"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 February 1920
"As We See It" By Bosco We hope the cigars for the Junior Smoker don't get too dry. Put an orange peel in the box, (boxes)? It is no longer safe to display a full package of tonsil-sooth-ers in the lunch-room. Lent is over a week old. "Pete" Walker plays "Right Quiver" on the basket ball team. His job is to shake the basket when the other team shoots. a Jim Fitzpatrick claims he can get a shampoo without having his hair mussed. Ought to be easy. He played that Tufts game without disturbing the crease. Fifteen per cent of the second team comes to about eleven days. Save a few. Spring fever is a disease that requires rest and change of scene. We know a place where they change the scenes while you rest. The complete cure costs only thirty cents. Next year Connie Flynn will ride to the Yale game in style. Last year Connie hooked autos with the rest of us. Buy it from Ted Madden. Any relay team that can beat the B. A. A. mustbe good. "Jake" Driscoll is going back. He only annexed one cup...
Boxing Classes Started [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 February 1920
Boxing Classes Started The initial boxing class was scheduled to be held last Tuesday, but since Instructor McGady was unable to be on hand the grand opening was postponed. The gloves are ready, and as a sinister omen of what may happen in the coming combats a large, soft mat is prepared to receive those who fail to get a firm grasp on Prof. McGachy's tips on defense. The classes will be held in the Smoking Room, but any feature bouts or interclass tournaments will undoubtedly be staged in the Assembly Hall. Instructor McGady has had considerable experience in boxing, wrestling, and foot-ball and there is little chance of the pupils getting beyond his control.

B. C. High Track Team in Championship Class Annexes Huntington and Lowell Meets in one Day; Relay Runs Great Race in American Legion Games [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 February 1920
B. C. High Track Team in Championship Class Annexes Huntington and Lowell Meets in one Day; Relay Runs Great Race in American Legion Games The Boston College High School Track Team has fought itself into the very front rank of supremacy among local and nearby New England High School track representatives, by sweeping aside in the most summary fashion all opposition it has been pitted against The James Street boys possess what is, perhaps, the best balanced combination seen in this section in a long time. They are almost equally strong in the field and middle distance events, and it remains to develop one or two first class sprinters to make the squad almost unbeatable. The relay team, after its decisive victory over the Newtonian school boys at the American Legion Games, with the exception of Lynn Classical, has disposed of the last formidable opponent in the metropolitan district. The greatest achievement of the indoor season was the double victory of the team, last Saturday; in th...
Hockey Team Triumphs Over Tufts Scores Another Victory [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 February 1920
Hockey Team Triumphs Over Tufts Scores Another Victory Capt. Frank Morrissey's team added another victory to its credit on Wednesday night of last week, when it defeated the Tufts College sextet at the Cambridge Pavilion. The game was very even throughout, and at the close of the two regular fifteen minute periods, the score stood tied with each team having two goals to its credit. It was then decided to play two extra five-minute periods, and it was at this time that the superior stamina of our team was apparent. Taking a pass from Bennie Healey, Garrity made the first score, and Leo Hughes clinched the game with another score shortly afterwards. The play of B. C. was superior to that of Tufts throughout the whole game in skating, handling the puck and in endurance. The work of the hockey team this year, under the direction of Coach Falvey, has been of high order. Five games have been played so far, resulting in 4 victories, over West Point, Tech, Tufts and the Yankee Division. The...

