fffl PA14PA BAiLTf HBWS, Pafiii*, EDITOR AL SOME MARKS OF A GREAT TEACHER By Glenn Frank, Pres. U. Of Wisconsin (1) The great teacher never stops studying his sub- He does hot lecture year after year from the same - dog-eared notes. He is in the best sense of the word a research man. This does not, of necessity, mean that he is forever publishing monographs and books in his field. Frankly, when I have an appointment to make, I refuse to be impressed by a long list of research publications until I have seen the candidate and get the feel of his , mind, for some of the livest minds in the world of scholarship are not forever rushing into print, and some of the dullest are. I am convinced that a very definite ' harm has been done to our universities by the emphasis , we have put on publication qua publication by the teach• era we appoint. We need men of wide knowledge and penetrating wisdom, and many teachers would be broader and wiser men if they studied and thought more and wrote less. (2) The great teacher establishes a personal as well as a professional relation with his students. I confess that I lose interest in a teacher when I . discover that he never sees his students save in his . classrooms and in his office at stated and limited hours. The great teacher is willing to have his private life broken into by eager students who come into his home at odd hours for informal and unofficial intellectual wrestling bouts. All this is a taxing enterprise. But who ever said that the life of a great teacher is an easy life? (3) Whatever the great teacher may be teaching, it is for him a window through which he looks out upon . the whole universe. No curriculum can ever catch the complex of a living moving world. The world of 1935 will be different from the world we interpret to the Senior of 1934. The I great teacher gives the student a way of looking at his world by the way he teaches his specialized: field. As an undergraduate I learned ways of thinking about politics frotm chemists, and had foreign policy illuminated by geologists. (4) The merchandising of information will never seem to the great teacher his main purpose. The kindling of the student's will, the enrichment of his emotions, the illumination of his imagination, giving him sensitivity and eagerness of mind will seem to the great teacher more important than all else. (5) The great teacher will not think he has failed if one of his students fails, but only if the student has not wanted to succeed. An awakened will will survive more than one specific failure, but a mind left asleep indicts the teacher. (6) The great teacher Avill not think it beneath his dignity to pay attention to the art of presentation. There is no intrinsic connection between scholarship and unintelligibility. The great teacher will never be "content to show knowledge on the counter with a take- it-or-leave-it air. He will strive to make intelligence intelligible. (7) The great teacher will never speak of his class-room work as routine teaching. There cannot 'be routine teaching. There can only be routine teachers. (8) The great teacher will be inspiration without sacrificing a rigid realism of fact and idea. Many "popular" teachers are esseiitially shoddy showmen whose stock-in-trade is amiability and a playing down to student sloth. But the most profound inspirational teaching arises from reality presented with artistry. (9) The great teacher has a gracious spirit and a tonic gayety of mind because, first, he conceives teaching as an exhilirating enterprise, and, second, because he approaches his task with a sense of confidence. Harassed and incompetent teachers are so because they are not adequately equipped for their task and fail to sense its intrinsic importance. Happy and effective teachers are so because their training gives them a sustaining sense of competence and their inborn quality of mind enables them to see the greatness of the teaching mission. The great teacher brings to his business accurate and wide knowledge, an informed technique, intelligence, energy, initiative, adaptability, common sense, high standards of personal character and professional achievement, singleness of purpose, sympathy, a rich social background, and a convincing sincerity of personality. All Texas was in a state of excitement over the Impending war with Mexicon. Srots had already been fired at Gonzales, and Goliad had seen taken by the Americans. Courthouse bulletins carried the resolutions adopted by -the Americans— Austin and other leaders—at their consultation November 3. Many wished to stay out of war entirely; some wanted to waste no time in getting whjat they believed to be their rights. Nine resolutions were adopted: "Whereas, Gen. Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna ... by force of arms has overthrown the federal constitution of Mexico and dissolved the social compact that existed between Texas and other members of the Mexican confederacy, now the good people of Texas, availing themselves of their natural rights proclaim . . ." they proclaimed tli&t all recognition of authority in Mexico THE NEW DEAL IN WASHINGTON -BY RODNEY DUTCHER. NEA Service Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON.