Correspondence [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 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 who wish their correspondence published anonymously, must attach their own signature. Unsigned letters will receive no attention. COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY, NEW YORK. Nov. 19, 1900. To the Editor of THE SPECTATOR: While not agreeing with those who censure our able Librarian, I venture modestly to call the attention of the proper authorities to the fact that many works essential to the shelves of a college reference library are not now to be found in the reading room. It is difficult to understand the introduction of less generally used books to the exclusion not only of the Teubner series of Greek and Latin authors, which surely find sufficient use to justify their presence, but also of many volumes which every student desires to have at his immediate command. I fear that the Librarian will incur the eternal opprobrium of the entire student body, i...

Columbia Sophomore Killed [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 November 1900
Columbia Sophomore Killed Paul Francis Fusz, a student in mining engineering at Columbia, and living here at 210 West 127 th street, was found dead in bed Saturday morning, having been asphyxiated by gas some time during the night. James Cottrell, proprietor of the house where Fusz boarded, noticing that Fusz did not appear at the usual time, went to his room and receiving 110 response he broke in the door. The room was filled with gas and Fusz was lying on the bed, apparently unconscious. A trained nurse living in the house was summoned, and tried to induce artificial respiration. Two neighboring physicians who were called in, however, said that Fusz had been dead for some time. His death seems to have been accidental. It appears that on the previous evening, when Fusz retired about 10 o'clock he hung his coat on the gas bracket at one side of the room, and in so doing accidentally turned on the stop cock. A rubber tube connected the gas jet with a student's lamp on a table a few f...
Hockey [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 November 1900
Hockey The practise at the rink now occurs regularly on Wednesday at 5.15 P.M. and Saturday at 7.30 P.M. About thirty men have turned out so far, and more 'are expected. It is most important that candidates attend every practice, as the men are being grounded in a few principles that are to be the basis of this year's play. Individual starring is to be done away with entirely, adhering strictly to team work. The forwards are to be on the move from start to finish, and in consequence of this the men are expected to give up smoking and drinking entirely, and all rich food. As no watch can be kept over the training, each man is put upon his honor to carry out these instructions honestly, for upon it depends the success of the season. All candidates who have not, thus far, reported for practice, should do so Wednesday evening. Of those who have turned up, so far, the following will report next Wednesday evening:, at 5.15 P.M.: S. Brown, D. Hudson, C. Barbow, D. Holmes, A. J. Akin, A. Wo...

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 November 1900
"Dr. Low's young men are improving" to use the words of the distinguished editorial writer in the Evening Sun. He has probably noticed that Columbia calendars and sofa cushions are now being sold in the department stores. The College numbers at present over four hundred men. There would be a total collapse of our collegiate cottage should all these men assemble in the building at once. We do not need South Field the less but College Hall the more. One man out of a hundred was a common saying at Princeton on the day after the recent game with the Tigers. Betting is bad business —except when you bet on Columbia. On Saturday the football eleven added another to its string of victories by vanquishing the strong Annapolis eleven. There is but one more game to be played, and a victory in that will complete what has been a magnificent season of football for Columbia. We must realize, however, that this last victory is not to be gained without a struggle, and only the most persistent kind o...

Intercollegiate Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 20 November 1900
Intercollegiate Notes The new gymnasium which will probably be constructed at Princeton this winter will take the place of the present gymnasium and casino, which building is inadequate to the present demands, and has been for several years. The plan for the new building is in the hands of a committee which has Prof. William Libby as its president. The committee of 100, which will collect the money necessary for the erection of the building, includes both students and alumni. Its chairman is James Laughlin of the class of 1868. The members of the Yale Dramatic Association are working steadily upon their play, "The Fair Maid of the West," and are doing all in their power to insure good results. The men who may take part in the final production have been divided into three casts, all working on this play. This system allows every man to demonstrate his ability, and insures a complete list of capable understudies. It also makes the competition more just to those taking part in it and m...
