PHILISBURY AT COLUMBIA National Champion Gives a Blindfold Exhibition Against Sixteen Members of the Chess Club [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 November 1900
PHILISBURY AT COLUMBIA National Champion Gives a Blindfold Exhibition Against Sixteen Members of the Chess Club A most interesting exhibition was given by li. N. Pillsbury last Friday against sixteen members of the Columbia Chess Club. He played blindfolded simultaneously at all the boards. The boards were arranged on both sides of a long table in Room 406 Schermerhorn Hall, and the room was crowded with students. Pillsbury sat 'in one corner with his back to the table. When he entered the room with Professor Cattell he was cheered by the students who had gathered there. The little laboratory was soon packed with nearly a hundred students, and men stood on the tables and bookcases in order to see the boards. During the playing men were constantly going in and out, so that over two hundred in all probably saw the match. The room was far from quiet, as the door was frequently slammed, and there was considerable conversation among the players and spectators. After Pillsbury had announc...
FOOTBALL NEWS Preparations for Thanksgiving Day Game Almost Complete—Details of Practice [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 November 1900
FOOTBALL NEWS Preparations for Thanksgiving Day Game Almost Complete—Details of Practice Columbia closes the football season on Thursday when she meets the Carlisle Indians. A year ago the game with the Red Men proved decidedly disastrous, but this year it is hoped that the wearers of Blue and White will be better prepared to meet the rapid changing- tactics employed bv Coach Warner's men. The famous wing shift which a twelve month back proved such a puzzling proposition to Columbia's warriors has now become an old story, and in all probability will not be found so effective. It is rumored that Coach Warner has invented some startling variations on his favorite formation, but with the added experience of the Yale, Harvard and Princeton contests the local eleven should not be caught napping. By comparison of this year's performances, Columbia seems to have a slight advantage. Yale's aggregate of 35 points piled up against the Indians offset by her hardly won victory from Sanford's me...
Alumni Reunion [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 November 1900
Alumni Reunion At the reunion of the alumni to be held December 13, at Sherry's, Mr. Dwight Lathrop Elmendorf will deliver a telephotographic lecture on "Camera Recollections of Paris and the Exposition.." The lecture will begin at 8.15 sharp. Later in the evening an informal supper will be served, at which President Low and other prominent alumni will speak. The football team will be present. The report published in some of the daily papers that W. Barclay Parsons would lecture was wrong.
CROSS-COUNTRY RACE Intercollegiate Championship to Be Decided Saturday at Morris Park – Columbia Enters a Strong Team [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 November 1900
CROSS-COUNTRY RACE Intercollegiate Championship to Be Decided Saturday at Morris Park - Columbia Enters a Strong Team The second annual meet for the individual and team championships of the Intercollegiate Cross-Country Association will take place next Saturday afternoon, December ist, at Morris Park, The distance will be five times around the steeplechase course, whose circuit is iji miles, and the first four men to finish from each of the competing universities will constitute the team of that university. Seven may be started from each institution. Cornell, Pennsylvania, Columbia, Yale, and Princeton have entered their best talent and the struggle promises this year to-be closer than ever. Cornell's championship-holding team is expected to repeat its victory, but for second place there is great rivalry. Columbia's chances for an excellent showing are very strong, but attention is called to the fact that in this sport more than in any other the support which the team receives in th...

Columbia Defeats Princeton at Chess —Score 7 — 3 [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 November 1900
Columbia Defeats Princeton at Chess —Score 7 — 3 Columbia defeated Princeton at chess 011 Saturday last, winning by a score of 7 to 3. The Columbia players were the guests of their opponents during the day, and were unanimous in their praise of Princeton's hospitality and courtesy. After being dined at the Princeton Inn, the teams met in Murray Dodge Hall. The games at the ten boards resulted as follows : Board I. —Hunt (P.) drew with Falk (C.) after a blocked game had been reached in 25 moves. Queen's Cambit declined. Board 11.- —Sewall (C.) tried a Scotch Cambit against Weston (P.), and soon won the exchange. Later Weston threw away his queen and was forced to resign after 27 moves. Board lll.—Henley (P.) opened a Ruy Lopez against Gretch (C.). After a brilliant game of 41 moves Gretch forced a winning position and Henley resigned.

