Phil Corrigan Wins 300 Tough Luck at N.E. Championship Games [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 5 March 1920
Phil Corrigan Wins 300 Tough Luck at N. E. Championship Games Boston College should take heed of the lesson demonstrated last Saturday at Mechanics Building, when our trackmen were so handicapped by their starting positions as a result of tardy entries that any unusual showing by the Maroon and Gold runners was made impossible. The sad truth of this was most clearly evident in the way our Jake Driscoll used himself up in his struggle to compensate for his disadvantageous setting. Phil Corrigan was the only Heights runner to capture a title. Phil used his head and his legs and straightway he captured the corner, held his pace, and broke the tape for first honors in the 300 yard run. It was with fast time that he dethroned the speedy Dignan of Holy Cross, winner in the games last year. Billy Nolan, the East Boston flyer, was the third and last scorer for the College. He won his heat in wonderful fashion. He followed Dignan to the finish of the final heat, however, gaining third place....
Hockey Closes Successful Season Letters Soon to be Awarded [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 5 March 1920
Hockey Closes Successful Season Letters Soon to be Awarded Captain Morrissey announces the close of the hockey season du? to lack of facilities. The record hung up by this year's team under the able guidance of Coach Falvey has placed hockey on a solid foundation and established a standard for the coming seasons. Every game played, with the exception of M. A. C., was a victory. The battle with the "Aggies" was an overtime clash and was staged before the team had fairly struck its stride. When once under way, Captain Morrissey's team showed its eminence by a record of brillant victories, numbering among them some of the hardestfought games of the hockey season. The efficient work of Manager Morrissey contributed very materially to the effective work of the team. Hockey is a sport that rolls up no revenue. Games are not easily arranged because of this. But the persistence under many difficulties of Manager Morrissey resulted in the arranging of some of the fastest and most brilliant g...
Batteries Being Oiled Baseball Machine Gets Under Way [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 5 March 1920
Batteries Being Oiled Baseball Machine Gets Under Way Baseball is with us again. Coach White has the battery candidates limbering up daily and they are eager to get adequate opportunity to show their wares. As we go to press the practice is being held in the Smoking Room, although promise is held out that the boys will soon have more ample room for their activities. The response to the first call was all that could be desired. Upwards of fifty aspirants made it known that they have no objections to a jaunt through the balmy South. It would indicate that Coach White and Jerry O'Nul are the only two for whom advance passage can be secured with certainty. It is too early to judge of respective ability. Reputation has preceeded many, but we prefer to see a little more than preliminary kink workouts, before discussing the timber in view. Our correspondent will cover all new developments and keep the College informed on the number of bats broken, and the amount of protein in the food at t...

Mr. Davis Talks on Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 5 March 1920
Mr. Davis Talks on Advertising Mr. Davis, of the advertising department of the Boston Post, outlined the work of his department to the class in Journalism last Thursday. This class has been quite fortunate this year in having some of the ablest men in iournalism as lecturers. Mr. Davis believes we have merely scratched the surface in advertising. "We know only a little about it," he said. "The future is unlimited and full of surprises and developments." Mr. Davis's treatment of the psychology of advertising was very interesting. In closing Mr. Davis extended an invitation to the class to visit the advertising department of the Post. With such repeated invitations and the kind offer of advice of Mr. Myles Connolly, B. C, '19, ample opportunity is afforded any B. C. man to study journalism, and if qualified, to enter upon this work.

Architects Planning New Science Building Fr. Doody Contributes $1500 [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 March 1920
Architects Planning New Science Building Fr. Doody Contributes $1500 Already the architects are busy at work on the plans of the proposed Science Building. The building will be designed by the same firm which drew up the plans for the two buildings already erected, and consequently we can look forward to a work of architecture rivalling that of the ancient Gothic cathedrals. If this building does no more than come up to the standard set in the past, it will guarantee us a group which it would be hard to rival, much less surpass, in this part of the country. Mr. McGuiness expects to have the plans completed at the latest in the early fall, at which time the work of construction will commence, and the completion brought about as soon as possible. On Thursday of this week Rev. Fr. Rector held a meeting which is expected to bring results in a financial way. The representatives of the different classes of the alumni were present, and ways and means of raising funds among the alumni were ...
"Seance" Held at Boston College Tricks of Fake Mediums Exposed [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 March 1920
"Seance" Held at Boston College Tricks of Fake Mediums Exposed On Sunday afternoon before a large gathering of the Philomatheia Club and students of the college, Rev. Fr. Carlos de Heredia, S. J., of the faculty of Holy Cross, conducted a "spiritual seance" in the smoking room, which had been especially arranged for the occasion. Practically all the wonders which are attributed to the "spirits" and which an ever gullible public are prone to believe, were performed by Fr. de Heredia in the course of the afternoon. Fr. de Heredia, who was brought up in Mexico, is well versed in the all manifestations of the bogus mediums, and stated that none of the workings of the so-called "spirits" during a seance could be proved on scientific grounds, but that they were merely tricks that could be performed by any ordinary magician. To acquire facility in these performances requires merely a training for a certain period of time in these lines. Among the phenomena witnessed was the moving of a tab...
Bishop W.f.O'Hare of Jamaica Visits Boston College Noted B.C. Alumnus Addresses Students [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 March 1920
Bishop W.f.O'Hare of Jamaica Visits Boston College Noted B.C. Alumnus Addresses Students Boston College feels honored in being among the first to tender in toto, a reception to Bishop William F. O'Hare, head of the foreign missions in Jamaica, British West Indies, upon his recent appointment to that high office, succeeding Bishop Collins who resigned on account of failing health. Bishop O'Hare is no stranger to Boston College. He is one of our two most distinguished alumni who have attained distinction in Church circles. Boston College is proud to link Bishop O'Hare's name with her most illustrious son, his eminence Cardinal O'Connell, and she will always glory in their achievements in the cause of God and Holy Mother Church. It was simply a matter of resuming where he left off some thirty-two years ago for Bishop O'Hare to feel in the midst of his own, in his interesting address to the students. He felt relieve andthankfuldfor the chance to look at an audience of "WHITE" faces once...

