THE MUSSELMAN BRCTHERS
When D. L. Musselman, Sr. started the Gem
City Business College in 1870 he had a high ideal in
mind and built his institution upon honesty and
fair dealing. Because of the need of an institution
of this sort in the United States, together with the
fact that our students received the proper type of
training with efficient placement service upon the
completion of their work, the institution grew
rapidly until it soon dominated the commercial
training field of the Mississippi Valley. Its influence
reached out beyond the United States and extended
into India, Cuba, Mexico, and other countries. For
the past thirty years this institution has been
maintained by the three sons, and today is one of
the best known commercial schools in America.
In this booklet we are trying to give some idea of
the activities of the student body together with the
work which is being done by this institution. It 1S
so easy for anyone to paint a rosy picture and yet so
difficult to portray on paper actual facts as they
exist, that anyone wishing a correct perspective of
this great institution and the work that it is doing,
should either get in touch with former Gem City
students, or better yet, should plan to drive to
Quincy and see the institution and. talk. to the
members of the student body and interview the
various merchants of the community. These people
know the school and the work that it does.
D. L. Musselman is the president of the in-
stitution. He has had a long and successful civic
and business career. During the War, he was chair-
man of the Adams County Red Cross, and, at the
present time, he is treasurer of the.Woodland Home
for Orphans and F riendless. His past activities
include nine years as member of the Quincy Board
of Education, vice-president of the Chaddock Boys
School, trustee of Illinois Wesleyan University of
Bloomington, president of the National Commercial
Teachers' Association, vice-president of the Quincy
Chamber of Commerce, and for over twenty years
a director of a large national bank.
V. G. Musselman, the vice-president and treasurer
of the institution for a great many years has been
secretary of the Board of Trustees of Blessing
Hospital, of this city. He is also president of the
Woodland 'Cemetery Association, a cemetery donat-
ed to the city of Quincy by Governor Wood, of
Illinois, in 1831. He is secretary and treasurer of
the Quincy Board of Underwriters, and a director
in the Insurance Federation of Illinois. In addition
to this, he is a director of the Dads Association, of
the University of Illinois. He was formerly the
secretary of the Board of Directors of Quincy.
Y. M. C. A., and an officer and director of the
Quincy Chamber of Commerce, together with many
other civic activities. During the War, he had
charge of the business district in the Liberty Loan
and other War Drives.
Dr. T. E. Musselman, the secretary of the in-
stitution, is now a member of the Board of Trustees
of the Anna Brown Home for the Aged, a councillor
of the Inland Bird Banding Association, and, for a
number of years, was secretary of the Boy Scouts
Council. He received his Bachelor of Arts and
Master of Arts degrees from the University of
Illinois, and, in 1934, was honored with his Doctor
of Science degree by Carthage College. In 1919,
together with Dr. Bagley of Columbia University,
and Dr. Kelly, Professor of Psychology at Stanford
University, he founded the first chapter of the
national honorary educational fraternity, Kappa
Delta Pi. He was honored by being its first presi-
dent. He is a well-known platform lecturer, his
specialty being ornithology and nature subjects.
He is listed in "Who's Who in America".

