THE MONEY AND LIFE VALUE
WHICH GROUP ARE YOU IN?
READ THESE FIGURES AND
DECIDE WHICH GROUPE
YOU WANT TO BE IN
A. Caswell Ellis, Professor of the
Philosophy of Education in the Uni-
versity of Texas, says that, “The
lar ge successes ’ attained in the
financial world by a few uneducated
men of . unusual natural endowment
have been exploited so disproportion-
ately that the true relation of educa-
tion to earning power is nor property
appreciated. With the increasing
complexity of the processes of
manufacture and trade and the ever-
widening applications of science to
industry, the possibility of large
success for the uneducated is rapidly
vanishing. Many careful studies
have been made recently of the
earning capacity displayed in actual
life work by large numbers of men
and women with different degrees of
education. The results of these
studies show beyond any question
the tremendous increase in ^ earning
power produced by education o-
According to figures compiled by
Prof. Ellis and given out by the
United States Bureau of Education,
the broader the education, the bigger
the pay ch< ck. For example, salaries
in the New York Bridge Department
in positions demanding only reading,
writing and arithmetic, average $9 82
a year. In positions demanding high
school and commercial courses the
salaries average $1,729 a year, and in
positions demanding two or three
years of college or technical educa-
tion salaries average $2,400 a year.
“But money value is not the great-
est value of education,” Prof. Ellis
says. “Education not only prepares
us to acquire physical wealth but
initiates us into the joys of the true
and lasting wealth of the mind. The
wealth added directly to the lives ot
an educated people through their
enjoyment of art, literature, music,
science, philosophy and religions is
immeasurably greater than all the
wealth of experience brought in-
directly by physical possessions.
Education widens our interests and
broadens our sympathies. Education
takes away prejudice, ugliness and
stupidity, promotes understanding
and sympathy, develops the inner
resources of the mind, and thus adds
more to human happiness, increases
our spiritual wealth more, than can
all the physical possessions of earth.”
With respect to education and
statesmanship, figures compiled by
Prof. Ellis show that less than one
per cent of American men are
college graduates, and yet the college
graduates have furnished 55 per cent
of our presidents; 3 6 per cent of the
members in Congress; 47 per cent of
or the speakers of the House, 54
per cent of the vice-presidents; 62
per cent of the secretaries of state;
50 per cent of the secretaries of
treasury; 67 per cent of the attorney
generals, and 69 per cent of the
justices of the supreme court. Fifty
per cent of the men composing the
constitutional Convention were college
Other figures compiled by Pio
Ellis show that with no schooling at
all, 31 out of 5 million people attained
distinction. With elementary school-
ing, out of 33 million, 808 attained
distinction. With high school educa-
tion out of 2 million, 1,245 attained
distinction, and with college educa-
tion, out of one million, 5,7 68 at-
The child with no schooling at all
has one chance in 150,000 of per-
forming distinguished service; with
elementary education, he has four
times the chance; with high school
education he has 800 times the
