THE INDEX As they gather in a crowd. Richy says, " Class meeting quickly. " There they talk, ' tis little good, For they cannot be decided On the thing they ' d better do. Out they come and then they scatter, O ' er the country far and near, Looking in the strangest places For the means to shoot this evening. Down the drains, and in the cornfield, In the swamp, and ' round the barn, Wander the heart-sickened Freshmen, As they try to find their gun. Farmer Wright, who knows their greenness, Gives them each a fork in hand, And down cellar quickly speed they Where they labor, but in vain. Thus the day is spent in looking For the guns they never found, And by evening they are tired, Both in body and in mind. Still they think that noise they must have, And they to the mortal ' s go; But again they are disheartened, For the noise their powder made Did not reach the ears of students Who near by in slumber lay. Thus the Freshmen ' s night was ended, And ' tis said by all around ' Twas the poorest ever held here, Thanks to ' 90 ' s skill so sound.

JO THE INDEX Now at last their labor ended As the dawn was coming fast. To their bedrooms they ascended And again all slumbered sound. Thus it was that ' 90 " got there, " And, with skill no craft could beat, Spoilt the " racket " of the Freshmen And returned in peace to sleep. PART III. Gleefully arose the Freshmen, Thought they then with great delight Of the way they ' d saved their cannon By the Juniors ' good advice. Soon they started out for breakfast, They must eat strong food to-day, For to-night ' s the celebration, And their strength must be kept up. As they walk along the campus Lo! they see one piece is gone, But of course the other ' s ready, Kept by two or three strong locks; Still they think they ' ll take a peep in Just to see how nice it looks. But one glance has made them shiver, For they see their cannon ' s gone. Consternation rises quickly, Where? How? When? What shall we do ? Are the questions that come pouring
