Resolutions AT this our first meeting, we, the Ninety-seven Index Board, having consulted all previous Indexes, and desiring to publish a book that shall cover us with undying glory, and feeling that, amid the great diversity ' of knowledge and opinions of our various members, we need some line of action to direct our wandering thoughts, make the following reso- lutions : — Resolved That the Ninety-six Index was good in its way. Resolved That all members of the Board keep away from South Deer- field and " Hamp " until after the book is published. Resolved That in return for much paternal advice and general infor- mation received from Mr. Sellew during our Freshman year, we give him a free " ad " in the Index (see " Ads, " page 52). Resolved Since Mr, Kramer has specially requested that he be not called Baron Von Wooden-Head, that his request be complied with. Resolved That the names of all students who ask the Board not to roast them be published under the head of " Free Blows " (see page 146). Resolved That in recognition of the long and efficient services of the janitor, he be made an honorary member of the Faculty, and be hereafter known as Prof. Thomas Canavan, A. P. iV., Department of Slopology and Swipology.

Preface MINDFUL that our book is about to be searched for its faults and shortcomings, we, while still thinking it superior to all former vol- umes, cannot but yield to the impulse to touch upon the many ob- stacles which we have overcome in bringing it to its present state of per- fection . The departure of most of our college cranks to other institutions has caused us to transfer much choice and interesting material to the waste- basket ; but still there are a few students left to roast. We have tried to do our best by them, and leave the reader to judge as to our success. Another serious obstacle was the college regulation which prevented our business manager from cutting recitations more than two thirds of the time, and so oiu ' advertisements are fewer than they otherwise would have been. As to the few remaining pages, they are quite evenly divided between jokes and statistics, of which the former are perhaps the more interesting, w hile probably the latter are the fresher. We hope the reader will not allow himself to be influenced by any criti- cism of this volume he may see in the columns of our college paper, but vs ill form his opinion only after a careful perusal of the book. Then, if he has any complaints to make, we should be glad to receive them in writing, with one dollar inclosed as a guarantee of good faith. All communications must be w ritten on one side of the paper only, with name in the upper right- hand corner; otherwise they will be consigned to John McLane ' s library. In spite of many obstacles we trust we have not been wholly unsuc- cessful. The memory of our departed heroes has inspired us, and urged us on to greater attempts, and it is not without some feeling of confidence that we present this, the twenty-seventh volume of the Index.
