THE COLLEGE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1878

THE COLLEGE WORLD. Colby:— Some of the Seniors are studying Spanish. The latest excuse for absences is sore eyes. The •disease is said to be quite prevalent among a certain few. A Senior much troubled with the " ch " hard in "Das Deutch," says he cannot pronounce that German nasal. Prof. Lyford has lately invented a very ingenious and useful piece of apparatus for illustrating eclipses to his Astronomy class. A large number of the Juniors are experimenting in Chemistry. With a large laboratory, plenty of apparatus, and the efficient aid of Prof. Elder, this study is becoming one of the most attractive and profitable in the curriculum. The Sophomore-Freshman ball game, now an established College custom, was played Wednesday, Oct. 2d. Owing to the want of an efficient pitcher by 'B2, the game was uninteresting, and was called at the end of the sth inning, when the score stood 28 to 2 in favor of the Sophs. Harvard The new officers of the Harvard BaseBall Club are : President, Harold C...

OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1878

OUR EXCHANGES. THE University Quarterly is a handsome journal, and the most interesting college paper that has come to us for some time. It speaks of the old University Quarterly, which was published by a number of the colleges in concert before the war, and urges that efforts be made for its re-establishment. We are sorry to say we have never seen a number of this paper, but think such a periodical would meet with success, and should like to hear the opinions of other college papers on the subject. There is an excellent address before the Alumni Association, on " College Life : Its Potency and Promise " in the Quarterly , and a racy article on "Ouahogs," besides a good paraphrase of " Persicos odi THE Nassau Lit. has a very good essay on " William, Earl Chatham," which gives the points in his character, and the results that followed his measures, in good, clear style. The Mac Lean prize oration on " Hebrew Poetry " is also very good, and a sad little story, called " Mariamne," writ...

THE LIBRARY. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1878

THE LIBRARY. THE AMERICAN DECISIONS. Containing all the cases of general value and authority decided in the Courts of the several States from the earliest issue of the State Reports to the year 1869. Compiled and annotated by John Proffatt, LL.B. San Francisco. A. L. Bancroft & Cos. Vols. 3, 4. 807,776 pp. Sheep. In Vol. 1., p. 202, of THE SPECTATOR, we first called the attention of our Law readers to this enterprise—the most important to them which has been undertaken in this country for the last generation. The " American Decisions" are really as much more valuable than the whole mass of reports from which they are taken as a well shaped gold bar is more desirable than an amount of ore containing the same quantity of metal. The selecting, refining, melting and shaping process has all to be gone t.trough with by the possessor of the latter, while in the bar we have not only the valuable metal, but also the result of all the processes mentioned. And, moreover, in the ser...

SHAVINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 November 1878

SHAVINGS. WHAT shall it profit a Sophomore if he puts a Freshman to bed, yet loses all chances of finishing his college course?" asks the Amherst Student. ANY man who sings "My Grandfather's Clock " in New York now is warned, and if he pursues his course is warranted to die a painful and sudden death. Two Japanese girls are at Vassar. It is a beautiful and affecting sight to see the American girls teaching them to slide down the banisters.— Exchange. LITTLE drops of whiskey, Ponies small of beer, Tangle up ye senior's legs, And make his head feel queer. AN Indiana girl says she finds nothing so good, for the complexion, as rubbing her face on a young man's vest. The young man must be inside it, though. THE melancholy days have come, The saddest of the year ; ~ When it's a little too warm for whiskey, And a little too cool for beer. THERE was a young man in Chicago Who said, " May I to your pa go, And ask for your hand, And your houses and land ? " Said the timid young man in Chicago...

CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1878

CURRENT TOPICS. THE cold weather that we have had lately warns us of the rapid approach of winter. A few snow drops have been seen, Prof. Rood's ulster has bloomed forth for another season, fires have appeared in most of the recitation rooms, our worthy President has come out in a new muffler of approved pattern, and the various classes are experiencing those delightful changes of temperature in the lecture rooms of their different instructors, for which the college is so noted. By what inscrutable providence the mass of students are preserved from death from consumption and inflammation of the lungs, and the rest from being rheumatic cripples for the remainder of their neuralgic lives, by the violent extremes of heat and cold alternately met with in the sanctums of our revered professors, must ever remain a mystery. An enterprising student has recently been going the rounds of the lecture rooms with a thermometer. The results of his investigations are startling in the extreme. Goin...

