Current Topics. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
Current Topics. A AT" ITH this number closes the fifth volume of THE SPECTATOR, and the old board of editors gives place to the new. Many of the new board, however, are members of the old, the association having re-elected them. The year that has passed has been an eventful one in the life of THE SPECTATOR. Various improvements have been made, notably the introduction of cartoons, THE SPECTATOR being now the only regularly illustrated college paper. The editors have endeavored to place it in the front rank of college journalism, and hope that the general impression has been that they have produced a paper worthy of their alma mater. The cordial support they have received from both graduates and undergraduates is proof that they have been, in some measure, successful, and leaving to their successors the advancement of Columbia's interests, we bid adieu to all. A S stated in these columns, Eighty-Three has accepted Harvard's challenge for a Freshman race at New London. We earnestly ho...
Midnight. (Adapted from the German of Eichendorff.) [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
Midnight. (Adapted from the German of Eichendorff.) HARK ! through the stillness of night comes ringing The sound of a post-horn gaily blown, And on through the darkness of midnight winging, It passes while I stand here alone. But still re-echo those tones of gladness, Though fainter and far their joyous cheer ; They fill my spirit with thoughts of sadness, For I would be up and away from here. And now a chorus of merry voices Resounding the mountain-path along ! Within its prison my heart rejoices To hear the familiar college song. It speaks to me of the happy hours That pass in the world that yonder lies, Of playful fancies and fragrant bowers, Of youthful hearts and of brightest eyes. C. H. C.
College Colors. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
College Colors. I. • A SUBJECT of the importance of the one under consideration has a more than merely local interest. The causes that have lead to the selection of a particular color as representing a college, or university can at times be traced to their origin, while at others there appears to be none, and the selection seems to have been entirely a matter of chance. Although it is not an easy matter to find out when colors were first used for this purpose, a few interesting notes here brought, forward may not be out of place. We know, for instance, that in the XVth century the students of the University of Paris recognized each other in the city by the color of their caps, or by having bits of ribbon attached to their cloaks. Again, in that very entertaining description of his everyday life left us by Pepys, we have one passage given us from which it may be inferred that, in his days, it was the custom, at Oxford, for a certain body of students to wear purple cockades on their h...
Semi-Annual. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
Semi-Annual. HP HE Semi-Annual Reception, of the class of 1880, which was held at the Academy of Music last Friday evening, was one of the best ever given by Columbia. The speeches were all well written, and, in most cases, well delivered, though, as usual, not much of them was heard by those at a distance from the stage. The house was not remarkably well filled, the number of empty boxes being especially noticeable. This was due, in great measure, to the fact that Lent is at hand, and the number of engagements, which always crowd the week preceding it, kept away many who would otherwise have attended. As Eben's band played Bach's Grand Procession March, the marshals, committee men, and orators, filed on the stage, together with Prof. Van Amringe, the only one of the faculty who was present, and, as the last notes of the march died away, the Senior President, Mr. W. F. Morgan, rose, and opened the ceremonies with an excellent address, in which he reviewed the events of the past year...
The Criblet. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
The Criblet. VERDANT Freshie had a criblet Rolled upon a little stick, And when he saw the Profile look, 'Twas hidden very quick. Alas ! the Profile tumbled, And told him to deliver The little criblet straight to him, And leave the room forever. No more examinations Will he write upon his cuff, No more the pony-clippings In his pocket need he stuff. But now, his cuffs are white as snow ; The pony's laid aside ; The criblet no more turns around, Since little Freshie hied— To meet his papa. MORAL. Little Freshie ! little Freshie ! Keep thy criblet out of sight ; For if somebody catches thee, 'Tis up with Freshie quite. GEORGE WASHINGTON PAIDES, M.A
Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
Correspondence. FIFTH AVENUE HOTEL, Feb. 5, 1880. MESSRS. EDITORS : A LLOW me to make a few suggestions on the ***• subject of Base Ball. I am a great lover of the national game, and would advocate the organization of a Base Ball Association at Columbia. I think a University nine could be formed that would reflect credit on the college ; there are many men who are perfectly willing to play and practice, and who would make capital ball-tossers, provided that there was an organization which could make all necessary arrangements. By sending notices to the medical, law and other branches of the University, we could get men to form the foundation of a club, whose nine in a few years would rival Yale and Harvard. I hope that some of the prominent men at college will take this matter in hand and push it forward, so that a nine may be organized before spring. In regard to ground where the nine could practice, our college is at a great disadvantage, as the trustees do not seem to have awaken...
