Counseling Shows Informality
Campus Forms and Sculpture
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fifth
in a six part seires on counseling
at the University.)
By ANDREW ORLIN
Informality is the key word to
describe counseling in the resi-
There are no counseling offices,
no appointments and no specially
trained personnel, Assistant Direc-
tor of Housing John Hale, noted.
"Our staff live with the stu-
dents and are able to aid them
whenever problems arise."
When difficult questions come
up, which can not be answered by
members of the staff, the student
is referred to one of the various
counseling services of the Uni-
versity. Many residence hall ad-
visors work through one or two
counselors in a particular office.
When a student has a serious
problem, the advisor will contact
that person. This allows for a clos-
er relationship between the Uni-
versity counselor and the student.
Although the titles of the staff
in the men's residence halls differ
from those used in the women's
dormitories, there is a House
Director who is assisted by Resi-
dent Counselors, Resident Assis-
tants and Undergraduate Assis-

aid in house activities and in
general act as "big sisters" to the
women. Resident Counselors and
Resident Assistants Iare graduate
students. The Resident Assistant
is in charge of closing up the
house at night.
Resident Counselors are con-
cerned with counseling students
who have problems. In addition to
being available to students with
problems, Resident Counselors
along with staff members in the
quadrangles must be alert enough
to notice student difficulties even
if the individual does not come to
them for help, Hale said. -
Even in this case, attempts are
made to have the student bring
out the problem through the means
of ordinary conversation. If this
fails, the advisor will then ap-
proach the student on the subject.
Republicans Bent F. Nielsen and
Travis R. Cash have announced'
their candidacies for the City
Council. Nielsen is the incumbent
in the fifth ward while Cash is
seeking the first ward seat now
held by Democrat Lynn W. Eley.
Most Resident Advisors have
risen in the residence hall pro-
gram from subordinate positions.
A few are hired from outside the
University on the basis of ref-j
erences and interviews. These
people are interviewed four or
five times by different people. As-
sistant Resident Advisors are<
chosen in a similar manner. '
A number of the Staff Counsel-
ors have been residents in the;
quadrangle. The Office of Student
Affairs interviews applicants and
speaks to individuals at the Uni-
versity who know them before
hiring, Hale added.
A perspective Associate Advisor
must have completed the House-
mother's Training Course. Most
of the Associate Advisors at the
University take this two week
course at the University of Ken-
tucky. They are also selected upon
a series of interviews.
"We are looking for mature wo-
men who have an interest in young
people," Hale noted.
He added that a cultural and in-
tellectual interest was very im-
portant. Hale considered a sensej
of humor an invaluable trait in
The staff for the women's resi-
dence halls are selected on the

A staff orientation program is
held in the fall. This is supple-
mented by weekly meetings
throughout the year. At the orien-t

Panels, lectures, and discussions
are held to further acquaint the_
staff with the problems that they
will be facing.
Counseling, in general, is dis-
cussed. Sch topics as how to handle
confidences, how to avoid personal
entanglements, techniques and
signs to be watched for are noted.
Stress is placed on the prejudices
of the advisors. In order to be able
to aid students, staff members
must know their own emotional
feelings, Hale commented,

'Morrison Cites Controversy
Over Propulsion Systems
By MICHAEL HYMAN
We need a large push from the
academic community to regener-
ate imagination which is now lack-
ing, Richard B. Morrison, direc-
tor of Launch Vehicles and Pro-
pulsion Programs of the National
Aeronautics and Space Adminis-
At the University chapter meet-
ing of the American Rocket Socie-
ty last week, Morrison noted the
controversy over propulsion sys-
tems. In past satellites, chemical
fuels have been used, but as big-
ger rockets are made for expand-
ed space exploration, more pow-
erful and economical fuels will be
needed. One of the alternatives to
the chemical fuel system is a nu-
clear propulsion system.
This hydrogen-nuclear propul-
sion system would use a nuclear
reactor, heating liquid hydrogen
to gaseous expanding hydrogen,
and this would power the rocket.
However, besides technological
and economic problems, there is
also a time factor. At the present
time scale, the nuclear propelled
rocket would not be ready before
1973. Also, there is the problem of
the large amount of money already
spent on the advanced chemical
Telstar, the inter-continental
communications satellite, w a s
lauded as an example of the fruits
of governmental-industry cooper-
ation. Microwave towers, which
are the bases of long-range com-
munication, cannot be expediently
built to great heights in the seas.
The obvious alternative is to
fly the towers and relay signals
from continent to continent by
bouncing them off the satellite.
Weighing 170 pounds and meas-
uring 34.5 inches in diameter, Tel-
star used a Delta rocket booster;
the satellite was framed in mag-
nesium and put in an aluminum
shell. It was then tracked by sta-
tions in England, France, Andover,
Me. and Cape Canaveral.
An interesting sidelight is the
effect that nuclear explosions have

The Medical School announced
Friday that it recently distributed
$39,260 in aid to 83 medical stu-
dents in the form of grants and
low-interest loans. The Univer-
sity ranked second in the nation
last year in the amount of aid
given to students in the medical
had on the workings of satellites.
Morrison pointed out that the
high altitude tests conducted in
the Pacific, which formed a new
low Van Allen radiation belt in
the upper reaches of the atmos-
phere, have seriously hampered
the workings of some satellites.
Telstar, however, has best. with-
stood the effects of the radiation.
Morrison, a former professor of
aeronautical engineering at the
University, then described some of
the rockets that have been and are
being used by the NASA. Among
those he mentioned were the
Scout, the Delta, the Thor-Agena
and the Centaur.
