Finally representatives from the
School of Education and College
of Literature, Science and the Arts
met with E. Lowell Kelly, direc-
tor of the Bureau, and the read-
ing service was established.
The courses at the Center are
non-credit and require no tui-

reader is the only necessary quali-
Led by Donald E. P. Smith, chief
of the Reading Improvement Serv-
ice and his graduate student as-
sistants, the Center instructs more
than 900 students a year. How to
read faster with better comprehen-
sion, study methods, preparations
for exams and the development of
a better vocabulary are stressed
during the course.
Four Classes A Year
There is a , cries of four classes
a year, two a semester, lasting
seven weeks each. Meeting twice a
week for an hour, the students also
practice one hour in-between
"Reading speed is increased with
the help of a machine in which
the book is placed," a student com-
I-Hop petitioning for com-

shade comes down over the page
at a set speed. To obtain the in-
formation we must keep ahead of
the shade," she continued. "A test
is taken after the reading has
been completed so that we can
test our comprohension."
After much practice with the
machine students find that they
have improved greatly.
Smith declared that after exten-
sive tests he has found that stu-
dents who have taken the course
usually have a better over-all
grade average than those who have
not been exposed to the reading
He added that the Center is be-
coming increasingly more popular
as more and more students wish to
increase their reading ability and
ultimately their marks.
