Holy Cross Defeats Harvard [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 December 1900
Holy Cross Defeats Harvard Holy Cross College and Harvard University met for the first time in their history in a debating contest Tuesday night, and Holy Cross won. The discussion was in Mechanics' Hall, Worcester, before an audience of 1200 people. The debaters, who are all juniors in their respective colleges, were: For Harvard—Adolph Friedman of Cleve-' land, Ernest E. Smith of Brooklyn, Edward H. Letchworth of Buffalo; for Holy Cross—John A. Sullivan of Bangor, Me.; Augustus P. Conneff of Plains, Penn.; and Patrick F. Doyle of Worcester. The question, which was selected by the Harvard men, was: " Resolved, That the Permanent Retention of the Philippines Islands by the United States is Desirable." Holy Cross had the negative. In the opinion of two of the judges, the two teams were equal in point of matter and preparation, but the three judges were unanimous that Holy Cross excelled in manner and delivery.

The college is Columbia College, founded in 1754 as King's College. The university consists of the Faculties of Law, Medicine, Philosophy, Political Science, Pure Science, and Applied Science. The point of contact between the college and the university is the senior year of the college, during which year students in the college pursue their studies, with the consent of the college faculty, under one or more of the faculties of the university. Barnard College, a college for women, is financially a separate corporation; but, educationally, is a part of the system of Columbia University.

SOPH. SHOW A Pleasing Production by the Class of 1903—Professor Whimsical and His Confreres on the Stage. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
SOPH. SHOW A Pleasing Production by the Class of 1903—Professor Whimsical and His Confreres on the Stage. The Sophomore Class, through the mediumship of "Prof. Whimsical, gave a delightful seance at the Cax - negie Lyceum on Tuesday night, and incidentally enlightened the spirits of the audience. Leonidas Westervelt, 'O2, who discovered the Professor floating on the sands of Atlantic City, really deserves great credit \for the admirable manner in which he has brought him to Broadway. Although the story of the Professor is by no means novel, yet Westervelt has written some very clever situations and, on the whole (with apologies to the Rhetoric Department), produced a satisfactory play. The story, given in detail in a recent number of SPECTATOR, tells mainly of the endeavors of staid Mis. Ballington Bounce to graft her blossoming daughter Cherry to a branch of a titular family tree. Incidentally a band of fakirs demonstrate how easy it is to live comfortably at the expense of others....

CHRISTMAS LETTERS Messages from President Low and other Officers of the University—Captains Discuss Prospects of Teams. PRESIDENT S ROOM. Dec. 15, 1900. To the Editor of the COLUMBIA SPECTATOR : It gives me pleasure to comply with your request to send my Christmas greetings to the students of Columbia University through your columns. I wish them, with all my heart, a Merry Christmas and a Hap- py New Year. On this last Christmas of the century, we of Columbia have much cause for gratitude and much cause for courage. First of all, I would caution your readers not to be disturbed by items in the press calculated to awaken concern as to the financial condition of the University. At no time since the removal of the University was determined upon has the outlook been so encouraging as it is to-day. We still need the support of the community, to carry the enterprise to complete success, as we have needed it in the past; but we do not need help upon a scale so formidable as to make it diff...

CANE SPREE Mines Sophomores Defeat the Freshmen in Three Bouts—Tug-of-War Also a Victory for 1903. The cane spree between the Sophomiore and Freshman classes in the School of Mines which occurred on Monday resulted in a victory for the Sophomores. The second year men had a comparatively easy time of it and won all three bouts. Immediately after the heavy weight contest which lasted less than two minutes, the tug-of-war was held and in this the Freshmen again proved the weaker. The cane spiree was held in the gym. Woodward, 1901, was referee and Shoemaker, 1902, acted as timekeeper. Only upper-classmen were allowed on the floor and the Sophomores and Freshmen collected on the running track. The lightweight bout was the first to be held and began at 3 o'clock. Miller representing the Sophomores and Day the Freshmen were roundly cheered by their respective classes when they appeared. FIRST ROUND. As soon as the whistle blew Day managed to get his head under Miller's arm and immediatey ...

Gift to Avery Library [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
Gift to Avery Library A valuable gift, the large Japanese case facing the door of the Avery Library, has just been presented to the University. The donor was the executor of the estate of Joseph W. Sprague who had bought in the case at auction. The cabinet, though not a copy, resembles in style, the famous Karamon gate of the grand shrine of the General levasu at Nikko. It was executed for the late owner by J. Numashima. More valuable than tlie cabinet, however, is the collection of photographs which it contains. They are 3000 in number and, covering as they do, many reproductions of painting and sculpture form a valuable addition to the Avery Library, and will serve as a foundation for a large collection to be available for all members of the Universitv.

WOODBERRY DIMMER Testimonial to the Professor of Literature by His Present and Former Students — Distinguished Speakers. On Friday last was held at Sherry's one of the most congenial and enjoyable affairs that has marked in recent years the relations between student and professor at Columbia —the dinner to George Edward Woodberry Covers were laid for more than one hundred and fifty guests arranged by classes and the arrangements of the dinner committee had been so well conducted as to give every cause for gratitude. The toast master was Joseph M. Proskaner '97, and he introduced the guest of the evening with an appropriate and happy quotation from the latter's "New Defence of Poetry" which embodied much of what has made Prof. Woodberry's teaching so forceful and of so much help. His speech was as follows: " Mr. Chairman, my friends older and younger, fellow professors and fel" low students: — There is little need to say that I am glad to be your guest and grateful that so many of yo...

Class of 1900 [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
Class of 1900 To the Editor of SPECTATOR: Dear Sir : Although the class of 1900 has been gone from the halls of Columbia but six short months we are already scattered far and wide and are busily engaged in many different occupations. For instance Bobby Hull is studying for the ministry out in Rochester while Tom Simons under the firm name of "Thomas Simons &amp; Company, members Consolidated Stock Exchange'' is doing cpiite a nice little business down on lower Broadway. Then there is Hoffman who is studying medicine over in Philadelphia and Ralph Litni who has just been admitted to the New Jersey bar and is engaged to be married. Gregory is already a benedict and rumor says that W. 'H. Dixon may scon join him in that state of felicity. The class of 1900 has a little group of men at P. &amp; S., at the Union Theological Seminary, at the New York Law School and in the business and commercial world. Sid Harrison, France and Pollard are trying to teach others a little O'...
