c/llexander cAnderson cTVlackimmie 

HEN the tide of immigration in early days set toward America, the 
Scotchman, like many another, saw across the sea a land of greater 
jtromise than he had found in his native land. A pioneer, seeking 
in Canada or in the states a new home, he brought with him, not 
alone an infinite capacity for work, but he brought with him, also, 

a profound reverence for the wisdom found in hooks, and for his University 

whose scholars were leaders towards Life's ideals. 

From such an ancestry comes Alexander Anderson Mackimmie, a man 
who counts as his richest inheritance forbears who called the University of 
Edinborough Alma Mater, whose fealty was pledged to the Eraser clan, whose 
watchword through the years had been "Toujours jiret." 

Studying in the public schools of Nova Scotia, under teachers whose 
strict rule made every lad give his best effort to each task, the boy Mackimmie 
counted among his treasures the leather-bound books that had been his great 
grandfather's in university days. Perhaps through these books a vision came 
of the city set upon a hill, whose university is its crowning glory, and of the 
land where the scholar is peer in his own right. Perhaps then the ambition 
came which has crystallized in his life, — to learn for the love of learning, 
counting the joy of pursuit as reward in itself. 

At sixteen Mr. Mackimmie began teaching in the schools of his home 
province, continuing in this work until 1!)0(I. An opportunity for foreign 
travel then presented itself, and the next three years were silent in the south 
of Europe. Then Mackimmie turned his face homeward, and September of 
1903, found him at Princeton, a member of the Sophomore class. Princeton 
justified this bit of wisdom on her part three years later, conferring on Mr. 
Mackimmie the degree of Hachelor of Arts, magna cum laudc, and awarding 
him the Boudiuot fellowship in modern languages for lf)07. 

For the next two years Professor Mackimmie taught at Truro Academy, 
but in 1908 he came to the states, beginning his work as instructor in French 
at the Massachusetts Agricultural College, in Se}>tember of that year. In 
1909-10, he served as assistant to the Acting Dean and in 1911 received his ap- 
pointment as assistant professor of French, a position which he still holds. 



1916 




Professor Mackimmie is a teacher, not alone by instinct and training, but 
by inheritance as well. Duncan Ross, his grandfather, founded the iirst school 
in Durham, Nova Scotia, and to another kinsman, James Ross, was given the 
honor of being the first president of Dalhousie College. 

An early biographer of Washington has said, "Hereditary rank may be 
an illusion, but hereditary virtue gives a patent of innate nobleness beyond all 
the blazonry of the Herald College." Such an inheritance seems to have been 
Professor Mackimmie's, and his life has proved him worthy to inherit. 

It is Mackimmie the man whom the students honor, Mackimmie the 
teacher whom they revere. "A log with Mark Hopkins at one end and a stu- 
dent at the other end is college enough for any man," said James A. Garfield. 
Very much the same is the feeling that our students have for Professor Mac- 
kimmie. Not only are his courses valued for the instruction in French 
or in Spanish, but for the knowledge gained of men and things, a direct 
result of Professor Mackimmie's cosmopolitan training. Said one of his stu- 
dents, "A course with Mackimmie is better than a trip to Europe, for we see 
everything worth seeing and we see it witli Mackimmie's eyes." 

To him all men are brothers, and his sympathy extends from the student 
who needs his help to the Italian laborer who has learned to watch for the 
Professor and to expect his "buon giorno," a welcome echo from the home 
country. 

Alike, all who know Professor Mackimmie honor him as the scholar par 
excellence, as the friend tried and proven.

1915 Class History 




RACK ! The starter's pistol announces 

that three laps of our long race are 

accomplished, and we are starting on 

the last. Our team, which straggled 

along at the beginning, is now 
bunched n]). Some of our men have been lapped, 
but the strong nucleus which remains has come in- 
to its second wind, and every man is running 
freely. Far ahead, around the curve of the year, 
we see the finish tape. The faculty in the judges 
stand will greet us, then, and award our hard 
earned letters. But the race has not been such a 
hard one, after all. For one lap 1914 set the pace 
for us, and though it made us Avork, we showed up 
well, and had enough wind the second lap to show 
1!)1() how to do it. The third lap was easy. None 
of the team dropped out. We were surprised to 

find the coarse smoother, the hills more lexel. the heat less <ipi)ressive. 
No, it has not been bad. and if it weie not for The future ahead 
we wouldn't want to finish. I'.ut we do look forward to a future. We 
feel that the experience of this race has been the making of us. We con- 
fidently expect that the coming years will find us earning a name for our team 
and for the Alma Mater we represent. In whatever nation and on whatever 
courses our future races will be run, we shall stand for clean sport and fair 
play every time. With such for our ideals we hope to attain the Olympic of 
life. Some of us may become officials there; others may be heroes of the race, 
and at the end of the course receive the crown of laurel from the very 
Sovereign's hands. Though our history appears for the last time in this book, 
we hope that it will later be found without a blot, in the history of the W(n-ld.

History of the Class of 1916 



The study little court-room was packed. Meu 
and women fought with one another for standing 
room at the great trial. At the appointed hour, 
the '16 good men and true filed into the jury-box. 
A liush fell upon the scene; and as the Judge 
arose, wallet in hand, the fall of a pin should have 
shaken the puttv from the windows. The Judge 
began to speak : 

"1 think (laughter I it was Archie Medes who 
used to say, 'Every man has his price.' Do I hear 
a bid for the verdict? (short pause) But I di- 
gress. The purpose of this trial is to investigate 
the charge of the Aggie Glooms, represented by 
Mr. 1). I'este Gloom, that Mr. O. Joy, represent- 
ing the Joys of Aggie, has been guilty of neglect 
of duty in his dealings with the Class of 1!)1(). 
Let the trial jii'oceed." 

Mr. Joy took the stand, and Mr. (iloom began the ci-oss-exaniination. 

Q. "Were you present at the rope-pull practice and night-shirt parade in 
September, 1012 ?" 

A. "No." 

(.1. "Did you attend the six-nuui rope-pull of the following month?" 

A. "I really can't say." 

Q. "Were you present at the midyear examinations in January 1!)13 and 




1!)14." 
A. 

Q.

"I don't remember." 

"Is it true that you failed to ai>i)ear at the (Mass I!an(inet in May, 



A. "Don't rub it in." 



Q-

football game in the fall of that year?" 

A. "Emphatically no. Your Iloncu'. 1 ask permission to addi

Joy. "The occasions mentioned by Gloom were probably the only ones when 
he was with the Class and I was not. On other important occasions, I have 
not failed to "BE THERE." (applause) I was with the Class at the Chapel 
pictui'e in 1912, the sixty-man rope-pulls in 1912 and 1913, the football game 
in 1912, the cross-country runs in 1912 and 1913, the hockey match in 1912, 
the interclass track meet and debates, night-shirt parade, six-man rope-pull 
and camera tights in 1913, the bancpiet season and class baseball in 1914, 
the—." 

The Judge. "That will do. "Xough said. The jury is dismissed. On with 
the snake-dance ; let Joy be unconflned." 

In a Hash every man in the jury-box was on his feet, and the fighting yell 
of 1916 crashed through the crowded room. In the excitement. Gloom slipped 
away unobserved. A hurried collection was taken for the Judge; and with 
Joy on their shoulders the jury snake-danced out of the court-room, singing 
that sweet old wheeze: 

"It ain't goin' to rain anyliow, anyhow. 

It ain't goin' to rain 

Anvliow."

Minis is a little place and its High School 
is smaller still, yet here is a specimen that 
proves its sterling worth. The center of things 
intellectual, tlie Hub should be given some 
credit for this member of the species as he ori- 
ginated there in January, 1895. In Sophomore 
year he unearthed latent track ability that 
nearly took our breath away. But this is not 
all; he used his pen so handily that he earned 
a place as an artist. "Aik's" latest adventure 
was as a baggage smasher. He took the coin 
alriglit, but failed to smash the trunks.

Yes, "Andy" is ambitious, but it is not the 
ambition that Anthony attributed to Caesar, it is 
not a grievous fault, and "Andy" is an "honor- 
able man." Since the 24th of November, 1894, 
he has acquired many accomplishments, both in 
and out of Somerville. He can tickle the 
ivories, write class songs, dance — yes even on a 
carpet, but of course it must be a rag carpet. 
He expects to major in economics. If this is so 
we hope that he will profit by past experience, 
and not take it upon himself to torture posterity 
by compiling reference books on such dry sub- 
jects as "The Economic Factors in the Produc- 
tion of Extra Dry Champagne."

"Andy" is one of the most dignified men of 
the class. He has been with us ever since those 
far off "freshie" days and during the manv 
years of toil and struggle, his dignity has often 
been deeply and terribly shocked. He has 
worlds of friends and we predict a bright fu- 
ture for him. He was born at Manchester by 
the Sea and has lived in Manchester ever since. 
\^'hether or not he is to return to the old home 
fire-side and there take up the job of r 
apples, peaches and plums on the cold rock- 
bound shores of his native village lie has not 
told us.

This product of Hubbardston's rugged hills, 
first noticed their ancient grandeur on January 
23, 1890, but since that time, has seen fit to re- 
move himself to Marshfield, Mass. Early in 
life he was a very observing child, and while 
very young, discovered that a butterfly was dif- 
ferent from a bee, not only in looks but in ac- 
tions. This was the beginning of "Barnesy's" 
entomological career. He hiked to Mt. Hermon, 
assimilated enough knowledge to enter M. A. C. 
During the summer he keeps the seaweed from 
becoming too troublesome on the little old farm. 



Without a doubt.

"Fred" is a bear at this natural history stuff. 
Clams are his especial hobby, and his native 
heath offers exceptional opportunities to study 
them in their cozy homes. He claims that the 
clam is a near relative of the ant on account 
of its similar abode, and he always refers to 
them as the NaCIH20 Armoured Mud Ant, 
Barnes. He claims also that a clam can hit a 
person in the eye with all the invidious accu- 
racy of a grapefruit. When the migration is at 
its height you cannot see the sun for days at a 
time in cloudy weather, "Barnesy" says. His 
favorite book is the Amherst to Plymouth time- 
table. Fred was born where the cordage works 
now stands on March 26, 1894.

"Herb" is a product of Newark, Delaware, 
and boasts of having the same birthday as 
Abraham Lincoln, as February 12 saw his ad- 
vent into this world. The date of his removal 
to Doylestown, Pa., is not recorded. But at the 
time of his birth it was recorded in the old 
family Bible, "a very bright child, very hand- 
some, and hath a charming complexion." After 
breezing through Doylestown High, "Herb" did 
up Worcester Academy. Entering M. A. C. 
"Herb" heeded the sirens of 16. and is now 
among that favored band (not the cadet band). 
His creamy complexion caused him to major in 
dairying; summers he spends as an aide de 
camp in a Nantasket hotel.

"Nubs" who is one of the real Carusos of the 
class, was blasted out of the marble of Mon- 
pelier, Vt., on May 11, 1894, later he moved to 
Framingham, Mass. "Nubs" led the class at 
both of its yearly attempts at singing and the 
fact that he is not yet in the asylum is one fine 
argument for his sanity. "Nubs" and "Ty" 
roomed one night at the "Bird's," but the sopho- 
mores went on a spree, and they beat it to the 
farmhouse. We venture to assert that the ani- 
mals on "Nubs' " farm will acquire a taste for 
good music in the days that are to come.

imitate the agonized whoops of prehistoric 
monsters to perfection. What the Bloke would 
do if Boyer should decide to leave college and 
take up bugling as a profession is a question 
which everv lo\al Aggie man should ask him-

"Bill" doesn't come from South America even 
if his name does point that way. He ripened off 
with the rest of the cucumbers of Leominster, 
Mass., on October 2, 1893. After a few years 
he proceeded to run Leominster High School for 
four years, then he came to "Aggie." "Gilbert 
Hall" claimed him first, where the nearness to 
the dog cart always proved a menace to early 
rising. While he doesn't pose as a fusser, "Bill" 
boasts of being a member of the postage stamp 
club, and runs back home at every opportunity. 
He is majoring in agronomy, and devotes his 
summer months to joshing the stenogs in one of 
Leominster's offices.

"Cliilde Harold luitli the curly locks of broiun." 

Buckland. 

And it came to pass that on August 3, 1894, 
just as the clock on the Buckland Grange struck 
thirteen, a child appeared who was christened 
Harold. Aging with the passing years, and 
growing handsomer all the time, he at last 
bought a pair of store shoes and came to Am- 
herst to try and shake off the lethargy that had 
settled down upon his palsied brain. He has 
succeeded very well, and makes a good Sixteen 
man in spite of his previous associations. 
"Chick" stayed out a year to get things into 
line down at the cow parlor, and he comes to 
us chastened by the experience. 

