AC KNOW EDGM ENTS


Special thanks are reserved for the following individuals
who enthused, guided and prodded the author during the
time frame of developing this typewriting textbook.



Dr. Alan C. Lloyd, typewriting expert and author of over
140 typewriting textbooks, of the Gregg Division of McGraw-
Hill Book Company, was especially gracious and helpful in
reading the first draft of this textbook. He contributed his
invaluable expertise and comments on the textbook as a
whole. He allowed me to incorporate many of his tried-and-
true formulae on syllabic intensity, word and production
count in this typewriting textbook.




Mr. E. Ray Dixon, colleague and department member at the
St. Croix Campus, who encouraged me to develop a type-
writing textbook especially geared to the students in the
U.S. Virgin Islands.


Ms. Eleanor Ross. graduate of CVI's Executive Secretarial
Administration, and presently the Personnel Supervisor at
the Virgin Islands Bureau of Corrections, who labored over
the preliminary manuscript, typing with accuracy and style.
Her professional typing and proofreading deserves the high-
est praise.



Ms. Bonnie L. Andrews, Executive Secretarial student and
Senior Office Assistant in CVI's Cooperative Extension
Service, has my heart-felt gratitude for her meticulous
attention to typing details, endless proofing and preparing
the final manuscript for "Camera Ready" status. My
praise for her professional approach to typing, her editing
ability, and her perseverance throughout the project is all-
encompassing.


The CORRESPONDENCE section of this textbook
would not have been possible without the cooperation and
permission for the use of letterheads and copy from the
offices of local Industry, Government, Insurance Companies,
Retail Stores, Travel Agents, Hotels, Banks, the Chamber of
Commerce and the Legislature.

The TABLES & MANUSCRIPT sections of this text.
book contain material from Island Center, Williams Public
Library, Fountain Valley Golf Course, and Government
publications.



The following letterheads have been incorporated in the
textbook and WORKBOOK PAD for student use in intro-
ducing a measure of 'reality' as she/he types a business
letter on a "real" letterhead.

PREFACE

"Introduction To Typewriting Caribbean Style" has been written to fill
a pressing need for the college, secondary, and post-secondary student in the
Caribbean, particularly in the U. S. Virgin Islands.

Textbooks abound in typewriting, written by experts in the U. S. These
textbooks have been and are presently being used in the Caribbean. However,
as the majority of typists who begin their clerical and secretarial training
in these islands 'enter the job market in these islands, and remain in the
islands, the need for a textbook geared to the island scene is self-evident.


GOALS & OBJECTIVES


"Introduction to Typewriting Caribbean Style" is designed with the

following objectives:

1) To provide a basic 50-lesson course for use in a 16-week college
semester.

2) To provide a basic 50-lesson course (half year) to be used by the
secondary and post-secondary student.

3) To provide an introduction to 'touch' typewriting; that-is, to
develop the ability to typewrite accurately and rapidly by touch.

4) To provide an introduction to the beginning student (after the
keyboard mastery) to Business and Personal Correspondence, Business
Tables, Manuscript typing, Theme Outlines and speed development.

5) To provide the student with local island copy using local business
and government letterheads.

6) To provide a pattern to guide the student through a speed cycle of
one-minute, two-minute, three-minute and five-minute speed writings.

7) To provide the student with a saleable vocational skill which may
enhance a 'first job' entry into the island's government and business
community.

8) To provide the student with a relevant base upon which to build and
progress to the Intermediate and Advanced levels of typewriting.

9) To provide the student with the techniques involved in operating a
typewriter.

10) To provide motivation throughout the first semester on straight-copy
speed and accuracy.

4-D. COMPUTING SPEED FOR ONE-MINUTE WRITINGS
In typewriting, each five strokes you type is
counted as one word. Computing your speed is very
easy. If you type the first two lines, your speed
is 16 words a minute. This figure is a cumulative
count. If you typed one line and up to "I" in the
second line, you would add the first line: 8, and
6 on the second line, for a total of 14 words. It
is that simple to compute your speed for a minute.

12 Hyphens are used when the typist must divide words
at the end of a line. A rule-of-thumb in division
is that the typist never divides a single-syllable
word. There are many more rules which the typists
will learn; such as, words must not be divided for
a single letter. The typist does not divide short
words of five or fewer letters.

11-A. INDENT (tabulate) FOR PARAGRAPHS

Do you know how to indicate a paragraph? The
secret is in following the routine pattern below:

First, you will clear the machine. How is it
done? It is done by pushing the tab key just once
with your little finger of the left hand and stop.

Second, you will push the clear or minus key,
with the little finger of the left hand, and stop.

