Excerpt from The Business Educator

Today, young men and women, the person who succeeds must be able to do something well, willing to do it without grumbling, and then do it, whatever it is in a manner that will please the one for whom it is being done. Since all cater to some one, and in many cases to more than one, the power of pleasing others, courteously toward them, and the ability and determination to push forward, will win many seemingly hopeless battles.

Just at this time the teaching of Penmanship is occupying a great deal of the attention of educators, probably more than it ever did before. The causes leading up to this are many, and I will not take the space here to go into detail regarding them. Good teachers of Penmanship are in demand, but no more than good business writers. A teacher should know what he is going to teach, how he is going to teach it, and then teach it as if it were the only subject in the world.

Now students, you who are going to follow me in this course of lessons, I ask your co-operation, close attention to both the copy and instruction given. Go in with a determination to win. Take the copies as they are given. Stick to them until you have mastered them and the game is yours.

Materials and Position. - Foolscap paper, a medium fine pen, and black ink, are indispensable for good work. For position sit squarely facing the table. Have front edge of chair under edge of table. Sit with hips well back in chair. Lean forward, bending at the hips, and rest both arms on the table. Place the paper so that it is exactly parallel with, the right arm; then pull the bottom edge of it toward you at least two inches, so that the arm goes diagonally across the sheet. The left hand is always placed just above the writing line, so as to hold the paper down. Lean a little more on your left arm than you do on your right. Do not grip the holder. Keep the wrist almost level, and do not let it touch the desk. See that the penholder points over the right shoulder.

Lesson One.

Copy l. Direct retrace exercise. Make it two spaces high. Use a push and pull movement. No ringers. Make it rapidly. See that the arm glides in and out of the sleeve. If your shirt sleeve is tight or heavy, cut it off just above the elbow.

Copy 2. Round exercise two spaces high. Same direction, as you make capital O. Make it just as round as you can, trying to beep it regular in height and width. Use no shade.

Copy 3. Two space ovals, made one-third higher than they are wide. Same direction as capital O, and reverse. Watch right left oval in the centre. Keep your work up together in columns, so as to give it a good appearance.

Copy 4 and 5. Make from left to right, and retrace with curve. Copy 6 and 7. Given for review. Remember use no fingers.

Lesson 2.

Work hard on copy 1, six times around the loop. Copy 2. Close "O" at top, watch loop carefully, 3 and 4 make sharp at top, round at bottom. Watch spacing.
