“W&C" Staff Plan 2 Issues [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1961

“W&C" Staff Plan 2 Issues The first issue of Wheat and Cockle will soon be distributed. This magazine, which comes out twice a year, is the official publication of the Literary Club. This year, larger print has been used so that articles will be easier to read. The magazine, which was increased in size last year, has been reduced to twenty-four pages this issue because of the cut in allocations. The only alternative was to publish once a year. The editorial staff decided it is more important to have a smaller issue twice a year. Wheat and Cockle is composed of articles from students interested in writing. Members of the Art Club contribute illustrations.

Reactions [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1961

Reactions During the past six months, the problem of world peace has become increasingly crucial. Newspapers throughout the United States headline ominous developments in troubled areas, advertise the sale of private bomb shelters, and suggest Christmas gifts of powdered food supply-kits sufficient for a two-week period in the event of sudden attack. The implications of possible and even probable warfare cannot be ignored. It is essential that preparations for great danger be great. Unfortunately, however, motivation by fear and doubt has begun to force us into a negative and pessimistic position. On November 4th, President Kennedy issued a nationwide plea for prayers for world peace. This official turning to God seemed to indicate the possibility of a more hopeful and mature attitude on the part of Americans. The initial and continued response of the country alone can actually determine whether a general change of outlook has occurred. Such an estimation would be difficult to reach...

From the Editor [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1961

From the Editor In this last issue of "885" under our direction, the editors wish to thank our subscribers for continued support as well as for criticism, which keep the paper going. A review of the goals we accomplished during the year includes steps toward expansion of staff, size and scope. The news and editorial staffs were enlarged for greater efficiency, and production increased to two 6-page issues on longer pages, and a special seventh issue in April celebrating the fiftieth issue of "885." The staff concentrated on current and coming news, and features of general campus interest. The campus profile series was introduced as a regular feature in the November issue, and Around Tcwn was resumed as a regular feature except in issues before major vacations. The Monday night journalism class, which is open to the college, was also resumed this year, primarily to improve the quality of articles. We can recall no serious mishaps aside from a snowbound issue which was published via s...

The Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1961

The Lighter Side Last week the Faculty of Newton College of the Sacred Heart received a letter postmarked Newton, Massachusetts. It read: "Dear Sir: Could you please tell me if there really is a thing called vacation? I have always believed in it, but now all my friends tell me there is no such thing." It was signed "A Student." The Faculty wrote back: "Dear Studejit: Of course there is a vacation. Your little friends are wrong if they tell you there isn't any. Don't you believe them, Student! Oh, we realize that exams begin the day vacation ends. "You can have a lot of fun from December 20th to January 10th, joyfully perusing your fragmentary notes! And, dear Student, we are sure that if you really co.ncentrate until it's time for Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, you will be justified in playing in the snow on the 25th. "Look at it this way, dear Student: theses are not really due for a couple of months. After all, the ethics final is over. With SWC tests every week, you have to kno...

Letter [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1961

Letter Dear Editor, We ask for a balanced point of view. We feel that an extreme rightist point of view is as dangerous as an extreme leftist point of view. Congressman Rousselot, a member of the John Birch Society, recently expressed on campus an extreme rightist point of view, a point of view condemned by both President Kennedy and former President Eisenhower. This subject is shrouded with emotionalism. It is time the shroud be lifted and all the facts be heard. We make an appeal to both the Republican and the Democratic clubs on campus to bring to Newton just this balance. Perhaps then we may have a rational foundation for judgment. We wish to remind the campus that a balanced point of view can be attained only after an equal consideration of all aspects of each side. It is only in this way that we can attain that freedom of choice which is truly consonant with the American point of view. Signed, Jackie Bosch Ann Jaap Maureen Slattery

The Other Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1961

The Other Side Each year, at the close of their November meeting, the Catholic bishops of the United States issue a statement, embodying the directives they consider most relevant to American Catholics. This year their message is entitled: "Unchanging Duty in a Changing World," and although it has not aroused the comment some for. mer statements have, it is one that Newton College students should consider seriously. The bishops recall the origins of the United States as a nation committed to the principles of moral law. But the time has come, they say, to confess that our national ideal no longer rests upon a solid foundation of morality. The evidences of moral decline are everywhere to be seen, and we are all familiar with them, as reviewed by the bishops. It is the final exhortation of the bishops to which I would call your attention : "Above all, the Christian today must have a profound sense of mission, which will cause him to bear witness to his religious faith and his moral co...

