate and prettier. 
"Lem" is a member of the Q. T. V. fraternity and a loyal 
supporter to the Rooting Club. He is talking agriculture. 

Raymond Dean Whitmarsh. This rare military genius first gave out his orders in 
Dighton, Mass., July 21, 1885. After entering High School in Taunton, Mass., 
"Whit" became proficient in Military Science and knowing that there would be a chance 
for a promotion came to M. A. C. and entered with '08. 
"Whit" has been Capt. of the class Basket Ball team and 
played on the Varsity Basket Ball team. When in high 
school he was Capt. of the Track team and played basket 

"Rube" should be called Napoleon Bonaparte. His name 
being Napoleon and his legs making the Bony Part. 
However "Whit" enjoys drilling the Freshman and they 
all like his instruction? He is a member of the K2 frater- 
nity and is taking biology. 



Samuel Judd Wright. On November 22, 1885 in South Sudbury there came one 
of the cleverest "Regal" peddlers that ever walked up the little road of bye and bye, 
that leads to the house of never. "Judd" who is a hard worker skun through the Sudbury 
High and it was not long after that he met with a serious 
accident, he ran into M. A. C. with 08. "Juddy" was 
Vice President of the class and a member of the Soph- 
omore Rope Pull team. He is now in the shoe business 
having got the stingy habit from "Shylock." He is a 
member of the Q. T. V. fraternity and will study agro-

HE EDITOR is treading new ground. Never before has he contrib- 
uted to the editorial columns of a publication. Yet his step is firm 
and elastic. He is not over-confident in his own powers of expression, 
and yet he has become so thoroughly imbued with that inherent spirit 
of "get there" which marks all undertakings of the class of 1 908 
that he feels he cannot fail. He must be worthy of the confidence and 
trust which the class he proudly claims has placed in him. His 
classmates have stood behind him and answered faithfully every call, and now he wishes 
to step aside and ask them to accept the good work which they have done. He does 
not pretend to thank them. That is a debt which the class and college owe them. Our 
best recompense is in the satisfaction of something well done, and according as we have 
wrought, so shall we be rewarded. 

But what for editorials ! the Editor realizes the humble part he plays in college 
affairs. He realizes that he has his failings, and that they are, after all, not so much 
worse than other people's faults. He appreciates that he has his own peculiar ideas, and 
that they may not always coincide with other people's ideas. Why should we not differ? 
And yet we are all interested in a grander, truer, and still better "Mass'chusetts," and 
what-so-ever we say, and what-so-ever we do, may it always be with the firm conviction 


that it is for the good of the College. May our prayer for her future be that nothing 
but what is beautiful and true and noble and good may enter into her life. "Prayer 
for aught else is vicious." So may we help one-another and our Alma Mater with our 
cooperation, even tho our separate acts may seem irreconcilable. Our acts must show 
conformity if each one of us does as his better-self indicates. 

I was walking, some months past, with a youth among the mountainous tracts of Ver- 
mont. It was a beautiful moonlight night. The moon had just reached the full, and 
flooded the earth with that glorious radiance which so strangely affects us wondering 
mortals. The mountains rolled away from beneath our feet in soft billows of various 
greens, shaded so gently and softly by that wondrous radiance from above. Below us, 
far below us, twined the silvery thread of the White River as it flashed here and there in 
the moonlight, only to disappear the next instant in some dark blot of forbidding pines. 
The spell of the evening was upon me, and I spoke to my young companion of 
the wonderful hills, the beautiful river like unto the River of the Lost Footsteps, the 
woods, the fields, the sweet odor of ferns, the tinkling of weary cow-bells, the plaintive 
bleat of the Iamb, — even of the merry cricket that chirruped 'neath the rock below us. 
"Yes," said he, "but sometimes I wish I might never hear a cricket again." 

