Miss Rosie's Rebuke. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1881
Miss Rosie's Rebuke. MISS MAYFAIR, just eighteen, is giving a German; She stands in the parlor at this, her first ball, To welcome her guests, while the strains of "The Syrens" Comes in from the band stationed out in the hall. A slight screen of smilax, bedecked with carnations, Protects the musicians from draughts which may blow Through the doorway, and also, conceals in a measure, The stairs which lead down to the regions below. The guests that Miss Mayfair expects have been chosen With greatest of care from the " List" and " Elite;" And when it is time for the usual supper, You will find that Pinard spreads that usual treat. Miss Mayfair salutes, with a grave little courtesy, Her guests as they pass through the drawing-room door, But reseiwes a sweet smile and the warmest of welcomes Till her dearest friend, Rosie, appears on the floor. Miss Rosie is pretty, is bright, and she knows it ; She is also aware of the time as to when She should get off just one of those soft little not...
Some Desirable Changes. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1881
Some Desirable Changes. CHANGE THE PRESENT MARKING SYSTEM. 111. VII, Section 2 of the Statutes reads as follows : " Each professor or other instructor shall report to the president at the end of every month after the first month of each year, a numerical scale of the standing of all the students under his instruction, according to a standard prescribed by the Board of the College —the order of merit to be determined by examination conducted in any manner which the professor may choose." That this may not be misunderstood, Section 3 commences: " Besides the monthly examinations provided for in the foregoing section, there shall be two public examinations of all the classes every year." The Faculty then take the matter in hand, and announce the maximum mark obtainable. The per cent, necessary for passing is not given, and the only reference made to the subject is in one of the regulations which states that " a delinquent student, examined in any subject and reported 'passed,' shall re...
A Visit from a Divine Bard. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1881
A Visit from a Divine Bard. r T was a cold, stormy day, and the SPECTATOR'S editorial board surrounding the fire in their cozy office were engaged in permeating the atmosphere with the aroma of Kinney's "Sweet Caporal," and discussing the latest exchanges, when the door, which had been slightly ajar, opened wide, and disclosed an odd-looking genius, short and stout, spectacles, long, flowing hair, surmounted by a polo cap, and shrill, squeaky voice. Without waiting for an introduction, he stepped forward and addressed the chief: "I understand that you require the services of a poet. Allow me to remark, in the words of the illustrious Julius C., 'I am the man not one of your fifty cents on the dollar kind, but a regular A i divine bard, who never has to wait for an inspiration, but always has a lot of assorted kinds and flavors on hand. " I have been a poet from my earliest infancy, and, while being rocked to sleep by a crosseyed nurse, used to murmur verses by the hour. I inherit th...
Correspondence [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1881
Correspondence To the E litors of the SPECTATOR : J HE RE seems to me to be such a lack of college enthusiasm in the freshman class that I wish to write, and see if they cannot be stirred up in some way or other. The last three freshman classes set about organizing a foot-ball team as soon as they entered college, and 'B2 was eminently successful in her games, while the others were more or less so. Even if the team does not win, the men receive the greatest benefit in the practice it gives those who will probably form future 'Varsity teams, and it is a matter for deep regret that the present freshman class did not exert itself, and form a team capable of giving the freshman teams of the other colleges a good game. I would rather have a class "fresh," than dull and lacking in ambition and pride in their college, for time will remove a good deal of the former, while I do not know of anything that will put backbone in a class that has not got any of that very necessary article. Look at...
About College [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1881
About College HTHE volunteer classes in Greek and Latin have been suspended until after the examinations. THE Columbiad is now out. AN optional German class, similar to Dr. Meriam's B ov'kfj, has been formed in 'B3. AT a meeting of the sophomore class held on Friday, the 21st, Messrs.

Stuart, 'Bl ; Vice-President, J. Garter, 'B2 ; Secretary, L. D. Ray, 'B2. THE class in Latin have been engaged upon the twenty-first book of Livy, and are fully persuaded that Hannibal was one of the worst men that ever lived. Book XXII will be taken up next term. THE balloting for Junior Reception Marshals resulted in the election of Messrs. Pupke and Whitney. The class also decided to adopt the " Oxford cap," to be worn on the College grounds for the remainder of their college course. AT the last meeting of the SPECTATOR Association, ...

The College World [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1881
The College World DARTMOUTH: — The quartette was very successful on a recent trip which it took, giving seven entertainments. Tobogganing is becoming popular. The standard of admission to the Chandler Department has been lowered. BOWDOIN: — The Orient inveighs against certain college customs, amongst them the " Freshman Peanut Drunk," which we, from the name, should judge to be a scene of horrible orgies. The seniors enjoy twenty hours of recitation a week, in addition to five or six more of compulsory college attendance. HARVARD: — The Harvard Union have formed a legislative branch which will remain in session from Feb. 24th to June Ist. The semi-annual examinations begin on Jan. 27th and end on Feb. 12th.

Minos Rhadamanthus Our Exchanges [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1881
Minos Rhadamanthus Our Exchanges WE quote from the Nassau Lit. the following: —Ride a Greek Horse To the end of the course, To see a crapk Senior pass on a crack horse ; Cribs on his fingers and cribs in his clothes, He shall have go wherever he goes. IT is strange how great minds think alike, as may be seen by comparing this clipping with some verses which appeared in our columns on October ist, 1879: Riding a horse Throughout his whole course, Is the gay Junior's Only resource. Cribs in his fingers And specs on his nose, Oh ! he shall scoop rnaxes Wherever he goes ! THE Tablet has our best wishes for the future. SPEAKING of illustrations reminds us that the Tablet celebrated the close of its 13th volume by a cut illustrating the various noteworthy events of the past year at Trinity. It is just a little rough, also, for the Targum to copy one of our poems, and give the credit of it to the Crimson ; but we will forgive them, if they take care it sha'n't happen again. MESSRS. S. H. W...
