FIRESTONE STORES TEXAS AVE. & POSTOFFICE ST. — BRYAN, TEXAS Communication Key To Good Marriage By David Middlebrooke Battalion Managing Editor Communication between part ners, more than anything else, is necessary for a successful mar riage and one that is meaningful, an Austin marriage and family relations counselor said Wednes day night. Dr. Robert Ledbetter spoke at the second session of the four- part Marriage Forum sponsored by the Student ‘Y’ Association. Forum programs are presented on consecutive Wednesdays. Ledbetter said that lack of communication is the “most single basic problem" in marriages that go wrong. “You have to know how the other feels," he stressed. “Don’t be afraid to share your feelings, either. You’re headed for trouble if you don’t.” Other ingredients in the recipe for a meaningful marriage, Led better said, are understanding, acceptance and affection. “By acceptance,” he said, “I mean don’t marry with the thought of changing your spouse." Affection, he said, is love and the expression of it, and is some thing that should grow through out the marriage. Affection al ways includes romantic love, he said. The Austin counselor cautioned against “dirty" fighting in mar riage, saying that it is far better to fight “clean.” A person fights dirty, he said, when he starts calling his partner names, and bringing up problems that he has been saving for just such an occasion as a fight. Some times, he said, physical blows are delivered. It is possible, though, for couples to fight if they’ll do it in a clean fashion, Ledbetter as serted. Clean fighting, he ex plained, means keeping the dis cussion focused on the problem at hand and trying to find a solu tion. Couples should watch, he warned, and make certain the fight doesn’t come to the point of name-calling or blows. Besides fighting, couples have other ways of “getting at” each other, Ledbetter said. They use different things as weapons against each other. Among these weapons, he said, sex, money, food, in-laws, child ren, mutual friends, religion and common goals or interest. In each case where one of the weapons is being used, he said, the particular weapon being used is not itself the problem. It is only manifestation of deeper problems, more serious ones. For example, he said, a couple might try to work out their problems through their children, each spouse trying to use the children against the other spouse. Davenport, Benson (Continued from page 1) which we have in this country should be available to and ap plicable to all citizens, students or non-students,” he said. Benson said that when a stu dent enters college he does not give up his basic rights, however it is a voluntary association. There is no basic right to enter any college. All universities as sess a student’s potential and decide whether he should be ad mitted. All have certain rules that students are expected to adhere to. “When a student is admitted to a university he is duty-bound to obey the rules and regulations of that institution,” he said. “He certainly has the right to protest those regulations if he does not like them and try to get them changed.” To maintain freedom of ac tion, Dr. Davenport said, people can appeal to force, tolerance or selfish interests of others. “An appeal to force is based on the principle that “might makes right,” he said. “I person ally don’t want to live in a world where we resolve moral conflicts by power struggles.” “An appeal to tolerance rests on “when in Rome, do as the Ro mans do. “I wonder,” he said, “if the Romans ever said, “If you don’t like it here, the Appian Way runs both ways?” A student, Benson said, has the right of access to the faculty and should have the right to evaluate the quality of education and teaching. Responsibilities also go along with these rights, he said. A student has the responsibili ty to obey the laws of his coun try, he said, and should conform to regulations. He also has the responsibiilty to look at all rea sonable views of controversial is sues. During the question and an swer period, they were asked about a student voice in the selec tion of a new president. Benson said, to loud laughter, that if a group of students were to take recommendations to the board of directors that they would be glad to listen. “If you have any proposals,” he said, “bring them forward.” Dr. Davenport suggested that a faculty-student committee se lect a list of four candidates for the board to choose from. He said that the faculty was already making efforts to present rec ommendations to the board. The meeting was disrupted only once, minutes before it was to be adjourned. Maskal had been berating the audience for lack of action on the students part in attempting to change the university. “You are to blame,” he said. “There’s been constant bitching, but you don’t use the channels. The CCOC has gone through channels, but there are only 10 of us. You are as much at fault as the faculty and administration. “Acting President A. R. Lue- Page 4 THE BATTALION College Station, Texas Thursday, April 16,1811) TH READY FOR PLANTING—Mrs. Harvey Winslow, green house keeper, and William L. Vitopil, superintendent of grounds, examine greenhouse flowers which will be planted by May 15. More than 30,000 plants were grown in the new Grounds and Maintenance Department Greenhouse during the winter for spring planting. Flowers Bloom In Test Garden The Floral Test Garden has 6,300 tulips and a variety of other early spring flowers cur rently in peak bloom, reports William L. Vitopil, superinten dent of university grounds and garden supervisor. Two-thirds of the half-acre Z- shaped garden is filled with color, Vitopil said. The garden is locat ed east of Kyle Field on Houston Street. “We have 126 varieties of tu lips, 104 varieties of petunias and a large display of pansy, cal endula and stock flowers blos soming at the present time,” Vitopil mentioned. He said the garden will be re planted with spring-summer an nuals before May 15. New plant ings will include petunia, age- ratum, snapdragon, salvia, coleus, geranium, dallea, lockspur, cel- soia, amanthus, vica, calendula, pansy, allysum, begonia, chrys anthemum and daisy. Vitopil pointed out most of the new plantings will come from the 3,300-square-foot greenhouse com pleted in October at the Grounds and Maintenance Department headquarters near Hensel Park. More than 30,000 flowers have been grown in the greenhouse for transplanting in the test gardet and other campus flower beds. j| Vitopil declared the test gar den will have approximately 7011 different varieties blooming by mid-May or early June. “By commencement we vril have a riot of color,” said AH landscape architect Robert Rud er, who heads the overall campti landscape program. Sidewalks and a sprinkler sjv tern were completed in Novell' her, allowing all-weather viewiij of the test garden. The Floral Test Garden m funded by the Board of Director! in August, 1968. Also scheduled this year ii planting for the All-Ameriti flower testing program, a re search project that leads to Al America Selection designation. “Growing flowers under fiell conditions exposes the plants to the public. They can look over our garden and decide what they want to grow at home,” Rucker added, “and we will find out which plants are best suited f« this particular area.” HADA mates force i Texas decke is continuing President (Earl) Rudder’s open door poli cy,” he said. “A small group can not bring about change, but a large one can.” At that point, one man stood up and shouted, “Why don’t you go to t.u. where you can have a system like you want?” The audience yelled him down. Sandy Broder then read a pe tition asking that charges against the students taking part in tht | peace rally Wednesday afternooi j be dropped. j He asked for 40 volunteers to j collect signatures for them ani had about half that number » | spond. As the audience left, they wert asked to contribute to a fund to pay the fine for Earl Brown, a non-student arrested at the rally.
