Burton Morton Cassidy -,.„, -v. - ®n the Anai 1 iHrn in Bttxntt This ndex is well dedicated ; never was one better. Previous volumes, after the usual manner, have been kindly and generously dedicated, as an expression of appreciation and goodwill, to individuals. Uniformly they have been dedicated to some friend, teacher, leader, inspirer, — men who, by their helpful and unselfish spirit or by the power of rare personal qualities, or both, have made a deep and lasting impression upon the mind and heart of the Index class. On the other hand, here is a volume dedicated to a large group of Aggie men, undergraduates and alumni, which at this moment has reached the proud total of more than four hundred, a percentage not exceeded by many, if any, col- leges in the country. To this group, part of whom we have never seen, the 1919 Index is dedicated with an affection which cannot be expressed as a humble tribute, a feeble intimation, of the great regard and heartfelt respect in which we hold them. As you sweep forward from campus and home to answer the great call, no wonder that we, who because of age or of youth are unable to join you, look upon you as trans- figured, for transfigured you verily are by the whole-souled response you have made to the spell of this mighty conflict. No wonder we look upon you in rapt and reverent admiration as you pass by ; no wonder whenever we think of you, we feel like taking off our hats in profoundest respect and honor! You are real heroes, you men, and our heroes too! You will forever more, we have faith to believe, take rank beside the men of Mara- thon and the men of Gettysburg and the thousands of splendid souls who have fought for the great cause during the centuries intervening between those momentous days. This will be true if you never know battle on any field, for already you have manifested the same indomitable spirit, the same high consecration to great purposes as have characterized the world ' s best in every supreme test. It is entirely fitting that we should try to honor you even in this meagre way. In every way it is fitting that we should try, for what a wonderful measure of honor have you brought to us and what lustre have you added to the good name of our Alma Mater! We fully realize, however, that in no way can we pay you your full and just reward. " We cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow " your long list of names. Your conduct has been so splendid and fine that it is " beyond our power to add or to detract. " It is for us, as it was for those others, to dedicate ourselves to the same task and to follow your example to the last ; to walk in your foosteps along the hard, difficult, and long road that leads to the ultimate goal of liberty, to take our places by your side when the time comes, and, if need be, to yield with you the last full measure of devotion. It is in this spirit and with this fixed determination that the 1919 Index is dedicated to you who since last spring have so gloriously and nobly led the way. God bless you. Z—tZsUsT cC Yl .

R.chards- Chapma SENIOR FOOTBALL TEAM History ttt tlj? Dtakut You ask us for a history, but our thoughts are not of the past, they leap forward unbidden into the near unfath- omable future. At our elbows are " Collegians " containing the names of fourteen men of our number who have been selected for the officers ' training camp. Statistics also show twenty-one of our original class to be commissioned officers, and forty-five more to be in the service in other capacities. Eleven of these have already gone over. We see the past only as it reflects upon the uncertain present, and the veiled future. The memories of losing our freshman rope pulls and football game, and sophomore basketball, rifle, and banquet scrap, were always over- shadowed by those of winning freshman baseball, basket- ball and banquet, sophomore rope pulls, picture scrap, and football; but even coupled with thoughts of the Junior Prom and " tree-planting, " and our victory over all comers includ- ing the faculty in interclass football this fall, the whole is dim and unimportant. We see our Freshman days happy and scarcely ruffled by the gigantic conflict. Our Sophomore year heard only an occasional grumble over the increasing cost of living. But the Junior year began to bear in upon us a more personal interest in the struggle. It changed the whole face of that third term. Eagerly we looked for something to do in behalf of the great cause, and tumbled pell-mell into service, — mostly agricultural. There will be few who can forget those days of indecision, the upset condition which followed the forcing home of the news that this war was to be ours. For the most part, the sacrifice of the term was more than repaid in experience. Yet, in the following fall only 57 of our men returned to us. A feeling of restlessness pervaded the class, and still does. Why? One of the greatest questions that ever faces men confronts us now. " What is my duty — await the draft, or enlist? " These are questions each man is answering for himself, as his conscience and judgment dictate. As a result, we are losing men from oui classes, one at a time, slowly but surely. When we see their places vacant, we know one more decision has been made. Now it is that we merge ourselves into the common cause, and lose our own indi- vidual identities that future histories may tell of how America fought for Democracy and won.