'Tis a glorious division of labor that directs our paths in different ways. My ambi- 
tions are not your ambitions, and yours are not mine, and so each of us takes his individ- 
ual part in the work of the Whole, and mankind's work rolls on smoothly thru mutual 
dependence. It is a welcome sign of the day that our young men from the city are 
beginning to appreciate the beauties and possibilities of country life, and that in turn the 
country youths hunger for the activities of the city. The infusion of new blood into 
established activities is good. Our agricultural colleges show each year an increased per- 
centage of students drawn from city communities. It is also true that the number of 
students from the country also is increasing, but the rate of increase is not so large. Aca- 
demic colleges, on the other hand, show a greater percentage of increase of students drawn 
from rural communities. The present era is emphatically one of educational progress. I 
was much surprised to find in the little country town of central Vermont where I spent 
the summer so many of the young people intent upon a higher education. In fact, now 
that the academic year has fairly begun, the little town is nearly deserted of its young 
men and women. But I was still further surprised to find that without exception all 
these young people were taking academic courses. On the contrary, as I look back upon 
the last three classes which have graduated from the high-schools of my native city, I find 
that some twenty or thirty students have enrolled upon the books of M. A. C. alone, to 
say nothing of other colleges of a similar technical nature. 


What does this all indicate? In the first place, more profitable times are opening 
up the educational possibilities of the rural communities. This is of supreme importance. 
Too long have the country localities been shut off from that educational progress which 
has characterized city life. The country boy has grown up and received most of his 
education on the farm, and so lived and died there without bettering his father's condi- 
tions. And worst of all he has been satisfied. Is it any wonder that he has become the 
hero of the comic newspapers? But during the past decade times have changed. The 
country boy has become ambitious, and is reaching out for that domain which of right is 
his. The intelligent farmer has become a type today. Yet too often have our country 
young men become dissatisfied with the home conditions, and sought for what they con- 
sider broader fields of work. It seems ill-fitting to them that they should apply their 
intelligence and training to the farm work, so that today one of the greatest questions of 
our farming communities is the question of capable, reliable, help. 

To partially meet this demand has come a considerable body of young men, tired 
of the rush and scramble of city life, and seeking only for an opportunity to settle down 
to the quietness and beauty of a life out-of-doors. True, they are many of them idealists 
who have much to learn of actual farm life, yet the inborn desire for out-door freedom 
is so great that no minor disappointments can divert them. They are ready and eager to 
work, and have the faculty of making pleasurable whatever they do. They are not 
above their work, and can much easier adapt themselves to conditions than their more 
staid country cousins. Above all, they seek to apply their intelligence and knowledge 
to the work they have chosen. An agricultural college offers them the first opportunity, 
to be supplemented by practical work. The college course opens to them an invaluable 
supply of literature, and acquaints them with the workings of those great implements of 
agricultural progress, the United States Department of Agriculture, and the State Exper- 
iment Stations. In a word, they have done themselves the justice of a standard college 
education, and then further justified themselves by applying that education intelligently to 
their every-day work. 

The strength of every nation is fundamentally agricultural. If our agricultural in- 
terests decline, so must our national standing. If they progress, so shall we take a still 
higher place in the rank of nations. This foundational importance of agriculture in the 
framework of our countries' welfare was long ago appreciated by our legislators. The 
"Land Grants" insured a college of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts to every state in the 
Union. These state colleges have become the leading educational institutions of the 
day. In contrast with our academic colleges, they are bound to progress, -they cannot 
retrograde. The national and state governments stands behind them. The Department 
of Agriculture and the State Experiment Stations supplement their work. Students flock 
to their doors, seeking for a practical education, something which they can apply to the 



making of a livelihood when they graduate. And the study of scientific agriculture is 
not the least of these practical sciences. 

