Boston College Snowed Under Storm Disrupts Class Schedule [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 February 1920
Boston College Snowed Under Storm Disrupts Class Schedule On Thursday and Friday of last week, Boston College men were subjected to a new experience. Snow, sleet and hail got in their work with such telling effect that it was impossible to consider the holding of classes because of the blockading drifts which paralyzed all transit. At the usual hour on Thursday, Park Street was alive with B. C. students and the accustomed delay in Lake St. car service occurred. Finally after three quarters of an hour had elapsed, came cars bearing the long awaited signs and soon they were bucking the snow banks, blowing out fuses and acting in every way as Lake St. cars are expected, to act. Contrary to anticipation, they finally discharged their human cargo into a wilderness of white, and in the swirling, driving blizzard, a jumbled mass of arms and legs nailed their way to shelter under the shed. Speculation began as to the advisability of facing the long climb up the hill through the unbroken roa...

Sane Electivism [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 February 1920
Sane Electivism A new feature has been introduced in the form of a course in Business Administration, which is a welcome addition to the curriculum. It has always been a source of regret with those students who intended to follow up business as a life work that there was no constructive or semi-technical business program offered them, which could be taken up in conjunction with the prescribed Philosophical and literary studies. Now this absence seems to have been adequately remedied and the upper-classmen are eager to receive this preliminary training. The course as at present constituted is only for students who are already in course and is under the direction of two Boston College men who have had abundant experience in practical business life. We consider ourselves very fortunate' in securing the services of Mr. James Cotter and Mr. James Gibbons. The introduction of the present course under the existing system solves a difficulty handsomely. Without detriment to our philosophica...

Marquette Getting Up Steam Speaking Tours Being Planned The Marquette Debating Society begins its second term this afternoon with the election of new officers. During the past term Henry E. Foley, president, conducted the society successfully, assisted by Charles A. Tucker, vice-president; Francis E. Magennis, secretarytreasurer, and Francis J. Turnbull, sergeant-at-arms. Mutu bull, sergeant-at-arms. Mutual satisfaction was expressed by officers and associates. Two weeks hence the trials for places on the debating team of the society will be held, and those who merit selection will appear in the annual prize debate and in collegiate competition.

"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 February 1920
"As We See It" By Bosco No, that isn't a lunch cart at the College entrance on Commonwealth Avenue; it's the Boston Rapid Transit Limited. Yes, been "limited" for the past week. And, by the way, if you are anxious to get on time at 9:30, hop on the old caboose, and stay on and you'll be on time to-morrow morning. One of the evidences of the H. C.L. . . . Conditions $3.00. Next! Do you want a singe or an oil shampoo? If you intend to be at the Junior Smoker to-night, start last week. Stop your kicking about the crowded cars; there'll be plenty of room after the Conditions. To be frank, Bosco is home with the "flu" and isn't writing this column at all. Who am I? I'm the gent that chuckles when you fall hard on the ice and I pass safely by; I'm the fellow that shouts loud and long when you miss the car at Park Street; I'm the little black man of the Condition Exam, the big red threat when the marks come home. . . . I'm Thursday your Jonah day. Look for me at the Junior Smoker to-night....
PURPLE RIDES TO VICTORY Relay Team Defeated [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 February 1920
PURPLE RIDES TO VICTORY Relay Team Defeated At the recent B. A. A. games the relay bowed in defeat to our ancient rival, Holy Cross. The defeat came as a surprise to most of us, who had figured that this year we were due to take our rivals measure on the track as well as the gridiron. The race was one of the most interesting of the evening and Holy Cross was forced to make the best time of any of the college relays entered in order to win. The time was announced at 3 min. 11 3-5 sec. Billy Nolan, our leadoff man, was opposed by Tom Digman, who had the good fortune to draw the pole. Our man got off to a poor start and Digman hit the first corner in the lead, and despite the valient efforts of Nolan, maintained the lead and turned over an advantage of two yards to King, who ran against Phil Corrigan. Corry ran a beautiful race but was unable to pass his opponent, and finished about four yards behind him. It was apparent that the drawing of the pole and hitting the first corner in the ...
Boston College Defeats Tech Game Featured by Hard Play [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 February 1920
Boston College Defeats Tech Game Featured by Hard Play Last Friday evening the B. C. hockey team defeated M. I. T. at the Pavilion; score 5-4. The game was certainly a thriller from start to finish. Leo Hughes the center ice man of B. C. stood head and shoulders above the other forward line players. He scored four goals. McNeil was the star player for Tech, scoring three goals. Thomas, Tech's right wing, scored the other goal on a back-hand shot in front of the net. The winning tally came on a pass from back of the net by Healy to Garrity who whipped home the puck with but twenty seconds to play. The game was very rough and Referee Rocque allowed the game to get away from him. The attitude of the Boston papers, which criticized B. C. players unmercifully is very much to be condemned. The B. C. players were by no means alone in rough play, as one would surmise from the writeups in the papers, for the Tech players were every bit as rough, if not more so, than the B. C. men. Ed Garrity...
Boxing Boom Speedy Action Urged [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 February 1920
Boxing Boom Speedy Action Urged When the boxing situation was presented to the students some weeks ago, the interest displayed presaged ill for the success of the new undertaking. But with the beginning of the second semester, a change has been noted and this week marked the appearance of a petition on all the bulletin boards urging the students to sign up as members of the classes to be formed in the near future. Accompanying the petition are various epigrams chosen to stimulate interest. The sponsors of this campaign are as yet unknown, but the "Heights" wishes to congratulate them, and urges them to persevere in their efforts till the sport is established on a solid basis. So far the Freshmen have displayed the greatest interest in the movement, and if the three upper classes would display as much enthusiasm as the Freshmen, then the movement will be a grand success. The petition favors the immediate appointment of a manager to arrange matches between the clasess, likewise urges ...

