THE LIBRARY. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 April 1879
THE LIBRARY. SCRIBNER'S MONTHLY closes with the April number its seventeenth volume. The writer has had the good fortune to have read every one of the 101 preceeding numbers and marked its steady improvement. This number contains two short sketches of prominent practical men. "John Ericsson," and " Henry Bergh," which are very interesting telling as they do the main outlines, and results of the work of the wonderful genius and inventor, and the honored philanthropist. " Falconberg" is concluded, and " Haworth's" is progressing. An interesting account of a trip up the Stickeen River, and a visit to its glaciers is given. In an article on the "Actors and Actresses of New York," it is shown that the Paris theatres are able to excel the New York stage by their not being " cursed with the 'star,' system." Not that their actors are more wonderful or gifted with greater genius, but that "they will not tolerate a single planet, set in a fading cloud of star-dust." H. M. S. Pinafore has crep...
OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 April 1879
OUR EXCHANGES. WE call the attention of our brother-editors to the editorial on the second page, subject, " An Inter-collegiate Press Association." THE Harvard Advocate of March 14th is before us. This paper, like all college papers at this time of year, evidently is desirous of saying something when there is nothing to be said, and it succeeds admirably. This number opens with a poem entitled " Astarte," which is fully up to the average of collegiate poetry. The idea of the "young ladies' college" that is to be founded at Cambridge, is probably the cause of " A Co-education Racket" and "Sold Again." Of the two we preferred the former to the latter, though that is not saying much. A correspondent desires to have the time for the Harvard-Columbia freshman race fixed for the same day as the Yale-Harvard University contest. Among the reasons he cites is that "New London, last June, failed even to provide a sufficient amount of food for the visitors," and that it would be impossible for...
SHAVINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 April 1879
SHAVINGS. TWO sophomores enter a horse-car ; the first takes the only vacant seat, and the second sits in his lap. Presently a young lady enters, and the second soph, rising, says, " Take my seat, madam." Fact. — Crimson. WE are indebted to the Yale Courant for the two following pathetic pieces : There was a young soph, from Hoboken, Sent to his true love as a token A photograph new Of himself, a la crew, — The once happy engagement is broken. There is a fair maid in this city, Whose hand is exceedingly pretty, I kissed it one night In the silver moonlight,— And the way that it slapped was a pity. SMART Sophomore—"What fruit would you most resemble, when riding on a jackass ? " InnocentLooking Freshman—"Give it up." S. S. —"A beautiful pear." I. L. F.— " All right; come outside and I'll try it." — Advocate.

CURRENT TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 April 1879
CURRENT TOPICS. FOR the third time this year we have to chronicle the acceptance of the resignation of one of our Board of Editors. This time it is Mr. Frank L. Henry, who finds that his other duties make this step a necessity. To fill the vacancy so made, at the meeting of The Columbia Spectator Association, it was deemed best not to elect another representative from the freshmen. By unanimous vote Mr. J. D. Livingston, 'BO, was elected, and has since then accepted the position. THE Athletic Meeting was not only a success, but a great success. On Saturday night every seat was occupied, and the performances were fine. President Goodwin and his three colleagues, Messrs. W. B. Parsons, Jr., '79, C. Eldredge, '79, R. T. P. Fiske, 'Bl, S. of M., who had the matter in charge, are greatly to be praised for their exertions. Mr. Thomas W. White, the Referee, the Judges, Time-Keepers, Scorers, and the other officials, deserve no little praise for the way their share of the work was done. We ...

OUR REPORTER'S NOTE BOOK. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 April 1879
OUR REPORTER'S NOTE BOOK. WILL the sophomores' attempt to raise money prove successful ? Who are managing the affair ? What is the name of the new operetta which is said to be so good ? Questions of this kind are now extensively asked by those who read the notice that " The Class of 'Bl Columbia College, expect to give a musical entertainment at the Union League Theatre, on the evenings of April 28th and 29th, for the benefit of their class boat." To answer those interrogatories the gentleman, who has entire control of the affair, was interviewed by our reporter. He willingly volunteered any information which he could give on the subject. It has been decided to have the performance on both evenings in order to prevent the crowd that would attend a single performance. The operettas will be put on the stage in first class style and after careful rehearsing. The chorus is to consist of fourteen male voices, and a like number of ladies. The new operetta is taken from one of the Ingolsby...
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 April 1879
CORRESPONDENCE. WE must again state to our contributors that no letters or articles will be published by us that are not accompanied by the author's name, not necessarily for publication, but as a guarantee of good faith. Messrs. Editors:— THE last two numbers of the Harvard Crimson, which you so kindly placed on file in the Library, were not to be found the next day. Did you withdraw them, or has some other student stolen them ? (I believe in calling a spade a spade, you see.) If the latter is the case, do let me have a small space in your columns to most emphatically protest against such thefts. It is not only dishonest, but it also incommodes other students, who have the same right to read and enjoy these publications. It is a great pleasure to read the papers of our sister colleges, and your favor of placing them on file is duly appreciated. Is there no way this evil can be stopped ? R. S. T. [We are much obliged to our correspondent for his information, and will do our best to ...
