South Boston B. C. Club Making History on the Old Peninsula [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
South Boston B. C. Club Making History on the Old Peninsula Up until the chill month of November, 1917, South Boston was little more than "South" of Boston. It nestled on the end of the peninsula, as it does today. The great canopy of heaven spread above it and the sweet, soothing salt beeezes gently brushed their way across it, as they, likewise, do today. It was a perfectly "topping" spot to live in, as it is today. But there was something lacking. True, many distinguished and very intellectual gentry made it their habitat, but somehow, that is all they do —make it their habitat. One day Mr. Bill Carey, one of the dwellers on the peninsula, a very intellectual and, as they say, "peppy" sort of man, became infused with the idea of making his "old home town" something more than a "habitat" for the heretofore somewhat somnolent natives. Mr. Carey was a member of the 1918 Class at Boston College, at the time. He inaugurated a South Boston B. C. Club campaign of propaganda that culmina...
Memorial Tribute Lieut. Chas. Ostridge'17 Friends in Waltham Present Mother with Picture [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
Memorial Tribute Lieut. Chas. Ostridge '17 Friends in Waltham Present Mother with Picture Lieutenant Charles Ostridge, U. S. A., of the class '17, it will be recalled, was killed in a very unfortunate accident while flying off Chatham Island last spring. He had served a year with distinction in the Naval Aviation corps over-seas, and was soon to be discharged when he met his death. In sympathy for his bereaved mother and to show their love and remembrance of Charlie, his friends in Waltham presented Mrs. Ostridge with a handsome painting of her son in uniform. The formal presentation of the picture took place last Monday night at the Ratigan Studios, Waltham. It is thought that this act of remembrance and love by the friends of Charlie Ostridge will awaken Boston College to a most commendable memorial practice that is being followed in many colleges throughout the country. We lost many of our classmates, undergraduates and alumni, who left their Alma Mater to play in a bigger game a...
Juniors Win the Debate Lively Time at Inter-Class Debate [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
Juniors Win the Debate Lively Time at Inter-Class Debate Before the students of both classes, members of the faculty and judges the juniors won a very lively and closely contested debate. Both teams were full of fight and for over an hour and a half verbal attacks, counterattacks, barrages and bombardments were hurled and repulsed in a desperate struggle for victory. The subject was: "Resolved, that the injunction of the government against the striking miners was both wise and just." Mr. Harold Sullivan opened for the juniors. He gave facts, facts, and then more facts relating the history of the injunction. He maintained a very telling and vigorous attack until the gavel silenced his oratorical artillery. Mr. McNamara led off for the affirmative. After several minutes of preliminary skirmishing he warmed up and stormed the junior front line. His appeal was largely to the emotions; his argument, however, carried considerable persuasive force. Mr. Fitzgerald led the second charge or h...

A Central B.C. Club [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
A Central B.C. Club A football team is composed of eleven men. Each individual on that team may have exceptional ability, but it is when the separate units combine and bend their efforts toward the same objective that the maximum result is attained. In order to accomplish results on a large scale, this principle must be applied to the several Boston College clubsThese organizations are admittedly working diligently for the College, but with unification the possibilities are unlimited. It is not a wild flight of the imagination to say that, with the proper co-operation and spirit, funds could be raised to establish a central clubhouse right here in the City of Boston. Here alumni and undergraduates could mingle, the plans and aims of the College be discussed, public opinion formed and when ripe,precfpitate itself into action. The proposition is a big one, but we are confident there are Boston College men big enough to see it through. It is not in the immediate future; its proposal is...
Lunch Room Etiquette [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
Lunch Room Etiquette After three years of long suffering and indignation we rise to protest against the existing evils of the lunch room. Heretofore, we have been mournfully forced to sweep our garments assiduously or dry them in the sun after the noonday mess, but now that we have a voice, we cry out against the individual who insists on sparring in a crowd of food-laden students; we comdemn that indescribable person who madly dashes through the eager lunch seekers, as well, too, his peculiar type of admirer, who accompanies his passage by a generous shower of miscellaneous edibles. We protest! In the name of H. C. L. we protest!

