I fartilg Jipiitralfa llyia Doluntp. 11916 c llexander cAnderson cTVlackimmie HEN the tide of immigration in early days set toward America, the Scotchman, like many another, saw across the sea a land of greater jtromise than he had found in his native land. A pioneer, seeking in Canada or in the states a new home, he brought with him, not alone an infinite capacity for work, but he brought with him, also, a profound reverence for the wisdom found in hooks, and for his University whose scholars were leaders towards Life ' s ideals. From such an ancestry comes Alexander Anderson Mackimmie, a man who counts as his richest inheritance forbears who called the University of Edinborough Alma Mater, whose fealty was pledged to the Eraser clan, whose watchword through the years had been " Toujours jiret. " Studying in the public schools of Nova Scotia, under teachers whose strict rule made every lad give his best effort to each task, the boy Mackimmie counted among his treasures the leather-bound books that had been his great grandfather ' s in university days. Perhaps through these books a vision came of the city set upon a hill, whose university is its crowning glory, and of the land where the scholar is peer in his own right. Perhaps then the ambition came which has crystallized in his life, — to learn for the love of learning, counting the joy of pursuit as reward in itself. At sixteen Mr. Mackimmie began teaching in the schools of his home province, continuing in this work until 1!)0(I. An opportunity for foreign travel then presented itself, and the next three years were silent in the south of Europe. Then Mackimmie turned his face homeward, and September of 1903, found him at Princeton, a member of the Sophomore class. Princeton justified this bit of wisdom on her part three years later, conferring on Mr. Mackimmie the degree of Hachelor of Arts, magna cum laudc, and awarding him the Boudiuot fellowship in modern languages for lf)07. For the next two years Professor Mackimmie taught at Truro Academy, but in 1908 he came to the states, beginning his work as instructor in French at the Massachusetts Agricultural College, in Se} tember of that year. In 1909-10, he served as assistant to the Acting Dean and in 1911 received his ap- pointment as assistant professor of French, a position which he still holds. 1916 Professor Mackimmie is a teacher, not alone by instinct and training, but by inheritance as well. Duncan Ross, his grandfather, founded the iirst school in Durham, Nova Scotia, and to another kinsman, James Ross, was given the honor of being the first president of Dalhousie College. An early biographer of Washington has said, " Hereditary rank may be an illusion, but hereditary virtue gives a patent of innate nobleness beyond all the blazonry of the Herald College. " Such an inheritance seems to have been Professor Mackimmie ' s, and his life has proved him worthy to inherit. It is Mackimmie the man whom the students honor, Mackimmie the teacher whom they revere. " A log with Mark Hopkins at one end and a stu- dent at the other end is college enough for any man, " said James A. Garfield. Very much the same is the feeling that our students have for Professor Mac- kimmie. Not only are his courses valued for the instruction in French or in Spanish, but for the knowledge gained of men and things, a direct result of Professor Mackimmie ' s cosmopolitan training. Said one of his stu- dents, " A course with Mackimmie is better than a trip to Europe, for we see everything worth seeing and we see it witli Mackimmie ' s eyes. " To him all men are brothers, and his sympathy extends from the student who needs his help to the Italian laborer who has learned to watch for the Professor and to expect his " buon giorno, " a welcome echo from the home country. Alike, all who know Professor Mackimmie honor him as the scholar par excellence, as the friend tried and proven.

' ' ail9ie 1915 Class History RACK ! The starter ' s pistol announces that three laps of our long race are accomplished, and we are starting on the last. Our team, which straggled along at the beginning, is now bunched n]). Some of our men have been lapped, but the strong nucleus which remains has come in- to its second wind, and every man is running freely. Far ahead, around the curve of the year, we see the finish tape. The faculty in the judges stand will greet us, then, and award our hard earned letters. But the race has not been such a hard one, after all. For one lap 1914 set the pace for us, and though it made us Avork, we showed up well, and had enough wind the second lap to show 1!)1() how to do it. The third lap was easy. None of the team dropped out. We were surprised to find the coarse smoother, the hills more lexel. the heat less ipi)ressive. No, it has not been bad. and if it weie not for The future ahead we wouldn ' t want to finish. I ' .ut we do look forward to a future. We feel that the experience of this race has been the making of us. We con- fidently expect that the coming years will find us earning a name for our team and for the Alma Mater we represent. In whatever nation and on whatever courses our future races will be run, we shall stand for clean sport and fair play every time. With such for our ideals we hope to attain the Olympic of life. Some of us may become officials there; others may be heroes of the race, and at the end of the course receive the crown of laurel from the very Sovereign ' s hands. Though our history appears for the last time in this book, we hope that it will later be found without a blot, in the history of the W(n-ld. 53 1916 iMiH Class Officers Philip F.

Meu and women fought with one another for standing room at the great trial. At the appointed hour, the ' 16 good men and true filed into the jury-box. A liush fell upon the scene; and as the Judge arose, wallet in hand, the fall of a pin should have shaken the puttv from the windows. The Judge began to speak : " 1 think (laughter I it was Archie Medes who used to say, ' Every man has his price. ' Do I hear a bid for the verdict? (short pause) But I di- gress. The purpose of this trial is to investigate the charge of the Aggie Glooms, represented by Mr. 1). I ' este Gloom, that Mr. O. Joy, represent- ing the Joys of Aggie, has been guilty of neglect of duty in his dealings with the Class of 1!)1(). Let the trial jii ' oceed.

" In a Hash every man in the jury-box was on his feet, and the fighting yell of 1916 crashed through the crowded room. In the excitement. Gloom slipped away unobserved. A hurried collection was taken for the Judge; and with Joy on their shoulders the jury snake-danced out of the court-room, singing that sweet old wheeze: " It ain ' t goin ' to rain anyliow, anyhow.

The center of things intellectual, tlie Hub should be given some credit for this member of the species as he ori- ginated there in January, 1895. In Sophomore year he unearthed latent track ability that nearly took our breath away. But this is not all; he used his pen so handily that he earned a place as an artist.

" Since the 24th of November, 1894, he has acquired many accomplishments, both in and out of Somerville. He can tickle the ivories, write class songs, dance — yes even on a carpet, but of course it must be a rag carpet. He expects to major in economics. If this is so we hope that he will profit by past experience, and not take it upon himself to torture posterity by compiling reference books on such dry sub- jects as " The Economic Factors in the Produc- tion of Extra Dry Champagne.

This product of Hubbardston ' s rugged hills, first noticed their ancient grandeur on January 23, 1890, but since that time, has seen fit to re- move himself to Marshfield, Mass. Early in life he was a very observing child, and while very young, discovered that a butterfly was dif- ferent from a bee, not only in looks but in ac- tions. This was the beginning of " Barnesy ' s " entomological career. He hiked to Mt. Hermon, assimilated enough knowledge to enter M. A. C. During the summer he keeps the seaweed from becoming too troublesome on the little old farm. Without a doubt. .- " And may there be no foaming at the bar IVhen I go out to spree. " Plymouth.

This same desire for the rural life led him to come to Aggie. He is characterized by his drawing, entranc- ing, alluring soul-shining eyes, his diminutive size, his beautifully curved legs, and on a cer- tain occasion by an overpowering odor acquired over night in lodgings at the expense of the Freshmen.

His untamed spirit pines for the freedom of the Williamsburg hills, and he plans to return and startle the natives with his agricultural achievements, the acme of which is an oat that ripens as predigested oatmeal. 82 1915 " Somebody blundered " C.

He be- gan his life on June 13, 1894, in Jamaica Plains, but as soon as he could ambulate he took the subway to Cambridge. Aggie gained a general farmer when Harvard lost this man. " Shorty " is one of the merchants of the class, running the college store in company with " Nap " Hager, who are now doing a rushing business since real ice cream made its appearance on the campus.

