The College World. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
The College World. CORNELL : Twelve new students have entered the University this term. The Social Science Club is prospering. There will be no examination in English Literature this term. The January number of the Review was the work of one man, the manager. Pach is now at Ithaca for a short time, taking the photos, of faculty and seniors. He will return in May to take the fraternity, literary society and club groups, and also views of the buildings, etc. The seniors have anew elective this term under Prof. H. C. Adams, Ph.D., in money, banking and finance. The crew is rather backward in, getting ■to work in the gymnasium, which the Era says is partly due to the repairs which have been going on in that building. HARVARD : The season has fairly begun, as it were, in the new gymnasium, which is crowded every day with enthusiastic students. The running track, although very generally used, is perhaps the worst feature in the building, the sharpness of the corners and the projection of ...
Our Exchanges. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 27 January 1880
Our Exchanges. have received the Philadelphia Evening News , which has started a college column after the manner of its New York contemporary, the World. THE University Magazine sends us a good January number, containing a fine article on " College Morality," by '62, who gives his opinons from a graduate's point of view. The paper, in several places, urges on all the necessity of preparing for the boat race on the Schuylkill next summer. In another column the editors assert their intention of calling a spade a spade, and add, " If, by publishing to the college the existence of any abuse, we think we can put a stop to it, we shall do so ; so that if there be any thinskinned members in the class of 'Bl, we can only say to them that their actions shall continue an object of interest to us," &amp;c. THE University Herald is a paper which we have always read with interest. The last number before the holidays was very good, an editorial on oratory being particularly worthy of note...

WE are liable to err ; but the man who mistakes his neighbor's slippers for a pair of arctics, pays no small tribute to his understanding. "MAMMA, what are twins made for?" Her precocious brother replied, "So that cannibals may eat philopcenas,"— World. ist Freshman —Did you ever see an ape run ? 2d Fresh. —Oh ! yes. I've seen an apron. It covered one lap.

The Boat House Disaster. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
The Boat House Disaster. YA UR boat house has been made the scene of another such affair as happened to Courtney, last year, at Chautaqua. On last Saturday, Eldredge and Muller had gone to Mott Haven to look over the boats, and to discuss some changes which it had been proposed to make in the rigging. They looked around the boat house, and examined the shell whose rig was under consideration, when suddenly, Eldredge noticed a hole in the bottom of the Lake George "four," Muller, then took her off the rack and carefully examined her from stem to stern, finding in their search that two holes had been knocked in her bottom, apparently by a chisel. The hole can be repaired, luckily, without damaging the speed of the boat to any great extent. She was very well suited to the 'Varsity four, and last year made the best time for one mile and a half, straight away, in in still water. It is probable, however, that she will not be used this year, as it would be unwise to risk our reputation in ...
