"POEM" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 29 October 1920
"POEM" (By A Poet) The twinkling eyes of night flash out To light the sable sky, And through a pathway diamond set The gleaming moon rides by. But one bright star swims higher, Above the brilliant pack. Stops in its climbing, rests, serene, And that star's name is Jack. Pretty clever we calls it, and for the benefit of our Arabian subscribers, we might add that Jack's last name is Heaphy.

MARQUETTE DEBATING SOCIETY IN FULL SWING Members Signify Approval of Senator Harding's Candidacy The first regular meeting of the Marquette Debating Society was held last Friday. At this meeting a hotly-con-tested debate took place, the subject being "Resolved, —That the best interests of the United States will be served by the election of the Republican candidates in the coming national election." The affirmative was upheld by Messrs. Wenners and Barry, the negative by Messrs. Davis and Lynch, all of the Class of 1923.

The voluntary debate period brought to light many splendid speakers who will be a great help to the society in its inter-col-Icgiate contests. The next regular meeting will be held Friday, Nov. 5. The subject for the debate wi...
Sophomores to Elect Officers [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 29 October 1920
Sophomores to Elect Officers This afternoon the Sophomore Class will hold its annual election of class officers which has been somewhat delayed because the Sophomores have been so busy studying chemistry till dark, or attending to the many other duties of a Sophomore. However, this delay is only a temporary handicap. Plans for the social season of the class will be formulated, and steps taken to insure that the Sophomore Class will not lag behind the others in the activities of the year. President Joseph Comber of the Sophomore Class, who is also president of the Marquette Debating Society, has announced that the regular meeting of the society will not be held today, in order to allow all Sophomores to be present at the election.
BILL DEMPSEY, '20, PRESIDENT OF CLEVELAND B. C. CLUB Former Track Captain and Baseball Star Writes from Home of New World's Champions [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 29 October 1920
BILL DEMPSEY, '20, PRESIDENT OF CLEVELAND B. C. CLUB Former Track Captain and Baseball Star Writes from Home of New World's Champions A few days ago we received a letter from Bill Dempsey, last year's track captain, announcing the formation of the Boston College club of Cleveland, and containing other items which will be of interest to "Dimo's" classmates and friends. Bill's letter: Dear : Greeting's to all from the home of the new World's Baseball Champs. I received today the first issue of The Heights so I thought that some of the fellows at college would like to hear from one of the gang who is out here in Cleveland working his way to the first million. Now I agree with most men of the 1920 class that the first million is the hardest to obtain. Since the long distance B. C. Clubs are now in session, I might inform you that the B. C. Club of Cleveland has semiweekly meetings and although it has but two members, (John C. Donahue, '20 being the other) we hope to let Cleveland know t...
HOW TO BE COLLEGIATE [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 29 October 1920
HOW TO BE COLLEGIATE By PHELIX PHRAPPE When skidding on your O'Sullivan's along the boardwalk, never forget that you are a college chap and therefore should be distinct from the rest of the non-essentials. Accordingly we are herewith and forthwith publishing a few tips to guide you in being collegiate. First, assume a look of intelligence by parting your hair in the middle and raising a young moustache. Then dress as follows: Never have creases in your "jeans" and always wear a suit that would make a rag bag look like a Prince Albert. Find an old soft hat without any ribbon and fold it so that it resembles one of Napoleon's cast-offs. Place it well down on the forehead, completely covering both eyebrows and you will be protected from sunburn and wrinkles on your forehead. The hat is very important in the collegiate make-up. The more dents it has, the more collegiate you are. Always wear cuffless trousers frayed at the bottom. They present a very soothing appearance and prevent your ...

Sports CROSS COUNTRY TEAM MEETS TUFTS HARRIERS THIS AFTERNOON Jimmy O'Brien's Men Intend to Wipe Out Defeat Suffered at Hands of Bowdoin Last Week. [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 29 October 1920
Sports CROSS COUNTRY TEAM MEETS TUFTS HARRIERS THIS AFTERNOON Jimmy O'Brien's Men Intend to Wipe Out Defeat Suffered at Hands of Bowdoin Last Week. This afternoon the cross-country team will try to offset the defeat which it received from Rowdoin one week ago. Tufts will be here looking for victoryThe team has improved since the Eowdoin meet and is out to redeem itself. Although defeated, our harriers suffered no discredit as the Maine college is noted for its strong cross-country teams. This is the first year that Boston College has taken a very active interest in the hill and dale work. "Dinger" Dolan and Capt. Jimmy O'Brien were the first two men to finish for B. C, capturing fourth and fifth places respectively. Both these men are in good condition and with the addition of Jim Caffrey, the former Tufts star, the team has been greatly strengthened. Tufts will rely on the Doherty brothers to finish first and second for them. These two men have established a fine reputation as long...
TED MADDEN SENDS CONGRATULATIONS ON YALE VICTORY [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 29 October 1920
TED MADDEN SENDS CONGRATULATIONS ON YALE VICTORY The news of our great victory over Yale has traveled all over the continent, penetrating even the aviation fields in Wyoming. Our old friend, "Ted" Madden, of grid-iron fame sent a congratulatory letter in which he states that all Wyoming was overjoyed at the Boston College triumph. His letter: A. T. O. House, Laramie, Wyoming. Dear Just a word to let you know I have received your letter, and .certainly am very much obliged. All Wyoming is tickled foolish over the Boston College victory over Yale. All the West is pulling for the Maroon and Gold, and I sure hope that the eleven will make the trip to the Pacific Coast this year. Extend my congratulations to all the players, "Cav" and Frank Reynolds. Please see if you can't send me a big B. C. banner, and two crescent seals as soon as possible. I am enclosing a check to cover the expense. I have permission to hang a banner in the main hall. I remain, As ever, Ted.
CORRECTION [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 29 October 1920
CORRECTION The cross-country meet which was scheduled to be held with Tufts tomorrow has been cancelled and our team will leave tonight for Orono, Maine, where they will meet the University of Maine team tomorrow. Capt. O'Brien, Caffrey, Dolan, Deeley, McGovern, Russell, and Mahoney are the men who will make the trip. The reason of the cancellation of the Tufts' meet was the lack of the Tufts' college authorities to decide whether they would have a cross-country team or not. Early this year they decided not to have a hill and dale team but later changed their minds and a meet was arranged. The contracts were sent but instead of receiving them back, Manager Donahue received a letter stating that the Medford College had decided not to have a team. After the defeat by Bowdoin, Tufts immediately got into communication with Boston College and desired to run us on the date which had been set. We agreed to meet them if the race with the University of Maine were cancelled; otherwise we can ...
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK OF OUR FOOTBALL TEAM [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 29 October 1920
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK OF OUR FOOTBALL TEAM The following letter with clipping attached was received at the Athletic office during the week. Newark, N. J. Oct. 20, 1920. Moderator of Athletics, Boston College, Dear Sir: — Am enclosing a cartoon and a sporting editorial which appeared in the Newark Evening News, Oct. 18. As Catholic activities get but little space in the Press, and as cartoons of this sort are exceptional, I thought you would be interested in it after your victory over Yale. Wishing your team luck and success, I am. Respectfully yours, A Holy Cross Man. The text of the clipping: "Rather than supplying an upset, the victory of the Boston College players at New Haven seems to carry the threat that the Hub players are about to make good the prophecy ventured a year ago, that they would become more and more a power to be reckoned with as the seasons pile up. In conversation with a football student a few weeks ago Tad Jones flatly declared that he was going to have the '...
