[R] Inherit names ...

No doubt an easy answer to this exists.
I have a data frame which comprises 4 matrices and 2 vectors:
year(1024,6),growth(1024,6),ycens(1024,6),gcens(1024,6),yinit(1024),ginit(1024)
The names of the 26 columns get denoted as y.1 to y.6, g.1 to g.6, yc.1 to
yc.6, gc.1 to gc.6, yi and gi as these are the internal names.
I wish to make a subset of the data using the logical vector R1(length
1024) so that only the cases where R1 is TRUE are included. I can do this
by:
R1data<-alldata[R1]
that gives a vector 7800 long (there are 300 TRUE's in R1) so I do
R1data<-as.data.frame(alldata[R1])
which gives a matrix 7800x1
so I write:
R1data<-alldata[R1];dim(R1data)<-c(300,26)
which gives the data in the right form except I haven't inherited the
names at all.
(a) How to do that?
(b) Is there a convenient one-liner (or more) where I can just write
something like the first expression (which is intuitive) but where it can
inherit the column names (and possibly further attributes)
(c) Is there a way within a data frame to refer conveniently to a group of
columns (ie one of the constituent matrices in the case above)?
TIA
