In 1923 Mr. and Mrs. Lewis came to
the Zanerian to specialize in penman-
ship. If we remember correctly, it was
both a pleasure and a business trip,
both preparing as Teachers of Penman-
ship while enjoying their honeymoon.

Mr. Manley M. Lewis, who is now
Director of the Commercial Depart-
ment in tlie Bellefontaine (Ohio) High
School, graduated from Bliss Business
College, Columbus, Ohio, and attended
the Ohio State University. Mr. Lewis
was formerly Head of the Commercial
Department and Supervisor of Penman-
ship in the Harbor Special Schools,
Ashtabula, Oliio, and for the past two

Mrs. M. M. Lewis

years was an instructor in the Leisen-
ring High School, Connellsville, Pa.
Mr. Lewis' slogan is "Better writing
makes better Bookkeeping." Each day
he sets aside a specified time for pen-
manship drills.

Mr. Lewis is a young man of pleas-
ing personality, and is "wrapped up"
in the teaching of penmanship and
commercial subjects.

Mrs. Lewis, as the above shows, is a
very attractive young woman. She was
the life of the social features during
the 1923 Summer School. Mrs. Lewis
is even more skillful in penmanship
than Mr. Lewis.

WHY were Johnny's exercises always so messy? He
was personally tidy, but his writing exercises were
dreadful. Finally, the teacher tested Johnny's pen — and
tne whole problem was solved! Nobody could have
written clearly with that point!

Pens that you can't depend on for uniformly good
points often work injustice. It's worth while to be sure.

The main idea of the obUque penholder is to assist in mak-
ing smooth shades. When using a straight holder it is nec-
essary to turn the hand to the left to some extent in order
that smooth shades may be made if desired. When using
the oblique holder the hand can remain in the usual and
more natural position since the pen is held by the holder
at the proper angle at which smooth shades can best be
made. Of course, it is all right to use the oblique holder
in executing unshaded writing, since very smooth lines can
be secured, but it is indispensible when executing shaded

There are numerous oblique penholders on the market today,
some of which are made by persons who, not being penmen
themselves, do not understand the requirements of correct
adjustment. It requires more than a wood-turner to pro-
duce a good oblique holder. If the adjustment is not correct
in an oblique holder, it is practically worthless as an instru-
ment for fine writing, no matter how fine the holder may be
otherwise. Many students who enter the Zanerian College
(the school of penmanship conducted by The Zaner-Bloser
Co.) bring with them ablique holders which are miserably
adjusted, and with which they have been laboring at a great
disadvantage, not knowing where the trouble lies. It is no
wonder that some persons should become discouraged with
such instruments.

In purchasing oblique penholders it is undoubtedly safest to
secure them from persons who know how to use them most
successfully, and therefore know what the proper adjustment
is. Of course, inferior holders can be sold for less money
than perfect ones, since practically no time is spent in se-
curing the proper adjustment. On each of our holders
considerable time is spent on the adjustment by one who
thoroughly understands what is best in this particular. Not
only this, but we are confident that a careful comparison of
our holders with others will reveal the fact that Zanerian
holders are also the most perfect in workmanship. We
originated and popularized the long oblique holder, and, as
was to be expected, it is being imitated.

Our oblique holders are all adjusted for ornamental pen-
manship, and intended to fit the Zanerian Fine Writer or
Gillott's Principality No. 1 pen, these two being the same
size. If a smaller pen is to be used, such as the Zanerian
Ideal, Gillott's 604, or a Spencerian No. 1, anyone can easily
contract the pen slot by pressing against it so that it will
fit these pens. If one of the long holders should draw
slighly crooked, as sometimes happens when wood is turned
so long and slender, it can be easily straightened by holding
it over a lighted lamp until the wood becomes heated, when,
if care is taken, it can be strightened without danger of

THE ZANERIAN PLAIN OBLIQUE HOLDER is a sensible, beautiful and perfect holder. It is made of rosewood, is U'A inches
