Summary:
A comparison of the speed and accuracy with which Ionic linotype and American typewritten samples were read by nearly equivalent groups of college students was made by means of tenminute reading tests on both 10 pt. and 7 pt. sizes.

The results show that the linotyped samples were read a little faster than the typewritten on 7 pt. material, but the reverse was true for the 10 pt. material. The statistical reliability of these tendencies was very small, indicating that the legibility of the two fonts is approximately the same. The reader is cautioned against generalizing too liberally from these results to other classes of students, other materials, and for longer periods of time.
