Fencing Championships [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 January 1901
Fencing Championships In the contest for the junior foils championship of the United States, held under the auspices of the Amateur Fencers' League of America at the New York A. C. Tuesday night, Columbia was represented by E. J. Kelly, A. L. Queneau, F. B. Clark and E. S. Hewitt. Teams representing Yale, the Fencers' Club and the New York A. C. also competed. The contest was carried out under new conditions, the competitors being divided into two groups, which were judged simultaneously. The best two men were selected from each group to compete in the finals. Although the victory went to J. L. Erving of the Fencers' Club, the Columbia men made a very creditable showing, both Queneau and Clark taking places in the final group. Queneau finished in the lead in the first group with five straight victories, but in the finals succeeded in winning only one of his three bouts, thus taking third place in the contest. Clark was fourth. Following is the summary of the scores of the Columbia m...
At Work on Buildings [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 January 1901
At Work on Buildings Ground was broken Wednesday for Earle Hall. A gang of about twenty men and several teams have been at work for two days on the foundations. Orders for the stone are already being filled at the quarries, much of the iron work has been ordered and every precaution taken to secure uninterrupted progress on the building. The iron-work, the lack of which delayed the work on University Hall for so long, has at last been delivered and the central trusses are being put up. All the material needed for the erection of the temporary roof is now on hand and if weather permits the work should be completed in a month. Like the old roof over the gym and power-house this one will be of wood covered with tar and pebbles. As soon as it is made weather-proof, the old roof will be torn away and work on the interior can be begun. The height of the old roof at present makes the new story seem rather low. When it is torn away the real height of the story —fourteen feet—will be apparen...
PROFESSOR PUPIN'S INVENTION Long Distance Telephoning Possible—Sold to Bell Telephone Co—Resistance Overcome. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 January 1901
PROFESSOR PUPIN'S INVENTION Long Distance Telephoning Possible— Sold to Bell Telephone Co—Resistance Overcome. Columbia has added still another to her record of scientific honors, Michael Idvorsky Pupin, adjunct professor of mechanics, has perfected a practical invention for ocean telephony, which will make telephoning to London a possibility. Prof. Pupin has been working for several years on his system, but it was not till six months ago that the last obstacle was overcome. Since that time the American Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company, to whom the invention was sold, has been testing the scheme and has discovered that it works perfectly. Prof. Pupin says that scientifically the question of ocean telephony is solved beyond doubt, and that the only feature which retards the work is the commercial one of laying new cables. Prof. Pupin said, when interviewed, that it was difficult to explain the invention so as to be understood by the lay mind. Briefly, however, the question has be...
Prof. Jackson on Zoroaster [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 January 1901
Prof. Jackson on Zoroaster Prof. Jackson of the Department of Indo-Iranian Languages delivered last Tuesday a lecture entitled "Zoroaster, the Prophet of Ancient Iran." It was a simple narrative of the life of the great teacher, intensely interesting and thoroughly comprehensible to the average listener. Just as they have tried to prove Brohma to be a myth, pure and simple, just so have many people tried to prove Zoroaster. But Prof. Jackson, with a mass of authority behind him, even goes so far as to place the date of his birth some seven centuries before the Christian era. He explains away the statement, found in many classics and Oriental writers, that Zoroaster was born many centuries before this time by the fact that his influence was at first considered to have been prevalent on the earth for that length of time and that later this idea became confused with the idea that he had been born at that time. One of the most interesting incidents in the life of Zoroaster, as told by P...

CREWS IN TRAINING Candidates for Varsity and Freshman Eights Now Hard at Work in the Gymnasium—List of Men to Date. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 January 1901
CREWS IN TRAINING Candidates for Varsity and Freshman Eights Now Hard at Work in the Gymnasium—List of Men to Date. In response to the call made by Capt. Irvine about forty men came out last Monday afternoon to try for places in the Varsity boats. There were conspicuous for their absence, however, a number of experienced oarsmen. The majority of these men have signified their intention of appearing as candidates as soon as the mid-year examinations are over. Oi the new men little can be said except that there has never before been such an abundance of promising new material. Coach Hanlan started every one immediately at work. In former years when work was first begun on the rowing machines, the men have only been allowed to take up one part oi the stroke at a time —first the swing, then the swing with the oar with straight arms, next the stroke was finished out and finally the slide was used. As opposed to this system on Monday the men were put on the machines and were allowed to us...
