I U l Q 'GEM CITY BUSINESS COLLEGE, QUINCY, ILLINOIS 3: , 5 GEM CITY HISTORY SHOWS SEVENTY-SEVEN' X YEARS OF PROGRESS D. L. MUSSELMAN, SR. Founder Back in 1869 there was no Gem City Business College: in fact, there were few places in the United States where an ambitious young man could obtain a sound, thorough business education. Because of this fact, in 1870 D. L. Musselman, Sr., decided to see what he could do to remedy the situation. As head of the commercial department of the English and German College of Quincy, Illinois, Mr. Musselman had had ample opportunity to observe the needs of those youths who desired to advance in the business world, and he believed that a school curriculum primarily practical and designed to meet the demands of business had a place in the educational scheme of the country. For this reason he founded the Gem City Business College. In the beginning Gem City was naturally small in size and limited in scope, but Mr. Musselman's aim was to give instruction of the highest quality rather than to offer a large number of courses. Those first students concentrated on bookkeeping, arithmetic, spelling, English, and penmanship. This last subject was given emphasis, and under the tutelage of Mr. Musselman many fine penmen were developed. In an era in which handwriting was the accepted meth- od of inscribing words on paper, Gem City book- keepers were in great demand. Mr. Musselman himself was qualified as one of the finest penmanship experts in the United States, and won many medals in state and national expositions, and in world fairs. As employers began to demand more Gem City graduates for their better positions, greater numbers of students crowded into the school, until in 1892 it became evident that the original quarters of the institution were inadequate and that much addi- tional classroom space was needed. As a result, during the next year the school moved into its present building, which had been designed and erected by Mr. Musselman especially for the school's needs. This same building, with its large airy rooms, has served many classes since that time. An honest foundation in those subjects needed in business was coupled with an excellent placement service. Many of the oldest companies in our coun- try have standing requests for interviews with Gem City graduates, and some businesses have been coming to the school for more than forty years for their new employees. This record of service to the youth of America can be equalled by few educa- tional institutions. Today's commercial education is far different. from that of 1870, but the integrity of the principles upon which it is based remains uniformly high. Students are given a thorough foundation for their business careers, and personal attention when they are qualified to take positions. Hence, employers depend upon the recommendations of the school, and students can be placed in that type of Work which they can perform in the most capable manner. Students at Gem City have never been limited to the immediate vicinity of Quincy. All forty-eight states of the union have been represented in the roll call of the school, as well as young men and women from India, Cuba, Mexico, and several other coun- tries. Thus, the influence of the school continues to expand all the time. Gem City Business College, during its first forty years was under the direction and personal attention of D. L. Musselman, Sr., and since that time has been supervised by his three sons, affectionately known to the student body as "Mr, D.L.," "Mr, V.G.," and "Mr. T.E." Following the death of the founder in 1910, these sons have striven to uphold the ideals he formulated and carried out from the beginning. Each change is carefully considered and is quickly adopted if it is seen to be to the advantage of students. But beyond all improvements, is that same aim-service to the youth of the country. :ss cou.EGE, QUWCY' 'LUN IN M CITY BUS EM CITY OFFICE SCENES AT G W I Mana father ff College three M D. L. tion.

D. L. Musselman is the president of the institu- tion. He has had a long and successful civic and business career. During the World War I, he was chairman of the Adams County Red Cross, and, at the present time, he is president of the Woodland Home for Orphans and F riendless.

The college offers several regular courses of study: The Business and Ac- counting course, the Stenographic course, the Full Combination course and the -Secretarial course. Special courses may be arranged if desired. Our courses are the product of over seventy-seven years of constant study of business conditions. We have kept all of our courses up to the highest stand- ards in order to meet the most exacting demands of the business public. . THE BUSINESS COURSE embraces bookkeep- ing, elementary accounting, actual business practice, auditing, business management, banking, commer- cial arithmetic, rapid calculation, business law, penmanship, letter writing, business English, spell- ing, 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 eight to ten 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. There is no better course in advanced accounting than the Walton course. THE STENOGRAPHIC COURSE embraces shorthand, typewriting, spelling, letter writing, business English, punctuation, filing, and the use of the dictaphone, addressograph, mimeograph and other office devices. It usually takes from eight to ten months to complete the Stenographic course. The Gregg system of shorthand is taught ex- clusively, as we have found this standard system to be easily mastered. It meets every requirement of the business office, civil service, or court reporting. THE STENOTYPE. We offer a course in steno- typy. The stenotype is a small, neat machine, weigh- ing approximately five pounds. It is practically noiseless in operation. It has a keyboard of English letters, somewhat similar to the typewriter and the notes are very easily read. A very high rate of speed can be developed on the stenotype making the course a practical one for those who wish to prepare for court reporting. E p THE FULL COMBINATION COURSE em- braces the subjects of arithmetic, business law, business organization, bookkeeping, sections A and B, actual business practice, shorthand, typewriting, spelling, letter writing, business English, penman- ship, rapid calculation, office dictation, the use of the mimeograph. filing. adding machine, and other modern office appliances. This course embraces all the subjects of the Business course, and also all those of the Stenographic course. The average time required to complete the Full Combination course is from fourteen to eighteen months. THE SECRETARIAL COURSE. Each year Gem City receives a great many calls for those who are more than just stenographers. The general require- ments are a knowledge of accounts, an excellent vocabulary, ability to spell correctly, stenographic speed, and accuracy in typing. For the person who can fill these requirements there is generally an opportunity of advancement both in salary and responsibility. , In order to enable the ambitious student to qualify for positions of this sort, we offer a course in secre- tarial training. This consists of a thorough drill in bookkeeping and elementary accounting, as it is highly essential that the secretary be able to handle the personal accounts of his employer as well as to read balance sheets and linancial statements. We then give thorough training in rapid calculation, which includes aliquots, short-cut methods, and rapid arithmetical computation. We follow this with the complete training in stenographic and typing work which is the fundamental requirement of all secretaries and confidential agents. When one has completed the secretarial course as given in the Gem City Business College, he is qualified to meet the most exacting requirements of any office. This course consists of the following: Bookkeeping-Section A, which includes nine sets of the bookkeeping and accounting text 5 actual business department, rapid calculation, penman- ship-daily drills in penmanship. Also the Steno- graphic course with full instruction in shorthand' typing, mimeographingg use of dictaphone, filing? business English 5 letter writing, punctuation g spell- ing' office practice and drills, to ether with trainin . f . g . S in the use of the various office machines. POSTGRADUATE WORK. Many high school graduates, teachers, and others who have taken complete or partial commercial courses in other schools, arrange to do postgraduate and special work. The students select such subjects as may be desired and carry 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 COURSES, The college does not offer correspondence courses. In our opin- ion, the student needs the personal instruction of practical teachers, and the inspiration derived from class work which no mail course can supply. Cor- respondence courses should only be attempted by those who can secure the necessary training in no other manner.

