Robert Ashton, '59, outgoing
president of the Inter-House
Council, plunked his feet on a
desk as he began to drawl, in his
best Southern manner.
He even won a debate contest-
in high school--"Southern Speech
Congress, of course." Since that
time, Ashton has done quite a bit
of speaking, and a large part of
it has been about .IHC and the,

one of the major factors-in break-
ing down the size of the Univer-
sity and 'providing programs

dents may come together," he re-
Looks tp Future
Ashton has an education com-
plex-moreover, education in the
residence. halls. Those who know
him hear his opinions of the sub-
ject every other day. He sees the
day when the residence halls will
have to have educational coordin-
ators. "The University is too large
to carry this co rdination on oth-
erwise, and it needs every means
at hand," he claims. -
"The thing lacking in residence
halls is direction. They have been
on campus for twenty years as
expedient housing for students
without any comprehension of its
educational potential." He said
this view is prevalent among both
students and the administration,
He has supported the expansion
of quadrangle libraries, faculty
guest programs and a program of
displays and exhibits in the quad-
rangles. "Unattainable anywhere
else on campus," he claims.
"There is a paradox in residence
halls," he continued. It is that
there is. a strength because the
men are independent and a weak-
ness in. that there is no defined c
commitment. This needs to be
taken into account. '
The administration should use i
any ways it can to strengthen the
\ commitment to the residence
units, thus increasing house unity t

SOUTHERN GENTLEMAN-Ih a position of moderate relaxation,
Robert Ashton, retiring president of IHC, reflects on his ast
experiences at the University.
while at the same time not in-
fringing on, the rights of the in-
In comparing the r e siden e
halls to fraternities, Ashton says,
there is- a decided difference in
the kind of freedom for the indi-
vidual. "The fraternity offers the
freedom of the smaller group with,
the fewer rules that go along with
it. But residence halls allow'a per-
sonal freedom - one not bound
by ritual or pledge ceremony.
"It is up to the individual to
decide which group he prefers,
Personally; the idea of mutual se-
lection, which is a polite word for
institutionalized prejudice, has
never appeared to me."
Ashton views IHC's'main func-
tion as lobbying for the residence

halls. So he lobbies (a polite word
for pressurs everyone he can
find to get one thing or another
for the quadrangles. He's been
finagling to get milk machines in.
the residence halls for years.
"Over the years, I've developed
an amiable cynicism," he says.
"The administrators seem to
feel that IHC is good practice for
us kids. This is not true. The value
of Any student government is
measured in how much is contrib-
uted-by the student to the ,group
and by the group to the student."
Concerning SGC, he remarked
that it "need not. be an extra-
curricular activity without mean-
ing. Any thought of SGC as a
training ground for democracy
shows no understanding of its po-
tential for contribution to the
University. Such a feeling toward
SGC is meaningless if not detri-
Hopping to (and on) honor-
aries, Ashton growled, "They have
become a sterile tradition on the
campus. I think their initiations
are ludicrous for University men.
Such exhibitions would never be
tolerated if they were performed
by social fraternities.
"The concept of honoraries is
wrong. I don't think it follows
that because men become mem-
bers of a group and share secrets
in silence, that they can work to-
gether any better. It always seems
ironic to me that a concept of re-
striction is defended for the free-
dom it can afford."
Leaping from the frying pan
into the fire, he continued, "I
think the University should take
steps to de-emphasize football.
There is nothing wrong with ath-
letic scholarships, but I would
rather be proud of my school be-
cause of scholastics than because
of its football team,."
Jumping from that fire into
another one, Bob made one brief
remark about women. "I wish
they didn't like me so much."
A local female laughed and hit
him- with a coke bottle.

Lebanon's ability to resist Com-
munist propaganda can b' traced
to its distinct democratic orienta-
tion, Elias Kawar observed Thurs-
day during his one-day visit to
Kawar, chief of programming
for the film division of the United
States Information Service in
Beirut maintained that Western
propaganda devices have been
able to successfully counter 75
per cent of the Soviet line. A cer-
tain part of this success can be
attributed to the USIS, he added.
But there is still a great deal
to be done to destroy the false im-
pression that some Lebanese gain
of the United States from books,
and ilovies. The idea that this
country is "racketeer-ridden is
one false notion'- that, must be
cleared up, Kawar explained.
Aided by Visit
"My three-week visit to tlie
United States will enable me to
further my understanding of this
country and communicate it to
my people," Kawar said. Pointing
out that the United States isn't
completely enthralled with the
desire to develop rockets and oth-
er nuclear weapons and is inter-
ested in promoting peace will be
one of my duties when I return to
Lebanon, he added.
"Too often, people assess the
USIS on the basis of demonstra-
tions against the libraries," he
said. The real state of affairs,
though, is shown in USIS records,
which indicate the increased use
of its facilities over a period of
Discussing ways in which the
United States can strengthen its
moral position, Kawar mentioned

people of this country are not
against Arab unity," Kawar com-