Marcel Commends Students on Production of His Play [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1961

Marcel Commends Students on Production of His Play The production of Gabriel Marcel's La Chapelle Ardente, which was attended by the distinguished author and philosopher, drew a crowd of almost 450 professors, students and guests to Newton on November 18th. M. Marcel praised the students for their sensitive interpretation of a play which he termed difficult to perform, and said their "incarnation of the characters was very close" to what he had intended forty years ago. The play was put on by a group of students, under the direction of Miss Joan David, director of Newton's dramatic club in 19591960. The production had been planned since last year, and the cast, chosen before summer vacation. had hoped for an audience of about 150. But by the week before the performance 350 acceptances had been received from professors and students from philosophy, English, drama and modern language departments of more than twenty-five colleges in New England.

Sophomores Comment On Changes in SWC [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1961

Sophomores Comment On Changes in SWC Because of the many changes in the SWC program, "885" decided to question several sophomore SWC-vet-erans about their opinions of these changes. Their views, however, do not necessarily represent general class consensus. Pat Kostek feels that, although the lectures contain too much interpretation of the ideas of philosophers, "the essays force the student to think for herself, and ■more courses are needed that require students to think rather than just to regurgitate what others think." Marlia Mundell considers that this year our reading program seems less a tread-mill process and better coordinated so that we can more easily complete and assimilate the weekly assignment. The testing system appears more sensible, but the question-wording is ambiguous. Celia Welsh wishes the students could choose between a "thinking" and a "feeling" paper; sometimes the book for a "feeling paper" week would be more applicable to a "thinking paper." She also feels ...

Another View on SWC: By New Co-ordinator [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1961

Another View on SWC: By New Co-ordinator During the last three months freshmen and sophomores have become accustomed to visitingMrs. Joseph Dever in her new office. She is the coordinator of the Study of Western Culture program, which is the basic course for lower classmen. Together with Miss Barbara Nathan, she has tried to improve the efficiency of SWC, which is in its fifth year. Twice monthly tests have been replaced this year by papers on the reading matter. This gives the student more time and incentive to think and assimilate assigned material. The testing system now consists of a weekly quiz covering lectures of the previous week. Mrs. Dever believes this will allow the student to give inclusive expression to her knowledge. Born in Colorado, Mrs. Dever attended Mt. St. Scholastica College in Atchison, Kansas, where she received her Bachelor of Arts degree. S'he continued her studies at Harvard Graduate School, where she obtained, an Ed. M degree in Guidance. While in college...

Catholic Action Re-Assessment '60-61 [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1961

Catholic Action Re-Assessment '60-61 With Cuban refugees pouring into South Boston, with Cardinal Gushing pleading for help for his Latin-American Missionary Society, with our own Reverend Mother General and Reverend Mother Be.nziger thanking 1 us for our small share in the school in Taipei, and urging us to extend our efforts to Africa and the world, none of us can be unaware of the .needs of the Church and, of our responsibility in the face of those needs. Nor can we long avoid the question: "Are we who have so much really doing for those who have so little?" The first step towards answering that question is to assess what we are doing now. This, "885" is trying to do in the present issue. Later, we hope to receive suggestions and comments as to what more we should be doing for the work of the Sacred Heart in the world. The following tables are a summary of the work done during the scholastic year 1960-1961. This is exclusive of the work done by psychology and sociology majors for...
