1902 COLUMBIAN Junior Class Year Book to be Dedicated to Hon. William C. Schermerhorn. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 October 1900
1902 COLUMBIAN Junior Class Year Book to be Dedicated to Hon. William C. Schermerhorn. • The work on The Columbian has been going on smoothly and successfully, and there is no doubt but that the annual will appear on time, December 17th. Already enough of the work is completed to send in the first instalment to the printer and now all that remains for the board to do is / to collect the remaining items and the individual records and compile them as quickly as possible. The Columbian this year will be dedicated to the Hon. Wm. C. Schermerhorn, one of our trustees and a great benefactor to the university. If any man who has worked sincerely for Columbia and deserves recognition from the student body, Mr. Schermerhorn does. Therefore, the Columbian Board has seen fit to dedicate the book to Mr. Schermerhorn. In the next few days notices will be sent to the class of 1902 to send in their individual records and photographs. Arrangements have been made with Rockwood, 1440 Broadway, and Br...
Boxing [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 October 1900
Boxing Those at Columbia who wish to take boxing lessons will no doubt be pleased to learn that Professor Walter Watson, who was the instructor of boxing at Dr. Savage's gymnasium at Eighth avenue and Fifty-ninth street last year, wishes this year to form a class at Columbia in addition if enough men desire to join. Professor Watson has a long and creditable record as an instructor both of amateurs and of professional fighters. He was one of the best known men in the ring twenty years ago in England when fighting was much harder than it is now. When he first came to this country he became the instructor at Wood's gymnasium, at that time the best place of its kind in New York City. Later he went to San Francisco, where for twelve years he was the boxing teacher of the Olympic Club. Then he returned to New York, where he has stayed ever since. During his long career he has taught eleven winners of the amateur championship of England, and besides numerous winners of both amateur and pr...
Yale Club's New Building [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 October 1900
Yale Club's New Building The Yale Alumni Weekly contains a picture of the new building of the New York Yale Club. The structure is being built on 44th street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. It is to be eleven stories high and will be handsomely furnished. The situation is all that can be desired, being on the same block as the Harvard Club, St. Nicholas Club, Bar Association and New York Yacht Club. It is also near all the leading theatres and hotels and the site of the new public library building. The Yale Club was organized in 1897, as successor to the Yale Alumni Association of this city. Since its organization its growth has been very rapid and it now has a membership of 1,112.

Gymnasium Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 October 1900
Gymnasium Notes The prospects for the gymnasium team are very good. Besides several promising candidates in the Freshman class, there are a number of excellent men from other colleges. Graduation has taken away Fuente and De Young. The latter, however, has a very able understudy in Earle. The Tennis and Racquet Club has presented the Fencing Club with a large number of fencing outfits. The physical examinations of the Freshmen are now in progress, but are not promising. The Faculty Committee, at the request of Mr. Bangs, has confirmed the appointment of Hanlan as rowing coach. Dr. Savage wishes it to be announced that the floor work of all classes will begin next week.
Intercollegiate Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 October 1900
Intercollegiate Notes CORNELL. The Cornell track team has elected H. E. Hastings, 'oi, captain. Hastings took second in the half-mile in the intercollegiates last June and for two years has been on all the Cornell relay teams. Cornell has lost eight members of its 1900 team and will have to depend largely on new material this year. PENNSYLVANIA. Nearly a hundred men have come out for the class crews to enter the fall regatta at the University of Pennsylvania. Greater interest has been shown in this event than ever before and it is expected that eleven crews will take part. Three members of the last year's Varsity have graduated— Snover (captain), Kintzing, and Stehle. YALE. In connection with the formation of a Republican Club here, it is interesting to note the prominence of political feeling at Yale. The first meeting this year of the Yale Democratic Club was held in Osborne Hall last Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock. The meeting was fairly well attended and full of enthusiasm. W. L...
Intercollegiate Tennis Tournament [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 October 1900
Intercollegiate Tennis Tournament The singles and doubles championships in the intercollegiate tennis tournament held at Haverford last week was won for Princeton through the brilliant work of R. D. Little and F. B. Alexander. The weather was wet and unfavorable for any great display of skill, yet despite this the play in the match was highly creditable to both winner and loser. W. J. Clothier of Swarthmore, who is the present Pennsylvania champion, did his best to keep the trophy from defeat, but was compelled to bow before the racket of Little. The score was 6 —3, 6 —3, 6 —2. In the doubles Little and Alexander of Princeton easily won over Thomas and Ware of Harvard by the score of 6 —1, 6 —2, 6 —l.