—It wasn't until Democrats took over the senate restaurant that the ominous letters "ILS.S.R." appeared on the coats of the waiters. (Republicans take note.) If it seemed worth while, one might polish up a pun to the effect that whereas a pie counter used to 'be part of the restaurant, the restaurant now is part of the pie counter. Senator Matthew Neely of West Virginia started cutting pie when he found himself chairman of the Rules committee this session. One of his chief functions in that job is to run the senate restaurant. Senator Neely prominently made W. W. Arbuckle, a mathematics instructor, the restaurant manager, and Edward H. Nunnally, of the Bureau of Standards mechanical staff, the assistant manager. Senator Neely has a hot 1936 renomination fight coming up. Thousands of West Virginians who live here, working in or out of the government, cast their votes back home. Candidates for congress in that state have been known to make campaign speeches here. By what would be an exceptionally rare coincidence if you didn't know any better, Arbuckle was and is president of the capital's West Virginia Democratic Club and Nunnally is president of the West Virginia State society. The food, however, is no worse. It couldn't be. * * * * Congressman Allen Treadway of Massachusetts is an old-fashioned republican. At the house hearings on the economic security bill he sought to make it appear that the measure was an unsound concoction of "brain trust- ers." Going caustically down the list of the president's security advisory committees, he came to "Acturial Gon- sujtante," a committee whose chairman was Prof. James W. GJover of the University of Michigan. "Would you mind: telling me," he asked Executive 3ecret£ry Edwin E. Witte, "how a college professor qualifies as an actuarial expert?" "Professor Glover," replied Witte, "probalbly has trained two-thirtjs of the actuaries no,w working for the insurance companies and himself commands large fees when those companies call him into consultation." Mr. Treadway didn't ask any more questions like that. * * * * A fellow was almost reminded of the Hauptmann trial when the Senate munitions investigation, taking up a letter from a du.Poht official to Irenee du Pont, bumped into what the official insisted was a typographical error. .. Ruly Carpenter had written to suggest that the du (Fonts keep 'a lobbyist here instead 6f lobbying from Wilmington and said the du Porft sales office "would be a good hiding place" for such a lobbyist if one were necessary. "I think that was purely a stenographic error," Carpenter insisted. "It meant 'hiving'." "What would be a hiving place?" demanded Chairman Nye. "A place \vhere he could have tin office, or hold out; just a slang expression," explained' Carpenter. But the committee didn't s'eem quite convinced. Among all the concessions the movie actors appear to gain, there's not one limiting the working hours or output of their press agents. While Japan fears Avar will come with Russia, the munitions maker's still fear it won't. Railroads are putting on faster and faster trains until some day they'll succeed in beating the automobiles to the crossings. France and England a're getting together to decide on the ,future of Germany, World Court -or no League of Nations! There's much ado over the nine-year sleep of a man in Springfield, Mass., who can still eat, drink, and smoke. What's unusual about that? Aren't so many of us? TEXAS HISTORY Brushing Up on Fact* You Ought to Recall Was dissolved, th[at they were taking arms in defehse of their property and lives, and solemnly avowed to the World that they were no longer bound in the union, and would not cease to carry on warfare while "certain people are In Texas." The first trouble had taken place at Gonzales, October 2, 1835, when Col. Castenado was sent to that city to get small cannon which had been kept for protection against Indians. He had a force of 150 men, and was met by a force of 186 men under the captainship of Albert Martin. Martin's force had increased from 18 to 168 In two days. John H. Moore was electel colonel and J. W. E. Wallace was elected lieutenant-colonel. As the Mexicans retreated to San Antonio, Capt. George Collinsworth of Matagorda was raising a company to capture the gairrison at Goliad. About that time Benjamin R. Milam returned from Mexico, and joined the company. Mllam was a favorite, a good soldier, and his welcome was sincere. The attack at Goliad was a surprise to Lieut-Col. Sandoval. Quite suddehly his door was broken down, 25 of his men taken captives, 300 startds of arms were taken, and military stores valtlihg $10,000. Leaving Oapt. Philip Dimit to guard the place, the Texans went on, capturing the Mexicon fort at Llpantitlah, on the Nueces river, three weeks later. War had been declared, though not officially. Henceforth there was to be no peace in Texas until it became separated from MefcicO. It is In commemoration of the achievement of that event that the centennial celebrations of 1936 in Texas are to be held. Investigation Probe Shunted AUSTIN, Feb. G. (/P)— The Texas house side-stepped action today on a senate proposition to launch a sweeping investigation into the state government, Including private Income and employment of legislators, campaign expenses of elective officers and related matters. Rep. Traylor Russell of Mount Pleasant, author" of a house resolution to require only members of the two houses to list their corporate connections, put through a motion to print the senate amendments In the Journal after Rep. W. E. Pope of Corpus Chilsti was denied a motion to concur in the senate action. Russell indicated he would ask the house to reject the senate amendment and would seek passage of a resolution applying only , to house members. The house also delayed action on a resolution by Pope to appoint a committee of seven members to investigate state departments to determine truth, of "prevalent rumors that state funds are being unwisely expended." Opposing members complained the resolution was too Indefinite and demanded more information about the rumors. TO CONSIDER APPOINTMENTS AUSTIN, Feb. 6. (yp)—Senator Ben G. Oneal, chairman of the senate committee on 'governor's nominations, today -called a meeting for Thursday to consider six appointments by Governor James'v. Allred, including thjat of Rep. Sarah T. Hughes to be a Dallas county district judge. Oneal said several people had requested a hearing on Mrs. Hughes' nomination, which also was cpppsed by Senator Claud Westerfeld of Dallas. A farmer whose real name is Blue Brown lives near Celina, Tenn. THE PAMPA DAILY NEWS Published evenings except Saturday, ahd Sunday morning by Pamfca ttelly 822 West JVwter , Pampa, Texas QILMORB N.
