Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 June 1880
Current Topics. J HE winter's grind is past, and the summer is before us. We have closed our sanctum and dispatched the last ''copy" to the printer. To all our classmates we wish a joyful vacation, and remind them that their presence at Philadelphia and Lake George is much needed by the crew. The freshmen will, of course, need no reminder of the Harvard race, and we hope that all who can possibly do so, will be present at all these to cheer our crew, and urge them on to victory Yale is always well represented at the contests in which her representatives take part, and Columbia should not let it be said that she is behindhand in support of her men. TAT E are sorry to say that we shall not meet Yale at Lake George this year. A challenge was sent to New Haven, and a mass meeting having been called to consider the subject, it was stated as an objection, that all their energies should be concentrated on the Harvard race, that the preparation of a four would diminish the chances of the ei...
Palinurus. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 June 1880
Palinurus. (.Founded on lines 337-385, VEnead, book VI.) SLEEP. SLEEP, Palinurus, for all things are sleeping, Rest thee awhile ; 'tis the hour of rest ; Rudder and vessel confide to my keeping, Calm are the seas, and serene is the West. PALINURUS. And would'st thou bid me trust calm winds and ocean When heroes have been given to my care ? Too often have I felt their wild commotion, Unlooked for rage —thou wily Sleep, forbear ! SLEEP. Sleep, Palinurus ! around thee I'm flinging Drops from the bough that in Lethe has lain, Drops to the weary oblivion bringing, Drops that bewilder the busiest brain. * * * * * * Sleep, Palinurus ! ah, where art thou lying? Cold in the sea, 'neath the bright stars alone : Stabbed was thy heart by remorse in thy dying — Trustiest helmsman ! the guilt was my own. How did'st thou start, from thy short dream awaking ! Eyeing the ship on her desolate track ; Struggling, in vain, where the waters were breaking, Shrieking aloud, as if calling her back. Sleep, ...
Meteorological Science in 1980. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 June 1880
Meteorological Science in 1980. A storm centre was signalled in the western part of Michigan, moving eastward. It was hoped that it would pass over a place where rain has been needed for some weeks, but, unfortunately, it changed its direction and moved off to the South.— Daily Newspaper. O CENE Central Meteorological Observation Bureau at Washington. Windows all round the room, commanding extensive views, powerful telescopes at each. Complicated system of wires coming through floor to telephone and telegraph instruments. Row of several dozens of levers and switch handles. Operator, in uniform of the U. S. A., engaged in looking through telescope pointing west, to assistant, who is writing in ponderous ledger. "Bless me ! Jones, here comes that No. i rain with wind, Smith, at Springfield, 111., told us about yesterday. Didn't I tell him to keep it till I sent for it?"

Recollections of a Sophomore. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 June 1880
Recollections of a Sophomore. T AM naturally of a shy and retiring disposition, and am also rather absent-minded ; yet, when my friends ask me to visit them at their country places, I love to go. There is sometimes a little restraint at first, but that wears off. Mrs. Smyth had said, " Come out, Mr. Lawton, in the train that leaves New York at " What in thunder had she said ? Why, five o'clock ; yes, I can hear her now saying, " the train that leaves New York at five." But then, has not Mr. Smyth told me time and again that he always reaches home at five? and I was to go with him. Four o'clock, of course, just one hour, that's the train, that's the one I'm going in. The carriage was to meet us at the country station ; but no Mr. Smyth on the train, and no carriage at the station. I hired a hack. The horses, I noticed, were of slender and delicate frame, and folds of sheepskin were placed under the harness to insure ease and comfort. We drove through a lovely country in the finest gl...
Commencement. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 June 1880
Commencement. One Hundred and Twenty-Sixth Commencement took place June 9th at the Academy of Music. The house was well filled, and the boxes presented the usual array of pretty faces. At half-past ten the trustees, faculty, and invited guests, marched down the centre aisle to Bernstein's excellent music, and took their places on the stage. Among the guests on the platform were Charles O'Connor, Rev. Howard Crosby, and Prof. Joseph Le Conte of the University of California. The Rev. Dr. Duffie, our Chaplain, opened the exercises with a prayer, and following this, interspersed with music, came the ORATIONS. 1. GREEK SALUTATORY —WILLIAM W. SCRUGHAM. 2. LATIN POEM —HENRY A.

Eighty's Class Dinner. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 June 1880
Eighty's Class Dinner. HE graduating class assembled on the evening of May 18th at Union Square Hotel for the farewell dinner. It has held four dinners while in college, all of which have been fairly well attended, and the last was pronounced the best of them all. The class assembled at the hotel at seven o'clock, and at half-past seven the dinner was ready, and all were ready for dinner. In the absence of the President, Mr. Morgan, the Vice-President, sat at the head, while Mr. W. H. Roome was placed at the foot of the table. After a very elaborate dinner, the toasts were declared in order, and the following is the list: TOASTS. CLASS OF 'BO, . Vice-President Livingston. COLUMBIA COLLEGE, . . Mr. Waterbury.

