1913. A movement for adult education is sweeping over the nation today; and the most spectacular force in that movement in Dale Carnegie, a man who has listened to and criticized more talks by adults than has any other man in captivity. According to a recent cartoon by "Believe-It-Or-Not" Ripley, he has criticized 150,000 speeches. If that grand total does not impress you, remember that it means one talk for almost every day that has passed since Columbus discovered America. Or, to put it in other words, if all the men who have spoken before him had used only three minutes and had appeared before him in succession, it would have taken a solid year, listening day and night, to hear them all.
