Text from Pages 1 - 76 of the 1912 volume:

i 2 OUR COLLEGE HOME WE PRESENT on the opposite page a picture of the Gem City . Business College building. This building is constructed in the strongest and most durable manner of stone and red pressed brick, with terra cotta trimmings. It is one of the finest buildings in the city of Quincy, and cost, with grounds and furnishings, over $100,000. There are more than 30,000 square feet of floor space devoted to the school, with a capacity for seating over 1200 students. Four floors of the building are required to accommodate the different departments of the school. The appointments of the building are first-class and strictly modern in every particular. The rooms are lighted by means of electricity and gas, and heated by steam. Each study room is provided with a lavatory and flowing water, and sanitary conveniences are located on each, floor. An electric elevator is in use. The stairways leading to the different floors are broad and easy. Everything possible has been done for the safety, convenience, comfort, and health of our students. The building is supplied with private telephones, speaking tubes, and an electric clock which automatically calls and dismisses the classes according to a regular program. The light and ventilation are perfect, the ceilings of the rooms are high, and an abundance of light is supplied from all sides. The building is an ideal place for students to work in order to accomplish the best results. Teachers, students, and visitors are delighted with it. The fifth floor of the building is devoted to the Introductory Book- keeping department, with a number of class rooms and examination rooms. Students taking the Business or Combination course begin their ' work in this department. The large auditorium and lecture room occupies the south half of the fourth floor. Classes from the various study rooms assemble in the lecture room every period of the day, according to a regular program. The large study room of the Advanced Bookkeeping depart- ment occupies the north end of this floor. Students are promoted from the Introductory Bookkeeping department to this room after they have made the proper advancement in their studies. The Normal Penmanship department occupies a commodious room centrally located at the east on this floor. The Actual Business and Banking department occupies the north half of the third floor. This room is furnished in regular counting house style, and contains, in addition to desks for two hundred retail merchants, four large banks, two wholesale houses, and numerous other offices for different lines of business. This interesting work is much appreciated by our students. In the Actual Business department the student manages his own establishment, buys and sells merchandise and keeps a regular set of books covering his various transactions. When the student has completed this department he is competent to enter a business office in any clerical capacity, and every year the college places a large number of young people in excellent positions, as cashiers, bookkeepers, and managers. The Shorthand and Typewriting department occupies one-half of the second and one-half of the third floor. The study room, recitation room, dictation room, and typewriting room for the introductory work of this department are located at the south on the third floor, while the corresponding rooms for the advanced department are located at the south on the second floor. The general offices of the college and President Musselman ' s private office, are located near the stairway and elevator entrance on the second floor, while the salesroom and storerooms for stationery supplies occupy the remainder of this floor. With this spacious building and its elegant furnishings we are enabled to classify the work more systematically than can be done in smaller schools. To more clearly illustrate: In many schools the bookkeeping department occupies but one room, where all the students are instructed without regard to their advancement or individual needs; whereas in the G. C. B. C. the bookkeeping work is arranged in sections or departments — the introductory work, the advanced work, the actual business work, and the banking. The students are thus carefully classified, each department occupying a separate room or a different floor of the building, and being presided over by a principal and able assistants who are specialists in the work of that section. Much of the instruction in the bookkeeping department is individual, each student receiving the particular attention he requires to enable him to make the most rapid progress in his work. Our courses of study are thorough and comprehensive, including just those branches which are most necessary to prepare one for the duties of a successful business or stenographic career. They are the result of over forty years of improvement. There are three separate and distinct courses of intsruction given in the Gem City Business College; viz., the Business Course, the Shorthand and Typewriting Course, and the Normal Penmanship Course. These different courses, with the work to be performed in them by the students in order to graduate, are fully explained under their respective titles further along in this catalog. The faculty is composed of experienced teachers and practical educators, — each being especially qualified for the department over which he presides, — who devote their entire time to the school and to the interests of our students. It is with a feeling of just pride as well as thanks to the public for their liberal patronage that, on issuing this, our forty-first annual catalog, we can announce the year just passed as one of the most successful in the history of the college. The enrollment has reached nearly 1400 students, and includes representatives from a majority of the states of the Union, and some from foreign countries.

