java read vs readline

First let me admit that I barely know java enough to be dangerous.  

I'd like to modify the code below (in the function run) so that when it receives a message, it prints it to the console, but I don't want it to print a CR LF.

I get some compiler warnings about depreciated functions, so fee free to update the code where it makes sense to do so:

An added bonus would be to make the program exit gracefully if the user hits ctrl-c
import java.io.*;
import java.net.*;
import java.security.*;
