This /ndex is well dedicated ; never was 
one better. Previous volumes, after the usual 
manner, have been kindly and generously 
dedicated, as an expression of appreciation 
and goodwill, to individuals. Uniformly 
they have been dedicated to some friend, 
teacher, leader, inspirer, — men who, by their 
helpful and unselfish spirit or by the power of 
rare personal qualities, or both, have made a deep and lasting impression upon the mind 
and heart of the Index class. On the other hand, here is a volume dedicated to a large 
group of Aggie men, undergraduates and alumni, which at this moment has reached the 
proud total of more than four hundred, a percentage not exceeded by many, if any, col- 
leges in the country. To this group, part of whom we have never seen, the 1919 Index 
is dedicated with an affection which cannot be expressed as a humble tribute, a feeble 
intimation, of the great regard and heartfelt respect in which we hold them. 

As you sweep forward from campus and home to answer the great call, no wonder 
that we, who because of age or of youth are unable to join you, look upon you as trans- 
figured, for transfigured you verily are by the whole-souled response you have made to 
the spell of this mighty conflict. No wonder we look upon you in rapt and reverent 
admiration as you pass by ; no wonder whenever we think of you, we feel like taking off 
our hats in profoundest respect and honor! You are real heroes, you men, and our heroes 
too! You will forever more, we have faith to believe, take rank beside the men of Mara- 
thon and the men of Gettysburg and the thousands of splendid souls who have fought for 
the great cause during the centuries intervening between those momentous days. This will 
be true if you never know battle on any field, for already you have manifested the same 
indomitable spirit, the same high consecration to great purposes as have characterized the 
world's best in every supreme test. 

It is entirely fitting that we should try to honor you even in this meagre way. In every 
way it is fitting that we should try, for what a wonderful measure of honor have you 
brought to us and what lustre have you added to the good name of our Alma Mater! We 
fully realize, however, that in no way can we pay you your full and just reward. "We 
cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow" your long list of names. Your conduct has been so 
splendid and fine that it is "beyond our power to add or to detract." It is for us, as it 
was for those others, to dedicate ourselves to the same task and to follow your example 
to the last ; to walk in your foosteps along the hard, difficult, and long road that leads to 
the ultimate goal of liberty, to take our places by your side when the time comes, and, if 
need be, to yield with you the last full measure of devotion. It is in this spirit and with 
this fixed determination that the 1919 Index is dedicated to you who since last spring have 
so gloriously and nobly led the way. God bless you.

SENIOR FOOTBALL TEAM 



History ttt tlj? Dtakut^ 




You ask us for a history, but our thoughts are not of 
the past, they leap forward unbidden into the near unfath- 
omable future. At our elbows are "Collegians" containing 
the names of fourteen men of our number who have been 
selected for the officers' training camp. Statistics also 
show twenty-one of our original class to be commissioned 
officers, and forty-five more to be in the service in other 
capacities. Eleven of these have already gone over. 

We see the past only as it reflects upon the uncertain 
present, and the veiled future. The memories of losing our 
freshman rope pulls and football game, and sophomore 
basketball, rifle, and banquet scrap, were always over- 
shadowed by those of winning freshman baseball, basket- 
ball and banquet, sophomore rope pulls, picture scrap, and 
football; but even coupled with thoughts of the Junior Prom 
and "tree-planting," and our victory over all comers includ- 
ing the faculty in interclass football this fall, the whole is dim and unimportant. 

We see our Freshman days happy and scarcely ruffled by the gigantic conflict. Our 
Sophomore year heard only an occasional grumble over the increasing cost of living. 
But the Junior year began to bear in upon us a more personal interest in the struggle. 
It changed the whole face of that third term. Eagerly we looked for something to do 
in behalf of the great cause, and tumbled pell-mell into service, — mostly agricultural. 
There will be few who can forget those days of indecision, the upset condition which 
followed the forcing home of the news that this war was to be ours. For the most part, 
the sacrifice of the term was more than repaid in experience. Yet, in the following fall only 
57 of our men returned to us. A feeling of restlessness pervaded the class, and still does. 
Why? One of the greatest questions that ever faces men confronts us now. "What 
is my duty — await the draft, or enlist?" These are questions each man is answering for 
himself, as his conscience and judgment dictate. As a result, we are losing men from 
oui classes, one at a time, slowly but surely. When we see their places vacant, we 
know one more decision has been made. 

Now it is that we merge ourselves into the common cause, and lose our own indi- 
vidual identities that future histories may tell of how America fought for Democracy 
and won.

This is an unusual year ! Piexy hinted this to us last 
fall, the price of our board strengthened our convictions, 
and the blustering weather of December, January and Feb- 
ruary removed all shadows of doubt. It is a year of the 
unheard of, the improbable, The unexpected; it is a year of 
speculation and unrest ; it is a year when any shell game 
proposed by the powers that be, will "get by. ' For in- 
stance, we calmly burn wood when the Fuel Administration 
refuses us coal ; we cheerfully accept an abreviated system 
of concentrated, pre-digested education which does no more 
harm nor good than any previous system ; we are deprived 
of our soft chapel seats, making sleep more difficult; and, 
unheard of in the annals of the institution, we submit with- 
out a murmur to ten hours of drill per week. These few 
things prove the "unusuahty" of the year. 
How different from the fall of 1915 when the class of 1919 entered M. A. C. 
as a record-breaking class with an enrollment of well over two hundred. The college 
was prospering, and on the upward road of progress and success. We had the greatest 
football team of years, a team that could play Harvard to a standstill. All other activi- 
ties, athletic and otherwise, were expanding and going on at full tilt. Compare all this 
with college as it has been this year, minus a varsity football team, and enrollment of 
one-half size, and far less activities. 

In the old days 1919 was "The Class." In athletics, debating, shooting, etc., her 
teams excelled. With two exceptions she won every 1918-1919 interclass contest. She 
was the first class to produce teams that could defeat a certain well-known nearby Acad- 
emy in all sports. A thousand times since then she has well proven her worth. But 
now she has been reduced to nearly one-half her initial enrollment and daily the old guard 
grows small. This decrease and the unusual year have been brought about by a cause 
which we know well, and which is brought more closely to us as our college and class- 
mates go to take their part in the great struggle. It remains with us who stay, to uphold 
the spirit and ideals of M. A. C. and 1919, and when we go forth they will help and 
strengthen us for the need of the Nation.

