EACH SYSTEM DIFFERENT:
Weather Leads to Complications

Anything can happen.
In weather forecasting, this is
occasionally the case, as most
weather systems are slightly dif-
ferent from their forebears, a
forecaster at the Willow Run gov-
ernment weather bureau said yes-
With an average of two high
pressure and three low pressure
systems working their way across
the United States during this time
of year, each system brings differ-
ent weather to the area it covers.
S t e a d y precipitation results
from low pressure areas in the
winter, for example. High pres-
sure systems bring in fair weath-
er, although the temperatures are
generally a little cooler. Compli-
cating the situation even more,
low pressure systems carry warm

Continuing his explanation of
what makes weather, the forecast-
er said that high pressure systems,
if visible, would resemble domes or
hills. This, in meteorological terms,
is a ridge. Low pressure systems

valleys on land.
After completing this explana-
tion of the general workings of
weather, the weatherman said that
the poor weather Ann Arbor has
been experiencing lately has been
due partly to a high pressure ridge
in the West.
Coupled with this, low pressure
troughs from Canada have been
flowing past the ridge and heading
over this area at ,a fairly rapid
rate, bringing rain, snow and plain
poor weather with them.
Based on upper-atmosphere,
world-wide air movements, the
long-range weather forecasting
unit of the weather bureau in
Washington, D.C., is able to give
reasonably accurate five-day fore-
casts, he commented.
According to the last such re-
port issued, minor fluctuations in
weather will take place here until
Wednesday. The temperature will
be slightly over the 51 degree
average for this area. About one-
tenth of an inch of precipitation
can be expected, including some
scattered snow flurries.

By BEN WISE
The 75th anniversary of the Uni-
versity teacher education program,
the first permanent program of its
kind in the country, is being cele-
brated this year.
Teacher education originated in
theological schools of late 18th cen-
tury Europe. It began to emerge in
this country around the turn of that
century, when several short-lived
attempts were made by various
American colleges to offer courses
in philosophy of education.
In 1858 under President Philip
Tappan, the University saw the
need for this education, and it au-
thorized its first. teacher training
course. The course 'dealt with
teaching of ancient languages.
Gradually similar courses were
introduced into the curriculum, and
in 1879, nine years after the Univer-
sity had opened its doors to women
students, the Department of the
Science and the Art of Teaching
was formed as part of the literary
college. This step in the growth of
the teacher education movement
was largely due to the urgings of-
President James Burrill Angell.
The department then offered two
courses, one in practical teaching
methods, the other dealing with
philosophy of education.
During this time the famed edu-
cational philosopher, John Dewey,
spent his first 12 years of college
teaching on this campus.
School of Education
In 1921, when the importance of
teacher education had been finally
fully recognized, the University es-
tablished the School of Education
as one of its colleges. The school
offered 44 hours of courses in five
fields of educational study.
The University requested and re-
ceived a grant from the State to
construct a University High School,
erected in 1924 at a cost of $300,000.
In 1930, the University Elemen-
tary School was built to further
aid teaching students, and the en-
tire field of education, in this im-
portant "laboratory school" work.
Under the guidance of Dean Wil-
lard C. Olson, the school now
boasts a teaching staff of 81 mem-
bers, and an enrollment of nearly
1,000 students, with about 4,000 stu-
dents from other colleges taking
credits in the school.
As for future plans, Dean Olson
revealed that the State Legislature
has been requested to study build-
ing plans which would increase the
facilities and accommodate the
current rapid growth of the School

"Man on third!"
Such a cry is heard annually
and, for once, legally, when sor-
ority members stage weekends in
hbnor of the men who pay their
bills-the long-suffering fathers.
Although unaccustomed to male
voices' in upper regions of their
houses, sorority women face the
annual affair courageously, mov-
ing their clothes and cosmetics out
of their rooms early in the week
to be replaced by shaving equip-
ment and briefcases.
Come from Distant Points
Many fathers, like Walter H.
Hawes, who attended one soror-
ity's festivities last weekend, come
to Ann Arbor from points as dis-
tant as Washington, D.C., and
agree with him "I wouldn't miss
this weekend for a business con-

not because fathers were tired:

"This," summarized one daugh-
ter as the fathers reluctantly went
home to their offices and busi-
nesses, "was almost more fun
than a fraternity party."
And the dads agreed, guaran-

vent them from returning for
their weekend next fall.
Sunday, traditionally, is a time
for hearty breakfasts, trips to
church, and another banquet at
the sorority house. Fathers are
next entertained by their daugh-
ters, who prepare skits and musi-
cal programs for them.