At the time of going to pr to enter military service. February 23, the 23 Landsc. ■n had -i 2 K left colle dur the present year J u n l o R 5 iutttor Gllass SftBtunj This is an unusual year ! Piexy hinted this to us last fall, the price of our board strengthened our convictions, and the blustering weather of December, January and Feb- ruary removed all shadows of doubt. It is a year of the unheard of, the improbable, The unexpected; it is a year of speculation and unrest ; it is a year when any shell game proposed by the powers that be, will " get by. ' For in- stance, we calmly burn wood when the Fuel Administration refuses us coal ; we cheerfully accept an abreviated system of concentrated, pre-digested education which does no more harm nor good than any previous system ; we are deprived of our soft chapel seats, making sleep more difficult; and, unheard of in the annals of the institution, we submit with- out a murmur to ten hours of drill per week. These few things prove the " unusuahty " of the year. How different from the fall of 1915 when the class of 1919 entered M. A. C. as a record-breaking class with an enrollment of well over two hundred. The college was prospering, and on the upward road of progress and success. We had the greatest football team of years, a team that could play Harvard to a standstill. All other activi- ties, athletic and otherwise, were expanding and going on at full tilt. Compare all this with college as it has been this year, minus a varsity football team, and enrollment of one-half size, and far less activities. In the old days 1919 was " The Class. " In athletics, debating, shooting, etc., her teams excelled. With two exceptions she won every 1918-1919 interclass contest. She was the first class to produce teams that could defeat a certain well-known nearby Acad- emy in all sports. A thousand times since then she has well proven her worth. But now she has been reduced to nearly one-half her initial enrollment and daily the old guard grows small. This decrease and the unusual year have been brought about by a cause which we know well, and which is brought more closely to us as our college and class- mates go to take their part in the great struggle. It remains with us who stay, to uphold the spirit and ideals of M. A. C. and 1919, and when we go forth they will help and strengthen us for the need of the Nation.

" Stubby " hails from the Green Mountain State, the home of big things. However, the boy ' s greatness lies not in the 5 ft. 4 in. he boasts of. but his ability to " be there " when 1919 needs him. It is no secret that he is a great admirer of the gentler sex — from a distance — but it would surprise most of us if he didn ' t pick a winner.

He has quietly battled his way to an unquestion- able standing among his classmates, both with his bean and his muscle. So far as we are able to find out, he has selected dairying as his idea of a perfect life. Should he ever forsake the " lowing kine, " we fear he would before long grow lonesome and reseek the wilds of South Hadley.

This year he has been playing in the interclass games, and if you have seen them, you have seen the reaction. He is also the exchange mail man and in that way, though by no effort of his own he has become one of the most important men on the campus.

It seems paradoxical that fog should originate in the hills of New Hampshire and gravitate to the North Shore, but such is the case with this particular Fogg. Finally a stiff sea breeze blew him up to M. A. C. and thus far not even the cold north wind of this section has been able to dislodge him from the Connecticut Valley. However, during his first two years here his nature carried him to such extremes that his folks deemed it wise to send his brother along to stabilize him. When he drifts from this valley we expect him to settle down, as real fogs do, only to rise in a short time to ethereal realms of success. 40 OTillarii tKylr iffmtrlj " Bill " " None but himself can be his parallel " Worcester Q.

Still, the time ihat he doesn ' t put in there, or holding a house-parly with a broom in Clark, is applied to studies, witness his success in that line.

This summer he was a " bugologlst " and he has now decided that Doc Fernald cannot do without him, so is majoring in this su bject, he will no doubt find a new blister on trees caused by water boiling in the hot sun. iEmtl GUttttmt $rrrg " Industry is the soul of business and the fyeynole of prosperity " Acushnet 15 Hallock Street Fairhaven High School December 9, 1896; Agricultural Economics. If the crisp morning air will sharpen the wit, then we can account for the radiant g on which surrounds Perry. When going to high school he had to bicycle five miles, and at Am- herst as a Hallock Streeter, the brisk morning walk to the cam- pus certainly filed his wit to the sharpest point. It is hard work to put one over on Perry. His power of digestion is nearly to infinity, for he has devoured a great many books and has even survived old Taussig. In his quiet way he is prepared to try and solve the economic problems of the day. 3Gr2imi Suattr Prtrram " Shows most true " Pete " eltle when hi is checked. " Brooklyn, N.