Bored by the noise of the cotton mills, " Sandy " turned his back upon the noise and clatter of his native city, and sought the verdant meadows of the Con- necticut Valley. A Durfee High graduate, he outwitted the triumvirate, and now has dedi- cated his life and talents to the extermination of the elm beetle and potato bug.

When a mere boy he demonstrated the principal of the rectilinear propagation of light by the discovery that he could not see around a corner.

Of his early life we know little, except that he kept smiling and always had a high regard for the highest and the best. His cheerfulness, even when bothered with a skeleton which needed fixing, has made him about the most popular man on the campus. Dutch was a valuable man in surveying field-work, his " I say, old chappie, wobble it about a bit " being audible for miles. He is passionately fond of food, and uses it at nearly every meal.

Although he runs a large automobile for someone higher up during odd hours, " Don " has never entirely lost the common touch.

The Amalgamated American Society of Students received this new member on June 4, 1892, the place of reception be- ing Boston, Mass. He prepared for the ordeal at Thayer Academy and by living at Thayer ' s during his freshman year. When every vaca- tion starts he laboriously climbs up to Pittsfield, Mass. The only thing that the rest of the board has against Pete is his inveterate desire to pun, but as Marc Antony remarked when they told him that Cleopatra was stringing him, " there ' ll be others. " Pete majors in landscape and spends the summers in lobster farming down in Hanover, Mass. 98 " pji -ue J " = fcr 1916 " Anon I marvel luhat thou art. " This Knight Errant claims Cleveland, Ohio, as natal burg. Since June 4, 1892, his tireless quest has been for knowledge. He spoke two languages before he learned to walk, and at the end of two years the only thing that could check his plaintive wail was a Greek lexicon. This desire for knowledge drove him from the wild west into the Bay State, and having de- cided to study Forestry came to Aggie. Here his aesthetic and literary tastes have found a chance to boil over at the home of Miss Goess- man. His recitations are a source of wonder, and greatly perplex his satalites " Romey " and Gilmore. " A re-vnlving fragment of the Paleozoic aye Accumulates no cryptogamous vegetation. " Class Baseball (i, 2); Class Football (2). It was one of the fairest days of the whole year of 1892, that on which Abe first saw Bos- ton, namely August 13. The crooked streets and the alleys were almost Riverside drives be- cause, just because " Abe " was a smiling. So he moved to Roxbury and brightened up that already glistening suburb. " Abe " began to be a regular guy. He would stand on the street corners and talk to Tom Dillon for hours, and it was even " Abe " who engineered that send off. But " Abe " could play football and he could also pitch other things besides pennies, so that he was classed as one of the regular athletes. A horrible fate now overtook " Abe. " Both blows fell at once. He majored in Plant Pathology and Physiology and he wants to live in Clark Hall during the summer. " Above the pitch, nut of tune, and off the hinges. " Glee Club; C. C. Let me make your songs and I will make your laws. This was the challenge that " Ducky " sent to Villa. Owing to the unsettled affairs in Mexico he has not yet heard from the momentous undertaking-. However, he opto- mistically hopes to be the savior of the swarthy Mexicans by upliftinp ' their national collection of sentimental expression. " Ducky " first sang in Dorchester on August 8, 1894. There he spent his spare time until the fall of 1912. As his part toward the advancement of landscape architecture he is working on an aeolian harp that will play all the latest rags. This is to attract the poor to the parks that they may dance, and then acquire the habit of strolling in the beauty spots of the city. We wish him success for his problem has great sociological bearing. - .t LU-jM 1915 " The grace and versatility of tlie man. " Stockbridge Club; Freshman Banquet Com- mittee; Class Vice-President. This horny handed son of the soil commenced his brilliant career November 25, 1891, in the town of New Lisbon, N. Y., and came to us from Cooperstown. He keeps his matrimonial complications so quiet that no one ever mis- trusted that he was a benedict. Always a loyal member of ' 16 his classmates, will long remember his splendid display of perseverance and detec- tive abilities shown at old Hadley. Making himself a general farmer, he is giving one more N. V. farm a chance to amount to something.

It beats all what prolonged sufiFering will do to a man. Notice, aggressive reader, those lines of worry about his tired eyes. This comes from living next door to the L W. W. Time- bomb Works. On December i, 1894, the habit of living in Lawrence began to take hold of Alfred, and it has grown upon him since to an alarming extent. A kid brought up in such a place really doesn ' t have a fair chance. He at- tended the Lawrence High, and was in the same class with a number of other young men of about the same age. He promoted and won the first Chicle Chewing Contest ever held in Essex county, and was one of the first to use the crouching start in this branch of athletics. " Not much talk, a great sweet silence. " This forty horse power silence machine is a quiet advertisement for Fitchburg, Mass. Janu- ary- 9, 1894, was the date of his entrance into that rugged city and although all of the mills did not shut down the event was one of great importance to the metropolis. He was gradu- ated from the Fitchburg Hicjh School and then came up to Aggie to learn how to be a teacher under the able direction of " Pop " Hart. Silence being golden, Uppie proved to be a veritable Alaska, but he showed us all up by landing one of the Botany prizes. No! he doesn ' t spend his summers as cheer leader in a deaf and dumb asylum, but weeds carrots on a market garden farm. JL.lLLkMk m s 1916 " Hark! from the tombs a doleful sound.

" Born in Westford, September 26, 1893, his three decker brain easily won him honors at the Westford Academy. Ap- pearances are often deceitful and " Herbie " is no exception. He lived for two years at Brook ' s Farm, and much of the notoriety gained for this place was due to his diabolical innovations. While here he organized the Hall and Walkden Commissary Institution, which was dissolved because he could not buy bread without heels or pies with five quarters. A Westford fruit farm tolerates him summers, and he majors in floriculture. " Framed in the prodigality of nature.

The salt air seemed to have agreed with " Heine, " and one shudders to think what the product would have been if a goodly portion of such a husky carcas had not been turned up to feet. He was a scarlet fever patient, and outside diversions such as nocturnal pillages, a shaved head, and a pretty nurse seemed to have rather peeved him. His major is agriculture.

One would have imagined that he would have stayed there, but you can ' t keep genius down so he came out to Brattleboro for a preparatory education. Don ' t you believe that he is a genius? Listen! His earliest re- corded utterance was " Lord, I wonder what fool it was first invented kissing. " However, college life sadly undermined his fine young character so that he now totes a skirt. We are deeply grieved that he should have fallen from the uprightness of his ways, but we hope for the best. His chief characteristic is to talk little and say much. He elects agricultural education. " It is a delightful task To teach the young idea how to shoot. " Rifle Team (i, 2) ; B K • This young idea learned how to shoot before he came to M. A. C, so when he did come he quite materially benefited the rifle team in sus- taining its nation wide reputation. At a certain time on March 7, 1S93, all the Waltham watches stopped running and covered their faces with their hands, for " Ray " came to town. " Ray " stayed in the watch city just long enough to wheedle his way through the high school, and since then has been stowed away at Stow. His major study is Pomology, and needless to say a cider mill will be on his plantation, as should be the case with every good pomologist. " Thou art become one of us. " We are not sure just where he came from, having just arrived this fall. Boston didn ' t know it, at the time, but it was given a big boost in celebrating Patriot ' s Day in 1890, when this fellow began to eat baked beans. He graduated from Everett High and now lives in Dorchester. He elects Pomology which leads us to believe that he is fond of fruit, especially dates with peaches.

However, he did bring us a good heart as any- one that knows him will testify. If there is any one thing that will make him sore it is to have them refer to Boston as the Hub of the Universe. " Hubs are all right, " says Whit, " but the tire is the part that bears the load and believe me. New York is some tire in the general scheme of things. I ' ve known Brooklyn since March 29, 1894, and you can tuck the fact that she is there under your Stetson and you ' ll have the truth and nothing else up there.

