- i iiOTi iMijI ' (Herewith Ave present to you the fourteenth volume of the Index. It has been our aim, in its compilation, to be as accurate as possible, with what result, reader, we leave to you. Our work has been pleasant ; still, we are not anxious to serve on next year ' s board ; and, although small in numbers, we have not at any time been discouraged in its preparation. As the purport of the Index has been stated in previous volumes, it is unnecessary to repeat it here. We have inserted a list of the recipients of the different prizes, since establishment, thinking it might be ' of interest to some. Since so many changes have been made in the curriculum the past year, too mimerous to mention here, it was thought best to publish it. There have been changes made in the Faculty during the past year. In losing President Stockbridge, we lost a practical agriculturist and a gentleman who thoroughly understood his profession. On leaving. President Stockbridge Avas presented with a gold-headed cane as a memento of our esteem. In Presi- dent Chadbourne we have a thorough scientist, who, from the present outlook, promises to place the College on a strong basis. We Avill, as students, give him our hearty cooperation. We regret the loss of Prof. Harrington from the chair of Physics, and Civil Engineering. Although associated with him but for the short space of a year, Ave learned fully to regard his worth as a gentleman and a scholar. Our best wishes go with him to his neAv field of labor. Though the chair of Agriculture has not jet been supplied, it has been filled very acceptably by J. W. Clark, ' 72. We Avelcome the new Professor of Mathematics, and Ave have . every reason to believe that he Avill make his department a suc- cess.

We take tlie liberty to suggest that this is not a military acad- emy, but an Agricultural College ; and in reference to the drill we can say that " too much of a good thing is too plenty. " The College has reason to congratulate itself in securing the services of Mr. Wentzell as market gardener. The crops under his care during the past year proved a success, notwithstanding the dry weather. Our farm, under the management of Mr. D. H. Tillson, is constantly improving. Leveling and draining have not only added to the fertility of the land, but have made it much more 13leasing to the eye. If this is not already a model farm, we have every reason to believe that the time is not far distant when it will stand second to none in New England. A much-needed change has been made in the terms. This term began August 31, a week later than usual ; next year it will begin a week later still. There will be a three days ' recess at Thanksgiving, and the term closes Tuesday before Christmas ; then a three weeks ' vacation. The remainder of the year is divided into two terms, with a short vacation in March, and commencement at the usual time. To have the farm looking its best, commencement should be a week later, which would bring it to June 27. We are sorry to see that the Senior Class takes so little inter- interest in athletics, as we consider it a necessary comp onent of college life ; but perhaps it is all that could be expected from such a lifeless class. We were disappointed in the number of Freshmen, but the interest they have already taken in college duties makes up to some extent their deficiency in numbers. We are pleased to hear of the appointment of Prof. Groessmann for Director of the experimental station, as it is known that no person is more capable of directing such a work than the Pro- fessor, We can say once more, but with more assurance, that the prospects of the College were never better than at the present time. With the new building, and with the promise of more buildings when needed, we feel Avarranted in saying that the success of the College is inevitable. And now that our work is done, we present it to you for your approval or condemnation. With many thanks to those who have aided us in any way, we gladly shake from our feet the dust of the sanctum, and welcome our successors from ' 85.
