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

COLLEGE WORLD. Amherst:— The foot-ball season for Amherst is over, and we shall, perhaps, be pardoned if we feel a little pride in its review.— Student. The directors of the Base Ball Association are trying to make arrangements so that the nine can board together. Till recently, we had thought that the ill-feeling between town and gown had almost vanished with the disappearance of fierce class spirit; but, alas for our hopes, no sooner is there an opportunity for petty tyranny than the town officers grasp it and use it to the utmost. — Student. A Sophomore was very unfortunate lately. By mistake he carried a "horse " into the Latin recitation room, and the animal, feeling frisky, jumped on to the floor within sight of the professor, who, with righteous indignation, invited the owner to ride out of the room. He went, and horse and rider have not been heard from since. Bowdoin; — Now that winter is approaching, we hope the authorities will see that the attic floors are relaid so that ...

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

OUR EXCHANGES. MACMILLAN'S has Mrs. Burnett's new story, " Haworth's," which is also being published in Scrtimer's. Mr. A. W. Ward gives it as his opinion that England has not enough universities to meet the wants of her population, and says that Oxford and Cambridge are at present so crowded that more attention is given to the distribution of existing knowledge than to the acquisition of what is new. " John Walter and the Birth of the Times," is an interesting article, which describes the struggles and final failure of Walter in his endeavors to establish logographic printing : that is, the use of types consisting of words instead of letters. "A Doubting Heart" is continued, and is followed by " A Peep at the Southern Negro," which cannot fail to interest the English readers of the magazine. " Shakespeare as an Adapter " is well worth reading, and a " Hymn to St. Columba," in Irish, with a translation into English verse by O'Curry is very interesting. An extract from a letter of Si...

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

SHAVINGS. FABLE. —A dog lay in a manger, and by his growling and snapping prevented the cattle from eating the hay which had been placed before them. " What a selfish dog," said one of them to his companions ; "he cannot eat the hay himself, and yet refuses to allow those to eat who can." "Come,' r finally said a bull to the cur, " you have been lying there long enongh ; get up and let me eat my dinner." " Not I," said the- dog; " I was here first, and here I shall stay." "Oh well, then," said the bull, good humoredly, " I'll tell you what I'll do ; if you won't get up, I'll toss you for the place." Whereupon the dog, remarking that he preferred not to gambol in that way, vamoosed the ranch. A CERTAIN tall and slender sophomore, under the influence of too much turkey, was making his way home last Thanksgiving night, in a wavering and devious course down Fifth avenue. Coming in the opposite direction was a short and stubby senior, in the same piteous condition, feeling his way carefu...

CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 January 1879

CURRENT TOPICS. A HAPPY NEW YEAR to all their friends is the earnest wish of the Board of Editors. We were about to add "A Merry Christmas " also, but as this article, although written December 24th, will not appear until January, we refrain, and instead, express in advance our congratulations for the numerous presents so bountifully showered on our subscribers, and hope that many enriched by the generous hands of kind friends will now be able to pay their long delayed subscriptions to THE SPECTATOR. This done, we will guarantee an unalloyed enjoyment of what promises to be a year fraught with great interest and benefit to Columbia's sons. The Seniors, graduating in a year of revived prosperity, will go forth hopefully into the battle of life. Those who remain behind will exchange their present academic quarters in the rattletrap asylum for the handsome and commodious lecture rooms of the new building. Here domiciled, they are promised no end of improvement in the course of study, w...

AMERICAN COLLEGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 January 1879

AMERICAN COLLEGES. THE year 1878 is marked by the outbursting of three statisticians : Dio Lewis, who says that threefourths of the ladies of Boston have crooked spines; the man who proved that each Brooklyn alderman wears just three and a third pairs of gloves at a funeral; and C. F. Thwing, the author of the interesting, but slightly inaccurate book which lies before us. We regret that Mr. Thwing's age, twenty-five, has precluded his entrance and graduation from all the colleges to which he refers, for, in that case, experience backed by an interesting style would have furnished us with a valuable guide book. By the way, why does not Government appropriate some youth of a family noted for longevity and send him through Harvard, Yale, Princeton, North, East South, West, etc. To be sure, it would take him just three hundred and eighty-four years to get the true statistics; but what a blessing it would be to thousands of our anxious parents. We should then have a book entitled " What...

