In 1920 the population of the United States numbered 106,021,537. Of this number, the United States Department of Commerce figured out that 5,000,000 were functionally illiterate and 10,000,000 were near-illiterate. The editors of Time were not alarmed by this fact at all - so they placed this announcement on page 18.