"Stubby" 

"I'll speak in a monstrous little voice" ■ 

Proctor, Vermont A X A House 

Proctor High School 

August 12, 1896; Chemistry; A X A; Manager Class 

Football (3). 

"Stubby" hails from the Green Mountain State, the home 
of big things. However, the boy's greatness lies not in the 
5 ft. 4 in. he boasts of. but his ability to "be there" when 1919 
needs him. It is no secret that he is a great admirer of the 
gentler sex — from a distance — but it would surprise most of 
us if he didn't pick a winner. "Stubby" can usually be found 
in the vicinity of the Chem Lab, but what attraction he finds 
there is enough to scare a man who hasn't got the "stuff" to get 
what he goes out for.

November 2, 1898; Animal Husbandry; A 2 <I>; Class 

Basketball (2); Class Football (3). 

We have here a boy who received his elementary education 
at Mt. Holyoke. "Quince" came to us last year from Colgate 
University. He has quietly battled his way to an unquestion- 
able standing among his classmates, both with his bean and his 
muscle. So far as we are able to find out, he has selected 
dairying as his idea of a perfect life. Should he ever forsake 
the "lowing kine," we fear he would before long grow lonesome 
and reseek the wilds of South Hadley.

The youthful ruff-neck comes to our circle from Melrose, 
in which place he played as a child. He is far from being 
quiet, for where there is something doing you are always sure 
to find "Bill." Baker seems to have been able to bluff his 
way by the Profs with one exception, for he still lakes his place 
with a younger generation and carefully dissects the little 
animals under "Doc" Gordon's watchful eye. "Bill" is major- 
ing in Ent. with the hopes that in after days he may be able 
to work at a "Government Job."

Above is "Red's" favorite expression, and if you do not 
believe it, line up in a game before his 180 lbs. of bone and 
muscle — mostly bone — and see if they look the same to him. 
"Red's" one great fault is to fall asleep in class. Even ammonia 
beneath his nose does not seem to disturb "Granite's" sonorous 
slumbers. He is so popular with the ladies that he takes a 
different one to each informal, but — "there's a reason." If 
"Red" could only fit with the girls as he does with the fellows, 
he would be able to start a harem that would make the Sultan 
green with envy.

Herbie's motto seems to be: To every action there is an 
equal and opposite reaction. When he was a freshman he 
played football against Ed Perry. That was the action. This 
year he has been playing in the interclass games, and if you 
have seen them, you have seen the reaction. He is also the 
exchange mail man and in that way, though by no effort of his 
own he has become one of the most important men on the 
campus. If the good wishes of his classmates mean anything, 
he need have no fears for the future.

Alan sings. It is not a bad voice at that, but it certainly 
does stir the hearts of his classmates in chapel. Alan could 
never quite understand why the scholarship committee couldn't 
have arranged his schedule so that he wouldn't have to get up 
in the morning to attend a first hour class. We understand that 
Alan has acquaintances over the mountain as well as across 
the river, but he is very reserved in speaking about them. He 
is majoring in Landscape Gardening, and the world is sure of 
some day benefitting by his work.

From the halls of Worcester Academy came our .llustnous 
"Pep." Upon his arrival, he sentenced us to the radiating 
effect of his smile, punctuated at both ends by dimples. "Father" 
spends most of his time browsing around among the microbes 
whose habitat is the Micro Building. Studious at times, yet 
he finds time to dispense sunshine among the fair sex. His 
genial disposition is of the nth power. Look well to your

"Buff" came down from Waban a fat little boy with the 
most beautiful dimples. He is a bold, bad man now. His 
thirst for the strenuous life is always in evidence on the hockey 
rink or tennis court, and cribbage becomes a "major" sport 
when Buffum ts pegging. Yet, at times, he gets very subdued 
and retires to his lair in the College Store to "romp all over 
the page." At present he has desires for two things: first, 
closer touch with Lenox, Mass., and second, a thorough knowl- 
edge of Ani Huzz. If he gets after them with the drive that 
has marked all his college course he will surely get them.

"Burt" is not a very noisy chap, that is, with his mouth, as 
he prefers to have his fiddle talk for him. Whenever you are 
within hearing distance of North College you can hear those 
sweet strains being coaxed from his violin. "Burt" has chosen 
Pom. for his major and last fall in Aggie Ec. 75 he told Doc 
Cance a few things about marketing his product. It has always 
been a mystery to some of us why "Burt" struggled through 
three terms of Feeds and Feeding, but we suppose it was so that 
his apple trees would be properly nourished. Just at present 
he is devoting most of his attention to flying. Perhaps if you 
look real close you can see his wings.

Nature has produced marvels, but she excelled herself when 
she delivered Aggie this gifted youth. John has travelled 
through every town in the U. S., has been Mayor of Dorchester 
and has never lost his way in Boston. If you don't believe us, 
ask him. "Doc" Cance drew a valuable addition to his major 
in "Cal," for as an information bureau he can't be equalled. 
John is intimately acquainted with all well educated people, 
including the fair sex. He is a model student, getting O K 75 
marks by never increasing the electric light bill, in fact, his 
aim in a college education is to make his tongue save his hands.

How V-D-P happens to be rooming at Draper Hall was a 
mystery for a while, and may be still for some. It is because 
"Cal's" day begins at 4.30 A. M. He is a "regular" baker and 
they can't get along without him. That is the only reason he 
hasn't been more in the limelight. Also, "Cal" need do noth- 
ing but clip Liberty Bond coupons this year. That shows the 
sort of fellow V-D-P is! He is the sort worth knowing.

he has been known to his personal friends as the "village

On seeing "Bob" promenading the campus, one would say, 
"Where was the accident?" but in reality he is not so dead as 
he looks. In fact, he is into everything, especially the hockey 
cage, where he is very expert at putting the puck with his nose. 
He has bulldozed P. Whittle and D. Ross since freshman year, 
but P. B. Hasbrouck is very friendly with "Bob." as he helps 
Billy with his one-way special. Although he is a leader in 
practically all he does, it is impossible for him to lead one of

he is a distinct success. If you want to know a "Jane," ask

dome. During his stay here, we have come to believe his 
major is physics and Mt. Holyoke, the former required and 
the latter elective. Perhaps, however, he will delude us and in 
the last analysis discover a camouflage to beat peroxide. He 
has our moral support.

have broken many a feminine heart. He "summers" down in

"Husky" Bill has become the pride of our heart. For two 
years he was chiefly famous for his widely advertised ability to 
juggle trunks for the American Ex. This year, however, 
he has blossomed out as our best little humorist, and his dry 
sallies are much appreciated wherever 1919 men foregather. 
The best thing Bill did this year was to take a prominent part 
on our first smoker committee, and to his efforts and ideas are 
mainly traceable the great success of that first service in wor- 
ship of "the great god Nick O' Teen."

