Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'"The Syonan Times" says very naively that the essay competition on Nipponese culture was very disappointing. There were only 45 entries: no first and second prizes will be awarded. The population of Syonan don't seem to have realised that Nipponese culture is the finest in the world, especially in science and engineering. This is proved by the fact that her inventions have been adopted all over the world.'
