Future Business Leaders of America
The Future Business Leaders of
America comprises a group of students
business education. The
program this year included demonstra-
electric mimeograph and
tions of the
comptometer. A trip to the business
schools of Alton and St. Louis was
taken to acquaint students with the
educational facilities in the area. Talks
on good grooming and business psy-
chology were given at two of the meet-
ings. The project for the year was
the purchase of a record player for the
business education classes. A candy
sale was held to make money for this
project. Miss Margaret Tibbetts is
faculty adviser of this organization.
Several of the F.B.L.A. members are
shown operating the mimeograph machine.
