Class poem IDRIGHT college days, how swift they glide, As we, a loyal band of brothers true, dose ranks, and march in solid columns on Up learning ' s rugged roadway ! The seasons come and go ; the earth, once green, Is wearing now its wintry garb of snow. All nature changes, but unchanged are we, And loyalty to college and to class Shall but grow stronger as the years may pass. At no far distant day our college home Will be our home no more ; but as we roam Far from each other and from native land. Remembrance oft will these fair scenes recall In vivid colors painted. And as we con the picture o ' er and o ' er, We hear familiar voices as of yore ; The past seems but a dream, and we once more Join in a cheer For Aggie and for dear old Ninety-four. In after years, when storms and troubles rise. And darkly lower the sad autumnal skies. How happy will seem, through memory ' s golden haze. These happy, bygone days ! Then though our ranks be broken, yet shall heart Still beat to heart ; and though on earth we part, Yet will affection cling to college lore And dear old Ninety-four ! 46

true that a method of teaching the modern languages which compels the student tO ' master a certain portion of the grammar before he learns the practical application of it in both translation and conversation, is entirely out of place in our present educational system. Let us, brother alumni, push our Alma Mater to the front by urging the adoption of modern, progressive methods. The natural sciences should of necessity be one of the strongest features of the college, and we should not be content till our Library contains the best of our own and foreign scientific journals, for without them it is impossible for the professors to keep ' abreast of the progress in their several lines, or to make their students familiar with the scientific literature, which of itself is an essential part of their education. The time has passed when a man could absorb a certain amount of scientific knowledge and deal it out to his students year after year. The best way to keep in touch with the progress of the times is to have a hand in the work being done. If in all of our departments some original work could be in progress, the students would catch the spirit of investigation,, and would not leave college with the idea that there is a limit to progress along certain lines of study, but that everywhere, and especially in the sciences, the range of possibility seems limitless. In order to accomplish this, the system of overloading each professor with routine work must be avoided. Germany would not be known in the world of science if her professors were loaded with the routine drudgery to which our professors are subjected. If the space at disposal permitted, we would gladly enter into some of the details of progress at our Alma Mater, for we appreciate highly the efforts of our President, who has devoted himself so successfully to the upbuilding of the Library, and the professors and trustees who have faithfully striven for the welfare of our institution- It is always well when possible to look back over work accomplished, for it serves oft as an inspiration to renewed effort, and the mistakes of the past are often guides to future successes. May the organization of the alumni clubs of the West, of Boston, and of New York,, be only the beginning of the expressions of loyalty to our Alma Mater! Let every alumnus be aroused with a new spirit of patriotism ! Let us acquaint ourselves with educational methods elsewhere, that with liberal views we may put our shoulders squarely to the wheel and push our Alma Mater and the cause of Agricultural and Industrial! Education to the front. ALUMNUS. 45
