"READING BUSINESS" MR.WM. H. INGERSOLL, Marketing Manager of Robt. H. Ingersoll & Bro. / W ILLIAM H. INGERSOLL, Marketing Manager of Robert H. Ingersoll & Bro., the makers of the watch that "made the dollar famous," came to our office a while ago with Mr. R. A. Givaudan, the Auditor of his Company. "Mr. Givaudan has seen the light," said Mr. Ingersoll. "He is ready to take up your Modern Business Course and Service. Further more, I am going to start the reading again and go through your Course from beginning to end with Mr. Givaudan. "There is a lot of valuable business knowledge scattered here and there, but it's of little use to a business man until it is put into a systematic, digestible form. That's what your Course does. You make it possible to 'read business' in the same sense that a man can 'read law.'" Mr. Ingersoll himself subscribed for the Course and Service in February, 1910. He has had over four years in which to test its value to him in his business. All over the country, progressive and far-sighted business men are doing just what Mr. Ingersoll and Mr. Givaudan are doing. They are following with eager interest the Modern Business Course and Service. These men realize that the knowledge they can get from their own personal expe. rience is too narrow to enable them to make the best use of their abilities. In the Modern Business Course and Service they are getting the collected experience and ideas of thousands of successful business men, organized in a form to be easily grasped. The authority behind the work is shown by the Advisory Council, the five members of which are: JOSEPH FRENCH JOHNSON, D.C.S. FRANK A. VANDERLIP, LL.D . Dean of the New York University School President of the National City Bank of of Commerce, Accounts and Finance. New York. ELIJAH W. SELLS, M.A ., C.P.A . JEREMIAH W. JENKS, LL.D. Senior Member of Haskins and Sells, Certi- Professor of Government, New York fled Public Accountants. University. ELBERT H. GARY, LL.D ., Chairman of the Board, U. S. Steel Corporation. If you are now holding an executive position, or ever expect to hold one, you want to hear more about the Modern Business Course and Service and what it will do for you. It is big enough for the leaders of today; it is not too big for those who hope to be numbered among the leaders of tomorrow. The secret of its power is told in our booklet, "Organized Business Knowledge," written by Joseph French Johnson. Let us send you a copy. MR. R. A. GIVAUDAN, Auditor of Robt. H. Ingersoll & Bro.