"His only crime — that most respleiidant hair." 
Ladies and gentlemen: If while seated at the 
table quietly enjoying one of your daily meals, 
you should ever be interrupted by a gruflf and 
grumbling voice growling in your ear, "it's a 
wonder you wouldn't leave a little for the dog," 
or some equal bit of premature sarcasm, you 
would know at once that it was "Bone." Ever 
since February 20, 1894, the world has been re- 
tarded by the growing flagrancy of this un- 
definable human clement, and the city of Lowell 
has suffered most. Just how the tone of con- 
versation runs when engaged in jocose battle 
with women we do not know, but we are going 
to make a prophecy, her name will be "Ann 
Ghorra Gctta." Poultry offers a means of easy 
picking for "Bone,"

"Card" put on his mortal coil in Sumter, S. 
C, August 20, 1892. During his brief stay in 
the South he made exhaustive studies of the 
enemies of cotton and developed a method of 
inoculating the boll weavil with sleeping sick- 
ness, thereby rendering the insect harmless, 
while the vibration of its snores caused the 
staple to shake to the ground, thus saving pick- 
ing costs. Here at college he is in the seventh 
heaven whenever he is towing a wren about at 
a local crawl. Swartzie and he used to dance 
all the evening at the West Experiment, and in 
the morning pass in a slip for "sweeping 3

"Chis" had his first experience in the 
athletic line June 29, 1894, when he 
astonished the natives of Somerville by running 
across the room and drop kicking the puck 
across the plate for a perfect outdrop. He later 
moved to Melrose High School in order that he 
might attend Melrose High School along with 
various other celebrities. Finally Chis landed 
at M. A. C. and after looking over the green- 
houses he announced that they suited his fancy 
so he removed his old straw hat and went after 
the books. Summers "Chis' is engaged in a 
variety of useful and ornamental work, largely 
of the former or the latter variety. 

"Just an ordinary easy-going cuss, 
But like the ordinary run of men, 
No better or no ivuss." 
"Luckey" appeared in Chicopee in the sum-

tempted to convert the morals of the town into 
cold cash by publishing the Chicopee News. 
This aroused "Luckey's" anger so he left. North- 
field among the quiet hills and near the Semi- 
nary girls for which the town is known was 
his next habitate. Here he grew and flourished 
wliile he developed his easy smile. What helps 
him most is the habit of waiting for opportuni- 
ties a[id of having a patient but restless mind.

Sumner doesn't say much, but just looks on 
while others heave the bull. And he gets away 
with all but Duncan's stuff. In solid "Sum" 
used to sit and scratch his head, and after class 
brush the ivory dust off his shoulders in 
clouds. He invented the Coleman Rotat- 
ing Arm Motion which is so widely used in 
basketball by the frosh. Doc. Bowen thinks 
that as a handy man about the house Sumner 
fills the prescription very well. A salvo of 
twenty-one guns rumbled from the forts around 
Mendon on September i, 1894, and the good 
people of the town gave a toast to the newly- 
born infant progeny over glasses of switchel.

"Bill" was first seen running through Wilton, 
Conn., on December 13, 1891, and he's been run-

wonder why Bill didn't run after the girls, but 
now the secret is out. A certificate in the 
"Fuss by mail" school explains it, and also 
helps to explain why the delivery in Amherst 
is so slow. "Bill" says that he should worry 
as he can write six letters for the price of a 
trip to "Hamp." "Bill's" chest and smile are 
famous wherever English is spoken. "Bill" 
picked plant pathology because as he said the 
natives would think that he was a wonder not 
knowing what p. p. was. Summers are devoted 
by our hero to farming, fussing, peddling Ice

His fondest dream is to one day own a dog 
cart for ladies. 

An attendant will always be at hand to 
sooth dogs that are too hot, and to explain 
to timid patrons that the upholstering in the 
shiny little capsules contains no canine ele- 
ment, it being merely ham hamberg with 
tights on. "Dan" is a hard worker, and his 
only vice is the toothpick and gum habit.

Caw-caw! Caw! Caw! What's that. A 
crow ? Yes, a redheaded crow, a redheaded 
crow from Mendon, a redheaded crow from 
Mendon High School. He has received many 
appellations among them being "Red," "Cue- 
ball," and "Cud." He was given the first 
handle in September, 1893, soon after his 
debut into the world of affairs at Mendon. 
Nothinf has ever been known to stop "Red," 
not even a stone wall. "Red" confessed all this 
to the board so that he hereto sets his hand

In Mendon in September, 1892, Davis 
first made his place in the harmony of 
things and the fauna of the town. The 
impetus thus received still follows him, else 
why should he live apart from man and work 
so diligently at Gaskill's. This is the reason 
why he is so little seen around the Campus. 
Agriculture early claimed attention of "Dave," 
so that, he naturally gravitated toward the 
center of agriculture in the old Bay State, M. 
A. C. Here he learned that quality not quantity 
counted. "Now," quoth Dave, "I can go back 
to Hopedale in gladness of heart. 

"Judtjc him not by his iietioiis." 
"Dick" or "Susie", as he is frequently called, 
first began to race around the town of Amherst 
on October 12, 1893. Before long he toddled out 
to North Amherst, and began to grow. In the 
fall of 1912 he appeared on the campus with a 
pencil over his ear, and a bewildered look on 
his countenance. He occasionally says things in 
class meetings, and is some smart boy in the 
class room. He is one of North Amherst's fore- 
most citizens, and when his landscape poten- 
tialities are fully developed, that town will be 
some beauty spot. He sometimes signs himself,

"W'allie" came to us in body during the 
sophomore year, although he was with us in 
spirit even as special during our infant days. 
"Wallie" was born in the town of Jefferson, 
Ohio, March 3, 1890, moved to Geneva, O., and 
attended the high school there. Landinq; at M. 
A. C, he became an adopted member of the 
West Somerville gang, hanging out along with 
"Nutsy." "Wallie" is very solicitious of the 
freshmen and always strives to get them going 
in the right path, and we hunch that he succeeds 
very well. A leader in class affairs, and a 
friend of all, he is one of the big men of 1916. 
Pomology is the major and shade tree doctor- 
ing is the summer work of our hero and he says 
that he is going to South America, when he 
graduates.

He was born in the shadow of the Ever Ready 
shoe factory, in time for breakfast, on August 
5, 1894. Summers he lets off surplus energy by 
welting shoes. He is working on a plan for 
saving time by utilizing the tongue of the shoe 
for moistening the vamps. It seems that he 
has already soled his patent and has become 
quite welt to do; at least he always is well 
heeled. He is now thinking upper scheme for 
leaving the ends of laces plain, thus abolishing 
the tipping evil. "Ray" asserts that the first 
place a shoe goes is its last. 

"For tliy sake, tobacco, I'd do anything hut die." 
"Esty" gets more fun out of his pipe than most 
fellows do out of a girl. He's always got the 
"makins" and he is never leary about handing 
them out to the gang. "Esty" first disturbed the 
quiet of Old Orchard, Maine, on September 17, 

1893, and from thence went to Lancaster where 
he puffed his way through the High School. 
He is one of the Gilbert Hall gang and it was 
there that he learned the handiness of the dog 
cart. "Esty" made a name for himself b\' doing 
eighteen weeks Aggie Industry during the 
Easter vacation. For this he was awarded a 
leather volume entitled "Foresight as an 
economic factor in co-operation."

"Charlie" is another of our bug men. He has 
some drag with the faculty, but he never has 
to use the same as he is a good scholar as well 
as a good athlete. "Charlie" began to study 
entomology at State College, Penn., on June 8, 

1894, continuing his studies after he moved to 
Amherst. "Charlie" started in Zoology and as 
Les was good in Physics and Ag'o'y, they had it 
pretty soft. During the summer, "Charlie" in- 
spects nurseries (not the day kind). "Ent," as 
has been hinted, is his guiding star.

On November 4, 1894, a little piece of pink 
ribbon was hung on the door knob of a certain 
house in Maiden; the people assembled in the 
town square to listen to the town crier proclaim

Some men are born wild, and some are born 
wild, or in other words some are savages and 
others are not tame. "Bud" is not a savage, 
neither is he tame. But he is not entirely to 
blame, for Millis was a wilderness on July 16, 
1893, and after casting off the personage of Mr. 
Fisher on the town of Millbury, which used to 
be quiet, for which is now a roaring bedlam, 
felt relieved. At M. A. C. "Bud" instilled into 
the "hash house crew" that spirit of modified 
rough-house, which causes men to wear armor 
plate to protect themselves from ricocheting 
biscuits and dish rags.

that of this House of Kuppenheimer model. The 
record was made on August 22, 1895, and ever 
since that time the tax collectors yearly look 
back over the books to see how long it will be 
before they can soak him for a poll tax. It is 
during one of his energetic periods of pulling 
toward him on his pipe that he usually utters 
his famous ejaculation, "Yes by god." Acushnet

He appeared in our midst smiling serenely as 
the summer sun-kissed Cape Cod Bay in an off

prepared to stay among us. His early ambition 
was to raise clams on the far famed Duxbury 
clam fiats, so during his career in the Duxbury 
High School he made arrangements to acquire 
a section of that same well known home of the 
Mollusea. On personal investigation into the 
matter, he decided that for a person of his easy

arduously accelerating.

must be some -which, when placed in the proper

that his qualifications made him eligible for

Sunderland raises splendid onions and tobac-

cautiously but steadily gleaned all the kernels 
of knowledge from the Sunderland institutions 
of learning, and then tackled Mt. Hermon. 
Smothering an almost overoowering desire to 
become a politician, he decided to come to 
Aggie and delve in the mysteries of the bovine 
industry. Much latent ability has manifested 
itself since his advent among us; sustained 
silence; the capacity to enjoy "Doc" Peters' 
chem course, and the ability to smile and still 
be a villian. He majors in animal husbandry. 
Occasionally he misses the target and then his 
name looks like.

Saxonville's sturdy stock never produced a 
likelier scion than Stanley Willie. August 3, 
1891, was his natal day. A peculiar aversion 
for tobacco smoke and noise led him to choose 
Brook's Farm for a habitat. An avowed woman 
hater, he vainly tries to gratify his affectionate 
and romantic disposition by casting adoring 
glances from the gallery of the dance hall upon 
the fair ones as they whirl by. College passed, 
he plans to build glass houses and raise the 
windows in them.

"Bill" is a product of the valley, as he was

Nevertheless Bill will make a good farmer, for

The eleventh of November, 1895. Yes, that 
was when he started, and he is still going 
some. He took his P. G. at Fitchburg High 
and when he came to the Massachusetts Know- 
lege Works there were a lot of facts stuck up 
there in the oatmeal. He draws upon this sup- 
ply of facts cautiously from time to time, and 
even now cracks a book only occasionally to 
see how far the fellows have progressed. Last

opened her sleepy eyes on the morning of Apri 
23, 1894, shook the maple syrup from them and 
gazed on the miniature of that which you now

before we knew him. When he breezed into 
M. A. C. he gave the place the once over and 
yipped over the following, 

"A woodsman I was meant to be, 

"I'll majorize in forestry."

out others. Summers our hero makes fishing

He has a wonderful brain, and like all master 
minds his methods baffle us. Born in said 
Williamsburg, March 9, 1896, he readily ab- 
sorbed all available knowledge there and re- 
peated the process at Northampton High before 
being caught by the deluge that brought him to

is hope for others. A pufl^ of smoke landed him

Twenty-two years ago on September 27, 1892, 
no one in Topsfield knew that on that day a 
first squad football man had appeared in their 
community. They only imperfectly realized 
when "Perley" went to Salem High. Today 
they see that the years have developed a man 
sure of foot, quick of eye, and keen in judg- 
ment, who strives unceasingly to uphold the 
honor of the team that old Aggie sends out. 
This course in football is merely a preparation 
for his course in General Agriculture and later 
life on the farm. He wishes to learn the most 
dependable way of receiving a loving tap from 
some ungentle member of his bovine stock, as 
she side wheels with her off foot and the tin 
pail beats a merry tattoo against the wall. He 
surely will be toughened for the fray and we

"Jeff" the boy artist. He appeared in Mel- 
rose, November 8, 1892. A flaxen haired child 
with a lusty pair of lungs, he was welcomed 
as a successor to his father, a preacher. We 
fear that these fond hopes are doomed to dis- 
appointment. "Jeff" is the last member of the 
Brook's Farm trio. Unparalled fame is his as 
the instigator of the "Noahs Ark" harrangue. 
He plans to major in landscape.

New Britain, little knew that an embryonic 
celebrity, arrived in its midst upon January 24, 
1894, but so genius has arrived unheralded 
since the dawn of history. A hopeless baseball 
fiend at seven years, "Eddie" defied his parents 
and wore a baseball uniform for pajamas. 
Since then he has moved to Dorchester, where 
he developed the commendable home-run habit. 
He plans to devote his spare moments to fruit 
growing, and incidentally gleans a bit of 
pomology.

Given a rod or a gun and the whole territory 
of the towns of Belchertown and Shutesbury to 
roam over, "Nap" is content. It was he who 
brought down the first deer captured by a stu- 
dent of M. A. C. during his freshman year and 
he has kept up the record of the college well. 
He started to stalk the elusive game in the 
town of Waltham on the date of March 28, 
1894. Later he moved to the I. W. W. city and 
"Nap" also joined the I Won't Work club, and 
he has never resigned. Entering this place 
he saw the error of his ways and is in a fair 
way to join the Flea Clippers. His only dis- 
sipation is a major in Forestry, but it is supple- 
mented by the use of the wood on divers occa- 
sions. He says that his summer work is being 
a gentleman so that we presume that he does 
not consider the life of a student that of a regu- 
lar Chesterfield.

his talk though light is often sound. When pro-

probably to the fact that he comes from the

his later works, one of which, "How to be a

originated in Newburyport, January 9, 1895,

arousing it from its slumbers until it resounds 
and reverberates from side to side with rough 
house. His finishing school for this was in 
East Entry, where he was always able to hold 
his own. That means that he is a good man. 
He has elected Floriculture along with Lyford,

It was a hot sultry day, the thirtieth of July, 
1894, that "Shy," short for Shylock, breezed in 
on this patient and long suffering world at 
Metheun. Both his fists were doubled tight and 
he gave vent to a lusty yell that would have 
made further freshmen shake with fear. 
Methuen High shaped his plastic mind and 
gave him the impetus to seek an education in 
General Agriculture. Ere he came to Amherst 
town, he patronized Raymonds also Filenes 
Automatic Bargain Basement as his clothiers, 
but on the Campus he learned that a pair of 
drill pants, a red jersey and a few other inci- 
dentals would be his demands. In his Freshman 
year he earned a reputation as a scrapper and 
ever since he has been a belligerent in all the 
class affairs.

