Slush piling could hamper new Talent to those of you who Are writing a Book or pondering a literary tour de Force the phrase a slush pile represents the difference Between sudden Fame and hiding the completed manuscript in an attic. Slush pile is the limbo to which All unsolicited manuscripts Are consigned. In the offices of most publishers there is a desk piled High with unpublished books written by retired doctors schoolteachers police officers and Young aspirants. They Are read in the main by Bright Young ladies who aspire to become editors. A dismal business. The breaking in of an unknown author is Akin to busting out of sing sing by scratching the Walls with fingernails. Doubleday for example examines 19,000 unsolicited manuscripts a year and finds four worthy of publication. Simon amp schuster will not read such manuscripts. Bill Henderson writing in the new York times Book review quotes Simon amp schuster As stating a in a few years every publisher will be refusing unsolicited material As we Jim Landis of William Morrow says a the excuse i d like to hear is that they won t read the stuff because Reading it is so goddamn first hot to give you the now Hormel tells you what we have in our wieners. You can see for yourself what our hot dogs Are made of right on this new Label. Read How much Good beef and pork they contain. And no Cereal or other fillers. That Means Hormel wieners give you the same High Quality Complete protein As any other Good meat you buy. As Well As what out it you set of them Hormel knows you re concerned about the nutrition in foods you serve to your family. That Why months ago we were first to list nutritional information about our wieners right up front on our Label. We think you want the facts. We know you deserve the facts. Hormel puts the facts up front. Nut and yet almost every adult american who can write a Lucid letter has at one time or another said a boy could i write a Book a stifling new Talent is dangerous. The publishers realize this and one and All they advise neophyte authors to first find a literary agent. Doors to Young new writers Are being slammed a few turn in desperation to a a vanity publishing houses which will print a few thousand copies of any manuscript if the author pays for it in Advance. Somewhere within those slush piles Are uncut diamonds. Even when they Are uncovered agents and editors do not always recognize them. Frances Pundyck a remarkably Good literary agent read a slush pile Book and wearily called the author in to Tell her to please take it Home and forget it. It was she said pure Corn. The lady who wrote it Felt crushed. Her name was Betty Smith. The Book was a a tree grows in five Good publishers declined an outline of a the Day Lincoln was Evans Thomas then editor of Harper and Row scanned it and said a this is destined to be a runaway who to believe writing remains an Art form. The Book you love May be anathema to me and vice versa. If you were an editor and you heard that a writer named Roger Kahn was doing a nostalgic Book about a of All organizations a the Brooklyn dodgers would you put your Money in it it was called a the boys of summer and became a bestseller. Long ago i was founding editor of Gold medal books. We published original books a As opposed to reprints a in softcover. One Day out of nowhere i read a manuscript called a the brass i told my Boss Bill Lengel that i was going to publish it. He read it and shrugged. His Boss in Fawcett publications took it Home and read it. A it wont sell a he said. I asked him who the hell was editor. A you Are a he said a but i want it understood that i am opposed to this one and if you publish it ifs on your no one knew the writer. I never met him. His name was John Macdonald and he writes mysteries about a character named Travis Mcgee. I quit my Job. A the brass cupcakes sold Well or. Macdonald has since written Many More books and has 50 million copies in print the county manager said he Hopes the rate when finally set will be closer to 52via cents. A we done to know yet what More can be Cut out but with the departmental Heads on monday we will go into each budget again and see where reductions can be made a explained Holmes. He said the county schools will receive necessary funds to continue the ambitious Art music program begun this year in All county schools for the first time but added other programs May be Cut. The budgets As submitted by the various county departments Call for expenditures totalling More than $14.6 million. This compares to the current budget which totals $11,248,000. The county manager said also monday the commissioners will decide whether to continue to charge municipalities to use the county Landfill. He said several City officials want the county to let the cities use the Landfill located near Central Falls without charge maintaining they Are being double taxed. County commissioners on the other hand say if the county lets the cities use the Landfill free the county taxes will have to be increased to take care of operational costs. The Landfill opened in 1973 and fees Are charged to All municipalities and commercial haulers while individual residents can use it free. This fiscal year it has Cost around $90,000 to operate the Landfill with about $22,000 coming in from users fees and the rest from Federal Revenue sharing funds. The commissioners have already indicated they will use Revenue sharing funds also in 1974-75 to make up the difference.