On a bright autumn morning in ' 96, " Pete " first made his appearance on this terrestrial ball. Then nothing was heard of him until he signed the Aggie register— LeRoy Duane Peter- son, Brooklyn, N. Y., whereupon the sage said, " Let college start, for here is one who will be king. " Such has " Pete " shown himself to the class in baseball, football and basketball. He is also an artist at waxtreading and can sometimes be seen executing this art at the Informals. Occasionally, on a moon- light night he is seen drifting " over the river. " In choosing Pom. as his major, " Pete " will be at his best, for he has always been a high climber. 52 Itfrciirrirk armubniUu ' ijtltrrjuutt " The Scepter, Learning, Physic, must All follow this, and come to dust.

This may account for his some- what somnolent attitude in the morning. Athletically the most strenuous thing he ever did was to get up in time for breakfast. True, he will never make a farmer or a chemist, but we predict he will become a learned professor some day. Karl 3IuUuh f tie " Charlie Green, 2nd. " " What ' s in a name?

If he fails in this attempt, a little secluded farm down in Nova Scotia will suit him best, where for six months a year he can teach his little " Dinnys " how to play hockey like Rosses, and we pity the little Scots that get up against them.

When Stafford donned his little green-buttoned cap with the rest of us, he started right in to satisfy his thirst for knowledge, but the thirst is still unquenched. This rather quiet chap has not happened to come before the public eye very often, even by the popular Dean ' s Board method. But the greatest mys- tery is how such a fellow with a ready smile can seem so immune to the allurements of the fair ones.

You all did greet not long ago A most ungainly bunch of men, Who did but makee you smile. Of course, pea green, they were, But, yet, not quite as bad as some, For they showed grit And took their paddling well. Against great odds, they lost the fight On freshman field, clad in night array. But ne ' er dismayed they came back strong ; Refused to sip the water of the pond And stayed their ground with loss of but few feet. In all sports against the Sophs, except one. Was ' 20 beaten, but not done. In slush and mud for minutes two Six ' 20 men against six ' 19 pulled. The result, great, ' 19 ' s buttocks cold And soiled from dragging on the slippery earth. Acknowledged beaten in most athletic sports New plays were made to gain ' 20 fame. A tax was laid, seven hundred bones, Upon our back, to finish the field So well begun by men before. Withm a week it all was paid. And honor duly placed where it belonged. Finals came and went again Some men went home, to try anew. Winter came and ' 20 then. Settled down to bone some more. Again finals came and disappeared, A few more left, but very few. Then came spring and with it war. And ' 20 heeded well the call. Men went on farms and tilled the soil Until the new year came again. The frosh fell well before the slaughter great, Not one of six contests could they win. Our glory complete, we tried to work, To learn a bit of Physics and of Zoo, Of An Hous, of Botany, of Chemistry and French. We must speed up, they coaked it on. A tangled mess was on our minds, and thoughts Of one way tickets soon mixed in. But we worried on and did our best, Praying some, that the wrath of the Gods, And Demi-Gods appease somewhat and that They reason some and give us credit. For our hard attempts. The term is closed and now ' 20 starts anew, Realizing mistakes and vows to do her best In the present strife. To do her part, if possible more; To serve full well, the need as felt. To grit her teeth and plow through strong. That always hereafter as heretofore. She ne ' er gave up, or stopped to snore. SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS Warren E. Dewing . . . President Carroll W.

At the time of to enler military servi ting to press, February 23, the had left college during the present ye ESHMOi felrnmr to tltr iFrrslimrn You come to us. Oh Freshmen, at the time of a crisis in the existence of our college as well as our country. We have plunged ourselves into a terrible war and on each man in the United States, because of this, lies a deepened re- sponsibility. On you, who have hardly started as yet, on the road to specialized knowledge, does not come now the brunt of the burdens of the war in its active phase, but, in time, if Democracy and Right have not conquered, this work of righting the world ' s wrongs will come on you. But, let us consider that as non-existent or at least in the far future. Do you realize that it is your class whose num- bers are least likely, soon, to be affected? It is to you, therefore, that the whole college turns for team-work and co-operation. Other freshmen classes have been expected to do nothing in particular but learn from their friends the upperclassmen the way Aggie expects her men to conduct themselves, and the way her men show their mettle in all encounters. But you are not given this privilege. It is a common saying that the circumstances make the man and we are working under the sup- position that this is true. In a time like the present, when everyone is stirred to action in brain as well as muscle, we give you added shares in the carrying on of our college work and consider you as men already rather than men in the making. You have been denied the greater part of the college activities which unite, in the loyal spirit of Aggie men, all classes, and have been given, to replace it, the activities of the class, but notwithstanding this, it must be with a cheer for Aggie that the work goes on. Our history is one to which hardly more than a conclusion is yet to be written ; but yours has for introduction the fire of enthusiasm of an inspired age and is yet to be con- tinued. Put into it all this inspiration and make Aggie proud of 1 92 1 ! FRESHMAN CLASS OFFICERS Wallace L. Whittle James W. Alger Miss Sarah W. Goodstone Justin McCarthy . Julius Kroeck Richard A.

