INDEX. 47 Alumni took hold of the matter in 1883, appointinj;- a committee to solicit funds and purchase books. On tlie accession of President Greenough. an appeal to the legislature was made for suitable accommodations, resulting in the erection of the present building. Pending its completion, the library was moved to the reading-room in North College, thoroughly examined, classified, and catalogued. |t was found then to contain 2.471 volumes. Leander Wetherell of Boston, presented 1,410 bound volumes, the societies gave what they had accumulated, and the generous subscriptions of Alumni permitted large purchases of new books. Tlie stimulus given to reading by providing fresh, interesting material in each department, was as marked as it was gratifying. The part taken by the Alumni is particularly worthy of mention. They subscribed $3,137.60. Of this amount in round numbers, $700.00 has been added to the permanent fund of the library. $1,900.00 has been expended in the purchase of 1,547 books, and the remainder has not yet been collected. For the future maintenance of the library, a perma- nent fund has been started, now amounting " to $4,721.36. The hbrary to-dav numbers 6.334 volumes, distributed as follows : Philosophy, . • 63 The Useful Arts, . 2,780 Theology, . 158 The Fine Arts, 37 Sociology, 760 Literature, 276 Philology, 100 History, .... 607 The Natural Sciences, . ■ 1:553 Total, .... 6,334 As might be expected, the department of horticulture (including botany) and agriculture are best supplied, the former numbering 1,000 volumes, the latter 1,411. This, however, does not represent as large an amount of material as would be supposed, man}- of the works being in sets of twenty or thirty volumes, thus agriculture with its 1,411 volumes, numbers but 454 distinct titles. The libraries of literature and history are especially deficient, and the empty shelves in the departments of zoology, chemistry, and geology, are a standing appeal to some warm hearted alumnus to loosen the strings of his purse and " transmute the sordid gold into the heaven-born thoughts of men.

INDEX. 4 9 M ' s for the " marks " of the Juniors, quite low, But then we don ' t crib as some do, you know ? Nis for North, sometimes called Mark, Who often goes over to " Hamp. " after dark. Ois the object certain Sophs, had in view, When they smoked out West Entry, and fired it, too. Pis for Pond, perhaps not cunning or silly, Yet he runs class elections and votes just for " Billy. " Q ' s the quiet in Chapel when sermons are deep, As , for instance. Prof. Walker ' s, when all go to sleep, R stands for Rhetoric, to its refuge we ' d fly. Should the world be submerged, for it still would be dry. S stands for Sellew, whose immense stores of knowledge, He dispenses free gratis to each one in College. Tis the thing called, in ' 89, Miles, Who always appears with his face wreathed in smiles. Uis useless, unusual, undramatical, Unnatural, ungrammatical, unmathematicak Vis the vineyard upon the hill. Towards which the stealthy student wends his weary way, while the whistling winds wail thro ' his whiskers. WJ is Woodbury, who, on dark nights, takes a lantern, To. show off his shape, which looms up like a phantom. stands for something that as yet we can ' t find. For try as we will we can ' t bring it to mind. is our youth, which is fast passing by. As its years roll along to improve them let ' s try. is for Zanzibar, an isle far away, We wish certain books were sent there to stay. we hope that on reading it all will incline. To declare this book worthy the class ' 89.
