String fileName = "hockey pool.txt" ;
String line;
try

BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(
new FileReader( fileName ) );
line = in.readLine();
while ( line != null ) // continue until end of file

here's a simple way
(if there's a lot of text, put the textarea into a JScrollPane
and give the scrollPans a preferredSize)
