Museum Notes [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1958

Museum Notes "885" has decided to bypass the theater for this issue, and concentrate on the plastic arts for a change. Boston is full of museums, and they're always here; they won't move on to New York before you get a chance to see them. If you have not visited them since you have been at Newton, here is a little of what you may expect. The Museum of Fine Arts, designed by architect Guy Lowell, has frescoes in the main halls by Boston's John Singer Sargent. Its outside trademarks are the praying Indian warrior statue on the Huntington Avenue side and the opposite facade of Corinthian columns. Inside it is a treasure house of beauty from every era. The Museum has an extensive collection of Etruscan wtres, Chinese jades, Egyptian jewelry and furniture, and of course hundreds of paintings. These include two rare full-length portraits by Rembrandt and one of the largest Millet collections anywhere in the world; "The Angelus," "The Sowers," "The Harvest" and others. Our own country's ea...

Our Historical Authority: Frederick S. Ormond [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1958

Our Historical Authority: Frederick S. Ormond "No, this place has not changed much," said Frederick S. Ormond, Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds here at Newton. "It's just not quite the private estate it used to be. But in some ways I think these people have made it more beautiful." And Frederick, as he is known to the college, should know. He was here before the college. family. Mr. Schrafft died in 1928, and Mrs. Schrafft remained here until 1940 and brought up her family of three daughters and one son. "I came here in 1936," Frederick said, "and I remember that the house then was shielded from the noise of the street by a row of evergreens planted just in front of the stone balustrade." The far parking lot was a putting green and a play- ground, while the land on which Stuart House stands was an oak grove with rhododendrons and azaleas. A tall hedge separated HardyHouse from the Schrafft estate. "They had a beautiful garage here," he said, meaning St. Mary's, "that held sev...

Our New Scientific Authority [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1958

Our New Scientific Authority Dr. Renee Naves became Associate Professor of Chemistry at Newton at the beginning- of the second semester. Dr. Naves is a native of France, but she was brought up and educated in Switzerland, where she lived until two years ago. The courses she teaches are physical chemistry and quantitative analysis. The former is a lecture, the latter a laboratory course. Physical chemistry is a laboratory science, but the necessary equipment is so vast that the subject is at most colleges taught in a lecture course, Dr. Naves explains. In quantitative analysis, only the basic principles are covercd in lectures. The students spend most of their time applying these principles, using a long glass birette, reagents, and a chemical indicator to find out such things as the percentage of one of the components in a substance. Dr. Naves has a background of both chemistry and biochemistry. She has the European equivalent of a master's degree from the University of Geneva, and ...

RIGHT REASON STILL THE NORM [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1958

RIGHT REASON STILL THE NORM The spirit of the Middle Ages reigned in the Assembly Hall on March 6th, as three Dominican brothers from the House of Studies in Dover conducted a disputation on the thesis, "The Proximate Norm of Morality is Right Reason." Brother Cambell, a Harvard graduate and moderator of this presentation, explained the historical background of the scholastic disputation. The disputation is not a dispute, but a social argument based on objective reasoning between two persons, an objector and a defender, in order to reveal the truth. Besides being used as one of the methods of teaching in the universities of St. Thomas' time, public disputations were regularly held between the Masters in one of the squares of the town, and attracted large crowds. Two Masters would present and defend their theses and then would be open to objections from the general public. The scholastic disputation, so popular during the Medieval Period, has been long discontinued until now only the...

The Man with the Camera: Ralph Norman [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1958

The Man with the Camera: Ralph Norman When a picture of a long-eared, sad-eyed Bassett hound, supporting a caption announcing Mr. Ralph Norman's arrival, appeared on the twenty-four hour bulletin board several weeks ago, only a few understood its significance. It is easily explained. Mr. Norman's dog, Cholmondeley (pronounced Chumley) is of the Bassett hound variety, and the notice was intended for Mr. Norman's amusement. It served its purpose and also brought to "885's" attention that, although Mr. Norman has been at Newton and Newton's functions longer than most of us, surprisingly little is known about him. Mr. Norman, the man with the camera, has been the official photographer for Brandeis University since 1948. Several years ago, when Newton needed some pictures taken for a publicity folder, Mother Maguire called Brandeis to see if they had any student photographers who might help us out. They had, but Mr. Norman generously offered to come himself. The upshot of this initial pr...

