Hammar. — God in his infinite goodness sent us Hammar. We could never understand why he did not go to Amherst College. But the Lord willeth all things best. A more faithful worker, a more conscientious student, or a better classman would be hard to find. When drafted for the immortal " Six, " he was exempt because of physical conditions and a disposition in favor of class loyalty. A man of resources, who can turn his hand to anything, a jack-of -all-trades in fact. Does his own washing when he has any done, specks shoes, and trains mud-turtles. Plays the fiddle, and might sing in the choir. Loves the pipe, and is a good judge of Tillson ' s best- Harper. — The chemical genius from Wakefield, a queer fellow, changeable as the wind, of which he has an abundant supply, both for running his talk clapper and blowing his cornet. Is very much interested in music and bands, especially in waistbands. In the dark ages of sophomore year the trembling freshmen wondered much from what new and wonderful monster came that awe-inspiring war-cry, " Tick-quaw. " Ask Harper, ye sons of ' 97. Has done much for his class and college in athletics, is a student and is conscious of it. Leader of the band and orchestra, and sees more air castles rise and fall than any other man in college. Hayward. — -Words fail when we attempt to describe this man. In art, science, literature, and music he stands without a peer. In cutting recitations, Springing stale jokes, in abusing young Profs., in mashing young girls from the " Currer, " wearing loud pants, etc., we repeat, he stands without a peer. With all the above-named qualifications there are none to fill his place. None so brilliant, none so kind-hearted, none so genial as Hayward. There was never one just like him. In fact you seldom see such a combination ; an all day talker, can entertain an audience of any size with the latest songs, stories both amusing and sentimental, an athlete of considerable note, an " A No. 1 " scholar. Comes from the unparalleled and phe- nomenal town of Rockville. His chief hope and ambition is to become a lawyer. For two years he has labored to keep up the reputation of the class as an editor of our college paper, and for two years he has succeeded as man never succeeded before. We dis miss him by imparting our blessing upon him wherever he may be, Jones. — If there were to be another flood, we feel assured that ' 96 would have at least one representative in the Ark. He is the only white man in the class who is an active member of the Y. M. C. A. Jones is our specimen from Middlefield, and is a typical farmer. He is never at ease unless attired in a blue jumper and a pair of overalls, and never fully enjoys him- self unless he is listening to the rhythmic splash of the milk into the pail. A brave and fearless soldier, his name will go down to posterity on cherished marble as First Sergeant of the Washburne Six. As a man he is an honest, straight-forward fellow ; and while we cannot prophesy a brilliant career for him, we feel sure that he will never be " launched into eternity " victim of unbridled passions.

De Luce.— The great I am that is to be when Clark steps out of his shoes. Who of us who know him will ever be able to forget those killing sluggers, the terrific manner in which he consumes cigarettes, or his military and commanding presence as, in his sergeant-major uniform he marched across the parade ground in all the majesty of his young man- hood. It is a question with us whether he wears his suspenders to keep his unspeakables up or to hold himself down. He graced the Glee Club with his presence for two seasons, but his deep passionate voice and his dark dreamy eyes had such a killing effect on the dear girls that he was obliged to leave the stage or be arrested as a dangerous character. He chose the former and now consoles himself with the hurdy-gurdy. We understand that Ward McAllister is watching him with a view of letting his mantle fall upon him. Edwards. — Familiarly known as Weary Waggles or Lamentations. A noble classman, a sincere friend, and one of the pleasantest and best natured men in the great Class of ' 96. Refused to be enlisted in the Washburne Six, and fought Trig, three rounds to a finish and declared a winner by sixty-five points. Has grown rapidly in favor with his classmates as well as in stature since coming to college, and as we see this lengthy friend of ours coming across the campus we are forcibly reminded of Brother Jonathan. " Awkward in his gait, simple in appearance, and giving promise of great strength when he should get his growth. " He is quite a tennis