Knowing as we do that it will be critically examined by all, it is with some trepidation that we undertake the task. Hoping that we may attain the usual standard of excellence, we proceed with our compilation, and with what success, you, reader, be the judge. As in the Editorial is generally found a brief summary of the preceding year, we will not depart from the usual custom. The past year has been one of experiment, as, our Presi- dent being in Japan, we were without an administrative head. But, though we have suffered by this absence, we feel that we have, in a great measure, a recompense in the work performed by, and the honors bestowed upon him. His superior char- acter and abilities, being thus acknowledged and appreciated by the world, have raised the renown of the M. A. C. to a position it never before held in the estimation of the public. Knowing as we do that our President is our best friend and protector, it afforded us the greatest pleasure and satisfaction to see once more his countenance, and feel his quickening powers. THE INDEX. With characteristic energy and regard for our interests, one of his first acts was the grading of the campus, making an almost perfect ball ground, of which we have always stood in greiat need. The impetus thus given to the " national sport " has had its effect, as we have entered with renewed vigor upon the fall games. By the generous aid of the Faculty, and a college subscription, we have provided our nine with an elegant uniform,, trimmed with the college colors. Believing that its name should refer in some way to our Alma Mater, it has been changed from " Wilder, " to that of Aggie. Having for some time been a department in the young and flourishing Boston University, we were invited, during the year, to represent our college in the Beacon, a paper publish- ed by the students of that institution. Such a rare opportu- nity for extending the welfare of the college, was at once accepted. It is but justice to the former editor to state that his articles expressed our feelings and interests in a manner satisfactory to all. Every year, the influence of our college increases; for, as the Alumni assume the duties of active life, the great benefits they have derived from their course of study are set forth in a manner so forcible as to resist the best arguments of the opposition. Every year, the facilities for applying science to agriculture and the mechanic arts are increasing, and with our enterprising corps of pr ofessors, we are fnlly up to the times. The various departments have been actively engaged in practical experiments, and in improving their facilities for instruction. In the horticultural department, thanks to the munificence of one of our patrons, and the energy and ability of its manager, extensive improvements are being made. The experiments carried on by this depart- ment, especially those under the direction of our professor of chemistry, have been of much interest to the whole college. THE INDEX. The military department has lost none of its interest durins the past year. In fact, our young and enthjisiastic command- ant has steadily advanced the cause of this science. We students feel that he has discharged his duties in a manner satisfactory to the college and the public. Of the many works that will always serve to keep his name fresh in the memory of the college, none are of greater moment than the erection of the centennial battery, which adds much to the picturesqueness of the grounds and the " ■ esprit du corps " of the college. He has greatly increased our security, and sup- plied a deficiency, by constructing a magazine, in which our store of explosives is now kept. Military science being carried to such an extent, we have long needed an undress uniform. And here again our inde- fatigable lieutenant has come to our aid, with a neat and appropriate blouse, which we have gladly accepted. Another noteworthy event, which we cannot pass by in silence, is our going into encampment at Mt. Toby. And a most agreeable change from college life we found it. Nothing but the weather was a drawback, and even that had little effect upon us. It is the universal opinion of the college that it was an eminent success, and that it reflects great credit upon its originator. The experiences at Camp Wm. Knowl- ton, will be remembered with pleasure by all. We hope that this will, as is intended, become a permanent feature of life at the M. A. C. While we are proud to have such a perfect soldier for our instructor, we look forward with sadness to the date at which he may leave us. Though military etiquette may prohibit his reappointment, we earnestly hope that his terra of oflEice will be prolonged at least one year more. As the class of ' 79 entered the year that he was detailed, such an THE INDEX. extension of office would give him time to fully carry out with one class the method of instruction that he has intro- duced. We have intended to set forth our own ideas of the work- ings of the college. If, in the expression of our thoughts, too much freedom has been taken, we humbly beg the pardon of those offended, as nothing detrimental to any one has been intended. To lower-classmen it is hardly necessary to repeat the yearly advice, " Don ' t fail to publish the Index, " for as every class has thus far published it, it has become a fixture in the college course. And now, as we draw towards the close of our Editorial, we regret being obliged to leave these pages, that have been to us both a pleasure and a profit. Whatever has a beginning, has an end; and bidding farewell, as