The Educator




Children like to write greetings and send them to their relatives and friends. These words are rather hard, but
children have enough interest in them to make an effort to learn to write them. Watch the size of capitals and small
letters.



PENMANSHIP HELPED.

Since my schooling in the Zaner-
ian I have finished my college work
at Drake University and now hold
a Bachelor of Science degree in
Education with a major in Com-
merce. All along the way — in both
my teaching and office work — I have
made use of the training I received
in the Zanerian, and am very en-
thusiastic about penmanship instruc-
tion.

A Girl Who Grows Up, by Ruth Fed-
der, Guidance Counselor, The Elkins
Park Junior High School, Elkins
Park, Pennsylvania. Published by
the McGraw-Hill Book Company,
New York, N. Y.

Many volumes are at present available giv-
ng information to parents, teachers, or group
eaders about problems of the teen-age girl.
There are few that have been written for the
jiri herself. The author of this book is an
ndividual who knows girls, because she has
ived and worked with them. Miss Fedder
ipeaks out of a very practical and tested
experience with girls and a sound knowledge
>f the psyrholnpy und< rlying the behaviour
nanift'stations that puzzle a girl or her older
"rit-nds in the process of her growing up.

Some of the chapter heads are as follows:

business Law for Everyday Use, by

A. Lincoln Lavine, A.B., LL.B.,
J.D., Professor of Law and Chair-
man of the Law Department, St.
John's University, School of Com-
merce, Brooklyn, N. Y.; Member of
the New York Bar, and Morris
Mandel, M.B.A., Instructor in Busi-
ness Law and Accounting, New
Utrecht High School, Brooklyn, N.
V. Published by The John C. Wins-
ton Company, Philadelphia, Pa.
Cloth cover, 612 pages.

This new book is a practical text that
rien tales for the high -school student a sub-
let of vital importance in everyday life. A
)und knowledge of the fundamental princi-
les of business law is necessary, regardless
f thf student's future course in school, busi-
t'ss. tir industry. With an approach that is
livr ;ind interesting, yet also pedagogically
Tn-rt, BUSINESS LAW FOR EVERYDAY
SP: piovides that knowledge.



Built on the unit plan, each of the eighty
units represents a discussion and an explana-
tion of one definite thtme woven around a
legal maxim. Generous use is made of the
question-and-answer method, so frequently ap-
plied in law. Lists of highlights from the
unit, legal terms, queries that test student
understanding, and practical, original cases
which interpret and apply the principle
learned follow each unit. These exercises
stimulate the student's interest in the pro-
cedure of the law and challenge him to logical
and just thinking.

Teachers who prefer to present their sub-
ject by the "case method" alone will note

that there are comprehensive lists of supple-
mentary cases at the end of each chapter.
These lists also provide for individual differ-
ences. Students with a flair for business law
will find here in these supplementary cases
ample material to satisfy their demands. How-
ever, if so desired, the cases may be omitted.
yet the contents will remain adequate for all
students.

The clear, simple style is well within the
comprehension of every high-school student.
It never becomes involved or too technical as
is the case of many texts having law for
their subject.

Beautiful murals symbolic of the law. draw-
ings which interpret legal principles, and re-
productions of legal and business forms com-
prise the unusual illustrations. AJl have
definite earning value and all are in accord
with modern principles of visual education.



The Medical Stenographer, by Effie
B. Smither. Published by the
Gregg Publishing Company, New
York, N. Y. Cloth cover, 399 pages.

This book was prepared for those who
wish to learn to take medical dictation with
facility and speed. A specialized training for
shorthand writers who already are able to
write Gregg Shorthand with ordinai->' speed.
It was written by an author who was former-
ly the stenographer of a prominent physician.
and contains ( 1 ) student instructions, 1 2 )
medical word lists to preview the dictation.
(3) medical case histories in shorthand, and
(5) biographies of famous men in the field of
medicine. The meaning of all medical terms
is carefully brought out.



Rhythmic I'ypewriting Drills, by

Merla L. Reed. Published by The
Gregg Publishing Company, New
York, N. Y. Paper cover, 42 pages.

This is a supplementary typing text that
contains the procedures and exercise material
for developing metronomic and flowing rhythm
along with the regular typing instruction. The
short lessons are accompanied by instructions
to the student and an indication as to which
of the Rational Rhythm Records can be used
to the best advantage. Suitable for be-
ginning or advanced students.



Teach Your Fingers To Spell, by
Bitha Craig and Louis A. Leslie.
Published by The Gregg Publishing
Company, New York, N. Y. Paper
cover, 125 pages.

This is a new method of teaching spellings
by means of the typewriter. It is based on
the fact that when the fingers of the typist
are taught to spell they have a more tena-
cious memory than the mind. The exercises
call for the student, first, to type a selected
list of spelling words, and then to type a
meaningful paragraph in which these words
are used. While the major result is improved
spelling ability, the student's typing speed and
accuracy are improved as a by-product. The
book is spiral-bound permitting it to stand
up on the desk like an opened typing book.



Business Education, Basic Principles
and Trends, by Herbert A. Tonne.
New York University, Published
by The Gregg Publishing Com-
pany, New York, N. Y. Cloth cover,.
344 pages.

This book has been written to present an
understanding of the fundamental aspects of
business education. It may be used for a one-
st.me.ster course by giving briefer consideration
to those topics deemed less important, or may
be used as the basis for a two-semester course
by more extensive use of the review questions
and problems presented for discussion.

The first part of the book deals with the
place of business education in the secondary
school in terms of its objectives. The second
portion of the book is devoted to a considera-
tion of specific training for business occupa-
tions in the secondary school and other types
of schools giving work in business education.

Sympathetic treatment is given to the de-
velopment of business education for the con-
sumer, distributive education, general and
specialized office practice, the shift upward
of vocational training, and other progressive
attempts at improving the work of business
education. However, the difficulties in the de-
velopment of these suggestions are not mini-
mized. The criticisms of the basic program
of business education now in operation are
given full recognition ; but the continuing
efficiency and student value of the backbone
subjects of business education are made com-
pletely evident.



Vw enty Shortcuts to Shorthand
Speed, by Clyde Insley Blanchard,
Instructor in High-Speed Short-
hand, Evening Sessions, Hunter
College of the City of New York;
Holder of Gregg Official 175-Word
Medal; General Editor, The Gregg
Publishing Company. Published by
the Gregg Publishing Company,
New York, N. Y. Cloth cover,.
100 pages.

This is an informal method book on short-
hand teaching. Each of twenty fundamental
shorthand teaching principles is discussed in
an informal, detailed, and practical manner.
The teaching procedures covered are those
that occur and reoccur to the average teacher
many times in a year of shorthand teaching.
Beginning teachers and experienced teachers
alike should find possibilities for professional
improvement in this volume by an experienced
shorthand teacher.



I have been enjoying the Educator
greatly. You are to be congratulated
on the varied, interesting articles
published, and also on the splendid
services rendered the penmanship
profession through your valuable
magazine.

PENCRAFT STUDIO

On December 15, Adjutant F. O.
Anderson, Hibbing, Minnesota, opened
up the Pencraft Studio. He reports
that he has already started out with
some worthwhile orders.

Adjutant Anderson is a very skill-
ful penman as most of our readers
know. There is plenty of pen work
to do if one is qualified to do it.
Adjutant Anderson will be glad to
exchange specimens with other pen-
men and engiossers.