Biblical Scholar Addresses College [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1958

Biblical Scholar Addresses College "Archaeology provides the background for study of the Bible," Rt. Reverend Matthew P. Stapleton, vice-rector of St. John's Seminary, Brighton, told students at Newton on Thursday, March 13th. For the second of his semi-annual lectures to the student body at Newton, Monsignor Stapleton talked about the relation between archaeology and the Bible. After pointing out the interest aroused by the Dead Sea Scrolls, he listed some of the practical steps involved in getting ready for an expedition and in choosing a digging site. He then described how the archaeologists go about their work once they have chosen a site, and how the results of their efforts are connected with Biblical scholarship.

Music Majors Entertain At Separate Recitals [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1958

Music Majors Entertain At Separate Recitals Newton music students have recently provided the college with two musical evenings. On Wednesday evening, March nineteenth, at 8 p.m., in Badenhausen hall, Miss Kate McCann gave a concert in partial fulfillment of the requirements for her B. A in music. Kate began studying voice when she was in the eighth grade. For two years she studied with Madame Marie Sundelius at the New England Conservatory of Music. During the 195556 school year which she spent abroad, she studied theory, voice, and piano at the Santa Cecelia Conservatory and University of Rome. At present she is studying with Mrs. Maria Balling of Newton's faculty. Kate's program consisted of four parts. She opened with oratorios and selections from masses by Mozart, Verdi, and Brahms.

The recital concluded with the singing of operatic...

TOWARD BETTER CATHOLIC ART [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1958

TOWARD BETTER CATHOLIC ART The New England Region of the Catholic Art Association held a meeting for college art teachers to discuss their aims and problems, Saturday, February 22nd, in the main lounge of Duchesne house. Art teachers from New England Catholic Colleges, seminaries and novitiates exchanged ideas with the Association leaders and New England artists on how they could help restore among Catholics a true understanding and a good practice of the arts. Reverend William Leonard, S.J., who gives Newton's monthly Holy Hour before First Fridays, was moderator. The Catholic Art Association, organized in 1937, aims to renew the Christian spirit in all the arts, both those that provide for the necessities of every day life and those that are specifically ecclesiastical. Membership is open to Catholics and non-Catholics alike, who are interested in the Association's aim. In November 1953, the CAA held its national convention at Newton, and a New England regional meeting took place ...

Work at Children's Ward Fun! [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1958

Work at Children's Ward Fun! One of the main activities of Catholic Action is the volunteer work done by its members in hospitals and institutions in the Boston area. Perhaps the most popular work and most enjoyed by those who participate in it is the visiting of the children's ward at St. Elizabeth's. Beth Duffy, president of the club, testifies that "it's not a bit like work." The duties are to act as part nurse's aide, clown, card shark and storyteller. Newton girls find they can adapt themselves readily to each new role without much ado. After being supplied with a white cover-all and some information as to the age and condition of the children, the volunteers move through the rooms in an effort to provide these young patients with an opportunity to talk or play with someone who has nothing else to do. Some of the children are quite capable of amusing themselves and prefer to be left alone; others are too sick to be disturbed. But many are recovering from the usual childhood ope...

NFCCS Sponsors Original Plays At Drama Festival [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1958

NFCCS Sponsors Original Plays At Drama Festival In the second annual drama festival, sponsored by the Literary Commission of the NFCCS, two one act plays, "Don't Feed the Pigeons" and"The Beginning", written by students at Boston College and Albertus Magnus were performed at Newton on Sunday afternoon, March 23rd. After the performances the Reverend Robert A. Morris, O.P. discussed the merits of the plays at an informal coffee hour in the Duchesne lounge. Father Morris, director of the Pyramid Players at Providence College and formerly with the Blackfriars Theatre in New York City, pointed out the difficulties of writing an "intellectual exercise" type of play. Without sharp dialogue this kind of play tends to become merely a conversation piece. If the characters are too abstract they are neither credible nor convincing. Father Morris also dicussed the problem of character revelation. This, he said, must come from the action and dialogue of the character instead of from mere descrip...

Letter to the Editor [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 April 1958

Letter to the Editor The scheduling of classes is an admittedly difficult and tedious job in any college. Here at Newton we have classes that stretch from nine to six. And so the day is spent in attending classes, the evenings in attending clubs, and the weekends are spent in madly trying to catch up with the work we could not possibly have done before, or in running away from anything that even looks like a book. With this arrangement much of what we are in college for is missed. Many outside interests are discouraged or made impossible by sheer lack of time. So many hours are required in so many fields and the schedule is so tight, that without more time for outside research, only superficial knowledge is possible. Could there be more time to think, to read, to broaden one's self by oneself? We think there could. If classes were to be scheduled from 8:30 to 1:30, excluding labs, we would then have that unbelievable entity—a free afternoon. Does anyone agree with us on this? (Signe...