Wildon ' s keenness for argument once led him to interrupt a conversation of a couple of friends who were talking about dolphins, with the savage remark that dolls couldn ' t swim and he knew it.

He ground through two vears of work and then responded to the call of the road. His travels took him first to Kansas and the wheat harvests, then to the Northwest, eventually he landed ' in Canada. At length after two years of varied ex- perience he returned to face the row of books long since grown dusty on his book shelf.

This, we failed to do ; but we gained more in class spirit and class unity than we might have done had we succeeded in having our oflScers with us at the banquet. " Voice — " We sure have the pep with us this year all right, all right. The sixty man rope pull was like taking candy away from a baby. We must not, however, judge our new rivals too severely, lest our action prove fatal to us. On the other hand our object is to take 1918 " under the shadow of our wing, " and guide and direct her in the path that shall eventually lead her to a better and fuller knowledge of what Old Aggie expects of her.

We had a repre- sentative on every Varsity team last year with the exception of baseball ; and this year the prospects are extremely bright for us. " " In the annual in-door track meet we made some pretty exhibits, yet 1916 managed to run off with a larger score than ours. We were close upon the trail of 1916, and far in advance of either 1914 or 1915.

Y Waljiole Simderlaud South Hadlev Falls N c ■f V y V 122 Ye Chronicles of 1918 And it came to pass in the niontli of cider and corn roasts, that a vast multitude assembled at the tabernacle of learning. Among these were divers husbandmen skilled in knowledge, where- fore they wore peach down on the upper lip, and behaved always with wonderous dignity, and verily these were the Seniors. Juniors there were also, men versed in the world, and in the wiles of damsels, nomads roving from time to time o ' er mountain and o ' er river. And lo and behold, it was observed that a new tribe had appeared at the tabernacle — striplings of small stature, but of pleasing mien, and the Juniors and Seniors spake to one another, saying, " Verily these are goodly youths, full of promise. We must name them Freshmen, albeit a better title is assuredly their due. " And it came to pass that the Juniors gave the Freshmen warning " Be not over bold, for there lurks in these precincts a tribe of wild Malekites — Phili- stines and men of Belial. Sophomores they are called, which is yiddish for rough necks. Go not near them for they will seek to devour you, even as a hungry man devours hash house steak. " But the Frosh were in no wise dismayed, and when their enemy came to battle, they did but laugh satirically in the faces of the Malekites. On this account were the Sophs very wroth, and made bold to hurl divers Freshmen in the pond, even as Joashadab cast bread upon the waters, even as the ass kicked Balaam into the Galilee. Thus the Sophs amused themselves, taking pleasure in childish diversions which was but fitting and proper, for they had still to learn good manners, and though they were Sophs they were by no means sophisticated. In full measure have the Freshmen entered into the work of the taber- nacle, laboring earnestly under the high priest " Prexy. " As they have been modest so have they been great. As they have shown meekness, so have they displayed strength. As they have sown, so shall they reap — and bounteous be the harvest.

T. V. fraternity. In September, 1911, plans and blue prints were ready for a field on that location. President Butterfleld asked that these plans be looked over; his reipiest wa.s complied with, and after due consideration were pronounced in- iide:pnite. There the matter dropped. In Ihc fall of 1012, Prof. Hicks asked permission from the President to visit several of the state institutions for the jjurpose of examining their ath- letic fields. Consent was given, with the result that twenty three of the state colleges and universities as far west as Kansas and Nebraska were visited, and their athletic fields and gynmasinnis carclnlly inspected. These investiga- tions were the beginning of plans for llie new Held. The next step was to formulate a definite plan of action, for although a field had long been talked of, there was no absolute statement as to how and by wliom the field should be built. The body then controlling athletics was known as the athletic board, but had no recognition from the trustees by which it might do business. At the meeting of the trustees in June, 1913, there was presented a jtlan for the control of athletics, and for the construction of a field, under what would be known as a Joint Committee on Inter-Collegiate Athletics, this committee to derive its powers from the trustees. The trustees voted to accejit the plan and the flist meeting of the connnittee was held in September, 1!)1. " !. A subcommittee was aiijjointed with jiower to raise funds for the field and to construct the same. At a meeting of the trustees in June, 1913, the section of land now graded for an athletic field was set aside for that purjtose. The plan was presented to the students on December 3, 1913, at which time .f2,5()() was pledged. Actual construction of the field was begun with stu- dent labor on April 10, 1914. All drains were laid and everything ready for the contractor by June 8, 1914. G. S. Dickinson of Amherst was the contractor. The plans embody the best arrangemeut for the land, and are a combination of the best features of the fields examined by Prof. Hicks. The class of 1903 has undertaken to build the gate, ujion which work will be started in the spring. When completed this |12.lll)(l investment will prove an invaluable asset to athletics at this colleae. 138 ' The Football Season The 1!)14 football seasou opened with several difliculties for Coach Brides to overcome. There were five veterans of the strong 1913 team remaining, the 1914 schedule was the hardest an Aggie team ever faced, the new rule prohibit- ing freshmen from playing on the Varsity had gone into effect, and there was a woeful lack of good substitute material in the upper classes. At the time of writing, four games have been played and it cannot be truthfully said that the season thus far has been a success. As the chief cause for this fact, the lack of football men now in college can be given. Football men of ability are not matriculating here, for reasons not to be set forth in this review. The team has woi-ked hard and faithfully, but has not yet shown the power that it is capable of. The two biggest games are still remaining, and there is a fighting chance for the team to come through and make the season successful. The student body is standing loyally behind the team, aud is a big factor in driving the team to do its best. The management is to be highly commended and has worked hard to help the team. There is not another C!oach in the country that could have done as much for the teams here as Coach Brides has done in the last three years, and no mistake will be made in secur- ing him for the 191.5 team. 140 1916 ' - ' ,i ?i,£.::«!touu.i: otttfc-.;,, .

Our season record shows six victories and two defeats. With " Det " as our leader and with ex-captain Jack Hutchinson back in his old place, our aggregation soon rounded into shape so that our first game with Williams very handily came our way, 8-1. Our next game came at the end of the Christmas vacation, the team going to West Point and taking the cadets into camp by a 5-0 score. The next two games, while they were our only defeats, can not be looked upon as such from a purely hockey standj oint either at Hanover or in the Boston Arena. We showed that our team was fully as strong as either Dart- mouth or Harvard to which we went down to defeat 2-1, and 5-4 respectively; the latter game being a ten minute overtime one. The rest of the schedule came our -way very easily. Holy Cross being the first victims. 13-0, followed by the Springfield Y. M. C. A. college 2-0 and 5-0, and Amherst in the last game of the year by a 4-0 score. By graduation this year we lose undoubtedly the two most valuable men on last year ' s team ; but on looking over the prospects there seems to be no reason why Aggie should not hold her place among the leading college hockey teams of the country. Manager Draper is arranging an excellent schedule, Harvard, Yale, Prince- ton, Dartmouth and Cornell already being booked. With the backing of the student body and a good enthusiastic spirit instilled into the entire team, one may look to another big year of hockey at M. A. C. 143 HocKKY Team l!)i:M!il4 The Hockey Association Herbert H. Archibald Captain Earle S. Draper Manager Frank A. Anderson, Charles A. Huntington . .

On the surface this would look like an unsuccessful season, but considering the fact that the team was composed of men who were decidedly green at the sport, the results were not so surprising. Two members of the team were first year men, and only one of the remaining two had repre- sented M. A. C. before. At the coast Artillery Corps meet, the team lost to Tufts, and in the tri- angular meet with Worcester Tech and Boston College, at the B. A. A. games held at Boston, we had to be contended with third place. Kh((de Island, how- ever, fell an easy victim at the annual indoor meet of the Armory Athletic Association held in I ' rovideuce. Coach Dickinson deserves great credit for his hard and consistent work with the new material. In the outdoor spring work, the team was too severely handicapped by the lack of proper facilities to make much of a showing. As it was we kept Am- herst hustling in the annual meet, and with the majority of the old material on hand and much promising color in the new class, the meet this year may take on a different aspect. The same applies to the N. E. I. A. A. meet, although no I)oints were scored last year, the showing of the men was promising, thanks to the unlimited service of Pratt P ield offered to our men, and to the good hearted coaching of Prof. Neligan. 145 Track Team, 1913-1914 The Track Association Harold Aiken, ' 1(j ....

