I HC Report
Given; Tells
Of Issues
Inter-House Council yesterday
released a 24-page report on its
Residence Halls Conference held
Jan. 7.
The reports, sent to all delegates
and guests to the conference, pro-
vide a permanent record of the
pertinent points brought out in all
12 discussion meetings.
Of all the problems discussed,
under the theme, "Let's Improve
the House," that of the academic
and intellectual phases of the
house recurred most often, dur-'
ing at least five of the meetings.
One cf the phases of' the aca-
demic problem was to what extent
the house and its members should
encourage culture.
One of the groups, discussing
"The Individual Reconsidered,"
suggested that the house "subtly"
introduce its members to culture.
The same group suggested that
this be accomplished by providing
good magazines, hi-fi sets andre-'
cordings, libraries with art books
and popular novels as well as ref-
erence works, displays of art or
photography, and bull sessions.
It also hoped that houses would
invite musical groups and speakers
to the house. They continued ,to
say that the studsents should be
willing to carry this program out.-
Another problem uncovered at
the same session was that most
people do not like to admit they
like these "high brow" activities.
However, they felt that living
in the halls was in itself cultural.
It was added that there might be
some danger of pseudo-intellec-
tuals, who would give the wrong
attitudes to students.,
During a discussion of the Mi-
chigan House Plan at another of
the day's meetings, delegates tookj
a slightly different view of the.!
intellectualism problem.
They felt that intellectual de-
velopment in the house should be
strictly on an individual basis, with
each student finding for himself
the available cultural facilities.
Other problems of the academic
phase of quad life hashed out dur-
ing the discussion periods included
the value of academic counseling
and who should give it.
The only resolution made at the
conference, that IHC should es-
tablish a permanent orientation
committee, was made into a motion
and passed at the last IHC meet-



Prof. Edmund Wooding of the
journalism department explained
he left advertising work after "I
came to the realization that all I
was getting out of advertising was
Wooding, a slow, soft-spoken
man, is credited with such slo-
gans as "The Life You Save May
Be Your Own," "Luckies Have
Gone to War," and "Give the Gift
that Keeps on Giving."
However, he is quick to point
out, you can never be positive you
were the first one to hit upon a
slogan. When he wrote in a maga-
zine that he had authored "Give
the Gift that Keeps on Giving"
for RCA-Victor, the magazine was
soon flooded with counter-claims
to the phrase.
'Couldn't Find a Formula'
"I could never find a formula,"
Wooding said when asked how he
comes across his ideas. "I do my
best creative work early in the
Wooding said he went into ad-
vertising the same way many peo-
ple do-through a combination of
circumstances and chance.
"I'm a product of the depres-
sion. When I got out of college
there was the problem of finding
a job and you weren't too choosy
what it was.
"Originally I wanted to go into
foreign service, then into the ho-
tel business, and finally I wound
up in advertising," he said.
The Full Picture
"I wouldn't discourage anyone
from going into advertising, but
I would want him to see the full
picture," he continued. "From the
outside itmay look glamorous and
exciting," abut he explained there
is more to it than that.
A good creative writer even in
advertising will be a poet at heart.
"As a writer he will feel his first
responsibility is to his readers,"
Wooding said. There is the inevit-
able conflict between the writer's
social responsibility and the Board
of Directors.
"The biggest lure advertising of-
fers is money," he commented. "Ef-
forts are judged by the hard critic
of the cash register. But a writer
has to be sensitive to an audience.
He has to feel their worries, their
needs, their aspirations, their
'Horrible Dilemma'
"Then you have this horrible
dilemma: well, what are you go-
ing to do?" Wooding explained life
for advertisers was like grey

hounds chasing a mechanical rab-
bit, except the rabbit has dollar
bills stuffed in its ears.
"Your bank account may be
bulging, but your soul is a penny
bank," he said.
Wooding has three children.

doubts it will be advertising. "I
have some suspicions of what Pete
might do," he explained, "but I
wouldn't want him to read them.
"Bill has shown some interest
in advertising," he said. Bill is
his 13-year-old who has a fasci-

zie's passion is Roy Rogers. She's
a little love-bug with six-shooters."
Wooding was dropped by a com-
pany the day after Billy was born.
He explains it was actually a co-
incidence, "but it seemed to point
out the inhumanity of it.
'Ruthlessness Not Typical'
"I don't think this ruthlessness
is typical of the whole business
community. In the agency world
you live from day to day almost
at the whim of the client.
"Somewhere along the line the
advertisers are going to have to
wake up." Advertising is typi-
fied by mediocracy, Wooding said.
"While the cost of advertising has
gone up, the effectiveness has
stayed at the same low level."
Advertising's ineffectiveness is
not due to a misunderstanding of
techniques-advertisers have com-
plete mastery of technique-it is
due to a misunderstanding of the
people. "All they have to note is
that while their income has in-
creased, so has their education.
Personal Reward
"I find in teaching what I hoped
for an4 what I was seeking. I find
in it the personal reward - this
grows stronger as the years go on.
"Teaching is an art and it takes
a long time to learn. The learn-
ing process is a terrific challenge.
"Most advertising writers have
feelings of inferiority-they sense
they're not good enough to write
