BATTERY C RECEIVES PULL EQUIPMENT Recruits Filling Ranks of B. C. Unit [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
BATTERY C RECEIVES PULL EQUIPMENT Recruits Filling Ranks of B. C. Unit At last Battery C, the Boston College National Guard Unit, has received its long-awaited equipment from Camp Dix. The guns, French "seventy-fives"—the guns that so effectively helped to drive the Huns beyond the Rhine —have now reached the armory on Commonwealth Avenue; the horses, real beauties, were received last week. A few days ago the members of the battery had the pleasure of unloading the fieldkitchen that will do its bit to keep the wolf away from the door of the battery stomach. All in all, everyone is happy now, for we have what we needed to put on our backs, the guns to keep the foe at a respectful distance, and the fire to cook the antistarvation ammunition. Even the ammunition for the guns has arrived (who knows but we may have a war to shoot out of the way of conscientious objectors pretty soon). All we want now is the ammunition for our own private guns, which have the breech opening just under a l...
"THE FRESHMAN" (With apologies to Tennyson) [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
"THE FRESHMAN" (With apologies to Tennyson) I come from schools both prep and high, I form a great impression, And make the Senior question. "Why This infantile ohsession?" For thirteen years I've studied hard, And been a model pupil; With thirteen teachers for my guard, Who for me had no scruple. Til then I came to Senior's woe, .With sayings cute and clever: For institutions come and go. But 1 go on forever. I strut about the campus green. With stride the very proudest. I pack the stands where games are seen, And yell my very loudest. When Sophomores affect to pose As models of discretion, I crab the works—increase their woes, And cause them sad depression. The Junior holds me as his foe, The teacher thinks me clever, For institutions come and go, But Freshmen stay forever.
WANTED: INTERCLASS HOCKEY [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
WANTED: INTERCLASS HOCKEY We've had an interclass football series and an interclass track meet. How about an interclass hockey series? All the facilities are available; there is an extra rink on Alumni Field; we know that there is plenty of good material in the respective classes; all you need is a pair of skates and a stick. There has not been such a series since 1918, but the series that year was a success. Another such series this year should prove to be just as successful. All that is needed is a little co-operation among the classes. Here is the idea! Let the respective class presidents appoint two members from each of the classes, forming a committee of six. They will meet; formulate the rules and regulations to govern such a series; and finally arrange a schedule. Get the Student Athletic Council to have the A. A. donate a cup to the class which wins the series. THE HEIGHTS likes the idea; several of the students stated that the plan sounded feasible to them; the Seniors have...

Sports HOCKEY-TEAM VICTORIOUS OVER TECH ICE-MEN 4-3 Captain Hughes' Dazzling Shot Decides Close Contest [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
Sports HOCKEY-TEAM VICTORIOUS OVER TECH ICE-MEN 4-3 Captain Hughes' Dazzling Shot Decides Close Contest Coach Fred Roche's ice hockey team is stepping right along, and contrary to advance predictions defeated Tech at the Arena last week 4 to 3 in its first public appearance in Boston. Six-man hockey prevailed which is more or less an aid to individual playing. However, the Maroon and Gold clearly demonstrated its superiority in team play over its Cambridge rivals. The engineers got away to a lead in the opening session when H. McNeil whizzed the disk past Eddie O'Brien. Captain Hughes tied up the count a couple of minutes later when be received a pass from Frank Morrissey. Big Frank is playing the best game of his career on the ice, and comments on his playing were very complimentary. Two more Tech scores came in rapid succession in the middle of the period when N. McNeil and Taylor whipped the rubber into the net. However, that was all. as far as the team from Cambridge was concern...
THROUGH THE EAGLE'S EYE [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
THROUGH THE EAGLE'S EYE Introducing Ourselves. Boston College is growing, her athletic teams are growing; THE HEIGHTS is growing; in fact everything connected with the Eagle's Nest is growing. As you have observed, THE HEIGHTS has grown to the extent of eight pages. We are gradually becoming a real newpaper and with this aim we have decided to print a sporting editorial column every week. In this column, we will comment on the various athletic activities connected with Boston College. There will be times when our views on different matters may be wrong, but we hope that these occasions will be few and far between. We hope to please you; if we do not, we will be glad to hear from you. Also, we will appreciate any "tips" which you may be able to give us. Having introduced ourselves, we will proceed. The Football Schedule. Graduate Manager Frank Reynolds tells us that he is having a difficult task in arranging the football schedule for 1921. Six games have already been Holy Cross, Ford...
SHOTS AT THE NET [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
SHOTS AT THE NET Outside of the Marietta game here will be no more home games. Manager Kirov was compelled to en: eel all others as the following did not come up to expectations. What did you do to help the team? Down there the other night there was no stronger rooter for the team than Manager Jack Kirby, and certainly to him goes some of the credit of the victory. In those last feverish minutes Jack kept encouraging each member of the five, and in fact drove them on to victory. The game was a fast one but was cleanly played throughout. That Springfield bunch was one solid, well built crowd, fast on their feet and good handlers of the ball. They certainly showed the results of some splendid coaching. Captain Jerry sat on the side lines and won and lost with his team. It looked as though at any minute he would throw down his stick and rush on to the floor. He was pleased after the finish, however.
Through the Eagle's Eye [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 20 January 1921
Through the Eagle's Eye college. You hear them as well as we do. You know that they are false. We have been trying to find out where they are originating but up to this time have been unable to find out. We ask one where he heard it and he sends us to someone else. The second party sends us to a third and so on until we find ourselves running around in circles. These remarks are injurious to the college and to the students. It seems to us that there is a foreign element trying to undermine the spirit of the students. We cannot believe that they originate in the college but that some "outsiders" are trying to hurt our Alma Mater. A little co-operation among the student body in trying to find out where these remarks have their beginning, will soon put a stop to them. Whenever any "outsider" passes such a remark to you again, make him prove it or "hold his peace forever." Then observe how quickly these wild rumors will stop. Jack and Dinny. What a battle will be fought in the centre of...

GLEE CLUB AND BAND GIVE CONCERT AT QUINCY FOR B. C. EXPANSION FUND On Sunday evening, January 16, in the Music Hull at Quincy ihe Gle-j Club and Band gave a first-class concert under the auspices of the B. C. Club of Quincy. Each number of the program was well received by the large audience and the fame of Boston College is still growing in the home town of one of our star football players, Mr. Foy. The program was what might justly be styled, "Well Balanced," since it included solos, duets, and octettes, classical selections and popular airs; and a few Irish and American Folk Songs. The soloists were Cornelius Cury, Louis Tracey, Walter Mayo. Robert Merrick, Morgan T. Ryan, William Bigley and Walter Downey. Too great praise cannot be given to the B. C. Club of Quincy and to the Knights of Columbus for the kindness which they showed to our song birds and musicians both before and after the concert.
