Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 April 1880
Correspondence. NEW YORK, April 15th, 1880. Messrs. Editors: — should be something done immediately by the students concerning the unwarranted action of the C. C. A. A. in the exclusion of a large class of our best athletes by shutting out the Law and Medical Schools. Because they are debarred from the Inter-collegiate field meet- ing is reason enough why they should be allowed to enter in our games. Our meeting this Spring will be doomed to failure if the Athletic Association do not rescind their recent resolution and open the games to all members of the University. I sincerely hope that this will be earnestly considered by the members of the Athletic Association. Yours, etc., L. DEAR SPECTATOR: T OULD it not be advisable, as well as an act of justice, to have the Law and Medical Departments represented by memberships in the athletic associations? It would increase the athletic interest in both the schools, and thus prove of great benefit to our semi-annual field-meetings. Will not...
About College. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 April 1880
About College. CPRING sports on the ist of May this year. Time to get to work. THE cricket eleven ought to begin work soon. PROFESSOR NAIRNE has taken a two weeks vacation for his health. IT is expected that the steam launch will be on hand within a week. BUY as many tickets as you can for the Boat Club Benefit on Friday next. THE sophomores find the Agricola of Tacitus much harder than the Germania. THE steam launch is expected next week. It will be very handy for the regattas. QUITE a panic in Columbiads; they are selling at from twenty-five cents to a dollar. FIVE or six crews wearing the blue and white may now be seen on the river daily. AT last the monthly Greek marks have appeared and eased many a troubled soul. GEORGE C. KOBBE, '74, was married to Miss Alice Leavitt, of this city, last Wednesday, April 14th. THE excitement about co-education in college seems to have given place to that of electives. THE unavoidable lateness by Dr. Chandler last Thursday, created quite a distu...
School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 April 1880
School of Mines. junior and senior classes have changed their Drawing Room to the second floor of the old college building. This is a very good idea, as it gives the sophomores and freshmen the drawing academy in the Mines, and consequently nobody is crowded. AT last we hear, from not too good authority, that our long looked for Miner may be expected the latter part of this month. It is sincerely hoped that this report may be authenticated, as patience regarding the same begins to be a virtue. 'BO. At a regular meeting of this class, Messrs. Browning and Greenleaf were elected as the class speakers at the commencement. SUBSCRIPTIONS are going around in the different classes to raise a purse for purchasing votes at the Fair for the shell, which is to be awarded to the college receiving the highest number. We wish the gentlemen who are soliciting subscriptions all success. THE freshmen have recently shown a decided interest in the tug-of-war. On Thursday, the 16th, sections A and B ha...
The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 April 1880
The College World. BROWN: — The Brunonian strongly advocates entrance in the N. A. A. O. Races at Philadelphia. The design for Senior Class Day invitations offered by Tiffany, has been accepted. The Saturday morning lectures in History of Philosophy are to be continued during the whole term. The subject for the Senior Essay Prize from the 1873 fund, is a "Critique on Herbert Spencer's ' Data of Ethics.' " The college authorities have shown their interest in college sports by mending the practice ground of the base-ball team. Brown has played four games with professional nines and has lost all of them. Brown has a crack rifle shot, as well as a celebrated pitcher. The freshmen have challenged the sophomores to a six-oared race. A chapter of 11. 0. 17. has recently been re-es-tablished at Brown. According to Mr. Baird, the fraternity now numbers forty-two chapters, aggregating 5,300 members. The Brunonian advises a four to be put in training for the proposed World's Regatta. CORNELL: ...
The Library. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 April 1880
The Library. T T is with pleasure that we look over a publication edited in part by a graduate who, while in college, was interested personally in the college paper then existing. So it is with the kindest feelings that we look at the Musical Review , edited and owned by Archibald Mac Martin and Gustav Kobbe, '77. This weekly is devoted entirely to music, and contains in its sixteen pages a great many interesting musical facts and fancies. To parties who like a journal of that description, the Musical Review will be found very convenient, and within the reach of all, as its single copies are only six cents, or $2.50 per annum by subscription.
Our Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 April 1880
Our Exchanges. HE Concordiensis has made its appearance, A and we look forward to an exchange with pleasure, although Union is so near us, in comparison with most of the colleges, our knowledge of her is very slight, and a closer acquaintance will prove agreeable. THE University Reporter has called at our sanctum. lowa claims him. The outside is not handsome, to say the least, but the contents are quite interesting. We should advise the editors to make some acknowledgement when they copy poems like "An Austrian Army Awfully Arrayed," and not insert them as original. THE Syracusan , of March 22d, gives an interesting article on the Cost of College Management, from which we get the information that at Columbia the average amount expended in educating a man is 11,485; at Harvard, $1,400; at Hamilton, SI,OOO. These estimates do not regard " the student's expenses for board, rooms, clothing, books, etc., etc., but simply the cost of furnishing the instruction, using this term in its broa...
Shavings. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 April 1880
Shavings. THIRD TERM NOTES FROM YALE RECORD. WE come back to our daily grind in the full belief that a third term is unconstitutional, a terrible blot on the curriculum, and ought to be given up —to base-ball and boating. GRANT still believes that: — "'Tis better to have run and lost Than never to have run at all." AN undergraduate asked his sister, when he was home last vacation, what books she was " doing." " ' Social Pressure 'on Sunday evenings," she replied. "Do you like it ?" " Oh, dear, yes. It's just splendid ! Arthur Helps, you know." —Madisonensis. EXAMINATION IN PSYCHOLOGY. —Dr. C. "What is the first power of the mind?" junior—" The first power of the mind is—is —is —" Dr. C. —"Sense, is it not?" Junior (much relieved) —"Yes, sir ; the first power of the mind is sense." Dr. C. —" What is the second power of the mind ?" Junior (with confidence) —" The second power of the mind is a sense of hunger. The Chronicle. Instructor: " Mr. X., you have a lesson in Latin to make up."...
Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 April 1880
Correspondence. NEW YORK, April 16th, 1880. Eds. THE COLUMBIA SPECTATOR : T N 1878 the trustees decided that after the annual commencement in June, 1880, the degree of Master of Arts would be conferred only on Bachelors of Arts of three years standing, or more, who shall have pursued, for at least one year, a course of study under the direction of the faculty of the college, in the subjects of one of five groups. Now, Messrs. Editors, I am in favor of everything which will elevate the standard at Columbia, and make her a leading university, but this recent enactment will not have the desired effect. There are so many colleges in the United States who are continually conferring degrees, both B. A. and M. A. degrees, that this attempt to put a premium 011 M. A. degrees by one college will be as a rain drop in the bucket. However, I think the step is in the right direction, and, if supported by Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, will, undoubtedly, be successful I also claim that the trustee...
