We have lived among them 
And have helped prove them. 
In believing themj 
We make them exist. 




Ten years ago no college existed "on the 
shining heights of Newton." Ten brief years 
have seen the firm establishment and truly 
miraculous growth of our own dear Newton 
College of the Sacred Heart. Its five beauti- 
ful buildings, its student body that will reach 
the three hundred mark in September, its 
well-organized, loyal Alumnae, its high scho- 
lastic standard recognized in New England 
and further afield, its well-known School of 
Liturgical Music, its own peculiar charac- 
teristics such as the special brand of family 
spirit among the students fostered by the 
mingling of every class in each house, its 
high excellence in all studies integrated 
under the liberating reign of Theology, 
Queen of the Sciences, its intense liturgical 
life finding highest expression in the daily 
Missa recitata vel cantata: these are the 
splendor of Newton raised to the glory of 
the Most Holy Trinity through the Heart 
from which Newton came. 

It was indeed from the Heart of Christ 
that Newton was born, for Newton finds 
her place in the Church, the Bride that issued 
from the side of the Second Adam as He 
slept in death on the Cross. One of the 
soldiers opened His side and there came 
forth the Sacraments, red blood and living 
water, sanguis et aqua into which are 
changed the wine and water of our Mass. 
What else do our Burgundy and Blue stand 
for but that fountain of grace and joy that 
sprang from the pain of the crucified? 

The old order changes giving place to the 
new. The waters flow along, year by year 
in volume gaining. We are in that stream 
of grace, that never failing fountain. Let 
us never swerve from the channel, but wear 
it ever deeper, singing as we go. 

— Mother Eleanor Kenny 



/ 




We dedicate this yearbook to Mother Eleanor 
Kenny, Newton's first president, that her 
creative insight which formed the spirit of the 
college and gave direction to its aims, might 
be fully actualized in us.

GUSHING with its young and modern quality, 
gradually integrates itself into Newton spirit, 
while Hardey, its neighbor house, reflects 
experience and maturity. New buildings are 
added to the old just as knowledge of ourselves 
increases as we go from Freshman to Senior year.

People we will always 



Mother White: For her role in shaping 
our characters. 




70 



remember for their special brand of encouragement 




Father Friel: Who was always interested in 
"whatever we thought." 



Our parents: The first cause of our being 
at Newton. 



THE SENIOR THESIS 



The thesis of senior year; seeing relationships that make our life 
and our studies one. 



In our first year foundations were laid 
for future development at Newton. We grew 
up with our buildings and, like them, began 
with high plans and unbounded enthusiasm. 
We found outlets for our energy in hazing 



and our Freshman show, OF THEE WE 
SING, NEWTON ; we learned how to keep it 
within the limits of order by the discipline 
of Student Government. 






•-=^=^«*?1»#|»'t|pv.- 



Through Student Gov- 
ernment we learn to 
govern ourselves and 
lead others, while Social 
Committee upholds a 
standard of social be- 
havior and finds dates 
for dances throughout 
the school year.

dent; N. Kottenstette, Secre- 
tary; M. Lee, Treasurer; P.

73 





As Sophomores our most important 
concern was deciding on a major field 
and realizing the amount of hard work 
and concentration needed to be a stu- 
dent. It wasn't all drudgery though. 
We ran a successful Christmas Carnival 
and serenaded our Senior sisters. 






74 



fJEX.-- 





'vi^^i 



We grew in social maturity. At 
Junior Weekend and the Ring 
Banquet, we tried out our new 
sophistication. Some of us got 
married and engaged ; others 
stayed to take on different re- 
sponsibilities here at school. 




"St. Thomas," our studies in our major fields, our 
dances, our dates, our friendships, all began to fit together 
under the high pressure of a busy Senior year. We got to 
know ourselves and our classmates better and did our best to 
pass our joy in Newton down to the other classes . . .

Newton's frontiers change and move 
forward. Our founders know what it means 
to build. They watched Stuart's corner- 
stone being laid in 1947, and since then they 
have had the courage to break new ground 
whenever the need arose. 




The class schedule 
sets the tempo of our 
day. Somehow, there is 
time for everything, 
from the unexpected 
phone call, to the hours 
spent at study, — and 
even a spare moment to 
check the post office for 
mail.

