IRC Invites Speakers On USSR and Congo [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

IRC Invites Speakers On USSR and Congo The International Relations Club intends to be as active this semester as it was first term, and has planned a program to carry out this intention. There will be joint meetings with IRC clubs from other campuses. The club hopes to invite several speakers on foreign affairs: a professor from Harvard to speak on United Nations policy in the Congo, Mr. Lawrence Curtis, former representative from the state of Massachusetts, Mr. William Putnam, President of WWLP-TV channel in Springfield, and a speaker on Russia. At the regular bi-weekly meetings, club members will continue short key-area reports, followed by discussions on a central issue in foreign affairs. Club officers hope members will be as active as they were last semester, and encourage non-mem-bers to attend their meetings as guests.

It's Been Fun [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

It's Been Fun As retiring editors of "885", we leave the post reluctantly because we have had such a good time. It was fun to know what was going on around campus, to work with our staff, to try to please our readers and to learn that they were sometimes pleased, to know and enjoy Mr. Norman, our photographer, to learn from Mother Maguire, our advisor, and from Mr. Kiernan, our printer. You may say that everything seems better in retrospect, and you are probably right. There were times when we were less happy: for instance when it stormed the day our first issue was ready, when we had to change our whole layout after cementing the copy to the dummy, when we had to fight the 7:15 A.M. traffic to get to the printer in Roxbury, and when we almost lost an advertisement mat in the mail. But we can look back now and assure you it was fun. We want to thank you, our readers, for your suggestions, enthusiasm, and support, and hope you will make "885" as happy an experience for the new editor...

Let's Consider [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

Let's Consider Recent discussions concerning the new stipulation on the number of academic hours freshmen will be allowed to take (and other classes are encouraged to take) have prompted us to take another look at Newton's academic approach. The assumption behind the limitation is, of course, that sixteen class hours and the study which should supplement them, done thoroughly, are more than sufficient work for a college student to undertake. Whether or not you like the restriction, you cannot deny this fact. It is this point that interests us. We think that a thorough acquaintance with the subject you are studying involves much more than simply doing the work assigned. Required work, it would appear, is the minimum amount to be done and only a framework on which to structure further learning on the subject. This approach, instead of limiting our academic freedom, encourages individual initiative. Rather than just nodding at a reading list, the student with more time might be able to...

Recognition [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

Recognition Most of us feel amply rewarded when, after four years of college, we receive at graduation either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree. These two degrees are intended to reward all forms of our academic endeavor. However, there are some students who have done work in class above and beyond what is required of them, and the work of these students deserves some badge of recognition above and beyond an ordinary degree. We refer, of course, to those who, in addition to taking the usual courses at Newton, minor or even major in knitting. Rare is the classroom not peppered with its Mademoiselle Defarges, needles clicking in rhythm with the professor's voice. These knitters, however, have gone beyond the achievement of their literary predecessor, for they not only incorporate names into their knitting, but dates, complex ideas, even whole systems of thought, if we can judge by the length of their class notes! As the course proceeds, their less gifted fellow classm...

The Other Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

The Other Side The "other side" is not always over the faculty fence. It can also be in oneself. For instance, another side Of studying hard and getting poor marks is self knowledge and facing reality; Of not studying and getting good marks is temporary cleverness and future weakness; Of reading the books assigned is learning something; Of reading outlines of books is cutting knowledge short; Of borrowing is getting used to it; Of sorrow is sympathy; Of being lost is finding oneself through prayer; Of finding Christ at Mass is security and seeing what really matters. by C. Putnam, R S.CJ.

New Editor Appointed [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

New Editor Appointed With our next issue, Mary Ellen Palenchar will succeed Anne McCracken as editor of "885." Mary Ellen, a native of Trenton, New Jersey, is the oldest of five childen. Her nineteen-year-old brother, John, is in the Jesuit Seminary at Wernersville, and her sister, Cathy, a senior at Villa Victoria Academy in Trenton, hopes to come to Newton in the fall.

An English major, Mary Ellen has worked on the staff of "885" for three years. She had been an editor of her high school yearbook. What spare time she can find is often spent ice skating, sewing, discussing matters of current inter- est, or listening to modern jazz.

