Seale. 25 APRIL, 1936 * * * BETTER READ! G While there has been a tremendous increase in the output of " literary trash" in recent years, it is probably true that the reading taste of the public has improved in certain re­spects, The banal insipid stories that once formed the " light reading" of the country have been largely sup­planted by a class of writings that make some pretension 0 f literary form; they at least have a plot and structure and they are framed in English that conforms to the accepted rules. There are now so many writers turning out work that even the cheap­est magazines and newspapers can insi t on style and polish in what they buy, and readers whose demands are by no means exacting have be­come accustomed to writing that is a for cry from the illiterate nonsense that flourished not so long ago. Unfortunately, this literary im­provement has not been accompanied by an improvement in subject mat­ter. Popular reading material, in fact, has probably become worse, morally; it has deteriorated into a nauseating repitition of a few topicEl, above which the ordinary writer seems un­able to rise, and the effect of which is readily apparent. There are many readers who will quickly defend authors whose writings are in poor taste, if not clearly in­decent, on the score that these writ­ers are " modern.' To these people such a b:> ok is brilliant, smart and sophisti­cated, and therefore it must be read. They defend their reading habits by claiming that these authors face facts and describe life just as it is, and that they suffer no injury themselves from this type of literature. To admit that there are many unpleasant types of people in the world does not imply that we should admit them into our THE BLUE BONNET minds, there to parade their indecen­cies, to defend with clever tongue their ribaldries, to mock with leering countenance all that we hold sacred. The United States Government spends large amounts of money to provide good reading matter for the men in the Army and Navy and we think the net results justify this in­vestment. We regret however the real evil caused by reading cheap and trashy magazines of many types. One cannot help but be sullied at least in mind from long hours of reading and poring over magazines and pictures of the " true," " saucy," " breezy," " sexy," " arty" type. When you have the time to read, spend it entertain­ingly and profitably. You will en­counter enough that is low and un­pleasant in life without looking for it. When the choice is your own, choose that which will encourage and help you to lead a nobler and better life. LIBRARY HOURS 12: 30 to 1: 00 Whe. n.. a. t. sea. RAISE YOUR RIGHT HAND When a person is sworn as a wit­ness before a courtmartial, if it so happens that he is wearing gloves, the one on the right hand, which he holds up, must be removed before the administration of the oath. This is a time honored custom of the Ser­vice which has been handed down to us through the years. The practice of removing the right glove comes from the fact that in the old days persons who had violated the laws and had been convicted were branded in the palm of the right hand. Witnesses wearing gloves were re quired to remove the one from the right hand in order that it might be determined whether they were quali­fied to testify. .' 1 • NEW SHIPS Eight new light cruisers, two new aircraft carriers, The Enterprise and Yorktown, and fifty new submarines and destroyers will join the the United States Fleet within the next twenty months. Ten of the < Iestroyers will be of the 1500 ton class. Three new cruisers, the Quincy, Vincinnes and Wichita will also be commissioned during this period.
