KEEP WALKING [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 15 October 1920
KEEP WALKING We try to select a topic of general interest. This week, the task is a simple one. The college is humming with "Yale, Heaphy—Callahan—Bowl!" Not a few of you plan to make the trip over the road riding when you can, walking when it can't be helped—but always moving towards New Haven. Such persistence is to be commended. You won't use it all on the trip. Save a little for daily application to sore spots. When you entered Boston College, you started somewhere. You won't have "arrived" until you get your degree. There will be times during the year when you can't get a lift, when your degree seems far away. When you can't ride, start walking. Walking will keep you in the race until the going smooths out. You expect the team to win. You'll be disappointed if it doesn't. If you think it over, you may come to the conclusion that you are asking too much. The team that will trot into the Bowl tomorrow is the best team in Boston College. You know the men. They'll play the game for...

Ryan, '21, was elected president; Joseph Doyle, '21, vice-president; William Salmon, '21, secretary-treasurer; and Joseph Pate, '21, manager. About thirty candidates reported to try out for the coming college play entitled "A Night Off", written by Augustine Daly. All the candidates displayed such great ability and talent that the greatest difficulty facing the officers is to select the men who are more nearly perfect than the others. To judge from the talent shown at the meeting Wednesday, the coming production will be a complete success.
CHEERFULNESS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 15 October 1920
CHEERFULNESS There is no greater everyday virtue than cheerfulness. This quality in man among men is like sunshine to the day, or gentle, renewing moisture to parched herbs. The light of a cheerful face diffuses itself, and communicates the happy spirit that inspires it. The sourest temper must sweeten in the atmosphere of continuous good humor. As well might fog and cloud and vapor hope to cling to the sunillumined landscape, as the blues and moroseness to combat jovial speech and exhilarating laughter. Be cheerful always. There is no patch but will be easier traveled, no load but will be lighter, no shadow on heart or brain but will lift sooner in presence of a determined cheerfulness.

PRE-MEDICAL BIOLOGY COURSE WIDENS SCOPE Increased Labors for Our Future Doctors [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 15 October 1920
PRE-MEDICAL BIOLOGY COURSE WIDENS SCOPE Increased Labors for Our Future Doctors In order to meet the extended entrance requirements of some of the Medical Schools, the class of Pre-Medical Biology has added to its number of hours of lecture and laboratory work. Both the First and Second Year Classes are now required to attend two lectures and two laboratory periods each week. This arrangement, while more than satisfying the demands of any Medical School, gives ample opportunity of covering in a very detailed manner the broad fields of Botany, Zoology and allied sciences, and of acquiring the training and foundation necessary for later studies. At Harvard, Tufts, and other Medical Schools, the graduates of last year are achieving splendid results of their training and preparation here, and it is hoped that their continued success will stand representative of B. C. In weekly papers and discussions, topics of daily Biological interest outside the scope of the regular course of lectures...

NEW UPHOLSTERY IN SMOKING ROOM [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 15 October 1920
NEW UPHOLSTERY IN SMOKING ROOM Since the college reopened a few weeks ago, the student body has been enjoying a smoking room well adorned and centrally located, but have we ever endeavored to show our appreciation to the person in charge of this room? "Billy," as he is commonly called by all the students, possesses a surname, and in social circles he is known as Mr. William Frazier. It is due to the efforts of little "Billy" that we enjoy such pleasant smoking and dining rooms. He intends not only to decorate such fine rooms, but also to supply them with the necessary requisites. If it is possible he will decorate the room with ancient oriental rugs and a suitable case in which to keep the trophies awarded to the college for athletic achievements and intellectual prowess.
FR. DONNELLY PUBLISHES BOOK ON PUBLIC SPEAKING A Jesuit on Dull Preaching [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 15 October 1920
FR. DONNELLY PUBLISHES BOOK ON PUBLIC SPEAKING A Jesuit on Dull Preaching (N. Y. Ihr.ild, October 10, 1920) Father Francis P. Donnelly has just published a book for speakers and writers. It deals with what is vulgarly known as "pep" or "jazz" in language, although the scholarly Jesuit does not use this slang. He calls his volume "The Art of Interesting" and he makes no bones about the tiresomeness of speakers — particularly preachers—who are afraid to let go of trite forms of expression. He finds that wearisome preaching is defended on the plea of dignity: "Undoubtedly. But what is dignified? Is it indecorous to speak of washing dishes, mending clothes, fertilizing fig trees, mixing bread, feeding pigs? Yet of these the Gospels speak. ... It might be said that there are worse things in preaching than a lack of dignity; and one thing which suggests itself for honorable mention is slumberous triteness." Father Donnelly urges preachers not to "take the life and emotion out of the Gospe...
