its because S.E. Hinton is a girl and back then boys were only reading books by boys and girls were only reading books by girls and that's kind of how it is still today, and so she used S.E. Hinton so it didnt sound like a girl name and boys would read her book as much as girls would.

AutoText allows to get Word to type in longer pieces of text when you have only type in a few letters. For example, it is possible to set AutoText for your name, where all you would have to do would be to type the initials of your name and Word will then put in your full name. If you type your full name, select it and press Alt F3, a dialog box will come up asking for a name for your Autotext. You could then type your initials and click OK. Then on the page, you could type your initials and press F3 and your initials will be replaced by your full name. In more standard usage, someone can type in an abbreviation or an acronym and have Word put in the full version automatically. Some pieces of AutoText are built in and you can choose from lists for things like the start of end of a letter, so that it might put in "Sincerely Yours" at the end
