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

CURRENT TOPICS. WE have felt it a duty that we owe to our subscribers to make our present issue twelve pages of reading matter, in place of eleven, our ordinary number, by the numerous clippings concerning the I. C. P. A., that will be found on the last two pages. We know that this is of little interest to the collegians at large, but we are sure that our brothereditors, who exceed 500 in number, will read these excerpts with attention. A college paper, to our mind, should be conducted first for the students of its own particular institution, and then for the college public at large. This latter reason we hope our subscribers will deem sufficient as an excuse for our wielding the shears so freely. THE University of Pennsylvania—Princeton—Columbia race at Philadelphia next summer will be very interesting. Though the only college of boating prominence in it is Columbia, yet the Princeton and the Univ. of Penn. are well-known in athletic circles. We are glad to chronicle that it is now...

THE COLUMBIAD OF '80. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 May 1879

THE COLUMBIAD OF '80. AFTER several postponements, the Colambiad of 'BO has at last appeared before its patrons. Its advent has been eagerly looked forward to ; over 475 copies out of the 500 having been subscribed for. It is essentially " Published by the Junior Class," every drawing, save one, and including the cover, being designed by its Artist, Mr. W. B. McVickar. The one exception was drawn by Mr. McVickar's brother, formerly of 'B2, S. of M. The outside is striking and rather tasty, though we prefer .the cover of the The Miner. The title page contains an excellent imitation of the college seal. An excellent four-page editorial opens the book, giving a summary of the year which is very interesting. The Secret Societies have 152 members, just about 11 per cent of the students in the University. The Poem is in the form of a Greek Tragedy and is very good, interspersed as it is, with numerous cuts. The histories are better written than last year and as "comparisons are odious," w...

LITERARY SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 May 1879

LITERARY SOCIETIES. THE proposed meeting together of the three Literary Societies, Philolex, Peithologia, and Barnard, for the purpose of listening to an address by some eminent gentlemen, is a most excellent plan. Since we have no lecture course —would that we had — this move in the right direction is most encouraging. If it proves successful, as no doubt it will, the stimulus given to the literary societies will be very great. If these meetings could only be semi-annual as a regular institution, the results would undoubtedly be beneficial. Looking over the catalogues of both Philolex. and Peithologia, we notice the names of gentlemen who are capable of filling any lecture hall on their own merits, and who would no doubt be willing to speak to the younger members of their society as such, or as undergraduates of Columbia College. The societies are now undergoing a period of awakening, and it is the time to strike, so we wish the committee the greatest success in their labors. Peith...

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

CORRESPONDENCE. ALBANY, N. Y„ April 14, 1879. Editors THE COLUMBIA SPECTATOR. Columbia College, New York City. Gentlemen: A FEW days ago I was shown an editorial on Columbia's " Boating Programme for this Season," which appeared in a recent issue of your paper, and as the article in question contains a very serious charge against the undersigned, I must ask the use of your columns to state the facts in the case. You say, "The Association that offered a money "prize for amateurs at Watkins, where our crew natu- " rally refused to participate, tried to make out that " college graduates were professionals, and as such " protested them abroad," which is wrong in four particulars: — Ist. —The N. A. A. O. offered no prize whatever — much less one in money—at the Watkins Test Regatta, which was managed entirely by the Watkins Association. 2d. —It was generally understood that Columbia's four were prevented from rowing at Watkins by the early date of their departure for England. 3d. —The Na...

SPORTING COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 May 1879

SPORTING COLUMN. Athletics. NY. A. C.: —For the purpose of encouraging . athletics, this Club will give a special prize for every " best on record " made on the club track at any of its standard games. The club will invite competitive designs for the medal from prominent manufacturing jewelers, and the selected pattern will be copyrighted and used for this purpose only. This shows a great deal of spirit and commendable enterprise in the club, and a desire to bring our records on a par with those of the English. COLUMBIA : —Spring games May 3d, 1879, at 2 : 30 p.

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

ABOUT COLLEGE. THE cartoon, this number, pictures the new buildings with the "eye of fancy," although the " campus" is more of a reality. The SPECTATOR Department, with its many offices for advertisers, subscriptions, etc., is given, while an adjoining sketch shows our extensive cloak room and its attendants, 'Neath this, with what rapt attention are the students listening to the Prof., who has his words taken down, not by a stenographer, but, in those days of science, by a phonograph. KINGSBURY, '79, and Hubbard, 'BO, took active part in a concert on April 24th in Brooklyn. IT is wondered if boating would be found so attractive if the Normal School girls did not frequent the 2 : 30 train. IT is rumored that a certain senior of editorial propensities, is about to follow the example, set him some time since by a member of 'B2. H. G.

