Faculty Rating Slated Again
March Date Set
For Taking Poll
Faculty rating will be held this
term under the direction of Mortar
Board with Mildred Chetty as
chairman, ASUO President Art
Johnson announced Sunday.
Actual rating will be done in
classes early in March with es
sentially the same form of ques
tionnaire and manner of rating
used last spring term.
The rating, initiated at Oregon
last spring, is given only to those
professors who request it.
Questions Listed
Questions asked include the stu
dent’s judgement on the professor’s
testing methods, effectiveness of
lectures, disturbing mannerisms,
and similar subjects.
Reasons for using the same form
which was used previously are (1)
reports from other schools and
Oregon students and faculty mem
bers seem to indicate that it was
essentially a good form and a suc
cessful program; and (2) it was
felt that the rating should be done
this term, and in order to accomp
lish this the same forms must be
Offers Advantages
Student workers expressed the
opinion that giving the rating this
term would be advantageous to
professors, who could utilize its
suggestions during spring term
classes. They believe that many
students change courses to get
professors whom they particularly
like by spring term; therefore, a
spring rating would be less critical
and hence less valuable to the pro
fessors involved.
Students will rate their profes
sors during class periods. Student
workers will collect the forms and

Little Bit of Dough
Gets Big Results
You know those dreary little
classified ads that are tucked
away in the middle of the paper?
Well, they do have some effect.
And the Emerald thinks it is
about time they came out on their
own, and shout their virtues. So
when students get bargains, or
find lost items, or sell things
through classifieds, the informa
tion will be passed on—with the
advertiser’s permission.
To start things rolling, Jean
Lovel, Emerald circulation man
ager, has faith in her own ad side.
It cost her §1.44 to run a lost
ad for three days, but she did get
results. A professor in the chem
istry department noticed the ad,
and returned a lost ring to Miss
Now take the value of the ring
(sentimental and in hard, cold
cash) and subtract the cost of the
classified ad, and you can see the
ad was worth it.
Besides, if Miss Lovell ever
wants to take chemistry, she has
a conversational topic in com
mon with a professor.
Asked in Talk
At Drama Meet
An appeal for the continuance
of a healthy, vigorous non-profes
sional theater by Barrett H. Clark,
noted theatrical scholar and edu
cator, closed the third annual
Northwest Drama Conference Sat
Speaking before the closing ses
sion of the three-day conference
in the University Theater, Mr.
Clark spoke highly of the acomp
lishments of little theaters, col
lege theaters and other non-pro
fessional groups. He deplored the
trend toward a national theater
which would bind all the independ
ent groups together.
New Development
Clark pointed out that during
our lifetime we have seen a whole
new development of the theater
and added that the same vigorous
1 process of expansion in the little
theater field is continuing. A na
tional theater, said the New York
drama critic, could do very little
more for the non-professional
theater than this group has already
done for itself.
He discussed reasons for the
popularity of the theater. “We
don’t go to increase our stock of
culture and information,” he said,
“but to satisfy a need to take with

Reviewer Hails
Kenton as Tops
(Note: Fred Young, Emerald
columnist and music critic, went
to Portland Saturday to review
the Stan Kenton concert. Fol
lowing is his report.)
Don’t miss him! That’s what
t’ve told those who have asked me
about Kenton's Portland concert.
And, I would include anybody in
that who appreciates fresh sounds,
simplicity or complexity of struc
ture, rhythm explorations, or
plainly good music.
For me it was a musical treat
that might not have come even
once in a lifetime were it not for
the resourcefulness of the pro
gressive minded Stan Kenton in
assembling an array of the na
tion’s most creative composers to
write for his orchestra of top mu
