The senator gave a detailed ac-<

Pierre Salinger's mission to the
Paris peace talks on Vietnam, say-

problem, he was perhaps too open:
in discussing the matter.
McGovern said his original
statement-in which he denied in-

WILKES-BARR, Pa. (AP)-Pres-
ident Nixon dropped in unan-

yesterday and took on the role of
genial benefactor for flood victims.
The President made his unex-
pected decision to fly to Wilkes-
Barre by helicopter from his Camp
David retreat, after conferring
with Frank Carlucci his adminis-
trator of federal aid for those who
lost homes and businesses in the
Imassive floods triggered by Tropi-
cal Storm Agnes.
Flood relief has become an issue
in the 1972 presidential campaign,
at least in Pennsylvania.
Nixon's Democratic opponent,
Sen. George McGovern, made a
quick trip to the area earlier to
talk with those who feel federal
help should flow faster.
Nixon made things happen in a
hurry as he toured devastated sec-
One man reported he was living'
in an attic with his wife. The
President turned to Carlucci, who
made the helicopter trip with him
and said the federal government
should provide the family with a
mobile home to use until their own
dwelling is repaired.
Carlucci had a whispered con-
versation with one of his aides and
then told the man, Frank Vivian,

In the first grade, when you were taught
to read "Run Spot Run," you had to read it
out loud. Word-by-word. Later, in the second
grade, you were asked to read silently. But
you couldn't do it.
You stopped reading out loud, but you
continued to say every word to yourself.
Chances are, you're doing it right now.
This means that you read only as fast
as you talk. About 250 to 300 words per
minute. (Guiness' Book of World Records
lists John F'. Kennedy as delivering the fast-
est speech on record: 327 words per
The Evelyn Wood Course teaches you
to read without mentally saying each word
to yourself. Instead of reading one word at
a time, you'll learn to read groups of words.

and it grows

With training, you'll learn to use your
innate ability to see groups of words.
As an Evelyn Wood graduate, you'll be
able to read between 1,000 and 3,000
words per minute . . . depending on the
difficulty of the material.
At 1,000 words per minute, you'll be
able to read a text book like Hofstadtler's
American Political Tradition and finish
each chapter in 11 minutes.
At 2,000 words per minute, you'll be
able to read a magazine like Time or News-

week and finish each page in 31 seconds.
At 3,000 words per minute, you'll be
able to read the 447 page novel The God-
father in 1 hour and 4 minutes.
These are documented statistics based
on the results of the 450,000 people who
have enrolled in the Evelyn Wood course
since its inception in 1959.
The course isn't complicated. There
are no machines. There are no notes to
take. And you don't have to memorize any-
95% of our graduates have improved
their reading ability by an average of 4.7
times. On rare occasions, a graduate's read-
ing ability isn't improved by at least 3 times.

We'll show you how it's possible to
accelerate your speed without skipping a
single word. You'll have a chance to try your
hand at it, and before it's over, you'll actually
increase your reading speed. (You'll only
increase it a little, but it's a start.)