Lean enough to be thought a good student, 
and quiet enough to be thought a wise man. 
These are the two oredominating traits of this 
exceptionally reticent young man. He comes from 
Natick where on the nineteenth of July, 1893, 
was first brought the light of day to his eyes. 
He elected Floriculture as he could then indulge 
his retrospective turn of mind by communing 
silently with the flowers as they nodded silently 
at his great but unexpressed thoughts.

people of Boston were summoned on November 
8, 1891, to congratulate the Mahans upon the 
advent of this fellow. Congratulations were 
forgotten in wonder which has been shared by 
all who have met him since, because of the 
unruffled sweetness depicted on his face. His 
benign influence was next felt at St. Paul's 
Prep. School, Garden City, N. Y. After getting 
through there he waddled up to Aggie and 
went in to the pomology business. He is 
George Ray's side partner in the summer time.

"Pete," as this elongated specimen from the

few men in the class of 1916, who have fooled 
the registrar of the college after having been 
told, not in jest, that the said registrar would 
cause them to leave college, heading a long 
line and carrying proudly (?) the banner with 
the word "stuck" blazoned forth to the world. 
The fact that there was a lazy southern breeze 
blowing through Pittsfield on April 22, 1894, 
probably accounts for "Pete's" disinclination to 
engage too strenuously in the more laborious 
things of life. Pittsfield High is responsible for 
"Pete" and pomology is why he stays. During 
the past summer he paraded around the country 
under different aliases as a tree doctor.

"Charlie" conducts himself in a very sedate

semi-circular smile, and signs his checks, 

"It's lulser being good tlian bad, 
It's safer being meek than fierce." 
He made his advent into this green and 
pleasant world in the year of our Lord, 1895, 
at Lynn, journeying from thence to North 
Middleboro. By the time seventeen summers 
had passed over his grave young head he felt 
himself fitted to cope with the problems of theo- 
retical agriculture. All through the winter he 
may be found every afternoon patiently chasing 
his steel bowed glasses around the track. Dull 
care is his besetting sin, but the training table 
alwavs kick because he eats all the prunes and 
drinks all the milk. He'll never learn.

man on the campus. Dutch was a valuable 
man in surveying field-work, his "I say, old 
chappie, wobble it about a bit" being audible 
for miles. He is passionately fond of food, 
and uses it at nearly every meal. 
Cheerfully,

We hope to absorb some needed in-

clothes, which speak of hours of suffocation 
under an ostermoor. A pamphlet, bound to be 
a success but not to hold together, and bearing 
the Selkregg coat of arms will shortly appear, 
entitled, "Tired Nature's Cheap Restorer, or 
How to use both sides of a mattress." He ought 
to be able to impress, not to say confuse, about 
any girl in this neck of woods. Born October 9,

"Don" is a business man from the ground up. 
And he has a way, too (maybe it's those don't- 
hit-me-I'm-a-wounded-fawn eyes) of making un- 
satisfactory professors see things in the proper 
light. Although he runs a large automobile 
for someone higher up during odd hours, "Don" 
has never entirely lost the common touch. One 
of his greatest achievements since coming here 
is the living down of a nickname. You have 
got to hand it to a man who can do that in 
collge, say we. Born August 6, 1894.

The Amalgamated American Society of 
Students received this new member on 
June 4, 1892, the place of reception be- 
ing Boston, Mass. He prepared for the ordeal 
at Thayer Academy and by living at Thayer's 
during his freshman year. When every vaca- 
tion starts he laboriously climbs up to Pittsfield, 
Mass. The only thing that the rest of the 
board has against Pete is his inveterate desire 
to pun, but as Marc Antony remarked when they 
told him that Cleopatra was stringing him, 
"there'll be others." Pete majors in landscape 
and spends the summers in lobster farming 
down in Hanover, Mass.

"Anon I marvel luhat thou art." 
This Knight Errant claims Cleveland, Ohio, 
as natal burg. Since June 4, 1892, his tireless 
quest has been for knowledge. He spoke two 
languages before he learned to walk, and at 
the end of two years the only thing that could 
check his plaintive wail was a Greek lexicon. 
This desire for knowledge drove him from the 
wild west into the Bay State, and having de- 
cided to study Forestry came to Aggie. Here 
his aesthetic and literary tastes have found a 
chance to boil over at the home of Miss Goess- 
man. His recitations are a source of wonder, 
and greatly perplex his satalites "Romey" and 
Gilmore. 

"A re-vnlving fragment of the Paleozoic aye

It was one of the fairest days of the whole 
year of 1892, that on which Abe first saw Bos- 
ton, namely August 13. The crooked streets 
and the alleys were almost Riverside drives be- 
cause, just because "Abe" was a smiling. So 
he moved to Roxbury and brightened up that 
already glistening suburb. "Abe" began to 
be a regular guy. He would stand on 
the street corners and talk to Tom Dillon for 
hours, and it was even "Abe" who engineered 
that send off. But "Abe" could play football and 
he could also pitch other things besides pennies, 
so that he was classed as one of the regular 
athletes. A horrible fate now overtook "Abe." 
Both blows fell at once. He majored in Plant 
Pathology and Physiology and he wants to 
live in Clark Hall during the summer.

Let me make your songs and I will make 
your laws. This was the challenge that 
"Ducky" sent to Villa. Owing to the unsettled 
affairs in Mexico he has not yet heard from 
the momentous undertaking-. However, he opto- 
mistically hopes to be the savior of the swarthy 
Mexicans by upliftinp' their national collection 
of sentimental expression. "Ducky" first sang 
in Dorchester on August 8, 1894. There he 
spent his spare time until the fall of 1912. As 
his part toward the advancement of landscape 
architecture he is working on an aeolian harp 
that will play all the latest rags. This is to 
attract the poor to the parks that they may 
dance, and then acquire the habit of strolling 
in the beauty spots of the city. We wish him 
success for his problem has great sociological 
bearing.

"The grace and versatility of tlie man." 
Stockbridge Club; Freshman Banquet Com- 
mittee; Class Vice-President. 

This horny handed son of the soil commenced 
his brilliant career November 25, 1891, in the 
town of New Lisbon, N. Y., and came to us 
from Cooperstown. He keeps his matrimonial 
complications so quiet that no one ever mis- 
trusted that he was a benedict. Always a loyal 
member of '16 his classmates, will long remember 
his splendid display of perseverance and detec- 
tive abilities shown at old Hadley. Making 
himself a general farmer, he is giving one more 
N. V. farm a chance to amount to something.

It beats all what prolonged sufiFering will do 
to a man. Notice, aggressive reader, those 
lines of worry about his tired eyes. This comes 
from living next door to the L W. W. Time- 
bomb Works. On December i, 1894, the habit 
of living in Lawrence began to take hold of 
Alfred, and it has grown upon him since to an 
alarming extent. A kid brought up in such a 
place really doesn't have a fair chance. He at- 
tended the Lawrence High, and was in the 
same class with a number of other young men 
of about the same age. He promoted and won 
the first Chicle Chewing Contest ever held in 
Essex county, and was one of the first to use 
the crouching start in this branch of athletics. 

"Not much talk, a great sweet silence." 
This forty horse power silence machine is a 
quiet advertisement for Fitchburg, Mass. Janu- 
ary- 9, 1894, was the date of his entrance into 
that rugged city and although all of the mills 
did not shut down the event was one of great 
importance to the metropolis. He was gradu- 
ated from the Fitchburg Hicjh School and then 
came up to Aggie to learn how to be a teacher 
under the able direction of "Pop" Hart. Silence 
being golden, Uppie proved to be a veritable 
Alaska, but he showed us all up by landing one 
of the Botany prizes. No! he doesn't spend his 
summers as cheer leader in a deaf and dumb 
asylum, but weeds carrots on a market garden 
farm.

"Hark! from the tombs a doleful sound." 

Glee Club (i, 2) ; <J> 2 K- 

"Luther's" advent into this world of mortal 
woes, if the Maiden records do not lie, occured 
upon September 17, 1889. Maiden must have 
an extremely healthful climate, for "Luther" 
speedily developed until at present he actually 
exhumes an atmosphere of strength and power. 
His dry grin and solemn expression belie the 
naive and lamblike spirit that dwell within. 
His sojourn at Mt. Hermon accounts for his 
prophetic insight. Pomology is his major; 
Hither blight and San Jose's scale. 
While "Luther" renders apples, cale. 
Ponderously,

Perchance you meet a cute little gent with 
lemon hair, a rather snobbish nose, a girlish 
complexion, big innocent blue eyes, and a T. R. 
grin, that's "Herbie." Born in Westford, 
September 26, 1893, his three decker brain easily 
won him honors at the Westford Academy. Ap- 
pearances are often deceitful and "Herbie" is 
no exception. He lived for two years at Brook's 
Farm, and much of the notoriety gained for 
this place was due to his diabolical innovations. 
While here he organized the Hall and Walkden 
Commissary Institution, which was dissolved 
because he could not buy bread without heels 
or pies with five quarters. A Westford fruit 
farm tolerates him summers, and he majors in 
floriculture.

This adventitious bud from the cranberry 
bogs first made its appearance in South Har- 
wich, September 25, 1894. The salt air seemed 
to have agreed with "Heine," and one shudders 
to think what the product would have been if 
a goodly portion of such a husky carcas had 
not been turned up to feet. He was a scarlet 
fever patient, and outside diversions such as 
nocturnal pillages, a shaved head, and a pretty 
nurse seemed to have rather peeved him. His 
major is agriculture.

"Be to his virtue kind." 

M A. C C. A.; C. C 

The usual way to get into East Dover is to 
be born in. "Ev" arrived in the normal way, 
on July 7, 1892. One would have imagined 
that he would have stayed there, but you can't 
keep genius down so he came out to Brattleboro 
for a preparatory education. Don't you believe 
that he is a genius? Listen! His earliest re- 
corded utterance was "Lord, I wonder what 
fool it was first invented kissing." However, 
college life sadly undermined his fine young 
character so that he now totes a skirt. We are 
deeply grieved that he should have fallen from 
the uprightness of his ways, but we hope for 
the best. His chief characteristic is to talk little 
and say much. He elects agricultural education. 



"It is a delightful task 

To teach the young idea how to shoot." 
Rifle Team (i, 2) ; B K *• 
This young idea learned how to shoot before 
he came to M. A. C, so when he did come he 
quite materially benefited the rifle team in sus- 
taining its nation wide reputation. At a certain 
time on March 7, 1S93, all the Waltham 
watches stopped running and covered their 
faces with their hands, for "Ray" came to 
town. "Ray" stayed in the watch city just long 
enough to wheedle his way through the high 
school, and since then has been stowed away 
at Stow. His major study is Pomology, and 
needless to say a cider mill will be on his 
plantation, as should be the case with every 
good pomologist. 



"Thou art become one of us." 
We are not sure just where he came from, 
having just arrived this fall. Boston didn't 
know it, at the time, but it was given a big 
boost in celebrating Patriot's Day in 1890, when 
this fellow began to eat baked beans. He 
graduated from Everett High and now lives in 
Dorchester. He elects Pomology which leads 
us to believe that he is fond of fruit, especially 
dates with peaches.

"TIch", as he is popularly known, is a York 
state product, having been foisted into Mount 
Vernon, N. Y., on February 5, 1893. Lately 
"Tich" has been claiming Atlanta, Georgia, as 
his home, but as he hasn't got that Southern 
drawl down the way that he has the York lingo 
we all think of him as being a N'Yorker. When 
"Tich" starts to sell you a "mem" book you 
might as well buy as you will have to do so 
sometime anyway. He holds the white welter- 
weight rough housing championship of the 
East entry, having won the same from the fa- 
mous Patterson-Little combination in a ten 
round go. His room is a living replica of a 
well arranged zoo. Poultry is his major and 
farming a summer dissipation.

This exponent of how to climb nearest to 
heaven all at once, came to us from Brooklyn, 
N. Y. He imbibed little of the great white way 
(except Burt) so that he brought us no wine, 
music, or the gushing voices of fairy damsels. 
However, he did bring us a good heart as any- 
one that knows him will testify. If there is 
any one thing that will make him sore it is to 
have them refer to Boston as the Hub of the 
Universe. "Hubs are all right," says Whit, 
"but the tire is the part that bears the load 
and believe me. New York is some tire in the 
general scheme of things. I've known Brooklyn 
since March 29, 1894, and you can tuck the fact 
that she is there under your Stetson and you'll 
have the truth and nothing else up there." 
Turning to his secretary, he remarked, "Fill out 
that major card for General Agriculture, the 
simple life for mine. Long yell for Manual, 




"Jerusalem the Golden." 
Born in Boston, August 6, 1893, this man 
rapidly outgrew the limits of his natal town, 
and moved to Maiden. From there he migrated 
to M. A. C. and is now trying to have "Baldy" 
make a pomologist out of him. What more will 
fall to his lot we can't tell. All his quizz pa-

"Even though vanquished he could argue still." 

