Harvard Wins Debate With Yale [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 December 1900
Harvard Wins Debate With Yale The annual Yale-Harvard debate was held last Friday evening at Cambridge in Sanders Theater; the subject discussed was the permanent retention of the Philippines. The Harvard speakers based their claim for retention on the incapacity of the Filipinos for government. The debate turned largely on the evidence for or against their political ability. Harvard's clever rebuttal speeches told strongly in her favor. Harvard was represented by M. Seasongood, 1901 Law, R. C. Bruce, 1900, and H. P. Chandler, 1900. Yale's team was composed of C. W. Merriam, 1900, F. H. Sincerbeaux, 1902, and M. Trowbridge, 1902. Mr. Straus, U. S. Minister to Turkey, was one of the judges.
Varsity Basket Ball [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 December 1900
Varsity Basket Ball For the first time in several years Columbia is to have a Varsity bas-ket-ball team. Games have so far been arranged with Yale, Harvard, Pennsylvania, and Dartmouth. Contests with Tufts, Wesleyan, Williams, and Rutgers, and various Y. M. C. A. teams in the vicinity of New York are being considered. The coach, John Wendelken, a famous professional player, expresses himself as well pleased with the material and believes be can turn out a winning team. Columbia, however, will need a good deal of heavy work to get into good enough form to compete successfully with the other college teams. The management is trying to make the Yale game a social as well as an athletic success. It is planned to have the game take place early in January in the Knickerbocker Athletic Club's gymnasium. It is expected that the Freshman team will also have a contest the same evening with some prominent preparatory school five. After the contests the Association plans to have the Glee and Man...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 December 1900
SPECTATOR will print next issue a correct copy of the report by the football manager. The subject matter of the report is not unusual and can probably be duplicated in the reports of other colleges. It has become, of late, a custom the wisdom of which we question, to treat football players and other athletes to the fat of the land, with other objects than that of increasing their weight. The Columbia report is not inconsistent. It shows that in the neighborhood of five hundred dollars has been expended in dinners, theater tickets, and outside football games. It also shows that to a coach who received $5OOO for three months' services, additional expenses incurred in the ordinary duties of coaching were allowed. These are the facts. Were things not as they are, there might be dissatisfaction without complaint, but the present financial situation in athletics calls for more than this. It calls for protest. Football is to be tolerated, supported, and encouraged under two circumstances a...
