    Summons Delivered
Charging Campus Coeds
T'.'.o long arm of the law school
last night knocked at the doors
of nearly 30 University coeds and
presented them with summonses
charging “breach of promise,”
“defamation of character," “al
ienation of affection,” and other
serious offenses.
Patrolman Jim Willcox, who
had the difficult task of making
the calls, was nearly overcome by
the subtle evasions, the subdued
fright, and the sudden change of
expressions to which he was ex
posed. Never before had he seen *
suck. obvious attempts to suppress
emotion. Cautious approaches
and puzzled faces. Questioning
eyes and faltering glances. Hes
itant speech and twitching fin
gets Yes, and bewildered, pale
faced housemothers.
Charge Made
“You’ve been char ged with vio
lating a city traffic ordinance.
You are to appear in circuit
court tomorrow at one o’clock to
answer charges.” the patrolman
in uniform told hi3 victims.
“Well—uh, what for?” respond
ed one girl, quite bewildered.
“ME?" replied another as she
wrinkled her nose.
“Say, what is this?" exclaimed
one student as she indignantly
took the summons from the offi
cer’s hand.
Most of the organizations on
the campus were approached dur
ing the dinner hour. Laughter
and talk suddenly tapered off.
Girls stopped eating to exclaim,
“Hey, the law,” “Isn’t that an of
ficer?” or to whisper, “What has
she done?”
Some of the older girls wore
a knowing smile, for they had
previously become acquainted
with the law school’s method of
delivering invitatipns to their
biggest social event of the year,
the winter formal dance to be
held tonight.

Advance Given
By Educators
Superintendents H. B. Ferrin
of Cottage Grove and Homer J.
Dixon of Junction City enumer
ated ways of securing teaching
jobs at the school of education’s
junior faculty meeting Tuesday.
The speakers referred especial
ly to interviews, letters of appli
cation, preparation, and experi
Although the prospective teach
er should not “grill” the superin
tendent, he should be encouraged
to ask him about the type of
program the school is sponsoring,
advised Mr. Ferrin. The Cottage
Grove man also urged that teach
ers visit the prospective school
and community before signing a
contract, and emphasized person
al appearance to be of outstand
ing importance.
Students who feel themselves
to be “jacks of all trades,” do not
impress Mr. Ferrin, who would
rather the prospect identify him
self with fewer jobs well done.
Letters of application, accord
ing to Mr. Dixon, should contain
the following information in this
order of importance: (1) co-cur
ricular experiences in college, (2)
adequate preparation in teaching
fields, (3) Normal-school train
ing (preferred even with high
school teachers), (4) grades, but
not as all-important, for knowl
edge of adolescence and ability to
work with pupils should also he
counted, (5) does the individual
finish what he starts? (6) con
duct patterns, (7) is he frank—
will he admit that he is not ca
pable of doing a certain thing?
These letters should be sent to
the superintendent, not the school
The men also emphasized that
recommendations should be from
good sources, should be written
honestly and intelligently, and
should avoid trite expressions
such as “by and large,” “Although
not brilliant,” “generally speak
ing,”- etc. In place of such ex
pressions, specific examples of
activities in class, how problems
were met, and accurate data tend
better to identify the student.
The speakers suggested that
the University teacher-training
program could be improved by
keeping the young candidates as
close to teaching and learning in
the secondary schools as possible,
because there may be a tendency,
despite methods classes, to re
enter secondary schools and lec
ture in the manner of a Univer
sity professor to grade school
Superintendents Dixon and
Ferrin did not agree with a criti
cism which has been directed
against education graduates;
namely, that they were not able
to supplement the textbook with
rich illustrative source material.