enthusiast, and he and Fletcher have fought out many a struggle on the court. He was a member of the class base-ball team in his sophomore year, and is ever ready to lend a willing hand to the needy. Fletcher. — Far beyond one ' s imagination, down on the Eastern coast of the Grand Old Bay State, isolated among the sea-sands, undisturbed by the noisy hustle and bustle of metropolitan life, is situated a town too small to be seen on the map, called Rock. It is from this unhallowed spot that our Fletcher came. Vulgarly known as " Canavan ' s Devil, " but one of the best of men at heart. Life to him means something besides being in love and going to theatres and dances. He finds plenty of amusement in doing good ; combining business and pleasure, so to speak. Not a quilting party or a sewing circle escapes him ; and many a poor heathen in the Sandwich Islands is indebted to Fletcher for his suspenders. An ardent supporter of the class, and one whom any student would be pleased to call a friend. Green. — Si for short. We love him for the memories he has left us, and we are sure that his heart and his purse are always with the class. One of Nature ' s noblemen, always right and for the right. He came from the manufacturing town o f Spencer, that has sent us anything from a Star(r) to a Bacon ; and in thinking of Green we are forcibly reminded of the words of the poet : — ' ■ The first four acts already passed, The fifth shall close the drama and the day, Time ' s noblest offspring is the last. " 106

Kinney. — This is a long subject, and we hesitate before so great a task as undertaking to do it justice in the short space allowed us. Whole volumes might be written, and even then our task would be incomplete. He is a dead game sport from Tatnuck, and says that he cuts lots of ice with the girls in that vicinity ; but we would add that as a story teller he is second to none not excepting Baron Munchausen. We wish we could impart an adequate conception of his towering form, that noble and firmly set head, crowned with its mass of flaxen hair parted in the middle, that Roman nose, and that long silky moustache. As Drum Major of the battalion, he is the observed of all observers. His comprehensive knowledge of everything together with his prowess in athletics, has given him the high position which he holds in our esteem. Kramer. — Albin Maximillian Kramer, alias " Baron Von Woodenhead, ' ' alias " Dutchy, " the Clinton phenomenon. Since the moment of his arrival, the Baron has been a marked man. A stranger in a strange land, he has been the victim of innumerable practical jokes. He is an authority on all scientific subjects, especially Botany and Foot-ball, and at onetime aspired to become assistant instructor in German ; in fact he is a regular walking Encyclopedia Germanica. He is very careful with whom he associates, being the only non-society man in the class, even refusing to join the Y. M. C. A. until he had ascertained the character of its members. We understand that he is expecting to be called home to Germany at any time to take a seat in the Reichstag. Leamy. — P. A. -P. A. — Rah, rah — Rah, rah etc. Of men like Pat it may be truly said " the gods made but one, then broke the mould. " As an orator, statesman, politician, pugilist, base-ballist, " nigger minstrel, " Prof, bluffer, and an all round sport, he stands pre-eminent. In con- junction with our friend from Lancaster, he has invaded the realms of East St. and captured its choicest jewel. But leaving all joking aside, Leamy is a man of whom we all are proud. A loyal class man, a genial companion, a true friend, and in fact a man in every sense of the word. May his shadow never be less. Marshall. — Jim is one- whom the class is proud of as a man, a student, and an athlete. A sincere friend, an open enemy, and a loyal classmate, he commands the respect and esteem of all. That he stands well in his class is shown by the fact that he escaped being conditioned by " Courty. " As an athlete he is a veritable find. He is little, but oh my ! To him more than to. any other one man is due the position which our class holds in athletics. With all his good qualities, he has, however, one little failing, a weakness for the " female sex. " He may frequently be seen in company with a classmate promenading the more retired and shady streets of Amherst, with a " chip " not exactly on his shoulder but near it. Jim is young yet, and we expect that when he marries that little Lancaster girl he will settle down on a farm to raise 1 jig cabbages to sell to Kramer for sauerkraut for his Clinton Bier Garten. 1 08