Third, you will go back to the tab key at top
left of the machine, and tap it once again. These
two keys will be tapped until you have cleared all
the stops in the line.

Fourth, you will tap the return key after the
bell rings at the end of the line. At this point,
you are at the left-hand margin. Space five times
and push the set or plus key once. That sets five
spaces for the paragraph.

In the lessons ahead, you will become experts
in setting your machine correctly for a paragraph.
Practice this technique now for you will type many
short paragraphs in this lesson or future lessons.


.... I .... 2.... 3 .... 4 .... 5 .... 6....7 .... 8 .... 9...10


11-B. TABULATE FOR THE CENTER OF THE PAPER.

Your machine is now set for paragraphing. It
is always five spaces. The next tab you need when
you type letters is for the center of the page.

How is this done? Space in and stop at fifty
on the line scale. Push the plus or set key once.
The center setting will be used when you type many
closing lines for a business or a personal letter.

I, the beginning typist, have now completed a

unit in typewriting. I view it as a milestone and

can now type all letters in the alphabet from a to

z. It is a very pleasant sensation to be able now

to type short words, sentences, and short letters.


I find that I am able to type short sentences

and can find the period, the comma, the semicolon,

and the hyphen. I use the shift keys for capital-

izing words and have learned to set the machine to

indicate a paragraph and the center of each page.



I am pleased with myself. My next goal is to

find the time to practice and improve my skills in

building accuracy and speed for use in any office.

14 The typist who can center letters and reports
correctly is the typist who will never lack for an
office position. It takes only a moment to center
a notice for a bulletin board or a term paper. An
office typist must know how to set the margins and
on which line to start the letter and the report.

The typist who masters centering and can make
the process look easy is the professional typist.
The professional typist knows how to plan and how
to organize all her office work very efficiently.

The standard typing paper is eleven inches in 10
length. Memorize the number of lines on this page 20
as sixty-six. Thirty-three lines is the number to 30
remember when you center material on a half sheet. 40

As you prepare to center a notice, a listing, 50
or a paragraph, first count all lines to be typed, 60
including blank lines between the headings and the 70
body. Subtract this number from sixty-six, if the 80
material must be placed on a full sheet. However, 90
if the material must be placed on a half sheet, it 100
must be subtracted from thirty-three. Divide this 110
number by two. The next step is to space down the 120
number from the top of the page. You can now pre- 130
pare to center and type in the first line of copy. 140

Typing is a skill. It is a skill which every

college student should master. Ask the instructor

who requires one-page reports or long term papers.

The instructor prefers a well-spaced typed report.

Typing is a skill which is required for every

secretary and most office workers in business. It

is a skill which pays dividends to the typists who

wish to open a typing service for island business.

28-C. PARAGRAPH COPY (three-minute writing)

What does your typing sound like? Is it very

fast, slow, or hesitant? You can control the pace

of your typing by making an extra effort always to

tap the keys quickly. If you can keep your wrists

at an angle but in line with the home row of keys,

your typing touch is certain to improve. Remember

never to allow your palms to touch the machine. A

beginning typist is tempted to lower her palms and

rest them on the machine. Keep your wrists up and

your stroking will improve without becoming tired.

Don't divide abbreviations such as CVI, WSTX,

that you can divide before -ing in growing, before
-tion in nation, and before -tive in native. When
you divide words like in-dex, ex-port, de-mon, you
are following a rule which allows division after a
prefix. Other prefixes are: pro-, pre-, or con-.

5 Dear Mr. Walker:

We understand you are proposing a program for Boys
Club members to start them in a vocational field.
Logically, as they advance and grow older, the OIC
would continue to train them in their own program.

6 We at Martin Marietta would encourage the adoption
of such a program. For our company, it would mean
hiring better qualified local young men and women.

7 Congratulations for initiating such a program, Mr.
Walker. You have our support for this vocational
program for the young people of our great islands.

is the TYPE of practice which is valuable. As you

practice, it is important to stop and analyze your

33-B. SHORT PARAGRAPHS (each paragraph twice)

The beginning typist must plan ahead and must
know how to prepare to type office correspondence.
First, she checks the letter and estimates whether
it is a short, medium, or long letter. If it is a
short letter, she automatically sets her margin to
type on a fifty-space line. The short letter will
contain from eighty to one hundred and ten words.
If there are four or more paragraphs in a letter,
the line space will be set for a sixty-space line.

....1 .... 2 .... 3 .... 4 .... 5 .... 6....7 .... 8 .... 9...10


The first part of a letter to be typed is the
date line. Type the date on the 15th line, as the
general rule. Pivot the date by backspacing once
for every letter, space, and number in date. Then
space down five (5) times and type in the inside
address. This address may be three or four lines.
The zip code is typed three spaces after the state
or territory. Do not mail a letter without a zip.


