We the class of 1957, Wish to dedicate this book to those who have contributed most to our college year, Mr. Kenneth White, Dean of Men, and Miss Alice Kennedy,Dean ofWom- en . They have served as foster parents to us all, teaching, listening, and even chastising, but always with our interests at heart. Y They have aided us in attaining our goals. They have not only trained us inthe ways of'Newton Junior College, but also fitted us for that life into which we now go forth. To you, then, Deans W'hite and Kennedy, we say thanks , and may your faith in us never be betrayed. 3 ll AJ1 ru., 4, W W 1 f Aww xwafrffzy So many and varied are the valuable experiences we have in a college year that no one can retain them all in his memory. The importance of looking back - on these experiences is immeasurable, whether from the distance of a year or a generation, for to be reminded of friendships, of knowledge discovered, and of those who helped us discover, is to reflect, and to reflect is to grow wiser in carving our lives from the block of time. It has been the privilege of the year book committee to aid your memories by recording in this book some of '57's events at Newton Junior College. It is our sincere hope that you enjov your reflections, now and always.

Y' Q2 1455 The NJC freshmen have contributed much to the betterment of the college by heading boards and clubs, serving on various committees, and adding to the honor list . . . Diplomatic speeches could be heard through the corridor, heralding the approach of Jay Wilson, vice- chairman-treasurer of the student council, member of the social board and international club . . . Bob Holmes and Lang Anderson' also represented the freshmen on the student council. The Arnold Twins have been active in heading the social affairs---Bob, as chairman of the outing club, and Dick as chairman of the social board. Other freshm en on the social board include: Joan Hun- ter, secretary, Ros Liberace, Monique Lombard, Sylvia Diamond, Carolyn Cleveland, Jim Levenbaum, Dick Barrette, Bob Arnold, and Paul Engborg. The pop of flash bulbs announced the approach of Dick Barretts and Dick White---Dick White, in ad- dition to being a Reflector photographer has been chairman of the athletic board and played baseball. Also on the baseball team were Ray Acheson, Joe Adario, Bob DiCicco, Don Jones, Jim Levenbatun, Dick Louis, Dick Arnold, and Duncan Perro. The building improvement committee, under the direction of John DiBenedetto, included freshmen KevinPheeney,Jane Bailey, and Cliff Benoit---who have exerted a never-ending effort in improving the lounge as well as the rest of the building. Williel-larris,JohnDavid Jenkins, Bob Holmes, and Don Luster were freshinan members of the basket- ball team. The internafional club, headed by Sylvia Diamond, was fortunate to have among its members, David Rousseau, from France and co-chairman, Monique Lombard from Switzerland, and Vincent Finelli from Italy. Jack Whitney was given the honor of being chosen chairman of the publications board and business manager of the 1957 Reflector. Freshman committee members included Paul Toomey, Charles Raworth, Sylvia Diamond, Lang Anderson, Dick and Bob Arnold, Dick Barrette, and Jane Bailey. It is thanks to the efforts of the above freshmen and the whole student body that NJC has had such a successful year. 15 f ze. fl ... fy Q., Wwe TOP ROW: P Ro eveen, W. Harris, M. Yaffee D Perro, L.

