SENIORS SHOW THE WAY Graduating Class First to Organize Baseball Nine [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 April 1920
SENIORS SHOW THE WAY Graduating Class First to Organize Baseball Nine Quite in keeping with their spirit of initiative in class athletics, the seniors have organized a baseball team that aspires to emulate the good work of the class football team of last fall. The team has had little practice, but Manager Grimm reports that the ability shown warrants the prediction that the class will possess a nine worthy in every respect to represent it in not only the interclass games, but also in conflicts with the second teams of other -colleges. When the teams representing the freshman, sophomore and junior classes are formed, the managers should confer with Manager Grimm for the purpose of arranging a schedule. It is urged that this be done as soon as possible in order that the games may begin without delay. It is certain that much rivalry will characterize the contests, as the past has demonstrated that all interclass competition is fraught with intense interest and a true sporting spirit of...
BASEBALL TEAM PUTS IN A STRENUOUS WEEK Many Big Games Coming [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 April 1920
BASEBALL TEAM PUTS IN A STRENUOUS WEEK Many Big Games Coming When Captain Bond brought his team back from the Southern trip, it was a sorry-looking lot of ball players, with sore arms, injuries, and everything that goes to wreck a ball team. The weather here prevented the team from having more than one or two practice sessions before the Vermont game. Consequently it could not be expected to play errorless ball under such conditions against a team which is admitted to be one of the best college teams in the East. The continued miserable weather of last week likewise prevented the squad from getting the practice which it so badly needed, and also caused the postponement of two games, Rhode Island State and Bowdoin. But this week, favored with better weather, and with the team completely recovered from the effects of the Southern trip, the ball-tossers have been driven at a fast clip every afternoon. They are fast moulding into a ball team which is potentially more powerful than that ...

AS WE SEE EM [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 30 April 1920
AS WE SEE EM by "BOSCO" Brethren, glance and titter, read and lacrimate. We have sold our hammer and bought a celluloid rattle. Behold the Pink Ribbon Edition of the Koll Dm, Neat but not gaudy; safe for the baby to play with; can be scratched only on the box; guaranteed not to buckle, bend or fray at the edges; will not pique the most sensitive nature nor lure away the most loosely tied Angora; makes the Sewing Circle look like a Dime Thriller. Eureka! also Bevo and Anzac! We shall please everyone, offend no one. It would be cruel to say that the Glee Club Concert was a howling success. Therefore we won't say it. The twin lakes are looking so twinsy—doncherknow ? And the tulip beds will soon be in bloom. Such an inspiring sight they make as they nod their dainty heads to the bright young students rushing eagerly to their lessons. O p-tish! Patient peruser, prepare for a joque. This joque has been sterilized, cauterized and criticized. Even now we submit it in fear and trembling, le...

WARREN CLEAR '17 WRITES FROM CHINA The Heights Reaches Far East [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 May 1920
WARREN CLEAR '17 WRITES FROM CHINA The Heights Reaches Far East Dear : - Your letter of the loth of February just reached me, after many delays en route. I was delighted to get it. As for myself, I am the most fortunate chap alive. I just received the finest assignment in the Army— at least the most enjoyable and interesting. After some preliminary reconnaisance work along the Peking-Mukden R. R. and the Shanghai-Nanking, I was recommended for assignment as Asst. Intelligence Officer, Philippine Department, which embraces China and Japan. Strange to say, Maj.-Gen. Kernan, commanding the department, gave this little fellow the assignment, and since Jan. 28th I've been all over three of the interior provinces and seeing the real China that so few get a chance to know. I thought I was in China the past eight months, but I am afraid I was just on the edge of it. Two of us went by rail from Tientsin to Peking, thence to Shanghai, and went 600 miles up the Yangtze to Hankow, on tne gunboa...