Disaster. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
Disaster. WHILE Nature was in noontide torpor hushed, O'er moor and fen, there swiftly, wildly rushed A youth, who, on his palid face, did bear The dreadest lines of terror and despair. Do howling red men follow ? No. Do uprooting tornadoes blow ? Doth he of murder bear the news ? Or doth he fear the train to lose ? ***** * Nay, he of no tornado knew, Of homicide he had no clue ; Nor was he of the cars in quest. He'd only trod in a hornet's nest. CRASSUS.

About College. ("ATIS has resigned from the Burial Committee. PEITHOLOGIA has her elections on Friday. All should attend. BUTLER, 'B2, has resigned his position as class secretary. THE Booty will read parts of Pindar, Alcaeus, and Sappho during this term. THE juniors have not yet elected their members of the foot-ball association. EIGHTY-ONE contributed $6O to the SemiAnnual. Noble contribution !! ! A COUPLE of ancient dames were inquiring if the college was the "Woman's Hospital," some days since. MR. ASHMORE has started a Booty at the request of several freshmen, who are eager to increase their knowledge of Latin. BEER OR NO BEER ? THE Anglo-Saxons will henceforth disport themselves in the room formerly occupied by Prof. Nairne. TRIGONOMETRIC formulas have proved too much for fourteen of the sophomores, and they look sadly at their names in red ink on the bulletin board. WE would correct the announcement we made in our last issue of the officers of the Chess Club. Mr. Nies, 'B2, i...
School of Mines. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
School of Mines. A MEETING of the Engineering Society was held on Jan. 23. The following officers were elected for the second half year : J. L. Greenleaf, President; C. D. Starr and E. Iv. Dunham, Vice-Presidents ; A. M. Parker, Treasurer. After the election, a very able paper, on " Steam Hammers," was read by Mr. M. J. O'Connor. ON the evening of Jan. 20th, Mr. N. L. Britton, Prof. Newberry's assistant, delivered a lecture on "Botany," before the Teachers' Association of Jersey City and Hudson County, at the residence of Mr. C. R. Smith, 'Bl, Jersey City. ON Friday, Feb. 6th, Mr. Holley commenced his lectures on " Practical Metallurgy" to the fourth year students, and the Civil Engineering students are required to attend them, although they know nothing whatever about regenerators, furnaces, etc., the intracicies of which he immediately plunges into, presupposing a vast knowledge of the subject on the part of the listener.

School of Law. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 10 February 1880
School of Law. T T would be impossible to over estimate the benefit to be derived from the faithful work in the Department of Public Law. As is well known, this department is under the exclusive management of Professor Burgess. We would advise those undergraduates of the college who intend to enter the Law School, to give special attention to the lectures of Professor Alexander, as well as to those of Professors Burgess and Smith, since a proper pursuit of the branches which these lectures cover will afford a fine preparation for the special course. The " Seminar " was organized last month, and is composed, for the most part, of graduates of the scientific schools and of those colleges which, having thrown off the mantle of conservatism, afford instruction in the French and German languages. It would be needless to add that Columbia has no representative in this year's class. PROFESSOR, —"Now Mr. B , will you give me an illustration of Real Estate ?" Mr. B "Yes Sir," (holding up a l...