Tlie team met witli one defeat and one victory, and placed sixth in the Intercollegiates at Dartmouth. The team won a victory over the well balanced Amherst team, but later lost to the team from Brown. This defeat was partly due to bad weather, and partly because the team was hindered by the lack of spiked shoes. This year saw M. A. C. represented for the first time in the New England Intercollegiates. The Intercollegiate cross covmtry run was held over the ideal course at Dartmouth. The well balanced Maine team nosed out the fast Dart- mouth team. M. A. C. finished sixth, winning over Amherst and Williams. This showing was all that could be expected, and the prospects for a good team next year are bright, because only one man will be lost by graduation. Too much credit can not be given Coach Whittier for his untiring work in coach- ing the team, and giving timelv advice.

Due to more thau mediocre teams iu the past few years, Aggie has established for herself a name among the higher in- stitutions of learning. Now no longer must we fear iu picking our games as we have proven ourselves capable of giving the larger college teams more than practice games. However, we cannot afford to lie back and rest on our laurels of years past, but must rather give added incentive to the thought that next year will see a team that can put Aggie on a higher plane thau ever before. The com- ing year must necessarily be a sort of a climax where a winning team will add much to the pi ' estige of M. A. C. and make her a powerful factor in inter- collegiate baseball. In the year gone by, we find the baseball aggregation made up largely of veterans of the year before who showed good results under the coaching of " Billj " Fitzmaurice. Of that winning combination, however, five men have been lost, two of them pitchers who for four years have been the mainstays in the box, besides being reliable battei-s. So an almost entirely new team must be formed which means more earnest efforts in the early Spring training. With- out doubt our facilities for indoor work are poor, yet this should ouly prove an incentive to greater efforts on our part. From the result of the 1914 sea- son, one cannot help but conclude that there must be developed a team that has the punch to last from the very start until the last game of the season is over.

Dni-ing the five seasons past, the team has won the United States intercollegiate indoor championship three times and the outdoor championship four times. Last year with a season ' s average of 968.7 and record breaking scores of 978 and 980, the team finished in second place, losing their only match to Mi chigan Aggie, who established phenomenal scores in intercollegiate indoor shooting. The outdoor rifle team last spring established a new record by scoring 827 out of a possible 900, and finishing in first place. This was accomplished despite the fact that the team had no coach and shot imder somewhat unfavorable rules. The following men comprised the outdoor team : E. W. Dunbar ' 14, J. H. Oertel ' 14, E. P. Hotis ' 15, M. C. Lane ' 15, G. F. Hyde ' 15, E. M. LTpton ' 15. M. 0. Lane ' 15 was elected ca])tain for this year. Prospects for a successful indoor team are very bright for this year, seven of last year ' s team being left in college. However, there are places for the new men, and anyone who has any ability in that line should follow it up, as men must be developed to take the places of those who graduate with 1915. The success of the t eam depends to a large extent vipon the student body. Their financial support means better equipment and good coaching, both being very important factors in the season ' s shooting. The name of M. A. C. has been brought before the public many times because of the victories of her rifle team, and such a team deserves the continued support which has been given it in the past. The athletic association has granted an rMt to those men who make up the outdoor team, or who shot among the first five in 50 per cent of the indoor matches and whose average is 188 or better. The student body has not failed in their support in the past, and it is hoped that this year will prove no exception. 1916 Indoor Rifle Team Individual Averages Name Number of Matches Shot Ave. Hotis, " 15 11 194.2 Oertel, ' 14 11 194.0 Wetherbee, ' 16 11 192.9 Dunbar, ' 14, Captain 11 192.7 Upton, ' 15 5 191.8 Mack, ' 17 7 191.7 Clark, ' 14 . 11 191.1 Hyde, ' 15 11 190.8 Lane, ' 15 . 10 189.1 Parmenter, " 15 8 188.2 Wliitmore, ' 15 10 186.2 M.

A. C. was in a deplorable state and it became apparent tliat unless an adequate and efficient coach could be secured the idea of having- a glee and mandolin club would have to be given up. Through the efforts of several ineiiiliers of the (irganizalion the services were secured of Mr. John Bland, choirmaster of Calvarv Episcopal Church, New York City. With the advent of Mr. Bland into musical circles at the college, flagging interest revived and, before the end of the year, a club materialized of which the college could be justly proud. Last year Mr. Bland again had charge of the singing and in spite of various set-backs the spring season witnessed an or- ganization of an even higher standard than formerly, and the annual incursion into New York and New Yersey proved highly successful. The coming year gives promise of indeed wonderful results both from the financial and musical standpoint. Some sixty men have shown keen desire to push the organization and set it upon a higher plane than ever before. An elaborate schedule of performances is being arranged for, including an api ear- ance at Carnegie Hall, New York, in conjunction with the clubs of Harvard, Columbia, University of Pennsylvania and Dartmouth. This will be in the form of a competitive sing, participation in which will mean a great advertis- ing feature for the college. The management predicts several vaudeville engagements, which, while undertaken mainly from a financial viewpoint, will doubtless prove a considerable attraction for the men engaged. 158 ji9ie Musical Clubs Leaders Edwin C.

With but one exception the places left vacant by Hutchinson, Porter, Howard, Bragg, Nicolet, Jenny, Tarbell and Hogg have been well filled. There is still need of a clarinet, and a bass, and a successful year is looked forward to. The plan this year is to work on, not only the popular pieces whicli always find favor, but on selections from the new comic operas, and also some grand opera pieces and overtures. As a part of the Roister Bolsters on their trips, and likewise the musical clubs, the orchestra .will figure quite prominently by furnishing music for danc- ing whicli follows the entertainment in each case. The orchestra also furnishes music for social functions on the campus. The orchestra has always been supported by its members, but it seems that this branch of the musical clubs, so often called upon by the faculty and students should receive some support either from the college or the students. 162 = U ' . i ' y kjl C 163 1916 The Roister Bolsters The policy of the Roister Doisteis has been greatly changed this year. The reorganization has been snch that the society will be able to broaden out. and f-rom now on dramatics will be rnn on a strictly bnsiness basis. In order to do this it has been necessary to depart from the set ways of most college dramatic societies. We are able to do this throngh the hearty co- operation of several of the better known New York ])rodncevs, and from now on the society will produce plays that have been late Broadway successes. It is also hoped that several original plays that are now being written by the members of the society will also be produced in the near future. In staging these plays, all the electrical effects, costuming and so on, will lie the work and ideas of members of the society. The pi ' oduction of plays is entirely in tlie hands of the manager and his assistants, and no professional coaches are emploj ' ed. One phase of the rural jiroblem to-day is to enable the rural people to provide their own amusement, and to make it compare favorably with urban attractions. It is the aim of this society to train the undergraduates of -this college to handle this situation. It is also hoped that at some time the society may be able tt) imju ' ove rural drama in its broadest sense, and start a new school which will place it on as high a scale as any other division of the drama. ' When this is accomplished the reputation of the Koister Doisters is made. 164 -4 .■ -if-.