You have now typed at least three letters and
you will automatically tap the return key twice as
you finish typing the salutation, a paragraph, and
the closing line. After the closing line, you are
ready to leave four or five spaces for the written
signature. The writer of the letter must have the
space to sign his name without writing over any of
the words you have typed. Type in the title; then
type in both initials at the left margin. This is
the last line of type, if there are no enclosures.

Salutation:

Effective September 1, 1974, all premiums not
paid within thirty days of the date of inception
of the policy, installment or endorsement, will be
subject to an interest charge of one percent per
month.

We find it has become necessary to add this
small charge to those accounts not paid within the
normal grace period due to the spiraling increase
in interest rates,

We hope that this is a temporary measure and
that conditions in the future will permit us to
discontinue this charge.

Sincerely,


M. R. Shattock
Manager

8 All high school students and college students 10
are required to develop a theme through the use of 20
an outline. The three suggested steps in the pro- 30
cess of beginning a theme include an introduction, 40
development, and conclusion of a given subject. A 50
theme which does not contain these three important 60
categories will be returned to the student without 70
hesitation to be rewritten. Heed this advice well. 80


9 To meet the growing need for higher education 90
in the Virgin Islands, the college was established 100
in 1962. This afforded students an opportunity to 110
achieve occupational and/or professional training. 120

10 One of the occupational programs offered is a 130
two-year program in Executive Secretarial Adminis- 140
tration. It is designed to round out knowledge in 150
business subjects, general education and secretar- 160
ial skills. The office worker needs to learn more 170
than the major subjects of typing and shorthand. 180

39-C. SHORT PARAGRAPH (5-minute writing)

Planning, organizing, and controlling any and
all office assignments are a challenge to the good
typist. She knows that she is expected to produce
documents which are accurate and mailable. She is
a careful proofreader and productive member of the
office team. She is concerned with her image as a
typist who knows how to plan her day, organize her
assigned work, and evaluate her production. Plans
help her reach daily, weekly and monthly goals. A
typist and secretary must be aware of most manage-
ment functions in the office process. The typists
who are familiar with management principles may be
promoted to jobs which deal with the flow of data.
In the office, flow of data means paper work. Set
your goals, plan your work, determine how and when
it is to be done, and who will do it. Management,
like typewriting, is a skill. Management can be a
process, an art and an occupation. How far a typ-
ist will advance depends on the individual typist.

The next phase in table typing is arranging a
table which contains headings over each column. A
heading over a column must also be centered. Note
the difference between the length of a heading and
the longest word in its column and divide it by 2.
This indicates how many spaces to indent to center
the shorter line. Practice the next exercise. It
will give you practice in trying out this formula.

41-A. SHORT PARAGRAPHS (5-minute writings)

The efficient typist knows the basic parts of
a business, letter and types each element automati-
cally. The basic parts of a business letter start
with a printed letterhead. The letter must have a
date, so the date line is the first line under the
letterhead. The date line may be pivoted or flush
with the left-hand margin or completely centered.

When the date is typed, the typist will reach
for the return key and tap it five times. She can
now type in the inside address. The number varies
as to lines, but the typist must check to see that
there is a full name, a street, or box number, apd
the city, and state. The post office requires all
letters to end in a zip code. This insures faster
delivery of all correspondence. Two spaces below,
(the zip code) the typist fills in the salutation:
either Dear Mr. Jones, Dear Mr. and Mrs. Jones, or
Dear Sir, or Gentlemen. After the salutation, the
body of the letter is then typed, with appropriate
paragraphs. The typist will automatically tap the
return key twice in a single-spaced letter as each
paragraph ends. After another two taps on the re-
turn key, the complimentary close is typed. It is
tabbed and typed at the center point of the sheet.

... .... 2..2 3.. .. 4 .... 5....6 .... 7 .... ... .9...10

The typist is now ready to type in the signa-
ture line four or five spaces below the close, and
the title follows the signature line; for example,
Manager, Vice President, etc. One space below the
dictator's title, on the left-hand margin, typists
will indicate their initials after the dictator's.

If the letter indicates an enclosure, abbrev-
iation Enc. is typed in. If a carbon copy of this
letter is made to be sent to another division, the
carbon copy is indicated by "cc" on the line below
the enclosure.

The letter is now complete and ready for sig-
nature. The typist must pride herself on complete
accuracy regarding placement, punctuation, grammar
and spelling. The typist develops good proofread-
ing habits, and avoids embarrassing her employers.

