B. C. MASCOT [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 May 1920
B. C. MASCOT During the fall of 1919, when the Cavanaugh-coached football machine was smashing its way to supremacy, it was painfully evident to not a few that the newspaper accounts and cartoons of the victories lacked a zest that could have been easily added. It was only necessary to feature a punch that was predominantly B. C.'s. This could have been done had we a mascot on which to pin the laurels. One of our newspapers, under date 'Of Sunday, May 9, ran a cartoon which served to bring home the point so strikingly that we have at hand a letter from a loyal son who prefers to be known as "The Old Man," vigorously demanding action. The cut in question, dealing with the recent accomplishment of the trackmen in the Eastern Intercollegiate Games, depicts a stray cat, symbolic of B. C, feeding from a bowl of table scraps. That sort of thing is hardly elevating but still, we must trust to the imaginative faculty of the artist, unless we offer him the idea ourselves. 'The fault is ours ...

Sports FORDHAM 2—B. C. 0 Home Team Falters in 11th Frame [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 May 1920
Sports FORDHAM 2—B. C. 0 Home Team Falters in 11th Frame On Friday, a week ago, a thrilling game was played at the Heights by Fordham and Boston College. Nine scoreless innings and the tenth frame also scoreless, but two errors in the 12th gave Fordham two runs and the game. Jim Fitzpatrick and Waters pitched real ball. Waters was victor —but only because his team played with surer fielding and because the Maroon and Gold batters have not been batting this season. Much credit is due the former Watertown High battery for Fordham's victory. Both boys played three seasons for Watertown, and while there Waters pitched a no-hit no-run game against Waltham High. Against the B. C. team Friday he pitched 11 full innings of steady and effective ball. Fitzpatrick pitched a fine game too, and was master in the pinches. The visitors from the Bronx tried something in the seventh inning, but Jim shattered their hopes. Fitzpatrick put his "all" on the ball and fanned the next three batters. This f...
"O TEMPORE, O MORES!" B. C. Loses to C. U. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 May 1920
"O TEMPORE, O MORES!" B. C. Loses to C. U. A Shakespearean play was produced on Alumni Field last Monday (B. C. and Catholic University furnishing the players) by name —"The Comedy of Errors." Boston College played the roll of "Errors." Some say it was a Tragedy, and indeed it was, for Jim Kelley and Luke Urban did not deserve the defeat of 7 to 3.

"Hot Ones" —Fordham [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 May 1920
"Hot Ones" —Fordham Aw-w-w-w, Freddie! Russ Haley had a field day in the field. Fordham went big in the seventh and eleventh. Need we say more? Billy Bond's batting featured the struggle. He poled out more hits than all the rest of his team-mates together. Prof. J. Fitzpatrick is a glutton for Mathematics. Problem: —Two men on bases —none out. Solution: —Fan the next three batters. Luke Urban is having a streak of hard luck. Having one of Waters' fast ones hop off your head is not the last word in luxury. "Not So Torrid" — C. U. 'ine cheering section looked tired— what there was of it. The team hit twice as well as in the Fordham game. Dempsey is a mean man on the bases. His speed accounted for B. C.'s first run. A coach will cure the epidemic ol errors. Under the circumstances neither the team nor the management can be blamed. Start winning now. In the words of the Talmud "Let's go." "Warmed Over"—B. U. B. U. game cancelled. If what might have happened had happened, it would have b...
DECLARATION OF CANDIDATES [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 May 1920
DECLARATION OF CANDIDATES To the Students of Boston College: I wish to announce my candidacy for presidency of the Boston College Athletic Association for the coming college year, 1920-1921. Thanking you in advance for your thoughtful consideration, I am, JAMES E. DONAHUE. I wish to announce my candidacy for president of the Athletic Association. Realizing that the position demands one who has had real business experience, my platform will be based strictly on business principles. I contend that the office should be filled, not by a man elected through sheer sentiment, but by a man who is elected because the student body feels that he is the one best fitted for the position. WALTER A. CREMEN, '21. Announcing my candidacy for the presidency of the Athletic Association. Permit me to call attention to my activity in football, baseball, track and boxing. EDWARD C. "TED" MADDEN, Manager of the Co-op. Believing that the present officers of the Athletic Association have started a construct...

NEW BASEBALL COACH SIGNS Tom McCarthy, Red Sox Scout, to Guide Team [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 May 1920
NEW BASEBALL COACH SIGNS Tom McCarthy, Red Sox Scout, to Guide Team On Tuesday of this week, Graduate Manager Reynolds signed Tom McCarthy, former big league player, to a three-year contract to manage Boston College baseball teams. This action was taken immediately following Johnny Evers' telegram stating he would be unable to close the deal to make him B. C.'s coach. The new coach has been actively identified with baseball for a number of years. During the past year he managed the Newark team of the International league. He coached the Holy Cross team at the time when that school was represented by such men as Bill Carrigan ana Jack Barry, former Red Sox managers. He also coached the Dartmouth team some years ago. Now that the coaching situation has cleared up, we may look for the baseball team to come out of the slump it has dropped into during the last few weeks, and develop into a machine symbolic of B. C, pep and fight. The most important part of the season is yet to come, for ...

SNAPPY EXHIBITION BY CUTBILL [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 May 1920
SNAPPY EXHIBITION BY CUTBILL When the supply of zeros at the score board was running short during the game with Fordham and the suspense grew irksome, a little practice race on the track came as a relief. Harry Cutbill, prospective Olympic miler and theological student at B. U., showed his metal in a race with Nutter of the B. A. A. Much handclapping greeted the appearance of Cutbill who had run a mile when Nutter took up the race. The way the sturdy miler traveled over the second mile had one student sure Cutbill had discovered perpetual motion.

JUNIOR SMOKER PUT ACROSS Morgan Ryan Keeps Things Moving [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 14 May 1920
JUNIOR SMOKER PUT ACROSS Morgan Ryan Keeps Things Moving The postponed smoker of the Junior Class was held last Thursday evening in the assembly hall at the Heights. Much credit is due to Pres. Coyle and the committee in charge for the evening of "live" entertainment, and those students who made the long journey out of the Heights were very amply rewarded. Morgan Ryan capably filled the duty of chairman of the evening, being introduced by Pres. Coyle. Coach Jack Ryder, the first speaker, made a short but earnest appeal for spirit and cooperation in all college activities. After some lively cheers, led by Phil Corrigan, the Banjo Club rendered popular songs. Rev. Fr. Curry of Roxbury, the next speaker, took for his theme "Unity and Co-operation," and proposed the awarding of a Laetare Medal to the B. C. man who, during his college course, had done the most to promote the advancement of the Maroon and Gold in all branches of college activity. A fast bout was then staged by "King Baggo...
