Carlisle Is Working Hard [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 November 1900
Carlisle Is Working Hard Thirty of the Indian football squad turned out on a muddy field Wednesday and were put through several hours' hard work by Coaches Warner and Ralston to shape them up for the coming contest with Columbia. The anxiety of the local officials over the game is becoming more manifest every day, but it is thought here that the life lately instilled into the Indians will tell. The red men have lately been working in secret on some fancy tricks, including delayed passes and a wonderful new variation of the "wing shift" play that is calculated to keep Columbia guessing. Bain's condition has improved wonderfully, and he will play right tackle in the last two games. Holly Pierce is much weaker, and could not stand practice to-day. He will be stood aside as full back in favor of, Williams, whose place as right half back will be taken by Beaver. Parker will be cut out to make room for Palmer or Simons. The first and second teams lined up this afternoon, after hard work a...

Cane Spree [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 November 1900
Cane Spree Those of the Science Freshmen who have been training regularly for the coming cane-spree are rapidly becoming adepts in that line under the skilful direction of Instructor Bojus. But thus far, only nine men have come out for the spree, and it is plainly evident that the Freshman Science class stands greatly in need of more candidates. The old University book-store, adjacent to the gymnasium, has been fitted up with large mats especially for the contestants, and any one wishing to try for the spree will find Mr. Bojus or one of the committee there to assist. The hours for the 1904 Science men are from 11.30 to 12.30 every Tuesday and Thursday morning, and from 10 to 12 on Saturdays. A challenge has been sent to the Sophomore CaneSpree Committee, and the matter of arranging dates and such business will be decided later. The canespree trials, at which the representatives of the class will be chosen, will probably come off a week or so before the final event. It is earnestly ...
