MARQUETTE TEEMING WITH ACTION Prize Debate and K. of C. Contests Coming [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 23 April 1920
MARQUETTE TEEMING WITH ACTION Prize Debate and K. of C. Contests Coming Despite the fact that we have entered upon a season which magnetically draws many from the realm of books and serious thinking, not one iota of enthusiasm has been lost by our junior debating society. As we go to press (April 21) one of the best teams in the society, composed of Messrs. Foley and Consodine, affirmative; and Messrs,. Turnbull and Tucker, negative, are preparing to go to Mattapan to debate on the "Mason Bill." Several weeks ago this same question was argued upon before the Mansfield council. Another K. of C. debate is to be given before the Wakefield council on May 16, and additional contests are in process of arrangement. \u The prize debate, to be held May 12, on the question: "Resolved, that the Initiative and Referendum should be adopted in National Affairs," bids fair to be the premier forensic struggle of the year. Messrs, Tucker, Magennis, and Crane are to uphold the affirmative, while Mess...
Boston College Loses First Home Game Poor Fielding and No Hitting Responsible [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 23 April 1920
Boston College Loses First Home Game Poor Fielding and No Hitting Responsible Kibbee, the clever Vermont twirler, played sphinx at Alumni Field and was able to propound questions which but few of our batters could answer. For five innings not a Maroon and Old Gold player reached first base. Owing to this failure to bat, together with wretched fielding, the Boston College nine, opening its home season, lost to the University of Vermont, 4 to 1. The Vermont boys won the game in the fifth inning, scoring three runs. After Brock had fanned, Harris hit to right and scored on a hit to center by McGinnis. Kerwin touched first when Comerford threw short, McGinnis scoring. Billy Bond made an unusual catch off Tryon. Another error let Garrity get on base and Kerwin scored. Spillane was thrown out. Billy Dempsey, Phil Corrigan and Louis Urban comprised a strong outfield, and all three were dangerous at bat. Corrigan hit safely twice with great effect and barehanded grabbed a hot one, Bill Demp...

The concerts of the Musical Clubs are to be an instrument in raising funds for Father Re...

AS REGARDS SEASON TICKETS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 23 April 1920
AS REGARDS SEASON TICKETS The onward march of athletics continues, and the vigorous policy of those heading this department on the Heights calls for the highest enthusiasm and endorsement of everyone interested in the college. More particularly should this apply to the student body, to whose lot will redound the benefits accruing. The plan emanating from the Athletic Office, outlining the project of the sale of one season book for the baseball games by each student should be seized upon and carried through to fulfillment. By so doing, a spirit of co-operation will be displayed, wnich will have no little effect on the future action of the Graduate Board. It will point out to what extent the students may be relied upon. We are all conversant with the financial status quo. Aside from the usual drain on the resources demanded by the equipment of teams, payment of coaches, and the countless items necessarily to be confronted, the recent erection of a new fence to screen the exciting cont...
THE LION AND THE LAMB [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 23 April 1920
THE LION AND THE LAMB (Ed. Note: —The following narrative was found engraved on a brownbread steamer in the University of Murad. Evidently the Sunday Supper Sponge existed among the students of that time.) "The Lion Hungereth. To eat in Ye Den of Dyspepsia requireth Mazuma and to the Lion the Parting is indeed Painful. He pondereth. Of a sudden a Great Light breaketh upon the Lion. His Hair curleth, his Teeth chattereth, his Skin creepeth, his Arches falleth, —the Lion hath an Idea. He will approach the Domicile of the Lamb and work Ma-Ma for a Pheed. He removeth his Shoe, extracteth Seven Coppers, and hasteneth to the Drug-Store. Hath the Lion a cold? Nay. He will lay before the Goddess of the Kitchen an Offering— a hox of Koff-Drops. "Nimbly doth he trip up the Front Steps. On the top step he trippeth and cometh to rest in the Front-Hall. Ma-Ma faileth to see the Comedy. When the Lion produceth the KoffDrops, Ma-Ma releaseth his ear and ushereth him to the Parlor. The Lion fidgete...

