\ W. Shaw Co., Chicago, 111. *

In an interesting, readable manner the
author analyzes the results of hundreds of tests
and studies, and shows specifically the appli-

effect of copy, color, illustration, type faces.

The author tells exactly how to secure at-

fect. He demonstrates the differences, in at-

*^ tention value, of medium, page-position, and

' location of page in the medium. In illumi-

various types of appeals and points out just

* how to test copy. He analyzes belief, de-

circuit appeals.

officers or directors, partners or stockholders.

scribe the methods of the auditor in detect-
ing errors of commission or omission, of a
clerical nature or, most important, of prin-
ciple. The authors show exactly how to start
an audit, explain in detail what procedure to
use in auditing the accounts of a business and
give special attention both to closing the audit
and preparing the exhibits and Certificates
as well as preparing the text of the audit

obtained in an actual situation, with a related
audit report, has been fully reproduced. In
short, the audit is commenced and finished in
the same volume.

Care Business Educator,

Columbus, Ohio.

Indianapolis Business College Cor-
poration Now Operates Ten Schools.
One of the Largest Chain of Schook
in the United States.

Every commercial school man is un-
doubtedly interested in the plans fol-
lowed by other school men which
have proven succes.'^ful. For that rea-
pleased to present from time to time
articles telling how some of the lead-
ing school men are conducting their

Sometimes an idea gained as to how
some one else haniUed a problem or
does a certain thing may prove of
great value.

For some years past we have
watched the progress made by the
chain of Indianapolis business colleges
conducted by President Chas. C. Cring
and his associates. Fortunately Mr.
O. E. Butz, general manager of the
corporation, has written for us an
article setting forth the plans followed
in conducting their numerous institu-

"We note," writes Mr. Butz, "that
articles appear now and then in the
Business Educator concerning the
progress, the growth and development
of schools. Following this plan, we
are pleased to inform you and your
readers of what has taken place here
in Indianapolis this fall in our Central
Business College.

For the past year or two, Central
has been running at practically its full
capacity, in the iiuarters that it oc-
cupied. This fall the enrollment has
run considerably ahead of any pre-
vious year, consequently it was nec-
essary to take on more space.

For several years Central has oc-
cupied thhe entire third floor of the
University Park Building at the cor-
ner of Pennsylvania anil Vermont
Streets. This building is two hundred
feet in length and fifty feet in width
and i,s just opposite University Park.
By the way, our students find this
park a fine "campus" and it is u.sed
considerably by them during the lunch
hour when the weather is favorable.

Fortunately, we were successful in
obtaining a lease on 3400 feet more
on the second door. We- are using
this space exclusively for typewriting
and dictation. Forty-five additional
machines are being adiled to the type-
writer equipment and the prospects
are that we shall have to add more
machines within a few months.

You will be interested in knowing
that there are no partitions whatever
on the .'ird floor. We simply coun-
ters around our offices and between
the business office and tlie office prac-
tice department. On the second floor
the only partition we are using is to
shut olT the heavy noise from the
typewriters, but this is panel and clear
glass, leaving everything open to view.

Tlie departments are arranged so
as to be flexible. Should the Book-
keeping Department l)e particularly
well filled, it can automatically extend
over into the Shorthand Department,
or vice versa. In other words, the
arrangement is on the order of a
large business office. That is the plan

on which all our schools are arranged.

Under this plan it makes no dif-
ference where instructors and those
in charge may be, for all students are
under direct obsei-vation and supervi-
sion. Furthermore, it enables the
students to work under condition.-^
similar to what a great many of them
will encounter when they accept posi-
tions; that is, among other activities
that are going on around them.

We do not even have cloak rooms,
but coat and hat hooks are arranged
on all wall spaces not used for black-
boards, enabling students to hang
their wraps where most convenient to
their seats. Tliis avoids any pilfering
and other annoyances which fre-
quently come as the result of an ex-
clusive cloak room.

President Cring has been a pioneer
in many ideas pertaining to the con-
duct of a business college. It has al-
ways been his idea that a business
college should be operated as nearly
as possible on the order of a practical
modern office.

Without any preliminaries, except
to make the necessary an-angements
for entering, students are put right to
work and are kept working contin-
uously until they are sent to positions.

We say that it should not be nec-
essary for students to undergo
examinations from time to time, espe-
cially in a well conducted business col-
lege, because no examination could
possibly reveal the actual ability and
progress of students as well as a good
teacher should already know. In other
words, we take the position that if a
teacher does not know exactly what
each and every student in his or her
department is doing and can do, that
person is not fit for the place.

We feel sure that these practical,
business-like methods have figured
largely in the success of the Indiana
Business College, because the result
has been a higher percentage of suc-
cessful graduates and a better grade
of bookkeepers and stenographers
than would have been produced under
the old cut and dried methods. This
is as we see it.

is our corporation, comprises ten

Wallace Hugh Whigam, M. S., LL. M.

Carl Schurz High School, and Walton School of

Commerce, Chicago.

Thoroughly revised in collaboration with

C. Martin Alsager

Lindblom High School, M. A., J. D.


Notable for simplicity of presentation, and strong,
practical, constructive work to develop knowl-
edge and application of principles.

New Features In Revised Edition

Further simplitication of text material.

Introduction of material for Moot Court
trials, through which is emphasized:

(a) That there are two sides to each legal

(b) That there may be as much right on one
side as on the other.

This work develops thought on the part of the
pupil, and encourages him in presenting the re-
sults a.s he sees them. In application of Court
Decisions to fact.s, the .student will find a new way
of approaching the solution of legal questions.

3. The new book emphasizes the ethical side of
human action — square dealing among men.

4. The text conforms, as far as practicable and
possible, with the many Uniform Acts that have
been adopted by the several states.

5. New topics have been introduced including:
Bulk Sales Law; Workmen's Compensation Acts;
United States Arbitration Act; Federal Reserve
Bank; Bankruptcy; Inter-State Commerce Act;
and reference to many United States regulatory

6. A new chapter on evidence.

7. A chapter on investments and speculation. In
the light of high-power salesmen, this is an im-
portant chapter.

8. New forms are introduced, including correctly
drawn checks, voucher checks, trade acceptance,
chattel mortgage, notes, coupons, etc.

9. Commercial Law is treated as a social science.
The discussions include not only legal questions,
but deal with problems of business practice,
economics, and government.

10. Tlie preparation of a reference book that is
a guide for teaching the subject, as well as a
source book for the aid of the teacher.

In a letter recently received from Mr. Herbert J. Foelber. Luther Institute, Fort Wayne. Indiana. Mr. Foclber says:
"The author hnn mncle a noticeable advance toward his objective if the development of cautious and deliberative study in
the student is his Koal. The accurate inductive method pursued and the clear and concise statement of IcKal principles em-
hoflie<i in the work are worthy of commendation. It is refresh inff to note the abstr.ict of actual cases which found a place in
the iKKik. To me they always s»mcd to be the cases in the field of law. Contracts. ncKotiahle instruments, sales, apency,
aiul iiartncrship. subjects which should be emphasized in a commercial law course, come in for the special attention which
they deaorvc."

These new features added to an already popular text, make Whigam's Essentials of Commercial
Law the outstanding book in its field.
