WE HATE TO [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
WE HATE TO bother you but the fact is that THE HEIGHTS is not run on "hot air and cold potatoze" as a well known writer once said. To he brief: The second instalment of your HEIGHTS' subscription is due and we want everybody to be paid up by next Friday, Feb. 18. To those who have made their first payment the shock will be slight—seventyfive cents. To the others—and there are quite a few—the blow will be a little more severe—a dollar and a half. Take the "stall" out of "instalment," pay your subscription and experience the pleasant sensation of reading your copy of THE HEIGHTS with an easy conscience. After you have finished reading this, read it again and DO IT!
BARRELS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
BARRELS Downstairs we have a smoking room. In that smoking room we have barrels. You all use the smoking room. Billy uses the barrels. There are many kinds of barrels. Some are for sugar, some are for flour and some are for refuse. The barrels referred to here are of the last type. Nothing looks so nice, so natural, as a great profusion of orange skins, well carved pie crusts, slightly used papers and long dead cigarette butts comfortably ensconced in one of the aforesaid re- ceptacles. If you want your smoking room to look as well as it should and as it did, practise on your barrel shots. Remember, friends, we have many visitors.
HERE'S AN IDEA [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
HERE'S AN IDEA The following letter received at THE HEIGHTS office, explains itself: Editor of THE HEIGHTS, Dear Sir: —I refer the following matter to you with the hope that you can find some solution befitting the case. As we all know, our Assembly Hall is rich in symbolism. Over the stage is a large mural painting, bordered with shields representative of the arts and sciences. Along the walls and in the corners are, presumably, the heads of saints, supporting the beams. Flanking the ends of the balcony, high on the rear walls are two more shields and beneath the balcony a Gaelic inscription with still another shield. We pass back and forth and spend all our days in sight of these symbols, and yet, how many students can give even a meager explanation of them? They know that the beautiful stained glass window repre-. sents St. Patrick teaching before somebody-or-other, because it is so marked in black and white, and the shields over the stage are also labelled—but who in the student...
KNOCKS AND KNOCKOUTS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
KNOCKS AND KNOCKOUTS We do not like to preach—you wouldn't listen if we did—but there are certain fellows who delight in "knocking" everybody who attains a little success. They work on the principle that "every knock is a boost," but they want to remember that "every knock is a boost unless it is a knockout," and a "knockout" is a criminal assault if it is done in the dark. So don't commit criminal assault on any fellow's character— the esteem of his classmates is one of the cherished memories of a college student.
A MESSAGE FROM ABOVE To the Members of the Senior Class [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
A MESSAGE FROM ABOVE To the Members of the Senior Class Editor's Note:—Below is a letter we found in the grassy plot just in front of the Recitation Building. This letter is from the B. C. mascot —The Eagle. Up in the belfry of the tower the Eagle is ever watchful. With its eagle eye piercing the hazy mist, it silently observes the future events, as in the distance they draw thenselves up in formidable array against B. C. This letter was written by the Eagle, and dropped from his dizzy height in the tower: A letter to the Seniors, the men of Twenty-One. Dear Seniors: — Having rested myself, after my journey to the Penn games, where I watched your track heroes crown themselves with glory, where for the first time, they bore an emblem of me upon their breasts, I hasten to fulfill a duty which, since I have been selected as mascot, I have been putting off, from time to time. I wish to call your attention to the fact that soon, for time flies unseeingly like the wind, you shall be biddi...

SCIENCE DEPARTMENT New Animal Discovered by the Lost Hope Expedition! [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
SCIENCE DEPARTMENT New Animal Discovered by the Lost Hope Expedition! By the Staff Deporter The expedition which was sent out in 18 6 2 by the Lost Hope Hallilujia to the wilds of the Sargasso Sea, in order to find, if possible, the missing link between a deck of cards and an ice cream soda, reports as follows: "Our official brow-wiper, while collecting an armfull of icicles for the fire, was attacked by a strange animal on the morning after the night before. Our hero was standing on the shady side of a pane of glass waiting for the icicles to form on his chin, when suddenly he became aware of a series of explosions taking place before his very eves. He would have reported the occurence immediately if he had been the official observer instead of the browwiper, but in as much as he was not, he simply remained intact and waited for death to occur. The explosions, as it seemed, proceeded from a square hole in the water, and seemed to be produced by the weather in December. Our self-sac...
BROSNAHAN DEBATING SOCIETY ELECTS J. F. Desmond '24, New President [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
BROSNAHAN DEBATING SOCIETY ELECTS J. F. Desmond '24, New President New officers were elected for the second term at last week's meeting of the Brosnahan. James F. Desmond of Reading, Vice Pres. of the class of '24, was chosen to fill the office of President. The other officers elected were R. S. Burke, Vice Pres.; J. L. Tribble, Treas.; F. J. Hines, Seer.; and E. J. Kelly, Censor. The new President urged the members to exercise the privilege of partaking in the open debates during the coming term. He warned them that unless each debate proved to be spirited and completely analyzed, all interest in the society and its activities would lag and as a result the society would prove to be unattractive and uninteresting. A previous motion relative to an entertainment during the Easter week was passed and a Committee appointed to make arrangements.
