     One of the most important departments of this big practical institution is the machine shops.
     Don't make any mistake about it; if you expect to hold a position as an automobile expert, or if you plan to open and run your own repair shop, you must thoroughly understand machine and lathe work as applied to automobiles.
     In order to give you this practical training, you will notice from these pages I have installed a great many different sizes and kinds of lathes.
     While, of course, I do not claim to make an expert machinist of you, yet I teach you here in this department of all the lathe work and machine shop work you will need to know in order to be able to handle all of the heavy repairs on automobiles, tractors, trucks, etc.
     This department is under the direct charge of an expert machinist, a man who has spent the best years of his life in making machine repairs, automobile repairs, etc., and he not only thoroughly understands the business himself, but he understands how to teach it to you.
      I own and operate two big garages and repair shops, and am pretty thoroughly posted on just what an  automobile mechanic needs to know, and that is the reason that my graduates are so thoroughly trained.
     There is no guess work about my course of training.
     Every point, every detail, has been thoroughly thought out, worked out in actual practice,, and tested by use, so learning the automobile business it is not a case of what I think, but it is what I know by actual experience in handling scores of mechanics in my big repair shops here in Kansas City.
     My machine shops are thoroughly equipped with all types of lathes and other machinery, so that her you get the actual practice and experience in making all kinds of heavy repairs in the automobile, tractor, truck and stationary gas engine business.  
     My students get thorough, practical training in my big machine shops, and this is mighty valuable and necessary training.
     To make good in the automobile and traction engine business today you must be pretty thoroughly posted and have actual experience and training in machine shop practice in its relation to automobiles and tractors.
     A man who has never had this training is handicapped just that much and will fall just that far short in making good in the business.  I know from practice and experience that it is necessary, and that the only way to teach it is by giving you the actual practice and experience on the lathes themselves,  under the care of experts who are with you to help you all the time and give you individual instruction.
Each lathe is here for a particular purpose in order to give you practice and training in doing certain definite things in automobile machine work.
     Please keep in mind this one thing.  I never have bought any broken down or second-hand schools or schools who, because of their inefficiency, were compelled to go out of business.  This school was built from the ground up and as fast as need developed for certain kinds of machines, I went out into the market and bought them and bought the best I could buy.
