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

CORRESPONDENCE. Messrs. Editors: — WHEN will we hear from the trustees about the new campus? The petition was sent in a month or so ago. If we obtain our request, an old graduate would hardly be able to recognize his Alma Mater by next fall. New buildings and a spacious campus, the number of students in the Academic department double that of six years ago, in fact, great improvements everywhere. Of course, there is room for still more, i.e ., a new chapel, new Law School buildings, and the School of Medicine more thoroughly under the trustees' control, all consummations devoutly to be wished for. R. S. T. [ln reply to our correspondent, we would say that if we had a campus at present, we could not use it until late in March or early in April. There is no doubt but by that time we will hear something decisive concerning the matter. Until then we advise patience.— EDS. SPECTATOR.] Eds. of the Spectator ; IN reading the " College Chronicle" of the World, of Feb. 24th, I was surprised a...

ABOUT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 March 1879

ABOUT COLLEGE. THE (3ovA,r) is now in the clouds i.e. those of Aristophanes. WHY are none of the juniors at work at Wood's for the crew? Do they think they do not need any practice. THE sweet strains of "Pinafore" and "My Mary Ann" are now to be heard every afternoon in the cloak room. MR. WEEKS' whistle has recovered from its attack of sore throat or whatever it was, and now makes itself heard as of old. THE sophomores did not begin Xenophon's Memorabilia until this week, having been engaged on the Alcestis, which was not quite completed last term. THE sophomores were informed that crib comes from xpvTtroo, because it is always concealed, or at least supposed to be so, by the user, till he finds out his mistake.

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

School of Mines. IN Calculus, this year, three days a week for advance lessons, and one day to review all the previous lessons. Won't these reviews be interesting in the course of a month or two ? DR. CHARLES F. CHANDLER delivered an interesting free lecture on "Sanitary Science and Public Health" in the Anthon Memorial Church, forty-eighth street near Sixth Avenue, on February 27th. MR. E. H. BOOTH, 'B2, was hit on the forehead with a crucible a few days since while passing through the assay laboratory. The deed was done by a grad- uate of the School but not with the intention of infllicting an injury as severe as was the result. Of course there could be no excuse for throwing a crucible at a man except self-defense, and although Mr. Booth is a most inoffensive gentleman, this excuse applies indirectly. The freshmen have made a practice of using the laboratories as hallways in passing from one end of the building to the other. This is annoying in any of the laboratories but especia...

School of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 March 1879

School of Law. THE Catalogue for 1878-79, which has recently made its appearance, differs materially from its predecessors. Prof. Nairne's name has disappeared from the faculty, but , Professor of Real Estate and Equity Jurisprudence, is an admired addition to their ranks. We are also gainers by the enrolment of a Secretary and a Librarian. Professors Dwight and Chase have doffed their titles of Professor and Assistant Professor of Municipal Law, and assume respectively those of Professor of the Law of Contracts and of Maritime and Admiralty Law ; and Professor of Criminal Law, Torts, and Procedure. The Catalogue enters much more into detail than those which have preceded it, and is in this respect an improvement. It is the first in which the attractions of the degree of Bachelor of Laws " Cum Laude are set forth. This degree is to be conferred upon those who receive prizes, as well as those of whom honorable mention is made by the Committee of Award. A total of 436 students is show...

COLLEGE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 March 1879

COLLEGE WORLD. Amherst : Mr. H. H. Gay, '79, has resigned the position of class prophet, and F. M. Thayer has been appointed in his place. The government has presented the college with the set of charts of the coast survey which was on exhibition at the Centennial. The charts are mounted on linen and enclosed in a handsome case. Prof. Mather has made the recitations of his Greek divisions, both of the juniors and freshmen, optional. The rank will be made out from the examinations at the close of the term, and from preliminary examinations during its course. It has been decided that hereafter the juniors in German shall have once in four weeks a final examination upon the four weeks' work. Essentially the same plan has been adopted in the department of Physics. Cornell:— The Harvard freshmen have voted to challenge the Columbia freshmen. Are you afraid of Cornell ? — Era. The new rowing machines are a nonentity, but the old ones are good for many a hard pull yet. The sophomores held ...

