BEHIND HIGH SCHOOL'S FAILURE:
Education School Gives Poor
Training to Future Teachers

"What's Good for General Motors

By PAT ROELOFS
Associate City Editor
UNIVERSITY instructors often make refer-
ences to the ignorance of freshmen stu-
dents of elementary facts in very fundamental
fields, i.e. history, geography. When looking
at below standard work of many of their first
year students, professors criticize the training
freshmen have received in the secondary
schools. The only way university instructors can
cope with the poorly prepared students in be-
ginning courses is to take in hand themselves
the task of teaching students what they should
have learned in high school courses, or to ig-
nore students' inadequacies, allowing them
either to make added effort to raise their own
standards or to flunk out of college.
The university instructor sould not have
to be faced with the job of preparing freshmen
who should have learned certain basic concepts
in theit high school years. This added job is the
result of a failure of the high schools to do
their job sufficiently in terms of preparing
young people for college work. As a result, the
whole secondary education system is getting a
verbal beating from university instructors ev-
erywhere.
THE POOR high school preparation of college
freshmen stems from poor training the
freshmen's high school teachers have received
in teacher training institutions. The Univer-
sity School of Education makes a good specific
example for study. (The University's School of
Education is reputedly one of the best teacher
training institutions in the country. It can be
assumed that the following situation is worse
at other institutions.)'
Many courses in the School of Education are
unnecessary. Courses in educational philosophy,
educational psychology, methods in the teach-
ing of certain courses and problems of the be-
ginning teacher-all deal with the same things.
They shouldn't, of course. That they do is not
the fault of delegating certain material to spe-
cific courses, but the failure of teachers to
plan together to stick to their specific fields
and to material specified in catalogs as belong-
ing to particular courses. Today there is over-
lapping to the point of ridiculousness.
The answer to this problem seems to be quite
simple. One three-credit course during the jun-
ior year of college could quite sufficiently cover
the material now covered in all of these courses;
overlapping would be prevented, and so would
wasted hours of the students' time that could
be more beneficially spent in much better lit-
erary college courses.
SGC Needs More
IT IS becoming increasingly obvious that Uni-
versity students either still think of student
government only in terms of Student Legis-
lature or they have simply lost interest in the
new student government with "power" they
supported by a 3-1 margin last December.
At 5 p.m. yesterday there were still only 23
Student Government Council petitions in cir-
culation. This figure only surpasses the num-
ber of J-Hop petitions by four and there are
two more positions open on SGC than for
J-Hop. In addition the total is 11 less than
the number of students who ran for Student
Legislature last December when even the
existence of the organization they were run-
ning for was uncertain.
SINCE SGC will be opening a trial period it
is evident that an outstanding group is
necessary if the new student government if it
is to successfully survive two years probation.
There should be many more people interested
in at last bringing the University a strong re-
sponsible student government than in giving
the University another successful mid-winter
dance.
Mrs. Callahan's office at 1020 Administra-
tion Bldg. will have petitions available until
Monday. However 350 signatures are needed so
they should be picked up right away. There
should be at least as many SGC candidates
as SL had for its last election.
-Dave Baad