Fall Tennis Tournament The annual fall tennis tournament for the purpose of selecting a team to play Princeton will begin on Friday, October 12, at 3 o'clock. Entries should be handed to S. K. Wilson, at the office of the Literary Monthly, in the basement of West Hall, before 6 o'clock Thursday afternoon. Entries for singles will be fifty cents and for doubles a dollar a team. All players must furnish their own balls. The courts will be open for practice on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. They are in good condition and very fast. This is the first year in the history of the club that the courts have been ready for play on the opening day of college. It is desired that more men should join the club. Those wishing to do so should hand their names to R. H. White, '01; S. K. Wilson, 'O2, or W. Pell, 02.
Football Practice. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 October 1900
Football Practice. It was evident from the football practice during the latter part of last week that the morale of the team had undergone a decided change since the Rutger's game. The iiard, conscientious showing that the men made was in striking contrast with the jaunty indifference displayed in Monday's and Tuesday's practice. The failure to roll up a larger score against Rntger's pointed to the conclusion that the team, to have a successful season must receive the support of candidates and undergraduates alike. That the urgency of this was appreciated by the student body was shown by the fact that on Thursday there were fully fifty men on the field in football togs —an increase of fifteen over any former day-—while there were over four hundred undergraduates on the side lines. On Thursday the game with the scrub lasted for two 20-minute halves, and the play was the most aggressive that has yet been seen. The work was largely directed to strengthening the Varsity defense which at...

Fall Games The annual fall games of the Columbia University Athletic Association are to be held on Saturday, October 20, on Columbia Field. These games are open to all registered students of the university. The purpose of the fall games is to call out the new athletic material in the university, and by bringing the new men into contact and competition with those who have before represented Columbia upon the track, to interest them in the general athletic work. To this end all students are urged to compete in the games. Any man who has done athletic work before he came to college, or any man who has any inclination to come out should present himself, being assured that he will receive all encouragement and help toward his development. The events will be: 100-yard dash, novice. 220-yard dash, handicap. 440-yard run, scratch. 880-yard run (Freshmen only). One-mile run, handicap. Two-mile run, scratch. 1000-yards handicap. High jump.

Freshman Crew Out [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 October 1900
Freshman Crew Out The Freshmen crew candidates are working every afternoon under coach Hanlan, assisted by some of last year's Varsity crew. The men row in the following order: W. Earle, bow; O'Connell, 2; Alexander, 3; Wupperman, 4; Carlson, 5; Carter, 6; Ashley, 7; Updike, stroke; Jackson, coxswain. Although the Freshmen are excedingly light, coach Hanlan is pleased with their work. He has asked for an assistant to take charge of the boats and boat-house, as a great deal of unnecessary damage has been done to the shells by the new men. He has recommended the appointment of Fred Plaisted, the professional oarsman who coached the crews of the Clifton Boat Club, Staten Island, during the past season. Rollins, the champion sculler of the Varuna Boat Club is out trying for the crew.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 October 1900
The Mass Meeting of last Thursday, called for the purpose of discussing our rowing interests is significant as an evidence on the part of the management to prosecute a vigorous financial policy from the start instead of struggling feebly along until fear of faculty interference calls for unusual effort. The idea that rowing, because of its greater complexity and its almost entire dependence upon subscription lists for its funds, needs more official undergraduate attention than a manager and one assistant can furnish seems altogether reasonable. The formation of a Rowing Club in which membership rests entirely upon the payment of dues, and which is to take completecontrolof theboating interests however, savors strongly of a return to the unpopular Boat Club. Such a radical change is probably not contemplated by the committee empowered to draw up a new constitution. Indeed it was expressly understood at the meeting that the new body had to be consistent with the democratic spirit of t...