President Vice-President Treasurer Secretary Oratory and Debate While oratory and debate are activities uot strongly patronized by tlie students, they still hold an important place in the college functions. During the past two years the Public Speaking Council has been working hard to raise Aggie ' s reputation along these lines. Last season debates were arranged with Khode Island State and Clark College. A unanimous decision in the first in- stance was quite gratifying, and the fact that the Clark debate went against the team by a two to one vote was in no wise a discouragement. Enthusiasm among the students is the greatest help this branch of activi- ties could have. The rewards for the Varsity team, consisting of gold medals and money, the same for the Burnham Declamation and the Flint Oratory con- tests are well worth the energy expended. While the work of the Council is the leading item in this eil ' ort to put M. A. C. where she belongs in debate, it counts for little if not supported by the students, and hence the real responsibility for the success of the debating teams lies with the student body. 168 11916 Public Speaking Council TWENTY- SECOND FLINT ORATORICAL CONTEST AT THE COLLEGE CHAPEL Wednesday evening.

It was felt that as the college has grown, and as the interest in various branches of scientific agri- culture has increased, that these ought in some way to be separated so that men interested in some particular line of work could meet and discuss questions of common interest. It was decided to section the club rather than to split it into several small independent clubs, and at present four sectidus aie i)lanned, in- cluding Animal Husbandry, Pomology, Poultry and Gardening; the first three sections are now fully organized. Each section elects its own officers, but mem- bership is in the central club, and officers are elected in this club to have charge of the common interests and plans of all the sections. The executive committee consists of these officers together with the section chairmen and one faculty member. 174 11916 Stock Judging Team, 1914 Stock Judging Team This year the stock judging team cousistiug of Yhitmore, " 15, Moberg, ' 15, and Harvey, ' 15, captured first place at the Brockton fair in competition with teams from all the Agricultural Colleges of New England. This is the first time in recent years that the team has finished on top in any of the larger fairs. The M. A. C. team finished fully 300 points ahead of the Rhode Island team which was second. At the Dairymens ' Show in Chicago last October the team won second on Guernseys, third on Ayshires, and finished seventh in the contest beating out Delaware, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Cornell, Maryland, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Oregon and Arkansas. 175 i9ie ! ?,-,_ .M-7 Mrl.jjj - t ' tii- Landscape Aut Olul ' .

The purpose was to provide the men interested in landscape with the opportunity of hearing men who had done things in this and kindred lines. The following year the club became the Landscape Art Club, with social as well as technical aims. During these years many interesting lectures have been given by men of national reputation. The plans this year include a broadening of the social side of the club. Meetings will be held fortnightly, at which prominent men will address the club. Monthly " get togethers " will be held in the form of hikes, camp fire talks and so forth. Active membership is limited to upper classmen, but all men at all interested are urged to attend. 176 1916 Florists ' and Gardeners ' Club Florists ' and Gardeners ' Club Officers Wm. L. Doran Chas.

On October ft jSV 17, 1914. it had a paid membership of sixty-five men, and has added a great many since that date. It is doing a splendid work in the college, standing for clean college life, and the development of strong Christian leadei ' ship. This year the Association has organized under the cabinet system, and its committees are hard at work. Boys ' clubs are being conducted, foreigners are being taught English, service to the student body is being rendered, and deputa- tion teams are being sent out. With a new office in the old Trophy Boom in sight, the campus service branch of the work is about to take on a new lease of life. Here an employment bureau and information office are to be conducted. These are but a few of the activities of the organization. It has grown this year, and promises to grow more. It is boimd to advertise M. A. C. widely by its prominence in Y. M. C. A. circles. It is bound to help M. A. C. produce clean men, big men, leaders in city and rural life. Such is the object, and such it prays to accomplish. Country Life Club The Country Life Club The Collegiate Country Life Club of America is a national organization, founded by the alumni students of the colleges of the United States and Canada, in February, 1013. President Butterfleld is the president of the national organization ; such being the case it was thought quite fitting that a chapter of this club should be established at M. A. C. The local club was founded in April, 1914, by several of the students interested in the rural question. The aim of the entire organiza- tion is to promote the development of agriculture in its three distinctive aspects, namely as an industry, as a business, and as a mode of living. This club deserves the hearty support of all men interested in rural problems, for their work in the club will be of real value to them. Press Club The M. A. C. Press Club Officers Tyler S.

C. Press Club was formed to assist in obtaining greater publicity for the college. It is composed of students who report for the daily newspapers or other periodicals and those who have a desire to enter the journalistic field. The club accomjtlishes its purpose by sending out accurate and timely news, not only in athletics but in the other lines of work for which the college is well known. It maintains a bulletin board which is used as a clearing house for all news to which every member has access, thus preventing scoops or varia- tions in the news. The club was formerly organized on September 16, 1!)14, with a member- ship of ten men. The Press club is unique iu that its members are working for the good of the college, they are helping each other, and at the same time are being paid for their labors. ( Tii( ( ' ( )ii ' ici;i;s M.

Catholic Clnb was organized in 1911 by members of the senior class who felt the need of such an organization among the students. The primary reasons for its formation were that the Catholic men at college might become better acquainted with each other ; that they might take greater consideration of their spiritual welfare, and to foster the good will existing be- tween its members and those of other religious beliefs. Two meetings a month are held at which prominent laymen deliver short talks on topics of general in- terest or upon those more closely related to the Church and her history. The purpose for which the club was founded haA e been realized, and to-day every Catholic student recognizes the value of the club, and feels certain of a useful future for it among the many organizations at M.

Work has been started so that the twelfth hour rush in details and decoration may be avoided. Prom season, an open season for young ladies, generally lasting from Fri- day till Sunday, includes a hockey game, Glee Club concert, the Promenade, an informal tea, and a sleigh ride, weather permitting. The Promenade will be held Friday evening, February 12, 1915. The hockey game is played on the pond Friday afternoon. Usually a Glee Club con- cert in the cha iel follows.

" 17 Circulation Under its new name of " The Massachusetts Collegian " the College publi- cation by the undergraduate body starts uii its tweiity-tifth year, with policies that the board of editors believe to be broader than ever before in respect to the nse of the " Collegian as a means for bringing the Alumni and the under- graduate into closer relationship for the ultimate bettering of Aggie. 192 • fcjT 11916 Index Boakd The Index The function of a college annual is two fold; first to give the men of the college a first class resume of the previous .year, and second to advertise the college, in an indirect manner. To satisfy the class publishing the hook, and to favorably impress the disinterested reader, is the task of the editors. A college annual should be a subject of real interest to the entire college, and should not be considered as an inherent task of the class whose duty it is to publish it, to be commended if successful, or condemned if faulty. The col- lege year book reaches the entire college force, students and faculty ; the book becomes a subject of college pride, and to be entirely successful must receive enthusiastic support fi ' om all concerned. Such an attitude if manifested at M. A. C, giving the editors confidence and a worthy aim to work for, will pro- duce better Indexes for Aggie in years to come. 193 194 Qom y ' s m Kmtm r Program for Commencement 1914 Saturday, Jt:ne 13 3:00 P.

P. Wilcox The augel of Beelzebub, we are told in lore, Revolted ' gainst the Great One ' s terrific might. They struggled fiercely in that awful fight, Till o ' ercome at last they fall from Heaven ' s door. They struggled in vain their heights to regain. But clutching space they quickly downward fell, Disgraced by Heaven, to live in fearful Hell, An abode of horror; to live in Satan ' s reign, A place of pain, remorse, regrets unsatisfied, To such a place man is tempted by Satan ' s lure. Mere gold, in loss of which man cannot abide In peace ; it is the burden of the poor. Alas, alas, but for that upper strife. Each one would lead a peaceful, happy life. A i flnnpt to M ICnw By William E. Rvan Sweet Mary, when I ponder o ' er my books That I may get some recompense from toil, And learn just how to plant my father ' s soil; I think of you quite often, and your looks.

