iIbC Helps Students With Dyslexia
by Wendy Polomis
Brevard College has a learning
disability program for students
needing special attention. The
college is not wishing to expand
this program, but they do wish to
improve the program.
The most common type of lear
ning disability here on campus is
dyslexia. Dyslexia is the disabili
ty to read correctly. Quite
capable of learning, dyslexias
need help understanding the
material first. Albert Einstein
had dyslexia, but with help he
learned very well.
All over the country there are
experiments being done for peo
ple with dyslexia. In California
teachers tried using the word pro
cessor to help students. At
Brevard College, the dyslexias
invert their letters and the new
word speller program helps
students to spell correctly.
Besides the word speller, other
help is available in tutors, people
to check notes and books that
have been recorded for the people
Although the learning disabili
ty program is not highly publiciz
ed, it is in existence at Brevard
College and is a very important

Three new courses are being of
fered at Brevard College this fall,
according to Dean Wray. These
courses are: Theater 105 -
Technical Theater: Sound,

Economics, and Computer
Science 202 - Data Structures.
For students interested in lear
ning how to operate sound equip-
, ttient, Theater 105 (Technical
Theatre: Sound) is being offered.
There is a need on campus for
people who are experienced with
setting up sound equipment for
plays, dances, storm cellar, con
certs and activities in Dunham
Auditorium. This course fills that
need. The course is also being in
troduced to help students serve
the community, and let them gain
experience in this field if it is
their desired career. Mr. Joe
Jackson is the instructor.
Economics 200 (Introduction to
Economics) is available to
liberal arts majors. This course^
which is taught by Mr. Fisher, in
volves a rapid review of
Computer Science 202 (Data
Structures) has been added to
supplement the computer science
sequences. CSC 200 helps make
the computer science program
“what a program of studies
should be,” says Dean Wray.
This new course, taught by Dr.
Wetmore, is a recommended ele
ment in the CSC sequence.

Pops Concert And Choir
Set For Sunday, Sept. 29
by Teresa Shaw
The Collegiate Singers and the
Concert Band are presenting a
pops concert on Sunday,
September 29th, at 3 p.m. on the
lawn in front of Dunham
Auditorium. The Collegiate
Singers under the direction of
Hugh Floyd will perform
“Georgia on My Mind,” a medley
of songs from “South Pacific,”
“Everybody Rejoice,’ ’and
others. The Concert Band under
the direction of Steve Kelly plans
to play selections from “A Chorus
Line,” “Stars and Stripes
Forever,” “The Typewriter” and
Steve Kelly got the idea to have
the pops concert because of
similar ones done at the Brevard
Music Center. Those concerts
had an informal setting and have
been very successful. With less
than a month to prepare their
songs, both groyps are working
very hard. Mr. Kelly would like to
extend an invitation to the public
and the student body to pack a
lunch, arrive early, and enjoy the
music. This is a Life and Culture
event, and in case of rain will be
moved inside of Dunham.
