Ground to be Broken On Site Near Library By Middle of January [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1956

Ground to be Broken On Site Near Library By Middle of January Steam shovels and bulldozers will soon be adorning the Newton campus, for the college is building again, this lime a dormitory to house two hundred and one more students. Construction will begin on ihe site between Cushing and Duchesne in January, and—barring unseasonal weather and steel strikes— should be completed by next September. Detailed plans for the double-wing structure include two lounges and a large reception room. The three floors of student rooms will be mostly doubles and triples, with a small number of singles. The architecture of the main section of the building will be in harmony with Duchesne, although the general structure of the wings will follow the plan of Cushing. A large parking space will be laid oul near the dormitory, and the circle by Duchesne will be enlarged to lead to the front entrance of the new building. The front door of the building will face and form a right angle with the front of Duc...

THE LOST SEASON [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1956

THE LOST SEASON Advent might well be called the lost season. Its double significance of joy and sorrow has been lost in the shuffle of expectation—of what Father Joyce, S.J., recently called "department store liturgy." The anticipation of Christmas holidays, shopping, family reunions, overshadows this relatively short period. The joy might seem evident, yet it is only hollow cheer. The aspect of sorrow, of penitence, is overlooked entirely. Christ is to bring light into a world of darkness. "The land that was desolate and impassable shall he glad, and the wilderness shall rejoice and shall flourish like the lily." Yet in this traditionally merry season it is sometimes hard for us to see any darkness in the world. We forget about the suffering around us. We forget thai much of the world is anxiously seeking relief and freedom. It is easy to let tinsel and gaiety distract us with false merriment. By observing the Liturgy we can recall the true meaning of Advent. Its mixture of joy and...

HUNGARY'S GREATEST GIFT [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1956

HUNGARY'S GREATEST GIFT Life is the most precious gift God gives his creatures. All of us know how highly we value such a gift—to what extremes we go to protect it, to keep it from injury or destruction. The sacrifice of one's life for a good is the highest gift anyone can give, the greatest love a man can show. Understanding of this exalted meaning and price of love is perhaps obscured in the shuffle of modern affairs—or was obscured until the Hungarian people showed the world how they understood the price of the love of freedom—the sacrifice of human life. The Hungarian's love is an unyielding force driving for an ideal. There is no abstraction in this love, no poetry or glory; there is only bitter reality, the life-giving horror which few of us can imagine. Three thousand students, as well as many other people, met armed resistance to their love of truth and freedom, refused to yield to it.and were brutally conquered. These students were not "citizens of tomorrow; they were the w...

Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1956

Lighter Side One senior at least was not so engrossed in the woes of senior thesis writing as to lose her sense of humor. When asked how her first draft was coining along, Winnie Madden replied: "Oh. it's a breeze." Imagination under stress, it seems, is not lacking in the sociology department this year. It is amazing what inspirations a desperate search for an answer on a test may evoke. Question: Name three types of suicide. Answer expected: egotistic, altruistic, and anomic. Margie George: stabbing, shooting, and poisoning. Hut Margie George ; s not the only sociologist to provide us with copy, lilllie Cavanagh, asked to discuss the Polish peasants, answered in terms of culture rather than geography. "There are," she began logically, "two types of peasant, some polished and some rather crude . .

Allers Formula for Happiness Asks “Willingness to Serve” [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1956

Allers Formula for Happiness Asks “ Willingness to Serve” "Man must be willing to serve, and the opportunity to serve is lost in tlic society of modern man today." This was one, among many, of the stimulating statements in a lecture by Dr. Rudolf Allers to an enthusiastic audience on November 19th. His topic was "Psychiatry and the Modern Mind." Discussing the modern situation, Dr. Allers stressed contemporary man's quest for security and self-knowledge. But men have unfortunately gone outside themselves to find this self-knowl-edge. Values are placed in what a man does, not in what he is; men seek themselves outside themselves. A true concept of self. man. and the universe has disappeared today, as has the solidarity of the family. Success has become the highest ideal, and in the shuffle man has lost his willingness to serve. Rather he is too busy revolting against authority, asserting himself, and seeking achievement. Comfort and material possessions have come to be idolized. Conf...

