Evolution, rather than revolution, is the keynote of all administrative decisions aimed at helping the college berrer serve both the community and its students. I3asic in the aims of the college p rogram is the helping of the prospective teachers co grow in un dersta nding the physical and mental problems met in teaching. The college assists the future teacher in becoming a cre:uive being, in understanding h im self and his environm ent, in understanding others and their problems, and in instilling in him the urge co accept his place as a worthwhile, productive member of the society in which he lives.

Because the conti nued success of our way of life rests on the education of those who will be tomorrow's citizens, the administration has established a recruiting program tO help overcome today's teacher shortage. To better help the student find his place in both the campus world and the comp etitive outside world, the administration also includes a placement service tO help both g raduates and stude nts find positions. In collaboration with the college deans and supervisers, this department also handles student counseling, housing and financial matters.

Education and Psychology

Cenrral in any college of education is the Division of Education and Psychology. Courses in understanding boch the physical and mental processes of their scudenrs are offered prospective teachers. Training in the fundamental skills of education are also presented and a particularly outstanding feature of the division is an observation-particip ation program.

M. Peterson instructs a first grade reading class.

Both physical and mental development are stressed in the field of physical education. Utilizing the new Memorial Hall building, the department promotes reasonable thinking and action as well as good sportSmanship and fair and democratic play. New and better services, meanwhile, are constantly being offered by the health office in the interest of the physical well being of the entire student body.

language and literature

Courses in English, French and Spanish are offered by the college. Courses in hwnanities integrate the department with the art department by drawing together the five major branches- literature, painting, sculptu re, music and ard1irecrure. Work in this field may center around speech fundamentals or around literature. The courses of Mr. Behling, away on sabbatical this year, were taken by Miss Magda T alle, Mrs. E. D. Whiting and Edward Jacobsen.

Creation is a compelling word. To meet the needs of those so talented, programs of both industrial and fine arts arc carried out on campus. The former offers courses in crafts, woodworking, metal working, priming, drawing and work with power equipment. The courses of the fine arts offer basic teaching skills to the prospective teacher as well as opportunity to develop genuine artistic ability. Specialized work is also offered for the more serious artist. G. Acheff and C. Henthorne study still¡life techniques.

Mathematics and Science

A promotion of understanding of the technological advances of the past century as well as the training of future teachers of science is the goal of the Science Department. It attains the goal through a three-fold program of research, lecture and field trips.

Why and how man acts in his society is the concern of the Social Studies Division. The institutions of the past are considered a constant source of practical ideas and a ready-made storehouse of interesting facts. Their study brings about an understanding and appreciation of our progress. T he studenr interested in either business administration or the teaching of business subjects fi nds tbat the business department has brought an enriched and adequate program to the campus. Both the Bachelor of Arrs and the Bachelor of Science degree are awarded in the business field.

Phelps School M. Wedul.

"Constant progress in methods and knowledge" might well be the slogan of Phelps Laboratory School. In the school, where college and grammer students learn side by side, no effort is made to enroll either the exceptionally bright child, or the exceptionally slow. Rather, it is the aim to provide as normal a cross-section for the student reacher as possible. Also serving as a laboratory for teaching methods and curriculum testing, it provides opportunity for student teachers to take parr in co-curricular activities. The school also provides opportunity for students, educatOrs and laymen to observe modern teaching methods in order that greater understanding of the teaching situation may be obtained by all.

A genuine effort is constantly being made by dormitory and college office workers to make the student a real citizen of the campus world. The realization that dor. mirory life and contact with the college business office is a very real part of the campus world has placed special emphasis on the service offered by this division. The accent in these departments has been placed on student welfare.
