Cane Spree Preparations [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 November 1900
Cane Spree Preparations For the past two weeks matters have been progressing smoothly regarding the Freshmen Science cane spree, although as yet only nine men have come out for it regularly. A committee of three, consisting of C. Schur, Jr., chairman, L. Kebler and H. I. Benjamin was appointed some time ago, and since that time one of the three has always been on hand at the Gymnasium to help novices in every possible way. Instructor Bojus has shown a deep interest in the work done by the Freshmen, and has been of considerable service to all the candidates. No fixed date for the coming tussle between the Freshmen and Sophomores has been decided upon, but it is almost certain that that interesting event will take place during the first week in December. The following Science men have come out for the spree: Lightweight: Day, Benjamin, Tettley, Schur, Kebler and Tyler; middleweight, Stow and Walheim; heavyweight, Stangland.

LACROSSE TEAM Prospects Good— Regular Practice-Many Candidates Out— Candidates Will Go in Training Next February. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 November 1900
LACROSSE TEAM Prospects Good— Regular PracticeMany Candidates Out— Candidates Will Go in Training Next February. The Lacrosse Team has been practicing regularly twice a week for the past three weeks in South I' ield. The condition of the candidates is surprisingly good for so early in the year. Even at this early date improvement is noticeable in some of last year's Varsity men, while others will have to work hard in order to make the team as we have some very promising new candidates who are going to give them a hard tussle. Over forty men have signified their intention of coming out for the team this year. Last Friday only twenty-six men were on the field, and it is from these men that the two piactice teams will be chosen. The prospects were never better for a successful season as we havean abundance of good men from among whom we can pick a team to fittingly represent Columbia in lacrosse for the season of 1901. What we now ask for is the support of the student body. We wish to ...
The Tory's Guest by Victor Mapes, '91 Successfully Produced [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 November 1900
The Tory's Guest by Victor Mapes, '91 Successfully Produced "The Tory's Guest," a Colonial drama by Victor Mapes, '9l, was successfully produced by the Sargent Dramatic School at the Empire Theater on Thursday, November 8. In fact, it was so successful that it would not be surprising to see it produced by a professional company before the season ends. Successful dramatists nowadays are like children; they often dress old dolls in new "clothes. It matters little that the plot of "The Tory's Guest" dealt with the old problem of two brothers who had not seen each other since their early youth. In fact, the plot was rather commonplace, but Mr. Mapes has succeeded in working many of the situations up to a very dramatic pitch. The characters were well drawn and, on the whole, well interpreted bv the pupils of the school. As the play now stands, however, it is very much superior to "Richard Carvel" or the "Pride of Jennico." We quote the following from the COLUMBIA SPECTATOR of June, '95, ...
Intercollegiate Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 November 1900
Intercollegiate Notes In the dual meet with Harvard and in the Mott Haven games last year Yale was lamentably weak in the jumps, but judging from the records made by J. S. Spraker, 1903 L. S., no fear need be entertained in regard to this event next spring. Spraker has able substitutes in the high jump in D. W. Franchot, 1903 S., and G. F. Victor, 1904. Of last year's point winners, Yale suffers a severe loss in Captain Johnson, 1900, who could always be depended upon to win first place in the pole vault, and also W. M. Adriance, 1900. J. H. Hord, 1901, has a good record in this event and should be sure of points next spring. Penny, Rudcl, and Van Kirk are promising men. In the 100- and 220-yard dashes, Yale will lose Richards, who won his event last year in the Yale-Harvard dual meet. Blount also graduated, but Dupee is still in college. Promising men are Hunter, Gratf, Hargrave, Wilson* Lilley, and Arnstein. Boardman ought to be a winner in the 220 with Hargrave a close second. In...
Golf Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 November 1900
Golf Notes In the match with the Wee Burn Club at Noroton on Saturday, the Golf Team was defeated by the score of 31 to 13. The playing of the majority of the team was very satisfactory, the high score our opponents being due to the poor work of three of our team. Edwards lost five or six holes on the greens, which were- very fast and for the most part sloping. Burrell was badly off in his driving, while Rhoades' opponent was making the course in very good figures. For Columbia the best score was made by Boardman, although Glenney, playing in second place, won the largest number of holes. The playing of Bissell, Jackson, McClure and Raisbeck, who were on the team for the first time, showed that they were entitled to the places which they held. The summary of the match is as follows : Wee Burn. C. H. Seely 8 I G. Hecker o F. Hecker o B. B. Brown, Jr 10 George Jenkins o H. L. Williams ' 1 A. S. Pitt o W. L. Baldwin 10 f. T. Williams 2 W. R.

There are now about twenty-five or thirty candidates enrolled.

Training will be insisted upon, also, as being a necessary condition of a good team. Application has been made for membership in the Amateur Hockey League. The team will thereby enjoy the advantages of practice against the best teams in New York, which should help materially in the Intercollegiate series.

Pennsylvania Track Team [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 November 1900
Pennsylvania Track Team With the design of producing new men for next year to take the place of the old point winners who were graduated last spring, the Committee of Track Athletics at University of Pennsylvania has just announced an elaborate plan of winter athletics. It is proposed this year to give unusual attention to cross-country athletics with a view to bringing out new longdistance men. All the men in the various athletic departments of the University will be asked to take part in this exercise in order to fit them for the regular winter's work in the gymnasium. The committee has arranged to have two sets of games this fall. The novice games took place successfully on Franklin Field last Friday, the 9th, and next Saturday the regular fall championship games will be held. In each set of games medals will be awarded to the winners of first and second place in each event. Another rule provides that "those who qualify for an event in the preliminary heats and do not win a medal...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 November 1900
The rapidly approaching occasion on which we shall see the next story of University Hall completed will open many possibilities to Columbia for further enlargement and progress in scholastic and social lines. It will give impetus not only to oratory and debating but to the scientific exposition of subjects in which the specialists in any department of University life and work may be interested. The large hall in the centre of the new building will serve as the haven for all these activities and give to them a fitting home. But there is a circumstance which is connected with the present system which cannot but fill the students with dismay. That is the fact that the new building is not to be completed at once after all but is only to be roofed over with a temporary covering of tar and peebles where the Freshman for many years to come will see rising above an otherwise magnificent structure the black lines of the power-house chimney though he may not essay again to climb it as did his...
Correspondence [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 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 ivlio wish their correspondence published anonymously, must attach their own signature. Unsigned letters will receive no attention. To the Editor of the SPECTATOR: The demand for a complete and good translation of Balzac's works, to be supplied by the University Library, seems to be universal among students of literature who are not able to read French, and who l will always necessarily form a large class. Permit me to call your attention to this fact, and to request you, in behalf of a large number of my fellow-students, to bring the subject before the proper authorities. S. P. L. New York, Nov. 2, 1900. In a busy age like the present, when so much is required of a man, when his time and energy are taxed to the uttermost, the need of an easy and expeditious method of writing, one enabling the pen to keep pace with the rapid conception of tho...