Somerville B.C. Club TO STAGE BRILLIANT PARTY [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 February 1920
Somerville B.C. Club TO STAGE BRILLIANT PARTY A mysterious activity has been noted among the members of the Somerville Club of late which has but very recently been explained. Various committees have been seen gathered in earnest conversation and now it is announced that April 6th is the date. In an interview that Harold Anderson, '20, graciously granted one of "The Heights" representatives, it was gleaned that Somerville is out to dim the lights of all other contenders with the splendor of its annual ball. It is the intention of the Club to enlist the aid of all the Catholic societies of Somerville in its endeavor to hold a dancing party worthy to be associated with the name of B. C. Many prominent women have already volunteered their aid and with the material assistance of an energetic body of alumni, the Somervillians now in attendance at the College entertain high hopes of a social eclipse. The Ball Committee includes Hal Anderson, Tom Scanlon, Gene McCabe, Bill Cunningham, Joe ...
Arlington B.C. Club Smoke Talk Coming [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 February 1920
Arlington B.C. Club Smoke Talk Coming The cry of the B. C. Club has finally alighted on attentive ears in the "elite" town of Arlington. We have always entertained confident hopes that sooner or later, Arlington, which boasts of numerous B.C. Alumni and undergraduates, would be moved by the powerful appeal of the omnipresent B. C. club idea. Our most sanguine imaginations have been exceeded by recent events. Due to a great extent, to the efforts of Williams Power '20 and James Cody, '20, the Arlington representatives at Boston College held their first meeting at the K. of C. Hall, Arlington, immediately following New Years. The members present agreed to defer the election of officers till some future date when, it is planned to have all Arlington B. C. Alumni, together with the undergraduates, elect officers at a smoketalk to be given this month. Quite in keeping with the prowess of Arlington on the ice, the first act of the Bl C. club of Arlington was to form a hockey team which co...
Practical Plan for Central Club Action Should Be Taken [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 February 1920
Practical Plan for Central Club Action Should Be Taken A few years ago the idea of forming Boston College Clubs in the various sections of the city was conceived by a student who possessed the germ of a great idea. These clubs were to be founded primarily for the purpose of spreading far and near the name and fame of Boston College, to assist the college in whatever way she might need aid, and to promote the social activities of the students and alumni. The growth of these clubs has been remarkable and now practically every section of the city and many of the outside cities and towns are represented by a club. The work accomplished has been well done, and they have lived up to the ideals for which they were founded. But the work of these various clubs must, by their very nature, be local, and therefore the activities interest only that particular district, and the clubs never attain the publicity that a real live club representing a college like B. C. should attain, in order that th...

On March 14th the first public appearance will be made at the Strand Theatre, Lynn, for the benefit of the parish of Fr. William Lyons, West Lynn, Mass. On March 21st, about twenty-five men of the club will journey to Westerly, R. 1., and there sing under the auspices of the Knights of Columbus and the Catholic Club of the City. Shortly after Easter, the postponed joint concert of Holy Cross and Boston College Musical Clubs will be held in Poli Theater. This will be the gala event of the year and the talent at both institutions promises a first class performance.

On April 20th the club will give a reception to the ...

J., President of the college, announced for the first time his intention of adding another auilding to the two, which have blready entered upon their course for the higher education of Catholic young men at Boston College.