HARE AND HOUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 January 1879

HARE AND HOUNDS. "Their peal the merry horns rung out, A hundred voices join the shout, With hark and whoop and wild halloo, No rest Westchester''s echoes knew." SIR WALTER SCOTT. THE long talked of Hare and Hounds, which we were afraid were myths have at last come off. On the morning of Dec. 23d, at 10:30, there might have been seen collected at the Tremont and Central Ave. crossroads a short dozen students variously bedecked prepared to run. The day was cold. A high wind was blowing and the ground frozen hard. The hares on this first memorable run were W. B. Parsons, Jr., '79 I and G. H. Taylor'Bl. The hounds were W. F. Morgan 'BO, " master of the hounds"; H. G. Paine '79, " whipper-in," W. Bates and P. St. George Bissell 'BO ; R. H. Sayre 'Bl ; H. de B. Parsons and W. K. Otis 'B2 ; Trask and C. D. Starr S. of M. The most remarkable part of the whole was perhaps the beauty and variety of the costumes. Prof. Rd says there are only seven colors, but even he has something to learn. S...

A VISIT FROM THE TRUSTEES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 January 1879

A VISIT FROM THE TRUSTEES. THE College was honored on the sth of December by a visit from a committee of the trustees, who came to decide upon the advisability of erecting a new place of worship. The much-enduring divine, Mr. W —ks, met them at the gate, to escort them to the President's room. With true politeness he evacuated the eight-inch board walk in favor of the distinguished visitors, who, by skillful balancing, reached the terrace dry shod ; while St. Stephen, the Jove nurtured son of a gun, waded up through six inches of campus mud, thereby destroying a model five cent shine, and leaving impressions which resembled the tracks of a mastadon suffering with the gout. At chapel, in order to have a full attendance, a body of red-eyed and begrimed individuals from the Mines were palmed off on the too confiding trustees ; while the jolly Sophs brought in the "Amens"witha reverence and vim only equaled by one of Talmage's congregations. At the close of the service the students howl...

A TALK WITH MR. GOODWIN. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 January 1879

A TALK WITH MR. GOODWIN. A FEW clays ago one of our Editors had quite a long conversation with our old Captain Goodwin, in which he spoke substantially as follows : " I noticed in No. 5 of your paper an editorial about a new boating system, which, in some parts, meets with my unqualified approval. At the last meeting of the Executive Committee of the Boat Club, it was decided that the following races should become fixtures, namely, a class race in eight-oared shells, with coxswains ; a four-oared department race; a pair-oared, and a single. Prizes will be given to each one of the winning crews, including coxswains. "The reasons for making the class race an eightoared one, in place of a six, were substantially those which you advanced in your editorial. The idea of the department races being in fours was, first, we frequently row such races, and they should not be omitted from our college regattas ; secondly, with fours, we have the hope that the Medical and Law Departments will some...

ANNUAL MEETING OF THE YALE COLLEGE BOAT CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 January 1879

ANNUAL MEETING OF THE YALE COLLEGE BOAT CLUB. WE copy the following from one of the Boston papers of July i-oth. 1899 : " An exciting meeting of the Yale College Boat Club wes held on Monday, July 9th, It was the first meeting of the club since their annual defeat by Harvard, and as it was rumored that it was to be one of great interest, there was a full attendance. Mr. J. Crutis, the president, called the meeting to order. After the reading of the treasurer's and other reports, Mr. Crook, a former stroke and present coach, rose and spoke as follows : ' 'Mr. President, it has seemed proper to me that I should explain fully why Harvard beat us last Friday. The two crews were evenly matched in weight, but the beef was in their boat and the pork in ours. Our boat took the lead at the start, and was three metres ahead at the end of the third kilometre, when our stroke's oar slipped out of the row-lock, owing to the negligence of the boat keeper, who had not properly attended to his busi...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 January 1879

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Col. Spectator : DEAR SIR : IT is rather early to begin to talk of the Burial, but as it is nearly time for 'Bl to appoint the committee, I trust a few suggestions will not come amiss, even if not accepted. It seems a pity that the celebration of such an excellent institution of Columbia, should have so stupid an ending each year. This is just what the Perideipnon amounts to, a great crowd, one or two glasses of beer to each, a furious racket, a beating to pieces of the beer glasses, and the destruction of the tables. It reflects no particular credit on Columbia, that her sons cannot have a good time together, without a heavy bill of damages, for tables and glasses. Moreover, there were some men in last years' class, who objected to contributing toward the purchase of lager beer, and then are some in 'Bl who will follow in their footsteps. It has been objected, that without the Perideipnon, we would not be able to get together as large a processi...

ABOUT COLLEGE. HAPPY New Year! DON'T forget to subscribe for the Columbiad. THIS is a year of improvement. The roof of the Observatory has lately been covered with a coating of brown paint. PRESIDENT and Mrs. Barnard at home Jan. ist. THE College and Mines were to have played the Law School, at Hoboken, Friday, 20th ult. The Law School team, however, not putting in an appearance, the other team played a practice game.

BARNARD visited the Juniors in Prof. Rood's room on Thursday, to complain of the conduct of the class lately in their class-meetings, in making such a noise and breaking the furniture. He also made a complaint about the disorder in the halls. THE Freshman class held its meeting in Prof. Van Amringe's room on Wednesday, the 18th ult. The Semi-Annual Committee was appointed, consisting of De Forest and Sands; Marshals, Ham...

