THE STUDENT part of the eval-
uation was continued, however,
and on three occasions some 40,-
000 blanks were filled in, analyz-
ed statistically and then deposit-
ed with the Dean's office.
"The old plan was only inci-
dentally a student questionnaire
and it was never intended that
the student evaluation portion
should come to have the promi-
nence it gained when the re-
mainder of the plan was aban-
doned," Prof. Peterson explain-
ed.
The committee points out in its
report that "student opinion can
be helpful in suggesting improve-
ments to the teacher in his class-
room performance and course of-
ferings, in providing information
that, may assist department ad-
ministrators in staff assignments
and in giving students a sense of
participation in the educational
process and in elevating their
standards."
The review committee consisted
of nine members of the literary
college faculty and met every two
weeks during the 1952-53 academic
year.!
On various occasions the com-
mittee.heard the views of a num-
ber of student leaders, consulted
with faculty and college admin-
istrators and attended last year's
college conference dealing with the
faculty evaluation program.

GILBERT AND SULLIVAN CAST REHEARSES FOR 'PATIENCE*
STUDENTS AID CIVIL DEFENSE:
'Sky Watchers' Work Atop Union

FLASH:..
A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

E'

By PAT ROELOFS
The white, fleecy streamers you
often see in the sky can be a
headache-to skywatchers.
Tell-tale streamers give away
the presence of planes invisible to
the eye from the ground. Sky-
watchers, better known as plane
spotters, located in a small tower
atop the Union, spot planes by
these contrails or by sound, and
record what they observe.
WORKING WITH the Air Force
and the Ground Observer Corps,
the 32 spotters work on two hour
per week shifts. University stu-
dents who have volunteered their
services are included in the group.
According to Chief Observer Char-
les Holzhauer a full crew of 84
volunteers is needed to maintain
24 hour service.
Spotting planes by eye, ear
and field glasses, observers re-
port all "military aircraft and
Feldberg To Talk
On Pharmacology
Dr. W. Feldberg, of the National
Institute for Medical Research,
London, England, will speak at
4:15 p.m. today on "Some Aspects
of the Pharmacology of the Cen-
tral Synaptic Transmission," in
the School of Public Health audi-
torium.
The lecture is sponsored ,by the
pharmacology department.

any unknown private planes to
a filter center located in Grand
Rapids. Distance of planes is
estimated by recording their lo-
cation in relation to radio and
airport towers outside of the
city. A distance of 11.5 miles
can be seen on a clear day from
the Union.
When the filter center receives
a report, which is given in code,
intercepting planes are sent up to
identify any unknown plane or
airship that has strayed from its
regular route.
THE IMPORTANCE of the
Ground Observer Corps cannot be
overestimated, according to Chief
Observer Holzhauer. Military of-
ficials have reported that an air
stream from northern Russia flows
into Canada, Michigan, and goes
on down to Florida. Any plane fly-
ing under 5,000 feet altitude can-
not be picked up by radar and
this is where the spotter plays his
major role.
Although a foreign plane spot-
ted over Ann Arbor could not be
prevented from doing any dam-
age in this area, further dan-
ger can be eliminated when the
spotters warn near-by cities. Air
attack is not as impossible in
thiscarea as many people believe,
Holzhauer pointed out.
Decorating the walls of the tiny
tower shack on the Union roof,
are drawings of U.S. and Russian
military aircraft. Observers learn
to quickly identify American air-
craft of different kinds. A huge
map of the Ann Arbor area is also
part of the tower backdrop.
Plans for adding a sound de-

tector to the meager equipment
at the local post are being made,
Panhellenic officers have re-
quested sorority members inter-
ested in joining the GOC to sign
up at their respective houses. They
report that several students have
shown their interest and will be-
gin a short training period in
plane spotting soon.
Meanwhile, the present crew, in-
cluding the services of a blind
man, continue operation behind
closed doors. The label on their
work is "top secret."
