The Old Order Changes [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 May 1958

The Old Order Changes As of next year, Hardey House will no longer be used as a student dormitory. It will be reserved as a residence for members of the staff who this year have been living in the other houses on campus. All the floors in the East and West wings of Duchesne, as well as the rooms in Cushing, Barat and Stuart will be used by resident students. Almost sinca the beginning of the college, Hardey has been a favorite choice of Newton students. It has always been known for its exceptionally friendly atmosphere. The small size of the house has appealed to many, and each year there has been a long waiting list for the Hardey rooms. Few who have lived there ever want to move to another dormitory. Hardey was originally the residence of Gardner Colby, the railway magnate and philanthropist who, beginning as a factory boy in Maine, later made a fortune in the China trade and built hundreds of railways in the Middle West. Mr. Colby founded Colby College in Maine. His estate former...

Reverend Mother de Valon Elected Superior General [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 May 1958

Reverend Mother de Valon Elected Superior General Reverend Mother Sabine de Valon has been elected Superior General of the Religious of the Sacred Heart. Reverend Mother de Valon will replace Reverend Mother Marie Therese de Lescure, who died on December 31 of last year. Appointed as Reverend Mother de Lescure's Vicar General and Private Secretary on August 22 of last year, the new Superior General governed the Society during the interim between her predecessor's death and her own election on April 26th. Local religious Superiors of the Society from all over the world took part in the election. Of the four American Superiors present, Reverend Mother Agnes Barry of Washington, D.C., represented the Boston houses of the Society as well as houses in Providence and Philadelphia. Reverend Mother de Valon, who was born in 1899 in France, entered the Society there in 1920. She taught in academies in Marseilles and Toulouse, and in 1934 was placed in charge of the academy in the latter hous...

Kacy Conway Elected to Head Social Committee [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 May 1958

Kacy Conway Elected to Head Social Committee Kacy Conway was elected Chairman of Social Committee on March 28 by a new method designed to be more democratic and to emphasize the importance of Social Committee to the school. Previous chairmen had been elected by the Social Committee itself, but this year the Student Council and Social Committee decided that because each member of the student body is to some degree influenced by Social Committee, so too, each member should have a share in electing the student to head it. Since the student body and administration were in accord with this proposal, the necessary steps were taken to make the procedure constitutional. The election protocol is now comparable to that for Student Government President. The Junior Class chose six nominees, Dottie Bohen, Kacy Conway, Alice Cooke, Jane Gillespie, Lilyann Mitchell, and Barbara Johnson, who gave speeches on their views of the function of Social Committee. The student body then voted by weighted ba...

The Fault, Dear Brutus [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 May 1958

The Fault, Dear Brutus A few Sundays ago "Omnibus" had Erich Fromra and Lionel Trilling among its panelists. Trilling, a professor of English at Columbia University and an eminent literary critic, was the only non-psychologist present. He contended that we had become overly conscious of our abnormalities and too eager to be completely "adjusted." Mr. Trilling was perhaps extreme in saying that the neurotic is the indispensable author and subject of great art. As Fromm said, the neurotic is the most stereotyped individual. In a sense he is too predictable to be grist for the writer's mill. Yet Mr. Trilling was on solid ground when he indicated that the influence of psychology on literature has not been competely healthy. The man who is determined by his environment, his biological make-up or his domestic situation, makes tedious reading when dispensed in large, frequent doses. Refreshingly, the program presented an instance where the good people were fighting the good people. Mr. Fro...

The Flight From Determinism [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 May 1958

The Flight From Determinism "Six American student and youth editors will fly to Russia on April 20th as the first group to participate in the exchange of persons program established between this country and the USSR earlier this year under the Lacy-Zaroubin agreement." We might file this information in the "hope springs eternal" drawer since hope is traditionally the special province of youth. An exchange program like this one could be a fruitful way of establishing personal contact between Russian and American students. The small number of students involved and the short duration of their stay in Russia limit the plan's usefulness and accentuate the dangers inherent in it. As "Rob Hope commented after his return from Moscow, in Russia you can go anywhere they'll let you go. In such a short time and with such babes in the political wood, not much wool would be required to cover six pairs of eyes. At least a program like this one is easier to execute than a top level diplomatic confe...