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

School of Mines. THE Professors have been paying visits to Pach for *79's albums. A LITTLE improvement in the lights in the drawingroom can be observed. By next winter, no doubt, they will have arrived at the brilliancy of a candle. NOW wandereth the freshman, with a file of Miners under his arm, seeking who he may give one to, and how vainly he seeketh, for are we not all alike in this respect ? THIRTY-FIRST Regular Meeting of the Chemical Society April 17. A paper on Water Gas was read by Mr. Beebe, on Fertilizers by Mr. Klepetko, and on Whale Oil by Mr Hathaway. DR. CHANDLER has been exhibiting some specimens of calicoes to the Freshman Class. They all seemed to coincide with the Doctor in admiring calicoes, particularly if well filled. PROF. J. C.

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

School of Law. THE close of the term is drawing very near, so near, in fact, that before THE SPECTATOR shall again appear on the scene it will have come and gone, and the ranks of the L, L. B.'s will have been swelled by a goodly number of recruits, the daily papers will have raised their customary howl about the swarms of young lawyers poured forth to harass a helpless community, and the paragrapher will have published his regular annual paper on the subject. The graduating class will be doubly happy in obtaining their degrees, and admission to the bar as attorneys and counselors, while members of future classes will have to serve a sort of probation as attorneys before attainining to the other and greater dignity. The seniors will receive plenty of good advice at Commencement, and won't need anything of the kind from us. We know that they are already possessed of a fine determination to labor always for the glory and exaltation of the profession, and never for sordid motives of ga...

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

THE COLLEGE WORLD. Cornell:— This is the thirty-third term since the opening of the University. At the junior Era election this afternoon, Messrs. Gifford, Johnson and Nixon were the successful candidates. The seniors in Science and Letters and in some of the technical courses propose to petition the faculty to have their diplomas made out in Latin instead of English as heretofore. The Mozart Club intends to present Pinafore about the ist of May. The enterprise has been carried through after much effort and deserves the support of every student. The entertainment will be sure to be excellent. The senior agriculturists will take farm work this term. There is but one of them. The long-looked for Cornellian is as late as the Columbiad according to the Era. The " Walking Fever " has invaded Cornell and a track has been measured around the reservoir, 10 laps and 135 ft. to the mile. The Era has the astonishing statement that the best mile was made in 9 m. 3 s., and the best half 4 m. 55 ...

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

THE LIBRARY. APPLETON'S JOURNAL for May is certainly " A Magazine of General Literature." As illustrations are now excluded from its pages, one may realize that there is considerable in its ninety-five pages of reading matter. What is more, this reading is interesting. How Appleton's has changed. Compared with the weekly issues of 1870 and later years, we can trace a steady improvement, until it has now reached its high point of excellence. " The Seamy Side," a new novel just begun, we expect will prove worth reading. It is the fruit of Messrs. Walter Besant and James Rice. A comedy, " Apples," by Mr. Julian Sturgis, fills several pages in a pleasing manner. Besides the "Editor's Table," where among other notices we find " The Success of 4 Pinafore,'" and the criticisms on the " Books of the Day," the following articles appear: "A Seat in the Chair of Destiny," "The Golden Mesh," "The Position and Influence of Women in Ancient Athens," " A Comedy of Superstition," "On the Choice of ...

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

OUR EXCHANGES. WE have received the first number of the New Series of Brent and' s Aquatic Monthly and Sporting Gazetteer , and are glad to place it among our exchanges. It will be a valuable paper for those who have neither the time nor inclination to read the weekly sporting papers, and yet desire to be fully acquainted with all the sporting and yachting news of the month. The April number contains some interesting articles well worth reading. We would endeavor to enumerate, but their number is too large for mention here. The "Correspondence" is extensive, and contains letters from well-known writers. It contains 100 pages of reading matter, so one can easily imagine how comprehensive it is. Mr. Charles A. Peverelly is its editor, and the publisher A. Brentano, Jr., 39 Union Square. The terms are: Single Numbers, 40 cents. Subscription, $4.00 per annum. THE Spirit of the Times comes to us regularly with its usually entertaining columns, but we were surprised to notice their editor...

SHAVINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 May 1879

SHAVINGS. WHY some lawyers can't sleep. They can't lie on the same side long enough. — Ex. PROF, (to Senior who persistently refuses to recognize the fact that he is " flunking"): " Now, Mr. , what is this trap rock?" Senior : " I can't, sir, recall the exact chemical composition." Prof. : " Ah, very likely. There are not six men in the country who can." Wild applause. — Tablet. AN ambitious young writer having asked, " What magazine will give me the highest position quickest?" was told, " A powder magazine, if you contribute a fiery article." — Ex. Two quotations from a freshman during the Rhetoric recitation : " What part of the poem on Sir John Moore do you appreciate most?" "Few and short were the prayers they said." " Give a simile." " As the heart of the drowning sailor sinks within him when he sees his ship moving away in the distance, so does the heart of the freshman, when with a sob he lays aside his Harper's classical library and enters the unhorseable Rhetoric."