It seems paradoxical that fog should originate in the hills of 
New Hampshire and gravitate to the North Shore, but such is 
the case with this particular Fogg. Finally a stiff sea breeze 
blew him up to M. A. C. and thus far not even the cold north 
wind of this section has been able to dislodge him from the 
Connecticut Valley. However, during his first two years here 
his nature carried him to such extremes that his folks deemed 
it wise to send his brother along to stabilize him. When he 
drifts from this valley we expect him to settle down, as real 
fogs do, only to rise in a short time to ethereal realms of success.

"Bill" came to M. A. C. to find himself, and he has surely 
succeeded. Algebra, zoo and physics were consumed by him 
as mere college ices, of which he is very fond. He is not 
officially an athlete, but has broken many records, by jumping 
from bed at 7.35 in the morning, and landing in the classroom 
five minutes later, having dressed, breakfasted and traveled a 
mile in the meantime. He receives voluminous letters quite reg- 
ularly, so we think he has found his affinity to assist him in his 
life work — the promotion of the apple industry.

work and elected a course with "Billy"; and what is more, she 
got away with it. Mary is as industrious as she is conscien-

There is a mystery about "Kid." His heart seems to be drawn

the number of letters he gets from both, there seems to be quite 
a question which of the two fair maidens will finally win. We

which come first, and striving for them in candlelight. To 
broaden his education, he skips across the river to learn some- 
thing of the "gentler sex." Lynn has elected agriculture and

he doesn't put in there, or holding a house-parly with a broom

we may safely predict the best of success in his career.

We realize that we missed a good deal by not having "Har" 
with us during our Freshman year. Realizing that he should 
do something more beneficial to society he decided to leave 
Colgate University and come to M. A. C, where he could 
study Floriculture. About the campus, if you hear a big noise, 
you may expect Hunter is the source. Although he sometimes 
afflicts us with some terrible puns, he has made many friends. 
The hardest thing he had to do was to keep silent during his 
initiation into A 2 *.

Quiet, unassuming and modest, yet his presence is always felt. 
A prodigy in the truest sense of the word, for with age comes 
wisdom. His favorite occupation about campus is getting out

one could set his watch by "Larry." Although he claims

we have 165 pounds of good nature, and an example of steady

Johnny's strongest asset is his good looks and social popularity 
(don't crowd girls, please), but he can pass as a good musician, 
too. If the old draft doesn't get "Sid," he is perhaps going to 
get a job upon graduation; preferably as bell-hop in a "fish

Priscilla is always rushing and just a little bit late to every- 
thing. It was in this same characteristic manner that she joined 
our ranks. Nevertheless, she has since caught up, and. we 
fear, forged ahead of most of us. Yes, Radcllffe was a heavy 
loser when Priscilla came to us last year. In general she holds 
herself aloof from the masculine element of the college, but now 
and then she condescends to favor some waiting youth with a 
smile. Not that he deserves it at all, but what's the use of being 
too severe on 'em?

for O'Hara. Joe hails from the big wire city, and although 
he is scarcely seen about the campus, he certainly is a live wire 
in everything he undertakes. Joe has no worries; he takes 
things as they come. He spends some of his time in arranging 
occasional dances and sleigh rides with a choice few of the 
"town talent," this being his chief occupation, outside of fooling 
the profs.

Ned is one of our commuters, making the trip down from

by means of his "trusty mount." As a result of his speedy 
transportation he generally sports a red nose, and may fre-

worker and usually accomplishes that which he sets out to do, 
whether it be studies, shooting or music. Most of his spare 
time is spent prone in the Drill Hall popping away at targets. 
Ned is majoring in Micro, he is also wearer of an "rMt." It 
follows then that his slogan is to "Clean up the Germs and the

work. Although he is a librarian, George helps the college by 
lending his voice to the Glee Club, and for three years he has 
been a member of this organization.

shown himself to the class in baseball, football and basketball. 
He is also an artist at waxtreading and can sometimes be seen 
executing this art at the Informals. Occasionally, on a moon-

sey, he soon became at home in the heart of — the Connecticut 
River Valley. "Cliff" is a firm believer in college life and co- 
education; informals, senior shows, etc., receiving his hearty 
support. He is one of the few who really appreciate the efforts 
of the Grounds Department in the ravine. His chief object 
here seems to be to become a general in the Aggie army, and 
to spread terror in the hearts of even classmen on the tennis

Here's "Minty," one of that prominent co-ed party who calls 
themselves the three-thirds. To all she is friendly, but to 

one ! "Minty" has decided to work with flowers, and we 

think she is going to succeed. Whether she undertakes garden- 
ing on a commercial scale, or just beautifying the ground about 
the little white home where lives "the dearest little mother in 
the world." We believe that Helen's own house will not fall, 
for it will be built on the firm foundation of a certain cliff. We 
call Helen a good sport, a successful student, and a loyal 
sister of '19.

"Sarge" came to Aggie to find the solution of the great 
Southern problem, intending to return to his native hearth and 
"show em" how folks do it "up North." Time makes many 
changes, however, and he now claims to have at least solved 
the problem of: "How two can live cheaper than one." This 
task solved, he has delayed putting it into practice so he could 
sign up for Uncle Sam's high-flyers. He is due to take a 
"flying trip" of one kind or another before long.

When Stafford donned his little green-buttoned cap with the 
rest of us, he started right in to satisfy his thirst for knowledge, 
but the thirst is still unquenched. This rather quiet chap has 
not happened to come before the public eye very often, even 
by the popular Dean's Board method. But the greatest mys- 
tery is how such a fellow with a ready smile can seem so 
immune to the allurements of the fair ones. We strongly sus- 
pect that all the evidence in his case has not yet come to light.

The first thing that happened to Chester after reaching Am-

was the chosen word and he still wears it. His great failing is 
his appetite and his friends can usually be sure of finding a 
supply of first class eating apples tucked away in a suitcase 
under his bed. "Doc's" ambition while at college is to gain 
Knowledge and possibly a little extra avoirdupois; at present 
he is in a fair way to do both. "Doc" won't set the world on 
fire but he accomplishes things, and in a quiet way.

