T U C S O N D A I L Y CITIZEN TUESDAY, MARCH I. 1944 STUDENTS Study Set fin FLwwl Consents To " i Teacher Grading M "' ' * 'will cooperate with the students on their plan to grade their teachers. When the student government presented a plan earlier in January, the faculty organization voted not to cooperate. - . " William Ridenour, the student body president, said today that he thought the faculty had been persuaded to go along with the plan1eeausc of research efforts of the students. ?-'Wer researched everything we; could possibly find," said Ridenojur. "Particularly, ; the students checked into the fear expressed byr$oijie faculty members that students with low grades would judge Itheir teachers unfairly. -THE FOUND that the evalua- tioitoflstudents with poor grades was equal with that of students wMiJood grades," said Ride- teachers will be graded -students from 1 (poor) ey inmittee 'American Association for the-Advancement of Science has named Terah L. Smiley, head of theSniversity of Arizona's Geo- cbfboology Laboratories, to be of its Committee on -the major purpose of the com- taittee is to "provide information"- to the public on the entire r«jnge f - of problems connected with "man's use and development" of arid areas," said Smi- fey.%v : . ; ·'"The information will relate to sikh'lfliings as food and fiber, natural; resources, water a n d hyirological phenomena and so- cio-political problems." -. A national symposium will be heid\in Washington in December on "Migration to the Arid Areas of me Unked States: Potentialities and Dangers." to 5 (excellent) without "editorial" comment. Ridenour said that the record of teacher evaluation on more than 100 campuses has been good. "WE HOPE to have an evaluation that is as mature as possible," said Ridenour. "And we think it will be good for both the students and the teachers. "I think it will tell a teacher that maybe he is not doing his best in some areas, maybe his teaching is not quite adequate, and maybe he can try to improve." The students will be helped by such information as to whether the teacher grades by essays or multiple choice, he added. Ridenour said that on most of the 100 campuses where It is practiced, the student evaluation was done independent of faculty approval and this was one of the few where the faculty was asked to cooperate. THE FACULTY Senate, which voted yesterday to cooperate, chose Dr. Conrad Joyner, government teacher, to be its representative in the plan. Joyner said today, "I think the Senate became convinced that the students were in dead earnest about mis and were very serious. "Although mere were some questions in the minds of individual Senate members about the validity of the questionnaire and the procedures proposed, there certainly is the desire to cooperate with fee students when they put as much work on a project as they have. Thave some reservations but I see this as a first step in what I hope will become a more ilaborate system for both the evaluation and. encouragement of teaching." Plain Use Cof C Group Tackles Job Preliminary work toward a comprehensive land use plan for Tucson's flood plains will be accomplished by a subcommittee of the Chamber of Commerce Water Resources Committee, says chairman William ; Wheeler. The subcommittee's work is to be done in time for public hearings on area flood control problems which will be held in May by the Army Corps of Engineers. "The subcommittee's job will be to say what such a comprehensive plan should include," Wheeler said. The study will concern flood plains along the Santa Cruz and Rillito rivers and Pantano Wash, Wheeler said. The committee wants to see to it that the areas are used more intensively and in a greater variety of ways .than they are now, he said. Such uses as recreation, flood control, housing, and water reclamation are appropriate, he added. "Flood control is the price you pay for using this land," Wheeler noted. If the streams are channelized and regulated, all kinds of development can proceed safely, he said. Any comprehensive plan is likely to be more restrictive than present practices in some areas and less so in others, he said. "Obviously, building wouldn't be appropriate" in areas reserved for surface water to soak through and recharge ground water supplies, he pointed out. Wheeler said the comprehensive plan itself could be prepared in any one of a number rf ways, but some governmental agency "would have to father it." The agency involved could be either local or federal, he said.