Man Behind the Scenes [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

Man Behind the Scenes by K. Dolan Mr. Arthur Spellman, surprised by a request for an interview, was doubtful that anything he could say would be considered newsworthy. Perhaps he is unaware of the importance of his meals to the students of Newton College. Mr. Spellman manages our cafeteria: he buys the food, plans the menu, and "tries to keep everyone happy." He comes to Newton after spending some seven years at Harvard and a year at Boston College. To please his 630 local critics, Mr. Spellman is constantly trying new techniques, not only to improve the taste of the food, but to get it to us faster. For example, he found that the addition of extra butter and milk in the mashed potatoes not only improved their taste but made them easier to serve. Although the line at lunch time may seem to stand still, figures show that our kitchen serves five hundred people in forty minutes. Besides managing the kitchen Mr. Spellman handles the complaints. He is bombarded daily with requests for sp...

Newton Receives D'Espagnat Painting [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

Newton Receives D'Espagnat Painting ■'Flowers and Fruit on tt~; Table" by Georges D'Espagnat may well be the beginning of an art collection at Newton. At least, this is what Mr. Nathan Cummings remarked when he and his wife gave this painting to the college. The still-life, which is twenty-six inches by thirty-two inches, hangs in the Alumnae Lounge. Mr. Cummings, a friend of the college, is Chairman of the Board for Consolidated Foods Corporation in Chicago. The artist, D'Espagnat, (18701950) though relatively little known, paints in the Nabis style. The work is an intimate painting wif'n patterned designs in the wall and the table. The color scheme is close and subtle.

From East to West ... And Back Again [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

From East to West ... And Back Again by R. Drew In 1918 Miss Nellie Jenkins left Eden Hall. It is only after a long and varied career that she returns to the Sacred Heart as house mother of Duchesne West. From high school she went home to Maryland to instruct sixtyfive pupils in a one-room public school. They ranged in age from six to fifteen years; Miss Jenkins taught them "everything from their ABC's to first year algebra." After her fifth year there she resigned from her teaching post to tutor, instead, the children of naval officers. One of the officers, commenting on her mathematical mind, told Miss Jenkins she should be with the Navy in the Bureau of Supply and Accounts. In that very winter of 1928, she was employed as a file clerk by the Navy Department. She quickly worked her way up to various executive positions. In 1942, she moved to Springfield, Mass. with members of her family. There the War Department appointed her head of the gauge section of the Springfield Armory. In...

Stuart No. 5 Transformed Into New Language Lab [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

Stuart No. 5 Transformed Into New Language Lab by P. Hitchins This year there is something impressive about Stuart's Room 5. Work-a-day desks and chairs have been replaced by fifteen official looking booths, faced by a formidable desk on which are a number of control buttons. The fact is that Room 5 has graduated from a classroom to a Language Laboratory. Dr. Jacques Zephir, in an interview for "885," said: "I like the expression Language Laboratory because I believe in a scientific approach to the study of languages." The lab is a means to this scientific approach. The control desk, called the console, is equipped with an intercom system so that the professor may communicate with an individual or with a class in the booths, or may broadcast recorded selections to them. Each booth has earphones hooked up to the console, and is provided with a tape recorder for the student to practise, exercise and drill privately. Language laboratoies have been in use in this country for ten years a...

Students Compile Survey Results [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

Students Compile Survey Results Last semester the Steering Committee presented a questionnaire to the entire student body. Fiftytwo percent of the college answered it. Sheila Mahoney, who set up the questions, and conducted the distribution and collection of the questionnaire, explained that it was not trying to prove anything, but to trace trends of thought in the college. Students were asked to answer thoroughly and thoughtfully certain questions about Newton. Compiling the answers and comments was a difficult task. Janet Regan, Carol Donovan, Claudette Delaney, Mary King, and Ann Curry helped with the statistics, and although only half the student body responded, the variety in the answers suggests a good representation of opinion. "885's" report is general; Steering Committee plans to print a more complete study in the near future. Fifty-two percent of the Newton College student body means 354 students: of these, sixty-seven were seniors, 107, juniors, seventy, sophomores, and 1...

The Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 February 1963

The Lighter Side A jewel thief could make a haul on these premises. All he would have to do is find a way to get twenty-five diamond rings from the fingers of twenty-five engaged students. The annual upsurge of interest in the diamond industry begins at Thanksgiving and ends in June across all women's campuses in the country. Everywhere, young ladies in knee socks and sneakers are sporting very grown-up jewelry on the third of the left. The popularity of the blue-whiie stone has spread broad and far. The recurrence of the occasion indicates perhaps; that college engagement is becoming a custom. All we know is that jewelers are busy and coeds are happy. And burglars seem to be staying away. Perhaps the sentiment has got them.