TO CLARIFY this last statement, one can
look at the School of Education's list of
courses in psychology-it is a long and impres-
sive list-and conclude that perhaps there is
some knowledge to be had from taking them.
But by sitting in on them, and comparing them
with equally impressive sounding literary col-
lege psychology courses, one can conclude in a
short time that the literary college psychology
faculty is much better equipped to teach stu-
dents important principles in this field. (This
probably results from the fact that School of
Education psychology teachers have received
training in education and not in psychology.)
One might add that in addition to more bene-
ficial material covered in literary college psy-
chology courses (we are referring to a specific
department only for illustrative purposes, for
this matter can be generalized to other depart-
ments), the literary college professors are for
some unknown reason better able to deliver
interesting lectures than are the education
school professors. And the material covered is
applicable to a high school teaching situation.
MANY COURSES in the School of Education
are attempting to give students theory: the
theoory of the junior-high school; the theory
of John Dewey; the theory of the whole child;
the theory of achievement; the theory of in-
dividual progress; but when there is little
chance to see the theory in action through
observation of classes in progress, theory is
utterly useless. In addition, so much of the
theory tossed at students in the form of dull
lectures will never be more than theory, for in
actual school situations, none of the theories
are present in precisely the form described by
the lecturer.
Added criticism may be made of the teacher
training program at this university in terms
of rewards some instructors make for medio-
crity: the textbooks used are poorly written
(often by local instructors and no doubt used
as a matter of colleague courtesy); frequent
papers on outside readings, written reports and
other extra work are required by teachers who
never read them (as can be attested to by stu-
dents who have handed in the same paper at
several intervals in one semester and still re-
ceived A or B in the course); more attention is
paid to footnotes in term papers than content,
as can also be attested to by students' ex-
periences; and some instructors criticize stu-
dents who do added reading and much work on
reports by saying "some of you are only trying
to show off how much reading you do." The
serious student feels quite insulted by the cours-
es taught in the School of Education; it does
seem that better efforts by the instructors to
improve the situation could be made.
AS AN OVERALL suggestion to leaders on
the School of Education faculty who may
intend to study the present teacher training
program, may I suggest that the practice teach-
ing situation is the most educational and use-
ful experience the program offers. In one se-
mester of taking part in the classroom experi
ences and being partly responsible for teaching
a class, of following the advice and example of
a real teacher rather than a university instruc-
tor who probably hasn't been in a secondary
schoolroom as a teacher for more than 20
years or so-a student can learn more that
will help him later than in 12 to 15 other
hours of education courses.
Perhaps other courses could be combined as
suggested above; and the student teacher could
take two semesters of practice teaching, per-
haps for four hours of credit each semester.
This certainly would seem to alleviate a now
boring and seemingly useless curriculum, and
would more adequately prepare teachers who
are going out to in turn prepare high school
students for college. It would give the student
teacher time to pursue studies in the major
field of concentratioon which will be useful
when he is teaching, rather than bogging him
down with useless courses.
In the long run, it would aid university in-
structors who are now being loaded down with
the job that high school teachers should be do-
ing. It's only fair to the population at large
to do some extensive and serious revising of the
present deplorable teacher training situation.

since the December SL elections.
Howevr, in order to insure CSP's
becoming a permanent segment
of the campus, a larger member-
ship is desired. Those interested
in helping to establish the politi-
cal party system on campus (an-
other party is supposedly form-

Senile Hangover .. .
To The Editor:
O UR complaint, an old but too
long unheeded one, is the Uni-
versity driving ban. The prime
reason advanced for the ban seems
to be not wanting to overcrowd
the roads with vehicles driven by
young people. Who's kidding who?
Has anyone ever counted the ille-
gal cars on campus?
Yes, we are crying because one
of us has been stung. However,
we feel that there are many who
may agree with us to the point
where the concerted effort of all

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

might do something about this
hangover of senile idiocy.
We are both veterans, 25 and 23
years old, one having served six
years in the army and the other
three years in the airforce. While
in the service we saved and plan-
ned like everyone else in order
that we might own an automobile
when we were discharged. Some-
time during this period we decid-
ed to return to school and quite
naturally began to think about
how pleasant it would be to re-
turn with an auto which we owned
and a birth certificate indicating
we were over 21 and supposedly
responsible citizens in the com-
munity.
We chose to attend this Uni-
versity, because we considered it
the best. Yet on enrolling here we
find that we are not considered
responsible citizens. Rather we are
expected to let a $2,500 investment
sit in a garage or in the street
and depreciate.
We are expected to do this in
spite of the fact that when pass-
ing the local high school we are
frequently almost run down by
speed-demon high-schoolers driv-
ing their cars.
The point is that we worked and
saved for a few years in order to
avail ourselves of something which
no law in the land will deny us
and yet, because we want a de-
cent education, we are in fact de-
nied the thing. This is democracy
and common sense in action?

