Student evaluation of instruc-
tors is only one part of a three-
point program outlined. The plan
1. Departmental committees of
three or more staff members (who
are not at the time being eval-
uated) will drop in on the profes-
sor's or instructor's class several
times during the semester. They
will note his classroom manner
and teaching ability.
2. Students will fill out their in-
dividual evaluation reports.
3. The instructor's colleagues
will discuss his teaching con-
tribution in the light of their
visits, the student evaluations,
information from other students
and graduates, and other
In addition, they will survey his
writings to determine the quality
of his scholarship. They will also
look at his record of administra-

in outside activities.

said that they would be care-

the accumulated data.
"Much of the program's effec-
tiveness will depend on student co-
operation," he said.
"If students don't take the pro-
gram seriously and help us find
ways to improve teaching, they
may discourage the whole project,"
he said.
IN THE GRADING procedure
ds it noe stands, students will
mark instructors on whether they
are clear, thorough and stimulat-
ing in presenting material, open-
minded, fair in grading, regular in
meeting class obligations.
They will also mark courses on
difficulty and general contribu-
tion to their education.
Every class taught by each
professor will be evaluated.
"This will insure a more com-
plete picture of faculty mem-
bers' teaching contributions,"
Dean Woodburne said.
Following the first evaluation,
Dean Woodburne said that he and
Dean Peake would like to discuss
how the grading scheme could be
improved with interested student

and faculty groups.

Navy Signs 221 Men
For FallTraining
Michigan's NavalROTC unit
has reported an enrollment over
twice the size of 1947-1948's regis-
tration. Whereas little more than.
100 men signed up for naval train-
ing last fall, this year 221 candi-
dates are taking advantage of the
present NROTC' program.
Out of his group, there are 104
freshmen. Forty-one of these are
regular students, or candidates
who have been awarded Navy
scholarshipships under the Hol-
loway Plan. The other section in-
cludes 63 freshman contract stu-
dents, men who will receive pay
after 'completion of the two-year
elementary courses.
Further breakdown of the en-
rollment numbers reveals a total
of 54 sophomores, 45 juniors and
18 seniors.

Will Be Ready if War Comes, Army Says
WASHINGTON-(P)-For the first time in our history the Army
plans to give reserve forces a vital role on mobilization day---if it
should come.
It plans to give M-Day assignments to 300,000 members of the
organized reserve corps (ORC) by next June 30. That is the date by
which General Omar N. Bradley, Chief of Staff, hopes to have an
18-division army, made up of 12 regular army divisions and six
national guard divisions. He says an 18-division army is our "minimum
security requirement."
* * * ,*
THE 300,000 ORC members slated for M-Day assignments will
be used in support of the 18 divisions. The ORC says that some of its
members already have their M-Day assignments but that organiza-
tion is moving so fast that it cannot estimate how many.
More than 7,000 ORC units have been activated, about 3,000
short of the goal. Not all these units will be ready to go on

A report on passports issued
during the months of April, May
and June wandered in today. And
housewives were at the top of the
OF THE 82,786 passports issued.
16,426 went to housewives, with
skilled laborers next at 11,976, ard
students third at 10,591.
As you know-or would know
if you had just talked with John
Boddie of the commerce depart-
ment-more people are going
abroad today than ever beore.
Some 159,000 went to Europe
last year, 46,000 of them by air.
And more would have gone if they
could have figured out some way
to get across the Atlantic.

A LARGE proportion of the
159.000 European travelers were
hastening back to the old country
to see Giuseppe, or Hans, or Fran-
"Many don't realize it," said
Boddie, "but 30,000,000 people in
this country either were born
abroad, or had at least one par-
ent born there. Women, in par-
ticular, like to get back."
Incidentally, the breakdown on
where are travelers are from pro-
duces an interesting note.
ONE FOURTH of all the pass-
ports, 23,562, were issued to resi-
dents of New York City:
This is quite a contrast to Wyo-
o course, there aren't as many
out there to give passports to. But
Wyoming got by with 59.

members of activated units.
Field artillery battalions, armored cavalry units, signal companies,
medical construction outfits and combat engineers are a few types
of units slated for M-Day du ty. In the past army reserve forces have TE
headed for special war-time schools and training outfits when the
emergency came.*
THE THING THAT MAKES the new plan possible is that a great
percentage of the 800,000 members of the ORC today have had war-
time training. Many have tasted combat.
Top ORC people call their organization a "strength in being."M;
They say that modern warfare will never again allow us theMA C
important time element. They say that an already-trained reserve
must be triggered for M-Day before it ever comes.
All over the country ORC units are being made ready to start
the methodical training they'll need to prepare them for M-Day.
Unit commanders are scouring their towns and cities for storage
space in which to put their equipment. ORC says M-Day units will
have the full equipment needed for use in the field. for iving and personalized

THE SELECTIVE SERVICE ACT fits right in with long-range
ORC plans. After 21 months of draft duty, men who are inducted
must sign up with an ORC (or national guard) unit for three years L0 for $2.00c
or with an unorganized unit for five years unless they are willing
to serve a full year more in the regular army.
Thus in 21 months the ORC expects to get a steady flow of
pre-trained men, a flow which will continue for two years, the Li IA I%"AVYXII~ L R
