New System Adopted.
v A new system -of registration is
being adopted. Students are per
mitted to choose their own teachers,
hours and subjects. Each student
is expected to make out his own
program of studies, subject to the
approval of the home room teacher.
This program is to be signed by
each teacher in whose classes the
student wishes to enroll. This sys

their work when classes open Tues
day. Miss Helen Sommer, formerly a
teacher at the Columbia school, will
teach English. Miss Elsie Fisher
will teach history. Lieutenant Hill
will take Mr. VVedeking's freshman
algebra classes, and Miss Drake, a
graduate of Smith college, will teach
the classes in French, taught last
semester by seven different teachers.
Miss Elizabeth Kiewit and ,Miss
Marie Coons will not be back this
. semester because of illness. Lieu
tenant Andrew Nelson has returned
to the school from the artillery serv
ice. Miss Katherine H. Hilliard has

last fall and will teach in the junior
English classes. Mr. Louis Bexten

It brought uniform neatness and speed, and made possible a daily

With Burroughs Ledger Posting Machines, either card or loose leaf ledgers may
be used. The machine prints dates and amounts, extends the balance at the touch of
a button, and gives a speedy and accurate proof of the work.
The Paxton-Gallapher Co. is only one of many Burroughs Bookkeeping Machine
users and boosters in Omaha. We can give -you some very interesting information
about the work of these machines, and show you how the machine-posting method
can be applied to the bookkeeping work in your own office at a saving for your com

study the way your work is handled, and then draw up a definite outline of what the
Burroughs Machine can do for you.
If the machine cannot save you time and money, our representative will tell you
so. If it can, he will show you where and how.
