the administration's evaluation of a teach
er than what the students might think.
"Word of bad teaching eventually al
ways gets back to the administration and
often indirectly through the students," he
"Also when it comes to Ibasic
classroom teaching," he said, "I think
most professors are glad to get student
opinion concerning improvements that
should and could be made. Many of us
use the questionnaire at the end of the
course so that we can improve."
He also stressed the fact that none of
this discussion should be interpreted to
mean that a faculty member should be
indifferent to students.
"Just because a faculty member is a
scholar," he said, "he does not have the
right to be a boor, a poor speaker, or to
teach without some basic plan and de
sign. "Scholarship and research do not ex
cuse poor grooming, lack of common de
cency and respect for individual students.
The truth is, most of the top scholars
that I know are also interesting personali
ties, with a nice sense of humor and deep
devotion to teaching and learning."
Knapp said that all factors of evalua
tion were taken in account on this campus
when a professor is rated.
"On this campus," he said, "you can
reach the highest level by just being a
Knapp said that even more than the
problem of evaluation he was concerned
about the University becoming a factory
where the students went to classes in the
day and then forgot completely about the
intellectual analyzing, searching and
thinking that they would be doing.
He said that the faculty, by becoming
too detached from the students, were al
so often responsible for this intellectual
"What we need." he said, "is for the
students to choose thirty or forty outstand
ing faculty members and build them
houses on the campus where students
could go at night and talk and learn from
the professor's knowledge both during the
day and informally at night."
He pointed out that when he was a
student at Harvard he visited every one
of his professor's homes, but that a stu
dent here seldom ever visits a professor's
home or learns anything outside the classroom.
Elected As 'Fellows
Two University physicists,
Professors Edgar Pearlstein
and John Weymouth, have
been elected Fellows of the
American Physical Society.
The honor is bestowed upon
those who have demonstrated
unusual achievement in
physics. Approximately one
member in 10 is accorded this
honor although most qualified
physicists are members of
"The election of Professors
Pearlstein and Weymouth is
a significant recognition of
their acknowledged stitus in
the profession, and confers
upon them a distinction which
is certainly merited," said
Dr. E. J. Zimmermen, chair
man of the University's de
partment of physics.
Pearlstein joined the facul
ty in 1956 and Weymouth
came to Nebraska in 1958.
Both men have conducted re
search in the field of solid
state physics and have ad
vised numerous graduate stu
dents. Weymouth holds A.B., M.A.
and Ph. D. degrees from the
University of California and
Pearlstein holds B.S. and
D. Sc. degrees from the Car
negie Institute of Technology.
