More than 2,000 invitations have just been sent out to the beads of corporations capitalized at $1,000,000
or more in various parts of the country by the Society Promoting Efficiency! of which James G. Cannon,
president of the Fourth National Bank,New York City, is chairman. This meeting is arranged to be held
in New York. The conference will provide a common meeting ground upon which those interested in busi
ness efficiency may become acquainted and exchange ideas. : The. Bee. mentions this fact because oi its sig
nificance at this time and to emphasize the importance of a subject which has already appeared in these columns.
It is a commonly accepted fact that a man As worth just $1.50 a day from his eyes down, but there is no
limit to his earning capacity from his eyes up. The foremost question today in American business is, "How
can the individual increase his efficiency to the highest degree? That this question is pertinent is evi
denced by the fact that, According to Bradstreet's Journal, "investigations. over a period of years have demon-,
strated that tendencies present within the individual himselfiate for four-fifths of all
business failures." That these words are not addressed to the Unsuccessful any more than those who'have
achieved success, is indicated by the fact, that the most successful business men in America will shortly arrive
in New York with no Other purpose in view. than that of increasing their personal efficiency and those upon
whom they depend for results, v ::-:::A-r ' '

"The education given by the La Salle Extension University in its course
in Business Administration could formerly only be obtained by hard knocks in
the business world. Men who are practical in their methods and who will de
vote some time to the study will find themselves equipped for a business life
far beyond their expectations. ;
Training sound pedajgogically f i
The following is extracted from a letter written by a former president of
one of the largest state universities: ? , ,f
"My investigation shows me that the La Salle Extension University is
a sound concern, and it limits itself to those fields in which work can best be
done by correspondence. The professors who have been secured to write the
text books, many of them are known to me personally, are men of the highest
rank. Their text books, prepared specially for the purpose, are extremely val
uable. The methods of the LaSalle Extension University with reference to
correspondence, help and examinations are sound pedagogically."
Service to business men confidential
The lectures, information, solution of business problems and text are
brought by mail to your home or office.
$2,000 would be a conservative estimate of the cost to ;get a modern
training in business administration at any resident university PLUS your
present earning, covering a period of about two years.
To the young man CAN YOU AFFORD THIS?
To the business man: IF YOU COULD, WOULD YOU?
The LaSalle Extension University was organized for the purpose of "tak
ing the university to the people." Former president Eliot, of Harvard, has
said the greatest need today is that of adult education.
Through The Bee's offer, this training is brought to you in the most di
rect and practical way at nominal cost. Sign the coupon and look io the
greatest opportunity that yon have yet had.
To the ambitious young man
You are looking forward to a business career. No ambitious young man
wishes to remain at a stand-stilL The only way that he caa move up is to
merit promotion. Because a young man is now occupied with the details of a
little business, or probably no business, it does not follow that five, ten or
twenty years will still find him clerking in a store or doing odd jobs around
town. The Course in Business Administration conducted by the LaSaUe Exten
sion University teaches the young man how to earn promotion and how to
fill the place higher up. Every earnest young man aspires to become known '
as a successful business man. Training today is absolutely necessary to this end.
