Faculty votes Monday on teacher evaluation issue

Faculty t:;enate listens to Bob Thoreson explain_ing the teacher evaluation during a sesswn for the vote ot its approval. It was passed 16 for and -~ £Lga1nst,

President Huber cites results if tax override election should fail Palomar College will suffer a decline in the quality of education if the March 1:.:: tax override election fails,according to President Frederick R. Huber. He stated it was a "pass the tax measure or suffe r education consequences"' situation. ··It is incomprehensible to me that the community s~::rved by Pafomar CqJlege would want to see an abrupt _ero-' .!?ton of the program the collage has developed in the past 21 years," Dr. Huber said. The consequences of failure would cause a number .. of cutbacks to be inititated in the fall semester when a record ·number of 2800 or 3000 enrollees are expected . . Needed funds to accornodate the increase would not be available. Br. Huber said the money is needed to keep teachers salaries in line, replace equipment in labs and activity programs and to meet the expense of additional enrollment. Dr. Huber cited six cut back examples: 1. Adult education classes, with attendance of several hundred, will be curtailed severely to •continue' credit 2. The needed addition of i9 teach-· ers to the staff will not be possible. 3. Students will not be able to complete their programs in the normal twoyear period because classes will not be available to them. 4. Equipment breakdown and lack of replacement funds will hinder lab and vocational classes. 5. The county's first registered nurse program will be ended. It was started last year to meet a decline in the number of nurses available at local medical institutions. 6. A planned dental assistant program will not begin in September as scheduled. "The tax is for five years only, beginning in 1968. It is important that the public understand this. That means that the 19 cent increase would cost you $9.50 more on your tax bill," Dr. Huber stated. The override would be added to the present district tax rate of 35 cents. "The

.ASB council to study fall budget breakuown An ASB finance committee has been formed to investigate budget requirements and requests for next year's budget. The committee's first order of business is to investigate a proposed five per cent reduction on the prices· in the ASB bookstore. This reduction, according to ASB president Bob Thoreson, would mean $4,000 less money recei_ved _{_rom the bookstore Long range plans for the committee include researching the 44 different areas which receive ASB funds in order to decide on the budget allotments for the corning year. If the reduction of prices in the bookstore proposal is put into effect it will mean, according to Thoreson that -the difference in the amount of rnone~ corning in from the bookstore will' have to be compensated for by cutting other areas of the budget. The committee will look into the breakdown of use by each area which receives ~unds to determine if the money is being-used properlv. After it completes its research, the committee will recommend a budget breakdown to the ASB council. Members ot the · corn rn itt ee are Thoreson, chairman; Janis Rose, treasurer; .Scott Bowman; bebbie Hayward.; Joan Kattelrnann; Randy Hartman; John Rice; and Heather Hodson.

cost to the average property owner (assuming a $:.::0,000 horne assessed by the county at $5,000) would be only $9.50 per year, obviously a small sum to allow your district college to move forward," said Dr. Huber.

Teacher evaluation may come into ,effect next fall. The decision now lies · with the Faculty Association. Evaluation rating sheets on campus courses were passed by the Faculty Senate.J.ast Msaday. The course rating sheet was required to have a last factor in the rating scale: a •no opinion' item. This was passed unanimously in the form of an amendment to the main motion by Dr. Beauford Chambless. Using a roll call vote, the threepart, 21 question rating sheet was passed 16 for, two against, with two senators absent. The rating sheet covers content, presentation, and assignments iD its two pages. Space for additional comments is also provided. Dr. Chambless, who voted against the rating sheet, stated •I believe it is very favorable to have teacher evaluation as to presentation for the instructor's personal improvement but did not understand fully the other uses which the students envisioned.)) Palmer Kremer, who also voted against the rating sheet said, "We just had Qlle meeting to look the form over. It was . presented to us at that meeting. I wish only a little time to look it over .before I voted on it. Now that I have had that opportunity, I think it is a very good evaluation device." Before the voting of the passage of the form, Dr. Roland Phelps, teacher evaluation committee faculty chairman, stated that the device presented was !he result of man_y .hourB of work with

other evaluation sheets studied not only from Californian institutions, but from across the nation as well. "To improve instruction, but not to criticize, and to point out difficultiee of a course were the two main objectives the committee kept in mind in gathering the questions for fue sheet, •· stated Dr. Phelps. Between the faculty-student committee, meetings, Dr. Phelps consulted with the Professional Procedures committee of the Faculty As-s ociation --;:-g to the correctness of the Palomar rating sheet, added Dr. Phelps. Student speaking for the rating sheet were Rita Schrniat, teacher evaluation cornrnit~ee student chairman, and Bob Thoreson, student body president. About 40. students appeared at the Conference room meeting in support of the rating sheet. The concept ot teacher evaluation was started here over three semesters ago when the Young Democrats club was a discussion group. The Faculty Assoication aprroved the concJ:)pt of teacher evaluation last spring. _llrerrmfnary work was done oy a temporary committee, but was cut short with the ending of the spring semester. However the temporary committee did send requistions to colleges across the nation for their rating sheets. These sheets were used this ~ar by the 13 member teacher evaluation committee which has meet weekly since October. This committee produced the presented rating sheet.

