Rev. E. I. McDevitt, S. J. Dies at Georgetown President of Boston College 1890-94 [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 January 1920
Rev. E. I. McDevitt, S. J. Dies at Georgetown President of Boston College 1890-94 Last Monday morning, at the age of eighty years, the Reverend Edward I. Devitt, S. J., former President of Boston College from 1890-94, died at Georgetown University, after a brief illness. Father Devitt had been a Bostonian from his earliest years, passing the major period of his youth in the North End, and later on in the maturity of his priesthood returning to direct the destinies of Boston College. The progress of the college while not as meteoric then as now, was steady and constant under Father Devitt's administration. As a young man he pursued his classical studies at Holy Cross College, and in 1859 at the age of nineteen he was admitted into the society of Jesus. Only a few months ago he celebrated his sixtieth anniversary as a member of the Jesuit order and on that occasion received congratulations from his many friends. As a young professor he spent some time at Holy Cross College and later w...
FULTON TRIALS Seniors in Majority [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 January 1920
FULTON TRIALS Seniors in Majority The trials for the selection of speakers for the Prize Debate and the Intercolleg'a'es were held on Wednesday, Jan. 21, in the Fulton Room. Rivalry was intense and with twenty-five members eagerly striving for the honor to represent B. C. on the rostrum, selection was made very difficult. The final choice brought the following speakers to the fore: Edward L. Roddan, '20; Thomas F. McNamara, '20; Francis De Celles, '21 and Eugene Sullivan, '21 who will be contestants at the Fulton Prize Debate to take place sometime in February; RichCard S. McShane, '20 and Joseph F. Mulligan, '20 who will speak in the Intercollegiate Debate. The judges were Fr. Becker, Mr. Masterson and Mr. Devereaux. Eugene Sullivan made an exceptionally good showing in the recent Senior-Junior debate and to his clear presentation of arguments to the exclusion of any irrelevant matter, was due in no small measure the oratory of the Junior team. Mr. McNamara represented the Seniors ...
Lawrence B.C. Club [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 January 1920
Lawrence B.C. Club Prior to the year 1914, little was known around Lawrence of Boston College, unless we might conclude its whereabouts from its name. In that year Seniors from that city, John J. Hogan, Parrick Higehn and Timothy Gleason, end avored to boost the College by coidacting the first dance ever held in Lawrence under her name. The dance was successful in everyway and promised to be an annual event. The following year, however, John Hopkins was the only Lawrence Senior, and as the undertaking was too enormous for one individual to attempt, no dance was held. Instead Mr. Hopkins engaged the Glee Club which rendered a concert calling for instinted praise from the musical critics of the city. In 1916 the dance was resumed under the leadership of Joseph A. Mulvey, '17 and Francis J. Caffrey, '17, and was an unqualified success. A banquet was tendered to the Alumni and plans were made to help the College materially. All these well-intentioned plans were delayed by the war and th...

