Purpose of this Course of Lectures The ever widening service of education is bringing vital opportunities to teachers and other educated leaders in community activities. Detailed instructions have been lacking in the field of event-management. The wide experience of thirty years on the lecture platform together with an intimate connection with educational institutions has enabled Mr. Ott to develop a practical series of lectures for the guidance of teachers, superintendents and community workers. The Art of Living Lectures SERIES No. 3 Vital Popular Themes Given singly or in series for Colleges, Normal Schools and Institutes. 1. PERSONALITY AND VOCATION A presentation of the problems of Guidance. 2. SOUR GRAPES—Given over 4,000 times. A Study in Heredity and Marriage. 3. THE SPENDERS—A Study in the Use of Money. Any one of the No. 3 series of lectures can be booked as a single unit of a lyceum or lecture course. Appreciations The outstanding feature of Mr. Ott's work is its eminently practical note. It hitches a wagon to the stars, but chiefly it keeps one's feet firmly on every-day ground. It does not seek the impossible. His keynote is that conduct alone makes and demonstrates character; that conduct and character must be the result of personal functioning; that no one demonstrates character except through personal conduct. The members of the Institute were all very much impressed with the necessity of directing efforts for personnel improvement. Dr. Ott's course on Personality Grading with lectures and text could be scheduled with great advantages, by Merchants' Bureaus of Chambers of Commerce, and other commercial and industrial organizations, for it aims to improve one of the most important factors limiting the growth and development of many concerns—the character of its personnel.
