The battalion uiidei " Lieutenant Dickinson has preserved its former excellence, obtained by much energetic action on his part and by the co- operation of the students. A day spent parading in Northampton and attending the exericses in Hadley commemorating the hhth of General Hooker, plainly showed the excellent training received by the students. A prize drill for a gold medal offered to the best-drilled student in the manual of arms caused much competition, and without doubt helped to pei-fect the handling of the guns. In regard to athletics, the past year cannot be said to have been very successful. Two meets were held in the Gym during the winter, and an outdoor meet in the spring. Although sevei ' al records were broken, there was little competition, and Ninety-Five again won the banner with little difficulty. Neither the baseball nor the football teams we re even moder- ately successful, although financially well supported. Both were hampered by lack of men, and much improvement can hardly be hoped for with the present number of students. The athletic field is progressing slowly, but sui ' ely ; already it has lost its growth of pines, and its position can now be easily defined b} ' its acres of charred stumps. Before many years we may expect to have an inclosed field which, in itself, will give a considerable impetus to all athletic games and contests. Notwithstanding the small number of students, we feel justified in say- ing that there has been continual progress in the advantages offered by the College during the year. It has passed through a period of depression, and it is confidently hoped that with increased inducements to students, and with better facilities for instruction, our institution will have little difficulty in very soon increasing the size of the incoming classes. t 149