Class Hockey (i). 

Wildon was born December 9, 1893, in 
Everett, soon after moving to Melrose High- 
lands, where he made Melrose High School fa- 
mous. Wildon and Chisholm once roomed to- 
gether, and when "Chis" was trying to prove a 
pin was sharp, Wildon was trying to prove the 
head was round and neither of them came to the 
point. Wildon's keenness for argument once led 
him to interrupt a conversation of a couple of 
friends who were talking about dolphins, with 
the savage remark that dolls couldn't swim and 
he knew it. Floriculture seems to attract the 
fancy of this fellow and treated with his consis- 
tent energy and ability, it ought to prove pro- 
fitable for him.

It is many moons since Harold Curtis, short 
for "Whistle,'' brushed the accumulated B 
& M road bed from his face as he 
alighted in Amherst. He ground through two 
vears of work and then responded to the call 
of the road. His travels took him first to 
Kansas and the wheat harvests, then to the 
Northwest, eventually he landed' in Canada. 
At length after two years of varied ex- 
perience he returned to face the row of books 
long since grown dusty on his book shelf. 
He plaved hockey with that bunch of aces in 
the winters of 1910-11, 1911-12 and aches to see 
the ice cover the pond once more. He origi- 
nated in Maiden, yet has decided to make a 
farmer of himself; it was to this end that he

1 know not how many of Sixteen 's men 

Are gathered together tonight, 
Nor how many are missed from among von, 

Where the song and the langh are light. 
Bnt I do know that mirth and good cheer abound, 

That the halls with merriment ring, 
And that courage and truth and honor and love 

Resound in the songs you sing. 

May the years to come be full of such joy 

As tonight you squander free, 
Brimming life's cup with the wine of truth. 

Flooding with love, life's sea. 
But more! May yoiir loyalty never fail 

To the college we all hold dear. 
And may tender love of this class of ours 

Grow with each passing year. 

For Sixteen stands for all that is true, 

Everytliing that is valiant and strong; 
^Mtli courage she strives to uphold the right 

Trampling to earth the wrong. 
Borne on by you to the distant goal. 

Though dying she'll win the fight; 
Heaven bless her, the class we all adore I 

And God bless you boys, — Good night !

Sophomore History 




Voice — "Yes dear, 1917 is back at lier post. 
The experience of last year has taught ns many 
lessons that have already begun to make them- 
selves noticeable." 

As the operator has given us the exclusive use 
of the phone for fifteen minutes, I shall reveal to 
you some things that are not very widely known. 

Voice — "Now dear, please do not interrupt me 
so frequently, or I shall never get my story begun. 
It is a little diflQcult to know just where to begin ; 
but I think one of the greatest and most valuable 
lessons was learned during the banquet season. 
During the season new leaders and men well 
worthy of that title were brought to the front; 
they all concentrated their energies in the same 
direction, that of getting the officers safely to the 
banqiiet. This, we failed to do ; but we gained 

more in class spirit and class unity than we might have done had we succeeded 
in having our oflScers with us at the banquet." 

Voice — "We sure have the pep with us this year all right, all right. The 
sixty man rope pull was like taking candy away from a baby. We must not, 
however, judge our new rivals too severely, lest our action prove fatal to us. 
On the other hand our object is to take 1918 "under the shadow of our wing," 
and guide and direct her in the path that shall eventually lead her to a better 
and fuller knowledge of what Old Aggie expects of her." 

Voice — "Oh no, we are well represented in athletics. We had a repre- 
sentative on every Varsity team last year with the exception of baseball ; and 
this year the prospects are extremely bright for us." 

"In the annual in-door track meet we made some pretty exhibits, yet 1916 
managed to run off with a larger score than ours. We were close upon the 
trail of 1916, and far in advance of either 1914 or 1915." 

Voice — "Yes, it is true that our numbers have been diminished a little; 
but those of us that remain are a unit working for the interests of Old Aggie 
in producing men that shall be known as leaders of men.''

Ye Chronicles of 1918 




And it came to pass in the niontli of cider and 
corn roasts, that a vast multitude assembled at 
the tabernacle of learning. Among these were 
divers husbandmen skilled in knowledge, where- 
fore they wore peach down on the upper lip, and 
behaved always with wonderous dignity, and 
verily these were the Seniors. 

Juniors there were also, men versed in the 
world, and in the wiles of damsels, nomads roving 
from time to time o'er mountain and o'er river. 

And lo and behold, it was observed that a new 
tribe had appeared at the tabernacle — striplings 
of small stature, but of pleasing mien, and the 
Juniors and Seniors spake to one another, saying, 

"Verily these are goodly youths, full of promise. 
We must name them Freshmen, albeit a better 
title is assuredly their due." 

And it came to pass that the Juniors gave the Freshmen warning "Be not 
over bold, for there lurks in these precincts a tribe of wild Malekites — Phili- 
stines and men of Belial. Sophomores they are called, which is yiddish for 
rough necks. Go not near them for they will seek to devour you, even as a 
hungry man devours hash house steak." 

But the Frosh were in no wise dismayed, and when their enemy came to 
battle, they did but laugh satirically in the faces of the Malekites. On this 
account were the Sophs very wroth, and made bold to hurl divers Freshmen 
in the pond, even as Joashadab cast bread upon the waters, even as the ass 
kicked Balaam into the Galilee. 

Thus the Sophs amused themselves, taking pleasure in childish diversions 
which was but fitting and proper, for they had still to learn good manners, 
and though they were Sophs they were by no means sophisticated. 

In full measure have the Freshmen entered into the work of the taber- 
nacle, laboring earnestly under the high priest "Prexy." As they have been 
modest so have they been great. As they have shown meekness, so have they 
displayed strength. As they have sown, so shall they reap — and bounteous be 
the harvest. Selah !

The Athletic Field 




KEVIOUS to the campaign for the present field, an attempt was 
made to construct a field south of the Veterinary Laboratory on 
land now owned by the Q. T. V. fraternity. In September, 1911, 
plans and blue prints were ready for a field on that location. 
President Butterfleld asked that these plans be looked over; his 

reipiest wa.s complied with, and after due consideration were pronounced in- 

iide:pnite. There the matter dropped. 

In Ihc fall of 1012, Prof. Hicks asked permission from the President to 
visit several of the state institutions for the jjurpose of examining their ath- 
letic fields. Consent was given, with the result that twenty three of the state 
colleges and universities as far west as Kansas and Nebraska were visited, 
and their athletic fields and gynmasinnis carclnlly inspected. These investiga- 
tions were the beginning of plans for llie new Held. 

The next step was to formulate a definite plan of action, for although a 
field had long been talked of, there was no absolute statement as to how and 
by wliom the field should be built. The body then controlling athletics was 
known as the athletic board, but had no recognition from the trustees by which 
it might do business. At the meeting of the trustees in June, 1913, there was 
presented a jtlan for the control of athletics, and for the construction of a 
field, under what would be known as a Joint Committee on Inter-Collegiate 
Athletics, this committee to derive its powers from the trustees. The trustees 
voted to accejit the plan and the flist meeting of the connnittee was held in 
September, 1!)1."!. A subcommittee was aiijjointed with jiower to raise funds 
for the field and to construct the same. At a meeting of the trustees in June, 
1913, the section of land now graded for an athletic field was set aside for that 
purjtose. 

The plan was presented to the students on December 3, 1913, at which 
time .f2,5()() was pledged. Actual construction of the field was begun with stu- 
dent labor on April 10, 1914. All drains were laid and everything ready for 
the contractor by June 8, 1914. G. S. Dickinson of Amherst was the contractor. 
The plans embody the best arrangemeut for the land, and are a combination 
of the best features of the fields examined by Prof. Hicks. The class of 1903 
has undertaken to build the gate, ujion which work will be started in the 
spring. When completed this |12.lll)(l investment will prove an invaluable 
asset to athletics at this colleae.

The Football Season 

The 1!)14 football seasou opened with several difliculties for Coach Brides 
to overcome. There were five veterans of the strong 1913 team remaining, the 
1914 schedule was the hardest an Aggie team ever faced, the new rule prohibit- 
ing freshmen from playing on the Varsity had gone into effect, and there was 
a woeful lack of good substitute material in the upper classes. 

At the time of writing, four games have been played and it cannot be 
truthfully said that the season thus far has been a success. As the chief cause 
for this fact, the lack of football men now in college can be given. Football 
men of ability are not matriculating here, for reasons not to be set forth in 
this review. The team has woi-ked hard and faithfully, but has not yet shown 
the power that it is capable of. The two biggest games are still remaining, 
and there is a fighting chance for the team to come through and make the 
season successful. The student body is standing loyally behind the team, aud 
is a big factor in driving the team to do its best. The management is to be 
highly commended and has worked hard to help the team. There is not another 
C!oach in the country that could have done as much for the teams here as Coach 
Brides has done in the last three years, and no mistake will be made in secur- 
ing him for the 191.5 team.

The Hockey Season 



Looking back on the past winter's hockey season, a few words may be 
deservedly said concerning the result of Aggie's team nnder Captain "Det" 
Jones. Our season record shows six victories and two defeats. With "Det" as 
our leader and with ex-captain Jack Hutchinson back in his old place, our 
aggregation soon rounded into shape so that our first game with Williams very 
handily came our way, 8-1. 

Our next game came at the end of the Christmas vacation, the team going 
to West Point and taking the cadets into camp by a 5-0 score. 

The next two games, while they were our only defeats, can not be looked 
upon as such from a purely hockey standj^oint either at Hanover or in the 
Boston Arena. We showed that our team was fully as strong as either Dart- 
mouth or Harvard to which we went down to defeat 2-1, and 5-4 respectively; 
the latter game being a ten minute overtime one. 

The rest of the schedule came our -way very easily. Holy Cross being the 
first victims. 13-0, followed by the Springfield Y. M. C. A. college 2-0 and 5-0, 
and Amherst in the last game of the year by a 4-0 score. 

By graduation this year we lose undoubtedly the two most valuable men 
on last year's team ; but on looking over the prospects there seems to be no 
reason why Aggie should not hold her place among the leading college hockey 
teams of the country. 

Manager Draper is arranging an excellent schedule, Harvard, Yale, Prince- 
ton, Dartmouth and Cornell already being booked. With the backing of the 
student body and a good enthusiastic spirit instilled into the entire team, one 
may look to another big year of hockey at M. A. C.

The Track Season 

For the season of 1913-1914 the relay team had three races scheduled, win- 
ning but one of these. On the surface this would look like an unsuccessful 
season, but considering the fact that the team was composed of men who were 
decidedly green at the sport, the results were not so surprising. Two members 
of the team were first year men, and only one of the remaining two had repre- 
sented M. A. C. before. 

At the coast Artillery Corps meet, the team lost to Tufts, and in the tri- 
angular meet with Worcester Tech and Boston College, at the B. A. A. games 
held at Boston, we had to be contended with third place. Kh((de Island, how- 
ever, fell an easy victim at the annual indoor meet of the Armory Athletic 
Association held in I'rovideuce. Coach Dickinson deserves great credit for his 
hard and consistent work with the new material. 

In the outdoor spring work, the team was too severely handicapped by the 
lack of proper facilities to make much of a showing. As it was we kept Am- 
herst hustling in the annual meet, and with the majority of the old material on 
hand and much promising color in the new class, the meet this year may take 
on a different aspect. The same applies to the N. E. I. A. A. meet, although no 
I)oints were scored last year, the showing of the men was promising, thanks to 
the unlimited service of Pratt P^ield offered to our men, and to the good hearted 
coaching of Prof. Neligan.

Cross Country Season 

The cross countrj' season for l!)l:! was moderateh' successful. Tlie team 
met witli one defeat and one victory, and placed sixth in the Intercollegiates 
at Dartmouth. The team won a victory over the well balanced Amherst team, 
but later lost to the team from Brown. This defeat was partly due to bad 
weather, and partly because the team was hindered by the lack of spiked shoes. 
This year saw M. A. C. represented for the first time in the New England 
Intercollegiates. The Intercollegiate cross covmtry run was held over the ideal 
course at Dartmouth. The well balanced Maine team nosed out the fast Dart- 
mouth team. M. A. C. finished sixth, winning over Amherst and Williams. 
This showing was all that could be expected, and the prospects for a good team 
next year are bright, because only one man will be lost by graduation. Too 
much credit can not be given Coach Whittier for his untiring work in coach- 
ing the team, and giving timelv advice.

The Baseball Season 



The spring of the next year will no doubt, be a deciding factor in the fu- 
ture baseball schedules of M. A. C. Due to more thau mediocre teams iu the 
past few years, Aggie has established for herself a name among the higher in- 
stitutions of learning. Now no longer must we fear iu picking our games as we 
have proven ourselves capable of giving the larger college teams more than 
practice games. 

However, we cannot afford to lie back and rest on our laurels of years 
past, but must rather give added incentive to the thought that next year will 
see a team that can put Aggie on a higher plane thau ever before. The com- 
ing year must necessarily be a sort of a climax where a winning team will 
add much to the pi'estige of M. A. C. and make her a powerful factor in inter- 
collegiate baseball. 