Olin Downes Lectures to Juniors [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 February 1920
Olin Downes Lectures to Juniors Mr. Olin Downes, music critic of Boston Post, lectured to class in Journalism last Thursday. This was the seventh of series of lectures arranged by Fr. Tracy on the different aspects of newspaper work. Mr. Downes corrected the popular idea of the critic. Instead of being merely a choir warmer at the best shows, Mr. Downes said that the critic was a trained man, well-edu-cated, and a necessary part of art.
Five More Cities Join the Lists [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 27 February 1920
Five More Cities Join the Lists The past week ushered in two clubs representative of B.C. activities in Salem and Chelsea. These two cities are now strong enough to stand by themselves, and the remainder of the year will find them busily engaged in advertising themselves and the college. At an enthusiastic meeting of the Witch City contingent in the Fulton Room, the B. C. Club of Salem was formed. An immediate election brought the following into office: Pres., John C. Donahue, '20; Vice Pres., David McDonald, '21. Sec.-Treas., Thomas McManus, '23. The new addition expects to make things hum down in Essex County, as it has the co-operation of the many and distinguished members of the B. C. Alumni in that locality. The Chelsea representatives recently got together and elected Art. Roberty to the presidency. The other officers are: Vice-pres., John J. Hendy, '20, Sec.-Treas., Frederick L. Mickler, '21. Plans have not been fully formulated, but the club intends to hold a grand ball imme...
Executive Meeting Postponed To Take Place This Week [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 5 March 1920
Executive Meeting Postponed To Take Place This Week Owing to the severe weather, the meeting of the executive board of the college, scheduled, for last Friday, at which plans were to be drawn up for securing funds for the erection of the new science building, and other affairs connected with the proposed edifice were to be discussed, was postponed. It is expected that the meeting will be held some evening this week, at which time we can look forward to definite news concerning the various ways money is to be raised and other items of interest concerning the new building. As yet no appeal for contributions has been made to the alumni or friends of the college, so that those already received have been given under the assumption that an appeal would be made in the near future. So far the only move made has been the sending of a letter to the alumni informing them of the new project, stat - ing its necessity and the purpose it is to serve. But within the next few weeks it is expected th...
Catholic College Sport Alliance B.C. Favors Project to Form "Big Four' [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 5 March 1920
Catholic College Sport Alliance B.C. Favors Project to Form "Big Four' When Graduate Manager Cox of Georgetown started controversy with his proposal that the Jesuit Colleges of the East, Georgetown, Fordham, Holy Cross, and Boston College unite in all branches of major sport, and thus form an athletic alliance similar to the Big Three of Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, little did he realize that his initiative was merely the long-cherished desire of thousands of Catholic College students and alumni. A union of this kind would certainly benefit the colleges involved and would create keen competition between our great representative teams. There is every argument for such an alliance, hardly any against it. The contests would in time be just as important, and looked forward to as are the annual Harvard and Yale games. It is clear that the Jesuit Colleges of the East can always depend upon certain loyal sport enthusiasts to patronize their game, but something must be done to attract the ...
Boston College Men Turn Fire fighters Prevent Heavy Property Damage by Quick Action [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 5 March 1920
Boston College Men Turn Fire fighters Prevent Heavy Property Damage by Quick Action The usual course of events was suddenly interrupted last Friday at the lunch period, when a brisk fire broke out in an unfinished dwelling on College Road. The lunchroom was soon deserted by all the students, who with one accord rushed through the intervening snowdrifts, eager to render whatever assistance might be necessary. By the time the first group reached the spot the flames were spreading dangerously and threatened to destroy considerable surrounding property. The boys readily sensed the alarming situation and without hesitation undertook to save the adjacent buildings. Billy Bond, Bill Lyons Gene McCabe and Harold Sullivan, took the lead and with the aid of garden hoses and miscellaneous water containers were soon doing yeoman work without regard for their personal safety. The house in which the fire had its origin was rapidly being consumed, so that hope of saving any part of it was useless....

Why Not Swap a Few? [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 5 March 1920
Why Not Swap a Few? The latest addition to the list of sports fostered in the College should create a more widespread interest than any other. The art of self-defense has always been attributed and very properly, to our illustrious forbears, and it is but natural to assume that the attribute still exists. In earliest history we read of struggles between men for supremacy in the use of nature's weapons. In Greece it was one of the most popular forms of athletic rivalry and the battered winner of the oakleaf was indeed a hero. Tracing through the centuries we see boxing demanding less of the brute tactics and more of a real scientific knowledge. Today the science of the game is primarily exploited. There is even the cry of too much attention to the mental aspect, by lovers of the floor swinging punch and the claret-spilling style of slugging. It cannot be denied that trained knowledge is an essential in the sport as it is generally accepted. The basis of all, of course, is an inborn f...
"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 5 March 1920
"As We See It" By Bosco Ted Madden is now ready to serve the boxing candidates. He has put in a of courtplasters and eye-p: tcfr js. An opening in the Faculty Department—"Wanted: Experienced man to arrange Boxing marks for report cards." (We insert this ad. without charge.) We are assured that the diamond will be clear by March 15. Signor Boyle has purchased a new snow shovel —for Billy. There is absolutely no connection between Signor Boyle's reckless expenditure of money and the increased "tariff" on conditions. None at all. (Like tariff?) Society Note: The President and the Moderator of the Fulton held an enthusiastic meeting last Friday. All the members were either suspended or expelled. Those suspended will be received back into the society with much slaughter of fatted calves, etc. The expenses will be paid out of the fines. The College mimeograph has a flat tire. The recent strain was too much. We are safe for the present. Have you seen the collection of rare books on the low...