COURSES OF STUDY. The college offers
several regular courses of study. The Business and
Accounting. Course, the Stenographic Course, the
Full Combination Course and the Short Combina-
gon Ciourse. Special courses may be arranged if
Our Commercial and Stenographic courses are
the resultof over sixty-six years of constant study
of business conditions. We have kept all of our
courses up to the highest standards in order to meet
the most exacting demands of the business public.
THE BUSINESS COURSE embraces book-
keeping, actual business practice, auditing, business
management, banking, commercial arithmetic,
rapid calculation, business law, penmanship, letter
writing, business English, spelling, the use of the
adding machine, ledger posting machine, training
on the Burroughs Bookkeeping machine, Burroughs
calculator and other office appliances. It usually
takes from six to nine months to complete the
THE WALTON COURSE OF HIGHER AC-
COUNTING. We offer the Walton course of
higher accounting, for those who wish to prepare as
cost accountants, for public accounting, and who
wish to take the C. P. A. examination. There is no
better course in advanced accounting than the
THE ST ENOGRAPHIC COURSE embraces
shorthand, typewriting, spelling, letter writing,
business English, punctuation, business writing,
manifolding, and the use of the Dictaphone, ad-
dressograph, mimeograph and other office devices.
It usually takes from six to nine months to com-
plete the Stenographic Course.
THE STENOTYPE. We offer a course in steno-
type. The stenotype is a small, neat machine,
weighing approximately five pounds. It is prac-
tically noiseless in operation. It has a keyboard of
English letters, somewhat similar to the type-
writer. It takes less time to learn than shorthand.
The notes are very easily read. A very high rate of
speed can be developed on the stenotype.
THE FULL COMBINATION COURSE em-
braces the subjects of arithmetic, business law,
bookkeeping, sections, IA, B, and C, actual business
practice, shorthand, typewriting, spell1ng,. letter
writing, business English, penmanship, 0 rapid cal-
culation, office dictation, the use of the mimeograph,
adding machine, and other modern appliances.
This course embraces all the subjects of the Business
Course, and also all those of the .Stenographic
Course. The special banking course in the Actual
Business Department is optional in th1s course.
The average time to complete the Full Combination
Course IS from one year to fourteen months.
. THE SHORT COMBINATION COURSE con-
sists of shorthand, typewriting, bookkeeping Csec-
tions A and BD, actual business practice, letter
writing, business English, spelling, rapid calcula-
tion, CArithmetic, section AD, penmanship and office
practice. This course is the same as the Full Com-
bination Course, except that commercial law,
section B in arithmetic, the business administration
classes and section C in bookkeeping are omitted.
The average time for completing the Short Com-
bination Course is from ten months to a year.
POST GRADUATE WORK. Many high school
graduates, teachers, and others who have taken
complete- or partial commercial courses in other
schools, arrange to do post-graduate and special
work. The student selects such subjects as may be
desired and carries them with the regular classes.
Tuition for special courses is determined by the
length of time devoted to school work. If all the
branches of a regular course are completed, a
diploma is issued provided ten weeks or more are
spent in the school.
CORRESPONDENCE COURSE. The College
does not offer a correspondence course because such
a course is impracticable. A student needs the per-
sonal instruction of practical teachers, and the in-
spiration derived from the class work which no mail
course can supply. Many prospective students
secure and study the Musselman text books, which
are thorough and complete. A knowledge of such
books shortens the stay of resident students. These
books are so detailed and easily understood that by
completing the work one secures a much better
knowledge of the subject than from the average
correspondence course and he is saved the in-
creased expense. The price list of our publications
will be sent you on request.
TUITION. Students entering under the term
tuition plan may pay their tuition for four weeks
or for a term of weeks. This gives them the privilege
of either confining their work to any one depart-
ment, or of taking any work they desire in the
EXTENSION OF TUITION. If it is necessary
for a student to be absent from school a week or
longer, the unexpired portion of his term of tuition
will be extended, should he return to school within
12h months from the date of his withdrawal from
THE PAYMENT OF TUITION. All tuition
is payable in advance, and students should come
provided with a suflicient amount to pay for tuition
and books, and also expenses for board and room
for a few weeks. The money you bring should be
made payable to your own order and in the form
of a bank draft, post office or express money order.
Do not put your draft in your trunk on your trip
to Quincy, but carry it with you, and when you
reach the college you can deposit it with the college
for safety--and convenience.