This gives them the privilege either of confining their work to any onedepart- ment, or of I 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 termlof tuition will be extended, should he return to -school within twelve months from the date of this withdrawal from school. THE PAYMENT OF TUITION. All tuition is payable in advance. THE LIFE SCHOLARSHIP is a certificate en- titling the student to 'unlimited instruction in our school. One holding a life scholarship may 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 who has graduated, also has the privilege of returning at any time, with- out additional cost, toreview his work. 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 IS NOT TRANSFERABLE and is not redeemable except in the case of death during the early part of a course. In this case, after the deduction of term tuition for the time attended,the balance is returned to the parents of the student. ATTENDANCE AND REPORTS. Students are required to be regular and punctual in attendance. 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. We serve a restricted clientele. CLASSES AND INDIVIDUAL WORK. In the Business department, the subjects of arithmetic, law, rapid calculation, business administration, spelling, and letter 'writing are taught in regular classes in the lecture room. The subjects of book- keeping and penmanship are taught in the study rooms, much of the instruction being on an in- dividual basis. The actual business practice and banking is taken up after the student is sufficiently advanced to keep his own books properly. The work is carried on in a large department especially equipped for that purpose. The instruction in this department is on an individual basis, 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 term. Bookkeeping and spelling examinations are held more frequently. ' .4.':. f . I, J. , In the Stenographic department a new classy is started in shorthand each Tuesday. We always have a number of classes on all sections of the textbook. After' mastering the principles, the student is ada vanced to the dictation classes, which are graded according to the speed at which the dictation is' given: 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 other work is given. Daily practice ,on the typewriter is required at regular periods for rapid mastery of keyboard con- trol. Special drills are provided which will develop the required skill and technique in the shortest pos- sible time. . THOSE WHO HAVE NOT ATTENDED 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 enter the regular classes later 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. STUDENTS MAY ENTER .ANY TIME. The classes are so arranged that a student may begin at any time and pursue the desired studieswithout interruption. New classes are started in Shorthand each Tuesday. Bookkeeping, being individual. in- struction, is continuous. 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' ad- vantages. New students enter the Gem City Business College every week. of the year. We are pleased to welcome new students whenever they find it con- venient to enter our school: . QUALIFICATIONS FOR ENTERING. We ad- vise a student to complete his high school course, if possible, before coming to the Gem City Business College. There are many positions where high school graduation is necessary. PERSONNEL ADVICE. One of the services of greatest value offered by this institution is the personnel advice. Trained observers watch the progress of the student, noting his particular quali- fications, skills and inhibitions. At the proper time in this work, these are carefully analyzed and the student is then advised as to the best type of work for him to follow. The student is then given con- tacts with this type of employment. - ' The personnel, placement and employment ser- vices offered by this institution are available to Gem City students and alumni at all times. 10 GEM CITY BUSINESS COLLEGE, QUINCY, ILLINOIS COMMERCIAL STUDENTS FROM OTHER SCHOOLS. Many young people who have taken commercal work in high schools, other business colleges, or by correspondence, attend our school each year. Some of these students come for the purpose of completing courses partially finished else- where, or with the idea of reviewing and perfecting their work. Having a large number of graded short- hand classes, such students can secure exactly the work needed to most rapidly perfect them as ste- nographers. WEEKLY ALLOWANCES. Guardians desiring to make weekly allowance for their wards' expenses, may send money direct to us with the request that any certain sum be paid to the student each week, and our cashier will see that the request is followed. STUDENTS' DEPOSITS for expenses. The col- lege has made provision for taking care of any amount of money students may Wish to bring for their general expenses. The college will place these funds on deposit and the students may draw from them as their needs require. ARRIVING IN QUINCY. Endeavor to reach Quincy on a business day. We do not keep the college office open on Saturday afternoon or on Sundays. If you should happen to arrive on Sunday, go to a hotel and come to the College office on Mon- day morning. WRITE TO US. When you have decided to come to our school please write to us and state the date you expectto arrive in Quincy. PLACEMENT DEPARTMENT The big problem facing every young man and woman is the planning for his future life. This problem is solved at Gem City by effective, efficient training followed by personal interviews and a well- organized placement service. Upon the completion of his course of training, the student interviews V. G. Musselman, manager of the placement de- partment of the school. In this interview the stu- dent's abilities, likes, and dislikes are carefully considered, as well as his qualifications for different types of employment. The particular part of the country and the size of the city or territory in which he wishes to work are then taken into consideration. After this analysis the student is given personal advice about the best method of obtaining a position. Mr. Musselman is constantly in contact with many of the employment managers of the largest organizations in the country, and is often able to place a student in exactly the firm in which he wishes to work. Many former "Gems" are now in executive positions throughout the United States, ..N ' -.-:gliz and they are ready to employ or aid graduates of Gem City. Accurate records are kept of all students, with special notes as to the individual abilities and apti- tudes of each. Through interviews and with the aid of these records, Mr. Musselman is able to place most satisfactorily the right person in the right job. Consequently, businessmen have confidence in his judgment, and accept his recommendations without question. Mr. Musselman makes frequent visits to the different industrial centers within a radius of three hundred miles of Quincy and interviews placement managers of the larger manufacturing firms and businesses in order to learn of any change in their requirements and to keep them informed concerning Gem City boys and girls who are available. Any person wishing further information concern- ing Gem City courses of instruction or the possi- bility of being placed in a desirable position should write D. L.

