Students in high schools and colleges are displaying an increasing interest in the subject of reading. Whenever teachers hold conferences for their students a considerable proportion of the cases who seek help are college freshman, who feel, after conference with their advisers, that their own scholarship is impaired by reading disability.

The increasing interest in reading which is manifested by educators, students, and laymen alike, was stated as one of the desirable trends in the field of reading by the Cociiitteo on Reading of the National Society for the Study of Education in its report.

Evidence of interest in reading may be found in magazines and pamphlets. Popular articles dealing with this subject are appearing with great frequency in non-professional magazines.
