CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 December 1878

CURRENT TOPICS. ACCOMPANYING this number of THE SPECTATOR is issued a supplement, with the idea that all our college songs needed to make them popular was their publication in a cheap and handy form. 'Tis true we have a good song-book, but the price, though not exorbitant, has hindered a free circulation. These nineteen songs we publish, are, with two or three exceptions the ones now chiefly sung at Columbia. Few students know more than one verse of even the most familiar pieces. This fact is plainly felt on such occasions as the Burial of the Ancient, etc., and was noticed particularly at the welcome to our noble Henley crew. Hereafter there will be no excuse for ignorance of the remaining verses in either the Sophomore Monday concerts in Prof. Chandler's room or in the fine oratorios that are given with such feeling and expression on the trains of the Harlem R. R. A copy of this supplement will be presented to every subscriber. Others may obtain copies at the rate of fifteen cents...

FOOT-BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 December 1878

FOOT-BALL. Princeton vs. Yale. THURSDAY, the 28th ult., was a day of Thanksgiving for Princeton. Yale and Princeton both having defeated Harvard, and as we were not represented at the convention, this game was to settle the college championship. In spite of the threatening weather, nearly 3,000 people were collected on the St. George's cricket ground at Hoboken. The game was called at 2:25, and Princeton having won the toss, chose the southern goal. The wind was blowing straight across. Princeton —Forwards: Bradford, McDermott, Ballard, Brotherling, Devereux, McAlpin, Loney and Bryan. Half backs: Waller, Minor, McNair and Withington. Backs : Miller, Cutts and Larkin. Yale—Forwards: Farwell, Fuller, Hull, Harding, Lamb, King and Eaton. Half backs: Brown, Peters, Thompson, Watson and Camp (captain). Backs: Wakeman, Nixon and Badger. Camp, having kicked off the ball, went for Princeton's goal, and in a few minutes they were obliged to touch for safety. Then away it flies for Yale, but ...

ABOUT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 December 1878

ABOUT COLLEGE. HOW did you pass the holidays? SINGING in the halls is becominng popular, much to the disgust of St. Stephen. MONTHLY examinations in Professors Drisler's and Smith's rooms are now held in writing. DURING the Thanksgiving recess the hall near Prof. Peck's room has been re-floored. THE Juniors are revelling in " Stubb's Constitutional Plistory of England," to the tune of 20 pages a lesson. FROM the catalogue we find : Seniors, 37; Juniors, 62; Sophomores, 69; Freshmen, 78. Total, '7B-'79, 246. Total, '77—'7B, 227. LAST Monday's rain forced a changing of seats in the "late circus" as the new patent ventilators ventilated too much rain on the chairs below. THE Freshmen team challenged the Princeton Freshmen for a game of foot-ball, but the challenge was refused, on the ground that the University team did not wish them to play. THOSE stone slabs which have been collecting on the campus for the last month are being arranged in the shape of steps from the campus, and improv...

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

THE COLLEGE WORLD. Amherst:— The Glee Club are hard at work, as they expect to give a concert soon, though the place is not yet settled. An absent-minded student recently carried a case containing a pack of cards to church for his prayerbook. Upon opening it, the cards fell out, much to his dismay, and to the horror of persons in the vicinity. Moral —Don't play cards ! The prudent committee have full power to enlarge the library, and work will probably be commenced next summer. The plan has not yet been decided upon. The "Jerseys" for the foot-ball team have arrived. The "rushers" have dark caps, the "half-tends" white with dark bands, and the "tends" dark caps with white bands. The college has recently received the following donations : E. W. Vail, son of Dr. Vail, a former trustee of the college, has presented a camel skeleton. Rev. Josiah Tyler, of the class of '45, missionary to South Africa, has just sent 4 box of skins, bones, and treasured specimens of rare animals from that ...

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

OUR EXCHANGES. THE publishers of the Atlantic Monthly evidently intend to maintain the high character of the magazine in all departments during the coming year. Topics of political, economical, and social interest will be treated by the able writers whose articles have of late attracted such wide attention. Serial stories by W. D. Howells, T. B. Aldrich, and Miss E. W. 01ney, are promised, as well as one by Bjornsen, the great Norwegian novelist. Mrs. Stowe will write frequently, and Miss Jewett, Miss Woolson, Mrs. Cooke, and others equally well known, are amongst the regular contributors.

