THE LENTEN COURSE OF THE PHILOMATHEIA CLUB OPENS Er. Stinson Lectures. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 17 February 1921
THE LENTEN COURSE OF THE PHILOMATHEIA CLUB OPENS Er. Stinson Lectures. On last Friday afternoon, Feb. 11th, the Lenten Lecture Course to be given uner the auspices of the Philomatheia Club was begun. Despite the wretched weather, a large number of the club members were present to hear Fr. Stinson speak on "Our Varying Selves." After narrating some interesting and amusing facts about the money value placed on the human body, the lecturer spoke of the mysteriousness of our present being. We are constantly playing a part. Scarcely ever do we show our true selves. And yet under our acting, we are always conscious that there is within us a true abiding self, which is our real treasure. We know, too, that this abiding self is throned to pass judgment on each and every act of ours. Life's Great Task. "The care of true inner self is our life's great task. And to cultivate it as we should, there is need of going apart from 'the madding crowd's ignoble strife.' We must live with our own thoug...

BOSTON NEWSPAPER MAN TALKS TO CLASS OF JOURNALISM [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 17 February 1921
BOSTON NEWSPAPER MAN TALKS TO CLASS OF JOURNALISM Mr. Reedy, a member of the staff of the Boston Globe, spoke to the class of journalism last Thursday. Mr. Reedy stressed the value of telegraphy in newspaper work and related many personal experiences to prove his assertion. He explained the work of the men in the telegraph department of a newspaper, and said that the requirements of a good telegrapher are far from easy. Mr. Reedy's talk was certainly one of the most profitable and interesting that the class has heard. His pleasing diction and the smooth flow of his words rendered what he had to say all the more attractive.

WASHINGTON, WE STILL HONOR YOU! [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 17 February 1921
WASHINGTON, WE STILL HONOR YOU! It is customary at about this date every year to make some remarks anent the Father of Our Country and the lessons which can be drawn from the study of his life and character. In saying our little say we Willi avoid reference to the cherry tree and the legend concerning George's inordinate aversion to fabrication. Washington's claim to real fame fortunately does not rest on these trivialities. The approach of Washington's Birthday makes us wonder how his policies would be received by a certain coterie of modern Tories. These gentlemen ooze soothing syrup as they labor for a "spirit of friendship" between America and the "Mother Country"—England. They spend large sums of money in educating the public to a proper appreciation of our debt to "our English cousins." These self-constituted saviours of America have shown by their current insolence that they would undoubtedly have the temerity to undertake the education of our first President were he alive to...
TO THE BASEBALL CANDIDATES Verbum sap. sat. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 17 February 1921
TO THE BASEBALL CANDIDATES Verbum sap. sat. In a few months the athletic eyes of the country will be focused upon you to see if you can uphold the prowess of this institution as it has been upheld in the sport world byfootball, basketball, and track teams. You are going to be called upon to face the strongest teams of the east, and at a time when your Alma Mater will be appealing to her Alumni and friends for a Greater Boston College. What a disappointment it will be to find representing us on the diamond at that time an aggregation such as we saw in the not far distant past. If we were to look for the reasons for our unsuccessful teams we would find thfet the machines, although they had and boasted stars among them, lacked that team play which makes a perfect machine in unison and rhythm—that they did not play heads up baseball, and that they were teams of individuals and not working as an organization. Cliques and players with previous reputations have proved detrimental to our ba...
"SOME OLD THINGS" (Regrets to 0. W. Holmes) [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 17 February 1921
"SOME OLD THINGS" (Regrets to 0. W. Holmes) There is no place like the old place, Where I passed my boyhood days; My memory ever shall return, To its fields and the sun's warm rays. I see it now! the low gray house, The grape vine o'er the door; The plain red barn, and high elm trees, The charms that gleam no more. If only I could now return. To the fields of nodding flowers; To the meadows where the insects hum. While the brook sings on by hours, I'd build a lonely little hut, Upon the neighboring hill: Where I could view this paradise, ■ And keep a little still. M. F. . There is no verse like the old verse, When the bards and songs were few, When the beauty of Homer was chanted, And the deeds of heroes were new. Those noble masterpieces From molten hearts were fused, But now the long, long epics, Are refused but not perused. C. H. B. There are no songs like the old songs, Simple though magic in word, With sweetest-sounding melodies Like the trillings of a bird. But now to rag-time...
BY THE WAY [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 17 February 1921
BY THE WAY What makes a man keep up the fight For fame and honor, worth and right, When all ahout is black as night? Ambition. What brings that look of horror to The faces of those students who Were never known to feel so blue? Conditions. He who tries and does not pass Will live to join another class; But he who in his mid-year "flunks," Must come across with five whole "plunks."

