INDEX. ' OO IN accordance with the time-honored custom of Freshman historians we begin bj complimenting the editors of the " Index, " and deprecating our own contribution, pleading, as an excuse for its crudity, our ex- treme youth and inexperience. Our class has entered upon its course of studj strong in numbers. Two men have already signified their intention of graduating with ' 89, and are now reciting with that class. Nevertheless we have thirty-three re- maining, with prospects of additions to that number in the future. In athletics we have not been backward in coming forward. When we first came to " Aggie, " while yet we were strangers to one another, we de- feated the organized band of Sophomores in the annual cane-rush. While we conformed to the custom, we failed to recognize its utility. In the tug- of-war, too, our gallant team completely outpulled the crack wire-pullers of the Sophs. In the foot-ball game we were vanquished by the Sophomores, not be- cause they were heavier or more muscular than we, but rather on account of a slight superiority given them by the experience which a year of col- lege life gives. However, in our game with the high-school team, our eleven came out victorious by a handsome score. Rumors of " Owl Club " and hazing have so far proven rumors only. As for the epithets, " Fresh " and " green, " we have heard them only from the lips of Sophomores. Is not this fact significant.? As a class, ' 90 has been, hitherto, orderly and law-abiding, and the members have shown their determination to be distinguished as students, rather than as ruffians. As the crafty Ulysses and the youthful Telemachus were dependent in so great a degree upon Mentor, so the Freshmen are helped and advised by the Juniors. ' 88 has not been remiss in her duty to us, and to the class as a whole, and to the captain in particular, we owe much of the success which has .attended us.

INDEX. Classmates, we have just entered upon the first of our four years of college life. We are apt to think of four years, in anticipation, as a long time, but it will pass quickly, and as we look back upon it hereafter, we- shall Avonder at the rapidity with which it has gone. Let us, then, take ad- vantage of every opportunity which comes in our way, so that in future years we may have no occasion to look back with regret upon any misdeed,. or any time misspent, or any opportunity neglected. We have all made good resolutions for our college course. May we have the strength of purpose necessary for carrying out these resolutions. May we so improve our time while in college that when we graduate we may become honest men and useful citizens. G.
