Club Space-Stages "The Carmelites" [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

Club Space-Stages "The Carmelites" On Saturday, April Gth the Dramatic Club will present Dialogue of the Carmelites, from the screen play 'by Bernanos. Mr. Frank Dolan has made selections from three existing versions of the play. Incorporated into the whole were parts taken from two translations: Michael Legat's "The Fearless Heart," and Gerard Hopkins' "The Carmelites," and from the NBC presentation of the play in opera form. As director-producer, Mr. Dolan has employed "space-staging" to convey the dramatic effect he visualized. He defined the keynote of this method of production as pure simplicity. . .lights, music and acting played against a dark hackground. The staging particularly suits the the unembellished plot of the drama. Dialogue of the Carmelites concerns the difficulties and rewards of cloistered life set against the background of the French Revolution.

Trivial .... Or Not? [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

Trivial .... Or Not? The leading editorial in the New York Times on March 2nd began: "The smoke was still rising from the funeral pyre in Jamaica Bay yesterday when Colonel Glenn and his fellow astronauts came into La Guardia Field to begin their triumphant progress through the city which tumultuously welcomed them. The infinite sorrow of our civilization as it advances and retreats, as it succeeds and as it fails, was felt and seen in the swift transition of nearly a hundred persons from the sunlight of a happy day into everlasting darkness." The contrast between sunlight and darkness in the last sentence is well-presented, is it not? Read it again for content. The New York Times is the accepted spokesman, both nationally and internationally, for the American people. We are known as a Christian nation. The concept of Christianity seems to have changed if this is our outlook on the meaning of death . . . everlasting darkness. Perhaps our age of power has influenced our attitude; man...

Enjoy Yourself [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

Enjoy Yourself The Learned and the Serious are traditionally expected to frown upon the statement: "enjoy yourself, it's later than you think." Perhaps there is a connotation to this phrase other than the usual "eat, drink, and be merry" note. We are here at college for a serious purpose, pursuing serious subjects, but there is such a tremendous joy to be found in every aspect of our lives. How rarely do we ever consider enjoyment in terms of learning — the joy of suddenly understanding a new idea or truth — of encountering the minds of personalities of professors and friends around us, or of contributing to the collective activities of a group or club in the college? All these are to be enjoyed. Our elders in every field of study and the professions are continually lamenting the calibre of the younger generation. We are "apathetic, afraid of risks, insecure, weak, indecisive, and without values." Each one of us recognizes something of herself in these criticisms, and it is difficul...

May We Suggest [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

May We Suggest Most of us are aware of the importance of our signature. We regard (and rightly so) our signature on a document as a personal commitment to whatever that document states. We are not so naive as to sign on the dotted line without first reading and studying carefully the words which precede it. However, we must not bend over backward in our caution. Anonymous letters, as any editor will admit, are far less effective than signed ones. Recently on campus, there have been notices posted on bulletin boards propounding points of view on controversial issues. It is commendable that students at Newton are thinking and making their thoughts known to others. It is not so commendable that, in many cases, they fail to acknowledge these thoughts as their own. Authors of unsigned statements must be ashamed of what they are saying.

The Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

The Lighter Side BEAT POEMS Heart filled with hope I race. Rushing, panting. The grey day spent in wildest fancies. Can evening these fulfill? My goal is near. And then hope dies. Dreams fade before my dullened eyes. Translation: How could they lock the kitchen door? The ancients weary with their burden grumble Clutching each day as it passes. Yet eager for the final hour. It is accomplished. Translation: My thesis is in!!!! She trudges down a well worn path. Frail shoulders bent With heavy load. The end is near. The doors loom wide, inviting.

The Other Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

The Other Side There are many possible ways of looking at work. A job-to-be-done, whether it require head, or hands, or both, may, first of all, be seen as a penance, on the lowest level merely dull or exhausting, on the highest, a salutary reminder of Original Sin. Again, work may be seen as a source of joy, of the particular kind of delight that accompanies the full and ordered exercise of our human powers, and that can both speed the process and lend a special radiance to the product. Lastly, work can be a source of Grace. Seen in relation to the whole framework and purpose of human existence, the smallest task can take on new meaning, value, and dignity, and can, in a larger scheme of things, play a part far transcending its immediate significance here and now. The penitential aspect of work is not far to seek. The matter with which we must wrestle is often untra'ctable, unresponsive; what Virgil calls the iustissima tellus does not always give fruit in proportion to our labors,...