The Cane Rush [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 November 1900
The Cane Rush President Henry S. Pritchett of the; Massachusetts Institute of Technology has issued the following statement in regard to the recent fatality in Boston: "Sufficient time has now elapsed to enable us to bring together the facts in the case and to take a calm view of them. It seems, therefore, fitting that some statement should be made on the part of the Institute of Technology, setting forth exactly what took place, and indicating the purposes of the officers of the institute in regard to such matters. "In most American colleges some trial of strength between the sophomore and freshmen classes forms a feature of the college life. In the Institute of Technology this class contest has, for a number of years, taken the form of a football match between teams chosen from the two classes, followed by a cane rush. This event takes place, usually, just before Thanksgiving, and occupies practically the whole of one afternoon. The contest has been distinctly a student institutio...

It will no longer be necessary for the candidates to practise with the Varsity at 5.15 on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The hour which has been secured is at 12.30 Wednesdays. There are at present about twelve candidates for the team, and the number is rapidly increasing. Some of the men have played on their school teams and are far from new at the game. The following are among the candidates : W. H. Putnam, W. H. Baxter, A. J. Akin, E. M. Bogart, G. A. Updike, H. Benjamin, A. B. Hudson, J- Arkell, A. F. Holmes, A. Eakin, R. von Bermuth. W. H.

Princeton Historical Society [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 November 1900
Princeton Historical Society There has recently been organized in Princeton a society, composed of prominent alumni, for the purpose of collecting and publishing all available data bearing on the early history of the nation, and more particularly on the part which Princeton took in the making of that history. At present the society is engaged in preparing for publication the journal and letters of Philip Vicker Fithian, who was a member of the class of 1772 under the Presidency of Dr.. Witherspoon, and distinguished in Princeton's history for the loyalty which he displayed for the cause of the new Republic. The Fithian collection throws considerable light upon the undergraduate life there in the eighteenth century, for Fithian kept a complete journal of his doings at Nassau Hall, and he counted among his college mates James Madison, Aaron Burr, Philip Freneau, "Light Horse Harry" Lee, and many others who became prominent in the country's history. At the end of the year the collectio...
Intercollegiate Hockey [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 November 1900
Intercollegiate Hockey Hockey among the colleges will take the preliminary steps of its organization this week, when the delegates from the various teams will meet at the St. Nicholas Rink to elect officers, arrange their schedule, and determine upon their membership for the current year. The most important step that is likely to be taken will be the admission of Cornell to the league. The Ithaca college has applied for membership, and in all probability will be admitted. The entrance into hockey of Cornell will likely bring into the league a new factor. Cornell is situated in a climate where there is considerable ice, upon which the team can practice during the winter. The advantage of steady practice is a feature which has much to do with the success of a hockey seven. Up to the present time Columbia has been the only college which has enjoyed regular work on the ice during the season. Rain or shine, cold or hot, Columbia has steadily played in the St. Nicholas Rink. Princeton and...
Hockey [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 November 1900
Hockey The regular hockey practice took place last Saturday evening and proved very satisfactory. From now on, the evening's work will be of a different character, doing away almost entirely with "scrub matches." The greater part of the hour's work is used to develop speed and stick-work in the forwards. In team work, especially when the opponents are aggressive, there is a great tendency to slow up from the original speed of the pack in going down the ice. To avoid this, the men are started at full speed, from one end of the rink, and with continual "passing," reach the goal and shoot, without losing any of the original speed. This is not an easy thing to accomplish by any means, but can be done, with practice. This is an essential requirement for a fast team. The object in having no opponents, except a "point" and "goalkeeper," is to give the men a chance to develop stick work, which is impossible if the men are blocked, etc. The only men who need not report next Wednesday are Rei...
