Two Years from Now. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 May 1881
Two Years from Now. i. THIE little imp! The charming little elf, Just turned fifteen, That always meets me when I go to see Her great big brother, That lets me steal a kiss, —then archly pouts And says, " it's mean " Because I did, —and runs to make me think She'll tell her mother! 11. But she won't tell! 'Tis but her way to tease, — The roguish miss! Two years from now, —when she'll be older grown, No more a child, — Then will my welcome be her blush, her smile, Her shrinking kiss, Or will my love be cooled by her request To " draw it mild ?" " CRUCIBLE."
An Incident of University Life at Berlin. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 May 1881
An Incident of University Life at Berlin. T \ THEN I was at Berlin I had a good opportunity of observing the manners and customs of the German students, some of which appear very odd to an outsider. I was particularly struck with their practice, or rather pastime (for it is looked upon in nearly the same light as we regard boxing), of duelling. It is almost their only amusement besides beer drinking bouts; and it is regarded as a sign of the greatest cowardice to refuse to stand up and have your face slashed and cut by any one who may take a fancy to challenge you. Of course there are some who never will fight, either on account of their innate good sense or from their very natural objection to being mutilated by a man against whom they have no grudge. But now and then the quarrelsome Dutchmen "catch a Tartar" and get as good as they give. A very good instance of this happened while I was a student at the University. There were several Americans there who looked upon duelling in the...

Correspondence [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 May 1881
Correspondence To the Editors of the COLUMBIA SPECTATOR: you call the attention of the college authorities to one or two matters, which, though apparently trivial, are the cause of a good deal of discomfort to the students? The Anonymous Building contains a commodious wash room, furnished with numerous basins and faucets, but for some occult reason it has never been provided with soap or towels. At a very small outlay, soap, two or three roller towels and a whisk broom could be bought, and with perhaps the addition of a small mirror the comfort and convenience of the place would be increased ten-fold. In the second place, why do they insist upon posting the reports, upon the bulletin near the President's room, in such a promiscuous manner ? Why not assign a board to each class, or to each study, and thus save the students much time and patience ? HELLAS.
English University Training. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 May 1881
English University Training. \ \ T E print below an article recently published * in the London Pall Mall Gazette , and of interest to our crew and boating men. " A University eight trains for five weeks. A waterman would take three months for a match, but then the University men have mostly been in good exercise for some weeks before actual training commences. They rise at seven or earlier, take a gentle half hour's walk, running, perhaps, a couple of ' sprint' bursts. They then come home for bath and dressing. They breakfast about 8 A.M. on decently-cooked chops and steaks, sometimes a little fish, and not more than one egg, if any. Two cups of tea are the outside allowance to drink. Stale bread is used, or dry toast ; and theywind up with water-cress. For lunch a small quantity of cold meat, stale bread, and half a pint of old ale. For dinner, roast beef and mutton (not boiled), and perhaps fish or poultry on alternate days, as an extra course : now and then jelly and a plain pudd...

About College [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 May 1881
About College '"T &gt; HE date of the fall regatta of the boat club has been set for October twenty-second. THE representative number of the Glee Club has been changed from twelve to sixteen. The club sang at the alumni dinner last Friday evening. They expect to be at New London this summer, and from there to take a short trip through the country. J. T. Fisher, 'B3, has been elected warbler, a position which he has held during the past year in the Eighty-three Glee Club. THE collectors of the Triumph subscriptions in Eighty-three are having a hard time, in some instances, to collect the subscriptions promised them last January. In the third section, especially, trouble has been experienced. Men who subscribed a certain amount last winter, now find that they will perhaps not be able to attend the Triumph, and therefore repudiate their subscriptions. PROFESSOR SPRAGUE SMITH has proposed a scheme for the systematic organization of the study of modern languages, which scheme has...
School of Mines Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 May 1881
School of Mines Notes. QH-H-H ! Don't give it away, but the Miner is out. MEMBERS of 'B4 will please " pony up" to the treasurer, for the support of the crew. THE papers harp on plumbers because they make money ; they never heard of the man who keeps our supply room, otherwise they'd change their subject. PROF. NEWCOMB'S lectures on the causes of bright plumage among birds, were very interesting. The Professor seems to be greatly interested in the subject. TRIGONOMETRY LESSON. — Prof., to stupid student : " But, sir, if 71 is equal to 180° what is one-half TT worth?" Stupid student: "Ten cents." THE blacking brush near Wall's lunch counter was missing for some time ; then some bright youth hit upon the idea of buying some of Wall's pot-pie. The brush is now again in its accustomed place. W. T. GRISWOLD, '8 I, leaves for Culiacan, Mexico, on the 20th instant ; he will be engaged as civil engineer on theSinola and Durango railroad. ONE would hardly believe that the disgraceful proceed...

The Alumni Association. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 May 1881
The Alumni Association. 1\ j\ OST of tlie students know, in a general way, that there is an Alumni Association of the college graduates, but few have any idea of the exact nature of the organization, and how much pleasure can be derived from becoming a member of it, when the coveted "sheepskin" has been gained. The Association held a social gathering at Delmonico's, on the evening of Friday, the 13th, which was attended by about seventy of the members.

'TWAS off the blue Canary Isles, One squally summer day ; From side to side the rolling ship Went pitching on its way. I clung with both hands to the rail And knew, right then and thar, I was too sick, I felt too pale, To smoke my last cigar. — Ex. LAW PROFESSOR : " What constitutes burglary ?" Student: "There must be a breaking." Prof. : " Then, if a man enters your door and takes five dollars from your vest pocket in the hall, would that be burglary ?" Student : " Yes, sir, because that would break me." — Ex. THE following, in the Free Press, is not half bad: " If in a state of conflagration You find the college burning down, The Prex a-skipping in consternation, To take a horse-car out of town, That is the time for disappearing.