editors, we retire. E will omit the trite information usually given in writ- T ings of this nature, which is that, " another year has passed away, " " the earth has again completed an annual circuit about the sun, " and other similar astronomical truths, expressed in language more highly poetical than the above. Our readers are undoubtedly tolerably well aware ot facts such as these. And, too, need we inform you that we are seniors? Who does not know it ? Who does not observe the easy-sitting dignity, the consciousness of the superiority brought about by a three years ' experience of college life, the studious sedateness of our manners, and the hirsute pre- cursors of a fast coming manhood? Ah yes, the truth can but be apparent to everyone, and yet we ourselves have almost to be forced to the realization of our changed position and responsibilities. We have been metamorphosed in two re- spects, in our outward life and in our inward life. The outward change came naturally, gradually, unconsciously ; it is the inward transformation to the conception of which we are obliged to educate ourselves, and in order to live in accordance with which we are compelled to train our thoughts and to modify our actions. May we successfully strive to be the leaders and mentors of the college in all its workings, to guide it rightly to the full attainment of its own highest good, with honor to ourselves and our class. What encour- agement does our past history give to aid us in the work? Does not the record of our deeds give assurance that, if we are true to ourselves, we cannot fail ? We feel that it does. But shall we rest conceitedly upon the glory of our previous achievements? Let us rather continue onward and upward, until, at the end, complete satisfaction with ourselves, and 12 THE INDEX, the well-earned praise of our fellows, make us feel our laurels to be no unmeaning baubles, but fit testimonials to the genius, truthfulness, industry and worth of ' 78. It is not without deep sadness that we realize how brief is the remnant of our college days The thought that we, who have dwelt together so long in unity, bound by the ties of friendship, of common interest and of mutual respect, — that we, who have passed together through all the vicissitudes of the three years past, experiencing all the joys and the sorrows, the successes and the failures which they brought with them, and have come out strengthened and better prepared for the future, — should now so soon be parted, strikes deep into our hearts, and tempers with sorrow the pleasures we now enjoy. Compared with the number that started with us as Freshmen we are few; yet the spirit of the class has never weakened, but has become purer and more elevated, and, illuminated by the radiance of the monuments we have reared, our path seems bright before us. Yet, across the way, float at intervals the clouds of doubt and mystery. Classmates! straining the eye to look beyond those clouds, what is the bright vision that meets our sight.? A noble pine-tree rears its head to heaven. Beneath its shade, a band of gray-haired men, assembling from all sides, meet and clasp one another ' s hands in joyous greeting. Can you not read its meaning.? ' Tis a cheering prophecy; may it be fully consummated . ' The readers of the Index have doubtless noticed that, con- trary to the usual custom, no motto, no elevated principle of life, heads the roll of our class. Have we then no noble aim?, no lofty desires, no great ideal to imitate.? Look once more. What is there above our names that stands alone, shining by its own unaided light.? The simple symbol, ' 78. That is our motto, our guidon, our all in all. For that we stand. We have worked for it in the past; we will do the same in the future. Its glory is our glory, its disgrace is our disgrace. For it and Alma Mater let us devote our best energies, and our reward will come with our success. c. c S we resume our college duties we are forcibly reminded of the passage, " swiftly rolls the tide of time. " It is our Junior year. The so-called year of ease, which, however, opens with a term requiring more labor than any through which we have yet passed. Always irregular in numbers, we have, within the past year, gained two. The present term brings with it one of our old classmates, who, for the past twelve months, has been engaged in practical agriculture. We welcome, also, a for- mer member of the class of ' 75, whose desire for Dutch and Physics is so strong, that, after an absence of four years, he has returned to complete his college course. It is with the deepest sorrow that we are obliged to record the loss ot three of our members, one of whom an all-wise Providence has seen fit to remove from among us, giving us another illustra- tion of the uncertainty and frailty of this life. As we look back upon the first half of our course, we feel compelled to remonstrate against an evil that has become so prevalent as to rarely cause remark. We refer to the practice of getting through the college course in three years, which, in our own class, has spread to such an extent that fully one- fourth of our number have undertaken its accomplishment. It will be seen by a moment ' s reflection, that there is a radical defect somewhere, and we earnestly desire the Faculty to take the matter into consideration, not only on account of the utter impossibility of the student gaining as complete an ed- ucation, but also because of the very demoralizing effect upon the class and, in fact, the whole college. 