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
or 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
appreciate such action and reciprocate by giving
the student the best instruction possible.
THE LIFE SCHOLARSHIP is a certificate
entitling the student to unlimited instruction in
our school. One holding a Life Scholarship may
withdraw at any time before the course is com-
pleted, and return later for the purpose of finishing
the work. The holder of a Life Scholarship who has
graduated, also has the privilege of returning at
anyktime, without additional cost, to review his
Students having term tuition who wish to pur-
chase a Life Scholarship, may do so at any time.
In purchasing a Life Scholarship, no allowance is
made for the amount previously paid on term
TUITION NOT TRANSFERABLE. Tuition
certificates and life scholarships are not transferable,
and are redeemable only in case of death of the
holder of the certificate or scholarship in the early
part of his course, in which case term tuition is
retained, and any balance remaining is returned to
the parents: , ..,,
ATTENDANCE AND REPORTS. Students
are required..to' be regular and punctual in at-
tendance. A complete record is kept of each student,
showing his attendance, application, progress in
studies, branches pursued, studies completed, and
general deportment. This report is mailed to parents
or guardians each month.
It is a fact worthy of notice, that the health of
young people while attending this institution 1S
COEDUCATIONAL. Our school is patronized
by a superior class of young people. The young
women pursue the same courses as the young men
and are very successful as accountants, clerks, and
We do not accept negro students. C.
DEPORTMENT AND DISCIPLINE. We have
a very fine class of students in attendance. Prac-
tically all of them are here for business, and for
this reason very few students disregard the rules of
the school. We ask our students to deport them-
selves properly not only in school, but also out. of
school, and rarely is it necessary for us to discipline
any of them, and it is a rare case where it is neces-
sary for us to ask any student to withdraw from
school for misconduct.
CLASSES AND INDIVIDUAL WORK. In the
Business Department, the subjects of arithmet1C,
law, rapid calculation, business administration,
spelling, and letter writing are taught in regular
classes in the lecture room. Two classes are main-
tained in arithmetic. The subjects of bookkeeping
and writing are taught in the study rooms, much
of the instruction being individual. The actual
business practice and bankin is taken u after
the student is sufficiently advaiced to keep llfis own
books properly. The work is carried on in a large
department especially equipped for that purpose.
The instruction in this department is individual,
and the work is developed from the transactions
of the students with one another.
Examinations in the Business Department are
held at the end of each spring, summer, fall and
winter terms. Bookkeeping and spelling examina-
tions are held more frequently.
In the Stenographic Department there are
several classes in the principles of the system, graded
to suit the advancement of the different students.
A new class in shorthand is started each Tuesday.
After master1ng.the principles, the student is ad-
vanced 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 ad-
vanced or graduating class, where much office
practice andea great variety of other work is given.
Daily practice on the typewriter is required at
regular hours, a variety of practice, both plain work
and tabulating being given, so that on attaining
the required speed in shorthand, the student has
also become a rapid touch typist.
THOSE WHO HAVE NOT AT TENDED
school for several years need not hesitate to enroll
in our different courses. To these students, when
necessary, we give special attention and private
instruction. This personal assistance and review
enables them to later enter the regular classes and
carry the work with the other students.
SCHOOL SESSIONS. Morning session from
8:30 to 12:00. Afternoon session from 1:30 to 4:00
o'clock. The roll is called regularly twice a day.
Every student is expected to be present, at roll-
call, and to remain in school during both the
morning and afternoon sessions. No student is
excused from school to study in his room. It is also
necessary for the student to study in his room in the
evenings if he wishes to make the most rapid
progress. The building is open school days from
8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday morning with
teachers in charge. This allows those students who
wish to study before and after school hours to do so.
DIPLOMAS. Each student who completes all
of the branches of a regular course with satis-
factory grades is eligible to receive a diploma, pro-
vided ten weeks or more are spent in the school.
There is a stenographic diploma, a business diploma
and a diploma for those who complete the secre-
tarial or short combination course. For those com-
pleting the full combination course two diplomas
are issued, a business and a stenographic diploma.
BUSINESS DIPLOMAS. Three grades of
diplomas are awarded in the business course, the
regular diploma, for those who pass the examination
with grades averaging between eighty and ninety
per cent: the bachelor accounts diploma, and the
master accounts diploma, which are explained
BACHELOR OF ACCOUNTS DEGREE. Grad-
uates of the business department making an average

COMMERCIAL STUDENTS FROM OTHER
SCHOOLS. Many young people who have taken
commercial work in High Schools, Business Colleges,
or by correspondence, attend our school each year.
Some of these students come for the purpose of
completing courses partially finished elsewhere, or
with the idea of reviewing and perfecting work that
has previously been indifferently done. Having a
large number of graded shorthand classes, such

THE ACTUAL BUSINESS DEPARTMENT
presents an interesting and lively scene to visitors.
It is a veritable beehive of industry. Here the
students are conducting, on their own account and
with one another, the various lines of business
embraced in the course. Wholesale dealers are
filling orders from retail merchants. They, in turn,
are selling to their customers or learning of a better
market elsewhere, are shipping goods away to a
commission merchant, who sells them and returns
the proceeds. The transportation company is busy
receiving and delivering shipments to purchasers,
insurance agents are writing policies on property,
real estate dealers are making salesg bank tellers
are receiving deposits or paying checksg merchants
are borrowing money at the banks, 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 one time, each
student striving to make a success of his work. This
department is a miniature business world in itself.

