HARVARD WINS A Disappointing Game Lost by the Score of 24 – 0 — Frequent Fumbling and Rough Work Mars the Play [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 October 1900
HARVARD WINS A Disappointing Game Lost by the Score of 24 - 0 — Frequent Fumbling and Rough Work Mars the Play The entrance to the Big Four seems to be closed to Columbia for another year at least. On Saturday Harvard rolled up a total of 24 points, which just doubles the score made by her against either Williams or Bowdoin. This is due in part to the fact that Harvard had anticipated finding in Columbia a worthy opponent and had marshaled her strongest combination in the field. Columbia's work was disappointing in every respect. Costly fumbles were frequent and lack of team play was glaringly conspicuous. Weekes as a punter was a decided failure. He fumbled several times in emergencies, while when he did kick he rarely made more than 20 yards. He was, however, seriously handicapped by the inaccuracy of Williams' passing. Harvard's line was very firm, and only in the last few minutes of play was Columbia able to gain materially. On the other hand, Ellis, Kendall and Sawin tore throu...

New Y. M. C. A. Building—Work to be Begun Soon [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 October 1900
New Y. M. C. A. Building—Work to be Begun Soon The announcement that a students' hall has been given the University has excited much interest, and we are assured that a permanent building will be erected solely for student interests. The donor, in his letter to the trustees, said: "I desire to erect, free from expense to Columbia University, a building to be placed in charge of the Young Men's Christian Association of the city of New York, subject to the reserved right of control of the trustees of the University, to be used for the development of the spiritual, philanthropic and religious life of the university." He gives the control of the building to the Y. M. C. A., not to limit the use of it to that organization, but because it seems to be the most fitting agent for such a purpose. The situation of the building may be seen in any plans of the grounds, opposite the proposed chapel and at the southeast corner of the Engineering Building. It will be built in classic style, and in ...

Intercollegiate Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 October 1900
Intercollegiate Notes YALE. After very careful consideration of the situation, it has been decided by the University not to establish a bank on the campus. The scheme was suggested and much discussed the past year. It was thought the bank would prove a very considerable convenience to students. It was found, however, that there were certain technical legal difficulties in the way of the University in any such plan, and, as from the first it was contemplated to operate the bank in connection with the treasurer's office, the idea was considered not feasible. Frank O'Donnell Camp Robertson, 1901, has been elected permanent captain.of the baseball team in place of F. L. Ouinby, 1902, S., resigned. Mr. Robertson had previously been appointed temporary captain. His home is at Parish, N. Y., and he prepared for college at Phillips Exeter Academy, where he played first base on the school team.

WORK ON THE GRIDIRON Scrub Proves a harder Proposition—Many Promising Additions to the Squad—Students Gave the Team a Send-Off to Cambridge [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 October 1900
WORK ON THE GRIDIRON Scrub Proves a harder Proposition— Many Promising Additions to the Squad—Students Gave the Team a Send-Off to Cambridge Last Thursday, for the first time this season, the scrub succeeded in scoring. The Varsity line seemed paralyzed for a time, and was unable to stop the swift rushes of Lilliard and '1 ownsend, the two scrub halfbacks. By using the new trick formations, the scrub carried the ball up to within five yards of the goal line, where it was lost on a fuinble. Weekes fell back to punt out of danger, but Murphy's pass was wild, and he was downed behind the line, giving the scrub a safety touchdown, or two points. On the next line-up in the center of the field it looked as if the scrub would succeed in scoring again, but on the 20-yard mark the Varsity took a brace and held for downs. Thereafter the Varsity's play improved, and three touchdowns and a sroal from the field followed in short order. The play throughout was of a very aggressive style. The scru...