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

THE LIBRARY. KNIGHT'S POPULAR HISTORY OF ENGLAND, Standard Edition, 8 vols., John W. Lovell, N. Y. NOW that the study of history has been discontinued at Columbia, it becomes necessary for every man who wishes to keep up that very important branch of liberal education, to provide himself with that work which will most nearly supply the place of professional teaching. It is, unfortunately, extremely difficult to find such a history, for it must be at the same time comprehensive, unprejudiced, popular and correct. Especially is it difficult to find such a work on the most important department of English history, neither those of Froude, Macauley, Hume, or Hallam being suited to the wants of the self-taught student. Mr. Lovell has, however, in republishing the work before us in a handsome, cheap, and convenient form, supplied exactly the wants of the Columbia student in this respect. Knight's Popular History of England is too well-known to need any more notice at our hands than in such...

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

SHAVINGS. ONE of our exchanges offers to publish original poetry at the same rate as advertisements. THE Chinese liken a drunkard's nose to a lighthouse, warning us of the little water that passeth underneath. AN Amherst " Aggie '' says that an indirect way of getting a glass of water at his boarding-house is to ask for a third cup of tea. A WESTERN editor having published a leader on " Hogs," a rival paper in the same village took him to task for obtruding his family matters on the public. A GROCER advertises in the Burlington Sentinel: " Hams and Cigars, smoked and unsmoked, for sale by A. S. Dewey." " SAY, Tom," said one Sophomore to another, "what does that sign mean ?"—' Passementerie pour Dames !' " Why, damn poor passementerie, of course," answered the linguistic Tom. " WHAT do you think of Brown's preaching ?" asked a theologue the other day. " I think," was the reply, "that he did better two years ago." " But he didn't preach then." " That's what I mean."

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

CURRENT TOPICS. ON Friday, December 6th, our Freshman played a match game of foot-ball with what was supposed to be a representative team from the Freshman class of Rutger's College. Rumors, that all who played on the Rutger's team were not Freshman, having been circulated, a copy of the Rutger's Catalogue for 1878 -9, was obtained and the various class rolls examined. With three exceptions, the team was found to be composed of Freshmen. The names of those three gentleman were Messrs. Ruh, Bishop and See. The latter has his name on the roll of the Junior Class, while we do not find any mention whatever of Messrs. Bishop and Ruh. This is a serious matter, and should be fully ventilated. If it turns out to be a mistake in the catalogue, we would be much pleased, but if it is found to be, as we suspect it is, an underhand action, our Freshmen will claim that game and with justice. Their challenge was not to a University, but to a class team. It has always been a habit among the college...

EXCUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 December 1878

EXCUSES. WHAT charming little romances those are, which our good President is called on to critize and approve every now and then, after one of our gay Columbia boys had been separated for a few days from the bosom of his bereaved class. What does he call them ? Excuses. Well, that is good ! How much trouble those same excuses can give one to be sure. I can behold even after this lapse of time the surprise depicted on the face of my paternal guardian, when, opening the well-known monthly packet stamped, '' Columbia College," he read an interesting though brief account of his own unsuspected illness, together with touching narratives of the demise of one part of his still flourishing family, and the marriage of the other. Had not the little leaflets been such arrant little liars, his household would have been depopulated. Well, I haven't tried the thing since then, I prefer to let my absences be unaccounted for. But if one is troubled at all with a useless, burdensome thing, called a...

OUR REPORTER'S NOTE-BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 December 1878

OUR REPORTER'S NOTE-BOOK. A FEW clays ago, our reporter started out on a voyage of discovery. It was quarter of one, and he had been excused " for non-attendance during the third hour, on account of business for his father," having been refused an excuse which asked for leave of absence, "on account of a S-v-nth R-g-m-nt Parade." Going by the cloak-room, he saw M-k-, faithful guardian of overcoats. Going in, he asked the faithful g., what the cloak-room in the new building was to be like. " It's going to be a mighty foine one, Sir ; and perhaps we may have two." In answer to how you enter them, he said : " You have got to go in on the first story, and there are three stair-ways, Sir, by which you can go down to the basement." Are they underground ?" "Oh ! No, Sir ; they are level with the street, but there is no entrance on the basement floor." "How large are they to be?" "Each of thim, Sir, will be fifty feet long and thirty-five wide." Just then the whistle blew, and M-k- hurried ...