THE COLLEGE PRESS ON "AN INTERCOLLEGIATE PRESS ASSOCIATION." [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 1 May 1879

THE COLLEGE PRESS ON "AN INTERCOLLEGIATE PRESS ASSOCIATION." THIS number we have endeavored to fulfill our promise of publishing extracts from our exchanges on the subject of the I. C. P. A. Many papers seem to like the plan, and we hope in our next issue, May 15th, to be able, after consultation, to make some definite statements. Lengthy comments on the following are unnecessary, as they merely present various views of the case. The Cornell Era, April 18th, 1879. " One objection to the plan is that editors at different colleges are elected at different times ; hence no convention could be held at a time equally advantageous to all. * * * To regulate this matter might be one aim of such an association. * * * But college journalism, unfledged and callow as it is, can be made to advance in some respects. It can be made less inflated and visionary, more substantial and sensible ; it can be given less stale wit and more humor; it can be made less puerile and inane, more manly and though...

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

CURRENT TOPICS. WE are sorrv to have to devote so much space again to athletics, hut it was not possible to avoid so doing, as since our last issue the spring meetings, athletic and boating, and the inter-collegiate have occurred, and, as a matter of record, it is necessary for us to mention them. Yet we have condensed the accounts as much as possible, especially our own meeting, giving in that case only the list of winners. The reason for the latter is plain enough as both the Acta and the Phonograph published accounts of it. Apropos of this subject we would cordially endorse our correspondent's views on the subject ot the timing of the short dashes at our games. THE students are now trembling on the verge of examination; some of them shrinking from the chasm of flunk, and others expecting to run through the different studies, as the circus-rider jumps through the paper rings from the back of his pony. We hope our readers will remember the fact that editors are subject to the same ...

A SMILE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 May 1879

A SMILE. TO thee O nature-gladd'ning smile, I sing Thine be the praise that from my lines shall flow, Who calm'st the troubled spirit with thy glow Of living sweetness. Thou beauteous silent spring Which freshens many a grieving heart. Thou thing Of wonder, in a moment born, to go Just as thou cam'st. Behold a flake of snow, Silent and pure and light it falls, to bring Its transient loveliness to earth and melt. Thus thou upon the face of infancy The loving mother's heart didst cheer who knelt. Beside the cot. ' Thus as thou flittest by The artful fair can ever make thee felt. Thou bright and joyful as the azure sky.

Crow, '7B, the President, presided, with Mr. S. A. Reed, '74, College, and '77 S. of M., on his right, and Mr. F. Le G. Gilliss on his left. At the other end sat Mr. W. S.

Benjamin, '7B, S. of M.; Parsons and Brereton, '79 ; Caldwell, 'BO, S. of L. ; Morgan and W. Taylor, '80; Sayre and G. Taylor, 'Bl ; and Otis, 'B2. It was a most enjoyable entertainment. The speeches were excellent and to the point. The financial standing of the paper was shown to have never been better, and the paper has exceeded the most sanguine hopes of its starters. Mr. S. A.

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

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of The Spectator : AN American who is unable to speak in public and who is a prominent man is an anomaly; it would be almost safe to say that such a man does not exist. Our course in college is ostensibly for the purpose of preparing us for our life-work, whatever that may be; and it is reasonable to suppose that a young man who is a college graduate has had a certain training which will give him no slight advantage in the competition into which he is about to enter. No matter what may be his walk in life, if he lives in an Englishspeaking country he must use his English. It is possible that all the knowledge of mathematics he has acquired will be of no service whatever to him, he may never see the inside of a Latin or Greek book, yet his English he must use every day, and his success in life will depend not a little on the facility with which he employs that most useful weapon. A clergyman has little use for mathematics ; a bank president, little use f...

ABOUT COLLEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 15 May 1879

ABOUT COLLEGE. LET me premise that the following explanation is not a compliment to the reader, quite the contrary, its raison d' etre is simply this: that there are some people so destitute of intuition, so utterly and irreclaimably dull, that, if asked what our central figure was, they would, after turning it upside down and every other which way, exclaim "a horse to be sure." A horse, indeed ! Why man, a child could have told it was a pony. But to explain. It is commonly, though erroneously supposed that our old alma mater's curriculum is literally a riding school, and that she gives half-yearly opportunities to exhibit to the world in general some very fine feats of horsemanship. This idea, although erroneous, as above stated, our artist has seized and executed in his usual bold and masterly style. Cutting loose his pony, the dashing equestrian leaps upon his back and, with one bound, scrambles through the toughest (examination) paper the institution can produce. Fine, is it not...
