Newton Campus: A Bit Of Ancient History [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1955

Newton Campus: A Bit Of Ancient History It is easy to visualize the Newton of the future with its chapel, library, and additional dormitories, but do you ever wonder what the campus looked like twenty-five, fifty, or a hundred years ago? A plaque just inside the stone wall on Centre Street informs those interested that the Second Meeting House of Newton once stood there. More recently at about the turn of the century, the course of the Newton Golf Club covered the land from Stuart by the tea house, down to Duchesne. In 1914 Henry I. Harriman, head of the New England Light and Power Company, returned with his wife from their wedding trip to Europe with plans for a French chateau. Duchesne House was built to his specifications after Mr. Harriman had ordered the club house, which is now the home of Mr. Michael Malley and his family, moved to the foot of the hill behind Hardey. Now shelves of books fill the game room, dining room, living room, and breakfast room. Mrs. Harriman's sewing ...

English Historian Pays Visit To Newton [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1955

English Historian Pays Visit To Newton On November 27th, the Community, faculty, and a group of the students from the college had the unexpected privilege of meeting Arnold J. Toynbee and his wife. Dr. Toynbee had been lecturing at the Andovcr Newton Theological Center, and took some of his free time to visit Newton for an informal discussion. During the visit, Dr. and Mrs. Toynbee were introduced to many of the nuns, the faculty, and the junior and senior history majors. Dr. Toynbee spoke informally, answering questions asked by the members of the group in the reception room of Barat House. The most presently practical of all the answers given by Dr. Toynbee, was, no doubt, his reply to Barbara Bireley's question: "Doctor, how do you ever get the time to write all your volumes?"' The answer given was: "You have to work when you don't want to as well as when you do want to."

— Club Notes — CATHOLIC ACTION More than one hundred and fifty students heard Father Paul V. Harrington from the Boston Chancery Office give the first in a series of marriage lectures sponsored by the Catholic Action Club. Father Harrington discussed pre-marital relationships, including dating and engagements. The second talk in the series was given on November 29th by Doctor Frances Smith, who considered the medical aspect of marriage. Catholic Action hopes by these talks to get an integrated view of marriage as expressed by a priest, a doctor, a career wife, and a mother. The first Newman Club Forum of the year was very successful. The question discussed was: Is there an obligation for a Catholic parent to send a child to a Catholic college. Students from M.1.T., Harvard, Tufts, and Babson were among the guests at this discussion.

Dean Announces New Courses, Language Program Mother Quinlan, dean of studies, recently announced a new language program which went into effect at the end of the first semester. The minimum requirement for any student is either two semesters of mathematics or two semesters of a language. This requirement, however, may be fulfilled by passing a reading test in the language. Pass'ing this test gives the student twelve language credits; credits may be earned in more than one language. The design of the test is to insure that the student passing it can read scholarly and literary works in that language without a dictionary. The suggested method of preparation is reading five or more books using the dictionary only when necessary. In the fold of Eng lish, the results of the National Testing Program show that out of 152 colleges Newton ranks ninth. The faculty still feels, however, that more should be done to enable the college student to write acceptable English. A definite program has no...
