Lectures in Biology [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 January 1901
Lectures in Biology The seventh annual series of University Biological Lectures will be delivered by Gary N. Calkins of the Department of Zoology. The course will begin on Friday, February 15th, and will continue, as stated below, on Tuesday and Friday afternoons till March Ist. The lectures will be given in 305 Schermerhorn at five o'clock. The subject will be the "Protozoa," the lowest known forms of animal life. The explanations will be as far as possible untechnical and the lectures are not intended simply for students of biology. As far as possible they will be illustrated by specimens. These will be thrown on the screen by a stereoptican with a microscope attachment. The light is generated as in an ordinary stereoptican but after leaving the collecting lense it is passed through a solution of alum to absorb the heat and then thrown on the slide. In front of the slide is an adapted form of microscope by which the rays are focused on the screen so as to produce a highly magnifie...

We print a letter in this issue from the Captain of the Crew. The statement of the rowing situation there set forth is clear and explicit, and needs but little comment. SPECTATOR is aware that the situation this year is unusually promising outside of the lack of funds. The coach —Mr. Hanlon —is an experienced professional oarsman who was the acknowledged champion i of the world for many years, having defeated both Courtney, the Cornell coach, and Ellis Ward of Pennsylvania. The material at present is good and with added numbers after the mid-year exams should be exceptional. The graduates are back of us and are willing to do their share of financial assistance. It rests with the undergraduates to do their share also. Let every man see to it that Columbia is represented on the water this year. See that you become a member of the boatclub, and get your chum to join too. Columbia's strenuous efforts to clear the atmosphere around college athletics has had a beneficial effect on the oth...
Correspondence [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 January 1901
Correspondence IVhile we are glad to publish any correspondence that may be sent us, we are not responsible for the sentiments expressed. Those who wish their correspondence published anonymously, must attach their own signature. Unsigned letters will receive no attention. To the Editor of COLUMBIA SPECTATOR : In the course of the somewhat extended correspondence which has thus far been carried on, in regard to the management of our football interests during the past year, there has been evident an unfortunate tendency to quibble as to details of the question under discussion, and a failure to reach what is undoubtedly the vital feature of the entire controversy. It is not the perhaps pardonable errors, or the extravagance displayed in certain items, which has aroused the stu-dent-sentiment against the present management, but the feeling awakened is rather one of discontent, due to a lack of confidence, and a conviction that there exists an absence of inherent ability in the present...

College Fields [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 January 1901
College Fields Copy what is good in thy brother. Soldiers' Field at Harvard has a rather interesting history. It is made up of a hundred odd acres, which lie upon the south bank of the Charles River, from five to ten minutes' walk from the college. At present it looks like a dreary waste of meadow land, with no other improvements on it than a gridiron, surrounded by huge stands, a baseball grand stand of wooden construction, holding probably 400 people, and a brick locker building, containing dressing rooms, etc. It has not yet been fenced in, and on football days people without tickets for the stands are driven back and kept away from the turnstile entrances leading to the amphitheatre by squads of mounted police from Cambridge. The streets leading up to the field are roped off, and people without tickets prevented from crowding around the various turnstile entrances. The placidly flowing Charles River forms its left boundary. To the east it seems to stretch away almost to the spir...
Oxford—Cambridge Football [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 January 1901
Oxford—Cambridge Football The great Cambridge-Oxford football match of Dec. 12, 1900, is said to have been one of the best exhibitions of "Rugby" ever seen in London. To American eyes it presented a spectacle both interesting and novel. There were the familiar goal posts and cross bars. Most of our lines were missing from the field, only five, beside the boundaries surviving. There were perhaps 6,000 spectators in attendance, quiet and orderly ; no flags, no songs, no yells. Presently the rival teams entei and are greeted with faint applause. There are fifteen men on each side, dressed in jersey, running trousers, golf stockings, and heavy shoes. Knees are unprotected. A few wear light bandages protecting the ears, but there are no pads or nose-guards. The ball is kicked off in the American fashion-, but thereafter when "put in play" it is tossed between two struggling squads of "forwards" (our rush lines) who try either to drive it along the ground by sheer strength, or to "heel it...
Cornell Chess Match [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 22 January 1901
Cornell Chess Match At a meeting of the chess club, on Thursday afternoon, it was decided to accept the challenge for a match with Cornell. The challenge from Harvard for a telegraphic match was, however, refused, on the ground that it would take up too much time. Considering the fact, too, that we have already beaten Harvard at chess this year, the match would appear unnecessary. On the other hand, the meeting with Cornell wdl give great satisfaction, as Cornell won the triangular tournament, and the match with her will decide the championship of the eastern colleges. The match will take place at Ithaca, and will be played sometime near Ash Wednesday, the trip occupying three days. The teams will consist of six men on a side. Sewall, Falk, Keeler, Shroeder, and two men not yet chosen representing Columbia. About forty-five dollars are necessary for the trip, and it is purposed to raise this sum among the students by twen-ty-five cent subscriptions. Surely this should not be a diffi...