Washington Merry-Go-Round

University Rightly Consults
Students on Quad Rent Hike

By DREW ?EARSON
WASHINGTON- Some Republi-
can Congressmen are getting
cold feet on passing the pay in-
crease for judges and Congressmen
recommended by Eisenhower. Some
are worried over voter reaction at
home, others have law practices or
private incomes and don't need the
money.
So, despite the fact that the Re-
publican Congress initiated the
pay increase last year and Eisen-
hower has consistently urged it,
the proposal may be defeated when
it comes to a vote today.
It so happens that this writer
has been directly or indirectly re-
sponsible for putting four Con-
gressmen in jail for augmenting
their salaries with kickbacks or
bribes. This isn't a record I like to
brag about. On the contrary I
would rather do something to place
Congressional pay in a bracket
where there should be no tempta-
tion to supplement salaries.
Unfortunately the cost of living
in Washington, plus the cost of
campaigning at home, plus the
cost of traveling back and forth
between, is so high that Congress-
men are gradually being divided
into the following catagories:
1. Bachelors, who don't have to
support a family.
2. Wealthy men who don't have
to worry about low salaries.
3. Those who get subsidized by
lobbyists or law firms, or have a
personal expense fund a la Nixon.
or, 4, Honest Congressmen who
scrimp and save and almost starve
and eventually give up the struggle
and leave Congress.
BRICKER'S BONANZA
illustrate, Senator Bricker of
Ohio is against a pay increase.
He doesn't have to worry. His law
firm in Columbus has received an
average of about $50,000 a year
from the Pennsylvania Railroad

Ohio, also opposes the pay increase.
Honest, forthright, lucky, Brown is
personally wealthy.
Meanwhile, the struggle of the
average honest Congressman to
maintain a home in his district
and a home in Washington, with
his expenses paid to travel home
only once a year, has become so
terrific that the amount of money
borrowed :n advance, o.. Congres-
sional salaries, from the Seageant-
at-Arms Office, would shock the
public.
MERRY-GO-ROUND
jONGRESSMAN Jimmy Roose-
velt uses a non-sked airline, North
American, to fly home to make a
speech in Los Angeles. He can't
afford to take a regular airline,
and few Congressmen who live on
their salary can. If you st(e your
Congressman coming home fre-
quently if he lives some distance
from Washington, you'll know
there's something phony about his
income . . . . When Perle Mesta
first went to see "Call Me Madam,"
with Mrs. Truman and Margaret,
the Trumans considered Irving
Berlin's take-off on Mrs. Mesta's
diplomatic career shocking. Perle,
however, has been such a good
sport that the other day she gave a
large tea for Russell Nype, the ac-
tor who played the part of the
young State Department diplomat
opposite Ethel Merman, who play-
ed the part of Mrs. Mesta. . . .
Though the Luxemburgers were a
little concerned at first at getting
a lady minister, today they are
nostalgic about Perle, frequently
wish she were back . . . . GI's in
Frankfort, Germany, are also nos-
talgic.
A CONGRESSMAN'S HEART
CONGRESSMAN Bob Kean of
Jersey, unlike most of his col-
leagues, is known to have a big
bankrole. But it's not so well
known that he has a big heart.
Mrs Marne Moretti nf Manl.e

DISCUSSION OF a proposed room and board
rate hike in the University residence halls
by members of the Inter-House Council an~d
Assembly marks a significant landmark in the
University's attitudes towards students. This is.
the first time here that proposed rate hikes
have been discussed by quadrangle leaders be-
fore the final decision has been passed upon
by the Board of Governors of the Residence
Halls.
In the past, first indication of room and
board rate increases have come when students
discovered they were already a fact, the Board
New Rooks at the Library
Brown, Alexander Dee-Grierson's Raid; Ur-
bana, University of Illinois Press, 1954.

of Governors previously having approached the
proposition. When the last such "secret" rate
hike was approved by the Board of Governors
on March 11, 1953, the IHC voted opposition to
the policy of not being informed on such mat-
ters prior to rate increases. East Quadrangle
President Roger Kidston said at the time the
IHC had been assured it would be notified be-
fore final decisions on room and board increas-
es were made.
THIS TIME, before any final decision has
been reached on the proposed hike, the
IHC and Assembly have been notified before-
hand. It is to the credit of the Administration
that the notification was given, thus allowing
students to discuss the issues involved. The Uni-
versity is to be congratulated for taking this
position.
