Leonard P. Ayres---to educators this name means the creator of the first practicable scales in handwriting and spelling for the elementary school child. To those who served in the World War, his name brings back memories of statistical reports concerning men, munitions, and supplies. Financiers and business men throughout the country say, and have said, for almost twenty years that the name Ayres, is simultaneous with unbelievably correct business and stock market predictions.
