Time [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1958

Time All of us at Newton are liere in pursuit of what is called a "liberal" education. Its end is a human mind which lias freed itself hy knowledge and discipline from ignorance, half-truths and prejudice. It is a mind armed for the splendor of truth, and for the difficult search for llie answer to the question: "How should human beings live?" For a Christian, such a question may seem already well answered. In the Greek world, in which the ideal of a liberal education was horn, it was the great imponderable. Above the uncertainty, the value of the education remained. It was based on a belief that Man was the noblest heing in the cosmos. The Greek hero was so convinced of his own intrinsic worth that he died rather than flex that standard for anyone or anything. He was always running after ultiinates—and contrary to the opinion that each human being has his own special talent, the Greek taught himself to he good in all things. For us, then, the pursuit of perfection should he no pipe...

And the Timeless [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1958

And the Timeless Time, Father Lynch told us last June, is a planned movement into eternity. We take part in this march of life whenever, with growing spontaneity and cheerfulness, we give up the past and, the present. On Mondday sixty-two seniors stood together in Badenhausen Assembly Hall to share for the last time a common experience. Most of them were ending sixteen years of formal education. All of them were about to give up, to leave behind, the world they created together at Newton. Commencements, we are always told, are beginnings. They are ends too. Newton's ninth commencement, like all her others, celebrated the end of an era, the beginning of a new mode of living. And so commencement is an end and a beginning. We like to talk about commencement as a beginning, to talk about it as if students were on the threshold of life, just about to step through a door opened each year to let a few of them at a time filter out, degree in hand, to prove they are ready to take on the busi...

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

The Lighter Side We know that college girls are avid readers of fashion magazines. The May issue of "Glamour" is designed to set every sweet young thing's nerves a-jangling over her proposed summer outings by pointing out the pitfalls of casual holidays. For the purpose "Glamour" tells the tales of Sue, Daintry (not particularly dainty until taken in hand by a friend who showed her that "there's more to summer glamour than tennis shorts"), Jane and Maria. Sue went away for two weeks with her husband (Elliott, of course, to Nantucket, of course). Things started out pretty well. (Four dollars per night—"Sue knew the place was right." Editor's note: We should say so!) But the first day on the beach they met "a friendly young couple"—Jessica and Bob Anderson —who lured them into going swimming, touring the Whaling Museum, bicycling out to Siasconset and back to the beach for a final dip. Fortunately, after dinner Elliott had the presence of mind to say: "Thanks a lot, but I think Sue an...

Front Row Center [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1958

Front Row Center "Lost in the Stars" has been revived by the New York Civic Center Opera Co. The preview performance was given the night of April 10th. Jose Quintero, who recently directed "The Iceman Cometh" in a most successful run at the Circle-in-the-Square Theatre off Broadway, staged the production. Mr. Quintero approached Alan Baton's novel thoughtfully. The powerful poetic quality of Maxwell Anderson's adaptation comes through effectively by means of the slow pace of the acting and in.the design of the sets, which were simple enough to allow for rapid shifting of place and imaginative enough to conjure, with the help of expert lighting, the precise atmosphere of each locale. Lawrence Winters captured the spirit of Stephen Kumalo. His quiet intensity and tine stage presence held the attention of the audience throughout his long performace. Louis Gosset gave an emotional characterization of Absalom. As a weak and frightened young man he was almost too convincing to justify the...

Newton Alumnae at Work Newspaper World: Lacey Kelly [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1958

Newton Alumnae at Work Newspaper World: Lacey Kelly This is the first of a series of features planned for "885" oil Newton graduates. This is a picture of me at the "city desk" of Canada's largest suburban weekly. It gives you some idea of what my job looks like from the outside, but nothing of the "inside story." The Monitor Publishing Company owns and operates a chain of independant weekly newspapers. They cover everything in their area from the latest get-together of the Fossils Club, to a hard-fought political "contradictory meeting", or the struggle of amateur theatre groups trying to establish themselves. Working with a skeleton staff, and no help from wire services, the papers get their information by phone, rewrites of daily newspaper coverage, and some good old fashioned reporting. Need for reporters ready to race out at a moment's notice is not urgent with only a weekly deadline to lntet. There is> time to cuileel facts from many sources, and then make of them w...

'57-'58 IN RETROSPECT [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1958

'57-'58 IN RETROSPECT Trunks in the tunnel mean one of two things: September or June. In September they are rather grim symbols of the ten tough months ahead. In June they are, for many, a prelude to summer jobs, to days of surf and sun, nights blissfully free of clicking typewriters, and delightfully full of chirping crickets, lightning-bugs and midnight swims. There are trunks in the tunnel now, and we are about to grab them and be off in much the same fashion that Huckleberry Finn must have left his white-washing to set out with his fishing pole. Before we take off after Huck, let's take just a moment to recapitulate . . . September, besides bringing the class of '61, brought us Duchesne —East and West with a date lounge in the middle, and Mrs. O'Connor as house-mother. In the basement of old Duchesne the stacks were bursting at the seams, when Mother Coleman, well versed in the ethics of "Slenderella-for-Stacks" rushed to their aid. All summer long she transferred volume upon vo...