B. C. WILL MEET FORDHAM Fulton Speakers to Travel to New York for Debate The Fulton Debating Society will send its Intercollegiate team to Fordham University to engage in a return contest with the New York speakers on May 14th.

The speakers who are to represent the college are: Edward L. Roddan '20; Richard S. McShane '20, and Francis DeCelles '21. The question is, "Resolved: That an anti-strike provision should be added to the Federal transportation act." Boston College will defend the negative side of tne question.
FAMOUS POET ENTERTAINS STUDENT BODY Mr. Thomas A. Daly Recites Original Verses [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 May 1920
FAMOUS POET ENTERTAINS STUDENT BODY Mr. Thomas A. Daly Recites Original Verses On Monday afternoon an opportunity was afforded the students of listening to an address by Mr. Tom Daly, the renowned poet, who occupies a prominent position not only in national but also in international literary circles. Mr. Daly's visit was of special interest to ns not only because of his reputation, but also because he is a graduate of one of our sister institutions, Fordham University. The poet recited a most charming group of simple verses, dealing with the every-day activities of the Irish and Italian peoples, each one of them treating some fine characteristic of the race. His rare good humor was an exceptional treat, and doubtless his visit served to dispel many of the impressions we have hitherto held regarding poets in general. Mr. Daly took occasion to discuss the merits of free verse and its chief exponent, Miss Amy Lowell, whom he mentioned as a poet "whose poetry is so bad that it is 'good....
DR. RYAN ADDRESSES SENIOR AND JUNIOR CLASSES Explains Situation of Industrial and Social Unrest [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 May 1920
DR. RYAN ADDRESSES SENIOR AND JUNIOR CLASSES Explains Situation of Industrial and Social Unrest On Friday of last week the members otf the Senior and Junior classes gathered together in the Assembly Hall, to listen to a very instructive lecture on the present situation as regards industrial and social unrest, by Dr. John A. Ryan, D.D., of Catholic University. Dr. Ryan is recognized as one of the leading authorities on industrial questions in t his country today, and consequently his lecture was extremely interesting in that it revealed 1o us the ideas of such an authority on an important subject. The speaker stated that the main feature of the controversy so far had been the general manifestation of selfishness on both sides. Demands for right on both sides have been growing steadily, and each has been less willing to make concessions to the other. He characterized the breaking up of the first labor conference at Washington, owing to the unwillingness of the employers to allow labor...

SENIOR ACTIVITIES IN WIND Committees for pre-Commencement Program Named The month of May brings home to our Senior olass many serious matters, which require equally serious and immediate attention. Commencement is but a short six weeks distant, which means that work on the class week program must start at once. The class week exercises and commencement are to be events never before equalled at Boston College, if the Seniors have anything to say about it. Elaborate preparations are soon to be begun, and it is with the sole idea of being well prepared to cope with a big matter in a big way that President Scanlon has already appointed several committees to formulate plans for the various activities that appear on the Senior program preceding Commencement. To take charge of the entertainment to be given at Nutting's this month, the following have been appointed: James P. Mclnerney, chairman; Arthur L. Hinchy, William Conway, Louis Kane, William Bond„ Charles McGill and Joseph P. Burke. ...

A. A. ELECTIONS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 7 May 1920
A. A. ELECTIONS According to schedule, elections will soon be held for the various offices in the Athletic Association. Here is a chance where the students at large have the power of putting in as their representatives, men who will be energetic in the pursuance of their duties. In years past, pre-election days have been provocative of much mirth in the unpledged and unconvinced voter. He has been assailed by friends of the candidates and by some of the candidates themselves with all conceivable arguments, calculated to swing his vote. Such a method of procedure must be frowned on. The presidency of the Students' Council earries with it important obligations, and the incumbent must be fitted for the position. It is clear then, that sufficient publicity should be given, that the aspirants may be known and their qualifications judged. It is required that fifty names be affixed to the nomination papers of a candidate and turned over to the powers that be. The Heights is desirous of see...
