CRUMBS FROM THE FOOTBALL BANQUET [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
CRUMBS FROM THE FOOTBALL BANQUET Mr. John B. Doyle, '99, of New York, as toastmaster, caught the kickoff and scored right off the bat. The class of '9 9 was right with him and gave a great sendoff. The silver tongued Gotharaite scored with every remark. "That rampant, 100% Boston College football team." "The gridironists of today have proved that training consists in more than a close shave and a haircut." "Roving Jack Heaphy, our cap-tain-elect, who not only drove Tim from the field, but across the ocean." "Pete" Walker was right in his glory, when he stepped up to the plate, and when the chicken was served, O Man! Some of the footballers wielded the smokes neatly, others handled the weed like a rookie caresses a tennis racket. The best slide of the evening— "Far be it from us to brag, but we did more with our 14 points than Mr. Wilson did. We put them over." The City Club has quite a team. The servers and buss boys oloughed through center, and around the ends at will, and they did...
THE POETRY DOCTOR [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
THE POETRY DOCTOR BY ANNE BYE Last week we published an announcement of the appearance of a new department of poetry in the Stylus. We have since been smothered with requests to start a like feature in THE HEIGHTS. Following our policy of always pleasing our subscribers, we have decided to devote a certain amount of space each week to the treatment of incurable poets. Clinic number one will be held today. We take great pleasure : n introducing the first patient: — "SLEEP" (Ode to a Black-jack) 'Twas a dark and stormy evening, And the wind was moaning low. The little cabin on the hill. Was almost banked with snow. The captain paced his cabin floor, He looked out on the deep. The waves were dashing high, my boys, The captain could not sleep. So. putting on his snow shoes. And last summer's old straw hat, And carrying as a baton. A heavy base-ball bat. He started forth to battle. Across the briny sea, Some one threw a sidewalk brick And broke the horse's knee. "We are lost!" a loud voi...

FATHER DONNELLY DEFENDS STUDY OF GREEK Witty Article in "America" Proves Need of Greek [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
FATHER DONNELLY DEFENDS STUDY OF GREEK Witty Article in "America" Proves Need of Greek In a bright and witty article by Father Donnelly, S. J., entitled "Is the Astracism of Greek Practicable?" published March 15th, 1919, in "America" there is clearly revealed the important part played by Greek in our present-day English. In this article Father Donnelly uses practically all words of Greek derivation, with the sole exception of the article, and forcibly drives home the point in a way which would interest the most blase. After a perusal of this well-written pamphlet, the reader sees to what a great extent his own vocabulary depends on the language of Plato and Demosthenes. In this busy age, one of the great faults to be noticed, even in the case of well-educated citiizens, is that they often use words whose definite meaning they do not themselves understand. Furthermore, they are at a great disadvantage when attending lectures by biologists, doctors, and other men of science. The voca...

SHOTS AT THE NET Some have not missed a game this year, and others 0 Well, you know. There was one in particular, who was there the other night. Ask Jerry. "Fiddle" Morley was there with the long shots from far up the floor, and take it from us, "Fiddle" sure has a mean eye for the net.
SENIORS DECLARE WAR ON PHOTOGRAPHERS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
SENIORS DECLARE WAR ON PHOTOGRAPHERS For the past week or so the observant citizen has noticed that four or five of the members of the Senior Class appear each day in hard collars. Students in the lower classes have advnced all sorts of theories o account for this unusual occurence. THE HEIGHTS, working always in the interests of the peepul, has solved the mystery. The Gruesome Gallery which is to appear in the Sub Turri. will contain a relief map of each member of the graduating class. "Relief" is merely \ technical term. From now till the time the Hall of Horrors is completed there will be no relief for the photographers.

LOOK THIS OVER Practice Sheet—Class of Stenography [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
LOOK THIS OVER Practice Sheet—Class of Stenography Today, my friends, we will persue (he topic of the telephone system. Liberty Bell, the owner in collaboration with Sipke DeWire, ha s put in a new exchange to be known as Columbia but this does n't mean that we all must be Talking Machines to use it. Poker rules still applies. It costs a nickel to call. If they would only get our number as guick as they get our goat we would be much more assimilated. They liggle the hook for the punk models —but that won't help us. We can't put them off, they put us off. Take the fur-lined cuff links, Xeal. We thank you.
JUNIORS SEEK FAME AS PHILOSOPHERS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
JUNIORS SEEK FAME AS PHILOSOPHERS One evening last month George J. Reams and Arthur D. McNeil, two of Junior C's leading major logicians, journeyed down to the Boston College High School where they staged a scholastic disputation on Logical Truth, The Simple Apprehension, and Judgment, before Fr. Boehm's philosophy class at the night school of the Young Men's Catholic Association. George Kearns undertook the task of defending the theses and answered the objections, urged by Mr. McNeil and Fr. Boehm, in a truly scholarly fashion. Loud applause greeted the brilliant efforts of the Junior C philosophers at the conclusion of the disputation and the two Juniors departed, leaving behind them the reputation of intel'ectua! giants.

WANTED: SUPPORT [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
WANTED: SUPPORT The fact that the basket-ball manager has been forced to cancel all but one of the home games is not to the credit of the student body. The apathetical attitude of those whose duty it is to support the team is hard to explain. The fact that this team is a winning team ought to be sufucient to attract a real Boston College crowd to the contests. Evidently it isn't. To our mind, carelessness and nothing else is responsible for the present deplorable situation. It requires a little effort to start out after supper and embark on a trolley trip to the Normal School Gym to watch Captain Mahoney's team perform for the small space of forty minutes. It's much easier to do whatever happens to please you and rely on the other fellow to do what you ought to be doing. There is no glory attached to the accomplishment cf easy things. The hockey team is a winning team. At the game with Tech in the Arena there was a handful of Boston College men present. They made an amount of noise ...
CONGRATULATIONS FROM CANADA [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
CONGRATULATIONS FROM CANADA From Winnipeg, Mr. John P. Greene '05 writes to congratulate the football team of 1920. His letter is too personal for publication, but one passage we quote for the inspiration it contains. "My pleasure at work is in a contest with Nature, and at play in games of all sorts. I reached the finals in the open tennis championships for Alberta this year and was only beaten by a hair by the 'champ.' So I am still a boy, whether at work or play.'' There rings the true B. C. spirit, it has helped Mr. Greene to carry through some of the greatest engineering feats in railroad and bridge building performed in the Northwest. Some years ago. for example, he demonstrated the practicability of the concrete arch for larger bridges by successfully completing a bridge with the largest concrete arch ever attempted.

MR. DOYLE REGRETS CANCELLATION OF YALE GAME [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
MR. DOYLE REGRETS CANCELLATION OF YALE GAME We quote part of Mr. Doyle's speech at the football banquet. "Yale football tradition comes of solid achievement. For thirty of the forty years of the American game Yale stood champion. Yale., prowess, Yale spirit, Yale bulldog grit, was and is no idle boast. Whatever might be the odds against the Blue, no team has ever yet entered the lists assured of a victory over Yale. When the chance came a year ago, Boston College seized the opportunity to meet Yale. Unheralded, our team went into the Bowl; and when in the last minutes of play Captain Jimmy Fitzpatrick behind perfect support rose to the climax and planted victory upon our banners, the team and all of us accepted the result not only with jubilation, but with a feeling of something deeper and more satisfying, a feeling that might well be put in the words of Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes on receiving his Doctor's degree from Yale University thirty-rive years ago, when he said, "I accept...
