Area Tests [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

Area Tests On Tuesday, April 28th, the sophomores took the Area Tests to determine their rating in comparison with other students throughout the U.S. In past years the College has usually rated in the 50 percentiles. However, since this is the first sophomore class that has completed the SWC course, Mother Quinlan anticipates an improved rating. These Area Tests consist of three parts: social science, humanities and natural science. Because SWC has concentrated on the social sciences and humanities more than on the natural sciences, higher scores are expected in these fields. The results will count as five weekly SWC tests for the sophomores. 3rd Bow: Miss Jlajorie Bell, P. O'Conor, G. Eben, M. Whelan, M. Corbett, T. Cooney, Joanna Bertsch; 2nd Row: R. Goeckner, S. Schulte, C. Carey, Judy Bertsch, E. Markey, C. Dougherty; Ist Row: J, O'Connor, C. Hafey, J. Gegan, M. Egan.

Dr. Nemethy Talks On Marxist Theory [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

Dr. Nemethy Talks On Marxist Theory On April 29th at 8:30 P.M., Dr. Anthony Nemethy delivered a lecture on Karl Marx to the alumnae of the Academy of the Assumption in Wellesley.

Betsy DeLone, '60, an economics major and a member of the board of alumnae of the Academy of the Assumption, suggested that Dr. Nemethy give the first in a series of lectures being planned by the board. These lectures will be open to anyone interested.

Around Town [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1959

Around Town Spring is here. . . . The Harvard and MIT crews are working out, girls. On a sunny day, why not take your books and study (!) on the banks of the Charles? If you're mote ambitious, join the Community Boating Club. As a member, you may use its boats and sail instead of studying. With spring comes an itchy-twitchy feelin' ... a strange wanderlust ... an urge to drive along the coast, stopping perhaps at Hawthorne's House of Seven Gables in Salem. Then you turn west and visit Lexington and Concord. Your jaunt might find you eating at the Wayside Inn in South Sudbury (scene of Longfellow's Tales of a Wayside Inn, remember?). Nearby you'll find an old country store and a gristmill in daily operation. For those who are car-less, an MTA ride and a short walk will take you to see the blooms in the Boston Gardens and those near the Gardiner Museum. Maybe you would prefer a walk on Beacon Hill—imbuing yourself with the atmosphere of old Boston. Music lovers must hasten to hear the...

Mother General Awarded French Cross of Honor [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1959

Mother General Awarded French Cross of Honor Very Reverend Mother Sabine deValon, Superior General of the Society of the Sacred Heart received the Cross of the French Legion of Honor on June 24th. General Charles deGaulle's visit to Rome was the occasion taken by the French Ambassador to acknowledge "her splendid service to the Church and to the Sacred Heart." In making the award the ambassador said that he realized that religious attach no importance to earthly honors, and that the whole life of Reverend Mother de Valon was devoted to work for God. The decoration which he bestowed, he said, was not to give her pleasure but to please those who have seen her work, who know her, and who are her collaborators. Reverend Mother de Valon replied: "I am sincerely aware of the fact that this honor corresponds to no merit on my part. I look in vain in my life for anything that could single me out for this honor, and I see nothing except, perhaps the humble accomplishment of daily duty. This ...

Record Freshman Class Elects 12 on Council [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1959

Record Freshman Class Elects 12 on Council Since Newton was founded in 194G, students have been coming from farther and farther away. Today, the campus is only thirteen years old; yet among the freshman class Massachusetts residents fail to lead class registration. In the class of 1963, students come from nineteen states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Manitoba, and Cuba and Venezuela. They have brought the enrollment at Newton to 524, lar- gest since the college was founded. In the United States, the girls come from as far South at Little Rock, Arkansas, and Ormond Beach, Florida, as far North as Green Bay, Wisconsin, and as farWest as Los Angeles and Tacoma, Washington. In the freshman class, the thir-ty-eight students from twenty-four Massachusetts communities represent 20% of the enrollment. However, they stand second to the fifty-one New York State residents, who make up 29% of the class. New England, too, has lost its traditional po...

New Registrar Will Organize Placement Bureau [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1959

New Registrar Will Organize Placement Bureau Miss Joan Norton, a graduate of Barnard, is our new Registrar. Her main duty is to keep the records of the college, but she is also on hand to help anyone with a schedule problem. An active placement bureau under her direction is planned. Any notices concerning job opportunities or fellowships will be posted on the bulletin board in the general office. A questionaire was drawn up, answers to which will be kept on file permanently in order to acquaint employers with applicants' capabilities and experience. Miss Norton would like anyone interested in teaching to inform her so that she can write to the board of education in her state to find out the local requirements.

