SENIOR CLASS HOLDS FIRST MEETING Pres. Doyle Promises Big Things From Class of '22 Last Monday, in a meeting whitehot with enthusiasm, the Senior Glass listened spellbound to the eloquence of President "Jim" Doyle. He tried for half an hour to inculcate a militant attitude towards the superiority of the Senior Class. He also announced that Clement 0. Jordan was elected Editor-in-Chief of the Sub Turri, the Senior Year Book. After the cheering had subsided, the philosophers made plans for the Senior Smoker which will occur the night before the Holy Cross football game.

New Boston College Eleven Downs Boston University Opening Game is Featured by Punting of Darling and 60-Yd. Run by Matthews Boston College started the 1921 season in a successful manner by defeating B. U. by the score of 13 to 0. The game, though marred by many fumbles, was hard fought and thrilling. Boston College was easily the better team, but B. U. put up a hard fight. Boston College scored its first touchdown when Darling, catching a punt on B. U.'s 30-yard line, dodged and side-stepped his way for B. C.'s first score. The second touchdown came when Matthews intercepted a forward pass on B. U.'s 40-yard line and ran 60 yards for the second score. Boston College chose to play a kicking game and Darling, the Minneapolis star, clearly outpunted Sweet2am! of 13. V.

BOSTON COLLEGE BEGINS ITS FIFTIETH YEAR Entering Class Is the Largest to Enroll at The Heights [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 October 1921
BOSTON COLLEGE BEGINS ITS FIFTIETH YEAR Entering Class Is the Largest to Enroll at The Heights Many new faces greeted the inspiring towers on the Heights on Sept. 21st, 1921. when the largest number of students ever to enter Boston College enrolled for the collegiate year. The Freshman class was by far the largest that has yet gained admittance to these sacred walls. The former high school heroes, but now lowly Freshmen, number about three hundred and twentyfive future citizens. In all probability this number will not be exceeded since such an enrollment taxes the present limited facilities of the class rooms to the fullest extent. The sophomo.re and junior classes have suffered very little in the way of losing classmates. In fact their numbers have been augmented by several transfers. The senior class under the able leadership of its officers plans for a busy and eventful year. The old classrooms and professoi-s are already exciting tender thoughts in the minds of the seniors as th...

