TIFFIN UNIVERSITY SUMMER TERM
OPENS JUNE 5, CONTINUES TEN WEEKS,
CLOSING AUG. 12
Supplemental classes will be opened every Monday thereafter for ten consecutive weeks for those
interested in preparing for participation in the war effort by accepting employment in some industrial
war material producing plant.
Tiffin University is now a War Training Center, together with its regular graduate and degree
educational program. The college at present is training office workers for some of the largest in
dustrial war plants in the nation, some of which are in Ohio. These firms are producing and distribut
ing various types of war material such as ammunition, planes, tanks, medicinal supplies, clothing,
food, etc. to our armed forces in the training centers, and in the combat zones.
Some of these firms are placing young women high school graduates, mainly those who have had
some basic training in shorthand and typing in hi gh school on their payroll, and they are given a
refresher or advanced secretarial training at Tiffin U. to build into the higher speed levels in typ
ing, dictation taking, and transcribing rates. They are paid from $5.00 to $6.00 per day while in
training by their educational sponsor, receive free tuition, and free use of text books. The only re
quirement is that they accept employment on the successful attainment of defined standards in short
hand, transcription rating, and accuracy in typing, in the offices of their sponsors—those who paid
them while learning.
EARN WHILE YOU LEARN
High School Seniors, it is a New Day when you can enter college the Monday following your
high school graduation, receive a technical and general education that will be invaluable thru life,
give you an economic security, pay you $6.00 compensation daily while learning, give you free tui
tion, the definite assurance of pleasant employment, and a compensation of $1600 to $1800, with
excellent opportunity for promotion as merited, the day you are qualified. .The opportunity is so un
usual it seems almost fantastic.
HIGH SCHOOL COMMERCIAL TEACHERS WITH A BRIEF INTENSIVE TRAINING IN
TAKING DICTATION MAY SECURE EMPLOYMENT FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS AT $1800
TO $1960.
Reservation must be made for admission any Monday from May 22 to September 18. It is
estimated over 200 will be in attendance after June 5. START TODAY TO PLAN AND PREPARE
