HAIL-CAMBRIDGE [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 February 1920
HAIL-CAMBRIDGE It is a widely recognized fact that all the B. C. Clubs that have sprung up of recent years are meeting unqualified success in spreading the name and fame of Alma Mater throughout the country. Behind it all we see that spirit of love and devotion of finest quality—a fitting tribute to our common benefactor. We have no intention of drawing comparisons, but it is most appropriate at this time to comment briefly on the B. C. sons of Cambridge. With the advantage of an early organization, the Cambridge Club gained immediate prominence. In its membership, besides the live students then attending classes, were alumni and friends who knew no halfway methods. The days of the Golden Jubilee and the olden field days always found Cambridge in readiness. Her contributions to the funds being raised were ever well above the quota. No' appeal could be raised at the College which would not echo across the Charles and be a clarion call for action in the ranks of Boston Collegians ther...
B. C. Night at Woburn [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 February 1920
B. C. Night at Woburn B. C. will own Woburn on Wednesday, Feb. 11, if the present indications are a fair basis on which to form a judgment. Very few cities have really displayed so much enthusiasm as has Woburn towards the function which the local B. C. Club is prepared to offer. City officials have expressed their approval of the activity manifested by the club members and are planning to be present. A newspaper campaign has been launched and the affair is well advertised throughout the surrounding cities. Woburn will be a transportation center of no mean proportions on that night. The several Catholic women's societies are displaying great interest and much credit is due them for their kind efforts. The committee has arranged for a concert calculated to please the most exacting. The dance itslef will be the big attraction. The burden of the work has been accomplished by two men at present in the College, who but recently returned from France. Phil Shea of Senior, and Jack Shaughne...
"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 February 1920
"As We See It" By Bosco Tempus has not been fugiting freely for the last few months. Once more —whassamatter with the clocks? The interclass hockey tournament was a whirlwind affair. Sophomore has entered the most artistic challenge and will be awarded the cup. Puzzle: Find the modest, shrinking student who did not knock every exam "out a window." It's going to cost one dollar per each to repair the windows. Our idea of nothing at all, at all —Rob Brawley dashing down the drive at 2:30. Did you see him? There is absolutely no excuse for being late hereafter. Both of the Lake St. cars have been equipped with new trolley ropes. "Ed" O'Brien is the only man on the hockey team that didn't score on the recent trip. We often wondered why goaltenders don't wear spiked shoes instead of skates. Last chance to smoke before you swear off for the first three days of Lent. Beat the big Junior Smoker next Friday night. Cubebs will be provided for beginners. Bring your friends.

B. A. A. GAMES Saturday Night Watch Our Flyers [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 February 1920
B. A. A. GAMES Saturday Night Watch Our Flyers Despite the defeat of our relay tekm in the Brooklyn games Sat. night, we are all looking forward to the meeting with our ancient and honorable rival, Holy Cross, at the B. A. A. games tomorrow night. In the recent defeat the team was a victim of circumstances, and if these could have been illiminated the team would have made a much better showing. The members of the team arrived in New York at 7 o' clock Sat. night, and rushing over to Brooklyn, donned their suits, and entered the race without having had anything to eat since morning. In view of these circumstances the team should be given praise for the creditable showing it made. However tomorrow night things will be different, and after a stiff week's work Coach Ryder expects some very good parformances. Holy Cross consented to run in the 390 yd. relay, and a most interesting race should result, which we all expect to culminate in another B. C. victory. Coach Ryder has entered 19 me...
HOCKEY Successful Trip [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 February 1920
HOCKEY Successful Trip The hockey team made its first trip of the season during the past week-end and came home with two scalps hanging at its belt, in consequence of two decisive victories. The team showed the result of Coach Falvey's work and gegins to loom up as one of the best college hockey teams hereabouts. The lack of team play which was so conspicuous at the first of the season has entirely disappeared. On Saturday afternoon the team met West Point at the Plains, and proved to be vastly superior. In the first half the only score was made by Capt. Frank Morrissey two minutes after the opening whistle, while in the second half he again scored. In fact the game was featured by the fine all around work of Capt. Morrissey. In the second half, despite the zero weather, our team made it very hot for the Army goal-tend, who must have thought he was facing a nest of machine guns. In this half the game was clinched when Capt. Morrissey, Healey, Hughes and Garrity each scored with a we...
BASKETBALL Comes to Life Fitz and Luke Back [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 February 1920
BASKETBALL Comes to Life Fitz and Luke Back Much unfavorable comment has been provoked by the poor showing of the basketball team. Mr. Undergraduate, who is ever inclined to knock first and listen to explanations after, found no reason to explain why the exponents of the indoor game should not be on a par with the leaders in other sports. Considering the difficulties under which the basketball men labored, there is cause for wonderment that the sport managed to keep alive. With no permanent practice floor, no coach and no letter attached to the sport, we must admire those worthy athletes who still had spirit enough to play the game. Prospects are looking up now. With the sanction of the Athletic Board basketball is now a major sport. Luke Urban, the newly appointed coach, is one of the original than— whomers. Besides —Fitz and Luke are playing now and the bell is generally in flight toward the enemy's basket. The rejuvenated energy of the "five" had a chance for display recently whe...
Fulton Elections [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 February 1920
Fulton Elections On Friday, Jan. 30, the Fulton Debating Society held its regular semi-annual elections. The following men were chosen to lead the society for the second term. Pres. Elias F. Shannon. Vice-Pres. Raymond F. Riley. Sec. John J. Wardell. Treas. John J. Lane. Censor Joseph F. Mulligan. In accepting the chair, the new president declared his intention of conducting the society's activities along those successful lines which have always made membership in the Fulton the ambition of majority of the student body. Fulton debaters have no easy work assigned to them. Soon they will be called on to meet some of the finest debaters in the collegiate world. B. C. has never had occasion to apologize for the work of her representatives and the Fulton leaders realize the traditions they must keep sacred. We look confidently for success in all our debates as the worth of our speakers is not a matter of conjecture.

