The Other Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1960

The Other Side Now that the semester examinations are over and corrected, and some stocktaking has been done in many quarters, it will be useful for Juniors and Seniors in particular to ask themselves whether they are in any degree committed to sacrificing themselves to the advancement of knowledge. This question is suggested by a passage in American Catholic Crossroads by Walter J. Ong, S.J.: Because we are today so acutely aware that knowledge is indefinitely expansible in any given field, we are aware that at some point in a person's education a sense of the incompleteness and continual growth of knowledge must be acquired . . . An awareness of this condition of knowledge would seem to lie back of the willingness to sacrifice oneself for a subject, and it would seem to be one of the basic acquisitions communicated in higher education even at the undergraduate level ... A certain maturity has to be presupposed, if not at the beginning of the college or university career, at least ...

The Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1960

The Lighter Side This is really a wonderful time of year, when you think about it. What I mean is that it's nice that all the drudgery of studying' for exams is over, and you don't have to bother about cramming again until May. Now, this gives you time to think. The other night I was looking for a pencil in my purse and found a picture taken last summer, and it made me think about how great Christmas vacation was. I, of course, enjoyed seeing Dad and Mother ... I enjoyed seeing everyone, in fact. But I believe that the best part of all was that 1 as a person had more to offer. 1 think it was because of the exercise my mind had since September. You know, the acquisition of knowledge is stimulating (I read that somewhere), and Bill, my brother, was really impressed by all that I had learned. He's a philosophy major and we spent hours talking about philosophy until he began referring to Kant and I explained that we hadn't come to that yet. But it was just about that time that Bill got ...

Senior Art Projects Brighten Duchesne Smokers [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1960

Senior Art Projects Brighten Duchesne Smokers By Bobbi Schroetter Along with its new building projects and increased enrollment, Newton is also expanding its departmental curriculum. The Art Department, for one, has a larger faculty, new courses, and more creative assignments. The art major's senior thesis has undergone a change, too. This year the four majors, Connie Lucca, Gail Stout, Elaine Holland and Carole Ward, have undertaken the decoration of the two study smokers in Duchesne. The main plan is for a mosaic or mural, around which the decor of the room will be centered. Since September the art majors have been planning, designing and working on this project, which should be completed by June. The layout in the East Smoker Connie Lucas says, presented a difficulty at the start: the room is long and narrow, with a low ceiling made still lower by unsightly pipes. A theme had to be decided upon which would incorporate these architectural obstructions and at the same time give the...

Too Clear a Look at Distractions of Daytime Television [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1960

Too Clear a Look at Distractions of Daytime Television By Mary Stehling Daytime television, I'm convinced, is a peril to womanly virtue. It lures defenseless housewives away from their ironing; it detains tired shoppers in the television department; it captivates the girls in the smoker after class, and its seductive invi- tation is this: don't tell me your troubles, I'll tell you mine. The ladies cannot resist. The Problem today has attained a peculiar vogue. It may not be that people have more troubles, but they are certainly more willing to talk about them. I'at Boone and Dr. Peale and Mrs. Roosevelt solve them for us, but television has the insidious task of bringing them to light, of showing us that others have them, and, if we have none, of making a few suggestions. When 1 turned on the set in the smoker yesterday afternoon —even the most unmechanical girl can operate one, which is all part of the fatal attraction -— a Caduceus appeared on the screen and an organ peal of medic...

Nan's Father Entertains Ike [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1960

Nan's Father Entertains Ike Those who saw (or missed) the picture of Vice Admiral George Anderson with Barbara Eisenhower in the Boston papers before Christmas will be interested in the account of how Nan's father (and the U. S. Navy) entertained the Presidential party in the Mediterranean during Eisenhower's recent eleven nation world trip. Her father's letters to Nan divulge the following details: On the morning of December 15th, 1959, Vice Admiral Anderson welcomed President Eisenhower aboard the U.S.S. Des Moines, the flagship of the tith Fleet, and entertained him for three days on a cruise across the Mediterranan to Toulon. Admiral Anderson staged air demonstrations for the benefit of the Presidential party, and on the afternoon of the 16th, the British Commander-in-Chief, Mediterranean, on 11.M.5. Tiger "Passed Honors" to the President. This put U. S Navy protocol into action, and in Admiral Anderson's words "We had to man the rail and render full honors in return." Although ...

Semantics and St. Thomas [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1960

Semantics and St. Thomas Mother Gorman's dissertation for her doctoral degree in education at Catholic University, on "The Educational Implications of the Theory of Meaning and Symbolism of General Semantics," was published in June 1958, and has received some unusual reactions from the General Semanticists. This group holds that words have different emotional overtones for different people, that our language does our thinking' for us, that there is no unchanging truth or morality. Mother Gorman shows that although some of the warning's of this group are valid, there are "many dangers to an uncritical adoption of their principles." She points out that Saint Thomas foresaw many of these problems when he said: "The thing known is in the knower according to the mode of the knower." In the lead articles of the Winter 1959 issue of Etc., official organ of the International Society for General Semantics, Anatol Rapoport of the Institute of Mental Health at the University of Michigan, discu...

The Prospects are Pleasing As chairman of Social Committee for the coming year of 1961, Nancy McAuliffe, a day-hop from Jamaica Plain. Massachusetts, will ViCud. t.b.2 committer witb i r n r 1 year of relevant experience in this field to her credit. Nancy, an English major, organized the Sophomore party on Saturday afternoon of Junior Week-end; went on to become Social Committee member-at-large and co-chairman of Junior Weekend this year.

Tale of Talent [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1960

Tale of Talent Friday evening, April Ist, the annual freshman show threw light on "the problems of freshmen." A lonely, misguided freshman named Molly, played by Susan Bell, finds herself being "rushed" by the suave leader of the Purple Society of Wholly Crocked. Molly looks for guidance to her junior sister Jill, played by Randi Innes. But Jill is not in the least cooperative or yielding. Karen Morley rewrote and directed the songs, many of them Gilbert and Sullivan tunes. Credit goes to Linda Gleason for her admirable job of choreography. The settings were executed by Sue Callahan and Marilyn Reed. "They were fantastic," said Kathi O'Riley, the versatile student director. The costumes from the purple knickers to the black maids' dresses were a conversation piece. They were assembled by Penny Brennan, Sally Burton, Margie Finnegan, Kate Lumaghi, Millie Perkins, Mary Rotoli, Connie Schepp and Carleen Testa. Writers of the play were Carol Singleton, Kate Nugent, Karen Morley, Donna M...

Librarian Stresses Today's Need: Broader Reading Mr. Philip J.

He spoke on the role reading has played in the development of western civilization. Mr. McNiff, who serves on the Newton Advisory Board, told his audience that college students have a serious obligation to continue their education. This, being National Library Week, is a good time for students to consider the prominent place books should take in their education after graduation. He pointed out, especially, that the Catholic with a college degree must take an important part in society and accept his role as a participating citizen. After Mr. McNiff spoke, Literary Club members and their guests had an opportunity to speak informally with him in the Hardey Lounge.

Glee Clubs Combine On Sunday, March 27th, at 3:30, the Newton and Boston College Glee Clubs presented a joint concert in the Playhouse, under the direction of Mr. C. Alexander Peloquin.