THE LIBRARY. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 March 1879

THE LIBRARY. WE have received from the author, Mr. E. C. Taylor of Tiffany & Cos., a reprint cf his article " An American Wedge" which appeared in the International Review for February. It is an exceedingly well written article which in a simple concise manner sets forth the great advances American workmanship in silver has made. We quote from it —"The taking of the coveted grand prize by an American exhibitor, with the additional distinction of the decoration of the Legion of Honor is the highest possible official recognition of the supremacy of our metallic art work." In another place we find the following answer given by Mr. Watherston —a goldsmith of Pall Mall to a member of Parliament: M. P. " I suppose English workmanship — especially as to watches and jewelry, is considered to be the finest in the world ?" Mr. W. " I think they are considered by English watchmakers and English jewelers to be the finest in the world, but I should say decidedly not by foreigners." T...

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

OUR EXCHANGES. THE scenes have shifted and another board has entered upon its work. To the editors this department of a sister paper is always interesting as it is like a mirror in which we may see ourselves as others see us. In some cases the mirror is cracked and false, but in the main it is true, reflecting our imperfections as well as our good qualities, if perchance we have any. We will always endeavor to give praise where merited, and in like manner censure when that is necessary. THE Yale Record is as a rule very readable and the number we have before us is no exception. Its edi- torials are good and cover a wide expanse of ground. The articles " Found —a Diary " and " Illusions of Photography " were well written and worth reading, the former especially so. We did not think so much of the "Rimes during Psychology " but the poetry "Postludium "is fair as is also the " Two Sonnets." The exchange editor is very much excited about a statement of the Cornell Era concerning the pan...

SHAVINGS. JUNIOR, parsing: " Nihil is a noun." Prof. " From what does it come ?" Jun., "It does not come at all." Prof., quizzing, •'Doesn't it come from nihilo?" Jun., " No, sir; Ex nihilo nihil fit!" —Ex. INSCRIPTION for Bob Ingersoll's tombstone " Robert Burns." — Ex. ONE of our Professors, while on the way to Mott Haven, by the Harlem R. R. with his wife and another lady, was joined by a friend. Turning to the lady with him, the Professor said, "What shall I do, I have only three tickets, and this gentleman makes our party four?" " Oh," said the lady, "give the three tickets to the conductor. Don't you know three of a kind will take two pair." (Fact.) THERE was a burst of very appreciative applause in the senior recitation room when one of them translated Units homo, nullus homo , a single gentleman is no man.— Ex.

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

CURRENT TOPICS. THE editor in charge of the illustrating department has been forced by a regard for his personal safety (he is now suffering under the effects of a thrashing delivered in consequence of the last cartoon) to put in black and white that, which until the publication of the said cartoon, he had not deemed necessary. Id est , that the faces that have appeared, and shall appear in these pages, have been and shall be generic, not individual portraits. And that, moreover, he sees no reason why when he depicts an ape, every ape in the community, thank heaven their number is very small, should immediately cry out, " That's my picture," and he also sees less reason why they should thereupon abuse, cuff, and punish him accordingly. The board hope that this statement of their fellow editor will prove satisfactory, and that in future no one will feel flattered, or the reverse, for any fancied, for fancied it must be, resemblance which they may detect to themselves or others, among...

SEVENTY-SECOND ANNUAL COMMENCEMENT OF THE SCHOOL OF MEDICINE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 March 1879

SEVENTY-SECOND ANNUAL COMMENCEMENT OF THE SCHOOL OF MEDICINE. ON the evening of February 28th, the Seventysecond Annual Commencement of the School of Medicine was celebrated at Steinway Hall. The graduating class was the smallest known for years, — consisting of only ninety-five members. This was owing to the extremely rigid examinations which the faculty deemed necessary in order to raise the standard of the institution, although it now stands very high amid other medical colleges all over the world. The exercises were simple but interesting being composed of a " Prayer," by Rev. S. H. Weston, D.D., the "Conferring of Degrees," by President Alonzo Clark, M. D. ; the "Announcement of Awards of Prizes," by Prof. T. M. Markoe, M. D.; a " Valedictory Address," by William F. Wright, M. D. of the graduating class; and an " Address to the Graduates " by Rev. R. D. Hitchcock, D.D., interspersed by excellent music from the orchestra led by C. S. Grafulla. The STEVENS TRIENNIAL PRIZE was not...

