Make Study
The influential Student Life Committee (SLC) met Monday
night for the first time this year to begin a major study of
student housing and the quality of life in the student sector of
the St. Andrews community.
Chaired by returning chair
man David McLean, the com
mittee divided its members
among seven standing com
mittees to begin work on the
study, requested in a Sep
tember 24 letta" by Dean of
the College Victor Arnold on
behalf of the Faculty
Executive Qmimittee.
The letter, quoted in full on
Page Two, requested that the
SLC study “the Student
Housing Program, its pur
pose, structure, and non
structures and its {rfiilosophy
of Student Life,” as well as
“Student attitudes toward the
quality of Student Life ,
academic and social.”
No explanatioi was give for
the delay in action on the let
ter, which requested a report
from the SLC on November 5.
College President A.P.
Perkinson appeared before
the committee to ask the
membes to “interpret the
request as broadly as
“The study should include
the Whole Student Pa-sonnel
Services operation,” the
president said, “Are coun
seling options, formal and in
formal, sufficient? Should
there be a housing director in
a college this size? Is the
Dean of Students’ office
responsive enough?”
“I can’t quantify it,” the
President continued, “but I
believe there is a direct
relationship between the
quality of student life and a
collie’s retention of studen
ts. The repcrt you draw up
should help us clarify this
relationship and make it work
for us at St. Andrews.”
The President asked for a
report by the SLC by January
22 at the latest, so financial
support for its recom
mendations can be included in
his preliminary budget.
on Pound
On the eve of Oct. 30-the
90th birthday of the late
American poet Ezra Pound-
publisher James Laughlin
reminisced about his old
friend “Uncle Ez” at the
Second Annual Ezra Pound
Festival at St. Andrews
College in Laurinburg, N.C.
Laughlin, President of New
Directions Publishing Co.,
was a student of Pound before
becoming Pound’s publisher
in the United States. During a
seminar at St. Andrews’
Pound Festival, the noted
publisher jx-aised Pound for
his erudition, his poetry, his
insight into world economics
and his willingness to act as an
agent for many American and
European writers and artists
before they gained public
“Pound was a man of ex
traordinary generosity in
helping anyond he thought
was very gifted and talented,”
Laughlin said.
In response to those who
critize Pound’s interest in
Mussolini’s Italian fascist
regime during World War n,
Laughlin acknowledged that
Pound “cherished the illusion
that there was a good side to
Mussolini, and that Mussolini
