on the defensive, will get to sit

have formulated some plans which
might prove troublesome to the

But in order to be fair, some of

in order.
In an article by Hal Boyle, a
few tips were given on how to

Here is the formula:
"Look for a man with circles

to do is convince him that If he
marries you he will get it."

pose described by its authors,
H. H. Rememrs and D. N. Elliott.
"No teacher has any choice
as to whether he will be 'rated'
by his students. Such rating
goes on in every classroom ev
erywhere. The only real choice
the teacher has is whether he
wants to know what these rat
ings are.
"Whether the students' judg
ment is correct is largely beside
the point. The real point is that
his attitude toward the teacher
and the course exists and is a
vital factor in the total learning
situation. The students' attitude
is probably next if not equal in
importance to his general learn
ing ability as a factor in his learn
ing, "If the instructor chooses to find

position to profit thereby. He will
have obtained the possibility of
control of one of the important
elements in the total learning

provide instructors witn toe

and reliably the attitude of his
students toward him and his
