LOIS mind, which By L.M.S. little like a sport: your eagerness and knowledge and quickness count for something. The fun of reading is not that something is told to you, but that you stretch your mind. Your own imagination works along with the author's or even goes beyond his. Your experience, compared with his, yields the same or different conclusions, and your ideas develop as you understand his." Visitors watching the reading Thursday night at the Book Fair could determine their reading speed by asking the Kansas City Audio- Visual representative at what speed the words on the tape were moving. It seems that 200 words a minute is found to be a common average. According to Mr. Adler, most persons can double, triple or even quadruple their reading speed with no loss of comprehension and with some gain. He pointed out that if children in the lower grades learn good basic reading skills there will be much less need for remedial training later. Tapes used with the machine he demonstrated are correlated with texts used in schools at present. After children use the machine and read a story, they take comprehension tests to determine the effectiveness. Aims of the reading machine are to give the child better directional attack, to reduce eye stops, to reduce regression, and to help the child to think fast and remember. A moving slot showing words is set to go slightly faster than a group can read to urge them forward rather than go back and reread or waste time. It is set to challenge them, and, above all, to build comprehension. It is easy to believe Dorothy Paul, of Topeka, when she tells that her hobby is meeting authors. As she talked about several new books during the Thrusday eve- ing program of the Book Fair, she revealed the personalities of the authors in a lively manner. A native of England, she reported before her talk that she had an interesting experience just before she came to Ottawa. A radio ham friend had called her and re ported that he had contacted a friend of hers in her own country like the old Four-0'Clock to me. They bloom at dusk and smell wonderful." From Portland, Maine: "We call it Jasmine Tobacco out here." Colorado Springs: She's undoubtedly looking for Angel's Trumpets." Kalamazoo, Mich.: "It's Nico- tiana, of course. This flower re- seeds and, unlike many annuals, comes back true to its parent." La Crosse, Wis.: "We call them Evening Stars in Wisconsin." Marion, Ohio.: "The name is Shoo Fly Plant." Frank Forks, N. D.: "Tell the lady to write to any nursery and ask for 'Evening Scented Stock'." Chicago: "I wish Harriett vould come and get mine.

Louisville, Ky.: "I'm sure it's the Moonflower she wants." After proper connections she talked to the friend, whom she heard quite clearly. Ottawa gardners are reporting plants that are blooming in spite of the inclement weather. Dr Josaphyne Davis picked a large pink rose from one of her bushes Tuesday. Mrs. Isabclle Bronleewe reported that she had a forsythi with some blossoms near the base of the plant. It is "way off" as forsythia is a spring blooming shrub.