LANE Cashier and Bookkeeper The Four Musselmans and Their Great Business College REPRINTED FROM THE QUINCY OPTIC MORE and more is the world disposed to do homage to man ' s creative faculties — to his powers to create or to perpetuate. There is a distinct fascination in writing about the creation, the strengthening, the broadening, of things of great useful- ness. Especially does this intense interest apply to writing about the creating or perpetuation and development of great things in the educational sphere, things having to do with the right fitting of youth, things having good and useful influ- ence on thousands and thousands of human lives. Such a great and educational cre- ation for instance, as the Gem City Business College, of Quincy, Illinois. It is not easy for the present gen- eration in Quincy to realize that this magnificent seat of learning, so much admired and respected by all, has been built up in the short space of two score years, and none but our oldest citizens can remember when there was not a Gem City Business College. Prof. D. L. Musselman, the Founder As the sculptor makes from the clay the marvelous figure; as the painter makes from his colors the wonderful picture; as the composer creates the immortal melody, so Pro- fessor Musselman created the Gem City Business College. His clear, true vision saw the need of such an institution. His remarkable abilities, his splendid qualities, his knowledge of youth and its needs, his industry and application, enabled him to supply that need. He began with three students forty-one years ago. Today the total enrollment nears the fifteen hundred mark. Every year adds to the enrollment, because every year adds to the prestige and influence of the institution. Perpetuated by the Founder ' s Three Worthy Sons Fortunately for the continuation of his great College, its steady development, its broadening of influences. Professor Musselman had three worthy sons of his own to train. Sons not only worthy of their D. L. MUSSELMAN Sr. Founder D. L. MUSSELMAN President father in point of character, but sons whose ambition was to take up and continue the great work he so well founded. If the great educator can look down and behold the carefulness, the capacity, the splendid interest and enthusiasm with which his loyal and talented sons are carrying on his magnificent College, he must indeed feel that his care in training these sons has borne excellent fruit. D. L. Musselman, the Eldest Son D. L. Musselman, the eldest son, named after his father, took his pre- paratory education in the Quincy High School, Shattuck Military School in Fairbault, Minn., all the courses in the Gem City Business College and also studied law under Judge Mc- Crory. Upon the completion of his courses in the Gem City Business College, he taught in the college for two years. In 1900 he became Secre- tary and Treasurer of the College, and in 1906 he became General Manager, which position he held until 1910, since which time he has been Presi- dent and Treasurer of the institution. Among the other activities of this fine young man, he is vice president of the Quincy Chamber of Commerce, a director of the Quincy National Bank, a director of the Quincy Boule- vard and Park Association, a director of the Y. M. C. A. and a trustee of the Methodist Church. Among the important positions he has held with notable credit, was the presidency of the National Commercial Teachers ' Association, which held its convention in Pittsburg in 1907. The ability and sound judgment with which Mr. Musselman is filling the responsible position of President of the College, have won the highest commendation everywhere. V. G. Musselman, the Second Son The second son. V. G. Musselman, attended the Quincy High School, after which he matriculated at the University of Illinois, taking the liberal arts course, following which he took the courses in the Gem City Business College. While at college he was Sergeant Major of the University Regiment. V. G. MUSSELMAN Secretary T. E. MUSSELMAN Instructor V. G. has inherited his talented father ' s artistic temperment. His skill with pencil and brush was recognized even while at college. He was chosen on the editorial staff of the college paper, " The Illini, " as chief illustrator, and he was also art editor for the college year book, the " Illio. " His poster and cartoon work is of exceptional excellence. For several years he acted as assistant principal of the Actual Business department. He became Office Manager and Secretary of the College, upon the election of his brother to the Presidency. He is Secretary of the Board of Trustees of Blessing Hospital and Secretary of the Civic Improvement League. In every position held by this splendid young man he has manifested the same constant zeal, admirable judgment, and business application, while he possesses the true Mussel- man temperment, an amiable and agreeable personality. T. E. Musselman, the Third Son - The youngest son, Thomas Edgar Musselman, is a graduate of the Shattuck Military School, and the degree Bachelor of Arts was conferred on him by the University of Illinois on his graduating from that school in June, 1910, following which he took a thorough course in the Gem City Business College. He i now an instructor in the Actual Busi- ness department. Besides being a very tine teacher of bookkeeping and the other studies which go with it, Mr. Musselman is considered an authority on birds, and is a member of the American Ornithological Society. He possesses the admirable qualities so characteristic of the family, being industrious, energetic, laudably ambitious, and has a most congenial disposition. All three of the sons possess good physiques, with a well developed taste for athletics, in which each has won distinction. T. E. won the tennis championship of Illinois University for the years of 1908-1909 and 1909-1910 and in 1910 he represented the University of Illinois in the Intercollegiate Conference meet held in Chicago and was runner-up in the tennis doubles. The last year at the University he was president of the Educational Club. In 1908 lie won the championship of the Central Illinois Tennis Tournament at Peoria, Illinois, and together with D. L. won the first prize in the doubles at the same tournament. This sketch of these young men would not be complete without referring to the perfect sympathy of their relations with each other and to the admirable coordination of their successful work for the advance- ment and enhanced prestige and influence of the great educational institution left in their capable hands. Money alone could not have built up and maintained an institution of such wide scope and so national in its character. Time, hard work, careful management, fair dealing, and a clear knowledge of conditions were necessary. All the money of a Rockefeller would not build a Gem City Business College; the work is a growth, and requires many years of patient toil and right supervision. BRIEF HISTORY OF OUR PROGRESS THE GEM CITY BUSINESS COLLEGE opened in 1870 with three students, increasing to thirty-three by the end of the first year. The attendance steadily increased in numbers and in a few years reached the creditable enrollment of five hundred students annually, and thus encouraged it was decided to push for the one thousand mark. It was at this stage of the work that we conceived the idea of the " Greatest School in America. " Why not have it in. Quincy — the beautiful, healthy town of 40,000 inhabitants, situated on the banks of the grand old Mississippi, in the midst of the finest and largest agricultural country in the world? Why not make it the Yale, the Harvard, the Ann Arbor, of commercial colleges? Would not the public approve and support it? Does not the business public require it? Does not the inefficiency of the work of the multi- tude of weak school s all over the country leave an opening, and a demand as well, for one great school that will stand pre-eminently at the head of business education in this country? To accomplish this result, we bent our best energies. The school had now reached eight hundred students in annual attendance. Newer, larger and better quarters were needed for it than could be rented in Quincy. We therefore purchased a valuable lot and erected thereon the finest commercial school building in the land, costing over $100,000. The students were delighted with the new building and its line equip- ment, and were high in their praise of the excellent business training received within its walls. Additional expert teachers were employed to meet the demands; courses of instruction were revised, and methods improved; and the fame of the Gem City Business College and the work accomplished by its students went abroad, and the patronage increased until not only was the much coveted one thousand mark reached, but passed, several years since, and the annual enrollment now reaches from 1400 to 1S00 students. It is worthy of note in this connection to state that the enrollment of students in the G. C. B. C. since its organization has reached more than the 35,000 mark, and the large daily attendance now requires a faculty and working force of nearly thirty people. The school has been successful beyond the most sanguine expecta- tions of its management, proving conclusively that there is a demand for higher and better business education in America, not only by the business interests of the country, but by the patronizing public as well. To further strengthen the school, to add to its popularity and insure its perpetuity, the G. C. B. C. was in 1893 incorporated under the laws of the State of Illinois. The incorporation certificate requires a high class curriculum and authorizes the issuing to its graduates the degree " Master of Accounts, " and " Bachelor of Accounts. " Parents and Guardians May Arrange to have Weekly Allowances Paid to their Children or Wards T F GUARDIANS desire to make weekly I allowances for their wards ' expenses, the A money may be deposited at the college bank and it w ill be paid out as directed, and a report rendered when requested. All that is necessary is to send the money direct to us with a request that so much be paid to the student each week, and our cashier will see that the request is followed. We have a regularly established bank- at the College Office. The banking hours are from eight a. m. to five p. m. on school days. This bank does a regular banking business, except that it does not loan money. The majority of our students deposit their money in this bank and draw from it as their needs require. They find it a great convenience, as it furnishes a perfectly safe place to keep their money and enables them to draw it without leaving the building, and in tmis to suit their wishes. We have correspondent banks in Chicago and St. Louis, and students desiring drafts on either of these cities may purchase them at the bank. Our bank has proved a great convenience to hundreds cf students each year, and practically all of them take advantage of its privileges. One of the officers of the bar.k is a notary public, and students requiring h ' .- services may be accommodated at any time. Several of the officers of the school are also directors in the National and State banks of this city and hence are in a position at all times to give advice to students along any banking lines they may desire. Parents and guardians wishing any further information regarding the bank should communicate with V. G. Musselman, Secretary. Students ' Bank in College Office The above is a photograph of the bank in the college office, where the students deposit their expense money to be checked out when needed g— inni— »nni-nmn »nn«— nm ' " " ' r fl s General Information j THE Fall Session begins Tuesday, Sep- tember 5, 1911, at which time new- classes in all departments will be formed. The Winter Session begins Tuesday, Jan- uary 2, 1912, when a large number of new students will enroll and new classes will be organized in all subjects. Students May Enter Any Time. The classes are so arranged that a student may begin at any time and pursue the desired studies without interruption. If one finds it inconvenient to begin at the opening of the Fall or Winter Session he may enroll at any other time with equal advantages. Many enter during the latter part of September and in October and November, and also during the spring and summer months. Courses of Study. The College offers sev- eral regular courses of study: the Business Course, the Shorthand and Typewriting Course, the Normal Penmanship Course, the Full Combination Course, and the Short Com- bination Course. Special courses may be ar- ranged if desired. The Business Course embraces bookkeep- ing, actual business practice, auditing, business management, banking, commercial arithmetic, business law, penmanship, letter writing, spell- ing; punctuation, rapid calculation, the use of the adding machine, and other special office devices. Banking is optional in this course. The Shorthand and Typewriting Course embraces shorthand, typewriting, spelling,, .let- ter writing, punctuation, business writing, manifolding, and the use of the copy press, mimeograph, planotype, and other duplicating devices. The Normal Penmanship Course embraces plain and ornamental writing, pen lettering, flourishing, blackboard work, engrossing, spec- imen making, spelling, letter writing, punctua- tion, methods of teaching, etc. The Full Combination Course embraces the subjects of arithmetic, business law, book- keeping, actual business practice, banking, business management, auditing, shorthand, typewriting, spelling, letter writing, penman- ship, punctuation, rapid calculation, office dic- tation, the use of the mimeograph, adding machine, and other modern appliances. This course embraces all the subjects of the Busi- ness Course and also all those of the Short- hand and Typewriting Course. Banking is optional in this course. The Short Combination Course consists of shorthand, typewriting, bookkeeping (11 sets), actual business practice (2 sections), letter writing, spelling, penmanship, punctuation, and office practice. This course is the same as the Full Combination Course, except that commercial law and arithmetic are omitted, and the bookkeeping and actual business work is shortened. Post Graduate Work. Many teachers and others who have taken complete or partial courses in other schools, arrange to do post- graduate and special work. The student se- lects such course or subjects as may be desired and carries them along in the regular classes. Tuition for special courses is determined by the length of time devoted to the school work. If all the branches of a regular course are completed, a diploma is issued, providing three months or more are spent in the school. Special German Course. Students who de- sire may arrange to take lessons in German. The classes are held after the regular school sessions are finished for each day. Life Scholarships. The life scholarship plan has proved a great success in our institu- tion, and to it must be given the credit for our having graduated more high-grade, suc- cessful students than any other American business college by any other plan. Life scholarships are issued for each of the regular courses described above. By life scholarship is meant a tuition certificate entitling the student to unlimited time in completing the course. One holding a life scholarship may, if desired, withdraw at any time before the course is completed and return later for the purpose of finishing the work. The holder of a life scholarship is also permitted to review the work at any time without additional cost. Many students take advantage of this privilege even after they are graduated and have been employed for a number of years. The scholar- ship is always honored by the G. C. B. C. when presented by the original purchaser, unless he has forfeited his rights and privi- leges by bad conduct. The Term Plan of Tuition. Students may if desired pay their tuition by the month or by the term. It usually costs more, however, to finish a course by this plan than by the life scholarhsip plan. Tuition Not Transferable. Life scholar- ships and tuition certificates are not transfera- ble nor redeemable, except in case of death in the early part of the course, in which case term tuition is retained, and any balance re- maining is returned to the parents. Bocks. The text books and supplies for the various courses are extra. The cost of books for each course is explained farther on. The Payment of Tuition. All tuition is payable in advance, and students should come provided with a sufficient amount to pay for the scholarship and books, and expenses for board and room for a few weeks. Money should be brought in the form of a bank draft or post office or express money order. Do nut put your money or draft in your trunk on your trip to Quincy, but carry it with you, and when you reach the college you can de- posit it in the College Bank for safety and convenience. Board and Lodging. We assist each stu- dent in getting nicely located in a good room in a private family conveniently situated near the college. A representative from the school accompanies each student and sees that he is suitably located. Board may be procured in private families, or at a boarding house. Bank for Students ' Money. A well equipt bank is maintained in the College Office for the students ' convenience. They deposit their money and bank drafts, receiving a pass book so that the money may be drawn in sums to suit their convenience. If parents or guar- dians desire, they may send money direct to us, and we will look after the payment of bills and make regular reports at stated inter- vals, if requested. St. Louis or Chicago drafts may be purchased at the College Bank when desired. No Cheap Rates. Our prices are as low as we can make them and keep the work up to the high standard for which the Gem City Business College is famous. We cannot make any club rates nor family rates, but charge each student the same price for the same service. Neither do we allow any commission to those who recommend their friends to attend our school, although we fully appre- ciate such action and reciprocate by giving the student the best instruction possible. Qualifications for Entering. An ordinary district school education is all that is required to enter this institution. If a student has not been in school for some time and feels " rusty " ami behind in his studies, we can assure him he will find others like himself in school, and that he will receive, if necessary personal in- struction at his desk until thoroughly prepared to enter classes without the least embarrass- ment. School Sessions. Morning session from 9 to 12; afternoon session from 1:30 to 4 o ' clock. The roll is regularly called twice a day. Every student is expected to be present at roll-call, and to remain in school during both the morn- ing and afternoon sessions. No student is excused from school to study at his room. It will, however, be necessary for students to study in their rooms evenings, in order to properly keep up with their classes. The building is open from 8 a. m. to 5 p. m. and teachers are in charge, so that students desir- ing to work before and after school hours may do so. Deportment and Discipline. All the stu- dents are treated as ladies and gentlemen, and are at all times expected to deport themselves accordingly and to comply with the rules of the school. Those who do not comply with our reasonable regulations are asked to with- draw from the school. Attendance and Reports. Students are re- quired to be regular and punctual in attend- ance. A complete record is kept of each student, showing his attendance, application, progress in studies, branches pursued, studies completed, and general deportment. This re- port is mailed to parents or guardians in December, April, and August, and oftener if desired, or found necessary. Co-Educational. Our school is patronized by a superior class of young people of both sexes. The young ladies pursue the same courses as the young gentlemen, and are quite as successful as accountants, clerks, stenogra- phers, etc., after completing. It is a fact worthy of notice, that the health of the young people while attending this institution is proverbially good. We do not accept negro students. Individual Instruction. Students frequently enroll in the Gem City Business College who have been out of school for some time and are hence rusty in their studies. To these students we give special attention, giving them private instructions at their desks when needed, so that they have no difficulty in entering the regular classes and in carrying the work along with the other students. Classes and Individual Work. In the busi- ness department the subjects of arithmetic, law, rapid calculation, and letter writing are taught in regular classes in the lecture rooms. Four classes are maintained in arithmetic, each in a different part of the subject, so that pupils may enter at any time and be accommodated with classes to suit their advancement. The subjects of bookkeeping, writing, and spelling are taught in the study rooms, much of the instruction being individual. The actual busi- ness practice and banking is taken up after the student is sufficiently advanced to keep his own books properly. This work is carried on in a large department specially fitted up for that purpose. The instruction in this de- partment is individual, and the work is devel- oped from the transactions of the students with each other. In the Shorthand department there are several classes in the principles of the system, graded to suit the advancement of the different students. After mastering the principles, the student is advanced to the dictation classes which are graded according to the speed at which the notes are taken, 70, 80, 90, and 100 words a minute. After making these speeds, the student is promoted to the advanced or graduating class where much office practice and a great variety of work is given. Daily practice on the typewriter is required at regu- lar hours, a variety of practice, both plain work and tabulating being given, so that on attaining the required speed in shorthand, the student is also a rapid operator on the type- writer, the touch system being used. In the Normal Penmanship department in- struction is given in the form of blackboard lessons, individual work by the teacher, and careful practice at the desk on a large variety of work, so that the graduate is an all-round penman and engrosser, and thoroughly quali fied to teach this beautiful art to others. Much individual instruction and personal attention are given to the students of Gem City Busi- ness College. Having a large school, there is a more perfect classification of the work than may be had in the smaller schools, and a bet- ter opportunity for individual instruction. There is the same difference as is found in comparing the graded school with the district school. These advantages are greatly appreci- ated by many of our students who have pre- viously attended smaller commercial schools. Examinations. No examination is re- quired at the time of entering school. Exam- ' inations in commercial law, arithmetic, and letter-writing are given in classes as soon as each subject is completed, which is usually from six weeks to three months from the time the classes are organized. There are four divisions of the arithmetic work, the grades on the several sections being averaged for the final grade. The various sets in bookkeeping as well as the sections in actual business and banking are examined as soon as each is presented for in- spection. Examinations are held in bookkeeping and spelling each month. Examinations in business writing are given when all the other grades of the business course have been made. Examinations in shorthand are given in the form of tests as the various classes are pro- moted, the final test being made in the ad- vanced class. Typewriting is also examined by tests at the various stages of the course. All the above examinations are held in classes and must be written. Examinations in the normal penmanship department are given individually as each stu- dent completes the course. Civil Service. Our courses are particularly . adapted for those wishing to take the different civil service examinations. A greater per- centage of our students are preparing for gov- ernment work than ever before. This past year a large number of our students passed the civil service examinations and were ap- pointed to positions at excellent salaries. Diplomas. An elegant diploma is issued free to each student who completes all the branches of a regular course with satisfactory grades. Bachelor of Accounts Degree. Graduates of the business department making an average of 90% on all the subjects of the course, re- ceive a separate diploma conferring the degree Bachelor of Accounts. Master of Accounts Degree. The Master of Accounts degree is conferred on all gradu- ates of the business department making an average grade of 95%. This degree represents a high grade of proficiency and is much cov- eted by ambitious students. The annual Roll of Honor is made up from those who receive- this degree. Demand for Graduates. There is a large demand for graduates from the different courses. These calls are for stenographers, bookkeepers, cashiers, business managers, and teachers and come to us from business houses, banks, and educational, institutions of all kinds. We frequently have more calls for commercial teachers and combination graduates than we can fill. Positions for Students. We do not guar- antee positions, although we take great pleas- ure in assisting our worthy graduates to secure employment, and we are often unable to sup- ply all the calls made on us for competent help. Mail Lessons. We do not give lessons by mail for the reason that the student does not receive much benefit from this plan of in- struction. Arriving in Quincy. Endeavor to reach Quincy on a business day. We do not keep the College Office open on Sunday. If you should happen to arrive on Sunday, go to a hotel and come to the College Office on Mon- day morning. Students arriving in the night at the C, B. Q. depot, should stop at the Moecker or the Wood Hotel, and then take a street car for the college next morning. The Moecker is just across the street from the depot, and the Wood is only a block away. All street cars leaving the C, B. Q. depot pass within half a block of the college building. Those arriving at night on the Wabash railroad should take a hack to the St. James Hotel. The Wabash depot is but three blocks from the St. James Hotel, and four blocks from the college. Retain Your Checks. Students should re- tain their baggage checks until a lodging place is selected, when the school will assist in get- ting the baggage transferred from the depot at light expense. Special Information. Information in re- gard to the different departments of the school, prices of tuition and books, and much other information of value may be found under appropriate headings farther along in the catalogue. Write to us. When convenient to do so, please write us, stating the date, as nearly as possible, when you expect to arrive in Quincy. BORROWING THE MONEY Our correspondents sometimes ask us this question: Will it pay to borrow the money with which to take a course in the Gem City Business College? For ordinary purposes, we would discour- age a young man or a young woman from going into debt, but for the purpose of secur- ing a good shorthand and business education, we certainly believe that it is a good business proposition, for after graduating one can soon pay back the money spent on his education, and the education remains a permanent in- vestment. If your means are limited and you are desirous of qualifying yourself for business, you will find that there are a number of well- to-do people in your neighborhood, who, if you will go to them and state your case frankly, will be glad to assist you in getting an education. In a great many cases people who do not know you intimately but who know you to be a steady, reliable young man or ybung woman, will be glad to assist you in this way, and we would suggest that if it is necessary for you to borrow the money, make the effort and you will not regret it in after life. SEND US NAMES If you have friends who are, or should be, interested in a business or shorthand educa- tion, kindly send us their names and we shall take pleasure in sending them our catalogue, and we will write each a personal letter set- ting forth the advantages of our institution. College Lecture Room, with Class in Commercial Law, Conducted by Prof. White This elegant lecture room is fifty by ninety feet, with high ceiling and abundant light. This room presents a busy scene throughout the day, classes from the various study rooms assembling here period after period according to a regular program, which is controlled automatically by a large electric clock in the college office. The lecture room is also used by the College Literary Society for its weekly programs, and as an assembly hall for the school to listen to lectures by prominent speakers who may be asked to address the students A New Speed -and -Accuracy Record Established in a Shorthand Contest A PERFECT RECORD IN SHORTHAND MISS PAULA E. WERNING, at Baltimore, Md., October 1, 1910, won the shorthand con test for speed and accuracy. She made a record in the 120-word-a-minute test which has never been equaled in any contest, amateur or pro- fessional, by handing in an absolutely correct transcript, and thereby winning over all the other competitors and receiving the first prize medal. Miss Werning attended the Gem City Business Col- lege about five years ago, taking a course in our Short- hand department. She was a very bright student and graduated in less than five months ' time. Upon completion of her course we sent her to a position in Chicago. In April, 1909, she took the Civil Service examination in shorthand and typewriting, suc- cessfully passing the 120-word-a-minute test in stenog- raphy. In September she was appointed to a position in the Navy Department, Washington, D. C, which she held until May, 1910, when she accepted her present position with the Gregg Publishing Company of New York City. Our shorthand and typewriting department, with its expert teachers, is not equaled in any other school. Those wishing to take a successful shorthand course will make no mistake in attending the Gem City Busi- ness College. MISS PAULA E. WERNING Private Secretary to J. R. Gregg President of the Gregg Publishing Co. New York City What Miss Werning has done may be accom- plished by any ambitious young person who enters the Gem City Business College and applies the time diligently to study, thus taking advan- tage of the opportunities afforded by this excel- lent school. The Judges ' Report of the Contest: Mr. A. B. Marshall, Chairman of the Judges, in awarding the prize, had the following to say regarding Miss Werning and her work: " In the shorthand contest something resulted that I don ' t think has ever been obtained from previous contests, and that is one absolutely accurate transcrip- tion. At 120 words a minute Miss Werning tran- scribed absolutely correctly, which according to our rules gives her the prize. As I said before, it is the first time to my knowledge in any contest, amateur or professional, that there has been an absolutely correct transcription turned in to the judges. At 130 words a minute Miss Werning made four errors, giving her the high net speed of 129 ' 4 words per minute, which gives her both the accuracy prize and honorable mention for high speed. I might say for Miss Werning that I have never in all my experience, both as a teacher and a writer of shorthand, seen a transcription turned in which had such wonderful punctuation, such accuracy in all lines of work, and I think Miss Werning on her first entrance into a contest has surpassed even her own expectation. She deserves great credit— coming from New York, entering a contest in a strange city, among strange faces, and making a record such as she has made. " Miss Werning was one of our high-grade shorthand students, and it is with a great deal of pleasure that we note her progress and the success she is making in the stenographic world. The abstract from a letter recently received from her and given below, shows what she thinks of the Gem City Business College: " When I was ready to attend business college I sent for cata- logs from all over. My sister was determined to have me go to Chicago, but I insisted on attending the school I considered best, and 1 have had cause ever since to congratulate myself on my good judgment. Furthermore, I am so glad that there I learned Gregg shorthand. I chose the school on account of its general excellence and not for the system of shorthand taught, as I did not know one from another. Query: Being the most excellent, how could thelG. C. B. C. teach any other system than the Gregg? 13 Board and Lodging THERE is no city the size of Quincy in the entire country where good board and lodging can be secured so cheaply as Quincy. In the larger cities board and lodging cannot be had for less than $5 to $7 a week. Good board and lodging with a private family may be had in Quincy for from $3.75 to $4 a week. Some students do self-boarding and a number of married stu- dents do light-housekeeping. We have no trouble in securing pleasant rooms either furnished or unfurnished, for students desiring to board themselves. Our rooming man ac- companies each student until satisfactorily lo- cated. Y. W. C. Home. A number of lady students can have board and lodging at the Y. W. C. Home for $4 a week, with the privi- lege of doing such of their laundry work as they desire. The Home is heated by furnace and is a very pleasant place. Y. W. C. A. The Young Women ' s Chris- tian Association has pleasant rooms conven- iently located, and serves noon-day lunches. Many of our students take advantage of this Association. It also has furnished parlors, a reading room, rest room, etc. Students ' Club. There is also a Students ' Boarding Club where the table board costs about $2.30 per week, which, with furnished room at $1 a week will make the total ex- pense about $3.30. Work for Board. A number of our stu- dents each year work for their board, or for board and lodging, outside of school hours and get along nicely in their studies. We are always glad to assist our students to secure places to work, if they find it necessary to help defray their expenses. We are frequently asked by students to assist them in selecting a course of study. We are always glad to do this, for our long experi- ence enables us to advise each student for the best. If one expects to confine his efforts to business pursuits, the Business Course would naturally be selected, and on the other hand if one has his mind thoroughly made up that he wishes to follow the shorthand or reporting profession, the Shorthand Course would be the one to select. Experience teaches us that in a large majority of offices the student would get a much better posdtion, with greater chances for promotion if he were qualified in both de- partments. The fact is that during the past ten years we have not been able to supply the calls made upon us for high-class combination graduates, and we would call the especial at- tention of bright young men and women to tli is fact. One who expects to advance in his own work and make the very best use of his opportunities should select one of the combi- nation courses. It will give us pleasure to hear from any student who is in doubt as to the best course to select to suit his individual re- quirements. PENS We manufacture in especially fine line of pens, as follows: The Business Pen, a large pen with a medium point, rather stiff; made especially for bookkeepers and busi- ness men. The Banking Pen, a large pen more flexible and a little finer than the Business Pen. Also a good pen for bookkeepers or banks. The fpecial Pen, same shape as the Banking Pen, but smaller and more suitable for ladies or public school children. The Perfection Pen, a very fine, flexible pen. suitable for ladies and for penmen who wish to do fine pen work and flourishing. Prices are as follows: 30c per quarter gross, post- age prepaid; $1 per gross. Send for a trial box. 14 Books and Stationery Books and stationery for the various courses of study are published by the college and kept in stock at the office. The cost is about as follows: For the Business Course $14.00 For Shorthand and Typewriting Course 5.00 For the Full Combination Course 17.00 For the Short Combination Course 12.00 SEND FOR BOOKS Frequently prospective students order some or all of the text books before coming to Quincy. This is an excellent plan where one has some leisure time that could be devoted to study. The following list includes the text books used in the different courses: Complete Bookkeeping $ 2.00 Commercial Law 2.00 Arithmetic 2.00 Letter Writer 50 Speller 25 Penmanship Copies 25 Gregg Shorthand Manual 1.50 Gregg Exercise Book 50 Phonographic Amanuensis (Pitman) 1.00 Typewriting Manual 1.00 Any book in the above list will be sent pre- paid on receipt of price.

