High School Students Read
Better Literature Than
High school students, on the average,
xead better literature than their eld
ers, according to Miss Lelia Willis of
the Columbia Public Library. This is
rot because of a natural desire to be
familiar with the product of acknowl
edged genius; rather, it is that most of
them are enrolled in English courses
and English teachers hate a habit of re
quiring conclude proof that assign
menu hae been read.
The lists from which books for col
lateral work, may be chosen are poted
in the hbrarr. A certain amount of
credit is gien for each report and
some unusually long books, among
which is ""Datid Copperfield," count
more than others.
-When ther bring back books of
thi tIe," said Miss Willis. "I ask
the) liked them. A good man) times
they answer, I did after I got into the

finite a following, among high school
t,upiR "If I had a dozen copies of
'Huckleberr) Finn' and Tom Sawyer
1 beliete they would all be out at
once," she said.
For the children, the cards for the
rjedtime stories of Thornton W.
Ilureess and Albert Bigelow Paine
"Hollow Tree Stories" are stamped
iftenrst. Doy Scout books, of which
the series is almost infinite, are for the
slder boys. There is a chance here to
direct the adolescent taste. If a boy
aks for "The Life of Jesse James" she
suggests a better book.
Young women and older ones do not
read the same author. With the latter
it is Ii;ht fiction, purged of all that is
unpleasant: Peter B. K)ne and Ellen
Cla-gow. The former are more inter-e.-4cd
in those that are arousing com
ment, "If Winter Comes" still has as
many calls as last year. "So many
women are disappointed in 'This Free
dom, aid the librarian. "They hae
been led to eipect so much that it fails
In sati-f). They find it morbid, too."
Dickens, Thacker) and George Eliot,
as representatie of standard novelists,
are little read.
Men do not use the library to the ex I
lent that women do; the books that
they read are different. Tratel au-1
peals to them, sod 0. Henry is a leader
One tery old borrower of books pre
fers history to all other literature. He
is particular about hating each volume
wrapped to take with bim and he
brings it back the same way. Another
man's favorites are southern stories
such as those by Thomas Dixon and
Crus Townsend Brad). One high'
school freshman reads toraciousl), in
discriminate)) and rapidly, at the rate
of one story a night.
Older persons either are slower or
come to the library les frequent!).
The newen books usually are kept a
week, being pa-sed during this time
among a small circle of friends. A
waiting list is kept for tboe most in
Monday is the busiest day. MUs
Willis thinks it is because many stu
dents do their collateral reading over
the week-end. There were 1-12 calls at
the Library last Monda).