Sidney is one of our boys who does not say a great deal as a

which he makes Daniel Webster look like an amateur. On 
the strength of this accomplishment he tried his hand at dra- 
matics. His love of a good informal is greater than that for 
Billie's Physics. "Sid's" aristocratic bearing is only a mask 
behind which we find a really live wire. Those who have

certainly little the matter with "Ed." He would

when he broke his hand on a sophomore's head in the famous

He is the most regular of men. Each morning, punctually at 
7 A. M. he rolls over, wollops his "wife," and sweetly in- 
forms him that it is time to arise. To his most intimate friends 
he is known as a contortionist "of parts." Aside from a few 
leanings toward "Carnegie" and moonlight skates in "Para- 
dise," "Bill" is a model youth. We recommend Opportunity 
to take care that "Bill" does not overtake him and grab the 
forelock from behind.

made the sophomore football team. All his ability is not shown

to study agriculture is more than we can figure out, for this 
man was cut out to be Ziegfield's assistant in choosing chorus 
girls for the Follies. However, "Mike's" dark hair, shining 
eyes, and rosy cheeks match well with a white coat, so we 
feel quite certain that he will make good in the Chem Lab, 
and some day will be as big as Doc. Chamberlain.

chased all around the drill hall floor by "Dolly" Dole or some 
other big beef, but his presence on the 1918 and 1919 cham-

Friends, faculty, fellow students. 

Lend me your ears, 

While I review the doings of the sophomores 

And then extol them. 

You all did greet not long ago 

A most ungainly bunch of men, 

Who did but makee you smile. 

Of course, pea green, they were, 

But, yet, not quite as bad as some, 

For they showed grit 

And took their paddling well. 

Against great odds, they lost the fight 

On freshman field, clad in night array. 

But ne'er dismayed they came back strong ; 

Refused to sip the water of the pond 

And stayed their ground with loss of but 
few feet. 

In all sports against the Sophs, except one. 

Was '20 beaten, but not done. 

In slush and mud for minutes two 

Six '20 men against six '19 pulled. 

The result, great, '19's buttocks cold 

And soiled from dragging on the slippery 

earth. 
Acknowledged beaten in most athletic sports 

New plays were made to gain '20 fame. 

A tax was laid, seven hundred bones, 

Upon our back, to finish the field 

So well begun by men before. 

Withm a week it all was paid. 

And honor duly placed where it belonged. 

Finals came and went again 

Some men went home, to try anew. 

Winter came and '20 then. 

Settled down to bone some more. 

Again finals came and disappeared, 

A few more left, but very few. 

Then came spring and with it war. 

And '20 heeded well the call. 

Men went on farms and tilled the soil 




Until the new year came again. 

The frosh fell well before the slaughter great, 

Not one of six contests could they win. 

Our glory complete, we tried to work, 

To learn a bit of Physics and of Zoo, 

Of An Hous, of Botany, of Chemistry and 

French. 
We must speed up, they coaked it on. 
A tangled mess was on our minds, and 

thoughts 
Of one way tickets soon mixed in. 
But we worried on and did our best, 
Praying some, that the wrath of the Gods, 
And Demi-Gods appease somewhat and that 
They reason some and give us credit. 
For our hard attempts. 

The term is closed and now '20 starts anew, 
Realizing mistakes and vows to do her best 
In the present strife. 
To do her part, if possible more; 
To serve full well, the need as felt. 
To grit her teeth and plow through strong. 
That always hereafter as heretofore. 
She ne'er gave up, or stopped to snore.

You come to us. Oh Freshmen, at the time of a crisis 
in the existence of our college as well as our country. We 
have plunged ourselves into a terrible war and on each man 
in the United States, because of this, lies a deepened re- 
sponsibility. On you, who have hardly started as yet, on 
the road to specialized knowledge, does not come now the 
brunt of the burdens of the war in its active phase, but, in 
time, if Democracy and Right have not conquered, this 
work of righting the world's wrongs will come on you. But, 
let us consider that as non-existent or at least in the far 
future. Do you realize that it is your class whose num- 
bers are least likely, soon, to be affected? It is to you, 
therefore, that the whole college turns for team-work and 
co-operation. Other freshmen classes have been expected 
to do nothing in particular but learn from their friends 
the upperclassmen the way Aggie expects her men to conduct themselves, and the way 
her men show their mettle in all encounters. But you are not given this privilege. It is a 
common saying that the circumstances make the man and we are working under the sup- 
position that this is true. In a time like the present, when everyone is stirred to action in 
brain as well as muscle, we give you added shares in the carrying on of our college work 
and consider you as men already rather than men in the making. 

You have been denied the greater part of the college activities which unite, in the 
loyal spirit of Aggie men, all classes, and have been given, to replace it, the activities of 
the class, but notwithstanding this, it must be with a cheer for Aggie that the work goes on. 
Our history is one to which hardly more than a conclusion is yet to be written ; but 
yours has for introduction the fire of enthusiasm of an inspired age and is yet to be con- 
tinued. Put into it all this inspiration and make Aggie proud of 1 92 1 !

This will, perhaps, be the last banquet season, and at least to all the men of 1919, it will ever 
remain the only one. This ancient and honorable custom of M. A. C. passed into the land of forgotten 
joys with a glorious victory for the class of 1919. 

Throughout the year the sophs had us labelled as a "pepless" bunch, and this surprise took them 
completely off their feet. Since then the subject has been avoided by most of the '18 men. 

The election of the class officers was held in the early spring, at the old fair grounds. It was nearly 
twelve o'clock on a starless night. Each man, as he came in, was required to give the password, and 
the election was most uncannily mysterious, as the freshmen filed by a single candle to deposit their votes. 

The Banquet Season opened Saturday, the first of May. Sunday night at 12 o'clock half the class 
met at Leverett ; the other half was to assemble at the Hadley bridge in Hamp on the following day. 
Most of the excitement fell to the crowd at Leverett. There were 63 who met there in a freight car. 
Starting about midnight and led by "Doc" Williams, they mads their way for several miles across 
country, through sand, brush, swamps, and brooks, to a tobacco barn in the midst of the "zone." They 
arrived about 2.30 A. M. and remained hidden for the next twelve hours. That barn had perfect ven- 
tilation, and as the night was no summer eve, few got any sleep. In the morn.ng, the sympathetic owner 
of the barn brought them some bread and coffee. This disappeared in no time, but tasted better than a 
banquet. A lookout was kept for sophomores, but of course they suspected nothing and were far away. 
Towards noon three laborers were seen coming across the field toward the barn, who, as they approached, 
proved to be three of the class officers who had adopted that disguise to cross the zone. 

