Charlestown B. C. Club [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 January 1920
Charlestown B. C. Club On February 3, the B. C. Club of Chariest own plans to hold its 3rd Annual Social at Roughan hall. The proceeds will be devoted to a fund for the erection of the next building to grace the fair crest of University Heights. History is expected to repeat itself and the dance will undoubtedly be the supreme social event in Charlestown. The profits derived from the two previous dances were spent in assisting Charlestown B. C. men in service. The Club owes its existence to the enthusiastic efforts of Dr. John O'Brien, Peter F. Kelley. Capt. James A. Dunbar, Capt. Lawrence A. Kiely, Ensign Win. A. P. Fitzgerald, Ensign Harry F. Kiley, John J. McCarthy and Joseph A. Donahue. Dr. O'Brien was chosen in the spring of 1917, to be the first president. Membership was opened not only to B. C. men, but also to their fathers and to others who showed an active interest in the college. It was extremely gratifying to note the large number of men who enrolled, who had never atten...
Freshmen Hold Election [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 January 1920
Freshmen Hold Election Great was the pyrotechnical display on Thursday afternoon when the college infants doffed the swaddling clothes and boldly assumed their place among the classes. With Tom Scanlon, Senior President, guiding their initial step forward, the fledglings held their first class meeting and elected officers. Competition for the positions of leadership brought out a fine array of candidates who took the rostrum and proclaimed their several platforms. All were eager that Freshmen should no longer be the butt of ridicule and waxed wroth on their downtrodden state. The election brought the following defenders of the green into office: President, Joseph A. Comber; Vice President, Alexander L. Lashway; Secretary, William B. Cadogan; Treasurer, William H. Daly; Representative to Student A. A. Council, John J. Lyons. Fr. O'Brien, the great freshman agitator, advised the class as to the best method of attack in its fight for recognition. He warned of the danger of sactionalism...

Feature Course in Administration Opportunity for Future Business Men Of unusual interest to Boston College students is the comprehensive course on Business Administration arranged for the second term. The course will start Wednesday, February 4th, with two lectures a week, Wednesdays and Fridays. The 16 lectures will be by two Boston College graduates, James J. Cotter, 1911, now assistant manager of the F. P. O'Connor Co., 157 Tremont St., Boston, formerly manager of the Tomer Advertising Agency, and James E. Gibbons, 1912, accountant, New England Telephone and Telegraph Co., formerly with the American Telephone and Telegraph Co. in New York. The course has been prepared especially to enable our graduates to over come the difficulties that face the B. C. man when he enters business life. The business men who are preparing the course know what the B. C. man is up against and what he needs. From their own experience, they found that Boston College men are liable to spend years flounde...

The Case with Harvard [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 January 1920
The Case with Harvard Several articles in the Boston papers last week made statements very wide of the facts relative to the proposed Track Meet between B. C. and Harvard. We submit here a simple bill of the facts. After the splendid showing that the B. C. Team made in the Stadium, Mr. Moore of Harvard intimated that the game had been such a success that in all probability B. C. would be given a later date on the Harvard Schedule next year. Captain Murray was enthusiastic and voiced his unqualified enthusiasm as well as that of his team-mates to one of the B. C. Faculty, and expressed in no uncertain terms the sporting right that the College on the Heights had earned of being on the Harvard Schedule next year. This sentiment was clearly reflected in all the daily papers for the week ensuing. But the weeks slipped by and a subtle change'seemed to come over the governing Athletic authorities at Cambridge. Finally the Harvard Schedule appeared and Boston College was not on it. True eno...
"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 January 1920
"As We See It" By Bosco The YD ought to b9 thankful B. C. was lined up on the right side in the late war. Speaking of hockey it is said that "Luke" Urban is the most elusive goal-tender in the game. In practice the other night "Luke" was not hit once — everything went by. Notice the "BANG" in the Soph. Smoker Announcement? Maybe they will serve up trick cigars. That some of the clocks have been in a state of suspended animation for several weeks is a tribute to the powers of concentration of both professors and students. Had anyone for a moment raised his eyes from his books, the trouble would certainly have been noticed and remedied. —Certainly. The Sophs wish to announce that Freshmen attending their Smoker will be required to present a note from Ma-Ma before they will be given cigarettes. This is to safeguard the health and habits of the children. Speaking of "lost arts" — what about the gentle art of arriving at Ye Portals of Learning at 9.30. Signor Boyle states that it is no l...
Track Fans Jubilant B. C. Flyers Clock in Record Time in Practice [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 January 1920
Track Fans Jubilant B. C. Flyers Clock in Record Time in Practice The indoor track Sanson should be the greatest ever in the history of B. C. With such a stellar collection of performers, Coach Ryder should develop a championship relay team. Capt. Dempsey heads a list of flyers which includes Jake Driscoll, the peerless 440 man, and Billy Nolan, who was an interscholastic chamo last year. Phil Corrigan, Walter Downey, Kelly and Dugan turn in no mean performances and the splinters will fly until the final selection is made. Every man on the squad is enthusiastically anticipating a revival of iiterest in track. Records are being kept every day of the time made in the board track. Great promise is being displayed by the new candidates. The high jumpers are working out in the gym. It is to be regretted that the Alumni Board could not sanction Harvard's proposed Triangular Meet, with Tech as the third" team in the winning. Certainly the wearers of the college spangles desire the stronges...
Baseball Coach Selected Dr. David J. White Appointed [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 January 1920
Baseball Coach Selected Dr. David J. White Appointed At a meeting of the Graduate Athletic Board, held Tuesday, January 6th, Dr. Dave White, assistant coach of last fall's football team, was appointed coach of the baseball team for the coming season. The selection of a coach for baseball has been hanging fire for some time and the appointment of Dr. White came as a surprise, in view of the fact that he had not been prominently mentioned as a candidate for the position. The new coach is a graduate of Georgetown University, and was quite prominent while at that institution, being pitcher on the baseball team, and fullback on the football team, at both of which sports he was a star. He also played at Exeter where he prepared for college. Upon obtaining his degree he twirled for the Giants and until a physical injury made it impossible for him to continue in big league ball then settled down to the practice of his profession. The outlook for a championship team is very rosy, with six of...

CENTRAL B.C. CLUB Obstacle of Distance Overcome On Thursday, December 18, 1919, a meeting was held in the Fulton Room for the purpose of forming a Boston College Club in Central Massachusetts. Students were present from Worcester, Marlboro, Framingham, Natick and surrounding towns. None of these cities or towns can boast of enough students and alumni of Boston College to form a local club so the plan was conceived of having a central club for the present. The officers elected are: John J. Wardell '20, of Natick, President; Charles G. McGill '20, of Marlboro, Vice Fresident; David F. Mullen '22, of Framingham, Secretary; Salmon '21,j of Southboro, Treasurer. The club plans a meeting in the near future of all students and alumni in the section for the purpose of making plans for the coming season. As Framingham is the mest central town in the section,all n eetings and social functions will probably take place there.