EDITORIAL Gratitude Versus Self-interest [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 January 1920
EDITORIAL Gratitude Versus Self-interest If we were speaking of poisoned wells we might mention in the same breath —absence from Sodality. This practice of cutting Sodality has become so general that the weekly attendance is nothing short of a disgrace. This is not a subject that can be treated with that usual quid pro quo attitude of the present day student. Did you ever consider that aside from leaving Mass on Sundays and going to confession occasionally something else is expected of you? It is a beautiful custom this devotion to Our Blessed Lady. It is one that is surrounded by the best traditions of the College, and yet, for some reason or for no excuse at all, you put it aside and fail to cement a friednship that is priceless. No one expects to get anything in the business world without an adequate return. What return do you offer for those countless favors you have enjoyed, due to her intercession. Is it too much to attend Sodality and give Her fifteen minutes of your time. In...
Cambridge Club Dinner Annual Gathering at Riverbank Court [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 January 1920
Cambridge Club Dinner Annual Gathering at Riverbank Court Cambridge Club, the mother of B. C. Clubs, as her members will impress upon you, held forth in their usual superb style last evening. The Rose Garden, Riverbank Court was the appointed place for the biggest meeting of the year. The meeting was called to order at 6 P. M. The chief business was the acceptance of many new members who were enrolled from among recent graduates and present students at B. C. At 6.30 a dinner was served. The evening was passed true to form and plans were discussed for future events by which the College will be given financial assistance. With workers of the type of Jack Atkinson and Francis J. Barnes whatever steps are taken are bound to turn out favorably. Since her organization in 1908, the Cambridge Club has again and again demonstrated its love for B. C. Perhaps the most noteworthy of such manifestation was the donation of the Fulton Room when the Arts Building was erected.
"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 January 1920
"As We See It" Have you noticed the epidemic of black ties raging in the Senior Class? Black ties plus pink shirts equals class but black ties sanas pink shirts equals ??? Chemistry up-to-date-Boyle's Law: "Get out of the boiler-room." Holy Cross .wants to run a long relay this year. Quite a novel way to stave off defeat for a few minutes. What are those strange things on the walls? They have the appearances of clocks, but they can't be —clocks move. Friday the thirteenth needn't be a blue day for you. Come to the Junior Smoker and add your puff to the cloud. The straw that fractured the dromedary's spinal column — war tax on Conditions. Have you a "little feudalism" in your home? Ask the one who wrote it. Some of the Eskimo students have struck upon an original scheme for clearing the grounds. This is the idea: Find a nice warm room, throw all the windows wide open and the heat will roll out and melt the snow. The unfortunates who had to come out Sunday morning are looking for the ...
TRACK. Brooklyn College Meet Saturday [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 January 1920
TRACK. Brooklyn College Meet Saturday On Saturday night the track team will open its indoor season, when it enters the Brooklyn College games at the Fourteenth Regiment Armory in Brooklyn. Every member of the squad has been working out daily, on the board track, under the supervision of Coach Jack Ryder since the Christmas holidays and consequently the squad as a whole is in the "pink". These games will afford us an opportunity to discover what a wonderful collection of track stars are representing us this year, and it is more than probable that some exceptionally fast times will be turned in, and a few surprises sprung by the "dark horses." The relay team which is to compete in the one mile invitation college relay will be picked from Capt. Dempsey, Jake Driscoll, Billy Nolan, Walter Downey, Andy Kelly, Joe Sullivan and Drugan. This event will probably be the prize attraction of the evening, as the teams entered include the best in the East, among others being Penn and Georgetown. ...
BOXING. Matter Under Consideration [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 January 1920
BOXING. Matter Under Consideration At a meeting of the Alumni Board and the Student Athletic Association on Thursday of last week, the question of making boxing a regular college sport was discussed. After some consideration it was decided to experiment with the "manly art" and the success of the new venture will depend on the enthusiasm displayed by the students. It was voted to secure the services of some competent boxing instructor and form classes among the students. At present competition will be among the various classes of the college, and matches with other colleges will not be taken on. Next year or as soon as the sport becomes definitely established, schedules will be arranged with other college teams. The action of the athletic boards in this matter is another example of the progressive action which has marked the meetings of the boards throughout the year, and is in line with the stand that has been taken in regard to boxing, by many of the colleges throughout the countr...

To-night at the Municipal Building it will sponsor a concert and dance scheduled to surpass all former club activities. Although but a few years have elapsed since the inception of the local club, it already enjoys wide spread prestige.

C. men residing in South Boston under one head, that they might become a recognized power in all matters scholastic. That success has been obtained is substantiated by the fact that membership has reached the half-century mark and enthusiasm runs high. The men in office in the present year are President John J. McMorrow; Vice-President Francis Lyons,; Treasurer, John J. Kirby; Secretary, P...
Thirtieth Anniversary at Fulton Celebration Planned [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 January 1920
Thirtieth Anniversary at Fulton Celebration Planned The Fulton Debating Society is now thirty years old. This anniversary will be recorded as a landmark of the society. Rev. Fr. Cox, S. J., moderator, was brought back to the college just when his presence was needed for the work of rejuvenation. President Richard McShane cooperated fully, with Dr. Cox and as a result the lost splendor of the society has been resurrected. The soporific effect of the war has been displaced by enthusiasm and now the college has promise of being represented by debating teams that will do justice to the great Leo Murray, Edward A. Sullivan, and other notable winners of the Fulton Medal. Today new officers will be elected to conduct the Fulton during the next term; and those elected will complete the plans formulated by Pres. McShane both for the Society's progress and for a banquet to be celebrated at the City Club in recognition of the Anniversary. A triangular debate with Fordham, Holy Cross and Boston...

DRAMATIC CLUB Dines at the Heights Musicale a Feature of the Gathering On Monday evening in the Assembly Hall of the Recitation Building, the Dramatic Club of the College inaugurated a program of social activities that bids fair to be a precedent, so keen was the enjoyment and satisfaction of all who attended. The festivities began promptly at six o'clock and the first number on the program was a banquet served by Caterer Wellington in his own inimitable and generous style. Between courses a quartette and a stringed orchestra entertained the diners. Among the guests of the evening were Chevalie Rodolfo Fornari, formerly of the Boston Opera Company and late of the Chicago Opera Company and Miss Geraldine Calla, the coloratura soprano. Both these celebrated artists gave a pleasure that was far beyond the anticipation of the club. Rodolfo Fornari sang the fanfarons of Figaro in a fine buffo manner. Mr. Fornari's ability to interpret was a bit of art that charmed his hearers, and the me...

J.; and Ignatius W. Cox, S. J., of the college faculty pronounced the solemn vows of their religious profession. The ceremony was very quietly performed in the presence of a few friends. The Mass of the Vows was said at the High Altar by the Rev. William J. Devlin, S. J., President of Boston College, who had been delegated by the General of the Society of Jeus, resident in Rome, as his special delegate to receive the profession of the three priests. The chapel was very tastfully decorated and those who were present were impressed with the extreme solemnity and simplicity of the ceremony.