The sixteen districs were decided upon by Theodore Kilman, aean of adult education and community services, according to response in the previous bond issue and to th~ density of voters in the area. The groups will meet at a designated place at which the volunteers will receive the materials they will be working with. Each campaigner will be equipped with a button, a ribbon, leaflets and a stack of "reminder to vote'~ cards. The students involved in the campaign are Debbie Hayward, Joan Kattelrnann., and Rita Schmidt for Vista, with Dean Burton as adult leader; Paul Hauptman and Fred Heuling for Escondido, with Dean Kilman and John Barlow, art instructor. as advisor; Linda Welch and Brice Larsen are in charge of the Fallbrook area. The ASB office will be the sign-up point for any additional volunteers. There are two consecutive Saturdays planned for the canvassing of the areas, March 2 and 9. OnMarch2, halfthe areas to be canvassed are hoped to be completed, and the othyr half taken care of the following Sahirday. ' Dean K il rn an and the s tude n tcarnoaigners will hola a meeting to discuss the reactions ot tne contacted voters. . Tbe dean also stated that girls must work in couples and that no one is allowed to enter a house. Dr. Beauford Chambless suggested that the students also sell tickets to a record dance to be held at Palomar on tne evening of March 2. Proceeds will go to campaign money for the tax override . . The suggestion was rejected because the council decided it would interfere with ,,the object ofthecampaign. Dean Bowman wtll keep the tickets in his office for students who wish to sell them. Paul Hauptman, ASB vice-president presented the idea of an ASB instant identification card, which would be laminated and contain a picture of the student. The card would cost the student $1 over the amount previously charged and would cost the ASB !l hout s;::JoOO to have printed. Hauptman said tnat having these new cards would end thepassingofASBcards among students at dan c e s and other school functions. The motion was tabled indefinitely.

Ayn Rand calls selective service· 'unconstitutional,' "The draft is clearlyunconl:!titutional." chlirged Miss Ayn Rand on tape Wednesday in P-7. "It will be found to be involuntary servitude,• she continued. About 40 person crowded into the relatively small room to hear Miss Rand condemn everything from foreign aid to the hanoling of the Vietnam War. The presentation was sponsored by the Studentsfor Radical Individualism club. Miss Rand said that the draft irnp!Hlsi that "man's lite belongs to the state. It says that man must pay the state for his rights , hi:s lite being the payrnen~ This is in direct contradiction of our system of government." She attacked "draft dodgers and Vietniks for being against the draft for the wrong reasons." A totally volunteer army, which she advocates, would "keep us out of ventures like Vietnam.'' said Miss Rand. "People will not fight for a corrupt government or it they don't know what they are gihting for. She said charges that a volunteer· military wouw cost too much are UIJ.fOunded. "Best estimates are $4 billion a year. We spend $4.5 (a year) .on fore_ign aid and $5.5 (a year) on space programs, and people say we can-t afford a volunteer army." The draft is used by the federal government to hold the populace at ba__y, according to Miss Rand, by constantly saying that "a man owes his lUe to the state, in return for his right. The only alternative left to the u.s. in Vietnam," she said, iB to .. hurry up and win it.'' Miss Rand stated that she was opposed to the U.S. entering the conflict in the first place. "There is no proper solution to the war. It is a war we never should have entered. It is the culmination of 50 years of suicidal foreign policy. "They tell us Communist aggression must be contained in Asia, but not in Africa. They tell us Communist agression must be contained in Vietnam, but not in Europe. They tell UB North Vietnam is a threat to us,. but Cuba is not. No wonder there is a credibility gap. "Our government calls Vietnam a •cold war/~- said Miss Rand, ~but a war is a war, no matter what temperature you choose to call it."

Southwestern dumps Palomar golfers

It wasn't the bottom of the tenth inning an overtime basketball game, or a long pass at the gun of a football game, but Saturday·s Pacific Southwest Conference Relays had nearly as much excitement and tension as Palomar ·tied- with Grossmont for the title . And for the deciding event--well , it was the triple jump (hop, skip and jump if you prefer) that had that distinction. About 75 of the 100 visiting sp e ctators and athletes, all surrounding the runway and pit, stayed to see the final event and tabulation of the scoring. Tom Reis wasn't expected to do very well in the ewmt. since he has only jumped about Z5' tlmes.However. 'Reis placed fourth wiTh a 43-9 3/4 leap -- only three inches fron the Palomar recor<f. Palomar had a two point lead going into the event but defending meet record holder Wesley Williams and Grossmont's Lucky Fleming finished 1-2 to put their sclioo1s ahead. Depending on how Palomar finished or if Mesa or Grossmont _ placed in the top five, any number of ties could have developed. The most nervous person in the crowd seemed to be the Comets· track and field coach, Doc Marrin. Guiding the squad in his first year here , Marrin made a big splash upon arriving on the campus last fall when he coached the cross country to a PSC title, the Comets second championship in any sport in four years. Saturday Marrin was never in one place, dashing from scorer·s table, to athletes, to microphone and back to ··hi~:> 11 competitors.
