preparation for the study of medicine than that afforded by this course ; for all the subjects which are considered preliminary essentials to this profession are thoroughly studied during the course. This applies also to the departments of Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, and especially, Veterinary Surgery. These statements, as well as those to come, will be verified by an investigation of the alumni list. From the first, the college seems to have been very fortunate in furnishing a considerable number to the pedagogic profession. They may be found in colleges and schools, in this country and abroad. And when we consider the peculiar qualifications which our graduates have for becoming successful teachers, we only wonder that a larger number are not engaged in this occupation. The mechanical and technical professions rightly claim the larger number of our alumni. Under this head we include all manner of agricultural pursuits. The college was designed primarily to replenish these professions and will ever continue faithful to its trust. Those of our alumni who have gone back to the farm or engaged in market-gardening have found their incomes larger and their situation in life higher because of their advantages at the college. While making a specialty of no one trade or pursuit, the course lays a broad foundation for them all. Those who graduate and enter upon studies in Chemistry or Engineering find that their general knowledge materially increases their success. More than that, this preliminary education prevents the narrowness of the mind which the concentration of study in the technical school tends to effect. The recognized standing of our institution among the colleges and universities of the land is gratifying to every alumnus and of great advantage to those who will engage in higher studies elsewhere. The college diploma admits to post- graduate work, without examination, in any college or university ; and those who have availed themselves of these opportunities, have done credit to themselves and to their Alma Mater. It is with no uncertain tone that we commend to the undergraduates the ad- vantages of the course which is now engaging their time. The four years of college life, fleeting as they are pleasant, will enrich their lives and invite pros- perity. And when they come to the test in the untried experiences of life, they will ever gratefully acknowledge the worth of their advantages while members of the Massachusetts Agricultural College.

To ' 98, then, belongs the honor of being the pioneer class in this new course, and right well has she begun her work. We began our four long years of toil with but twelve men, a much smaller number than any other Freshman Class has had for many years. Unlike most other entering classes, however, we have as yet lost none of our number, while our ranks have been reinforced by the addition of three good men and true. A term has passed since we came to Aggie, a term filled with incidents that will be remembered by every ' 98 man, and, indeed, we may say by every man in 24