This ancient and honorable custom of M. A. C. passed into the land of forgotten joys with a glorious victory for the class of 1919. Throughout the year the sophs had us labelled as a " pepless " bunch, and this surprise took them completely off their feet. Since then the subject has been avoided by most of the ' 18 men. The election of the class officers was held in the early spring, at the old fair grounds. It was nearly twelve o ' clock on a starless night. Each man, as he came in, was required to give the password, and the election was most uncannily mysterious, as the freshmen filed by a single candle to deposit their votes. The Banquet Season opened Saturday, the first of May. Sunday night at 12 o ' clock half the class met at Leverett ; the other half was to assemble at the Hadley bridge in Hamp on the following day. Most of the excitement fell to the crowd at Leverett. There were 63 who met there in a freight car. Starting about midnight and led by " Doc " Williams, they mads their way for several miles across country, through sand, brush, swamps, and brooks, to a tobacco barn in the midst of the " zone. " They arrived about 2.30 A. M. and remained hidden for the next twelve hours. That barn had perfect ven- tilation, and as the night was no summer eve, few got any sleep. In the, the sympathetic owner of the barn brought them some bread and coffee. This disappeared in no time, but tasted better than a banquet. A lookout was kept for sophomores, but of course they suspected nothing and were far away. Towards noon three laborers were seen coming across the field toward the barn, who, as they approached, proved to be three of the class officers who had adopted that disguise to cross the zone. Soon after, the crowd left the barn and escorted the officers to the boundaries of the zone, and ;hen started for Cooley ' s house in Sunderland, where an officer was hidden, besieged by sophomores. The fellows, after being shut up in a barn twelve hours, naturally wanted excitement. The crowd wasn ' t dressed for Sunday school, and would have looked well as a Roman mob. No wonder the sophomores looked on the advancing throng with fear. The sophs stood their ground, however, and soon the door- yard was filled with struggling groups. In the midst of the scrap. King, the officer, ran out of the door, and picking his way through the fighting mob made his getaway. The battle was soon over, but many carried away souvenirs. Some had beautifully colored optics, others bled freely from the nose, one freshman sported two pairs of handcuffs the enemy had snapped on him, and another had broken his hand on a soph ' s head. The crowd then went across lots, after stopping at a farmhouse for first aid io the wounded, and to borrow a file for the handcuffs, to the railroad tracks which they followed down to Cushman. Here they took a train and rode in style to Amherst. They walked to a place a little below he center, where they met another gang of sophomores who tried to prevent them from boarding a trolley en route to Holyoke. The freshmen were again victorious, and in due time reached Holyoke. The natives there turned to stare at the bunch as they waited for the West field car. They probably thought a shipload of immigrants or a gang of gunmen had arrived. When they arrived at Westfield, they found the rest of the class, and after trying to remove some of the effects of a couple of fights and a night spent in a tobacco barn, they all sat down to the festive board about 10 P. M. The sophomores captured but one officer, Batchelder, and when they saw ihey were to get no more, he was allowed to go. The other officers escaped very easily. Thus the whole class was assembled at one of the greatest freshmen banquets ever held. After the banquet, at which no one held back, for most of them had not eaten for six or eight hours. Prof. Machmer gave them some good advice, and " Kid " Gore added a few words, and then the officers told their experiences of the past few days. The freshmen started back to Amherst in two special cars at I o ' clock. It was a happy, but some- what sleepy bunch, that arrived in Amherst at half past three that May morning. 97 JJuterfratrntttu QUwfrrrnrr Howard L. Russell, Pres. Robert L. Boyd, Vice. -Pre Stewart P.