And so today we are glad to claim "Mass'chusetts" as our Alma Mater. We are 
glad that her primary object is agricultural, and that it has been incorporated in her name. 
We are glad of the opportunity to fit ourselves for an mtelligent and noble life "out-of- 
doors," close to that which is nearest to God's own perfection, — the beauties of Nature. 
We are glad of the opportunity to fit ourselves for other fields of work, equally impor- 
tant, equally enticing. We are proud of this old college which shelters us, proud of her 
alumni, her president, the trustees, the various departments, and those who conduct them 
so ably, and lastly, proud of the democratic body of men who are enrolled as students 
upon her books. May they be governed by that intelligence and progressiveness which 
characterizes Mass'chusetts men. The future of the college is in their hands. 
"Then give three cheers for Old Mass'chusetts, 
And then give three cheers more." 

Sunday Chapel 

Have I launched upon turbid waters? The "religious" question is a delicate one to handle 
in a body of young men. In these days, we seem to put further and further away the 
theoretical questions of creeds and doctrines. It is the practical side of religion that 
appeals to us. We admire the man who is honest, square, and clean in every way. We 
look no further into his beliefs. The religious prig or crank does not count one iota in 
our estimation. Such is the sifting of college opinion. 

There is a strong sentiment now-a-days among the fellows in favor of chapel ser- 
vices on Sunday, provided they be conducted along specific lines. Under no condition 
would the students favor a return to the old system which proved so unsatisfactory. That 
system was built on fundamentally wrong ideas, and so could not succeed. In the first 
place, attendance was made compulsory, until, under stress of circumstances, it was proved 
that no state institution of any kind whatsoever had the right to force religious matters in 
any way upon the people connected with that institution. Probably no such conclusion 
would have been forced in this particular instance if the standard of Chapel exercises had 
been what it should have been. And this brings us to the second cause of failure. One 
man, a member of the faculty, conducted all the exercises. There was no variation. 
Five days in the week he lectured in the class-room. On Sunday, his eccentricities of 
thought and manner were transmitted to the pulpit, — the result might have been expected. 



Familiarity breeds contempt. The optional system of attendance now prevailing, nobody 
went to chapel, and finally the whole business was abandoned. 

Then why should we advocate a return to the Sunday chapel system? There seems 
to be a demand for it. The fellows are nearly all practical moralists, tho, perhaps, they do 
not claim any great religious propensities. The churches in town are too far away to 
stimulate regular attendance. Then too, are not our young, thinking, college men entit- 
led to better preachers and thinkers than the small churches of Amherst can afford? 
Young men at that age are apt to get skeptical, and sometimes even atheistic. It takes 
strong, practical thinkers to keep the trend of their thought in proper lines. If proper 
services, were held in the chapel on Sunday, a greater number of students would attend 
rather than make their way weekly to the various churches in town. Thus the greatest 
good would be extended to the greatest number. 

But what specific lines should chapel services be conducted upon? In the first place, 
they must be non-denominational, and to this end, a variety of speakers must be secured. 
One man, no matter how liberal and fair-minded he may be, cannot help but leave an 
impression of his own particular creed and doctrines. This must be avoided. A con- 
sideration of fifty dollars would bring noted speakers of different denominations to our 
services, speakers who have proved their worth, and who always command attention and 
respect. Would an expenditure of fifteen hundred dollars a year be ill advised in such 
a cause? The Y. M. C. A. turns out one hundred students to listen to its speakers. 
Surely these hundred, and many more, would support a speaker of even greater reputation 
than the Y. M. C. A. can afford. Those who witnessed the old experience with Sunday 
chapel services are apt to be skeptical when we speak of renewing these services. Have 
they been witnesses of the progress and success of the Y. M. C. A. during the past year? 
That alone is enough to sweep away all doubts. We are none of us religious prigs, or 
even, perhaps, enthusiasts, but we are all susceptible to the better and nobler motives which 
actuate men in their belief in a higher and better Being. Humanity has always worship- 
ped a Deity. 

