            [00:07.68]Text A
            [00:09.74]Can't She Type?
            [00:11.57]The well-known banker, T.J.Ellington,
            [00:17.01]was at one time in his younger days the manager of a New York office.
            [00:22.83]His secretary had been with him for many years, and knew his ways and habits.
            [00:29.31]She always kept a glass off water on his desk, and knew that he disliked flowers in the office.
            [00:37.59]He had a habit of interrupting a letter (when she was writing it down)
            [00:43.23]with a few words on other subjects which had no connection with the letter?
            [00:48.69]but she knew how to deal with that.
            [00:50.96]She was never late, and was always willing to work beyond office hours when necessary.
            [00:59.56]Therefore, when she left the ofrice to get married.Ellington felt rather sorry for himself.
            [01:07.76]In those days good secretaries were hard to find.
            [01:13.27]Ellington rang up the office in the city which had supplied him before?
            [01:19.20]but the woman there said that she had no one suitable.
            [01:23.83]He tried several other places, but the answer was always the same.
            [01:29.16]There did not seem to be any secretaries unemployed.
            [01:33.70]But it was absolutely necessary for him to find someone,
            [01:38.46]and at last he rang up the first office again and urged the woman to find a girl who could at least type.
            [01:47.55]"Well," she said slowly, "there's Miss Steele."
            [01:52.01]"Good!" cried Ellington. "Send her along at once.
            [01:57.39]I really must have someone here immediately."
            [02:00.11]"I'm not sure about her," said the woman doubtfully.
            [02:05.23]"Why? Can' t she type? Is she too old?"
            [02:09.80]"Oh, she's quite young. In fact she's only just left the Secretarial College.She types very well indeed."
            [02:20.83]"Well, then, what's the matter? Send her here at once."
            [02:26.02]"All right, if you say so. But she's a bit simple."
            [02:32.11]Miss Steele arrived soon afterwards, and he explained her duties to her.
            [02:39.06]At first she refused to accept the post; she said that she had had no experience and was not used to such work.
            [02:48.93]But after a further conversation he managed to persuade her to come, at least for a week or two.
            [02:57.29]She agreed, but her face had a doubtful expression on it as she went out.
            [03:04.58]On the following morning Miss Steele arrived at the office ready for work.
            [03:04.63]Ellington had one letter to which he wished to reply immediately,and he rang the bell.
            [03:11.50]Miss Steele came in quietly and sat down, pencil in hand iand notebook on knee.
            [03:19.39]Ellington told her to take a letter, and was glad, to see that shelcould write as fast as he spoke.
            [03:26.86]It was soon done and, she went out to type it.
            [03:31.44]"Well," thought Elliugton, "there doesn't seem to be much wrong with that girl.
            [03:37.63]A short time later she entered the office again and placed a letter, beautifully typed onhis desk.
            [03:47.53]He looked at it with pleasure, but read it with surprise. !It was as follows:"24th July, 1976."Mr James Vandenberg,
            [04:02.94]'His address is on this letter, Here! Take it with you."Dear Sir,
            [04:09.97]"I thank you for your letter of yesterday's date."
            [04:13.86]I think the question of the electric motors needs further consideration,
            [04:19.63]and as time is important, it will probably be best if we meet to discuss it.
            [04:26.79]There's that cat outside the window again. Please tell Miss Harper to remove it and keep it away.
            [04:34.60]I've told her before about it.I should take it as a favour if you would lunch with me on Friday next.
            [04:43.66]What's happened to my glass of water this morning?
            [04:47.58]We may then be able to settle the matter finally. I don't like flowers in the office.
            [04:54.87]Please remove them.  I usually lunch at one o'clock.
            [05:00.38]Please let me know if that time will suit you. This letter is important and I want you to type it carefully.
            [05:10.23]"Yours faithfully,"
            [05:15.82]Text B
