Forty-two Cross Country Candidates Great interest is being shown in cross country running. Yesterday's ideal weather served as an attraction to bring out 42 candidates, a larger number than ever before. Daily runs are held over the usual course. Captain Smith and Trainer Hjertberg are both delighted with the interest and pleasure which the men take in the work, and they predict a successful team for Columbia this year. At present Crocker, 03, and Duden, 01, two very good men, have not come out, but Trainer Hjertberg expects them to come out any day, for they are badly needed. The class of 1902 has not men enough to make a class team. More men should come out from that class. The principal candidates are as follows : L. N. Brussel, 'O3. E. D. Oppenbeimer, 04. C.

Alumni Notes: A Columbia Alumnus in the Siege of Peking [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 19 October 1900
Alumni Notes: A Columbia Alumnus in the Siege of Peking Rev. F. D. Gamewell, P.G., '96, has become famous through the part he took in the defense of the British Legation in Peking. The following is from a London despatch to the New York Times: Dr. Morrison in the Times concludes his dramatic account of the siege of Peking. Pie expresses the deep obligations of all those confined in the British Legation to the splendid services of the Rev. Frederick D. Gamewell, head of the Methodist Mission Board, to whom was due the designing and construction of all our defenses, and who carried out in most admirable manner Sir Claude Mac Donald's" ideas and suggestions. Professor Ogden N. Rood has written a letter to President Low in this connection, from which we quote the following: ''You will be surprised to learn that the man who designed and constructed the defenses of the British Legation during its recent siege in Peking, was a graduate student at Columbia (Physics Department) during the ye...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 19 October 1900
The game on Wednesday with Stevens, while it cannot be taken as indicative of the prowess of the team, showed that we have a much stronger set of substitutes than was the case last year. The men played with a certain amount of snap and dash which was highly encouraging after the demoralized condition of a few days ago. A most discouraging fault, however, was the lack of team work shown. The backs seemed unable to follow their interference and in the case of the Varsity backs who were put in late in the second half this fault was particularly noticeable. Time and again the runner would lose his interference before be met the opposing rush line and to down him was then an easy task. Such a result is only to be expected when the regular Varsity players come out but half the days in the week to practise. To perfect team work the constant attendance of the entire team is an indispensable requisite. Whatever may be the cause of this failure to attend practise it must soon be remedied if w...
