Somerville B.C. Club Get Ready for the Grand Reception [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 January 1920
Somerville B.C. Club Get Ready for the Grand Reception Among the pioneer B. C. clubs Somerville claims and deserves considerable credit. The prime factors in the founding of the club were members of the Class of '16. With such men as Mr. Garrick, John Morrissey, Tony Saverty and Charley Sharkey working diligently the club leaped into prominence in the year of its inception. Somerville is very fortunate in having excellent advisers to turn to when in need of assistance. Fr. Mullen of St. Joseph's Church, the spiritual director of the organization, is a B. C. enthusiast of rare personality and it is due to his encouragement and financial assistance that the social program was begun which has maintained its high standing. It is the aim of the Somerville members to provide frequent entertainments for themselves and friends in order that interest will be pitched high for the big feature of the year. This is a formal function which usually takes place just after the worries of the Mid yea...

A LOST ART. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 January 1920
A LOST ART. Aside from athletics, every live college boasts of at least one other activity in which it is particularly interested. Debating has always been this feature at Boston College and the praises of our debaters have been widely sung. Some of Boston's most prominent and valuable citizens have won their spurs through the training received in the Fulton Debating Sosiety. Delve into the past. Read the records of the Fulton Society and you will glow with pride to know the worthy opponents we met and vanquished. Listen to a former President of the Fulton who recently addressed the members of the Bapst Debating Society at its quarter-century anniversary celebration and you will learn from him that the men who have since become prominent, and who have in greatest measure given glory to themselves and their Alma Mater, in the intervening years since he directed the destinies of the Fulton Society, have invariably been those who associated themselves with debating and public speaking ...
"As We See It" Happy Mid-years! [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 January 1920
"As We See It" Happy Mid-years! By Bosco During the late lamented vacation we journeyed out here to view the widely advertised "hew board track." It's anything but new, but to its age, we reflected, is linked a wealth of championship tradition that will be invaluable inspiration to Jack Ryder's athletes. Census-taking is a major sport. Resolution for "2.30 Birds" —"I'll be the first one at Lake Street." At the Battle of the Midyears .... General Faculty—■ "They shall not pass!" Actor: (Not Morgan Ryan) "What's in a name?" Census-Taker: "Four cents." There were some who thought the quartquintsextet in the College play was funny. We thought—well, we had nice, kind charitable thoughts about them. Speaking of the play, however, we wish to congratulate all concerned. It was a very creditable performance and merited the two large, enthusiastic audiences which greeted it on successive nights—cold nights, too, weren't they? The next time the class treasurer asks us for money, we're going in...
Boston College Plays YD Tonight at Pavilion Boston College Plays YD Frank Morrissey's men in First Game of Season [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 January 1920
Boston College Plays YD Tonight at Pavilion Boston College Plays YD Frank Morrissey's men in First Game of Season To-night at the new Ice Pavilion, Cambridge, Frank Morrissey's team lines up against the YD. Hughes and Healey are going to have all kinds of trouble caging the disc with Freddie Huntington playing on the defense for the soldiers and Art Donahue guarding the net —the same Art that starred for the B. A. A. in the old Arena. While the YD will put a team of stars on the ice, Capt. Morrissey is confident that with the support of the student body Boston College will defeat the veterans. The Hockey Team needs your support, moral and financial. Manager Morrissey stated to a representative of The Heights that, last year the attendance at the games was not up to the mark, and he hoped that in this regard the present season would show a decided improvement. He said the team was in good condition for so early in the year and promised a hard, fast game to those who are coming to Cam...
TRACK [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 January 1920
TRACK The board track was laid during the Christmas holidays and there were some enthusiastic track aspirants who tried their spikes on the boards before the reopening of classes. A number of young stars from B. C. High took advantage of the opportunity offered them to limber up out of doors. "Jake" Driscoll was on hand and whispered a few words of advice to the youngsters. We want the boys from James Street to feel at home at the Heights.

Inter-Class Hockey Immediate Attention, Classes! [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 January 1920
Inter-Class Hockey Immediate Attention, Classes! Hockey has the poorest chance of any sport to become popular when the game must be played out of doors. Any shift on the weather means lack of ice and corresponding inactivity in the great ice game. For this reason get your class hockey team started. Take advantage of every opportunity to play and let us see some real action on our new rink. Senior will arrange games through Bill Lyons. See him at once.
Southern Trip in March [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 January 1920
Southern Trip in March Jerry O'Neil promises more than glory to the fortunate athletes who make the nine next spring. In March the most efficient welders of the willow will depart for the South, the first such trip undertaken by a B. C. ball team since before the war. While no coach has yet been secured and it's none of our business anyway, still we feel fairly safe in saying that when B. C. plays town at Washington, Fitzie will again be throwing them to Urban. There are a great many men in the college who can play ball but who won't go out for the team. There will be plenty of incentive next season. It is early yet, but oil your glove— and See America First.
College Play Great Success Heights Critic Gives Merited Praise [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 January 1920
College Play Great Success Heights Critic Gives Merited Praise "Helping Father," the farcical comedy presented by the College Dramatic" Association December 17th and 18th was a pronounced success. Speaking not out of a consideration of College plays presented in the past, but out of an observation of audiences, "The Heights" critic has rarely seen an audience in the hall on James Street, so evidently enjoying itself. The work of Edward Finnegan as Mr,. Woolson and Morgan Ryan as Serins Barker was magnificent. Mr. Finnegan is quite the finished, actor. He has the little tricks that go with experience, . and is post sessed of abundant personality. In this possession rests the note of uniqueness and individuality that he always gives to his roles. Certainly, he lent steadiness and distinction to what was otherwise -a somewhat inexperienced though talented cast. Mr. Ryan was exquisite. His air of resignation to his absurd position, his hurt fully funny attempts at escape, were all direc...