THE WALTON COURSE
Time for completion from 14 to 18 months. p
The Walton Course in Higher Accounting IS one
of the best known of the Courses of Accounting.. It
has been adopted by a large number of the leading
universities and colleges of the country. The 'C6X'CS
and lectures have been developed and built .along
sound, practical and pedagogical lines presentlng to
the student such a course of study as will meet the
ever increasing needs and requirements of modern
business. The work is presented in an. interesting
manner and as the student learns the principles and
technique of accounting, he also developes the power
of analysis, reasoning and concentration.
In order to obtain the best results from any
course in Accoimting it is suggested that the student
be first thoroughly prepared in the pI'1I1C1D1eS, of
bookkeeping. We therefore advise the completion
of our Business Course before attempting the work
in Higher Accounting. , ,
Our Walton Course is divided into three sections.
1. Constructive Accounting

BOARD AND LODGING .
Quincy is not only a beautiful city but has ample
rooming and boarding facilities for the large number
of students attending Gem.C1ty Business College.
Students wishing good boarding and lodging with
private. families can get excellent accommodations
at reasonable rates. There are also a number of ex-
cellent restaurants and private boarding hourses.
LIGHT HOUSEKEEPING. Occasionally a
group of girls or boys or a young married couple
will ask for light housekeeping rooms. It is possible
to secure pleasant furnished rooms for students
wishing to board themselves.
The Young Women's Christian Association, 421
Jersey Street, offers centrally located rooms at
reasonable prices. After September 1, low priced
beds may be secured in a comfortable dormitory
Kitchen and laundry privileges for all roomers:
They do not serve meals.
The Gem City Business College is non-sectarian
but its teachers are religious men and women. They
represent several 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 encouraged to do so.
Studentsof. all denominations without regard to
church affiliations will find a warm welcome.
Practically all the church denominations are
represented in Quincy, including Baptist, Congre-
gational, Catholic, Christian, Christian Science,
Episcopal, Evangelical, Jewish, Lutheran, Metho-
dist, Presbyterian, Unitarian, and United Brethren.
Knights of Columbus-The beautiful building

ercises and functions. Many of our students become
members of the Y. M. C. A. and thereby secure
the benefits of the gymnasium, swimming pool and
other privileges that belong to the organization.

lMPoRTANcE oF coMMERclAl. SUBJECTS
TOO MUCH EMPHASIS cannot be placed
upon the value of commercial subjects as a general
education. The erroneous idea prevails among a
great many that only those who expect to become
bookkeepers need a commercial education. The
success of our graduates speaks for its value to
them as they pursue their many lines of endeavor.
Whether you are planning to follow the occupation
of Farming, Mercantile Business, Manufacturing,
Banking, or expect to take up one of the professions,
YOU NEED THE COMMERCIAL TRAINING,
including bookkeeping. To know that your books
are correctly kept, to be able to read and under-
stand the meaning of the accounts on your books,
to be able to assemble these accounts in a Financial
Statement of good form, all tend to give you a
better insight into your business. This deeper
insight insures greater financial success. Women
find this course of as much value as men do, and
each year more and more of them are taking the
business course with their stenographic training.
COMMERCIAL LAW. It is not our intention
to make lawyers of our students, although many
of them become so interested in our Commercial
Law that they later attend law schools, many of our
former students are now very successful attorneys.
This law course gives our students the essentials
of the laws used in business. Knowledge of this
subject is very essential to the young man or woman
who is expecting to go into business.
BUSINESS ORGANIZATION AND ADMIN-
ISTRATION: In this course, we discuss the or-
ganizing of a business, from its beginning, through
its various stages of growth into a going concern.
The operation of all departments is explained and
also their interlocking relationship. It is our in-
tention to acquaint the student with certain business
fundamentals necessary for organizing a business
and conducting it profitably, and to prepare the
student to enter the business world with an under-
standing of the underlying principles of Business.
THE SUBJECT OF MATHEMATICS is every-
where recognized as essential in the mental de-
velopment of young people. In many of our high
schools and colleges, arithmetic is not emphasized
in the course of study, and consequently when these
students come to us they find our training in
arithmetic absolutely essential. Even though they
may have had algebra and geometry they some-
times have difliculties with problems in fractions,
measurements, percentages, etc. In our. business
and full combination courses, commercial arith-
metic is given an important place. The work IS
subdivided into two sections, rapid calculation and
business arithmetic. Only those subjects are taught
that are directly useful in the business office or
factory, such as common and decimal fractions,
HIEQQOYS, graphs, profit and loss, interest, com-
missions, discounts, stocks and bonds, etc.
THE RAPID CALCULATION work is given
special attention, daily drills being held where
HCCUFHCY and speed are made of first importance.
Rapid addition drills, short methods of multiplica-
tion and .d1v1s1on, extending bank balances,
computing interest and discounts, short methods of
solving problems, trial balances, balance sheets,
banks daily statements, etc., are dwelt on until
each student becomes proficient in these valuable
PENMANSHIP. Too much stress cannot be
placed upon the importance of a good handwriting
for .business purposes. All the students of the
business department receive daily instruction in
penmanship from efficient teachers. There is no
extra charge for taking the subject of business
penmanship. Good penmen are given preference
over other applicants for positions.
THE SUBJECT OF LETTER WRITING AND
BUSINESS ENGLISH is an important part of our
business, stenographic and penmanship courses.
The student is taught the correct forms, and is
given many practice letters to write. Particular
attention is given to Sales and Collection letters
and other forms which are necessary in an up-to-
date office. The subjects of punctuation and correct
business English are taught in connection with
IN THE ACTUAL BUSINESS DEPART-
MENT the student has the opportunity to put into
practical use all of the above commercial subjects.
The student's daily transactions must check up
with the requirements of the department, and the
entries must be correctly entered and balanced
before continuing with they work on the following
day. This department is extremely interesting and
the students find the work very beneficial. A full
description of the Actual Business Department
will be found elsewhere in the catalog.
BOOKKEEPING MACHINES, ADDING MA-
CHINES AND CALCULATORS. While in the
Actual Business Department each student is re-
quired to take a short course of training in the use
of the Burroughs Bookkeeping Machine and the
Burroughs Calculator. In the daily course of his
business he becomes familiar with the latest type
of adding machines, check writer, protectograph,
and various other modern office devices. Those
who take the Banking Course have a good op-
portunity to become familiar with the Bank Posting