14 THE INDEX. It afforded us much pleasure upon our return, to find that the final effort of our Sophomore year was still visible upon the hillside; and we are confident that however much the cares of life may in the future press upon us, ' 79 will always cling in affectionate remembrance to her old Alma Mater. But two short years remain ere we step into the arena of active life. Let us make the most of them. We will " do what we do, and do what we do well. " (s sss SSSsTES s E have spent one year of college life very pleasantly, W and, we think, profitably, and are now called upon to communicate to the Index as Sophomores. Our class now numbers fourteen, having lost six men dur- ing the year. While we regret that they are not with us, we wish them success in whatever they undertake. We have adopted the old custom of the college in getting class pins, as we consider them to be the best class emblem we could have. We are glad to see that so large a class has come in to fill our places, although we had wished for a still larger one. They seemed to have been trained well at home and, there- fore, we did not have to change their hour of retiring. We are glad to see that this important principle was instilled into their youthful minds before they left their mammas. In the " rush, " our courage was first-class, and so was our mus- cle, too ; but what could be expected when we were complete- ly outnumbered . ' ' We have introduced a new custom, that of letting the Freshmen carry canes. It worked to a charm, for in a few days we saw a big cord-wood stick dragging a poor, helpless " Freshie " after it. Some of these sticks have mysteriously walked off, never again to be seen by their owners in that lengthy state. We note with pleasure the interest taken in military affairs, as we believe this department to be as important as any other in the institution. THE INDEX. We see no reason why we should not progress rapidly under such an able corps of Professors, at whose head is our beloved President, just returned from his college in Japan. For our own part, we are well pleased with our experiences so far at the M A. C. , and in the future years may we be able to say that we do not regret having entered with the class of ' 80. F. .ALUABLE INDEX:— Last, though not least, ' 8i pre- sents her small contribution. Our experiences are limited, as our time here has been short. Yet the foretaste of college life is an agreeable one. Among the interesting impressions and events, are those pertaining to the upper-classmen, who seem to regard us Freshmen as so much raw material to be worked over at will. The Seniors are evidently trying to give us the impression that they have absorbed all the advantages of the college; consequently, are puffed up with pride and self-assurance. They " strut and fret their brief hour " with martial, but unnatural, dignity, as they endeavor to inspire us with their sublime gra ndeur. Seniors, we would modestly suggest moderation and sim- plicity, since the one lends grace, and the other beauty, of manners. The Juniors are more considerate, and seem not to forget that they were once Freshmen. Having instructed and assisted us in some of the arts of college life, we appreciate their kindness. The Sophs., at first opposed, now quietly concede to us the rights of students. Not, however, without an attempt to bring us into submission. This attempt was in the customary rush. Twice were they beaten, and so completely that they have since entertained for us a profound respect. We began the te m with nineteen members, and have since increased to twenty five. Enough to create and continue the best of class feeling and mutual good will. THE INDEX. Our connection with the college and professors is an ex- ceedingly pleasant one. Our course of instruction is highly appreciated, since we realize the practicability of the same. Military duty is generally enjoyed, and with a " few cor- rections, " we promise well Class work has its physical, as well as practical, advantages. All in all considered, we greatly enjoy our beginning. But, classmates, let us not forget the real object of our course; realizing that object, let us strive to attain the highest perfection in it, for upon the present our success in the future depends. The foundations well laid, the superstructure will be easy. If we have any vices, let us abandon them — now, that our characters, as well as our minds, may be improved; for in abandoning vices, we embrace virtues. Let us by our conduct show that we fully understand the scriptural warning, " As we sow, so shall we reap. " MuU ' . JI MmMukii Bodk €, 1877-1878. So ard of Sr uMmL MEMBERS EX-0FFIGII8.

The Editors have been to much trouble to obtain the facts (as far as possible) of our college history. There being no record kept of the incidents of social life, the earlier years of this history are comparatively barren oi " those items, that make life to the student so enjoyable. Some such history as this is the only manner of preserving such incidents. We would respectfully ask the Alumni to help us complete this work. Leaving it to the good sense ot the next class to continue it, which will be but little labor for them. Thanking all who have aided us, and hoping that in the future numbers of the Index this department will become a permanent one, we submit to you the results of our labor. 1 sea. July 2nd An Act " donating public lands to the several states and territories, which may provide colleges for the benefit of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts, together with Military Science, " passed Congress and was signed by Pres- ident Lincoln. 1 S63.

