Barnard Literary Association Meets —New Members The regular weekly meeting of Barnard took place Wednesday night. An oration on the present campaign by G. G. Hopkins, 'Ol S., was the first of the exercises. Turnbull, 'O3, made the first extempore speech. He gave a rather eulogistic account of "Roosevelt's Speech-making Trip." R. B. Hincks, 'O2, spoke on "The Sound Money Parade" from the point of view of a gold Democrat. "The AngloGerman Alliance" was the topic chosen by R. Kelly, 'O2, who was the third extempore speaker. The debate was on the subject, "Resolved, That the course of the operators in the Pennsylvania coal region, in refusing the demands of the miners, was justifiable." Kelly, 'O2, and Hunt, 'O2, spoke for the affirmative, and Keeler, 'Ol, and Hopkins, 'O2 for the negative. The latter were awarded the debate. Considerable interest was shown in the volunteer speakers and Lawrence. Clark and Halstead, all of 1902, spoke in trials for membership. After the discussion Wolfe...

French Department Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
French Department Notes Plans are being formed for an unusually active season in the Societe Frangaise de l'Universite Columbia and also in the Societe Frangaise de Barnard College. It is hoped that all students of the University, who are interested in French and somewhat conversant with the language, will take part in the work of these associations. Both societies expect to give, as usual, a series of joint French dramatic performances, some time in the spring. The Romance Club, including the advanced students, as well as the instructors, of the Department of Romance Languages and Literature, has entered upon another year's work. The society has done much good in the past, by bringing officers and students of the department into closer personal touch, for the meetings of the association are partly of a social character. Moreover, opportunity has been offered by these gatherings for the reading and discussion of current magazine articles and new books of interest to scholars of the ...

Degree of E. M. from Columbia Accepted in Lieu of Examination in South Africa [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
Degree of E. M. from Columbia Accepted in Lieu of Examination in South Africa Word has been received by Professor Monroe at the School of Mines from the managers of the mining fields of South Africa, that hereafter the degree of the Columbia University School of Mines will be accepted in lieu of an examination, as evidence of competency to practice mining engineering in that country. Like consideration has been shown to but one other mining school in this country. For a long time the Columbia School of Mines was the only school of its kind in the country, and it has equipped and sent into the field more than one-third of all the mining engineers in the land. At the present time it is still the leading mining school in America. Six of the graduates of the Columbia Mining School are now in South Africa holding responsible positions. The standard of admission and the requirements necessary for a degree at Columbia are fully a year in advance of those at the majority of the mining schoo...

Correspondence [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
Correspondence Editor SPECTATOR: Dear Sir: —The newspapers state that Columbia is expected to participate in the Sound Money Parade on November 3d. In the great demonstration of 1896 the University made a splendid showing, one feature of which seems worthy of repetition. The writer was a member of the Drum, Bugle, and Fife Corps organized at that time. If I remember correctly, we had four bugles, six snare drums, a number of fifers, bass drum, cymbals, and a drum-major, who was the admiration of all Broadway and Fifth avenue. Practice for a week or two in advance gave us enough proficiency for the purpose, although our repertoire was not large. Arrayed in white duck trousers, white sweaters, brown leggins, and blue caps, the corps made an appearance both novel and distinctive. One mistake, however, was made, which might well be avoided another time. - Light, brass-band drums were used, when wooden ones would have given a much greater volume of sound. Columbia is a larger institution...
Freshmen Crews [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
Freshmen Crews Rowing continued under the most favorable circumstances Monday afternoon, and, in consequence, the rival College and Science crews were able to do some good work. Early in the afternoon Hanlan was out in his single shell coaching the College eight, and now and then pacing them for a short distance. F. B. Clark, H. C. Townsend, J. S. O'Loughlin and R. P. Jackson rowed in a four-oared shell, while many other Varsity men went out in the singles and doubles for the afternoon. An impromptu race of a quarter of a mile between the Science crew and a scrub crew resulted in an easy victory for the Freshmen. Hanlan was highly pleased with the manner in which they took the time from their stroke, Fraser, and said it showed marked improvement. Three Freshmen eights, accompanied by the usual number of smaller boats, were out upon the Hudson for a short time Tuesday afternoon. Hanlan, from his single shell, coached the College crew for half an hour, and later stroked the scrub eigh...
College Juniors Meeting [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
College Juniors Meeting A meeting of the class of 1902 College was called in College Hall yesterday at 12.30. As there was not a quorum present no business could be transacted. Captain Lawrence spoke to the class about the hockey team, and appealed for more candidates. He said that if all good skaters would come down to the gym and practice faithfully, we ought to be able to turn out a winning team. At present most of the members of the 99 team, all of them who are back at college, and a number of promising new candidates, are practicing goal shooting in the hand-ball courts. He explained the necessity of men being well grounded in this preliminary work before going on the ice. President Jackson announced that a series of smokers for the Juniors in College and Science had been planned, and the first one would probably be held next week. The Junior Ball Committee reported that after careful consideration they had decided to hold the ball downtown. Yale, Harvard, Williams, Brown, Dart...

Columbia University in the City of New York. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 26 October 1900
Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University includes both a college and a university in the strict sense of the words.
