I. David Satlow

vital phase of education for life adjustment. The
uncertainties of our time intensify the need for
training in practical economics. More than ever be-
fore the adiustment of boys and girls to our economic
and business life demands a constructive attitude
toward business, a clear understanding of its func-
tions, and the ability and skill to use its goods and
services effectively. These are the outcomes sought
by the Commercial Arts Department at Defiance
The goal of the type of training provided by the
commercial courses is competence for stenographic
or secretarial positions. In Shorthand I the student
studies the basic fundamentals and symbols. The
development of basic skills of writing shorthand,
transcribing, and typewriting are continued in Short-
hand ll. The student who has passed Shorthand l
and ll is eligible to take Secretarial Practice where
he follow the procedure of a typical office. This
course does more than prepare for the high level
of stenographic proficiency. The training program is
of such a nature that it prepares the student for
initial office jobs and develops a background of
understanding that qualifies employees for promo-
tion to more responsible positions.