Hockey Team Reorganization [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 January 1901
Hockey Team Reorganization The action of the faculty committee in disqualifying the members of the Hockey team which played in Pittsburg has made a reorganization of the Hockey team necessary. The following men were disqualified: R. S. Woodward, 1901, S.; A. N. Lawrence, 1901, S.; A. Wolff, 1903, S.; D. S. Hudson, 1901, S.; A. Coggeshall, 1903, S.; S. Campbell, 1904, S.; W. Duden, 1902, L., and F. I. O'Dwyer, 1903, S. These men comprising with two or three exceptions- all the best players in the University will be sorely missed from the team. G. A. Ever, 1901, S., who has played on the Varsity for the last two years and George De Witt, 1903, S., substitute last year, together with the Freshman team will form a nucleus for the reorganized team. Any man in the University who plays hockey is needed at practice. The schedule follows : Jan. 18—Brown vs. Pennsylvania at Philadelphia. Jan. 19 —Yale vs. Princeton, at New York. Jan. 26—Columbia vs. Princeton, at New York. Feb. 2 —Yale vs. Pe...

"SESSION OF THE SENATE" Philolexian Tries a New Method of Conducting Its Weekly Debates. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 January 1901
"SESSION OF THE SENATE" Philolexian Tries a New Method of Conducting Its Weekly Debates. To increase the interest in the weekly meetings, the Philolexian Society has decided to vary the cut-and-dried order of debate by holding a "Session of the Senate." The idea is to imitate the method of procedure in the United States Senate. Men from other states than New York are supposed to take positions characteristic of their section of the country. If there is any section of the country not represented in this way some of the New York members will undertake to represent it. The Senate rules adapted to the size of the society and the limited time govern the discussion. This variation of the society's regular program was tried Wednesday evening as an experiment, but it proved quite successful and will probably be repeated in the future. The attendance was good and interest keen as the novel idea had been much discussed during the past week. President M. H. Cardozo acted as president of the mi...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 January 1901
We recommend to the consideration of the authorities the question of the free distribution of the University Catalogue. The price charged at present is merely nominal and can hardly be any considerable factor in the credit side of the printing account. If every Columbia man undergraduate and alumnus were given a catalogue upon request, there is no doubt in our minds that the result would be beneficial. For Columbia men the catalogue will make good reading, it will impress them with the importance and manysidedness of this University of ours and make them the more willing to do whatever in them lies to aid her progress. It is a good thing to know yourself, it is better still to realize your responsibility. The Columbia Catalogue will help you to see that as a Columbia man you represent the product of a great educational system with all of the attendant associations that make a man. The Columbia Catalogue will help you to show others how similar things may be realized by them. T t is ...
Correspondence [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 18 January 1901
Correspondence While we are glad to publish any correspondence that may be sent us, we are not responsible for the sentiments expressed. Those who zvish their correspondence published anonymously, must attach their own signature. Unsigned letters will receive no attention. Jan. 16, 1901. EDITOR COLUMBIA SPECTATOR: DEAR SIR : —ln your last issue you called attention to the lack of interest in debating. Let me call attention to another example of the same thing. At the annual debate between Philolexian and Barnard on Dec. 18th these very few students present were even less than at regular meetings of the societies. I believe that one reason for the trouble is that there are often several meetings on the same night. For example, next Monday there is to be a benefit for the Deutscher Verein and a meeting of King's Crown. Many men who like to go to both are prevented and both events lose some supporters. On the night of the Cornell debate trials there was a meeting of a law club and also...