The time in school determines the cost. J Advanced Bookkeeping Department The cut at the right shows the Advanced Bookkeeping department. The work here is a continuation of the business branches. The more advanced principles of ac- counting are taught and applied to different lines of busi- ness. Penmanship is continued with its application to business forms, page writing, and letter writing. Orthog- raphy is also given attention, and the student prepares for further advancement to the Actual Business and Bank- ing department, where he puts into use the principles he has learned in the other departments of the school. After completing this part of the work and finishing the other branches satisfactorily, the beautiful diploma is issued. Introductory Bookkeeping Department The cut at the left shows the Introductory Bookkeep- ing department in session. This department is elegantly fitted up for the work of the business branches. On com- mencing, the student is assigned a commodious desk, with drawers provided for his books and supplies. Here he i instructed in the principles of bookkeeping by competent teachers, both at his desk and by means of lectures. In this department also he learns to write an elegant business hand under the instruction of a careful teacher. Here he has his daily exercises in written spelling, and here he prepares his lessons in arithmetic, commercial law, and the other subjects of the course. After progressing suffi- ciently in the different studies, the student is transferred to the Advanced department. ♦ ♦ Importance of Commercial Studies ♦ ♦ TOO much emphasis cannot be placed on the value of the commercial and short- hand subjects. The branches compris- ing our courses are extremely practical to any one who expects to engage in business either for himself or for others. Our courses cf study have been very care- fully worked out. and are now the result of forty years of improvement. We have kept them up to the highest standard in order to fully meet the exacting demands of the busi- ness public. The science of bookkeeping should be un- derstood by everyone whether he expects to put this knowledge to actual use or not. The proprietor or manager of a business should be as well posted as the man who takes charge of the books. The practice of bookkeeping and stenography is very pleasant and profita- ble, and those who are skilled in these sub- jects are in constant demand in business offices. There is a large call at all times for thoroughly competent stenographers and bookkeepers. In order to make a success of bookkeeping or office work, however, it is necessary to be proficient in the different branches of the courses we offer. A knowledge of commercial law is of great importance. One who understands the princi- ples of contracts is qualified to draw up his own agreements as well as to pass upon the legal points in contracts presented to him by others. Every business man should under- stand negotiable instruments and the various rules of law in connection with their use; such as, endorsements, details of presentment, col- lection, protests, etc. He should likewise be familiar with the rules of agency, partner- ship, and corporations, so that he may act in any of these capacities with a clear under- standing of his rights and duties. The pur- chase and sale of goods, the rules of shipping through common carriers, the conveyance of property both by deed and by will, and many other points of interest to everyone are care- fully taken up in connection with our business course. The subject of mathematics is everywhere recognized as essential in the mental develop- ment of young people. In our business and full combination courses, commercial arithme- tic is given an important place. The work is subdivided into three sections in different grades of advancement. Only those subjects are treated that are directly useful in the busi- ness office or factory. Higher forms of mathe- matics are not taken up, but much attention is given to practical work. The rapid calculation work is given special attention, daily drills being held in which ac- curacy and speed are made of first importance. Adding, multiplying, the use of aliquots, com- puting interests and discounts, averaging ac- counts, etc.,. are dwelt on until each student is proficient in these valuable accomplishments. It is surprising to what degree of proficiency one may be trained and developed in this work. Penmanship. Too much stress cannot be placed upon the importance of a good hand- writing for business purposes. All the stu- dents of the business department receive daily lessons in penmanship by efficient teachers. There is no extra charge for taking the sub- ject of business penmanship. For those who desire to specialize in penmanship or to be- come teachers of such, we have an elegantly equipped Normal Penmanship department pre- sided over by Prof. Behrensmeyer, who de- votes his whole time to the different branches of the beautiful art. There is a separate tuition for the Normal Course in penmanship Letter writing i an important part of our business, shorthand, and penmanship courses. The student is taught the correct forms, and given a large amount of practice in writing letters on various business subjects. The sub- jects of punctuation and correct business English are taught in connection with the letter writing work. Spelling is an accomplishment that every- one should endeavor to acquire. It is unfor- tunate that the public schools of the country are not giving the attention to the subject of orthography that they formerly did. Those who take our courses of study have daily drills in written spelling, and all are brought up to a high standard of proficiency before finishing the courses. Our actual business and banking depart- ment is very practical and interesting. In this department the student learns to transact dif- ferent kinds of business just as it is done in the outside world. He learns business man- agement and auditing as well as bookkeeping. In this department, he puts into practice the facts, customs, and principles learned in the other parts of the course. All our students are enthusiastic in their praises of this depart- ment of the school, an d many of them after going into business for themselves write us that what they learned in this department has been of great benefit to them in making a success. Shorthand has come to be a necessity for both young men and women who expect to make the greatest success in business life. There is a large field for those who qualify themselves thoroughly in shorthand and type- writing, and the other branches of this course. Th ere is no more pleasant occupation than that of amanuensis or reporter. Shorthand has been the stepping stone for hundreds of prominent people who are now at the head of large institutions. Shorthand, especially, fur- nishes an easy avenue of advancement to young men who wish to get into large busi- ness enterprises for themselves. Typewriting of course is an adjunct of shorthand; they naturally go together. In connection with our courses of study, our students become familiar with the various modern office devices, such as the adding machine, the mimeograph, the letter-press, and other duplicating devices, check protect- ors, etc. Actual Business and Banking Department G. C. B. C. from a Photograph WE PRESENT herewith a photographic view of a section of the the department as it looks in working order. The banks and other offices Actual Business and Banking Department of the Gem City situated in the back part of the room do not show very clearly, on account Business College, taken while in session. The picture does not " of the distance from the camera. Many of the offices do not show at all, do justice to the room, yet it will give the reader a general impression of being located in the section of the room not shown in the photograph. — ID Actual Business and Banking Department The Largest, Best Equipped, and Most Suc- cessful Department of the Kind Conducted by any Business College in America PROFESSOR J. H. CRAFTON, who pre- sides over this department, has been an instructor of this school for over thirty years. He is also a director of the Illinois State Bank and of the Gem City Building and Loan Association both of this city. He endeavors at all times to keep his department thoroughly practical and up to date, and with his long and successful experi- ence in this work, together with his practical experience in the business world, he has built up a great actual business department. There is nothing in the country quite equal to this department and it is necessary for one to take the work to appreciate its scope and magnitude. Two able assistants, besides the principal, devote their whole time to this department. Here the student puts into actual practice the knowledge acquired from his text books and class instruction, and after com- pleting the required work he is qualified to fill acceptably any bookkeeping position. The Actual Business department presents an interesting and lively scene to the visitor. It is a veritable bee hive of industry. Here the students are conducting on their own account and with each other the various lines of business embraced in the course. Whole- sale dealers are filling orders from retail merchants. They in turn are selling to their customer ' s or, learning of a better market elsewhere, are shipping goods away to a conj-; : mission merchant, who sells them and returns the proceeds. The transportation company is busy hurrying shipments to purchasers; insur- ance agents are writing policies on property; real estate dealers are effecting sales; bank tellers are receiving deposits or paying checks; merchants are borrowing money at bank, or discounting the notes received from their customers; bank clerks are collecting notes and drafts; stenographers are taking dictation — and all the business activities of a great city are here going on at once, each student striving to make a success of his own work. This department is a miniature business world in itself. It is fitted up in regular counting-house style, no expense having been spared in providing modern equipment, and it is certainly the most elegant and best appointed Actual Business and Banking de- partment in America. There are four large banks, two commission houses, two wholesale houses, a real estate office, insurance office, express office, and freight office — each elegantly furnished and conveniently situated for the transaction of business, together with desks for two hundred retail merchants, located throughout the body of the room, each representing a separate business in a different town. The lines of business followed embrace wholesaling, retailing, commission, insurance, transportation, banking, etc. The Actual Busi- ness Course is carefully graded. The student first begins as a single proprietor, and after advancing sufficiently in the work he admits a partner, and the business is conducted in this form for another period, when he finally incor- porates the business and conducts it on this plan until the course is completed. Each student, on entering the department, is furnished by the principal with his capital in college currency, when he at once leases a store, pays a month ' s rent, and proceeds with 1 business as in the great outside world. He deposits his money in the bank; buys and sells goods; draws checks, notes, and . ..drafts; discounts notes at the banks; opens % ' and closes his books at regular periods, and in this way he not only learns to transact business correctly, but he also keeps his own books, which are made up entirely from his own transactions with the other members of the department. Merchant and Bookkeeper. Each student is thus both merchant and bookkeeper, and as he passes through the several grades of this department he receives a thorough, practical knowledge of business transactions and book- keeping that would require many months of practice in every-day life to obtain; and when he has finished his course he is competent to transact any general business, or to keep any set of business books. Our banks are conducted on the modern plan, and are fitted up in first-class style with every convenience necessary for properly systematizing and filing the details of a regular banking business. The system of bookkeeping adopted conforms to that used by the best national and private banks. The volume of business transacted in these banks is as great as that of any well-regulated bank in the great business world. The Variety and character of the transactions correspond to those of the best banks, and the student who successively fills the office of messenger, collection and discount clerk, teller, cashier, and general bookkeeper, is qualified to perform the same duties in any banking house of the country without further practice or appren- ticeship. Practice in Dictating Letters. Each stu- dent who takes the Business Course gets a very beneficial and practical drill in dictating his business letters to a stenographer, who transcribes them on the typewriter and re- turns them for the student ' s signature. Stu- dents in this department also learn to use the adding machine and other practical office de- vices. The Actual Business and Banking depart- ment belongs to, and is a part of the Business Cou rse of this institution, and the students are therefore entitled to its advantages without -payment of additional tuition: it is included in the Life Scholarship.

