Blessed Is the Born Teacher
It's said that a student will get as much out of a class as
lie puts into it. That is removing responsibility from the pro
fessor. The maxim should be, “A student will get as much out
of a class as he is inspired to want to get out of it.
The ability to create this desire to learn is one way in which
a teacher can cxcell over a textbook. 1 he good teacher, by
his attitudes and methods can open the door through which
his pupils to pass to a liking, and an understanding of the sub
ject, and sometimes the lust of an explorer to go on in the field.
But rare is the man whose enthusiasm makes a dry course
live, who creates interest where it did not exist. It s hard to
define this spark which can enkindle the greenest of scholar
material. Usually the instructor loves the course he teaches
well, so perhaps it is just the quality of contagion that is in
anv great love. Yet this communicable enthusiasm is not i.’.i
the makeup of every scientist and scholar who is lecturing on
his field of main interest. It may be that there truly is such
a thing as a “born teacher.” Yet some in the teaching profes
sion might blame less on heredity and fry to show the student
the usefullness of the subject at hand and the fascination of
One thing is certain, though. Tt is not necessary to make
ingratiating jokes, tell irrelevant stories or give easy tests to
be the donor of the key to broader interests. Nor will stringent
methods of making students “pay attention” in classes make
their attention productive. Over and above what they would
glean anyway, they will learn only as much more as they are
inspired to learn.
Blessed, then, is the teacher who tries to be a “born teach
er;” who looks in two places for the source of every poor
grade: at the student and his study habits, and at himself and
his teaching habits. N.H.

Stoo bad we don t go to press until luesaay. Deems mvc
all the best radio news cracks on Monday and then it s too
late. But, doubtless, you were all glued to the radio last night
during the Dewey-Stassen fracas, (or Stassen-Dewey, to
show that we are non-partial). When you think about it,
though, it’s pretty nice to sit in the comfort of your room and
just snap a dial to get a wide variety of entertainment. (We
now proceed to get out our hankies and dab our eyes.) But
now to the business at hand!
Found a fine program lor vets. Name o’ 'The "Veteran
Wants to Know” . . . (Sunday KORE 10:45 a.m.). Show is
written and produced by Fred Fiske, himself a veteran. Show
comes from Washington D.C. and sheds light on all veteran
legislation. Fiske manages to get a whale of a lot of informa
tion over in 15 minutes even to an interview with a congress
man each week concerning vets. This is straight dope from
the original source . . . catch it!
For the benefit of the kiddies, we might make a comment
on those late afternoon serials, such as Captain Midnight, Sky
King, Superman. Not that we would stoop so low as to listen
to same, but some weeks ago, there was a movement on foot
in web (meaning network) circles, to change all 15 serial
shows which run five days a week, TO half-hour shows three
times a week, WITH a complete story each time, bo far we
have noticed only one show that has made the change, i.e.,
Jack Armstrong, the Alllllll American Boy. Ah well.
Newsweek magazine noticed our remarks re the April 29
V.D. documentary, and came out (3 days later)-with almost
identical comments. All right, we’ll stop. Our back and hand
are getting sore. Actually, Newsweek had some significant
statistics (try saying “significant statistics” fast). The Amer
ican Broadcasting Co. switchboard was plagued with calls
from irate conservatives before and during the broadcast. But
praises, acording to the Newsweek source, outnumbered con
A bevy of French accents (some authentic) forced us to

well done. This particular "one caught the fine irony of the
book. Time: Sunday, 10:30 a.m.
EOS ANGELES, May 17—(UP). The Don Lee Broadcast
ing system will ban all political speeches from its radio nework
until candidates are “officially selected,” Lewis Allen Weiss,
vice-president of the network, said Monday.
Where presidential candidates are concerned, they will be
considered officially selected after they have been picked by
their party conventions.
The network, however, will carry Monday night’s debate
between Harold E. Stassen and Thomas E. Dewey, candidates
for the Republican presidential nomination, on the question of
outlawing the Communist party.
A spokesman said that did not conflict with the general
policy because the debate was “of wide public news interest.”
