The Fine Art of Receiving [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1954

The Fine Art of Receiving The Christmas spirit is always described as one of giving, but there is another much neglected spirit included in Christmas — the spirit of receiving. Months before December twenty-fifth, the brain shaking problem of what to get who, is thought about and struggled over, while a Yule-oiled voice on the radio counts rapidly diminishing shopping days. Presents are wrapped; scotch tape runs out, and ribbons are manipulated into impossible positions by fantastic creative imaginations. Finally when the twenty-fifth arrives, a long procession of younger brothers, sisters, and grandmothers carry the fruits of their labor serenely to the Christmas tree and stand back happily though somewhat anxiously. What happens next? In three minutes the boxes are all unwrapped. The "fantastic ribbon" finds itself on the Christmas tree, and the living room looks like a bargain basement. The book was pronounced perfect. The head of the family wears his argyles all day and the Moth...

Revolving with the Hub [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1954

Revolving with the Hub After 'Is the mail out yet?', the most familiar cry heard in the Stuart postoffice is — 'Anyone driving into Boston?'. Occasionally, someone is; hut more often we find our way to the Corner and endure a 40-Jminute ride on the M.'i'.A. Once in town, we may enter any one of the worlds which make it — Boston. There is the shoppers' world, the business world, the social world. But we students should enter with the greatest interest that one which Boston bluebloods regard as unique — the world ol culture. This world offers us the Symphony at cut-rate prices and in the interesting if frustrating form of the open-rehearsal. It brings us into contact with the thought and culture of our times through such modern experimental dramas as those produced by the Poets' Theatre. It draws us into discussion and debate by sponsoring lecturers such as Dorothy Dix, Robert Frost and Archibald MacLeish. These opportunities are part of our education. Education is more than just bein...

The Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1954

The Lighter Side On November 9th, the sophomores took their senior sisters to dinner at Tallino's in Chestnut Hill. Table-hop-per Kay McCarthy, kneeling to share some news with Sugie Bacciocco, was tapped on the shoulder by a waiter who remarked: "You can get up now; the service is over!" At last, Newton is humoring its large group of left-handed students. As the first shipment of classroom equipment arrived, a surprising number of southpaws showed up from the college's ranks to cheer on the unloading of six left-handed chairs, led by an unidentified monotone voice. In a thrilling Senior vs. Varsity hockey game on November 18th, in which such star players as Pat Byrne '55 and M. T. Jugeat '55 displayed their professional stick work, it was a tense moment when senior fullback Carra Quinlan, running somewhere, slipped and accidentally kicked the ball into the goalie cage. The score: Varsity one, Seniors nothing!

NEWTON SENIORS HELP AT CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1954

NEWTON SENIORS HELP AT CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL Jane Quigley and Kuniko Shiobara, Newton's two senior sociology majors, are finding out that their field work, helping with young mongoloid, cerebral palsy, and polio patients, is as rewarding as it is educational. This semester, they have spent every Friday afternoon at the Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Memorial Hospital where they work with the children who range from the ages ot lour to twelve. Kuniko says that going into the hospital is like entering another world, and she prescribes a visit to Kennedy for any chronic complainers at Newton. The children, who are sometimes both physically and mentally delective, are completely dependent on other people every minute of their day, and in Unit where Kuniko works, half the children can not even talk. The ideal is to treat these children normally, but even when they are especially lively and intelligent, the speech barrier is hard to work around. After two weeks Kuniko's group all know her and wave a...

THE PROS AND CONS OF A NEW CATHOLIC PLAY [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1954

THE PROS AND CONS OF A NEW CATHOLIC PLAY Newton students this year are taking more advantage of the Boston try-outs ol new plays. For several past weeks in the smoker, one topic of conversation that raised controversial opinions was Graham Greene's first play, The Living Room, which opened in New York on the 17th and closed the first week ol December. The new Newton theatre-goer might compare her criticisms with the ones below. The story is of young Rose Pemberton (Barbara Bel Geddes) who becomes the mistress of the executor of her mother's will, a middle-aged married psychologist. Her aunts, both pious Catholics, and their invalid brother, a, priest (Walter Fitzgerald) try to convince Rose of her mistake, but she prefers to ignore their advice. Unable to solve her problem and to find real happiness, she commits suicide after reciting a prayer remembered from her childhood. Elliot Norton, the critic of the Boston Herald Traveler, quoted Hugh Hunt, director of 'The Living Room, as sa...

What! Another Emergency? Don't Get Overwrought Call on the Newton Four [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1954

What! Another Emergency? Don't Get Overwrought Call on the Newton Four With the first semester coming to a close, Newtonites find themselves wondering what they would have done without Frederick, Patrick, Michael and Benny, who from the first day of school in September were called upon to open trunks without keys, replace broken windows, rewire lamps, and give needed pushes to stalled cars. Frederick Ormond, well known as Mr. Fixit, has worked on the SchrafTt estate for nineteen years. Always called in for such mild emergencies as jam--med doors and leaking faucets, Fredcrick can supply hammers and screwdrivers from nowhere, and although he protests he is not a plumber or an electrician, he has never failed to do the job. Michael Mallcy and Patrick Hughes both live on the grounds, where they and their families are known by all the students. Indispensable for moving statues for processions, or setting up bleachers for basketball games, Michael and Patrick are also the school chauffeu...
