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

The Other Side In looking through the New York Times the other day, it occurred to me that the sophists are not all dead Greeks of the pre-Christian era, but that the ultra-modern variety has taken over Christmas. You know the characteristics of the sophisticated mind — clever, subtle, skillful, and therefore in many ways delightful, but also often deceitful. Is there not much of this in the blue lights and silver balls on pink Christmas trees, in Christmas cards that portray, cleverly, the results of revelry, in gifts that represent nothing in the giver or the recipient, but are what advertising agencies decree is the thing to be given this year? It is all very bright and cheery and tinselly, in an expensive sort of way, but what has it to do with the reality of Christmas? Unless those who understand the meaning of Christmas (and I presume all of you do) are determined to preserve and interpret it, they will be submerged by waves of sophistication, overwhelmingly brilliant and clev...

Advantages of an Honor System Discussed by Two Student leaders [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1959

Advantages of an Honor System Discussed by Two Student leaders The idea that the break between high school and college should be complete is part of the guiding philosophy of Newton. Freshmen are granted the same privileges as members of every other classEvery student must assume the responsibility for her attendance at classes. Students are not to be "spoon-fed" but to assume responsibility and form their own character. Responsibility and character are the bases of an honor system, which is a kind of contract by which the student agrees to uphold certain specified standards and to make it known to the proper authorities when she or anyone else violates those standards. In return, the student acquires a sense of responsibility and self-respect, a realization that she is on her own, so far as her conduct is concerned, in those areas which the system governs. An honor system can increase the maturity and integrity of the in- dividual. In an honor system freedom is given its rightful p...

Nancy Madden: A Summer Ambassador to Turkey [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1959

Nancy Madden: A Summer Ambassador to Turkey by Kathy Gately Summer '59 brought Nancy Madden to Newfoundland, Scotland, Frankfort on the Rhine, and finally her ultimate destination, Ankara, Turkey, where she joined her Navy family. Nancy was not the typical tourist, the "ugly American." She had come to live and to learn. Spoiled by the charm of the European cities, the luxury of La Traviata for a mere seventy-five cents, the delicious German beer and weinerschnitzel, the delightful company aboard TWA's "Round the World" flight, Nancy expected to be equally enchanted with Tuikey. Her first impression of Ankara was of a city alive with diamond lights. Not until hours later did she discover the reason for the twinkling effect — Ankara enjoys a fifty watt electric system and bulbs in the city constantly change in intensity. "Welcome to Ankara," mumbled the customs agents, who then proceeded to rifle her luggage and confiscate Viennamade articles and Austrian chocolate. This was one of th...

Former Political Prisoner Tells of Communist Regime [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1959

Former Political Prisoner Tells of Communist Regime One of the highlights of Dr. Nemethy's "Four Isms" course was the recent visit of Mr. P. Farkas, a former political prisoner of the Communists in Hungary. Mr. Farkas was arrested on April 29, 1951, charged with high treason against Russia and the Communist regime, and subsequently sentenced to death. For reasons unknown to this day, his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment, but during the revolution of 1956, he escaped. The discusion was begun by Dr. Nemethy who asked key questions about Mr. Farkas' life under Communism- Ilis replies were astonishing. In the Communist court system a person is guilty until proved innocent. The accused is allowed to be present at his own trial, but is given no legal assistance to aid in his defense. In the course of his five years' imprisonment, Mr. Parkas spent one hundred and fifty-six days in solitary confinement, deprived of sunlight and fresh air, but with a five-hundred watt bulb burning ...

Travels in England Topic of Speech [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1959

Travels in England Topic of Speech By Mrs. Webster On Wednesday, December 2nd, Mrs. Kenneth G. T. Webster, lecturer of English at Newton, spoke to the Literary Club on her "Literary Travels in England" in the summer of 1957. Mrs. Webster told the club that England, and particularly Oxford, offers those who spend a summer there in a private home. She mentioned places of literary significance, such as the Bodleian Library, Christ Church College and Magdalen College. The main part of her talk concerned the little things the tourist enjoys only when she is not in a rush to see everything: the proper way to make tea, the fascinating statues on one of the buildings of Oxford, the conferring of honorary degrees on a group of important men including Prime Minister Harold McMillan, and the striking of "Big Tom" the bell in the tower of Christ Church Cathedral. Mrs. Webster's summer was not spent entirely in Oxford. She visited castles which, as she explained, are still maintained despite the...