THIS DEPARTMENT of our school is devoted
exclusively to instruction in Shorthand, Type-
writing, Letter Writing, Spelling and allied subjects
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 court reporters, government employees,
and private secretaries, stenographic law clerks,
and as amanuenses in business houses.
Our arrangement of classes, together with the
corresponding methods of teaching, are the result
of years of close study, thus assuring the best re-
sults. At all times we have classes in each section
of the text-book together with four graded dictation
classes. If a student needs additional review in any
section of the work, there is always a proper class
in which he can receive this review Without affecting
or interrupting any other work he may be taking.
A THE BEST WAY TO LEARN SHORTHAND
is in the shorthand atmosphere of a shorthand
school, under the judicious direction of experienced
teachers who know just what difficulties the student
will encounter and how to overcome them.
THE GREGG SYSTEM OF SHORTHAN D
has been taught in our school for the past 35 years.
It meets every requirement for amanuensis work or
court reporting. It is the shortest, simplest, and the
most interesting system of shorthand to learn.
TYPEWRITERS. We have in our different de-
partments over 150 Underwood and Royal type-
writers. These typewriting machines are the
property of the college and the tuition that is paid
for the stenographic course includes the use of the
typewriters in the school. In addition to the regular
periods that are assigned for typewriting during the
school hours, the Stenographic students have the
privilege of using the machines for practice purposes
before and after school, as well as on Saturday
THE TOUCH SYSTEM OF TYPEWRITING
is taught. Over thirty years ago we saw the ad-
vantage of the typist's being able to type his work
without having to continually look from his notes
to the typewriter. We were one of the first schools
in the United States to introduce the system of
STENOTYPE. Machine Shorthand is simple,
fast, and easily learned. It is particularly efficient
for those who expect to do court or convention
OFFICE PRACTICE. Each student .of the
Stenographic department, before graduat1ng,. IS
given a thorough drill in office practice, taking
letters from dictation, getting out circular letters
on the mimeograph or other form of letter devices,
use of the dictaphone, filing carbon copies of letters,
and other details of regular office work, so that upon
completing the course the student is at once. com-
petent to take up the duties of an ofhce position.
SHORTHAND FOR WOMEN. No avenue of
employment for women is so fascinating, so certain
in its results, or so well compensated as that of
f'feH08THDher and typist. It has opened a field of
.abor more remunerative than ordinary vocations
1S lighter, less fatiguing and better adapted to them
than any other.
SHORTHAN D FOR MEN. There is a constant
demand for male. stenographers. Many large
firms and corporations make a practice of hiring
young men stenographers with the view of placing
them under a Department Head or Executive. In
this WHY the young- man becomes an understudy of
this executive and if he has the proper initiative is
allowed. to .assume some of the executive duties and
responsibilities. If he shows the proper ability, his
advancement 1S generally rapid. Many of the
Country's most prominent leaders started their
careers in this manner.
CIVIL SERVICE. Our Stenographic Course
qualifies our students for successfully passing both
the State .and -the National Civil Service Examina-
tions. Dictation and also typewriting copy from
recent examinations are given as a part of our
regular daily dictation courses. Prior to each
Civil. Service Examination we give an intensive
drill in special classes for those who wish to take
the examination. Our graduates are unusually
successful in passing the civil service examinations
and receiving appointments to government and
COMMERCIAL TEACHING. The demand for
commercial instruction has become so great that
each year a larger number of high schools are in-
troducing commercial courses in their curriculum.
The result is an increased demand for competent
commercial instructors. A proper academic back-
ground, together with the intensive training given
by Gem City will prepare one for successful high
school or business college teaching. We receive
many calls for instructors each year. Many college
graduates, who have been unable to obtain grade
or high school teaching positions, have come to Gem
City and after taking our preparation have been
placed in attractive places as teachers of High
School commercial work.
The elements of salesmanship should be under-
stood by everyone in business. These principles are
used by everyone, although many persons are
unaware of the fact. When one applies for a position,
his success in securing employment is largely the
result of his ability to sell his services. After he is
in a position, the holding of the job, and his ad-
vancement, are determined to a certain extent by
his success in selling to his superiors the idea that
he is more capable than those around him.
This knowledge of salesmanship, together with
the ability to properly perform the duties of his
work, is carefully inculcated into the minds of
Gem City students. The student gets practical
training in the actual business department while
part of our work in business administration and
organization is devoted to this all-important sub-
ject, so that the student is better qualified for the
demands of business.

