Joint Concert a Success In Symphony Hall Program [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1958

Joint Concert a Success In Symphony Hall Program On the night of November the 23rd, Newton College joined Em- . _ i..el and Boston College at Symphony Hall for its fall concert, under the direction of Mr. C. Alexander Peloquin who was recently appointed to the staff of the Gregorian School of Music. The program included excerpts from operas and operettas as well as sacred music written for the concert stage. The highlight of the Newton selections was Sowerby's "Benedietus Es, Domine," a simple and sustained work of praise. The sublime tone of the Symphony Hall organ complimented the choral singing. Newton also contributed delicate shading to the program in the Prayer from "Hansel and Gretel." They ended with a light touch, singing "Comes a Train of Little Ladies" from the "Mikado." The three clubs combined for another Gilbert and Sullivan number, the finale from"The Gondoliers," which was followed by the vigorous "Anvil Chorus" of Verdi. Their next selection was a motet composed by ...

Mr. Alfred Literary Club Guest At Discussion of Verse Ploy [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1958

Mr. Alfred Literary Club Guest At Discussion of Verse Ploy On Wednesday evening, November 12th, Mr. William Alfred, of the Harvard English department, Phi Beta Kappa poet there for this year, directed a Literary Club discussion on the verse play in Duchesne West Lounge. Mr. Alfred is a writer with special experience in this form. He has written Agamemnon, a modern adaptation of the Aeschylus tragedy, and most recently, Ilogan's Goat, which was staged at the Sanders' Theatre by the Poets Theatre group. Mr. Alfred gave a clear picture of what the writer of poetic drama is attempting. He denied that there is any specific subject matter to which the verse play is limited. His own Hogan's Goat bears his opinion out. On the surface it describes the politically corrupt conditions that prevailed in Brooklyn among the Irish in the 1890's, but more properly his play deals with sin in its causes and consequences and not with the surface problems of Irish immigrants. Any set of characters and c...

Madre Guevara Translates Life Of Janet Stuart [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1958

Madre Guevara Translates Life Of Janet Stuart A Spanish edition of The Life and Letters of Janet Erskine Stuart, by Maud Monahan, R.S.C.J., has recently been published in Mexico. Madre Maria Theresa Guevara of the Newton College faculty translated this book into the Spanish language. Mother Stuart was the sixth Superior General of the Society of the Sacred Heart, from 1911 to 1914. Through Mother Monahan's biography, published in 1922, many people have learned about the Society and it has attracted many vocations. This book, which draws largely on Mother Stuart's own letters and writings, has made Her even better known than she was during her lifetime. Madre Guevara's translation, the first in the Spanisn language, will give Spanish-speaking peoples their first opportunity to know the details of the life of the holy religious, whose cause of canonization it is hoped will begin in the not too distant future.

Newton's Cardinal [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1958

Newton's Cardinal Newton students, present and past, feel special joy in our Archbishop's elevation to the Cardinalate. It was at Cardinal Cushing's invitation that Newton College was founded in 1946, and, in the twelve years since then, his encouragement and active help have been a constant stimulus and support in the development of the college. It is to a father as well as to an ecclesiastical superior that the Newton students offer our delighted congratulations.

The Measure of Success [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1958

The Measure of Success Newton is just one member of the Sacred Heart family, which was brought to the United States in 1818 by Blessed Philippine Duchesne, the woman with the "heart of oak." Blessed Philippine's life was a series of delays, hardships, and disappointments. After years of parental objection, she was finally able to enter the Visitation convent, only to be forced to leave when the French Revolution closed convents. Later, her efforts to re-establish the house failed, and she entered the newly-founded Society of the Sacred Heart. The propelling desire in Blessed Philippine's life was to do missionary work among the American Indians. Yet it was not until she was seventy-two that God answered her prayer, and she was sent to teach the Potawatomies. Because she was unable to speak their language, she was recalled before long to St. Charles, Missouri. At the time of her death her life's work seemed a total failure. But Blessed Philippine has left the Children of the Sacred H...

Challenge and Response [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1958

Challenge and Response Arnold Toynbee describes the curve of the rise and fall of civilizations in terms of challenge and response. According to his theory, challenge per se does not cause the decline of a civilization, but when a nation fails to meet its challenges with adequate responses it seals its doom. This pattern is not confined to the process of history. It is repeated in all our lives. As a Catholic institution of learning Newton College is faced with the challenge of developing the minds of her students to the fullest. As students the response is ours to make. We are the ones who must choose between inertia and dynamism, a choice which involves a series of decisions that determine the character of our college career. We are all fallible, so it is fortunate that one instance of refusing to respond to a challenge does not spell our downfall. On the contrary, we are meant to profit by experience. If we have walked out on some challenges let us hope that in the future we will...

