Famous Last Words [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1955

Famous Last Words A second cup of coffee, a last hand of bridge, and oh, just a little longer in the sun to insure the lasting tan. After all, what's ten minutes? And the minutes pass and precious time is measured out cheaply and wastefully. Procrastination is too mild a word for this common vice. It's downright time-wasting laziness and its most unfortunate feature is that it can be so easily rationalized. Half-hours are ignored. "I'll no sooner get settled than I'll have to go to class". Entire evenings are spent in the smoker with the supposedly justifying motive: "I'm socializing and one can't underestimate the value of socializing in college." In spite of the rationalization and the conquered sense of guilt, timewasting has its inevitable bad results — dashing off an ill-fated paper an hour before class, studying and mostly worrying all night before a test, trying to get hold of a reserved book at the last possible moment. Then comes the grand resolution: Never again; and then ...

It's All in the Golden Rule [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1955

It's All in the Golden Rule Ihe book skids heavily from Sue's hands and bounces down the cement stairs. She grins at her companion. "That's all right; it's just a library book." . . . An unbreakable plastic tumbler fascinates Mary; she decides to test its respect for the widely advertised guarantee. Thumping it on the floor: "Look, only a scratch!" . . . Jane drops a scrap of paper and a kleenex on the corridor floor. "Oh, that's all right; someone's got to sweep it anyway." Ann comfortably deposits her feet on the new furniture. "You know," she says, "they tell me you can actually wash this material." None of these remarks are unfamiliar to our ears, or perhaps even to our lips. We seem irresistibly urged to give "that lived-in look" to everything new, just to make it really feel its purpose and use —at least, that's how we like to explain such things to ourselves. But isn't it carelessness or laziness, or selfishness that makes us do these things? Books, glasses, furniture are all...

The Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1955

The Lighter Side April first gave the Sophomores opportunity to reverse some psychology on Father Friel. When he was presented with six chirping chicks, Connie Weldon couldn't resist asking his favorite question, "How do you like your eggs fixed that way, Father?" A recent American History test posed some difficult questions and received some obliging answers. One stated that Eugene O'Neill was an Irish tenor. Mary Ellen McKeon is now famous for her answer to: What was the Tea Pot Dome?—Washington, D.C. during prohibition. The final performance of "She Stoops to Conquer" was over at last when a weary actress was overheard murmuring something about the perfect contribution for Wheat and Cockle—a short story entitled: "The Rains came . . . and the audience didn't." The Sophomores have converted the new Snack Bar into a composing studio. In the afternoon, when genius burns, they bring forth songs interpreting the books assigned for World Lit. class. Here arc a few: For Medea, the tunc ...

MARRIAGE, TRAVEL, STUDY, WORK AWAIT CLASS OF '55 THIS SUMMER [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1955

MARRIAGE, TRAVEL, STUDY, WORK AWAIT CLASS OF '55 THIS SUMMER After Freshman year and the initial shock of "growing-up", college students lose their identity in an eight-term whirl of exam-weeks, weekends and classes. Then, all of a sudden, with only two weeks left, they find themselves face to face with the momentous decision of what they want to be, now that they have really grown up. Out of thirty-six seniors who are facing the world-shaking problem now, twenty-five already are busy making plans for their careers, while the remaining few are just as busy thinking. Carol Morgan, Mary Chisholm, Pat Finn, Yasuko Ohashi, and Kuniko Shiobara have decided to teach. Kuniko and Yasuko are going home to Japan, for the first time in four years, where they will both teach at the Sacred Heart Academy in Tokyo.

Third Editor of "885" Takes Over June Issue As A. Sperry Graduates [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1955

Third Editor of "885" Takes Over June Issue As A. Sperry Graduates With this issue of "885" Ann Sperry, editor-in-chief for Volume 111, eases the work into the hands of her successor, Connie Weldon. Ann, who is from Wilton, Connecticut, has spent the rest of her time as the senior class student government member-at-large, a staff member of Wheat and Cockle, and driver of a green Chevrolet. She became the second editor of the newspaper last September and since has been seen with her fourcolumn check list organizing articles at class intervals, assigning them to staff members and finally correcting — and rewriting them. Before becoming editor Ann was a staff writer, sports editor, and critic of the cartoon. This year she did most of the photography herself but was outstanding in her ability to produce —spontaneously—a necessary article minutes before the deadline and rush it off to press.

Archbishop Blesses New Stuart Wing [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1955

Archbishop Blesses New Stuart Wing "The new wing of Stuart House is an example of the functional beauty found in modern architecture. Schools are no longer designed simply for their beauty; now the first thought is to construct a building suited for its use," said Archbishop Richard J. Gushing on Monday, April 18th, officiating at the blessing and formal opening of Stuart House and the laying of the cornerstone for the new dormitory. This will be called Cushing House in gratitude to the Archbishop for all he has done to help the college. Mayor Howard Whitmore of Newton was among the many friends, parents, and benefactors of the College present to see the Archbishop perform the double blessing ceremony, first in the original wing of Stuart House, and then before the statue of our Lady of the Trinity in the new wing. In his address to the invited guests, the student body and the members of the faculty, the Archbishop expressed his delight in the growth of the college since its foundin...