DANIEL W. BELL ELEVATED TO ONE OF
AMERICA'S DIFFICULT TASKS
When Daniel W. Bell decided to enroll in the
Gem City Business College in 1910 he had no idea
that one day .he would have one of the most im-
portant positions in the financial world of the
United States of America. Handicapped by lack
of fimds but possessing a great determination, he
secured a Job as porter in the Old Farmers' Hotel

He made an excellent record as a student and
when through with his course he took a Federa1CiVi1
Service examination which he passed with such
high grades that he received an appointment and
was assigned to the Treasury Department. Appl-e-
ciating his handicap because of his limited general
education, he took advantage of his spare time by
completing a course in law in one of the Universities
in the City of Washington while earning a Salary
as an employee in the Treasury Department.
It took him nine years to finish his college work
and during that time he was advanced until he
became Commissioner of the Departments of
Warrants and Disbursements. His appointment as
Director of the Budget does not come as a surprise
to his many friends, all of whom recognize his
His work has been very pleasing to Mr. Roosevelt
and Secretary Morgenthau, and he has been sum-
moned to the White House with increasing fre-
quency in recent months for long conferences with
the President. Those close to the president say he
has expressed amazement at Mr. Bell's aptitude in
understanding complicated treasury ledgers and in
grasping the intricacies of government finances
with their ten and eleven digit figures.
Bills and receipts totaling about S7,000,000,000
a year have crossed his desk at the Treasury De-
partment. That amounts to about S222 a second,
day and night, holidays included.
He has been with the Treasury Department
twenty-two years. In 1919 he began specializing on
foreign loan accounts learning to keep in his head
with amazing accuracy the figures of debtor nations.
Records conceivably could be stolen. Ledger
sheets could be copied. So the key figures of the
stabilization manipulations are not to be found on
paper. They are behind Mr. Bell's unlined brow,
for the sole use of President Roosevelt and Secre-
tary of the Treasury Henry A. Morganthau, Jr.
In a letter to Mr. Musselman, Mr. Bell writes
"The Civil Service offers a fine opportunity for
anynyoung man or woman with business training.
A -diligent student may reach a high state of pro-
ficiency during the period of his training, which IS
sometimes lost when he enters a commercial firm
where he may find that he is required to use only a
part of the knowledge he has gained in school. The