W. Wilson, Vice-President-Treas - uxer, Bob I-lohn es, and Langford B. Anderson. Our faculty advisor, who has been an invaluable asset,was Dr. Merrill. At the beginning of theyear, we set up various boards and committes to handle the different types of studentactivities. It then became their responsibility to plan and carry out social functions and athletic events, as well as to improve the school building. We have strived to settle a multitude of student problems before they were called to the attention of the Administration. It has been our purpose to be a policy-making council. As a result, we feel that not only this year the school has benefited, but that the policies that we have adopted will be beneficial to Newton Jtmior Col- lege in years to come. 18 The Publications Board The Publications Board, headed by John Whitney, includes the newspaper staff and yearbook com- mittee. This year, a few enterprising students started a newspaper, the Stoic, to act as the voice of the stu- dents, expressing their ideas and opinions. Bob Flynn, Lang Anderson, Merriam Knight, and Lyn Rowell were the original staff and responsible for getting it off to a good start. The present staff consists of Rob- ert Flynn, Editor-in-Chief, John Carr, Features Editor, and Merriam Knight, Business Editor. Bob was seen manya time intently at work behind the mimeographing machine trying, and succeeding in getting the copy out on time, not only this, but he also contributed many well written articles. Merriam gave generouslyofher time to selling and writing interesting anicles as well. Contributions came from many students, including Lynn Rowell, J. W. 'Wilson, Linnea Bjork, Ibby Ellis, Diane Joyce, and Bernie Mansur whose short story, "Eight-Ball",ranin several issues and was a great success. We hope that the Stoic con- tinues to grow and to fulfill its purpose. NJC's yearbook is entitled the "Reflector," and, as the name implies it is a reflection of college activities during the year. This year it was headed by Ibby Ellis, Editor-in-Chief, Diane Joyce, Features Editor, and JackWhitney, Business Manager. The committee members were: Sylvia Diamond, Jim Sul- livan,ChuckRaworth,Jane Bailey,Ken Knox, Paul Toomey, Lyn Rowell, Bob Arnold, Bill Dunlavy, Mike Flynn, L. B. Anderson, Herb Gleason, Dick Barrette, and Dick Arnold. Under the able supervision ofthe editors, and with the advice ofMiss Miles,the various abilities of the committee members were discovered and put to good use. Thanks to their co -operation and hard work, and to the many students who helped and contributed although not on the committee, we have the 1957 REFLECTOR. . Q , qs 'S X . -.J V Social Board Under the watchful eyes of Dean White, Faculty Advisor, J. W. Wilson, Student Council Advisor, and Richard Arnold, Board Chairman, the Social Board provided social activities for the students. Three special committees of the board were: The Prom Committee, Outing Club, and International Club. Climbing mountains, informal student dances, swimming at Cape Cod, and the annual promenade, which was held at The Woodland Country Club, were among the highlights of the 1956-1957 social season at Newton Junior College. 20 Athletic Boa rd This year NJC has participated in two team sports: basketball and baseball. It is the job of the Athletic Board to set athletic policy and find enough people to make complete teams and squads. Through the work of the eight man Athletic Board, headed by Dick White, in cooperation with the coaches and the Faculty Committee on Athletics, the basketball and baseball teams were formed. Any sport in which the school participates comes under the authority of this board, including the table tennis in the lounge. Thanks to the efforts of the Newton Women's Clubs and Dr. Barrow's gift we have a usable table for which the board bought new equipment. F l 2l rf" H -lf" Q-'inf' .2 In lx Fi-n 5 The I i Building Improvement Committee Under the chairmanship of John DiBenedetto, the Building Improvement Committeemerged with the Student Lounge Committee, both committees be- ing concerned withthe improvement of the physical appearance of the school. The big project was the execution of the Ivy Day program. During Christmas Vacation, several students, including Dick Oakes, Bob Hunter, and Jim Sullivan, devoted many hours to the redecoration of our "dun- geon" in order to make ita more pleasant place in which to lounge. fWhy they chose shocking pink they never did reveal., The Newton Women's Clubs con'- tributed the table tennis equipment and added the final touch by hanging cur- tains. Rounding out the committee were Bob Quigly, Lyn Rowell, and Mike Flynn. 22 .Q -as 4'-R x B 5 W W' ff b if-sf 1 - we-f 'YU' 1" L Ho.

This year, the club held two expeditions up Mount Monadnock, and a ski weekend at Birchtoft Lodge, a resort, in New Hampshire. All in all, the season was very successful as the students heartily enjoyed these events and, except for some rather questionable cripples who appeared the Monday after one of the climbs, there were no casualties. R Q, . V, .5331-IS , K International Club The International Club, organized to bring together our foreign students with N.J.C. Students interested in furthering international understanding, has experienced several enjoyable meetings. At our first meeting, held in the N.J.C. Library, we were entertained by Monique, who described life in Switzerland. An International atmosphere prevailed at Mr. Taylor's home where dressed in Japanese Kimonoswe drank American Cokes, at the sound of French music filledthe living room. We also spent an enjoy- able evening at a party given by Kevin Pheeney. Among the events planned for the spring, are included a.n evening at pops and a visitor from Sweden, which promises to justify our purposes F. 1 in forming this organization. 'K D.

