CHRISTMAS A FANTASY? [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1953

CHRISTMAS A FANTASY? Can American Literature be serious and affirmative at the same time, that is, can it accept ultimate values and still pretend to be adult? James Jones doesn't think so. In an interview he recently gave to Newsweek magazine, he implied that a man who accepts ultimate values can produce only fantasy. There is, of course, a kind of fantasy which is an attractive cloak of truth, but that isn't the kind that Jones means. He means the purely imaginative, unfounded variety. Evidently, however, he considers "From Here To Eternity" a serious work, for in it he denies any kind of value and meaning in life. We don't agree with Mr. Jones. We happily believe in a story which he, no doubt, would label fantasy. By affirming the dignity of man we can deny life's futility. What better proof can there be of this dignity than the Incarnation when God so loved the world that He sent His Only Begotten Son to become part of it. Christ could have come in any number of ways, but He cho...

First Impressions [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1953

First Impressions When a customer tries out a brand of cigarettes for the first time and is not pleased with it, he won't try another pack of the same brand to see if it's better. His first impression lasts. Newton, because it is new, is making first impressions and they should be favorable ones, for they determine outside opinions of the college. Almost every day most Newton students sign out at least once to go off campus. Do you? If so, when you go out the gate you take on more than your own identity. You become "a Newton girl" or "a Sacred Heart girl," the college's best advertisement. Building plans and a larger enrollment are exterior signs of Newton's growth, but our reputation also has to grow. It can grow only through your actions and mine. If we give Newton a bad reputation, we are tearing down what others are trying to build up. On the street, at the movies, shopping at the Centre or out on a Saturday night — all the time, wherever we are —we are Newton. Why not keep our ...

The Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1953

The Lighter Side When the Providence College Glee Club came to Newton to practice for their Concert, Mrs. Balling, Newton's director, conducted one of the joint numbers. Before she began, she gave a bit of advice to the boys: "Perhaps you have never been directed by a woman before, but if you plan to get married you had better get used to it now." The "B" division of Liturgical Latin spent an entire class period writing out intelligible Latin which will appear on invitations to the classical tea party. The party, arranged by the Classics professor, Doctor Cirtautas, will be held on December 15th, at 5:00 P.M. at the Tea House, and promises to be reminiscent entertainment of the classical greats and the period in which they lived. Astounded classmates gasped as Mary Ford Whelan's marathon Chaucer translation lasted throughout the entire fifty minutes of the class period. As the bell rang, Mother Maguire said to the exhausted translator: "Thank you, dear, that was very entertaining." ...

New Ski-Tow Etiquette Proposed for Hand Book [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1953

New Ski-Tow Etiquette Proposed for Hand Book On November 14th a ski-tow was built at Newton College running north-north-east by south-south-west on Duchesne hill. This is the first ski-tow to be erected on the college grounds and, it is hoped, the first step towards the building of the longed for boardwalk. This reporter remembers a crisp December morn in '52 when a certain professor (he remains unidentifiable) stating that he wished to go to the library, disappeared rapidly down Duchesne hill. An alert eye-witness remarked : "I don't know what happened to him. There wasn't any snow or ice!" After a thorough examination of the grounds the two policemen who cracked the case from their beds at the hospital said that the cause of the tragedy was excess sanding. Who thinks of the professor now? All that remained was a small sand castle on the right of the bridge. It was obvious-—-New-ton needed a SKI-TOW!! The new athletic Newtonite can now approach the hill with confidence and a feelin...

Newtonites Participate In Catholic Action Work [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1953

Newtonites Participate In Catholic Action Work With the addition of so many newrecruits this year, Catholic Action has included many activities in its 1953'54 program. Under the leadership of Arleen Hanrahan, '54, president, students devote an hour or more each week to one of the various projects. The Christ Child Settlement House in Cambridge provides an opportunity for those who enjoy working with children.
