This Week
Evaluation Plan
Continues Today
Today and tomorrow students
in the literary college will con-
tinue to rate their instructors and
courses under the Student Legis-
lature sponsored student-faculty
evaluation program.
Dean Burton D. Thuma of the
literary college pointed out that it
was important for students to
consider the questions seriously
and has cleaned up some, of the
ambiguities to be found on the
QUESTIONS ONE to four which
deal with the difficulty of the
course, clarity of course objectives,
value of the text and the effect-
iveness and fairness of examina-
tions, are self explanatory.
In question five, however,
which deals with the correlation
of lectures, text, lab work, quiz-
zes and reading, Dean Thuma
pointed out that the instructors

terial must be taken into con-
"'Some instructors use the text
only to supplement their lectures
r while others find the material
covered in texts sufficient enough
to follow it quite closely," he ex-

IN QUESTION SIX, which asks
the student to rate "Regularity
and adequacy of meeting class ob-
ligations (eveness of assignments,
return of papers, etc.) ", the dean
emphasized that the type of exam
given must be remembered.
"Long essay type exams pre-
sent a real time consuming
grading problem," he explained,
"and any time under a week to
ten days should not be consid-
ered too long."
In question nine, "Open mind-
edness and encouragement of dif-
ferences of opinion," Dean Thuma
interpreted it to mean acceptance
and presentation of the views of
other authorities rather than
willingness to accept student's op-

structors, who will see their rat-
ings at the end of the semester,
are the comments requested in
question 12.
Dean Thuma emphasized the
importance of writing a good con-
structive commentary, either fav-
orable or unfavorable, on the in-
structor and the course.
"In these comments students
should explain why they have giv-
en the rating they have and use
concrete examples whenever pos-
sible," he concluded.

Union manager Frank Kuenzel
said that this number is not too
high in relation to past years.
However, he warned students,
against leaving their coats lying in
the Union lobby.
Many of the thefts occurred
when owners left their coats on
benches in the second floor
lobby before dropping into the
library for a few minutes. When
they returned, their coats were

New ROTC Contracts
Require Longer Service

-Daily-Al Reid
KETTLE WATCHERS-Alpha Omicron Pi members are out in
full force today to man kettles for the Salvation Army Christmas
Bureau. Here Jeanne Freshour, '53, (left) and Charlotte Charles,
'53 SM (center) gaily jingle their Christmas bells as Inez Kirouse,
'55 gives her contribution. The Alpha Omicron Pi girls will also
be out next Tuesday, and next Thursday. Zeta Psi fraternity has
offered to man the kettles the afternoons of Dec. 18 and 20, while
Trigon fraternity will help the Bureau Dec. 19. All house groups
interested in manning kettles during any afternoon should call

All contracts between the gov-
ernment and Army ROTC cadets
have been cancelled and a new
one offered requiring an extra year
of service in the reserve, it was
announced yesterday to military
classes by Colonel Charles Wie-
gand, professor of military science
and tactics.
The contract change came about
as a result of the Universal Mili-
tary Training and Service portion
of the Selective Service Bill passed
by Congress last summer. In the
UMT Act, provision was made for
all 'physically fit men to serve
for a total of eight years in the
armed forces-two in the regular
services and six in the active re-
IN THE announcement it was
explained to all students that the
new contract will be ready for
signature shortly. All previous
benefits found in the old one, such
as deferment under theSelective
Service Act, will be retained. The
only change made is the extension
of service by a year.
Under the provision of Army
Regulations, basic course stu-
dents who fail to sign the new

deferment agreement will be al-
lowed to contimie in the ROTC
program for colege credit, but
will not be deferred from Selec-
tive Service induction.
However, advanced course stu-
dents who presently have an RO-
TC deferment and who are not ex-
empt from Selective service in-
duqtion because of previous active
service in the Armed Forces will
be discharg ed from the ROTC and
their draft boards notified that
they are no longer exempt.
expect a large scale refusal to sign
the new agreement, but if such
objections occur, students will not
be required to refund any of the
pay received from the government.
Usually, when a cadet or ad-
vanced student decides to drop out
of training, he is forced to refund
all money received from the gov-
ernment, Col. Wiegand explained.
A contract change similar to the
one given to Army ROTC students
is expected to be instituted by the
Air Force ROTC shortly, although
no official word has been received
by AFROTC officials here.
