The following permanent officers were elected for the ensuing year: President, McKeon; Vice-President, Woodward; Secretary, Marston; and Manager, Megrue.

A. team, Twen-ty-third street branch, and who is considered to be one of the best centers in the country, coached the men for an hour or so, illustrating his precepts by playing personally with the team. After the game he expressed his opinion that there was promising material among the candidates and that he saw no reason why Columbia should not have the winning team among the colleges this ye...

Intercollegiate Hockey [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 December 1900
Intercollegiate Hockey The Executive Committee of the Intercollegiate Hockey Association met last week to arrange the schedule for the coming season. Columbia, Yale, Princeton and Brown were represented. These colleges formed last year's association. The University of Pennsylvania applied for admission, and after considerable discussion the request was granted. Applications from Swarthmore and Haverford were rejected. The admission of Pennsylvania to the league brings a new and strong member into the association. Pennsylvania has all the advantages of steady practice that Columbia has, and will probably be a strong rival. The Executive Committee decided to arrange a one-round schedule of games in which each team will once play every other, making a total of ten contests in the series. At the conclusion of the schedule the two sevens which rank highest on a percentage basis of games won and lost will meet in a series of three games to decide the championship. Eight of the games will ...
Cornell Hockey Team [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 December 1900
Cornell Hockey Team Cornell will not enter the Intercollegiate Hockey League this year. The admittance fee to the league is $lOO, and as the team has no means of raising funds to defray its ordinary expenses it is out of the question to pay this amount. Another reason is that other college teams have a great advantage in having artificial ice on which to practice. It is expected that next year a rink will be built in Ithaca. This will put Cornell on even terms with other colleges and will warrant entering the league. Negotiations are in progress for games this season with Columbia, Pennsylvania, College of the City of New York, and Union. A class league also will be arranged, and a meeting for this purpose will be called shortly. —Cornell Sun.
Swimming [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 December 1900
Swimming A meeting of the Columbia University Swimming Association, for the election of officers for the coming year, will be held Wednesday, Dec. 12, at 3.30 P.M. Notice of the room where the meeting will be held will be posted on the bulletin boards. All who are interested in swimming or water polo should be sure to attend. J. W. SPENCER, Pres. Candidates for the Freshman Relay Swimming and Water Polo Teams have been practicing regularly on Tuesday and Fridays at 5 P.M. Some of the men have made a very good showing, but in order to turn out a strong water polo team it will be necessary to have enough candidates to form two full teams, in order that the men may learn the full system of play. No ability for past swimming is required. All that is necessary is considerable bathing experience and a consequent familiarity with the water. Get more men and turn out immediately.

Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 December 1900
Correspondence. To the Editor of SPECTATOR: Dear Sir Your columns of to-day will undoubtedly contain a statement of the embarrassing financial situation in which our athletes are at present involved. The problem before us is on its face a very difficult one, and its solution will depend on the energy and determination with which it is met. It will naturally fall to the members of the Executive Committee of the Athletic Association to take the initiative in evincing such energy and determination and in exhausting every possible means of remedy. That they will do so I can assert with some authority; for at the preliminary meetings of the committee thus far the spirit of resolve shown has seldom been equaled, and many active steps have already been taken. But the committee's efforts can of themselves avail little without the cooperation of the entire student-body. I wish therefore to impress upon your readers the importance which attaches to the support they give us in this matter, and...

French Lecture [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 December 1900
French Lecture Professor Colin continued his series of French lectures last Thursday with an address on "Les Congres de I'Exposition de ipoo. The l ecture dealt with the origin, growth and character of the congresses held at recent expositions. Professor Cohn began by saying that the greatest charm of the Paris Exposition was the poetic aspect and atmosphere, and that although now all signs of it have been removed it will always remain in the memory of man. The first time internal congresses were assembled in this connection was in the centennial exposition of the French Revolution. Later, in the Fair of 1899, and also in the World's Fair held in Chicago in 1893, the custom was kept up. The steady growth was surprising, and the Exposition of 1900 marked the triumph of congresses, in that more than 200 were in session at the same time. The greater part of these congresses were socialist, but there were some which were devoted to comparative history, literature and the natural science...
Collection of Architectural Photographs [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 December 1900
Collection of Architectural Photographs An interesting and valuable collection of over 3,200 photgraphs has recently been given to the Library by Seth Sprague Terry. The collection was "made by his uncle, the late Joseph W. Sprague of Louisville, in the course of his travels in many parts of the world. There are many fine landscapes of Mexico and the western United States, but most of the pictures are of architectural subjects. Many of them are of the famous buildings of Europe; but the most valuable part of the collection consists of views of Japanese architecture. Among these are some very rare pictures. A number of collectors were prepared to bid for portions of the collection at the auction last Thursday; but Mr. Terry was anxious to have it kept entire and decided to purchase it for some college. It is said to be through the influence of some alumni interested in the sale that they were given to Columbia The pictures will be catalogued as soon as practicable by the system used ...
