OFFICERS EXPLAIN:
Hinsdale Justifies IHC Withdrawal

By DAVID BLOOMGARDEN
The president of Hinsdale
House, William Anderson, '61E,
declared that "we don't think our
action was juvenile," regarding
his house's withdrawal from the
Inter-House Council.
Hinsdale House formally with-
drew from IHC last week.
4 Anderson and Charles Lichtig-
man, '62, vice-president of this
East Quadrangle house, said that
Hinsdale's action was not hastily
conceived. They pointed out that
over ninety man hours were spent
Inquiring into IBC by the house
council.

Evaluates Facts

Before making a decision, the
4 council: had evaluated the facts,
and background of the organiza-
tion. Members of the council also
talked to former IHC president
Robert Ashton, '59, IHC president
Boren Chertkov, '60, and IHC Ex-
ecutive Vice-President Boyd Con-
rad, '61,

was fulfilling' its purpose. Accord-
ing to the report published by the
Hinsdale House Council, IHC is
supposed to co-ordinate the acti-
vities of the houses and quad-
rangles, represent its members
(those living in the three quad-
rangles) to the faculty and ad-
ministration, and to establish
service projects benefiting the
member houses.
IHC Coordination Poor
"Our house believes that IHC
co-ordination is very poor." Lich-
tigman then cited an example in
which the first IHC Poetry Read-
ing was to be held in the Benzing-
er Library of East Quad with Prof.
Barrows speaking; Although the
professor arrived no one else did.
The " vice-president said that
neither the head librarian had
been notified nor had any publi-
city been posted concerning the
reading. Furthermore the East
Quad Council had been told that
the reading was to be held a week
later.
A considerable part of the Hins-
dale report involved the IHC
budget. According to Hinsdale's
computations, approximately 75
per cent of the IHC budget was
spent on its own maintenance.
"Out of the remaining budget
of $220, $180 was used by social
and scholarship committees, proj-
ects, the Kidston Scholarship, and
Judiciary forms," Anderson said.
He declared that unless Hins-
dale House establishes the highest
grade point, it will see nothing of
the scholarship.,
Judging from the money spent
for public relations, the IHC

.Anderson
hind their
question of

said the reason be-
action involWed the
whether or not IHC

should be well known on campus,
the two officers declared. How-
ever, by and large, the members
of Hinsdale House know close to
nothing of the organization. It
never even comes close to touch-
ing them as a central governing
body should. They noted that the
residence houses have the dubious
advantage of maintaining two
higher governments and unless
smoothly co-ordinated, the system
is a shambles.
Suggests Solution
Anderson suggested as one solu-
tion to the problem a quad co-
ordinating committee with repre-
sentatives from each quad coun-
cil. This committee could deal
with the problems of co-ordina-
tion with the administration
(such as representation on the
Board of Governors) without the
inefficiencies and expense of a
large bureaucratic. organization.
Before deciding to withdraw
from the organization, Hinsdale
felt the best way to improve IHC
was to present their views and
point out the problem which they
felt existed in the organization.
Lichtigman stated that "attempts
to bring out views which we be-
lieve to be constructive were la-
beled 'destructive' by various
people."
Approves Withdrawal
"However, he continued, "in
view of the past ineffectiveness of
certain previous IHC committees
and the failure of IHC to serious-
ly consider similar complaints of
other houses, ' we felt that like
treatment would be given to the
Hinsdale report"
Hinsdale approved its with-
drawal after deciding that it was
receiving little benefit from IHC
as constituted. They felt this was
the only constructive action now
to be taken -- constructive in that
it would stimulate thinking about
IHC's worth. Anderson concluded
by saying that their "departure
from IHC is most certainly not
an indication of a lack of interest
in improvement of residence hall
government. Hinsdale remains
ready to support and participate
in any organization which it feels
competent to deal with the inter-
house problems that arise."

Somets Ask
Professor
TO Write
By LINDA GOLDEN
Professor Thomas Winner of the
Slavic language department may
well be the first American asked
to write for a Russian ' journal
since World War II.
His article, "Chekhov in Ameri-
ca," will appear next year in the
Literaturnoe Nasledstvo, a journal
put out by the Soviet Academy of
Sciences.
In honor of the 100th anniver-
sary of Chekhov's birth, the jour-
nal will include letters, sketches,
criticisms and other a unpublished
works written about Chekhov or
by the playwright himself. Prof.
Winner's article will be in the
section of the journal dealing with
Chekhov's reception in countries
outside of the Soviet Union.
Exchange Brings Understanding
Prof. Winner's article is another
example of the fact that the Rus-
sian attitude toward cultural ex-
change with the United States is
becoming more liberal.
The professor stated "The Rus-
sians are very interested in what
we are doing. Of course, exchange
is to our benefit and to theirs too.
It certainly brings about more
understanding."
Cultural exchange between Rus-
sia and America will become more
frequent, Prof. Winner predicted.
Approached Last Summer
The Russians approached Prof.
Winner last summer when he was
attending a conference in Mos-
cow. He was both "honored and
pleased" when they asked him to
contribute to the volume on Chek-
hov.
Two years ago Prof. Winner
taught a course on Chekhov at the
Sorbonne in Paris and in this
capacity was able to meet Euro-
peans who were also interested in
Russian literature. And so, the
Russians came to know of him as
an American specialist on Chekhov
and chose him to write the article.
Admires Playwright's Skill
Prof. Winner first decided to
specialize in Chekhov because he
"greatly admired the playwright's
skill" and also because there was
not yet much work done on him.
Next fall Prof. Winner will teach
a course on Chekhov here at the
University.
