Enduring Investments, bv Roger W.

Baboon. Published by "the MacMil-

lan Company. Chicago. 111. Cloth

cover. 190 pages.

This little book is made up largely
from notes which the writer jotted
down from time to time after exper-
iences of one sort or another. It is an
economic discussion of the sources,
uses, abi'ses and dangers of wealth.
Different forms of stock and bond in-
vestments are considered with their
relative degree of endurance.

In the second part of the book an-
other slant is given to the word "en-
during." Instead of stock and bond
investments, human souls, Christian ed-
ucational institutions and various forms
of benevolences are emphasized as the
only truly enduring investments. Fur-
thermore, logical arguments are given
as to whv this is so.



The Glands Regulating Personality, bv

Louis Bcrnian. M. D. Published by
MacMillan Company. Chicago. Cloth
cover. 300 pages.

Why do individuals diiTcr? Why does
one man succeed while another fails
under the same conditions? What di-
vides them into so-called "types"?

The author shows that man's indi-
viduality is controlled by the quality
and quantity of internal secretions act-
ing in him. Based on the most recent
researches in physiology and psychol-
ogy there is a convincing quality in
what Dr. Berman says, a fascinating
portrayal of hte personalities of men,
a charm of style— all making this an
absorbing book and one of decided
value to him who is interested in
human beings.



THE SCIENCE OF EDUCATION

A Book with a 'Vital Message
For All Teachers

Reviewed for the Business Educator by

Karl M Maukert, Duff's College,

Pittsburgh

The readers of the Business Educator
will be glad to learn that a book which
is considered a pedagogical classic in
Europe has now been made accessible
to English-speaking educators in an
able translation by Felix M. Kirsch.
The work is "The Science of Educa-
tion" by Otto Willmann, Ph. D., and
the first volume, now on the market,
is a well-printed, handsomely-bound
book of 375 pages.

We have no doubt that American
schoolmen will give a cordial welcome
to the work as ofifering much-needed
guidance in solving the educational
problems confronting us on all sides.
The book is a masterly defense of what
must always remain the essence of an
cflfective course of study, and we eag-
erly await the second volume as giving
in detail what the first volume offers
in guiding principle. After reading the
present volume, we are glad to endorse
the view of those educators who pro-
nounce "The Science of Education" one
of the most valuable pedagogical pub-
lications in the English language.

Vve who have had the privilege of
examining the manuscript of the second
volume, which is now in the press, an-
nounce a feast to the teacher of pen-
manship in the author's very wise sug-
gestions for making penmanship a live
and interesting subject. Even the first
volume shows how the character of
writing materials have a large bearing
on the development of culture and civi-
laziton. In fact, the work in stimulat-
ing reading for every educator.

The book is published by the Arch-
abbey Press, Beattv. Pa.

A Letter which Speaks for Itself



"We have been using Advanced Dictation and Secretarial Training for more
than a year as the basis for graduation from our Shorthand Department. Previous
to its adoption we had used portions of several other similar courses, combined with
certain matter that we had secured from business offices in our locality. I lowever,
we were never satisfied with what we had, because it was practically a collection of
unrelated, miscellaneous tasks that did not convince the learner that he was really
doing stenographic work or following out the daily routine of an office worker.

"As soon as I saw I\Ir. Reigner's course. I realized that he had what we had
been looking for. I regard the adoption of .-Idz'ancid Dictation and Secretarial
Training as the best thing we have done in our Shorthand Department for the last
fifteen years. Students are interested in the work because it commands their
respect. When they are performing the tasks required of them in this course, they
know there is nothing artificial or superficial about the work. It re;iuires very little
exercise of the imagination for them to feel and to act like real stenographers. This
is due to the logical correlation of the work embodied in the course.

"The work required in this course is not easy — and it should not be. Students
are rightfully proud of their success when they have met the requirements. A
student who is capable of completing the work set forth in this course has within
him the making of a good stenographer or secretary; and an\- student who goes
through this course will be far better equipped for the Ijusiness world than he can
possibly be otherwise.

"We are insisting in our talks with prospective employers that this course gives
better training to our advanced students than nine out of ten beginning stenograph-
ers get in any business in a year of so-called 'experience.' To a great extent this
course bridges the gap between the 'green' graduate of the business school and the
'experienced' stenographer.

"We have examined all the books and courses that purport to give 'office
training,' 'business training,' or 'secretarial training.' We. have tried most of them,
but in our judgment there is none on the market today that is in the .same class with
the Reigner course.

"Our students enjoy the work even though it is difficult in places. One of our
recent graduates said to me upon the completion of the course: 'Before I took the
office ])ractice work I thought I was ready for a jiosition; now I know that I was
not ready.' Another recently said : T do not .see how anybody could take a position
without having had office practice.' A good, practical teacher can make a wonderful
success with this book.

"I have no interest whatever in this matter except to do justice to a good
piece of work."

Yours very truly,

(Signed) J. E. Fuller,

Vice-President. Goldey College.

IVilniington. Delaware.
