WTHAT effect the recent changes in the * marking system will have is an open question. The instructors may mark higher and the standard will then remain practically the same, or it may be made much harder to obtain the desired diploma. We trust, for Columbia's sake, that the latter view will prove correct, as, with the present standard (or, rather, lack of standard) a man may graduate on the strength of previous knowledge and moderately regular attendance. In any case the desideratum , THE SPECTATOR has so steadfastly striven for is now an accomplished fact —all departments have a uniform per cent.; also, a man now knows in freshman year how much work it requires to enter the Honor Classes. OHILOLEX seems to have really thrown off its former lethargy, and is now striving to regain its prestige. On March 17th eight men were suspended for intervals of from two to four weeks for non-fulfillment of their duties, and while the punishment is not so very heavy, a repetition of the offence ...
Cap and Gown. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 March 1881
Cap and Gown. BY A. H. OINCE the academic costume has, in part, been readopted at Columbia, and as there is a possibility of the gown, as well as the cap, being reestablished, a few words about the use of scholar's cap and gown, at Columbia and elsewhere, may not come amiss. A distinct origin for these habiliments is hard to trace. It is highly probable, however, that, as in the middle ages the clergy were the only scholars, the latter's distinctive dress was simply an adaptation of monkish and later clerical costume, modified by time and the sumptuary laws of the different seats of learning. To begin at the top with the cap. Different periods saw different head-coverings at the Eng- lish universities. A round cap was, at one time, in vogue, which, from the description given of it, must have been something the shape of a "Tam O'Shanter." This was superseded by what has come down to us, with some slight changes, in the modern " mortar-board." The Oxford cap is, sui generis, so far as...

The Rose's Plaint. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 March 1881
The Rose's Plaint. THOUGH they whisper, he and May, I can hear each word they say ; For I rest, — Clinging to the ball-room's queen, 'Mid the lace and silken sheen At her breast. " Give me but that rose of thine, I will build for it a shrine Near my heart." — From my bed she draws me out, For a moment seems in doubt — Then we part. In his waistcoat crushed I lie — 'Mid cigars and purse I die; E'er the day, Am forgotten, and, e'er night, Trophy of a conquest light, Thrown away. F. B. H

THE value of college journals has recently received a signal testimonial. The Trustees of the college have caused full information concerning the School of Political Science to be advertised in all the principal college papers. No better means could have been used to make the ideas of the School understood by desirable candidates.
Important College Legislation. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 March 1881
Important College Legislation. A S stated in our last issue, the Faculty appointed a committee to consider the present marking system, or, rather, lack of system. On Friday, March 18th, the committee reported, and the following changes made in the rules govern- ing the "Maxima and Deter m i nation of Standing." Section i remains unaltered. The changes are in italics : 2. In any department the monthly maximum for each class shall be obtained by multiplying twenty by the number of times per week that the class attends in that department. Any student who, in a monthly report fro?n any depart?nent, is assigned a mark less than fifty per cent., if he be a freshman or a sophomore, or if a junior or a senior less than sixty per ce?it. of the monthly maximum in that department, shall be accounted deficient for the month therein. 3. The maximum for each semi-annual examination shall be equal to the sum of the monthly maxima for the preceding halfyear, and such maximum with the sum of the mon...
Grammar: —A Reminiscence. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 March 1881
Grammar: —A Reminiscence. BY L. w. IT began with the primary grammar, In the little old school-house, down The mill-road, where we learned to stammer Those simple rules of " Brown; " Where the village belle still ogles The paper-mitred fool, And the pedagogue and his goggles Are the sport of his little school. Ah! we boys were so shameless and silly! Then a girl was only a " gal; " You christened me "booby Billy," And I dubbed you " tom-boy Sal;" And, although unable to match you In repartee by half, Still, with sly grimaces at you, I made the scholars laugh. But oh! the revenge came after, When you were an older lass; For, how often you turned the laughter On me at the foot of the class, Where I stumbled and mumbled and wriggled, And set the whole school in a buzz, While you and the pretty girls giggled, To see what a fool I was. And, oh! that sweet lesson in grammar Is still my lesson, I say, Though I've not heard the schoolmaster hammer On his desk for many a day; And now at your...
WILBUR of WILLIAMS:* A Simple Story of College Days. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 March 1881
WILBUR of WILLIAMS:* A Simple Story of College Days. By Cornicula. CHAPTER VI. |AN the appointed day the venerable trustees and certain members of the faculty met, in solemn concourse. (.Moderator ): —" Gentlemen of the Board of Trustees : We are here to day to listen to a most remarkable case. A student, feeling himself aggrieved, has ventured, by advice of one of your number, to call upon you to decide whether the conduct of his professor has been, in all things, worthy of a Christian gentleman and member of our institution of learning. Were the charges confined to a single instance of unfairness, to which the best of instructors are liable, no notice would be taken, and your valuable time would not be encroached upon; nor would we give attention to the complaints of a dullard or insubordinate student against his superiors. But, in justice to Mr. Wilbur, as a student of a reputation for honesty second to none in the college, he has a right to demand our attention, for a short time...
