Mission Day Big Success [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1957

Mission Day Big Success The great present need for apostolic activity was again brought to the attention of the student body through the Mission Day program on Tuesday, December 10. Interest was speedily stimulated by two speakers. Patricia Blanchard, a member of the class of '57 and the first Newton graduate to work as a lay missionary in a foreign country, spoke about Jamaica.Enthusiastically Pat told of her work as a catechist, and included some of her more unusual experiences in this mission country. Two Maryknoll priests came to Newton for Mission Day; evening Mass was celebrated by the Reverend Walter J. Maxcy, M.M, and Reverend Michael Pierce, M.M., related some of his experience in the mission field. Father Pierce has spent some years working with the natives in Africa and expects to return to that continent in January. This talk was followed by a film on the missions narrated by Perry Como. The college supported the program not only through their attendance and interest, bu...

First CCD Meeting Held; Student Interest Urged [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1957

First CCD Meeting Held; Student Interest Urged In an effort to stimulate among students interested in the work of the Confraternity of Chritian Doctrine (CCD), the Newton units of the NFCCS and Catholic Action sponsored an informal meeting here on December 3rd. Although the organization is a major unit on nearly every other Catholic college campus, it was pointed out that CCD is virtually unknown at Newton. In a short talk, Sister Marie Charles, of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart, head of the Lay Teachers' Course in the Boston Archdiocese, explained the purposes of the organization. It is the expressed wish of the Holy Father, she said, that lay people help with the instruction of those who have not had a Catholic education, especially children in public schools. Sister Marie Charles said that sixty percent of Catholic grammar school children in this country and as many as eighty percent of the high school children are receiving very little religious instruction. There ar...

Christmas Every Day [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1957

Christmas Every Day At no other time of the year is happiness so tangible a thing as it is at Christmas. Suddenly, separated qualities, like warmth and crispness, are one. We have some free time to stop for a while, and to pull together the separated ends of our own lives, and to take in the brightness and color of life around us. We are strangely moved at Christmas by things which we tend to overlook in the rush of studies and activities. We are alive to the irresistible warmth of tradition: eggnog parties and the exchanging of gifts. It is an easy thing to be happy at Christmas. Happiness envelopes everyone and everything. It might be well once or twice to think about the "why" of this joy of ours, of some way to make it live longer than Christmastime. Perhaps we are so keenly aware of life at Christmas because the Son of God has come and made all things new; living things shine "in the light of the Godhead from which they draw their being." This is what draws us to them, what mak...

Blueprint for Success [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1957

Blueprint for Success There comes a time in every semester when everyone has too much to do. A short visit to the smoker will bear this out because someone is always telling someone else that "I have too much to do." Professors begin to look like word-eating monsters whom no amount of labored term papers and weekly quizzes will fill. In the past the production rate of some has lagged so that eventually extreme measures had to be taken —a week-end cancelled or a Friday night date broken. The panacea for the harried student is supposed to be a schedule. A schedule should allow time for class, study, sleep, meals and relaxation, aiming at the Greek ideal of "a sound mind in a sound body." And wouldn't we be good stoics, then, and noble pagans! The trouble is that we are meant to be good Christians, and unless Christ receives a healthy portion of our time it is hard to see how we can be. In this matter of putting first things first, an excellent daily schedule would include Mass, a visi...

The Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1957

The Lighter Side Curiously, the discovery of some Middle English manuscripts on the Newton campus has coincided with a course in Fourteenth Century English that is being offered this year. An excerpt follows. Scholarly research has excluded the possibility that these lines could have been composed by the Scottish Chaucerians. For the time being, the discoverer of the manuscripts prefers that the unknown scriveners be referred to as the Newton Chaucerians. The practiced ear may well discern echoes of the Anglo-Saxon saga, (attributed to Folewulf, Cynewulf's brother-in-law) which was uncovered in Barat House last year. A Malediction on the Eve of an Examinacioun The night so short, the bok so long to lerne — O mislyved time that finds me troutheless, O wikked time, alwey that slit so yerne!

