BOSTON COLLEGE TIES U. OF P. IN RELAY RACE AT BROOKLYN GAMES [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 February 1921
BOSTON COLLEGE TIES U. OF P. IN RELAY RACE AT BROOKLYN GAMES Although there are many and conflicting reports on the result of the relay race in New York Saturday night, the fact that Captain of Track "Jake" Driscoll came back with the cup and medals should be conclusive evidence even to the most wary that the team came through, as we expected. Owing to some 'misunderstanding our sister Colleges did not enter the relay so we were pitted against Penn. for the one mile Invitation affair. Jake running anchor was compelled to start with a ten- yard handicap against Earl Eby of Olympic fame, but our long speedy track captain was equal to the emergency. At the finish the judges were j unable to declare a winner although | the general trend of opinion gave the victory to the Boston fivers. In the i argument that followed it seems Jake took charge of the cup and medals. B. A, A.

SEN. SMITH AND THE MASONS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 February 1921
SEN. SMITH AND THE MASONS The great American educational slander faces a new development, Senator Smith before the assembled Congress voices the sentiments of the Smith-Towner patriots by saying that he is "aware of the fact that there is a small organized opposition" to the bill. We might wander a little here and remind the distinguished gentleman from Georgia of that commendable story appropos of glass houses and geological specimens. "A small ORGANIZED opposition! !! "from the Smith-Townerites themselves! It seems laughable when we consider the history of the bill, and especially the conduct of a certain "Citizens" Conference held a short time ago. For the information of the under-educated American public we might mention (with all due deference to Senator Smith) that the opposition contains such eminent educators as President Emeritus Eliot of Harvard, President Hadley of Yale, President Hibben of Princeton, and President Butler of Columbia. However they are to pay the penalty f...
PACIFIED! [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 February 1921
PACIFIED! Editor of The Heights, Dear Sir. I am exceedingly gratified to see that you have accepted my remarks of a week ago in the spirit in which they were given. This is only a further proof of your open-minded administration of the "tabula unrasa," and that you intend to assuage the feeling of the Hoi Polloi. Your poet's lair shows promise of becoming a most prominent refuge in which to ensconce our afflicted ultra-philosophical brethren. Sic omnes habe carum! Remember, I adjure you, dear sir, that variety is the spice of life, and the more spice the more variety, n'est ce pas? Wishing you further success in your future endeavors, I will now sign myself Temporarily Pacified Senior.

SOCIETY STUFF [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 February 1921
SOCIETY STUFF By Phelix Phrappe Some of the daffydils that jaunt through a curriculum and grab off a degree of Baker of Tarts or Master of Hall, know everything except how to shuffle among the "Aristoc." A dead language inscribed on a yard of pig-skin is not included in the free list of the lobby loungers. You've got to bat a couple of "thous" in etiquette and formal attire before you get your degree of Phinancial Downcast. One of the points you've got to pack in your chapeau knob is an affiliation with the idiosyncrasies of a dress suit. The acrobatic outfit isn't very popular now since the felicitous larynx ticklers have been restricted from immigration. In the days when four per cent beer was iced tea, the hired sack cloth was a whole list of trumps at every social riot. A bird wore the black overalls and jumper because it didn't show beer stains. Now a suit with a beer stain is a priceless relic. However, the useless disguise is still in vogue among the four centuries of the dou...
FULTON LECTURE TEAM APPEARS BEFORE BRIGHTON COUNCIL, K. of C. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 February 1921
FULTON LECTURE TEAM APPEARS BEFORE BRIGHTON COUNCIL, K. of C. The Fulton Lecture Team of Boston College in presenting the case against the Smith-Towner Bill before the Brighton Council of the Knights of Columbus last Thursday night strongly attacked the report of the Congressional Committee on Education on the score that it was garbling statistics in saying that the United States ranked ninth among the nations of the world in educational opportunities. The committee bases its statement upon the figures showing illiteracy in the United States. The report was quoted as saying that illiteracy was not a purely Southern question. The figures supporting this contention state "Georgia has 39,000 illiterates, but New York has 4 0 6,000." As the Fulton Team pointed out "These figures represent the numbers, but in proportion to population Georgia is 21 °/, illiterate while New York is only s?f. Thus have the supporters of this measure concluded that the United States ranks ninth in education....
