WOBURN B.C. CLUB Dance Proceeds for Seniors [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 22 January 1920
WOBURN B.C. CLUB Dance Proceeds for Seniors For the first time in the history of the city, Woburn has a real Boston College Club. Prior to the war, the number of B. C. men in Woburn was not sufficient to form a representative organization. This year found enough sons of Alma Mater to found a club which will be a credit not only to B. C. but to the city as well. The club held its first meeting in October and elected the following men to direct its destinies for the year 1919-1920: John R. Joyce '19, president; Philip D. Shea '20, vice-presi-dent; Edward J. O'Connor '21, treasurer; and Bernard J. Winn, secretary. Extensive plans are being made for a Grand Ball to be conducted during the early part of February. The members are working to make this one of the greatest social events of the season. Many novelties will be introduced, during the evening. The feature of the affair is that the entire returns are to be donated to the Senior Class to be used for Commencement Week expenses., The...
FOOTBALL BANQUET Royal Celebration for Team [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 22 January 1920
FOOTBALL BANQUET Royal Celebration for Team There is no doubt in the minds of the men of the football team that we have the most active, loyal and peppery body of alumni that ever called a College Alma Mater. From the first kickoff, when Toast-master-Referee Nugent gave the signal, till the final rush, never did a happier or more enthusiastic gathering fete a football team. We don't intend to go into details. You have read the account in the daily papers but we must take this opportunity to thank the alumni for the team. It is regrettable that that student body which found means to journey to Yale, and which viewed the West Point fame in spite of widespread financial embarrassment, were deprived of the chance of joining in the celebration. Not a moment during the evening was given over to matters of a too serious nature. The atmosphere _ was charged with electric spirit. Perhaps the finest bit of loyalty was shown by the presence of Mr. Doyle and Mr. Alex Rourke of New York. Both ve...

FRESHMAN SOCIAL GREAT SUCCESS Members of AH Sections Unite in Great Gathering at the Heights Yesterday afternoon arid evening members of all the various Freshman classes gathered for the first great social of the year. It was an event unique in collegiate activity at the Heights, and important because it set a precedent for a distinctive custom to be followed hereafter.

