An Autobiography AT the earnest solicitation of the Ninety-Seven Index Board, I, Julian Styles Eaton, peer of the Class of Ninety-Eight, here pen a short sketch of my life. I was born in Nyack-on-the-Hudson. Of my early history I know very little, but mother says I was a good baby. How- ever, as I was too young to have any decided opinion of myself, which, ho vever, I have acquired since, I will pass over a few years with bare mention that I grew long and waxed exceeding green. I was noted for my abilit} ' in certain lines. In the fall of 1894, in the full verdancy of my youth, I came to the Massachusetts Agricultural College, where I spent the first year teaching Ninety-Seven how to run her class affairs, and calling the Seniors and Pro- fessors by pet names, and doing many other things of equal merit. It was I who rode home the bronco from the sugar eat. It was I who spoke those famous words, " Ninety-Six, do your duty. " It was I who held off the gallant Sophs with one little bean-shooter. It was I who struck out Cheney three times. Numerous other things have I done which, from my inborn, modesty, I leave untold. Like Gaul (gall) of old, I am divided into three parts : legs, tongue, and wind, but principally wind, — the whole surrounded by a gas-tight membrane. My legs have been the means of promoting my higher growth. They saved me from drowning in a certain basin of water, and also won for me the honor of wearing M. A. C. on my sweater. My tongue, though many times sprained in football practice and in playing tennis, is now in a healthy and vigorous condition, having com- pletely recovered from the attack of lunacy and subsequent melancholy received on the night of May 31st, and is now fully able to speak for itself. My wind is a veritable Asiatic monsoon, everlasting, perennial, and unsubdued. It bloweth upon all occasions and subjects, and is truly my constant companion. It has made my second tenor vie with the Ocarina Club and the accordion of Isham. It was the means of making the Glee Club what it is — a howling success. Thus I have outlined a brief history of myself. I am now a Sopho- more, and what I shall be when a Senior, God only knows ! Lines of extension? — Eds. 12S