Track Athletics 

First, a bit of history. In the spring of their freshman year, the class of 1908 formed 
a track team, elected a manager, and took steps to arrange for the use of Pratt field, and 
secure a meet with the Amherst freshmen. At this point, the upper class men interferred, 
choosing to call up again the old feud with Amherst, and tho the class had every promise 
of success in that direction, the matter was dropped. This was a dampening blow to 'OS's 



aggressiveness. Yet the idea was not abandoned. The exact state of affairs regarding 
a Mass'chusetts athletic field was learned. Disappointed again, the class committee met 
with the committee of the trustees on "New Buildings and Arrangement of Grounds," 
with the result that a favorable report was given sanctioning the placing of a running 
track around the campus, and such other work as should be necessary to fit the, campus 
for temporary field athletics. But at this point things came to a stand-still, tho the class 
did erect bars and prepare a piece of ground for the running broad jump. Mr. Draper, 
the heart and soul of the movement on the part of the trustees, was taken sick, and the 
members of the class did not feel competent, or that they could spare the time, to make the 
track. No help was offered by the faculty; in fact, it was rather urged that the matter be 
dropped entirely, and there it stands today. 

The reasons why an enclosed athletic field is not a present reality are well under- 
stood by graduates and undergraduates. We can only hope that the near future will 
bring a change in the present rock-bound conditions. But in the meanwhile can we not 
at least make the beginnings of a track team? Tho we have no track and no well arranged 
field, the campus offers, with a Httle work, all that is necessary for track-team work. A 
running track encircling the campus and drill hall would be of fair length, and the soil 
is of the proper constituency to pack well. Such a temporary track would by no means 
disfigure the campus, — in fact, would give it a business-like aspect, — and could be easily 
covered again in the advent of an athletic field. 1 908 has demonstrated that it takes but 
little effort to erect bars for the pole-vault and high jump. A patch of the soft campus 
soil, loosened and pulverized, could not be bettered for jumping. The hammer can be 
thrown, and the shot put, just as well upon our level campus as upon the most costly of 
enclosed fields. What else do we need? A few hurdles, poles, bars, shot, hammers,— 
a very simple equipment. The money for this equipment could easily be raised by pop- 
ular subscription. The making of the track presents the greatest obstacle, merely because 
the students themselves cannot perform the labor. No grading is necessary, — simply the 
removing of the turf, and the packing of the soil, — a simple operation, if only someone 
with authority would undertake it, and see it thru. 

What shall we do about it? In the first place, we must create the proper enthu- 
siasm in the student body. The students must, by their determination and sincerity, 
impress upon the alumni, the trustees, and the faculty, that they are in earnest, and mean 
business. Very few men, proportionately, can play football, baseball, and basketball. 
What becomes of our other athletes? They must remain inactive, — a retrogradation from 
that which they have done in high school days. The track-team offers athletics in the 
broadest, most general, sense to the greater majority of students. The other special 
athletic contests are not going to suffer from track work, — the track work will develop 
football, baseball, and basketball players, — speedy, enduring men. In the near future. 



athletics will be self-supporting at M. A. C, so the question of additional expense is but 
transitory, — and never very great. A track team today will hasten the coming of an 
athletic field tomorrow, — and then, — athletics on a self-supporting basis. 

1 908, it is up to you. It has always been a question close to your hearts. Will 
you not see it accomplished before you graduate? Let us leave at least this monument to 
the prowess, the energy, the indomitable spirit, the implacable Tvill of 1 908. 

Massachusetts Spirit 

Have you not heard those cheers ringing out from two hundred voices, echoing and re-echo- 
ing as they chase one another from mountain to mountain, finally to die away in the vast 
stretches of the valley? Have you not heard those glorious songs of spirit and fire as they 
fill the air with their message of cheer and victory, impressing even the echos to 
sound their strains of pluck and defiance? Have you not seen that glorious democratic 
body of young men, united as one for the sake of Old Bay State, and all that she repre- 
sents? Have you not, I say, witnessed all that unity of thought, expression, and action, 
that college spirit, which is characteristic of Mass'chusetts men? If you have never wit- 
nessed this, you know not what true college spirit is. 