ANOTHER GEM CITY BOY WINS HIGH
HONORS IN CIVIL SERVICE
The following story recently published in the
Quincy Herald-Whig, again shows the results of
hard work and ability when coupled with Gem
City training. '
l Edward F. Bartelt, once a Quincy grocery de-
livery boy, was recently appointed commissioner of
accounting and deposits in the United States
treasury, and has been given by an executive order
the responsibility of supervising the accounting and
the disbursement of the S4,800,000,000 relief fund.
All payments made in this vast expenditure of
publ1c money must pass through his hands, and be
handled by the organization he is supervising.
EDWARD F. BARTELT
' Appointed Commissioner of Accounts and
Deposits of the United States
A message from Washington says that this is the
greatest accounting work that has ever been handled
by any single organization. The magnitude of the
task and the enormous expenditures that come
within his supervision is beyond the imagination.
alt is probable that no man, even Mr. Bartelt, can
.vision what this tremendous works relief fund
actually totals. f
I Romance of Opportunity
That a boy who was accustomed to think in
terms of dimes and nickels when he delivered
groceries for William Evers, from the old grocery
store at 604 Maine street, has grown to be a man
who must think in terms of millions is a romance
of American opportunity.
Mr. Bartelt is now setting up a central .control
office in Washington to handle the accounting and
the expenditure of that vast treasure that was
placed at the disposal of the president by congress.
He will also set up a regional accounting and dis-
bursing office in every state of .the union. It 1S
probable that the new organization will take over
many existing state and federal accounting. organi-
zations. Mr. Bartelt previous to his appointment
as commissioner was the assistant commissioner.
Teacher at G. C. B. C.
Born in Quincy he received his education here
and after being graduated from the Gem City Busi-
ness college he became a teacher there. He went
to Washington in 1917 to take a simple clerical
position. There, among thousands of other clerks
in the many departments of public activity, that
were working in the greater activities that the
World war brought on, it would appear that his
chances to become one of the most important de-
partment heads in the national government were
slight indeed. His ability raised him from the ranks,
like the courage of a simple soldier may elevate
h1m.to the command of an army. He received pro-
motion after promotion until he reached the high
position that he now occupies, a position unique in

IMANY NATIONAL CASH REGISTER OFFICIALS
RECEIVED TRAINING AT GEM CITY
National Cash Register Company
The most recent advancement is that of Mr.
Ray Todd, formerly of Bowen, Illinois.. A letter
just received from the editor of the N ational Cash
Register Factory News gives an extended article
containing the history of Ray Todd and reads in
part as follows:
"The announcement that R. E. Todd had been
appointed Executive Secretary, effective May 1,
was an especially welcome piece of news to the
many whose work has brought them into personal
contact with him during the seventeen years he has
been a member of our organization.
Mr. Todd started in the Employment Depart-
ment February 11, 1918, as a reserve stenographer,
and two weeks later was transferred to the Pur-
chasing Department. This was the year we entered
the World War, and on March 12, Mr. Todd en-
listed in the Signal Corps.
. February 24, 1919, he returned as a stenographer
in Mr. Hartman's office. March 16, the following
year, he was promoted to the Executive Office as a
stenographer and file clerk, and for the past several
years he has been secretary to Mr. Patterson.
Before interviewing Mr. Todd, we went to the
Employment Office and there in the files we found a
letter from the president of the Gem City Business
College, Quincy, Ill., under date of February l,
1918, from which we quote, as it reveals the qualifi-
cations upon which he has built, and which helps
to account for the steady advancement he has made
in our organization:
"I have a young man in my sch 1 b th
of R. E. Todd, of Bowen, Ill. Hecits a highesgggg
graduate nineteen years of age. He is no '
, w 1n th
hundred-word class and is above the ordinary if-I
every respect. He has a spelling and a letter writing
grade of 98. He is a well spoken young man and
makes a good appearance.
"He says that he has to take care of himself in
the world, and that it does not matter to. him where
he is located. I told him I would write you re-
garding his ability, and he said that he would be
pleased to come to Dayton and is ready to .leave
at a moments notice. I shall try to hold him in
school until I hear from you. I would like very
much to see you have him in your organization."
This letter, the existence of which was unknown
to Mr. Todd, not only emphasizes the qualifications
which have led to his success, but it is a fine ex-
ample of the kind of "pull" that the world likes to
give every young man who has what it takes to
Mr. Todd was born and raised on a farm near
Bowen, Ill. His father and mother still live on .a
farm near Plymouth, Ill., and Mr. Todd and his
family visit them at every opportunity. After
graduating from high school, he taught country
school for a year, and worked on the farm during
the spring and summer months.
Although he liked the country, he was anxious
to get into something where his progress would be
more rapid, so he took a course in shorthand, typing,
and business English, with the Gem City Business
College in Quincy, Ill. Four other men in our or-
ganization attended the same school, i. e., J. W.
Dozier, Manager Central Division, George D.
Whitefort, Secretary to L. H. Thompson, Vice-
president, Domestic Sales, Wm. Argast, Officeman,
Dayton Sales, and Chester Wright, Executive Office.
The Combination or Stenographic Courses
Have Proved Stepping Stones
The possibilities of a Gem City training have been
proved many times, but perhaps in no more striking
manner than in the case of the boys who have been
sent by us to the National Cash Register Company.
This organization is one of the outstanding manu-
facturing concerns of the United States. Located
at Dayton, its plant has been noted for its effi-
ciency and cleanliness. Controlling as it does the
greater part of the cash register business of the
country, it naturally has sales offices throughout
the entire United States.
A number.of years ago the company started the
plan of coming to Gem City for young men ste-
nographers to use as understudies to the depart-
mental managers. Occasionally these young men
are sent directly to branch offices.
Some thlffy .Years ago we received a call from the
company,.and in response we sent Mr. James Dozier
to the Chicago office. At that time no one dreamed
that UBS YOung man was destined to become the
manager .of the Central Division of this great

