NOTES ABOUT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 May 1878
NOTES ABOUT COLLEGE. THE President and Professor Burgess sail on the 22d inst., on the Algeria, for Liverpool. Hence there is no chance for a baccalaureate sermon for the Seniors this year. Dr. Drisler will preside at commencement. THE following is the Senior Committee on theii class picture: L. M. Cheesman, Chairman; W. H. Russell, H. R. C. Watson, and J. W. Pryor. THE Juniors having had no exercises in oratory this year, will not be examined in that branch, the scheme of examinations to the contrary notwithstanding. THE class of '79 have at last resolved to have a class supper in the place of the abolished Goodwood celebration. Time and place yet to be decided on. ON account of his recent bereavement Prof. Nairne will not return to take charge of his classes until the autumn. He will, however, read the examinaion papeis in his department as usual. THE Seniors are revelling at present in all the luxuries of a cram week. But their seats in chapel still remain empty, despite the ambi...

Newberry, of'7B, have been chosen to speak at commencement as representatives from the Mining School. J. T. WILLIAMS, '73, of Rafferty &amp; Williams,...
OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 May 1878
OUR EXCHANGES. THE Princeton Review , which, for fifty-three years was quite unknown to the world, has changed hands, and the first three numbers of its fifty-fourth year suddenly prove it to be at present one of the standard reviews of the country, while far surpassing its competitors in cheapness. Published bi-monthly, and having in March a number of 400 pages, its price is but $2.00 per annum, or thirty-five cents a copy. The contributors to the March and April number included Chief Justice Cooley, President Chadbourne, Dr. Hodges, Bishop Coxe, Dr. Hitchcock and President McCosh. Our own Professor Alexander's lecture on Schopenhauer is also reprinted. On the whole, it is a review which, if it keeps up its present standard, no religious or educated man will care to do without, while its fabulous cheapness brings it within the reach of all. It is published at No. 37 Park Row. THE Crimson contains the following very good reason "Why I don't elect Chemistry" : " My teacher was a man ...

THE LIBRARY. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 May 1878
THE LIBRARY. SPRING is as usual the dullest period of the publishing season, and accordingly nothing of extraordinary interest has been published —excepting, ol course, Green's History of the English People , and Newcomb's Popular Astronomy , noticed in our last. Harper's new editions appear to be the most promising announcement, and till they appear the critic of Amercan publications for students has a vacation. FROM Germany we have a most important work for Students of Philosophy ; namely, Dr. Ludwig Noack's Philosophie Geschichtliches Lexicon , a historical and biographical Encyclopaedia of the history of Philosophy. It gives most interesting and valuable sketches of every leading thinker and philosophical system, written in a popular style. The work is published in numbers, five of which bringing the names down from Abelard to Holbach are now ready. The whole will comprise ten or twelve numbers. The space assigned to each title is about three times as large as the corresponding ...

CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 June 1878
CURRENT TOPICS. THE work of another year is done, and the students are beginning to taste the sweets of a long vacation. The examinations through which we all passed were of the average difficulty, yet the marks thus far published, though a very poor basis for calculation, show a very satisfactory result. The Senior class will probably graduate without any "sp. gr.." so much dreaded, and few "conditions" have been awarded to disturb the peace of underclassmen's summer. While we hope that the latter will be as pleasant as possible for all our friends, we would again express the expectation that as many as possible will remain for commencement. The latter is a part of the college exercises, and we are decidedly in favor of some rule which will enforce the students' presence. By-the-bye, we hope that there is no truth in the rumor that the trustees expect the Senior class to pay for any part of the expenses of commencement. If there is, we hope the class will sharply refuse to pay a ce...
GONE WEST. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 June 1878
GONE WEST. FAREWELL, classmates, I am doubling Old Cape Horn, and going West, Where the tutors cease from troubling, To a land forever blest. Where the profs, shall never reach me, Where my digging days are done, Where, if any try to teach me, They shall see my new shot gun. No one talks of Aristotle, Socrates, or Hamilton. There they brace up with the bottle, And their life is full of fun. Once, they say, a man tried teaching In that far off, glorious land ; But they set his bones a bleaching, Bleaching on the glittering sand. Throw my Greek books in the fire, I'll not read them any more. O, how often has my ire Kindled at their sight before ! Use my physic notes for bustle, Each examination's past. Daily I recall the tussle That I had to do the last. But my grinding all is over, And I soon shall happy be, Free from care, a jolly rover, Safely holding my degree. (A. B.) Aeolus, send quickly blowing Breezes flying o'er the sea ; Send them now, for I am going For the year of jubilee....