For Botanical and Entomological Pufposes. Early in the term, it was rumored that the entire college was to go into encampment; but as week after week slipped by, and still no official mention was made of it, our faith in (Hir ever trying the vicissitudes of camp life began to decline. But all this time our military instructor was not idle. Detail after detail was investigated, and, after every arrangement was made, we were duly informed that the mythical expedi- tion was really to take place. So at five o ' clock in the morning of October i8th, the long expected signal gun was fired. The day had really come, and we arose in jubilant spirits, that even the terrors of a cold bath could not quail. It was a clear, bracing autumn morning, without a cloud to be seen. Throughout the col- lege intense activity prevailed ; and it greatly increased our faith in a " good time coming, " to see the thorough prepara- tions in the commissary department. The morning program was carried out without an error. Never was the esprit du (ft ' j- more strongly felt ; it was with honest pride at being Aggies that we marched through " Amherst town, " Our passage on the train was enlightened by many an old college song. Soon Mt. Toby was reached, and at the tap of the drum we fell into line at Camp Wm. Knowlton. The new guard went on duty immediately; the various squads were detailed; and after forming the color line, the battalion broke ranks. Then came the tramp over the mountain. It was with the deepest interest that we wandered over the rough, weather- beaten rocks of old Toby. All nature was in its glory; the 64 THE INDEX. clear sky, the cool air, and the varied colors of the ripening leaves, all tended to heighten the beauty of the scenery. Those of us who completed tiie ascent were well repaid for our toil by the vast expanse of country stretched out before us. Below us the silvery Connecticut placidly meandered through the meadows. Beyond their fertile expanse, freight- ed with the fruits of a prosperous year, rose the Berkshire hills, while to the south, Mt. Tom and the Holyoke range raised their heads, as if to contend with Toby the title ot " monarch of the valley. " But even this beautiful landscape could not charm us against the callings of nature; and with voracious appetites we returned to camp, where we were soon seated before a comfortable meal. The preparations for the night were next made. Straw was placed over the floor of the depot, that served us as barracks, to the depth of several inches. Then came guard mounting. The sky had gradually become over- cast, and now the moon arose, shining through this fleecy shroud with a pale weird light. Before the guard tent, which had been decorated with pine boughs, a fire was smoldering. Soon tattoo and taps were sounded, and all lights were out. All not on duty were in their blankets, and supposed to be asleep; but the novelty of the situation, and the excitement of the day, made this supposition, in many cases, a fallacy. Outside, the steady tramp of the sentinel was heard. Just as a general quiet would settle upon the encampment, and we would be faltering upon the border of dreamland, the sharp cry, " Corporal of the guard! " would once more bring us back to wakefulness. And then we would listen to the musi- cal call, " All ' s well, " sound from post to post. But finally weariness conquered most of us, and the whole encampment was wrapped in slumber. The next day, in spite of the dampness, we were inspected by President Clark and Professor Packard. Mr. Lovell also paid us a visit, and took several views ot the camp. The day passed agreeably to all. At night, thanks to the enterprise of several ' 80 men, music was provided, and our barracks were temporarily turned into a dancing hall. Outside there was considerable excitement, as many were trying to run the guard, though but few succeeded. Owing to the inclemency of the weather, picket duty, and signaling from the summit THE INDEX. 65 of the mountain, which had been planned for the evening, had to be given up. However, a brilliant display of fireworks was given at the camp. Our second night was passed with much more quietness, as nearly all of us were fatigued. Saturday brought with it a pouring rain, which confined us in-doors But still we had a pleasant time; much interest was created in the mock drill conducted by McKenna, of ' 8i, and in the " drilling down, " in which C S. Howe, of the Senior class, won the prize, a copy of Tactics, given by the commandant. The weather prevented our marching home, as was the original intention. With three cheers for Camp Wm. Knowlton, and three for our commandant, we broke camp and took the train for Am- herst, much pleased with our experience Jllnm JlitdH. THE PAST. Being called upon to contribute an article for the Index of ' 79, we are led to note some of the events which happened during the course of some of the earlier classes of the college. And first, some of the