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

The Lighter Side (Thanks to a recent grant made to 885 by the "Foundation jor the Empiriological Classification of Campus Anima," the staff has undertaken an extensive research program to define and number the various species indigenous to Newton. The following is the first in a series of papers prepared in the interests of furthering this new science. All data has been compiled and collected at Newton.) The species Houndus Markus comes under the genus Grindus. Members of this species are easily recognized by their unwholesome affection for the letter A. It often supersedes and sometimes erases the desire for Veritas, so we must label it a peculiar perversion existing in the Houndus Markus. Overwhelming evidence points to the fact that the Houndus Markus is also a mailbox peekcr. Although he is crafty and fleet of foot we have observed him in the Post Office on many occasions, stealing sly glances at other people's tests. The more overt type of Houndus Markus is the first to ask, "W...

The Other Side [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1958

The Other Side 885 should probably carry banner headlines shouting DEAN CALLS STUDY FLOP or DEAN DOWNS STUDY. Since headline writers are restricted to words of five letters, they understandably sacrifice subtlety to brevity, but either of these headlines is really not very far from my meaning. Thomas Jefferson said : that government is best that governs least. I am ready to say: that student is best who studies least. If the terms of this proposition are well understood, I think that even those of you who are least addicted to the long week-end will agree with me about it. The word "study" has a great deal to teach a student. Cicero, when he said that he spoke sine studio et ira, meant that he had no ax to grind. As soon as you throw an ax into your mental processes, there is considerable damage. If you set high marks as your objective, you are wrong about the end; if you have an absolute, even though unexpressed, determination not to think, you are wrong about the means. Someone sa...

Mrs. O'Connor Prefers: People, Good English [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1958

Mrs. O'Connor Prefers: People, Good English Although we are all acquainted with Mrs. O'Connor, few of us know anything about her life before she came to Newton in 1957. Mrs. Lucille O'Connor was born and educated in Washington, D.C. She spent many vacations at Spring Lake, New Jersey, where her family had a summer home. While attending the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, Mrs. O'Connor became interested in the study of law and in the diplomatic service. Many of her former classmates hold top positions in diplomatic circles. She still corresponds with many of these old friends and enjoys visiting with them whenever it is possible. Mrs. O'Connor's interests include books, the theatre, bridge and music (not Rock 'n' Roll!). Asked if she has any pet peeves, Mrs. O'Connor replied: "I do have one pet peeve and that is bad English. I just can't bear It." At present, Mrs. O'Connor has a home in Kennebunkport, Maine. She finds cold weather invigorating and is partial to the beauty of a win...

NANCY MADDEN STARS ON SKATES [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1958

NANCY MADDEN STARS ON SKATES Nancy Madden (Newton '60) is the daughter of a naval officer. Until she was fifteen and a junior in high school, she led a typical Navy Junior's life. From 1948 till 1950 she lived on the Island of Guam. In 1950 the Maddens returned to Washington, D.C., and Nancy went to Stone Ridge for two years, but in '52 her father was assigned to a carrier in the Korean War. Nancy and her mother went to San Diego to live. After the war they moved to Mechanicsburg Navy Base in Hershey, Pennsylvania. It was here that her father decided that Nancy should have a hobby or something constructive to occupy her time. With this in mind he introduced her to the ballet, to opera, and to several other possibilities, among which was ice skating, and skating is what Nancy chose. She had seen the Ice Follies and her father knew the choreographer. Nancy began skating from two to three hours a day right through the winter, and when summer came she went to Cherbourg, Canada, to conti...

An Artist with a Broad Canvas [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1958

An Artist with a Broad Canvas An hour spent chatting with Mr. Logan is far from an hour spent in idle talk, for Newton's lecturer in art succeeds in fascinating his listener with little effort. A true Bostonian, living not far from the Joy Street of Frances Parkinson Keyes fame, and a warm weather devotee of invigorating Maine air, Mr. Logan feels a strong attachment to New England. His love for this part of the country may be considered a compliment, since having liv?d abroad tor Liur teen years, he has had ample opportunity to compare the attractions of New England with the beauties of Europe. While in Europe, Mr. Logan mostly stayed in France where he maintained a large studio. However, he often escorted his small group of students on a tour of the neighboring countries, always endeavoring to develop in them a style of their own. His lectures on Renaissance art or Gothic architecture arc always touched with the brush of personal experience that so enlivens our academic landscape....

Meet Newton's New Nurses Misses Carlson and Leonard [Newspaper Article] — 885 — 1 November 1958

Miss Carlson was graduated in 1952, Miss Leonard in 1957. Since then Miss Carlson has done post graduate work in psychiatry at Columbia University's Psychiatric Institute in New York City, and also studied at a Sacred Heart College on the west coast, San Diego College for Women. Miss Carlson's home is in Bridgeport. Miss Leonard is a native New Yorker, although she attended Lauralton Academy in Milford, Connecticut, before she began her training at St. Vincent's School of Nursing. Miss Carlson has always wanted to be a nurse, and planned her work accordingly from elementary school. Her father traces her choice of nursing to when she was two and had her tonsils out. At present Miss Carlson is thinking of putting her excellent combination of psychiatry, nursing and sociology to use by doing social work in San Diego. Sh...
