What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Mrs. Dora Reese spoke on the many attacks on education today that are destructive rather than constructive. She introduced the main speaker, Dr. A. Sterl Artley, professor of education and director of child study clinic from the University of Missouri. In his talk entitled \What is a Good Reading Program?\ Dr. Artley began by stating that the purpose for having reading conferences is not that teachers are failures in the teaching of reading but rather that they want to do a better job in this field. Four Steps in the Reading Instruction Procedure: Dr. Artley outlined four steps in the basic reading procedure. First, he said, there must be a definite goal in the mind of every teacher at every level in the understanding, skills and ability of the students. These goals vary ac- cording to the level and ability of the students. Second, the teacher must have a systematic teaching method; she must follow her guide book paying special attention to skill development, since reading is a skill. \There is little place (Continued on Page 4) COLLEGE HONORED TO HEAR ADELA GEBR, EUROPEAN ARTIST Charm, Beauty, and Versatility Please Audience Adela Gebr, coloratura soprano, ap- peared July 14, in an evening concert for students in the Student Union lounge where she sang classical numbers in five languages, some of which have been acclaimed the most beautiful ever composed.
