Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association (Time your reading of this column and compare your speed with that indicated at the end. The expected speed assumes a daily five per cent improvement. Different kinds of reading requue a different pace. Let’s say you’re given an assignment tonight in the appreciation of two poems by Robert Frost. Will you pre-read it. write down searching questions, skip and skim your way through it? Certainly not. Frost is meanf to be savored for his style, his imagery, his choice of words. Furthermore. Frost is meant to be enjoyed; he wrote to delight you, to move your heart, not to give you facts. The same would be true with Dickens. His personal purpose in writing his classic novels may have been sociological, but what a mistake to dash through his books as you might a reference work in sociology. The simply peerless character delineations, the matchless descriptive passages all would be lost. You would miss the very heart and genius of the man. No, don’t zigzag through Frost ar Dickens. That technique has a place, but not here. But now your English literature assignment is finished and you can curl up with that mystery novel your friend loaned you. Your purpose now is altogether different; you’re not looking for self-enrichment, you just want to relax. You know you can gloss over the author’! prose without insulting a great master. Just the clues and the story is all you want and you’re eager to see how the book ends. So speed makes sense, but don’t skip and skim to the extent that you miss all the clues and spoil the fun. After breakfast tomorrow you pick up the paper. All you want is information. What’s happened around the world, in your home town, at last night’s sporting event? This you can do in about 15 minutes because your purpose called for top speed. Instant information instantly. Now your father reads the newspaper, but his purpose is different from yours in many ways. He will read for information AND to evaluate. He’ll read critical, opinionative writing alertly; he’ll be on the lookout for poor reasoning, for invalid premises when he reads political com ment. \rou read that a statesman gave a speech about this or that; your father will want to know’ why the statesman took that position, why the change in attitude, what he is really after. Your father will analyze that talk, bring his whole reading background to judge the content. Your father will get a lot more out of each development because he wants more, time. We’ve covered the four reasons for reading: 1. For information, and here you read at top speed, making use of all the steps. 2. For relaxation, and here you read fast but not so fast as for information. 3. For self-enrichment, and here you read more slowly because you don’t want to miss any of a classic’s beauty. 4. For critical evaluation, and here you are not a passive observer, but an alert and questioning judge and jury. This is your slowest pace, but it should not be a slow pace after putting these columns into practice. (You should have completed this reading in 61 seconds.) TOKYO (f) — Edwin O.