Front Row Center [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1957

Front Row Center Boston played host last month to Jean Anouilh's "Time Remembered," a romantic comedy apparently destined for a long run on Broadway. Though very entertaining, the whimsical piece occasionally fell somewhat below the efforts of its stellar cast, headed by Helen Hayes, Richard Burton and Susan Strasberg. The plot revolves around the sly old Duchess of Pont-au-Bronc's attempts to divert her handsome nephew's attentions from a dream to a pert young milliner. Three years before the play's time span, the young man had fallen in love with an exotic dancer, accidentally killed a few days after their meeting. Obsessed by her memory, he has withdrawn into a fairy-land world of his own, peopled with associations and built on the places they visited. Naturally, the untutored but charming career girl, lured into the midst of this madness by the Duchess, proves a most substantial bait for the susceptible young nobleman. The three are whirled through a succession of very funny sit...

Three Campus Officers In the Spotlight [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1957

Three Campus Officers In the Spotlight Background, practical theatre ability and talent make Dotty Bohen a natural for President of Newton Dramatic Club. This youngest of five children comes from a talented and active family. Dotty's mother plays character roles for charity groups. Her sister Eileen took part in high school plays, while her brother Tom designed costumes and sets at C.U. He is currently a script agent for television. One of Dotty's brothers-in-law is films sales manager for N.B.C. in New York, and the other is introducing commercial television for Columbia in London. Besides an uncle playwright, Dotty's mother once wrote a play about her family. When asked what her father does, Dotty replies: "He tries hard to manage the Bohen Brood. You might call him our stage manager." Experience is another asset of Dotty's. She was stage manager at St. Mary's High School, Manhasset, L.1., and at Newton for one year. Roles the twenty year old thespian has held range from ingenues ...

MRS. WEBSTER'S HOBBY: BOOKS! [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1957

MRS. WEBSTER'S HOBBY: BOOKS! Prom behind a compendious stack of well-worn volumes, I heard a murmured, "Well, I don't really collect books; it's just that I rarely refuse a fascinating one." This smiling affirmation came from Mrs. Kenneth G. T. Webster, specialist in medieval English literature and new member of the English faculty at Newton College. Interviewed last week at the college, the affable lecturer epitomized the enthusiasm of the collector and the imprecision about "insignificant details" frequent in a scholar. She overflowed with anecdotes regarding _ier revered collection of valuable old texts, but shrugged off reportorial queries about "the oldest, the most valuable, date and place of first purchase, and size of collection," with a smile. It was obvious that value had no monetary associations in her mind; it was on the yellowed pages and what they told her of men—their lives and their delight in language. Perhaps it is easier for Mrs. Webser to share this pleasure in w...

DR. PETERSEN DISCUSSES JAMAICA [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1957

DR. PETERSEN DISCUSSES JAMAICA In Jamaica orchids grow wild and fruit has a special savor. Montego Bay and Kingston attract tourists all year round who are willing to pay upwards of $45 a day for luxury living and tropical vistas. Few who travel to the island ever see or care to see the poverty that is much more characteristic of this British Protectorate. Dr. Freddie Petersen, one of the few, gave up a practice in plastic surgery to serve God's poor there, in thanksgiving for the gift of faith. Cockburn Pen, the district where Dr. Petersen worked, is one of the worst spots on the island. The lawless have gravitated there, and many ex-convicts form part of the population. The people are very superstitious. "They are dominated by a religious sect called the Rastifari," Dr. Petersen explained, "who believe that Haile Selassie is God. The misery and poverty of the living conditions are beyond belief. They live in such tumbledown shacks that I hesitate to call them houses." Subsistence ...

BOTOLPH GROUP SHOWS CURRENT CHRISTMAS ART [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 December 1957

BOTOLPH GROUP SHOWS CURRENT CHRISTMAS ART Boston at Christmas is exciting. One place that lives this excitement of the season is the Botolph Center for Contemporary Religious Art. The sponsoring Botolph Group, through exhibits of good religious art, such as their current Christmas diplay, works to show that reigious art is not dead, but like the Church that it serves, very much alive, growing and flourishing. Like the displays of painting, sculpture, vestments and architecture throughout the year, the Christmas exhibit brings the best current religious art available to the attention of people who are looking for it. For Christmas this year the Center shows creches of wood, of lead, and of ceramics, tiny or large, with three figures or fifty, (fifty including a dovecote), dyptyches of the Adoration, the kings with worshipful Picasso-like eyes. There are tree ornaments like the delicate German wreath haloing a miniature pink-gowned Madonna and Child. The Christmas cards are by local a...
