Freshman Crew [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 November 1900
Freshman Crew On Monday afternoon three eights were out on the Hudson in papiermache shells. The river was somewhat rough, during the latter part of the afternoon, which necessitated rowing under difficulties, but, nevertheless, the crews were able to do a good afternoon's work, accompanied by Hanlan who coached each boat in turn. Captain E. Updike, of the 1904 College eight, had his men in the shell early in the afternoon and shortly afterwards Captain W. Earle of the 1904 Science eight went out with his crew. Lastly, the Sophomore eight, with V. Earle as captain, emerged from the boathouse at 5.15 and went for a long row down the river. The moon was out in all its glory and the light it afforded helped the coxswains of the various crews considerably. The Science eight rowed as far as 160 th street, now and then pausing to rest; but on the homeward trip—a distance of two miles and a quarter, against the current —they did not cease rowing until they had reached the boat house. Rumor...

University Hall [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 November 1900
University Hall Work on the new story of University Hall has been interrupted for some time by delays in filling orders for the iron work. The mason work has been practically completed and the building is ready for its temporary toof. This will be built of wooden trusses; but iron knees and tie-rods will be used. The impossibility of procuring these pieces has caused the delay ; but the prospect is that they will be ready in two weeks at the latest As soon as the material is on hand a large gang of men will be put to work, so that the roof will, in all probability, be completed before the first snow. It is difficult to tell how long it will take to finish the interior, but the structure will surely be ready by commence-
YALE CREW PROSPECTS [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 November 1900
YALE CREW PROSPECTS Outlook for Next Spring Based on the Work Done This Fall. The fall work on the harbor has now been going on for over a month and in this time the chances for a winning crew next spring have brightened considerably. When the candidates were called out the squad consisted largely of men who had never rowed before, but their development in this short time has been so rapid that a number of them are considered as very promising candidates for the University crew. Every afternon two crews are formed from the University squad and sent on spins varying from two to four miles. This work will be kept up until bad weather sets in, in order to make the interval between the fall work and the work in the tank as short as possible. The winter training will commence about February in the tank, when all men who intend to try for the University crew will be called out. They will then be coached by members of last year's crew and four oar until the weather admits of outdoor practi...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 November 1900
A paean of praise for the victors and a word for the woe of the fallen! We have met the men from Nassau and the victory is ours. Not without a struggle —but a struggle that serves only to make sweeter the fruits of triumph. This last achievement is a fitting sequel to the Yale game and stamps Columbia at once as the equal of the best college elevens in the land. We have with us in the results of these two games a sense of our own powers and a surety of our own position which no future defeat can disturb. Tuesday's game can leave no doubt in the minds of Columbia men of the existence of a grit and spirit in the eleven which will never down. The story of Election Day, 1900, is one that will be told with pride by Columbia generations in the bright days ahead. It does one good to see two teams supported by such fine cheering as resounded over Columbia Field last Tuesday; and were it necessary to go outside of ourownUniversity to find an example of college spirit we should point to the l...

LAW REVIEW Editorial Board Is Complete—Distinguished Contributors for the First Issue. Several members of the Class of 1900 Law, while in their second year at College, organized a society for the purpose of holding lectures and reading essays on law subjects, and ultimately to found a paper.

Last year the following five men were elected to carry on the work of publishing the paper which is to be known as the Columbia Law Review: John M. Woolsey, Forsyth Wickes, Herman F. Robinson, Beverley R. Robinson and Joseph E. Corrigan. These men consulted with the members of the Faculty and found them heartily in favor of the project. Five additional men were selected from the present third-year class, namely, Harold Walker, George Schreiber, C. Boardman Tyler, Burton Wilson and Louis S. Levy. The original society has ceased to exist and the management of the paper will be wholly in the hands of the Board of Editors...
Philolexian Society [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 9 November 1900
Philolexian Society Philolexian Debating Society held its regular Wednesday evening meeting this week. The attendance was smaller than usual, a fact due doubtless to the stress of events of the day before. Extempore speeches were made by W. E. Baird, 'O2 L., and W. F. Beers, 'Ol, the former speaking upon "The Reorganization of the Democratic Party." Mr. Beers was one of those who experienced the horrors of the recent Galveston disaster and he talked at some length upon this topic. His remarks were graphic and interesting, and he was generously applauded when he had finished. The debate was upon the question: " Resolved,, That the metric system should be declared, after &amp; period of five years, to be the only legal system of weights-and measures in the United States." The affirmative was supported by W. T. Heimann, 'Ol, and H. W. Pitkin, 'O3 L.; the negative by J. W. Williams, 'O2, and G. H. Butler, 'O3. Although the question was not an attractive one, the speakers managed...
