A merry Christmas to you all men of Columbia. SPECTATOR bids you godspeed as you go your several ways to enjoy the holidays. For a brief space the heights of Morningside will cease to know you, and the campus which to-day is busy with the life that is Columbia's will be dull and dreary in your absence. Columbia will be no more, for you will have carried her away in your hearts. The empty halls, the deserted campus make a silent and lifeless place; the house of our Mother Columbia is empty; her children are gone. The Yule'tide, is here and you must go—but as you depart remember that your college in the new year will be ready to welcome you back to other labors, other pleasures and further triumphs. The remark was made by Professor Peck at the recent dinner tendered to Professor Woodberry that a college does not consist of bricks and mortar but of men. This is undoubtedly true in the sense in which it was uttered. The men on the faculties, the men who come from all parts of the countr...

Prof. Learned of Pennsylvania Speaks to Deutscher Verein A well-attended meeting of the Deutscher Verein was held on Monday evening, December ioth, in the society room in West Hall. The speaker of the evening was Prof. Marion Dexter Learned, head of the Germanic Department at the University of Pennsylvania, who addressed the meeting on "Germanistik und litterarisches Schafifen in Amerika."

Two of the topics touched upon were the first German grammar published in America, and the influence of German literature upon the transcendentalists. In closing, Prof. Learned expressed the hope that the interest taken in Germanic studies, and in all that is best in German literature and life, might be continually on the increase, and suggested ideal means by which this en...

The annual dinner of the Williams Alumni Association was held on December 14 at Delmonico's. President Franklin Carter and Hamilton Mabie spoke. Prof. W. M. Sloane, speaking of the city reform movement, claimed that the university settlement idea had not obtained as firm a hold as it should have obtained. "What we need," he said, "is not the whip of scorpions, but the friendly hand. What prevents our working side by side is ignorance the one of the other. The laborer who works SPECTATOR— 5 Five with his hand and the one who works with his mind should understand each other." Prof. Sloane said that the most important step necessary in the general reformation was a change in the police force. Until that was regenerated, he said, there could be no forward movement of any account. If there was a unity of purpose and of ideas ol college-bred men could, if they stood together, be a force for good thai could not be combated. Addresses were also made bv Robert Bridges and the Rev. Dr. Henr&a...
