Students' Key To Knowledge-Reading;
It's In The Books' For M Learners
Puzzled Pupils Advised To Take Junior Division Class

Have you realized that reading

No matter what type of know
ledge you are looking for, it's in
Most of our studying involves
reading; but much of our read
ing does not concern what we
are studying. Textbooks can be
interesting, however, and they
are one of the best media of in
BUT WHAT of the poor stu
dent who does not understand
what he is reading? He can be
heard saying, "That professor
must be off his rocker! Did you
hear how much reading he has
assigned us for Friday?"
Then the puzzled student if
he is one of those rare individ
uals who studies sits down and
meticulously tries to digest the
reading assignment. He usually
manages to plow through about
one-third of it before he most go
to class, study another subject or
go out with the boys ... or
girls, as the case may be.
Out with the crowd, he in
variably finds some "smarty"
who has read two or three chap
ters in the time it took him to
cover eight pages. And miracu
lously the smarty understands
what he has read. Our typical
tudent begins to see the light
his reading is too slow, too poky,
too time consuming. j
LISTEN, LITTLE man, why
not travel quick like a flash to
Junior Division and sign up for
the next course in "How to Read
Better and Faster."
The final University-sponsored
three-week reading improvement
class opened Monday. During the
course, students will learn that
efficient reading does not involve
paying infinite attention to de
tails. Rapid readers generally
have better over-all comprehen
sion than slow, careful readers.
A typical student's potential
rate of understanding is approx
imately 25 to 50 per cent faster
than his habitual, untrained rate.
Imagine all the high grades and
extra coffee hours possible if
your reading comprehension rata
increased that much.
The University provides the
opportunity. Why not take ad
vantage of it? What can you lose,
Mr. Typical NU Student?