It is the spirit which supports our athletic teams, — of the men who get out there day 
after day on the campus and plug and grind to turn out a good team for the sake of the 
rest of the fellows, — the spirit of the varsity, the spirit of the scrub. It is the spirit of 
those who, tho trembling with eagerness to get out there and play the game, must stand 
on the side-lines, cheering and singing to encourage those men who can play, and urge 
them to put forth their best energies. It is the spirit of those who can overlook a poor 
play, encouraging the player to profit by his mistakes, and devote all his energies to play- 
ing a better game. It is the spirit of those who stand ready to offer their services to the 
slightest need of a player, — of those who go down into the rubbing room, or take a 
tired player's place at the Dining Hall. 

It is the spirit which treats with commensurate courtesy a visiting team, offering its 
members as guests the best hospitality the college can afford; the spirit which treats an 
opponent courteously on the field of contest, and plays a clean game for the sake of clean 

It is the spirit which supports with equal courage and equal endeavor our other stu- 
dent organizations; that has built up our Y. M. C. A. to a forceful factor for good in 
our college, — that has spent many a precious evening hour to develop a musical organ- 


ization that is a credit to Mass'chusetts talent and energy, — that has supported the college 
paper, — sometimes a thankless job, — grinding thru the spare hours of the week to turn 
out copy, — the spirit of those who support our seminars and clubs, — every institution of 
student activity and progress. 

It is the spirit which seeks the greatest good of the college, which believes heart and 
soul in this grand old Alma Mater of ours, the work she does, the things she stands for, 
and the men who represent her. It is the spirit which presupposes no evil, but looks for 
the best, aims for the best, and believes that the best does exist. It is the spirit which, 
seeing an evil, will forget it, and rushes in to rectify the mistakes, rather trymg to replace 
evil with good than to punish evil, — the spirit that overlooks another's faults, realizing 
that we are none of us perfect, and looks for all that is good, and noble, and manly, and 
true. Yes, it is the spirit of love, — love for college, and love for one-another. God 
bless our own Mass'chusetts; God bless Mass'chusetts men, and Mass'chusetts spirit. 

Scholastic Revival of China 

For ages China has maintained a formidable bar against western civilizations, because she 
had her own civilization, literature, music and other arts. Printing, the mariner's compass 
and gunpowder were known to her long before they were used in the western world. 
During the ages of San Huang Wu Dee fH ^ ^ ■f. (2953-2300 B. C.) the spirit of 
scholasticism crystalized, not only from the classical point of view, but morality was 
regarded as a principle element of character. Through 800 years of peace which the 
Chou ^ dynasty enjoyed, interest in the civil service encouraged the use of the pen 
instead of the sword. Since, then, the foothold of scholasticism has been firmly estab- 

About 950 years before Queen Elizabeth came to the English throne, new ideas 
looking to thorough reformation were advanced. The poetic revival simultaneously 
found its ideals in fullest manifestation. The "Chinese National Anthem" is the only 
piece of Chinese music ever printed in English form. It expresses seven passions belong- 
ing to the ancient hfe. 

Chinese literary scholars devote their lives entirely to literature; humanity is the only 
interest agreeable to their nature. During these two centuries, the scientific discoveries 
of the western world sprang up with added activity. Then the resultant of these two 
main sources appeared with a great divergence. About thirty years ago, the western 
civilization made its first headway into the empire. (A group of 1 20 Chinese students 


was just sent to the United States to be educated. Unfortunately, they were suddenly 
recalled when they were making good progress. Then these ambitious youths were forced 
to return to their country, much against their own wishes. Toward the latter part of last 
century, institutions for the study of western learning were established. The scientific 
studies seemed to be the most favorable subjects for learning. Upon the opening of this 
century, the movement of the "Open Door of China" impressed the people most strongly, 
so much so that, fortunately, the resultant of internal and external influences finds its 
greatest strength in no way impeded by partial inclination to former methods of study. 
At the present time, we have already found quite a number of Chmese students scattered 
in the leading institutions of this country as well as in Europe; the incoming steamers 
from the old Empire continually increase the number. This we believe to be a healthy 
scene, which will serve as the morning star of the revival of China. 


