I forgot to mention the simplest method, which is to square the slice
of the matrix directly.

tbl = {{1, 2, 3},{4, 5, 6},{7, 8, 9},{2, 3, 4}}

for second col:

tbl[[All, 2]]^2
-->{4, 25, 64, 9}

to do both cols at same time:

tbl[[All, {2, 3}]]^2
---> {{4, 9}, {25, 36}, {64, 81}, {9, 16}}

I like to Map allot, and so sometimes I overlook that it might not
be needed.
