NIGHT BEfORE AT THE CITY CLUB Great Enthusiasm at the Senior Smoker The Senior Class broke old precedents and established new ones by holding their annual "smoker" fc the Boston CityClub, on the night preceding the Holy Cross-Boston College football game. Fully two thousand students and Alumni were present and all took vigorous part in the greatest outburst of enthusiasm ever seen in the history of the college. The college band furnished the music and members of the Glee sung suggestions for the morrow's game. Thomas Scanlan, President of the Senior Class, acting as temporary chairman, introduced at the outset Richard L. McShane, President of k Fulton, as permanent chairman for the evening. After some preliminary remarks, the chairman introduced Rev. William Devlin, S. J., President of the College. Fr.

BOSTON COLLEGE WINS ANNUAL CLASSIC! GAME WON IN LAST QUARTER [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 19 November 1919
BOSTON COLLEGE WINS ANNUAL CLASSIC! GAME WON IN LAST QUARTER Before the greatest crowd that ever witnessed a Boston College-Holy Cross gridiron battle, our stout-hearted lads clinched a well-earned victory in the waning moments of the game, at Fenway Park last Saturday when Captain Jim Fitzpatrick placed the ball over the goal line, where the Holy Cross rooters best could view their ruin. The score was 9 to 7, but it is not a true tale of the superiority of the Maroon and Old Gold over the Purple. The "breaks" figured in the scoring, but they counted most heavily in favor of Holy Cross. Boston College was far superior to Holy Cross on the offensive ana) outclassed its opponents on the -defensive as well. The throng which packed the stands at Fenway Park totaled nearly 15,000. It was perhaps, the largest gathering that ever attended a football contest between two Catholic colleges, and demonstrated clearly the splendid following that both colleges have in Massachusetts. Not only did ...
ABOUT OURSELVES [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 19 November 1919
ABOUT OURSELVES Students of Boston College, this is not an editorial of the character we hope henceforth to carry in these columns. It is rather a statement of policy. In this first issue of the new college weekly, to be known as The Heights, it is pardonably proper for the Staff to make a declaration of the nature of this new student venture into the field of journalism. What it is— The Heights is the Boston College weekly. It will be sent to the printer every Monday morning and will be placed on sale every Wednesday. It is not a political organ. It will take no part in political strife—even in college elections. It will print both sides of all stories. It will aim to be fair and just to all. It will be constructive —not destructive. Yet while optimism will prevail in its editorial rooms, and will reflect itself in the tone of sturdy encouragement it hopes to carry to the student body outside, The Heights can never condone abuses in student activities. It can be no respecter of per...

WHAT ARE YOU DOING NOVEMBER 29th? [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 19 November 1919
WHAT ARE YOU DOING NOVEMBER 29th? As the Autumn sun was sinking behind the left field clock down at Fenway Park last Saturday and Carey Martin's buglers sent the last holy note cf TAPS across the chalk-lined gridiron into the "PURPLE" stands, our dear old Maroon and Gold standard bristled in the topmost breezes of the flag-staff while the Purple banner wallowed in the frosty mire below. Before upwards of 15,000 wild-eyed football enthusiasts OUR TEAM had WON. Captain Jim Fitzpatrick and his glorious followers had gone over the top. If you missed that game, you shortened your life by five years. If you did not get into the snake dance that tripped the whirling fantastic down to the shadow of the State House on Boston Common, if you did not join the rush that bore Captain Jim and Teddie Madden and Corrie and Scanlan and all the rest of them on its shoulders over Boston's cobblestone streets, you must either have been chained to a sickbed or "DEAD." If the former, you are excused, but ...

ALUMNI ENTHUSIASM [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 19 November 1919
ALUMNI ENTHUSIASM All Hands Working Hard. The Alumni Bulletin is making a great hit down-town with the Old Boys. The Graduate Athletic Board of which Mr. Francis R. Mullin, '00 is chairman held its monthly meeting at St. Mary's Hall on Tuesday last. That chairman is sure a live wire—and the Board a live coil. Graduate Manager Reynolds, '16 is doing a fine job and the students are back of him to a man. He has sincere congratulations from all sides and the assurance that after this first year of breaking-in, the next ten years will be much easier. College spirit of the finest brand is being shown by the brothers Manning, Ed and Jim, in taking charge of the football application system for the three big games. Boston College thanks them both — and their sisters, too, who help.
"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 19 November 1919
"As We See It" By Bosco Under the leadership of Prof. Fitzie and his ten instructors we're getting that snake dance down pat. Another lesson after the Georgetown game, Jim! Several shift plays were pulled off after the game. Those pretty purple hats were shifted from H. C. heads to B. C. pockets. The Cardinal's Cup has a permanent home now. We need another to make a set. Our idea of —273 Centigrade —"Help Cleo Beat Cav." The Holy Cross cheering section had a close-up view of B. C.'s touch-down. Great foresight on the part of the management. Mr. Heaphy, the well-known exponent of brotherly love, demonstrated his affection by throwing bis arms about Mr. Gagnon's neck. Strange to say, Mr. Gagnon was displeased. Ingratitude, Jack, is a terrible thing. We never thought the term "baseball" in any sense appropriate in its application to the forward pass, until we saw Urban's circus catch of Fitzie's heave. Mayor Fitzgerald sat on the Boston College bench and agreed it was a big day for the...

CLASS OF 1921 In First Function of Year Movies, Smokes, Eats and Everythin' At Junior Smoker [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
CLASS OF 1921 In First Function of Year Movies, Smokes, Eats and Everythin' At Junior Smoker Last Friday evening in the College Hall all sections of the Junior Class came together for the first function of the year. Charlie Coyle was there and Frank Morrissey and "Jazz" and Father Rector and the "Irishman" and Charlie Wellington, the caterer, and Battling Bill, and everybody in Junior Class. And they all had a wonderful time. Walter Cremmen, of Junior B class furnished a five reel thriller, entitled the "Liar" and believe us he was some liar. And "Morrie" tickled the ivories, Gregory sang, he's a good singer too, and little Mac from Providence fell in love with two senoritas, and had to utilize his major logic to decide which was the "gal." Nothing was lacking. The Junior Class certainly has started something. What the Seniors staged in the line of a Smoker was a Henry Ford in comparison with the Junior Social. It was a regular "gettogether." The Juniors had placards pasted all over...