FR. DONNELLY SHOWS HOW TO DEVELOP IMAGINATION Lectures to O'Reilly Reading Circle [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
FR. DONNELLY SHOWS HOW TO DEVELOP IMAGINATION Lectures to O'Reilly Reading Circle Father Donnelly gave the second of his lectures in the John Boyle O'Reilly Beading Circle Course at the Cathedral School Hall on Harrison Ave., Monday. Feb. 7. The subject of the lecture was the Development of the Literary Imagination. The lecturer continued the introductory matter which he began in his first lecture on the Mastering of an Art. With the spread of the departmental system and the enlarging of classes making teachers lecturers, the study of literature has become, explained Fr. Donnelly, predominently scientific. The methods of the university have been transferred to College and High School. Fr. Donnelly illustrated this scientifice handling of language by analyzing passages of literature to exemplify history, philology, biography, the mingled Celtic and Teutonic strains described by Arnold, the romantic and classical movements, and various other scientific approaches to a literary text. S...
SPORT NOOZ [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
SPORT NOOZ By Sniffy McSnuffy We don't usually try to dope the bike races but we can't help taking a whack at this one. If the Crisco Mazola team is four laps in the lead in the last four seconds of the sixday jaunt at the Garden, they ought to win. There is no use in talking but it looks as though you ought to mark my words that the old timers had a little on the present day champs. All of which reminds me of the time I broke the world's record for the 100-yard dash in Greenland. The track was covered with ice and was uphill all the way. Although I ran in a diving suit and fell eight times in the first ten yards, I finished twenty-five years in front in the record time of 8 1-25 seconds.
QUERIES [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
QUERIES Dear McSnuffy: Who holds the record for the running broad grin? —O. I. L. Answer: There is no such event. Friend Sniffy: Does a full house beat a landlord? —K. A. N. Answer: I refuse to incriminate myself by answering this question. Dear McSnuffy: Where shall I send my entry for the standing high collar at the Arrow Meet? —D. I. Z. Answer: To any Chinese laundry. Friend Sniffy: Who was the greatest of the old-time athletes? —D. U. M. Answer: I was and I still am and I will be as long as my typewriter is able to stand the strain. Dear Sniffy:ls it true that you write these letters yourself?—B. E. L. Answer: Who told you that story must have heard it through his back collar button.
FR. CORRIGAN ON EDUCATIONAL CAESARISM IN THE SCHOOLS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
FR. CORRIGAN ON EDUCATIONAL CAESARISM IN THE SCHOOLS The Rev. Jones I. J. Corrigan, S. J., Professor of Social Ethics at Boston College, speaking before a capacity audience of masters, sub-masters, and school teachers of Greater Boston in Boston College High School hall last night declared that "educational Caesarism threatens American schools," and that "the loss of parental control over the education of the young cannot but work great evil to the future of the country." "Professional educators," he declared, "are striving to effect an extension of their power over the schools. As a matter of fact, the schools already have got too far away from parental control," he said. Father Corrigan clashed sharply with educational views recently expressed, and contended that "the professional educator is the last man in the world to be entrusted with the uncontrolled education of the young." "Recently it was asserted in a public educational conference that 'the State should take the children ...
MAYOR PETERS ADDRESSES B. C. MILITIAMEN Battery C Secures More Recruits [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
MAYOR PETERS ADDRESSES B. C. MILITIAMEN Battery C Secures More R e cruits Mayor Andrew J. Peters urged the necessity of having a large, welltrained citizen force of soldiers if we do not desire a large professional army such as militaristic Germany possessed, when he spok'e before an interested gathering of B. C. artillerymen and their friends at the Commonwealth Airmory last Friday evening. Mayor Peters was himself a member of the old National Guard and he admits the training did him good, even though the horse did not always seem to be man's best friend, and everything was not just play. All in all, the Mayor made everyone who wore the khaki feel that there was something worth while in serving, the joy of knowing that one is doing something for others. The National Guard is the country's second line of land defence, and, seeing that our regular army is now to be reduced to a mere handful, it will become the first line. The battery gave an exhibition drill at 8 o'clock, which was s...
FR. STINSON LECTURES ON LOURDES Visited Shrine While in France With American Troops. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 February 1921
FR. STINSON LECTURES ON LOURDES Visited Shrine While in France With American Troops. On Tuesday, February Bth, at the Academy of the Sacred Heart, Commonwealth Avenue, Father William Stinson, S. J., gave an illustrated lecture on the world famous shrine of Lourdes. During his stay in France as an Army Chaplain, Fr. Stinson had the good fortune to visit this chosen kingdom of Mary, and so in his lecture was able to add the touch of personal impression to the Shrine's fascinating story. The views that illustrated the lecture were obtained in France and their beautiful designing and coloring helped not a little in making Lourdes and its beautiful setting more vividly real to the audience. The lecture was the fifth of a course given at the Academy by Fr. Stinson. The last lecture will be given on Tuesday, March Ist, when he will tell with slides the story of St. Margaret Mary and the chosen Shrine of the Sacred Heart at Paray-le-Monial.