In the year gone by, we find the baseball aggregation made up largely of 
veterans of the year before who showed good results under the coaching of 
"Billj" Fitzmaurice. Of that winning combination, however, five men have been 
lost, two of them pitchers who for four years have been the mainstays in the 
box, besides being reliable battei-s. So an almost entirely new team must be 
formed which means more earnest efforts in the early Spring training. With- 
out doubt our facilities for indoor work are poor, yet this should ouly prove 
an incentive to greater efforts on our part. From the result of the 1914 sea- 
son, one cannot help but conclude that there must be developed a team that has 
the punch to last from the very start until the last game of the season is over.

Rifle Team Review 



Since a rifle team was established at M. A. C. in 1909, almost phenomenal 
success has attended it. Dni-ing the five seasons past, the team has won the 
United States intercollegiate indoor championship three times and the outdoor 
championship four times. Last year with a season's average of 968.7 and 
record breaking scores of 978 and 980, the team finished in second place, losing 
their only match to Michigan Aggie, who established phenomenal scores in 
intercollegiate indoor shooting. The outdoor rifle team last spring established 
a new record by scoring 827 out of a possible 900, and finishing in first place. 
This was accomplished despite the fact that the team had no coach and shot 
imder somewhat unfavorable rules. The following men comprised the outdoor 
team : E. W. Dunbar '14, J. H. Oertel '14, E. P. Hotis '15, M. C. Lane '15, G. F. 
Hyde '15, E. M. LTpton '15. M. 0. Lane '15 was elected ca])tain for this year. 

Prospects for a successful indoor team are very bright for this year, seven 
of last year's team being left in college. However, there are places for the new 
men, and anyone who has any ability in that line should follow it up, as men 
must be developed to take the places of those who graduate with 1915. 

The success of the team depends to a large extent vipon the student body. 
Their financial support means better equipment and good coaching, both being 
very important factors in the season's shooting. The name of M. A. C. has 
been brought before the public many times because of the victories of her rifle 
team, and such a team deserves the continued support which has been given it 
in the past. The athletic association has granted an rMt to those men who 
make up the outdoor team, or who shot among the first five in 50 per cent of 
the indoor matches and whose average is 188 or better. The student body has 
not failed in their support in the past, and it is hoped that this year will prove 
no exception.

The Glee Club 



Previous to the season 1912-'lo, music at M. A. C. was in a deplorable state 
and it became apparent tliat unless an adequate and efficient coach could be 
secured the idea of having- a glee and mandolin club would have to be given up. 
Through the efforts of several ineiiiliers of the (irganizalion the services were 
secured of Mr. John Bland, choirmaster of Calvarv Episcopal Church, New 
York City. 

With the advent of Mr. Bland into musical circles at the college, flagging 
interest revived and, before the end of the year, a club materialized of which 
the college could be justly proud. Last year Mr. Bland again had charge of 
the singing and in spite of various set-backs the spring season witnessed an or- 
ganization of an even higher standard than formerly, and the annual incursion 
into New York and New Yersey proved highly successful. 

The coming year gives promise of indeed wonderful results both from the 
financial and musical standpoint. Some sixty men have shown keen desire to 
push the organization and set it upon a higher plane than ever before. An 
elaborate schedule of performances is being arranged for, including an api>ear- 
ance at Carnegie Hall, New York, in conjunction with the clubs of Harvard, 
Columbia, University of Pennsylvania and Dartmouth. This will be in the 
form of a competitive sing, participation in which will mean a great advertis- 
ing feature for the college. The management predicts several vaudeville 
engagements, which, while undertaken mainly from a financial viewpoint, will 
doubtless prove a considerable attraction for the men engaged.

Orchestra 



Although the majority of the orchestra was graduated with lOl-l, yet there 
is no ground for discouragement. With but one exception the places left 
vacant by Hutchinson, Porter, Howard, Bragg, Nicolet, Jenny, Tarbell and 
Hogg have been well filled. There is still need of a clarinet, and a bass, and a 
successful year is looked forward to. 

The plan this year is to work on, not only the popular pieces whicli always 
find favor, but on selections from the new comic operas, and also some grand 
opera pieces and overtures. 

As a part of the Roister Bolsters on their trips, and likewise the musical 
clubs, the orchestra .will figure quite prominently by furnishing music for danc- 
ing whicli follows the entertainment in each case. The orchestra also furnishes 
music for social functions on the campus. 

The orchestra has always been supported by its members, but it seems 
that this branch of the musical clubs, so often called upon by the faculty and 
students should receive some support either from the college or the students.

The Roister Bolsters 

The policy of the Roister Doisteis has been greatly changed this year. 
The reorganization has been snch that the society will be able to broaden out. 
and/f-rom now on dramatics will be rnn on a strictly bnsiness basis. 

In order to do this it has been necessary to depart from the set ways of 
most ^college dramatic societies. We are able to do this throngh the hearty co- 
operation of several of the better known New York ])rodncevs, and from now 
on the society will produce plays that have been late Broadway successes. It 
is also hoped that several original plays that are now being written by the 
members of the society will also be produced in the near future. In staging 
these plays, all the electrical effects, costuming and so on, will lie the work and 
ideas of members of the society. The pi'oduction of plays is entirely in tlie 
hands of the manager and^ his assistants, and no professional coaches are 
emploj'ed. 

One phase of the rural jiroblem to-day is to enable the rural people to 
provide their own amusement, and to make it compare favorably with urban 
attractions. It is the aim of this society to train the undergraduates of -this 
college to handle this situation. It is also hoped that at some time the society 
may be able tt) imju'ove rural drama in its broadest sense, and start a new 
school which will place it on as high a scale as any other division of the drama.' 
When this is accomplished the reputation of the Koister Doisters is made.

Oratory and Debate 



While oratory and debate are activities uot strongly patronized by tlie 
students, they still hold an important place in the college functions. During 
the past two years the Public Speaking Council has been working hard to raise 
Aggie's reputation along these lines. Last season debates were arranged with 
Khode Island State and Clark College. A unanimous decision in the first in- 
stance was quite gratifying, and the fact that the Clark debate went against 
the team by a two to one vote was in no wise a discouragement. 

Enthusiasm among the students is the greatest help this branch of activi- 
ties could have. The rewards for the Varsity team, consisting of gold medals 
and money, the same for the Burnham Declamation and the Flint Oratory con- 
tests are well worth the energy expended. While the work of the Council is the 
leading item in this eil'ort to put M. A. C. where she belongs in debate, it counts 
for little if not supported by the students, and hence the real responsibility for 
the success of the debating teams lies with the student body.

The Stockbridge Club, which for several years has been the agricultural 
club of the college, has been reorganized on broader lines. It was felt that as 
the college has grown, and as the interest in various branches of scientific agri- 
culture has increased, that these ought in some way to be separated so that men 
interested in some particular line of work could meet and discuss questions of 
common interest. It was decided to section the club rather than to split it into 
several small independent clubs, and at present four sectidus aie i)lanned, in- 
cluding Animal Husbandry, Pomology, Poultry and Gardening; the first three 
sections are now fully organized. Each section elects its own officers, but mem- 
bership is in the central club, and officers are elected in this club to have charge 
of the common interests and plans of all the sections. The executive committee 
consists of these officers together with the section chairmen and one faculty 
member.

This year the stock judging team cousistiug of \Yhitmore, "15, Moberg, '15, 
and Harvey, '15, captured first place at the Brockton fair in competition with 
teams from all the Agricultural Colleges of New England. This is the first 
time in recent years that the team has finished on top in any of the larger 
fairs. The M. A. C. team finished fully 300 points ahead of the Rhode Island 
team which was second. 

At the Dairymens' Show in Chicago last October the team won second 
on Guernseys, third on Ayshires, and finished seventh in the contest beating 
out Delaware, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Cornell, Maryland, Pennsylvania, 
South Dakota, Oregon and Arkansas.

The Landscape Art Club was organized in tlie fall of 1900 as The Junior 
Landscape Club. The purpose was to provide the men interested in landscape 
with the opportunity of hearing men who had done things in this and kindred 
lines. The following year the club became the Landscape Art Club, with social 
as well as technical aims. During these years many interesting lectures have 
been given by men of national reputation. 

The plans this year include a broadening of the social side of the club. 
Meetings will be held fortnightly, at which prominent men will address the 
club. Monthly "get togethers" will be held in the form of hikes, camp fire 
talks and so forth. Active membership is limited to upper classmen, but all 
men at all interested are urged to attend.

Resume of Christian Association 



|0T only one of the most worthy, but cue of the most thriving or- 

I ganizations at M. A. C, is its Christian Association. On October 

ft/jSV^ > 17, 1914. it had a paid membership of sixty-five men, and has added 

a great many since that date. It is doing a splendid work in the 

college, standing for clean college life, and the development of strong Christian 

leadei'ship. 

This year the Association has organized under the cabinet system, and its 
committees are hard at work. Boys' clubs are being conducted, foreigners are 
being taught English, service to the student body is being rendered, and deputa- 
tion teams are being sent out. With a new office in the old Trophy Boom in 
sight, the campus service branch of the work is about to take on a new lease of 
life. Here an employment bureau and information office are to be conducted. 
These are but a few of the activities of the organization. It has grown this 
year, and promises to grow more. It is boimd to advertise M. A. C. widely by 
its prominence in Y. M. C. A. circles. It is bound to help M. A. C. produce 
clean men, big men, leaders in city and rural life. Such is the object, and such 
it prays to accomplish. 





Country Life Club 



The Country Life Club 

The Collegiate Country Life Club of America is a national organization, 
founded by the alumni students of the colleges of the United States and 
Canada, in February, 1013. 

President Butterfleld is the president of the national organization ; such 
being the case it was thought quite fitting that a chapter of this club should be 
established at M. A. C. The local club was founded in April, 1914, by several of 
the students interested in the rural question. The aim of the entire organiza- 
tion is to promote the development of agriculture in its three distinctive 
aspects, namely as an industry, as a business, and as a mode of living. This 
club deserves the hearty support of all men interested in rural problems, for 
their work in the club will be of real value to them.

The M. A. C. Press Club was formed to assist in obtaining greater publicity 
for the college. It is composed of students who report for the daily newspapers 
or other periodicals and those who have a desire to enter the journalistic field. 
The club accomjtlishes its purpose by sending out accurate and timely news, 
not only in athletics but in the other lines of work for which the college is well 
known. It maintains a bulletin board which is used as a clearing house for 
all news to which every member has access, thus preventing scoops or varia- 
tions in the news. 

The club was formerly organized on September 16, 1!)14, with a member- 
ship of ten men. The Press club is unique iu that its members are working for 
the good of the college, they are helping each other, and at the same time are 
being paid for their labors.

Tlie M. A. C. Catholic Clnb was organized in 1911 by members of the 
senior class who felt the need of such an organization among the students. 
The primary reasons for its formation were that the Catholic men at college 
might become better acquainted with each other ; that they might take greater 
consideration of their spiritual welfare, and to foster the good will existing be- 
tween its members and those of other religious beliefs. Two meetings a month 
are held at which prominent laymen deliver short talks on topics of general in- 
terest or upon those more closely related to the Church and her history. The 
purpose for which the club was founded haA^e been realized, and to-day every 
Catholic student recognizes the value of the club, and feels certain of a useful 
future for it among the many organizations at M. A. C.

191G has started out to make her Prom, like all the rest of her class affairs, 
a complete success. The committee has been well organized, and meets regu- 
larly. Work has been started so that the twelfth hour rush in details and 
decoration may be avoided. 

Prom season, an open season for young ladies, generally lasting from Fri- 
day till Sunday, includes a hockey game, Glee Club concert, the Promenade, an 
informal tea, and a sleigh ride, weather permitting. 

The Promenade will be held Friday evening, February 12, 1915. The 
hockey game is played on the pond Friday afternoon. Usually a Glee Club con- 
cert in the cha^iel follows. The Prom furnishes the evening's entertainment. 
Saturday afternoon an informal tea is in order. The annual Prom show is 
given by the Bolster Doisters in the evening. Sunday is a varied ])rogram de- 
pending on the bent of the individual. Every Prom, of the past has met with 
favor, it is the aim of the committee to make this year's equally plesisant.

Index Boakd 



The Index 

The function of a college annual is two fold; first to give the men of the 
college a first class resume of the previous .year, and second to advertise the 
college, in an indirect manner. To satisfy the class publishing the hook, and 
to favorably impress the disinterested reader, is the task of the editors. 

A college annual should be a subject of real interest to the entire college, 
and should not be considered as an inherent task of the class whose duty it is 
to publish it, to be commended if successful, or condemned if faulty. The col- 
lege year book reaches the entire college force, students and faculty ; the book 
becomes a subject of college pride, and to be entirely successful must receive 
enthusiastic support fi'om all concerned. Such an attitude if manifested at 
M. A. C, giving the editors confidence and a worthy aim to work for, will pro- 
duce better Indexes for Aggie in years to come.

1916 



By T. P. Wilcox 

The augel of Beelzebub, we are told in lore, 
Revolted 'gainst the Great One's terrific might. 
They struggled fiercely in that awful fight, 
Till o'ercome at last they fall from Heaven's door. 
They struggled in vain their heights to regain. 
But clutching space they quickly downward fell, 
Disgraced by Heaven, to live in fearful Hell, 
An abode of horror; to live in Satan's reign, 
A place of pain, remorse, regrets unsatisfied, 
To such a place man is tempted by Satan's lure. 
Mere gold, in loss of which man cannot abide 
In peace ; it is the burden of the poor. 
Alas, alas, but for that upper strife. 
Each one would lead a peaceful, happy life. 



