60 STUDENTS MATRICULATED IN FIRST 30 DAYS AT
DIXIE BUSINESS COLLEGE
ATLANTA'S MODEL TRAINING SCHOOL.
We, the Dixie’s proprietors, extend our cordial thanks for the loyal support of our students, many of whom have either followed us
to our new home or sent their brothers, sisters and friends. : —~——
We are now reaping the reward of our former years of patient and earnest efforts while in charge of the Bookkeeping and Shorthand
Departments of Atlanta’s HITHfERTO most representative business school, and which are now being exploited by* our former employers
for the purpose of attracting patronage.
We . want the public to know that the Dixie’s proprietors are not new men in their chosen profession, but have for years been the
main “men behind the guns” in the South’s largest Business College. *
. The majority of those students referred to and whose pictures appear in the full page advertisement of one of our competitors, have
been trained by the Dixie’s proprietors, and their letters of endorsement of the school' in question are many of them out of date.
We have transferred our courses, in much improved form, to the Dixie. We do not charge exorbitant prices for our tuition, as we
- do our own teaching and no not have to employ large numbers of cheap instructors. ——-i— -
We have an absolutely practical course in Bookkeeping and Banking to supplement such systems as the 20th Century and Modern
Illustrative, which are intended merely for elementary purposes.
Our Full Twelve Months* Combined Bookkeeping and Shorthand Scholarship is $70.00^ — c— x
Our rate in either one of the above courses is $45.00. ' •
- We prefer our monthly plan, however, of ten dollars per month for any or all courses of study. This we believe to be the fairest
proposition for the student, who can, if dissatisfied, transfer his attendance to another school.
We do not hide behind religious phrases in writing to prospective students when referring to our competitors in order to create an im
pression upon the unwary, of our piety and superior merits. . ■
The Dixie Business College is the most elegantly equipped, the best lighted and the most centrally located busi
ness training school in the city.