THE JOINT DEBATE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 January 1879

THE JOINT DEBATE. ON the afternoon of Thursday, 14th ult., at 2 o'clock, a number of students assembled in the chapel to listen to the joint debate of the Barnard and Peithelogian Literary Societies, on the question, " Resolved , That the country owes more to the services of Alexander Hamilton than to those of Thomas Jefferson." The Barnard had the affirmative, and the Peithologia the negative side of the question. Prof. Alexander was chosen judge. Half an hour was allowed each speaker, but this limit was exceeded in each case, through the courtesy of the opposite side. Mr. Moody opened the debate for the Barnard. Mr. Foster, of the Peithologian Society, replied to the arguments advanced by Mr. Moody. Mr. Runk closed the affirmative side for the Barnard. The debate was closed by Mr. Barnum, of Peithologia. The debate was characterized by an unusual amount of study, and showed a careful arrangement of the argument, and a thorough reading of the subject. The various points were well b...

C. will hold their annual winter meeting on the evenings of Jan. 3d and 4th; the Knickerbocker Athletic Club on the evenings of Jan. 6th and 7th; Both meetings will take place at Gilmore's Garden.

After the vacation the number will be still further increased. Cyrus Edson of the Henley four may row, though it is extremely doubtful. CORNELL. Cornell has withdrawn her challenge to Harvard for a four mile race. She came to the conclusion that six weeks was rather a long time to wait for an answer, after she had read in the Harvard papers that her challenge had been accepted. We heartily concur with Cornell in her action. M. A. A. O. The Metropolitan Ass...

School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 January 1879

School of Mines. DR. CHANDLER delivered a lecture on photography at the Cooper Union Dec. 21st. Mr. Love and Mr. Laudi assisted him and many of the students were present in the audience. PROF. NEWBERRY has gone to Nevada and will be absent some time. " I don't mind being introduced to any of them you know," said a patronizing Prep., "but then there are those confounded Restaurant signs hanging all about, and the girls look deucedly hungry." IT is strange that the fumes of H. CI. and (N. H. 4 ) O. H., are so frequently seen in a certain alcove of the Qualitative Laboratory, and it is surprising to note the perfection to which the motion of suddenly grasping the two bottles has been reduced. It is more difficult than one would imagine to assume that lamblike expression of innocence accused as the instructor passes by; especially when fumes will suddenly emerge from the top drawer or from the side pocket in a most unaccountable manner. FOURTH regular meeting of the Engineering Society,...

A member of the class in language, being asked recently to name the organs of the mouth, replied : " I never studied Botany At the boating meeting held Friday, the Secretary was directed to inform the National Association of Amateur Oarsmen, that Bowdoin would prefer races in sixes, fours, and singles, held near the middle of July, in some place in New England. Cornell:— The Juniors are talking of having a " Class Ball." Our Freshman chum says three of Ithaca's trustees will probably be burnt in elegy next week.

OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 January 1879

OUR EXCHANGES. WE are rather disappointed in the January number of Apftletoris Journal, although " The Romance of a Painter " (from the French of Ferdinand Fabre), and " The Eighteenth Century," by T. E. Kebble, were pleasing, as was also a sketch by Horace E. Scudder, called " A Man may not Marry his Grandmother." There are a number of book reviews and ' An Art Budget' composed of three extracts on art, one from the Cornhill Magazine and the others from the Ninteenth Century ; that by Mr. Tyrwhitt being a reply to " Recent Art" by W. W. Mallock. Mr. Harding's article " Chrysanthema gathered from the Greek Anthology " is also interesting. HENRY ODENHEIMER SMITH still continues to inflict his letters to " his Grandma " on the suffering readers of the Syraczisan. The paper also gives us full particulars ol the battle of Hastings, which we have no doubt will be read with avidity, and if this number is sent to Lord Beaconsfield, perhaps the article on his policy will induce him to aband...

CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 January 1879

CURRENT TOPICS. THE end of the term approaches, and the voice of the collector is heard in the cloak room. The principal call now is for the Semi-Annual tax of $5.00. This is what the tax had always been up to last year when the experiment was tried of putting it at $4.00 and exempting the seniors from any assessment. As might have been expected, there was a deficit, and '7B still owes a sum of about $20.00, mostly to the printers. This year however, the Senior Committee have gone back to the old tax of $5.00, but nothing is to be collected from '79 unless there should not be sufficient taken from the lower classes to defray the expenses. These will be, for rent of the Academy of Music $265.00, for music $220,00, for printing SBO.OO, incidentals $35.00, total $600.00. There are now in the college about 240 students, 37 of whom are seniors. Throwing them out, there remain about 200 men from whom to collect $600.00. If the tax were placed at $4.00 it would require subscriptions from 1...
