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.)

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