No. 5 



ARCHBISHOP WILL CONFER DEGREES JUNE 3RD 




Archbishop Cushing: (on right), who will preside at Commencement, is shown here 
with Right Rev. Robert J. Sennott (center) at a reception at Newton for Archbishop 
Bomolo Carboni. (See story on page 3) 



French Government 
Gives Legion Gross 
To Mother General 

On May 10th, Reverend Mother de 
Lescure, Superior General of the Soci- 
ety of the Sacred Heart, received from 
the French government the signal honor 
of being decorated with the cross of 
a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. 
The presentation was made in the 
Mother House in Rome. Via Nomen- 
tana, by the French ambassador to 
Italy, M. Roland de Margerie. 

In the course of the ceremony, M. de 
Margerie remarked that the honor paid 
to Our Mother General was addressed 
through her to the Society throughout 
the world. M. de Margerie himself has 
known the Society in the L'nited States, 
in Spain and in China. 

In replying. Reverend Mother de 
Lescure attributed all the work which 
the Society has been able to accomplish 
to St. Madeleine Sophie, who had, she 
said, "a French heart and mind, but a 
Roman soul," and who had given her 
Society "traditions of Catholicity." A 
Religious of the Sacred Heart, she point- 
ed out. "reaches beyond national bound- 
aries to the Kingdom of God every- 
where." 



College Welcomes 
Rev. Mother Barry 

Newton students welcomed Reverend 
Mother Barry at a reception in her hon- 
or on Monday, May 13th. Reverend 
Mother Bany, Superior Vicar of the 
Washington Vicariate, was also local 
superior here at Newton College two 
years ago, before the seat of the Vicari- 
ate was again moved to Washington, 
D.C. Her stay at Newton was the bien- 
nial visit which she makes to each of 
the houses in her Vicariate. 

In an address to the college, Reverend 
Mother noted especially the great in- 
crease in the student body in the past 
two years. After her address she graci- 
ously greeted each student personally. 

TV Camera Spotlights 
Familiar Newton Scenes 

A televised interview and informal 
discussions conducted by Miss Carey, 
Director of the Dramatic Club, will 
highlight Newton's publicity activities 
for this semester. The program, in 
which students and alumnae will parti- 
cipate, will be presented over Provi- 
dence TV station WPRO. Channel 12, 
Sunday morning, May 26th. from 11:30 
a.m. to 12 noon.

Since We Benefit . , . 



When a prospective freshman is considering coming to Newton, 
one of her first questions is: "What does Newton have to oflfer me?" 
There are many things such as Catholic atmosphere, good location, 
small size, and liberal permissions which recommend the school to 
the outsider. But once she has become an insider, she finds that, 
above all, she is on her own. Her term papers will be good or just 
average as she is willing to devote her time. Her extra-curricular 
life will be more or less happy as she is willing to enter into activities. 
The chance to decide for oneself what college will mean to us 
is one of the best features of Newton. Things of value such as daily 
Mass, lectures, or membershoip in a club, while available to all, are 
not forced on anyone. In college, where a sense of values and of 
responsibility must develop, this freedom is a great asset. In the 
matter of choosing courses, we are free to take the path of least re- 
sistance or to enter a challenging field. Outside the classroom, there 
are many club and class functions. Each one decides what she should 
join, or if she should join at all. 

But besides this gift of "self-determination," everyone is ex- 
posed to a college life which, both intellectually and socially, is in- 
terested in the modern world. As students we study and read about 
it; as Catholics we are taught a sound philosophy by which to judge 
it. This combination of study and judgment, past and present, pro- 
duces not just an educated, but a cultured Catholic. 

These are just two things which Newton has to oflfer: the plea- 
sure of choosing freely to do things in all spheres of campus life; 
the provision of things of value to make that choice worthwhile. 

By Patricia Hinchey '57 

We Should Also Give 

"What do I have to oflfer Newton?" This is the other side of the 
coin — the correlative to the question posed in Pat Hinchey's editorial. 
Obviously, students help make the college. Indifference can obscure 
the best of advantages. Clubs or other extra-curricular activities can 
be fascinating or flops, depending on the students (or lack of stu- 
dents) who make them so. Lectures can be stimulating or boring, 
depending on the demand and support of the students. 