A majority of last year ' s " M " men did not return to college, having gone into war service. Captain Weeks is a captain of infantry at Camp Devens, Bob Holmes and Lewis Spaulding are second lieu- tenants, " Ras " Pond is in the Amublance Corps in France, and " Goo " Grayson is in the National Army. Fraser, Maginnis and Moynihan of last year ' s squad are second lieutenants. In place of Varsity football an interclass series was played off, the senior class winning the championship. The members of the Faculty challenged the seniors for the championship of the College and were defeated in a post-season game. Chapman, who was to be manager of football this fall, has been made manager of basketball. BASKETBALL Last winter, after a lapse of eight years. Varsity Basketball was taken up. Under the coaching of " Kid " Gore, a good team was whip- ped together and a successful season carried through. Emory Grayson ' 17 was captain and Newell Moorehouse ' 17 manager. The regular team consisted of Pond and McCarthy forwards, E. Grayson center, F. Grayson and Sedgwick guards. The team was well equipped with sub- stitutes, among them Squires, Irving, and Popp forwards, Hawley and Hagelstein centes. King and Parkhurst guards. ;e resulted in victories. Three of the games were ter, being opposed by Yale, Dartmouth, is, two ties, and three defeats were the team and Captain " Dave " Buttrick de- point; D.

There were few veterans on th serves great credit for his excellent coaching. The M. I. T. and Williams games were played on the campus. The Williams game was played as the prom game. The team had a fine trip to West Point and defeated the soldier boys under freezing conditions. Our old rivals in Springfield received two thorough trimmings. The team was made up as follows: Buttrick (Capt.), goal; L. Ro: Richardson, left wing; Stiles, center; Chisolm, rover; Seavey, right w Hunnewell. RELAY TEAM The Relay team of the past winter season had a very successful season under the coaching of Lawrence Dickinson, winning two out of four races. The races lost were well run and were a credit to the team. Pratt ' 17 was elected captain. The remainder of the team was composed of Bainbridge ' 18, Clough ' 17, and Yesair ' 19. Lyons ' 18, Weeks ' 18, and Wilcox were the substitutes. Yesair. as a new candidate, did exceptionally good work. Varsity Relay was supplemented by a very good schedule of Interfraternity Relay races. Phi Sigma Kappa winning first place in the series. On March II, a close and exciting interclass track meet was held and two records were broken by Bell ' 17 and Goff ' 19. BASEBALL The baseball season started with a fine schedule, and the best of prospects as far as material was concerned.. Captain Day, left field; " Rog " Chambers, second base, and " Steve " Richardson, catcher, were the only veterans from the previous year ' s team, but formed a strong nucleus. McCarthy, Westman, Maginnis, Pond, Yesair, and Faxon played consistently. Westman pitched the majority of games and came through in fine style. After defeating Trinity, the team received a bad setback from Brown. The next week, however, on the campus with Capt. Day making a hit on every trip to the plate, the boys came back and won from Rhode Island in a close game. Just before the Vermont trip, war was declared, and the schedule after that trip was closed. 105 VARSITY HOCKEY TEAM— 1917 VARSITY BASKETBALL TEAM— 1917 WEARERS OF THE " M " McCarthy Whittle Ross Chisholm Carpenter Caulett Roberts Lyons Richardson Goodwin IH Willi ., COMMISSIONED OFFICERS.

