Curriculum Rearranged; More Electives Allowed An attempt has been made to lighten the sehedule by reducing the History survey and Great Books courses to one year, by dropping out minors, by putting the prescribed science into the Freshman year, and by reducing Patristic Latin to one term.

Not Even Caesar [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1953

Not Even Caesar Few roommates will admit that they are a problem. Therefore no primary sources can be tapped for a statistical survey. It is rash to say that all roommates are problems. Some are; some are not; and no roommate situation need be unbearable. The season for choosing next year's roommates is approaching. To prevent problematical situations is easier than to solve them. A discreet investigation of prospective roommates is in order before any choice is made. Late-partying types should avoid the early-to-bed variety. It is folly for a Beethoven and Bach enthusiast to room with a lover of popular tunes. The calmest student will panic at exam time under the daily influence of the frenzied type. Many of the minor difficulties which may become major clashes can be avoided by this selective process. But sometimes there is no escaping an unfortunate combination. "Two heads are better than one." So goes the old saying. But when the number of heads in a room goes up to four or five...

First-Nighting [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1953

First-Nighting There's no excuse this Spring for a blank social calendar. Nor in many cases is there need to move beyond our own forty acres to have a full one. A wide variety of local events should appeal to at least one facet in every Newtonite's personality. For the civic-spirited, there's the NFCCS Congress and the New England All College Conference; for those who like song for the sake of singing, the CQC. Shakespearean scholars will circle in red the Dramatic Club's production of Much Ado About Nothing, and for the politically minded IRC is sponsoring a Forum. The still young at heart can recapture their cotton-candv days at the Country Carnival, tor more classically inclined music lovers, the Glee ClubOrchestra Concert with Holy Cross will head the list, and all party-goers will meet on the dance-floor at the Spring Formal. These events are the results of many months' efforts by campus clubs and committees. Preparation is lots of tun. But appreciation is half the fun. Each gr...

Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1953

Lighter Side Grace Conley, reading the "want ads" for positions open to college graduates without shorthand and typing experience, found they could work with emotionally disturbed boys in the backwoods of Pennsylvania.—Not too encouraging for an English major, Grace thought. Dr. Sih, recent Chinese lecturer, to illustrate his difficulties with English pronunciation, told of his experience with a University of Florida coed. To make conversation as she escorted him about the campus, Dr. Sih asked, "Do you have a hobby?" "No," she replied to the innocent query, "I'm single." Peggy Knapp and friend recently gave a unique excuse for being late for class, as they petitioned Mother Keyes for a dean's cut. "We were in a pet shop looking for an inexpensive bird for the Beacon Hill Bird Watchers' Society, when I discovered a monkey," explained Peggy, in all seriousness, to the dean. "I partially opened the cage to make the monkey react," she continued, "and he jumped all over me and around th...

Around Campus: Dramatics in Slow Motion [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1953

Around Campus: Dramatics in Slow Motion "If you want a real, honest-to-good-ness education," a Senior oncc advised a Freshman, "join the Dramatic Club." That advice holds good at Newton. The Club is a small one —twenty-two full and three part-time members. And no Drones need apply. But everything runs on wheels —usually. There's no noticeable shouting about it. The only clue to what's going on is the pastel half-sheet on the bulletin board (watch it change on Sundays) with its eight to ten hour schedule ol rehearsals. No, no one ever practises that long, but soin<one is always in action. It wouldn't be accurate to say that the sun never sets on the Club's activity: but there have been a few moments when, like St. Paul's companions in that storm on the way to Rome, they "cast tour anchors Irom the stern and iell to wishing it were day." Where do they operate?—in the Stuart green classroom and Barat *4, where you can find them almost any time pretending the doorknob is a ma...

Bird Watchers Make Sensation At St. Patrick's Day Party [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1953

Bird Watchers Make Sensation At St. Patrick's Day Party On the evening of St. Patrick's Day a group of faculty and students, under the sponsorship of the Freshman Class, converted Newton's lounge into a hit of Old Erin with a holiday entertainment for the administration, faculty, and student body. "Irish-Jiggers" Jane Slade, Cathy Brennan, Sheila Murphy, and Aileen Mannix, opened the program, dressed as colleens. Leaving Killarney for awhile, Miss Elizabeth Wheelwright, Instructor of Art at Newton, representing the Beacon Hill Bird Watchers' Society, was sometimes barely audible above the screams of hilarity, as she demonstrated the correct approach for bird watchers, with an original monologue to accompany her act. Adding to the effect was 1 )onna Haider, a novice in the art of bird calling, who eagerly il not skillfLilly imitated her instructor. Two Newtones, Ellie Reardon and Joan Costello, joined in a version ol Nobody Knows What Happened to McCarthy and It Must Have Been the Ir...