Texas City, Texas Dear Professor Musselman: I completed the short combination course in April, 1909, and I at once took a trial position with the Federal Trust Company, St. Louis, Missouri, at $30 per month. The second month I received $75, and at the end of five months I resigned to take a position with the Texas City Refining Company as bookkeeper at $100 a month. I worked for them ten months in that capacity, and September 1st, they made me assistant treasurer and office manager at a salary of $125 a month. I quit stenographic work November 1st, last. However, I find it very convenient in- my work at the desk. I have almost dropped bookkeeping also — my duties being such that all my time " is taken up with directing others. I find it very convenient to haye " Geni City Busi- ness College students in the officer and I expect always, as we employ help continually,, to. get one of the Gems if possible. Very truly yours, LEE LA FERNEY. " On November 26th the college received the following telegram from Mr. La Ferney: We are in need of a first class young man who knows bookkeeping and shorthand. Can you refer or furnish us with one ? Answer by wire. Will pay $75 per month to good man. In response to this message we sent Mr. Vincent Grainger, a combination graduate. Mr. Grainger had been a poor boy and was obliged to earn his board while in school by working during spare hours. To show that he is giving satisfaction, we received a letter from Mr. La Ferney on March 1st, 1911, in which he states " Mr. Grainger is giving us very satisfactory service. " Mr. La Ferney also states that his own responsibilities have been increased, and that he has been promoted twice since writing the foregoing letter.

Dear Mr. Musselman: Knowing that you ever retain a friendly interest in former students, and in their progress after leaving school, I am writing you privately to tell you some- thing of myself and my progress. After the short time spent in Peoria in stenographic work, I came to St. Louis, and have been associated with the Federal Trust Company for considerably more than a year, beginning as stenographer. At present I am cashier of the company, and am acting as private secretary to the president. My appreciation of the training which I received in your institution is very deep and I can assure you I attrib- ute my progress in the commercial world to the thor- ough instruction received in your school. I trust that the Gem City is prospering. R. A. SCOTT. BANKING GROUP: WE PRESENT on the opposite page a handsome group-picture of students recently taking the banking course in the G. C. B. C. The group is sur- rounded by portraits of a number of our graduates who are now employed in banks in various capacities. Mr. G. E. Baker is with the First National Bank, at Sarco.xie, Missouri. In a letter to the secretary he says: I - deem it a pleasure to have the privilege of speaking a word for your worthy institution. I con- sider the Gem City Business College second to none in efficiency, advantages, and management. Since com- pleting the commercial course I have never had occa- sion to regret the step, but have looked back upon the time spent at the Gem City as the most pleasant and profitable of my life. I found the faculty most courteous and painstaking, and feel that my life was greatly benefited for having met them. I was recom- mended to a position in the Mechanics-American National Bank, of St. Louis, which place I held for some time prior to accepting my present position with the bank in my home town. Mr. E. T. Smith is now with the State Bank of Turon, at Turon, Kansas. He re- cently wrote: Upon .finishing the business and banking courses in 1908, I at once located at Turon, Kansas, accepting the position of cashier in the State Bank. I still hold that position and have never experienced any difficulty in any line of banking work. This is due to the excellent training received at your school. I have no hesitancy in recommending the G. C. B. C. as the best in the land in thorough training and courteous treatment. Miss Mae D. Quick finished our Combina- tion Course several years ago, and has since been constantly employed. In a letter dated June 2, 1911, she says: Just five years ago I left the dear old G._ C. B. C. carrying with me the " long white roll " which meant that I had finished the combination course, and of which I was and have ever since been justly proud. I secured a position as bookkeeper and stenographer for a real estate firm in Toledo, Ohio, which I held ab vii. three years leaving it to accept a better posi- tion here with the National Bank of Monmouth. I cannot say enough in praise of your school and its corps of efficient teachers. I would advise all young people to take the combination course. Miss Martha L. Oberly says: I take great pleasure in writing you as to my whereabouts, and what I am doing. I am employed at the Citizens ' Bank here as stenographer. I like my work very much and really enjoy it. I am doing banking work and some bookkeeping, as well as stenographic work. The president of the bank has complimented me on the quality of my work. I have also done some work in a law office after banking hours. Mr. L. T. D. Beckett is cashier of the Dearfield State Bank at Dearfield, Kansas. He writes: I often think of all my Gem City associates and am always pleased to hear from them. Soon after leaving Quincy I secured a position as bookkeeper in this bank. Three years ago I was married and about the same time was elected assistant cashier to the Dearfield Bank. I find no difficulty in performing my duties, and feel that I owe my success to the educa- tion I received at the G. C. B. C. Mr. J. L. Miller is pleasantly located with the Rawlins National Bank, at Rawlins, Wyoming. He writes: I am having no trouble at all in my work, and am getting along fine. I shall recommend my friends to the Gem City. Mr. E. D. Bird writes from the Farmers ' and Traders ' Bank, at St. Joseph, Missouri, where he is employed. He says: I am sure that my success is due to the thorough- ness of the training received at your school. I am confident that the G. C. B. C. has but few if any equals, and no superiors in the commercial world. I recommend it to any one contemplating a commercial course. There is no chance to make a mistake if one decides on the G. C. B. C. Mr. E. M. Oetting was recently placed by us as bookkeeper for the Farmers ' State Ex- change Bank at Dallas City, Illinois. Mr. Rolla Babcook and Mr. S. G. Rowe are also employed in the same bank. Mr. Oetting writes : I took the business and banking course in your institution, and after graduation I was offered several positions by you and finally accepted the one I am now holding in this bank. I find my work very pleas- ant and have no trouble in keeping the books in good shape. The directors seem well satisfied with my work. I can heartily recommend your school. Mr. Spencer Waldron is with the bank of Hamburg, Hamburg, Illinois. He writes: I am glad to state that I have been reaping good results from my labors at the " Gem. " I have never experienced any difficulty in holding any of the posi- tions that I have had since leaving your school. I have been cashier of the bank: of Hamburg ever since it was organized in 1907. I now receive a salary of $100 a month. Mr. Frank Owens is now head bookkeeper and assistant teller in the Kokomo National Bank, of Kokomo, Indiana. He says: I like the work very much and cannot speak too highly of what the G. C. B. C. did in preparing me for successful work. I hope that all young men interested in their future welfare will enroll in your school. Mr. H. C. Ritter is cashier of the New Melle Bank, at New Melle, Missouri. He says: I am always pleased to hear that the good old G. C. B. C. is making advancement for it is 1 ' The School. ' ' Mr. A. M. Luna is cashier of the bank of Piedmont, at Piedmont, Missouri. He say s: It affords me great pleasure to recommend the old Gem City to any one desiring a business education. I think I can safely say that it is the best school of its kind in the United States, and I feel that my position as cashier of this bank is due to the training I received in your excellent school during 1907. Mr. Thomas C. Smith is with the Farmers ' Exchange Bank, at Memphis, Missouri. He writes : Since securing my position here, I appreciate the knowledge I obtained at the G. C. B. C. much more than ever. I like my work very much, and find my business education of great help to me. Mr. Joiada J. James is bookkeeper and stenographer for the First National Bank, Moulton, Iowa. In a letter to President Musselman he says: After completing the combination course in the G. C. B. C-, I accepted a position as stenographer and bookkeeper with the First National Bank of Moulton. I find my work here both pleasant and profitable. I owe my success to the thorough instruc- tion received in your good school. It gives me great pleasure to speak a good word for the Gem City Business College to any person who is thinking of qualifying for business life. Introductory Shorthand Department The cut at the left presents a view of the Introductory Shorthand department. Students beginning the subject of shorthand are given a seat in this department, where they learn the principles and practice of the art. The work is graduated into a number of classes, and each stu j dent is allowed to advance from class to class as rapidly as is consistent with good work. A glimpse of the type- writing room may be seen at the left and back of this picture. After students have completed the principles of shorthand and have developed sufficient speed, they are promoted to the Advanced department. The cut at the right is a view of the Advanced Short- hand department in session. The work is subdivided into classes of different speeds. The students are advanced from class to class, as they succeed in making the required tests, until they finally reach the graduating class. A variety of office dictation and practice is given them before they complete the work and receive their diplomas. THIS department of our school is devoted exclusively to instruction in Shorthand and Typewriting, so as to enable its students to acquire, in the shortest time possible, the art of verbatim reporting. Its object is to equip young men and women to take positions as private secretaries, steno- graphic law clerks, court reporters, govern- ment employees, and as amanuenses in busi- ness houses. The best way to learn shorthand is in the shorthand atmosphere of a shorthand school, under the judicious direction of experi- enced teachers, who know just what difficulties the students will encounter, and how to over- come them. Shorthand for Ladies. No avenue of em- ployment for ladies is so fascinating, so cer- tain in its results, nor so well compensated as that of the stenographer and typewriter. It has opened up a field of labor more re- munerative than ordinary vocations, and is lighter, less fatiguing, and better adapted for them than any other. The Gregg system of shorthand has been taught in our school for the past twelve years, and we have found it to meet every require- ment for amanuensis work or court reporting. It is the shortest, simplest, and most interest- ing system of shorthand to learn. Our gradu- ates are known not only for the rapidity and ability with which they take their notes, but also for their perfect typewriting, good spell- ing, and the general good appearance of their work. The Pitman and Graham Systems. Many students enroll in the Gem City who have tudied shorthand at home or in some other school. If they are familiar with any Pitmanic system, we always advise them to continue in this system. We maintain classes in the Pit- manic systems and often have writers of sev- eral systems in the same class. Shorthand for Young Men. Although there is always a demand for lady stenographers, yet this does not lessen the demand for male stenographers. There are as many young men as young women taking our shorthand and typewriting course. The demand for male graduates of this department is very large. We cannot supply all the calls that are made on us for young men as privvate secretaries, railroad clerks, law stenogranhers, and court reporters. We hope that many young men may select the shorthand and typewriting- course. Typewriters Used. We employ nearly 200 Remington and Underwood typewriters. We also have in use a number of L. C. Smith and Oliver machines. The keyboards of all these machines are the- same, and the student who learns to operate any one of them can readily use any of the others. The typewriting machines are furnished by the college and the students of the Shorthand and Typewriting department pay nothing- extra for the use of the machines — this is included in the tuition paid. The touch system of typewriting is used in our school. The advantages of the touch system may readily be seen, for the operator is not required to take his eyes from his notes to watch the keys of the machine while writing. Office Practice. Each student of the Shorthand and Typewriting department, be- fore graduating, is given a thorough drill in office practice, taking letters from dictation, getting out circular letters on the mimeo- graph or planotype, filing carbon copies of letters, and other details of regular office work, so that on completing this course the student is competent to take up the duties of an office position without hesitation or embarrassment. Thoroughness. A stenographic course that was satisfactory ten years ago will not meet the requirements of today, so exacting has become the business public. Our course has, therefore, been strengthened from time to time to meet this demand, and hence Gem City graduates are competent to fill satisfac- torily any office position from the start. Students of Other Schools. Many students of other schools, and those who have studied at home, attend our school each year for. the purpose of completing- the course in a high- grade school. They find that the diploma and influence of the Gem City Business College assists " them greatly in securing paying sit- uations. Civil Service. Our Shorthand Course qualifies the student for successfully entering the civil service work. Many of our graduates have taken the civil service examination, and been placed on the eligible list, after which they soon secure appointments. Court Reporting. Quite a number of students each year qualify themselves in this department of our school for court reporters and as law stenographers, while others take the civil service examination and accept gov- ernment positions. ETHEL P. GRIFFITH Centerville, Iowa Dear Professor Musselman : I know you take a great interest in all your old students, and am writing to you in regard to my success. Since leaving old G. C. B. C. I have had no difficulty whatever in securing employment, and am now stenographer for the Southern Iowa Coal Company, of this city. From a financial standpoint, the time I spent in your school has been very profitable to me. It has at least doubled my earning capacity. I find no difficulty either in taking dictation or in transcribing my notes. This is due to the excellent instruction received while a student at your school. I shall always gladly recommend your institution to any one contemplating a business or shorthand course. Wishing you continued success, I remain Yours very truly, ETHEL P. GRIFFITH. Mr. R. J. Grover is vice-pi " esident of the Union State Bank of Arkansas City, Kansas, and Mr. H. M. Pickler is assistant in the same institution. Mr. William V. Stewart is employed at the United States Indian Agency, at Muskogee, Okla. ' -). Our Shorthand Teachers WE PRIDE ourselves on the excellence of our shorthand teachers. We pre- sent on this page a cut of the solid gold medal won by Professor Paul G. Duncan, principal of our introductory shorthand department, last year at the Gregg Teachers ' Convention, at Chicago. The medal was awarded for the best presentation of a shorthand lesson, and was in competition with a number of the best shorthand teachers of this country. This is a great honor, both to Professor Duncan and to the Gem City Busi- ness College. Professor W. W. Lewis, prin- cipal of the advanced shorthand department, is an expert reporter and is also one of the finest shorthand teachers in America. GABRIEL CARDENAS La Ciudad De Leon Saltillo, Coah, Mexico, Feb. 6, 1911. Mr. V. G. Musselman, Secretary, G. C. B. C. Dear Mr. Musselman : It certainly affords me great pleasure to speak a good word for your school, and for the many advan- tages it affords. I can truly and conscientiously say that your school is all that it represents itself to be. After having spent several months some two years ago under your bookkeeping instructors, I found the course in your school to be very thorough and prac- tical, and I shall always advise any one desirnig a thorough business education to go to the Gem City Business College. Wishing for you the success which your great .institution merits, and with kind regards to yourself and faculty, I remain Very respectfully yours, liAI ' .KIKL I lil K AS. Miss Hazel D. Crabb has «n excellent position as stenographer for Shaw, Ross Dyke, at El Centro, Calif. Miss Ina Poland is teaching shorthand and the com- mercial branches in the Massey Business College, at Montgomery, Alabama, Normal Penmanship Department, Gem City Business College, Quincy, Illinois This department is presided over by Professor H. P. Behrensmeyer, who has no superior in this country as an artist penman, and who devotes his entire time and talents to this department. All graduates secure paying positions as teachers of the art of penmanship, or as policy writers in large insurance offices — v. — Normal Penmanship Department as All Graduates Hold Good Situations ON THE opposite page we present a picture of the Normal Pen manship department in session. This department is maintained in order to furnish high class facilities to those who desire to qualify themselves for teaching the art of penmanship in all its branches. The room is elegantly furnished with a commodious desk for each student. The walls are tastily decorated with many hne specimens of penmanship and a large blackboard space is provided for students ' practice. Professor Behrensmeyer, who is acknowledged as one of the best penmen in the world, devotes his whole time and talenfs to the Normal Penmanship department. The pen- manship students make rapid progress from the first. All the graduates of this department are sought out by commercial schools, as teachers of this beautiful art, and by the large insur- ance companies of the coun- try, to serve as policy writers and engrossers. We have more calls for graduates of the penmanship course than we can fill. The Gem City Business College is the only school in the west that has a Normal Penmanship department that is in charge of a noted and skilled penman, who has a national reputation, and who gives his whole time to teaching penmanship, lettering, engrossing, etc., and whose grad- uates are employed as soon as they are through their course of instruction. Highest Awards. The penmen of the Gem City Business College ' have been awarded the first premiums, diplomas, and medals on their display of penmanship wherever exhibited. A group picture of some of these medals is shown herewith. No accomplishment is so useful to a young person as penmanship. The students of this department are taught to write the plain rapid hand for business, and the beautiful copy hand for teaching. Those desiring to learn ornamental penmanship find the facilities unsurpassed for acquiring all branches of the beautiful art, such as flourishing, pen drawing, engrossing, lettering, card writing, specimen work for exhibition, blackboard writing, and best methods of teaching. 29 Graduates of the penmanship department make first class teachers who are a success from the beginning. The country is full of ordinary teachers of penmanship, but what young men and young women need is to get above the ordinary and their success is established. All graduates of this department hold good situations at from $85 to $150 a month. There are hundreds of graduates of our Normal Penman- ship department teaching in business colleges and normal schools all over the United States. You can scarcely name a college in Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Texas, or the entire western half of the United States, that does not have one or more of our students as teachers. There are also many of our gradu- ates located in the eastern and southern states. It is not too much, then, to say that we claim for this department and its students the_ greatest success ever achieved in this country by any similar institution. EMPLOYMENT Below we give a list of a few of the former students of the Normal Penmanship department who have taken high rank as teachers and as penmen and who have made great successes on account of their superior penmanship and abilities.

