f S once more our communication is demanded for the pages of the Index, we are l y reminded that our course here at college, like a little rivulet, is swiftly eddying along, each moment approaching nearer and nearer, as it were, the outlet into the larger and more conspicuous river of every-day life. It seems almost incredible at first, that two years of our college days are passed and gone. Many of these days, especially those of which every moment has been utilized to its fullest extent, will ever be looked upon with extreme pleasure and gratification. As for those golden hours which have been spent in idleness, ' twere best to say nothing of them, but leave them to the — no, not pleasurable — consideration of him whom it may most concern. The past year has been one of prosperity for ' 93 as a class. Those obstacles in our way as Freshmen only served to bind us more closely together, only resulted in firmer resolutions for the attainment of higher and greater achievements. So great has been the development that a graduate of ' 90, coming here today, will wonder if this class, which figures so voluminously on the foot ball field, which furnishes such valuable material to the base ball team, which holds its own so well in the gymnasium, — will wonder, I say, if this can be the self-same ' 93 of two years previous. During the year several class trips, of more or less importance, were taken. These certainly afforded pleasure and new ideas to members, and were undergone with very little loss in the way of study. Then when Arbor Day presented itself to ' 93 as Sophomores, two or three men decided that the most fitting way the class could celebrate the day would be to lay out a grove, in which, on future occasions, we may hold our class reunions. The project was entered upon and was vigorously carried out. The result is more than satisfactory, and dozens of promising young trees are to be seen a little west of Old Chapel. There is yet a tender subject which is most difficult of all to be touched upon. Of course, as Juniors, we are now expected to look upon the gentler sex with a little more favor than when ugly Sophomores, and we flatter ourselves the dear girls will show just good enough taste to submit to our humble graces without a murmur of impatience. Now that our change of standing in sports has been alluded to, just here it may be said that our development has not all been of the physical Sv rt. Our class has always taken the stand that, for the maintenance of the reputation of the M. A. C, it should produce a set of men truly worthy to be known as alumni of our college. Let us then, classmates, keep and stimulate this aim until every man in ' 93 shall have reached a point among the men in the world where he may with excusable pride call the attention of the under-graduate of Aggie to his own career, as being one well worthy of emulation.

Sophomore. Class Colors — Peacock Blue and Cream. Class Yell — Rah-Rex-Rah ! Zip-Boom-Bah I ' 94 ! ' 94 ! Rah-Rah-Rah ! OUR Freshman year with all its trials and triumphs has come and gone, and it is with sophomoric pride that we hand in this our second communication. Since passing the entrance examinations, fortune has seemed to smile on us, and the success we have attained, both in the recitation room and on the athletic field, makes evident the love and respect we have for our Alma Mater, and our determination to prove worthy of her benefits and protection. That we have trav eled faithfully the path of learning is shown by the number now in the class as compared with the number which entered. Some of us, also, have braved the elocutionary powers of several of the " Profs " with noble fortitude and great moral courage. We have, furthermore, learned to appreciate fully the value of the library to the busy student when compositions have to be written, or the lectures of the professors are wanted in concise form. In athletics we have more than held our own, and our defeating the Amherst Fresh- man and the High School elevens, and tieing the score with our predecessors, the class of ' 93, in foot ball in our Freshman year, will long be remembered and held up as a standard to be attained by succeeding classes. Then, too, our showing on the diamond last spring was such as we can always look back upon with pardonable pride. This year we have succeeded in defeating the Freshmen at foot ball, with a score never before secured upon our campus. We are still expectantly awaiting the rope-pull, confident that we shall obtain a sample of the rope for the adornment of our rooms. The pride of every class. Freshman night, is a thing of the past, and we are sure that history will do us justice in recording the events of that occasion. It could not honorably do otherwise. Our display of fireworks upon that memorable night was especially fine, and, although inexperienced in such things, our banquet was enjoyed by all and lasted until the gray light of morn appeared, revealing ' 94 one step higher on the ladder of fame. 34
