find the things that need to be done
in one's everyday work or life, but
one must also have the energy and the
courage to go ahead and do them
without some one else having to tell
or show him.

Employers and the world want and
need self-starters — leaders, execu-
tives! To get into that class merely
requires thinking — serious, deep
thinking — backed by sane planning
and definite action.

The Door of Opportunity is open to
all who are willing to observe these
simple principles and be governed ac-

Lessons in Knifemanship and Carving



By FRANK A. KRUPP

Interstate Business College, Fargo, North Dakota



No. 6



This design is similar to the designs
in other lessons. The flower will re-
quire special attention. The petals
are cut and rolled in towards the cen-
ter. A gauge is a good instrument
to use.

If you do not succeed the first time
try again.

Send your design to us for sugges-
tions and help.

Economic Geography For Secondary
Schools, by Charles C. Colby, Profes-
sor of Geography, The University of
Chicago, and Alice Foster, Instructor
in Geography, University of Chicago
High School. Published by Ginn and
Company, Chicago, 111. Cloth cover,
620 pages.

The plan of the book and the material selected
in this text were subjected to the acid test of class-
room use as the prdject advanced by slow stages
from teaching outlines through original copy and
mimeographed editions to its final form. The ma-
terial is adapted to either the method of day-to-day
assignment or a program of directed study. The
presentation is simplified and achieves the objective
of giving the pupil a working knovvlcdee of the
commercial world. Each region is treated through
its leading commodity or industry. An elaborate
illustrative scheme includes many new and inter-
esting pictures to aid the pupil in visualization.
Many instructive maps and diagrams were made
especially for this book.



Outline on Thrift Education, by

Florence Barnard. Published by the
New England Publishing Co., 6 Park
St., Boston, Mass. Obtainable through
the American Association for Eco-
nomic Education, 9 Park St., Boston,
Mass. Paper cover, 64 pages.

This Outline affords a suggestive foundation and
background for training in this field. It leaves the
teacher free to experiment and originate methods
of presentation for which he or she may be specially
qualified. The ethical theme suggested for each
year is made the focal point around which the
teaching of the year is centered. In this way,
all-round and balanced character development re-
sults in the course of the twelve years. Stories
and exercises from other text books, suited to the
age and understanding of the children in each
grade, are helpful for reference.

Handy Office Book of System, Form
and Method. Published by The Ronald
Press Company, New York, N. Y.
Cloth cover, 277 pages.

This book is designed to be a valuable right-hand
assistant in the day's work of practically any man
in business, presenting information that is con-
stantly needed, in instantly usable form.

Suppose, for instance, a man has to work with
accounting records, with- balance sheets or profit
and loss statements. Or that he has to accumulate
and file credit information, run a collection system,
or plan collection letters. The HANDY OFFICE
BOOK is full of practical working points of con-
stant help to him.

Or suppose a man must work with contracts
or legal points in business; the HANDY OFFICE
BOOK will help him avoid pitfalls in his company
or personal affairs. Perhaps he must make cal-
culations of interest, percentages, discounts, ratios,
or turnovers. He will find instant answers to his
questions in this handy volume. If he must design
forms, or lay out better systems for handling work,
he will find suggestions, good ideas, and guidance



For in this volum<
mediately at hand the benefits of years of ex-
perience, of access to the best methods that have
been developed. Planned and compiled by our
Editorial Staff, it has taken months of effort to
design the HANDY OFFICE BOOK, to gather
material. And back of that is years of work by
hundreds of men in finding the best way, the right
answer to each of a thousand practical business
questions.

The HANDY OFFICE BOOK is not concerned
with long theoretical discussion, but gives a final
answer — with working form, necessary definitions
of terms, tables, charts, rules, checks, short cuts,
and practical suggestions on each point. Not a
book to read, but a manual for constant reference.
For an astonishingly small outlay, it makes avail-
able immediate answers enabling the reader to make
quick decisions, know where he stands, or to
handle matters of detail by efficient organization
and system.

Money Management, by Florence
Barnard. Published by the New Eng-
land Publishing Co., 6 Park St., Bos-
ton, Mass. Obtainable through the
American Association for Economic
Education, 9 Park St., Boston, Mass.

Money Management Method, the Steering-gear
of Personal and Family Finance, is published Book
1 for boys and girls of grades 5, 6, 7 and 8;
Book II for high school and college students and
adults. It -has been found by experimentation in
the Public Schools of Brookline, Mass., that money
management is a practical application of arithmetic
tn a life situation; that it cultivates habits of ac-
counting useful in a business career and in home
management; that it is a means of testing character
qualities, and reveals tendencies of mind, by early
recognition and treatment of which, may prevent
many a life tragedy. The main object in the teaching
of money management is to help youth to gain a
discriminating sense of values and the power of
self-control by knowing first, how to control money
uses through Budgeting, and second, to control
money reserves through Banking or safe investing.
The study and practice in schools and homes of the
few simple principles which underlie successful
money management cannot fail to insure financial
independence for individuals and families.

tion will be glad to send you further information.

Your experiences may be valuable to others. Let
s have them. Many compliments have been re-
jived about the inspiring articles published. Give
sme one a chance to say the same of yours. Editor



Of all the requirements that go in-
to the public school curriculum, pen-
manship is the most essential. One
of the requirements of every teacher
should be a certificate of proficiency
in penmanship. Penmanship is more
universally employed in all profes-
sions and occupations than any other
qualification, however simple or tech-
nical. It is indispensable to the em-
ployer and the employee, whether col-
lege president or digger of ditches;
and be it crude or highly skillful, the
fact still remains that it is a NECES-
SITY."

The above was received from C. C.
Steed, penman in the Bowling Green
College of Commerce, Bowling Green,
Ky. Mr. Steed expects to complete
work for an A. B. degree this coming
June. It is quite a grind for one to
complete work for a degree and at the
same time teach school, but Mr. Steed
is glad that he has undertaken this
important task. He is a very skillful
penman, an efficient teacher, and a
man with high ideals.



A. B. Tolley, Washington, D. C,
whose lettering, script and engrossing
work has appeared in The Educator
from time to time has been an en-
grosser in the White House for nine-
teen years. His work consists mainly
of writing invitations in his beauti-
ful script.

Many of the invitations are hand
written and are no doubt preserved
by the recipients who are among the
notables of many nations.

Some other engrossers in Washing-
ton employed by the government are
P. E. Strieby, R. M. Roudabush, Ervin
Davis, Harry H. Little, Charles E.
Hatten, and Miss Clydia M. Richard-
son.

The young man or woman who is
interested in pen work can profitably
study engrossing. Like in many other
things thorough training is necessary
for success.



Clyde Foster, the penmanship in-
structor of Tyler Commercial College,
Tyler, Texas, is a very dashy orna-
mental writer. Several pages of his
work have been enjoyed by us re-
cently.



CONFERENCE ON BUSINESS
EDUCATION

The Third Conference on Business
Education will be held at the Uni-
versity of Chicago on June 27 and 28,
1935, under the auspices of the School
of Business. The subject will be Busi-
ness Education and Money Manage-
ment, a topic of great interest to
teachers and school administrators at
the present time.

Important educators, economists,
and business men will take part in
the program. Opportunity for dis-
cussion will be provided at the reg-
ular meetings. The Conference will



be closed by a jury panel summary
and recommendations. Two informal
luncheons will be held at Judson
Court.

The Conference on Business Edu-
cation held last June drew 245 persons
from 33 different states. We hope to
make this year's Conference equally
representative.
