New Program Will Improve Reading Skills [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1959

New Program Will Improve Reading Skills Blackboards and electronic machines have invaded liie reserved confines of Barat's Reference Room and its "checkerboard room." Classes for Newton's newly initiated Developmental Reading course are held in these rooms. They are conducted by Mr. Francis Averill, who attended Lasalle College and Notre Dame University; and Mrs. Lawrence A. Guinn, a graduate of the University of Arkansas. Both represent the Reading Laboratory Incorporated of Philadelphia. The purpose of this course is to improve: reading speed, comprehension, and critical reading ability (analysis and evaluation of material). The course is, therefore, designed for all students who wish to improve these skills. Studies have shown that the average reader reads up to twenty per cent of his capacity. By the end of this course students taking it will at least double their speed, and some will triple it. Reading comprehension should also improve from ten to sixty per cent at the end of t...

College Glee Club Has Full Schedule For Coming Year [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1959

College Glee Club Has Full Schedule For Coming Year Mr. C. Alexander Peloquin, director of the Glee Club, will be assisted this year by a new moderator, Mother Cohalan, the former director of the Pius X School of music. The club is fortunate this year to be able to have two rehearsals a week, which enables them to sing a wider variety of selections with greater perfection. The club has had considerable increase in membership, numbering ninety as opposed to last year's seventy members. They will sing five scheduled concerts, including joint concerts with Providence College, Holy Cross College and Fordham University, as well as the annual concert with Boston College. Besides music the club has an annual project, an ad booklet. Without generous financial support, they could not present so many concerts. Patrons are solicited from among the parents of the members, and each girl must solicit ads and boosters to meet the nearly two-thousand-dollar goal. The Glee Club gave its first concer...

Chemistry Lab Re-Located, Re-Modeled [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1959

Chemistry Lab Re-Located, Re-Modeled Through some miraculous feat of engineering, last summer St. Mary's, the old chemistry laboratory, was picked up and moved some twenty-five yards from its original site to where it now faces Centre Street instead of Stuart. Monday, November 2nd, the lab was again in operating order and opened for classes. Chemistry students recognized the building from the outside but marvelled at its new interior. In the main lab, a wall of windows illuminates the once poorly lighted area, and throughout the building vinyl tile floors replace cement. There is a new, well-equipped lecture room, and adjacent to the main lab, there is another smaller lab which last year's chemistry students recall as a garage and storeroom. In the classroom adjoining the main lab, a wall takes the place of last year's garage door. Among the new equipment, the lab sports two new hoods and centrifuges. Heating, ventilation and acoustics, once pressing problems, are now past worries h...

We Gather Together [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1959

We Gather Together On November 26th we celebrate Thanksgiving Day; but what is Thanksgiving Day to us? To some it means an extra-special dinner and a football game; to others it means a few days off from school and a chance to see friends. It is disillusioning to realize how little Thanksgiving signifies to most of us. Although a few moments are given to thanking God for His blessings, these moments are soon overshadowed by other interests. Mai be this year we should spend a little more time considering what Thanksgiving really is, why this day was first established, and why it has become one of our major annual holidays. We all know that the first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated by the Pilgrims to show their gratitude to God for their harvest. They had a difficult time, but they were grateful for what they had. Through the 338 years since this first Thanksgiving, people have been aware of the necessity of setting one day a year aside to show gratitude, although for many years no ce...

A Pathway for Everyone [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1959

A Pathway for Everyone Dr. Charles W. Mayo describes Dr. Thomas Dooley's career as "a truly remarkable manifestation of a free man helping other free men on a person-to-person basis." Dooley's career is this and more; it is a challenge "to transform the brotherhood of man from an ideal into a reality." It is a challenge not to a select few but to all; not to you because you are a Catholic or a Christian or an American, but because you are a human being. We are not all expected to join Medico or go i:o the missions; few of us are qualified. But there have been some at Newton who have been qualified for such work and have done it. Each year Newton is offered openings for missionary work in Jamaica. This year Martha Dwyer, '58, is working there. The dedication of a year of life to others demands love and self-sacrifice; the reward is the special happiness of giving. Dr. Dooley describes it as "the happiness which comes to people who have found the path out of themselves and into involv...

The Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1959

The Lighter Side It was the night of the all-Har-vard mixer and Cinderella Barbella sat alone in her triple on Duchesne West third, idly counting: the cinderblocks in her wall. Her wicked roommates, Topsy Drawer and Victrolia Blair had long since been wafted off to the dance in a cloud of Cindy's Arpege. She had bottoned them into their basic blacks, helped them with their charm bracelet clasps, and polished their nails two coats. She left her room for the smoker, which it was her turn to clean. She was moving about, emptying ashtrays, when all at once the room went black. "Who's turning out the lights?" she shouted, and they immediately flicked on again. Cindy heard a soft voice say: "I'm awfully sorry, dear, but I didn't expect anyone down here this evening." It was Mother Fairygood. "Why aren't you at the mixer?" she asked, and Cindy, in a burst of emotion, told her the whole, horrible truth: smoker duty, nothing to wear, no transportation. "You can finish the ashtrays in the mor...

