Anderson Collection. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
Anderson Collection. 'X'HE November meeting of the Board of A Trustees, was held at the College on the 3d of the month. A part of the business transacted at this first meeting in the new building was the acceptance, on behalf of the College, of the "Anderson Collection " of books, presented by the Alumni. This is a good omen, and is significant, we hope, of a livelier interest, on the part of the graduates, in the progress and enlargement of Columbia in all her departments. The following letter, prepared by Judge Mitchell, of the Committee of Alumni, was presented to the Trustees by President Barnard : "To the Trustees of Columbia College : The Committee appointed by the Association of the Alumni of Columbia College, have the pleasure of herewith presenting, on behalf of said Association and of the Alumni, to Columbia College, for its acceptance, the mathematical and scientific part of the library of the late Henry J. Anderson. Doctor Anderson was appointed Professor of Mathematics ...
"Last Night." A CO-EDUCATION TALE. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
"Last Night." A CO-EDUCATION TALE. COME, Alec, old man, what's the matter ? Why to-day did you flunk at the board ? You, who always loved " radical axes," On this, your crack subject, were floored. The whole section seemed greatly astonished That the " King of Co-ordinates " should miss ; All the snab threw soft glances toward you, And all the men envied you this : I happened to look on my right hand— And saw Violet cle Lacey blush red When she knew what it was that I noticed, Hide her hand, and hang down her sweet head. Now, Alec, though not given to prying, My breath it quite took, I confess, When I saw, on her tapering fingers, The ring you said that no girl should possess. Come, come, Alec, tell me your story ; I know that some mysteries here lurk. What happened last night at the Hastings, That to-day made you fail in your work ? Has Violet been quoting aesthetics, Or of Emerson yard upon yard, Or dropping the " sweet pearls " from Ruskin ? I should smile ! Were you taken off yo...
Four of a Kind. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
Four of a Kind. CHE was a simple village maiden. WE were four collegians, in various stages of development. Will was a senior ; that is, he called himself a senior. Really, he was in that chrysalis state in which, after having thrown off the frivolities of juniorhood, a beneficent faculty ordains that a man must spend three months before assuming the dignity of seniority. So was I a junior, and George a sophomore ; Bert was still an embryo; he had not yet matriculated ; he liked to think himself a collegian, but never dared to advance any opinions on the subject. When I arrived in Peaseville in July, I found Will regularly installed as Ella's (her name was Ella) acknowledged beau ; at least, four evenings a week found him by her side ; it might be in the cosy little parlor, or perhaps driving in the moonlight, or, yet again, wandering through some leafy lanes —I never struck any leafy lanes in the neighborhood, myself, but then it looks so well in print that perhaps Will did. Upon h...
Fifteenth Field Meeting. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
Fifteenth Field Meeting. A VERY successful meeting, was the unanimous opinion of all present, and one that presented a most favorable comparison with the Handicap Games last autumn. The management was prompt and excellent, and the records made in the several events were really very good. Several new men were brought forward, and a marked improvement in the speed of our older athletes was to be observed. The disqualification of Mr. Rawson in the 100 yds. dash was an unfortunate necessity. Mr. J. S. Voorhees, S. of L., in the Running Broad Jump, accomplished a Best on Record, clearing 21ft. \V% in., according to the National Association rules, and 21ft. BXin. by Inter-Collegiate. We would also commend the performances of Case, 'B3, in the Mile Walk ; of Travers, 'B2, Bissell, 'BO, and Combes, 'Bl, in the Quarter ; of Eldridge, 'B3, in the 220 yds ; of Taylor, in the Half ; of Sayre, in the Mile ; and especially the fine throwing of J. T. Bush, in the Hammer, who succeeded in beating t...
The Reason Why and Comments Thereon. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
The Reason Why and Comments Thereon. From The Yale Courant of Nov. Bth, 1879. a A RRANGEMENTS had been made with Columbia for a match game last Tuesday, but our accommodating faculty forbid the playing of the game, and thus prevented a match that would have given us the best practice and the best preparations for this afternoon's game. Under these circumstances, will it be wondered at if we are beaten ? We admit that we came here to get an education, and not to play football ; we admit that we came here to cultivate our brain rather than our muscle ; but will our faculty ever arrive at a proper appreciation of the advantages attending the college that is ahead in athletics, or will they ever recognize the fact that, in the stern battle of life, a good physique is as requisite as a well-stored brain ? The victories of Cornell, at Saratoga, did as much to insure the success of that college, as did the perseverance and good sense of its president and instructors. Perhaps Yale does not ...