tnat her education was finished and that she could

Much to her d1smay,.she discovered that she was
unable to get a position and after she had made
several fruitless attempts, her father insisted on
her coming to Gem City, taking the full combina-

became a good stenographer bookkeeper.

The following letter from Mrs. Alice Retzlaff

GEM CITY ATHLETICS
We believe in athletics as a means of exercise and
recreation and encourage our boys and girls to
participate in athletic activities. We maintain
baseball and basket ball teams, and make it possible
for our students to participate in other athletic
activities throughout the town.
Our basket ball teams have always had the crowd
with them, because of their fine behavior and sports-
manship. Character is developed in sport and Gem
city prides itself on that quality in its teams.
Besides these organized sports, there are many
other opportunities for exercise in Quincy. The
YMCA has a very ine gymnasium and there are
indoor baseball, basket ball and volley ball leagues
which are open to our boys. The YMCA has a very
fine swimming pool. The water is kept sterile and
clean at all times, so that there is no chance for
infection of any sort. Competent life guards and
instructors are always available and the lad who
cannot swim can get instruction in swimming and
diving. Many boys who have never had the chance
to learn, have become expert swimmers while at-
tending Gem City.
In addition to this there is a fine pool in the
Western Catholic Union building which is available
to girls and where adequate instruction is given.
Then there is the Municipal Pool which is open to
the public during the summer months with com-
petent life guards and instructors in charge. There
has never been 'a drowning in the Municipal Pool.
This is a beautiful basin in one of the parks. There,
too, the water is kept sterile and free from con-
Those who wish golf, have the Municipal Golf
Course at their command. This is a regulation
nine hole course and is well maintained. There are
also free tennis courts throughout the city. These
are both clay and concrete. Each year there are
the city amateur tennis championships, which are
open to any one who is an amateur and residing in
the city. Gem City Students are eligible, if they
wish to enter.
For those girls who do not wish to play basket
ball, but who wish some athletic work, there is the
YWCA with its captain ball, volley ball and other
games. The YWCA has other club activities. which
are wholesome and which give the girl outside
interests. Many of these clubs have picnics and go
to our parks and creeks to cook meals and play
STUDENT PICNICS AND ACTIVITIES
Quincy has long been known as the city of parks.
Early in October, the College gives its annual picnic
to the students. This is generally held in South
Park, a beautiful spot with hills, valleys, and creeks.
Up among the century old oak trees are many
tennis courts. Down on the lowlands near the creek
are base ball diamonds, while on the hills to the far
side of the creek lie the municipal golf links. Games
are planned for every boy and girl so that there is
not a dull moment.
Quincy Bay, which extends along the base of the
Mississippi Bluff line changes from a boating and
fishing resort into one of the best skating rinks in
the Middle West as soon as the winter weather
appears. No matter what sport you may prefer
Quincy is admirably adapted to supply our students.

For the past several years, Gem City has been conducting a dramatic club, conducted along the lines
of The Little Theater. .
This past year we were very fortunate in having with us Miss Maxine Emerson of Carthage College,
a trained. dramatic critic, and Miss Jane F ifer of Quincy, a graduate of dramatics of Stephens College,
as our director. They produced several interesting and successful plays, which were exceedingly well
Dramatic club meetings were held on the first and third Monday evenings of each month, program
committees being selected at each meeting by the president to furnish entertainment at the next meeting.

point of land in Illinois, it embodies, as do few cities of this country, the
resources of a fertile agricultural territory, of a busy manufacturing
section and of a center of population served with transportation by river,
rail and road of concrete, all typical of the active, throbbing life of the
wide sweeping, prosperous prairie country. Because of this diversity of
economic resources lt is often referred to as the most representative cit
of the Great Mid-West.