Everyone should know something of accounts, be able to read balance sheets, and make out personal income tax blanks. No business course would be complete without comprehensive training in journalizing, posting, and all of the business and bookkeeping forms in use today. A complete description of the bookkeeping and cost accounting and the higher accounting courses offered by this institution will be found in succeeding pages. 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 schoolsg many of our former students are now 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- ISTRAT ION: 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 and interlocking relationship of all departments are explained. It is our intention to acquaint the student with certain business funda- mentals necessary for organizing a business and conducting it profitably, and to prepare the student to. enter the business world with an understanding 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 students from these schools come to us they find our training in arithmetic absolutely essential. Even though they may have had algebra and geometry they sometimes have difficulties with problems in fractions, measurements, percentages, etc. In our Business and Full Combination courses, commercial arithmetic 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, aliquots, graphs, profit and loss, interest, commis- sions, discounts, stocks and bonds, etc. THE RAPID CALCULATION work is given special attention, daily drills being held in which accuracy and speed are given first importance. Rapid addition drills, short methods of multiplica- tion and division, extending bank balances, com- puting interest and discounts, short methods of solving problems are a part of the daily work. Social Security, wages, etc., are dwelt on until each student becomes proficient in these computations. PENMANSHIP. Too much stress cannot be placed upon the importance of good handwriting for business purposes. All the students of the business department receive daily instruction in penmanship from capable teachers. There is no extra charge for taking the subject of business penman- ship. Good penmen are given preference over other applicants for positions. THE SUBJECT OF BUSINESS ENGLISH AND LETTER WRITING is an important part of our Business and Stenographic 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. .DIPLOMAS DIPLOMAS. Each student who completes all of the branches of a regular course with satisfactory grades is eligible to receive a diploma, provided 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 Secretarial course. . BUSINESS DIPLOMAS. Three grades of di- plomas are awarded in the Business courseg the regular diploma, for those who pass the examinations with grades averaging between eighty and ninety per centg the Bachelor of Accounts diploma, and the llgflaster of Accounts diploma, which are explained e ow. BACHELOR OF ACCOUNTS DEGREE. Grad- uates of the Business department making an aver- age of at least ninety per cent receive a diploma conferring the degree of Bachelor of Accounts. MASTER OF ACCOUNTS DEGREE. The Master of Accounts degree is conferred on all grad- uates of the Business department making an aver- age grade of at least ninety-five per cent. This degree represents a high grade of proficiency, and is much coveted by ambitious students. The annual Roll of Honor is made up from those who receive this degree. HIGHER ACCOUNTING DIPLOMA. A di- ploma in higher accounting is granted to the student completing our higher accounting course. ' SECRETARLAL DIPLOMA Those students satisfactorily completing the re- quired course of instruction as outlined in the Secre- tarial course will receive our diploma showing the satisfactory completion of the Secretarial course. The student may have the option of receiving a Stenographic diploma provided he completes the work of the Stenographic department without en- tirely completing the Business section. V FULL COMBINATION DIPLOMAS Those students satisfactorily completing the re- quirements of the two departments will receive two diplomas, one from the Business department and one from the Stenographic department. CERTIFICATES. Those students wishing evi- dence of the completion of all or a part of the work are entitled to receive Certificates showing work successfully completed. These certificates are litho- graphed and are the size of the regular diploma. There is no charge to the student for the issuing of a certificate. :J ,..g3wf,,, DU, C 65 "',.,,., :EE--49,132 .-F Sir?-4z5',a53m'12ff45,:Q E33-- s'Z'-m,Q3m-5E?G fi ",."H4:, - . aw U 4 aw 2 Q P1 U aw Q Q o C: 2 E 2 cv af 2 U ab cm -A c: aw rf on cf EZ? 2 H CD ,Vi U FU 'U :P W A E m Z -1 U2 Cl wah, Dmgggsxiim QQ., ,fifopb H Fava 52532 QS UJLIJ 35590911 Q rn 3 C -I -4 C UI Z M cn um O O I- I- rn Q rn D c Z n 5 F F E 0 A cn Q O-wg-f-ff-+5-:rg-1-v-gg::'m-+0 z:-013-3-U-gfv G5 d 55H..:r 5 W H.

This is a laboratory course following the theory of bookkeeping and accounting. It is so planned that the student follows the theory with a practical application of the problems involved. In this class he makes the actual transactions with other students and then enters these business deals in his books and follows the mechanical transactions through to their completion. In this manner the student puts into actual practice the knowledge acquired from his textbooks and class instruction. After completing his sets of bookkeeping and this required work in the actual business class he is well qualified to fill the most exacting bookkeeping position. Instead of having the transactions written as a textbook, the student in the -Actual Business class makes his own business ,deals with the other students. . In this class the student learns the proper papers used in the various business transactions and the necessary steps for recording these transactions. He learns the procedure normally followed in sending goods by truck, express, parcel post and freight. He protects himself by buying insurance and he buys and -sells goods retail and wholesale. He is not only the proprietor and bookkeeper but the buyer and salesman as well. A record of all transactions made in this department is to be entered in the books. The student will buy and sell merchandise, make out invoices, notes, checks and all types of papers as they are used in the business world. He will make bank deposits, buy 'bank drafts and make other types of bank transactions. Trial balances will be taken at frequent intervals. At the close of the trading, the books will be closed, a work sheet, a profit and loss and balance sheet statements will be made. ACCOUNTS. As a result of the various .trans- actions the students' ledger 'should contain the following accounts: Customers and creditors, cash, notes receivable and payable, merchandising purchases, merchandise sales, purchases and sales discounts, other dis- counts, interest income, interest expense, general expense, accrued interest receivable and payable, trading, profit and loss, proprietor's capital and drawing accounts, together with other ledger head- ings that ordinarily occur in the course of an or- dinaryrun of business. I The student is the sole proprietor, buyer, salesman and bookkeeper. Business experience is acquired as he acts in these capacities. A AUDITING. On finishing the work of this class the student is given a thorough drill in auditing. He exchanges his books for those of a fellow student and is required to give them a detailed audit. After completing the audit, he makes a report, listing all the errors found and commenting on the general condition of the books. The instructor then lists the errors to be corrected as he inspects the books. When the errors are cor- rected the books are graded. The work in this class has been arranged so the student should complete the required work including the auditing and cor- rection of errors within ten weeks' time. This includes the one hour of class work each day, the time re- quired for the audit and correction, together with the time required for preliminary training in the use of the calculator. However this will be con- trolled to a great extent by the diligence and effort exerted by the individual student. BANK BOOKKEEPING MACHINE OPERA- TION. In this department it is necessary to main- tain a complete banking record of the students' accounts and their banking transactions. The de- positorfs ledgers are of the loose leaf type and are in conformity with those used in our larger and more modern banks. We have Burroughs Bank Book- keeping machines. Commercial bookkeeping machines. At the present time there is an increasing tendency towards ma- chine recording of accounts. The student not only should be familiar with the theory of bookkeeping and accounting but it is of the utmost importance that he is trained in the operation of the commercial bookkeeping machines. He should be able to under- stand all other types of modern mechanical equip- ment. Our students in this department have access to electrically driven adding machines and book- keeping machines. They are given acertain amount of training on calculating machines and are given instruction in the use of such machines as check writers, protectographs, numbering machines and other mechanical equipment ordinarily found in the modern business office or bank. I GENERAL MOTORS ACCOUNTING. The proper handling of garage and automobile sales accounting is complicated, so it is necessary for one to become familiar with the specialized sys- tems used by the large companies such as General Motors, Ford and Chrysler. For that reason, we are teaching General Motors accounting to those who wish to become proficient in this type of work. Anyone who understands the General Motors sys- tem is capable of handling either of the other two systems. Organizations selling cars distributed by any of the large companies, usually require an ac- countant who has been trained in motor accounting, so it is wise for those who wish to be proficient in bookkeeping or accounting to take our course in General Motors accounting.

