S. Secret Service for an explanation. Back came a letter from U. E. Baughman, chief of the service, who explained: “The small design in front of the serial number indicates it is a ‘Star’ note. Every one-hundred- millionth note is a ‘Star’ note. They are used to replace notes that are found to be defecti'v:.” Now David has a problem: Should he retain the on e-in,-0.-7 hun dred-million bill or live it up a dollar’s worth ?

Based on five objectives, remed ial reading can take a student by the hand and raise him to a higher- plane of achievement merely by improving, and in some cases teaching, reading habits. These five objectives are: im-. provernent of reading comprehen sion, vocabulary development, in creasing rate of comprehension, ex periences of reading in technical fields and becoming more familiar with supplementary aids which might help make difficult reading more understandable. Remedial reading is not a re quired course for incoming fresh men, but it is a direct result of them. A battery of aptitude and achievement tests are administered to new members of the Basic Div ision each spring and fall. One AFL-CIO Prexy Rejects Soviet Bid NEW YORK, —OP)— AFL-CIO President George Mcany rejected a Russian proposal for an exchange of trade union delegations with the United States. “No believer in the basic prin ciples of free trade unionism could today conceivably desecrate these principles by undertaking to visit a country whose tyrannical leader ship has for the 40 years of its ex istence been the avowed and un compromising- enemy of all human rights,” Meany said. The Russian proposal, part of a broad program of expanded cul tural exchanges, was presented in Washington Monday by Soviet Ambassador- Georgi N. Zarubin. Meany answered it without wait ing- for formal receipt of the bid from the State Department. of these tests is reading.. It tests the Aggie’s comprehension, vocab ulary and reading rate. If a student is low in one of these categories, the Basic Div ision sends him a letter telling him, in effect, that he is urged to reg ister for Remedial Reading so that he will have every opportunity to insure his scholastic success. It is hot mandatory. In the classroom, the student learns a basic method for reading college textbooks. He practices controlled reading with a machine that projects print on a screen. This develops skills important in surveying, skimming, scanning, re viewing and research type reading. Reading- accelerators are used to guide reading of regular printed matter at predetermined rates. Students are given a visual ex amination for acuity, lateral and vertical balance and depth percep tion at distance and for reading. Self tests are given in such sub jects -as chemistry, math, social studies, vocabulary and foreign languages. Reading is conducted for such purposes as getting the main ideas, understanding prin ciples, organization of ideas and solving a problem. Special emphasis is spent on teaching students how to spend The Batlnlion College Station (Brazos County), Texas 'f h* vr.'Vd;;y,.Octo.bfir 31, 1957.