THE CLASS DINNER OF '78. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 June 1878
THE CLASS DINNER OF '78. ON the evening of May 31st, the Seniors met for the last time before Commencement around the festive table of the "Wellington" on Madison Avenue. Thirty members were present, and the utmost good feeling prevailed. The excellence of the menu and the liberally-flowing wine contributed, moreover, in no small degree to increase the general hilarity. The committee, under the lead of Mr. H. R. C. Watson, had been indefatigable in its preparations, and to them, especially, however, to Mr. Watson, much of the success 01 the whole is due. When the cloth had been removed, Mr. Joseph F. Crowell delivered the class oration. After Mr. Crowed's speech, the historian, Mr. Hurlburt, read the class history, consisting, unfortunately, only of extracts from former Columbiads. The class poem by Mr. Crow was received with great favor, and we regret very much that, notwithstanding its general excellence, some expressions and matters of class interest preclude our giving it entire...
THE BURIAL OF THE ANCIENT. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 June 1878
THE BURIAL OF THE ANCIENT. "We buried him darkly at dead of night." BURIAL OF SIR TOHN MOORE. THE night of the 28th of May was dark and sombre. Thick, black clouds obscured the light of the starry host which twinkled far above, save where here and there a single soft ray struggled through some opening rift, serving but to render the gloom and darkness more apparent. Even the street lamps flickered fitfully under the influence of fierce gusts of wind which groaned forth a dismal refrain through the vast net-work ot telegraph wires overhead. A fit night, in sooth, in which to consign to its last sad resting place the mortal remains of the oft lamented, Phoenix-like, Bojesen. At the base of that huge, torch-bearing hand, typical ot the approaching ceremony, which rears itself aloft in Madison square, had gathered a motley crowd ot mourners, long before the Fifth Avenue Hotel clock indicated the appointed hour. Clad in long black gowns, ingeniously and economically manufactured of paper...
INTER-COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 June 1878
INTER-COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC SPORTS. THESE games, the third meeting of the Association, took place at the Mott Haven track on the 28th of May. That the change of date was a change for the better there was abundant proof, and we think that if for the future the games are not always held in May instead of the hot days of July, it will be a mistake. The fields that started were the largest that have ever been seen at an inter-collegiate contest, while if there was not so much record slashing as last year, yet the performances were by no means second rate. The track was not as good as it might have been, the homestretch being very heavy. The audience completely filled the grand stand, where the ladies with the ribbons of their favorite colleges presented a sight something like the old regatta days at Saratoga. Of the seventeen colleges that form the Association only nine were represented, viz : Columbia, Harvard, Princeton, Univ. of Penn., C. C. N. Y„ Dartmouth, Union, Lehigh and Rutgers, ...
NOTES ABOUT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 June 1878
NOTES ABOUT COLLEGE. EXAMINATIONS are over and the undergraduate prepares for another long period of rest. AT last the Columbiad has appeared. No sp. gr. degrees have been given to any of the class graduating this year. THE Freshmen played a game of baseball against the Brooklyn Polytechnic School, on May 18th. THE Sophomores had a half oral, half written examination in Latin. They seem well pleased with the new method. IN response to the call for the publication of the class poem delivered at the dinner, Mr. Crow says the production is lost and cannot be reproduced. THE class pictures of the Senior class are out. The large ones as a group are very fine, far above the average. Mr. Pach deserves great credit for his success. COLLEGE opens on Monday, Oct. 7th. This gives the student four and a half months to recover his wasted strength and prepare for another year of work. THE Columbia Spectator Association have decided to hold their first annual dinner at the Hotel Wellington, corner...