(£. luorrgraouales in % 3Firat fHmttlja of Since this is the first wartime Index, it is only fair that in it we should make some specific mention of the part our college has already played. We say now that we are proud of that part, but that the limits of space must confine us to the undergraduates. On April 22, 1917, twenty days after the United States of America entered the war against Germany, President Butterfield announced that plans were being perfected to enable anyone to leave college for war work who wished to do so. Work to be so considered included munition work, mili- tary service, war-garden supervision, farming, etc. Later in the same week. Dean Lewis announced that everything had been arranged and added, confidentially, that the president hoped that " in ten days there wouldn ' t be a man left on the campus. " The plan under which men were allowed to leave was as follows: provided a man ' s work was declared satisfactory to date by his instructors, he could turn in the address of an employer with whom Eign an agreement binding himself to stay in " mobilization " work for at least y change of address, and to report every four weeks as to the progress of port at the end of the twelve weeks was required from the parent or guardian (l return for this work, the student was to receive full credit for the courses It was further decided to open late in the fall, in order to allow those farmers ollege to harvest the extra crops they were urged to plant. Although we did not quite live up to the president ' s wish, in a very short time four hundred and seventy men had left, and o ' .hers continued to do so, until only a handful of from twenty to thirty were left to finish out the college year. Of those leaving eighty-four per cent went into agriculture. he had secured a position twelve weeks, to report a the work. In addition, a and fiom the employer, he was taking at the time, who secured men from the 66.01 per cent were actually engaged in farming, 5.53 per cent had positions as war-garden visors, and 8.07 per cent entered military service. Such are the rough figures regarding the ■ but the statistics have been much more fully reported upon by the president ' s office than space he permit, and our concern is mainly not with how did M. A. C. serve but in what spirit did h place themselves at Uncle Sam ' s disposal and to help win the war. We, being college men, had been trained to believe in the incalculable worth of ideals. uper- odus, ilitary drill and food pr felt as if we, personally, s, and as duction — should be Massachusetts Agricultural College men we had been trained in to fill the two greatest needs of America in 1917. Every one of doing something. And so It was that when President Butterfiel jumped at it. So we went out from Aggie in the spring of 1917 utterly refusing to regard our action as a sacrifice, and we worked hard all summer. When part of us returned in the fall, we found the ranks greatly thinned. Many had been drafted, others had enlisted after working as farmers all summer, and others had remained on the farm. All during the fall term men kept dropping out. " Where ' s So and So? " The answer was generally in one word. " Aviation, " " Radio, " B, thing equally brief and expressive. Although we regretted their going, w appeared that some other fellow had de cided on the course he judged was hard to make. Now as never before, we are coming to realize the of the men who stay behind and farm while they want to fight. " They als. wait, " and we all know that the reserves have a harder time of it, in everything excepting the physical sense, than do the first line fighters. Thus it is that we are equally proud of those who have gone and those who have stayed. This, then, is a brief account of the spirit of the M. A. C. undergraduates in the first few months of the war. We went out to serve, and are still going, with a cynical grin and a punch. We are not puffed up by the small part we have taken, but our one hope for the future is that the spirit that called us may never die, nor even sleep. 108 the ng out.

