the "discreetly" method the units ap-
pear and disappear in series;- in the
"continuous" method each unit, as;
it appears, is permitted to remain on'
the screen. In both instances the
reader attempts to keep pace with
the rate of exposure, with the view,
of grasping as much of the materials,
as he is able in one reading.;
When this treatment is repeated,
students have been trained to in-
crease their reading efficiency by as
'much as 52 per cent, experiments'
have shown.
At the beginning of the training
the reading material used is simple,
the size of the units is small, and
the projection rate is slow. As the
procedure continues, all of' these
factors are changed to step the stu-
dent up to the tempo of the train-
ing. , At the end the reading rate is
frequently accelerated to something
like 500 words per minute.
Films for the treatment may be
projected on any suitable surface.
Many films, of 16 mm. size are avail-
able for the treatment.
After students have read a picture
their progress is checked by several
tests and examinations. As progress
is measured, the treatments are re-
. vised to correspond to the recorded
improvement. When reading skill
becomes great enough, the procedure
is ha ted.

Scientist Wil
Lecture Here
On Deception
Combining the deception of a ma-
gician and the science of a biological
research worker, Dr. Francis G. Bene-
dict, former director of the Nutrition
Laboratory of the Carnegie Institution
of Washington in Boston, will bring
the campus a baffling lecture on,
"Science and the Art of Deception"
at 4:15 p.m. next Wednesday in the
Lecture Hall of the Rackham Build-
Mere sleight-of-hand and me-
chanical devices used by Dr. Bene-
dict's professional brethren in the
Society of American Magicians are
not for him, he says, because "I try
to use effects that seem violations of
the laws of physics and chemistry.
These have more than an entertain-
ment value, these aire challenging to
Dr. Benedict's lecture and magic
show emphasize the absence of com-
plicated paraphernalia, and special
stage equipment. He uses only the
simplest properties and effects his
magic under the close scrutiny of a
group chosen from the audience.
Only last year, Dr. Benedict con-
ducted a triumphant tour of the
nation presenting his lecture which
is entitled "Science and the Art of
Deception." His performances have
been received by capacity audiences
at the University of California, Stan-
ford, Ohio State and Yale.
Dr. Benedict reiterates that his is
essentially not a show, but an educa-
tional feature-and his career pro-
vides ample justification for his as-

his development of modern analytical
