Dean Hutton Speaks in Chapel [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 November 1900
Dean Hutton Speaks in Chapel On Wednesday Dean Hutton made a short address in the chapel. He spoke on the responsibilities of college men, and if a title were given his talk it would be "The College Students' Burden." He took up the subject under three heads: the moral, the spiritual, and the intellectual responsibilities. He said that the second was in the province of the religious teacher, the third was obvious, and that therefore he would talk upon the first only. His point was that the college man is open to one great temptation, that of thinking that he is entitled to the privileges which he enjoys, and that it is only right that the mass of men should be subordinate to him. Dean Hutton was of course thinking of the time when the college man, with his superior education, would have the directing of large bodies of men. He wanted to make his audience appreciate the fact that every one cannot go to college. His address appealed to every student present.
Senior Smoker [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 November 1900
Senior Smoker The Senior class in the College held an enjoyable smoker at the Tavern last night in spite of the small number of class men present. College songs were sung, the leading being done by the members of the class best adapted for such performance, owing to their connection with the Glee Club. Cheering was hearty and indiscriminate, and it was with considerable regret that the time for adournment arrived. The class of 1902 will hold a smoker to-night at the Lion Palace.
Pulling Down the Conservatory [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 November 1900
Pulling Down the Conservatory The greenhouse on the east side of the campus that has been used by the Botany Department is being torn down and the ground will be levelled and sodded. It was never ornamental, and now that the Department has transferred its collection to Bronx Park Botanical Gardens, it has ceased to be useful. Under the present arrangement the Botanical Gardens agree to supply us with all the material used in the laboratories; and only a few plants for immediate use are kept in a small glass room in the laboratory. The only drawback to the plan is the inconvenience of bringing the material so far, and if this proves a serious difficulty a small conservatory may be placed on the roof of University Hall. On the other hand, the great advantages of being able to use the splendid collection at the Gardens are obvious.
Accommodations for Yale-Harvard Game [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 November 1900
Accommodations for Yale-Harvard Game Numerous improvements are making at Yale Field to facilitate the handling of the large crowd expected at the Harvard game Saturday. The extension of the trolley by double tracks along the entire side of the Field will expedite matters by obviating the blocking of the roadway by the crowds hurrying for cars, besides putting an end to the great personal inconvenience formerly entailed by this walk. A hard dirt sidewalk will be completed by Saturday, which will extend from the exits of the Field to the steps of cars on the tracks. The roadway beyond the tracks is being hardened with crushed stone for the convenience of carriages and teams, and in all 100 men are engaged in the work of improvement. Seventy men under Captain Tripp will police the Field, the reduction of forty men from the number employed last year being considered advisable, as the facilities for taking care of the crowd are so much improved.
Hockey [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 November 1900
Hockey The form in practice of late has been very satisfactory, many of the men showing considerable speed. The candidates for "backs" are not quite up to the mark, but with a little coaching a few can be gotten into playing form. It is the wish of the captain that the instructions in regard to training will be faithfully carried out, as it is most essential that the men be in good physical condition for the success of the season. Owing to the large number of candidates, and the short time before the league opens, it is necessary to cut down the squad and get the men in playing form. The practice will be on Saturday, at 7.30 as usual, and the following men will report: S. Brown, D. Hudson, W. G. Lindsay, C. Bartow, A. J. Akin, E. A. Akin, A. Wolff, Coggeshall, O'Dwyer, S. Campbell, George, Baxter, Duden, Dana, Eyer, Becket, McKee, Von Bernuth, Benedict, E. W. Putnam, E. J. Reid.
Musical Clubs [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 November 1900
Musical Clubs The Glee and Mandolin Clubs played and sung for charity at Lyric Hall last night. They will do the same to-nigh at the University settlement in Rivington street. Saturday night the two clubs will appear at the Knickerbocker A. C. smoker. On Tuesday, December nth, the clubs give their first full concert. It will be at the Church of the Puritans in 130 th street, between Fifth and Lenox avenues. The tickets will be moderate in price, and as the concert is near the college, there should be a large attendance of Columbia men. Chas. E. Knox, 'Q2 S., is managing the concert. Tickets will be placed on sale in the lunch-room. The Banjo Club is neither as large or as good as it should be, to compare favorably with the other two clubs. More men should come out for it. The Mandolin Club is now rehearsing every Tuesday and Friday night.

English Department Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 November 1900
English Department Notes The Department of English has been strengthened this year by the return of Professor Brander Matthews from his leave of absence and by the appointment of Professor W. P. Trent to the Chair of English at Barnard. Professor Trent is giving graduate courses at Columbia in exchange for undergraduate courses given at Barnard by Professors T. R. Price and G. R. Carpenter. There has been a remarkable increase in the number of graduate students in English this year. In 1899-1900 there were 10 students taking English as a major and 13 taking it as a minor, and 4 auditors, etc., making 27 in all. In 1900 —01, there are 32 students taking it as a major, 33 taking it as a minor, and 8 auditors and graduates not candidates for a higher degree, making 73 in all—an increase of more than one hundred and fifty per cent.

Untitled [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 23 November 1900
Less than a week before the game with Carlisle! One final effort on the part of the men who have done so well and the football season of 1900 will have died in a blaze of glory. One more demonstration by the student body, by alumni, by faculty of the gratitude we all bear them, and each one can say to himself that he has done his part. The man who poses as a Columbia supporter must have small excuse for rejoicing if he has not helped the team on with a cheer. No one can feel a tithe of the real satisfaction which comes to the man who has put his heart and soul in the support of the team unless he has seen the struggle which victory cost. Thanksgiving Day must see a memorable showing of all the feelings that are in us, of our appreciation for the work of the team, of our wish to see them win once more, of the desire in every man's heart to rush out on the scarred gridiron at Columbia Field and lifting each warrior high in air to bear him triumphantly on to other fields of victory.
