Football News [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 7 December 1900
Football News W. R. Morley has been re-elected captain of the football team. He is a senior in the School of Mines, but intends to return to Columbia to take post-graduate work. With the assurance of his return to college, Columbia's back-field will remain the same for next year unless some of the men are displaced by better candidates for the position. The much-talked-of trip to California during the Christmas holidays is off. Manager Shoemaker was unable to make satisfactory arrangements with the management of the University of California. The financial report of the manager of the football team will be printed if possible in our next issue. The report is completed, but not in shape as yet. It shows that the team has gone through the season in a successful manner and has paid all its debts. The surplus will be very small if there is any at all. William R. Morley, 1901 S., comes from Datil, New Mexico, and learned the game at the Pennsylvania Military Academy, where he prepared for...

Yale Freshmen Statistics [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 7 December 1900
Yale Freshmen Statistics Dr. Seaver, director of the Yale gymnasium, has completed his examination of the Freshman class, and the statistics are given below: The average age of the class is 19 years 2 months and 26 days. This age is greater than that of any entering class during the eighteen years that record has been kept. The average weight of the class is 140.1 lbs.; the average height, standing, 5 feet 8.2 inches; the measurement of the upper arm is 11.6 inches; of the thigh, 20.2 inches, and the average lung capacity is 260 cubic inches. Fifty-four per cent, of the class do not use tobacco; 30 per cent. have used it for over a year; half of the rest are irregular users and the other half have begun to smoke within a year. The number of men using tobacco is 15 per cent, greater than the college average. A comparison with past records shows that 1904 is a little above the average in almost every measurement, the age and height being particularly noticeable.
Columbia AB.—ABS [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 7 December 1900
Columbia AB. — ABS A worthy and pleasing contribution to the literature of Columbia has just been made in the shape of a little volume of alphabet verses, the joint work of Melville Henry Cane, 1900, 1903 L., and Will Hunt Schanck, 1900 S. The form of this little book is as novel as its contents are attractive. Each verse occupies a separate page, and is accompanied by its own drawing. Moreover, there is, apart from the title pages no letter-press, not only the picture but the text being printed from plates made after the artists' own Whatever the volume may lose through this in that regularity and symmetry sought after by many book-lovers, it assuredly gains in liveliness and picturesqueness, which, after all, is the chief desideratum in composition of this sort; and the drawings, in effect, bring home singularly well the real human meaning of the lines. There are in all twenty-six of these sprightly picture-rhymes, each dealing, more or less tersely and wittily with some familiar ...
Philolexian Meets [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 7 December 1900
Philolexian Meets Those who were present at Philolexian meeting Wednesday night enjoyed a particularly interesting session. Mr. Pitkin, 'O3 L., delivered a striking oration, his subject being "Discontent." E. J. Redington, 'O3 L., read an essay upon "The Czar's Peace Conference." The paper was full of quiet humor and mild sarcasm, and altogether quite a successful effort. G. H. Butler, 'O3, delivered an extempore speech upon "College Hazing," taking the position that most hazing was a relic of barbarism. G. K. Foster, 'Ol, spoke extemporaneously upon "The President's Message." The question debated does not appear inviting at first glance, but the speakers happily turned it into a most interesting discussion. The question, "Resolved, That too much stress is laid upon the athletic side of university education," was supported affirmatively by Messrs. Helvie and Lea, 'O3 L., with Messrs. Beers, 'Ol, and Ottenberg, 'O2, for the negative. The decision was awarded the negative. H. D. Sears...

Obituary Arthur Augustus Seymour Powers, '97, died last August, of consumption, on his way home from the Adirondacks.

While in college he wrote the lyrics of "Cleopatra" and "In Vanity Fair," besides the '97 class song, and a great deal of other Columbia verse, some of which has been re-published in "Columbia Verse." He was class Historian in his Freshman year, and on the Dinner and Show Committees the same year. He took part in the class show in his Sophomore year. His talent in lyric writing was recognized outside of the college world, and he wrote verse for the magazines, and for some amateur shows in this city.
