Retiring IHC President Recalls Career

Retiring Inter-House Council
President Roger Kidston, '56L,
was born with a gavel in one hand
a copy of "Robert's Rules" in the
other and a desk piled high with
papers in front of him.
"Piloting the IHC through its
first big year has been hard work,"
Kidston admitted, pushing him-
self back from the newly acquired
steel desk in the IHC's Union of-
fices, "and it's not over yet."

ON THE table stood law school
casebooks on property, covered
with the fait tinge of dust which
Kidston says its now time to brush
Landing on campus four years
ago after a high school career
that included everything from
debate championship to break-
ing and training horses, Kid-
ston said, "I was exhausted and
set for a long vacation."
The vacation lasted only 15
weeks, however, for by his second
semester the future IHC head had
embarked on a career in quad gov'-
"The first two years I mostly
went to classes," Kidston remark-
ed, still there was time for work
in the Admissions Office, debate
and a steady climb to the quad
council in residence hall govern-

ON MARCH .15, 1951, the Sun-
day School Superintendent from
Plymouth, Mich., joined the Ma-
rine Reserves and spent that sum-
mer "my first real experience away
from home"-at the Paris Island
boot camp.
By his third year the predes-
tined law student was president
of Hayden House and East Quad,
a founder and charter member
of Quadrants, quardangle hon-
orary, and a joint chairman of
the budding Inter-house Coun-
While the rest of the campus
went home for summer last year,
Kidston picked up his books and
headed for Law School here where
he enrolled in the accelerated pro-
September foud him back at
work, this time as president of
IHC. Giving foundation and sta-
bility to the fledgling organiza-
tion of quadrangle governments
was Kidston's main task, with
membership in Michigamua and
a voting seat on the Residence1
Halls Board of Governors absorb-
ing the remainder of his time.
TAKING A broad view of the
function of residence halls in the1
University, Kidston says, "The
academic is only half the picture,
of a college education. A person
has to find his own balance be-
tween academic and other activi-
"Since people live in groups all
their lives, they've got to learn
to get along, and this is where
the residence halls or any hous-
ing unit fits in."
"The residence halls are the}
ideal place because of the highly
diff erent types and kinds of per-
sons living there," Kidston feels.;

Senior officers of the School
of Education will be elected
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and
tomorrow in a booth outside of
the Education school office, ac-
cording to John Black, '54Ed,
president of the present School
of Education senior class.