GEM CITY BUSINESS COLLEGE, QUINCY, ILLINOIS , I'5 STENQGRAPI-nc DEPARTMENT THIS DEPARTMENT of our school is devoted exclusively to instruction in shorthand, typewriting, letter writing, spelling and allied subjects soas to enable its ,students to acquire in the shortest time possible, they 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 stenographers in business houses. Our arrangement of classes, with the correspond' ing methods of teaching, is the result of years of close study, thus assuring the best results. At all times we have classes in each section ofthe text- book and live graded dictation classes. If a student needs additional review in any section of the work ' there is always a .class in which he can receive this review without affecting or interrupting any other work he may be taking. I 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 SHORTHAND is taught in our school. . I TYPEWRITERS. We have over 125 Underwood and Royal typewriters in our different departments. These typewriting machines are the property of I the college and the tuition that is paid for the Stenographic ,course includes the use of the type- writers 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 morning. , . THE TOUCH SYSTEM OF TYPEWRITING is taught. 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 re- porting. ' OFFICE PRACTICE. Each student of the Steno- graphic department, before graduating, is given a thorough drill in office practice, taking letters from dictation, getting out circular letters onthe mimeo- graph or other forms of duplicating devices, Dicta- phone, filing carbon copies of letters, and other de- tails of regular office work. SHORT HAND FOR WOMEN. No avenue of employment for women is so fascinating, so certain of its results, or so well compensated as that of stenography. It has opened a field of labor more remunerative than ordinary vocations, and is lighter, less fatiguing and better adapted to .women than any other. ' SHORTHAND FOR MEN. There. is 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 the direction of a, department head or execu- tive. In this way the young man becomes an under- study of this 'executive and if he' has the proper initiative is allowed to assume some of the executive duties and responsibilities. If he shows ability and aptitude, his advancement is generally rapid. Many of - the country's most prominent leaders . started their careers in this-manner. j UNIVERSITY AND COLLEGE. Many young people find it advantageous ,to take a stenographic course before attendinga university or college. The p ability to take shorthand notes and to type outlines and themes is of great help to the student. A large number of schools require all themes to be typed. Many university and college students make nearly all their expenses typing themes for their fellow students. ' '- Students who can not attendcollege in any other way find the knowledge of stenography- makes it possible. Many of the colleges have part-time posi- tions in the college office for students, who need assistance. 2 I ' r ' f The majority of our students who accept civil service positions in Washington, D. C. also carry college courses. There are -six or eight different universities and colleges in Washington ,having afternoon and evening classes designed especially for government employees. -These courses .cover nearly every phase of educationg Q . CIVIL SERVICE. Our. -Stenographic course qualifies our students for successfully passing both the state and the federal civil service examinations. 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 un- usually successful in passing the civil service ex- aminations and receiving appointments to 'govern- ment and state positions. , COMMERCIAL TEACHING AND TEACH- ERS. Commercial courses in high schools and col- leges are demanding more experienced teachers as their departments expand. As a result many teachers Gem Cit durin the summer to are coming to y g receive special coaching or advanced work in this field. Other young college men and women are also rounding out a complete education by taking secre- tarial courses. With the ever-increasing demand for teachers is also coming a more rigid requirement for training in specialized courses. In particular, typing and shorthand teachers in 'high schools can take advantage of the training available to them at Gem City Business College.

The ls but Calho ldeniifi Over U GEM CITY.BUSINESS COLLEGE QUINCY,ILLINOIS If Quincy is a friendly city, built high upon the bluffs of the Mississippi. Citizens of the town are aware of the needs of youth and have established a number of centers of activity for healthful, whole- some recreation. Living conditions are good, and it is usually possible for students to obtain the type of board and lodging they prefer. Churches in Quincy embrace practically all de- nominations. Represented here are Assembly of God, Baptist, Catholic, Congregational, Christian, Christian Science, Episcopal, Evangelical, Jewish, Lutheran, Methodist, Presbyterian, Unitarian, and United Brethern. All of them welcome Gem City students and make particular efforts to interest students in church activities. Members of the faculty are always glad to introduce new students to members of any church group. Students are not required to attend church, but are encouraged ,to do so. ,,.,. , ,,., ,,,, ' . .. .

M. C. A. BUILDING Accomodations for Sixty Boys The Y.M.C.A. is housed in a large four-story building. It is modern, and has a spacious lobby with a men's lounge containing easy chairs and up-to-date reading material, where also will be found game tables for recreation. There is a modern gymnasium with an indoor running track, rowing machine, and handball and volleyball courts. In the basement are men's lockers and shower rooms, and a modern tiled swimming pool of standard size. Attached to this pool is a filtering system which is in constant operation and which keeps the water in a sanitary condition. On the upper floors are class and study rooms, and room accommodations for some sixty young men. The Y.M.C.A. maintains gymnasium classes and gives swimming instruction at all times of the year. Those young men who do not room at the Y.M.C.A. may avail themselves of the club privileges. Located at the Y.W.C.A. is a recreational center open to different groups of young people for or- ganized activities, and for "just plain good times." Classes and hours for college and young business- men and women are included in this program. On certain nights the building is reserved for their use. The beautiful building of the Knights of Columbus is but two blocks from the college. Students of the Catholic faith are always made welcome when they identify themselves. A park system, known for its naturalhbeauty all over the United States, adds to the enjoyment of living in Quincy. Situated on high limestone bluffs overlooking the Father of Waters, two parks north and south of town, offer a multitude of wooded ,spots and beautiful lawns for picnics and outdoor fun. In South Park is an excellent golf course, and in the other parks throughout the city are fine all-weather tennis courts. Indian Mounds pool is open to the public during the summer season and many stu- dents take advantage of this for swimming. Membership in civic organizations such as the Civic Music Club and the Quincy Art Club are also open to students. Through the agencies of these clubs, cultural attractions such as symphony con- certs and exhibits of well-known paintings are available to those who are interested. During the last few years one of the major con- cerns of students selecting a school has been housing. This problem at Gem City, however, is reduced to its minimum because of the long-established housing records kept by the school. Under the supervision of Miss Virginia Bartlett, a list of approved and available rooms is always kept up-to-date. With the help of officers of Gem City Business College most students are placed immediately in desirable lodgings, with or without board. A few apartments are also available. WORK FOR BOARD. Each year a number of our students work for their board, or for board and lodging. These students work in homes by assisting in the housework before or after school hours and on Saturdays and in this Way earn their room and board. Others assist in the several restaurants while still others work on Saturdays and after school hours in the various stores. We are always glad to assist' our students in securing places to work, if they find it necessary to do something to help defray expenses. - The cost of room and board is so flexible that it is difficult to give absolute figures. The requirements vary with the individual andiliving conditions which are sufficient for one are inadequate for another. Consequently, the prices 'given below are approxi- mate and should only be used for the purpose of obtaining a general idea of the costs in planning your budget. We supervise the placing of students in homes and see that our students find suitable places to meet their requirements. . Rooms in private homes-one in room-33.00 to 35.00 a week. , Roomsxin private homes-two in room-32.50 to 34.00'a week. Room and Board in private home-311.00 to 315.00 a week. Room in Y.M.C.A.-The Y.M.C.A. offers a special price to Gem City boys. This price in- cludes a membership to the Y.M.C.A. privileges, including the use of the gymnasium and swim- ming pool. Those who cannot swim are given adequate instruction without additional charge. Room in Y.M.C.A.-Single--34.25 to 35.75 a week. Room in Y.M.C.A.-Double-deck beds-33.50 each a week. These are the prices at the time of printing this catalog. They will probably remain in force but are not guaranteed. 18 GEM clrv BUSINESS col.l.EoE, QUINCY, ILLINOIS GEM cmr RENDERS OUTSTANDING TRAINING ix?-In PLACEMENT TO wolun wAR II VETERANS W "ssss X . .. . .... .... . ,... . -il I" ' 'f ,A,, . .