Burns was born at Hartford, Conn., April 1, 1876. He became quite bald at the age of ten. This resulted from his being the son of a Jewish bartender who used to spin him on his head to see who would pay for the drinks. Water-on-the-brain set in, and the hairs fell in and were drowned. Dr. Burns ' whole life is just filled with thrilling adventures like this. At the tender age of fourteen he had another slight attack of water-on-the-brain which brought with it the desire to go to sea. Accordingly, one bright day early in June of 1 890 he walked seventy-eight miles through a raging blizzard to the tracks of the Seaview Railroad. Here he boarded a train which, as he thought, was to bring him to New London and to his heart ' s desire, the ocean. But alas, the fates were agin the boy, for the engineer in starting the train opened the throttle in re- verse instead of full speed ahead, with the result that the runaway alighted at Amherst, Mass., in the spring of 1893. Nevertheless and notwithstanding, resolute and undaunted, the lad marched up Main Street with firm tread and grim determination. Crossing Pleasant Street, he followed Amity Street as far as South Prospect Street. Here he met up with a lady by the name of Mrs. Hayrick, who took him in and gave him a good home. At this time, the Mass. Agate, and Am Hearts Colleges were running full tilt. This good woman became inspired by the good work of these institutions, and founded the far-famed " Hayrick School of Higher Understanding. " This point marks the beginning of the young man ' s pedagogical career. Starting as custodian of the girls ' dormitory, he rose rapidly, step by step, to the high office that he now holds, that of Dean of the " H. S. of H. U. " He is an excellent man for the place, because he possesses unlimited oratorical ability, to say nothing of his being able to shake his feet. And so, it is to this man, Dean Albert Euripides Burns, that this book is slovenly dedicated. (EVst ICa (Surrrr After graduating from M. A. C. I was very busy trav- elling around the country, and I did not keep up to date in the news concerning the college. So it was not until the spring of 1 940 that I arrived again in Massachusetts. I determined to visit my Alma Mater again, and I arrived in Amherst in due time and walked up toward college. As I approached the campus I noted many new houses with Greek letters on the doors or in other conspicuous places. Girls were going in and out of these houses, whist- ling and chatting away like so many magpies. Later I learned that these were soronety houses. Coming on to the campus I saw numerous other girls going from one building to another, and occasionally one or two fellows, silently walking about arm in arm. All this puzzled me greatly. In front of the drill hall (which, by the way, had been remodelled and was scarcely recognizable), I met a rather timid looking fellow wearing a freshman cap. I thought I would be friendly, so said, " Hi! " He saluted, and an- swered, " How do you do. " I was rather taken back by this but fell into conversation with him. First I asked him what was going on at the drill hall, for I had seen girls coming from there. " O, " he said, " they are preparing for the In- being given to the Amherst fellows tomorrow. " " But where are all the fellows? " He formal which informed me that the pingpong team was dow were in the library or over at Draper Hall, room. " I was speechless. We walked toward South College and athletic field. I was informed that a new d freshman said, " Oh, here comes my sister; sh girl approaching, with a football " M " on hei the field practising. The rest of the fellows he thought " At Draper Hall!!! " " Yes, that I noticed an excavation that was c rmitory for girls, Goessman Hall, w is captain of the football team. " I sweater. Her brother introduced nr where most of them ig made on the old being erected. The .v an athletic looking and I received some severely bruised digits from the grip she gave me. I began the conversation, meanwhile nursing my crushed hand, by asking what was the enrollment of the college. She said there were about 950 girls and 25 fellows, mentioning the fellows rather as an afterthought. I was greatly surprised and asked if there were no sports at Aggie. She looked at me with pity for my ignorance. " We won the football championship from Vassar last fall, we tied Wellesley in hockey, and we have beaten Simmons and Ml. Holyoke in baseball this spring. The most important game is with Smith tomorrow, " she said upon leaving. I learned later that M. A. C. and Smith were bitter rivals because the Amherst men came to Aggie for fussing instead of going to Smith. Just then the chapel bell rang and I decided that I would like to attend chapel again, so we walked toward Stockbridge Hall. Girls poured out of North and South Colleges, all going toward chapel. They gazed at mt new coat of paint. I took a seat i this crowd were ab useful. The Dean them, led the exercises. I been brought to her attent I were a curiosity. I was almost too bewildered to that the Chem. Lab had the balcony and looked down on the crowd of girls. Sandwiched in the middle of it two rows of fellows, their hands folded in their laps, looking more ornamental than a big strapping Amazon, wearing spectacles with a heavy black ribbon attached to s so dazed that the only thing I rememb?r hearing her say was that it had that some of the fellows had been seen on the campus after ten p. M. " If the rules are disobeyed again those stude looked meek, and the girls giggled. As soon as the chapel was over, I ri seen enough. its will have th shed to the c 117 tting privilegt osswalks and caught take lh.- t. trolley for uptown. I had A COLLEGE LIFE TALK Prof: — " Young men, as you probably know, you are now in college. Can anyone tell me how cold it was this morning? Two below? I might say at this point that the thermometer here in Amherst often registers as much as twenty below, and — let us have order, please ! Do any of you fellows think you know how to study? Well, you may now but you won ' t think so at the end of the term. How many of you have cats in your homes? H-m, not many. The Dean wishes me to announce that the hour plans are due next Friday. Now, when you study, don ' t stick your feet up higher than your head. That will be all today. " O! It ' s great to get up in the morning When the temperature ' s four below. And your underclothes feel like an iceberg That ' s been out over night in the snow. O ! It ' s great to get up in the morning When the chapel clock strikes seven And run all the way to Stockbridge Hall, And back home again at eleven. O! It ' s great to get up in the morning When you were out the night before. And didn ' t get in till the crowing Of the rooster just next door . O! It ' s great to get up in the morning When you ' ve classes all day long And you haven ' t time for breakfast And your cuts have long been gone. O! yes, we all enjoy it Without a doubt we do, But if we could make out our schedules We wouldn ' t have classes till noon. Prof. Jones (in agronomy) — Farring- ton! are you asleep? Farrington — Nope. Prof. — Well, then, don ' t look that way. Why did you give up smoking? I chews to reform. NOAH ' S ARK UP TO DATE King Wilhelm built a ship of state Like a good old Prussian soul ; He put his Germans on the deck and his family in the hold. And when he pushed off from the shore For his place in the sun, All Europe gathered on the bank and sang to the sun-of-a-gun, CHORUS: Go to then, go to then, Go to right now with your damned old frau. For you ain ' t going to reign anyhow, any- how. For you ain ' t going to reign anyhow ! Then Wilhelm fell upon his knees, And prayed that they might drown, But that God, with His almighty hand would save the German crown. Then Belgium fair and northern France were raped by his son and heir. And still came wafted on the breeze That same ungodly air, For three long years and many a day, The war was waged like , The dead men covered all in sight and they rotted where they fell.

