RELAY TEAM WINS Finishes First in the 47th Regiment Games—Eleven Opponents Distanced —Interesting Contest. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 January 1901
RELAY TEAM WINS Finishes First in the 47th Regiment Games —Eleven Opponents Distanced — Interesting Contest. Columbia runners gained a signal victory Wednesday night in the relay race held by the 47th Regiment A. U. and the Brooklyn A. C. at the 47th Regiment armory, Marcy avenue and Lynch street, Brooklyn. Twelve teams were entered and their ranks contained much good relay material, so that it was as interesting a contest as has been seen for a long time. The spectators were wildly demonstrative when Van Cise, the Columbia representative in the second relay, sprinted to the front and, slipping steadily away from the pack, gained an advantage of fifteen yards. The Columbia team consisted of W. P. S. Earle, W. M. Van Cise, C. B. Marshall, and O. N. Bishop. The twelve men first on the track made a rush for positions and all went around the corner in close order for the first lap, Earle, the first Columbia representative 011 the track gaming third place and holding it to the finish of ...

"Morningside." [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 January 1901
"Morningside." The Morningside looks somewhat unfamiliar in its new type and smaller margins, but its contents are of the kind its traditions lead us to expect, though less rich in poetic inspiration. The verse is distinctly below the average ; Mr. Kelly's quatrain opens with two imposing lines, but drops at the close with somewhat even of pathos; "The Roses of Persia" has a lyric lilt, but is vague and without inherent poetic form. It is to be regretted that the writing of verse at Columbia is no longer receiving the interest it once inspired in the undergraduates, or is not carried on to the same successful accomplishment. There are four short stories in this number, all interesting though unequal in merit. "When a Clipped Bird Flies His Cage" is a sympathetic study, well developed, of an episode in the life of a tragic race; and in the "Nothingtown Tales" we have the first of a series of tales after lines of the Canterbury Tales or the Decameron. "The Value of a Pseudonym" is not...

HAMILTON FISH Memorial Tablet in College Hall—Given by Friends and Classmates. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 January 1901
HAMILTON FISH Memorial Tablet in College Hall—Given by Friends and Classmates. A tablet to the memory of the late Hamilton Fish, Jr., of the class of '95, has been placed in Room 201 College Hall.

The tablet is 3 feet long by 1 1 / 2 feet high. A youth resting on one knee, with arms outstretched and head erect, looks yearningly before him, and consti- tutes the central figure in bold bas-re-lief. The expression of the face is singularly suggestive. On one side is a Victors' fasces surrounded with a wreath of oak leaves, and 011 the other side, in a corresponding position, is the national shield with a like wreath of oak leaves, llie inscription, also ill relief, 011 either side the figure, is as follows: "This tablet is erected to the memory of "HAMILTON FISH, JR., "Sergeant of the First United ...
Columbia University, Summer Session [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 January 1901
Columbia University, Summer Session The official announcement of the second annual summer session of Columbia University is now in the press, and will be ready for distribution in a few days. The summer session of 1901 will open on Monday, July 8, and close on Friday, August 16. Each course of instruction will consist, as last year, of thirty lectures or other exercises, but instead of being given on each of six days for five weeks, as in 1900, the instruction in 1901 will be given on five days for each of six weeks. No lectures or other academic exercises will be held on Saturdays. On those days opportunity will be given for the students to visit, under guidance, points of scenic or historic interest in the vicinity of New York, and to visit the great museums and collections in Central Park, where the chief objects of interest will be pointed out and explained.

Professor Trent in Chapel [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 January 1901
Professor Trent in Chapel Professor Trent of the English Department, gave a talk in chapel Wednesday morning on the relation of poetry to religion. Matthew Arnold said that poetry and science would take the place of religion and philosophy. We can hardly agree with this. It is true that science is a needed supplement to philosophy. It is true, also, that poetry is eternal, for it appeals to religious emotion. But it cannot take the place of religion because it does not inspire faith and conviction. Poetry, however, is an important aid to religion. It impresses the teaching of the Bible on the people. Coleridge teaches charity, Wordsworth duty, and Milton virtue. Professor Trent's remarks were listened to with the closest attention.
"Princess Proud" Rehearsal [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 January 1901
"Princess Proud" Rehearsal The Varsity Show cast and chorus rehearsed on Tuesday night in the Carnegie Building. For the first time the chorus practised some of the simpler dances that come in the opening of the first act. Their singing was much improved and is now beginning to sound as it should. After the chorus was dismissed there was a lengthy rehearsal of the cast which is slowly improving, though still somewhat backward. Pictures of all those selected will be taken at Pach's, corner of Broadway and Twenty-first street, at 10 A. M. on Saturday, instead of II o'clock, as previously announced.
HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPS Columbia Plays Her First Game on Saturday With the Princeton Seven —Preliminary Practice Promises Well [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 January 1901
HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIPS Columbia Plays Her First Game on Saturday With the Princeton Seven —Preliminary Practice Promises Well The reorganized Hockey Team will play its first game in the Intercollegiate Hockey League series to-mor-row night at 8.15 in the St. Nicholas Rink, on Sixty-sixth street near Columbus avenue. The game is the third of the series which has been played thus far this year, Yale having defeated Princeton by a score of 5 to o, and Brown having disposed of Pennsylvania by a score of 7 to o. The Varsity team is now composed of Captain Eyer, who played on the team last year; DeWitt, a last year's substitute; McKee, a first year Law man, and four members of the present Freshman seven. As the latter team has defeated the strongest school teams in New York and Brooklyn, it is reasonable to suppose that its four best players should do fairly good work tor the Varsity. Vigorous coaching is being done by the disqualified players. Each new player is being taught the fine point...