B. 8z Q. Railroad Leavenworth, Kansas During its long and successful life, the Gem City Business College. has trained thousands of young men and women and has then placed them in touch with employment. As these young people have de- veloped in the business world many of them have become leaders in industry and trade. This time, extending as it does over a period of seventy-seven years, has developed a feeling of good will towards the institution and a dependence on our judgment in the selection of candidates for vacancies. This in- fluence extends throughout the United States and is largely responsible for the successful placement of large numbers of Gem City graduates. We have' received many compliments on the fact that we placed over one hundred veterans in lucra- tive positions during the school year of 1946-47. There is a fascination about the placing ofa veteran in a position and watching him receive more and more responsibility as times goes on. 7 Among those veterans who are slated forbetter things are Stephen Sherwood of Hunnewell, Mis- souri, Joseph Middleton of Vandalia, Missouri and Charles Duan of Quincy, who were sent to positions with the A. P. Green F irebrick Company in Mexico, Mrpszsouri. M O ugene cKee of Colchester, Illinois, desir Job in Rock Island, Illinois. His record with usellfazs good, so we wrote a number of well-known concerns in that cityand as a result, he was employed in the United States District Engineer's Office. He reports that the work is fascinating. It should not be long before he is placed in a higher classification. Robert Ward wished to go to Chicago to secure employment. Naturally there are a large number of personnel managers who know of our reputation and who' have hired Gem City students' in the past, These men have high regard for our recommenda- tions and the majority of them are always anxious to secure one of our graduates. Consequently, Mr, Ward was employed by the Santa Fe Railway office in Chicago. , After he had completed his course, Charles Turner of Hamilton, Illinois, expressed his desire for a rail- road position. He was referredto the C: B. 81 Q,, who employed him and sent him to their Leaven- worth, Kansas office. e 1 . . I There's the case of Miss L11l1an Williams, for- merly of Carthage, Illinois. Miss Williams is a graduate of the Stenographic course in our institu- tion and during World War II, served in a com- mercial capacity in the WAC. Following her dis- charge from the service, Miss Williams returned to Gem City for a "refresher course" in -commercial subjects. She has had a secretarial position in the civil service with the United States Government in Frankfurt, Germany. While there she made a six- minute phone call to her folks from Germany and told them of her interesting position. The experience of these young people and many others being duplicated continually at Gem C1ty and is evidence of the caliber of the training and the faith of the employing public in this school. Gem City has been in existence for over seventy- seven years and the present personnel department has been managed by one man for more than thlflly' seven years. This man is well acquainted Wlfh DCF' sonnel managers throughout the middle west, S0 It becomes obvious that if the student is Well-ffallled and well-qualified, Mr. Musselman will be able to put that student in touch with employers who Wlu be interested in his ability.

Many persons expecting to go to some university find that the business course of this institution gives them a fundamental drill that is very valuable in their later work. Many others insist on shorthand and typing, for they know that this is invaluable in taking notes and should anything go wrong with their academic course, it will give them a sure job. It is a known fact that many large corporations give preference to the person who has had stenographic training. CIVIL SERVICE Veterans should consider the possibilities of government employment under the United States C1v1l Service Act. In addition to the many ad- vantages of Federal employment the veteran has the advantage of a five percent credit added to his exam1nat1on,,while if he is a disabled veteran he is given a credit of ten percent. As the eligibility list is made on a percentage basis, this added credit gives the veteran a distinct advantage over the civilian worker. COURSES OFFERED VETERANS OF WORLD WAR II To meet the different requirements of returned veterans, we offer the following courses which have been approved by the Veterans Administration for veterans under both Public Law 346 and 16. C11 Business course-fifty-two weeks Mathematics A frapid calculationb, mathe- matics B, business organization, commercial law, bookkeeping and elementary accounting, actual business-bookkeeping laboratory, office ma- chines, business English and letter writing, spell- ing and word drill, penmanship. C21 Business course with typing-sixty weeks Full business course as listed above. In con- nection with the business course, the student is given typing instruction, first one period a day and later two periods until the knowledge of the keyboard and the typing speed is sufficient to meet requirements of a bookkeeper-typist position. FREE SCHOLARSHIPS AND The Gem City Business College is a member of the National Association of Accredited Commercial Schools, the National Council of Business Schools, and of the Illinois Association of Commercial Schools. These organizations have definite stand- ards of practice which their members must agree to follow. Unfair inducements in the way of guaran- teeing positions and offers of free scholarships are not tolerated by the members of these organizations.

Any school violating this requirement shall be dropped from membership of the Council as provided in Article III, Section 4 of the Constitution of the Council. "The entire cost of operating a private school comes from tuition receipts. Any school, therefore, that deviates from its published tuition rate either C13 requires that certain of its patrons shall pay more than a just proportion of the cost of the educational services received, or C25 tends to depreciate the quality of the educational services rendered. The practice of cutting rates or prices is frowned upon in business as bad ethics. It is equally frowned upon as bad ethics in business education." We subscribe to these rules of practice and neither cut prices nor offer free scholarships to anyone. We give full value for the tuition received and each student knows that he is paying the same tuition rates as every other student.

