Many and various are the pursuits by which Columbia students earned last summer money amounting to $55,313. A report of P. C. Holter, chairman of the appointments committee of the institution, indicates that a willingness by students to turn any pleasure to financial account, aided them in increasing their earnings by $17,000 over those of the previous summer. Acting as companions to unfortunate possessors of wealth stands high among the places filled by the hard-working students. But playing pianos in summer hotels, working in drug stores, and even the questionable thrills of chauffering trolley cars were not frowned on by those who earn their way through the university.
