HASTEN THE PACE:
Education DeF
Course in Rem
By KEN LOWE
If your reading speed is only
slightly faster than that of a
chimpanzee and if you want to do
something about it. the education
department has just the course for
you.
The course, entitled "Remedial
Reading," is held in Rn. 4009,
University High School, on Tues-
days and Thursdays at 4:00 p.m.
It is under the direction of Prof.
Irving H. Anderson and employs
several recently-developed tech-
niques for goading sluggish read-
ers into stepping up their rate of
perusal.
Motion picures, for instance,
are used to flash stories on the
screen in a series of phrases. As
each new phrase appears on the
screen, the preceding phrase dis-
appears, forcing the reader to
move his eyes quickly across the
"page" with a minimum of eye
f ixations.
The films, produced at Harvard
University, were designed not only
to increase reading rates but also
to improve comprehension and re-
tention of what has been read.
Another device employed in the
course is an instrument, formid-
ably known as a tachistoscope,
which permits phrases to be ex-
posed on a screen for brief in-
tervals. The duration of the ex-
posure can be controlled to give,
an indication of the amount of

partnent Offers
redil Reading
time the student requires to grasp
a phrase.
No credit is given for the course,
but students report that the two
hours spent on it each week bring
big dividends in psychological in-
come.
Mitropoulos
Will Conduct
Dimitri Mitropoulos will con-
dust the Minneapolis Symphony
Orchestra in a concert set for 7
p.m. Sunday at Hill Auditomiur.
A limited number of tickets re-
main for the concert, fourth in the
University Musical Society's Ex-
tra Concert Series.
Features on the program will be
Mozart's "Jupiter" Symphony No,
41 in C Major. Chausson's Sym-
phony in B-flat Major will also be
featured.
Rounding out the program are
three pieces from "Damnation of
Faust" by Berlioz, and Beethoven's
"Leonore" Overture No. 3.
Now celebrating its forty-flifth
year, the Minneapolic Symphony
Orchestra has appeared twice be-
fore on campus, during the Choral
Union series of 1941 and 1942.

Open Meeting
TodayinUnion
World Government
Will Be Discussed
An open meeting of the United
World Federalists will be held at
7:30 p.m. today in the Union to
acquaint prospective members
with the beliefs and purposes of
the or-ganization.
Recognizing that most people
are in sympathy with the essence
of the movement but understand
little of the work and facts be-
hind it, Harry Blackwell, presi-
dent of UWF, states that the main
job confronting UWF is educa-
tion. "We want to acquaint stu-
dents with the advantages and
disadvantages of world govern-
ment and to keep them abreast
of what progress is being made.
By giving them the facts we hope
to convince them that. 'limited
world government to prevent
war,' is our best hope for the
future."
A tremendous amount of lit-
erature was distributed during
registration, he said. Additional
pamphlets written by professors
and students will be issued during
the semester.
Students interested in joining
are urged to attend the coming
meeting, he added.

The Ann Arbor Business School

group on campus, the Gargoyle
staff swept up all the odds and
ends of its long tenancy and print-
ed them in a mad effort to break
Eusian's strangle hold on trivia.
Wry Face
When asked whether Gargoyle
was worried over the impending
plagiarism suit over the Fearless
Fosdick feature in the coming is-
sue, the managing editor made a
wry face and refused comment.
It is rumored that the impending
plagiarism suit is the least of his
worries since several disinterested
parties have threatened to "beat
you head in if you r4m those pic-
tures."
Buck Dawson, Cinemagent and
Editor of Ensian, has predicted
the utter decline of Garg. His
comment was reported to have
been, "They ain't got a chance.
Look at the way the price of corn
is skidding. I give 'em just three
more issues after this one to fold
for the year." Oddly enough the
Gargoyle staff agrees with him.
Screwy Blue
Notwithstanding, the Gargoyle's
Housecleaning Issue, the one with
the screwy blue cover, will hit
campus Monday, February 16. It
is to be expected that it will be
hawked in loud raucous voices by
the same old crowd. Anyone wish-
ing to obtain a Gargoyle next
Monday without all the shouting
may obtain one in complete silence
for only a quarter over at the en-
gine arch.-
Meeting To Be Held
A college conference on inter-
national relations with delegates
from 80 colleges in four Midwest-
ern states attending will be held
March 19 and 20 at the Univer-
sity.
The conference will be sponsor-

sent similar clubs on college cam-
puses in Illinois, Indiana, Wiscon-
sin and Michigan.

Commercial Designs
To Be on Exhibition
Fifty-one examples of art as
used by business and industry will
be on display in the University
of Michigan's Museum of Art from
Sunday, Feb. 15 through Sunday,
March 7.
The traveling exhibition of
original designs and engravers'
proofs, entitled "26th Annual Na-
tional Exhibition of Advertising
and Editorial Art," has been care-
fully selected as a representative
group from the exhibition of the
same name held at the Metropoli-
'tan Museum of Art, New York
City.
The current exhibition is in-
tended to stress the importance
of maintaining in commercial art
standards of taste and craftsman-
ship as high as those prevailing
in the Fine Arts, Miss Helen Hall,
curator of the Museum of Art at
the University, said. It endeavors
to give recognition to art directors
who have displayed outstanding
taste in designing the printed
page and to the artists and pho-
tographers who have shown most
originality.
The traveling exhibition is on
tour under the auspices of The
American Federation of Arts,
Washington, D.C., and is spon-
sored by the Art Directors Club of

New York.