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

The Other Side One should not study for grades, but there is no harm in studying one's grades. They are probably an index of the quality of one's thought. To help you assess your position, I shall share with you my private interpretation of our grading system—an interpretation to which I think many of the Faculty members would subscribe. It runs something like this: All alive with thought—an original work Bearing witness to thought-—a job well done Correct in essentials but dull—no personal contribution Dithering and doddering—an uncertain attack on an uncertain objective Futile—no grasp of ideas and no real attempt vo come to grips with the question If you think that your grades are not as high as they should be, you ought to consider this three-step formula: (1) read; (2) think; (3) write. If you cannot read and write with ease and skill, instruction is available. Thinking is another matter. As they say in the commercials, YOU, TOO, can think! But whether you do or not is a matter...

Hardey House: Same Old Site, Modern Decor [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1959

Hardey House: Same Old Site, Modern Decor Hardey is the newest addition to Newton's campus. Replacing the old Hardey which was taken down last winter, the new dormitory is evidence of the college's rapid growth. Connected to Cushing' by a glass corridor, Hardey has transformed the appearance of the two buildings. A new parking lot behind Hardey provides more space for visitors. Planned in an L shape, Hardey has three floors and a basement. Although only ninety-nine girls live in the dormitory at present, about one hundred and fifty can be accommodated in the future. One attractive feature of the new Hardey is its two modern and spacious lounges. Decorated by Mr. David Stockman, a representative of the L.S. Peabody Company, these rooms reflect the latest in contemporary design. Furnished in tones of blue, green and fuschia, the large lounge has two walls of floor-length windows.

East Meets West at Newton Indian Girls Live on Campus [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1959

East Meets West at Newton Indian Girls Live on Campus On September 13th, Chandra Bhatia and Bharti Trivedi arrived in the United States to begin work on their Master's degrees in English Literature. Both are staying at Newton while taking graduate courses at Boston College. They were graduated from St. Xavier's College in Ahmedabad City, Bombay State, and will return there to teach. They were most impressed by the spirit among the Newton girls. Chandra said that they had expected to be homesick, but the girls' friendliness and helpfulness prevented them from feeling at all lonely. Chandra, who had been educated in a convert school, knew what to expect but Bharti had never had any contact with nuns before. She said; "They are like your own mother. They make you feel you belong to them". Both are happy that the college show so much interest in them and they are eager to talk about their customs and their country. The tikka marks they wear, they explained, are a type of luck token. Cus...

Miss David: Actress and Director [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1959

Miss David: Actress and Director Joan David, who was graduated from Newton in 1957 and is now our director of dramatics, began this interview by saying that she was "just awful" at interviews: "I just 'umm' and 'mmm'," she said, but her vivacity belies her protests. Since childhood Miss David has been in contact with the arts. She took dancing and disliked it, but the piano she loved: "There was only a little room, the piano and me." She brought this love of music to Newton, joining the Glee Club in freshman year. But the next year saw her cast as Portia. "It was just awful," she remembers. The first time she felt she had really portrayed a character was in sophomore year, when she was cast as a little old man. This appealed to her because "I could create a character and not worry about mvself." The next year her part as Pride in The House by the Stable wasn't as satisfying because she felt "too much like myself." Miss David was still a victim of stage shyness; in senior year she vo...

Freshman Play For All Those Young At Heart [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1959

Freshman Play For All Those Young At Heart Do you remember when clowns were really clowns, when dolls could talk, and every fairy tale was true? If you can't remember and couldn't care less, The Clown Who Ran Away is not for you! The freshman fantasy presented under the auspices of the Dramatic Club is for those who remember, or wish they could. It recaptures the whimsy of childhood with the joie de vivre of youth. Does it sound like a peculiar enterprise for college girls? It's not. It's for the children of St. Teresa's parish in Billerica in a fund raising campaign. It will also lie presented on December sth at Newton Community Centre, and later at the Marist Convent in Framingham, at Jeanne d'Arc Academy, at Newton Courttry Day School, and possibly elsewhere.

Front Row Center [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1959

Front Row Center Rodgers and Hammerstein's newest composition, The Sound of Music, opened last month at the Shubert, bringing' Richard Halliday's favorite musical comedy star, Mary Martin, to Boston again. As Maria Rainer, governess to the Von Trapp family in the war-panicked Austria of 193'8, Miss Martin creates a genuinely warm characterization not unlike that made famous by Gertrude Lawrence in the King and I. It doesn't seem to matter that the puckish Miss Martin is occasionally hard to believe in a part of twenty-year old tortured innocence, — her winning personality enchants away reality. As her husband, Theodore Bikel has a rather wooden, stodgy part which he plays in a wooden, stodgy manner. His heaviness is relieved, however, by the presence of an adorable stage family of seven, ranging in age from four to sixteen years, each "step of the stair" cuter that the last. The children's voices blencf pleasantly and succeed in endearing the dit-ty-like melodies of Do, Re, Mi, So L...

Attention Authors The National Federation of Catholic College Students is considering the publication of a paperback anthology of Catholic college student writing on a commercial basis. Newton students who would like to submit work for consideration are encouraged to do so. It would be good to ask one of the Newton English department for criticism of offering before they are submitted.
