Thought And After – Thought [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

Thought And After - Thought After attending a recent SWC lecture on psychoanalysis, we were anxious to test the Association of Ideas theory. Recruiting volunteers easily, we suggested different topics to them. The "patients" then revealed what thought came to their minds. There was great variety in the reactions to all the subjects except one — the word "examination" evoked a common cry of dismay. Without probing too deeply, we think we understand the reason for some of the anxiety, and should like to offer a few suggestions to alleviate the condition of the worriers. First, Reading Week is meant to be a Reading Week. If this time is properly spent, though, perhaps, at the expense of a suntan there will be little reason for the all-night cram sessions which leave people exhausted, and on edge. Second, consideration for others is more than a kindness during examination period. It is an absolute necessity. Quiet in the study rooms and smokers and respect for the quiet hours in the dor...

Swiftness And Certainty [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

Swiftness And Certainty In the springtime, a young man's fancy may turn to love, but if his love is at Newton, he will have to compete with the voting situation which comes into full swing after Easter vacation. Perhaps one good result of the rather heated session of voting for social committee chairman is the student's increased interest in the procedure. Though the display of emotions at this assembly ran pretty high, the prospect of two or three grinding hours did not sway the vote. The two campaign speeches, excellently delivered, gave the voters an idea of what is in store for the future. Ut course, aclions speak iuuder than words, and much is expected from the new chairman. It is evident that the student body, having taken such an enormous interest in the election, will be behind Lennie Coniglio and give her active support. A growing school is waiting for this all-important committee, and it is generally felt that Lennie Coniglio, as chairman of Social Committee, and Ursula Ke...

The Other Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

The Other Side I am grateful to the editors of 885 for again offering me space in their pages, and I shall take the opportunity to share with you, the students, some of my reflections on the kind of education we are trying to give here. Since it would seem desirable that there should be some similarity between what I think you are doing and what you think you are doing, perhaps we can all profit by the courtesy of the editors. One way of looking at the matter is to say that I, speaking for the whole Faculty, am the retailer and you are the customer. On this theory of education, you choose what you will learn; the customer is always right. But Newton College does not consider itself a supermarket, the Faculty do not cast themselves in the role of hidden persuaders, and you have probably noted that you are not always right. Another way to look at the relationship would be to say that you earn your degree so that it will testify to your competence in a certain line when you are job-hun...

Freshman Talents Vitalize Athletics, Initiate "Play Days" [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

Freshman Talents Vitalize Athletics, Initiate "Play Days" With an almost undefeated Basketball season behind it, the Newton Athletic Association has an excellent team to plan with for next year. The freshmen were especially responsible for the wining games, since they outnumber the other three classes on the team. They captured the hockey trophy from the senior class earlier in the year, giving Miss Bell hope that this fresh talent can be shaped into a standard well trained team. The Association has inaugurated "Play Days" into its spring program, to increase the campus interest in sports. Newtonites will be sent to oilier girls' colleges to compete in softball, archery, and tennis matches. The Association is also sponsoring a bridge tournament on Sunday, May 10th. The fee will be twenty-five cents and the first four winners will share the proceeds. The college Shield and Designing contest, also held by the A.A., was won by Mary Jo McAvinn, '59. Mary Jo received a free blazer as a p...

Noteworthy Newtones View Career [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

Noteworthy Newtones View Career "You might say it all started in the showers," quipped Ellie Maher when asked to trace the origin of the Newtones. It seems Duchesne West third floor had a surplus of freshman snower singers iciSl year, aiio. wlien Alo Coleman heard about a group called the Newtones which had flourished and faded several years earlier, she brought the news up to the third floor. Logical conclusion: why not form another group? So Alo and Ellie and Mary Stehling, or Patty, Maxine and LaVerne, as they fondly referred to themselves, set about rounding up recruits: Susie Harding, Nancy Larkin, Gail McMillan, Ellen Mahony, Micky McQueeny, Joan Merrick, Pat O'Conor, Sue O'Leary and Bea Queally made up the original twelve. Twelve was the number suggested by Mother Guerrieri, whose advice the group has found invaluable. An even dozen makes it easier to divide into three of four parts, and allows for one or two absentees. At an all-school get-together giv- en by the Student Cou...

