THREE MACHINES ADDED
TO COMMERCIAL DEPT.
An Ediphone has been added to
the equipment of the commercial
department for the use of students
taking typing. It is necessary for
the pupils to become accustomed
to taking dictation by means of an
Ediphone because it trains them for
later work in an office where these
machines are used. The classes
will start immediately using the
Two mimeograph machines have
also beeii moved into the typing
room and will be put into use by
the typing and bookkeeping stu
dents. With these improvements
in the commercial department, it
is hoped that some of the difficulty
in teaching the overcrowded classes
will be eiadicated.

for such great sciences, they require
only a corner of my little house, where
they may be safely sheltered from the

I carry them with me into the field,

The party was also entertained to
quite a thrill while in Yellowstone,
when a grizzly bear attacked a ranger
right in front of them, and Miss Chaffin
confessed that in her mad effort to get
out of the tracks of the arena, she fell,
backwards over a log, probably adding
humor to the scene.
