Arnold Discusses Directions,
Unity, Communication, Goals
Dean Victor Arnold, who wUl
come to St. Andrews this sum
mer as a replacement for re
tiring Dean Davidson, visited
the campus just before spring
break. The following is l)ased
on exerpts from an interview
with him conducted by Sara Lee.
Dean Arnold, a soft-spoken
personable man, has had about
eighteen years of experience
as a Dean. He says very em
phatically that “I’d rather be
an administrator in a small
college where you’re working
with people than at a large
university where you’re work
ing with paper. I get along best
tn people relationships.”
At the same time, he vis
ualizes the job of a Dean to
be "where the action is.”
“The whole idea is to supervise
the academic program and see
that you have the best. You
find the way to plug in where
you’re most effective.”
He pointed that a Dean must
adjust himself to new people
and a new environment and they
at the same time adjust to
him. “There are a lot of things
that I would want to do dif
ferently because of my per
sonality. You try to do what
you can do best and most ef
fectively and you try to make
your emphasis on a Dean’s
job be an emphasis in the area
in which you have the most
talent.”

Code Committee
Opens Meeting
The Code of Responsibility
Implementation Committee Is
planning an open meeting for
Thursday, April 29, at 3; 30
p.m. In the conference room
off the main lounge of the Col
lege Union. The purpose of this
meeting is to provide oppor
tunity for any and all mem
bers of the St. Andrews com -
munlty to voice their opinions
concerning the Code of Res
ponsibility.
Particular sections of the
Code under consideration at this
time will be those dealing with
drugs and personal privacy and
safety. Prior to making any
recommendations as to policy
concerning these matters, the
Code committee wishes to hear
from students and others con
cerned.
was given Its first major per
formance in London in 1967 by
Laurence Olivier’s theatre. It
also enjoyed a highly praised
showing on Broadway. The
Players are presenting this co
medy of the absurd on the oc
casion of the official opening of
St. Andrews’ newly renovated
theatre.
Rosencrantz (David Dolge)
and Gulldenstern (Hugh Helm)
are friends of Hamlet in Shake
speare’s play. They are minor
figures and are used by King
Caludlus (John Biba) and Queen
Gertrude (Linda Logan) to try
to manipulate the future of
Prince Hamlet. Steppard has
taken these two obscure char
acters and placed the spotlight
on them. Rosencrantz and Gull
denstern try to puzzle out the
purposes for which they have
been brought to the Danish
Court. In the midst of the mo
dern farcical treatment of
Shakespearean characters the
two young visitors wonder a-
bout the absurdity of trying to
live in the midst of an unde
fined life.
Thus two characters who
dwell In imaginary Denmark
actually populate contemporary
society. They are modern blank
figures trying to understand
their blankness. Their lives
are complicated when they en
counter a troop of strolling

Dean Arnold noted that he had
had several discussions and a-
greed with Dr. Hart about di
rections In which the college
should be going. “It’s merely
a matter of trying to make sure
that this Is not one of the
small, private colleges in the
decade ahead that folds because
of lack of students or lack of
funds.” This would point direct
ly to a strong academic pro
gram that would attract stu
dents and faculty as well as
support. He noted that he ex-
I>ected to work with others in
getting further funding to St.
Andrews.
A strong positive reaction
came on a query about students
on faculty committees. In the
past, Arnold commented that he
had worked very hard “trying
to get students involved In the
governance of the college, on
the policy-making bodies, to
make sure that the freshness
of the student Ideas are
listened to.” Communication
between faculty and students
should be open at all times;
students need to feel that they
are a part of the “enterprise.”
“I’ve never worried about stu
dent involvement. It’s always
been helpful in my experience
rather than something that
slows things down.”
Arnold called attention to the
necessity for faculty recruit
ment to t)e conducted In terms
of the best people who have
proven themselves to t>e good
classroom teachers. For a col
lege such as this, it Is the teach
ing that must tie evaluated. ‘ ‘You
want people that are good teach
ers and who have scholarly In
terests, because they're trying
to sell scholarship, and who
have In some the type of per
sonality and attitudes that fit
Into the social environment you
have here.”
What, then, about tenure?
That, Arnold pointed out, is a
professional achievement and a
protection at the same time.
Without tenure, older, highly
paid faculty members would be
at the mercy of administrators
who could decide to drop them
and pick up a younger man for
less money to save on their
budgets. “It is part of human
rights and dignities to make
sure that you aren’t exploited
by an institution or by a busi
ness.” But for the problem
of faculty who have tenure but
have lost their “zip,” there
is no real answer except to
keep alter that person. “I think
a program has to be set up
so that faculty are constantly
reviving and revising their
courses and teaching new
courses to keep their enthu-
siam.”
The drug situation is one in
which attitudes have changed
radically in recent months.
“It’s one in which you have to
keep an open mind and your de
cisions have to be based on
what Is the liest action for the
community, and for the indi
vidual, if you can balance the
two. I don’t know.” It would
be naive to believe that there
would not be any experimenta
tion, even with the laws and
rules on possession. Arnold
noted ttiat there was no real
solution to the problem, but
called for consistent and care
ful action.
The thrust of Victor Arnold’s
conce[)t of his position as Dean
in relating to the college can
be easily summed up. He will
work with people opening up
communications and helping to
move the college In positive
directions. “Unless the whole
college community wants to go
somewhere, you’re not going
to get there. The best way Is to
agree on It In the beginning and
you can get there, If you work
together, If It’s a Joint goal.”