The accompanying poem from the Houston I ' ost answers the purpose: The other night Two festive gents 12) Got out their shoot Implements, And when thej had 13) Exchanged a few (4) Left a plate glass Shot through and thr ' ough: And now the people Congregate (5) Before that glass, And crowd and wait While the hot pave- (6) . Ien1 burns their soles To gaze upon 7) Those bullet holes; Look at those holes (s) For hours ! Gee whiz ! How queer this liuuuui Nature is. 242 1916 iFnnt 5 otPH (1) Notice that the author uses the terms " gents. " This is a strong indication that the author was a bachelor, who has his trousers pressed at a " Gents ' Tailoring " establishment, eats his meals at a " Gents ' Cafe, " and wears " Gents ' Furnishings. " (2) " Shoot, " — this is the archaic form of expression, the al)seuce of the " ing " emphasizes the imaginary ' trend of the poem. (3 Eead this line again and carefully note the ambiguous nature. Some critics argue that this means that they exchanged a few shots, and that the author purposely omitted the word " shots " to play upon the unsuspecting imagination of the reader. But Dr. Isaac Beelzebub Eabinovitz, of the Hibernian School of Oratory scouts this interpretation, for he calls attention to the fact that the men were " festive gents, " and the idea of fire arms is out of the question. The fact that they were " festive gents " indicates that they were playing pool and the " shoot implements " were simply the cues itsed to shoot the balls around the table. (4; ) Here again is the element of suspense so characteristic of the author, who in all probability was kept in a similar state by the use of treacherous suspenders. It is left to the reader to determine whether a " glass plate " or a " plate glass " window is meant. (5) " Before " meaning in front of. Of. Tennyson ' s " Idylls of The King, " line 2S0766S. (6j Note the soulful nature of this passage. Theologians declare the author is greatly in error to insinuate that mens ' souls are in their feet. T. Mientka asserts positively that the author ' s interpretation is correct, for he states that the shoes were sadly in need of repair when brought to him. The student should thoroughly understand the meaning of this passage, one of the most brilliant ever written at " white heat. " (7) " Bullet holes, " — This puts out the Israelite and his interpretation. This and the next line indicate that it was wholly a holey proposition, perhai;s more holy than righteous. (8) Should this be " for " or four hours? " For hours " indicates an in- liiiitiy long time. Four liours is ]ilen1y long enough for those whose soles are on fire. 243 1916 iExp?rtmi?nt 34B5 The Eradication of Dandelions, and Lawn Fertilization. C. Wellington. Apparatus: — HXO3; NajCOj; medi- cine dropper; lawn infested with dan delions. Procedure: — In the field infested with a rampant growth of the weed, I had my assistant go over the field and saturate each of the plants with a solu- tion of HNOg, applying the acid with an especially constructed medicine dropper. Care was taken not to con- taminate the surrounding grass with the acid. The effect on the taxacara was nitrifying. However, the acid could not be kept away from the real grass, so 1 calculated the amount of ISfasGOg necessary to neutralize the HNO3, and again sent my lab. assistant around to correct the acidity with some of the carbonate and the Adamkiewicz medicine dropper. The following reaction took jjlace: — 2HN03+Na2C03= 2NaN03+H2 COs. The formation of the NaNOg was of great fertilizing value, while the carbonic acid was of great use in the oxidation of insoluble matter to the soluble condition. Results : — The dandelions are still growing and tlie grass is dead. Ryan and Nash 244 11915 THE FRIDAY WAR CRY Vol. 1. Friday, October 23, 1914. Number 1.

" Nash — " The ' Last Duchess ' expresses to my mind a beautiful picture of a lady in the act of receiving peoples ' favors. This is really a monologue and might be fitted for the stage.

" Listen to me, " said the hermit, as he placed his lunch-hook on my bean, " whosoe ' er may find favor in the eyes of the Lord, and be delivered from these abominations which I shall enumerate here to you, will thrive and prosper all the days of his life.

But the Company of their Companions was distasteful to many of the frosh, and, apparently in .some Haste, they rode away in Motor Cars without saying Goodbye. This was not ill the best of Taste, it seemed to the Sophdinoi-es, so they followed to demand an Apology, but lost the Trail. A Walk- den, on rising Ground known as Sugar- loaf, discerned the fleeing Cars moving toward Montague, a licensed To m. The Sophomores immediately followed, but without Success. The next Day, a Saturday, found the Sophomores moving toward Hadley as till High drawn by an unseen Hand. No ' loii(l marred the homogeniety of the lilue. Tlie good Looks of the Invaders took the native Maidens by Storm, and 254 les. Ee- entered spirited those with Motors placed them in the Service of the Cause. A Eicker carried Eations on the Indian, and Sir Wentworth tooli to selling Magazines. As the Day declined, one from the House of Taber espied a frosli peering over the Casement of a Cook Car. He smote his Thigh, and the martial Cry, " Paramecium, " sti ' uck the Sk tainers swarmed to his Support, and able Yoemen of large Growth the Stronghold and extracted four Officers of the frosh. These were away. At a late Hour, another of the frosh came to the Eendezvous, and was put on File for future Eeference. It was a Queen of a Night. The Planet Orion slowly climbed into the Equinox, and Zenith blazed dully near the Chair. From Time to Time a Rooster reassured his trusting Herd with shrill Cries. The Sabbath was but an Hour old when a Whistle sounded up the Tracks, and another frosh. after some Eesistance, was put in Irons ancl delivered to the Pound. Once in a While a Breeze fanned the heated Watchers. Time wore on. as is its Habit in these Latitudes. Back at the Castle, Sir Little was incinerating the midnight Juice, and the automatic Chariot of Sir Wally Dodge was feverishly devouring the Gas along the Highways. The morning Star moved up a couple of Pegs and came to a Halt. A sharp Crack sounded up the Tracks, and a large Crowd emerged from among the Eolling Stock. A burly frosh, after being disarmed of an evil Mace, was given a Set of Eopes to wear and was placed in the Loft with the Best of the Squabs. It was many Hours later that a pretty Train, drawn by an En- gine with a shiny Bell, and bearing the main Body of the frosh, came to a Stop near the Cook Car. A hand- some frosh with elastic Step strode to the Car and beat upon the Gate. No answer. 2SS 1915 Someone tried to roll One, but the Makings rattled out. and lay in a little Heap upon a Tie. The Captives in the Loft, which was near By, set up a plaintive Wail, but Hand- kerchiefs of the best Irish Linen stopped the pitiful Sounds, and the Train, drawn by the Engine with the sliiny Bell, proceeded along the Bails towards Hartford. Darkness has again encased the Earth in Shadow. In the Loft Sir Gioiosa was reading the Autocrat, while Chisholm played a Game of Solitaire. The Guardsmen were not expecting Callers, as it was getting Late. Expensive Cars brought a goodly Nmnber of frosh, however, but they found the Door locked. A very pretty Engagement followed, and during the Action much Valor was displayed on both Sides, the giant Curran showing especial Enthu- siasm. Water from an imseen Moat was turned in, and Hostilities ceased, with six Officers in the Possession of the Sophomores. The frosh were there with the Pep, which is an important Ingredient of a banquet Season. 256 HADLEY. M. A. C. STUDENTS WET DOWN Fire Department Called Out to Cool Off the Ardor of Sophomores and Fresh- men. The Massachusetts agricultural col- lege freshmen and sophomores had an encounter on West street in Hadley Mon- day evening, which is said to have been an exciting affair until the ardor of the combatants was cooled by a deluge turned on from a convenient hydrant by the Hadley fire department. So far as known, the only severe wound of battle was a broken bone in the hand of one of the warriors. The affair is said to have resulted from the capture of several of the officers of the freshman class, who were taken Saturday and held in hand- cuffs and other bonds in barns in Hadley Center and North Hadley until it was too late for them to attend the banquet of the freshman class in Hartford Monday afternoon. The freshmen returned in force from the banquet Monday evening, and a collision between the freshmen and sophomores, about 30 on a side, occurred on West street about 9;30, which looked so much like real war that the citizens were alarmed, until they bethought them- selves of the expedient of wetting down the battle. The scheme worked to a charm, and the bedraggled students im- mediately took themselves off. 257 1915 EmxB, iliiul Q mvB This is a tale of the banquet The Freshman class( ?) had decreed. (A wonderful, wondrous banquet, A sumptuous elegant feed ) . They up and made a committee — Lawrence, Birchard, and Smith — They did their best and finest But the banquet proved a myth. The ossifei-s went in a frei, iht I ' ar — Bnckman, Patton, i Iai;uire — But a fight was just then started That roused the Sophomores ' ire. It resulted in sundry captures; And Seventeen lost their men. So, when they got down to Hartford, They wanted them back again. They started back to Hadley — Keegan, Sauter, and IJoss — With seventeen other huskies To try to redeem their loss. They found the officers ' quarters, They broke the stout barn door; They were bruised and kicked and pounded. But still came back for more. But the Hadley Fire I)ei)artment Was strictly on the job ; They brought their only fire hose And cleaned out the fighting mob. Soaked and drenched, they spluttered And pounded the empty air. And found, when the scrap was over The officers still were there. This is a tale of the bancjuet The Freshman class had decreed. (A wonderful, wondrous banquet, A sumptuous, elegant feed. ) But, Seventeen, we beat you And you proved a most worthy foe. And the only thing we regret is That we ' ll not have another go. 258 ' M I I l 11 1,1 .t5 . ' ■|»(ii ' IniKDON Holding Up South 259 i9ie lo a Kttp Kim iFrnm ®l|f trlfi 3 ag as rendered by T.

