FOOTBALL UNDER WAY. First Game Wednesday with Rutgers.— Preliminary Practice at Branford and on South Field.—Season Tickets on Sale. The first practice in the field opposite die Library was held last Wednesday afternoon. The squad has been augmented daily by new men who come out until it numbers thirty-five. The prospects for the team are good, but the management want all men who are of any size to come out, whether they have had any experience or not. The number of candidates should be at least fifty. The football practise thus far has consisted mainly of a drill in the rudiments of the game. Coach Sandford is paying a great deal of attention to form in falling on the ball, and each day the work is begun with a thorough course in this department. After the men are well warmed up, the squad is divided into.a 'varsity and a scrub, and play is started on the 'varsity's 5-yard mark, with the ball in the scrub's possession. The 'varsity has so far found little trouble in taking the ball...

Deutscher Verein. The Deutscher Verein will resume its regular meetings on the evening of the second Monday of this month. A new feautre of the literary exercises this year will be addresses and lectures by prominent professors of German from other universities. Up to the present time only one Freshman has been admitted to the verein each year, who holds the position of "Bierfuchs." It is expected that this policy will be changed, however, in view of the fact that many men only take German in their Freshman year.

UNIVERSITY HALL Work already resumed. Alumni subscribe for the completion of their memorial. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1900
UNIVERSITY HALL Work already resumed. Alumni subscribe for the completion of their memorial. The building now being erected on the north side of the campus over the gymnasium foundations is to be called University Hall and is the gift of the Columbia alumni to the university. During the coming college year only one story will be built, as funds are lacking for the present completion of the structure. The principal feature of the part now under construction will be the Alumni Memorial Hall. This hall will have a seating capacity of nearly five hundred people; it will be 118 feet long and 64 feet wide, with a ceiling 60 feet in height. It will occupy the center of the new building. There are to be corridors on either side of it, while outside of these corridors toward the front of the building will be six smaller rooms, to be used eventually as dining-halls, though at first they will be at the disposal of the officers of the university. The bursar's office will be in the back or north...

Boat House. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1900
Boat House. The management of the boat house on the Hudson has been put under the direction of the superintendent of buildings and grounds, a change which will guarantee an efficiency and a system which has hitherto been lacking. Superintendent Goetze announces that the building will be opened to-day to all students of the university upon presentation of their matriculation card. During the summer months the house and the craft it contains have undergone a thorough renovation in the hands of Mr. Webb, and the premises are in a most serviceable condition. Alumni can obtain the privileges of the house by applying for a card of admission at the superintendent's office. The building may be visited by friends of the university, who will be obliged to register in the usual manner. The house will be under the immediate charge of Coach Hanlon, who will be there permanently, and whose permission must be obtained previous to using any of the boats, etc.
Columbia at Poughkeepsie. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1900
Columbia at Poughkeepsie. The following is a brief resume of the work of the Columbia crews at Poughkeepsie last June. Every one familiar with the 1900 boating season at Columbia is aware of the difficulties and embarrassments suffered by the crew management; that these difficulties did not prevent the crews from actually rowing is due largely to the efforts of the captain, J. W. Mackav, 1900, and to the manager, Walton L. Oackley, 1900. The crews were coached by three men: Dr. Walter Peet, for most of the spring, and W. A. Meickleham, who very kindly volunteered to do the best he could under the conditions existing when Dr. Peet resigned. Mr. Meickelham was succeeded as coach by Edward Hanlan, formerly champion single sculler of the world and one of the most remarkable oarsrnen who ever sat in a boat. This was less than two weeks before the race, after the crews had arrived at Poughkeepsie. Old Columbia rowing men say that they never saw crews improve as ours did in the short time ...

Y. M. C. A. Notes. The opening week of the university is the occasion of renewed activity in the work of the Young Men's Christian Association. The association rooms in West Hall have been open all day for the past week and a representative has been in charge to aid the new men in finding suitable board. A list of personally-inspected boarding houses is on file in the rooms. The handbook which the association issues annually has been delayed in publication, but will be out in a few days, and will be distributed free to all new students. The first meeting of the year will be a reception to new students, to be held on the third floor of West Hall, .Wednesday, October 10, from 2:30-4:30. More Bible study courses are being planned this year than usual. Mr. W. H.

Williams, Jr., Yale, '9B,...
SUMMER SCHOOL. Innovation Proves a Success, Both Educationally and Financially. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1900
SUMMER SCHOOL. Innovation Proves a Success, Both Educationally and Financially. In line with her growth in other directions, Columbia has this year successfully maintained a summer school. Both teachers and students are heartily pleased with the results. The opportunities for a wide range of courses were exceptional, and 417 students availed themselves of the advantages offered. There were 29 courses which were divided as follows: of the total enrollment 42.21 per cent, were in the courses in education, 21.84 per cent, in English, 8.11 per cent, in psychology, 6.74 per cent, in mathematics, 5.43 per cent, in geography, 3.87 per cent, in physical training, 3.68 |per cent, in physics, 2.58 per cent, in ibotany, 2.21 per cent, in philosophy, .1.94 per cent, in manual training, land 1.39 per cent, in history. |lt will be seen that the courses lin education ,were by far the moist popular. This is probably due to the fact that most of the students were either teachers. . ,or preparing to ...
Musical Clubs. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1900
Musical Clubs. In a few days the leaders of the Glee, Mandolin, and Banjo clubs will post signs announcing trials for their respective clubs. It is hoped that the men will turn out in large numbers in response to the calls. Each club has suffered severe losses in losing the men of the class of 1900. This is not the only thing that makes the clubs at present very weak. A great many men who were on the clubs last year will be unable to play or sing this year. The clubs finished the past season in debt, and to rid themselves of this an early start and an active season will be necessary. When, next week, the leaders of the musical clubs put out their signs for trials, let every one who can play or sing turn out and give the clubs a start. A theatrical agent has offered to give the clubs a six-day trip, with expenses paid, during the Christmas holidays, and although nothing definite lias been decided upon it is possible that this may be arranged. On June 29, the night before the intercol...

The College. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1900
The College. Little can be given out at this early xlate regarding the size of the incoming Freshman class in the College. The whole number of students in the iCollege, will, however, undoubtedly be larger than in previous years, from the admission of many students from :other colleges to advanced standing at Columbia. Dean Van Amringe states that all signs point to a prosperous year.

Debating. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 October 1900
Debating. This winter Columbia will again have two intercollegiate debates —one with Pennsylvania and one with Cornell. In order that the spring debate with Cornell may not come so near the final examinations as it did last year, it has been decided to hold the Pennsylvania debate early in December. This necessitates holding the trials earlier than usual. This is our first debate with Pennsylvania and it is essential that we send to Philadelphia the strongest team we can muster. It is desired that all university men who feel they have any ability for debating should try to make the teani. The Pennsylvania committee has chosen as the subject, "Resolved: That the United States should establish a system of graded subsidies, based upon the mileage navigated by registered American vessels." Columbia has the choice of side, but thi union has not yet made its decision. Pennsylvania has had longer experience at debating than Columbiaand may be expected to have a very strong team this year. ...
