Abstract: One of the objectives of business education is the personal-use objective—"The schools should give the pupil an opportunity to develop a satisfactory degree of proficiency in the use of one or more of the business skills to meet his nonvocational, personal needs."1 In Business Equation, Basic Principles and Trends, Tonne says: It must be recognized that such subjects as typing and bookkeeping may be taken by a great many pupils for nonvocational purposes, or at least without thought of entering immediately on employment in which such knowledge and skills would be used. Skill in typing, for example, is today of perhaps as much general social utility as skill in handwriting. . . .The time is undoubtedly not far distant when ability to use a typewriter skillfully will be as much or more a test of literacy as ability to write a good hand.2