HIGHER ACCOUNTING For our higher accounting work, we offer the popular course of instruction known as the Wal- ton course in higher accounting which IS one of the outstanding courses of accounting. It has. been adopted by a large number of the leading universi- ties and colleges of the country. The texts and lectures have been developed and built along sound, practical pedagogical lines presenting to the student such a course of study as will meet the ever increas- ing 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 develops the power of analysis, reasoning, and concentration. In order to obtain the best results from any course in Accounting it is suggested that the student .be thoroughly prepared along the lines of bookkeeping prior to its study. We therefore advise the com- pletion of our Business course before attempting the work in higher accounting. The Walton course is divided into live sections. These may be studied in the order listed. However, the student may follow any section independently of the rest of the course, should he so desire. SECTION I WALTON CONSTRUCTIVE ACCOUNTING Constructive accounting consists of thirty-three lectures with supporting problems, theory questions and three practice sets. Single proprietorship, part- nership, and corporation principles are thoroughly covered. There has been woven into the lectures much that would come under the heads of business organization and management, corporate finance, and system building. Drills in preparing operating and financial statements are also included in this section. Special lecture on Social Security Taxes. 33 lectures, problems and theory questions- practice set work, blank forms for practice set work, contained in 2", three-post, loose-leaf semi-flexible text binder. .

These lectures and the practice set work are known as Walton cost accounting short course. Lectures 19 to 30 inclusive are devoted to cost accounting for by-products.

A knowledge of this type of accounting is mandatory with all organiza- tions handling General Motors equipment and cars. The principles involved are similar to the accounting systems of the Ford and Chrysler organizations. The student who masters this course is competent to handle the other automotive accounting systems. The cost of the texts, working sheets and books- 39.00. . CALCULATING MACHINE COURSE A There is a demand for calculator machine oper- ators, especially in the larger trade centers such as Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Indianapolis and Detroit. We give a certain amount of instruction on the calculating machine as a part of our routine course of instruction in the business department. This teaches the keyboard and the operation of the various types of computations. Those who wish to specialize on this machine may take a more compre- hensive course. In addition to the regular informative course given in the business department, we offer two special courses which prepare the students for the more exacting requirements of work as a full time calculating machine operatorg a six weeks course and a twelve weeks' course. Cost of the in- struction book for the six weeks' course is 50c. ' SOCIAL SECURITY, WITHDRAWAL TAX Sz UNEMPLOYMENT TAX ACCOUNTING The instruction given in our rapid calculation classes and in our regular accounting work amply prepares the student for pay roll accounting. Those students who wish additional information on these subjects' can get the necessary advice and reference books by consulting any of the teachers in the book- keeping and accounting departments. THE STENOTYPE COURSE Stenotype-New classes start the first of each month, provided there is a sufficient number to form a class. ' Manual-Average time to cover text and reader, eight to ten weeks. - Dictation-Average time, sixteen to twenty weeks. Dictation speed is 70, 80, 100, 125, and 150 words a minute. Typing, business English, spelling, office practice class and Civil Service-as outlined under head of Stenographic course. ' , LIFE SCHOLARSHIP Those who wish to take advantage of the Life Scholarship plan of tuition, which has been so popular with our students for the past seventy- seven years, should write to the secretary of the college for information. , We do not issue Life Scholarships for the Steno- type course, the Walton Course in Higher Account- ing, the General Motors Accounting Course, the Ford Motor Accounting Course, the Social Security Course, or the Special Calculator Course. The regular, term tuition rates are charged for these courses. g Students having term tuition who wish to change to a Life Scholarship, may do so at any time by. paying the full. cost of the scholarship as published above. ' TUITION RATES Tuition Payable in Advance Four weeks, good in any department-32250. Special courses may be arranged for those who desire them. Special attention is directed towards those courses now being given in General Motors accounting, Social Security work and in the use of the calculating machines. - BOOKS AND STATIONERY Books and stationery for the various courses of study are kept in stock at the office. The cost of the books for each course is approximately as follows: For the Business course ......... ...........

In the case of our bookkeeping and elementary accounting texts, we have written and published our own texts over a period of seventy-seven years. In our opinion, there are no better textbooks on the market today. These books are modernized each year to meet the chang- ing conditions caused through new laws governing the income tax, social security, unemployment com- pensation, and other federal laws.

It is the seat of Congress and the majority of the government Bureaus are lo- cated in that city. A number of the Outstanding Museums and Universities are there and it is one of the cultural spots of the world. The majority of the workers in the government offices are under the United States Civil Service. Under the original Civil Service Act, a person is selected from an eligible list and after a period of probation, is certified to his position on a permanent basis. As long as his work is of a satisfactory nature, he can depend on a permanent position with pension benefits after he has reached retirement age. There are ample chances for advancement in rank and salary and there is the added incentive for one located in Washington in being able to complete any type of educational training that he wishes. There are three grades of typists, stenographers, and six grades of clerks with Salaries ranging from 31756.00 to 33021.00 a year. The basic time is a five day, forty hour week, and for hours in excess of forty hours in any week the pay is one and one-half times the basic rate. The three initial grades and the salary scale of each is as follows: TYPIST-+STENOGRAPHERS-CLERK . . Basic Position Salary CAF-1 .... ...,. S 1750.00 CAF-2 .... 1954.00 CAF-3 .... 2163 28 CAF-4 .... 1 f I 1 13239400 The additional grades for clerks have the follow- ing optional branches: PERSON N EL-PURCHASING-STOCK ACCOUNTING-STATISTICAL-RATE Basic Position Salary CAF-5 ................................ 2644.80 CAF-6 ................................ 3021.00 For those individuals who can qualify, either by training or experience there are higher grades under the headings of ACCOUNTANT and AUDITOR with salary ranges from 33874.00 to 33397.20 and from 39378.33 to 39975.00 respectively. The next series of classifications are as follows: Basic Position Salary CAF- 7 33397.20 CAF- 8 3773.40 CAF- 9 4149.60 CAF-10 4525.80 CAF -1 1 4902.00 CAF-12 5905.00 CAF -13 7102.20 CAF-14 8179.50 CAF-15 9975.00 It will be readily seen fromthe above that there are ample opportunities for those persons who are Quallfied and competent. Because of that reason We urge all persons to complete the training offered at Gem City before going to Washington as th1S will make. it possible for one to qualify for a better classification than might be possible without the thorough foundation given in this institution. 11 W' U ,I P' 7.1" 'S I! -' lf . r , Lf? ff A," .- Uf' Q., ,age , . fLsQ,,,l!1.' a'f.1"" E' . 1. r-Y' Milly , gf J 45 ' ., Zag".

