Teaching, more than most other professions, has been transformed during the last hundred years from a small, highly skilled profession concerned with a minority of the population, to a large and important branch of public service. The profession has a great and honourable tradition, extending from the dawn of history until recent times, but any teacher in the modern world who allows himself to be inspired by the ideals of his predecessors is likely to be made sharply aware that it is not his function to teach what he thinks, but to instil such beliefs and prejudices as are thought useful by his employers.

The manager of a well-known firm was interviewing applicants for the post of a night watchman he had advertised. He was very hard to please and always found something wrong with each man—one had long hair, another small eyes, a third was too thin and another too tall. Among the applicants interviewed by the manager for the post was one Ram Kishan. He watched all this as he sat in the verandah patiently waiting for his turn to be interviewed. He resolved to be prepared for anything. When his turn came, all went well. The manager found nothing wrong with his appearance, size or constitution. He was so handsome, tall and strong that the manager was really pleased to see such a well-built young man. “Is your health sound?”, said the manager at last. “No sir”, replied Ram Kishan, “not quite. I suffer from one serious complaint.” “What’s that?” asked the manager sharply.

During their last year at school, a teacher gave his students a questionnaire about Life Skills. One conscientious student had breezed through the questions until he read the last one: “What is the first name of the woman who cleans at your floor in the school?’’ Surely this was some kind of joke. He had seen the cleaner several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would he know her name? He handed in his paper, leaving the last question blank. Just before the class ended, the student asked if the last question was important. “Absolutely”, said the teacher. “In your career, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is learn their name, smile and say ‘hello’”. That afternoon, the student found the cleaner. “I wanted to thank you for the work you do”, he said. “May I ask your name?”

One of them, a very wealthy man said, “I will stop him being so cheerful and singing all the time.” He went to the poor man’s house while he was away and threw a bag of money into his room. When the poor man came home, he was very happy at first and cheerfully hid the bag of money. Soon, however, he began to fear it might be stolen or he might be accused of having stolen it, and he ceased to be cheerful and to sing. After a time, the rich man asked him, what made him so thin and sad. At first he did not dare to say but when the rich man told him that he knew

We all know what posters are. In these modern days of advertising, there is scarcely a road along which we travel without passing one or other examples of the poster adviser’s activity. These posters vary in type from illuminated, electric signs with their flashing, alternating lights, to the small hand-painted effusions which advertise local concerts in the village halls. Before we attempt a detailed study of the methods by which poster hoardings are filled with eye-catching designs, let us examine one or two basic principles which would apply to any well-planned poster campaign. In the place we must appreciate that our poster will be read, in most cases, by a mobile public. It differs from the press advertisements in that it is not carried into the home or office and read at leisure. It remains in one place, and its message, therefore, must be capable of being assimilated by the reader
who is passing, often in a hurry, with other and more important business in his mind. Again, unlike the press advertisement, the poster cannot carry a long and detailed message: the man in the street has not sufficient time to read it in these days of haste and bustle.

(1) critical (2) analytical (3) formal (4) objective

23. The most striking feature of a poster is that it

24. Which of the following is most likely to make a poster deliver its purpose well?

(1) It reaches far and wide.

(3) It does not require illustrations or eye-catching pictures.