I'm sure that we would all agree, if it came right down to it, that the College's weeklyOrien1:ation meetings are well worth the effort required to pull ourselves out of bed, and up three flights of stairs to the li- brary at 8:30 in the morning for something "which isn't even a class." For, in the li- brary on Wednesday mornings, snoworsleet NJC musters its student body for the privi- lege of listening to, and asking questions of people who are kind enough to share their time and knowledge with us. In this way, we have heardmany different people speak on many different subjects from a colorful lecture on the Mid- East crisis byMr. ElAramaryto immensely valuable advice on how to study effectively given to us by Mr. I-lenryBissex. In this way too, we were able to partake of the political wisdom of Mr. Dan Fenn, Director of World Affairs Council for Massachusetts, and to have a private showing, thanks to Mrs. Ralph Schreider, of "Assignment Children," a movie which left us not only charm ed by the inimitable Danny Kay,but with the impressively grave fact that for over half the world's children "UNICEF please" means not only milk, but life. Several of our Orientation meetings have been panels, ranging in discussion topic from "Careers in SocialWork"to "Prospects for World Peace." The panelists prove the security of their respective viewsby 93-in 26 allowing questions from the floor before the hour ends, and thus we have a chance to "be heard," which is taken good advantage of by the more vocal and bolder of us. Notable among discussions of this nature was a "Panel of Americans," This panel was composed of representatives of major American groups, and was fitting testimony to the theme discussed, that all men can be brothers, And, indeed, if there is any theme which underlies our Orientation meetings, it is this very one, We gather together on these mornings to learn of things that have happened, that are happening, and that can happen,so that we may increasingly grow in our ability to understand and appreciate other men, whether they be our own classmates here at NJC, or people of distant lands. I i 27 It is an ironic situation that so many of us should want to criticize our own generation for not having any life or spunk. In addition, our elders often wonder if we've forgotten how to enjoy ourselves, and in doing so only indicate that they still vividly recall the hectic 'roaring twenties' when Americans every- where went on one big party that lasted a decade. The truth of the matter is that we have no reason to be ashamed of our reticence and conservative out- look, for it is characteristic of the present generation to be just that way, as Carlos Baker, chairman of the English Department at Princeton, stated, "in the light of present undergraduate attitudes, if a term were to be invented for this age, it would be the 'Age of Conso1idation."' As we examine the social events of the year, we cannot help but notice with pride, the immense changes that have taken place since the first few weeks of college. The year began hesitatingly with a pretty self-conscious get-together Qbilled as the 'Snow Ball', and held at the Newton Highlands Women's Clubj after which the social life of the college began to wane, and almost faded out com- pletely, until suddenly there was a rash of Wednesday night parties at the home of Kevin Pheeney, avidly supported by the International Club. Flings and Things As the first signs of spring mud appeared around the campus, the Social Board began negotiating furi- ously behind closed doors for several days before fi- nally emerging, weary but triumphant, with a care- fully drawn up program which succeeded in disproving much of the rumors concerning the "creative spirit" of our students. It is significant to note that the spirit of the subsequent 'Spring Fling, ' held under conditions much the same as before, proved to be truly a re- freshing experience as compared with any social event up to that time. It was a real elbow-rubbing sort of affair, and lots of fun, and all were present, including Stevoreno andthe good Doctor who diligently took care of the punch bowl. The party at Birgit's, which followed a week later, was as pleasant a get-together as one could ask for, among the guests were Dean White and Chris Kohler, who presided over the TV set throughout the evening. It is perhaps this refreshed spirit that has been the most significant characteristic of our college year. lt seems that we have takena giant step in the right direction, and let us hope that in future years we will only be satisfied with that which is above the level of mediocrity. In so doing, we shall maintain that spirit of optimism, that watch- ful, careful spirit of consolidation that we have come to express so well this year in our social activities. '7 . I a, 3 Vigil," Y. 'x 29 5 A Basketball As far as wins are concerned, the 19 56-57 basketball sea- son wasa disappointing one. The team played a rough fifteen game sched1.11e, winning only two games. However, Coach Wilson deserves a great deal of credit for the marked im- provement in the team's playing as the season progressed. This was clearly shown in the last few games as the "Bears" lost by only a few points. The team was led by Captain Bill Peschier, and sparked by Devine, Harris, Holmes, Koutoujian, Luster, McGilv-ray, Mclnnis, and Reed. The loss of Justin McCarthy, due to an injury, in the early part of the season was a great setback. John Jenkins also deserves a great deal of credit as manager. 30 W ' 5 "1'- f a s ' W .,-- Q f 'F Q' Liar X , t ,gr K , , in X 3' .aw , Y , " 'iw-'ff' I af if , X . f vit 'cl Z gr 'I Q v A 41 ,Q 'FS f f at ,D as "' , JN' f .., me A, - wiv . - .f, ,, v ,' ..

