Salem B. C. Club Formed [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 March 1920
Salem B. C. Club Formed The old B. C. spirit cannot be quenched regardless of time or place. This was demonstrated last Sunday when the Salem B. C. Club held a meeting in the Fr. Matthew's Hall, to which all former B. C. students and alumni of Essex County were invited. Although the mercury had disappeared from the thermometer, and the transportation system had about given up the ghost, many walked in from surrounding towns, and the attendance exceeded anticipations. It is hoped that Salem will be the centre of B. C. activity along the North Shore.

Fund Workers Guests of Fr. Rector at Dinner Machine Perfected for Active Campaign Perhaps the most representative gathering ever to assemble in the interests of Boston College met in the Arts Building on Thursday evening March 11, as guests of Father Rector at an informal dinner. Immediately followed a business meeting in the interest of the Building Fund, and furnished a rare display of unalloyed enthusiasm. With the exception of seven, every class graduated from our seat of learning since 1880 was represented, and the presidents of all the B. C. Clubs were on hand to discuss methods of procedure and offer advice to the Executive Committee. This, the first open meeting was an unqualified success. Mr. Nugent, Pres. of the Graduate Athletic Board, presided and after a brief exposition of the situation, called on our Reverend President. Fathe our Reverend President. Father Devlin pointed out the inadequacy of our present accommodations and appealed for a vigorous canvass of the alumni...

Concert at Lynn Triumph for the Glee Club An Audience of 2,000 Present The Glee Club scored its first victory in the Strand Theatre, Lynn on Sunday afternoon. The Concert was the Annual Mid-Lenten entertainment arranged by Rev. William F. Lyons, '97, of the Sacred Heart Church, West Lynn. The Program in past years comprised many well-known professional singers. This year's Musicale was a departure, the Boston College Glee Club and Quartet were invited, along with the Soloists Walter Mack and J. Carey Martin, to render the majority of the numbers. The Lynn musical critics were very favorable in their criticisms, stating that the quartet was the feature of the entertainment, and that the Glee Club had a great precision ip tempo and a remarkable blend in the voices. Many others in the audience were loud in their praise of the fine team work and the resultant interpretation of the numbers. The Musical Club can well register March 14 as a red letter day. The appearance of the Glee Club w...

A Test of Merit [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 19 March 1920
A Test of Merit In the work of raising funds for the erection of a new Science Building lies an excellent means for the numerous Boston College clubs to prove that the purpose for which they were organized, is something real and not mere elocution. Funds are needed. That should be sufficient impetus. It is the written or expressed aim of each individual club to do something substantial for Boston College. Heretofore, many of the clubs have come through generously and applied their funds to some form of college activity. Others have contented themselves with sponsoring social affairs which had for their prime motive the idea of bringing the name of B. C. before the public and advertizing the College in a highly praiseworthy manner. That was all very acceptable. Now we have something bigger and greater than anything ever before attempted on which to exert ourselves. Rev. Father Rector, in accepting this latest task of furnishing adequate housing facilities for those who are eagerly se...
"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 19 March 1920
"As We See It" By Bosco Remarks from the base-ball candidates indicate that the cage is peculiarly adapted to the gathering of a "Charleyhorse" or —any kind of horse. Signor Boyle has given over the boiler room to the osteopaths. It is rumored that the Bone Doctors will be joined by a new sect —the "Holy Rollers" under the leadership of Luke Urban. Sign of Spring: The epidemic of Sears-Roebuck hair-cuts. Mulligan ordered one three sizes too small. If the track men run like the milk they drink in the lunch-room — goo-bye! The students' edition of the lacteal fluid starts strong but fades out at the bottom of the bottle. Idea for the Seniors Yearbook fund: Appoint Dinny Lyons and John Lane (if he can steal a few moments from his social engagements) to bale up a few hundred pounds of the paper that decorates the floor of their room and sell it to the Juniors for the Smoker. Paper makes fair cigars. Ye gods! Must we spend the entire Easter vacation in riotous living? Two days! Help! Hav...
Inter-Class Competition Under Jack Ryder Weather Interferes With Track Plans [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 19 March 1920
Inter-Class Competition Under Jack Ryder Weather Interferes With Track Plans Indoor track is over and fresh-air running is about to start. Monday the call will be issued. Interclass relay races and other events will be run off early in the week, but the regular Spring Outdoor Interclass Games will not be held until the snow has melted and the cinder track has been rolled. Saturday our sturdy trackmen ran a losing race in New York. Their work was creditable. Jake Driscoll and Phil Corrigan sprinted fast in the three-hundred and did their best —there were other's faster, that's all. Jake ran strongly also in the 600. And Billy Nolan was by no means a poor competitor. Coach Jack Ryder and Manager Tom McNamara invite uninitiated trackmen to slip into track togs and go out with the squad. There will be plenty of opportunity to try your worth and to do credit to the instructions of the coach. On the hot, steamy days you will have Pete Walker to fan you. The board track is clear and dry, r...

Basketball Team Leaves for Hartford Kirby, New Manager [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 19 March 1920
Basketball Team Leaves for Hartford Kirby, New Manager Capt. Jerry Mahoney's team leaves for Hartford this evening to wind up a very successful season. They will face Trinity on their own court tomorrow night. The Fordham defeat caused quite a surprise, but is accounted for by the fact that the baseball practice has materially interfered with basketball. Nevertheless, the New York people witnessed a very fast game. Fordham may well attribute victory to their speed and masterly passing. Much praise is due to players who struggled through the season under many handicaps. The able coaching of Urban has resulted in an almost unbroken series of victories. The skilful management of Tom Salmon has demonstrated his ability to pick up a minor sport and pilot it during its first year to an enviable position in the list of major sports. Manager Salmon wishes to express through the columns of the Heights the thanks of Capt. Jerry Mahoney and his team for the kindness of St. Mary's A. A. of Camb...

Fr. Boehm's class room is on the first floor near the A. A. office.