Soon after, the crowd left the barn and escorted the officers to the boundaries of the zone, and ;hen 
started for Cooley's house in Sunderland, where an officer was hidden, besieged by sophomores. The 
fellows, after being shut up in a barn twelve hours, naturally wanted excitement. The crowd wasn't 
dressed for Sunday school, and would have looked well as a Roman mob. No wonder the sophomores 
looked on the advancing throng with fear. The sophs stood their ground, however, and soon the door- 
yard was filled with struggling groups. In the midst of the scrap. King, the officer, ran out of the door, 
and picking his way through the fighting mob made his getaway. The battle was soon over, but many 
carried away souvenirs. Some had beautifully colored optics, others bled freely from the nose, one 
freshman sported two pairs of handcuffs the enemy had snapped on him, and another had broken his 
hand on a soph's head. The crowd then went across lots, after stopping at a farmhouse for first aid io 
the wounded, and to borrow a file for the handcuffs, to the railroad tracks which they followed down 
to Cushman. 

Here they took a train and rode in style to Amherst. They walked to a place a little below *he 
center, where they met another gang of sophomores who tried to prevent them from boarding a trolley 
en route to Holyoke. The freshmen were again victorious, and in due time reached Holyoke. The 
natives there turned to stare at the bunch as they waited for the West field car. They probably thought 
a shipload of immigrants or a gang of gunmen had arrived. 

When they arrived at Westfield, they found the rest of the class, and after trying to remove some 
of the effects of a couple of fights and a night spent in a tobacco barn, they all sat down to the festive 
board about 10 P. M. The sophomores captured but one officer, Batchelder, and when they saw ihey 
were to get no more, he was allowed to go. The other officers escaped very easily. 

Thus the whole class was assembled at one of the greatest freshmen banquets ever held. After 
the banquet, at which no one held back, for most of them had not eaten for six or eight hours. Prof. 
Machmer gave them some good advice, and "Kid" Gore added a few words, and then the officers told 
their experiences of the past few days. 

The freshmen started back to Amherst in two special cars at I o'clock. It was a happy, but some- 
what sleepy bunch, that arrived in Amherst at half past three that May morning.

VARSITY' RELAY TEAM— 1917 



FOOTBALL 

Due to the late opening of college and war 
conditions in general, it was decided by the Joint 
Committee on Athletics to give up Varsity foot- 
ball during the season of 1917. A majority of 
last year's "M" men did not return to college, 
having gone into war service. Captain Weeks is 
a captain of infantry at Camp Devens, Bob 
Holmes and Lewis Spaulding are second lieu- 
tenants, "Ras" Pond is in the Amublance Corps 
in France, and "Goo" Grayson is in the National 
Army. Fraser, Maginnis and Moynihan of last 
year's squad are second lieutenants. 

In place of Varsity football an interclass 
series was played off, the senior class winning 
the championship. The members of the Faculty 
challenged the seniors for the championship of the 
College and were defeated in a post-season 
game. Chapman, who was to be manager of 
football this fall, has been made manager of 
basketball. 

BASKETBALL 
Last winter, after a lapse of eight years. 
Varsity Basketball was taken up. Under the 
coaching of "Kid" Gore, a good team was whip- 
ped together and a successful season carried 
through. Emory Grayson '17 was captain and 
Newell Moorehouse '17 manager. The regular 
team consisted of Pond and McCarthy forwards, 
E. Grayson center, F. Grayson and Sedgwick 
guards. The team was well equipped with sub- 
stitutes, among them Squires, Irving, and Popp 
forwards, Hawley and Hagelstein centes. King 
and Parkhurst guards. 
;e resulted in victories. Three of the games were 



ter, being opposed by Yale, Dartmouth, 
is, two ties, and three defeats were the 
team and Captain "Dave" Buttrick de- 



point; D. Ross, coverpoint; 
; substitutes, Harwood and 



A six game schedule was played and four of th 
played on the local floor and received enthusiastic support. 

HOCKEY 

The hockey team went up against a stiff schedule last w

The M. I. T. and Williams games were played on the campus. The Williams game was played 
as the prom game. The team had a fine trip to West Point and defeated the soldier boys under freezing 
conditions. Our old rivals in Springfield received two thorough trimmings. 

The team was made up as follows: Buttrick (Capt.), goal; L. Ro: 
Richardson, left wing; Stiles, center; Chisolm, rover; Seavey, right w 
Hunnewell. 

RELAY TEAM 

The Relay team of the past winter season had a very successful season under the coaching of 
Lawrence Dickinson, winning two out of four races. The races lost were well run and were a credit 
to the team. Pratt '17 was elected captain. The remainder of the team was composed of Bainbridge 
'18, Clough '17, and Yesair '19. Lyons '18, Weeks '18, and Wilcox were the substitutes. Yesair. as a 
new candidate, did exceptionally good work. 

Varsity Relay was supplemented by a very good schedule of Interfraternity Relay races. Phi 
Sigma Kappa winning first place in the series. On March II, a close and exciting interclass track 
meet was held and two records were broken by Bell '17 and Goff '19. 

BASEBALL 

The baseball season started with a fine schedule, and the best of prospects as far as material was 
concerned.. Captain Day, left field; "Rog" Chambers, second base, and "Steve" Richardson, catcher, 
were the only veterans from the previous year's team, but formed a strong nucleus. McCarthy, Westman, 
Maginnis, Pond, Yesair, and Faxon played consistently. 

Westman pitched the majority of games and came through in fine style. After defeating Trinity, 
the team received a bad setback from Brown. The next week, however, on the campus with Capt. 
Day making a hit on every trip to the plate, the boys came back and won from Rhode Island in a 
close game. 

Just before the Vermont trip, war was declared, and the schedule after that trip was closed.

Since this is the first wartime Index, it is only fair that in it we should make some specific mention 
of the part our college has already played. We say now that we are proud of that part, but that the 
limits of space must confine us to the undergraduates. 