A i>flnnpt to M^ ICnw 

By William E. Rvan 

Sweet Mary, when I ponder o'er my books 
That I may get some recompense from toil, 
And learn just how to plant my father's soil; 
I think of you quite often, and your looks. 
Your picture 'dorns my bureau here at Cook's, 
And if by chance this room meets with turmoil 
I grasp your image, so it may not spoil, 
And hide it from the prowling hands of crooks. 
Of all the women in plain or swell attire, 
You are the only one I can admire. 
You are my life in every way, I know, 
I realize this the older that I grow, 
But since we cannot join till studies o'er 
We'll continue correspondence as before.

The following is an accurate and antlientie description of how English 
literature is expounded to the students of modern high schools and colleges. 
The accompanying poem from the Houston I'ost answers the purpose: 



The other night 
Two festive gents 

12) 

Got out their shoot 

Implements, 
And when thej had 

13) 

Exchanged a few 

(4) 

Left a plate glass 

Shot through and thr'ough: 
And now the people 

Congregate 

(5) 

Before that glass, 

And crowd and wait 
While the hot pave- 

(6) . 

^Ien1 burns their soles 
To gaze upon 

7) 

Those bullet holes; 
Look at those holes 

(s) 

For hours ! Gee whiz ! 
How queer this liuuuui 
Nature is.

(1) Notice that the author uses the terms "gents." This is a strong 
indication that the author was a bachelor, who has his trousers pressed at a 
"Gents' Tailoring" establishment, eats his meals at a "Gents' Cafe," and wears 
"Gents' Furnishings." 

(2) "Shoot," — this is the archaic form of expression, the al)seuce of the 
"ing" emphasizes the imaginary' trend of the poem. 

(3 Eead this line again and carefully note the ambiguous nature. Some 
critics argue that this means that they exchanged a few shots, and that the 
author purposely omitted the word "shots" to play upon the unsuspecting 
imagination of the reader. But Dr. Isaac Beelzebub Eabinovitz, of the 
Hibernian School of Oratory scouts this interpretation, for he calls attention 
to the fact that the men were "festive gents," and the idea of fire arms is out 
of the question. The fact that they were "festive gents" indicates that they 
were playing pool and the "shoot implements" were simply the cues itsed to 
shoot the balls around the table. 

(4; ) Here again is the element of suspense so characteristic of the author, 
who in all probability was kept in a similar state by the use of treacherous 
suspenders. It is left to the reader to determine whether a "glass plate" or a 
"plate glass" window is meant. 

(5) "Before" meaning in front of. Of. Tennyson's "Idylls of The King," 
line 2S0766S. 

(6j Note the soulful nature of this passage. Theologians declare the 
author is greatly in error to insinuate that mens' souls are in their feet. T. 
Mientka asserts positively that the author's interpretation is correct, for he 
states that the shoes were sadly in need of repair when brought to him. The 
student should thoroughly understand the meaning of this passage, one of the 
most brilliant ever written at "white heat." 

(7) "Bullet holes," — This puts out the Israelite and his interpretation. 
This and the next line indicate that it was wholly a holey proposition, perhai;s 
more holy than righteous. 

(8) Should this be "for" or four hours? "For hours" indicates an in- 
liiiitiy long time. Four liours is ]ilen1y long enough for those whose soles are 
on fire.

The Eradication of Dandelions, and 
Lawn Fertilization. 

C. Wellington. 

Apparatus: — HXO3; NajCOj; medi- 
cine dropper; lawn infested with dan 
delions. 

Procedure: — In the field infested 
with a rampant growth of the weed, I 
had my assistant go over the field and 
saturate each of the plants with a solu- 
tion of HNOg, applying the acid 
with an especially constructed medicine 
dropper. Care was taken not to con- 
taminate the surrounding grass with 
the acid. The effect on the taxacara 
was nitrifying. However, the acid 
could not be kept away from the real grass, so 1 calculated the amount of 
ISfasGOg necessary to neutralize the HNO3, and again sent my lab. assistant 
around to correct the acidity with some of the carbonate and the Adamkiewicz 
medicine dropper. The following reaction took jjlace: — 

2HN03+Na2C03= 2NaN03+H2 COs. 
The formation of the NaNOg was of great fertilizing value, while the carbonic 
acid was of great use in the oxidation of insoluble matter to the soluble 
condition. 

Results : — 

The dandelions are still growing and tlie grass is dead.

THE FRIDAY WAR CRY 



Vol. 1. 



Friday, October 23, 1914. 



Number 1. 



At present a Democratic campaign 
is raging worse tlian the European 
war; we all are acquainted with the 
Democratic Mayor who seems to have 
an excellent chance to win out on one 
of the two tickets he is on — ^probably 
the meal ticket. The Lewis Club has 
been formed and the oiBcers will do 
all in their power to get him elected, 
both to get in right with the Dean's 
Office and to help out (?) a man who 
has always done his utmost for the 
Democrats. 

LEWIS CLUB SONG. 

To be sung to the tune of "tramp, tramp, 

tramp." 

Vote, vote, vote for Teddy Le\vis, 
He is looking for a pull. 
Prexy says he's the man 
And he'll do the best he can. 
For he's got an everlasting line of 
bull. 

"Supph' the missing word and win Rexall 
watch.) 

To Professor X. Y. Z— 

"If you want your students to 'hurry up' 

Don't crab 'em like an old sick pup, 

Don't work 'em so hard that they won't 

get by. 
Or you'll go straight to when you die." 

Grover Cleveland, chief of the flre 
department, when interviewed by one 
of the War Cry's reporters explained, 
"The fire losses this year will be con- 
siderably less than in past years — the 
Chem. Building will Inirn downi only 
over my dead body." Some Pddy. 

The probable selection of the play 
for the Dramatic Society will be 
either "Damaged Goods," "The Curse 
of Drink," or else "The Trail of the 
Lonesome Crockroach (to be staged 
at the Hash-hou.se). 

Once more we heard the merry 
laughter of the girls with the ming- 
ling of the light fanta.stic toe to the 



jubilant notes of music, Saturday in 
yonder barn. Remember in the future 
no tripping, slugging or clinching 
allowed, even if you are dancing the 
modern stutf. This means vou Sears.

"The largest Circulation in New

I wonder what M. A. C. will be 

A hundred years from now. 
I wonder if co-eds will run Old Aggie 

A hundred years from now. 
The boys are setting a pace today 
That's turning Prexy's hair gray, 
Thev're asking for beer to go with hash- 
house rations. 
I wonder if girls will play foot-ball 

A hundred years from now, 
I wonder if they'll fuss in Draper Hall 

A hundred years from now. 
Will they shock Carrie Nation, 
Cause consternation 

I wonder, and wonder, I wonder how much 
We'll beat both Harvard and Yale 

A hundred \ears from now.

OuRRAN — "The chai'acters are man and woman who died some years ago." 

Sanderson — ^"Browning, as I understand it, is showing to the artist a pic- 
ture of his last duchess — (Who ever she is). He tells him that the picture is 
shown only to a few people. He tells also the character of the woman." 

Jordan — "There was a beautiful duchess ^\•ho lived iu a palace — ." 

Darling — "This work developed from a beautiful painting of a pretty 
young woman. The story is an interesting one with a clever plot running 
through it that keeps up the interest of the reader." 

Murphy — "My impression was that the poem is a picture of beautiful home 
life of a pretty lady receiving company. The receiving is described accurately, 
especially a picture that hung on the wall." 

Nash — "The 'Last Duchess' expresses to my mind a beautiful picture of a 
lady in the act of receiving peoples' favors. This is really a monologue and 
might be fitted for the stage. The poem tells but little directly, but is very 
suggestive."

At this debut of celebrated artists, the management wishes to extend its 
sincerest thanks to those who have so kindly lent their aid that this production, 
our life-long dream, might be realized. Among our many friends are Professor 
Hillary of this college and Smith who has lent his experience in coaching the 
various acts, B. F. Keith of Boston and New York wdio loaned us two of his 
headline acts for our initial bill, and the United States government for the use 
of this grand old theatre that has catered to all classes. 

All gowns are designed by Zimmerman of Paris and executed l)y Lord and 
Taylor. Shoes are furnished by Holies and wigs by "Doc" Peters. 

As is customary, we request that any civility on the part of our elieap help 
be reported at the Box Office. That is one thing that this theatre will not 
stand for. 

Should the theatre become too hot, open the window and see the fire 
escape. 

If the lights go out, those persons occupying the five last rows are re- 
quested to step into the lobby for a moment in order to make the theatre 
lighter. 

If you require the services of an attendant, ( wiring your hands. 

Owing to the thoughtfulness of the Market Gardening Department, those 
patrons who would otherwise throw something harder may obtain cabbages at 
the office. 

Address all orders and make all checks payable to the Treasurer, Social 
Union Players, Amherst, Mass.

Old iS'oali built himself au ark 

Like a good religions soul ; 
He put his family on the deck, 

The animals in the hold. 
And as he pushed off from the shore 

With all his kith and kin, 
The people gathered on the bank 

And merrily sang to him — 

CHOEUS 

Go to (see footnote) then, 

Go to (see footnote) then, 

Go to (see footnote) riglit now in your darned old scow. 

For it ain't goin' to rain anyhow, anyhow, 

It ain't goin' to rain anyhow. 

Then Noah fell upon his knees 

And prayed that they might drown ; 
That God in his almighty wrath 

Would flood the whole darn town. 
The animals set ujj a roar 

That almost raised his hair, 
But still came wafted on the breeze 

That same ungodly air : 

CHORUS 

For forty days and forty nights 

The rain came dowai like (see footnote) ; 
It covered everything in sight 

Including hill and dell. 
As Noah, sitting in the ark. 

Glanced through the window pane. 
He said, "Where are those poor darned fools 

Who said it wouldn't rain?"'

"I was once just an apple tree, 

And grew and grew as tlie Lord made me, 
But the professors do-ma at M. A. C. 

Knew better how things ought to be ; 
So they cut off my limbs and branches too, 

And scraped my bark ; and I tell you 
I look as much like an apple tree 

As a monkey does like a bumble bee. 
I'm ashamed to stand where folks can see 

WTiat the professors did from M. A. C. 
What's good for a tree ought to be good for man. 

And I'd like to ti'y the professor's plan. 
I'd like to take professor Sears, 

And trim him up in spite of his tears, 
I'd cut off his ears and shorten his nose, 

I'd shave his head and trim his toes. 
And I'd set him up for the boys to see 

Just Vhat a professor ought to be."

I stood upon Mt. Sinai, and watched the sun, in its oriental splendor, 
descending over a sublime and chaotic waste of ash heaps and battered 
garbage cans. I stood alone, wrapped in pensive meditation. Prom a fissure in 
the rocks there stepped forth a hoary hermit, with a finely polished alabaster 
dome. 

"Listen to me," said the hermit, as he placed his lunch-hook on my bean, 
"whosoe'er may find favor in the eyes of the Lord, and be delivered from these 
abominations which I shall enumerate here to you, will thrive and prosper 
all the days of his life. This should be your litany," quoth the old Assyrian 
codger ; whereupon he stretched out to me the following taffy : 

"Prom Leftj' Louie, welded sinkers, and military drill ; from rust-proof 
biscuits and those reverend and biblical gentlemen thrust upon us at Assembly ; 
from professors' jokes and sophomore English ; from dissecting putrid squids 
and kindred metazoa ; from toothache, grammatical quibblers, and beef hash ; 
from "men" who neither smoke, swear, drink, nor chew; from all females ex- 
cept those between seventeen and twenty-four years; from work in any shape, 
form or manner — good Lord, deliver us."

Actoiiipaiiied by t^ophomore Compau- 
10118, the fi-osli strolled nervously about 
tlie Caiii])us after Prayers. It was a 
beautiful Day. But the Company of 
their Companions was distasteful to many 
of the frosh, and, apparently in .some 
Haste, they rode away in Motor Cars 
without saying Goodbye. This was not 
ill the best of Taste, it seemed to the 
Sophdinoi-es, so they followed to demand 
an Apology, but lost the Trail. A Walk- 
den, on rising Ground known as Sugar- 
loaf, discerned the fleeing Cars moving 
toward Montague, a licensed To^\m. The 
Sophomores immediately followed, but 
without Success. 

The next Day, a Saturday, found the 
Sophomores moving toward Hadley as 
till High drawn by an unseen Hand. No 
<'loii(l marred the homogeniety of the 
lilue. Tlie good Looks of the Invaders 
took the native Maidens by Storm, and

those with Motors 

placed them in the 

Service of the 

Cause. A Eicker 

carried Eations on 

the Indian, and 

Sir Wentworth 

tooli to selling 

Magazines. As the 

Day declined, one 

from the House of 

Taber espied a 

frosli peering over 

the Casement of a 

Cook Car. He 

smote his Thigh, and the martial Cry, "Paramecium," sti'uck the Sk 

tainers swarmed to his Support, and able Yoemen of large Growth 

the Stronghold and extracted four Officers of the frosh. These were 

away. 

At a late Hour, another of the frosh came to the Eendezvous, and was put 
on File for future Eeference. It was a Queen of a Night. The Planet Orion 
slowly climbed into the Equinox, and Zenith blazed dully near the Chair. 
From Time to Time a Rooster reassured his trusting Herd with shrill Cries. 
The Sabbath was but an Hour old when a Whistle sounded up the Tracks, 
and another frosh. after some Eesistance, was put in Irons ancl delivered to 
the Pound. 

