TENDER LAST TRIBUTE TO EDW. J. BRANDON More Than 1,500 at Funeral of Noted Friend of Boston College [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
TENDER LAST TRIBUTE TO EDW. J. BRANDON More Than 1,500 at Funeral of Noted Friend of Boston College More than 1500 relatives, friends and business associates attended the solemn high mass of requiem held in the Blessed Sacrament Church, Cambridge, for Edward J. Brandon, City Clerk of Cambridge, who died suddenly at his home, 170 Magazine street, that city, Sunday afternoon, after an illness of less than three days. He was one of the most popular men in the civic and social life of Cambridge and widely known throughout the State. The attendance at the mass showed the esteem in which Mr. Brandon was held. High officials of the city, State and National governments were present, while the clergy and Boston College, Mr. Brandon's alma mater, were represented. The funeral cortege was escorted to St. Paul's Cemetery by a detail of police under Lieut. Joseph Donahue, followed by the honorary pall-bearers and the pallbearers, and a large delegation of members of Cambridge Council K. of C. La...

SUBMARINE, B. C.-30, SINKS SENATORS IN SLIMY SEA Roderick Gallops 73 Yds.—O'Brien Shines — Kennedy Glitters — Everybody Tumbles [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
SUBMARINE, B. C.-30, SINKS SENATORS IN SLIMY SEA Roderick Gallops 73 Yds. —O'Brien Shines — Kennedy Glitters — Everybody Tumbles Georgetown came to Boston last Saturday fully determined to wipe out the defeat sustained at the hands of Coach Cavanaugh's outfit last year, but went home disappointed. In justice to the Washington college, we can say that they fought hard, in fact they fought too hard, for the piling up in which the players engaged was enough to put Jimmy Fitzpatrick in the hospital again with a dislocated shoulder and to weaken Tommy Swan's arm. Fitzy's return to the game was a tonic for the Boston College team. The boys played the best game since the Yale contest. Georgetown never had a chance. They rarely had the ball in their possession and when they did, they never were able to get inside the Boston College 40-yd. line? To name individual stars would be a task for a greater expert than Walter Camp, for every man on the team was a star. The line displayed its usual h...
SENIOR SMOKER AT CITY CLUB TONIGHT [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
SENIOR SMOKER AT CITY CLUB TONIGHT Wheel We're off! Where? To the Senior Smoker. Last week the Roxbury B. C. Club opened up the fireworks and on the following day the Varsity Eleven displayed their wares before twenty-five thousand, and believe mc, it was some display. On the electric score boards in town, the display read something like this: B. C. 30 — Georgetown 0. But the biggest display of all will be given by the Seniors this evening at the Boston City Club. What is to take place this evening will certainly blow the lid off the big Week End. Harold Sullivan, Chairman of the Smoker has assured us all that nothing but the best will be produced and when he said this, he meant, the best of speakers, the best of talent, the best of smokes and the best of college spirit. Just what will happen we cannot tell, for it must remain a secret until the psychological moment is at hand. Rev. Fr. Rector Coach Cavanaugh and "Dan" Gallagher will be the speakers of the evening. Nuff Sed — with r...
"America" Drive Will Soon Close [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
"America" Drive Will Soon Close The Big America Drive will close in a week or so, and the field representatives are urged to spur their efforts a trifle for a grandstand rush for the finish line so as to be well up in the money. The drive will close officially about the 15th of the month, and as some of the field men have been lagging results have not been as pleasing as was first expected. However, we urge every man enlisted in this enterprise to get going with renewed vigor and put the drive across.

