An Inexpensive Gift for Lent [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 March 1956

An Inexpensive Gift for Lent With thoughts of Lent come thoughts of "giving up". We "give up" candy, cigarettes, or that cherished extra half-hour of sleep in the morn'ing, as a personal sacrifice, an indication of love of God. Though these little sacrifices are a fine manifestation of our love, there is a more positive manifestation. Why not supplement the "giving up" with "giving"? We, as Christians, understand "giving" to be synonymous with "charity", for charity is the basis of Christianity. Charitable deeds or remarks, or even kind thoughts, are all gifts to our fellow man. Small though they may seem, these gifts of charity are important, to ourselves and to others; yet they cost nothing, and are as plentiful as each of us will allow them to be. How wonderful to have an inexhaustible supply of gifts! We can give not only to our families and friends, but to strangers with whom we come in contact in our everyday lives. We at Newton have so many occasions to give of ourselves to o...

And It's Not Intellectualism! [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 March 1956

And It's Not Intellectualism! We wouldn t need any $64,000 quiz kid to identify the scenes of most of our conversations the ones about what was for lunch, who just called, the latest success of Marlon Brando. Any Newtorfite could tell you it's the snack bar, or the smoker, or a corridor, or just about any room on the campus. And you'd say there's nothing unusual about what we talk about; so would I. But I tnink we both might wish there were. We might wonder (when we're in one of those rare thought provoking moods), why it is that our conversations so seldom reach any depth beyond surface subjects like these; why we (at least most of us) shy away so instinctively from whatever has the slightest tinge of "intellectualism" ? An education is more than an accumulation of material underlined in text-books or copied into notebooks. It is learning a way of thinking and living. That's what we're going to remember and use twenty or forty years from now, when we've forgotten the outline of Eng...

The Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 March 1956

The Lighter Side Gleewood is the name of the well known book on Middle English poetry by Mother Williams. In a forgetful moment Margy Cra'lg gave it the unscholarly title, Glow-Wotm. Overheard: "They've been going together for quite a while. She's got his car." If the crossword puzzle is always missing from your New York Times, you can blame it on a group of Sophomores. At their last meeting Margy George was seen, wearing that "it has to be right" expression, and trying to fit "Benjamin Franklin'' into four spaces. Two items from the Sophomore English test: Answer to "Identify The Globe" ... "a rather crude apparatus used by Shakespeare, Marlowe. Bacon, and other famous writers to locate geographical places. It wasn't very satisfactory but the best they could do 'in those days." "Umlaut was the theme of many Old English poems." Jane Slade reports this remark by a friend of hers at another college: "The most terrible thing happened to me, I got my thesis rejn,t"d." For some reason Ja...

Juniors Present Shakespeare Weekend [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 March 1956

Juniors Present Shakespeare Weekend On the tenth of February, through the twelfth, the Class of 1957 presented the annual Junior Weekend Ball and festivities. As You Like It was the theme of the weekend ; and the school took on an appropriate Shakespearian cast. Black> white, and red combinations of sixteenth century silhouettes, stained glass windows, and heraldic crests made up the decorative motif. On Friday night, the Tempest raged at Mansion Inn in Framing'ham. A modern Prospero, Harry Rogers and his band provided the music which some refer to as heavenly, others as other-worldly. To whichever school they belong, all agreed that it was excellently rendered Jazz. The weekend favors—pompomed berets in the school colors—were distributed and worn with Falstaffian bonhomie. The program for Saturday began with a buffet-dinner in the dining room, transformed for the occasion into a baronial hall complete with metallic doors and crestdd walls. The couples then proceeded to t...

Valentines and Theses [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 March 1956

Valentines and Theses February 14th had more than the usual significance for seniors at Newton this year. In addition to frilly Valentines, seniors were concerned with a much less romantic subject - the deadline for their senior essays. Copies of the six to ten thousand word papers typed with proper formats had to be submitted on this inappropriate date to the Dean of Studies and the professor for whom they were written. Topics this year were particularly varied. They ranged from Cathy Brennan's discussion of the moral values in F. Scott Fitzgerald's writing to Hunsie Dempsey's sociological case study of a young boy. Anne Carroll Cullom considered whether or not Verdi's operas contained intentional political references. In the Philosophy department, Sheila McCarthy wrote on the theory of love of Ortega y Gasset, twentieth century Spanish existentialist. Instead of the traditional essay, some students have substituted more original enterprises. Sally McCarty, an art major, is modelin...
