A recent SUI% vey taken of more than 15,000 corporation officers and executives, shows that 55 per cent of them read more than ten books a year, and 19 per cent more than 25 books a year. It has been said that reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life. , . I remember reading one time that upon the voyage of llf o there are a few books of which we may hope to make lite-long companions; and, as in other relations of life, it behooves us, if wo hope to avoid calamity on our voyage, to chooso our mates with discretion. Recently my frfend Emily McGuire returned from a visit to Washington, D. C. As we talked about the many special things there are to see in our nation's capital we discussed one, which to each of us was.most impressive. That is tn f Library of Congress and the Library for the blind. I recalled these statistics. If you and two friends read three books apiece per day for 333 years, you wouldn't get through the current science collection at the Library of Congress. And that is, of course, only one of the many divisions The Library at a recent count," inventories 31,692,679 items, books, pamphlets, maps, pictures, etc. In my visit to the division for the blind I was impressed with the blind people who were working in this division and as my friend was the head of this office I got to meet' them and spent most of a day with them. They were typing, filing, doing all the usual routine of an office and one could easily forget that they were not sighted. Fact is that when I was leaving I waved to them as I said goodbye and not until I was out in the street did it occur to me that they could not see me wave. James Russell Lowell once said, "Have you ever rightly considered what the mere ability to read means? That it is the key which admits us to the whole world of thought and fancy and imagination? To the company of saint and sage, of the wisest and the wittiest at their wisest and wittiest moment? That it enable us to see with the keenest eyes, hear with the finest ears, and listen to the sweetest voices of all time? More than that, it annihilates time and space for us. One of the finest heritages we can 'bestow upon our children is the desire and love of good reading. I hope all children everywhere have the privilege to know, their library and fKeir r libra>ian. I hope we teach them library manners and ttach them to treat a book as kindly as a friend. I recall the posters that were in evidence in bur library when I was a little girl, they were drawings of a naughty creature called a goop, who soiled the pages of books and tore them, and of course none of us would want to be called a goop. I would have many many lonely moments if I did not enjoy reading as I do and so I wish for everyone the pleasure and the rich reward that comes to the thoughtful reader. A salesman for a junior encyclopedia, his foot in the doorway, was fast-talking the young mother of a five-year-old boy and refusing to take no for an answer. "This set of books will answer each and every question your child will ever ask," he said glibly, patting the boy on the head. "You'll never be at a loss for an answer with these. "Go ahead, sonny," he said, opening one of the books, "ask me a question, any question, and I'll show your mother how easy it is to answer by looking in the book." The little fellow thought for a few seconds, then asked, "What kind of a car does God drive?" Without a word the salesman folded his briefcase and faded down the street." Now is a good time to begin the selection of books as gifts for Christmas giving. Books are always welcome gifts. While you ere choosing it would be a nice gesture to make a gift of a book or books to your library. This makes a gift that affords pleasure to many. Dreams, books, are each a world; and books we know, are a substantial world, both pure and good; round these, with tendrils strong as flesh and blood, our pastime and our happiness will grow. William Wordsworth. A beautiful idea for Christmas giving... and so practical, too! The petite Princess phone has a lighted dial that glows softly in the darkness, brightens for easy dialing. And she'll like the new heavier non-skid base. Order now—just call the telephone business office, or ask any telephone employee.