FOR BOSTON [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 October 1921
FOR BOSTON Editorials on college spirit have become so numerous that they are gradually being included under the caption of "old stuff." We were somewhat wary about adding another to the already large list, but as this is the first issue of the college year we feel that the few- words which follow will be acceptable. This is the season of the year when college spirit is born. Often it is born merely to die a feeble death. Sometimes it develops and becomes an asset to college life and ambitions, a splendid interpretation of loyalty and devotion to the school. With it a small college can become a big college if not in numbers at least in name and fame. It is the tie that binds. Out here on the Heights we are exceedingly proud of our college spirit, breathing it as we do from the moment we first set loot within Alma Mater's walls, until that memorable day when, diploma in hand, we depart from her care ■to face the trials and turbulations of the outside world. College spirit is the bond...
AN APPEAL TO THE MEN OF BOSTON COLLEGE [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 October 1921
AN APPEAL TO THE MEN OF BOSTON COLLEGE With the commencement of publication of THE HEIGHTS for 19211922 the management is again confronted with the problem of securing revenue to finance this important activity in the college life. We all know that the chief source of revenue comes from the advertising columns, as in every newspaper. Our task is to fill these few columns each week with the ads of reliable firms and individuals, but firms or individuals will not CONTINUE advertising in THE HEIGHTS from month to month, unless they get RESULTS. Now the case is, they very often get eNcellent results from their B. C. advertising, but they do not know it, because men go into our advertisers' stores and make purchases without mentioning the fact that they are from B. C. or that they saw the article purchased advertised in THE HEIGHTS. Now, fellows, think it over—we cannot run this paper without funds (and we all want to see the paper continue and prosper). The greater part of our funds com...
NEW BUILDING STARTED Erection of New Science Hall Proceeds Rapidly [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 October 1921
NEW BUILDING STARTED Erection of New Science Hall Proceeds Rapidly Construction of the new Science Hal'l, first of the four proposed buildings of Greater Boston College, has been started, and daily sounds of blasting and excavating float through our windows on the autumn breezes, prophesying great things for the Heights a few years hence. The College pool and billiard artists were painfully surprised and shocked upon their return for the fall semester, to discover that the sacred precincts of the pool table had been rudely transformed into a new chemistry laboratory. But Billy Frazier has the table in the diminished smoking room and all is well. The new laboratory will be under the direction of Professor McCullough S. J., head of this department, and will accommodate the chemistry class until the new building is completed.
FOOD FOR FRESHMEN [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 October 1921
FOOD FOR FRESHMEN Hark, ye who cavort about the herbage like the timid hoppergrass, your doom is nigh. Prick up thy (lor.gated aural organs and list. The Freshmen blood test is imminent and let thee be prepared. The more intelligent members of our college are incensed at thy brazeness, for thou hast been too copious in thy childish prattle. Wherefore, ye who would not mourn, organize and be ready to manifest thy courage on the field of battle. The Sophomores are anxious for thy scalps. Verburn sapienti satis est. In other words the wise one doesn't need a debater to convince him.
EDITOR JORDAN SELECTS SUB TURRI STATE [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 October 1921
EDITOR JORDAN SELECTS SUB TURRI STATE The 1922 Sub Turn has started on its way. A tentative Staff has been drawn up and a meeting was held last Friday to discuss plans for the coming year. The publishing of this book is a momentous task and needs the whole-hearted support of every student in the college. Every class and every man in the class can and should do something to help the Senior Class in making this year book a huge success. The students of the tower classes will all be Seniors some day and will have just such a task confronting them as the Senior Class has now. Look ahead fellows and see if you won't be glad to lend your support whenever asked. It won't be often and it won't be much. All the literary lights of the class have been arrayed on the staff and feel confident that this year's Sub Tuni will be juist what it should be, the best erer.
MUSICAL CLUBS ORGANIZE [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 October 1921
MUSICAL CLUBS ORGANIZE In the recent death of Prof. George Lowe!! Tracy, the Musical Club lost its beloved instructor, a widely known composer and writer of music, whose contributions to the musical world were known throughout the United States and Europe in concert and orchestral scores. Mr. Tracy will be remembered by the G-lee Club by his march "For The Heights" and his many compositions that were sung last year in the various concerts. This year Mr. Tobin, S. J., the faculty director, announces that he has obtained the services of Prof. T. Francis Burke as director and instructor for the Musical Clubs. Mr. Burke comes from a musical family, his father being at present a bandmaster, his uncle a noted cornet soloist and bandmaster, and his brother a professional violinist. His two sisters are organists and teachers of music. Mr. Burke graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music in 1908. He returned to the Conservatory and studied composition under G. W. Chadwick and fugue...
FALL TENNIS TOURNAMENT [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 6 October 1921
FALL TENNIS TOURNAMENT On Thursday. Sept. 28 th, THE HEIGHTS started Boston College on the road to prominence in another branch of sport. Too long have the exceptionally good courts at the institution been neglected, and in order that the interest and enthusiasm necessary to success be aroused, the weekly has offered suitable trophies for the tournament. The Horace Partridge Co. has also offered a racket as a prize. The rapidly growing popularity of the game clearly shown by the great attendance at the National Championships, is again reflected in the response of the student body. The number of entrants exceeded the most sanguine expectations. Over forty men signed up in two days. Of course it is not expected that there will be a great deal of class or speed in the matches. This has not been sought after, rather we have been looking- for quantity than quality. By the time the second round is reached, however, the tennis oaight to be well worth watching. The tournament would not have...

EVENING CLASSES OPEN AT HIGH SCHOOL The evening classes at the Boston College High School were resumed last Monday. A record attendance greeted the professors at their first clas-es.

J., our esteemed Junior professor, is to have charge of the philosophy class at the evening school again this year, insuring the certain success of that branch of study.
