The Genius Behind
By Althea Bailey
Did you ever wonder where
Genia’s Jumbles come from?
Well, this article is set up to tell
you everything about Genia’s
Jumbles you wanted to know but
were afraid to ask.
First, Genia’s Jumbles are
done by Eugenia Parker, a senior
here at WSSU. Miss Parker is a
Business Education major
currently doing her student
teaching at East Forsyth High
School. Her sign is Aquarius. She
is an active member of Kappa
Kittens, Dorm Counselor, News
Argus Staff - Business Manager
and Reporter, and Who’s Who
Among America Colleges and
She has been doing the Jumbles
for three semesters. When asked
how she got started, Miss Parker
said, “I had joined the staff and
was not an experienced reporter
and I thought it (Genia’s
Jumbles) would add to the
entertainment section of the
paper”. How did she come up
with the idea? “Well, I did word
puzzles and found them difficult
at times,” she said. “By doing
my own, it helped me to do others
As for how she does it, and how
she likes her work, she said, “I
receive enjoyment watching
students working them and
sometimes getting frustrated.”
Frustration for the student yes,
but sometimes it takes Miss
Parker as long as two (2) hours to
construct her Jumbles. Her ideas
for the jumbles depend on the
happenings around campus. That
is the hardest thing she finds in
doing her Jumbles, she said.
Miss Parker says her Jumbles
have enriched her awareness of
clubs and functions around

Continue To Broaden Your Vocabulary
Part 2 from
CONTINUE TO BROADEN
The person with a good grasp of
words is usually a good reader
and a good student. Words are the
basis of human communication
and enable people to convey their
thoughts and emotions to each
This is why the first word ut
tered by a child is proof positive
that this little being has the
ability to communicate as a
Vocabulary should grow as you
mature. At every grade level,
and stage of life, it is necessary to
increase the number and
understanding of words.
Get to know their structure,
that they are composed of roots,
prefixes and suffixes, each of
which has its own definition.
Knowing the origin of words
helps in uderstanding new ones.
Most English words derive from
Latin or Greek. This is why some
knowledge of these languages is
helpful. If you know the
derivation of a word’s parts then
you will be able to analyze its
Always have a dictionary nearby
whether you are reading for
pleasure or for work. When you
are reading textbooks or
technical books, familiarize
yourself with the glossary that is
somethimes printed in the back
to define special words. Use it
Maintain a list of new words you
see or hear. Be on the lookout for
ones you don’t know. Jot them
down, look them up, and then
make a point of using them in
writing or speaking at least twice
as soon as you can.
At the end of a month- review
your list and see if you remember
their meanings and how to use
Adapt your speed so you
understand the material
A good reader must learn to
balance speed with accuracy.
Don’t expect to read everything
at the same rate. Like a well-
tuned car, your eyes must adapt
to the terrain. Above all, you
must understand and remember
what you are reading.
Read with a purpose, be aware of
what you are reading and why.
Your speed should be adjusted to
the type of material. Don’t expect
to whiz through a chapter of
biology at the same rate as a
chapter ot a novel.
Scanning material first can be
help^ in nearly all types of
reading. Get in the habit of
surveying headlines, chapter
headings and subheads first.
Look for the main ideas. Next you
will want to know the important
details that support them.
Read carefully the first and
last paragraphs which should
state the most important facts
and conclusions. You should read
the straight material in between
at a faster rate that allows you to
understand the matter in as
much depth as you want. Just
remember to keep your eyes
If you are reading for enjoyment
you can skim more easily over
the lines, paragraphs and pages.
It is not important that you take
in ever word or sentence in depth.
As in most writing, each
paragraph usually has one main
idea supported by details in
which you may or may not be
interested. Try to span as many
words as possible with a
continuous rhythm of eye
movements or fixations.
When you read a newspaper or
magazine, or non-fiction, you
want to grasp the highlights and
some details. This kind of
reading is for general
information. It differs from your
leisure reading because the
material is more serious, not as
light or as easy to comprehend as
fiction, for example.
But it still might not be
necessary to take in every word
or every sentence completely.
When reading a text first survey
the entire book. Look over the
table of contents, chapter
headlines and subheads. Get an
overview of the author’s
objectives by reading the
introduction and preface.
Studying requires close reading
because you will ' need to
remember more of the details to
support the main ideas.
Read each chapter for the
important concepts and as many
details as • necessary to
comprehend the material.
Underline major points and make
margin notes to highlight your
After you have finished
reading, question yourself,
review the summary if there is
one, and then look back to see if
you have understood the
Graphic material can help
reading comprehension. Do not
overlook the importance of
tables, maps, graphs, drawings
and photographs which are
included to reinforce your
understanding of the text.