If we demand the best of our college — and we should — we have 
to give something of ourselves to it — our interest. This may seem 
like a small contribution, almost too obvious in application. Yet it is 
the key to a successful college life. What we bring to college deter- 
mines what we will "get out of it." This pertains to all phases of col- 
lege life — spiritual, academic, and social. We are free to make of 
them what we will. 

The freedom of "self-determination" at Newton entails a per- 
sonal responsibility. Freedom of choice is the greatest of human 
gifts, but it must be respected and used wisely. A college can offer 
opportunities, but we must use them.

Lighter Side Among Ourselves 



June is here at last, and with it the 
all-enveloping excitement that accom- 
panies vacations and travel. Voices are 
pitched just a note or two higher when 
summer plans are discussed, and at 
least three registers higher when "tans" 
are compared. Girls can be found peer- 
ing at obviously healthy images in the 
mirror and bemoaning the lack of 
circles under their eyes — the only chic 
manifestations of a week of exams (on 
the college level, of course). 



j Summer jobs are a frequent topic, 
and no one seems to understand why 
riore people don't want to pay $150 a 
week for highly talented beachcombers. 
Alter all, this is a job that definitely 
calls for special skills, and as the berry- 
picking rates have been lowered, it's the 
answer to that ever-present question — 
what to do this summer? 



Ah. well, these are the usual monu- 
mental worries of the college girl, and 
they are quickly forgotten when life's 
bigger problems arise, i.e. how to get 
three years accumulation of clothes in 
an overnight bag, and how to get to 
Detroit on thirty-two cents and a paper 
clip. 



CONGRATULATIONS: To Nancy 
Bowdring '57, Mary Corbelt, Sheila 
Hurley, Mary Ellen Cunningham, Betsy 
Dray, all '58, and Frances Beane '59,

awarded a scholarship to study this 
summer at the Iber Americana Uni- 
versity in Mexico. 

STUDY ABROAD: Jennie Van Bibber 
'59, after a summer sojourn in Europe, 
will study there for a year. 

TRAVEL: Mrs. Aradi, of the Art De- 
partment, will visit friends and rela- 
tives in Europe this summer, and Miss 
Bookie, instructor in English, will re- 
turn to her native Ireland for a visit.

Judy Carey '58. 

Rhoda Ackerson, ex-'58, will travel 
to Budapest to visit her father for a few 
months this summer. 

Paola Ajo '59 travels home to Rome 
and later to Switzerland, where she will 
join Alice Haley, ex-'59. They plan to 
spend some time in Edinburgh together. 

Brenda Koehler '60 will travel to 
Newfoundland to visit her roommate 
Gertrude Martin, also '60. 

A motor trip to the west coast is 
planned by Sheila Quinlan and Bunny 
Phelan, both '58. 

ENGAGED: Lucy Renter, ex-'58, to 
Richard Dolan. Jo Kirk and Gail Mc-

LAY APOSTOLATE IN ACTION 



Page 3 



This year the Lay Apostolate was 
inaugurated at Newton. Pat Blanchard 
'57, under the sponsorship of the Mis- 
sion Unit, will go to Kingston, Jamai- 
ca, B.W.I., sometime in August as a vol- 
unteer teacher. A few weeks ago, the 
Most Reverend John J. McEleney, S.J., 
Bishop of Jamaica, visited Newton and, 
in an interview with Pat, expressed his 
happiness in her choice. 

Pat first became interested when 
Mother Walsh explained the importance 
of the movement to the Mission Unit 
last year. The Lay Apostolate began at 
Regis in 1949, to alleviate the desperate 
need of missionaries in staffing their 
schools; a Regis senior was sent to 
Guam that year. The movement has 
sjnced snow-balled, and the Holy Father 
has enthusiastically encouraged it. 

Today, several colleges in New Eng- 
land send graduates to the place of their 
choice for a year. Schools staffed by 
Lay Apostolate workers are located in 
Alaska, New Mexico, North Carolina, 
and many other areas. Jamaica has 
special interest for us here, as it is a 
mission of the New England Province 
of the Society of Jesus. 