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 June 1878
CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Spectator SIR : THE Goodwood Cup has already begun to pour strife and discord upon the class of 'BO. We are getting an early attack. This time the opposition, aggressive party consists of the foes, not the friends, of the time-honored custom. The idea that Goodwood is the expression of real popularity exists only in the fancy of some devotee of tradition. It is now said to be merely a question of wire-pulling and superior strategic ability. Hence the party which cannot by dint of persuasion and promise gain a numerical ascendancy is apt not to accept the situation gracefully, not to conform in sentiment and action to what it knows is the will of the majority of the class, but to resort to packed meetings, sudden motions to abolish, etc., and other underhand devises. Suppose, by way of illustration, that there are even coalitions formed, to give a corporate attestation so to speak, to a certain man's popularity, and hence, elegibility to the Cup. ...
THE COLUMBIAD OF '79. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 June 1878
THE COLUMBIAD OF '79. THE COLUMBIAD of '79 is conspicuous for its late and neat appearance. Published in the last week of the term, when few have time to think of such matters, it, nevertheless, makes up for its tardiness by a very beautiful exterior, fully as elegant as any of its recent predecessors. The cover, though the border is unfortunately shaded wrongly, is tasteful, as is all the typographical work of the book. The fact that it is a production from the press of Messrs. Gilliss, the College printers par excellence , would, indeed, of itself account for it, but the Printing Committee are also deserving of great credit. Chiefly to praise for the excellent appearance, careful proof-reading, and general make up of the book is Mr. William B. Parsons, Jr., who, if the financial result of the enterprize proves as great as its merit demands, will rank as one of the most successful college publishers of Columbia. While, in the foregoing, we hope to have done justice to all the good ...
IN "THE MINES." [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 June 1878
IN "THE MINES." MR. WM. DE L. BENEDICT. '74, has been working on some western ores in the assay laboratory. T. S. AUSTIN, '76, has returned from Cuba and is fitting up a laboratory in the city for sugar analyses. O. F. OLMSTED and O. P. Downing, '7B, leave for the West on the completion of their examinations. J. G. MURPHY, '77, is said to be on his way homeward, sick and disgusted with his experience in South America. F. N. HOLBROOK, '76, assistant to Dr. Ricketts in Assaying, sailed on the 23d ult., for Europe on the City of Chester. WILLIAM RUPP, formerly of '75 has accepted a position with Messrs. Whitall, Tatum &amp; Cos., 46 Barclay Street, New York. MR. A. C. HALE, a special student, sails for Europe shortly. There he intends pursuing a course of study in Chemistry. THE class group of '7B was taken by Mr. Laudy, assistant in General Chemistry. The position of the group was on the steps of the west tower. PROF. EGLESTON, and Adj. Prof. Munroe were present at the recent ...
THE COLLEGE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 June 1878
THE COLLEGE WORLD. Amherst:— Dr. Jefferies found twelve students who were affected with color blindness, making an average of one in twenty of the number examined. The college glee club gave a concert May 3 at Hartford, under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A. The club were favorably received by a large and enthusiastic audience, and the concert proved a grand success in every point of view. The observations of the transit of Mercury taken by Prof. Esty were moderately successful. The first contact was lost, but its time was ascertained by accurate measurement. Otherwise the experiment was as successful as the weather would allow. During the middle of the day many students visited the observatory and viewed the transit. Photographs were taken of the sun's disk during the passage of the planet. May 4th, Amherst 1 to Springfield 2. May Bth, Amherst 2 to Clippers o. May nth, Amherst 7 to Holyoke 12. May 14th, Amherst 4 to Pittsfield 12. The above is the Amherst base-ball record up to May ...
OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 June 1878
OUR EXCHANGES. WE clip the following editorial from the Bowdoin Orient, but will refrain from all comment upon it " We have been somewhat disgusted with much of the discussion that has been going on lately in the college press concerning college standing. Nearly all our exchanges have been considering the subject, and the greater part of them try to make it appear that college standing is of no importance whatever. Many of them seem to wish that they may succeed in proving that the poorest scholars in a class are the most likely to gain success in the world. Now we do not believe in any such doctrine. To be sure the student who stands, at the head of his class is not always the ablest, nor is he always the most successful in after life, but we cannot help believing that he is more likely to be both of these than the one who occupies the other extremity. If a student takes a very low position in college he lacks either ability or application, and certainly success in life depends upo...
