BOSTON COLLEGE TOPPLES GEORGETOWN Roxbury B. C. Club Roxbury Setting the Pace [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1919
BOSTON COLLEGE TOPPLES GEORGETOWN Roxbury B. C. Club Roxbury Setting the Pace During the next few weeks, a | short history of the several Boston College Clubs scattered over | New England will be sketched j in this column. The first will be the Roxbury Boston College Club. During the Fall of 1916 Henry J. Gillen, '21, stirred up consid- I erable agitation among his fellow Boston Collegians of Roxbury. He declared at that time that a town that boaste 1 of so many brilliantly talented Boston College men a'; did Roxbury should band its noble sons together in t'he interests of their Alma Mater. Henry's propaganda proved very effective and at the first get-together of his fellow townsmen Peter N.' Petrocelli was elected president, Thomas Nolan was chosen vicepresident and Frank Roland was delegated secretary-treas-urer. Since that day in 1916, the Roxbury Boston College Club has been working wonders in its endeavors to boom Boston College. Each year it has staged one or more social event...
"Fitzie" and "Lukie" Shine in Grand Finale [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1919
"Fitzie" and "Lukie" Shine in Grand Finale Just as Jupe Pluvius began to weep his copious tears of gloom Saturday afternoon and the timekeeper prepared to lift the brass-plated final whistle to his lips, Captain Jimmy dropped back to his kicking position in response to the old Maroon and Gold war cry, "Fitzie back," and floated a beautiful field goal over the cross-bar for the three points that gave Boston College the decision over Georgetown by the score of 10 to 7. That glorious kick sent out stands into the proverbial seventh heaven, and poor Georgetown —well, there isn't a proverbial seventh hades. For the third time this season and perhaps the twentieth time in his career, Captain Jimmy's steel nerve and heroic toe weighted the balance with the points that gave victory to Boston College and sent our foes down into the slough of despondency. Yale felt his sting within her massive bowl not long ago, and Holy Cross is still itching from the poisonous prick administered by his Bric...

The Football Season [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1919
The Football Season There is an end to all good things. Our football season is over. Boston College was represented by a real team that played a real schedule. Games with Harvard, Yale, West Point, Rutgers, Holy Cross, and Georgetown do not constitute a rest cure. No team tackled more rugged opponents and several of the big colleges provided themselves with handpicked programs. We do not crow over victories nor "alibi" defeats. Boston College won games by playing better football than her opponents. Some games were lost. That was because Adam ate the apple and men wear out. Up to a few years ago, our gridiron teams never stood on their own legs. They tottered along supported by humble apologies. That is now past history, and its sacrifices and not its brilliant exploits constitute our proud boast. It was the spirit of 1900 and 1910 which made the achievement of '19 possible— to see our team triumph over its greatest rival, to have it mentioned among the very strongest aggregations an...
Roxbury Club Dance [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1919
Roxbury Club Dance Whitney Hall, gayly festooned with banners and streamers of Maroon and Gold, was the scene of a very successful party on the evening of Friday, November 28th, the evening before the Georgetown game. A great number of the "Old Grads" showed their interest in the affair and expressed their enthusiasm over the activity of the undergraduates. One of the features of the evening was the Souvenir program. The authors showed considerable wit and generosity in their distribution of compliments, and especially did the 2.30 student, the Lake Street Car service, and the eccentricities of the club members come in for attention. Among the prominent members who were present we noted, Henry Gillen, '19, the founder of the club; Peter Petrocelli, '17, the first president, and the distinguished Mr. Girroir. The members on the Committee for Arrangements, to whom great credit was given for a very pleasant party, were: Robert Brawley, President; William Bond, Vice-President; and Steph...
"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1919
"As We See It" By Bosco Some sun-set. It was a lean season for blueje seye.l teams. Figure it out. Coach Ryer ought to look over the "2:30 birds". Lots of good material in that bunch. A metropolitan daily, The New York Tribune, recently showed good judgment in the following items: Heaphy (Boston College), H. Robertson (Syracuse) and Callahan (Yale) are mentioned among the best centers of the year and are probably All-. American selections. Fitzpatrick (Boston College), Braden (Yale), Robertson (Dartmouth), Murphy (Yale), Bell (Penn), are among the best drop kickers in the country today. Honors even on the last-stand playing. Mud, mud —where is Heaphy? Madden went through the line like a ghost goes through a door. Read a ghost story and find out how he does it. Speaking of "swan-songs," Georgetown did not enjoy the singing of Jack Lyons and Lonny Ring. Georgetown's wonderful interference made it seem as if they had fifteen men on the team. When you speak of the stars, don't forget th...

On December 5 Mr. Edward J. O'Neil will lecture to the class on the Insurance Business.
Fall Track Season Closed Preparation for Indoor Meet [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1919
Fall Track Season Closed Preparation for Indoor Meet The Fall track season closed with our cross-country team striving for honors with the Worcester Polytechnic's hill and dalers at Worcester. Throughout the season, and in the last contest, though defeated, our track team fought with traditional grit and stamina. We have a well-balanced array of athletes, which is sure to prove its worth before the gong rings for outdoor work again. The indoor season has much in store for our track stars. We still have the sting of three consecutive defeats, administered by Holy Cross at the B. A. A. games. But this season, Boston will put on the boards one of the best relay teams in the East, consisting of men who have had very considerable college experience. With Dempsey, Driscoll, Corrigan and Kelley, all running the dashes in record time, —Driscoll and Dempsey being contenders for collegiate championship honors, —prospects for beating Holy Cross are very bright. Training on the outdoor board tr...

Glee Club Looks Forward to a Successful Season [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1919
Glee Club Looks Forward to a Successful Season The Glee Club under direction of Mr. Parsons, the moderator, started rehearsals last week for a series of mid-winter concerts. All will remember the fine concerts the glee club gave last year at Jordan Hall. Mr. Parsons was quite surprised and pleased to find that the Freshman Class turned out several promising tenors. That this is one of the many activities that have recovered from the war is shown by the large number of applicants. At present there are over fifty men in the club, and a large number on the waiting list. Mr. Charles McGill, of Senior, was elected president, and will lead the club in its coming concerts, which promise to surpass those of last season.
