Johns Hopkins' President Resigns Dr. Daniel C. Gilman, President of Johns Hopkins University since its foundation 25 years ago, has anannounced his intention of resigning from the presidency next February and retiring to private life.

Rushes Abolished [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 4 December 1900
Rushes Abolished The flag- rush which has always followed the annual class football games at Tufts has been abolished. President Capen placed the matter in the hands of the two lower classes and, after considerable discussion, they voted by a large majority to abolish the rush. The Freshman speakers were largely in favor of the action, while several Sophomores preferred to continue the custom. A committee was appointed to arrange for a contest of some other kind. The faculty of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has abolished the cane rush on account of the fatality which occurred in the underclass rush, last Thursday. Chicago University has taken similar action, and the annual class rush which has been set for Friday night has been prohibited by faculty action. The students of both institutions are now looking for a substitute.

THE PRESS What the Dailies Had to Say About the Thanksgiving Day Game. Columbia's attack and defense in the first half were well-nigh perfect. Sanford's men rushed the ball in that time for 330 yards, while the Indians made but 44. — N. Y. Sun. Columbia's victory was due to superb football playing by Sanford's men from the very start. — N. Y. Sun. Those who were present, however, saw a good, hard-fought game of football, in which Columbia's team added to the briliant record already made this season. — N. Y. Times. The game was Columbia's after the first ten minutes' of play, in spite of the fast work of the Indians in the second half. Coach Sanford's men were in the pink of condition, and resisted the speedy onslaughts of the wiry aborigines with an equally quick defense. —N. Y. World, Columbia's record this season is a very creditable one. — N. Y. IVorld. Columbia seems an undisputed fourth on the list by virtue of her victories over Princeton and the Indians and because of her fiv...