Cartoons as Propaganda [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1958

Cartoons as Propaganda The month before graduation is a time when the Seniors can look back with relief because their comprehensives are over and their theses finished. One of the most unorthodox of the Senior theses this year was that written by Judy Carey on Political Cartoons. Judy used German and British cartoons of the years before World War II and showed the part they played as propaganda tools for the home front. She went through the "News in Review" section of all the old New York Times of this period. Though cartoons are difficult to compose, since they must consolidate the historical point of view, the economic situation and the daily happenings all in one picture, the British and Germans showed much skill in their drawings. Consequent- ly, these cartoons gave a deep insight into the nature of the period. Also, the exact reaction of the people to a political event can be seen if the cartoonist has been careful to express only the people's opinion. Judy used Winston Churchi...

Boston Pops [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1958

Boston Pops The Boston Pops, under the baton of Arthur Fiedler, has returned to Boston tor its seventy-third season. The Pops, or popular concerts in the European tradition, begin with the end of the Symphony season and continue on through the summer. Under the skillful leadership of Mr. Fiedler, Boston audiences are given an evening of light concert music, a few pieces of symphonic calibre, medleys from Broadway musicals, and other works in the vein of easy listening. The Pops, noted for their informal atmosphere, take place at Symphony Hall. The staid symphony patrons are gone. Instead, tables are set up in the orchestra; light snacks and drinks of all varieties are served. The pop of the champagne cork is a frequent sound, and some concert goers hold that the name Pops comes from those popping corks. Frequently, a performance is dedicated to some school or organization. Most of the colleges around Boston have their "Night at the Pops," with the school taking part in the program i...

Club Plans for Next Year [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1958

Club Plans for Next Year The Literary Club plans to sponsor a program of guest speakers for the 1958-1959 school year, incoming President Pat Sweeney has announced. Mr. William Alfred, Professor of English at Harvard University and judge of this year's NFCCS poetry contest, has already accepted an invitation to chair an afternoon discussion next fall. The club also hopes to ally itself for a literary symposium with the NFCCS Literary Commission which is centered at Newton. Faculty members and students from NFCCS colleges in the New England region would be invited to- attend. Arrangements would include brief informal talks by guest speakers, followed by a panel session and tea. This semester the club concentrated its efforts on contemporary poets. Club members studied what the style and imagery of Archibald MacLeish, Robert Penn Warren, Wallace Stevens and the august Robert Frost contribute to the meaning of their poetry, fn this case a degree of familiarity bred a proportionate amou...

International Politics Students Observe at the V.I.P. Meeting [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1958

International Politics Students Observe at the V.I.P. Meeting On Friday afternoon, May 2nd, Mr. Karl Von Vorys escorted three students of his International Politics class, Carmen Casellas, Patricia O'Neill, and Karen Conway, to a session of the New Hampshire Council on World Affairs. The program began with a panel discussion on "The Atom: What Role in Diplomacy and Military Strategy?" Lieutenant General Leslie R. Joves, the former head of the Manhattan Atomic Bomb Project, presided, while Professor Herbert Hill of Dartmouth College, Dr. Edward Katzenbach, Director of Defense Studies Program at Harvard, and Brigadier General T. R. Phillips, military editor for the St. Louis Post Dispatch, conducted a lively and challenging deßate. Positing the theory, "The atom should have no role in future policy", Professor Hill contended with Dr. Katzenbach, who felt that our policy should be oriented toward anticipation of new military tactics and strategy. After the conclusion of this session, M...

Catholic Action Sponsors Picnic [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1958

Catholic Action Sponsors Picnic On Saturday afternoon, May 10th, Newton's Catholic Action Club sponsored a picnic for the foreign student members of the Newman Clubs of Harvard Graduate School, M.I.T. and Boston University. At the picnic lunch in the orchard, Newton girls talked with the students from Canada, South Africa, Italy, China, the Philippines, South America, Cuba, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Prance and Hungary. After lunch, some of the guests played soccer in the hollow behind Barat, others played baseball, and Joanne O'Connor and Carmen Casellas showed some of the students the different buildings on the campus. Later in the afternoon, everyone gathered in the South Lounge to watch Hungarian folk dances. Olga Vails entertained the students with Cuban songs. Janet Chute and Jane Whitty, who have been members of the NFCCS-Newman Club-Foreign Students Council during the past year, arranged the activities for this picnic.

Trees Past and Present: From Spruce to Dogwood [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 June 1958

Trees Past and Present: From Spruce to Dogwood Stalwart sentinels of Newton's short past, eight blue spruce trees stand as the beginning of a tradition which has been varied slightly by the class of 1958. Tree planting ceremony was inaugurated by the class of 1950 (Newton's first graduating class) when they donated what is now the tallest spruce on the east side of Stuart. Every class thereafter followed suit, and can be duly traced — the older the class, the higher the tree. For those exacting people who would like to know which tree goes with which class, there are, deep in the bushy branches, small plaques whch give such details. In the past, trees have been planted behind and to the east of Stuart. This year, however, the class of '58 chose to plant a dogwood in front of Duchesne West. After the lunch on May 7th, the seniors and faculty gathered with the Sophomores for the formal planting. Tree planting is, perhaps, the most relaxed formal occasion on campus. It used to be custo...
