The Triumph. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
The Triumph. A T about half-past nine on the evening of May 27th, a number of ghost-like looking figures might have been seen prowling toward the Worth Monument, and a little while after a large crowd watched the two hundred or more who had arrived form in ranks. There was the usual struggle getting into the gowns, a delay while the fact was being ascertained that the fire-works had not arrived, and finally at about 10.30 the procession moved past the Hotel Brunswick in the following order: Po--lic e, Grafulla's Band, Chairman of Committee, Effigy of Legendre, Committee, Haruspex and Carnifex,Eightythree, Eightyone, Eighty-two, Eighty-four, School of Mines and Schools of Law and Medicine. Ago o and many houses were illuminated on the line of march, and prolonged cheers were given at the University Club, Rutgers Female College, the residence of Mr. W. B. Parsons, the Windsor Hotel, and other points of interest. A large crowd accompanied the procession on the sidewalk, and running on ...
A Query. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
A Query. OH happy rose, who didst recline Close nestled at my lady's breast, Pray, lovely flower, can you divine If she's in earnest, or in jest? One little kiss I stole last night, So red and saucy were her lips; And tho' she slapped, her stroke w r as light, Bestowed by dainty finger-tips. Two laughing eyes peeped out above Her fan, spread wide, to blush behind, And added madness to my love, By seeming just a trifle kind. Then tell me, flower, in gentle strains, Am I but one of many beaux She leads about with flowery chains, And then rewards them—with a rose? T. J. B.
The Athletic Record of the Past Two Weeks. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
The Athletic Record of the Past Two Weeks. ' I HE following is a report of the games played by the Cricket Eleven, the doings of the Lacrosse team, and a detailed account of the Inter-collegiate games. In view of the fact that the best part of last week was taken up by the final examinations, our athletes have been remarkably busy, and although we cannot chronicle any decisive victories, the record shows that they have done their utmost to promote the success of the college. Thursday, May 26th. A " scratch " Columbia team played a cricket match with the Second eleven of the Staten Island Club, on the grounds of the latter. The game resulted in a complete victory for the Staten Islanders. The Columbia Lacrosse team sustained its second defeat on May 26, at the Polo grounds, from the hands of the N. Y. U. Lacrosse team. The score was 4 to o. The goals were made in 26 minutes, 5 minutes, 50 minutes, and 3 minutes respectively. The Cricket team again went into the field, on Friday, the ...
To a Fan from Japan. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
To a Fan from Japan. WHEN far across the seas, Where bloom the fragrant teas, Full many a fickle breeze Had swiftly brought thee Unto this foreign shore, Thy voyage being o'er, E'en to return no more, My lady bought thee. Then from a thing of earth, A thing of sordid birth, A thing of matchless worth, Her light touch made thee. For lovers asked to hold, And of thy beauties told, Though in the days of old, No thought they paid thee. Thy mistress —married now, Forsooth —has to allow The wrinkles on the brow, Once so unclouded. For you no lovers sigh, As, in a garret high, Neglected now you lie, All dust-enshrouded. SITO.

Philolexian. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
Philolexian. last regular meeting of the Society was held at its rooms, 64 Madison avenue, on the evening of Thursday, the 26th inst. The President, J. Duane Livingston, 'BO, presided.

Mills, 'Bl ; Vice-President, Alexander Harvey, 'B2; Secretary, A. D. Henry, 'B4; Treasurer, H. de B. Parsons, 'B2; and Librarian, H. L. Satterlee, 'B3. Mr. J. Purdon,'B3, was then initiated.

