Protozoa Lecture The fourth Protozoa lecture was held Friday afternoon in 301 Schermerhorn. As usual Dr. Calkins put the divisions of protonoa on the board: I. Class Sarcodinia. 11. Class Mastigophora. 111. Class Sporozoa (spore bearing); Subclass A. Telosporedra (spore-formation ends life of individual) . Order 1. Gregarinida. Order 2. Coccida (cells). Order 3. Hsemosporidia (blood). Subclass B. Neosporida (sporeformation continuous). Order 4. Mixosporida. Order 5. Sarcosporida. Order 6. Mignosporida. As usual the class which is fully subdivided is that under discussion. The class Sporozoa are parasites. They are thought to be a development of the sarcodinia or Mastegophora. They differ from the former classes in the fact that they lack motive power and that they multiply by spore-formation. This great class is subdivided by the method of spore-formation, in the first subdivision, the process ends the life of the individual; in the second, sporeformation is continuous. The germs of...

College Fields [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 March 1901
College Fields A little over twelve years ago an agitation was begun among the students for an athletic field which should meet the growing demands of Cornell's varied athletic interests. In 1889 William H. Sage, a graduate of Yale and now a trustee of the University, procured and gave to the athletic association the plot of land which now bears the name of Percy field. It originally consisted of about ten acres, but has twice been added to by purchase since the original gift was made. Mr. J. J. Haggerman kindly gave the necessary funds to lay out and equip the field, and it was accordingly named Percy Field, in honor of one of Mr. Haggerman's sons. From the funds given by Mr. Haggerman the field was put in good condition for the various branches of athletics. The field had been used but a few years when it was seen that a club house was badly needed for the use of the athletes of Cornell and visiting colleges. The class of '93, after its graduation from college, took the initiative...

GAME WITH PRINCETON Basket-ball Team Will Play Second Game of Series Next Friday Evening—Dance to Follow Contest [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 8 March 1901
GAME WITH PRINCETON Basket-ball Team Will Play Second Game of Series Next Friday Evening— Dance to Follow Contest Columbia and Princeton will meet at basket-ball in the Columbia Gymnasium 011 the evening of Friday, March 15th. A dance of twenty-four numbers will follow the game. Columbia's prospects for the game are very encouraging. The team is playing in tine 'style now, and will have the advantage of playing on their own court and shooting at baskets with which they are perfectly familiar. On the full-sized court in the Gymnasium, Columbia players will have a far better chance to show their skill and dodging ability than on the cramped space at Princeton. Princeton, however, has a big advantage in weight, and this is likely to cut down the advantage of Columbia's skill. The game, therefore, should be close and exciting. Princeton realizes that Columbia is a worthy opponent, for in a recent number of the Princetonian it was said that Columbia had one of the strongest of the colleg...