Dear Sir: Through your recommendation I se- cured the position as typewriting teacher in the .Central High School, Duluth, Minn., at a salary of $70 per month. I began my work here last Monday, October 24th, and am well pleased with conditions in every way I have found Mr. Carey all and even more than you recommended him to be, and he seems well pleased with my work. I desire to express my appreciation and thanks for all you have done in my behalf. With the of good wishes for the continued success of: " Gem City, ' ' I remain Yours sincerely, EDDITH MAICHEL. Miss Minnie Barnett has a position with the Uni- versity of North Dakota. Mr. C. T. Kent is with the Carter County Land and Fruit Company, Van Buren, Missouri. The following is a clipping from the Mem- phis, Missouri, Review, telling of the success of Mr. Clarence Edmondson, who took the Combination Course in the Gem City Business College about two years ago: " Clarence Edmondson. a former Memphis boy, a son of Mr. and Mrs. D. V. Edmondson, east of Memphis, has a fine position as instructor in bookkeeping, pen- manship, etc., in the public schools at Chattaonoga, Tennessee, at a salary of $175 per month. He also has charge of a night school which nets him a neat salary. His friends congratulate him on his success. " — Memphis (Mo.) Review. In a recent letter Mr. Edmondson says: I completed the Business Course with an M. A. degree in your school. I then got six months ' training in the Normal Penmanship department and a year ' s experience teaching in your great institution. I then accepted a position with the Metropolitan Business College, Chicago, and had a very successful year. The work was heavy, and quite difficult but I had no trouble in performing my duties satisfactorily. During the past year I have been located in Chat- tanooga, having charge of the commercial department of the high school and am supervisor of penmanship in the grammer schools. I have been reelected for another year at a good increase in salary and will receive more than four times as much a month as when teaching in the public schools before entering the G. C. B. C. PROF. C. W. EDMONDSON Chattanooga, Tenn. OTTO W. MALMGBEN Huston-Churchill Company Irrigated Lands Idaho Falls, Idaho, Jan. 15, 1911. Prof. D. L. Musselman, Quincy, III. Dear Professor: It is now a little over two years since I left your school, and I feel that I must thank you and your faculty for what success I have had in the business world. In the several localities in which I have held positions in the middle west and inter-mountain regions, I find the business man well acquainted with the reputation of the old G. C. B. C, and when in need of trained business help, they always favor her graduates. The thorough training received in this school enables the graduates to come up to the high standard of excellence which the employer expects. The more business colleges I come in contact with the more I appreciate the excellence of our Ge_n City. My salary has been increased continually, and it is now 257 per cent of what I received in my first position. Thanking vou and vour faculty, I remain Yours very truly, OTTO W. MALMGREN. EVERY YEAR a large number of young people, who have attended other busi- ness colleges, enroll in the Gem City Business College for the purpose of better qualifying themselves for business life. They find our courses of study much more thorough and practical, and they also find that the prestige that comes to the graduate of the G. C. B. C. is of great value to them when in search of employ- ment. In the group picture we show the portraits of three young people who attended other business col- leges before entering the Gem City Business College. They had also had some experience in the busi- ness world before entering our school, and finding that it would be to their advantage to perfect themselves in the business and shorthand branches, thus fitting themselves for higher employment, they enrolled with us for post- graduate work. Miss Jetta Beeson made an ex- ceptionally good record in short- hand and typewriting. In fact she was the winner of a medal in one of the typewriting speed contests She is now pleasantly employed by the Rutledge Taylor Coal Com- pany of St. Louis, Missouri. She writes : I find my work very pleasant and am giving satisfaction to my . employers. T cannot sav too much for tjj merits of the G. C. B. C. Mr. J. B. Arnold has an excel- lent position as bookkeeper and stenographer with the Dowling Lumber Company, at Dowling Park, Florida. In a letter received from him recently he says: Before enrolling in the G. C. B. C. I was desirous of selecting the best school to attend in order to obtain the best results. After making numerous inquiries, I selected the G. C. B. 0. on the advice of some old students of the school. On beginning my work I found Students of Other Schools Mr. I. H. Brokaw had had considerable ex- perience in railroad work when he entered our school. After taking the Shorthand and Type- writing course, he wrote: I am leaving Quincy today for Bonaparte, Iowa, at which place I will resume work on Jan- uary first for the Rock Island Railroad. You will perhaps remember that before enrolling with your school last July, I came to Quincy and made a personal visit to the various departments of the school. My investigation developed the fact that no false claims were being made in order to secure prospective students : on the other hand I found that the printed mat- ter sent out by the college understated the merits of the school. After having been a student of the Gem City for a period of about six months, I wish to state that I have derived a great deal of benefit from the instruction received in the various departments. The results ob- tained have far exceeded my expectations. I consider the college to be first class throughout and strictly up-to-date in every department. LETTER FROM THE SOUTHLAND Port Arthur, Texas, March 11, 1911. Dear Prof. Musselman : It occurs to me that on the anniversary of my stay at this place it, woul d be a good time to write to the dear old G. C. B. C. Just a year ago today I began working in the insurance office of Mr. S. O. Latimer as stenographer, and owing to the thorough training I received at the Gem City Busi- ness College I have been able to hold my present place, and I feel that I fill it satisfactorily. There are some thirty-four or thirty-five insurance companies repre- sented in this office and my employer is also City Secretary, so we generally have enough to do to keep us out of mischief. Prof. Latham, whom you all know, I see every Sunday morning in the Sixth Street Methodist Church, where I attend Sunday School and chureh service. I have also met Miss Anna Rogers, a former Gem City student, who is now one of the teachers of shorthand at. the business college in this city. Yours truly, DELLA KAIGHEN. it very interesting on account of the systematic and thorough methods of instruction, and it became more and more interesting as the work advanced. Any needed help or suggestion was always promptly given by your willing and competent instructors. The inter- est manifested in behalf of each student may only be comprehended by those who have experienced the courses in the G. C. B. C. Mr. E A. Tar box has been promoted from the posi- tion of order clerk to that of superintendent with the Velie Carriage Co., of Moline, 111. Mr. O. J. Myers studied shorthand in the G. C. B. C, and this past year graduated from Missouri University. While taking this course he acted as stenographer for one of the professors. Group of Missouri Students, from a Photograph tak en March, 1910 A large number of students from our neighboring State of Missouri attend the Gem City Business College every year. QUINCY, with its educational and business interests, is so closely related to our sister state that she is frequently quoted as belonging to Missouri. The " Gem City " is separated from Missouri by the Mississippi river only, and is, in reality, at least forty or fifty miles farther west than St. Louis. Many of Quincy ' s best business men came from " good old Missouri, " and thousands of prosperous young business men of Missouri got their start at the GEM CITY BUSINESS COLLEGE, where they were " shown " the way to a successful business career. Cowden, 111., Feb. 25, 1911. Dear Professor Musselman : It affords me great pleasure to speak a good word for " Gem City. " I completed the banking and business course and about hal f of the shorthand and typewriting course. I left school at this time to take up a position with the Illinois Traction System, at Peoria, 111., which position I held till I decided to go back to the farm. While I was in school, I had several good positions offered to me by the faculty; but these I declined in order to stay in school longer. For those desiring a thorough commercial educa- tion, I heartily and sincerely recommend " Gem City " to them. I can not. speak too highly of the faculty and teachers of the G. C. 3. C, also of the courteous treat- ment that the students receive. Wishing ' u success in your work, I am Verv truly yours, R. F. F No. 1. W. R. DAVIS. 5Uk A GENERAL EDUCATION For Farmer, Mechanic, or Business Man The branches of the business and shorthand courses constitute in themselves a good gen- era! education, no matter what the student expects to do after leaving school. Many young men take our courses of study who do not intend to become bookkeepers or stenographers, but who expect to remain on the farm or in the shop after they have finished at the G. C. B. C. A large number of our former graduates are successfully engaged in farming, stock raising, manufacturing, and other occupations, and they owe their success largely to the education received at the Gem City. K. TIDEMANN COMPANY Cotton Ft. Worth, Texas, Jan. 19, 1911. Dear Prof. Musselman: I came to this city in September and secured a position with K. Tidemann Co., cotton brokers. I have no trouble whatever in discharging my duties and I attribute this to the thorough instruction received while a student in the Gem City Business College. I shall continue to recom- mend your school to anyone thinking of attending business college. Very truly yours, ' W. V. BUELTEMAN. Hannibal Courier-Post Hannibal, Mo., Jan. 31, 1911. Dear Prof. Musselman: I finished my course in the University of Missouri last spring and have since been with the Hannibal Courier-Post. I have just been promoted to the position of advertising manager at a good salary. Both as a student in the University of Missouri School of Journalism, and in my newspaper work since leaving school I attribute my success largely to the instruction received in your school. Not only has the shorthand and typewriting I learned at the Gem City Business College been valuable to me in my work, but the greatest thing of all is that it has put me in constant touch with persons who are doing things. J. B. POWELL. Mr. Zeno Barber is conducting a farm with great success, at Brazeau, Mo. Mr. D. J. Rapp is U. S. postoffice inspector, with headquarters at Boston, Mass. Mr. E. R.