About College. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
About College. HE freshmen came out ahead in the games, A taking five first prizes. AT a recent meeting of the Athletic Association, Messrs. F. G. Janssen and G. H. Taylor were elected in place of Messrs. F. A. Potts, Jr., and W. J. U. Roberts, resigned. PHILOLEX. has challenged both Peitholog. and Barnard to a ioint debate. THE foot-ball match with Yale, on election day, did not take place, as it was forbidden by the New Haven faculty. SINCE the Boat Club meeting, the University crew have re-elected Charles Eldredge, School of Medicine, to the position of Captain. THE per cent, required in the mathematics of freshman and sophomore year has been raised 1 2 A io for the former, and 6% % for the latter. There once was a freshman quite meek, Who vowed he would not study Greek, So he scraped up some money And purchased a pony, Which he exercised three times a week. THE crew will soon commence work at Wood's gymnasium. Those who expect places on the eight had better set to work in earnes...
IN MEMORIAM [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
IN MEMORIAM lt has pleased our all-wise Father in Heaven to remove, by a sudden death, our friend and associate, FRANK FRAZIER NADAL, we, the members of the Columbian Peithologian Society, unanimously adopt the following resolutions, as a sincere but feeble tribute to our lamented and beloved companion : Resolved , That while we gratefully acknowledge the kindness of Him who has so seldom permitted our ranks to be broken, we mourn the loss of a faithful student, a loyal and devoted friend. Resolved , That in this, our common bereavement, we desire to express our sincere sorrow and sympathy to his family and friends. Resolved , That a copy of these resolutions be published in the College Papers, and in the Columbiad of 1881. C. M. ROOME, HOWARD COGHILL, Oct. 17th, 1879. J. FEWIS SMITH, JR. Committee.
The Regatta. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
The Regatta. C ATURDAY, November ist, was very windy, and when the fair visitors, who came to cheer on Columbia's oarsmen, assembled at Mott Haven, they found their wraps most welcome, and the majority of them sought shelter inside the boat-house, from whose ample windows a splendid view can be had of the whole course. The only event which marred the pleasure of the day was the fact that someone, who is as yet unknown, entered the dressing-room during the class race, and finding some of the lockers open, stole four watches, one of them a particularly valuable one, besides some other small articles. It should be a lesson to the men not to leave anything unlocked, and it is to be hoped that the thief may be discovered. The first race was for singles, and was won by F. Draper, 'BO, from W. W. Russel, 'B3, S. of M. Draper had things all his own way, as Russel only went in to make a race. The time was somewhat slow, owing to the roughness of the water, being 7 minutes 24 seconds. The nex...
School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
School of Mines. IV/T R. HUTTON proposes to meet the Civil Engineers of 'Bl on Saturday mornings, for the purpose of instructing them in practical machinery. All who can attend will doubtless be glad to embrace the opportunity to perfect themselves in this very important branch of Mechanical Engineering. The meeting will take place in the former "boiler-room," which has been converted into a machine shop. AT the regular meeting of the Engineering Society, on Friday evening, Nov. 7th., two very interesting papers were read, one by W. B. Kunhardt, on " Silver Islet," and one by G. H. Singer, on "The Edgar Thompson Steel Works, at Pittsburg." THE next meeting of the Chemical Society will be held on Thursday, Nov. 20th. The week of meeting being changed so that the meetings shall not take place in the week in which the Engineering Society meets. MR. PITKIN, of 'Bl, read a paper on the " Formation of Compound Platinates, and a new Pla-tino-potassium Salt," before the American Chemical So...
School of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
School of Law. A SENIOR, apparently serenely oblivious of the "give away," has posted on the bulletin board a notice offering for sale a set of junior text books " very little used." THE rumor in circulation to the effect that the Law School will be removed to the College Buildings, in Forty-ninth street, next January, is, we are informed, unfounded. IN a recent moot court trial one of the disputants closed his argument in a way that, to say the least, was novel, and which ran something in this wise: "From what I have said, your Honor, the law, in this case, appears to be about all on our side, and if it does not so appear, it is the fault, not of the lav/, but of a feeble interpretation." Another stated what he alleged to be a legal maxim, as follows : " When one of two innocent parties must suffer, the culpable one must bear the loss." IT has not yet become the general practice to appear at the evening criminal law lectures in full dress, though two or three gentlemen have honored...
