In the court of Judge William K. Thomas, over in Cleveland last week, a damage suit was in trial. In the course of testimony a witness, asked for an interpretation of the term "specialist" came up with a definition which we have a feeling may stand unchallenged for quite some time: "A specialist," he said, "is one step above a man who gets paid overtime."
A teacher being interviewed for a job in a modern junior high school with a dynamic curriculum was asked if she had taught previously at the secondary level.
"In junior high school?"
"In grade eight?"
"Integration of subject matter in the block-of-time in grade eight?"
"No, no integration of subject matter."
"Sorry, we need a specialist."