Gentlemen: I have never regretted that I attended the Gem City Business College, although I have not desired to take up bookkeeping as a profession, yet I find the knowledge I obtained while in your excellent school very beneficial to me in my every day work. I am at present managing my father ' s large farm of 320 acres, but I find that it takes quite a little business judgment to manage a farm successfully. We try to follow the latest improved methods of agricul- ture, in breeding, feeding, and also in soil building. I could not ask to do any better than I am at present, and I shall always be glad to recommend the old school when an opportunity is presented. Very truly yours, C. P. POLAND. Mr. S. H. Wilson is with the American Thread Company, and is located at Minneapolis, Minnesota. Group Picture of Kansas and Iowa Students WE TAKE PRIDE in presenting the above group pictures of students from Kansas and Iowa. The number from these states is large each year, and it comprises an excellent class of young men and women. The above picture does not include all of the students in attendance from these states during the past year, but those only who were in attendance in March of 1910, A large number of young people from these states have attended the Gem City Business College during the past third of a century. Scores of whom are now successful business men and bankers, not only in their home states, but in other parts of the Union. We hope that many more young people from these r.vo great states may decide to secure a business or shorthand educti n in the Gem City Business College, and we assure them tint they srill meet with success as others from their states have done. Dubois, Wyoming, March 1, 1911. Dear Professor Musselman : After leaving your school I spent a short vacation at home. I then came west to Seattle, and after seeing the sights for a few weeks, I decided to take a civil service examina- tion to determine what I had learned at the old G. C. B. C. and the result is that I was the only one in the state of Washington that passed out of the fifteen who took the examination. I immediately received an appointment as forest clerk, requiring the knowledge of both bookkeeping and stenography. My salary is $1100 a year as a starter. I will ne :r fail to speak a good word for the old G. C. 3. ' ' . T -itati no experience whatever in either bookkeeping i shorthand before taking the civil ser- vice examination, but I have had no difficulty whatever with nv ,vork. Wis ' iing you continued success, I am -Sincerely yours. S. H. AXMEAR. Civil Service Examinations HAVE you ever wondered how the United States government secures the multitude of clerks needed to conduct its business affairs? Did you know that the majority of these clerks were selected by competitive examination? Did you know that for the year ending June 30th, 1910, 1482 young men and 367 young women passed their examinations and were appointed to positions? Did you know that the salaries of these young men and women range from $800 to $1800 per annum? The extract given below plainly shows the need of our government for well trained stenographers and bookkeepers. (Quincy Herald, Feb. 1. 1911.) UNCLE SAM NEEDS HELP Room Now for Small Army in Civil Service From the number of examinations ordered by the United States civil service commission, it seems that Uncle Sam has need for a small army of capable and efficient men and women in the various departments of the government service. Young men and young women who have to get out in the world and hustle for themselves will find con- genial places to start with. And as one gets more experience, more proficient and useful, the salary in- creases until the maximum amount is paid. But to get on Uncle Sam ' s payroll one must be able to fill the position he applies for and must fill it satisfactorily. Usually those who get fair marks on their examinations have very little trouble in giving entirely satisfactory service. A large number of young people from Quincy have obtained positions at Washington and other points in the past year or two and they like the service so well they expect to continue in it indefinitely. How- ever, it is not easy to get enough people who can fill Uncle Sam ' s requirements to keep filled the hundreds of places, so examinations are held at frequent intervals to obtain new material. Each year a large number of our students take and pass the civil service examinations — later receive appointments and become the employees of the United States. They are successful in their work, for they have been properly trained. We make a specialty of preparing young men and women for the civil service. GEO. A. SCHATTENBUEG Stenographer and Bookkeeper Civil Service UNITED STATES FOREST SERVICE Missoula, Mont., Jan. 10, 1911. Dear Professor Musselman : I came out here from Chicago several months ago, and accepted an appoint- ment to the U. S. forest service, at this place. I like the work and the country very much. The forest department is now getting to be quite an important, department to the U. S. government, and it is certainly interesting work. Very truly yours, GEORGE A. SCHATTENBURG. Mr. Arthur Hageman, of Quincy, Illinois, recently took the government examination for stenographer and typewriter, and a short time ago was notified that he had passed and been appointed to a position at East St. Louis. He has taken up his work and is doing nicely. Philadelphia, Pa., Jane 14, 1911. Dear Prof. Musselman : Some time ago you very kindly recommended me to a position in the Cherokee (la.) High School. I have just received a letter from the principal, Mr. L. H. Mans, stating- that I have been elected to take charge of the commercial work. A number of other positions were open to me, but I feel that this one was the best. I find that as my experience with business schools increases, the Gem City Business College has a national reputation not enjoyed by any other business college. It is a pleasure for a Gem City student to use his influence in directing others to the institution that lias helped so many young people to secure honest remuner- ative employment. A business college, that places its educational ideas high, and then maintains them, is far above the average. Thanking you for your generous assistance, I remain Very truly yours, ■ - ; A. S. GILL. Mr. O. I . Calvin is making three thousand dollars a year as traveling salesman for Ullman Company of Chicago; Miss Eva Schweitzer is teaching in the Drake Busi- ness College, at Jersey City, New Jersey. Mr. C. D. Miller writes that he is very successful at Mullan, Idaho. He is interested in a number of mining properties, and is secretary and treasurer for several companies, and also is interested in a mercan- tile company established at that place.

After completing my course I took a position in Peoria at an advance of $25 a month above what I had received before. This speaks well for the profitable side of the school, and as for the pleasurable side I can say that I never enjoyed a winter more than I did the one spent in Quincy. I can heartily endorse the thoroughness of your school, the efficiency of the instructors, and the splendid moral atmosphere which surrounds the student in your school. May a continued and an enlarged school be your portion. - Respectfully, H. E. SPANGL3R Mr. E. W. Beimfohr is head accountant and office manager of the Johnston Transfer Company, Aberdeen, Washington, at a salary of $150 a month. 42 Penmanship Gold Medal Contest THE importance of good penmanship in business cannot be over estimated. Our students are given special attention in penmanship under the guidance of ex- perienced teachers, and much enthusiasm is shown by them in this part of the course. For a number of years past handsome gold medals have been offered by the management to those excelling in penmanship. Last fall an interesting contest between the Introduc- tory Bookkeeping and the Advanced Book- keeping departments was held. The contest extended over a period of several months, closing December 14th, with very satisfactory results. At the close of the contest three medals were awarded in each department, as follows: A gold medal to the best penman. A gold medal to the lady and another to the gentle- man making the greatest improvement in writing during the contest. A group picture of these medal winners is shown on the ooposite page and may be iden- tified by the following key: Advance! Bookkeeping Department — Best Penmanship A. A. Gregory No. 2 -„ . T ' I Bessie Huher No. 5 Best Improvement J H. E. Zimmerman No. 1 Introductory Department — ■ Best Penmanship... Upton Giles No. 3 Best Improvement $ lia Mansfield No. 6 I Henry Hoowell No. 4 Spelling Contest FOR a number of years past there has been much friendly rivalry between the Shorthand department and the Business department of the G. C. B. C. on the subject of spelling. A handsome banner has been presented by the school, to be contested for each year— the winner holding the banner and being entitle! to the championship honors until the following year, when it is again contested for. Each department has its own preliminary contest for the purpose of select- ing ten of the best spellers to represent it, and it is considered a great honor to make the spelling team. When the teams are selected and properly drilled, the entire school is called together and the team missing the fewest words during a period of two hours is awarded the cham- pionship banner. Although the contest this year was remark- ably close, the shorthand team won, and hence is entitled to the banner until next fall. A group picture of the winning team is shown on the opposite page. The following key will enable the different contestants to be identified: Back Row Left to Right — 1, A. M. Rinaman: 3, C. M. Rash; V. A. Penn; 6, H. E. Belden.

A Group of Public School Teachers in Attendance at Gem City Business College, January 30, 1911 s PAY OF PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS TATE SUPERINTENDENT BLAIR has given out some figures regarding the compensation of teachers in Illinois. The. average pay for male teachers in ungraded schools is $47.47 per month, while the women receive an average of $39.62 in the ungraded schools. However, adds the Burlington Hawk-Eye, this showing is neither just nor true. The school vear ranges from seven to ten months. But the teacher draws pay only for the time when school is open. However, he or she has to subsist during the vacation time which may be as much as five months in the year. The average for women teachers in the ungraded schools is probably but very little over $300 per annum, or about $25 per month, upon which they have to live and dress themselves and take in teachers ' conventions and keep up on educational progress, read and pay for educational journals and pay fees of various sorts. There is a summer school of some two weeks which again calls for extra expenditures. It is a wonder that there are teachers to be found for many of these schools. And the teachers who do good work under these conditions are surely worthy of the highest respect. Public school teachers are each year appreciating the advantages gained by taking a commercial education, preparing them either for commercial work or for commercial teaching in high schools and business colleges. In this way they are enabled to double and in many cases to quadruple the salaries they formerly received. PREPARE FOR COMMERCIAL TEACHING MORE THAN three hundred business colleges, normal s " chools, high schools, and commercial departments have called upon us during the past year for commercial teachers. Hundreds of our students are now teaching the commercial branches in schools and colleges throughout the country. Every student who has prepared for commercial teaching in the Gem City Business College has secured a satisfactory position. At all times we have had more applications from other schools for teachers than we could fill. In preparing for commercial teaching, one should take either the penmanship and bookkeeping combination course or the shorthand and bookkeeping combination, because the majority of the calls for teachers are for one or the other of these combinations. We also have a great many calls for those who can teach shorthand only. Usually when a school asks for a teacher of bookkeeping branches, it also desires one who can teach penmanship as well. Any one who completes either of the above described courses, is thoroughly prepared for high-grade commercial teaching, as well as for any office work. Salaries range from $60 to $100 a month at the start. Successful Teachers Miss Opal Burton has charge of the short- hand and typewriting department of the Ottumwa, Iowa, Business College. In a letter dated Feb. 26, 1911, she says: I am. glad to add a few words of testimony regard- ing your excellent school. I am teaching shorthand with excellent success, and I shall always think of the days spent in the dear old G. C. B. C. as the most profitable of my lifb. Mr. L. R. Hanks is pleasantly located in the city of Atchison, Kansas, serving as head of the. commercial department of the Atchison High School. He states: It is needless to say that I shall always hold a warm regard for the good old G. C. E. C. and its faculty who always extended to me tlK.r assistance with true courtesy and efficiency. Miss Grace Williams is one of our Roll of Honor graduates, who completed both the business and shorthand courses. After gradua- tion we secured a position for her as a commercial teacher in the High School at Hiawatha, Kansas. We have just received, a letter from her stating that she has closed a contract with the Gray ' s Harbor Business College at Aberdeen, Washington, at an increase of $15 a month in her salary. Benjamin H. Holland completed a course of study in the Gem City Business College about two years ago and is at present teaching ace " Wiluam ' s shorthand in the Massey Business College at Columbus, Ga. He states: I have never regretted taking the course in stenog- raphy in your school, which I consider stands without a peer. My work in the South has been very pleasant and I enjoy it greatly. Miss Mata N. Calhoun is located in St. Louis and has been in commercial work since leaving the Gem City. In a recent letter she states : I am at present teaching in the shorthand depart- ment of Brown ' s Business College. I often think of the G. C. B. C. and wish for it the best of success. Mr. E. E. Snyder is also engaged in com- mercial teaching at Nora Springs, Iowa, where he has built up an excellent school. He writes : I found the school here in a very run-down condi- tion and felt like taking the first train out of town, but I made up my mind to bring about a change. I went to work and took the boys and girls into my confidence, and together we have built up a fine school, well equipped in every particular. I had sixty-three students in my department this winter. The Board has re-elected me for the coming year, at a salary of $100 per month. Before I attended your school I taught school in Kansas at $40 a month. I have nothing to say against public school teaching, but, fellow-teacher, why not spend a year at the G. C. B. C. and fit yourself for commercial work where you will be of still greater service to young men and women? Miss Nora White is engaged in teaching the commercial branches in a school at Columbus, Kansas. She writes: It giveu me great pleasure when I contemplate the wise choice I made in deciding to enter the Gem City Business College. Your school has the reputation of being the best in America, and its graduates are given a prestige that can be obtained in no other college today. I am commanding double the salary that I received before going to your school. C, B. Q. E. R. St. Louis, Mo., June 19, 1911. My dear Professor: I have now been with the C, B. Q. Railroad Company for about six years, and am employed as assistant chief clerk in the general freight office. I enjoy my work, and have an exxcellent place.

Extracts from their letters follow: Mr. G. W. Fairchild is holding an excellent position with Garrett and Company at Portis, Kansas. He writes : I can heartily recommend the G. C. B. C. as an institution of superior merit, and it is a pleasure to me to express the esteem in which I hold the college and its efficient in- structors. Miss Mabel E. McClain is stenog- rapher for Greenough Bros, at Spo- kane, Washington. She says: I have now been a stenographer for over six years, and have worked up to a position of which any girl would be proud. I was a graduate from the Combination Course in your school in 1905 and after working fifteen months in Quincy, I obtained my present po- sition which I have held for five years. I always recommend the Gem City to my friends. Its methods are up to date, its equipment is the best, and its teachers are experts in their line. I will always consider the day I decided to take up stenography and attend the Gem City as the luckiest day of my life. O. ' J. Somerville is with T. W. Bal- lew, lumber dealer, at Princeton, Mis- souri. He states: I am still getting along nicely with my work and have no difficulty whatever.

Their letter follows: Louisiana, Mo. Dear Professor Musselman : We are em- ployed by Stark Bros. Nurseries Orchards Company of this place, where we have been since the first of last January. Were it not for the thorough training re- ceived at the Gem City Business College we feel sure it would not be possible for us to hold our present positions. It will ever be a pleasure for us to recom- mend your school and its most efficient - teachers to any and all. Mr. R. C. Davidson writes: I am at present working for the Security Flour Mills of Abilene, Kansas, and am get- tin? along nicely with my work. Miss Floy Kelley has an excellent position in railroad work, at Hanni- bal, Missouri. She says: No doubt you will be pleased to learn that I have been employed by the C, B. Q. R. R. Co. of this city.

Gem City Business College, Quincy, Illinois. Dear Prof. Musselman: For the benefit of those who are trying to decide on a school in which to take a business course, I will say that the Gem City Business College is the one to select. I left the section work where I was getting $1.25 a day and entered the Gem City Business College. When I left I accepted a position as bookkeeper and assistant cashier in the Shannon County Bank. I am now assistant bookkeeper for the Bunker- Culler Lumber Company of this place. While I was attending your school I thought that the hardest thing would be to get a position, but I found this was not the case, as I was recommended to a position the next day after I left the G. C. B. C. I have been offered several good positions since that time, but am well satisfied with my present work. It seems that there is always a good position await- ing a Gem City stude .it.