The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
The College World. DARTMOUTH: — Moore, 'Bl, is Managing Editor of the Aegis, which publication will be shortly issued. The Boating Association has been revived, and Thayer, 'BO, was elected President, and four men were chosen for the crew. The following are the principal records made, and names of winners in the Fall sports : 100 yds. Dash : —Sloane, 'BO, n sec. Half-Mile Run : —Parker, 'B2, 2 min., 12 A sec. 220 yds.

HARVARD : The Foot-ball Team, this year, under Captain Bacon's efficient management, has practised well and faithfully, as the result of the Canada matches serves to prove. The new men are Nickerson and Tebbets, 'BO, Cabot, 'B3, and Shattuck, S. of L. Bacon's general play, and Winsor's drop-kicks, were very justly praised by the Montreal papers, which criticise the whole team very favorably. The...
The Library. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
The Library. T T ARPER &amp; BROTHERS have just published a " Latin English Dictionary," edited by Charlton T. Lewis and Dr. Charles Short. The work is based on the translation of Freund's Latin Dictionary, edited by the late Dr. Andrews, but has been enlarged and rewritten to so great an extent as to be substantially a new work. Dr. Freund, some time ago, corrected the original version, and supplied some two thousand ad- ditions, but the advances made in the science of language have rendered the work of Dr. Freund capable of receiving many alterations and additions, which have been made by the present editors. All students who desire to get the deepest insight into the niceties of the Latin tongue will do well to procure this lexicon, as it is the best one published up to the present time. Royal Bvo., 2033 pp. Price, in boards, uncut, $8.50 ; full sheep, $9.50 ; half leather, $10.50 ; full Russia, $12.50.
Our Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
Our Exchanges. I HE Yale Literary Magazine for October has an excellent and well-written article for its leader, entitled, "Result —Disillusionment." To our minds, it is the best article of a number not quite so solid as usual. We quote the two opening sentences : " If we seek to express by a word the sum total of the effects upon us of the various factors that have entered into our college life, that word is disillusionment. It is not too much to say that most of us, certainly, came here with heads filled with extravagant ideas, false notions, and crude theories of one sort or another, and that much of our life since, especially the first two years, has been but to experience the almost daily destruction of one or more of those immature conceptions." One thing we have always admired the Lit. for, is, that in the wordy warfare between Yale and sister colleges, its editors do not condescend to abuse as a means of criticism. In this connection, we wish to remind our friends at Yale th...
Foot Ball. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
Foot Ball. PRINCETON VS. COLUMBIA. two substitutes, on Saturday, Nov. i st, we met Princeton on her own grounds, and, owing to too much generosity from our side, with her own referee, F. Landon, 'Bl. We refrain from any extended account, owing to the full description in the last number of our contemporary. We must urge our men to be quicker in returning to their positions. The three touch-downs by Princeton were obtained as follows : ist. After Farr, of Princeton, had been knocked senseless by one of our rushers, and while our mm were helping to carry him off the field, Princeton made a touch-down, the referee failing to call " time " until a Princeton man had crossed the goal line. 2d. After a foul had occurred in front of our goal, a Princeton man secured the second. The referee first called it a foul, then, after being talked to by Capt. Ballard, gave it to Princeton. At the conclusion of the game he had again changed his mind, and said that it really was a foul. 3d. Obtained two...
Shavings. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 14 November 1879
Shavings. ' I "HERE is a patient in one of our city hospitals whose past history is an enigma to the physicians. When in his delirium he constantly calls out, "Next ! next." Some think he was a college professor, but others say he must have been a barber. CO-EDUCATION. He rang the bell ; a young lady appeared, of whom he very anxiously inquired, "'Do you want a room-mate ?" He told the boys, afterwards, that he may have been excited, but did not know why she shut the door in his face with such force. THE TOCSIN OF THE SOUL THE DINNER-BELL. Between Quinn, McAllister, Harcom, Kelly, and Dooker, the issue was extremely doubtful, until the string indicated a height of sft. After this, all retired but Harcom, who tied at sft. 3m. As the dinner-hell interfered to prevent the continuance of the struggle , the prize—a handsome pocket knife —was accorded by lot to Mr. Harcom. — Niagara Index.
