For Barrow, the loss of the positions is only a symp

problem lies in the University's budgetary process.

At Last!! A Locally Owned and Operated Rapid Reading and Reading
Enrichment Lab.
More Than
Speed Reading
The . State College Reading Lab will offer a 5 week course in Rapid Reading to
qualified people in the Centre Region. This program is based on solid
research and is not just a "speed reading" course, but rather a combined rapid
reading, comprehension, and study skills program. The program places
special emphasis on the reading of technical material, and the program also
will help you read different material at different rates.
Just 5 sessions . . .
Our program reduces classrooM time to only one class per week for only five
weeks. In addition, students who complete the classroom instruction and the
outside practice will receive at no cost, a reading enrichment course on
cassette tape.
Guaranteed Results . . .
You will triple your current reading speed, or your tuition will be refunded. In
fact, our typical students increase their rate 3 to 5 times after completing just
the classroom part of our program. That translates to speeds of 1000 to 4500
words per minute. Improved comprehension skills can be expected.
Reasonable Tuition . . . Less than 1 / 2 the others.
If you have always wanted to become a more effective reader, but you have
found the typical speed reading course too time-consuming, too expensive,
and too rapid this summer you can turn things around before finals.
Free Lectures . . .