SCIENCE DEPARTMENT Modern Surgery—A Perfect Man (By the Staff Deporter) [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 17 February 1921
SCIENCE DEPARTMENT Modern Surgery—A Perfect Man (By the Staff Deporter) In a recent report of the Surgeons Association of Manhattan, attention is called to the advances which have been made in the science namely the joining of broken ribs by means of copper bolts, replacement of fractured skulls with silver plates, etc. Consequently, we have compiled a list of conveniences which would eliminate all surgery on the human form—in other words, we have evolved a perfect man. Specifications are as follows. SKXLL: Should be an alloy of rhubidium and argon in the shape of the east portico of the cocoanut shell, and equipped with lid which will be held in place by an ornamental gutter of a delicate shade of pink (colors optional), which will also serve as a lightning rod in thunder storms. The lid will be locked with a Yale lock similar to that used on cologne bottles, padded cells and antique pitchforks. By this method the brain can be scoured with Pyrene at least once a month. A liberal us...
FR. DONNELLY'S POEM ON MacSWINEY HAS BEEN SET TO MUSIC Old Irish Melody:—"An Dramhan Donn," Selected. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 17 February 1921
FR. DONNELLY'S POEM ON MacSWINEY HAS BEEN SET TO MUSIC Old Irish Melody:—"An Dramhan Donn," Selected. The following poem pritten by Fi\ Donnelly, S. J., upon the occasion of Lord Mayor MacSwiney's death, has been set to the music of the old Irish Melody, "An Dramhan Bonn." The Tune is the same as that of "Danny Boy." He Taught Us How To Die. In flaming fight when man his man is facing, And down the line ten thousand madly cheer, When thro' the veins the blood goes hotly racing, Then death forgotten loses all its fear. But let the strife thro' months of anguish lengthen, And ;ill be silence save our lonely sigh, He with us, God. our frightened souls to strengthen, 'Twas so MacSwiney taught us how to die. Oh. all too swift was Barry's sacred scaffold. And swift the guns their gifts to Plunkett sped. And hurried graves have often tyrants baffled. When Ireland called to fame her patriot dead. But here was one who clung to death's embraces. Who drop by drop let all his life go by:— Dark ...

BROSNAHAN OPPOSES OPEN SHOP Favors Its Abolition. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 17 February 1921
BROSNAHAN OPPOSES OPEN SHOP Favors Its Abolition. Labor unions and their vast benefits to the laboring class were strongly upheld at last week's meeting of the Brosnahan. The question: "Resolved: that the Open Shop should be abolished" was discussed from all angles. Messrs. Cunny and Carroll, upholding the Affirmative found it difficult to advocate the open shop, and their arguments seemed to rest wholly on some of the, abuses which they claimed have resulted from labor unions. Their arguments were weak and easily overcome. Messrs. Pennessy and Sheehy offered many lengthy arguments why the open shop should be abolished, their chief argument being the evil results of open shops upon the laboring class. Voting upon the merits of the question the society stood 16 to 12 in favor of abolishing the open shop. At tomorrow's meeting the interesting question: "Resolved: that Greek should be made optional in Jesuit Colleges," will be discussed.