Marquette Banquet Mr. Dorsey Donates Medal On last Monday evening, Fev. 2, the Boston City Club was the scene of the annual banquet of the Marquette Debating Society. The affair was fully as lively as in former years. Pres. H. E. Foley pried the lid off, extending a welcome to the members and guests, and introducing the toast master, J. Ryan, '22. John J. Consodine, '22, gave a very interesting prophecy, full of wit and humor. Charles A. Tucker and Francis A. Magennis both offered sage advice. Dan McSweeny and Jim Doyle produced a skit productive of much laughter. Musical entertainment was ably supplied by George Grant at the piano, James Druggan and Nat Hasenfus, violinists.

Junior Smoker To-night Babe Ruth Will be on Hand [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 February 1920
Junior Smoker To-night Babe Ruth Will be on Hand Battering Babe Ruth, recently returned from the Golden West is expected to make his next public appearance on the platform of the City Club Auditorium this evening when he will take part in an athletic smoke-talk, which will be staged under the auspices of the 1921 class of Boston College. The Junior committee has a tentative list of speakers which includes Senator David I.Walsh, General Edwards and others, but Boston's one-time Battering Babe will be the "feature" performer. The Home Run King may air his views of the recent big deal in which he played such an important but undesirable part. Arrangements have been made to accommodate a capacity house as it is expected a large gathering of the undergraduates will be on hand. The smoker has been widely advertized among the Alumni and the indications point to a grand re-union of the "Old Boys."
B.C. Defeats R.I. State [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 February 1920
B.C. Defeats R.I. State By smooth and fast playing Capt. Jerry Mahoney's five showed R. I. State regular B. C. skill in letting them down with 25-12 score. B. C. plays B. U. again next Saturday, probably at Normal School Gym. B. U. is a far different team from the one B. C. licked before, for now all departments of the university instead of only the Law School are eligible for membership. It is to be urged that the entire school turn out to support the team, as B. U. is a formidable adversary, and the game promises to be a thriller.
FULTON EMBARKS ON SECOND TERM Notable Record of Retiring President [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 February 1920
FULTON EMBARKS ON SECOND TERM Notable Record of Retiring President Today, Elias F. Shamon, '20 will open the first session of the Fulton Debating Society in the capacity of president. At the last meeting of the Fulton following the annual mid-year elections, President Richard S. McShane resigned the gavel to his successor. The presidency of Mr. McShane is remarkable as marking the revival of the old spirit that made the society famous. He has led an extraordinary debating career from his initiation in the art as a member of the McElroy Debating Society of the High School and his advancement to the Bapst Society of the upper classes of the younger school. Thence he joined the Marquette in his Freshman year and as a Junior became enrolled as a member of the Fulton. No one in the past has achieved equal honors with him and though the future may produce a rival there can be no surpassing his record. Of all societies Richard McShane has been president and in each, with his first effort, ...
