l..-i..1i.i. Tuztzon We have but one rate for all .- , J KY A Yi W L Conditions ALL UNUSED TUITION on any contract will be refundedg that is, should one contract for any amount of tuition and use only a part of it, he would be charged S10 a month for the actual time he attended school and the remainder of his money would be refunded. A MONTH'S TUITION with us means a calendar month and not four Weeks. ALL TIME unavoidably lost will be counted out. Should a pupil lose a week or more, the time will be deducted regardless of the reason for the loss of time. . ' Terms S10 a month in advance. S57 for six months in advance. S375 for eight months in advance. S108 for' twelve months in advance. Money-Back Tuition Of the great number of students annually buying scholarships in the business colleges of the coast not more than one-fourth of them use the entire time paid for. This means practically that three-fourths of all these students lose from two weeks' to six month's tuition. Estimated at S510 a month they lose from S5 to S60 by buying tuition in a school where there is no tuition refunded. . Why should you buy a six-months' or a year's scholarship in a school which will not refund unused tuition? You may not like the school, it may not be all it was representedg Hnancial misfortune may overtake you and make it impossible for you to complete your courseg sickness or change of conditions may make it impossible for you to use your tuition. Buy your scholarship in a school which has enough faith in its work to oifer you a MONEY-BACK contract.

Jteno: graphic Dept. Shorthand ur shorthand course.inc.ludes Practical Grammar and Correspondence, Spelling, Writing, Shorthand, Typewriting, Duplicating, Billing, Filing, Mimeographing, Oflice Customs, Care of Machines, etc. We use Dement's Pitmanic Shorthand as our text. It is recognized as one of the best of the Pitmanic systems. While we use Dement's book as our text, our Principal, Mr. Misner, uses the best outlines Q n culled from Graham, Ben Pitman and Dement. Special attentioniis given to our language work in this department. The ability to write a good manuscript, paragraph, punctuate, and spell properly, are requirements that every stenographer must meet. . Typewriting , The subject of Typewriting is inseparable from Stenography, the two must go together. It is just as as necessary for a stenographer to be able to type his notes rapidly, accurately and neatly as it is for him to write them properly. The tpyewriter has become a necessity in every oflice. All students are required to take the "All Finger" or "Touch" method of typewriting. The value of this method has been demonstrated beyond a doubt. Shorthand Faculty Mr. E. D. Misner, principal of the Shorthand Department, is recognized as one of the best teachers of Shorthand in the entire country. He has the following qualifications: He is a graduate of the Ionia QMichiganj High School and has had two years' work in the University of Michigan. His Commercial and Shorthand training was received at the Northern Indiana Business College, Valparaiso, Indiana, and at Ferris Institute, Big Rapids, Michigan. He has had much experience in Shorthand, both as a teacher and as a stenographer in Commercial houses. Miss Sperry, the first assistant in this department, has been with us for three years. She is a thoroughly capable young woman. . . , l Miss Lorraine Wolfe second assistant in thisdepartment, took her special training under Mr. Misner, and is well prepared for her work. 1 Diploma Requirements DIPLOMAS WILL BE AWARDED to those in this department who take the full course outlined above and secure a grade of 85 per cent in spelling, 85 per cent in grammar, correspondence. and writing, and can take dictation accurately at one hundred twenty words a minute. We require a minimum speed of forty words a minute on a typewriter, copying from rough draft.

,ll Board and Rooms N5 . UR pupils secure good board and rooms in private families at the rate of S16 a month. We keep on hand a. list of the private families who keep students boarders, and will gladly render students any assistance they may require in securing proper accommodations. We are personally acquain- ted with all of those who keep boarders for us, and know that the pupils will be surrounded by proper home influence. 1 When young men and women leave home to attend school, it is very important that they should be surrounded by the best possible environment. The private family boarding house is the nearest approach to the home itself. Do not be deceived into believing that any club-house or dormitory system can take the place of the private family. ' Our plan of boarding in private families where but few students will be thrown together in their home life, is the most desirable arrangement possible. We urge you to investigate it. , Cost of Books The cost of books and stationery is always an item of expense to be considered when estimating the cost of a course. We have used every effort to bring this expense as low as it can possibly be done and still secure the best results from the class Work. A Upon request we will send you a printed list of books used in each department with their prices in detail. THE TOTAL cost of books and stationery for the business course is S11.30. The total cost of books and stationery for a shorthand course isabout 36.00. This includes one ream of paper for typewriting. The total cost of books and stationery for a normal course is about 518. The cost of books and stationery for the business and shorthand courses combined is about S16. We furnish all ink and stationery for oflice work in the business practice department. We treat you fairly in all things. Send for our itemized list of books with their prices.
