A. B. in Three Years [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1901
A. B. in Three Years The Yale Corporation, at its meeting 011 Jan. 30, took action that will give a student opportunity to get his bachelor's degree in three years. Official announcement is also made of several important changes in the course of study in Yale University, to go into effect with the next academical year. The required attendance at specific courses by all students in former times characterized the curriculum and has been slowly yielding to the principle of "elective" courses, as at Columbia and Harvard. A further step in this direction has now been taken by limiting the required courses to the Freshmen year, which remains unchanged. During the following three years the students will be free to choose from a wide range of subjects. This will do away with the traditional requirements of a course in mental and moral science, but will leave the required courses during Freshman year in Greek, Latin, English, mathematics and in either German or French. The range of choice in...
Varsity Crew [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1901
Varsity Crew The candidates for the Varsity and freshman crews are rowing regularly every afternoon on the machines in the crew room of the gymnasium. There are at present fifty-two men trying for the Varsity eight and- twenty-seven freshmen. At this time last year there were not so many men trying for the Varsity as there are at present, but for the 1903 freshman crew nearly sixtyfive men turned out. However, Mr. Hanlan expects quite a number still to come out, men who have been working very hard for the mid-year exams, and who have not had the extra time to give to the crew. The senior class is represented by twelve candidates, the junior class by fifteen, while the sophomore class furnishes twenty-five men. The different schools are represented as follows: College, twentyseven ; Science, seventeen; Law, six; P. G., one; P. and S., one. Following is a list of the candidates for the Varsity and freshmen crews. A great many of them have handed in their names, but will not be out unt...

Phenix Library Opened The Phenix Library has been thrown open to the students during the regular hours of the day, and access can now be had to the shelves. This library is one of the most interesting and attractive portions of the Columbia collection, and is situated in the stone galleries below the dome, on each side of the library. The accommodation will undoubtedly be welcomed with pleasure by the students. A public session of the Academy of Political Science was held Tuesday. Jan. 29, at 8:30 in Room 401 Library. Prof. Frank J. Goodnow gave a very interesting address on "The Work of the Charter Revision Commission."
Indoor Games [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1901
Indoor Games The first of a series of indoor games was held in the gymnasium last VVednesday afternoon. In five out of the six events which made up the programme the Columbia indoor records were broken, new figures being made in the 440 yard run, 40 yard dash, mile run, shot put and running high jump. The other event was the pole vault. The games brought out a large number of competitors and gave evidence of much good material for the outdoor season. The first event, the 40 yard dash on a straightaway track, proved one of the best on the programme. It was won in fine style by W. P. S. Earle, 1904. Earle is a member of the relay team and is developing considerable ability, both as a sprinter and as a long distance man. The time was five seconds, one-half second better than the previous record established last year by F. J. V. Schimper, 1901 S. In the quarter mile dash, J. A. McAnerney, 1901 S., lowered the former record of C. G. Atkins, 1902, from fifty-six and one-fifth seconds to f...
Freshmen Basket-ball [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1901

At the recent meeting, the college freshmen voted to give the team $lO in order to enable it to go to New Haven. With this and what there is left in the treasury, J. Meyers, the manager of the team, will pay half the expenses incurred by playing the Yale freshmen at New Haven, and the Yale team will pay the other half.
Princeton Wins [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1901
Princeton Wins The Princeton hockey team won the match with Columbia rather decisively by the score of 8 goals to 1. The visiting team developed very fair team work and were strong on the defense, but the result was due more to the poor showing of the home team than to any brilliant playing on the part of Princeton. On the Columbia team there was a lack of concerted attack, while the defense, with the exception of Benedict, who played a good game, was slow and lacking in a knowledge of the game. Eyer and De Witt played the best game on the attack, but both showed lack of training and practice. Duden, at cover point, was erratic, and Von Bernuth clearly showed his inexperience. The regular hockey team, which was debarred by the faculty 011 account of the Pittsburg trip, were obliged to look on from the side. There were four freshmen on the team, and of these Akin did the best work, scoring the only goal for Columbia. The game as a whole was disappointing. Play started with a rush. Pr...

Scholastic News [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1901
Scholastic News Collegiate School. Several members of the Senior Class are busily rehearsing their parts in a play, written by two members of the class, which will be acted some time in April. The play is held every year at about that time, and is usually a great success. A debate will soon be held in the Chapel, and it is hoped that it will prove as closely contested and interesting as that of last year. Dwight School. In the second interscholastic championship game the Dwight Basket-ball fearn was defeated by the Cutler Team at Dr. Savage's gymnasium, by a score of 24 to 11. The Dwight Hockey Team won the first championship game by defeating Drisler 4 to 3. Drisler School.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 11 February 1901
A matter was called to our attention recently which related to increasing the facilities for earning money offered to the students of the university. The particular occasion which gave rise to the remark was the recent snow fall, and it was suggested that here lay an opportunity for the man who was working his way through college to pick up a little extra money, with the assistance of the University authorities. We laid the matter before Superintendent Goetze and his response was cordial and immediate. It appears that when there is snow to be cleared away or any similar work in the nature of emergency labor to be done the Superintendent has been ordinarily compelled to hire what aie popularly known as "guineas," paying them at the rate of cents an hour. When the subject of offering to let the students take up this work was broached to Mr. Goetze, he replied that he would be more than willing to meet any students half way who come to him for employment of that nature. Moreover, if th...
