Newton Draws Faculty From Memphis to Madrid [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

Newton Draws Faculty From Memphis to Madrid Newton has increased her faculty again this year with new professors of varying geographical and educational backgrounds. Madame Nina Ravera, who is teaching Russian and French, calls Nice on the Riviera her home. Madame Ravera's main interest is travel and the study of the many countries which she has visited. Madame praised what she has seen of Newton and added that she hoped her high opinion of the students would be the same at the end of the year. Vienna has given Newton Dr. Ellen Taxer, professor of German. Now residing in Newton, Dr. Taxer formerly taught at Danvers High School. She is happy to be teaching on the college level and particularly at Newton College. Mr. William Daniels, a new ad- dition to the English department, who hails from Memphis, Tennessee is an avid fan of jazz. Mr. Daniels makes his home in Needham with his wife and four children. Ask if he liked Newton, he replied enthusiastically. "I really love it. The girls ...

"Prism" To Shed Light Again [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

"Prism" To Shed Light Again Since its foundation two years ago, the Academic Council has become one of the most important student organizations on campus. As a communication aid between administration, faculty, and students, the Council is intended to help students achieve academic proficiency in all fields of study, and to make it easier for faculty and administration to achieve their own high educational standards. On Monday night, September 23rd, the Council held a meeting, open to all faculty members, to outline its nature and purpose and to solicit suggestions for this year's program. At this meeting the Council discussed, the publishing of its magazine, Prism. Prism tries to acquaint students with studies in other fields besides their own. The Council, with faculty suggestions, decided to have feature articles ex- plaining the method of each academic discipline i.e. how a psychologist, a historian, and a scientist would approach the same subject matter. Each Council member has...

Our Choice [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

Our Choice Then' is a mutual responsibilty of administration, faculty, and students to achieve the aims of Catholic higher education. Students may and must contribute to the formulation and implimentation of policies governing the academic and social life of the Catholic college campus. The New England Region of NFCCS submitted this to the Congress. Newton had proposed it to the Region. On September 30th, Mother Quinlan offered us the opportunity to put this theory into practice. By asking us to follow our own judgement about attending classes without the threat of penalty, she recognized our right to contribute to the formulation of Newton's educational policies. But this right imposes a responsibility on us to use it to achieve the goals for which Newton strives. The administration's willingness to consider giving us the freedom of an unlimited cut system after we had abused it so much during the three semesters it was in effect, proves that their goals for Newton are high. We mus...

New Slant On SWC [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

New Slant On SWC Contrary to the opinion of many freshmen and sophomores currently enrolled in SWC, it is one of the more valuable, if not the most valuable, course offered to the students of Newton. To some it is a time consuming course consisting of laborious reading and frantic note-taking, to others it is fascinating and challenging. The latter attitude is the one which should and can be held by every student of SWC. The course is designed to acquaint the student with all the disciplines and with as many schools of thought as possible. Its approach is comprehensive, allencompassing, yet has a definite particular meaning directed to each of us. An appreciation of what SWC entails, and the contribution it makes to broadening us as individuals, is immediate to some; to others it comes later when all the fragments of information have jelled in the mind and fallen into a pattern. This fall, to enhance the value of SWC, to enable students to feel more a part of the course, and to delv...

TO THE EDITOR: [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

TO THE EDITOR: Dear Editor, If within the past college year the Newton campus has become more aware and conscientious, as the former student government claimed and as the student government questionnaire results seemed to indicate, then we would suggest that this year the student body develop this sense of awareness in an honest and mature appraisal of student life at Newton. We have been invited by the Administration to take such a look at ourselves in the light of the cut system. In the interest of good journalism, we would hope that in the event such a formal appraisal is made, "885" will become an open forum for this campus. The "885" staff should be encouraged to become more sensitive to student opinion. Si.nce there is no other organ of student written expression of opinion at Newton, individuals and groups should feel free to use the newspaper for this purpose. One of the best ways to engender progress, and to train students for an active, thoughtful role after college. is th...

Book Reviews Alexandria Quartet [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

Book Reviews Alexandria Quartet ... by Cathy Beyer Although the Alexandria Quartet is not of extremely recent publication, I have nevertheless chosen to discuss it because of the interest it has recently aroused on American college campuses. The four books form an integrated whole, but definitely not in the sense in which one ordinarily considers a tetralogy. Durrell called it a "word-continuum," a "soup -mix recipe of three parts space and one pare time. Justine is a purely subjective treatment of the experiences of a young Irish schoolteacher in Alexandria. These experiences do tend to fall into a time pattern, but they are treated rather as events of increasing significance, centering on Justine Hosnani, a beautiful and brilliant, but willful, passionate, and impulsive young matron of the city. Balthazar is also a subjective treatment by the same narrator of the same time period, but it is based on a new knowledge of character, personality, and emotion introduced by the title fig...

