Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 October 1881
IT will be seen by reference to an article in our columns that several appointments have been made in the Faculty of the College. Professor H. H. Boyesen, the well-known novelist and writer of fiction, whose name has long been familiar through the pages of our magazines, has been called from Cornell to fill the position of instructor in the Department of Modern Languages. Mr. Rees, who returns as an instructor to his Alma Mater , from which he graduated in '72, will have the honor of the supervision of the new observatory. We are glad to note his appointment, as there are now several thousands of our graduates, and it is well to have college offices filled from among their number. A \ T HEN a man first enters college there are a great many things which he ought to do. That is, there are a great many things which people try to persuade him it is absolutely necessary for his welfare to do, right away. There are numerous organizations which he ought to join. There are various things wh...
Changes in the Faculty. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 October 1881
Changes in the Faculty. \ \ 7"E chronicled, last spring, the resignation of * * Professor Nairne, and his election as Pro- fessor Emeritus of English Literature, with a retiring pension. His successor has not yet been chosen, and for the present, at least, his work will devolve upon Prof. Alexander and Dr. Quackenbos. We also recorded the appointment of Professor W. R. Ware of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, to the position of Professor of Architecture in the School of Mines. This course will be opened on October third. The new observatory which will occupy the upper story of the Library Building, when completed, will be presided over by Professor John Krom Rees, A.M., '72, E.M., 1875, A s s't in Ma th., School of Mines, 1873-4. Professor Rees has been called from the chair of Mathematics in Washington University, St. Louis. While there, he established a system of furnishing standard time to the railroads running from that city. He expects to establish a New York standard...
"Puck"-ery Poems. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 October 1881
"Puck"-ery Poems. r I A HE editor wiped his perspiring brow, and, dropping into his easy chair, called out to his assistant : "Is life and the SPECTATOR to be made up of nothing but prose ? Bring hither the accumulated stack of poetry, that I may rest my weary mind and enliven the pages of the next issue." The well-trained assistant did as he was told, and deposited on the baize-covered desk the summer's contribution of poesy, and, with careful forethought, emptied the waste-basket and placed it conveniently near his chief and retired. "Ha ! What is this ?" exclaimed the editor, as he unfolded the first sheet of note-paper. " There was a young man who said : ' Well, It is said there's no longer a Hell ; But I wish that old Vennor 'D skip off to Gehenna, And finish out there his hot spell.' " "How horrible, and yet how seasonable," murmured he, as he hastily put it from his sight and turned to the next effort. " This should of rights be something on 'moonlight and fair women,' " as h...
A Trip through Thuringia. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 October 1881
A Trip through Thuringia. BY OUR FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT. HERE is one curious characteristic of the German student, the desire of going out into Nature, of admiring the scenery of his native land, and of gathering sweet recollections for later years. It is this admiration of Nature which drives him from the university during the long Pentecost and summer vaca- tions, makes hi m forsake the common medium of travel by rail, and causes him to delight in rambling tours on foot for many days in succession. On such a trip (the first that I had undertaken) I set out in the earlier part of June with about thirty com panions. Thuringia, one of the most wooded provinces of Germany, was our place of destination. After passing by rail through some pretty valleys, seeing now and then the ruin of some old castle frowning down upon us, or some tidy villages glowing in the morning sun, we reached the famous old university-town, Jena. The life of the " colorwearing" student is about the same here as a...

Steps in the Right Direction. From Scribner's Monthly (The Century) for October, 1881. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 3 October 1881
Steps in the Right Direction. From Scribner's Monthly (The Century) for October , 1881. I" N an article published a year ago, or more, upon the importance of political education, we said : " There is no good reason why Yale and Harvard, or any other college, for that matter, should not have a department of politics, which should give a solid three years' course of study. There is no reason why a man should not go before a high examining board at Washington, from such a school as this, and win his certificate of fitness for public office. There are a thousand good reasons why such a man should receive the suffrages of the people for any office which they wish to fill." Well, that which we presented as a desideratum is already furnished by two important institutions, viz., by Columbia College and by the University of Michigan. The former, more than a year ago, furnished such a course of study, in a " School of Political Science," and the latter now announces the establishment of such ...

Last Season's Boating and Comments thereon.

The following were rowed in six-oared shells on courses three miles long. Quinsigamond Lake, near Worcester, Mass., supplied the water in 1867, 1869 and 1870 ; and turnaboat races on the Connecticut River, near Springfield, occurred in 1871, 1872 and 1873, and Saratoga Lake in 1874, 1875 and 1876. 1867, July 19. —Freshmen of '7O : Yale defeated Harvard 28s.
