[n nearly every magazine you pick up today you will find Script headings, both in the advertisements and in the
irticles. Some of this work is good and some is very poorly executed. There is a splendid field for penmen along
this line.

This type of work is prepared in a different way from the ordinary work of a penman. It is all carefully drawn
out with a lead pencil and inked in. This we call pencilling. First of all rule head and base guide lines for both
capital and small letters, and then draw slant lines. The letters are then very carefully pencilled in. It is well
to use a rather hard lead pencil and a lead pencil eraser. Erase and repencil until you get your letter forms ac-
lurate, watching of course, the general appearance, spacing, height of lines, etc. Ordinarily in this work you have
a very definite amount of space to cover and it is necessary to make your woi'k fit into that space. After the work
is carefully pencilled proceed to ink it in with a stitf pointed pen. The point should be as coarse as the hair line
which you desire. As a rule the hair lines of this work for newspapers and magazines are rather heavy. Go
through and ink in all of the straight lines first or all of a certain type of stroke like the upward strokes. Turn the
paper frequently so that all strokes are made toward the center of the body.

After you have inked in the entire specimen look at it carefully for irregularities in weight of line, roughness and
flat places. These can be corrected with a fine pointed pen.

You can make a living at penmanship but it is necessary to do many classes of pen work. This is a very profitable
line of work for penmen.

Study the above design. It is quite attractive yet it has the appearance of a free hand specimen.

This model business writing was prepared by Parker Zaner Bloser. You will do well to study the uniformity of this;
work such as the slant, height, spacing and smoothness of the lines. We would suggest that you practice on indivi-
lual words, making line after line of one word at a time comparing your efforts with the specimen.

The Educator



After all is said and done, nearly
j'veryone who achieves success in any
line or form does it through service.
Take the office boy: If he does his
work well, if he renders exceptional
;ervice, he is invariably promoted to
i better job. The same thing applies
;o the clerk, the bookkeeper, the sten-
ographer, the secretary, the account- ,
;int, or anyone else.

j Yes, the one who does a good job.
in the job he has, is usually promoted
jto a better job. There are two rea-
130ns for this:

! In the first place, by rendering good
service in any one job, it shows that
the individual has ability and can be
depended upon. In the next place,
those at the top are gradually "pass-
ing out of the picture," which means
ithat those below have to be pushed
jup to take the place of those above.

I The exceptions to the latter are
those who fail to measure up; who
fail to fill their present positions as
efficiently as they should.

i To win promotion or achievement,
or to be successful, one only has to be
'a little better than the other fellow —
not necessarily a lot better, but just
a little better. This merely reauires
a little more thinking, a little close)'
application, plus the light attitude, of
course, and, at least, a little vision
or ambition. People do not get ahead
in the world — do not achieve success
— unless they can see ahead, unless
they are at least a little optimistic
and enthusiastic, and unless they
I really want to get ahead; in other
) words, are ambitious.

I If you will look around you — if yoLi
will study successful people in all
'line? — you will invariably rbserve that
jthe ones who are making good, and
who go the farthest, are those who

had the ambition — the desire, deter-
mination, and persistence — to want to
get ahead. They wanted the things
that hard work or close application
invariably bring. They put a little
more into whatever they attempted to
do — a little more effort, plus enthusi-
asm; and they persisted when ob-
stacles got in their way. Many times
they made their opportunities — and
they "over-came" the things that got
in their way!

Most of us think of success as
meaning a good job and the accumula-
tion of material things. That's all
right, because jobs and material things
are essential — if one is to contribute
his share of money, as well as his tal-
ents, to the church and to society or
the community. But it must be re-
membered that to get a good job, or
work up to one — to acquire material
things — one must first WANT them.
It is a natural law that the more Wc*
want a thing the harder we will try
to get it. The important thing is to
set a high goal — to try to achieve
higher or bigger things. Once that
has been done, one will usually put
forth the necessary effort to acquire
the skill, training, knowledge, or abil-
ity to achieve such ambitions.

Aftei- all. the bigger position one
attains in his organization or in the
community, the greater his opportun-
ity for service; and the greater ser-
vice one renders, the farther he is
certain to get or go in the world.

"Success through service!" That
should be the slogan of everyone who
has any ambition to be successful or
to earn a worth-while place for him-
self in the world. It can be done!
It is just a matter of ambition and
perseverance! Build a reputation for
not only knowing how to do or wh-rit
to do. but also for being dependable,
and success will, naturally, crown
vour efforts!

Primary pupils will enjoy the handwriting lesson more if the lesson is about things with which they are familiar
Many pupils have helped to raise chickens and a discussion on hens will get most children to take part in the hand
writing freely. They will want to tell in writing what they know about hens.

