NEW ROWING COACH [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 2 November 1900
NEW ROWING COACH Record of the Man Who Is to Train Columbia's Crews This Spring—A Victorious Exponent of His Art The engagement of Edward Hanlan, as coach for our crews, having been approved by the Faculty Committee on Athletics, it is hoped that the distinguished oarsman has now become a permanence in connection with our rowing, and that his methods will place our crews, if -not as winners, at least close up in that thrilling rush for the finish which has become the feature of the Intercollegiate Regatta. A statement of the record of the new coach is, therefore, opportune. Hanlan was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1855, and has always made his home in that city. He made his first public appearance as an oarsman at the age of sixteen, rowing bow, as an amateur, in three pair of sculls, and later winning several skiff races. In 1873, he rowed and won his first race in a single shell, capturing the championship of Toronto Bay. His first professional race was rowed in 1874, at Hamilton, O...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 2 November 1900
Since the good showing of the football team in the Yale game, the feeling that our eleven will be able to defeat Princeton on Election Day, has become .very general among the undergraduates. SPECTATOR strongly shares this feeling, but at the same time it feels that our team will not be able to come off the field victorious unless the hardest kind of practice is put in before next Tuesday. Princeton has been represented on the gridiron ever since American universities began to play football. Her ability to brace up is marvelous, and her eleven can be depended upon to put up a steady, sure and strong game. Our team, on the other hand, has only been at the game a short time, and has shown that, like every young team, it is occasionally apt to play unsteadily. However, the team proved in the Yale game that they know how to play football, and that they can play a sure, swift game. The problem is to get the team to always play this kind of a game. This can only be done by practice. The se...
Correspondence [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 2 November 1900
Correspondence While we are glad to publish any correspondence .that may be-sent us, we are not responsible for the sentiments expressed, Those zvho ivish their correspondence published anonymously, must attach their own signature. Unsigned letters will receive no attention. EDITOR SPECTATOR: We desire to call the attention of the Librarian to the fact that there is no complete translation of the novels of Honore de Balzac in the library. Within the last few years there has been such a renewal of interest in the greatest of French writers, that it is only right he should be placed within the reach of those who cannot read him in the original. There are three or four very good editions now published the Katherine Wormerley translation, the Barrie or Saintsbury editions—any one of which is excellent. Professor Trent has also a new edition of the Saintsbury text in press. We believe that this absence of a good translation of Balzac is simply an oversight, and we earnestly recommend tha...
AIR: "JOHN BROWN'S BODY." [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 2 November 1900
AIR: "JOHN BROWN'S BODY." I. Come, sons of old Columbia, and cheer our sandy team, The team that's made old Eli think she must have had a dream, To-day they'll beat the Tigers, and to-night the birds will scream That Columbia's day has come ! CHORUS: Glory, glory, for Columbia, Glory, glory, for Columbia, Glory, glory, for Columbia, This is Columbia's day! 2. They may be only two-year-olds, but still they are all right, The ends and tackles have the sand, the guards and backs the might, The Orange and the Black must fall, beneath the Blue and White, For Columbia's day has come! CHORUS: 3So loudly lift your voices, boys, and everybody sing, For Weekes, for Morley, Wright and all we'll make the welkin ring, Our team will down old Princeton, and another vict'ry bring, To Columbia's Blue and White! CHORUS: H, ' 9 3.
