MUSICAL CLUBS HAVE MERRY EVENING [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 November 1920
MUSICAL CLUBS HAVE MERRY EVENING On Tuesday evening the college building rocked and swayed to the syncopated and classic tune of the members of the Musical Clubs of Boston College, who staged their first social and entertainment in the Assembly Hall. After displaying a mimic battle of the future H. C. —B. C. game down on the field, the members of the band and Glee Club, numbering about 65, partook of the pleasant and substantial surprise which Charlie Wellington had in store for them. At seven, the fireworks, including cigars and cigarettes, began. The band blew the lid oil the entertainment with a few snappy selections. Then followed Johnnie Ecker and Martin Murray with a few solos and those who heard them cannot say that good soloists are lacking at B. C. But the evening would not have been a success unless Walter Mayo and Bob Merrick, accompanied by Eddie McGreenery, had performed. And they certainlyrendered in a most delightful fashion the "Alpine Violets." After the movies Bill...

K. of C. CLUB TO INCREASE PRESENT MEMBERSHIP Charles A. Tucker, '22, Addresses Sophomores While the votes were: being counted during- the Sophomore election last Friday, Charles A. Tucker of the Junior Class spoke to the Sophomores about the Knights of Columbus Club. In brief, K. C.is already for lb C. and Mr. Tucker said B. C. should be more for K. C. Many Boston College men who belong to the Knights of Columbus have not yet joined the club and should do so at once. Men who have not yet joined the Knights of Columbus should apply to the club for admission to the order. Mr. Tucker explained, in reply to a question, that while Boston College was not given permission to establish a separate council, it was given the privilege of forming a K. of C. Club with power to initiate members. A council was not formed because it was deemed better to have scattered among the many councils Boston College men who would assume leadership in the different branches and add to the prestige of Boston C...

MARQUETTE DEBATING SOCIETY RESUMES MEETINGS Paul J. Wenners, '23, Elected Chairman of Standing Committee [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 November 1920
MARQUETTE DEBATING SOCIETY RESUMES MEETINGS Paul J. Wenners, '23, Elected Chairman of Standing Committee On Friday, Nov. 5, the second regular meeting of the Marquette Debating Society was held in Junior B. After the weekly reports of the several officers had been submitted and accepted, the regular debate took place. The question was ''Resolved, —That immigration to the United States be restricted for a period of five years," the affirmative being ably upheld by Messrs. C. Murphy and B. Loftus, the negative by Messrs. Brennan and R. Kavanaugh. The members of the affirmative showed that the immigrants who are entering the country today, go for the most part into the factories where they compete with native labor, often forcing Americans out of work. This results from the fact that foreigners are willing to work for a lower wage than Americans who need more money because their standard of living is higher. Mr. Loftus declared that it was impossible to hire foreign farm laborers. Mr. ...

Freshman Night Still a Mystery Yea! The Class of '24 are off! They tell us that on Friday night November 19, they are going to raise the Tower off the Heights with the biggest class event that has ever happened at good old R. C. They tell us that they are staging just a few bouts between some of the cleverest boxers in the state. They go along and enumerate, but forbid us to publish yet some of the star performers of the evening. However, you will read and hear about this later. Just now, Freshman, get ready and keep this date, Nov. 19, before your eyes. When Heaphy roves, his opponents "rave".
INTELLECTUAL HASH [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 November 1920
INTELLECTUAL HASH By PHELIX PHRAPPE The other night I sat before the fireplace —in other words before the furncae —and "logi.shed." After I had drawn the lucky number for the Maroon and Gold Club's spas n, my thoughts turned to the inmates of the college. They reminded me of a huge order of intellectual hash. Pienty of potatoes in the lay-out. Some very tough. You fathom my inYou know those heel and toe artists, the 2.30 speed maniacs, the gravel scrapers, the dusty shoe pedlars. They wouldn't tarry at the Heights if George Washington promised to tell a lie at 2.31. They're directing the dogs towards Lake street before the bell stops ringing. Talk about flying —those birds pass down the driveway like a stampede of winged deer. All you can see is feet. The doors lose a bushel of splinters in the rush. Pep l Why they must have dynamite in their heels. They don't know that the chimes ring at quatrer to three. They're popular too —like a holiday on Saturday. The only acquaintance they h...
THE IC-CUP CONTEST The Hellenic Handicap [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 November 1920
THE IC-CUP CONTEST The Hellenic Handicap "Lo, the Freshies feel poetic And in feet not economic They boast to be athletic, In their panegyric comic, Celebrating twenty-four. "Here's for them a test scholastic And a cerebral emetic Which will render brains elastic If they are but sympathetic To the plan of Sophomore." To be laconic, inviting both sides co show themselves philanthropic critics rather than dyspeptic cynics, we propose a contest between Freshman and Sophomore on the largest number by arithmetic calculation of Greek etymologic derivations from Plato's Socratic Apology and ending in "ic." All departments, logic and metaphysics, astronomic and geologic, ethics and physics, rhetoric and poetic, athletics and dramatics, are enthusiastic about it. A systemic and and not a chaotic or fantastic thing is this Sohpomore plan. We cannot be too emphatic in asserting that the basic idea is to be energetic if not in any gigantic or microscopic way, at least with no mere sporadic, but...
B. C. Club, Lowell, Elects Officer [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 12 November 1920
B. C. Club, Lowell, Elects Officer The Lowell Boston College Club met in the Fulton room on Thursday, Nov. 4, for the purpose of electing officers for the ensuing year: Pics., J. Powers, '21; V. P., W. Markham '22; Treas., P. Foisey '22: Sec. G. Keefe, '22. The best joke heard this week. Last Monday, Boston University gave a celebration in honor of their football team and especially in honor of their centre, one Mr. Wheeler who, they claim, is a candidate for All-American honors as he outplayed one Mr. Ileaphy of Boston College and made him retire from the game. I wonder if they know any more funny ones.