In addition to the United States Service there are numerous State Civil Service positions that offer attractive positions. The Federal Service now has a forty hour week with a basic salary. In addition to the courses of instruction offered by the various colleges and universities in Wash- ington, the Department of Agriculture offers college and graduate work along specialized lines available to government employees. The Government supervises the housing of its employees and it is possible for one to obtain com- fortable quarters, where conditions are suitable and pleasant. Bulletins received from the government assure us that a girl is perfectly safe in going to the Capitol for work. There is a month's vacation on pay. With the museums, sights, and chances for observing the government in action, a girl is wise to plan to get to the Capitol City if possible. Positions in the Capitol City offer wonderful opportunities. The libraries, museums, art galleries, and other public buildings, which are among the most beautiful in the world, are yours to enjoy at your leisure. The opportunity to visit Congress and hear its debates is in itself an education. A great many states, including Illinois and Mis- souri, have Civil Service control over many of their positions. In the state of Illinois, practically every clerical, stenographic, or other office position is secured through Civil Service examinations con- ducted by the state. The state of Missouri has re- cently adopted Civil Service. COLLEGE EDUCATION CAN BE SECURED WHILE IN A CIVIL SERVICE POSITION There are many advantages offered to the person in the Federal Civil Service, and every young woman is justified in considering it as a possible future occupation. Many young men and women wishing a college or university education do not realize that it is possible to secure such training because of their working in a United States Civil Service position in Washington, D. C. Located in Washington are such nationally known institutions as the American University, the Catholic University of America, George Washington University, Georgetown Uni- versity, National University. These universities have planned courses of instruction covering all types of training that commence in the early evening and are designed for civil service employees. It is possible for one in the government employ to work during the daytime and then complete his college work at night in approximately the same length of time required by the student attending the average college in the day time. Many Gem City students have secured their college degrees and courses in law, medicine, engineering, or some science in this manner. It is an opportunity that should be considered by the ambitious person. When one comes to Gem City, we shall be glad to advise him concerning such a program of higher education. LARGE NUMBERS OF GEM CITY STUDENTS ARE IN CIVIL SERVICE POSITIONS 'Throughout the years, many hundreds of Gem City students have successfully passed the United States Civil Service examinations and have obtained employment in Washington. Many of these persons Supreme Court Building, Washington, D. C. went to Washington because of the educational opportunities and have remained in Governmental service, while others have used the civil service work as a stepping stone to positions elsewhere. Among the many former students who are holding attractive positions with the government are: Velma Ryan, Foreign Trade Analyst, Recon- struction Finance Corporation, T. C. Clinkenbeard, Veterans Administration, Cincinnati, A. Guy Daniels, Veterans Administration, Washington, D. C., Vivian Shuman, Federal Bureau of Investi- gation, Chicago, Grover Jones, Treasury Fiscal Representative, Chicago, W. F. Baker, Naval Am- munition Depot, Hawthorne, Nevada, J. F. Wagen- blast, Chief, Statistical section, Social Security Board, Baltimore, Md., Susan Hall Hickman, De- partment of State, Washington, James Offut, Private Secretary to the Director of the Mint, William H.

Rippel, War department, Lorna Rippel, Treasury department, Dorothy Speiser, Production management. The above are but a few of the hundreds of Gem City students who are happily at work for the Federal government in Washington. -Every young person should consider the possibilities offered by the government to its workers. 28 GEM CITY BUSINESS COLLEGE, QUINCY, ILLINOIS 1 CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS DR.

