"Learning shorthand can be fun, and it's certainly rewarding ... In the near future, you will use it to open doors to challenging secretarial jobs. In your middle years, you will use it for making shopping lists ... And, in your later years, it will be an invaluable key to the business world if you decide to reenter it." Junior Secretary, October 1967. P.S. Shorthand was all but dead 20 years later.