On April 22, 1917, twenty days after the United States of America entered the war against 
Germany, President Butterfield announced that plans were being perfected to enable anyone to leave 
college for war work who wished to do so. Work to be so considered included munition work, mili- 
tary service, war-garden supervision, farming, etc. Later in the same week. Dean Lewis announced that 
everything had been arranged and added, confidentially, that the president hoped that "in ten days 
there wouldn't be a man left on the campus." 

The plan under which men were allowed to leave was as follows: provided a man's work was 
declared satisfactory to date by his instructors, he could turn in the address of an employer with whom 



Eign an agreement binding himself to stay in "mobilization" work for at least 

y change of address, and to report every four weeks as to the progress of 

port at the end of the twelve weeks was required from the parent or guardian 

(l return for this work, the student was to receive full credit for the courses 

It was further decided to open late in the fall, in order to allow those farmers 

ollege to harvest the extra crops they were urged to plant. 

Although we did not quite live up to the president's wish, in a very short time four hundred and 

seventy men had left, and o'.hers continued to do so, until only a handful of from twenty to thirty 

were left to finish out the college year. Of those leaving eighty-four per cent went into agriculture.

66.01 per cent were actually engaged in farming, 5.53 per cent had positions as war-garden 
visors, and 8.07 per cent entered military service. Such are the rough figures regarding the ■ 
but the statistics have been much more fully reported upon by the president's office than space he 
permit, and our concern is mainly not with how did M. A. C. serve but in what spirit did h 
place themselves at Uncle Sam's disposal and to help win the war. 

We, being college men, had been trained to believe in the incalculable worth of ideals.

Massachusetts Agricultural College men we had been trained in 
to fill the two greatest needs of America in 1917. Every one of 
doing something. And so It was that when President Butterfiel 
jumped at it. 

So we went out from Aggie in the spring of 1917 utterly refusing to regard our action as a 
sacrifice, and we worked hard all summer. When part of us returned in the fall, we found the ranks 
greatly thinned. Many had been drafted, others had enlisted after working as farmers all summer, and 
others had remained on the farm. All during the fall term men kept dropping out. "Where's So and 
So?" The answer was generally in one word. "Aviation," "Radio," B, 
thing equally brief and expressive. Although we regretted their going, w 
appeared that some other fellow had decided on the course he judged 
was hard to make. Now as never before, we are coming to realize the 
of the men who stay behind and farm while they want to fight. "They als. 
wait," and we all know that the reserves have a harder time of it, in everything excepting the physical 
sense, than do the first line fighters. Thus it is that we are equally proud of those who have gone and 
those who have stayed. 

This, then, is a brief account of the spirit of the M. A. C. undergraduates in the first few months 
of the war. We went out to serve, and are still going, with a cynical grin and a punch. We are not 
puffed up by the small part we have taken, but our one hope for the future is that the spirit that 
called us may never die, nor even sleep.

Albert E. Burns was born at Hartford, 
Conn., April 1, 1876. He became quite bald 
at the age of ten. This resulted from his 
being the son of a Jewish bartender who used 
to spin him on his head to see who would pay 
for the drinks. Water-on-the-brain set in, and 
the hairs fell in and were drowned. Dr. Burns' 
whole life is just filled with thrilling adventures 
like this. 

At the tender age of fourteen he had 
another slight attack of water-on-the-brain 
which brought with it the desire to go to sea. 
Accordingly, one bright day early in June of 
1 890 he walked seventy-eight miles through a 
raging blizzard to the tracks of the Seaview 
Railroad. Here he boarded a train which, as 
he thought, was to bring him to New London 
and to his heart's desire, the ocean. But alas, 
the fates were agin the boy, for the engineer 
in starting the train opened the throttle in re- 
verse instead of full speed ahead, with the 
result that the runaway alighted at Amherst, 
Mass., in the spring of 1893. Nevertheless 
and notwithstanding, resolute and undaunted, 
the lad marched up Main Street with firm tread and grim determination. Crossing 
Pleasant Street, he followed Amity Street as far as South Prospect Street. Here he met 
up with a lady by the name of Mrs. Hayrick, who took him in and gave him a good home. 
At this time, the Mass. Agate, and Am Hearts Colleges were running full tilt. 
This good woman became inspired by the good work of these institutions, and founded the 
far-famed "Hayrick School of Higher Understanding." This point marks the beginning 
of the young man's pedagogical career. Starting as custodian of the girls' dormitory, he 
rose rapidly, step by step, to the high office that he now holds, that of Dean of the "H. S. 
of H. U." He is an excellent man for the place, because he possesses unlimited oratorical 
ability, to say nothing of his being able to shake his feet. 

And so, it is to this man, Dean Albert Euripides Burns, that this book is slovenly 
dedicated.

After graduating from M. A. C. I was very busy trav- 
elling around the country, and I did not keep up to date in 
the news concerning the college. So it was not until the 
spring of 1 940 that I arrived again in Massachusetts. I 
determined to visit my Alma Mater again, and I arrived in 
Amherst in due time and walked up toward college. 

As I approached the campus I noted many new houses 
with Greek letters on the doors or in other conspicuous 
places. Girls were going in and out of these houses, whist- 
ling and chatting away like so many magpies. Later I 
learned that these were soronety houses. Coming on to the 
campus I saw numerous other girls going from one building 
to another, and occasionally one or two fellows, silently 
walking about arm in arm. All this puzzled me greatly. 

In front of the drill hall (which, by the way, had been 
remodelled and was scarcely recognizable), I met a rather 
timid looking fellow wearing a freshman cap. I thought I 
would be friendly, so said, "Hi!" He saluted, and an- 
swered, "How do you do." I was rather taken back by this 
but fell into conversation with him. First I asked him what 
was going on at the drill hall, for I had seen girls coming 
from there. "O," he said, "they are preparing for the In- 
being given to the Amherst fellows tomorrow." "But where are all the fellows?" He

informed me that the pingpong team was dow

We walked toward South College and

freshman said, "Oh, here comes my sister; sh

I began the conversation, meanwhile nursing my crushed hand, by asking what was the enrollment of 
the college. She said there were about 950 girls and 25 fellows, mentioning the fellows rather as an 
afterthought. I was greatly surprised and asked if there were no sports at Aggie. She looked at me 
with pity for my ignorance. "We won the football championship from Vassar last fall, we tied Wellesley 
in hockey, and we have beaten Simmons and Ml. Holyoke in baseball this spring. The most important 
game is with Smith tomorrow," she said upon leaving. I learned later that M. A. C. and Smith were 
bitter rivals because the Amherst men came to Aggie for fussing instead of going to Smith. 

