INSIDE FOOTBALL Facts You Should Know [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 October 1921
INSIDE FOOTBALL Facts You Should Know By Phelix Phrappe The game football is played on a I field free from broken bottles and i i disreputable cans, but usually stained with blood. There should be only 11 men on each side although the umpire, referee, linesman, etc., usually play for one of the teams. At each end of the grid-iron, so called because it looks more like a jail-house window, is a wooden structure called the goal or "gool" if you are a Freshman. The game starts when the referee gets tired of talking and blows a whistle instead. One team kicks the ball which is shaped like an alligator egg and is tilled with atmosphere. The opposing team tries to catch the ball before the ambulance arrives. When a player catches the oval he runs with it in some direction; usually sideways. The opposing players, thinking he is going to steal the ball, trip him up and thus stop his flight. When the player is tackled or "smeared," as they say in East Boston, he is given a few ninutes to call...

FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF TENNIS [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 October 1921
FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF TENNIS By Steamboat Swimming may be a nice form of employment but you can take it from me, that it has got nothing' on the little bird that they are now designating as tennis. While passing the time the other afternoon by refusing the many cigarettes that were being offered me, I was dared to go over to the right hand side of the big clock and watch the much talked of tennis tournament. Now my beloved brethren, I had never s«en one of these battles before, so the result was that. I have been on a diet ever since. The first sight that struck my eyes was a sad-eyed Freshman pretending he was a musician by softly strumming the strings of his racket, (So-called, hecause by itself it doesn't make any.) There were two mermen,—one on each side of the net. Both of these roaring sea-lions were garbed in ice-cream trousers and middy-blouses. One of these sweet things began to sing a little song entitled 'READY." Then the cute thing on the other side of the bars began to j...
OVER THE COLLEGE BOY'S HEAD Jacy Bee, in New York Sun [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 October 1921
OVER THE COLLEGE BOY'S HEAD Jacy Bee, in New York Sun O, I've witnessed the ruins of Egypt And the scraps of a pulverized Rome, And the delaceration of the cruel vitiation Of cities abroad and at home; I've gazed on extinguished Pompeii And the stubble that once was called Troy, But no ruin, by heck, can equal the wreck Of the hat of a gay college boy. For a lid to be truly collegiate Must have wrinkles and grooves and and a tear, And unless it is creasy and sloppy and greasy It's not at all decent to wear. The havocs of fire I've regarded! The ravages wrought by the war, The mire and the mud in the wake of a flood, And a thoisand catastrophies more. livery eyesore on earth I've discovered. Distortions that mar and alloy, But they never can dare to hope to compare Win the fez of a gay college boy. O. Youth, if you call my line hokum. And underrate what I have said Regarding your hat. then will I know that It's certainly over your head.
Sports "HOO'S HOO" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 13 October 1921
Sports "HOO'S HOO" We all knew that somewhere in the Towers the traditional Boston College eagle has always made his abode but the present order of things that are taking place up above leads us to two very disagreeable conclusions. We must either conclude that our eagle had laid an owls egg or else the night bird has driven him from his hereditary roost. "So Tell Us Merry Birds" how did that owl ever locate in the Towers? Last Thursday noontime, a number of Freshmen espied the owl fast asleep on the candelabrum suspended from the dome of the rotunda. How he got there is over the heads of most of us. LARCEN, NY.. Oct. 14 —A Boston travelling man, stopping here at the Ritz, says that if any body wants a lawyer there now, the only way is to go down and see the Chief of Police. They are going to issue prescriptions obtainable at the "Jug" for —Better-than-one-percent Lawyers. By Bacchus.

WORLD SERIES SCOOP THE HEIGHTS added one more scoop to its already Long list (apologies to the Boston Telegram) when the news of the World's Series was flashed to the B. C.