*ONLY A VASSAR GIRL. (A Tale of Moonshine, Mystery, and Misery.) [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 March 1879

*ONLY A VASSAR GIRL. (A Tale of Moonshine, Mystery, and Misery.) BY CORNICULA. CHAPTER VII. A BEAUTIFUL autumnal Sabbath came to the quiet little city by the Hudson. The bracingbreeze, as it caused the few remaining leaves to fall, bore on its wings all the balm of Indian Summer. It entered the window and fanned my cheeks, and the silvery chime of a chapel bell chased the dream that was sweeter still from the delicate, ethereal part of my brain, which we call spirit. My vision was of Maud. She stood before me, an angel of light, with golden wand, and spoke these words : "Be noble and good. Avoid deception. Live a life worth living." She would have spoken more, only the breakfast bell rang at that moment, and spirits always "go up " when meals are announced. I had arranged to go to church with Maud, but before half-past ten Tom and I devoted a short time to solemn meditation on the subject of—whether it would pay to remain at Vassal" longer. We had both been disappointed. The college...

CHEMISTRY AT COLUMBIA. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 March 1879

CHEMISTRY AT COLUMBIA. THE following letter, which is self-explanatory, appeared in the Scientific American of March 15th, in reply to a very unjust article in a former number. For the benefit of those who may not have seen it before, and also to give it a wider circulation, we reprint it with great pleasure. To the Editor of the Scientific American: — The Scientific American is in general conducted in a spirit of so commendable fairness that I have ob- served with some surprise an article in your number for January 11, referring to this institution in a tone which seemed to indicate rather a purpose to disparage than a desire to convey information. The writer says:— "At a time when the value of natural and physical science as a source of mental discipline is beginning to be acknowledged, and science itself to be respected and honored here as elsewhere, it is somewhat remarkable to see one of our oldest colleges abolish the study of chemistry in their regular course. Yet this is wha...

A PLEA FOR OUR COLLEGE CUSTOMS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 March 1879

A PLEA FOR OUR COLLEGE CUSTOMS. THE great idea at present seems to be "Abolish," and no custom, however well-established, is safe. The aim of this article is to induce our readers to pause and reflect on the result of doing away with these customs. The literary side of a college or university is no more than a continuation of a school, but the manner of treating the students and the habits and kind of life create a difference. The class feeling at college is more sharply defined. In school one boy knows that he is going to one college, another to another and perhaps of a class of twenty, four may go to the same place, the others scattering themselves in diverse directions. Thus the idea of union is spoiled. At college, however, this is different. The class is a distinct organization provoking a feeling of generous rivalry with their kindred classes and all united by common love for their Alma Mater. In most colleges this feeling has some tangible utterance, for instance, class-organ...

CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 March 1879

CORRESPONDENCE. Eds. Spec tator : SOME time ago you advocated the construction of a gymnasium for the use of the students. If this not practicable, at present, could not the Trustees make arrangements by which we could be allowed the use of some gymnasium in the city, if not free, at least at reduced rates. Many men do not care to go to the expense of joining a gymnasium just for the sake of finding whether or not they have a chance for the crew. If they were sure of getting on it would be different. As matters now are some good men are prevented from trying, who could be made useful if a gymnasium was provided for us. GYMNAST.

ABOUT COLLEGE. PARSONS, '79 has returned to College, PROF. VAN AMRINGE'S room is now adorned with a gorgeous new closet. RECENT developements point to a revival of the Baby Cup by 'B2. THE recent pleasant weather causes the students to long for the new campus. THE sophomores have not yet elected any officers for the ensuing term except the president. DURING the absence of Dr. Duffie, Mr. Walker of Calvary Chapel officiated in the Chapel. " GENTLEMEN, the pitcher that goes to the well too often is broken. In this case it is a very empty one." TORPEDOES are commencing to come into fashion. For explanation ask any sophomore of the second section. WE have seen too late the effects of the serial "Only a Vassar Girl" but will now see that it is completed in the next number. WE call attention to the posters which decorate the cloak-room and hope that our athletes will respond in full force.
