A Move for Better Teachers
/"VNE OF the professions which is rapidly feeling the ingrow
ing pains of overcrowding is that of teaching. Not over
crowded with expert teachers, but with a plentitude of mediocre
ones, education has reached the point where it is faced with the
necessity of discouraging students from taking up teaching as
a life work unless they intend to specialize and really stick to it.
Through weaknesses of the American educational system,
public school teachers are often poorly equipped to instruct in
the courses they are called upon to fill.
The university’s school of education is confronted with per
plexing problems, presented by students who expect to hold
down jobs and yet arc woefully deficient in the matter of major
and minor norms.
In central United States many stales belong to an association
which rules that no one can teach a subject in a high school
unless they majored or minored in that subject in college. That,
educators say, is a long step toward placing experts or near
experts in the public schools.
Last week end at Salem a committee of the state high school
principals’ association drew up a recommendation to the state
board of education to go into effect September 1, 1981, which
looks to be a big step in placing Oregon in the race education
li«lore any teacher can instruct in any subject m lugli
schools above 4 teachers a minimum of 20 term hours is 1y be
required in that subject, meaning that the teacher must have
cither majored or minored in it in college. While such a move
will make it hard for some of the students now in school to get
jobs when they graduate it will also make for better equipped
teachers in the larger high schools of Oregon.
With these stricter requirements for better-trained teachers
enters in another problem—higher pay. Oregon cannot get
first class teachers for nothing. They will get just what they
pay for. That is the situation today in the cities and rural dis
tricts. Poor salaries mean poor teachers, for no high class man
or woman will work for $1,000 in the teaching profession when
he can get twice or ten times as much in some other.
This is only a step in specialization in an age of specializa
tion. Better salaries will mean better teachers and vice versa.
Meanwhile, the school of education should continue its work of
stressing specialization and discouraging generalization so that
when the change comes, and it must, tho wayside will not be
cluttered with the casualties.

” “War” Proves Popular ’
TTP AT the military barracks on University street one finds a
few facts and figures that are pleasing to a non-pacifist.
With an enrollment of 700 men, 130 more than last year, the
It. O. T. C. is entering into one of its most active years, under
tin' leadership of Major Frederick A. Barker.
Despite considerable talk to the contrary in campus circles,
“war” has not been the unpopular course sometimes pictured
in public print in the past. One of the major bones of con
tention lias been the uselessness of military training when the
country is at peace and has pledged itself to a policy of renun
ciation of war.
dust how strong this pact will he toward preventing future
strife is a moot question for the rank and file of writers the
world over and they have reached no decision either way. Ac
cording to compilers of martial statistics, small wars occur
every ten years and large ones once in twenty years. When
the cycle moves around the United States should not be caught
with millions of green fighting men. For that reason univer
sities and colleges over the nation now have military training.
The greatest value of the 11. O. T. O. work is not so much
built around the university hours of credit allowed, but rather
in the disciplinary and physical benefits derived from the
training. Oregon lias a good K. 0. T. (’. unit which turns out
creditable men and officers. A proof of its popularity can be
seen in the numbers of upperclassmen who wish to continue
their training. Crowded conditions make it impossible to use
them all and the corps is able to pick the best for its officers.
It is with gratification that the news of the expansion of
the It. O. T. C. can he printed.
Showers of eggs gave a Kansas high school principal a merry
good-by the other day. An affidavit which resulted in the dis
qualification of a rival school’s football star and the ultimate j
loss of the game brought, about the irate send-off. Last year
University of Iowa was kicked out of the Big Ten conference
and eggs figured prominently in the row which followed. These
demonstrations reveal a great need for farm relief and a market
for the eggs in the Middle West.
Harvard University has established the first school of city ,
planning ever opened in the United States. A degree of master
of city planning is offered, and the students take topography,
horticulture, municipal construction and housing in their cur
riculum. This is a noteworthy step in the direction of speciali
zation, but it would seem that jobs in this field would be a bit
limited in number, , "
