EDUCATION THAT PAYS Business, Shorthand, Civil Service [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 2 May 1908
EDUCATION THAT PAYS Business, Shorthand, Civil Service Our young people trying for an education will be interested in knowing that the most careful research shows that business, shorthand and certain civil service courses constitute the training which a majority of the most successful men and women began business life and also the kind of education most used all through life—the greatest demand being for stenogaaphers, accountants, railway maifcclerks, etc., in the United States civil service.