43-C, LEARN THE BASIC PARTS OF A SHORT MANUSCRIPT

As a college student, you will be required to
write a few themes, book reports, and manuscripts.
As a typist, you enjoy an advantage which non-typ-
ing students lack. The typist can save much time,
energy, and tension if she is able to type all her
themes and reports in good form, There is no sub-
stitute for a neatly typed and well-spaced report.

Like the business letter, the typist must try
to identify the basic parts of a short manuscript.
The TITLE is centered and in caps. A SUBTITLE may
be centered but double spaced below the title with
a BY LINE on the next line. The By Line means the
author's name; that is, your name if you are writ-
ing the manuscript. Come down two spaces, and you
are ready to start the body of the manuscript. Of
course, you will indent five spaces for each para-
graph. Any SUBHEADINGS are centered, underscored,
and preceded by two blank lines. SIDEHEADINGS are
usually all caps and preceded by 2 blank lines. A
BALANCE LINE completes the short manuscript. This
line is so named because it balances the typing on
the page and the date is placed either on the left
margin or pivoted from the right margin. When you
are ready to type a manuscript, the machine is set
for double spacing and the title is placed on line
13. This means you have a top margin of 2 inches.
If your manuscript is short, a fifty-space line is
adequate.

TYPING A NEWS RELEASE

A Report to Mrs. Browne
By (YOUR NAME)


This short report is designed to serve all of

our club members as a guide for publicizing activ-

ities of our club and professional association.

FIRST SENTENCE

In the first sentence of the release, every

reader should know WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, and WHY.

If possible, HOW should also be included.

DEVELOP PARAGRAPHS

Develop each paragraph, but each one should be

of declining importance. Why? If the editor does

not have space or time to use the entire release,

it can be cut from the bottom paragraphs, which

contain the least important details.

CONCISE EXPRESSIONS

Use short words, short sentences and short

paragraphs. Type your news release on one page

and double space the material.

The editor of the newspaper who receives your publicity
release prefers to have the item typewritten on 8 1/2" x 11"
white paper. As a typist and a secretary, you know the size
of this standard business page. Also, use good quality bond
paper. Avoid using onionskin paper or tissue-weight paper.

Avoid mailing carbons of a story to newspapers or radio
stations. Carbons may smear when handled by the editor of a
newspaper or a radio or TV announcer. Keep copies of all of
the releases you mail out. List the club name, the address,
a telephone number, and the person releasing the news story.

Indicate when the story is to be released. Do not type
on both sides of the paper; type only on one side. To add a
professional touch, use a few ## under the final paragraph.

21 How do you prepare to compose a theme, report 10
or story? You prepare by selecting a topic. With 20
a topic that interests you and the reader, you can 30
proceed by establishing the who, why, when and the 40
where of your subject. You will develop the topic 50
step-by-step by illustration, by example, or by an 60
amplification of your research. You will conclude 70
either with a summary, a personal reaction or by a 80
personal touch. Use these simple steps in themes, 90
reports and stories. Always follow these 3 steps. 100

The typist finds each assignment a challenge.

The challenge, however, includes a plan to produce

the letters, tables, and manuscripts within a time

frame which is reasonable. She knows that all the

documents, she types must be accurate and mailable.

The typists who can arrange simple tables are

assured of success in office work. The basic rule

in arranging,tables for reports or letters is very

easy. Apply the basic formula for all column .work

and avoid the necessity of retyping any documents.

The expert typist is the one who can type all

office documents with ease. She becomes an expert

because she is organized, knows the basic rules of

producing a variety of documents, and combines all

these skills to illustrate good office techniques.

The accurate typist is always in demand. She

can earn small amounts of money typing for student

classmates or for graduate students writing theses

for an advanced degree. Typing need not be an end

in itself, but could lead to an exciting career in

organizing a small business to cater to the typing

needs of the local businesses and budding authors.

CVI PROJECTED AS UNIVERSITY BY 1990


The College of the Virgin Islands could become

a multi-purpose, multi-campus university by 1990.


PREDICTIONS

This exciting prospect was one of the predic-

tions of community leaders and faculty members at

a Convocation of Higher Education at the Melvin H.

Evans Center for Learning on the St. Croix Campus

held on December 3, 1976.


SPEAKERS

A CVI alumnus and assistant business manager

at the college stated that by 1990 CVI would in-

clude a college of tropical agriculture, a school

for social research, and an institute for finance

and marketing.

The Director of the Bureau of Public Adminis-

tration predicted that the full-time students could

number in the 5,000 range by 1990.

A special advisor to the board of trustees also

predicted that the community will endorse and support

the concept of one college with two campuses.
