GET THE HABIT [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 February 1920
GET THE HABIT One of the most valuable, yet withal, the most neglected steps towards education is supplementary reading. Little attention is paid to the works of the greatest thinkers of all time except that which is enforced in course. What a pity that it is not a widespread practice to spend a definite period of time weekly, gathering the fruits that must come from intimacy with the leaders of thought. The matter was brought forcibly to our attention in a conversation with one whose long connection with various educational boards and recognized prominence as a mentor, establishes his authority to speak and be heard. He regretted the tendency among students of to-day to be satisfied with superficial knowledge. Reading under proper direction and along the lines treated in classes, he pointed to as the outstanding remedy. No one can fail to perceive the fault among ourselves. Handicapped by abnormally large classes and worried by a plethora of distractions assumed to be pressing, you...
"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 February 1920
"As We See It" By Bosco It is not our fault if the price of conditions goes sky high. We supply the raw material and we stick to the old figures. Abraham Lincoln would never have gathered an education at $3 per error. Nature to the rescue —we can raise the money shovelling snow. An expert called in at the expense of the "Heights" scientific department has solved the Mystery of the Missing Tick or the Clock that Clocketh Not. He reports that they keep time too long in one place thus disproving the old theory that time and tide and "2:30 birds" wait for no man. Holy Cross closed on account of the "flu". Our rivals have set the pace but there is no good reason why we should lag behind. Join the B. C. Flu Drive —cough Till It Hurts. We shall pay a large cash award to the student coining a word best describing conditions at present profiteering prices. Please observe; I—This1 —This paper is not printed on asbestos. 2 —Our Editor is a shark and will detect profanity even though it be clot...
INDOOR LEGION GAMES [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 February 1920
INDOOR LEGION GAMES The track team, which ran in gold-medal fashion at the out-door games of the American Legion last Fall, has not yet registered high speed on the inside track, but manager Tom McNamara has a list of stars and the training under Coach Jack Ryder is bound to demonstrate itself before the open cinderpath is again tossed back.

Our four-man relay team has not attai...
Tufts vs. B. C. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 February 1920
Tufts vs. B. C. Luke Urban's basketball players are now coordinated into a fast team When the season was opened the status of the sport was uncertain, but its settlement steadied the game for the college. Saturday the basket-shooters played to another victory, defeating the B. U. five on the latter's floor. Tomorrow night our team engages Tufts again. A heavy defeat, the only one this season, was given our team by the Medford boys a month ago, and now Jerry Mahoney, Gannon, John Lyons, Linehan, Jimmie Fitzpatrick, Louis Smyth and Ed Gallagher will try to turn the tables

Fulton Prize Debate Senate's Action Necessitates Change in Prize Subject [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 February 1920
Fulton Prize Debate Senate's Action Necessitates Change in Prize Subject The action of the United States Senate in excluding the Cummins anti-strike clause from the railroad legislation now being formulated by that body has caused a re-wording of the question for the Fulton Prize Debate and a change in the date as well. The question that will be debated now reads Resolved: That the exclusion of the Cummins anti-strike clause from the federal railroad legislation was wise in policy and sound in principle. The winner of the Fulton Prize Debate this year will receive a gold medal donated by Mrs. Vincent P. Roberts, president of the Philomatheia Club, auxiliary to Boston College. Mrs. Roberts has shown her interest in Boston College in many ways in the past, but her action in voluntarily donating the Fulton medal for the next ten years brings home fully to every son of B. C. the whole hearted interest which the Philomatheia Club has for B. C. students. That this act of generosity on the...

Coghlan, '78, had contributed one thousand dollars to • the fund for the Science Building and that the Reverend President of the College and an (Executive Committee of the Alumni would meet this evening to draft more definite plans for the campaign were the outstanding developments of the week.

Boston College 30 Tufts 25 [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 February 1920
Boston College 30 Tufts 25 Five Wins Lively Contest There always is keen satisfaction in winning, but being victor after a loss gives greater satisfaction. The College has tasted this intensified joy by winning over Tufts last Saturday night at the East Armory, 30 to 25, in a hard-fought contest which the Heights team deserved to win. Gajmon was the star of the game in the way of scoring, but all the players were noticeable for fine play. Gannon shot four baskets from the floor and four on fouls. He was ever on hand when an opening came and on several occasions made the opening himself. Louis Smith was the hero of the extra five-minute period which was required for a victory. The deciding session had barely opened when he snapped the ball for two points, and in a minute or two repeated the stunt. Gallagher, whom Smith replaced, played a strong game, covering his man and caring chiefly for team work. "Ike" Kamp displayed oldtime condition and at critical periods saved the team much t...
"Jake" Driscoll Captures Gaston Trophy B. C. Relay Team Defeats B. A. A. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 February 1920
"Jake" Driscoll Captures Gaston Trophy B. C. Relay Team Defeats B. A. A. Running well within himself up to the last forty yards, Jake Driscoll uncorked a magnificent sprint that carried him past Minot of the B. A. A. in the home stretch, and led him to a great visctory in the special 600 yd. race for the first leg on the Col. Gaston Trophy, at the Legion games held Monday of this week. There were four contestants for the trophy, Dave Caldwell and H. W. Minot of the B. A. A., Garven Bawden of Tech and Jake Driscoll. Minot jumped into the lead with the gun, with Jake right at his heels. It was nip and tuck between the leaders throughout, with Caldwell and Bawden hopelessly behind, till the last straightaway, when Jake shot past Minot and won by a few yards, in the exceptionally fast time of 1 min. 17 2/5 sec. It was a great race and much credit is due the winner for bringing the magnificent trophy to B. C.for the coming year. We hope he will secure the other two legs on it, and make i...

TALK IT UP [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 February 1920
TALK IT UP The thud of the ball in the big mitt which will soon be heard hereabouts should serve to remind us of the task which presently will be ours. The advent of the baseball brings with it the recognized duty of winning another Catholic College championship. We look forward confidently assured that our "nine" will show the way to such aspirants as Worcester, Washington, and Fordham may produce. Although the glamor has passed, there is need for no memory prodding to recall the proud record of Coach Cavanaugh's men. They fought the fight and well deserved the resultant laurels. Now we are faced with a sterner requirement. In football we have repeated victories over the Purple for three years, but our conquests on the diamond have been shaded slightly. Stung by the outcome of the Fall invasion, Holy Cross will be doubly intent on a season of vengeance, while Georgetown, after her little surprise, will have undergone careful grooming. To win the double championship is a goal ardent...
Senior Year Book Under-classmen Urged to Support Chiefest of Senior Activities [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 February 1920
Senior Year Book Under-classmen Urged to Support Chiefest of Senior Activities Only those who have had some connections with the editing of a college year book can fully appreciate the task that is before the Seniors. To cover the history of every man's four years at B. C, to record the achievements of our athletic and various other major activities and to compile the almost unlimited data at hand, is a proposition which is giving the genial editor-in-chief, Tom Gately, many a sleepless night. This year the work is even more arduous. The class is larger and the chief matter of concern is the advance in the cost of printing, a factor which past classes never had to meet. The increase in the cost of engraving, compiling, binding, material for cuts, etc., has sky-rocketed to unprecedented heights. Consequently, the urgent appeal for aid from the lower classes is a matter of great importance. We ask, are the present un-der-classes willing to aid us in our work? Are they going to maintai...