strifes between the classes of ' 71 and ' 72, when there were no Seniors nor Juniors to support and direct the Sophomores and Freshmen ; how, on a certain occasion, when the Freshmen were forbidden to carry canes, one or two, more courageous than the rest, walked to the village with their delicate walking sticks, and there being met by the valiant Sophomores, a fight ensued amid noise and clamor that might be heard for miles away. Both sides claimed the victory, but certain it was, one of the Sophs, was carried to his room badly disabled. Many rushes occurred between the classes passing to and from the Botanic Museum, on the rustic bridge, long to be remembered, which, not being wide enough to hold the rap- idly increasing masses, broke and spilled Sophomores and Freshmen over its sides. Tree-planting and improvement davs will long be remem- bered, when each class endeavored to get as much time allowed for this work as they could, and, when granted, do as little work and have as good a time as possible. ' 71 planted the elms around the plot in front of South Col- lege, which, having been watered with cider, have grown finely; ' 72, the elms from the plot along the sides of the road to the bridge; ' 73, the lindens in front of the Chapel; ' 74, along the road south of the bridge; and each succeeding class has left some memento of their interest in the improve- ment of the college grounds. Many and eventful were the midnight scenes which we THE INDEX. 67 recall, as when, mysterioiasly, during the night, the farm sleds took themselves to the Chapel, and were packed care- fully upon the platform, while to one of the iron pillars was tied the lonely donkey ; and when, the morning after the great mowing machine trial, the prize machine was found attached to a pair of airy steeds, with the driver in efiflgy, and the leather and tin medals suspended from the cultivator, while the patent clothes-reel of that enterprising bookstore man was set up in the center of the ball ground, with all the tin-ware, that could be found, hanging upon the lines. The Deacon ' s buggy was stolen, one night, and was found at the bottom of the ravine, but no one knew " Who stole the buggy ? " Rebellions have been many, but the most prominent was that of ' 71, when, having reached the dignity of Seniors, they refused to work at class work ; and that of ' 78. In both in- stances, the outbreak was quelled and the students promised to obey. These rambling notes furnish examples familiar to every student in college, and, while looking upon them from the outside, they appear foolish and unreasonable, and even, in some cases, as relics of the barbaric age, yet during our college life, the temptation was very great to get up some- thing to enliven the dull routine of study, and while we be- lieve in harmless sports, we should urge upon all who enjoy the advantages offered by our Alma Mater, not to carry it so far as to bring disgrace upon her.

And still again some go to Hamp., Through Hadley Meadows chill and damp; These are they — the Faculty say — Who have their " Regular nights " away. He has so lately enamored our Faculty, no wonder Cupid is playing pranks with 7ts. A few days since, as we were looking over some ancient manuscripts, we came across the following story of a " Gudely Knyght, " which we thought might interest the readers of the Index. YE DOYNGES OF A GUDELY KNYGHTE. For that dyverse Folks myghte u.ndirstond ye things that this Knyght dyde, wee speke off itt. He com fro a fahr contree with a grete coinpanye to a grete Mannes Casyle, in the Yeer off our Lord Jesu Crist MDCCCLXXXVII. Ande ye Pepyle sayd dyverse strrynge words monye tymes, lyke " als wells! whyche he sayde wasse ye countre syne. Then rejoyted he moche at commyn to that Playce, so that he acked most onmannrely. Then tucken thei hym with alle hys Amies and putten hem up beforn ye grete Hous, ne nerye letten him styrre Hond ne Fute.

Wen he com to ye Wendoi and was sekyn fo to getten ene, a gret Flud of Watre fallen ontc hym fro aboven, so that he was Vv ' etten moch. Then cursyde he excedyn gretly.

From that overflowing stream Of youth. ' Tis to-day, — while we are strong, Best to battle with the wrong; May each Junior join the song For truth. On the hill, among the pines, Are some arithmetic signs, Which to each so oft reminds Of 19- Boys, — that year is drawing near, When each friendship then so dear. And the pleasures we have here Must decline. Half our class are now away. Some at work and some at play. So our number is to-day, But eleven. To this merry, lingering few, Two have bid their last adieu; But may we their love renew In heaven. While we are yet in college, Growing in worldly knowledge. There ' s not one who can presage Our future. One can see, if sense he ' s got. By the way we flunk and cut, That our hereafter is not Secure. And when all our crowns are white, From old age ' s giddy height, With our fading, feeble sight, Look down and see.
