(a.) Germany, which is situated in the middle of Europe, is about as large
in area as the State of Texas, but its population is almost three-
quarters that of the United States. There is no real boundary
between the northern and southern parts of Germany, but the
territory south of the Main is usually called South Germany. In
this region there are many quite-high mountains, but in North
Germany there are very few. There are many political boundaries
within Germany, but all the different States are united into one
federal State. The City of Berlin is the most important of all the
German Cities, not only on account of its size, but also because it
is the capital of the whole country.
24 (ft.) Travelling is much cheaper in Germany than in America.    Most people
travel third class and although the seats are wooden and not upholstered, it is quite comfortable, especially if one takes an express
which does not stop at all the small stations. If one is hungry,
one can buy rolls and coffee from one of the waiters who run up
and down the station platforms with their wares. There are
many historic towns and castles to visit, where one can hear
interesting stories about the famous people who once lived there,
as, for example, the stories that are told of Luther's stay in the
Wartburg. Travellers find most interesting, perhaps, the lovely
trip down the Rhine, on both sides of which tower up the
picturesque ruins of ancient castles from out the green vineyards.

30       2.  (ft.)"Analyse  and  discuss  the  following  paragraph  as  to  unity,   coherence,   and
Again, they tell me that So-and-so, who does not write prefaces is no
charlatan. Well, I am. I first caught the ear of the British public on
a cart in Hyde Park, to the blaring of brass bands, and this not at all as
reluctant sacrifice of my instinct of privacy to political necessity, but
because, like all dramatists and mimes of genuine vocation, I am a
natural-born mountebank. I am well aware that the ordinary British
citizen requires a profession of shame from all mountebanks by way
of homage to the sanctity of the ignoble private life to which he is
condemned by his incapacity for public life. Thus Shakespeare, after
proclaiming that not marble nor the gilded monuments of Princes should
outlive his powerful rhyme, would apologize, in the approved taste, for
making himself a motley to the view; and the British citizen has ever
since quoted the apology and ignored the fanfare. When an actress
writes her memoirs, she impresses on you in every chapter how cruelly
it tried her feelings to exhibit her person to the public gaze; but she
does not forget to decorate the book with a dozen portraits of herself.
I really cannot respond to this demand for mock-modesty. I am ashamed
neither of my work nor of the way it is done. I like explaining its
merits to the huge majority who don't know good work from bad. It
does them good: and it does me good, curing me of nervousness, laziness,
and snobbishness. I write prefaces as Dryden did, and treatises as
Wagner, because I can; and I would give half a dozen of Shakespeare's
plays for one of the prefaces he ought to have written. I leave the
delicacies of retirement to those who are gentlemen first and literary
workmen afterwards.   The cart and trumpet for me.
(b.) Rewrite the following paragraph so as to improve its coherence and emphasis:—
In many ways a large correspondence is a great benefit to a person, but it
may also be considered a great burden. It is always a pleasure to
receive letters from friends, but to most people it is not such an easy
task to answer them. In getting letters we often receive information
which we should not otherwise obtain. In writing to some people it is
very hard to make the letter interesting as very little is held in common
between the people. Yet the letter may be interesting, as neither of
them know what to expect. Writing letters of this sort is perhaps the
best practice as so much thought has to be given to the composition. On
the other hand a large correspondence requires a great deal of time,
which in many cases might be spent more profitably. Oftentimes letters
are written hurriedly no thought being given to the punctuation or
spelling and the substance of the letter is very little considered. Letter-
writing, then, may be made profitable and it is very good training when
care is taken in the writing and thought given to the composition.

The New Conception op Advertising :   Service to the Public.
The Old Conception. Formerly advertising was a feature of business of
interest mainly to the person who had merchandise to sell, or to the
newspaper or magazine that might profit by printing the advertisement.
The manufacturer could sell his product but slowly in most cases without sending out advance information concerning it, and the storekeeper
or other retailer felt compelled by self-interest to make his wares
known by every possible means. The periodical press gradually
readjusted itself to the changing conditions and demands of business
and thereby gained a new and important means of revenue. The
buying public was regarded chiefly as a source from which money
could be drawn by enticing and frequently misleading and false statements about articles of merchandise. This fact has become so fixed
• in the public mind that even the most conservative and legitimate
forms of publicity have often suffered from the disfavour brought upon
this division of business by advertising methods in the past.
The Changing View. Within recent years, however, with the changing
ideas upon community service, marked by modern philanthropy, the
new education, and growing co-operation in the business world, a new
conception of advertising has arisen. The progressive merchant no
longer thinks merely of a certain volume of business to achieve, a
definite profit upon his investment, or the fame of leading in his line
in the trade of the community. He has come to realize that the buyer
is entitled to know the truth about the goods which are offered for
sale, that fair prices and substantial values, with honest statements
in advertising, bring the best good to both buyer and seller. Many
of the most worthy and successful manufacturers and merchants of
recent years have built their success upon this principle. These are
the conservative men of trade, in reality men of progress and leadership, men who set the standard of publicity and business methods.
Advertising, therefore, a Service to the Public Advertising holds its
place unquestionably side by side with the news of the day. As the
news gatherer and publisher strive to collect and disseminate reliable
and accurate information about current events, about the world of
men and things, so the modern advertiser tries to inform the reader
where to find the most desirable merchandise most easily and at the
right prices.    And the average reader, the busy worker hurrying to his C 174 Public Schools Report. 1922
factory or shop in the morning, the home maker who has but a limited
time to spend at the store, and all who must buy with a strict economy
of time and money are consciously indebted to the honest advertiser
of the necessities of life. His service to the individual and to the community should be computed not only in dollars and cents but in terms
of contentment and prosperity. He contributes to the general welfare.
Moreover he has a high duty so to contribute, as has the lawyer,
physician, or other professional man who lives by the patronage of
the commmunity and who must give his best service in return, under
recognized ethical standards.
Moreover, the service of advertising is not confined to the world of trade.
There are innumerable good causes which must ever depend upon the
best and most skilful methods of publicity for their success and usefulness to mankind.

