THE OREGON STATESMAN, SALEM, OREGON. TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 1, 1928
1 at SHS to Spend Half
Day in Offices
Monday morning saw t,be open
ing of the annual PPrnt,cesh,Prment
work of seniors In the commercial
,1" department of the Salem high
- - school, announces Merritt Darts,
i head of the department.
Which means that, continuing
' until the end of the school year,
5 commercial seniors will spend half
f of each day working In a number
of the local business offices and
- the other half In the class room.
It has become a custom of the
department to tend forth its sen
; lors that they might gain some
actual experience before gradna-
- firm davs arrive and they are
thrown entirely upon their own re
sources in the business world.
The young stenographers and
bookkeepers work the half day
without monetary stimulus. No
charge is made for their services.
the experience gained being ac
counted sufficient reward, says
vv-The arrangement, which . has
been, approved by the leading bnsi-
, ness and professional men of the
city, has a two-fold purpose: to as
sUt the business men tn choosing
an office assistant, and to provide
practical experience for the stu-
- dent. It Is the practice of a number
- - of local firms to add one or more
n ' of the graduating students to their
staffs each spring, among which
business houses are the United
States National bank, Ladd ft Bash
bank, Pa turn's book store and the
Morris Optical company.
Any Salem business man who
would like to have a part time
stenographer, bookkeeper or sales
person, either In the forenoon or
afternoon, should get in touch
with Mr. Davis at the high school
and arrangement will be made for
him to call and select one of the

pressions of commendation for his
plan, as this time of year is op
portune for the students to give
considerable assistance to their
There will be approximately 65
graduates in the commercial cour-
' ses this year, just tiwec as many
. students as were enrolled in the
. entire department when Mr. Davis
took charge 17 years ago, he te
. marked. Now 45 per cent of the
high school enrollment is taking
4 courses in the commercial depart
4 .tnent and the course has grown so
.: that it keeps nine teachers (one
more thajnast year) bust full time
to cover the work.
The loca? department is rated
by Mr. Walker, president of
Behnke-Walker business college of
Portland as the strongest high
school. department ln the north
west. Another Indication of the
thoroughness of instruction may
be seen la the fact that the com
mercial department of Oregon
state college rates the work done
here as equal to junior college
The course is so complete, that
, unless students wish to specialize
in particular branch of commerce
' they go into the business ranks
right from high school. That the
high school commercial graduates
-ire successful is attested In a re
, cent list of former students com
piled by Mr. Davis and his assist
ants. It is but a partial list, show
ing what students who have grad
uated within the last 10 years are
doing. With but three exceptions
the students on the partial list
stepped into jobs with no prepara
tion beyond the local courses.
The list, to which Mr. Davis
points with pride, contains the
following: ; T
