ONORED Seniors, friendly Juniors, and motherly Sophomores, we, the Class of ' 84, greet you ! And are glad and proud to 3 ( have the opportunity of so doing, in this, our first communica- cation to the Index. That we are Freshmen we know ; yet we honor the name of ' 84 ! Our chief disappointment is our small number, but occasional additions are being received, and even now we can say that we are by no means the smallest class, though the youngest in years and college experience. The motherly reception which we met at the hands of the Class of ' 83, we highly appreciate. We do not fear the Senior or the Junior, though we respect them ; but if we do not fear the Sophomores, we think " discre- tion the better part of valor, " generally, in dealing with them. But some- times there are exceptions to this rule. So it was one evening as we were set upon by them by surprise, on our way back from town, their object being to snatch our canes. But their frantic efforts availed them naught, for the grasp of the Freshman defied them, and we carried our canes in triumph to the college, while the Sophomores slunk ofi to their rooms and were seen no more that night. 31

The next and more important event thus far in our course was the rush, when we were formed in solid phalanx by the friendly Juniors and by them instructed in the tug of war. Did we falter ? No ! But with set teeth and a determination to win or die, awaited the onset. At the word " Forward, " we started, slow but sure, as did our adversaries also. We met, there was a crash, and among mingled cheers for ' 83 and ' 84, we suc- ceeded in pushing back the Sophomores, breaking their ranks, and so gained the victory. But the term advances, and by the time this meets the reader ' s eye, we shall have completed the first portion of our Freshman year. Our relations with the Faculty have thus far been pleasant and agreeable ; the studies which were at first so hard for our untutored minds are gradually becom- ing easier, and our college days brighter and more pleasant. May they ever continue so to do. M. 83
