FAVORITE SPORTS Morgan Ryan [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 April 1921
FAVORITE SPORTS Morgan Ryan My favorite sport is tossing four minute ovations from the lunch-room counters. I am so proficient in the art of juggling the sesquipedaha verba that I can rip through a four minute speech in twenty minutes. One must orate if one would know real happiness. One does not realize wiiat a feeling of relief comes to one when one has eased an oration off one's diaphragm. It develops all the muscles —the arm and ear muscles in receiving the leg muscles in escaping the vulgar rabble, who fail to understand one. My next favorite sport 's strolling among the wild waves on the beach, where all the nevsboys call me Morgan.

GREATER COOPERATION [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 April 1921
GREATER COOPERATION In spite of the fact that the General Committee of the Drive is receiving hundreds of offers of assistance from every part of the Archdiocese, we should not feel that the work is complete. We have co-oper-ation from nearly every one in Greater Boston, but there is need of even greater cc-operation. Wg nave asked the students of Boston College to co-operate during the intensive period by taking part in various activities of the student body We have asked for volunteers for 'four minute speakers"—we have requested the classes of the college to stage vjiiou.? '•stunts." and, in general, the response to the appeal has been gratifying. We are now requesting your co-operation in another field. First of all we must remember that there are over a million people to be interviewed during the intensive period of the Drive. It has been estimated that in order to accomplish this work expeditiously, it is necessary that we have at least four thousand workers on the various Par...
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 April 1921
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION Babson's Statistical Bureau sends out a letter to the business men of the country which we take the liberty of quoting in full. "The need of the hour is not more factories or materials, not more railroads or steamships, not more armies or more navies, but rather more education based on the plain teachings of Jesus. The prosperity of our country depends on the motives and purposes of the people. These motives and purposes are directed in the right course only through religion. Legislation, bounties, or force are of no avail in determining man's attitude toward life. Harmony at home and peace with the world will only be determined in the same way. "Religion, like everything else of value, must be taught. It is possible to get more religion in industry and business only thru the development of Christian education and leadership. With the forces of evil backed by men and money, systematically organized to destroy, we must back with men and money all campaigns for Chr...
FAIR ENOUGH! [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 April 1921
FAIR ENOUGH! Editor of THE HEIGHTS: Realizing your great influence in college affairs, knowing that your opinions are received with the great. est respect (though they may be subsequently discarded), I, as a Sophomore, with fond dreams of the future, request, beg and humbly beseech you to save from disgrace, the present Sophomore class. As you probably know, every Junior must settle to the satisfaction of the world, some great philosophical question whose solution was despaired of by Plato, Socrates, Spinoza and former Juniors. Here is the trouble. The present Junior class insists on settling ALL the difficulties of the various philosophical principles. They will leave nothing for the present Sophomore class to settle. Kindly ask the Junior class through your paper (if they have paid their subscriptions) to leave a few problems for us to solve. Thus you will save us from the shame of having to face a world without having contributed anything to the already existing confusion. Yours ...
AN APPETIZER [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 April 1921
AN APPETIZER The sorrowful scene which we saw enacted on Alumni Field last Saturday was educational. We have some vague idea of how our Yale brethren felt after the slaughter in the Bowl. Defeat gives one an appetite for victory. Saturday's appetizer was sufficient to last for the rest of the season. Let's hope it does. Having used as much spice as the situation demands, we will remove the stopper from the oil bottle and soothe a few of the sore spots caused by B. U.'s careless handling of our ball team. It is absurd to think that our team was playing up to its possibilities throughout the game. In the first inning they pasted the pellet to all points of the horizon. In the third inning our athletes started to blow. Compared to the "blow" they staged, a Texas tornado would be a gentle zephyr. We can think of no adequate explanation for what happened. Any team is liable to have an off day. It appears that ours had a whole week of them all at once. Beginning right away, our ball team ...

That the sociable Mr. Breau has been taking "Gene" Sullivan for a ride on his one-armed chair dming psychology. That "Jim" Rooney has been beating all comers over the hurdles by an Adam's apple. That "Jim" has now been matched to race "Joe" Pate. "Joe" says he'll stick out his tongue and win by a lap. That "Gold Brick" must have advanced a point. The "Boy Broker" offered to treat us to a soda. That Michael Donovan is the custodian of the lighted lamp in the ...

THE LAST SHOT or THE EMPTY NEEDLE (Ode to a Boxing Glove) [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 April 1921
THE LAST SHOT or THE EMPTY NEEDLE (Ode to a Boxing Glove) In a Bowery Lunchcart, looking sad and glum. Chewing a strip of pig-iron, Sat a Bowery bum. His hair was white As snow (around a railroad station). It was eleven on Christmas morning, He was sitting all alone, The dawn had stopped its dawning, There w r as only five at home (last night). He looked to the left, he looked to the right He looked behind and before, He looked above, he looked below Then he stopped looking. * * * * Then, I trow, the birds do sing, And flutter in the trees, I hear the angry Church-Bells ring, And frighten the singing bees. When I left home I thought I was, A cuckoo slick and sweet. But 10, the years have taught me I'm nothing but a beat. Now all you gentle maidens, Take a tip from me Never search for Pollywogs, On the top of any tree. MORAL: Use no Hooks. Don't walk on the Grass. Drink Budweiser, Patronize our advertisers. Join the L. C.
TRIALS FOR ANNUAL OUTDOOR PAGEANT HELD Cast to be Announced in a Few Days [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 April 1921
TRIALS FOR ANNUAL OUTDOOR PAGEANT HELD Cast to be Announced in a Few Days On Wednesday af;ernoon, April U, trials for the coming outdoor Pageant were held in the Assembly Hall. Many ambitious actors were present and the competition was so keen that Rev. Father Murphy, S. J., Faculty Director of Dramatics, says that he is having difficulty in selecting the cast. Owing to the diversity c? characters in "As You Like It," many new faces will be seen at the performance of this play during Commencement week. Rehearsals will start just as sooi. as a definite cast has been selected. Meanwhile the Director is busy with the adaptaton of "As You Like It." The training of the cast and the production of the play will be under the direction of Fr. Murphy who has supervised Dramatics at Boston College for many years.
