COMPETITORS PICKED FOR ORATORICAL CONTEST Senior Has Largest Number [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 April 1920
COMPETITORS PICKED FOR ORATORICAL CONTEST Senior Has Largest Number The long heralded trials for the oratorical contest were held on Wednesday in the Assembly Hall. Twen-ty-two students of the College competed. After having for more than an hour been the target of vivid imaginative passages on Ireland and the World War, and after having caught brilliant glances into the history of the Middle Ages, the judges, Father Corrigan, Mr. Countie and Mr. Devereaux, retired and the following morning the anxiously awaited results were posted on the bulletins. The following men were chosen to take part in the contest to be held May 21: J. F. Mulligan, R. S. McShane, T. F. E. McNamara, W. D. Power, E. L. Roddan, of Senior; M. T. Ryan, H. J. Sullivan, of Junior; and H. E. Foley, F. E. Magennis, W. J. Sheehan, of Sophomore. If we take the trials as a criterion of the standard of oratory in the above gentlemen, the prize battle of May 21 promises to be aglow with vivid and inspiring orations.
MARQUETTE HOLDS MOCK TRIAL "Alpha Mu" Society Receives Another Boost [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 April 1920
MARQUETTE HOLDS MOCK TRIAL "Alpha Mu" Society Receives Another Boost On the afternoon of Friday, April 23, in the improvised court room of Junior "B," the Marquette Debating Society conducted a mock trial. "Dan" McSweeney, the sophomore humorist and man of intellect, was charged with being a member of a "secret and seditious" society, which turned out to be none other than the noble and widespread "Alpha Mu." After a rigorous and searching examination by " District Attorney" "Jim" Doyle, and an admirably laughable defence by "Counsel" Foley, the intended victim was unanimously acquited by a jury, but he was sent to the chair by a conspiring judge and jury foreman. After the trial a flood of applications was received *for admittance into the society, whose ennobling ideals are gradually permeating the minds of the student body.
CAUSES OF SOCIAL UNREST DISCUSSED Dr. Quimby of the Hood Rubber Co. Addresses Seniors on Industrial Relations [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 April 1920
CAUSES OF SOCIAL UNREST DISCUSSED Dr. Quimby of the Hood Rubber Co. Addresses Seniors on Industrial Relations Dr. Robert S. Quimby, service manager at the Hood Rubber Co., Watertown, gave a very interesting talk to the senior class last Friday on the relations of Capital and Labor. His exposition of the methods employed by the Hood Rubber Co. in its treatment of the some 10,000 employees at the plant was indeed instructing. After giving a brief and accurate historical sketch of the early relations of employer and employee, he discussed some of the causes for the present social unrest. He deplored the attitude of some employers who failed to keep foremost in mind the "human element" in connection with labor. The employer who does not recognize the rights of his workers to a fair wage and to proper working conditions, merely because his mind is set on keeping operating expenses at a minimum, is not only failing in his duty towards the workers, but he is actually operating his plant at...
MUSICAL TRIUMPH AT JORDAN HALL Generous Applause Well-Merited [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 April 1920
MUSICAL TRIUMPH AT JORDAN HALL Generous Applause WellMerited Before a highly appreciative audience that filled Jordan Hall on last Sunday afternoon, the musical clubs scored the most decisive victory that B. C. circles have ever known. From the opening strains of the overture, right through the numbers ana the finale, proof was very evident that the long, tiresome hours of practice were steps to a remarkable achievement. To Mr. Parsons, who is responsible for the great strides taken in matters musical; to Carey Martin, leader par excellence, and to each individual who participated, B. C. men are truly grateful. There is need for no lengthy description of the selections. If you are a B. C. man, you were there. If you weren't there, you can't hope to be considered a B. C. man. En passant, we might interject that the Band has without a doubt arrived. No longer a bijou of the late lamented S. A. T. 1., it now graces the concert stage and functions beyond reproach. The glee Club is rich ...

MORE LIFE [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 April 1920
MORE LIFE A team that could play without incentive has never been unearthed. Incentive arises from many sources, but chiefly from the support and encouragement it gets. You can't expect nine men to be tensely eager to blank their opponents, if their timely scoop from the grass or Immelman loop for a putout call for no concerted show of appreciation. The staccato cheer from the enthused stands causes the warm surge in the athlete that means fight from cap to spikes. Cheering has ever been closely associated with college athletics. We have even heard of those who attended collegiate contests with the purpose of enjoying the noisy battle between the rival rooters. In the only game played at home thus far, the only noticeable united effort came from a platoon of loquacious urchins, who mysteriously blossomed in the grandstand. The next game will undoubtedly see a cheer-leader out in front, who will try to pry a little unison out of chaos. Bear in mind that he doesn't want to do more tha...

SPORTS TRACK TO THE FORE Largest Track Squads in History of B.C. Report to Coach Ryder Daily [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 April 1920
SPORTS TRACK TO THE FORE Largest Track Squads in History of B.C. Report to Coach Ryder Daily All doubt as to the ability of Coach Ryder to round out a track team from the large number of aspiring and hopeful candidates who are reporting for practice daily, is no longer entertained by Boston College men. "Jack" Ryder has proved what a coach can do with a squad of earnest, willing and persevering athletes. He has given us a team that is really representative of B. C. Our relay team is second to none in the Intercollegiate ranks. It demonstrated its worth at the Legion meet by defeating the splendid B. A. A. quartet. Individual stars of the squad have brought our name to the fore in track circles by their recordbreaking feats. "Jake" Driscoll holds the Bishop Hayes and Colonel Gaston trophies for unexcelled competition on the boards. On Wednesday, the 21st of April, in the Federal Reserve Bank meet in New York, he finished second to Homer Baker in the halfmile. In the same meet, Walter...
RESIGNATION OF COACH WHITE ACCEPTED Came as a Complete Surprise [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 April 1920
RESIGNATION OF COACH WHITE ACCEPTED Came as a Complete Surprise The resignation of Coach White of the baseball team was tendered to the Athletic Association early in the week. The resignation was promptly accepted, as it was felt necessary to procure a new mentor as soon as possible. The action of the coach came as a complete surprise to the student body, although it had been generally felt/that dissatisfaction existed,, owing t-p the, poor showing of the team, which is a squad of much better calibre than those of the last few years. It is expected that a new coach will be appointed within the next few days. Already the names of several men prominently identified with baseball are under consideration. In the meantime Captain Bond will take charge of the squad.

"JAKE" DRISCOLL ADDS ANOTHER TROPHY TO HIS COLLECTION Wins Carlin Prize in Brooklyn [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 April 1920
"JAKE" DRISCOLL ADDS ANOTHER TROPHY TO HIS COLLECTION Wins Carlin Prize in Brooklyn On Saturday night of last week, "Jake" Driscoll once more showed his superiority over the ,pick of New York's middle distance stars in the Col. Carlin special 880 yd. race. The race was the principal event of the 47th Regiment games held in Brooklyn, but did not measure up to what was expected, owing to the failure of Homer Baker, the New York champ, to appear at the mark. "Jake" ran his customary race, being content to trail the field till the final lap, when he uncorked a prolonged sprint, which gave him an easy victory. Second iplace was captured by Wigger of the Paulist A. C, and third place by Rielly of the Knights of St. Anthony. The time, 2 min., 4 sec, was exceptionally fast for an indoor half mile.
