.00— hoo — boo — lioo — bah — Eighty-Six ! " This, reader, is our Class howl. We give this cry, because we know there is not another Class in College that has a yell anything like ours. It was got up to frighten the bold, bad Sophs., but they don ' t scare worth a cent. When we first came to College, our mas said we must not associate with naughty boys, but must be good ; so most of us are going to join the pi ' eying band. Our moral character is as unimpeachable as the Declaration of Independence and a Fourth- of-July picnic. We don ' t know what this means, but as a Senior said so it must be true. We don ' t smoke cigarettes, play penny ante, nor walk out with girls in the daytime that we have not been introduced to. We don ' t carry canes, either, as much as we did. We were all sick at first, and one fellow with big red eyes went home to see his ma, and has not come back yet ; probably College life didn ' t suit him. There is one little boy in our Class they call Spring Chicken ; we don ' t know why, unless it is because he has got a beak on him like a hen. ! we must tell you about Bill. He is a funny boy, Bill is. He has got a voice like a big bull frog. He beats the assembly, and is a good drummer. The Sophs, were awful mad because they didn ' t win the rush. One of them was so mad that he yelled out in a sarcastic way : 20

iiave. Althoug-li our year ' s work may appear small, yet we have certainly laid the foundation for future acquirements. As we look back over the past year, we may see many errors due to our inexperience. Let us profit by our observations, and strive to avoid such mistakes in the future. Our studies for the coming year promise to be even harder than usual. A few changes con- cerning them seem to meet with approval, as may be inferred from the fetu that avail themselves of the French optional ; also Chemistry, which has been transferred to the Sophomore year. It is probably supposed that we are better able to comprehend its secrets ; but even yet it is extremely hard for most of us to grasjD the ideas of our Professor. As so small a class has entered to fill the places of the late Seniors, greater action devolves upon us ; and never let it be said of us : " You are dull, and those sparks of life That should be in an Aggie, you do want. Or else you use not. " P. 19

" Why did the judge say he thought Eighty-Six won ? Why didn ' t he say they did won ? " We challenged the 8oj)hs. to a game of base ball, but they would not play us. Probably they have not forgotten about the rush. We gave them to under- stand that we were not to be fooled with, and we don ' t mean to be fooled with, either. Our relations with the Faculty have not been very pleasant, because when they look at us we are so frightened that we flunk right along. One Professor, called Johnnie, is the sternest, and scares us more than the rest, but we have been told that he is I not dangerous. I; Ours is a smart Class. We run a minstrel show, a base ball || nine, and intend to run things in general. I " Boo — hoo — boo — hoo — bah — Eighty-six. " 21
