CLOSE COMPETITION EXPECTED AT N. E. INTERCOLLEGIATE Tech Picked to Win; B.C. Enters Strong Team [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 May 1920
CLOSE COMPETITION EXPECTED AT N. E. INTERCOLLEGIATE Tech Picked to Win; B.C. Enters Strong Team Today and tomorrow at Tech Field tin best that the N. E. Intercollegiate Association has to offer will be placed upon the track and field to battle for athletic supremacy. The meet promises to be the finest ever held under the auspices of the Association. An unprecedented number of entries have been made, something over four hundred, which ensures close to three hundred competing gladiators, representing every Xew England institution of prominence except Yale, Harvard and Dartmouth. Fresh from her victory al the Eastern Intercollegiate, held at Springfield two weeks ago, Boston College is a dangerous opponent for (he squad of Mass. Tech, which is picked Uy the newspaper experts to win. Tech possesses a well-balanced aggregation on the track and appears to be the strongest of all the competitors in the field events. Yet B. C.is probably a bit stronger in the century, quarter, half-mile and...

OUR TURF DIGGERS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 May 1920
OUR TURF DIGGERS The remarkable progress of track under the guidance of Jack Ryder, has called for unstinted praise in wide circles. A sport which a few years back lured but few to the cinders, is now on such a basis that it is on a par with our other athletic endeavors. Every afternoon sees a sturdy collection of white clad athletes to condition themselves for B. C. victories. The year has exceeded all anticipation of fr/en the most sanguine. The triumphs of our Relay Team at the Penn. Games; the bagging of the Eastern Intercollegiates; the presence in our midst of recognized champions, —all indicate that our track team has arrived. Let the paean be raised, and if we come through tomorrow —how about two paeans?
START THE GAME [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 May 1920
START THE GAME Much has been said to urge the students to support the baseball team by attendance at games. The response has been favorable but far from what it could be. It is generally the stunt to bemoan the lack of spirit, but in this instance, another factor may well be introduced. Many of the men live a considerable distance from the Heights and have to calculate on train schedules. It is unjust to accuse them as lacking in any degree, if the present practice of starting the games from a quarter to three-quarters of an hour after the time appointed continues. It would seem that by 3.30, both teams should be ready to start play. If the usual preliminary debate between officials is to be countenanced, why not feature it and make the participants address the stands. Give the out-of-town fans a fair deal. To date they have been treated to fine exhibitions of fungo batting and the quintessence of gesticulation by wellintentioned coaches, but the early innings have marked tkeir depa...
MARQUETTE HOLDS PRIZE DEBATE Henry Foley, '22, Wins the James A. Dorsey Medal [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 May 1920
MARQUETTE HOLDS PRIZE DEBATE Henry Foley, '22, Wins the James A. Dorsey Medal On Wednesday, May 12th, in the college assembly hall, before a goodly gathering of students, friends, fathers and mothers, the Marquette prize team displayed very laudably the debating talent of B. C. The subject debated was: "Resolved, that the Initiative and Referendum should be adopted in national affairs," and was upheld by Messrs. Tucker, Magennis and Crane, for the affirmative, and Messrs. Comber, Foley and Joyce, for the negative. Henry Foley of Sophomore "B" was declared the winner by the judges, Messrs. "Dan" Coakley, "Pat" Campbell, and Wm. T. A. Fitzgerald; and was awarded the gold medal donated by James A. Dorsey. Henry was at his best. His arguments were sound, and were based on three ideas (1) The Initiative and Referendum in national affairs is impracticable; and (2) it is dangerous; and (3) unjust; his diction was excellent, and his gestures forceful. All speakers showed that their speeches...

SPORTS TUFTS 3—B. C. 2 Tufts Rides In a Winner [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 May 1920
SPORTS TUFTS 3—B. C. 2 Tufts Rides In a Winner Playing their first game under the eyes of Coach McCarthy, B. C. displayed a snappy brand of playing and proved that discipline was all that was necessary to make the team a winner. Fitzy kept the hits scattered and but one error was registered. General opinion was that the umpiring could have been improved on, especially on the play at the plate when Bill Dempsey seemed to have a wide margin of safety. The game is in the books, however, and it is with no intention to detract from Tufts' fine playing that we recall the incident. The only scoring by Boston College came in the first inning. Dempsey singled and Bond reached first on his bunt. Luke Urban lifted the ball for a triple and both Dempsey and Bond counted. The score:

PLENTY OF THRILLS IN THE COLBY-BOSTON COLLEGE GAME There Were Individual Stars, But the Victory Belongs to All [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 May 1920
PLENTY OF THRILLS IN THE COLBY-BOSTON COLLEGE GAME There Were Individual Stars, But the Victory Belongs to All The Colby-Boston College game on Tuesday was stirring. Usually there is one incident chiefly responsible for victory or defeat, but after this game it was impossible to give any one player credit for the success. However, our team was victorious, 7 to 6. Colby was in the lead on two occasions and Boston College was at the head three times. In the seventh inning Bill Dempsey tied the score with a home run and soon after Capt. Billy Bond tallied, giving his team tne lead, 5 to 4. In the eighth, with Swan and Haley en base, Cody hit savagely over second and Swan scored with the tying run. Dempsey again proved his worth when he hit neatly, allowing rialey to score the winning run. Mullowney replaced Kelley in the ninth and the visitors were unable to accustom themselves to the change in pace. He fanned the first batter and the next man popped weakly to Billy Bond. Then Taylor, ...

"BILLY" NOLAN PULLS LIGAMENT IN PRACTICE Star Track Man May Be Out Tomorrow [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 May 1920
"BILLY" NOLAN PULLS LIGAMENT IN PRACTICE Star Track Man May Be Out Tomorrow "Billy" Nolan, star track man, was a victim of an accident which may prevent him from competing in the New England "champs" tomorrow. While training for the broad jump last Thursday he pulled a ligament in his leg, which may keep him out of competition for a few weeks. This accident is to be regretted all the more coming when it did, as Coach Jack Ryder had been banking on Nolan to score in the 220-yd. dash and the broad jump, which he won at the Eastern Intercollegiates at Springfield two weeks ago.
"ON THE WAY" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 May 1920
"ON THE WAY" We refuse to alibi —it was a good game. Nine hits makes the box score look good—heap good. Urban's beautiful handling of Swan's perfect peg blighted a Tufts' score. "Red" Callahan smiled and smiled and smiled. Fallon's slight of hand work in the ninth dazzled Tommy Swan and dampened a rally. Dempsey's speed in stealing home was too much for the poor human eyes of his honor the Umps. We are planning a big barbecue for the afternoon of May 31. White Elephant meat will be featured. Make your reservations now.
"ARRIVED" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 21 May 1920
"ARRIVED" O Puer! We're off! There was plenty of excitement, for those who had the heart to stay until six o'clock. It may be possible to get the games started before 3:45. We don't know. Dempsey would be a wonderful ball-player if he could hit —a brace of singles and a home run looks bad for an afternoon's work. Colby's center-fielder had a tough day. Billy Bond is back. He played a perfect game in the field and was there with the stick at the "croocial" moments. Please ball team, if you love us, bring back the Bulldog's other ear!
