Blue Boar's popularity is ever in-
creasing. Its rare blend has won
men since your grandfather's day.
It holds top place, deservedly.
5 One man
tells another

iacts

T HERE is a great deal of misinformation
among college men concerning the bond
business. Some think it is an easy, quick way to
large earnings. Others underestimate its possibil-
ities. The truth lies in between.
Businesses differ in the kinds of ability they
require. Some men who would succeed in one line
of business would only rut themselves in others.
We discuss these things frankly with college
men who are interested in entering the bond busi-
ness--whether they are undergraduates or men
who are not satisfied with the work they have
taken up since leaving college.
Every man we employ is given several months'
training, with pay, in our bond school before being
assigned to actual work. This serves to give the
man the best chance to succeed-and it also .
protects our clientele from unsatisfactory service.