MINER, Editor The Great Gem City Business College at Quincy, 111., Stands in the Front Rank Among All Like Institutions in the World. OF NONE of her institutions of learning can the United States of America be more proud than of her commercial colleges and none of the thousands of these, located in every one of our states from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean, from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico, can she be more justly proud than of the great Gem City Business College, located at Quincy, 111. North America was primarily and is essen- tially the home of business education. In no other country of the earth has commercial education taken such strides, or attained to such proportions in educational interests, as in the United States. And yet, only fifty years ago, the business school, as such, or the commercial department in coll ?es, universities and public schools was an unknown factor in even our work of educating the young. But as America began taking her place in the front rank of the commercial nations of the world she recognized the necessity for specially educating her soldiers for the battle for business, and about half a century ago there began springing up, here and there in different parts of the country, small schools whose proprietors and projectors declared themselves prepared to educate young men for commercial life. The beginnings of these " schools " were, however, always very modest — they never occupying at the start more than one room, and usually a small one at that, in or near the commercial district of a large city. Business men looked upon them with anything but favor, at first sneeringly, and later only with feelings of toleration, as the schools ' outputs began to prove their value. The writer of this article can very vividly remember the time (and this is only thirty-six years ago) when he was one of the assistant bookkeepers in a large department store in Kansas City (having himself been " practically " trained by a gray-haired bookkeeper of the old school) and when we of the bookkeeping force would sneer loud and long if we needed extra help and it was merely suggested by somebody that we try one from Spalding ' s " commercial college, " an institution which had opened its doors only a few years before in that city. But these brave pioneers of business edu- cation have held their own, until today the sneer of the business men for the college graduate has not only disappeared and toler- ance has long since taken its place, but this has in its turn ripened into admiration and perfect trust as the well-prepared product of the well-equipped commercial school has gone out into the business world and has proven himself not only capable and desirable, but indispensable. And where fifty years ago the commercial school graduate was positively an unknown quantity in supplying the needs of business men for trained office help, it is safe to say that today at least ninety-five per cent of the raw material finding its way into the business offices of this country comes direct from the once despised commercial college. Among the earliest of these old-time com mercial school pioneers was D. L. Musselman. the well known founder of the great Gem City Business College, at Quincy, 111. Mr. Mussel- man started in the work, we believe as a teacher of penmanship in one of the first schools of the Bryant, Stratton Bell chain, first teaching for them at Springfield and later at Quincy, where in 1870, forty years ago, he, founded the wonderful institution for business education which has since borne his name. During the year that has just passed the college experienced the most successful in its history, with an enrollment of about 1400 students, and including in its list representa- tives from a majority of the states and terri- tories of the Union. At the head of this great institution of learning now stand D. L. Musselman, presi- dent; W. E. White, vice-president; V. G. Musselman, secretary. These three highly capable, earnest, and conscientious gentlemen are assisted in the successful conduct and up building of the Gem City Business College by a faculty composed of twenty-one experienced teachers — practical educators, each being espe- cially qualified for the department over which he or she presides — who devote their entire time to the school and to the interests of its students. It must not be supposed for a moment that the Gem City Business College relies for its support, or even draws to any considerable degree its patronage, from Quincy, the com- paratively small city in which it is located. Very few, indeed, of its students are natives, or permanent citizens of the town — the college, with its world-wide reputation for good work, drawing its pupils to it every year not only from almost every state of the Union, but from almost every country of the civilized globe. The Gem City Business College is also well known as a graduating school for teachers, as well as for pupils. Upon the occasion of a recent visit to the college by the editor of the World we were shown by Mr. Musselman a great stack of letters from teachers recently placed in positions as such by this college, thanking him for his care in preparing them for their positions and his subsequent kindness in placing them; another pile of letters from teachers desiring positions and changes, and another pile, no less in size, from many of the foremost school proprietors, managers, and principals, asking for competent help in their instruction departments. No less than fifty-nine public school teach- ers were in attendance at the G. C. B. C. in March, 1910, qualifying themselves in the vari- ous courses offered by the school. 4s 49 RAILWAY GROUP We present herewith a portrait of a num- ber of graduates of the Gem City Business College, who are now holding excellent posi- tions either in railroad work or as book- keepers. Mr. H. A. Schoene is with the Chicago, Burlington Quincy Railway Company, at Sheridan, Wyoming. He writes: I have been employed here with the C, B. Q. R. R. Co. for the last four years as clerk in the division superintendent ' s office. Mr. W. H. Berry, an ex-G. C. B. C. student is located at Billings, Montana. I often hear from him. Mr. William Shade is with the Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company at Le Grand, Oregon. In a letter from him, dated April 27, 1911, he says: I like my work fine as I am in the open air a part of the time checking, while the remainder of my time is spent at my desk getting out reports. I have an excellent position and am in line for promotion. Mr. Fred C. Fullen is holding a position with the Rock Island Railway Company at Eldon, Missouri. He writes: I am getting along fine in my work here, although I have to work pretty hard at times. I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for helping me to get this position. I can certainly recommend the Combina- tion Course to any young person wishing to better his condition in life. Mr. W. T. John, Jr., is in the employ of the Frisco R. R. System, at Chaffee, Mo, where he has made a great success. In a re- cent letter he states: lien WTJohn Wm Habel WFBamar-d SidncyMavo GLPlakn il tJacobs EJBrecht years I have held the position as chief accountant of the maintenance and way department at this point. I have full charge of all the accounts pertaining to our department for the State of Illinois. Sidney Mayo, one of our graduates of about sixteen years ago, is now cashier for the Direct Navigation Co., Houston, Texas. He recently wrote: I am happy to remember the dear old institution and its faculty and the excellent business training I received at their hands. I have been very successful in business, advancing from laborer to cashier of the above corporation. My firm operates a barge line from Houston to Galveston. G. L. Plahn is now holding a good position as bookkeeper and stenographer and cashier for the Baum Coal Company, Omaha, Nebr. He writes: Our offices are in the finest building in the city. The company has a very large business, both wholesale and retail. I am drawing a good salary and have no difficulty whatever in properly performing my work. Mr. A. L. Jacobs has held several positions since finishing his course at the Gem Cit j r Business College. In January he wrote from Chicago: I had no difficulty in getting located after my arrival here and I now have an excellent position with J. W. Butler Paper Company, as private secretary and stenographer for the sales manager. Mr. Moats, one of your old students, who took the position that I vacated with the Northern Express Company, is greatly pleased with it. Mr. F. J. Brecht is employed with the In- ternational Harvester Company of America as bookkeeper. He recently wrote: T am experiencing no difficulty in my work. T started in at 60 a month and have been advanced from time to time. Before accepting a position I was told that I would find the actual work of an office much different from college work, but after having considerable experience I have yet to see the work that T cannot handle. Since leaving your school I have been in railroad work most of the time. I am at present emploved by the St. L. S. F. Ry. Co., as chief clerk to the general foreman of bridges and buildings. My success in the business is largely due to the thorough training received under your instructors. Mr. Elmer McConnell writes from Mar- celine, Missouri: I have a pleasant position in this city as stenogra- pher in the division engineer ' s office of the A. T. S. F. Ry. Co. I like my work and I always recommend the Gem City Business College as the only business college, to any young person desiring a business educa- tion. Mr. William Habel graduated from our bookkeeping and also from the shorthand de- partment. He is at present located at Pierre, South Dakota, and is accountant in the office of the superintendent of the Pierre, Rapid City and Northwestern Railway, a division of the C. N. W. R. R. He writes: I have been employed by the Northwestern Railway for almost four years at different points in South Dakota in both stenographic and bookkeeping positions. My services have at all times been satisfactory. Con- sidering the number of graduates from other business colleges who have proved unsatisfactory in the same positions, I feel that I am to be congratulated on having chosen the G. C. B. C. Mr. W. F. Barnard graduated from our bookkeeping and shorthand department in 1904. We then recommended him to a posi- tion as stenographer in the office of the super- intendent of bridges and buildings, of the Wa- bash R. R. Co.. Springfield, 111. Six months later he was promoted to the office of the engineer, maintenance of way, at Decatur, as bill and voucher clerk, with an increase of $20 a month.

DAVID KINLEY Dean of the Graduate School and Director of the Department for Business and Public Administration, Univer- sity of Illinois Has the following to say regarding the great Quincy school, of Quincy as a city, and her people, in a. letter written to Judge Perry, Secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, which was published in all the Quincy daily papers: - I thank you for the very kind and hospitable re- ception which you and your friends gave me on Tues- day. I do not exaggerate when I say that the cor- diality of my reception and the enjoyment I got from my visit have not been exceeded in any trip that I have had the fortune to make. If you can conveniently do so, I would be glad to have you state in the Quincy papers my thanks for the cordiality of my reception, and my appreciation of my visit to your beautiful city. Certainly it ex- ceeded my expectations, not only in its size, but in the beauty of its location, the wisdom shown in your great park system, the extent of your industries, and ihe general appearance of thrift and good living it presents. You are not only great industrially, but educa- tionally. I got but a glimpse of Mr. Musselman ' s commercial college, but I saw enough to know that you have a great educational institution, as well as great industries in your city. Please extend my thanks and appreciation to Pres- ident Osborn and the other officers of the Chamber of Commerce. I appreciate the unceasing and kindly attention given me during my stay. With best wishes, I am, Cordially yours, DAVID KINLEY. Dr. Kinley has made a life study of schools. What he wrote to be published in the papers was very complimentary to this school, and if our school was not one of the greatest in the land, he could not afford to say what he did. His remarks also show that Quincv is an exceptionally beautiful city, with fine parks, and a fine class of citizens. Quincy is beauti- fully located on the high bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River, has excellent filtered water, has a fine sewer system, and is one of the most healthy cities in the world. Kansas City, Mo., May 6th, 1911. Dear Prof. Musselman : I am now with the Na- tional Bank of Commerce at this place and have been here since the first of the year. Previous to taking this position I was in a bank at my home town. I like the work at this place and I am getting along nicely. I expect to make this my home. Since coming to Kansas City I -have met a large number of Gem City students and they are all holding good posi- tions and speak well of the old school. I can recommend your school as being the best of its kind in America and it certainly has a wide acquaintance and a good reputation. I meet its gradu- ates everywhere I go. Very respectfully, S. B. SMITH. Sharp Berry Brothers FARM LOANS AND MUNICIPAL BONDS Carthage, 111. Dear Prof. Musselman: I am now employed by the real estate firm, Sharp Berry Bros. The owners of this business are also the principal men in the bank; in fact, our office is in the bank building. I enjoy the company of several other Gem City students who are employed in this city. They are: Misses Regena Cheese wright, Mamie Bess, and Mable Simpson. With kindest regards to the faculty and best wishes for the success of the Gem City, I am Yours sincerelv, MARGARET RUSSELL.

Guaranteeing Positions IT IS unfortunate for young, inexperienced people that there are a number of " fake " schools, calling themselves busi- ness colleges, who guarantee situations in order to secure patronage. Such schools promise situations to any one who will pay the required tuition fee. They care little for the character or standing of the student, or for his success. What they want is the money, and the student in the end " gets the experience. " The " guarantee " school has several methods by which to avoid its contract. One plan is to make the final examination so difficult that the student cannot pass the same, and thus failing in one of the requirements, he forfeits his right under the " guarantee " to be furnished with a position. The course of instruction he has received is so superficial that he cannot secure employ- ment on his merits, and having spent all his money, he goes home discouraged and dis- appointed, and as a rule, never makes another attempt to qualify himself for business life; thus hi-, time and his money are both thrown away. A school that " guarantees " situations is a good school to avoid: while, upon the other hand, a good school to attend is the one that guarantees to furnish facilities by which its students may secure a thorough and successful business or shorthand education. A good school also is one that, while it does not guarantee situations, is nevertheless constantly placing in good positions its worthy graduates. Mr. Cecil Ott is bookkeeper and stenographer for Manuel Vega Company, Chicago, 111. Mr. E. A. Welsh is employed as clerk and stenog- rapher in the Farmers ' National Bank of Inwood, Iowa. Mr. E. R. Rodriguez, a graduate from Old Mexico, is stenographer and Spanish translator for Montgomery Ward Co., Chicago, III. Entertainment for Students The Gem City Business College and its students are held in high esteem and regard by the citizens of Quincy. The churches and other social organizations of the city join in making the stay of our students in the Gem to the students. On the 15th, the German Methodist Church held a reception. On the 16th, the College held its Fortieth Annual Reunion. On the 17th oc- curred the annual Field Meet given by the Tri-Mu Bible Class of the First Baptist Church. This was a very enjoyable affair, the program consisting of a number of events, with the students of the introductory and advanced departments as rivals. On September 23d the Young Women ' s Christian Association held an entertainment, for the young ladies, and on September 30th the Presbyterian Church held its annual entertain- ment. On October 7th the Vermont Street Baptist City most enjoyable and interesting. As soon as the school had opened up this fall, a series of entertainments by the different organiza- tions was begun and continued until all had taken a turn in expressing their welcome and good wishes to our new students. The opening of school was the 6th of September. On the 8th, the Vermont Street M. E. Church enter- tained the students, giving an interesting program and a general social entertainment. On the 9th. the Christian Church entertained. On the 10th, the Young Men ' s Christian Association held its annual reception Church gave an interesting program and reception to the students, and on November 11th the St. Joseph ' s Young Men ' s Society of the St. Boniface Catholic Church entertained the students of that faith at their spacious gymnasium. COLLEGE LITERARY SOCIETY The Literary Society is organized and con- ducted by the students. The meetings are held weekly in the college Lecture Room. The programs consist of readings, music, debating, parliamentary practice, etc. STENOGRAPHER EARNS $30,000 IN ONE CASE Has Task, Lasting a Year, Required Him to Transcribe 17,000 Pages of Testimony San Francisco, Calif., Jan. 21, 1911. — The Superior Court ' s Official Shorthand Reporter, E. A. Girvin, has tendered his resignation to Judge Hunt and will go into business at Los Angeles with a capital of $30,000 which he earned in one year by transcribing testimony in the De la Veaga will contest. For 189 days, scattered from October, 1909, to November, 1910, Girvin took down page after page and volume after volume of testimony, given by nearly 100 witnesses in the contest for a $2,250,000 estate left by the late Marie De la Veaga. The case is now being argued before Judge Coffey, in whose court it was first tried, and a transcript will be required for the appeal that is certain, no matter how the case is decided. Girvin ' s record covers 17,000 pages and ranks with that of the Thaw ease as one of the bulkiest ever transcribed. He will be paid by the loser at a rate fixed by law. Judge Hunt will appoint Girvin ' s son to succeed him. The above is a paragraph clipped from one of the daily papers showing what it is possible to do with shorthand. There is no better course for a young man or a young woman to take than the shorthand course, and the chances for future advancement and prosperity were never so great as at the present time. There is practically no limit to what a person who is thoroughly prepared can do with shorthand. The Trenton Mohawk Company TRENTON, MO. Dear Professor Musselman : Same time ago I wrote you in regard to my advancement in railroad offices. I am still holding the same place that I had at that time and expect to have for some time to come. I am just now getting through the monthly rush of business that occurs at the first of each month. I have certainly grown out of the line of work- that I had expected to follow when I left the Gem City Business College in 1905. I am now chief clerk over a territory of about five hundred and eighty-five m iles — nine division points with three hundred and thirtv lines. In my office I have one stenographer, a time keeper, an assistant chief clerk, a file clerk, a car clerk, a storekeeper and several foremen. Mr. Lloyd Austin, who was with you two or three years ago, is now traveling salesman for a wholesale firm at this place. • I frequently hear of young people from Grundy County who have gone to your school. I always enjoy looking over your catalog. Very truly yours, C. C. CLINE, Chief Clerk. BANKING WE HAVE four banks in operation in our Actual Business and Banking department. These banks are organ- ized as National Banks, and the system of bank work is the same as is in use in the modern bank, embracing transactions in receiving deposits and paying checks; dis- counting and receiving notes for collection; dealing in U. S. bonds and bank stocks, besides other securities; loaning money; making remit- tances to correspondents and selling exchange on such deposits: issuing time and demand certificates of deposit, etc. Each student banker has had experience in the retail merchandising business of the Actual Business department, thus insuring the best possible material for this most important work. The student serves as collection clerk, keeping the collection register, draft register, and stock transfer book; he is then promoted to discount clerk, when he has charge of the discount register and depositors ' ledger. The next and final work is as cashier, where his ability as executive officer of the bank is thoroughly tested. Here he has charge of the teller ' s cash register and daily statement, be- sides being personally responsible for the other clerks ' work and the general manage- ment of the bank. The books are balanced each night, when the results of each clerk ' s books are carried into the cashier ' s books and the entire system of book work must tally and balance. The pass books of the depositors are written up at the end of each week. Mr. T. S. Deere is cashier of the Novinger (Mo.) Bank. Miss Ethel Cross has a position with the Macomb (111.) Sewer Pipe Company. Eugene M. Brown is now holding a position as head bookkeeper for the Henderson-Morris Produce Co., with headquarters at Monroe City, Mo. CECIL R. HOPKINS Head Bookkeeper Rawlins, Wyoming, Jan. 28, 1911. Dear old G. C. B. C. faculty and students: On the 20th of November a year ago I arrived in Rawlins, and immediately took a stenographic position with the dis- trict foreman of the Union Pacific Railroad. After holding this position six months, I took a vaca- tion trip and then returned to take up my present position as head bookkeeper and office manager of the Knox Tanner Saddlery Company. I never realized how dear the G. C. B. C. was to me until that morning in the school room when I received the telegram an- nouncing that I had been accepted by the Union Pacific Railroad Company. Wishing the college and her students a continuance of the success they have experienced in past years, I am Sincerely vours, C. R. HOPKINS. NO CHEAP RATES QUITE frequently our correspondents ask us to quote them our " cheapest rates " of tuition; while others state that they prefer the Gem City Business College, but that they have had " better rates " offered them by other schools, and if we will make our rates of tuition the same, they will pat- ronize the Gem City Business College. We have but one reply to make to these inquiries: We have but one price for all, and that price is plainly printed in the College Catalogue, which is our official organ. The price of our scholarship is as low as can be charged, considering the high-class facilities offered by the college. If we were to cheapen the tuition we should be compelled to cheapen the facilities also, by employing less efficient teachers and by neglecting to keep up the equipment of the different departm ents to the present standard. These facilities and advantages are neces- sary in order that the student may make a success of his course in school as well as in business life; anything less would be a failure. No thoughtful young person will be misled by the promise of " cheap rates. " There is as much difference in schools as there is in horses, houses, or lands. If you want a cheap horse, you pav a cheap price and get what you nay for — a cheap animal. If you want a cheap business education, you pay a cheap price, and get that which is of little or no advantage to you. Your time and money are wasted, for business men are not asking for cheap graduates from a cheap college — they want only the very best, and the higher the standing of the school the better the chances for profitable employment and rapid promotion.