Just then the chapel bell rang and I decided that I would like to attend chapel again, so we walked 
toward Stockbridge Hall. Girls poured out of North and South Colleges, all going toward chapel. They

A COLLEGE LIFE TALK 
Prof: — "Young men, as you probably 
know, you are now in college. Can anyone 
tell me how cold it was this morning? Two 
below? I might say at this point that the 
thermometer here in Amherst often registers 
as much as twenty below, and — let us have 
order, please ! Do any of you fellows think 
you know how to study? Well, you may 
now but you won't think so at the end of 
the term. How many of you have cats in 
your homes? H-m, not many. The Dean 
wishes me to announce that the hour plans 
are due next Friday. Now, when you 
study, don't stick your feet up higher than 
your head. That will be all today." 



O! It's great to get up in the morning 
When the temperature's four below. 

And your underclothes feel like an iceberg 
That's been out over night in the snow. 

O ! It's great to get up in the morning 
When the chapel clock strikes seven 

And run all the way to Stockbridge Hall, 
And back home again at eleven. 

O! It's great to get up in the morning 
When you were out the night before. 

And didn't get in till the crowing 
Of the rooster just next door . 

O! It's great to get up in the morning 
When you've classes all day long 

And you haven't time for breakfast 
And your cuts have long been gone. 

O! yes, we all enjoy it 

Without a doubt we do, 

But if we could make out our schedules 

We wouldn't have classes till noon. 



Prof. Jones (in agronomy) — Farring- 
ton! are you asleep? 
Farrington — Nope. 
Prof. — Well, then, don't look that way. 



Why did you give up smoking? 
I chews to reform. 



NOAH'S ARK UP TO DATE 
King Wilhelm built a ship of state 
Like a good old Prussian soul ; 
He put his Germans on the deck and his 

family in the hold. 
And when he pushed off from the shore 
For his place in the sun, 
All Europe gathered on the bank and sang 

to the sun-of-a-gun, 

CHORUS: 

Go to then, go to then, 

Go to right now with your damned 

old frau. 
For you ain't going to reign anyhow, any- 
how. 
For you ain't going to reign anyhow ! 

Then Wilhelm fell upon his knees, 

And prayed that they might drown, 

But that God, with His almighty hand 

would save the German crown. 
Then Belgium fair and northern France 

were raped by his son and heir. 
And still came wafted on the breeze 
That same ungodly air, 



For three long years and many a day, 

The war was waged like , 

The dead men covered all in sight and 

they rotted where they fell. 
Then Wilhelm listening, all afraid, cried 

out as if in pain. 
As far across the sounding seas 
The Yanks took up the strain. 



-Douglas Tracy Nervbold, '19 



First Stude — That girl looks like Helen 
Green. 

Second Stude — She wouldn't look any 
different in another color. 



Hear about the fight in our room? 

No. 

The door swung on the hinges and the 
window came down with a slam.

what he heard: — 

"Well, brothers 
moment is at hand. 

task of so regulating the enrollment of this stud< 
body that the dormitories be not over-crowded. 
You all know that up to the present time the greater 
part of the Junior and Senior classes have been 
able to room in the dormitories. If this is to con- 
tinue it is up to us to eradicate a goodly part of 
this Sophomore class of 1919, and in this work I 
see great possibilities. In view of the fact that 
about 30 per cent of the class will drop out vol- 
untarily, it will only be necessary to conspire 
against a half dozen or so. My plan is to pick, 
at this time, those who are to be eliminated, and 
for all of us to attack them simultaneously. The 
scheme is sure to work, for if any one of us fails 
to "get" our men, the rest of us will land them at 
some time during the year." 

"In glancing over the Sophomore class registra- 
tion, I find there is only one man whose name be- 
gins with "A." He should be allowed to remain 
for completeness' sake if for no other reason. Now 
we come to the "B's." Let's see, one of those 
Bayers could be dispensed with, I suppose, but 
we'll let them alone for the present." 

"Ha!! Here are our first victims! Beadle 
and Bigelorv— Beadle is deuced hard on one's 
nerves, anyway, and Bigelow has a brother in the 
freshman class. We want to guard against family 
reunions, do we not?" (Murmurs of approval.) 
"Hmm,— C. D. Blanchard: he's a good-natured 
cuss, and what's more, he wants to leave to go to 



let him stay, although he is 
annoying when he goes to sleep during a lecture. 

"Sylvia B. Brigham— Women on the campus 
are at a premium, so we'll not send her away. Be- 
sides, she'll be good company for Skinner, Here's 
Buffum — he's pretty fresh — but so very young and 
small that it would be a shame to send him home. 
What about this man Carpenter from Somerville? 
He's a runner, isn't he? A valuable man; prob- 
ably he will run for some high office some day, 
and might help the college." 

"Ah! W. R. Cone— His very name is too 
pointed, 1 fancy him not! He is a marked man 
from this day henceforth. I'd like to get Day, but 
I guess there's no chance — he's too clever. Bena 
C. Erhardl—ii we send her away we will also 
lose one of the best trombone players this side of 
Norwottuck. Here's another co-ed— £lrie/ Lovetl 
Harris. She's all right; I like her middle name, 
too. We better put a question mark after Hunter's 
name; don't know enough about him yet." 

"Allan Cites Kennedy! Got a brother in the 
Junior class, hasn't he? And if I remember 
rightly, he gave me a soup bath down at the Co- 
lumbia Cafe one day last year. Get him, breth- 
ren, get him! Frank £• Knight, huh, let him 
alone and he'll die a natural death. Andrea L. 
Martin — another member of the waiters' union. 
Don't like his face— out with him! R-R-Ralner— 
has a rodential sound, hasn't it? I'll give him till 
the end of this college year. Whew! S-c-h-e-n- 
k-e-l-berger—Let him alone!! He has enough 
trouble as it is with a name like that." 

"Here's a difficult proposition, men. Everett 
Hamilton Slfinner — I know for sure that he makes 
fun of me behind my back, but I can't catch him 
at it. He won't pass my course this fall, though, 
I'll swear to that." 

"I see we have quite a few "W's" here. Let's 
strike out Wheeler and While. Can't get White, 
though, I'm afraid. He never even chews gum in 
his classes. Moreover, Providence has sent him 
here, and far be it from me to interfere with the 
designs of the powers that be. Yesair stays for the 
same reason that Alden does." 