Pay What Thou Owest! [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 March 1920
Pay What Thou Owest! Have you met him? He needs no introduction —in fact, he seeks none, but we purpose to bring him out in the s.inlight of publicity and see what effect the warmth will have. We refer to the man who becomes highly indignant or who assumes the attitude of indifference or seeks furtively for an avenue of escape, according to his makeup, when approached to pay his just share of class assessments. It is regrettable to think that the type is not only present but even numerous right in our midst. Those who have had the unwanted task of attempting to transfer legal tender from the one way pockets of the gentry in question to the class treasury, with the subject of extraction still in full possession of all his faculties, bear disgusted witness to the truth of our statements. Invective, logic and appeal meet with haughty display of injured feeling, the expressive shrug of the shoulder or the crawling evasion of the beaten man. No method has evidently been devised to impres...
"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 March 1920
"As We See It" By Bosco A few days out-door practice would help Coach White more than a flock of Ouija boards in selectii g th &gt; players for the Southern trip. Jimmy Valentine was good, but he never tried to get a book out of our library. Bo Brawley won't buy The Heights unless his name is in it. When the noble name of Brawley does appear, Bo buys twenty copies and passes them out to the neighbors. It's great to be popular. Spring is coming. Will you sign up for an O. C. D.? Life's darkest moment: To get the top off the peanut machine and find you can't squeeze your hand through. The Freshman baseball team works out daily in the lunchroom. There are some promising orange-peel and jelly doughtnut heavers in the squad. A sophomore may be cured, but a freshman is always a freshman. We are going to join Prof. McGady's boxing class. Class treasurers and other profiteers —have a care! One of the base-ball candidates bought a bunch of Baltimore postcards. If Coach White has anyt...
B. C. has Three Entries in the National Championships Watch for New York Reports [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 March 1920
B. C. has Three Entries in the National Championships Watch for New York Reports Jake Driscoll, Phil Corrigar, Billy Nolan, the college will be rooting for your success tomorrow when Boston College concludes its indoor track season with competition at New York in the National Amateur Track and Field Championships. These three speedsters are the total of Maroon and Gold runners trying for national titles. Phil Corrigan showed on Monday that he is himself. Over at the Stadium Phil made the best time the path has seen this year, 14.3 seconds. Billy Nolan was also in good form and displayed high speed. Jake Driscoll has been practising back at his old ground—H. S. of Commerce — and reports say that Jake sure was "there". There is a possibility that a meet will be arranged with Fordham and New York University and the College of the City of New York, to be run off in the Big City. Boston College has proposed such a meeting and is anxious to extend the indoor season. Monday opens outdoor t...
Baseball Season Looming Up Batteries Showing Form [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 March 1920
Baseball Season Looming Up Batteries Showing Form No baseball coach in the history of Boston College has faced the predicament of Coach Dave White in his endeavors to turn out a winning combination in baseball. With the Southern trip less than three weeks away, Alumni Field is four feet deep with snow. There is little prospect of it being cleared before the time of scheduled departure. Meanwhile, Coach White is doing his best under the circumstances, and is using the smok-ing-room for his battery men. Coach White will be doing wonders if the team is in good enoug hcondition to defeat such teams as Georgetown and Annapolis, which will have the advantage of pbnty of good outdoor practice. But the student bodi? has great faith in the abilities of Coach White and the leadership of Capt. Billy Bond, whose sterling work in last combats with Holy Cross are year's still remembered. In a year of such a wealth of material, it is keenly disappointing to be subject to such adverse conditions fo...
Boston College Plays Fordham Grand Windup for Basketball [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 March 1920
Boston College Plays Fordham Grand Windup for Basketball The season will finish with New York Friday night to play Fordham. Urban, Fitzgerald, Gannon, Louie Smith, Capt. Mahoney, Gallagher, and Lyon will make the trip. Basketball squad leaves for Hartford the following Friday night, March 19. This game will bring to close one of the most successful seasons in basketball at the college. The excellent record made under Capt. Mahoney and the coaching of Luke Urban this year has certainly established the claim of basketball to a position of a major sport. The challenge to Worcester Tech for the championship of the state has been dropped. Manager Salmon felt that inasmuch as most of the games of the team had been out of the state, B. C. did not have as good a claim to challenge Worcester as did Springfield. Manager Salmon announces fiat the prospects for the 192021 season are brilliant. Already Georgetown, Colgate, V. of Maine, and Yale have asked for games.