Once in a While a Breeze fanned the heated Watchers. Time wore on. as 
is its Habit in these Latitudes. Back at the Castle, Sir Little was incinerating 
the midnight Juice, and the automatic Chariot of Sir Wally Dodge was 
feverishly devouring the Gas along the Highways. The morning Star moved 
up a couple of Pegs and came to a Halt. A sharp Crack sounded up the 
Tracks, and a large Crowd emerged from among the Eolling Stock. A burly 
frosh, after being disarmed of an evil Mace, was given a Set of Eopes to wear 
and was placed in the Loft with the Best of the Squabs. 

It was many 
Hours later that 
a pretty Train, 
drawn by an En- 
gine with a shiny 
Bell, and bearing 
the main Body of 
the frosh, came to 
a Stop near the 
Cook Car. A hand- 
some frosh with 
elastic Step strode 
to the Car and 
beat upon the 
Gate. No answer.

Someone tried to roll One, 
but the Makings rattled 
out. and lay in a little 
Heap upon a Tie. The 
Captives in the Loft, which 
was near By, set up a 
plaintive Wail, but Hand- 
kerchiefs of the best Irish 
Linen stopped the pitiful 
Sounds, and the Train, 
drawn by the Engine with 
the sliiny Bell, proceeded 
along the Bails towards 
Hartford.

HADLEY. 



M. A. C. STUDENTS WET DOWN 



Fire Department Called Out to Cool Off 
the Ardor of Sophomores and Fresh- 
men. 

The Massachusetts agricultural col- 
lege freshmen and sophomores had an 
encounter on West street in Hadley Mon- 
day evening, which is said to have been 
an exciting affair until the ardor of the 
combatants was cooled by a deluge 
turned on from a convenient hydrant by 
the Hadley fire department. So far as 
known, the only severe wound of battle 
was a broken bone in the hand of one of 
the warriors. The affair is said to have 
resulted from the capture of several of 
the officers of the freshman class, who 
were taken Saturday and held in hand- 
cuffs and other bonds in barns in Hadley 
Center and North Hadley until it was too 
late for them to attend the banquet of 
the freshman class in Hartford Monday 
afternoon. The freshmen returned in 
force from the banquet Monday evening, 
and a collision between the freshmen and 
sophomores, about 30 on a side, occurred 
on West street about 9;30, which looked 
so much like real war that the citizens 
were alarmed, until they bethought them- 
selves of the expedient of wetting down 
the battle. The scheme worked to a 
charm, and the bedraggled students im- 
mediately took themselves off.

EmxB, iliiul Q^mvB 



This is a tale of the banquet 
The Freshman class( ?) had decreed. 
(A wonderful, wondrous banquet, 
A sumptuous elegant feed ) . 
They up and made a committee — 
Lawrence, Birchard, and Smith — 
They did their best and finest 
But the banquet proved a myth. 

The ossifei-s went in a frei,<iht I'ar — 
Bnckman, Patton, i\Iai;uire — 
But a fight was just then started 
That roused the Sophomores' ire. 
It resulted in sundry captures; 
And Seventeen lost their men. 
So, when they got down to Hartford, 
They wanted them back again. 

They started back to Hadley — 

Keegan, Sauter, and IJoss — 

With seventeen other huskies 

To try to redeem their loss. 

They found the officers' quarters, 

They broke the stout barn door; 

They were bruised and kicked and pounded. 

But still came back for more. 

But the Hadley Fire I)ei)artment 

Was strictly on the job ; 

They brought their only fire hose 

And cleaned out the fighting mob. 

Soaked and drenched, they spluttered 

And pounded the empty air. 

And found, when the scrap was over 

The officers still were there. 

This is a tale of the bancjuet 
The Freshman class had decreed. 
(A wonderful, wondrous banquet, 
A sumptuous, elegant feed. ) 
But, Seventeen, we beat you 
And you proved a most worthy foe. 
And the only thing we regret is 
That we'll not have another go.

as rendered by 
T. Palmer Wilcox 

When a fellow's in love with a pretty, pretty girl, 

He talks to her gently, like a dove; 
He calls her his honey, and he spends all his money 

To make believe he's solid in his love. 
When his money's all gone, and his clothes are in the pawn, 

He'll find the old saying is trne. 
That a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. 

So what are yon going to do? 

CHORUS 

So boys keep away from the girls, I say. 

Oh, give them lots of room. 
For when you're abed, they'll bang you in the head 

With the bald-headed end of the broom. 

When married folks have lots of cash, 

The love is solid and strong, 
But when you have to live on hash. 

The love don't last so long. 
With a wife and seventeen half starved kids 

I'll tell you it is no fun, 
When the butcher comes around to collect his bills 

With a dog and a double barreled gun. 
So now, young man take my advice. 

Don't be in a hurry to wed, 
You'll think you're in clover, till the honeymoon is over, 

And then you'll wish you were dead. 
With a crossed eyed youngster on each knee, 

And a wife with a plaster on her nose, 
You'll find true love don't run so smooth 

When you have to wear second hand clothes.

When I meet the bunco men, I allays get the best of them, 

Met two t' other day on the Boston train. 
They says "How d'y dew," I says, "That '11 dew. 

Travel right along with yer durn skin game." 

I drove the old bay daown taown the other day, 

Hitched him up to the railroad fence, 
I tied him good and strong, but the train came along, 

H'ain't see the horse nor kerridge since. 

I drove the gi'ay mare over to the county fair 
Took fust prize on a load er summer squash. 

Dropped into the cider mill, coming over by the hill 
Come home tighter than drum. By gosh ! 

I got so durn full, fergot to tie the bull. 

Let the reins fall right on the thill. 
Get home so durn late, couldn't find the barn gate. 

Ma says "Joshua, is it possobil." 

My son Joshua lives in Philedel[)hi — a. 

Wouldn't do a days work if he could. 
Smokes dirty cigarettes, jest like the city chaps,

One day we went dao-«Ti, when the circus came to taown, 

They'd set up by the old mill dam. 
Ma says, "Let's go into the side show. 

And take a look at the tatooed man." 

I saw a cuss look sharp at my pocket book, 

Sed he, "Gimme two tens fer a five?"

And you'r arrested, as sure as you're alive."

I was born about four thoiisaud years ago ; 

Aud there's notliing ever happened I don't know; 

I saw old king Pharoh's daughter 

Finding Moses in the water, 

And I'll lick the man who saj's it isn't so. 

I saw Satan when he roamed the Garden o'er; 

I saw Eve and Adam driven from the door; 

TVliile the apple they were eating 

Round the bushes I was peeking; 

I can swear I am the man that ate the core. 

I saw Cain when he slew Abel in the glade ; 

And they say the game was poker that they played ; 

But right there is the rub 

For he hit him with a club ; 

I am sure it was a diamond or a spade. 

I saw Noah when he built his famous ark ; 

I crept into it one night when it was dark ; 

I saw Jonah in the whale, 

And I pulled the lion's tail ; 

And I crossed the land of Canaan on a lark. 

I taught Solomon his little a b c's; 

I helped Brigham Young invent limburger cheese ; 

I was sailing on the bay 

With Methusela one day, 

And I saved his flowing whiskers from the breeze. 

Queen Elizabeth was dead in love with me; 

We were married in Milwaukee secretly; 

But I turned around and shook her, 

And I went with General Hooker 

To fight mosquitoes down in Tennessee. 

I have sat with kings and queens on either hand. 

And jacks and aces too, you understand; 

I have seen an auction sail 

On the water in a gale. 

And I've seen a schooner drunk upon dry land. 

I remember when this country had a king; 
I saw Cleopatra pawn her wedding ring; 
I saw England's colors flying 
When George Washington stopped lying, 
And the day that Paddy first began to sing. 

I am a highly educated man. 
To keep my brains within my hat I plan. 
I have been on earth so long- 
That I've learned to sing this song — 
"When Abraham and Isaac rushed the Can."

THE FIRST FASHION LEAFLET 



266 




1916 



(With apologies to Edgar) 

Once upon a morning dreary, wliile we jiondered, weak and weary, 
Over many a quaint and curious jiniblein oC forgotten lore; 
While we sat there, slowly cramping, suddenly there came a tramping, 
As of someone loudly stamping, stamping on the hallway floor. 
"He is sore today," we muttered, "hist, he's opening the door." 
Only this and nothing more. 

AJi, distinctly I remember, it was in the bleak December, 
And each separate frosted member of the Physics Czar was hoar. 
And his sealskin cap was shining; and a scarf his neck entwining. 
Made the class room cease devining what made Billy feel so sore." 
"Tn-as the cold, that loves to cluster where the heat waves are no more. 
"Closyerbooks." (He said no more.) 

And the spiteful, point-blank snapping of those words my nerve was sapping; 
Thrilled me — filled me with fantastic terrors often felt before. 
So that now. to still the beating of my heart, I sat repeating, 
"He will tell us how the heating of a bit affects the bore. 
And the subject will console him, for all cold things make him sore. 
'Twill be this and nothing more." 

But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token, 
CTwas the silence that the sailors say precedes the tempest's roar) 
For he rose and said to me, "Please give the law of Archimedes ; 
At what temperature does air freeze; can you raise it any lower?" 
But I found, on search for answers in my littered upper floor. 
Darkness there, and nothing more. 

Not the least obeisance made he: not a minute stopped or stayed he; 
But the pent-up maledictions on my head he did outpour. 
Nothing soothing then he uttered, and he talked so fast he stuttei-ed. 
And the class looked scared and muttered, "We have heard that line before." 
Then the raving Czar of Physics, with a mighty gesture swore 
I should take it — evermore. 

"Prophet," thought I, "thing of evil, prophet still if prof, or devil. 
True it is that some among us are to take this coarse course o'er." 
(And his eyes had all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming. 
And the Tungsten o'er him streaming threw his shadow on the floor.) 
"Some of us are doomed to listen, as you rant and pace the floor. 
To your ravings — evermore." 

And the luckless ones are sitting, still are sitting, still are sitting 
In the seats reserved for P. G.'s, near the lab'ratory door. 
Yes, of course I am among them, for the Prophet he has stung them — • 
'Twere far better had he hung them to the Physics Building door, 
Where the air keeps getting denser, perfumed by his hand-rolled censer; 
Where his signal-fire burning tells the world a class is o'er. 
We can fool him — nevermore.

Amhbest 

Amher!5t was founded by Romulus, liemus & Co. so long ago that the 
religious journals no longer publish the event as news. An old tradition, in- 
teresting but without foundation, fixes the blame for this act on a certain J. 
J. Jeffries Amherst, Bart., who came to these hostile shores in the Shamrock 4, 
long before the year of the little apples. J. J. J. was advertising manager of 
Colonial Future Fame Companj^, at one time a flourishing concern with inter- 
locking directorships in several historical associations. He was also one of 
the minor characters in Shaltespeare's comedy "Sabrina." Amherst is prettily 
situated near the Amherst Post Office. It is composed entirely of siib\irbs, 
which are very attractive to tired vacationists who go there to recuperate and 
attend occasional classes. There are two seasons in Amherst — School and 
Summer. At the end of summer the population returns and the weeds are 
burned from in front of the To\\ti Hall. The town is bounded on the noi'th by 
Brooks Farm, on the east by a prostrate two-rail fence known as the C. V., on 
the south by Mt. Holyoke, and on the west by a twelve-cent fare to Hamp. 
Clyde Fitch and Noah Webster stayed in Amherst for a while as the result of 
not betting on the right candidate, and Eugene Field established the Safety 
First slogan by leaving the village at a tender age, having learned from obser- 
vation that death in the place was only a question of time for even the strongest 
and most robust. Amherst is noted for blind tigers, poor food, handsome 
shade trees, bone glasses, and quiet cemetaries. The principal industries of 
Amherst are fishing poles, straw lids, fussing, moving furniture, looking wise, 
and writing home for money. 



iop? 



Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know 
where we can find information upon it. 

Advertise in the Index ; it identifies you. 

The Index is worth the money you pay. Ask the man who owns one. 

It's the good apple tree that gets the most clubs throwii at it. 

Shout your wares through the Index. It's the squeaky wheel that gets 
the grease. 

Calves may come and calves may go, but the bull goes on forever. 

Know something about everything, and everything about something. 

Don't dodge difficulties ; meet them, greet them, beat them.

One summer I thought I would <^i) to the country 

To spend my vacation — I needed the rest. 

Next morning I went to the well for some water. 

(They told me that drinking well water was best.) 

I had a red patch on the seat of my trousers, 

And when I leaned over exposed it to view. 

A bull who was grazing at the red patch stood gazing. 

(Now in such a case what would any bull do?) 

With his horns he did buck it ; the red patch he struck it. 

I went down with the bucket that hung in the well.

The modest girl of long ago 

Concealed her architecture. 
How she was built you's never know, 

You only could conjecture. 
But all the girls you see today 

With candor most emphatic, 
Their structural designs display 

From ground floor to the attic.

Eut 1 must' return to my story, from which I have wandered at the risk 
of fatiguing you, my patient, bovine readers, and of putting you, at the very 
start of my anecdote, in a state of mind little adapted to receive as bony fldo 
facts a tale so thrilling and at the same time so frightfully rural as this, or to 
cope with a theme which requires such grotesque mental grappling. Some 
from among you, friends, bolder, perhaps, than the rest comma may say, "Let 
us delay no longer; come what come will, let us have at this awful thing; out 
upon it." But not so fast. Precipitation is the thief of time. Go slowly be- 
fore approaching so steep an intellectual hill as the one we are now preparing 
to ascend. Perhaps, by way of preparing you for the shock which is sure to 
follow, a hint of the tremendous import of the revelations which are about to 
hit the civilized world between the eyes would be only fitting at this time. 
Dinnis, turn that ci-ank. 

