The Boating Flags of the Class of '57. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1881
The Boating Flags of the Class of '57. T N the spring of '7B a subscription committee endeavored to raise the money necessary to send our crew to Henley, and among the alumni spoken to about the matter were members of the class of '57. All of these refused to give, stating as their reasons that the class had been insulted by the Boat Club and Faculty in 1875, when they desired to present a set of flags to the winning crew of '74 at Commencement. It seemed to the writer that there must have been some mistake, but the matter was allowed to rest at that time. Since then he has become convinced that it was a mistake, and at his request the following letters have been prepared for publication. The members of the class will readily see that there was no "snubbing," and we trust that they will take suitable action in the matter at their next meeting : LETTER NO. I. —FROM THE SEC. OF CLASS OF '57. Law Office of ELBRIDGE T. GERRY, NO. 261 Broadway, NEW YORK, January 18th, 1881. WILLIAM S. SL...
Suggestions From Other Colleges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1881
Suggestions From Other Colleges. (The following digest has been pi-epared from an article in the Crimson , and will throw some light on the system of discipline now in vogue at Harvard:) «THE enumeration of acts which are offences only because they are prohibited, is reduced to the lowest point which seemed practicable; while breaches of order are left, without provision, to the discretion of the faculty. In all cases specific penalties and regulations suggesting a line up to which failure of duty or breach of discipline may be safely carried, have been struck out, in order to offer no temptation for a kind of calculation of results which is believed to put the student in an essentially wrong attitude of mind towards his regular duties. Dealing with the matter in the light of a considerable experience, the faculty determined to adopt the simple provision, that irregularity of attendance, unless accompanied by good scholarship, calls for inquiry, explanation and suitable action. No s...
The Editor's Task. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1881
The Editor's Task. NOT a sound was heard, save the scratch of the pen — We must come out this week a day later ; For not one contribution had yet been received, From a student, for our SPECTATOR. We hurriedly wrote it, at dead of night, The leaves so quickly turning, By the fitful glare of the coal-gas light, And our brain was exhausted and burning. Few and far-fetched were the puns that we wrote — The best we were able to borrow ; But we steadfastly pegged away at our task, And we bitterly thought of the morrow. But half of our weary tales were told When the clock showed it time to retire ; Besides, the room was getting quite cold, For feebly now burned the fire. Slowly and sadly we wrote our last joke, From the columns of Frank Leslie s News, And went off to bed, indulging the hope That at least it might freshmen amuse.
About College [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1881
About College HPHE Junior Reception has been postponed. Due announcement of the date will be made. PHILOLEX has voted to challenge Barnard to a Joint Debate. PHILOLEX substituted a dinner at Martinelli's for its meeting on Thursday evening, February 3d. W. R. TRAVERS, Jr., 'B2, has the measles, and therefore has been absent from all the examinations. THE new buildings that are to be erected involve an expenditure of over $700,000! Details will be given in our next issue. DURING the second term, the sophomores will study the History of France, under the direction of Mr. E. Munroe Smith. "OUT of the frying-pan into the fire" is very applicable just now to the men that elected Modern Languages as a "roast." The per cent, conditioned is very large. THE sophomore committee, to arrange for the purchase of "Oxford caps," contracted with Dunlap &amp; Cos. for fifty-six "mortar-boards," which the class now sport to the envy of the freshmen. THE Spring Games will be scratch, and open ...

'B2. —" Stoicheometry is over, thank heavens !" This is the general remark made after last Tuesday's examination ; but wait till the result is known. We are afraid that a warmer climate than heaven will be often spoken of with a good deal of vigor. 'B2. —The ladies honor the juniors at their lecture in geology of late, but they are few and far between ; it is astonishing, however, what a fascination the front seats have for the student since the above acquisition to the class. If our fair friends are not benefited by the lecture it is not the fault of any neglect on the part of the students. 'Bl. —...
The College World [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1881
The College World CORNELL: — The crew have as yet done no hard training, as rowing weights were considered injurious. Rowing machines have been ordered. The gymnasium is run by a private association, and the Navy Committee are called upon to pay the initiation fees and term dues of the members of the crews. The demand for cats has been so great that a small building has been set apart for their confinement, previous to their execution. The students have interested themselves, financially, in a gift concert to be given February 22d. The Cornell daily still continues in existence, principally owing to its advertisements. HARVARD : At least three performances of the Greek play will be given, and if the sale of tickets warrant it, a number of extra performances may be expected. Harvard University has increased from 1,278 students to 1,364 in five years. The expenses of instruction in Chinese were $4,062.15 ; the fees received S3O. A Harvard Legislature has been formed, " to discuss ques...
The Library [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1881
The Library HP HE number of Scribners for the current month is one of unusual variety. Among the articles especially taking, to us, was " Norway's Constitutional Struggle," by Bjornstjerne Bjornson, the Norse poet, which will have special interest from the author's recent sojourn in this country, and from the contumely he has received at the hands of King Oscar for his pronounced republican views; it is a clear statement of the attempts of the crown to override the popular will. Mrs. Frances H. Burnett's serial, "A Fair Barbarian," which is considered good enough to be reprinted from Peterson's , is a recent story, and is likely to be one of the author's most popular ones. THE LIST. A Visiting and Shopping Directory for the season of 1881. Compiled by Maurice M. Minton. Pp. 200. Maurice M. Minton, Publisher. Price, $2.00. The List , which met with such a good reception last season, on account of the useful information it contains, and its neat and compact form, has been reissued thi...
Shavings [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1881
Shavings " NEVER leave what you undertake until you can reach your arms around it and clinch your hands on the other side," says a recently published book for young men. "But what if she screams ? " suggests a contemporary. "Why, let her scream; she's to blame for that." First Senior: "Could you follow the thought of this morning's lesson completely ?" Second Senior: " Oh, yes ! I had a libretto." — Yale Courant. ARE we creatures of the hour? Yes, if the hour is mathematics, and we don't understand an atom of the detested stuff, on account of having been at Jones' party last night. IN Mr. Alcott's Essay on Svvedenborg, we are told now, when that prophet became "illuminated," one of the principal incidents of the transition period was a vision of snakes crawling upon the floor. When one of our staff sees snakes crawling about we are apt to think he's — well, after all " illuminated " is as good as any other. — The 'Varsity. PROFESSOR IN PSYCHOLOGY: " Can we conceive of anything as be...