You all know that up to the present time the greater part of the Junior and Senior classes have been able to room in the dormitories. If this is to con- tinue it is up to us to eradicate a goodly part of this Sophomore class of 1919, and in this work I see great possibilities. In view of the fact that about 30 per cent of the class will drop out vol- untarily, it will only be necessary to conspire against a half dozen or so. My plan is to pick, at this time, those who are to be eliminated, and for all of us to attack them simultaneously. The scheme is sure to work, for if any one of us fails to " get " our men, the rest of us will land them at some time during the year.

He determines he will elect Agricultural Economics and become a real county agent. He hasn ' t been on the cam- pus more than a few months before he has heard juniors and seniors swearing about the work they have to do in the course. He immediately decides that Aggie Ec. isn ' t in his line. He next thinks of Ento- mology. He is going to take graduate work and get a government position. He finds zoology is a prerequisite and after taking one of Doc Gordon ' s courses, Entomology no longer has any fascination. He comes next to Botany and he is all imbued with the desire to become a great pathologist. After vainly peering thru a microscope at plant cells for a couple of weeks he decides Botany is out of his line. Agronomy now meets his eye. He seen finds that he must spend too much time in the laboratory for his liking so he turns that down. He now determines to become a great chemist, but after endeavoring to learn some of Doc. Peters ' formulas he gives up in disgust. In desperation he decides to elect General Ag- riculture for he has heard that it is a com- bination of the easiest parts of all the courses. However, he soon finds out dif- ferently and as a final resort takes Pomol- ogy and for the rest of his college course takes life easy. Chem. Prof. — " What would you do if a person should accidentally take some hy- drocianic acid? " Student — " I would give him some hydro- gen peroxide which would form an oxa- mide.

There appears to be only half the class here today, guess the rest are beginning to get cold feet. I should think they would after the show- ing most of you made in the last quiz. It ain ' t going to do ' em any good to cut, for I ' ll stick ' em all, if they don ' t do their work. Some of you will try and cut when the Angel Gabriel blows his horn, but yer ' ll get caught in the end. Some of you say yer spendin ' two hours on yer Physics each day. Yer must put the book under a pil- low and sit on it, by the showing you ' re making. Gentlemen, yer can ' t absorb phy- sics by osmosis. Will somebody wake up Blanchard? Red — I ain ' t asleep. I was just think- ing. Billy — Yer can ' t fool me. Go up to the board and prove that acceleration = , x . While you ' re chewing over that we ' ll see what the rest of you know. Peirson, what is the formula for force? Peirson — Don ' t know. It ' s patented by the Postum Cereal Co. Billy — Buffum, what do you know about friction? Buff — It burns when you slide on it. Billy — Field, describe buoyancy. Field — Buoyancy is a bob used to mark channels and hang lanterns on. Billy — Faxon, tell what yer can about Kepler ' s third law. P. Faxon — Kepler wrote two important laws in physics, each of which is used a great deal. After much experimenting he wrote a third law which has been univer- sally accepted, and which is known through- out the world of physics as Kepler ' s third law. Billy — Blanchard, rub it out and take yer seat. Red — There ain ' t nothing to rub out, but I ' ll be glad to sit down. Billy — Ross, how many of the exam- ples did you do? Dinny — I most finished the first one. Billy — What was the trouble? Dinny — I didn ' t know what formula to use. Billy — This recitation shows you know something about physics, so I am going to give you all a chance to raise your marks. If yer ' ll meet me in Doc Gordon ' s Zoo lab tomorrow morning, I ' ll give yer some- thing to keep you busy, and see to it yer pass this exam or yer ' ll all be buying one way tickets at the end of the term. That ' ll do, gentlemen ! GRAPE NUTS— A CEREAL Act I — Peaceful pond surrounded by verdant foliage and expectant spectators. Act II — Sound of bass drum is heard. Spectators become nervous.

Dean Lewis, who wrote the very inspiring dedication, deserves special mention. Professor Hasbrouck and Mr. Watts have aided us a great deal by checking up class lists and loan- ing pictures of campus scenery. Ralph T. Howe, who did the typewriting for practically the whole book, should also be given his share of the credit. To all others who have in any way assisted in making this " War Index " a book containing quality if not quantity, we wish to extend our thanks. THE STAFF.
