The newly elected president of
the Inter-Quadrangle Council
aims to launch his administration
from the tightly-knit organiza-
tional base created by retiring IQC
President Curtis Huntington, '64.
John Eadie, '65, a history major
from Livonia, comes well versed
in Huntington's policies. He served
that administration as vice pres-
The Huntington administration
was forced to start from scratch
and totally reshape the structure
of IQC, he explains.
As one example, Eadie notes
that when Huntington took office
in the fall, he was confronted with
a non-existent committee struc-
ture. However, under his leader-
ship the organization solidified
and provided a committee system
geared to expansion.
One of the main areas in which
IQ must expand is communica-
tions, Eadie feels. "We are going
to make a concentrated effort to
get people at all levels aware of
the existence of our organization
and its functions."
As part of this program, IQC is
expanding both Sthe size and dis-
tribution of its newsletter. Eadie
and the rest of the officers also
intend to develop more personal
communication with house presi-
Dispel Vague Notions
In the past, many presidents
have had only a vague notion of
what IQC was doing, he notes.
"We will try to give them a first-
hand knowledge of the various
issues to make them fetI closer to
Another plan involves encour-
aging communication among the
various houses. Many ideas that
have been successful in one could
be used with equal success in oth-
'We also intend to stimulate in-
terest in our organization by
means of a stepped up informa-
tion program during the first
weeks of the semester which
would outline what activities the
quadrangle and IQC are offering.
Eadie views the quadrangle sys-
tem as a middle ground between
fraternities and apartments.
"We can never equal the close
group relationships offered by fra-
ternities nor can we ever equal
the independence offered by an
apartment. However, we can offer
some c f both.
The various houses should be
able to increase spirit and activi-
ties. However, the increasing num-
ber of freshmen coming into the
residence halls each year may
force upperclassmen out of the
system, thus removing much of
the continuity and leadership.
"One possible solution may rest
in cutting residence hall contracts
to one semester. This would allow
those who are not interested in
house activities to move out, leav-
ing a nucleus of interested men."
IQC also intends to discuss with
Interfraternity Council the effect
of rush on the quadrangle system.
"We have found that first semes-
ter rush has created problems by
immediately cutting into spirit

Most forms of animal life dis-
play an obvious tendency to de-
fend their own territory against
intrusion, Prof. William H. Burt
of tle- zoology department told a
There are many definitions of
home territory among animals,
but "the one I like best is that
of G. K. Noble, who refers to it
as 'any defended area'," Prof. Burt
Prof. Burt further defined an
animal's home range as that area
it normally covers in the course
of its life-activities. "The part of
its home range that an animal
might try to protect then would
be its territory," he said.f
In general, an animal will es-
tablish a 'headquarters' in the
form of a nest or burrow and
then set up its territory around
Among cliff-nesting sea birds,
he noted that va'ch bird of the
thousands which .nhabit a cliff
Swill live on one small part of the
rock, no closer than pecking dis-
tance to the other birds in the
community. They will fish together
for food, but each bird will return
to its own particular spot Z
Among some animals, such as
chipmunks, the tendency is for
individual animals to set up ter-
ritories for themselves and their
amilies, Prof. Burt noted. Among
others, such as prairie dogs or
howler monkeys, clan groupings
will act similarly to the individual
chipmunk in matters of territorial
Why do animals behave this
way? "There might be several
possible answers to this question,
Coeducationai housing has gone
over well, Eadie feels, however, it
has raised some problems in stu-
"The governing bodies in the
coeducational housing units are
mixed, yet they must send repre-
sentatives to two separate bodies,
IQC and Assembly Association.'
These bodies do not coordinate all'
their actions which has thus, at
times, made it unclear for both
South Quadrangle and Mary
Markley where authority lies.
"If coed housing is here to stay,
IQC and Assembly will need to
meet these problems." Eadie does
not anticipate any formal action
in the near future, however.
Eadie is' not yet sure what his
role on Student Government
Council will be. Declining to clas-
sify himself as either a liberal
or conservative, he does feel that
SGC should allow IQC to act first
on affairs concerning men in the
"For instance, the recent SGC
study of laundry service in the
quadrangles ought to have been
left to IQC."

Insures Food Supply
But perhaps this behavior in-
sures an adequate food supply for
the inhabitants of a region, Prof.
Burt suggested. This however
would not be a good explanation
in the case of the cliff-nesting sea
birds, he said. Their food source
is the water.
Prof. Burt commented that by
having individual living quarters
spaced farther apart, :.here is less
danger of epidemics and preda-
He noted that the motivation
could lie in preventing inbreed-
ing within a population, since re-
cently matured yroung would be
less likely to mate with close rela-
tives if the rules of territorial
rights compelled them to go out
and seek their own territories.
No set answer to tlhis mystery
has yet been found that would
account for any and all of the
myriad forms of territorial be-
havior known to naturalists. A
definitive explanation of such be-
havior is still in the future, Prof.

leased the following list of women
pledged by the 21 sororities on
