Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1880
Current Topics. T~E had expected to welcome our readers in Mr. Goodwin's old room, and to have placed on file there the best of our exchanges. But, since the publication of our last issue, the Trustees have decided not to grant us this privilege, but to convert this room together with Mr. Ashmore's into a gymnasium. No one advocates the establishment of a gymnasium more heartily than do the editors of THE SPECTATOR, but it seems hardly reasonable that, with four rooms still unoccupied, the College Papers should still continue in the cellar where they now have their offices. We trust, however, that in time we may be more advantageously situated. 'THE joint debate between the Peithologian and Barnard Societies, which took place on the last day before Christmas holidays, was quite well attended, and shows that more interest is being taken in the literary societies of the college than heretofore. The exercises were extremely creditable to all engaged in them, and show that the literary ...
Hal's Bath. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1880
Hal's Bath. r J A HE other evening I strolled in to see Jack Harris, and found him busily engaged in concocting something over the fire. "Well, old fellow," said he, "you're just in time. I was making a Welsh rarebit in honor of Twelfth Night, and to celebrate the fact that I have not yet returned to college. I could not make up my mind to give up my holiday just yet. Sit down, and I'll brew a punch." While he was busy in these preparations, I opened a photograph album which lay on the table and began to glance over the pictures. I presently came across one of a very pretty girl, whose face looked familiar, but whose name I could not recall. Turning to Jack, I asked who the fair charmer might be. " Ah," he replied, as he poured the rarebit over a piece of toast, " that is Nellie Herbert, whom I met this summer at a little place on the coast of Maine, where I was staying with Hal Kirkwood and his family, who are her cousins. By the way, I got the best grind on Hal one day, by persona...
"Heart Wounds." A REPLY TO H. R. H. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1880
"Heart Wounds." A REPLY TO H. R. H. THERE'S many a sea-girt rock Shaped by the fickle sea, Whose sides and hue are servile to Each touch of its water free. The crowded clouds give battle fierce ; Their weapons of hail and rain Provoke the sea to hurl its weight 'Gainst the rock in the angry main. The storm retreats, and leaves the rock Scathed as 'twas ne'er before ; With sides so worn, and hue so changed, Though with stanchness the blast it bore. The soft seas lap, and woo the rock With kisses, they linger and brood, They'd wipe away the seams so deep Made in their fearful mood. Deep anguish of sorrow may deepen Sad thoughts in the stoutest soul, But in time, as the waves grow weary, So painless the years may roll. Love's joys divinely can draw A traceiy over the heart To soften and hide from its owner, Deep wounds that can cease to smart. PAPILLON.
The Joint Debate. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1880
The Joint Debate. ,r Joint Debate between the Peithologian and Barnard societies, which was held on Dec. 19th, in the chapel, was attended by about a hundred students, and was, oratorically, the best that has yet taken place. The exercises were opened by Mr. H. Coghill, 'BO, of Peithologia, who read an essay on " Our Treatment of the Negro." Mr. F. D. Philips, 'BO, of the Barnard, was to have delivered an oration on " The Battle of the Beda," but owing to sickness he was unable to be present, and Mr. E. T. Stuart, 'Bl, read the oration instead. The question for debate was : " Resolved , That Free Trade is more advantageous to the United States than Protection." Mr. E. S. Porter, Jr., 'BO, opened the debate for the Barnard in a good solid style, though he was not always so clear as might have been wished. He was followed by Mr. C. M. Roome, 'BO, who opened on the negative for Peithologia. Mr. Roome made a very neat speech, with well rounded periods, but did not take a very firm hold ...

"But I o'er slept me, Naught could have kept me From coming here. Mine's not a cold love, But I got hold of 'Most too much beer." PHILLIS. " Though you're behind time, I'm glad you could find time To come at all : Your arm my waist around, Off, on the cold, damp ground I ne'er can fall." * * * * Now sounds a creaking, Now, a loud shrieking, And a dull thud, Crash ! —and the lovers lie, 'Neath the clear, starry sky, Flat in the mud.

A Reminiscence. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1880
A Reminiscence. YOU knew Jones, Bill Jones, of 'BO, Who left in Junior year, And a better fellow never went to Fritz's for his beer, Or presided at the Burial, or pulled bow oar on the crew, Or got more notice from the snab along Fifth Avenue. Of course you heard how it happened ; I remember just as well—'Twas that day last semi-annuals when you stole the chapel bell. He came, strolling up the campus, and drew me aside with —" Dan, [ust look here at this arrangement, won't it yank the bun, old man!'' Well, it was a pretty crib, Tom, Of the good old-fashioned kind, Double-barreled, microscopic, and revolving, all combined; It was just five yards in length when the thing was all unrolled, And, I tell you, Jones felt confident he had that ex.down cold. We'd been grinding just one hour. I'd been watching Jones, you see, For he'd promised that when he got through he'd pass his crib to me ; When I noticed Tutor Jenkins, sort of edging up the aisle, And his eye was fixed on Billy, with a c...
