young women. It will begin its twenty-set
enth year in September, 1!)12.

N Record of Gem City Business Col
lege in -12 Years.
One of the first men in America
to recognize the value of training in
actual business methods to the young
man or woman starting out in com
mercial life was D. L. Musselman, of
Quincy, 111. Accordingly, Mr. Mus
selman began working upon a plan
for a school which should furnish
tli is professional skill, heretofore
achieved only at the price of a long
and unprofitable apprenticeship. The
result was the Gem City Business
College, founded by him in Quincy
shortly after the close of the war.
This school was merely the forerun
ner of the vast system of commercial
colleges found in this country today,
for in this phase of education Amer
ica has led the world.
Mr. Musselman was made presi
dent of the new institution, a posi
tion which lie held until seven or
eight years ago, when, because of his
advanced age, he retired from active
life and was succo ded by his eldest
son. u. Li. .Miisseiman, jr. ai me
same time his second son, V. G. Mus
selman, became secretary of the col
lege. Last July the youngest son, T.
E. Musselman, became associated
with his brothers in the active man
agement of the school.
During more than forty-two years
of existence the college has trained
more than 35,000 men and women
and its present enrollment is nearly

So it is in business, in the supplying of our
daily material needs. The most efficient meth
od is the method of co-operation. Some of the
biggest businesses building today are co-operative.
But even where it is not a question of
size, there is the question of real service. Ac

The store was organized by students.
It is managed by students through their direc
tors who are elected in open mass meeting.
Four of the directors are students; the other
five are elected from the faculty. No profits
are to be made. The aim is to run as close
ly to cost as possible. This policy bene
fits the students in two ways: it gives them
books at the lowest possible price; it compells
the other fellow to give reasonable prices also.
