Abstract

IN common with all sections of the community, technical teachers find the progress of the War marked by increasing demands upon them. Apart from special courses, the average experience appears to be of a large increase in the part-time day classes of the colleges and the maintenance of evening or the substituted week-end classes at something approaching their normal level. To cater for these with, in many cases, depleted staffs has called for sacrifices of many of our cherished ideas as to conditions of service-changes in hours of duty per week, sizes of classes and suitability of accommodation for classes -which will demand the watchful care of the Association if they are to be regarded as temporary expedients and not precedents.