SELF RESTRAINT [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 22 January 1920
SELF RESTRAINT Self restraint has always been considered a necessary attribute of the cultured and welleducated gentleman. It is too often lacking in the behaviour of some of the students here at the Heights. The absence of the quality is evident in the lecture-room, about the college and in localities abroad when the Boston College man more certainly than at other times should be most observant of the rules and conventions prescribed for correct manly bearing. Continued conversation during a lecture hardly contributes to that habitual attitude of respect due the professor on the part of the student. Free and easy conduct on the part of even a small percentage of the student body, in the daily transit to and from college, will easily establish for the whole body a most unenviable reputation. Cardinal Newman defined a gentleman in terms of self restraint; add knowledge and we have a definition of the scholar. It is not a slight thing and in the days of our growth the reputation of th...
Intercollegiate Debates Western University Seeks Contest with Fulton [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 22 January 1920
Intercollegiate Debates Western University Seeks Contest with Fulton The resumption of Intercollegiate debating at B. C. so abruptly interrupted by the late war, is due for a speedy and complete recovery. Already communications from distant colleges are at hand, seeking engagements either at home or in our territory. Prominent among these is a newcomer into our midst, the far-off University of Detroit. The Westerners have expressed a strong desire to meet a debating team from the East and have written to B. C. principally because, as they undoubtedly have known, we have time and again established our debating supremacy in contests with various Eastern colleges. From their letter, the secretary of the Fulton informs us, they seem anxious to try conclusions with a B. C. team in preference to any of the other colleges in our vicinity. The offer will be given serious consideration. Fordham has also requested our approval as a member of a triangular team to consist of Holy Cross, Fordham...
"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 22 January 1920
"As We See It" By Bosco Congratulations "Lukie." Luke is sure to be a good captain. He has the knack of leading. You'd say so if you saw that Georgetown bunch follow him to the goal-line. What about inter-class competition. It has been brought to our attention that several of the upper class men purchase milk in the College lunch room. We were under the impression that this form of nourishment was provided solely for Freshmen. Won't even the eloquence of Mulligan move the clocks? Don't be moved to pity if you see one of our present Seniors swinging a pick next summer. Doubtless many of the class will wish to supplement their course in Geology with some private research. Follow the crowds to the City Club. Mid-years ahead. We would like to know who poses for Roßrawley's "war posters." What inter-class hockey competition really needs is some sort of an inter-classsport committee to back it and similar interclass activity. Nothing will succeed without organization.
Urban Made Captain Luke will Pilot Eleven [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 22 January 1920
Urban Made Captain Luke will Pilot Eleven When the lettermen in football retired from the Banquet Hall in the midst of festivities at the City Club for the purpose of electing a leader for 1920, there was little doubt as to the man most deserving of the honor. It was no surprise, therefore when a moment later the noisy grid artists re-entered with Luke riding high. The choice was unanimous. Louis J. Urban, as he signs his checks, is a native of Fall River. Strangely enough, this has interfered in no way with his rise in the athletic world, nee his entrance at B. C. his career has been crammed with activity. His versatility covers all lines, including baseball, basketball, swimming and "golf." In hockey he is a consistent rooter. When interviewed by a representative of The Heights he gave vent to his indignation at the presence of nails in the seats of the Fulton Room. Questioned about prospects for next season, Mr. Urban said "Yes." On the strength of that, 1920 should be a winner.<...
Basketball Notes [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 22 January 1920
Basketball Notes Acting Manager Kirby of Basketball is making arrangements for use? of a hall for home games. Since St. Mary's in Cambridge was transformed into a moving-picture house, the team has been without a home floor. Posse Gym. or the Somerville High Gym. may be obtained. Loss of Saturday's game with the Connecticut Aggies was due to the many fouls called on the visitors, as the B. C. boys had been used to playing under the professional rules and had to play the game under amateur regulations. Score was Connecticut Aggies 55, Boston College 13. Next game is with New Hampshire State at Durham, N. H., Saturday evening.
M.A.C.5; B.C.4 Plenty Speed and Stickwork [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 22 January 1920
M.A.C.5; B.C.4 Plenty Speed and Stickwork The hockey team caught a Tartar on Saturday last when it ran into the speedy M. A. C. team and after 54 minutes of stubborn play, was defeated sto 4. The Aggies brought to the Heights a team that should rank with the best of the year, fine players, well coached and in remarkable condition. Two of their forwards, McCarthy and Leavitt, gave the spectators an exhibition of wing playing as it should be played, and to their fine work about the Boston net and in checking back on the rushes of our forwards the hostile victory was directly due. Coach Falvey was worried because of the illness of two of his stars, Capt. Frank Morrissey and Leo Hughes, but both were able to start the game. The two veterans were greatly fortified by the strong defensive work of Len Morrissey at Point. It required two overt me periods and a sudden death period lasting 2 1-2 minutes to gain a decision. The Aggies went to the fore early in the game and were leading at the ...
Pete Tells the World ALL 100 PER CENTERS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 22 January 1920
Pete Tells the World ALL 100 PER CENTERS We have heard much said relative to the remarkable prowess of the 1919 eleven, but Pete Walker would have you know that he has a few garlands to hang. List to Pete. "No man has more appreciation for that team, than I. I have seen those players take their knocks, and come up for more and I want to say that I consider it a privilege to have been associated with them. They have always got the best that I had to give them. For those of the team who are graduating, it is my wish that success and prosperity greet them all through life. I know that they will conquer the obstacles of the world just as they did those of the gridiron."

Heads Fall at Fulton Drastic Reorganization of the Society [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 22 January 1920
Heads Fall at Fulton Drastic Reorganization of the Society Heads fell as fast last Friday in 'the' Fulton as after the city elections. Acting on the friendly criticism voiced in The Heights drastic reorganization of the Fulton Debating Society is speedily being effected. Members in arrears in dues, and lax in attendance, have summarily been dropped. Though some of the best speakers are gone, it is felt that the traditions of the Fulton can best be maintained by interested and hard-working members. For after all the orators and debaters who built up the high standards of the society were not the most talented men in the college, but gained their eloquence and powers by unflagging interest and hard work. Prize debate of the society will be held at the Heights Friday, February 20. Trials will be held on Wednesday, with Rev. Father Becker, Mr. Devereux, and Mr. Masterson as judges. Arrangements are being made for a triangular debate with Holy Cross and Fordham early this Spring. Debate ...