FOOT-BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1878

FOOT-BALL. IT is not a matter of very great wonder that Columbia is beaten whenever she attempts to measure •herself in the foot-ball arena with any worthy antagonist. The parody on that exciting game, which appears every afternoon on the plot of unoccupied ground in front of the college, called the " campus," by some wretchedly ironical wag once on a time, does not even fit teams for the few class matches which occur every fall. How, then, can we expect to cope successfully with our sister colleges, who have large, healthy campi, so called, not from motives of politeness to the Faculty, but because they really are "fields." Our campus (we retain the name in cutting sarcasm) seems merely large enough to be a worthy place for the recreation and reproduction of the sparrows ; and the twenty or thirty undergraduates who choose to get their heads banged or noses broken against the iron fence, vainly trying not to kick the ball into the street, present a sight absurdly contemptible to al...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1878

CORRESPONDENCE. A Rational Plan for Semi-Annual. MR. SPECTATOR MY criticism on the Semi-Annual in your number for Feb. 15th called forth, as you will remember, sundry expressions of censure from the students, and it was very petulantly insisted upon that, instead of fault-finding, a public writer should suggest improvements. In the following I wish to present a few ideas which occurred not only to myself, but to many friends with whom I discussed the matter, as being calculated, if carried out, to elevate the standard of " Semi-Annual Speeches." I write them in the form of a set of Resolutions to be adopted by the Senior class —without any expectation, whatever, that '79 zuill ever adopt them. But they may, perhaps, bear good fruit later, and hence are entrusted to your valued columns. Resolved , That this class, in connection with the other students of the College, celebrate a festival at the Academy of Music, to be known as the " SemiAnnual of ." At this festival there shall be th...

ABOUT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1878

ABOUT COLLEGE. ROSE, *Bl, and Stewart, 'BO, raced in the 440 yds. dash at the N. Y. A. C. games on election day. R. R. LIVINGSTON and F. F. Nadal have joined their class, after an absence of a month. SINCE the arrival of President Barnard and Prof. Burgess, the temporary schemes have been replaced by permanent ones, although there are few changes. IMPROVEMENTS have been made in Prof. Smith's room, commonly called the "circus," by the addition of ventilators. W. R. STEWART, formerly of 'BO, won the \ mile hurdle race at the handicap games of the N. Y. A. C. on Election Day in 51 sec., with a start of 2 yds. Taylor, 'Bl (4 yds.), was second. WORK on the new buildings is progressing rapidly, the foundations have been laid, and the brick work is rising above the ground. So we may conjecture that if the weather is not too stormy this winter, 'BO may occupy them next year. ON Election Day a number ol last year's foot-ball team, and others trying for places on the team, went over to Hoboke...

School of Mines. THE fall games of the Greenpoint Athletic Club were held at the Manhattan Grounds, Nov. 9. Messrs. Walker and Dovale, of the Mines, and Bisselt and Roberts, of the College, took part in the hundred yards run, but were defeated. Mr. Fred Janssen, formerly of 'Bl, was the winner in the four hundred and forty yards. MR. DAVID BANKS, formerly of 'BO, S. of M., is recorded in a shooting match at Versailles, Paris.

The Law-School. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1878

The Law-School. Life at the Law-School. A LARGE number of the undergraduate readers of the SPECTATOR intend, after their graduation to become students at the Columbia Law-School, and yet the latter is one of the departments of Columbia that is least known to the members of the College. It seems therefore, hardly amiss, to give a brief description of this legal training ground whence have already come some intellectual athletes who promise to reflect in the future even greater honor than at present upon their legal Alma Mater. At the corner of Great Jones Street and Lafayette Place, in what was once a fine brown stone knickerbocker mansion, is the location of the Law-School. This building like the others bearing the name of Columbia has suffered through age and is now miserably inadequate for its purposes. Entering on Great Jones Street we find that the lower story contains a large lecture-room on the right, and an office for the faculty on the left. Entering the office, we find it a...

THE COLLEGE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1878

THE COLLEGE WORLD. Amherst:— There is a general sentiment in college that the base ball nine this year is not worth supporting. The cast of the Laocoon has been placed in the art gallery, and can be seen by visitors. The faculty are evidently enjoying themselves. There were two parties among them last week. The library fund, which has been accumulating for some years, for the purpose of building a new library, now amounts to about sio,ooo, but there is no need of more room at present, as only about $1,200 worth of books are purchased each year. Scene in the physics recitation room. Prof: " Mr. F., will you, in your own words, give me a definition of a pendulum?" Mr. F: "A pendulum is is a thing that makes a clock go." Rapturous applause from the back seats. As the term advances, we begin to think of the approaching gymnasium exhibition. The threatening tones of classmates whenever absence from exercise is suggested, warn students that such conduct will not be tolerated, for it endan...

OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1878

OUR EXCHANGES. WE congratulate the Southern Collegian on its improved appearance, and on the excellent matter it contains. The contributors are doubtless incited to good writing by the fact that two medals are given to the students who shall have written the two best essays published in it during the year. The pieces are all good, but the author of " Rambles " has, to use his own expression, " a richness of expression that needs the pruning-hook to remove the extravaganzas." For the benefit of 'B2, we quote the following from " The Average Freshman : " " It is with great reluctance that we approach that terrible youngster, the Familiar, or (in popular language) "Cheeky" Freshman. He has either " been to college before, sir," or has heard all about it, and knows the ropes. Before he has known a man a halfhour he affectionately puts his arm around his neck and playfully calls him Jack or Ed. as the case may be. He even presumes to call him by his nick-name, if the person' addressed ch...

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1878

MUSIC AND THE DRAMA. THE Italian Opera season inaugurated by Col. Mapleson at the Academy may already be pronounced a grand success. There can be no doubt that the performances are, on the whole, the best in their line ever seen in New York. It is beyond our power and not our object to criticize single performances in detail, it only behooves us to call the attention of our particular public to this series of magnificent entertainments. Miss Minnie Hauk's appearance, in particular, deserves the warmest praise. Her rendering of the quite difficult character of Grolena in Don Giavanni is quite perfect, and some arias, as, for instance, the ever beautiful batti batti , she sings in a bewitching manner. Of Madame Etelka Gerster's singing we hope to speak in our next. Among the operas to be performed in the next fortnight, we understand, will be The Magic Flute, Fidelio, Le Sonnambula, and Lucia Di Lammermoor, while Lohengrin is promised later in the season. Space forbids a more extended...

SHAVINGS. FRESHMANIC cheek. —After the Prof, had gone through with what should have been recited to him, Fresh, in a patronizing way, said, "That's right! " HE was a missionary, and had just finished telling his S. S. class a nice little story. One of the youngsters looked up slyly and asked, " Why is it that all the good boys in your stories die so young ?" He quickly replied, " Don't think that all good boys die young. Just look at me ! " The little fellow looks, and still doubts.

Extra. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 November 1878

Extra. FOOT-BALL. University of Pennsylvania vs. Columbia. OUR first match of the season was played against the University of Pennsylvania on Saturday, Nov. 16th, at Hoboken. In spite of the unsettled look of the weather, a fair sized crowd was present. The teams were composed as follows : U. of P. —Forwards: Stewart, Lee, Hewson, Elliot (Capt.), Bailey, Drayton, Hart and Picks. Half Backs : Jamison, White. Thayer and Braston. Backs : Robinson, Hazlehurst and Hance. Columbia —Forwards: Potts, De Forest, Wilson, Cornwall, Hough, Hyde, Clark and Francke. Half Backs: Lincoln, Herrick, Burton (Capt.), Seamans and Weaver. Backs: Ledoux, McCosh and Morgan. The ball was kicked off by Herrick frcm the gate end at 3:10, but we were soon forced to touch for safety. Then, by the good play of Seamans and Herrick, the Pennsylvanians were forced to do likewise. But, again, in spite of the excellent running and playing of Herrick, Weaver and De Forest, we were obliged to carry the ball across our ...

mation of the lungs, and the rest from being rheumatic cripples for the remainder of their neuralgic lives, by the violent extremes of heat and cold alternately met with in the sanctums of our revered professors, must ever remain a mystery. An enterprising student has recently been going the rounds of the lecture rooms with a thermometer. The results of his investigations are startling in the extreme. Going to college one day in the week before last, he found that the temperature in chapel was 64°. Emerging into the outer air, the mercury soon descended to 31 °. In the room in which he attended the first hour, the thermometer stood at first at about 57 0 , but rose before eleven o'clock to 73 0 . Again going out of doors, the column registered 34 0 , rising to 68° during the second hour. At the end of this hour the temperature in the hall was 41 °, and in the third hour reached as high a point as 74 0 . These figures speak for themselves, even were the passing constantly from one ex...