Dominican Scientist Gives SWC Lectures During the week of February 26th, sophomores had the opportunity to hear Father William Wallace, 0.P., lecture in four SWC meetings. He discussed great men in the history of science, including Dalton, Mendeleeff, Thompson and Rutherford, and showed the influence they have had in the field. Fr. Wallace is professor of natural philosophy at the Dominican House of Philosophy in Dover, Massachusetts. A foremost scientist and exponent of Thomistic philosophy of science in the United States, he is most interested in the development of modern science from the medieval period, and attempts to explain the theological and philosophical implications of this development.

Marist Alumnae Teaching in Peru [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

Marist Alumnae Teaching in Peru Early last month, Sister Mary Concetta and Sister Mary Shawnleen, Marist Missionary Sisters, and members of last year's graduating class, left the United States to work in the missions in Latin America. Both education majors at Newton, the Sisters are now teaching at the Colegio San Isidro, a grammar school in Lima, Peru, which teaches children from six to ten years of age. The school, staffed by the Marist Sisters and some lay teachers, is beginning its third year and already has over 250 pupils. This year a kindergarten and fourth grade were added to the school. The Marists hope to narrow the wide gap between classes in Peru, and create a deeper social consciousness in those who are able to help their countrymen.

Self-Expression In Clay and Ink [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

Self-Expression In Clay and Ink Every other Wednesday, when the moon is full, certain sane, stable Newton girls turn into Potters and Scribes. A Potter, as the name implies, makes pottery, and a Scribe (from scribere) makes letters. Potting and scribing, however, are not so relatively easy as one might imagine. The potter works with what is known as a wheel, but actually looks more like a primitive bicycle. Her task involves sitting on the seat of this wheel with her right foot touching a cement disc, immersing both hands in a bowl connected and motivated by said disc, and finally, spinning the disc and molding the clay. This, of course, is impossible unless she possesses a high degree of patience, coordination, and creativity. Strangely enough, it appears that not a few moon-struck artists possess all three requirements, judging from the variety of creations in the Duchesne Art Studio. The Scribe, on the other hand, works with pen and ink, the medium of her craft being fancy mediev...

College Joins Cancer Drive [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

College Joins Cancer Drive Research centers like the National Institute of Health, Washington, D.C., seem to feel that a breakthrough in the problem of cancer may be near. To furnish funds for this work, the National Cancer Society will hold its annual drive on Ajpril 24th. Headquarters in Boston have always relied on this college as the main support for the drive in the Newton area. The college's efforts have proved a great aid in the drive. Since the date of the drive coincides with our Easter vacation, Newton students are participating in before-and-after-hand efforts. In March, volunteers assimilated the necessary materials, and worked in offices preparing for the actual drive. A large part of this work was done by sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Beginning April 30th, freshmen will help with so-called "mop-up" work. This means covering those streets not worked on during vacation. Information on the causes and symptoms of the disease are to be given out, as well as the request ...

Doctor Marsh Runs Survey On Graduates [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

Doctor Marsh Runs Survey On Graduates During the last seven years the education department of Newton College has graduated 118 students. A recent survey conducted by Dr. J. Patricia Marsh reveals what eighty-eight of these graduates are doing with their education. Many have gone on to do graduate work at Columbia, Tufts, Harvard and Villanova. Those who went directly into jobs are teaching in grammar schools, in institutes for the retarded, and in progressive systems in areas from Sudbury, Massachusetts to Mannheim, Germany. Not all have entered teaching. Some have gone into fields as diverse as 1.8.M. Service Representation and television advertisement. Dr. Marsh believes that "teaching calls for professional competence which is well combined with a liberal arts education." This has been borne out by the survey results and by the comments of the girls themselves. Almost all the letters expressed enthusiasm about the rewards of teaching in spite of difficulties involved. The educati...

Oriental Impressions [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

Oriental Impressions Sachi Hirose is pictured here in the Alumnae Lounge with one of the delicate, hand-made dolls her father sent from Tokyo. Sachi had asked him for an appropriate decoration to grace Duchesne's Oriental Room. The other doll figures, now in Duchesne, portray two gaily-cos-tumed men in a scene from the traditional Japanese "lion" dance. According to Japanese legend, the baby cub, after birth, must scale the cliff to become reunited with the mother lion in a joyful celebration. Since there are no lions in the Orient, this beast represents fantastic power to the Japanese. Sachi, a Junior, attended Sacred Heart University in Tokyo for three years before coming to Newton this fall. She finds that the two schools contain much the same atmosphere and "spiritual friendliness", although the family spirit seems closer to her in Tokyo. Newton is more liberal, she said, because of the unlimited cut system and generous social rules. Sachi was also impressed, with the power of s...

