Dean Edmonson Says Teaching
Can Be EnjoyableLife's Work

In spite of a common belief that.
the profession of teaching is dull and
unattractive, it can be as enjoyable
a life work as any other occupation
if the person engaged in it is gen-
uinely interested in his work, Dean
James B. Edmonson of the School of
Education told a group of literary
college students yesterday, in the
third of the series of vocational lec-
Speaking on the subject of "Teach-
ing as a Profession," Dean Edmonson
pointed out that in addition to a
genuine interest in matters of scho-
larship, a candidate for teaching
should rank high in personality. As
qualities which a teacher should pos-
sess, Dean Edmonson listed coopera-
tiveness, industry, initiative, patience,
humor and tactfulness. "Unless you
can show a sympathetic interest in
the joys and sorrows of other people,"
he said, "it will be well for you to
remain out of the teaching profes-
Although at present teachers do
not generally receive high salaries in
comparison with those paid by other
professions, Dean Edmonson pointed
out that the teacherdhas the advan-
tage of a fairly good beginning sal-

ary, and that movements are under
way to improve the remunerations
of the profession in various ways. In
this connection the dean mentioned
the minimum wage laws, teacher re-
tiring acts and other pending state
aids to teachers.
"A growing demand for teachers is
especially noticeable in distributive
occupational training, or the teaching
of commercial courses in secondary
schools," Dean Edmonson said, "and
there is a fairly active demand in
almost all other fields as well. The
work in occupational training is likely
to increase further in the near fu-
ture because of state aid to schools
for this type of teaching."
Asked about the traditional small
town training which a beginning
teacher is usually expected to under-
go, Dean Edmonson expressed the
opinion that this work is not as irk-
some as once was the case because
of the improved condiions in small
town high schools and in the develop-
ment of modern transportation and
communication means.
Dean A. C. Furstenberg of the Med-
ical School will speak tomorrow on
the medical profession. The lecture
will be at 4:15 p.m. in Room 1025