Eighty-Four. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 June 1880
Eighty-Four. J7IGHTY has left us, and their presence will be often missed from the halls of our Alma Mater, but Eighty-four will go a long way to- wards filling the gap thus made, and, as far as numbers are concerned, will fill it to repletion. The incoming freshman class will probably be as large as its predecessor, but it is an apparent fact that there are but few men who have thus far come up who promise to turn out good athletes and oarsmen, the majority of the class being small men and a great many of them quite young. In 'B2 the extreme ages were 14 years for the youngest and 26 for the oldest. In 'B3 the ages ranged from 14 to 21, and in 'B4 the youngest is 14 while the oldest is 22. In the School of Arts twenty-one men entered without conditions. The following is a list of their names : H. A. Anderson, C. H. Genning, E. S. Appleby, J. B. Harriott, A. E. Beckstein, A. D. Henry, E. M. Cameron, W. A. Jones, C. M. Cannon, P. E. Livingston, C. R. Carter, F. Moeller, E. Cohen, M. ...
The Graduating Class. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 June 1880
The Graduating Class. CKLDOM can the historian quote from as high an authority as President Barnard for proof of his assertions. In his address at commencement he said: " I can safely say that no better class, morally, has ever graduated from Columbia, no better class, intellectually, has ever graduated from Columbia, and the departure of no class from Columbia have we (the Faculty) ever regretted so much as that of 'Eighty." Prefacing my brief summary with these remarks, the reader may think that enough has been said, but as custom has granted the permission, each year to speak of the graduating class, so also may the reader's pardon be granted. Four years ago, ninety-three young, unsophisticated youths applied for admission to the classic halls of Columbia, and seventy-three of these, in the following October, composed the class of 'BO. Oh! how far off then seemed 1880, but now it seems like a dream in the night, so soon is it gone and passed away. At the beginning of sophomore ye...
About College. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 June 1880
About College. | HE eleven walked away with the St. George team on the 9th; score, 160 to 133. THREE sp. gr.'s in 'BO. REJOICE 'B2, junior electives next year. FRENCH, Spanish, German, and Italian at the option of next fall's freshmen. SOME men in 'B4 entered their ages as 15 3-4, 16 1-2, etc. It is well to be exact in everything. ONLY three freshmen were conditioned in Mathematics in the final examination. 'B4 is beginning early. Several sub-freshmen carried canes on the days of their trial examinations. SEVEN hundred and ninety dollars worth of prizes, etc., were given at the last Commencement. THE date of the freshman race with Harvard has been again changed. The day now agreed upon is the 7th of July, and not the sth. HARPER'S Weekly contains some cuts of the prize winners at the recent dog show, from photographs by Pach. They are very well done. A SMALL bird fell from one of the trees and was killed. Someone hung it on the wall with a notice, "This is a freshman, killed by Gree...

The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 June 1880
The College World. AMHERST: — A lawn-tennis match with Trinity is talked of. The senior reception took place on June nth. The sophomores will have a class supper on June 25th, at New London. The sophomores are required to write essays on the great debate between Webster and Hayne. The eyes of the seniors are being examined, and the results are to be compared with those of their freshman year, to see what effect four years of study have had in producing near-sightedness. The bicycle club now numbers twelve members and expects to hold annual races. Some of the Alumni are to present the college with portraits of President Seelye and Professor W. S. Tyler. They will probably be hung in the library. CORNELL: — Cornell stands second in the New York State base ball championship ; Union leading. They think they have the best walker in the countrv at Cornell. J The senior class contains 80 members; 71 men and 9 women. It originally contained 223. The only Methodist in the class is the son of...
Our Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 June 1880
Our Exchanges. T N our last number we spoke of the Harvard papers. Those from Yale now come before us. First, there is the Lit., taken first because it is the oldest, and also because it holds the first place among the college literary magazines. Solid but not ponderous. THE Record and the Courant give each other a hard struggle for supremacy, but we think the Record on the whole is ahead. Both it and the News take delight in referring to the Courant's advertisement of " Horseford's Acid Phosphates." The News is a good daily, but now and then forgets itself when making remarks about other colleges, and we noticed a curious mistake in it the other day, into which it was led by the faulty wording of an article in the Times , crediting Oxford with a standing high jump of 6 ft. i 1-2 in., and comparing it with Soren's magnificent performance in the Intercollegiate. THE West has some superior journals, and some others which are good for nothing but the waste basket. The Chronicle belongs...
