Central Michigan Life VOLUME 31 CENTRAL MICHIGAN COLLEGE. MT. PLEASANT, MICH.. WEDNESDAY, MAY 3. 1850 NUMBER 26 2400 Athletes Expected for Relays GROSSE IS VALEDICTORIAN German Student Takes Scholastic Honors For the first time in the history of the college a foreign student has been named valedictorian of the senior class. He is Hagen B. Grosse, 21-year-old German student. At the same time Hugh M. Franks, 27-year-old St. Louis senior, was named salutatorian by Dr. Davaid M. Trout, dean of students. Grosse is a native of Bremer- haven, Germany. He.entered Central in 1948 after attending schools in Berlin and Bremer- haven. His decision to enter Central revolved around an American soldier by the name of James Hughes, a former student here. * * * HUGHES, A NATIVE of Traverse City, was killed in an automobile accident in Michigan shortly before Grosse was to leave for Central. He admits it almost changed his mind about coming, as the two planned to attend school together. Grosse's scholastic achievements can be traced to a desire to make good for his deceased friend. However, he makes it clear that he believes ii is easier to get along scholastically in American schools than in German institutions. Grosse plans to return to Brem- erhaven in Jvly. He has been on a pre-law curiculum here, but he has decided that he will enter the export-import business with his father and either stay in Germany or go to South America. * * * FRANKS. GRADUATED from St. Louis High in 1940 and entered Central at the same time Grosse did. He attended the University of Michigan for two years and the University of Oregon for. a year under the Army Specialized Training Program. He entered the Army in .1943 and served in Germany both in combat and in the occupational forces. Next fall he will teach industrial arts at Alma High. Back to The Union We All Must Go Last week they closed the Annex. Although its life period was shorter than any other building on campus, it was the best- known institution in campus life for the average Central student. The Annex was opened October 20, 1947, and during, its .30 months existence has served as a gathering place for students at all hours of the day,' and especially from 9 to 10 at night. * * * ONCE THEY conducted a contest for a name for the Annex. It was decided to call it "Thp Reservation." But somehow the name never stuck (as nicknames never do unless they are spon-( taneous) and it will undoubtedly go down in history as the Annex. No longer will students and faculty members be able to waste time in the Annex. But knowing college siudenis( and faculty members) we're sure they will find another place where they can occupy their spare time. And the coffee will probably forever be the same no matter where it's served.

Dr. Richtmeyer stressed that in order for the program to be valuable, the students must make serious and "accurate ratings. Only when the students are honest and accurate is such a program of value to either the instructors or their students. * * * FACULTY RATING will be administered at the time of the last class meeting of each class, and the results will be made available only to the instructors in each case. They will not go into adminstrative channels. (An instructor may discuss his results with his department head or colleagues if he desires, however.) The rating scale will be divided into two general areas, personality of the instructor and his teaching skill and abil ity. Some illustrative points upon which the instructors' personalities will be rated are voice, personal mannerisms, and sense of humor. Some points upon which his teaching ability will be rated are his grading system, definiteness and reasonableness of assignments, assistance with students' difficulties, and the ability to awaken interest and effort in the student. In the first general area, the instructors will be rated on seven points and in the second on 19 points. * * lit MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE were: Bernice Berakovitch, Wyandotte junior; Edward Czarnecki, Turners Falls, Mass., senior and student senator; Ottilia Kaminske, assistant professor of commerce; Dr. Richtmeyer; and Warren Sarley, Niles junior and president of the student body.
