L. MUSSELMAN V. G. MUSSELMAN T. E. MUSSELMAN President VICE!-P1'eS1deI1t Secretary 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".

THE MUSSELMAN BUILDING The success of any useful instituti l' fi on ies, rst, in its leadership and, next, in its faculty and cigricuglgl and, last, in its building and equipment. The Musselman Building was erected expressly for the Gm Business College. Placed in the heart of the busines d t s 1S r1ct, where it is readily accessible to the busineSS calls of the commtmity, it is a commanding structure. The ceilings are unusually high, and there is ample ventilation and lighting. The structure has 21 fine heating system and a good elevator serv' Th ' n ice. ere IS ample space so that desks and aisles are not crowded, and the sanitary conditions are excellent.

The Business and Accounting. Course, the Stenographic Course, the Full Combination Course and the Short Combina- gon Ciourse. Special courses may be arranged if es1re . 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 Business Course. 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 Walton course. 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 various departments. 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 sc oo. 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.

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 wor . 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. 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' 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 proverbially good. 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 stenographers. : 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 below. BACHELOR OF ACCOUNTS DEGREE. Grad- uates of the business department making an average of 90 per cent receive a diploma conferring the degree of Bachelor of Accounts.

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 students can secure exactly the work needed to most rapidly perfect them as stenographers. WRITE TO US. When you have decided to come to our school please write to us and state the date you expect to arrive in Quincy. A WEEKLY ALLOWAN CES. Guardians desiring to make weekly allowances for their wards' ex- penses, may send money direct to us with the re- quest that any certain sum be paid to the student each week, and our cashier will see that the request is followed. . STUDENTS' DEPOSIT for expenses. The college has made provision for taking care of any amount of money a student may wish to bring for his general expenses. The college will place these funds on deposit and the students may draw from them as their needs require. This has proved a great convenience to students in the past and each year many take advantage of this privilege. WRITE FOR INFORMATION. If you wish further information concerning our courses write to President D. L. Musselman, who will be pleased to explain anything pertaining to the school. 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. Page Nine GEM Qmfgusmrss QoLu5erE.CQU1HQbC ILL.

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.

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. QUINCY CHURCHES 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 of the Knights of Columbus is only two blocks from the college where our students of the Catholic faith are welcome. The Y. M. C.

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 accomplishments. 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 letter writing. 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 Machine.

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 mornings. 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 touch typewriting. STENOTYPE. Machine Shorthand is simple, fast, and easily learned. It is particularly efficient for those who expect to do court or convention reporting. 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 state positions. 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. SALESMAN SHIP 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.

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 DANIEL w. BELL The new Director of the U S B d is a Gem City graduate. u get Page Eighteen and played some semi-pro baseball to h l ' expenses while attending this school. e p pay his 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 unusual ability. 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 as follows: "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 gOYeI'nment however, offers an opportunity to use th1S SDec1al knowledge and to advance in a selected field..

T 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 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 American affairs.

Page Nineteen GEM QLTYSUSINESS C'.QLl.EG'rE,QUlNQ5f' ILL . - IMANY NATIONAL CASH REGISTER OFFICIALS RECEIVED TRAINING AT GEM CITY RAY TODD Executive Secretary National Cash Register Company Dayton, Ohio 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 Page Twenty 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 get ahead. 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 to Advancement 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 organization. Mr. Dozier has been the. cause of many Gem City boys 1361112 employed in this great organization.

The position to be hlled by Miss Burnett is newly created, being made necessary by the increased responsibilities of the business offices of the college. During the past two years the management of the college endowment. amounting to 331,190,000 and including the super- vision of some 3000 acres of farm land and several pieces of city real estate now owned by the college has been centralized in the college offices. Miss Burnett is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Burnett of Carmi, Illinois and is a graduate of the McLeansboro Township High School.

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- tion course. She made an excellent student and became a good stenographer bookkeeper. In May 1934, Dr. H. B.

The following letter from Mrs. Alice Retzlaff Carlson, Mr. Bruner's former secretary and a Gem City girl is self-explanatory: "Dear Mr. Musselman, Since both Dr. Bruner and Miss Cole are in Europe, I have your letter of July 5 to Dr. Bruner.

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- tamination. 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 games. 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. Page Twentyffwe GEM Qirygusmizss QQLLEGLQUIHQM' ILL.

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 received. , 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. Programs consisted of solos, skits, readings and other talent secured by this committee. The producing of plays is a fine infiuence and develops personality and the ability to talk before a group, - The Orange and Black Shutter was so successful this year that it is our present intention to continue the organization this next year.