" He is sore today, " we muttered, " hist, he ' s opening the door. " Only this and nothing more. AJi, distinctly I remember, it was in the bleak December, And each separate frosted member of the Physics Czar was hoar. And his sealskin cap was shining; and a scarf his neck entwining. Made the class room cease devining what made Billy feel so sore. " " Tn-as the cold, that loves to cluster where the heat waves are no more. " Closyerbooks. " (He said no more.) And the spiteful, point-blank snapping of those words my nerve was sapping; Thrilled me — filled me with fantastic terrors often felt before. So that now. to still the beating of my heart, I sat repeating, " He will tell us how the heating of a bit affects the bore. And the subject will console him, for all cold things make him sore. ' Twill be this and nothing more. " But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token, CTwas the silence that the sailors say precedes the tempest ' s roar) For he rose and said to me, " Please give the law of Archimedes ; At what temperature does air freeze; can you raise it any lower? " But I found, on search for answers in my littered upper floor. Darkness there, and nothing more. Not the least obeisance made he: not a minute stopped or stayed he; But the pent-up maledictions on my head he did outpour. Nothing soothing then he uttered, and he talked so fast he stuttei-ed. And the class looked scared and muttered, " We have heard that line before. " Then the raving Czar of Physics, with a mighty gesture swore I should take it — evermore. " Prophet, " thought I, " thing of evil, prophet still if prof, or devil. True it is that some among us are to take this coarse course o ' er. " (And his eyes had all the seeming of a demon ' s that is dreaming. And the Tungsten o ' er him streaming threw his shadow on the floor.) " Some of us are doomed to listen, as you rant and pace the floor. To your ravings — evermore. " And the luckless ones are sitting, still are sitting, still are sitting In the seats reserved for P. G. ' s, near the lab ' ratory door. Yes, of course I am among them, for the Prophet he has stung them — • ' Twere far better had he hung them to the Physics Building door, Where the air keeps getting denser, perfumed by his hand-rolled censer; Where his signal-fire burning tells the world a class is o ' er. We can fool him — nevermore. 267 i9ie A ©ragr ij in Nttt Arts " Why I Flunked Eii -lish " Villan— The Corpse H. E. Smith Hero — The D— n Fool W. E. Ryan Heroine — Rosalind E. S.

An old tradition, in- teresting but without foundation, fixes the blame for this act on a certain J. J. Jeffries Amherst, Bart., who came to these hostile shores in the Shamrock 4, long before the year of the little apples. J. J. J. was advertising manager of Colonial Future Fame Companj , at one time a flourishing concern with inter- locking directorships in several historical associations. He was also one of the minor characters in Shaltespeare ' s comedy " Sabrina. " Amherst is prettily situated near the Amherst Post Office. It is composed entirely of siib irbs, which are very attractive to tired vacationists who go there to recuperate and attend occasional classes. There are two seasons in Amherst — School and Summer. At the end of summer the population returns and the weeds are burned from in front of the To ti Hall. The town is bounded on the noi ' th by Brooks Farm, on the east by a prostrate two-rail fence known as the C. V., on the south by Mt. Holyoke, and on the west by a twelve-cent fare to Hamp. Clyde Fitch and Noah Webster stayed in Amherst for a while as the result of not betting on the right candidate, and Eugene Field established the Safety First slogan by leaving the village at a tender age, having learned from obser- vation that death in the place was only a question of time for even the strongest and most robust. Amherst is noted for blind tigers, poor food, handsome shade trees, bone glasses, and quiet cemetaries. The principal industries of Amherst are fishing poles, straw lids, fussing, moving furniture, looking wise, and writing home for money. iop? Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it. Advertise in the Index ; it identifies you. The Index is worth the money you pay. Ask the man who owns one. It ' s the good apple tree that gets the most clubs throwii at it. Shout your wares through the Index. It ' s the squeaky wheel that gets the grease. Calves may come and calves may go, but the bull goes on forever. Know something about everything, and everything about something. Don ' t dodge difficulties ; meet them, greet them, beat them. 270 11916 ' 32 MASSflCHUSEm Olitrrau s (ElioruB One summer I thought I would i) to the country To spend my vacation — I needed the rest.

Some from among you, friends, bolder, perhaps, than the rest comma may say, " Let us delay no longer; come what come will, let us have at this awful thing; out upon it. " But not so fast. Precipitation is the thief of time. Go slowly be- fore approaching so steep an intellectual hill as the one we are now preparing to ascend. Perhaps, by way of preparing you for the shock which is sure to follow, a hint of the tremendous import of the revelations which are about to hit the civilized world between the eyes would be only fitting at this time. Dinnis, turn that ci-ank. The day was tempestuous. Lightenings flashed from the cerulean sky. A young man with a ghastly smile flickering across his map stood before the chapel door. In his hand was a black note book, nine inches by eleven. His shoes were full of feet. He glanced timidly at the tower clock, and then collecting chronological data from his own paperweight, burst into a fit of demonical laughter. Entering the ancient pile, he walked into the library to study his lessons. Light from the setting sun struggled in through windows dimmed by the dust of innumerable years and lay in a ragged puddle upon the hobnailed floor. Over in the corner a crowd was flghting for places around the latest issue of the Contemporary Review. Unable to endure the sight, he sloped into the stackroom. A game of tag was in full swing through the aisles, and two seniors were whistling " School Days. " The tenor was doing very well. Several female assistants in the oflflce were pluming themselves, gazing out of the 276 1916 windows the while into the middle of next week. The Man behind the Mask was seated at the office phone, kidding centi ' al. The only quiet person was a sophomore who was seated in the shadow of a book- case glancing furtively at the illustrations in Grey ' s Anatomy. Someone upstairs threw the organ pump into low, and the vibration shook the glass from a picture of a group of grave old men, bearded with moss and in garments shiny, labelled " College Life Board, 1775. " At the sound, the asistant at the desk shifted in his seat and snored in a different key. Pussy-foot slammed by on his way to the reserve shelf. The piano above gave out, and the College Band began to accompany the trombone, but Nubs lit into his scales and drowned them out. Tabby sat on the floor in front of the card index, reading German chemical terms for breathing exercises. Itano and Van Suchtelen struck up " Hoch der Mikado, " each in his nativ e tongue. Some- one cut out the muffler on the radiators, and Whispering Smith yelled, ' ' Here comes Barney Oldfield. " Sliver came pacing in, shouting, " Phi Kappa Phi this way. " He wanted to take out the new fitty-six-pound dictionary, but it was on file in the basement under Harper ' s for the year 1896. Stone eased in soon after, and began to pick leaves at random from the shelves, but was told to beer little more careful what he did. Baldy wanted to know about best cellars, admitting that it was rather a novel appleication to make. Sprague tiptoed in, and inquired for a book on genealogy. Johnny O. tried to help him out, and said that he hadn ' t seen any family tree in the room, this not being a branch librai " y, and wanted to know weather it was fair to add that there were plenty of square roots round, or knot. The Bloke next walked in, arm in arm with his crutches, and ordered " Eyes right, " but Woof-woof (who always maintained that out of psych, is out of mind) argued that he was wrong. Just then some- body climbed onto the keyboard of the sweet old organ and began to practice ground and lofty tumbling. With a wild whoop of despair the young man who had come to study his lessons made a bolt for the door, which to say the least was very thoughtful of him. 277 1915 3 at tltf aakr of Jprnl i£. ilJ.