The day was tempestuous. Lightenings flashed from the cerulean sky. 
A young man with a ghastly smile flickering across his map stood before the 
chapel door. In his hand was a black note book, nine inches by eleven. His 
shoes were full of feet. He glanced timidly at the tower clock, and then 
collecting chronological data from his own paperweight, burst into a fit of 
demonical laughter. Entering the ancient pile, he walked into the library to 
study his lessons. 

Light from the setting sun struggled in through windows dimmed by the 
dust of innumerable years and lay in a ragged puddle upon the hobnailed floor. 
Over in the corner a crowd was flghting for places around the latest issue of 
the Contemporary Review. Unable to endure the sight, he sloped into the 
stackroom. A game of tag was in full swing through the aisles, and two 
seniors were whistling "School Days." The tenor was doing very well. Several 
female assistants in the oflflce were pluming themselves, gazing out of the 



276 




1916 




windows the while into the middle of next 
week. The Man behind the Mask was 
seated at the office phone, kidding centi'al. 
The only quiet person was a sophomore 
who was seated in the shadow of a book- 
case glancing furtively at the illustrations 
in Grey's Anatomy. Someone upstairs 
threw the organ pump into low, and the 
vibration shook the glass from a picture 
of a group of grave old men, bearded with 
moss and in garments shiny, labelled "College Life Board, 1775." At the 
sound, the asistant at the desk shifted in his seat and snored in a different key. 
Pussy-foot slammed by on his way to the reserve shelf. The piano above gave 
out, and the College Band began to accompany the trombone, but Nubs lit into 
his scales and drowned them out. Tabby sat on the floor in front of the card 
index, reading German chemical terms for breathing exercises. Itano and 
Van Suchtelen struck up "Hoch der Mikado," each in his native tongue. Some- 
one cut out the muffler on the radiators, and Whispering Smith yelled, ''Here 
comes Barney Oldfield." Sliver came pacing in, shouting, "Phi Kappa Phi this 
way." He wanted to take out the new fitty-six-pound dictionary, but it was on 
file in the basement under Harper's for the year 1896. Stone eased in soon 
after, and began to pick leaves at random from the shelves, but was told to 
beer little more careful what he did. Baldy wanted to know about best cellars, 
admitting that it was rather a novel appleication to make. Sprague tiptoed in, 
and inquired for a book on genealogy. Johnny O. tried to help him out, and 
said that he hadn't seen any family tree in the room, this not being a branch 
librai"y, and wanted to know weather it was fair to add that there were plenty 
of square roots round, or knot. The Bloke next walked in, arm in arm with his 
crutches, and ordered "Eyes right," but Woof-woof (who always maintained 
that out of psych, is out of mind) argued that he was wrong. Just then some- 
body climbed onto the keyboard of the sweet old organ and began to practice 
ground and lofty tumbling. With a wild whoop of despair the young man who 
had come to study his lessons made a bolt for the door, which to say the least 
was very thoughtful of him.

"I never expected to advocate the same man for Congress as would be 
advocated by Prof. Spragne. But when we are for Lewis there are no party 
lines, everyone is for our Dean (Prolonged applause). There are no democrats 
in my native state, Vermont, to be a democrat there is akin to being a horse 
thief. Once the democrats got together and invited Stearns of Chicopee to ad- 
dress them. Stearns replied that he was busy, and suggested that if the demo- 
crats of Vt. would come to his back yard he would address them there. 
(Laughter and applause.) I moved to Mass. to get my vote to count. I like to

you pack the child's trunk preparatory to 
sending him to M. A. C, be sure to include 
a set of Horatio Alger to give him courage 
and incentive to stick out the first few weeks, 
and a pair of long pants besides the ones 
he wears away. It will not be necessary to 
pack his corduroy or khaki leg cases, his 
straw hat, or his collection of bow ties, for 
he will not need them for some time.

According to the department of agronomy, 
fall plowing now demands attention. With 
minor exceptions all land which is to be put 
under cultivation next year should be plowed 
before freezing. Note that the ground 
should be plowed before freezing, as this 
method takes care of any difficulties that 
might be encountered in plowing after the 
land is like a stone quarry. It is neither 
necessary nor desirable to turn furrows 
smooth and flat as in spring plowing, for if 
the land is quite rough the frost will be 
more effective in breaking up the soil and 
reducing it to a fine powder. For the bene- 
fit of the uninitiated we would say that the 
term "spring plowing," used above does not 
refer to springs or cushions attached to the 
plow, but to the time of year when the opera- 
tion is done. 

The poultry dept. is of the opinion that 
pullets should begin laying freely this 
month. They must be carefully sorted out, 
the most promising layers put in the laying 
pens, and the others in the fattening pens. 
Fountain pens are the best means for water- 
ing the birds. Treat your hens well; re- 
member that a sitting hen will not stand for 
much. 

The dept. of pomology now comes out 
with the statement that the apple harvest 
now demands attention. Be careful when 
going about the vineyard that you are not 
attacked by animals; there are a lot of 
gra(y) apes among the vines. Seeds for the 
determination of the life history of a one 
year old Baldwin apple tree can be obtained 
from the N. Amherst cider mill. For any 
further information regarding this tree, "ask 
the seed."

It occasionally happens that a farmer is 
put to a great inconvenience on account of 
anatomical disorders among farm animals. 
The up-to-date farmer should be acquainted 
with these common diseases and their reme- 
dies. With this fact in view the dept. of 
Vet. Science has issued the following bulle- 
tin: — 

Actinomycosis, — external swelling on jaw, 
or internally in mouth. Swelling may break 
and fungus growth appear; infectious. 

Give KI for a week, then omit for a week, 
then resume for a week. The animal should 
have weakened by this time. 

Acid stomach, — test with blue litmus. Give 
soda, chalk or charcoal. 

Azotitria, — sudden oppression, weakness, 
perspiration. Feed too high, exercise too 
little. 

Light feed when not at work; Epsom salts; 

soda ; aloes. 

Colic. — Animal lies down. Kicks toward 
body with hind feet. Looks around towards 
flank. Jerks tail ; groans and plunges about. 

Laudanum; chloral hydrate; cannabis; 
change diet. 

Conjtnictivities, — swollen and watering 
eyes. Inflamation. 

H3BO3 wash. 

Hydrophobia, — See Rabies. 

Influenza, — rapid fever. Head hangs 
down. Chills. Gnashing of teeth. Eyes 
full of tears. Give belladonna; quinine. 

Osteomalacia, — softening of the bone. De- 
praved appetite. Joints "crackle." Change 
diet ; give lime phosphate. 

Tapeiuorms, — prevent dogs from eating 
infected animals. 

Trichinosis, — a parasite of swine. "About 
80,000 to cubic inch." Allow no rats in hog 
pens; eat no uncooked pork. For further in- 
formation consult dept. of zoology.

The winter affords many enjoyments to 
mankind in general, but to no one class of 
men more than to the assiduous sophomore, 
who now sits down at his leisure(?), sur- 
sounded by all the comforts and necessities 
of life, namely, a pungent pipe and some 
Tuxedo, and a place to lay his feet, and 
pleasinglv( ?) spends the long winter even- 
ing in social converse, as by reading some 
useful and entertaining author, Milton or 
Spenser, or in fact any of the ancient proto- 
types eulogized by the pedagogues of the 
English dept. Reading and conversation 
(conversation being the elite word for "BuU- 
fest"), are to winter what herbaria are to 
spring, and Plasmodium vivax to autumn. 
They are the bugbear of the season. 
Superior to vernal joys, these permanent 
pleasures of the intellect are in vigor, when 
those are faded and no more. 

We hesitate to renew these suggestions, 
for the occasions of reading and studying to- 
gether, besides being a source of annoyance 
and suspicion, will always be looked upon 
with a flood of unutterable feelings and emo- 
tions which sweep o'er the bulwarks of our 
souls, ending in the last expiring wail, "My 
kingdom for a brick." 

Many alterations and repairs are likely to 
be required about the farm at this time of 
year. The poultry quarters should be fur- 
nished with feather beds; calks put on the 
cows' hoofs so that cowslips (not caltha 
paiusfris), will be less frequent; a box stall 
put in the horse barn, etc.

Begin right. Many important things fol- 
low which must be attended to this month or 
next year. You are likely to find the wife's 
opinion and judgment of great assistance in 
these matters, especially if he is a class 
ahead of you. Ask him what you had better 
plug up on and what can be left until the 
night before the exam. Ask his advice about 
arranging your cribs in the classrooms, and 
let him show you how to prepare them in the 
most compact and accessible form. Use your 
bean as auxilliary to the cribs, and be sure 
to take your briefs with you on leaving the 
exam., as they might excite suspicion. Truly, 
these are the times that try mens' souls.

The unvaried diet of winter now begins to 
tell, especially at Chesley's Converter (old 
things made new). Perhaps a change in ra- 
tions would be advisable, even at the cost of 
some trouble and expense. Try a steak over 
at Dick's some night or a cockroach cocktail 
at Eddies grill, and some soft throat wash 
for that dusty feeling. Freshmen would do 
well to get a letter of introduction to Profes- 
sor Hasbrouck from some influential person, 
and then study like time, for trig is a queer 
subject. Sophomores should avoid electing 
anything with which there is any work con- 
nected, and should cast about for a good 
legible set of Aggie Industry readings and 
maps. Get a frosh to ink in your botany 
drawings for you. Never mind the English; 
it's a "gut."

Farming in all branches begins in earnest 
now. The orchard must be pruned, un- 
profitable trees grafted and regrafted. Some 
farmers object to the use of the bridge graft, 
because they say it affords caterpillars an 
eas}' passage over the rough places on the 
tree trunk. San Jose should be gotten after 
with a spray pump. Instructions for repair- 
ing a broken pump may be obtained from 
the physics dept. for a O. Hydraulic rams 
are not suitable for spraying. Herpicide is 
the remedy, apply in a fine snray. 

The first batch of chickens should be 
started in the incubator about the middle of 
the month. Anv unfertile eggs may be gotten 
rid of at the dining hall, where they may be 
dropped on toast without injury. Turkeys, 
ducks, and geese should lay well this month. 
Refrain from using profanity when working 
in the hen yard; fowl talk is so prevalent 
there anyway. 

In making ligs grow, much depends upon 
seeing them three times a day, scratching 
their backs to make them gentle, and watch- 
ing closely to see if they need a little wood 
ashes or charcoal, a drop of lard or kero- 
sene on their backs to free them from lice, or 
a change of diet to make their appetite keen.

This might be called the planting month, 
for the setting of trees and grafts falls on 
this month. The professor of horticulture 
now takes the opportunity to make his annual 
pun upon the word "graft," and it will 
please him if the class indulge in at least 
moderate laughter. Throwing seeds in the 
greenhouse should now occupy the attention 
of all serious-minded students, but care 
should be taken to avoid striking the prof 
with misdirected ripened fertilized ovules. 
In the class orchard work, grafting wax 
makes delightful material for modelling into 
many curious and bizarre forms and for 
tossing playfully about. 

This is also the month for class tree 
planting, and participants in this sport 
should bear in mind the fact that if per- 
sonal irrigation is indulged in to too great 
an extent, it detracts from the solemn digni- 
ty of the occasion.

Massachusetts Agricultural 



The Massachusetts Agricultural College is a public service iustitu- 
tiou, the function of which is to benefit the agriculture and rural life of 
the state and incidentally that of the nation. 

In the fulfilment of its mission the College undertakes the work of 
Investigation, Eesident Instruction and Extension Service. 

Investigation follows three distinct lines: (1) scientific research, 
through which are discovered new laws governing the growth of plants 
and animals; (2) experimentation, which seeks to ascertain the best 
methods of applying science to practice; and (3) the agricultural survey 
or inventory of agricultural conditions and possibilities. 

The purpose of Instruction given to resident students is to prepare 
them for the agricultural vocations and also to train them in the princi- 
ples of good citizenship. Students pursuing the regiilar four years' 
course may specialize in any of the following named departments: 

Agriculture Landscape Gardening 

Agronomy Pomology 

Animal Husbandry Agricultural Chemistry 

Dairying Economic Entomology 

Poultry Husbandry Plant Physiology and Pathology 

Floriculture Microbiology 

Forestry Agricultural Education 
Rural Social Science 

Undergraduate courses are also ollered in a large number of depart- 
ments the work of which is not arranged as a "major." 

The Graduate School admits college graduates for advanced study in 
agriculture, botany, chemistry, entomology, horticulture, mathematics, 
microbiology, veterinary science, zoology, and rural social science.

College, Amherst, Mass. 



Various short courses and conferences are held at the college, among 
these being the following: 

Winter School of Agriculture. Farmers' Week. 

Summer School of Agriculture. Boys' Camps. 

Conference for Rural Social Workers. 

The task of the Extension Service is to disseminate agricultural 
knowledge to all people of the state having rural interests, and to assume 
an attitude of leadership or of co-operation in various activities, educa- 
tional, social or economic, which tend to benefit agriculture and country 
life. Thousands of persons are directly reached each year by the Exten- 
sion Service. Some of the types of work organized by this branch of the 
College are: 

Correspondence Courses in Agriculture Boys' and Girls' Clubs 

Itinerant Schools of Agriculture Traveling Libraries 

Educational Exhibits District Field Agencie3 

Demonstration Orcliards Lecture Courses