Feminine Mystique [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

Feminine Mystique by Phyllis Kearney The problem posed by Betty Friedan in her new book, The Feminine Mystique, cannot be passed over lightly. She urges the American housewife to stop frustrating herself by doing nothing but housework, enslaving herself by catering to women's magazines, over-femininzing herself by refusing to see herself outside the home, and de-personalizing herself by living through her family instead of for herself. Mrs. Friedan holds that the modern American woman 'has no identity. She is not a true person, but has become, instead, "Mary's mother" or "Tom's wife." To become a true person, says Mrs. Friedan, a woman must say ".no" to housework and commit herself to something in which she can find fulfillment. This commitment depends largely on the person, but it is not enough to read, to attend lectures, or to enroll in a community project. What she must do is find something outside the home to which she can devote herself completely — not as a housewife, but as ...

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

The Other Side Mother Louise Keyes should be known by reputation to Newton College students of every generation, because the most characteristic qualities of the college's educational plan, especially in its intellectual aspects, originated to a great extent with her. For that reason I want to share with you my own impressions of her. Mother Keyes is a singularly hard person to write about; she lures one into an unaccustomed use of superlatives. I know many neople who consider her the most brillia.nt intellectual they ever met. Her speculative powers were of the highest order, and she was incapable of doing even the most ordinary things in a way that was banal or unintelligent or in poor taste. Daily life with her was an educational, if at times disconcerting, experience. One day T asked her the reason for some dormitory regulations and she said: "Well, let's look at it from the point of view of the four causes. . . ." There was no affectation in this. She simply spoke as she though...

Professors Vacate During Summer [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

Professors Vacate During Summer Just as students enjoy the summer months, so do the professors. Just as we study, play, and work, so do they, both at home and abroad. "885" undertook to follow up their vacation plans. Two happy announcements are top items in the news. Mr. Lyons married this July, spent a month in the Rocky Mountains, and settled right around the corner in Newton Highlands. Dr. Gleiman, soon to join the married ranks, celebrated his engagement to Nancy Waeber, '63, by shuttling between Boston and Montreal. They plan to marry in Montreal in November. Best wishes to them all! Generally, everyone combined study and vacationing. Madame Courtois visited some former students at Allison University in Canada who received their M.A.'s this summer. While she taught Phonetics at the University, she and her artistic husband enjoyed the Canadian countryside. Mr. Godfrey extended his field of scholarship through a Civil War course at Boston College. After this, he participated in ...

Expanding Interests Prompt New Courses [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

Expanding Interests Prompt New Courses Most of the maor fields this year have added one or more new courses to their programs. These courses were prompted by (1) student interest and .needs, as in the Behavioral Sciences and Mathematics; (2) an increase in the number of students in the field, as in German and the Classics; and (3) the addition of new faculty members in other fields. Industrial Psychology deals with employee-employer relationships, morale, etc., and studies the application of academic psychology to the industrial field. Ethnic Groups of the United States studies, in historical context, the more important of the minorities in the United States, each according to the region in which it is prevelent.

Cafeteria Dresses For Dinner Too [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

Cafeteria Dresses For Dinner Too The days of the incongruity of dressing for a cafeteria-style dinner are over at Newton. The "dress and heels" custom is still ' n effect but the clumsy trays no longer come betvveeji our meals and the table. Efficient students set, clear, and reset tables for the well-dressed young women who begin queue-ing Lefore the cafeteria doors around 5:20 P.M. and are just finishing their coffee at 6:45 P.M. Soft "mood music" also creates a more gracious atmosphere during the dinner hour. The new system is another example of the social committee's campaign to improve social activities at Newton and, since the evening meal is an important social function, any improvement in its procedure is a noteworthy innovation.

Newton Welcomes Two [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

Newton Welcomes Two This year Newton welcomes two new religious to the college. Mother Claire Kondolf replaces Mother Sweeney as Treasurer, and Mother Kiyoko Komoto is Assistant Professor of Japanese and Assistant to the Registrar. Mother Kondolf comes from Stone Ridge in Washington, D.C. where she has been Treasurer for the past two years; Mother Sweeney takes her place there. Newton is not completely new to Mother Kondolf. She was at the Country Day School ten years ago, but she feels Newton is now really established as an intellectual community, although too many girls are unwilling to break from the mold and follow their true inclinations. She believes that students should continue wholeheartedly with the present movement toward constructive criticism and action, instead of mere complaint. Mother Kondolf points to the many advantages Newton students have, such as concerts, lectures, discussions, andes- pecially, through SWC, the benefit of hearing all the faculty in different de...

NSA DISCUSSES CIVIL RIGHTS [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 October 1963

NSA DISCUSSES CIVIL RIGHTS by K. Withers This year, the national congress of the National Student Association was held at the University of Indiana. Over sixteen-hundred colleges and universities gathered during the last two weeks of August to express student opinion and form a statement of policy for the coming year. The Congress was divided into three periods of activity. The delegates spent the first three days in seminars dealing with the specific problems of the academic -community and the next three in committee and sub-committee meetings to draw up legislation. They spent the final part of the Congress in continuous legislative plenary, during which the bills passed in committee were extensively debated and finally voted upon. The Civil Rights issue dominated discussion. A special resolution was passed in support of the march on Washington, and four delegates were sent to the Capital to observe and participate. Speakers at the Congress included James Meredith, the first Negro...
