"COLOMBIA LAW REVIEW" First Issue of the New Periodical Discussed by George L. Rives, College, Law. " COLUMBIA LAW REVIEW/" JANUARY, 1901. VOL. I, NO. I. The first issue of a legal periodical under the auspices of Columbia is an event of real significance, which should attract the attention of every alumnus and member of our University. This publication marks another step in the steady process of elevation of the Law School which has been goins: on ever since its removal from the old quarters in Great Jones Street, and of which the history is still to be told. That removal, through the mere effect of physical nearness, brought about a complete change in the conceptions of the University authorities touching the proper functions of the Law School. It ceased to be an isolated institution and became an integral part of the University. The study of the Science of Law is no longer to be pursued under our auspices by uneducated youths intent merely upon finding short cuts to professional ...

Intercollegiate Happenings [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 January 1901
Intercollegiate Happenings Aii innovation in the policy of the college towards religious worship has been inaugurated at Bowdoin. With the beginning of the present year, church attendance is left to the option of the individual student, but an accurate record is kept of his attendance and this is sent to his parents, thus removing the responsibility for church attendance from the college authorities. It is interesting to note that among Harvard's thousands of students, there are only sixty-three men privileged to wear " H.'s." Of these there are sixteen football " H.'s," fifteen crew, twelve baseball and twenty track " H.'s." The Freshman class at Dartmouth numbers 215, the largest entering class in the history of the institution. A new dormitory has been added to the number of college buildings at a cost of $45,000. The oldest college in the world is Mohammed College, at Cairo, which was a thousand years old when Oxford was founded. It has 11,000 students. An international conferen...
Hjertberg Wins Dawn-of-the-century Race [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 January 1901
Hjertberg Wins Dawn-of-the-cen-tury Race It is not generally known that " Ernie " Hjertberg, the present trainer of the Columbia Track Team, was the first man to finish in the Dawn-of-the-Century foot race held under the auspices of the New York World at midnight last Monday; hut such was the case, and " Ernie " has added another triumph to his long record of achievements. As a reward for his victory over all competitors he received fifty dollars in gold, but he prizes his success more than the mere mercenary value of the reward. " Ernie," in explaining afterwards how he won the foot-race, said: " I never started in a race under such circumstances or conditions as prevailed in the Evening World's Dawn-of-the-Century contest. The most experienced cross-country runner never faced such an ordeal as was presented at several points of the course. " As to the race itself, apart from the start at one Hundred and Twentyfifth Street, it was pretty fair for a straight course as far as The Wor...

Employment for Students [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 January 1901
Employment for Students The Committee on Employment for Students has been unusually active this year. Since the first of last June they have recommended 140 students to 60 different places. Of these 36 reported as successful and earned amounts ranging from $1.50 t05350.00, amounting in total to $2,454.25. The most popular and most profitable employment is in private tutoring. Next comes teaching in night schools and private schools. There are comparatively few opportunities for waiting on table, that used to be so general an occupation in the New England colleges; but a few students have places where they wait for their board. Several positions have been obtained in the Library Gymnasium and University Bookstore. Many students have found occupations as watchers and clerks on election day. Others have set up a trade in second-hand text-books. In summer a number of men were employed in hotels and steamboats and a few worked as street-car conductors.

The Treasurer of the association, whose report is criticised, is President of the largest trust company in Philadelphia, and possibly the largest in this country. No association in control o...

Varsity Basket-ball Team Loses [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 January 1901
Varsity Basket-ball Team Loses The first game played by the Varsity Basket-ball Team this season resulted in a defeat by the Y. M. C. A. Team at Paterson, N. J., on Friday evening, January 4th. The score was 24 to 9. H. Townsend and Goodman were unable to go up with the Varsity, and, in consequence, substitutes had to be put in their places. The Y. M. C. A. Team was undoubtedly much stronger and heavier than the Varsity Five, and, in addition, where the men of one had been playing together for six consecutive years, the other team was only in its infancy. The following was the line-up: Columbia Varsity. Position Y. M. C. A. F. Benjamin... .Right forward Reid Von Sholly Left forward Cadmus Cromwell Centre Towns Marston Right guard McNabe T.
