By IRA SHOR
Prof. Theodore M. Newcomb of
the sociology and psychology de-
partments, a recent winner of a
Distinguished Service Award from
the University, says that it is his
job as a teacher to entice and to
stimulate the student's mind, to
get him excited about ideas.
In return for his efforts, he ex-
pects from the students a con-
tinued seriousness about their
work.
"I want to instill in them a
notion of owing something to
themselves and to their society,
and I desire of the students a
perseverance in their studies," he
said.
Newcomb has found that close

contact with the students is the
best method of teaching. In his
courses he strives to work togeth-
er with them often in seminars
with two or three students at a
time.
Small seminars are most use-
ful because they bring about more
task involvement from the stu-
dent, he said.
While many educators have
continually pointed to the dich-
otomy between education and re-
search, Newcomb fuses the two.
Instead of doing research by him-
self, he may include his graduate
students, who become his research
assistants.
