GOLF SITUATION. No Course Selected—Many Candidates—A New Plan for Choosing Team—Fall Tournament Project Abandoned [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
GOLF SITUATION. No Course Selected—Many Candidates — A New Plan for Choosing Team — Fall Tournament Project Abandoned Up to the present time the Executive Committee of the Golf Club has not been able to secure the use of a course for the members of the club and team. The Committee, however, has not been idle. During the summer several communications were held with Dr. J. A. Wells of the Englewood Club, with the result that a proposition that we should use their course was brought before the governors of that club. Dr. Wells himself was in favor of the adoption of the proposition, but the governors refused to do so, on the ground that their course was already overcrowded on Saturdays and holidays ; that they had at present a large number on the waiting list, and finally that the plan would necessitate a change in their constitution and bv-laws. Since College opened an offer has been received from the owner of the property on which the Lawrence Harbor Golf Club was situated, to the ef...

Freshman Football Practice [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
Freshman Football Practice The first practice of the Freshman football team took place last Tuesday. There were only sixteen men out altogether. On Wednesday, on account of the difficulty which Mines men find in getting out early, there were but twelve players on South Field. The team was at a disadvantage on account of the absence of a coach and the fact that the players are not used to each other. The team lined up Wednesday as follows: Marks, right end ; Rees, right tackle; Yingo, right guard; Jacobs, center; Bogert, left guard; Duell, left tackle; Popper, left end; Hatch, quarter; Benjamin, right half; Young, left half; Arkell, full back.

FOOTBALL PRACTICE. Hard Work Has Been the Rule During the Week—Some Men in Poor Condition. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
FOOTBALL PRACTICE. Hard Work Has Been the Rule During the Week—Some Men in Poor Condition. In spite of the overwhelming defeat by Pennsylvania last Saturday, the practice this week has been of a nature to warrant the expectation of a creditable showing in the game with Yale to-morrow. San ford has daily put the men through hard work, and the play has shown decidedly more ginger than has heretofore been noticeable. He has several times taken part in the game with the scrub himself, and his presence in the line-up has greatly inspirited the team. On Monday two twenty-minute halves were played, and in that time the Varsity was able to score four touchdowns. Weekes and Berrien were particularly in evidence as ground gainers, and Morley's punting showed marked improvement. Weekes, Morley and Ashley were all given a trial at drop-kicking and did very satisfactory work. For the scrub McCollom was especially strong. He caught the ball on the kick-off once and ran back twenty yards through t...
Mass Meeting Postponed [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
Mass Meeting Postponed The election of managers and assistant managers, which was to have taken place at the mass meeting last Tuesday, was postponed until a week from to-day. The reason for the postponement was the question of the legality of the nominations. The constitution of the Athletic Association requires among other things that "the nominations made by the Executive Committee be posted by the general athletic treasurer in conspicuous places about the college grounds." It also requires that the independent nominations be printed in SPECTATOR one week before the mass meeting. Phe first condition was not complied with at all, and in one instance the second condition was not fulfilled. As it seemed to be the opinion of the mass meeting that the nominations were not entirely legal, action was deferred. H. H. Bayne, 'Ol S., took the opportunity to withdraw his nomination as manager of the crew. I hereby send in the nomination of J. Marcus, 1902 Law, as manager basketball team. ED...
Alumni Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
Alumni Notes Columbia men will be sorry to hear of the death of David Hays, an alumnus of this University, who was one of the most prominent citizens of Rochester, N. Y. Mr. Hays graduated from the Columbia Law School in 1881, previous to which time he had been actively engaged in important work at Berlin University. After passing his examination for the bar he settled at Rochester, where he soon came to be recognized as a most able lawyer. Mr. Hays was engaged in many interests outside his profession. He was a founder of the Alliance Bank, died one of its directors, formed the Fidelity Trust Company, and was its vice-president. Mr. John T. McDonough is an example of a Columbia graduate who is at present holding a prominent position before the public. Mr. McDonough is the Republican candidate for Secretary of State. His profession is that of the law, and his best efforts in that line, which have done most to create a name for him, have been made in behalf of the working men of this ...
The "Acta" and "Spectator"— A Retrospect [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
The "Acta" and "Spectator"— A Retrospect There were no echoes after the prolonged and varied contest between the only two representative papers Columbia ever had was finally concluded. 1 he scars of battle were, at best, but skin deep, and the cicatrix no longer existed to mark the place of an early wound; but while the war waged it was at all times earnest yet fair and manly withal. The outcome was, perhaps, inevitable, although few, if any, of the Acta staff were willing to recognize the outcome of the issue, which they only too clearly foresaw. The Acta quietly and composedly expired some few years after the writer of these reminiscences was fortunate enough to graduate with reasonable dignity, and the SPECTATOR has since continued, so he has been informed, to wax strong and lusty, while its present editors perhaps have but a vague and uncertain notion of the trials through which their paper has successfully passed. These observations are prefatory to a brief recollection of the ...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
Any men in the University desiring to become candidates for the position of assistant business manager of SPECTATOR can consult the manager at this office on any day at 11.30. Rome was not built in a day, nor a winning Varsity eleven in two years. It is utterly ridiculous to expect the team _to win every game in which it enters, and Columbia men are bound to realize that it is only by persistent and continuous effort and the birth of a college spirit which will not fade into nothing in the face of misfortune that Columbia can take the place in the van which is rightfully her own. For this reason we should spare no effort to make the Yale game the occasion of a never-to-be-forgotten display of the spirit which will win for us in the end. It gives considerable pleasure to note that the Freshman football team is at last under way. Yes, after Freshman teams at other universities have been playing football for nearly a month, our Freshmen have actually begun practice. During the. past we...

Six Men Selected to Compete for Places on Penn Debate Team [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
Six Men Selected to Compete for Places on Penn Debate Team Preliminary trials for the Pennsylvania debate team were held Wednesday evening. Room 422 Library was about two-thirds filled with an intciested and attentive audience. M. L. Cardozo, president of the Debating Union, was in the chair, and timed the speakers.

Dean Van Amringe, Professor Robinson, Professor Dunning, Dr. Canfield and Mr. Carleton judged the debate, ihe subject was, "Resolved, 1 hat the United States should adopt a system of graded subsidies, based on mileage navigated by registered American vessels engaged in foreign trade."
