College Town.

Byline: Bonnie Russell

COLUMN: COLLEGE TOWN

Gary L. Kiontke thought something was missing each time he heard
the Christmas carol "
I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

."

The
WPI

 
alumnus

 found out he was right when he read the words to
the poem "Christmas Bells," written by Henry Wadsworth
Longfellow in December of 1864. The poem, which was put to music by John
Baptiste Calkin in 1872, is most often sung minus several stanzas.

The former actuary, now pastor of the
First Congregational Church

 of Clinton, shared the words with College Town.

A little on the background on the poem follows.

According to several accounts, Longfellow's son, Charles, had
run off to serve in the Civil war and was injured, and Longfellow wrote
the poem while he was nursing the young man after they arrived back in
Cambridge.

College Town asked WPI professors with expertise in literature for
insight into the writing of this poem. Kent P. Ljungquist, professor of
English responded.

"I can't claim any special knowledge of that specific
poem, but I do have a few comments on the Civil War's impact on

HWL

HWL Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
HWL High Warlord
HWL Hazardous Waste List
HWL High Water Line
. For Henry Wadsworth Longfellow the years 1861-65 represented a time
of shattering personal loss, shadowed by the national tragedy of the
Civil War," Mr. Ljungquist said, enumerating the losses that came
to the poet - the death of his wife Fanny in a fire at their home,
dismay at the war's violence, the enlistment and subsequent injury
of his son Charley and the deaths of a Harvard colleague and Bowdoin
College classmate.

And today, strife and upheaval still abound in Worcester, across
the nation and throughout the world, but so does hope - the essence of
Christmas.

Longfellow's poem follows:

"Christmas Bells"

"I heard the bells on Christmas Day

Their old, familiar carols play,

And wild and sweet

The words repeat

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come,

The belfries of all Christendom

Had rolled along

The unbroken song

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till, ringing, singing on its way,

The world revolved from night to day,

A voice, a chime,

A chant sublime

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Then from each black, accursed mouth

The cannon thundered in the South,

And with the sound

The carols drowned

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

It was as if an earthquake rent

The hearth-stones of a continent,

And made forlorn

The households born

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;

`There is no peace on earth,' I said:

`For hate is strong,

And mocks the song

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!'

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

`God is not dead; nor
doth
  
v. Archaic
A third person singular present tense of do1.
 he sleep!

The Wrong shall fail, The Right prevail, With peace on earth,
good-will to men!'"

Salisbury Mansion in 3-D

Becker College interior design students were invited to work with
the Worcester Historical Museum on a project during the fall semester to
repurpose rooms in the Salisbury Mansion for modern use. The students
recently presented their projects to Vanessa Bumpus, Worcester
Historical Museum exhibit coordinator and designer, and the projects are
on display in the Becker Design Building on the Worcester Campus.

When they return for the spring 2013 semester, the students will
prepare the same room perspectives in a 3-D CAD format. In April, the
Salisbury Mansion will host a public opening at which the Becker
students will present and explain their work.

Holy Cross students carol at White House

Christmas came early for the Delilahs, an all-female a cappella
group from the
College of the Holy Cross

, whose 12 members performed at
the White House Dec. 17.

The Delilahs, formed in the late 1970s shortly after the first
female students enrolled at the College, were invited to sing holiday
songs for guests as they toured the "People's House."

Elizabeth Mahoney a senior, from Dover, Mass., sent an application
to perform several months ago, and as a result the Deliahs were invited
to sing.

The 12 members of the group, who perform regularly on campus, sang
classic holiday songs as tour groups passed through the White House.
Their set list included "Silent Night," "Deck the
Halls," "Come All Ye Faithful," "Joy to the
World," "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Winter
Wonderland," among others.

In addition to Mahoney, the other group members are: Lauren Clair
of Walden, N.Y.; Emma Colbert (co-chair) of Westboro; Eva Coll of
Washington, D.C.; Betsy Glynn of Brightwaters, N.Y.; Stefania Khoda of
Georgetown, Mass.; Emma Linsenmeyer of Fairfield, Conn.; Natasha Meyer
of Elm Grove, Wis.; Stephanie Montilla of Providence, R.I.; Dorisanne
Ragon of Virginia Beach; Margaret Rogers of Rumford, R.I. and
