Bbitorials. 1 I E feel that it is but just to ourselves to state that we have received practically III no assistance from either the ' 92 or the ' 93 Index Board. We do not wish to complain in the least of our treatment at the hands of the ' 93 Board, as we think that whatever has been amiss in their conduct towards us must have been due entirely to some time-worn college custom, which has forbidden intercourse between the members of one ?z i?;ir Board and those of the next. If such be the case, it is time said custom was worn out, and we shall do all in our power to make it a thing of the past. As in the world at large, love of country takes precedence of love of State or of province, so in the college world, the interests of one ' s Alma Mater should be placed above those of his class. The Index is a college annual, and though each succeeding volume is published by a different class, yet to the public mind any particular volume represents the college far more than it does the class which may have chanced to pub- lish it. Hence, it is the duty of every loyal student, whatever the class to which he belongs, to lay aside class pride and petty jealousy, and do all in his power to aid the Index editors in their work. To the ' 95 Editorial Board we would say that not only do we consider it a duty, but also that it would be a pleasure, for us to assist you in your work with the experi- ence that we have gained. We wish that yours may be a lighter task than fell to our lot, and that your efforts may be crowned with greater success than ours have been. What is the reason that this college does not receive more bequests ' . Is it because we have a small sum of money from the government, or because the people believe that Agricultural Colleges are not worth supporting? If it is either of these reasons, it is a very poor one indeed; and we hope and believe that it is neither. But whatever the reason may be, there is need of a general awakening among all classes of people to 128

the needs of the Agricultural Colleges. So few are the bequests to these institutions that a prominent newspaper recently took particular note of the fact, when one of them was honored by having a few thousand dollars left to it, and had an editorial telling of the needs of such institutions. We hope and trust that as the people of this Common- wealth learn more and more of the work accomplis hedhere, they will be more liberal towards us in the matter of bequests. The College Senate of today is the governing power of many American colleges and some academies. A question we often hear asked is : " Why can we not have a senate at the M. A. C? " There seems to be no good reason why we cannot. To be sure the students of our college will average younger than those of a classical college, still we believe that in any class there are those who are capable of judging between right and wrong, and who would feel a kind of pride and responsibility were they made mem- bers of their college senate. Could we have a senate composed of members from each of the four classes, the num- ber from each to vary as the age of the class, with the President of the college as its President, the student body would take more interest in the college government, and public spirit would prevent anything being done to injure her good name. It is the desire of the ' 94 Index Board that a college senate be the form of govern- ment at the M. A. C. before the members of our class leave their Alma Mater. With the increased demand for dormitory accommodations during the past few years, and with the faculty edict that no new dormitories are to be erected in the future, there has been left but one medium through which to meet the requirements of our increasing numbers. It is for the college fraternities to erect lodges for their members, to the relief of the crowded condition of affairs now existing. Already one of our societies has finely located its members in a home, and rumors are often heard that other of our societies are soon to follow this good example. If true, the project should be encouraged in every way. Considering the age and size of our institution, the fraternity-house question has received marked attention, as but few of our American colleges have reached the position of supporting even one, but it is pleasing to note that they are gradually grasping and recognizing the benefits which are to be derived from the union of each fraternal body under a common roof, and are formulating plans for the near future. We would impress upon our readers the various benefits that would thus be 129
