T HE Christmas season comes anon ; once more Vacation days are here, and Christmas joy And gladness reign supreme ! The restless tide Of college life, tempestuous and strong, Stemmed by the peace of this gay holiday, Pauses awhile. And once again. True to the custom, sage and old, Honored in turn by every class, The Index, beacon-like, shines forth, Illumining the college world With golden glow. And as the student turns His steps once more toward waiting friends and home,. The message of this volume follows him, Kindling bright hopes and high resolves within His loyal heart.

Ifntrobuction. IN placing the twenty-fourth volume of the Index in the hands of its readers, it is not our intention to dwell at length on the merits of our work, as we believe that whatever of true worth the book contains will be freely acknowl- edged by the public ; yet there are some features of the present volume which it seems quite within the limit of becoming modesty to mention. Our aim being to raise the standard of the Index, both as a literary and as an artistic production, we have endeavored not only to improve the quality, but also to increase the amount of literary matter and the number of illustrations which it contains. To make room for these additions, considerable matter of minor importance, such as the list of privates belonging to each company of the battalion, has been omitted, and at the same time the number of pages in the took has been somewhat increased over that of former volumes. We would call the attention of our readers particularly to the article entitled ' A Voice from the Alumni, " written by one of our leading graduates. It defines so admirably, and in such a pleasing manner, the present status and most pressing needs of our Alma Mater, as to make it worthy of careful perusal by every one interested in the welfare of the college. Of course our volume will be criticised — that is expected; but we would beg our readers to remember that the average Index editor, when he begins his duties, is wholly inexperienced in the kind of work which he is to perform. Were we to publish another Index, it would doubtless be more pleasing to the keenly analytic mind of the critic. Our task has been a pleasant one, and in spite of the hard work which it has involved, it is not without a sigh of regret that we relinquish the cares of state to our successors, the ' 95 Index Board.