Bigger Board More Phones Better Service [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1959

Bigger Board More Phones Better Service Newton's switchboard has been improved. We now have more telephones, more inter-house calls and more chance of getting our messages. When asked how the new system compared with the old, Marge Carroll, one of the operators, exclaimed: "It's twenty million times better!" One of the improvements is inter-house dialing. Before this year the call had to go through the switchboard. This caused complications, especially at busy hours, and besides such calls couldn't be made after 7 p.m. With the new dialing system, all we do is dial the code number of the floor we want. We no longer harass the switchboard. We are connected much faster and we can make calls after 7 p.m. Best of all, the switchboard isn't kept busy by inter-house calls and so more outside calls get through. Another improvement is an additional telephone on each floor of the houses. Now we have twice the chance of getting our calls! Extended time for calls is another step in Newton's te...

Sodality Divides Into Cell Units [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1959

Sodality Divides Into Cell Units In accord with a new Sodality movement outlined by the Boston Convention of the Lay Apostolate in August, the Children of Mary Sodality has been divided into small groups this year. "We hope these unit meetings will encourage more member interaction," says E. de M. head Darryln Powers, 'GO. The plan as adopted by Newton involves small cell meetings with a moderator for both aspirants and those who have the E. de M. Medal. 135 aspirants have been divided into units of ten and fifteen apiece according to class; two groups of seniors, three of juniors, four of sophomores, one of freshmen. Upperclassmen and lower classmen who have medals meet separately. Moderators are Mothers Husson, Quinlan, Wheeler, White and Gorman. Sessions are held in house lounges. "This is good psychology," says Darryln. "Pacing one another in a conversational group rather than staring at someone's back in a classroom fosters individual participation. Members feel more responsibl...

In Memoriam [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1959

In Memoriam Newton College is in a sense a preparatory school. It is here that we come to grow in wisdom and prepare to take a part in the world's work. We assume that we will live to grow old, yet none of us really knows how much time God has planned for us. In September, 1956, Jane O'Connor entered Newton as a freshman. By this September, only three years later, God's plan for her had brought her already into eternity. Jane is an example to all of us simply because she was one of us. She not only participated in the club activities and social affairs of the school, she was always there when needed. Every task demanded of her she did well, and all the little jobs which most of us tend to put off, Jane quietly and efficiently accomplished. These things rarely blaze a trail of glory, but they are worth more just because they go unrecognized by everyone — everyone, that is except God. The talents God had given Jane she used well and to their utmost possibilities. We look into her life...

Patience, Please! [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1959

Patience, Please! College life is designed for the individual, concentrated on developing the person. There is nothing so captivating to even the best of men as the constant attention which is bestowed on us during our four years of student life. While we are preparing for duties we must assume after college, petty details of day to day existence are taken care of for us, so that we can concentrate on the important work of developing ourselves. Sometimes we forget the primary purpose of the comfortable and sheltered existence we lead, and shirk the small effort we are asked to make to keep life running smoothly. This semester, the college has expanded to almost its full capacity, and cooperation is no longer a luxury, but a necessity, if the college is to operate effectively. Many problems must still be ironed out; for instance, the length of the lines at lunch, the use of dinner cards on weekends, the small post office, the crowds in the snackbar, and the jammed smoker in Stuart. T...

A Thought for a Thesis [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1959

A Thought for a Thesis Many esoteric phrases are heard echoing through Newton's corridors this year—psychosomatic diseases, colloidal suspensions, and allegorical interpretations, to name a few. Yet no one phrase has the frightening implications contained in two short words, senior thesis. Though this term means little to underclassmen, as they advance in wisdom and maturity they begin to comprehend the subtle innuendoes of this much talked of project. Would all those who have an inkling of what it entails please give the seniors a chance? Those of you who do not, give them the benefit of the doubt. Study hours from seven to nine mean study hours. Please control the volume of your phonograph. It is difficult enough to concentrate on "A Critical Analysis. . . " without Belafonte and bongos resounding through the halls; and if you must move the furniture in your room, couldn't you do it before 10 p.m.? When you, too, reach senior year, you will appreciate these courtesies.
