BY WILLIAM F. BUCKLEY, JR. Last Word in Power Reader's Digest inaugurated its feature on word power 50 years ago, the same year that scientists came through with the ne plus ultra in power: the atom bomb. Neither Peter Funk, the editor of "It Pays to Enrich Your Word Power," nor his father, Wilfred, who began the feature, ever included that term. Ah, but its meaning is exactly right to describe the atom bomb: the last word in power. Ne plus ultra, further than which you can't go. Now if you come to know such a term—or an unusual word—you feel a certain power, but alsó a satisfaction denied to others. The editors of "It Pays to Enrich Your Word Power" don't speciíy that the payment of a resource-ful vocabulary is only in commercial mint. Payment is in many tenders. Rewards in this case are eternal. The musician who strikes a C augmented nth chord with a raised ninth is doing something musically unusual, but its aim is absolutely conventional: to convey delight to the listener. So the unusual word—if it fits exactly the meaning you want, if it is comfortably in rhythm with what comes before and after—repays the thought you gave to learning it by giving you pleasure, and by pleasing the person who hears it. Not long ago someone wrote that Reader's Digest was more useful and more informative during the decades of Soviet communism than most of the highbrow opinion journals bound together. To be truly free, and truly to appreciate its freedom, a society must be literate. And so Reader's Digest continues to be gloriously useful in promoting knowledge of the words that adorn our language. May it be equally useful for the next 50 years.
