MARQUETTE DEBATERS OPPOSE VOLSTEAD ACT Banquet Committee Makes Report [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1920
MARQUETTE DEBATERS OPPOSE VOLSTEAD ACT Banquet Committee Makes Report At the meeting of the Marquette Debating Society held last Friday, the Volstead Act received a severe drubbing at the hands of the Marquette debaters despite the fact that several speakers endeavored to defend it. The debaters declared that the act was passed without the approval of the people of the country; while the opposition asserted that insofar as the act was passed by the accredited representatives of the people, the whole nation practically concurred. As a matter of fact the members of the society failed to see it in that light. The affirmative also showed that the act was not being enforced, and since that was so the act in fact was a dead letter. In the rebuttal, a member of the affimative declared, "Surely the police should enforce the law but if the law cannot be enforced what can the police do?" The affirmative was awarded the verdict on the merits of the question as debated by a vote of 20 to 5; on ...

THANK YOU! [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1920
THANK YOU! Philosophers would have us believe that nothing in the world is perfect. That makes us worry. We were under the impression that our perfect football team had a perfect season. Regardless of the teachings of philosophers or the disappointed bleatings of "experts" we are still under that impression. There are more than a few that are willing to follow us in this error —which is not an error at all. The coach, the team, and everyone connected with the team, deserve all the praise we —or anyone else —can give them. We're proud of them and we have a right to be, but — We ought to forget our pride, muffle our horns, smother our red-fire and utter an honest "Thank you" in appreciation of the work that made the Boston College football team the Champions of the East. For Coach Cavanaugh, for the team, the for "subs", for the trainer, for the team's supporters —we have a heart-felt "Thank you", and may the EAGLE have another screaming season next fall.
Brosnahan Debaters Attack Smith-Towner Bill Today [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1920
Brosnahan Debaters Attack SmithTowner Bill Today The Brosnahan is fast becoming a deeprooted Boston College activity. Last Friday the society met to discuss the question, "Resolved: That voting should be compulsory." The debaters, Mr. F. Galligan and Mr. M. Keehane for the affirmative, opposing Mr. J. Sullivan and Mr. E. Callahan supporting the negative, presented their arguments fairly well. The debate, however, proved uninteresting, and all discussion from the floor was dispensed with. Today the society mets in Junior C to discuss a vital and important question which will prove to be a thriller from start to finish. Messrs. Monohan and Smith will defend the affirmative of the question "Resolved: That the Smith-Towner Bill should be adopted." Messrs. Delaney and O'Keefe will uphold the negative. The debate is open to all students.
SENIOR SMOKER ACCLAIMED BEST EVER 1500 Attend Big "Night Before" at City Club [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1920
SENIOR SMOKER ACCLAIMED BEST EVER 1500 Attend Big "Night Before" at City Club The biggest, best: and most enthusiastic ''Night Before" ever, was held last Friday evening in the auditorium of the City Club, under the direction of the Senior Class. Fully 1500 lively grads, old and young, and lusty-lunged students jammed the big hall, and cheered and sang at every opportunity. All in all it was a most successful affair with plenty of smokes, and with a variety of entertainment that shamed all former attempts. Harold J. Sullivan was an able chairman, and started the fireworks shortly after eight o'clock. With all due respect to the other guests that were present, our estimable football coach, Major Frank Cavanaugh, was the man of the hour, and when he came in, while Dan Gallagher had possession of the rostrum, he broke up the meeting temporarily, and the gathering cheered him for five minutes. During the course of his remarks, the great coach held the crowd with his magnetism. He cautio...

FRESHMAN SOCIAL A COMPLETE SUCCESS Varied Program Pleases Large Audience [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1920
FRESHMAN SOCIAL A COMPLETE SUCCESS Varied Program Pleases Large Audience On Friday, Nov. 19, the Freshman Class held its long-heralded social with complete satisfaction to all who attended the event. The festivities were opened by President John Monahan, who in a short talk advised the members of the class to become interested in the activities of the college. He urged the class to support athletics, the Brosnahan Debating Society, and. especially the Stylus and Heights. Not only by writing articles and securing advertisements, but by patronizing advertisers, can all the B. C. men aid the publications to produce the best possible results. Mr. Magee who was chairman, introduced the next speakers. Mr. Emmet Kelly delivered "Casey at the Bat"; Mr. James Dooling replied to the charge that Casey had failed dismally, and proved that Mr. Casey was still "there". The Freshman Orchestra then played several pieces, followed by vocal selections by a member of the Keith Circuit — Henry Boles as...
THE COLLEGE MAN [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1920
THE COLLEGE MAN There is no type of man, perhaps, of whom more diverse opinions arc held than the college man. To some he is laughably grotesque in his deportment, an. intellectual eccentric, so to speak, whose manner of dress is altogether ami. ingbecauseof his deliberate disregard of the accepted idea. He is one who, according ! o his own natural propensities, ambles over fields in pursuit: of butterflies and beetles for zoological specimens, or scribbles impassioned verses by moonlight, or inquires deeply into American history to ascertain whether or not Washington actually swore at the battle of Princeton. To others the college man is the sort of person you would do well to meet on such occasions as the night before the fourth. He is, indeed, a jolly and convivial fellow, carefree, careless, rollicking. He invariably smokes a short curve-stem pipe and wears a silly little felt hat which rests in studied nonchalance on his head. His life consists of yelling meaningless "rah rahs"...
General Chemistry Laboratory Expands [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1920
General Chemistry Laboratory Expands Since the present quarters of the General Chemistry Laboratory are entirely inadequate to accommodate the large number of students who desire to pursue this course, it has been found necessary to equip another laboratory. This addition will be in the room adjoining the present laboratory, and if everything is carried out according to the contracts the new lab will far surpass the old room, if not in size, at least in equipment. There are twenty students who are unable to do any laboratory work in Chemistry at present. Consequently the need is imperative and the work is going ahead as fast as the union will allow.
