Title

Column "The Spectator's Column"

Description

The Spectator's Column seems to be brief descriptions of domestic and international news outside of the University of Richmond. Attention should be placed on two news clips here, clip 4 and clip 5. Clip 4 discusses the discovery of a recent lynching of a black person that took place in Georgia. The "Negro" has been accused of murder of a chief of police. The author of this clip, W.S.K, refers to the frequency in which lynchings are read about in newspapers within his first line which reads, "We see by the papers that another lynching has taken place in this great country of ours." The following clip discusses the killings of 8,000 people in Peiping, China by a bandit army.
