HE purpose of this department' is to train young men and young women to become successful
teachers in the public schools of California and to prepare them for county examinations. With this
double purpose in view, we have outlined our Normal Course upon well-tried educational prin-
ciples, and with as much system as is used by any school, public or private, in the country. We
have eliminated the grinding, "cramming" system, which is a prominent feature of many private normals.
In no department of our work does the personality and ability of the teacher count for so much. We
invite those who think of becoming teachers to examine carefully into our Normal Course and to inquire
into the reputation of each member of our Normal faculty. '
Mr. Humphreys and Mr. Peart has each had more than eleven years of experience in Normal work.
Five years of this time they worked together and established areputation for Normal work which is well
known. Mr. Bessac, the other member of the Normal faculty, has had than four years' experience in
his present position, in addition to four years' experience in the publig schools of this state, both as prin-
cipal and instructor, and has proved himself to be a teacher of rare ability in Literature, History, Geogra-
phy and Civil Government. Pupils receive an inspgation from his-recitations. A u
OUR NORMAL COURSE includes a thorougggiiview of Arithmetic, mental and written, Civil Gov-
ernment, Grammar, Algebra to Quadratics, Plane Geometry, Physics, Rhetoric, English and American
Literature, United States History, Ancient, Medieval, and'Modern History, Spelling, Word Analysis, Ped-
agogy, Physiology, Bookkeeping and Elements of Drawing and Music.
THE TIME required to complete this course depends upon the pupil's present acquirements, her ability,
and willingness to work. High school graduates usually complete the course in six to nine months. Eighth

County Board in the state.. Send for our special Normal circulars.

9' T is our aim in this Department to give the pupils more than a mere preparation for office work,
Office Work, it is true, is a most important feature of our Business Course, but the work of this
department is outlined with a view to developing individuality, and business acumen. It is our
purpose to cultivate the positive traits of character which make the successful man a power in
the business world. We give due prominence to the training which prepares for successful office
work, and appreciate its value. It is the immediate means of making a living and furnishes an
avenue through which a young man may enter upon a business career. A brief outline of our Business
Course follows. i
OUR BUSINESS COURSE includes the following studies: Rapid Calculation, Commercial Arithmetic,
Practical Grammar and Correspondence, Commercial Law, Spelling, Writing, Bookkeeping, Business Cus-
OUR PLAN of teaching Bookkeeping, Business Customs, Oflice Systems, etc., is original and is based
entirely on California Business Methods. These subjects are taught by "Actual Business Practice" from
the beginning. The theory of bookkeeping is given to the student just as he needs it by means of text-book
study, class work and lectures on business theory and business practice. ' U
By our "Actual Business Practice" method we lead our pupil by degrees from the simplest transac-
tions in a business in which the student is sole proprietor to the most complex transactions of a corporation.
He actually deals with other students and corporations both at home and in other schools. The work is
thus made intensely interesting from the very beginning. '
OUR OFFICE SYSTEMS are taught by actual ofiice work. In our "Actual Business Practice" oflices,
our pupils actually use the latest loose-leaf and card systems applied to retailing, wholesaling, transpor-
tation, real estate, collecting, insurance, commission, banking, etc. Each office is also equipped with the
most modern flat and vertical filing systems.
OUR REQUIREMENTS for a diploma in this department are: a grade of 90 per cent in spelling based
on six examinations, 85 per cent in Grammar and Correspondence, Writing, Bookkeeping and Business
Customs, 80 per cent in Commercial Arithmetic and Commercial Law. Send for our special Business
circular. ' .