HIGH TIED AT PRINCETON. DEDICATED TO PROFESSOR WHISKIE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 December 1878

HIGH TIED AT PRINCETON. DEDICATED TO PROFESSOR WHISKIE. THERE is a beautiful legend of a bell in a tall tower at Princeton which was to be rung whenever the entire town was at peace and when law and order reigned supreme. For fifty years its iron tongue wagged not in its mouth. The rust began to accumulate ; but in the year 1878 it was rung by accident, which forms the subject of this ballad. The old mare climbed the belfry tower; They pulled her up by twos and threes. Save the weird striking of the hour The town heard naught but sighing breeze. For weeks the place had run with blood ; But now its weary limbs did rest. Like slumbering Noah after Flood, Or Sleepy Hollow ever blest. The top, at length, with labor reached, The beast's fore-leg with bell-rope tied — Then swore the crowd that he who " peached," 'Twere better for him he had died. The bandit crew then stole away To watch and wait what racket proved. The mare exulting in a bale of hay Wagged her huge jaw nor muchly moved. B...

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

FOOT-BALL. School of Mines 'Bl vs. College 'Bl. THOSE persons who went out on the 2.30 train up the Harlem road on December 6th were unmis- takably aware that a party of Columbia students were on board, from the sweet melodious strains issuing from one of the rear cars. The occasion that brought these collegians to Mott Haven was a game of football between eighty-one in the college and their companion class in the Mines. The make-up of the teams was : MINES. — Forwards. —Wilson, Hough, Van Sinderen, Griswold, Stearns, Martinez. Half-backs— Raymer, Ledoux (Captain), Swain. Backs. —W. Starr, C. R. Smith. COLLEGE. — Forwards. —Sayre, Angell, Wilcoxson, Forster (Captain), Muller, Mills. Half-backs. —Gibbons, Crane, W. Roberts. Backs. —Patten, Tieman. Mr. Hendricks was umpire for Mines and Mr. Beebe for College. Mr. Potts 'BO, School of Mines, acted as referee. From the kick-off until time was called it was rough work, little time being spent with fouls. After a short spell of sharp figh...

Columbia Freshmen vs. Rutgers Freshmen. ON December 6th an unsatisfactory game of football, resulting in a draw, was played between the Freshmen fifteens of Columbia and Rutgers. The teams were : COLUMBIA. — Forwards. —De Forest, Lawrence, Ward, Waring, Leopold, Trask, De Lancey. HalfBacks. —Lawson, Clark (Captain). Lee, Henry, Rutherford. Backs. —Walsh, Hamilton, Bell. RUTGERS. — Forwards.— Randolph, Hover, Cranmer, W. Chamberlin, Scudder, Norris (Captain). Bervier, Rogers. Half-Backs. —See, Bishop, Baker, Ruh, Backs.— C. Chamberlin, Pitcher, Lansing. Umpires.— Mr. W. F. Morgan, 'Bo, for Columbia; Mr. G. B. Fielder, 'Bl, for Rutgers. Referee. —Mr. A. Williamson, Rutgers, *Bl, whose decisions were characterized by such partiality that he was succeeded by Mr. Percy Morgan at the end of the first bout. Clark kicked off for Columbia at 3.30 P.M., and in six minutes, after fine playing by Henry and De Forest, Ward obtained a touch-down, which was disallowed by the referee. Before time w...

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

ABOUT COLLEGE. HOW do you like the new hall flooring ? Rather slippery, eh ? WHAT are you going to do Christmas ? HOPE you will enjoy yourself. J. STUART, formerly of 'Bo, is a member of the same class at Amherst. ON Tuesday, Dec. 3d, the freshmen played a game of football against a mixed team, winning by a score of 1 goal, 3 touch-downs. A PETITION to the trustees for a plot of ground, to be used for a college campus, has been drawn up, and is being signed in the SPECTATOR office. THE continual rains of the last few days have shown conclusively the need of the new buildings, with better ventilation. The atmosphere in some of the recitation rooms has been absolutely unwholesome. THAT walk from the new steps to the gate is just finished, much to the delight of the students, who now use it continually. THE Princeton freshmen have again declined our freshmen's challenge. This time it is on account of their Christmas examinations. AT the regular monthly meeting of the Junior class, held...

School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 December 1878

School of Mines. THE epidemic of polo caps, which has raged so fi rcely at Yale and Harvard, is spreading rapidly in the Mines. The majority of the victims are amongst the young and tender subjects of the first class. GIDDY under-classman to reverend senior, " Can you tell me, sir, if Columbus was an Acaleph ?" R. S. : "Of course not. A vertebrate." G. U. : "Ah! They told me he was the great discophora." Precipitate retreat of the second year man. WE are glad to see the frames in the drawing room again occupied. The custom of thus exhibiting the work of the students has a three-fold advantage, and should certainly be maintained. It stimulates the men to perform good work, in the hope of being thus rewarded, it practically shows them how their drawings should be done, and it gives visitors to the school an idea of what we can accomplish. THE new system of radiators in the drawing academy is simply gorgeous, and the scenic effect they produce is equalled by their utility. They not onl...
