By DIANE LABAKAS
A valuable service is being of-
fered studentsby the Universtiy
Reading Improvement Service lo-
cated in the basement of Univer-
sity Elementary School.
Each semester, reading im-
provement classes are set up by
Dr. Donald E. P. Smith, Improve-
ment Service chief, and his staff
to assist students in their reading,
vocabulary, note taking, examin-
ation preparation and other aca-I
demic skills.
The primary service function
consists of a seven-week noncred-
it, nontuition course. Classes of
approximately 20 students meetj
semiweekly for one hour periods
and 40 to 50 such groups are or-
ganized each year.
Another one to 200 students are
tutored individually. These stu-
dents are generally late regis-
trants with urgent academic prob-
lems.
Common Complaint
"Our most common complaint
is our waiting list," Smith said.
"Each semester applications out-1
number vacancies by some 50 per4
cent. However, students usuallyl
do not have to wait more than one
semester."
He explained it would be diffi-
cult for the group to move to a
new building on North Campus
because "we must be centrally lo-
cated in order to be within rea-
sonable distance of the students."
Freshmen comprise the Serv-
ice's largest group of clients, grad-
uates rank second. Public school
children also attend the Service
and are charged a small fee.
All students are screened diag-
nostically to determine level of
reading skills, vision and person-

chairman.
Two fellowships will be offered
in an exchange program with the
University of Oxford and the Uni-
versity of London.
Those eligible under the newly
created Alumni Student Leader-
ship Fellowship "must be accept-
able to the University of Michigan
Graduate School and have shown
leadership in some phase of stu-
dent activities," Miss Woodard
said.

The grants will be the equivalei
of $1,600 a year for each studen
Miss Woodard added.
Petitions may be obtained fro
the SGC Secretary in 2017 Stu
dent Activities Bldg. Interviewin

Harry Lunn, '54. former Dai
editor and past National Studen
Association president, with oth

ality structure. Continuing diag-
nosis is considered essential,
Smith said.
When a student does not im-
prove rapidly, he is interviewed to
determine symptoms relating to
motivation, personal problems and
physical abnormalities.
Hells Grade Average
"A recent study shows that stu-
dents who take the course do bet-
ter in their grade point average
and continuation at the Univer-
sity than those who have applied
but have been required to wait,"
Smith asserted.
Staff training and research are
other functions performed by the
Service. Smith declared that

"from the viewpoint of long-term'
contribution, the research func-
tion is one of the Service's more
important activities."
Other research projects include
evaluation of the Service, studies
of teaching methods in relation to
student personality structure, Ser-
vice drop-outs and new techniques
for evaluating reading compre-
hension'.

If you desire year around security, like beautiful sur-
roundings, and want a position of love and respect where
you really feel needed this may be your opportunity.
A liberal salary plus board and room, regular raises and
paid vacations, await right parties. For full information
write or call Rev. Gordon C. Blossom, Director of Home
Life, Starr Commonwealth, Route No. 2, Albion, Michi-
gan. Those sending age and phone number will receive
earliest consideration.