About College. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1880
About College. freshmen have chosen as their motto, ycyvuaxLjfted-a epyoig. A. V. W. JACKSON has been elected Historian of the freshman class. STEVEN can not be reconciled to giving up his whistle, and still blows in spite of the electric bells in Anthon. CONOVER, 'BO, and Morgan, 'BO, have been selected as delegates to the Convention of the In-ter-Collegiate Athletic Association. THE Semi-Annual will be held on February 6th, at the Academy of Music. The tax has been fixed at $5.00, and it is hoped that the various committees will get to work promptly, that the necessary amount may be raised in time. THE Bicycle Club held a meeting in Prof. Smith's room on Jan. 6th, and elected the following members : Bates, 'BO, Newbrough, 'BO, Taylor, 'Bl, Travers, 'B2, and F. White, 'B3. Messrs. B. P. Clark, 'B2, and Burrill, 'B2, were appointed guides. A MASS MEETING of the students held on Jan., 7th, to form an association for the furthering of the foot-ball interests, resulted in the election ...
School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1880
School of Mines. HE "Reception" was held on Friday evening, Dec. 19th, and was a very enjoyable affair. The rooms were decorated with the banners, and blue and white streamers of the boat club, and reflected considerable credit on Mr. Wall. The attendance was sufficient to fill the rooms comfortably, and comprised many of the elite of New York and Brooklyn. The supper served by Mr. Wall, in Prof. Trowbridge's room, was prepared in fine style. Notwithstanding the opposition, the reception was a grand success, and the committee deserve the thanks of every " Miner " for carrying the affair through so well and utterly defeating the schemes of the college "nihilist." The committee was as follows : W. H. Cooper, Chairman; O. V. Dougherty, H. Emerson, E. Octaviano, W. L. Dusenberry and Geo. E. Wood. THE completion of the New Building during the recess enabled the professors of mathematics to have more light and room for the demonstration of the science. We shall hereafter be able to see so...
School of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1880
School of Law. HHHE meeting called to discuss the advisability of adopting a Law School Pin, to which we adverted in the last number, was duly organized, the students being present to the number of about thirty, of whom three were zealous advocates of the pin, one, the chairman, another, the secretary, while the third acted as standardbearer on the floor, to maintain the integrity of the pin men against all comers. The secretary opened the ball by a speech which was something i of a flower garden, and in which he addressed his hearers as " Fellow Columbians," urging upon them the great advantages of having a distinctive badge, and citing the caps worn in the English Universities as a notable example. He closed his speech by a motion to adopt a badge. It was then moved as an amendment, that the example of the English Universities be more closely followed, by adopting a Law School cap. Blue and white silk in quarters was suggested, and the proposition was commended on the ground that ...
The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1880
The College World. AMHERST : The seniors this term are allowed to choose two of the three required studies, and select a "general optional." The gymnasium exhibition will be somewhat different from former years. Each class will have the same order of marching, so that no one class may be credited with better manoeuvering. The first choice from the Seniors to Phi Beta Kappa was made Wednesday. The following gentlemen were chosen : Alden, Banta, E. W. Berries, Bliss, Clarke, Gaylord, Howe, Kellogg, Lane, Morse, Rogers, Rolfe, Sears, Strong and Warren. A B ov'Ay has been formed with Prof. Tyler, and has read six books of the Iliad at sight. HARVARD : Harvard rejoices in a four paged daily called " The Echo." The new gymnasium has been supplied with eight more hydraulic rowing machines, and the Rifle Corps has transferred there its entire equipment. The Yale-Harvard boat race will take place on July 2d, this year, instead of on the last Friday in June, on account of the late date of Com...
Our Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 13 January 1880
Our Exchanges. \ NEW exchange, The Haverfordian , has come to hand, and impressed us very favorably. The paper is well printed, and contains excellent reading matter. The name is rather too much of the double-barrelled order, but, of course, that is a question of taste. For a new paper, The Haverfordicin is a most creditable production. THE Harvard Echo comes to us bright and newsy, as, of course, a daily must be if success is looked for. The editorials are good in tone and not wanting in the great element of " back-bone." We wish the new enterprise success. THE college papers, at our time of writing, have not commenced to pour in to any great extent, so we must hunt up our files for numbers issued previous to the holidays. THE Yale Record, of December 13th, backs up their delegates in refusing to sign the constitution of the Base Ball Convention, owing to the fact that Richmond, of Brown, a professional, will be allowed to play this coming season. The Record takes a right stand in ...
