Shall the Name of the College be Changed ? At the request of the editors, the following has been prepared by sending to Ex-President Stockbridge and fifty of the Alumni, the questions here noted ; the answers I have condensed, excepting Ex-President Stockbridge ' s. First. — Would agriculture suffer by a change of name to that of Massachusetts College of Science, or, Massachusetts College ? Second. — Could the work for agriculture be done as well by the present system now obtaining at the College, with a new name ? Third. — Are many prospective students lost because the College ' s name gives the impression that it is purely a college of agri- culture ? Fourth. — Is the College doing its best work for the common people of the State, under its present name ? AGAINST CHANGE OF NAME I. " Amherst, November 19th, 1897. My Dear Dr. Cutter: — Yours of the 15th is just received and it relates to what is, in my opinion, a vital matter with our M. A. C, but I don ' t care to discuss it. You ask sundry questions. The real answers are obscured in a darkened box because the reasons are. I think I see how the box is locked and dark- ened, and will lend you the key to open and look within. The Key : The heart, soul and life of the College is most materially changed since its early days, atid not for the better. Question i, yes. Question 2, no. Question 3, no. Question 4, no.

I don ' t believe so many boys are frightened by that one word " agriculture " as some think ; agriculture would suffer to this extent, that a change would indicate that farming was unpopular, and would have a degrading effect upon those choosing that occupation. I believe the contmued change in courses has had something to do with lack of students. The introduction of nature studies into our public schools will make agriculture more popular. " (A New England Farmer.) III. " In regard to the questions you ask concerning the name of ' Old Aggie, ' my opinion is that it would seem inexpedient at this late date to change the name. " (A Neiv E7igland Farmer.) IV. " Is there a name that sounds any better, that is more noble in its significance .- ' There should be more practical work done in instruction as to farming. If a change of name is made, the institution will go flat, so far as any significance to the agriculture of the 19