Letter to Editor [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 May 1958

Letter to Editor Dear Editor, I heartily agree with the "busy Junior" who wrote about the many wasted hours that are an unnecessary part of our school day. Wouldn't it be possible to start classes earlier, i.e. at 8:30, cut out the morning meeting, and have four morning classes? They could end at 12:20 (lunch having started at 12:00) and then there would be an hour and twenty minutes for lunch and a meeting. Many girls won't have afternoon classes and those who do will be finished an hour earlier. I know that there are many who value their late morning sleep, but perhaps the required courses could be scheduled for the second period and electives chosen accordingly. I think a half-hour less morning sleep is well worth the gain in convenience. Signed, Joan Coniglio

Opera Notes [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 May 1958

Opera Notes This year has marked the twenty-fourth season Boston has played host to the New York Metropolitan Opera. Within the week of April 14-20 the program included: Engene Onegin, Aida, Der Rosenkavalier, Don Giovanni, Otello, Faust, Madame Butterfly and II Barbiero De Siviglia. The old Opera House, after being declared unsafe, is presently being demolished. The Boston Opera Association has rented for this season the Metropolitan Theatre on Tremont Street. The stage is small, but the staging was managed quite well. Don Giovanni suffered most with a valiant attempt to improvise a gold-colored draw curtain that was more a hindrance than a help. A new opera house is to be included in tlie civic center Boston plans to complete in the mid-1960'5. Three new productions were offered this season: Eugene Onegin, staged by Brook, with sets by Gerard, and a cast including Amara, Elias, I ucker, London and Tozzi. Don Giovanni was also given a new production, starring Steber, Amara, London,...

The Lighter Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 May 1958

The Lighter Side What we need around Newton to halt our private spring fever recession from serious studying are the wiles of the hidden persuaders. If they can sell the masses fins for their cars, filters for their cigarettes and rock and roll for their amusement surely they could sell scholarship at Newton. Catchy slogans like "Do your comprehensive studying early to look years younger and to avoid that overtired feeling," and "If tranquillizers don't have it the library has," would be sure fire motivators. And Shakespeare would not need too much glamorizing to make a stronger appeal to the students. The bard is distinguished looking, certainly a formidable rival to Commander Whitehead of Schweppes fame. He is a ready made symbol for giving his products personality identification. The possibility of exploiting color to advantage has been all but overlooked by educators. Give the "Nichomachean Ethics" a yellow jacket and it would not be long before it had skyrocked to the top of th...

Class Presidents Elected [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 May 1958

Class Presidents Elected Background, versitility, and charm make Patti Curran a natural choice to head the Class of 1959 next year. Patti, a native of Westchester, began her practical experience in Student Government at the Convent of the Sacred Heart, Ninetyfirst Street, New York, where she was Sophomore Class President and highest blue ribbon. Here at Newton she demonstrated her capabilities as class secretary Freshman and Junior years, and as class president Sophomore year. Versatility is one of Patti's key qualities. An English major, she finds time to go on skiing trips and play tennis, yet manages to make Dean's List. Martha Miele, whose middle name should be organization, will again head the Class of 1960. A resident of Freeport, Long Island, Martha attended Sacred Heart Academy in Hempstead where she held the offices of Freshman President and Sophomore and Senior Vice President. An able leader, Martha was elected Freshman secretary and Sophomore President at Newton. Martha's...

Interest in Biology Proves Contagious [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 May 1958

Interest in Biology Proves Contagious Newton's Biology Majors are outcasts by their own choice. They have detached themselves academically, at least —from the group and gone half way across campus to spend the day peering into microscopes and whatever else they come in contact with that has "insides" into which they may peer. Under the careful direction of Mother Cunningham and Mrs. Frawley, Assistant Professor of Biology, the upperclassmen of Newton's Science Departments have been allowed much freedom in their own experimentation. Their own adventures have led them to investigate everything from mudpuppies and humans to psedomonadaceae (soil bacteria) and mycobacterium tuberculosis (T. 8.). Their enthusiasm for discussing their finds has ruined many a philosopher's or historian's dinner. Recently, however, there has been such a stir in this self-isolated department, that a few of the less squeamish of the non-Biological have gone over the hill to investigate for themselves. On one ...

BOSTON AND THE CHANGING TIMES [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 May 1958

BOSTON AND THE CHANGING TIMES Do you ev3r look at the notices on the right hand end of the second floor bulletin board? They invite Newton students to the cultural activities around the Athens of America (Boston). One of these recently seemed particularly helpful for finding out more about the city we spend four years with. A series of lectures given at the Museum of Fine Arts, it had the pretentious title of "Supra Montem Posita: The Topographical Evolution of Boston over Three Centuries." Among the sections of the changing landscape under scrutiny were "The Shawmut Peninsula" and"The Development of Beacon Hill." The piece de resistance in the series was "The Flight from the South End." Doctor Walter Muir Whitehill, director and librarian of the hallowed Boston Athenaeum, (membership in the Athenaeum is said to be one of the three prerequisites of a Proper Bostonian) gave all the lectures. To add the visual dimension to his talk he showed a few stereoptican slides. The real genesis...
