A COMMON QUERY is, " Why do we not|hold a higher place in athletics among the col- leges of our section ? " In reply, it is said that it is simply because our students seldom have the training in this line that would be afforded by a course in a preparatory school. But too much emphasis should not be placed on this fact, and ambition to become the competitors and rivals of our present superiors should not be given up because of this unfavorable circumstance. I It has been our pleasure during the past term to witness an example of what faithful practice will do for a team. Last spring it was the wail of many that there would be no foot ball team this year. True, we suffered the loss of some valuable material in ' 91, but this obstacle was overcome, and under the captaincy of G. B. Willard, vigorous practice was carried on daily, with results proudly remembered by every Aggie. Now the base ball season is approaching, and, if each individual player will only deter- mine to do his best, the outcome will be more than pleasing. We are inclined to attach too little importance to the popularity that an institution acquires by sending out winning teams. Many men will naturally go to the college whose athletic teams are securing the most victories, or at least are making the greatest improvement. So, let spirit be put into our athletics as into all our duties. The college will always feel more like giving its financial support to a team if the members of that team are practicing hard and trying their level best to uphold the honor of Aggie on the campus. The Class Day exercises of the classes of ' 90 and ' 91 have proved conclusively that this feature of the Commencement programme, so long established in other colleges, may here be made a success, and that in the future we may enjoy, during each Commencement week, this pleasurable occasion, if the graduating class will only put forth their efforts in this direction. Favorable comments have been heard on all sides on last year ' s exer- cises, which fact speaks well for the future success of the Class Day. And now that it has become, as we trust, an established custom, it is to be ho Ded that each succeeding class will present a programme more elaborate and ' nteresting than that given by their predecessors. Thus one more source of plea, ure will be afforded to the students and their friends who gather here at Commencement time. When this book shall fall into the hands of one of the faculty, it will, without doubt, be their first object to glance hastily over its pages in search of comment on the unpleasant affair of a year ago last March. We have very little to say. While we feel that two of our classmates were unjustly treated at that time, yet we desire to let " bygones be bygones, " and we sincerely hope that nothing of the kind may again occur to mar, even temporarily, the usual good feeling between the faculty and students. 135

Sits of Advice for IFresKmeia. Never believe what the Faculty say. They may err in their judgment. Never subscribe more than twenty-five cents for foot ball or base ball. After passing a successful examination be sure and leave your cribs on the desk, as the Prof, may wish to correct them. Do not sweep your rooms oftener than once a term, as dust is dangerous to your health. When you are working for 12} cents per hour take care not to earn any more. If you don ' t know your lesson say so. It is folly to guess. Use the reading room for a gymnasium. It was made especially for that purpose. Don ' t try to raise a beard like Dwyer ' s. You can ' t do it. Keep out all the library books you can. No one wishes to read them. Don ' t buy anything of our advertisers. They patronize us for the fun of it. Always let your room-mate clean up for inspection. He can do it better than you. Never test grapes after dark unless you can run in 2.ioj4 . If Sophomores entice thee consent thou not. Don ' t snore in chapel. You might wake up your neighbors. Military uniforms must be worn home at Christmas. It is the rule of the College. Never give the College or class yell. It is injurious to the voice. Always take your book into an examination. It may come handv. If you don ' t want what you see, ask for it. Never bolt in less than five and one-half minutes. You may get suspended. If you want to rush, do it in the chapel. It makes a variety and amuses the Profs. Buy ten copies of the " Index. " 13T