Theatre Review: You Never Can Tell [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

Theatre Review: You Never Can Tell by Pamela Hitchens It is remarkable how much an accent is part of a person, and how much a British accent is part of the wit of a Shaw play. The Charles Playhouse recent production of George Bernard Shaw's You Never Can Tell has overcome this first hurdle to the extent that it is impossible to distinguish the British from the American members of the cast. You Never Can Tell is, like all Shaw's plays, essentially a debate, with Shaw in full control. The debate inevitably concerns Shaw's theory of the Life Force, which he conceives to be the essential power in the human race, in man, evolving with him toward Superman and Pure Thought. Those individuals ahead of their time in ideal and behavior are the advance guard who forward the evolution of the Life Force. The debate, in this case, was enacted on the Charles Playhouse projected playing area, a novelty and advantage over the traditional recessed stage, in that the action is thrust into the audience...

Education Board Advise Freshmen [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

Education Board Advise Freshmen The Education Board has taken the first steps for acquainting freshmen with requirements and curricula in the major fields. Mimeographed sheets listing courses and credits for each department were distributed earlier and special meetings were scheduled for last week. Interviews with department heads have been arranged at these meetings. Suggestions concerning the system for planning semester schedules, the appointment of an advisor on graduate school and on careers, have been submitted to Mother Quinlan for consideration. These suggestions and others are discussed at bi-weekly board meetings and put to vote. Those passed by a two - thirds majority are presented to the Dean. Mother Quinlan discusses proposals with Maureen Slattery, head of the Education Board, and Judy Davin, president of Student Government, and then submits them to the faculty.

"Well" to Come Out Week of May 7 [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

"Well" to Come Out Week of May 7 Latest reports from the yearbook staff indicate that the 1962 WELL is almost completed. The third and final section went to press on March 7th. Editor Kathy Jacobi hopes that the WELL will be ready for distribution during- the week of May 7th. The editors have revised and reorganized many features of the WELL, but have kept it the same size as in recent years. They have also initiated a new policy con- cerjiing' the selection of the incoming editor, who is now to be chosen early in the second semester of her junior year, so that she can work with the editor. In February, the juniors by open ballot chose Judy Simms. Judy is a junior transfer student from Halifax, Nova Scotia, who majors in English. Both she and Kathy think the experience she is gaining will be very helpful next year. Members of the business staff are presently selling yearbook subscriptions in the dormitories. Students are encouraged to support the 1962 WELL.

Nun Reviews New Research On Montessori [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

Nun Reviews New Research On Montessori Next year, Boston College will offer a course in teaching the Montessori method of education. Students at Newton learned about this method wheji Sister Josephina, S.S.J., lecured here Tuesday, March 13th. Sister Josephina is professor of education at Boston College and Director of Instructional Services there. Last year, she received the Faculty Award for study and travel in Europe, which enabled her to observe the Montessori method operative in European schools. The method itself is not new. It was inaugurated by Maria Montessori, an Italian educator, early in this century. It allows children to progress academically at their own speed, yet it imposes external discipline upon them. The children begin school under this system at the age of three. They are grouped according to age rather than grade. Boston College will opeji a model school using this program in the fall of 1962.

Father D'Arcy Reads Hopkins In B. C. Lecture [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1962

Father D'Arcy Reads Hopkins In B. C. Lecture "He is charming and original, but quite out of this world!" Gerard Manley Hopkins as poet was described in this way by fellow Jesuits who knew him during his lifetime. On Tuesday March 13th, Reverend Martin C. DArey, S.J., lectured on the poetry of Hopkins at Boston College. Father D'Arcy referred to his own thrilling discovery of the Jesuit poet when he was still unknown. He has learned much about Hopkins from the poet's personal diaries and letters. In discussing the poetry of Hopkins, Father D'Arcy spoke of "inscape" and "instress." He emphasized the importance the individual thing had for Hopkins ) how he saw that even the tiniest flower "gives us news of God." Father D'Arcy made special reference to a "marvelous conception" of theology contained in Hopkins' poetry. "The Son of God who took on the finiteness of man brings back the treasure of time and space which are yours and mine, the trophy of the world, to God the Father." This th...
