More War, More Glory Georgetown here for Great Battle at Braves' Field Saturday [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
More War, More Glory Georgetown here for Great Battle at Braves' Field Saturday The Legion Carnival with its machine guns, air-raids and bombing of trenches will seem to have been but a gentle pastime, compared to the fireworks that will be touched off at the Braves' Field, when Capt. Jimmie Fitzpatrick will drive his tank against the invaders from the Capitol of the Nation. Georgetown, one of the most formidable teams in the South, demonstrated its title to this rating by sinking the Navy, an event which ranks as one of the big up-sets of the season. Last Saturday Washington and Lee, the conquerors of Georgia Tech, the Golden Tornado that played the Pitt team to a standstill was overwhelmed by the sturdy cohorts of Blue and Gray, 27 to 6. A number of New England boys, notably Capt. McQuade, Maloney, "Zube" Sullivan, and Ahearn are starring with the Southern eleven. The team boasts an impressive string of victories and is sure to provide the Maroon and Gold with some of the stiffest...
Roxbury B. C. Club Dance Night Before Georgetown Game [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
Roxbury B. C. Club Dance Night Before Georgetown Game On Friday evening preceding the Georgetown game, the Roxbury Boston College Club will open its social season with a dance to all members and their friends. The Club assures its invited guests of a merry time. The "Hop" will serve as an ideal preliminary to the victory over the boys from Gerogetown on the morrow. It is quite likely that many of the Boston contingent from Georgetown will be there and this might be as good a time and place as any in which to quote the odds for the big game. The Alumni of Roxbury want you to come over and get acquainted. It is supporting just such activities as these which will enable the numerous Boston College Clubs to maintain full vigor and life and thus be the forceful factors in the growth of a greater and still greater college here on the heights.
James B. Connolly Lectures Journalism Hears Famous Writer [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
James B. Connolly Lectures Journalism Hears Famous Writer The class in journalism was very fortunate this past week among its scheduled lectures, one by the well-known author of the Cape-Cod stories, on the topic, "The Short Story." During the war Mr. Connolly was employed by Collier's Weekly to chronicle the activities of the navy. He ably acquitted himself and in addition created Hiker Joy. His lecture before the Journalism Class was on the essentials of the Short Story, illustrated by examples from famous writers.
Without the Formality of an Introduction [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
Without the Formality of an Introduction They used to show us a picture, when we were kids in the sandlot schools —a picture of a long black snake that had been sliced into something like thirteen sections. Each one of the sections, if we remember correctly, was wriggling and writhing away all by its onesy. But the poor old black snake wasn't getting any place. Poor old Mr. Snake wasn't making any progress, despite that fact that every atom of his vivisected body was working like fury. Right next to the picture of the butchered snake was a picture of a beautiful, fat, black snake that was slipping along on its sleek belly like a great greased pig at a country fair. But this snake was not cut into sections. And across the top of the picture were these words: "United we stand; divided we fall." Oh, we know that it is an old, old lesson, boys, but "the old, old lessons are best. Times haven't changed much since old Ben Franklin sent the Almanac to press. "United we stand, divided we fa...
''As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
''As We See It" By Bosco Credit where credit is due. Holy Cross showed a fine spirit of co-operation in helping B.C. to annex that cup. Don't rub it in; it penetrates. Jim Doyle is one of those gems that do their blushing at the bottom of the heap. The Athletic Association wishes to announce that no "B" sweaters will be awarded to the "Smoking-room Quarterbacks." The candidates are urged to become discouraged. This is no telegraphical error. Ever notice how the crosscountry runners spend a great deal of their time running by the kitchen door at St. Mary's Hall. I wonder if the cook —? Watch the bunch turn out for cross-country. With Fitzie kicking any place on the sunny side of mid-field is scoring distance for B. C. Another chance for Scanlon to get rid of that spare leg. Georgetown ought to practice one cheer and that is— "Hold 'em." And the band can play the requiem; and don't forget let's all be there to sing the dirge. Georgetown's coming.
