At tlie beginning of the present term, another Freshman class unfurled its banner to the breeze, and recorded its name in the history of the college, as the class of ' 85. We welcome this class as it for the first time commences its labors among us. Its num- bers were not as large as we had wished, but certainly it is a great improvement on the one which preceded it. Class of ' 85, freshmen indeed you are, but four years of college train- ing are before you, and we trust that you will emblazon upon the walls of this, our college home, a name wliich you may always be able to look upon with feelings of pride and admiration. The chair of mental and moral science has for the last few years been abolished, owing to the lack of the necessary funds to sustain it. Of its value, yes, its necessity in our course of in- struction, no one will for a moment deny, and the editors hope the day is not far distant, when this will again be established. We trust that college sports will not be allowed to die out, for besides being of great value to ourselves, they are one of the things which make a college popular. And now fellow students, we place this work in your hands, trusting that you will not be too severe in your criticisms. That our work is imperfect we do not doubt : but remember as you turn its pages, that perfection is difficult to attain by mortal man. To the class who comes after us, and whose duty next it will be to take up the editorial pen, we would say, do not give up the Index, but strive to improve it, until it may attain even a wider popularity than at present. To you members of the class of ' 83, we your servants dedicate it, trusting that in the future it may serve to bring back to our minds, burdened with the cares of the world, pleasures which will make our pathway brighter, and may it serve to awaken within us, remembrances of one of the happiest periods of our life.