New Hartley House, Two Tennis Courts To Brighten Scene [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

New Hartley House, Two Tennis Courts To Brighten Scene Plans for Newton's expansion program are moving forward. The cement for the new tennis courts situated down by the quonset will be poured soon. As soon as elections have been completed, students will choose dormitories and rooms for next year. Hardey is being erected ahead of schedule, and alumnae of the old Hardey will recognize the lantern which will be re-hung in the new dormitory. Rooms will include singles, doubles and quadruples. There will be acoustic tile in the ceilings to deaden sound. There will be changes in the telephone facilities next year, which will include a new and larger switchboard for in-coming calls, and — to facilitate matters — a direct dial system for inter-house campus calls. These additions may compensate for Barat's being completely closed to lay students as a dormitory. The first floor and reference room will, however, remain open. For the immediate future, plans are being made for the construction ...

Calypso Holiday-Newton Wings South [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

Calypso Holiday-Newton Wings South Idlewild airport resembled a Newton smoker as thirty chattering girls from school prepared to board a Pan Am flight to Bermuda on March 28th, for college week. After the usual flurry of good-byes and of last minute arrivals dashing for the gate, the giant cruiser took off smoothly to land three hours later on the tiny British island. Most of us had never seen Bermuda and the royal treatment we received from the islanders came as a surprise. At the Elbow Beach Surf Club, where we had reservations, the management turned the hotel over to the hundreds of boys and girls who poured in from colleges all over the States. Everything was for our enjoyment from a hotel-sponsored boatride to a special college day at Elbow Beach. College Week in Bermuda began as an inducement to future honeymooners. The idea was to roll out the carpet for college students in the hope that eventually they would return for wedding or vacation trips. It has grown into a major pro...

'57 Student Government Head Publicizes Publisher's Life [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

'57 Student Government Head Publicizes Publisher's Life by Patricia Hinchey If you already have plans as to how you're going to dispose of your first million, don't go into the publishing business. But if your financial aspirations are more modest and you like books, join us! The phone rang one morning and much to our surprise, we answered to accept Sir Cedric Hardwicke's thanks for a book we'd sent him. And it would amaze you to see the happy dither into which we were thrown by a very enthusiastic (and quotable!) "Thank you" from Yehudi Menuhin for a book about the musician Bartok. But one of the most exciting experiences that I have ha:l was to receive a message from Father Daniel Linehan, S.J. (saismological expert) at the South Pole. We had flown a book on the polar explorer Shackleton to him before publication, hoping he might give us a quote. We got it! A ham radio operator in Syracuse, New York, was in direct contact with Father Linehan at the Pole. He received the message fr...

Spanish Dances, French Film: A Campus Language Festival On April 21st, in the Newton Playhouse, the Romance Language Clubs presented their annual festival of authentic Spanish songs and dances, and a French motion picture.

Fr. Bassett Advises E.deM.'s to Glance At Soviet Tactics [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

Fr. Bassett Advises E.deM.'s to Glance At Soviet Tactics On April 15th, Father Bernard Bassett S.J., the Director of Sodalities in England, addressed the Aspirants and Children of Mary of Newton College. Father Bassett, a Londoner, began his talk by remarking that although he thought Boston coeds a good deal "smarter" than their British counterparts, he found the American college man on the average "dowdier" than the British male student. Father Bassett emphasized the need for sodalities to organize into more compact units and suggested five as the ideal number for membership in a sodality unit. He told the Newton Sodalists that such a plan was now working effectively in England, and cited outstandingly successful groups. After describing the organizational and propaganda techniques of the Communists, Father Bassett urged that Sodalities organize along much the same lines. In order to be more effective, he said, Sodalists must abandon a complacent attitude toward their religion and ...

WHITING DEVICE ELIMINATES CHALK [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

WHITING DEVICE ELIMINATES CHALK A new contribution has been enrolled in SWC. Master Vu-Graph is a special type of transparency projector of many talents made by the Charles Bessemer Company. Not only does it project slides of all types, but it replaces the old fashioned blackboard. By using a special pencil and a roll of cellophane, the professor can illustrate charts, diagrams, biology drawings, mathematical problems, or the outline of a lecture and il projects immediately on the screen. The Vu-Grapli is less confining for the teacher and clearer for the student than its predecessor the blackboard; and it permits the lecturer to return to a past reference merely by turning a handle. Miss Anne McNamara, first Newton professor to use the Vu-Graph, lectures to a SYVC class.
