Sixteenth Field Meeting of the Columbia College Athletic Association. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 May 1880

Sixteenth Field Meeting of the Columbia College Athletic Association. I HE cool wind from the south which blew very strongly last Saturday, rendered the spectators on the grand stand at Mott Haven rather chill, and as it blew directly up the homestretch the time, in almost all the races, was rendered slower than would otherwise have been the case. Several of the Bicycle Club came on their machines, and the hill behind the grounds was dotted here and there with dog carts and T carts, The fair sex turned out in full force, as they always do at Columbia's games, and in point of audience the meeting was all that could be desired. The exclusion of the Law and Medical students gave rise to more walk-overs than we have had for a long time, and, even if the action of the Association be justified on the ground that the men are better prepared for the Inter-collegi-ate contests in this way, it certainly detracts very much from the interest of"our field meetings and diminishes our chances of i...

Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 May 1880

Correspondence. Eds. THE COLUMBIA SPECTATOR : \ S there has been a great deal of discussion in regard to the project of forming a new Athletic Association, which is to be constituted much after the manner of the Foot Ball Association, it seems to me to be well to give you my ideas on the subject, in order that through your columns they may come to the notice of the College at large. There is need for reform in the old Association, and I think that even the members are willing to admit this; but, is the best way to bring about these reforms to start another organization ? Let us consider the matter carefully and see what are the facts The old Association is composed very largely of society men, and it is only natural that the Societies should be anxious to perpetuate the present management, as by it they obtain a certain representation, while under the proposed plan it would be an open question whether they would be represented 01* not; but I w I the plan of choosing men to look afte...

About College. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 May 1880

About College. J HE Cricket Eleven took the field on Wednesday, April 28th. BARNARD was the winner of the Philolex-Bar-nard Debate, last Friday afternoon. OLD and new Columbiads will be bought at the SPECTATOR office. WHAT do you think of the Puritan blouse of the Bicycle Club ? THE Athletic Association is going to elect the members for the ensuing year, next Thursday. THE Annual Register shows the number of students in Columbia College to be 1494. THE sophomores and seniors will not be represented in the Spring Regatta. THE seniors say that now the freshmen are learning to sing, they will be happy to graduate. THE freshmen are beginning to brace up for the class assessor, who will soon be around dunning them for money to support the crew. THE first section of the freshman Class were disagreeably surprised, the other day, by a written examination with Professor Schmidt. THE entries for the Inter-Collegiate games close May 15th, with W. F. Morgan, 'BO, at the SPECTATOR office, or 1 E...

School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 May 1880

School of Mines. CHANDLER'S lecture on the electric light is postponed to the 6th of May. POOR 'B2; their victory was short lived. TAKE your quantitative work easy now, sophs; no more examinations in the same till the yearly. THE " Miner " will make its long expected appearance on May 7th. Unavoidable delays have prevented its issue before that date, but on that day the suspense will be over. A BOX of fossil bones was unexpectedly discovered, last week, in the cellar of the old college building, by a member of 'Bl. They will be investigated by Dr. Newberry and may prove a valuable addition to the collection. AT an extra meeting of the Engineering Society a large number of men from 'B2 were elected. Messrs. Churchill, 'BO, and O'Connor, 'Bl, were chosen as judges in the matter of the prizes for essays in the Quarterly. 'B3 held a class meeting on Wednesday, April 27th. The only business transacted was the election of Messrs. Brown and Lynch to represent the class in all athletics out...

The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 May 1880

The College World. BOWDOIN: — The Senior and Junior Exhibition took place on April Fools' day. The boating energies are to be devoted entirely to class races this year. Bowdoin plays Harvard on May ist or 31st. DARTMOUTH: — Several students have secured positions as census enumerators. The nine made a trip during last month in which they played, unsuccessfully, the Boston's, Worcester's and a picked nine. Rumenye has been to Hanover. Dartmouth expects to take the mile at the In-ter-Collegiate meeting. Cogswell will not compete this year. Rundlett has been offered the position of change pitcher on the Worcesters, but has declined. HARVARD: — The class nine project is now well under way, and it is reasonable to suppose that it will prove successful. The first game is to be played on Friday next (April 30th), between 'Bl and 'B3, and much interest is manifested in the result. 'BO will enter no nine for the college championship, as many of her base-ball enthusiasts are rowing, or have l...