SPORTING COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 April 1879
SPORTING COLUMN. Athletics. COLUMBIA : The Spring Games will take place on the 3d of May, entries will probably close April 28th. THE Athletic Association held a meeting in THE SPECTATOR Office on Wednesday, April 2d, to appoint delegates to the Athletic Convention. Messrs. Parsons and Kingsbury were elected. The delegates were instructed to use their influence to have the graduate races left out. W. J. U. ROBERTS, 'Bl, was the winner of the halfmile run handicap in the Manhattan Athletic Club opening games, on April 12th. He was scratch man, time 2 min. 14 sec. INTER-COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION.— A meeting of the Association was held at the Fifth Avenue Hotel on April 3d. Delegates were present from Columbia, Harvard, Princeton, University of Pennsylvania, Union, Lehigh University, Wesleyan, C. C. N. Y., Williams and Rutgers. Stevens' Institute was admitted to the Association, and St. Lawrence College was rejected. The following officers were elected for the ensuing year: Mr. W...
ABOUT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 April 1879
ABOUT COLLEGE. THE question of the clay. " How much did you lose on the Four hour race?" ON April Bth, the students, on coming up to college read with various feelings the sophomore Proclamation and the freshmen amused themselves in tearing the notices down and the sophs kept posting up new ones. AN exchange says, " In the race of matrimony it is not always the girl who covers the most laps that wins." OUT of a. strictly friendly feeling to our readers, we wish to state that a Yale senior feeling aggrieved at an article in the Yale News, made an assault on one of its editors and was decidedly worsted. THE Athletic Meeting was such a success, that it will in all probability be repeated next year. In that case the time will be fixed for some date during the winter months. " TIME FLIES." Only five weeks to the close of college exercises and then for a nineteen weeks vacation. 'Bl distinguished herself at the Boat Club games, taking four ist, and two 2nd prizes. OWING to the indispositi...
PROCLAMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 April 1879
PROCLAMATION. Whereas, the present freshman class of Columbia College have, since the 13th day of October, submissively acknowledged that they were not entitled to carry canes and wear high hats on the college premises, and Whereas, it is the opinion of the class of 'Bl that such docility and meekness should receive a suitable reward, therefore Resolved , That the class of 1881, Columbia College, do permit the members of said freshman class to carry canes and wear high hats about the college premises on and after April 10, 1879. Resolved, That copies of these resolutions be printed and posted up in and about the college buildings. Messrs. Hinman and Sloan were appointed a committee of two for the purpose of attending to the printing of the same. THOUGH the freshmen are approaching sophomoric dignity, that point has not been reached yet as witness the following.:— AT Williams—A freshman says he is sure to flunk if that proposition about the circumcised polygon is on his paper. AT Cor...
School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 April 1879
School of Mines. THE Base-Ball Club of 'B2 should begin operations now as the warm weather comes. PROF. —" What kinds of Mining are carried on in the State of New York ?" Student. —" Well, Gold, Silver, and — and— Kalsomining." ANY who are interested in the blue printing can find out much about it by going to Dr. Chandler's lec-ture-room any bright afternoon after two o'clock. It is very easy and cheap. THE photographs of '79 are now " on 'change," and a motley crew they represent. Some smiling, some sullen, heavy whiskers here and there, smooth faces preponderating, one or two passably good-looking, but the majority strongly the reverse. We presume there is a certain satisfaction attendant on the contemplation of these pictures by members of the class, but this consideration aside, one can't but think it a pity to perpetuate such faces. SOME half dozen more of the students of 'Bl passed their final examination in experimental qualitative analysis last week. Some surprise has been e...
School of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 April 1879
School of Law. VERY little in the way of news has transpired at the Law School since our last issue. The school, while it may be an institution admirably calculated for the building up of a knowledge of the law, as an agency for the evolution of startling events is a notable failure. Everybody about the place seems perversely determined not to create news. The students persist in behaving themselves, the faculty obstinately refuse to establish any irksome rules, at which storms of righteous indignation might be aimed, and things are really in a very bad situation. The trustees of the college meet here occasionally, but they can't be induced to engage in any sanguinary strifes, or if they do indulge in such pastimes, all record of them is buried in oblivion. All that the hungering curiosity of the student can learn of the proceedings of that august body is what the ominous placard hung upon the door of their council chamber reveals, " The Trustees of the College are now in Session." ...
THE COLLEGE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 April 1879
THE COLLEGE WORLD. Bowdoin : The Orient very truly says, in refutation of the theory so often advanced that colleges should confine themselves more to one branch of athletics, in which they may excell, and not try to do well in everything : "The true end of sports in college is not to make professional base-ballists or professional boating men, nor is the main object even to reflect glory on the College, but to create and maintain interest in physical culture." The class of 1854 intend to celebrate the twentyfifth anniversary of their graduation during the coming Commencement. The following juniors have been chosen Editors tor Volume IX. of the Orient: Bartlett, Burbank, Dane, Grindall, Hall, Spring, and Wing. Their first number will be issued April 23d. Harvard : Owing to the unsuccessful attempts to assemble a quorum of the Art Club, no officers have been elected. It is rumored that a Bicycle Club is shortly to be established. The Annual Dinner of the Harvard Advocate took place a...
OUR EXCHANGES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 April 1879
OUR EXCHANGES. AS we write the March number of the Yale Lit. is before us. This issue is a pleasurable one to read, being freed from those standbys of Lit. editors in general, i.e., Reviews. Its first article, " An Acquaintance with Literature," draws the line between a "great reader" and a " discriminating reader." "A Russian Missionary " is excellent, both in respect to the substance and style of the article. Two paragraphs from the " Portfolio " particularly caught our attention, one on the entertaining powers of a certain class of young ladies, and the other on the habit of "damning by faint praise," as exemplified in designating a man as a "Good-hearted fellow." To our minds, the March number of the Nassau Lit. is not up to the standard of a Literary Magazine. We always regret to see reviews as "The Lady of the Aroostook " taking the place of articles in any college journal, and especially sorry to see Princeton's representative fall into that error. The Princetonian is partly ...
