We, the class of 1960, have completed our
last year at Newton Junior College. Some
of us now will step out into the world of
business while others continue their educa-
tion. Before we bid our final farewells, let
us pause and review the last two years.
The first action on the part of the student
body, in the Fall of '58, was to elect the
Student C o u n c i l: Don Lawn, President,
Nancy Folsom, Secretary, George Early and
Ernie Dunbar, second year Representatives,
Karen Davis and Fred Maher, first year Rep-
resentatives. The "Get-Acquainted Dance"
was our first social function of the year.
This dance proved such a success that it
was followed by the "Harvest Hop" and then
the Christmas Party. A Ski-Weekend at
Mount Snow got the second semester off to a
good start. Two other events enjoyed by all
were the "Winter Dance" and the "Pops
Concert". Nancy Folsom was elected prom
queen at the annual Senior Prom. To close
out the term there was the Spring Outing at
The students had opportunities to partici-
pate in a variety of sports. In the tennis
tournament, Joanne Clark won the women's
singles, Guy Holbrook the men's singles, the
men's doubles was won by Mr. Taylor and
Mr. Fielder. The basketball team, coached
by Mr. Wilson, won 9 and lost 5. After an
opening defeat, the baseball team rallied to
a near perfect score of 7 wins, one loss, and
This year as last, Student Council elections
were first on the agenda. Dick Reitman was
elected President, along with Gail Gallup,
Secretary, Jimmy Pitarys and Judi Feld-
berg, s e c o n d year Representatives , and
Michael Leith, first year Representative. The
social activities started off with an "Orien-
tation Picnic" for all students at the Newton
Center Playground. The Fall dance was held
at the Newton Center Women's Club. The
rain did nothing to dampen the fun of those
who attended. Nearly the whole school turned
out for the Christmas Party which was the
last get-together of 1959. The "Sidney Hill
Country Club Dance" was a high spot of our
last semester at NJC.
The tennis season was active last Fall with
Ursula Bender and Alan Hackel winning the
women's singles, men's singles, and together
the mixed doubles. Mr. Taylor and Mr. Field-
er ran away with the men's doubles again.
The cheerleaders were a visibly attractive
addition to the basketball court.
Great strides were made to improve our li-
brary in 1959. An appropriation of five thou-
sand dollars enabled the library to increase
its number of volumes. During this period
the shelf space was doubled and the number
of periodicals was tripled.
With the closing of the doors we would like
to express our appreciation to our faculty.
Without their wisdom and understanding
these past two years would not have been

"Once upon a time. . ."
The Freshman class of 1959 had an enroll-
ment of one hundred and ninety-five stu-
dents, a fifty-one percent increase over the
preceding year's and the largest since the
establishment of the College.
The past two years have been marked by
several additions to the academic curricu-
lum, the most significant being the nursing
program. Already, there are fifteen students
in this program, four of whom are married.

The course is designed to qualify students
as bedside nurses, their education requires
two academic years, including two summer