Our Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 May 1880

Our Exchanges. AA/'E have received the St. Marys College Miscellany , London, England, and shall be happy to hear the news from the other side of the Atlantic. There is a goodly share of the paper devoted to monthly reports of standing, and notices of various clubs, but the reading matter is good, as it well may be, when Ereck-man-Chartrian gives permission to publish one of his " Rhineland Tales." " Robendo, the Smuggler" also thrills the reader, who instinctively remembers " Cato, the Creeper ; or, the Demon of Deadman's Forest." We enjoyed "Robendo" however. THE Philosophian Review comes to us from the South Jersey Institute, and is the handsomest school paper we have received. " Don't "is very well written, and the articles are good as a rule; but the bard who wrote " The Stereoscope " was most horribly mixed in his feet, and his rhymes are also decidedly barbarous. A little wholesome prose will do him good. The Review says that " scholars, teachers, trustees, alumni, all, are i...

The Library. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 May 1880

The Library. A/XT' E have received one of the "Atlas Series," by the Rev. Caleb Mills, Emeritus Professor of Greek, Wabash College, Indiana, called " New Departures in Collegiate Control and Culture;" which will be noticed hereafter. THE Bicycling World still continues to be the leading bicycling journal. It published some time since, the various bugle calls used by the bicycle clubs, which will be of great service to the buglers thoroughout the country. THE last number of Brentanos Monthly is of more than usual interest, having a spirited picture of the "Henrietta," the property of Mr. J. G. Bennett, and a number of good articles on various athletic pursuits, as well as some nautical yarns, by "Able Seaman." The Monthly does not profess to give athletic s news, as from its form it cannot compete with the weeklies, but the substantial articles which it contains make it of much interest and value to all who are fond of field sports.

The Library. MACADAM, ON THE STILWELL ACT. HP HIS little volume of 189 pages presents a very succint and comprehensive statement of the statutes, decisons, and forms relating to the Stilwell Act. This Act was passed by the Legislature of New York in 1831, and went into operation March Ist, 1832, a date destined to be ever memorable in the history of the State. Prior to 1832, imprisonment for debt had long been recognized as a firmly established principle of our jurisprudence, having been derived from the feudal rigor of the Common Law. Its most obnoxious feature consisted in the fact that it made no discrimination between the innocent and fraudulent debtor. Either could be taken on a la Sa, and incarcerated until he agreed with his adversary or paid the utmost farthing of his debt. What element of public policy this system subserved we, at the present day, are utterlyunable to conceive. The Stilwell Act, however, was passed not to totally abrogate the old law, but to abolish such fe...

About College. I A HE steam launch is now on the Harlem, and it is hoped that the effect on the form of the crews will soon become apparent. She is 62 feet long, 8 feet 6 inches broad, and has an engine of between 30 and 40 horse power. She can steam 13 miles per hour, and her screw can be driven at a rate of 300 revolutions per minute. She is fitted up in hard wood. On the day of the regatta a limited number of passengers will be taken at $1.50 per seat, forward of the engine, and $1 for those aft. She keeps up easily with the eight, and will prove a most valuable addition to the boat club. AT the Games, 'B2 took five first prizes and five second; 'Bl, five first and two second; 'B3, four first and five second; and 'BO, four first and two second.

Shavings. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 May 1880

Shavings. A SOPHOMORE thus describes the division of power among the deities of Grecian mythology : "Jupiter reserved for himself the dominion of heaven, gave Neptune the sea, and Pluto hell." WE clip the following from one of our exchanges: "At Mississippi College the students are compelled to give up their arms before becoming members of the College." We should think it would be very difficult taking lectures, etc., without arms, but then if it is the custom there, it must be all right. Student {sociably): "Well, that takes the cake! " Frenchman {amazedly ): " Eh Monsieur! " Student {gruffly): "It yanks the bun." Frenchman {apologizing): "Pardon, Monsieur, mais jen {Student emphatically): " Elopes with the cookie." Frenchman beats a retreat, and student mutters: "Well he does snag the gingerbread." — Yale News.