The credit goes to Coach George Winkler and Co-Captains Pete Koutoujian and Bill Peschier for organizing veteran play- ers of last year, and the new men. Team members were: Dick McConnell, Don Jones, Dick White, Fred Sutherlund, Ray Acheson, Bob DiCicco, Bob Wood, Dick Louis, Duncan Perro, and Jim Levenbaum. 31 new 6 fQ Beware of Sylvia, Doc, she has a dangerous look in her eye . . .

It was then that the ivy, which we hope to see covering our school a few years hence, was planted. Under the watchful eye of Mike Flynn, chair- man, and the assistance of the Building Improvement Com- mittee, this event took place. Mike and Mr. Taylor shared the spotlight as masters of ceremony, introducing many of Newton's prominent citizens who each planted an ivy plant-Mr. Harold A. Wooster, re- presenting the Mayor, Mr. Leo M. Cannon, Alderman, Mr. Wendall R. Baukman, Chairman of the Board of Alderman, Mrs. Genivieve Oncley, School Committee, Mrs. Eveline Mooney, Chairman of the College Auxiliary, Newtonville Women'sClub,Mr. Fred C. Alexander, School Visiting Corn- mittee,Mrs. Irene K. Thresher Representative to the General Court, Dr. Harold B. Gores, Superintendent of Schools, and Mrs. Philip Wilbur, Chairman of the Education Committee NewtonHighland's Worn en's Club, as well as members of the NJC faculty, alumni, and student body. After the planting and short accompanying speeches, the guests adjourned to room 108 where coffee and donuts await- ed, served by Dean Kennedy. The Ivy is symbolic of im- mortalityas well as the growth, development and maturation of NJC. 34 Prom ,..

Long, flowing gowns and white dinner jackets Q Tom Powers in formal Bermuda shorts, were the dress of the even- ing as forty couples danced to the music of Geoffrey Carlton's Orchestra. Many faculty members appeared with their wives and husbands, helping make this gala event a success. All who attended agreed that this was the most wonderful night of the year. After the prom parties were held at the Doug Arnolds' and the JW Wilsons' where pots of coffee and plates of sandwiches added the final touch to the evening. s 'Y" 35 Baccalaureate given to a student who has shown qualities of outstanding cit- izenship, and "a willingness to consider pressing national and international problems." Bob was also honored with an NJC Service Award. Diane Joyce and Ibby Ellis both received Alumni Council Awards for high scholarship and loyalty to the College,-this award, just established, places a book in- scribed with the recipient's name in the NJC Library. NJC Service Awards were also given to Dick Oakes, Bob Hunter, andMike Flynn for their willing contributions to the College. J W Wilson received the Newton Kiwanis Scholarship, and Monique Lombard one of the Newton Federation of Women's Clubs Scholarships, all for continued study at NJC next year. Our first Baccalaureate was a truly memorable occasion, and will remain a milestone in the history of the College's growth. 7 This year,for the first time, Newton Junior College added a Baccalaureate Service to its program of Commencement activities. This event occurred on the rainy Sunday After- noon of June 2nd, when Dick Cakes, Dr. Merrill, and Dr. Navez led the procession of sophomores and faculty down the center aisle of City l-lall's Memorial Auditorium. Dr. Gores, Newton's Superintendent of Schools, opened the main part of the service with congratulations to the "bachelor," and then introduced Mr. Taylor who delivered the Baccalaureate ad- dress, directed to the graduating class, told oi the importance of individual thinking, courageous action, and living with cheer. A part ofthe service was devoted to the announcement of the year's awards and scholarships by Dean White. Six sopho- mores were the award recipients. First among them was Bob Flynn who received the Newton Community Forum Award 36 V' an y .' . . ,- f S . ga 2 ' AP' , ,A A - .. - 'gg-L-,-gy 'il-If .-el-J "i - .iff ' jk. fire. t ' V ,X'b-?"'f":NP, ago' 'T ',.. , :. ,Y h h-:fI,t3,2mM:A I E., KM: Vv'.?'..21' W 4 3 W t, 3 ' ' v,-5.

The Bells generously "loaned" their summer home in Cohasset for the oc- casion, and it was a perfect spot, next to the ocean, and with plenty of room for seventy-five "Newton Junioritesl' From 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. everybody joined in "making 'merry"-activities ranged from swimming to playing leap-frog in the sand so that everyone was able to find something enjoyable to participate in. The only tense note in the day oc- curred when Dick Oakes, Sylvia Diamond, Jim Sul- livan, and Ibby Ellis returned tired and hungry from the beach to find all the food gone! QA quick trip to Nantasket fixed this howeverj. The day was a grand success, a fine way to celebrate the year's completion. ' 1 54 42' 37 1 L .
