INDOOR MEET Host Successful Indoor Meet in the History of Athletics at Columbia—No Record Performances. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
INDOOR MEET Host Successful Indoor Meet in the History of Athletics at Columbia—No Record Performances. The indoor meet held last Saturday evening was perhaps the most successful event of its kind ever held by the Track Association. The meet was held at the Eighth Regiment Armory, Park avenue and 94th street. No records were broken, but the track is not a fast one, and no spikes were allowed. Hjertberg was unsuccessful in his attempt to lower the one-mile indoor record of 4 minutes 28 2-5 seconds, held by himself. He was unable tQ make the distance in less than 4 minutes 41 1-5 seconds. The military relay race proved to be somewhat of a disappointment. At the last minute the Thirteenth Regiment team withdrew, leaving the Twenty-second and the Twenty-third regiments to fight it out. The race was won by the Twenty-second Regiment. Long, of the Twenty-third, was unable to regain the ground lost by the other men on his team. The one-mile handicap, open to Columbia men only, proved to be...

Chess Club Again Defeated [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
Chess Club Again Defeated The Chess Club was defeated by the Brooklyn Chess Club, on Friday evening, by a score of SJ/4 to 2J/2. A great improvement was noticed in the playing of the men, over that of last Tuesday, when they lost to the Dutch Arms Club, but considering the age and greater experience of their opponents, defeat was inevitable. The gentlemen of the Brooklyn Chess Club showed great interest in the playing of the Columbia men, and predicted success for them in the coming intercollegiate contest. The games at the eight boards were as follows: No. 1. —W. C. Bixby (B.) vs. Fallc (C.). Guioco opening. Falk blundered in middle game, losing opportunity to take a pawn, and was forced to resign. No. 2.— J. C. Elwell (B.) vs. Sewall (C.). Scotch game. In winning a pawn Sewall made an unsound combination and lost the game. No. 3.— J. R. Taber (B.) vs. Keeler (C.). French defense. Keeler sacrificed a knight for perpetuated check, and after taking his opponent's queen, won in 40 mov...

Barnard Wins Debate The annual debate 'between Barnard and Philolexian was held last night in the large lecture room in Havemeyer HalL About 200 people were present to hear the discussion. Dean Van Atttringe presided, and Prof. R. S. Woodward, Prof. G. E. Woodberry and Prof. H. L. Osgood acted as judges. The subject was, "Resolved , That the second part of the second section of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constituton should be repealed." The section referred to provides for cutting down the Congressional representation of those States that restrict manhood suffrage. The Philolexian speakers—J. T. Willims, 1901, G. H. Butler, 1903, and M. H. Cardozo, 1901 —took the affirmative. They urged the repeal of the clause because it imposes a penalty on the States for exercising their lawful rights, because it is against the spirit of the Constitution as a whole; because there is no precedent for its enforcement; because it is unjust in basing representation 011 voters, and because it is ...

Lacrosse Letter [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
Lacrosse Letter In writing an article on lacrosse, it may be in order to give a shott review of ts career since its recent permanent establishment at Columbia. Three years ago a few enthusiastic players who had learned the game at some other university, signified their intenton of starting a team to represent Columbia. A call was issued for candidates, but 18 men responded. From the fall of '9B up to the present time our lacrosse team has had an up-hill fight to establish itself. No interest was shown by the undergraduates, except the few men who were playing on the team. The season of '99 opened with better prospects, although little or nothing was done in the fall of that year. With but 30 men to support and also supply the team with players, Columbia lacrosse team succeeded in defeating Harvard and also in winning 50 per cent, of the games. Last year our team proved that lacrosse was with us to stay, and that it had a right to rank with the best teams representing our University....
Track Team [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
Track Team To the Editor of SPECTATOR: DEAR SIR : It seems to me a fitting time for a few words concerning the work on the track for the coming season, and I thank you for this opportunity. The indoor meet at the Eighth Regiment Armory last Saturday night brought to a close the autumn season, and its results are valuable as an evidence of whatever we may expect when the more serious spring season opens. Taking into consideration the fact that several of the most promising candidates, including all the football men, were unable to participate in the events last Saturday, we may fairly say that the material for a strong team has been already unearthed. We have a bunch of good sprinters, though we lack a first class man in this event, several excellent middle distance men in Bishop, Adams, Atkins and Marshall, and at east two long distance men, Marshall and Duden, who are considerably above the average. Steve Barker is clearing the sticks with his old-time speed and dash, and the weigh...

Class of '99 [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
Class of '99 (The following paper has been written by a member of the class.) On the evening of Dec. 28th the Class of '99 will meet at Shanley's to hold its second annual dinner. This class had the good fortune of beginning its upper-classman existence with Columbia's first year 011 the new sight, and was enabled by this circumstance to initiate many customs which now seem assured of permanency. The revival of senior singing, the publication of a comprehensive class-book, and the evening festival on the Green during class-day week are a few of '99's claims upon the gratitude of later classes which have already begun and will surely continue to improve upon the example set by the imitators of these various features in Columbia's life. Spectator in especial has cause to thank '99, as its change into a real newspaper was due to the energy of its '99 editor and the interest and cooperation of several of his classmates. '99 looks with unmixed satisfaction upon Spectator's improvement ov...