Freshmen End Class Elections After Whole Month's Balloting [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1956

Freshmen End Class Elections After Whole Month's Balloting The Freshman class, after a drawnout election period, has at last chosen officers for the coming year. The top executive position is in the hands of Sally Ann O'Connell, an enthusiastic member of the freshman Long Island contingent. Sally was graduated from Saint Agnes' Academy in Rockville Centre with high honors and is aiming her sights at being an l.nglish major at Newton. The college is already familiar with her dramatic tal- ent after seeing her as Gabriel in "Grab and Grace", and will later, so the experts say, see her doing Newton justice on the basketball court. Representing local talent is Joanne Stuart as vice-president. Joanne was graduated last year from Newton Academy in Freeport, Long Island, and Fame as a hockey star has already been hers in the interclass games, when her vigor confounded many an upper class- man. Despite her musical interests, she is also contemplating an English major. Martha Miele, another ...

Hungarian Student Speaks Here; NSA Sponsors Drive for Relief [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1956

Hungarian Student Speaks Here; NSA Sponsors Drive for Relief On November 13th, the New York TIMES carried a picture of Istvan Lazslo, a Hungarian student who had come to this country to appeal to the U. N. for help for the revolutionists. That afternoon he spoke (still under his assumed name but without his mask) to a Newton audience in the Assembly Hall. Margit Serenyi '59 acted as interpreter. Istvan, a short, dark, sad-looking young man of twenty-one, is a student at a university in Sopron in Northwestern Hungary and led a large number of students in the revolutionary action. He stressed that the uprising was completely unplanned; groups had gathered to make peaceful protests against certain abuses in the government. When the crowd saw a girl slaughtered for an attempt to make a protest over the radio, they stormed the building of the secret police. The police fired and the crowd armed themselves. The movement spread from Budapest throughout Hungary. Istvan went two weeks without...

MacBeth and Romeo and Juliet Mark Old Vic's Boston Debut [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1956

MacBeth and Romeo and Juliet Mark Old Vic's Boston Debut By Ann Clausmeyer A much anticipated event, highlighting the Boston theatre season, will be the appearance of the Old Vic Company of London at the Opera House, starting January 14th. Theatre-going Bostonians in general and Shakespearean scholars in particular will be interested in the troupe. The Old Vic Company is making its second tour of our country, its first in a decade. This will be the group's initial visit to Boston. The history of this famous Shakespearean company is closely allied with that of the Old Vic Theatre of London, from which it derived its origin and its name. The Victoria Theatre, named in honor of Queen Victoria, enjoyed intermittent success after its founding in 1818, but it was not until 1914 that the Old Vic, as it was then more familiarly known, became established primarily as a center of Shakespearean drama. Under Lilian Baylis, the manager at the time, and one of the outstanding women of the English...

NSA Offers Effective Program To Help Campus Organizations [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1956

NSA Offers Effective Program To Help Campus Organizations Norman Vincent Peale offers the "power of positive thinking" as a universal panacea. Perhaps he is over optimistic. His thesis is, nevertheless, applicable to the realm of student associations. Stagnation within campus organizations is usually preceded by "destructive criticisms." One way of averting both is by active participation in NSA as a channel of constructive criticism on the part of a college. Viewed as a working unit, NSA is neither indefinite nor theoretical. Its programs are designed to produce real improvements in various areas of student life. Mary Lacey Kelly, Sue Sughrue and Pat Sweeney attended an NSAsponsored conference at Mount liolyoke College the weekend of November 9th. The topic: Student Government. The conference bore witness to the pragmatic value of NSA. The subjects discussed were "the Value of a Leadership Training Program", ''Motivations and Responsibilities of Student Leaders," and '"Areas of Stu...