About College [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
About College p7 IGHTY-ONE was photographed in a group, one day last week. TWENTY or thirty men in Eighty-three will probably take the science course next term. JUST now there are a good many verdant looking youths "about college," who are inquiring where the President's room is. TEN Sophomores have been captured by the cremated Legendre. In other words, they failed to pass. ON the evening of Tuesday, the 24th ult., several members of Eighty-four had a subscription supper at Delmonico's. EIGHTY-FIVE is at last here, and looks like most other freshmen classes undergoing entrance examinations —tired, headachy and resigned. THE Senior's pic-nic, or strawberry festival, or whatever it is, is to come off on the sixth of this month, near Sand's Point, on the Sound. The steamboat will leave the foot of East Twenty-third street, at 3 o'clock, p. M. IST FRESH: "Say, Bob; I thought they wanted a full attendance at that meeting last night ? " id Fresh : " So they did." Ist Fresh : " Well, I tr...
Base-Ball [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
Base-Ball NEW HAVEN, May 28th, Yale, 8 ; Harvard, 5. Princeton, May 28th, Brown, 5 : Princeton, 3. New Haven, May 30th, Yale, 5 ; Brown, 2. It will be seen from the above that Yale has the best show for the championship. THERE is every probability that the races which our crews expect to row this summer will be well attended by the students. The novelty of the Harvard-Columbia 'Varsity Race will doubtless attract a great many who will only be able to be present at one of the three races, although a greater number than usual expect to go on to Philadelphia. The probabilities are that the Schuylkill race will be a hard fought one, though not as close as last year's. The action of the directors of the boat club, in not entering a crew in the Passaic Regatta, is to be commended, as, although it lends additional excitement to the race, it is not pleasant to row against a crew which will try to foul, if it cannot pass you, and the honor of winning is a doubtful one. We fail to see why the...
The Miner. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
The Miner. ' J HE " Memorial Window " cannot fail to excite interest, and though the lecture which follows it is as incomprehensible to most college men as one embodying "incipient war" and " stones for bread" would be to a Miner, still those for whom it is intended will declare it " immense."
School of Mines Notes. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
School of Mines Notes. fANLY fourteen of the Sophomores got through in Calculus. THERE are still about one hundred "Miners" left. They can be had on application to any of the board, or at the SPECTATOR office, on application to the Managing Editor. NEFTEL, '79. "Nefty's" familiar face is now seen about the Mines again, and greets us as naturally as of yore. THE Class of Eighty-two started with ninetytwo men in their freshman year. Now they number but twenty-three out of the original class. A pretty good thinning out. AT the last regular meeting of the Chemical Society, held in Prof. Newberry's room, on Thursday the 26th inst., the following officers were elected for the next term: President, C. A. Wittmack, 'B2 ; First Vice-President, W. H. Cooper, 'B2; Second Vice-President, F. Sands, 'B2; Secretary, J. B. Lynch, 'B2; Treasurer, C. Van V. Powers, 'B2. Messrs. Sands, Wittmack and Cooper were also elected to represent the Editorial Board of the Chemical Society on the Quarterly. On p...
The Swells. [WITH APOLOGIES TO THE SHADES OF E. A. P.] [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
The Swells. [WITH APOLOGIES TO THE SHADES OF E. A. P.] SEE the T-cart with its swells— Howling swells ! What a pile of unmet bills their nobbiness foretells. Talk they twaddle, twaddle, twaddle, With a supercilious air ; While now and then their empty noddle Contemplates the faultless model Of some passing spanking pair ; Killing time, time, time, While they spend dime after dime— For the brandy and the soda that effervescently wells For the swells, swells, swells, swells,
The College World [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
The College World BOWDOIN: — We clip the following items from the Orient , of the 25th ult.: By the munificence of Mr. E. R. Jewett, the Boating Association is to receive a large ensign for the boat-house, bearing an anchor and the word Bowdoin in blue and gold. In the annual convention of the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity, held at Brown University, W. I. Cole, 'Si, and W. C. Merryman, 'B2, represented the Bowdoin Chapter. The boat crews show, on the whole, the results of last winter's work in the gymnasium, and wtth good training are in excellent condition despite the unfavorable circumstances which have opposed them. The Ivy invitations have arrived and are for sale at No. 6W. H. 'Bi's invitations were gold finished cards. 'B2's are double sheets with the class monogram at the top in crimson and gold. The Juniors have held a class meeting for election of Ivy Honors. The results will appear June 3d. By the same class, those contesting at the prize declamations were voted for last Wedn...
Shavings [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 June 1881
Shavings A FRESHMAN says he always considered George Eliot's best works, " Daniel Deronda" and " Helen's Babies." — Round Table. IST SOPHOMORE. —" How much time do you put on to your French?" 2 d Sophomore (in a very loud voice). —"Two hours a day." (In a very low voice.) —" There comes the Professor." — Amherst Student. PROF. S.: "What mammals are found in Australia and nowhere else? " Mr. T. (whose hat is uncomfortably tight this A. M.): "Snakes, sir." — Princetonian. A STRONG demand in favor of co-education has thrown open the doors of many of our universities and colleges to women, and the college press, thinking it a poor rule which will not work both ways, is insisting that Yassar admit men. Hear! Hear! — Chronicle. SCENE, Pike's stable. —Funny Freshman (to hostler, who is rubbing down his horse): —" Pat, I'm afraid you're currying favor with that horse."
