New Training Center
Receives Approval
To Acquaint National Businessmen
With Nebraska Firms. Resources
A unique Nebraska training
renter for national business
executives who win work in
Latin America received un
animous approval from the
Board of Regents Friday.
In addition to training the
executives, the center will
also acquaint the national
firms with Nebraska and its
resources, the director of the
University1 Latin America
program said.
'You can well imagine the
impact -of this on the busi
ness of the community and
state," said Dr. Robert Es-quenaa-Mayo,
director of the
University's new Institute of
Latin American and Interna
tional Studies.
The center, the first of its
iind in the nation, according
to Esquenazi - Mayo, win
"'bring high executives -of
American firms here for four
weeks of study at the Nebras
ka Center.'"
This year's Faculty Evalu
ation Booklet will go on sale
this week, according to Tom
Morgan, chairman of the
ASUN Faculty Evaluation
Morgan said the exact date
of publication will depend on
the rate at which production
is completed. He expressed
bis hope that the booklets
would be ready for release
Publication of the booklet is
scheduled to coincide with
student registration for -second
semester. Faculty evalua
tions included in the booklet
can aid students in register
ing for their coursework, Mor
gan explained.
The booklet can also be of
value to students having an
evaluated instructor, be
pointed out, because it can aid
them in understanding his
presentation and demands.

Although the Univer

indicated that the University
could provide well-qualified
experts in all areas of study.

New Evaluation Booklet
More Comprehensive
This year's publication is
considerably larger and more
comprehensive, Morgan said.
Over 200 of the 600 full-time
faculty members are eval
uated nearly double, the
number covered last year.
Evaluations of each instruc
tor were written from ques
tionnaires distributed by
teachers on a volunteer basis.
The committee revised "these
questionnaires to a great ex
tent in order to gauge other
aspects of a teacher's effec
tiveness besides his class
room presentation.
With the aid of the Univer
sity's computer facilities, the
committee was able to anayl
yze four basic areas about
each teacher: h i s presenta
tion, testing and examina
tions, assigned material and
other general information.
The history of the faculty
evaluation idea extends back
to 19C5, lie aai, vara ASUN
branches or subsidiaries, Esquenazi-Mayo
The seminars will be self
supporting, he added, since
the firms are willing to pay
the cost -of the training.
Edward Lumsden of Mexi
co City, Mexico, was ap
pointed as coordinator of the
seminar and to make .ar
rangements with firms inter
ested in the program.
With degrees from Colum
bia University, Lumsden has
background in Latin
American affairs, having
served as director of Latin
American operations for
Time-Life Inc.. from 1952 to
University faculty and guest
lecturers will develop inten
sive study programs on Latin
America in the areas -of cul
ture, history, geography, an
thropology, art. language, ec
onomics and political science.
University of Nebraska's
President Kent Neumister
and Vice - President Larry
F r 0 1 i k initiated a faculty
evaluation committee in ful
fillment .of a -campaign prom
ise. Several attempts to launch
the program were made in
the early part of that school
year. Committee members
distributed questionnaires in
bulk to the general student
body and these students were
asked to evaluate their in
structors on a voluntary ba
sis. "Morgan said the returns
from this approach were
small, making it impossible
to draw definitive -conclusions
about the evaluated instruc
tors. Later in the year, the
committee adopted question
naire distribution system sim
ilar to the present one.
Questionnaires given out in
the classroom in the spring of
1966 became the basis lor last

actor, songwriter and singer,

ability of Irving Berlin,
the comedy of Buster Keaton
and the searing vocal inten
sity of Edith Piaf ," according
to Life magazine.
The magazine added that
Aznavour is the latest in a
noble line of French perform
ers for which there is no
American equal the itinerant
music hall star who puts -on a
one man show in a series of
one-night stands.
The actor first appeared in
the United States in 1963 at
Carnegie Hall, where he per
formed b e f 0 r e a sell-out
-crowd. Since that time he has
been invited to return several
times to San Francisco, Bos
ton, New York and Los An
geles. Record albums of the songs
that Aznavour writes and
sings are available in the
United States. He has also ap
peared in two films which
have been released in this
-country -"Shoot the Piano
Player" and "Tomorrow is
My Turn."
The great demand for the
booklets depleted the initial
printing in a matter of hours,
Morgan said, adding that fi
nal sales topped the 750 mark.
This year 1,250 booklets will
be issued in a single printing.
As faculty members adjust
to having their presentations
evaluated, support for the
booklet should grow among
instructors, Morgan said.

publicity for her pacifistic
stand concerning the Vietnam
war as for her success in the
field of music.

campaign against income tax.