The teacher should write the copy on the board, demonstrating movement and teaching form. In presenting the
above copy be sure to give special attention to the new and difficult letters. This will depend upon what you have
previously taught. In this copy, no doubt, the H would be the letter to receive special attention. Notice that there
are two capital H's and two small h's. In what way do the two letters resemble each other in movement? Both come
to a stop on the base line before making the finishing part. These are i-ed light traffic signals. The first part of
the capital H should be made with a full size cane handle like in K and M. Be sure you leave room on the curved
handle for the hand. In teaching this lesson try to make the lesson interesting.

After the sentence and the words which compose it have been studied, the pupils may compose their own sentences.
This work, of course, is directed by the teacher.

All work should be done with a pencil with a large lead on paper ruled the long way about one-half or three-eighths I
inch apart. Never permit small cramped writing.

Pupils should be encouraged to use the blackboard. New and difficult letters may first be practiced on the board.
In addition to the teacher trying to make the primary lesson interesting, she should practice so that she can write
a very fine copy for the pupils.

If the teacher will practice the above copies using pencils with large lead and will send work to us, we shall be glad
to give some free criticisms.

Importance of Handwriting in Business

By prominent business men controlling employment departments of large concerns.

Quotations from li-ttcis from men who are directing
some of America's largest industries and institutions
collected by Cameron Beck, Director of New York Stock
Exchange Institute for the National Education Associa-
tion Convention, Department of Business Education.
In preparing his paper, "The Need of Closer Relation
Between Commercial Schools and Business," to be pre-
sented before the N. E. A., Mr. Beck asked the coopera-
tion of Personnel Directors and others who aie respon-
sible for employment and training of employees for sug-
gestions based on their experience in working with the
product of Commeicial Schools.

The letters received were extremely interesting and help-
ful to those training commercial students. They covered
all phases of commercial subjects and the qualifications
for business positions.

The Educator was especially interested in the importance
laid to good handwriting. Throughout the letters fre-
quent references were made to penmanship. We take
pleasure in quoting some of the references to handwrit-

Mr. E. Pasalli, Jr.,

Personnel Department,

Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co.,

Eastern Division, Newark, N. J.

"It has been our experience that Stenographers
and Typists who have had no other business train-
ing outside of that included in their High School
Course, are as a class deficient in English, Spell-
ing, Penmanship and Arithmetic."

Mr. F. J. Steinebrey,

Junior Vice-President of a large

Pacific Coast Insurance Company.

The three "R's" should be the foundation through-
out the entire high school period, and that the
three "R's"' are absolutely essential if they are to
rise above the average.

Mr. William J. Radcliff,
Employment Manager and Paymaster,
Henry Disston & Sons, Inc.,
Philadelphia, Pa.

Mr. Radclifl sums up the situation by stating: "In
our opinion, the Commercial Schools can better
prepare their students for the business world as

1. By giving due consideration to penmanship
since we notice a decline in this old fundamental
of business education.

2.. By actual practice in teaching the use of mod
em Office Equipment.

.3. By not specializing too much but generalizing
as much as time will permit."

Mr. S. C. Haver, Jr.,

Supervisor of Employment,

Southern California Edison Company, Ltd.,

Los Angeles, Calif., writes:

"I still feel that we should emphasize the fact thatj
high school graduates should be well grounded in
the '.3 R's." The tendency in late years has been
to devote too much time and attention to frills and
specialization and not enough to fundamentals."

Mr. H. T. Hamilton,

Assistant to the President,

The New York Trust Company, Ij

New York, N. Y.

He believes "Good handwriting should be stressed j
in all commercial high schools. It seems to me |
that great confusion has been caused by adopting j
a number of different systems for teaching hand-
writing, few of which are effective with the aver-
age student.

"Handwriting is still fundamental for the young
man in the business world: it may be the deciding
factor in securing his first position; it is almost
indispensable in the early years of his work; and
is a good sound asset at all times."

Specimen for supplementary practice written by F. B. Courtney of Detroit, Michigan.


Mr. J. H. Bachtenkircher. one of
Lafayette's most widely traveled and
Tiiost successful fishermen, has de-
veloped a very practical way to tell
fish stories. Last summer while fish-
ing at Medicine Lake Lodge, Three
Lakes, Wisconsin, Mr. Bachtenkircher
sent some choice wall-eyed pike to his
friends in Lafayette, and elsewhere.
Mr. Bachtenkircher, who is Penman-
ship Instructor in the Lafayette Pub-
lic Schools goes all over the country
in pursuit of his favorite sport. He
has fished in Georgian Bay, Colorado,
Minnesota, and Floiida, and invariably
makes record catches.

The Educator has Mr. Bachtenkir-
cher on its mailing list and we hope
Mr. Bachtenkircher will have The Ed-
ucator on his mailing- list the next
time he has a record catch.