In the Lay Apostolate program, col- 
lege graduates donate a year to teach- 
ing without remuneration in a mission 
field. Transportation is provided by 
their colleges, and living facilities are 
■provided by the Bishop or parish- where 
they are stationed. The experience has 



been invaluable to those who wish to 
continue teaching, and the travel and 
social opportunities have been reward- 
ing. Of course the greatest satisfaction 
is in the knowledge of work well done 
for the love of God. 

Pat, a true "pioneer," has everyone's 
best wishes, and it is hoped that from 
her example the Lay Apostolate will 
grow in strength and numbers here at 
Ne%vton.

NEW GENERAL COURSE IS PLANNED CHURCH DIGNITARIES VISIT COLLEGE 



A major curriculum change which 
will replace the present program for 
Freshman and Sophomore year, and 
which will go into effect with the in- 
coming Freshman class has been an- 
nounced by the Office of the Dean. 
Under the new plan the present theology 
and philosophy requirements (totaling 
five hours of class a week) will be re- 
tained, and an elective in a language, 
science, or mathematics, may be taken 
but is not required. 

The major change involves the in- 
troduction of a new course, "A Study 
of Western Culture," which will form 
the basis of the underclassmen's sched- 
ule. During Freshman year the student 
will consider western civilization until 
1453. Sophomore year the course will 
include from 1453 to the present. Sopho- 
mores will also be required to take any 
courses prerequisite for their major 
field. 

The five hour a week course on west- 
ern culture will consist of lectures given 
daily by one of fifteen or twenty mem- 
bers of the faculty, with the possible in- 
clusion of guest speakers. Aspects of 
western culture to be considered will in- 
clude political history, history of the 
arts, literature, science, mathematics. 
and social and economic thought. 

The students will then be divided 
into small groups which will meet with 
one of the professors the week following 



his lecture. The purpose of these dis- 
cussions is to clarify aspects of the topic 
considered the preceding week. 

Emphasis will be placed on outside 
reading which should be done approxi- 
mately two hours each day. This out- 
side work should correlate with the lec- 
ture periods by supplementing material 
presented during class sessions. 

Two test periods will be held each 
week during which the student will be 
quizzed, first objectively, and then by 
essay questions, on the main facts and 
basic concepts of the lectures given the 
preceding week. 

The purpose of the new plan is to 
establish a basis of general knowledge 
for all students and to train the students 
in habits of thought, individual work, 
and careful oral and written expression. 

Plans are also being formulated for 
a new English Composition class for 
Freshmen. Candidates for this course 
will be determined by the student's Col- 
lege Board Examination rating in Eng- 
lish and by her treatment of the essay 
questions given in connection with the 
new "Western Culture" course. 

The offering of two new major fields, 
Political Science, which will be included 
in the History department, and Econom- 
ics, which will be included in the So- 
ciology department, has also been an- 
nounced. 



Members of the hierarchy from three 
continents have been guests at Newton 
during May: our own Archbishop of 
Boston, the Apostolic Delegate to New 
Zealand and Australia, and the new 
Bishop of South Korea. 

On Thursday morning, May 23rd, 
Bishop Harold W. Henry, S.S.C, Vicar 
Apostolic of Kwangju, South Korea, 
celebrated the 7:15 Mass at Newton. 
Bishop Henry had been consecrated a 
bisliop by Archbishop Gushing the pre- 
vious Saturday in the Cathedral of the 
Holy Cross in Boston. Bishop Henry

Scholastic Honors 
Go to Glass of 1961 

"Honors at Entrance" awards have 
been bestowed on twenty prospective 
freshmen selected from a field of nine- 
ty-three applicants. These honors corres- 
pond to the scholarship awards given 
by Newton in past years, and entitle the 
winners to be placed on the Dean's List 
at entrance. 

The term. "Honors at Entrance," in- 
cludes both honorary and financial 
scholarships. Award winners were chos- 
en from girls who requested financial 
assistance, as well as from outstanding 
students who merely applied for en- 
trance. Selection was based on the stu- 
dent's place in the upper quarter of her 
class, on the results of her College 
Board Examinations, on the recommen- 
dation of her principal, and her over- 
all high school record. 

