Our connection with the faculty thus far has been a very pleasant one, and we are satisfied that it only remains for us to do our part in order to accomplish the work and gain the object for which we are here. Classmates : Like many who have gone before, we now take up the duties of college life. It remains with us how much we shall accomplish. Let us aim high, attend faith- fully to our duties, and strive to make the career of the Class of ' 95 a credit not only to ourselves, but to our college. The future lies before us. May the sentiment of the poet be our guide in our college life : " Let us then be up and doing, With a heart for any fate ; Still achieving, still pursuing. Learn to labor and to wait. " L. He ' ll not be Happy till He Gets Them. 37

' Freshman. Class Colors — Orange and Crimson. Class Yell — Rah-Rix-Rive ! Rah-Rix-Rive ! Boom-a-lang Boo7n-a-lang I ' 95! 1 f I E, the class of ' 95, take pleasure in presenting to the readers of the Index this our first communication. As only a few weeks have passed since we entered the portals of the M. A. C, our experiences are limited, yet the short time we have been here enables us to look forward to the coming four years with pleasant anticipation. The entrance examinations were the first obstacles in our way, but forty-one valiant men safely passed the ordeal and entered the class of ' 95, to begin the battle of college life. Since then our ranks have been increased to forty-five by those entering later. We hope all will have sufficient purpose and ambition to hold out to the end. We are pleased to see with us classmates from Japan, Porto Rico, and Mexico. Illinois and Connecticut are also represented in our number. The remainder are all fair samples of Bay State boys. The first night we were in college, rumors of the " Owl Club " and its vicious acts came to us, but thus far they have favored but one of our number with a visit. Although inferior in numbers to our immediate predecessors, we were anxious to try our strength with the Sophs., and soon were given an opportunity in a rush on the Botanic Path. Did we hesitate? No; the words of our leader were obeyed. " Line up there, ' 95. Heads down. Go ! " Victory was ours ; one strong push broke their ranks and sent them flying. In our next rush the Sophs, had a great advantage in regard to num- bers, but we endeavored to show them that we were not deficient in that qualification, ■essential to any spirited class, termed pluck. Our game of foot ball with the Sophomores turned out unfortunately for us, owing to inexperience in the game. But we think the material which we have will in time ■develop into a strong team. We are exceedingly hopeful for our success in base ball the coming spring. We Iiope that we shall be able to reinforce the college base ball team with some valuable material. 36
