Robertson Plans
Leave of Absence
Associate Dean James H. Robertson of the literary college will
be on leave next semester for a busy six months of writing and
His main writing effort, Dean Robertson said, will be directed
at a chapter on honors programs for a book which the National
Inter-University Committee on the Superior Student wants to publish.
A member of the Committee, Dean Robertson hopes to discuss
some of the general defining criteria of the honors student. He will
also sketch the historical emergence of honors programs, from the
" time when there was opposition to
even identifying the intellectually
alive student.
"However, it is not terribly ma-
h terial just what specific criteria
{ are used to choose the honors stu-
dent. It is more important to ex-
amine how he can be encouraged
fand moved along, and so the
5 . chapter will not attempt to set
definite selection standards."
He also plans to work on a book
on academic counseling which he
has been considering for about
five years. The work would center
around the theme that academic
counseling is no more or less
than a primary teaching respon-
sibility, not a clerical matter."

Greeks Alter
Rush Plan.
Personnel Director
Sorority houses have approved
by more than a two-thirds major-
ity, a new rushing plan, which
will make rush more unstructured.
It will go into effect in 1965.
The proposal had been approv-
ed last week by the Panhellenic
Association Presidents' Council
and was submitted to individual
houses with each sorority receiv-
ing one vote.'
The major change in next year's
rush will be to cut from five-
four sets and to have the two
middle sets operating on an un-
structured basis.
Patricia Lutes, '64Ed, Panhel'
executive vice-president, said yes-
terday that one objection houses
raised was that they would like
to know specifically which night
rushees will be coming during the
unstructured sets. Under the pro-
posed plan the houses would know
which women were coming, but
not the specific night.
"One possible change in the new
structure might be that we would
let the house also know which
night women were returning. The+
plan will now be given to the rush
chairmen, who will work out the
details and consider suggestions
for change."
Miss Lutes noted that there was+
also some skepticism about switch-'
ing from five to four parties, but
most sororities thought this was a
beneficial change, because it al-{
lows for longer parties during the
middle sets.
Elizabeth Leslie coordinator of
affiliated, associated and off-cam -
pus housing, said recently that this
new plan is the result of a long
development and continued evalu-
ation of rush. "This change is in'
anticipation of increasing enroll-
ments and still maintaining the
concept Lhat houses should not
become too much larger," she

Wide-Ranging Dialogue
"The academic counselor should
be able to carry on an intelligent
dialogue with the student aboutl
his plans, interests, and choices;
he must be able to answer ques-
tions about the spirit of a field,
not only about the statistics of
degree requirements.
"The book will seek to develop
ways in which programs of this
kind can be structured and ad-
ministered effectively,' he said.
The book will also try to an-
swer questions on who should be
doing counseling and on some of
the specifics of setting up coun-
seling programs. Thus Dean Rob-
ertson will recommend adequate
administrative and clerical sup-
port behind faculty counselors and
some kind of centralized opera-
tion where all essential informa-
tion would be readily available.
A good deal of his time will be
spent in travel in Europe with his
family, Dean Robertson explained.
He will be interested in learning
more about the administrative
structure of various foreign uni-
versities and especially in finding
out how they are responding to
growth problems.
Plans Talks
In addition, he plans to talk di-
rectly with overseas representa-
tives of various American univer-
sities which have foreign study
programs, and to visit with ad-
ministrators and students involved
with the University's own pro-
grams in France and England.
He will also talk with adminis-
trators at Freiburg University in
Germany, where the University
plans to establish an exchange
program next yeatr.
If time allows, Dean Robertson
also hopes to begin work on a book
directed to parents and students
about what they can expect from
college. On a lighter level than
the other two endeavors, the work
would "attempt to put in some
meaningful context the nature of
the college experience, the kinds
of choices students will have to
make and the consequences of
those choices," he said.

privileges and/or suspension of

Congressional source said yester-
day the administration is con-
sidering a "complete reorganiza-
tion and a real shakeup" in the
operations of the Alliance for
Progress program.
The source, who refused to be
quoted by name, said a reorgani-
zation is under study "in the be-
lief that it can do its job better
if changes are made" in both its
top echelon and its methods of
He said it was premature to say,
as have some published reports,
that Teodoro Moscoso, now coor-
dinator of the development pro-
gram, will be dropped by President
Lyndon B. Johnson.
New Post
But the source said there is a
possibility Moscoso might replace
Delesseps S. Morrison as United
States Ambassador to the Organ-
ization of American States. Morri-
son gave up that post to run for
governor of Louisiana.
Also, the source said, Moscoso
might be named to a new position

Brazil at a conference attended by
