Grace Conley Clarifies Nature of Appeal Board [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 March 1953

Grace Conley Clarifies Nature of Appeal Board At Student Government Assembly on February 12th, Grace Conley, president, defined the nature and operation of the recently established Board of Appeals. The board is composed of the president, the dean, the five wardens, the four class presidents, and two members at large, elected by the Student Representative Committee from its own members. The board is not a sentencing body, Grace explained. Campuses are still to be given by Student Government. However, if a student feels that she is innocent, or that mitigating circumstances exist in her case, the board upon request will convene to hear her appeal. Since law at Newton is paternalistic, Grace said, honesty is its basis. When a Student appeals her case, board membets assume an honest reply to any questions asked. Evidence is accepted on the word of the appealer.

Being Lent Minded [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 March 1953

Being Lent Minded "Give me time and the world is mine." This, as we all heard in our retreat, is the motto of our generation. Men are striving today to build an earthly Paradise. Man takes great pride in himself for unloeking the secrets of physical science. At the same time, he overlooks the timeless Creator of this power and the world blows up in his face. Human knowledge and power are ends in themselves. There is no place for dependence on God. Some Catholics, believing themselves broadminded, act as their own interpreters of Church laws. The revelation of Christ taught by the Church is not very important—cancel out the past —this is progress. God bears with this stupidity and still keeps on loving us despite our arrogant certainty that we have no need of Him. God has no need of us. We can give Him nothing since He is the totality of all being. Mankind must rely on Him. Our souls are made to His image and likeness, and so can find perfection and happiness only in Him. To place ou...

Fair — But Gold [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 March 1953

Fair — But Gold Everyone at Newton would he horrified, perhaps petrified, if there were no heat in the rooms. Only a small percentage of the college misses the heat of academic discussion. At Newton this is a very rare kind of heat. Ten or twelve times a day in ten or twelve different classes, professors present the students with an extensive collection of ideas through the ages, ideas given form in history, philosophy, and literature. It is difficult to believe that the only impression these ideas leave with the students is in their notebooks. Contact with the academic life of large non-sectarian universities might be stimulating for the majority of Newton students. Among the young people attending these colleges there are many who do more than attend. They are groping for truth and judging by what standards they can find. They are not always in possession of any truth beyond the scientific, and are often painfully aware of this fact. But they compare, analyze, and evaluate as best...
