The Chaplain's Letter [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
The Chaplain's Letter EDITOR OF COLUMBIA SPECTATOR: Answering your very kind invitation to write a letter for your excellent newspaper of our University, I am moved first of all to send my heartiest Christmas greetings to all of your readers, and then to thank you for the privilege of this communication. Little wonder is it that the anniversary of the birth of the most wonderful being this world had ever known should inspire more than any other event the gratitude and cheer of the world. Everybody who in any way can be happy is happy at this time. The universal heart is glad. Men everywhere are generous and those who have much minister cheerfully to those who lack. The familiar greeting in our language is "Merry Christmas." That tells the story. But of all who profess to be happy, how many are trying to be so. There's the pathos of much that seems like merriment. Too much of the rejoicing lacks spontaneity. One who has to try to have a good time really misses the object of his searc...
The Woes of the Student [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
The Woes of the Student CRAW FORDS VILLE, Ind., Nov. 28.—President Kane of Wabash College threw a bomb into the ranks of students to-day when he announced the names of over a dozen whom the faculty had decided to expel for "playing; the slot machines." For some time the parents of the students have been writing to the college asking why the boys required so much expense money. The president found out that they were playing the slot machines, and this morning expelled them. The sensation caused by their dismissal caused a special session of the Police Board, which, in turn, ordered every slot machine in Crawfordsville closed. About 200 have been in operation for two years. No effort of the dismissed students to be reinstated was listened to by the faculty.— N. Y. Sun.

Twenty "co-eds" were barred by Dr. Harper from the dinner which he gave to the Chicago University football team last Thursday. It had been announced that each member of the team would be permitted to bring a young woman student. The names of those invited by the men were submitted to the dean, who discovered that twenty out of the twenty-five had not reached the necessary standard in their studies. At the suggestion of the dean, Dr. Harper "flunked" twenty girls on the dinner. None of them had been overcut.

The students at Buclapesth University have shown such open aversion to the attendance of female students at the lectures that the mothers of these young ladies have resolved to accompany their daughters. They have obtained permission to attend the lectures as supernumerary auditors, and the opera singer, Arabella Szilagyi, whose daughter is entered for the philosophical course, was the first to make her appearance in the hall as her daughter's guardian. This move on the part of the mothers appears to have had its intended effect, for the young men now allow the female students with their formidable escorts to seat themselves quietly. — London Telegraph,

Library Administration [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
Library Administration Two of the cases containing the card catalogue of the Library have been moved from the card catalogue room to the corridor near the entrance of the reading room. The change was made in order to relieve the crowded condition of the room in front of the loan desk. The corridor is now regarded as part of the catalogue room and Dr. Canfield requests that it be used as a corridor as little as possible.
EARL HALL Plans Approved for the Building and Ground to Be Broken — Details of Construction and Appearance. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
EARL HALL Plans Approved for the Building and Ground to Be Broken — Details of Construction and Appearance. The contract for Earl Hall has been awarded, the plans have been prepared and filed with the building department, and in the course of a few weeks ground for the new building will have been broken. In the plans prepared by the architects, McKim, Mead, and White, the structure appears, in a small way, somewhat as the Library would look if the east and west wings were removed. The ground plan of the hall is a rectangle 60x100 feet, while the height of the building from the ground level to the ball which surmounts the copper dome, is 105 feet. The building will be situated adjoining Engineering, and will occupy a part of the present site of West Hall. The main approach will be from the east, up an an ample flight of stone steps to a portico, whose roof is supported by four limestone columns. From the portico is the entrance to the reception hall which with its large fireplaces, d...

Letter from Dean Hutton [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
Letter from Dean Hutton December 18, 1900. To the Editor of SPECTATOR: It gives me great pleasure to accept the invitation of the courtesy of your columns for a line of greeting to the multitude of Columbia men who should receive the congratulations to which they are entitled upon the appearance of the last issue of SPECTATOR for the nineteenth century. Of all the centuries which have preceded, the nineteenth century at its close presents to the students of applied Science the most stimulating retrospect. It has seen the transmission of the seaboard territory of the United States from the purely agricultural condition, with its grinding toil and its limited return, into the manufacturing era, which is the era of the city, of accumulated wealth, of production on a large scale, and of the development of art and literature. It would take longer than the limited space at your disposal and at mine to discuss fully the significance of the development of power as a means contributing to th...
Letter from Dean Van Amringe [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
Letter from Dean Van Amringe To the Editor of SPECTATOR: Dear Sir: The question of athletics in college, like the spirit of Banquo in the play of Macbeth, will not "down,," and seems 'to have, (occasionally with some people, the power of that insistent ghost in creating consternation. I believe thoroughly in the beneficial influence of well conducted college athletics. I have said this many, many times before, but say it again here in answer to a question put to me, not long since, by SPECTATOR with regard to the football team and their game with the Carlisle Indians. 1 may say, further, in reply to the same question, that, while I rejoice at every victory gained by Columbia athletes, success or failure makes 110 difference in my belief—provided always that the men train faithfully and act honorably, as they do. It might possibly be well to declare, in this connection, that excellence in athletic sports is not, in my opinion or in that of any college officer 01* student whom I know,...

Baseball Letter [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 December 1900
Baseball Letter In an article purporting to lay down plans, the baseball management for the coming spring, perhaps a short review of last year's work will not be out of place, in order to explain how the plans of the coming year will differ from those of 1900, and to show under what difficulties and heavy handicaps last year's management labored. In the first place it will perhaps be remembered that the number of candidates that turned out was grossly inadequate to enable the coach to pick out a team that could cope successfully with our other Eastern universities. It is impossible to pick a good nine, not to mention a much needed scrub from twenty or twenty-five candidates. To enable a coach to select a team he must have a much larger number, and to this must be added some spout, an item which was conspicuous last year by its absence. It is certainly unfortunate, not to say disgraceful, that the minute a team is picked for the first game, the rest of the squad quits, making it impo...