Morgan Ryan, James Rooney, Jimmy Donahue, Eugene Sullivan, Jack Sullivan, Frank McCaffrey, Tom Salmon, Bill Fitzgerald, Harry Fisher and Tom Foynes were delegated as a committee of ten to draw up plans for the Smoker and see them through. Charles Coyle, president of the Junior Class, was unanimously elected chairman of this committee by the entire Junior Class. Subsequently to this first meeting, the committee of ten has assembled and decided that the Smoker will be held at the City Club some time in February. The Juniors claim that they are going "to put over something that is not only big, but new." Speakers, especially the long-winded ones, will not be permitted to 101 l the audience to sleep. Plenty of splendid, live-wire entertainment and "surprises" h...
"As We See It" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
"As We See It" By Bosco In a few weeks we will be reading the old familiar "Fitzie to Urban" in the basket-ball news. In the court game all centers rove. Page Heaphy. Junior A —"O Lucky Strike, where is thy sting;?" Junior B —-"In the third period of an inter-class game." Yes; that last one was pretty poor. B. C. athletes will have another chance to make the blue Purple bloo-er in the relay this winter. Help Coach Ryder do it. Go out for track. If he sprints up the driveway at 9.25 he is a freshman. If he strolls up at 10.15 he is not. You may break, you may shatter the training table if you will, but the lure of the roast-beef will cling round it still. Notice how the "squad" comes back? Those lunch-room machines —"Peanuts—One Cent". Why put "peanuts" in the plural? The divisional presidents of Sophomore, in meeting assembled inaugurated plans for a spirited program calculated to place the class far in the lead of the rest of the college. They claim to have solved the problem of pe...
Ovation to Football Squad Rousing Finale for Great Team [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
Ovation to Football Squad Rousing Finale for Great Team On Friday afternoon last an opportunity was given to the whole student body to vent the feelings and emotions stored up within them since the Holy Cross game and doubly increased by the splendid victory over Georgetown. At a monster mass-meeting a public reception was tendered the victorious squad. Joe Mulligan, president of the Athletic Association, had the chair and summoned the seniors on the squad to say a few words. They expressed their hope and predicted that next season would be as successful as the one just ended. "Pete" Walker, the genial trainer, Luke Urban, and Ted Madden related interesting side-lights on the great games of the season. Graduate Manager Reynolds conveyed the sentiments of Major Cavanaugh in the latter's absence, and expressed the Coach's pleasure at the remarkable results produced. Captain Fitzpatrick thanked the undergraduates and alumni in well chosen words and issued an emphatic appeal for a great...
Record of Point Scorers Captain Fitzpatrick Leads the Team [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
Record of Point Scorers Captain Fitzpatrick Leads the Team In looking over the list of high point-scorers in the colleges this year, as published recently in our leading newspapers, at first it seemed strange that no member of the Boston College team was mentioned. But if you will stop for a moment to consider the situation, you will find the reason and answer simple enough. Just glance over the team's schedule this fall, and you have the answer. It is quite easy to understand that any team that lined up against Harvard, Yale, West Point, Rutgers, Holy Cross and Georgetown successively would not pile up a huge sum-total. The calibre of the opposition was too rugged to allow it. There is no doubt, had our schedule been sprinkled with weak teams, as many a schedule was, we would have had a few men among the high point-scorers. The following is a list of the points scored by the various members of the team: Captain Fitzpatrick 32 Phil Corrigan 24 Tom Scanlon 6 Luke Urban 6 Leo McElaney...
Competition Wanted [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
Competition Wanted During a recent lunch period, the Senior Class through their spokesman, Bill Lyons, issued a sweeping challenge to all other classes. Bill insists that the seniors are superior in every branch of sport from golf to bowling, and claims that competition will prove his statements. A delegation from Sophomore waited immediately upon Mr. Lyons and proposed a clash in football, which was as immediately accepted. It looks as though senior will be crowded to the limit to keep their record clean, judging from the talk on the colleg campus.

A "Regular Boston" for Daniel H. Coakley [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
A "Regular Boston" for Daniel H. Coakley Daniel H. Coakley demonstrated his sportsmanship and interest in Boston College once again, this time in the following letter sent to President Doyle of the Sophomore Class: Dear Jim: I won the enclosed (check for $160) on the game (GecrgetownB. C.) and want it to be used for the boys of the team who did such splendid work. I prefer that you should be the bearer of the message than any one I know. I congratulate you on your good work, and ask you to give my kindest regards to the best team East of the Mississippi. (Signed) Daniel H. Coakley. Mr. Coakley's pep and enthusiasm for a greater Boston College has always been paramount. He needs no word of praise from a Boston College man.
Initial Fete of the "Triumvirs" [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
Initial Fete of the "Triumvirs" One of the gayest parties of the year held forth at the Opera Chateau on Friday, December sth, under the guidance of the "Triumvirate". The evening was a very gratifying success and proved that B. C. men recognize Fitz and "Lukie" and Frank for their invaluable work in all of the activities of the college. The alumni were there in large numbers. We noted the smiling faces of Charlie Fitzgerald, "Sticks" Cahill, Billy Maloney and other "grads" of recent years. Bill Bigley, an old friend of the family, contributed his snappy singing and had to respond to several encores.
Juniors Organize "Boomers and Boosters Club" Novel Idea in Advertising Introduced [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 10 December 1919
Juniors Organize "Boomers and Boosters Club" Novel Idea in Advertising Introduced Maroon and Gold pennants, proclaiming to an inquisitive world the fact that there is such a place as Boston College, were ordered printed during the course of %he December 2d meeting of the Junior Class. These pennants will be made of paper, the words "Boston College" will be printed in gold across a background of maroon. They are to be distributed, gratis, by the members of the Junior Class to every undergraduate, seniors included, to be pasted on travelling bags, book bags and autos. This little plan of advertising, introduced to Boston College by the Boomers and Boosters Club of the Junior Class, is now in vogue at some of the other large Eastern colleges and universities, and is producing remarkable results. The pennants make a neat appearance on the sides of hand bags and suit cases when the student is travelling and serve as remarkable advertisements of his Alma Mater. These pennants will be off ...