Library Methods The librarian of the University of California, Mr. Rowell, has recently returned from a trip among the libraries in the Eastern States and Europe, where he has been studying the building facilities and methods ot administration. We quote from the Daily Californian: "Mr. Rowell spent six weeks in the Eastern libraries visiting the Universities of Wisconsin, Illinois, Chicago, Cornell, Columbia, Yale, Harvard and McGill and the more important of the public libraries. In Europe he visited the libraries of Manchester, British Museum, Universities of Oxford and Cambridge in England, the Bibliotegue Nationals, Lur Bonne, Mazarine, St. Genevieve, Goettinger, Marburg, Berlin, Leipsic, Munich and the Royal Library in Germany and Bern and Geneva in Switzerland and Milan, Venice, Florence, Rome, Naples, National and Vatican in Italy.

Y. M. C. A. Elections [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 January 1901
Y. M. C. A. Elections The annual meeting for the election of officers of the Y. M. C. A. was held Wednesday afternoon. The result of the election was as follows: President, W. M. Nesbit, 1902; vicepresident, W. F. Gucken, 1903 ; secretary, E. Hill, 1904; treasurer, G. H. Butler, 1903. Reports of the President, Treasurer, and the Committees on Handbooks, Religious Meetings, Bible Study and Socials were then read. These reports indicate that the association has had a very prosperous year. The interest shown in Bible study has been greater than ever before, and three classes are now being conducted with good attendance at each. The Handbook Committee this year took pains to make a book which would cover every interest of the college, and how well they have succeeded the books themselves show. After some general remarks by Albert Britt, General Secretary, the meeting adjourned.
Good Indoor Work [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 January 1901
Good Indoor Work Thomas F. O'Brien, official handicapper of the A. A. U., has just made a list of "notable track performances of 1900.'' He says that the indoor season has developed a number of remarkable performers and he places two Columbia men, M. B. Dean and S. Barker, near the top of the list. At the Columbia University games in December Dean won the sixty-yard novice event, and the open sixty from the six-yard mark in six seconds. The record for sixty yards is six and two-fifths seconds, and Dean covered the fifty-four yards in six seconds flat. Barker, the other Columbia man from whom O'Brien expects wonders, easily disposed of his opponents in the sixty-yards hurdle race in the same games.
KING'S CROWN Monday Night Meeting to Bid Farewell to Professor Jackson Eminently Successful. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 January 1901
KING'S CROWN Monday Night Meeting to Bid Farewell to Professor Jackson Eminently Successful. A social meeting of King's Crown was held last Monday evening to bid farewell to Professor Jackson, who sails to-morrow for a protracted tour through India. In order that the gathering might be more distinctly collegiate in character and expressive of the undergraduate regret at his departure, the place of meeting was changed from Hollender's to the Tavern. An unusually large number of crowners were present; among them were a number of alumni who were identified with the founding of the society. The gathering was pervaded by a tone of sorrow, which was enhanced rather than dispelled by the speeches of the evening. Professor Jackson has been so closely associated with the society since its origin that the main interest centered around his address, which was the first in order. He expressed his affection for his fellow Crowners and his regret at leaving them even for so short a time. He conclu...

Meeting of 1902 College [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 January 1901
Meeting of 1902 College The college Juniors held a poorly attended class meeting yesterday noon in College Hall. No regular business was transacted; but Captain Irvine and Coach Hanlon spoke to the men on the rowing situation. The urgent need of more members joining the club was put before them; and Hanlon spoke on his confidence in being able to coach the crew successfully. The material, he said, was all that he could ask and he assured the men that he would pick the crew with absolute impartiality. What is needed is the financial support of the students in order that the generous offer of the graduates may be accepted.
