General Pershing knew military fundamentals. That's why he was chosen to lead our expeditionary forces in France.

But with all his Army experience, Pershing realized the need for a mastery of the more recent developments of warfare.

From the moment of his arrival in Europe he has been in almost constant consultation with the great generals — Joffre, Castelnau, Foch, Haig, Petain.

From these conferences he has gained a firmer grasp of the fundamentals of war. He has learned thru them the right course to pursue--the mistakes to avoid.

Will you adopt hit-or-miss methods of gathering business information thru mere contact with your own business and with those whodirectly or indirectly may bein touch with you in your business?

Or will you parallel the course Pershing followed ?

Will you consult the great business generals and obtain a sound, solid, business training by a mastery of the fundamentals which underlie all business?

Jenks, the statistician and economist, and Joseph French Johnson, Dean of the New York University School of Commerce

General Pershing was a great soldier when he left our shores. Today he is a greater soldier. By absorbing the first-hand experiences of others he has multiplied many times his fund of military knowledge.

A short-cut to business

knowledge The Modern Business Course and Service of the Alexander Hamilton Institute presents organized business in a systematic, timesaving form,

The wisdom of Pershing's course points a strong object lesson in business.

To be a great business man requires much the same qualities as to be a great general, and there is no doubt that thoro scientific training will prove as advantageous to them as to military men.