"And that gives us our quota. Gentlemen, let us 
adjourn until the week before finals." 



ENGLISH LECTURE 
Burns was one of the greatest writers of his day 
— by the way, all hour plans must be in the Dean's 
office by Friday or the cutting privilege of the de- 
linquent students will be revoked — his sonnets are 
word pictures — oh yes, and the sonnets must be in 
by Thanksgiving, no further allowance of time will 
be given — his love lyrics have not been equaled 
in the English language — I might say that a prize 
is to be given for the best essay on modern writers. 



Kid Gore, throwing some once white stockll 
gainst the ceiling — "Those are clean, they do 
ick." 



If at first you don't succeed 

Give it up! 
For you to work there is no need 

Give it up! 
Dad will feed you like a steer 
Ma will keep her weakling dear 
They'll support you never fear 

Give it up! 
But remember if you do 
You'll surrender all that's true 
And become like vagrants who 

Give it up! 



Doc. Gordon — "How can a bird see all

Bright Stude — "Your nose." 



Prof. Patterson lecturing about his favor-

"His narrative is highly wrought." 
Co-ed taking notes: 
"Narrative highly rot." 



Prof. Hart — illustrating a point in a 
lecture by means of a story about how beav- 
ers do construction work in streams: 

"The young beaver puts the bar in the 
wrong way ; the old beaver, noticing the 
mistake, turns the stick around and cuffs the 
young beaver on the head. You see the old 
beaver had learned to "dam" properly. 



In Supervision Special — Prof. Thomp- 
son illustrating different varieties of 
squashes: 

"I haven't a very good shaped marble- 
head." 



Prof. Jones, telling Asa White to pick 
up the book he has just thrown: 

"Mr. Green, pick that book up." No 
answer. 

"Mr. Green, pick that book up." 

Asa White — "You must be color blind, 
I'm not Green, I'm White." 



PICKING A MAJOR 
The freshman at home has heard of the 
county agents. He determines he will elect 
Agricultural Economics and become a real 
county agent. He hasn't been on the cam- 
pus more than a few months before he has 
heard juniors and seniors swearing about 
the work they have to do in the course. 
He immediately decides that Aggie Ec. 
isn't in his line. He next thinks of Ento- 
mology. He is going to take graduate work 
and get a government position. He finds 
zoology is a prerequisite and after taking 
one of Doc Gordon's courses, Entomology 
no longer has any fascination. He comes 
next to Botany and he is all imbued with 
the desire to become a great pathologist. 
After vainly peering thru a microscope at 
plant cells for a couple of weeks he decides 
Botany is out of his line. Agronomy now 
meets his eye. He seen finds that he must 
spend too much time in the laboratory for 
his liking so he turns that down. He now 
determines to become a great chemist, but 
after endeavoring to learn some of Doc. 
Peters' formulas he gives up in disgust. In 
desperation he decides to elect General Ag- 
riculture for he has heard that it is a com- 
bination of the easiest parts of all the 
courses. However, he soon finds out dif- 
ferently and as a final resort takes Pomol- 
ogy and for the rest of his college course 
takes life easy. 



Chem. Prof. — "What would you do if 
a person should accidentally take some hy- 
drocianic acid?" 

Student — "I would give him some hydro- 
gen peroxide which would form an oxa- 
mide." 

Voice in back of room — "Then give him 
some mercuric chloride and it would form a 
corpse." 



Freshman in Alge':ra — "What good 
does it do us to study square and cube 
roots? 

Instructor — "Every farmer should know 
something about roots."

THE LAST PHYSICS CLASS 



Scene — Students shivering in the pews in 
the Physics Building. 

(Billy the all powerful enters exhaling 
the last whiff from his Bull Durham cig- 
arette.) 

Billy — Gentlemen, please come to order, 
one person in a seat is sufficient. There 
appears to be only half the class here today, 
guess the rest are beginning to get cold feet. 
I should think they would after the show- 
ing most of you made in the last quiz. It 
ain't going to do 'em any good to cut, for 
I'll stick 'em all, if they don't do their work. 
Some of you will try and cut when the 
Angel Gabriel blows his horn, but yer'll 
get caught in the end. Some of you say 
yer spendin' two hours on yer Physics each 
day. Yer must put the book under a pil- 
low and sit on it, by the showing you're 
making. Gentlemen, yer can't absorb phy- 
sics by osmosis. Will somebody wake up 
Blanchard? 

Red — I ain't asleep. I was just think- 
ing. 

Billy — Yer can't fool me. Go up to 

the board and prove that acceleration 

= , x . While you're chewing over 

that we'll see what the rest of you know. 

Peirson, what is the formula for force? 

Peirson — Don't know. It's patented 
by the Postum Cereal Co. 

Billy — Buffum, what do you know about 
friction? 



Buff — It burns when you slide on it. 

Billy — Field, describe buoyancy. 

Field — Buoyancy is a bob used to mark 
channels and hang lanterns on. 

Billy — Faxon, tell what yer can about 
Kepler's third law. 

P. Faxon — Kepler wrote two important 
laws in physics, each of which is used a 
great deal. After much experimenting he 
wrote a third law which has been univer- 
sally accepted, and which is known through- 
out the world of physics as Kepler's third 
law. 

Billy — Blanchard, rub it out and take 
yer seat. 

Red — There ain't nothing to rub out, 
but I'll be glad to sit down. 

Billy — Ross, how many of the exam- 
ples did you do? 

Dinny — I most finished the first one. 

Billy — What was the trouble? 

Dinny — I didn't know what formula to 
use. 

Billy — This recitation shows you know 
something about physics, so I am going to 
give you all a chance to raise your marks. 
If yer'll meet me in Doc Gordon's Zoo 
lab tomorrow morning, I'll give yer some- 
thing to keep you busy, and see to it yer 
pass this exam or yer'll all be buying one 
way tickets at the end of the term. That'll 
do, gentlemen !

An Appreciation 



It seems very fitting that at this time we should express our most sincere appreciation 
to the various friends around campus who so kindly helped to make this book a success. 
Dean Lewis, who wrote the very inspiring dedication, deserves special mention. Professor 
Hasbrouck and Mr. Watts have aided us a great deal by checking up class lists and loan- 
ing pictures of campus scenery. Ralph T. Howe, who did the typewriting for practically 
the whole book, should also be given his share of the credit. To all others who have in 
any way assisted in making this "War Index" a book containing quality if not quantity, 
we wish to extend our thanks.