With minor exceptions all land which is to be put under cultivation next year should be plowed before freezing. Note that the ground should be plowed before freezing, as this method takes care of any difficulties that might be encountered in plowing after the land is like a stone quarry. It is neither necessary nor desirable to turn furrows smooth and flat as in spring plowing, for if the land is quite rough the frost will be more effective in breaking up the soil and reducing it to a fine powder. For the bene- fit of the uninitiated we would say that the term " spring plowing, " used above does not refer to springs or cushions attached to the plow, but to the time of year when the opera- tion is done. The poultry dept. is of the opinion that pullets should begin laying freely this month. They must be carefully sorted out, the most promising layers put in the laying pens, and the others in the fattening pens. Fountain pens are the best means for water- ing the birds. Treat your hens well; re- member that a sitting hen will not stand for much. The dept. of pomology now comes out with the statement that the apple harvest now demands attention. Be careful when going about the vineyard that you are not attacked by animals; there are a lot of gra(y) apes among the vines. Seeds for the determination of the life history of a one year old Baldwin apple tree can be obtained from the N. Amherst cider mill. For any further information regarding this tree, " ask the seed.

The winter affords many enjoyments to mankind in general, but to no one class of men more than to the assiduous sophomore, who now sits down at his leisure(?), sur- sounded by all the comforts and necessities of life, namely, a pungent pipe and some Tuxedo, and a place to lay his feet, and pleasinglv( ?) spends the long winter even- ing in social converse, as by reading some useful and entertaining author, Milton or Spenser, or in fact any of the ancient proto- types eulogized by the pedagogues of the English dept.

Superior to vernal joys, these permanent pleasures of the intellect are in vigor, when those are faded and no more. We hesitate to renew these suggestions, for the occasions of reading and studying to- gether, besides being a source of annoyance and suspicion, will always be looked upon with a flood of unutterable feelings and emo- tions which sweep o ' er the bulwarks of our souls, ending in the last expiring wail, " My kingdom for a brick. " Many alterations and repairs are likely to be required about the farm at this time of year. The poultry quarters should be fur- nished with feather beds; calks put on the cows ' hoofs so that cowslips (not caltha paiusfris), will be less frequent; a box stall put in the horse barn, etc. 1915 ifanuartJ, 1914 I have in mind a worthless coot Whom thirst has quite railroaded; He aims high but he can not shoot Because he ' s always loaded. — Houston Post.

Many important things fol- low which must be attended to this month or next year. You are likely to find the wife ' s opinion and judgment of great assistance in these matters, especially if he is a class ahead of you. Ask him what you had better plug up on and what can be left until the night before the exam. Ask his advice about arranging your cribs in the classrooms, and let him show you how to prepare them in the most compact and accessible form. Use your bean as auxilliary to the cribs, and be sure to take your briefs with you on leaving the exam., as they might excite suspicion. Truly, these are the times that try mens ' souls. 285 1916 J ' -;-.--.,-„i lT ' ' jLjiL M.

Try a steak over at Dick ' s some night or a cockroach cocktail at Eddies grill, and some soft throat wash for that dusty feeling. Freshmen would do well to get a letter of introduction to Profes- sor Hasbrouck from some influential person, and then study like time, for trig is a queer subject. Sophomores should avoid electing anything with which there is any work con- nected, and should cast about for a good legible set of Aggie Industry readings and maps.

The orchard must be pruned, un- profitable trees grafted and regrafted. Some farmers object to the use of the bridge graft, because they say it affords caterpillars an eas} ' passage over the rough places on the tree trunk. San Jose should be gotten after with a spray pump. Instructions for repair- ing a broken pump may be obtained from the physics dept. for a O. Hydraulic rams are not suitable for spraying. Herpicide is the remedy, apply in a fine snray. The first batch of chickens should be started in the incubator about the middle of the month. Anv unfertile eggs may be gotten rid of at the dining hall, where they may be dropped on toast without injury. Turkeys, ducks, and geese should lay well this month. Refrain from using profanity when working in the hen yard; fowl talk is so prevalent there anyway. In making ligs grow, much depends upon seeing them three times a day, scratching their backs to make them gentle, and watch- ing closely to see if they need a little wood ashes or charcoal, a drop of lard or kero- sene on their backs to free them from lice, or a change of diet to make their appetite keen. 191M -.4 - EX Atinl. 1314 There ' s always something to brag of; E ' en when a fellow melts; I ' ll bet I ' ve got more prickly heat Than anybody else. —Ilousto,, Post.

This might be called the planting month, for the setting of trees and grafts falls on this month. The professor of horticulture now takes the opportunity to make his annual pun upon the word " graft, " and it will please him if the class indulge in at least moderate laughter. Throwing seeds in the greenhouse should now occupy the attention of all serious-minded students, but care should be taken to avoid striking the prof with misdirected ripened fertilized ovules. In the class orchard work, grafting wax makes delightful material for modelling into many curious and bizarre forms and for tossing playfully about. This is also the month for class tree planting, and participants in this sport should bear in mind the fact that if per- sonal irrigation is indulged in to too great an extent, it detracts from the solemn digni- ty of the occasion. 289 i9ie l-iL- AJlM - _JLJ — L_J .

Harlow Furniture, Rugs and Draperies 19 Center St. Northampton Next to First Church Massachusetts Agricultural The Massachusetts Agricultural College is a public service iustitu- tiou, the function of which is to benefit the agriculture and rural life of the state and incidentally that of the nation. In the fulfilment of its mission the College undertakes the work of Investigation, Eesident Instruction and Extension Service. Investigation follows three distinct lines: (1) scientific research, through which are discovered new laws governing the growth of plants and animals; (2) experimentation, which seeks to ascertain the best methods of applying science to practice; and (3) the agricultural survey or inventory of agricultural conditions and possibilities. The purpose of Instruction given to resident students is to prepare them for the agricultural vocations and also to train them in the princi- ples of good citizenship. Students pursuing the regiilar four years ' course may specialize in any of the following named departments: Agriculture Landscape Gardening Agronomy Pomology Animal Husbandry Agricultural Chemistry Dairying Economic Entomology Poultry Husbandry Plant Physiology and Pathology Floriculture Microbiology Forestry Agricultural Education Rural Social Science Undergraduate courses are also ollered in a large number of depart- ments the work of which is not arranged as a " major. " The Graduate School admits college graduates for advanced study in agriculture, botany, chemistry, entomology, horticulture, mathematics, microbiology, veterinary science, zoology, and rural social science. XVI College, Amherst, Mass. Various short courses and conferences are held at the college, among these being the following: Winter School of Agriculture. Farmers ' Week. Summer School of Agriculture.
