xtr Bfrje lfman Hlxoii t. IT is an ancient custom for the Freshman class to hold a jubilee at the completion of their first college year. At Aggie, up to 1S92, such celebration had been held about the college grounds, and was frequently marked by collisions between the classes, occasional involuntary cold baths in the fountain, and at times almost degener- ated into a free fight, resulting not only in much hard feeling between the classes, but often in serious injury to the contestants. The disturbances were not confined to the college grounds, but were often carried on in other parts of the town, and as there are large numbers of visitors in Amherst just before commencement, such riotous proceed- ings gave the college a bad reputation. When the time came for ' 95 ' s Freshman night, we decided to institute a reform, and going to Brattleboro, Vt., we were served with an elaborate supper and had a general good time. Instead of the whole town waking to blood-curdling howls and war whoops, the night, both in Amherst and Brattleboro, was as peaceful and quiet as any other night in the year. The innovation was commended by the upper classmen, and we believe the general sentiment of the college is in its favor. The class of ' 96 wisely followed our example, and it is to be hoped for the well-being of the men themselves, the dignity of the college, and in the interest of civilization, that subsequent Freshmen may take their first degree as sensibly. But to ' 95 and ' 96 belongs the honor of having demonstrated that loyalty to college and to class may find expression in actions more creditable than those associ- ated with the old Freshman night. 134