-S.'TJl' ^Wt^ 

The moon shone calmly down through fleeting clouds whose foamy aspect contrasted 
weirdly with the dull blue of the sky. At times a star would peep through a rift in the 
clouds and its clear cool sparkle fairly made one shiver. The wind swept across die valley 
with a low, dull murmur like the inarticulate rage of a giant captive. Everything betoken- 
ed a change, a change as irrevocable as the ceaseless swing of old Earth upon her axis. 

The bare, bleak fields lay wrapped in the white radiancy of the night sun. Soon 
Winter's cold mantle would be over them. And Winter all too soon would be slowly 
retreating before the pulsating life and warmth of a springtime. And thus the ceaseless 
cycle of seasons rolls on, thus it is that the old faces and forms pass out beyond our ken 
and are lost in Life's stern struggle. Soon we shall be numbered on the dark pages of the 
past. But behind us comes a sturdy and ever increasing line, the faces and forms of those 
to take our places in this college world. 

"The old order changeth giving place to new." 

Steadily and surely the years roll on to each new Commencement time. We see 
proud, happy faces among the throng, a father, a mother, a sister, a brother, all rejoicing 
in the honors gained. The goal of graduation has been reached after four long years. 
Did I say long? Yes, they, perhaps, are long when measured by the ceaseless routine of 
study. But, oh how short they have been as all the tender recollections of tlie past crowd 
in upon us, of jolly times, and good friends made. 


There is the chapel, the shrine of all our morning prayers, the walks where oft we 
wandered on studies bent, the dear old campus with its memories of contests lost and 
won. Far to the southward the grand old Holyoke mountains are rearing their patri- 
archal heads as somber sentinels of the valley. Many a Commencement have they seen, 
many a youth with hopes and ambitions has passed out beyond their shadow, but still firm 
and changeless they stand in the march of Time. 

As the years pass, we grow to love this beautiful valley of the mighty Connecticut, 
the meadows, the mountains, the brook, and the river. Throughout our college days they 
have been with us, and in after years they still will greet us as in our wanderings we return. 

September comes again and college doors are opened wide. But what causes that 
indefinable feeling of a vacancy to be filled, of some missing face or voice? Ah! you for- 
get the Commencement with its attendant graduation. A class of college friends and asso- 
ciates has passed out into the great world and behind them is a void, a vacancy in this 
litde world of ours. Old faces are no longer to be seen on the campus or in the class- 
rooms but in their places are new ones. And yet the gap is not bridged, nor the vac- 
ancy filled. The memories of jolly student brothers still assail us ; each had his own par- 
ticular traits and humours to be remembered. And there is a pang in our breasts that 
will remain until memory sinks into forgetfulness.

Improve Your Dairy 

"^[O matter how good a herd of cows you have, or how well they are taken care of, 
or how carefully they are fed, your efforts are more or less wasted if the milk, 
the result of it all, is not taken care of in the best way possible. 

Before cream or butter can be obtained the milk must, of course, be skimmed, 
and to do the skimming most easily, quickly and profitably you need a 



in your dairy. If the gravity or setting method 
is now used, a U. S. will increase your butter 
yield from 1-4 to 1-2. That is, if the skimmed 
milk from the old way were run through 
a U. S. Separator it would take out from 1-4 
to 1-2 as much cream as was obtained by hand 

Now there are other cream separators 
which will effect a saving over gravity systems, 
but because the U. S. Separator holds the 


For Clean Skimming 

it is a greater saver and bigger money maker than any other for it gets the most cream. 

We want to tell you how this record was made, and what it means — our attrac- 
tive new catalogue will do it, and at the same time fully explain the operation and 
construction of the U. S. with the aid of many fine and accurate illustrations of the
