Football Practice [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 November 1900
Football Practice The football team meets the Navel Cadets at Annapolis to-morrow. The practice of the past' week has been of a nature to justify the belief that Columbia will score a victory with considerable to spare. Sanford has given die eleven no let-up in hard work and there seems to be no likelihood of any man suffering from poor condition. On Monday, the day of the return from Buffalo, the work was light. Many of the regulars did not take part in the lineup with the scrub. Cofrin, who has heretofore piayed substitute tackle, was given a trial at fullback and made a favorable showing. Sanford gave him instructions in punting and drop-kicking and thinks that -tie may be developed to fill this posiI'ion next year. On Tuesday steady work was resumed at Columbia field with all of the Varsity men except Berrien in the game. Berrien is having more or less trouble with his ear and may not play to-morrow. In this case his place will be filled by Holman, who occupied the position in B...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 November 1900
SPECTATOR notices with considerable pleasure that the game with Manhattan College has been cancelled by the football management and that an effort will be made to secure a game with some other eleven. The game should never have been arranged Our baseball fiascos with the same gentlemen should have acted as a deterring factor with any one who had an eye for decent and respectable amateur sport. So much for that. The striking of this game from the schedule makes it incumbent on the management to arrange another game. It can show its superiority, tact, and willingness to please both the public and the University by arranging the game in question with a reputable eleven. We must have a game if we are to treat fairly the purchasers of season tickets and satisfy all parties. As to the opponent, SPECTATOR would like to offer a suggestion to the football management, which we hope has already occurred to them. This suggestion is nothing more nor less than a game with Williams. The eleven at ...

Llewellyn Le Count, Assistant in Civil Engineering, died Thursday at his home, 495 Fourth street, Brooklyn. He was the son of Charles O. and Josephine A. Le Count, and was born at New Rochelle in 1878. He prepared for college at the Barnard School, and took a four-years' course here in civil engineering, graduating with the class of 1900. While in college he was a member of the Engineering Society and the University chorus. Last summer he was instructor at the Columbia Summer School in Geodetic Survey at Cape Cod; and later at Camp Columbia, Litchfield, Connecticut. This fall he was made assistant in the Civil Engineering Department. Two weeks ago he was stricken with typhoid, which proved fatal. To-mor-row at two o'clock the funeral will be held in New Rochelle, his former home, at St. John's Methodist Episcopal Church. The flag on the University staff is at half-mast in respect to his memory.
Correspondence [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 16 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 ivho zvish their correspondence published anonymously, must attach their own signature. Unsigned letters will receive no attention. To the Editor of SPECTATOR : "S. P. L.'s" letter in the last issue of SPECTATOR expresses the desire of a large portion of the student body. Our library is deplorably deficient in some respects. There is a notable lack of translations, which should be speedily procured. I fail to comprehend how the library of a large university can be said to be adequately equipped without translations of Balzac, Hugo, and others too numerous to mention, upon its shelves. The writings of these men of letters lose little in the translation; and it is a matter to be regretted that those whose forte is the English language should be thus deprived. I hope, dear sir, that you will urge the authorities to procure, as rapidly as possibl...