Sports BILL DEMPSEY STARS IN INTERCLASS MEET Sophomores Roll Up 62 1/2 Points on Opponents [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 23 April 1920
Sports BILL DEMPSEY STARS IN INTERCLASS MEET Sophomores Roll Up 62 1/2 Points on Opponents The Sophomore class easily showed its superiority over the other three classes at the Interclass Meet held last Friday on Alumni Field, winning by 3414 points over its nearest competitors, the Freshmen. The final Sfcore; showed the Sophomores first with 62% points, the Freshmen second with 28 points, the Juniors third with 22% points, and the Seniors fourth with 13 points. Captain Bill Dempsey was the star of the meet, capturing 12% points and also breaking his own record in the running broad jump by over a foot. This jump, betters his Eastern Intercollegiate mark of 21 ft. 10 in. and also his New England Intercollegiate mark of 21 ft. 6% in. If the king of the Eastern and New England Intercollegiate broad jumpers continues his fine work, Boston College will be able to claim another Olympic candidate, along with Jake Driscoll. In the 100-yard dash Walter Downey, '23, broke the tape a yard ahea...
BOXING CLASSES RESUMED More Candidates Sought [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 23 April 1920
BOXING CLASSES RESUMED More Candidates Sought After a lapse of a few weeks, Instructor Beavan McGady again has his boxing charges hard at work in the manly art. Classes are being held every Monday and Thursday afternoon from 2.30 till 3.30 in the smoking room. At present the class numbers about 30 candidates who are fairly well progressed in the fundamentals, and from now on bouts will be held between the candidates. These classes furnish an opportunity to engage in a sport, which not only keeps the body in good physical condition, but likewise furnishes an opportunity to learn how to defend oneself if ever called upon to do so. It is to be regretted that more students do not take advantage of these classes, and Instructor McGady's services. However, it is not too late to join now, and we hope that anyone who is thinking of enrolling will present himself at the next session. Gloves have been furnished by the college and a punching bag is to be erected in the near future. The intercl...
"PASSED-BALLS" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 23 April 1920
"PASSED-BALLS" The Band played well. Bill Dempsey furnished the Fred Stone stunt of the game. Kibbee looked like a Liberty Loan poster. He certainly went over the the top. It was pretty windy when the game started but by the fifth inning, the breeze had been knocked out near the flag pole. Duffy O'Regan successfully dodged that high foul. "Doc" White followed Pres. Wilson's policy of watchful waiting while Clyde Engle told the umps what was which. Fitzie's two-base poke in the ninth would have been good for four bases except for the spongy condition of the outfield. The sun flashing on the windshields out in right center must help the batters a great deal. The umpire on bases earned his money. He chased wild throws 'n everythin'. Fitzie didn't even lose his dignity stealing third in the ninth. We liked the last inning. They should have played that first and let us go home out of the cold.
JUNIOR SMOKER MAY 6 Dan Gallagher to "Talk"— Musical Clubs Entertain [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 23 April 1920
JUNIOR SMOKER MAY 6 Dan Gallagher to "Talk"— Musical Clubs Entertain Bite six bits in the wall, put it in the cuff, or write a book about it. But don't forget the sixth. It is going to come off one fair evening in May. Ergo, the sixth, the beautiful, sixth. There's nothing like the sixth. Nothing will be like the sixth. In fact the sixth won't toe like itself. You won't recognize the sixth. You'll be sick after the sixth. Now for a little urge about the place. Scene of frolic: Heights. Time: Sunset at S.OO p. m., the crepuscular hour, on the eve of the Fordham game, or as our good friends from Old Rose Hill will write home, "Just before the battle, mother." Morgan Ryan has stopped speaking pieces and lending Fatimas in order to give his undivided support, wholehearted co-operation, unstinted energy and all the other sterling Aristoteleian virtues that have been empire builders, successful profiteers, and Bugs Baers' so that you will say, "Good time? Wow, I'll say so." Charlie Coyle ...
AS WE SEE EM [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 23 April 1920
AS WE SEE EM by "BOSCO" Senior's Ma-Ma: "Mortimer, why are you late for supper?" Mortimer: "I ran on our class relay team." We sympathize with John McCormack. Our Glee Club will no doubt act as a powerful counter-attraction next Sunday afternoon. No doubt. The announces that we are in the home stretch. This term is particularly appropriate when applied to Sophomore and trotting circles. J. Robert Brawley is an ardent baseball fan. He followed the Vermont game closely—very closely when Charlie Wellington approached with the sweet chocolate, etc. "There was a young Freshman at 8..C. Who tried to take life rather E. C. But once he had Bean In touch with the His error he soon began 2C." Supply the missing word; we may not. The bats the ball team used Monday were the kind they sell for decorating Christmas trees. They may be all right after the putty has hardened. Anent the bats —we hear they were made in Vermont. The thick plottens. Someone intends to plant potatoes in the infield. It h...

MUSICAL PROPAGANDA Successful Concert in Newton Only a Prelude to One at Jordan Hall, April 25, 3 P. M. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 23 April 1920
MUSICAL PROPAGANDA Successful Concert in Newton Only a Prelude to One at Jordan Hall, April 25, 3 P. M. All Newton discovered last Sunday that musical talent of genuine excellence has been developed at University Heights. Yet this concert but insured success for next Sunday's fete at Jordan Hall. In athletic activity our place is secure. This year solid foundation is being laid for a claim to honors in the musical world. The cornerstone of that foundation will be laid next Sunday. Let every loyal son be there. The two-hour program at Newton met with repeated encores. Both the Glee Club and the band were conducted by Cary Martin. On the violin Walter Mayo will surprise more than a few next Sunday were he only to repeat his exquisite playing at Newton. In Walter Mack's singing the audience recognized a soloist of true concert form. Much enjoyment was added to the program by that popular duet —"Bill" Bigley and Walter Downey. Morgan Ryan's speaking quickly gained their applause, and th...
