in college sports is hardly kept up. The foot and base ball I teams have not participated in any match games this season, I while the rifle club has seemingly forgotten its former popu- 1 larity. Bicycling, however, has become almost a mania, and I we trust the interest will not lessen until the crowning point is reached. Several prizes have already been given at the recent fairs in favor of the college, and we hope the time will soon come when the heroes of Ingleside may envy the laurels won by the Aggie wheel club. We are sorry to state that one of the editors, Mr. Kinney, was prostrated by sickness soon after his election, conse- quently was unable to perform his part of the work, and many of the imperfections of the present issue are doubtless IJ due to his absence. [ ' We now send forth the Index with an earnest hope that I those following us will endeavor to raise its standard and i further its interests Of its merits say little: its defects over- i look. Some of the cuts illustrate the varied scenes of college I I life, while others show the flight of imagination. Some may I find themselves portrayed in a style ' • unique in itself, " but it is done with the kindest feelings toward all and disrespect to none. And to you, classmates, who have stood by us in our efforts, we sincerely hope the Index of ' 82 will be a memento worth keeping; that in after years it may serve to recall I pleasant experiences and happy associations formed at M. A. C. 12

I of chemistry, wide experience, and implicit confidence which scientific men place in his decisions, amply fit him for such a position. The common people need to become better acquainted with natural laws, and the State should appropri- ate a sum sufficient to defray the expenses of such a depart- ment, in order that the community at large may have the benefit of experimental knowledge. We hope the day is not far distant when the name Agricultural College will be asso- [ ' ciated with that of an experimental station. | The military ' department, under the command of Lt. Morris, is a success. While some few have manifested signs ol dis- satisfaction from the first, the majority of cadets deem him a competent instructor, and have ever found him friendly and obliging. It is expected that the close of the present year will terminate his stay at M. A. C. We can only wish him success, and hope that in the future his efforts may be appre- a ciated by others as they have certainly be„en by the corps of cadets. We are glad to see Prof. Goodell in his accustomed place. At one time it was thought that his health would not per- mit him to attend to his duties. His many friends at Amherst very much desired that he should leave New England and spend a year in the West ; so much so did they deem it nec- cessary, that several professors at Amherst College volunta- rily offered to do his work and allow Prof. Goodell his whole salary during his absence. During the summer the Profes- sor made his home in the Adirondacks, returning with a sun- burned face and an apparent healthy look, but far from being restored to perfect health. While we dislike very much to lose for a season the instruction of so valuable a teachei " , we would not be so entirely given to selfishness as to induce him to stay a moment at M. A. C. if there is the least danger of greater impairment of his health, but most willingly would bid him go. Owing to the pressure of work, the interest formerly taken 11