GEM CITY BUSINESS COLLEGE, Qumcv, ILLINOIS 29 OPPORTUNITIES ABOUND FOR THOSE TRAINED AT GEM CITY One of the keys to a successful career is efficient training. When that training is obtained from a school with seventy-seven years of experience in giving commercial education, there is every assurance that the training will be adequate. The important but indefinable ingredient within that training is the reputation of the school giving it. The desire to get ahead, ample initiative and willingness to work coupled with the superior training that is given by Gem City assures one of the opportunity to demonstrate his ability. To the young man or woman finishing his course at Gem City are opened many fascinating fields of business. Several of the most important of these are transportation, salesmanship, banking, and manufacturing. In the past many "Gems" have attained high positions in these business fields, in the future many more "Gems" are destined to do the same. r . TRANSPORTATION The backbone of the nation, it has been said, is the railroad system of the United States. Railroads are employers of many men, and offer the ambitious newcomer a chance to rise high in the business. Stenographers and clerks must have an excellent background of training to enter this business, but Gem City students are always reasonably certain of being considered for these positions. The large number of railroad executives who started working for their companies after completing Gem City Business College is proof of this fact. Not supplanting, but complimenting, rail trans- portation is the field of air travel. A new and con- stantly growing business, air transportation offers opportunities almost unlimited to both men and women. As in any other concern, office forces must be maintained by the large companies, and all parts of the country need individuals well-trained and with potential executive ability. Many Gem City boys have established themselves with some of the country's leading railroads and air transport companies and are now on the way to outstanding executive positions. One of these far- sighted young men was James Aydelott who was placed by us as a stenographic clerk with the C. B. SL Q. Ry. at Brookfield, Missouri, in 1902. Because of his ability he was advanced from time to time until he was the General Manager of that great railroad. During the Second World War he was loaned to the United States government to help handle traffic problems in connection with the moving of men and materials throughout the country. He is now the head of the Association of American Railroads, one of the most important posts in industry. , SALESMANSHIP I A good salesman is a friendly person who likes people. He can talk entertainingly on many sub- jects, and he knows and believes sincerely in the product he sells. He also has many reports to make, and for this a pleasing personality is scarcely enough. Employers demand system and neatness that do not come by the trial-and-error method, but instead are the results of thorough training. Many fields are open to the man who takes up selling as a career-insurance, retailing, whole- saling, to name a few. A good commercial education will aid in all these, and may be the deciding factor in promotion. A salesmanls job in earlier days differed- extensively from that of today. As an example, in the wholesale business, if he were reasonably intelligent he could expect to be pro- moted. Today, according to a prominent expert in the wholesale business, he should have an education- al background that includes a course in business administration, for "wholesaling" as everything else, has become scientific. Although "selling" as a .course is not offered at Gem City, many of its most essential parts are in- cluded in the business course. Under the depart- ment of business organization and administration the student becomes thoroughly grounded in those necessary elements which make the difference between success and failure. In the. letter writing classes the principles of salesmanship are taught in the development of sales letters. ' Many Gem City boys become interested in the field of selling, and find their training of great help. It was just a few years ago that Leslie Crews, a boy from New Canton, Illinois, enrolled in Gem City. He made a good record and when he had com- pleted his course was placed in a good clerical posi- tion by the school. Later he joined the Montgomery Ward organization where he received one promotion after another. Today Mr. Crews' is vice-president of this organization, one of the largest merchandising concerns in the world. This is a specific instance of "super-salesmanship, MANUFACTURING . "Manufacturing" is a broad termg it embodies many types of business, large, small, in-between, it involves many types of operations, but they all add up to one thing-the manufacturers of the world are the producers of goods. Two sides of this production are the shop and the office, and each has its technical experts. - The office force of any manufacturing concern consists of typists, clerks, bookkeepers, as well as the heads of the business. There are also cost ac- countants, auditors, and secretaries who must make daily decisions of importance. This last group of workers must be highly efficient and well-trained. Men and women intending to specialize in these positions find that they can get this needed training at Gem City. ao GEM clrv BUSINESS COLLEGE, Qumcv, lLl.lNols The work of an accountant gives him an intimate knowledge of the operation and condition 'of a concern. Profit is the life and vitality of all business, and it is the place of the accountant to aid in the development of profit as against loss. Most busi- nesses depend upon their own accounts for con- structive benefits, and the accountant who has a knowledge and natural interest in finance, business law, business administration, statistics, and taxa- tion will advance high in his field. His .future .lies in the increased importance wh1ch.h1s services assume, and his rewards are usually in proportion to the value of his contribution. Many of the ablest executives in business today received part of their training in accounting positions, and many of the high executives of tomorrow are engaged. in ac- countancy now. Business courses at Gem City pro- vide the necessary knowledge and develop the abilities of the student so that as an accountant he will be able to forge ahead of the rest of the field. Secretaries in manufacturing concerns have also many opportunities for advancement. The work of a secretary goes far beyond the mere taking of dictation and typing of letters. As a secretary learns more and more of the particular aspects of any business, he is given an increasing amount of re- sponsibility. In many concerns it is only natural, then, that when a vacancy occurs among the more important positions, a well informed secretary is ready to step into it. Gem City trained men and women have the best available equipment for secretarial positions and many of them have ad- vanced far in the field of manufacturing for this reason. Among those who have chosen and succeeded in manufacturing is- D . Ray Todd was reared in the small town of Bowen, Illinois. After Ray had completed his high school course, he came to Gem City, taking one of the combination courses. As he was finishing the steno- graphic course, a request for a stenographer 'came from the National Cash' Register Company and Ray was sent to the position. Having ability, a determination to get ahead and tireless energy, Ray was soon advanced to more responsible positions until now he is the Executive secretary of that great manufacturing concern. Among other Gem City graduates who are in executive positions with the National Cash Register Company are William Argast, aNauvoo, Illinois, boy whois Sales manager of City Sales and George Whitefort, who is head of the sales organization for the entire United States. As a final word on vocations, most people have the capabilities to become-leaders in Various fields, but these capabilities must I be developed through training. This is the work that Gem City Business College sincerely tries to do in the most efficient manner possible. For seventy-seven years therepu- tation of the school has been such that a young person who can write "Gem City trained" on his application blank for a job has a chance considerably higher for success than the average person. BANKING .Banking as a career should be seriously con- sidered by young people who are looking for posi- tions of stability. Requirements for a good banker are strict, but there is a satisfaction in the business, which comes from serving people. A prominent banker of Georgia states that there are seven quali- ties needed by young people who seek this field for their future, namely: integrity, service, patience, adaptability, tolerance, tact, and conservatism. He further adds that the ideal preparation for the in- coming banker is a good education, which has in- cluded some study of accounting, business ad- ministration, and commerce. With these specifica- tions in mind, Gem City has organized a program designed to prepare young men and women for this career. A bank' executive seldom starts at the top. He gains his position by dint of hard work and the application of good judgment in his decisions. The handling of other people's money is a public trust of the highest order, and only the man with the highest qualifications succeeds in becoming an im- portant executive. Thus, it is seen that success in this field is strictly up to the individual. However, no person will be able to advance easily, even on his own merits, unless he has had some specialized work in prepara- tion. Gem City Business College has developed a practical group of classes to aid young people who are interested in banking. In addition to the usual business classes in accounting, a special bookkeeping set designed to familiarize the student with work of banks is available. Business arithmetic, along with business organization and administration and com- mercial law, adds to this excellent training course for the prospective banker. A banking diploma is issued to all students completing the course of banking at Gem City Business College. Although most people visualize banking as a career for men, many young women have succeeded extremely well. i Among these is Miss Addie Schell who enrolled from Terre Haute, Indiana. She completed the full combination business and stenographic courses and was granted the degree Bachelor of Accounts be- cause of the excellence of her grades. Upon the com- pletion of her course, we sent her to a temporary position with the Illinois State Bank in Quincy. Her work was so good and the bank was so pleased with her services that we felt justified in referring her to a position with the Continental Illinois National Bank and Trust Company of Chicago. This bank is one of the outstanding banking organizations of the United States. Miss Schell was advanced in position and salary from time to -time until she is now the secretary to the president of that important bank. She is not the only former Gem City student in a prominent place in that bank, for Leland S. Ford, a Wyaconda, Missouri, boy who was a student in Gem City in 1914 was sent to Chicago sometime after that date, is now a Vice-President in the bank. The list of Gem City alumni who are connected with banks co'ntains many of the prominent bankers of the country and makes an impressive showing. Among these is the name of Walter A. Hombs,.who was born in Glenwood, Missouri. After his business and banking course at Gem City he was placed in the Logan's bank in Glenwood and in time he was madethe Assistant Cashier. His work was so out- standing that he was later made a F ederal. Bank Examiner for northern Missouri. He served in this capacity for many years. Later he was made the Vice-President and Comptroller of the Tower Grove National Bank of St. Louis. His bank is growlpg rapidly under his management. Such a record ln- dicates that Gem City training is practical and worth while. Fa: DQ L is TN 1 I -Www A 5 r A .

Legible penmanship is rapidly becoming one of the lost arts. Gem City believes that everyone should write a good, rapid, legible type of penmanship. In many instances one's penmanship is the deciding, factor in being chosen for a job. For that reason we teach penmanship in our business course and under our super- vision and training large numbersof young men and women improve their handwriting. With the instruc- sf' C tion given by us the improvement in writing is remarkable. Each year we have a contest covering the best writer and the mostl improvement, both boy's and girls. The above group are among those who made the most improvement during the course.

J 1 Municipal Swimming Pool in Indian Mounds Park Among' the many sports that are enloyedby the Gem City student is that of swimming. There are many opportunities for those who wish to swim. First, during the winter and summer the Y.M.C.A. has swimming campaigns, in which both boys and girls are taught to swim. When properly taught, as it is with the Y.M.C.A., one is able to learn to swim in an satisfactory manner Within a week of the time a campaign begins.. During the summer months, the Municipal pool is open to the public. It is one of the most popular spots in the Quincy Park system. The filtration system IS under State supervision and the water is kept sterile and clean at all times. From two to four life guards are in attendance at all times, depending on the number of persons swimming. There has never been a drowning in the Quincy Municipal Pool.