Since completing the Combination Course in Sep- tember, 1910, I have been employed in the University of Illinois. I find my work easy, and in every way more pleasant than school teaching.

They represent sev- eral different church organizations and interest themselves in the moral welfare of the students under their charge. Our students are not required by the college to attend church, but they are recommended to do so. The Y. M. C. A. occupies its own building, and a cordial welcome is extended to the stu- dents of the G. C. B. C. to attend their exer- cises and functions. Many of our students become members of the Y. M. C. A., and thereby secure the benefits of the gymnasium, bath, and other privileges that belong to the organization. The Y. W. C. A. also has a strong organi- zation in the city. All of our lady students are invited to become interested in this asso- ciation and its privileges. Nearly all of the churches of the city have excellent Sunday School classes with which our Students have become identified.

Professor D. L. Musselman, Quincy, Illinois. Dear Professor: As you will remember I came to Fort Wayne about a year ago to take up a position with Weil Bros., of this city. I worked for them for a time and later secured a better position with the Anthony Hotel. Speaking of Weil Bros., I wish to say that they think very highly of the G. C. B. C. students, and prefer them f j all others. When I informed Mr. Weil, Senior, that I was going to leave their firm, he made the remark that, ' ' When we do bring good stenogra- phers to Fort Wayne, some one else always gets them. ' ' This, I thought, spoke well both for the college and for myself. My work is very pleasant and . I have no difficulty in performing it to tne satisfaction of my employer. I shall always take an interest in your school, and recommend it to my friends. With regards to the faculty and yourself. I am Very truly yours, EDNA HAMMER. THE DIFFERENCE From a financial standpoint no education pays so well as a thorough business training. To complete a university course usually re- quires four vears ' time, and a cost of from $600 to $1000 a year. A full Combination Course at the G. C. B. C. may be completed in one year at an approximate cost of $340. At the lowest estimate the four years ' university course would cost $2400 A Combination Course compl-ted in one year would cost 340 Making a saving of three years in time, and in money $2060 The G. C. B. C. graduate can therefore work three years at a good salary be- fore the university student is through school. During this time he can earn at the lowest calculation $65 a month, or $2340 Thus making a gain over the professional student of $4400 In the meantime the G. C. B. C. student is well established in business with his salary constantly increasing; whereas the profes- sional student must work up a patronage that would require many months ' time, as a rule, before he is even earning a livelihood. UNIVERSITY COURSE A great many young men take the short- hand course before entering a university. The knowledge of shorthand enables them to study the university subjects to much better advan- tage, as they are enabled to take the lectures of the professors, and they frequently make considerable money by furnishing copies to other students, who are not so fortunate as to understand stenography. 56 ATHLETICS THE management of the school does not object to healthful sports that do not interfere with the regular duties of the student. Some of ' our most famous former athletes, both on the football and base- ball li elds are now successful business men in different parts of the world. During the past year we had one of the most successful football teams in our history. Our baseball team has also made an excellent record. We also had a good college band and col- lege orchestra, which played at the literary society and also at some of the games. We have been very fortunate in having a very fine set of boys on our teams throughout this year, and wherever we have played, the papers have commented favorably upon the deportment of our teams both on and off the field. On the opposite page will be found photo- graphs of this year ' s baseball and football teams and also of the band and orchestra.

Dear Professor Musselman : I desire to write you a letter expressive of my kindly feelings toward your school and your teachers, and I take this opportunity of writing you, although I can but feebly express my appreciation of your institution. At present I am acting as secretary and steno- grapher to (lie minority members of the Missouri House of Representatives. The work is not only re- munerative but it is also very pleasant. My compen- sation amounts to about $125 a month. With regard to your school 1 desire to say that your courses of instruction are not only thorough, but your years of experience in this branch of education has made clear to you just what the student needs, and you have therefore been able to eliminate many unnecessary and unimportant details in the daily work of the students, so that every minute of his work is of future benefit to him. This truth, together with the fact that your teachers take a personal interest in each student, makes your institution an ideal place to secure a business education. With best wishes I beg to remain, Very truly yours, ROY T. DAVIS, Stenographer. 58 EC DIPLOMAS Beautiful Diplomas Engraved at Great Expense for Graduates of this Institution THE diplomas contain a cut of the college building, vignette of Prof. Musselman, beautiful let- tering, drawing, and script work, together with spaces for the sig- natures of all members of the faculty, and a wreath surrounding the seal. The diploma is awarded free to all students who complete the Business Course, pass all the required exami- nations with grades of 80 per cent, and sustain a good moral character. A beautiful diploma is also granted without charge to all students com- pleting either the Shorthand and Typewriting Course or the Normal Penmanship Course. These students must also pass the required examina- tions, and bear a good moral char- acter. Certificates. Each student, upon graduation, also receives, in addition to the ' diploma, a beautiful certificate, which specifies the branches com- pleted and the student ' s qualifications. Those who must withdraw from school without completing the entire course, will also receive a certificate, stating the branches completed, quali- fications for business, etc. The College Diploma is issued when any full course has been completed, without regard to the time required to finish such course. Students of other schools and those who have studied at home, sometimes complete the course in three months ' time, for $35 tuition, and receive their graduating diploma the same as though they had paid for a Life Schol- arship. -i- | M0 i Kca (i y .

It is a great honor for a student to secure either of these degrees, as it shows to the business world that the holder is especially high-grade in his work. To obtain one of these degrees, the holder must do faithful and conscien- tious work of the required standard. A great many teachers from other schools take special work in our school in order to get a degree. Master of Accounts Degree This degree is conferred on all those in the business department making an average grade of 95% or better on the studies of our Business course. It represents the highest grade of pro- ficiency and is the greatest honor one can receive from the Gem City Busi- ness College. The names of. those making this degree are placed on our Roll of Honor for the y ar. Bachelor of Accounts Degree The Bachelor of Accounts degree is conferred on all those making an aver- age grade of 90% or better in the final examinations on all the subjects in the Business course. This degree is much coveted by our students, and a large per cent of them work for it. It shows that the student has clone con- scientious work much above the aver- age.

Los Estudiantes Hispano-Americanos en el Gem City Business College COMPRENDIENDO la idea que los padres de familia de las Naciones His- pano-Americanas tienen acerca de lo ventajoso que es para sus hijos al dedicarlos a la vida comercial el enviarlos por algun tiempo a nuestros colegios, y deseosos de ofrecer a estos estudiantes un lugar adecuado para su educa- cion; hemos dedicado especial atencion a los estudiantes extrangeros y ahora al publicar nuestro catalogo correspon- diente al periodo escolar de 1911 a 1912, no vacilamos en llamar la atencion de los padres de familia ofreciendo a sus ordenes nuestro colegio, pues estamos altamente satisfechos de los resultados que en estos ultimos afios hemos ob- tenido con los estudiantes Mexicanos. Con ellos hemos experimentado y es- tablecido con exito una clase espcial de Ingles, en que suministrandoles ejerci- cios de composicion y de lectura corre- gimos sus defectos de construccion y pronunciacion facilitandoles notable- mente de este modo el correcto apren- disaje de nuestro idioma. El Gem City Business College por mas de cuarenta afios ha marchado a la cabeza de los colegios comerciales de America, contando con un numeroso y experimentado cuerpo docente. Nues- tro edificio es espacioso, higienico y per- fectamente equipado y Quincy, la pob- lacion elegida para fundar nuestro col- egio ofrece al estudiante grandes garan- tias higienicas a la vez que los encantos de su natural belleza, sin brindarle con las innumerables deversiones que le ofrecen los grandes ciudades haciendole mas dificil el dedicarse por completo a sus tareas escolares. Ofrecemos al estudiante varios diferentes cursos a saber : EL CURSO COMERCIAL que comprende las asignaturas siguientes: Tene- duria de Libros, Aritmetica Comercial, Codigo de Comercio, Correspondencia Mer- cantil, Caligrafia y Gramatica, dedicando especial atencion a la ortografia. 1. Ignacio Flores Trevino, General Arteaga No. 106, Monterrey, N. L., Mexico, 2. Carlos Cabello Gonzalez, 2a. de Xicontencatl No. 9, Saltillo. Coah., Mexico 3. Edmundo R. Rodriguez, 2a. de Victoria, Saltillo, Coah., Mexico. 4. Fernando J. Garcia, 4a. de Hidalgo No. 2 ' •, Satillo, Coah., Mexico. 5. Alfonzo L. Butron, Iturbide No. 75, Chicontepec, Ver., Mexico. En este curso tenemos establecido el departamento de practica comercial y en el, el estudiante asienta en sus libros no las transacciones imaginarias de su libro de texto, sino las que el personalmente efectua ya descontando letras, ya comprando 6 vendiendo mercancias, obteniendo asi una exata idea de todas las operaciones comerciales. EL CURSO DE TAQUIGRAFIA comprende las asignaturas siguientes: Taquigrafia, Escritura en Maquina Gra- matica y Correspondencia Mercantil. Y EL CURSO DE CALIGRAFIA en que se estudia detenidamente todos los ramos de la caligrafia moderna. Al mismo tiempo que invitamps a los padres de familia a mandar sus hi- jos a nuestro colegio, creemos en nues- tro deber manifestarles que juzgamos conveniente no sean enviados hasta que tengan al menos diez y siete afios de edad, esto es cuando ya puedan hacerse cargo de su situacion, y comprender de la manera que deben obrar al encoii- trarse lejos de sus familias, puesaunque el colegio vigila la conducta de los estudiantes tanto en la escuela como fuera de ella, una triste experiencia nos hace ver que los jovenes que aiin no han alcanzado la mencionada edad mu- chas veces no atendienden nuestras ad- vertencias y adquieren habitos de ociosi- dad que les son perjudiciales en el porvenir. ASISTENCIA Y ALOJAMIENTO — Asistencia y alojamiento de buena calidad pueden obtenerse al precio de 5 a 7 pesos oro semanarios. COLEGIATURA — Por tres meses $35 oro y por doce meses $125. Los libros para el Curso Comercial importan 14 pesos y 5 los del Curso de Taquigrafia. Publicamos informes mas detallados acerca de nuestros cursos escolares y de los precios de colegiatura en la pagina quince de nuestro catalogo, y con el mayor gusto daremos toda clase deinformaciones sobre el particular.