The twenty awards are spread over 
seven states and one foreign country. 
Massachusetts boasts the largest number 
of winners with ten awards, three go- 
ing to students at Archbishop Williams 
High School in Braintree; New Jersey 
is next with three winners; Pennsyl- 
vania has two; and Maryland and Con- 
necticut one each. Illinois and Wiscon- 
sin claim one winner each, as does 
Japan. Seven Sacred Heart Academy 
students are numbered among the 
group, and one "sister," Faith Quin- 
lan. sister of Sheila '58.

425 CENTRE ST., opp. Library 
NEWTON, MASS. 



As part of the Student Government 
program for next year, a new commit- 
tee has been organized for the express 
purpose of fostering better student-fac- 
ulty relations. The Student-Faculty 
Committee consists of ten students re- 
presenting each class, and members of 
the faculty, both religious and lay. 

Headed by Sheila Quinlan '58, this 
committee met for the first time on 
Monday, May 13th. This meeting was to 
determine the interest in and possible 
activities of this program. A lively dis- 
cussion and positive suggestions marked 
the meeting a success. 

Plans for next year included fre- 
quent informal talks by faculty mem- 
bers on timely subjects in fields such 
as art, music, social problems, etc. These 
would be open to any students inter- 
ested in the current topic. The Commit- 
tee itself plans to meet periodically to 
talk over student affairs and problems. 

The general tenor of the meeting in- 
dicated that both students and faculty 
would benefit by a closer contact, on 
both social and academic levels. Fur- 
ther suggestions for achieving this are 
being worked out, and the Committee 
hopes to inaugurate some of these next 
year. 

Arena Style Program 
Scores Another Hit 
For Opera Workshop 

The Opera Workshop's initial attempt 
at a theatre in the round production at 
Newton on Monday evening. May 13th, 
was a significant success. Directed and 
accompanied by Mrs. F.K. Balling, the 
Workshop presented excerpts from "The 
Marriage of Figaro," "Tales of Hoff- 
man," and "Porgy and Bess" in this 
manner. Scenery and costumes for the 
production were kept to a minimum, 
and special interest was aroused by the 
lighting effects. 

Among the cast Kate McCann, Cathy 
Connolly, Peggy McMurrer, Nancy 
Harvey, and Janet Chartier shared the 
leading roles, while John Sweeney, John 
Bresnahan, and Joseph Vidoli sang the 
male parts. Pat Ritchie was the assist- 
ant accompanist, with Glenna La Salle 
at the harp; the overture was played by 
Pat and Peggy McMurrer.

The Student Council, during the last 
month of school, has been planning next 
year's activities. Jo Englert and the next 
Student Council have drawn up a ten- 
tative program to be enacted next Sep- 
tember. This program includes: 1) 
a more active Social Committee; 2) 
meetings of the Student-Faculty Com- 
mittee to provide closer student-faculty 
relations and discussions of theoretical 
and practical problems in the college; 
3 ) a more definite channeling of opin- 
ion through class representatives to the 
Council; 4) fewer Student assemblies, 
with each meeting less concerned with 
details and open to necessary explana- 
tions or expression of opinion from the 
floor. 

The new Student Council is also re- 
vising the Handbook of the Constitution 
and By-laws, with a view to greater 
clarity and a more thorough explana- 
tion of college functions for the benefit 
of the incoming freshman class. 

In conjunction with Student Council 
plans for next year, N.S.A. sponsored 
a Student Government Forum on Thurs- 
day, May 9th. Mother Husson opened 
the forum with a talk on qualities that 
are, or should be found in Newton stu- 
dents. Jo Engert led a panel discussion 
on which Mother Smitli, Mr. Curran 
and five members of Student Council 
discussed means for the proper channel- 
ing of student opinion which is so im- 
portant for all Student Government sys- 
tems. The forum continued with group 
meetings of students and faculty mem- 
bers who discussed facets of college life 
at Newton. The minutes of these meet- 
ings will be analyzed and reorganized 
to provide a reference for Student Gov- 
ernment next year.