Inter-Class Competition [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
Inter-Class Competition Has the spirit of class rivalry become extinct? As yet, nothing has been done to settle the supremacy among the classes for the football championship. Here is a golden opportunity for the Freshmen to show their youth and prove that they really have life and "pep." The Seniors, of course, are the acknowledged "champs" in every line until they refuse to accept a challenge or doing so fail to deliver the goods. The Heights will gladly assist in any sort of healthy inter-class competition by way of conveying challenges, furnishing officials, etc. It will even hold the money or act in any other dignified capacity. Let us see some real red-blooded activity in this line.
HOCKEY [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
HOCKEY The Hockey schedule is not yet ready for publication. Manager Morrissey hopes to have it completed by the time the Thanksgiving holidays are over. In past seasons the team has been very seriously handicapped by lack of a proper place to practise. This will very likely be remedied this year, if the new indoor rink, now in the course of construction in Cambridge, is completed on time. Phil Corrigan and Manager Morrissey promise a very lively season and the prospects for an excellent team are "looking up."
BASKETBALL AND HOCKEY PROSPECTS EXCELLENT COLLEGE PLAY [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
BASKETBALL AND HOCKEY PROSPECTS EXCELLENT COLLEGE PLAY Once again the Thespians will stride the boards. A farcical comedy entitled "Helping Father" will be produced at the Boston College High School Hall, James Street, on the evenings of Dec. 17 and 18. The proceeds will go to the athletic association. The Reverend Moderator's departure from the usual conservative Shaksperian drama is in the spirit of the times. Football victories should not be buried with the last toot of the referee's whistle. There must be some relief for a people oppressed by coal strikes, the H. C. of L., and "conditions". "Helping Father" is an uproarious farce, acted by a good cast and staged under capable mangement which assures its patrons of an enjoyable evening. "Ed Finnegan" '20 and Morgan Ryan, '21, will take the leading roles supported by the following cast: Owen A. Gallagher, '23, Joseph D. Pate, '21, Eugene J. Sullivan, '21, William J. Dempsey, '20, James E. Donahue, '21, Henry E. Foley, '22, Francis...
BASKETBALL [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
BASKETBALL With the end of the football season in sight, basketball looms large on the horizon. We have some of the best material we have ever had. There is no reason why Boston cannot put a championship team on the floor this winter. With Urban, Gately, "Jerry" Mahoney, Fitzpatrick as a nucleus we should be able to build up a team that can travel in the fastest company very creditably. Two years ago, with nothing like the prospects of this season, our team went through the campaign and won three-quarters of its games. The Manager, Walter Kiley, states, his schedule will be ready for publication in the next issue of The Heights.
FINE SPIRIT OF COLLEGE BAND [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
FINE SPIRIT OF COLLEGE BAND The appearance of the College Band at the recent games, clad in maroon sweaters has caused much comment. A gold "B" on the left arm with a white bar underneath it for every year of service gave a very natty touch. White caps and trousers completed the costume. The Band under the leadership of Gary Martin deserves great credit and sincerest congratulations. It plays the team on to victory. No college play, smoker or social is complete without it. The spirit of the band is of the right sort; its work this year has meant much more for the spirit and enthusiasm of all than even its own members and authorities estimate. It should be said, too, that the calibre of its music is of no mean order and to the uninitiated, at least, it compared very favorably with the hired band that led the Holy Cross boys about the Fenway two weeks ago.
Faculty Announcement [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
Faculty Announcement It has been announced by the Dean that Condition examinations will be held on December Ist, 2nd, and 3rd.

It was also announced that Friday, November 28th, will be added to the regular Thanksgiving holidays—the vacation to extend from Wednesday to Monday of the following week.
Junior-Senior Debate [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
Junior-Senior Debate We wish to announce we were in error last week in stating the date for the JuniorSenior debate. The argument has been postponed until December 5. This event is always a feature on the scholastic program for the first term. The entire student body and Faculty are cordially invited to attend.
Medicos and Abagados Attention! [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 26 November 1919
Medicos and Abagados Attention! The seniors in Business English would like to meet the Medicos or the Abagados of the legal section in a football game to a finish. It is their intention to set the pace in the new agitation for inter-class competition by staging an intra-class fight first, the survivors of the various sections to represent the class. Address all communications to Mr. Wellings, Senior English.
