Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'Reads the front page, turns to the back, looks at the cartoon intently as if trying to understand it; then opens it and says, "What's all this?" "Have I got to read it all?" He is told it is just as he likes, so he reads about two paragraphs and then gives it up. "I quite agree with it, it's wrong to lock all these people up like that. They're useful to us I suppose."'
