OT AN IRON HAND LEADER:
Warrick Leads Organizations with Diplomacy, Tact
By DAVID TARR
When Robert Warrick, '57E,
was handed the Inter-House
Council presidential gavel on his
election a year ago, he smiled shy-
ly dnd began to make the appro-
priate remarks of thanks and pro-
mises of better things to come.
He spoke in °a. quiet voice, one
often difficult to hear distinctly in
a large room, choosing his words
slowly and carefully.
The next few meetings were tur-
bulent in wake of a Residence Hall
room and board rate increase. Ois-
cussion was vigorous and the
meetings, at times, disorganized.
Had Warrick chosen to bang the
gavel harder and more frequently,
those and other meetings might
have run smoother, might have
seen more accomplished.
That he did not choose to run
the meetings with an iron hand is
indicative of the subtly persuasive
person that is Warrick. It is most
unlikely he has ever wanted to run
things with an iron hand.
Many of his cblleagues say he is
not an outwardly dynamic person.
They prefer to call him diplomatic.
Warrick stepped down from his
position as IHC president about a
month ago leaving an organization

IHC began the year with a. com-
pletely revamped structure and a
new constitution. "These changes
have made operation difficult at
times this year," he said, "but
overall we've been able to develop
IHC fairly well."
People conjkected with IHC re-
port this year has been one of
trial and error. They say the diffi-
culty in making a new organiza-
tion work has required a certain
amount of patience, flexability
and caution from the top officials.
When Warrick came to office
in IHC,. he did not lack back-
ground in student government and
Residence Halls affairs.
It all started back in the fresh-
man year, the only year he was not
president of some organization. He
did get elected to Strauss House
Council and moved up to be its
president the following year.

should remark "I wouldn't .have
taken the IHC presidency if I
didn't believe it and student gov-

slow and tedious - in many areas,

As an engineer, Warrick is
somewhat an unusual phenome-
non in student activities.
He thinks the main reason there
are not more engineers in student
activities is only a lack of time.

ferent from the literary school
student and he's not always in-
clined to go so far off on cloud

On a four and one-half -year
course, he will be back next fall
for more academic work.
He won't-come back to the neat-
ly cluttered desk in the IHC of-
fices, he may let up on smoking
(he said he did very little of it be-
fore becoming IC president), he
won't have to contend with food
demonstrations or room and board
increases. But he won't be done
with Residence Halls - one close
friend' predicts he will be back
pushing forward with some of his
long-range ideas and plans.

ACTIVE ENGINEER - Robert Warrick, retiring Inter-House
Council president, is one of the small clan of engineering students
that find time to participate in student government.
From there, the next step -- in
his junior year - was the presi-
dency of East Quadrangle. Every-
thing was climaxed this year with
the IHC post which carries an ex-
of ficio seat on Student Govern-

er," the slightly-built engineering
student said. "working at the En-

as a laboratory assistant."
If Warrick has any distinctive
characteristic it probably is the
jargon °he uses profusely. Those
who know him have come to ex-
pect an emphatic "Right .. .!" to
precede many of his sentences.
What follows is usually in a
monotone , and frequently exten-
sive, including many involved de-
This characteristic is also seen
in his tendency to view a problem
from a long-range perspective.'

a long-range study that will probe
all the possible areas connected
with a problem.
