' . !!WlL5WgBMBW .HI WW MM lJun (jT IAMB STSILIL THEY COME Hi oooooooooooooooooooooooooo Never before in the fifteen years history of the Lamson Business College were there as many young people arranging to take our spring and summer courses in Bookkeeping, Shorthand, Typewriting, Penmanship and English, and never before were we better prepared for. taking care of them. Our Faculty is larger and better than ever, and our facilities in every respect are adequate. Our Employment Bureau is getting in good shape, so much so, that we are ready now to contract to place twenty-five graduates of our combination course of Business and Sten ography during the month of September and forty during October. We will contract to place twenty such graduates each month during the year, except June, July and August. We know of one corporation that will take every such graduate that we can furnish during the next twelve months. The United States government cannot secure enough young men graduates of this course at $1,200 per year to fill its vacancies in the Philippine Islands. The Smith Premier Typewriter Co. recently wrote: "We can place in a good position every competent Smith Premier operator who will apply to us. The demand is far greater than the supply. The service of our Employment Bureau is free to all." The Remington Typewriter people are just as liberal. They placed 16,247 stenographers in only seven cities during one year,. and they say: "We never have enough compe tent ones to fill the demand." The Underwood people say: "Send us all the graduates of this course you can. We can place them." - Thus you can see besides, our own Employment Bureau and its effective work, we have the hearty co-operation of three of the leading typewriter firms of the world, which practically means that we have three agents in every city and town of importance in the civilized world who will assist in placing our students. Therefore if a graduate wishes to go to Manilla, we can send him, or if he prefers Calcutta, India, we can arrange it, or if he wants to remain in old Arizona we can assure him a good position. There is absolutely no doubt about your securing a good position if you complete this combination course. Thoroughness is, the watchword. Write today for information or can at tne college. IMPORTANT TO EMPLOYERS. So well cstablislieo" has he-corn? our reputation for thoroughness that employers desiring bookkeepers and stenographers are imposed up on by persons claiming to be graduates of our college. In every in stance the employer should demxnd to see our college diploma which is in the possession of every graduate. To even' worthy person who attends our college, if for only a few months and for any reason cannot remain until graduation, we give a certificate of standing showing the courses pursued and the grades 'made and the. general deportment of the student while in school. This is always signed by the president of the faculty. Oapt. V,. M. Lainson'. If the diploma or certificate cannot be produced it is evidence that some thing is wrong cither that the applicant ha-j never attend ed our college ?t all but is using our good mime to help secure a posi tion or el-e he has attended only a few weeks and secured only a smat tering, of principles. ft V .

His Is But the Experience of Hundreds of Others. Dear Friend: A business education secured by taking the proper courses at the Lamson Business College is the richest blessing of my life. It has enabled me to carry on business against the hard est of competition. To avoid mistakes and dilliculties arising from not being correct in my accounts. It has enabled me to secure positions that I should have been totally unfitted for. and I have derived benefits therefrom too numerous to mention. I cannot speak in too much praise of the Lamson Business College, and my advice to all young people is to try to secure a good business elucat;on there. It is something you cannot be robbed of and is a prize worth securing. Your Friend, DEE SCOTT. ANOTHER BUSINESS MAN SPEAKS OUT IN NO UNCERTAIN TERMS."

No parent will ever regret the time and money spent !n giving his children this training. Very truly yours, H. C. ORME. Began at $50 Per Month, But Now Gets $70.00. Never Out of Employment. Prof. E.

My Dear Mr." Lamson: The instruction which I received while attending your school has been of inestimable benefit to me. I am proud of my, d'plomas because the Lamson Business College issues diplomas only When the prescribed work has been performed by the student and the high standard required has been reached.

With No Previous Business Experience Our Course at Once Places Her in a Position of Absolute Independence. Gentlemen: Upon completing a course in the Lamson Business College I took charge of the books of one of the largest stores in Phoe nix. It was with hesitancy that I entered upon my duties as ! had never had any previous business experience except what I secured in the business practice department of your College. Imagine my surprise that the taking charge of this set of books was no more than the student experiences in being pro moted from one office to another in the college or from one firm to another in business. The work was identical except that the entries were not so difficult in nj,o.st cases as they were in school. , I realized at once that your cotirse had lifted me from a condition of dependence on my parents to one of independence. My experience in the College of handling the college cur rency in the Bank and other offices enabled me to attend to the duties of cashier in the store rapidly. Money could not purchase from me the knowledge I secured and the condition of independence and freedom it brought. I wish every young person cou'.d take this identical course. Very sincerely yours, ROSIE L. MOGNETT. Passes From College fo a Good Position. He Attributes His Success to The Thorough Training Received Here. Grauduated Ten Years Ago and Has Never Lost Any Time.