TOMORROW [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
TOMORROW We have heard that tomorrow never comes. This one has been several years in transit but it will be here — tomorrow. There have been dreamers who have dreamed that some day B. C. would have a foot-ball team that would play and defeat the most formidable opponents, that would have the Eastern College Championship within its grasp, that would meet its greatest rival, Holy Cross before a crowd of 35,000 people. In the general excitement, we feel that an antique remark on our part will be overlooked. The dream has come true. Tomorrow the struggle will be hard. Let no act of yours mar the day. The day is too big to permit of a single petty squabble, the slightest manifestation of poor sportsmanship. Any admonition is unnecessary. A reminder is always in order. Holy Cross has our best wishes. May the victory rest at the Eagle's nest and may Boston College teams have years of uninterrupted "tomorrows."
Plans for Winter Carnival to be Discussed [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
Plans for Winter Carnival to be Discussed The Board of Directors of the Philomatheia Club will meet the presidents of all the Boston College Clubs at the college next Tuesday, Dec. 7, to discuss plans for the winter carnival which is to take place at University Heigths on Dec. 28. It is expected that a keen interest in this carnival will be manifested by the different organizations connected with the college and that the united efforts of these clubs together with the Philomatheia will go to make this undertaking a decided success. University Heights has admirable facilities for such a feature and with everyone taking the proper interest, Dec. 28th should be one of the biggest dates of the winter season. The band ran through signals between the halves. They had to. White flannels look nifty all right but they are uncomfortable at times.
BOSTON COLLEGE DROPPED FROM YALE SCHEDULE [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
BOSTON COLLEGE DROPPED FROM YALE SCHEDULE Yale has dropped Boston College from its schedule. We had a feeling that it was coming, but we were not sure, until the following telegram was received by Graduate Manager Frank Reynolds on Wednesday afternoon: Xew Haven, Conn. To F. A. Reynolds: Regret that in arranging a consistently developed schedule, it has been found inadvisable to include game with Boston College. M. D. Goddard, Manager. The Heights does not intend to comment on the fact. The charge that Boston College used illegal tactics in the game has already been answered by outsiders in the best possible fashion and there is no reason why they will not be able to do the same in this case. Therefore we advise you to have nothing to say in the matter. The Boston College football schedule next year will be as strong as it was this year and perhaps stronger. Of course Holy Cross, Georgetown, and Fordham will be on it, while it is very likely that Marietta will come to Boston again n...
A PLATE OF APOLOGY [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
A PLATE OF APOLOGY Pardon us, Sophoz, if we depart just a little from our usual mode of speech and essay a defense of our flowery academic prowess. You challenge us to an academic contest. We accept. It has ever been conceded to the challenged that they name the terms of the contest. Tomorrow ends the football season. What will the adventuous student body at B. C. do for excitement between now and the opening of the basket-ball season? To the feeble Freshman mind, what is Jim Dandier or more thrilling than a Greek spelling contest between Freshmen and Sophomore on a bleak wintery clay? Mind you, men of wisdom, this is not suggested in a spirit of frivolity. We are in dead earnest. The emphasis is on the "dead". Capable men from each Freshman section will vie with capable men from each Sophomore section. The preceding gust of warm air was accompanied by a few slathers of poetry. At the risk of boring some of the intellectual non-combatants, Juniors and Seniors, we print the "poetry"....

CONSTITUTION BOSTON COLLEGE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
CONSTITUTION BOSTON COLLEGE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION Last year it was suggested that a revision of the Constitution of the B. C. Athletic Association was desirable. A committee was entrusted with the work. Mr. Joseph Mulligan, who was then President of the Student Athletic Council, directed and coordinated the efforts of the Revisers, with the result that at the end of the year a new CONSTITUTION was ready. This is the document which is being presented to the Student Body of Boston College for their approval or rejection or emendation. The Student Athletic Council will welcome any suggestions which may have for their purpose a constructive criticism. Embodied in the new Constitution are what were deemed the best elements of the Athletic Constitutions of Harvard, Dartmouth, Yale, Georgetown and several other Colleges. It is therefore hoped that the present document will prove satisfactory, at least in most points, to the Students of Boston College, and that the new Constitution may be sp...
At the Eagle's Nest [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
At the Eagle's Nest No wonder B. C. pried large openings in the Blue and Gray line. They had four jimmies on the team. Jimmies Doyle, Liston, Fitzpatrick, and Kennedy. Big time tomorrow night after the game, at Paul Revere Hall! A good place to celebrate and at the same time help the B. C. Caseys.
BISHOP FROM SWITZERLAND SPENDS A FEW DAYS AT BOSTON COLLEGE To Sell His Art Collection Valued at $2,000,000 [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
BISHOP FROM SWITZERLAND SPENDS A FEW DAYS AT BOSTON COLLEGE To Sell His Art Collection Valued at $2,000,000 During the past week the college was favored to have as a guest the Right Rev. Gregory Schmrid de Grueneck, Bishop of Chur, Switzerland, who is touring the principal cities of this country in an effort to sell the art collection of his Episcopal Palace. With the funds thus raised churches are to be built for the Catholics scattered throughout Switzerland. Among the art treasures which the Bishop brought with him are two small paintings by Giotto, (13th century) valued at $70,000 each. A portrait of Alesandro Medici (1536) by Branzino, $60,000. A Triptycon (folding altar) from the 15th century, by Gerard David, $50,000. One of the paintings by Giotto is so rare that the Metropolitan Museum of New York, the largest Art Gallery in the United States, does not possess a copy. The collection also includes original paintings by Van Eyk, Murillo, Raphael, Abbrecht, Duerrer. The Bishop...
BATTERY C STARTS TRAINING IN EARNEST "Non-Coms." Begin School Next Monday [Newspaper Article] — The Heights — 3 December 1920
BATTERY C STARTS TRAINING IN EARNEST "Non-Coms." Begin School Next Monday At last Battery C has begun to do some training other than mere infantry drill. Last Tuesday the members of the battery learned that the horse has an anatomy as well as the human being, if not more so. The forelock and fetlock are not one and the same, even though a few may still think so. As for mounting a horse, everyone soon understood that the horse's back cannot be pulled down to suit the "fawncy" of the cavalryman. Besides learning that the horse has an anatomy, the men were introduced to the fact that a gun is a bit complicated, to say the least. Caisson, piece, and limber, became more than names in the minds of the aspiring colonels. Speaking of colonels, we might note that all B. C. men have a good chance to become non-commissioned officers. These latter will start to go to school next Monday, preparing for commissions. Boston College men want to see a few more B. C. faces at the drill next Tuesday at...
