HONORING FACULTY: I f'I CL
Classof 1919 To Continue
Teacher Reward Program
Transportation Issue Tries Students
The literary class of 1919 plans
to continue its program of re-
warding outstanding teaching in
the classrooms of the literary col-
lege, it was announced recently
by the group's class committee.
The program will take the form
of five annual awards, one of
which has already been given, to
the faculty member selected by a
committee appointed by the Exe-
cutive Committee of the college.
A new addition to the roster of
"location" clubs will make its de-
but at 8 p.m. Monday in the Kala-
mazoo Rm. of the League when
former wearers of the black and
gold meet to form a Purdue Club.
This seeming dissension in the
Michikan ranks might smack of
fifth column activities. But ac-
cording to Ann Liggett and Henry
Ryder"(both Purdue '48), two of
the clubs organizers, nothing of
the like is intended.
"A great many Purdue grad-
uates are now living or going to
school in Ann Arbor," they said,
"and the clun will offer a way for
them to meet each other."

present its first jam session of the
semester at 8:30 p.m. today in the
The Lord Carlton Sextet, the

grant of $1,000.
Prof. William B. Palmer, '29,
of the economics department
was presented with the firstr
award Ity President Alexander
G. Ruthven in a ceremony at
the 30th anniversary reunion
dinner of the class last June.
A citation presented to Palmer
at that time praised him as an
"outstanding teacher, and under-
standing counselor, and a wise
contributor to the educational
growth of the college."
In introducing Palmer to the
clas members present, Dean Hay-
ward Keniston of the literary col-
lege predicted that the program
would "provide a real stimulus
towards encouraging more effec-
tive instruction in our class-

DEAN KENISTON amplified on
this statement last week by say-
ing that the award program was
"right in line" with the efforts
the literary college had been mak-
ing to have the faculty members
realize that teaching, as well as
study in special fields, is an es-
sential part of their service to the
He added that he hoped other
classes would imitate the class
of 1919 and establish similar
awards or ones granted on the
basis of outstanding achieve-
ment in the teaching of parti-
Palmer said last week that he
was "naturally" quite gratified to
receive the award.
I think I would have been near-
ly as well pleased if I hadn't been
the recipient because of the lift
it gave to the faculty members
who've devoted the majority of
their time to teaching," he said.
