college. When we had been here but two or three weeks we received a challenge from the Sophomores for a rope-pull. This was accepted, and although our Captain had only about half as many men to choose his team from as did the ' 97 Captain, yet by dint of hard, determined practice and by the help of the Juniors, he was able to train his team so well that it won the rope, a thing that has not been done before by a Freshman Class for several years. (Please do not say anything about this victory to the Sophomores, as most all of them are good fellows, for they are very sore about it.) As our class is so small we were unable to get up a good foot-ball team with- out working in some First Year Men. Now it is against the principles of ' 97 to have anything to do with Two Year Men, this year, although we are told that they were glad of their help last fall in their contests with ' 96, so we had to forego the pleasure of defeating the gallant Sophomores on the gridiron. In spite of the fact that we are few in number, we have made ourselves felt in college circles. We have furnished two men for the Glee Club and one for the band, and others for various other organizations. The way we have gone at our work in the classrooms shows that we realize what is the principal thing for which we are in college. We have not been here long enough to predict with certainty how we shall succeed in the end ; but we can at least say that we have made a good start. W.

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
