Over 50,000 Young Men At-
: tended Y. M. C. A. Last
Year Enrollment Open
At Any Time.
Nine hundred and thirty-sevrn
students enrolled in the Y. M. C A
evening school during last season,
Thirty courses were offered. The
aggregate attendance for the year
was nearly 50,000. This is one of
the largest evening schools in this
part of the country and is attracting
8 great deal of notice on the part of
young men as well as. older men and
employers. i'lans are now being
made for the next season which will
" begin September 6. In addition to
,the courses offered last year, a course
in foremanship will be offered. This
will appeal particularly to those who
are interested in large industrial
plants and those who are looking for
ward to a foreman s position in any
organization. . 4
i Salesmanship, public speaking, ac-
, countancy, commercial law, drafting,
mathematics, advertising and elemen
tary subjects will probably be among
.the popular courses. ,
. Spare-time education is one of the
greatest opportunities for young
men. A great man has said that an
individual's success or failure de
pended on what he did with his
spare time. It can be used to pay
dividends or it can be used for mak
ing debts. f ,-w. .
r;A young man's leisure time usually
begins about 7. If .he uses it for
personal advancement and self-improvement
he will develop rapidly.
If he uses it for indulgence and phy
sical pleasure, he will not only keep
himself from advancing, but he is
likely to drop back." Most all suc
cessful men are those who have used
their leisure time for self-improvement.
; The Y. M. C. A. evening school
offers to any young man an opportu
nity for self-improvement. Make
your plans to attend school and
choose your courses early. Students
may enroll at any time.

Van Sant Placement
Bureau Shows Demand
For Trained Employes
We all know the business history
of the past year and what it has meant
to employers and employed. But let
us not close our eyes to facts on the
optimistic side, such as these:
The records of the Van Sant bu
reau show that even in the dullest
months of the past year it has aver
aged two calls daily for permanent
office workers. The best months
averaged about four calls daily. This
docs not take into consideration cans
for short-time work, from which stu
dents trained experience and revenue.
The total number of permanent calls
received was 60 per cent in excess of
the total number of students enrolled
during the year.
While all agree as to the unpre
cedented character of the past year,
all agree likewise that this condition
is but temporary, just as the abnor
mal postwar acceleration of business
was but temporary. s In order to be
able to fill the certain future increase
in calls business schools must have
an immediate increase in number of
students. Enrollment this month
means preparation for a position sev
eral months hence when conditions
will have returned to prewar condi
tions of healthy, normal prosperity.
With the. poorest year in history
Placement Bureaus providing a 60
per cent margin of safety of employ
ment, young men and women will
readily recognize that with increas
ingly better conditions ahead they
cannot make a better investment of
time and money than in securing the
training which will insure a well-paid
position for them and a - competent
worker for some employer of the

1 Solve Problem
Omaha Institution Plans to
Assist Backward and Shy
Pupils by Individual
Are the parents of Omaha per
plexed about the selection of a school
for their childen in September? Do
your boys and girls require a tutor
to "keep up" in class? Do they
learn how to study? At the School
of Individual Instruction, 3507 Har
ney street, these problems are all
solved. This institution is a non
sectarian school for boys and girls
and features intensive study, short
hours, carefully supervised study and
play periods, luncheon service and
proper individual attention.
That the restriction in the number
of pupils in a class be made small as
convenient, is an established factor
in the education of the child. At the
School of Individual Instruction the
classes never contain over 10 pupils.
The conclusion is logical that chil
dren can grasp more in a class of
this size than they can in a class
numbering 40. Many times the child
is bright but shy and backward.
Such a child will be greatly helped
by individual encouragement. This
has made bright and energetic stu
dents out of what appeared to be dull
"Every child recites every day," is
the motto of the school. The cur
riculum for the year includes first
and second years of high school,
grammar, primary and kindergarten.