The Element of Chance in Business Reading.
The head of the public library in a big steel-making community in western
Pennsylvania met the chief chemical expert of a huge rolling mill one
day not more than a year ago. The librarian was fairly expert himself on the theory of the making of steel, and to him the chemist
confided some of the details of an important new experiment that he
had just finished.
" It must have cost the firm something to put through that experiment,"
ventured the librarian.
" In fairly exact figures, something like $ 10,000," the chemist replied.
The librarian smiled.
" That entire experiment was made in Europe some years ago; and with
precisely the same results," said he. " The whole thing, right down
to the fine details, is on the shelves of our library. You might have
saved a lot of time and money."
What was this f 10,000 paid for? The experiment, or for not knowing that
the experiment had already been made?
Is not this little story, told by Edward Hungerford in System, the same
kind of story that could be told of experiments made from time to
time in every business, if the facts were known?

Individuality in Weiting.
" It is often said that there is no individuality in muscular movement penmanship.
The term individuality has been very carelessly used in regard to Writing and is
used to describe what should really be termed illegible or merely poor writing.
Muscular Movement Writing can be distinguished from Finger Movement Writing
by its legibility, freedom, and grace. If individuality is the antithesis of these
characteristics, one need not be disturbed by the argument that Muscular Movement
Writing lacks individuality. The demands of the social and economic world are for
the former rather than the latter. As well might we plead for individuality in
Spelling and Arithmetic.
" Yet to the student of good penmanship there is ample opportunity for observing
individuality in Muscular Movement Writing just as the expert in Animal Husbandry
can see individuality in prize Jersey cows, which to the layman all look alike, simply
because they all bear the same general characteristics of excellence.
" Regarding Individuality in Writing—Mr. F. B. Courtney, the famous handwriting legal
expert and one of the best penmen in the world, says: ' Of the teeming millions on
the face of the globe, no two write alike any more than they talk or walk alike.'
" Pupils of the lower grades should learn one standard form of letter and learn to write
it well, but in the Senior Grade and High School many optional forms sheuld be
presented, from which the pupils can make their choice. They should then devote
special attention to perfecting the form selected. These optional forms should be
such as can be made quickly and rhythmically and should be simple in formation,
without any unnecessary flourishes or tails."

20 1- Toronto, Ontario, May 5, 1922. Mr. John R. Blake, Kamloops, B.C. Dear Sir : It is
very gratifying to learn from your letter of the 23d inst. that your (32) enthusiasm for the magneto in our cars is unabated. We have noted the memoranda
which you made regarding several tests of the magneto and we are glad that
everything has proved perfectly satisfactory (65) and as we represented.
We have recently had a great deal of correspondence with automobile manufacturers
throughout the country, and all of them seem to be of the opinion that our
magneto (97) ts steadily growing in favour and promises soon to be in demand
by every manufacturer of high class cars.    Yours very truly (119)-
15 2. Regina, Sask., March 12, 1921. The Pacific Trunk and Baggage Company, Nanaimo,
B.C. Gentlemen: I regret to inform you that the trunk which I purchased from
your local dealer, (32) E- Brown, June 4, 1919, has failed to live up to your
five-year guarantee. In fact, the trunk is now in such bad condition that I would
not risk it on (65) another journey.
I must therefore request that in accordance with the terms of your guarantee you
refund the purchase price of twenty-six dollars.   Respectfully yours (91)-
38 3. Victoria, B.C., October 19th, 1921. The Miller Advertising Agency, Winnipeg, Man.
Gentlemen: We have sent you under separate cover a number of the follow-up
letters that we have (32) been writing prospective purchasers about an interest
in our manufactory, which is located at Nelson, B.C. We find that these letters
are having a pretty good effect, and they seem to have (65) helped us make a
number of sales. Nevertheless, we feel that they are not worded just as they
should 'be, and that there is not the proper snap in them to make (97) them
the masterpieces that we should like.
We have to do most of our financing through the mail, and for this reason our letters
must 'be just as pulling as possible. They must (130) have snap and life in
them so that they will interest people in our project and show that there is
money to be earned by those who will make the investment. Suppose (163) y°u
get one of your most imaginative men to look over the letters and see if he can
suggest some spots where they might be brightened up a little.
We are enclosing a (195) cheque for $55.00 to cover your services rendered during
the past month. Let an invoice accompany your revision of the letters and we
will remit promptly.    Very truly yours (226)-
27 4. Vancouver, B.C., July 24, 1921. William T. Robson, Esq., Calgary, Alberta. Dear
Mr. Robson: I wonder if you are still undecided about your stand in the matter
of (32) ownership of public utilities by the municipality. We have recently
collected a great mass of data from various sources which gives the consensus of
opinion with regard to this matter. This has all (65) been boiled down until
it is not now so indigestible and we are giving you the benefit of it in the enclosed
booklet, which has just been published by the Board of (97) Trade of this city.
You will note from this that it is the undivided opinion of nearly all who have
been consulted that municipal ownership of public utilities is practically faultless.
We do (130) not know that this circular will be of interest to you, but we are glad
to accommodate you in every way possible, and we are passing it on for what
it may (162) be worth.   Yours sincerely  (166)- 13 Geo. 5 Part III.—Appendices. C 181
