From small beginnings it has become Widely knowng every section of Texas and a score of other states have furnished its students, at- tracted by the good name of the school and its reputation for thoroughness. The Academy enJoys the distinction of be mg the pioneer preparatory school of Texas It has been the pride of the Allen family It is owned controlled and operated by the Allens The second generation is now actively carrying on the ideals set by the original Allen brothers It has never resorted to sensational advertising nor to methods aimed at mere popularity Charac ter building is the first purpose of the school The authorities have believed that a boy benefit ed IS the teacher s greatest reward and the claim to continued confidence and patronage It is bet ter for the school to make an all round man than a scholar but it is best to do both It has always been the ambition of the di rectmg authorities that the Academy have no superior in thoroughness of instruction in excell ence of discipline and in all that goes to make a good school The aim has been and shall con tinue to be to make the Work ab thorough and the results as excellent as those to be had in any pre paratory school North or South .N Q vu Qv ' H ' v A 5 f X Y - 1 x yr s' . . . . - , 5 V I . w o . 1 0 ,Xl . . y . . i 5 A Q I 5 ' - '13 ' 1 1- -Alia i 'ul' i ' W , I I u It I - 4 X A Q ',J nil i T.

Some of this is of an administrative nature, a great deal concerns training methods, and it would be a fine thing if such information could be compiled and dis- seminated to all schools. It was a great pleasure to visit your school and your oourtesies during our visit were very much ap- preciated. JAMES W. CURTIS, Lt. Col., Infantry " WAR DEPARTMENT Office of the Chief of Infantry WASHINGTON, D. C. .....It was a very interesting, instructive, but tiresome trip, however, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and was met with fine receptions at all schools. Let me say that I particularly enjoyed my visit at your institution. T I am looking forward to the possibility of another visit. W. G. LIVESAY, Col. Inf., Ft. Benning, Ga. .....0ne of the things that struck me throughout my trip was the general natmospheren of the different institutions, in regard to the students as well as the faculty. In this respect, I found none superior to Allen. J. E. JEFFRES, Lt. Col., 29th Infantry. WAR DEPARTMENT Chief of Infantry VVASHINGTON, D. C. I find it very difficult to say anything that I would class as Wconstructive criticismn of your school. By comparing the second and third documents men- tioned you can see how, in the opinion of the Board, your school compares with the average school in its class, so far as military features are concerned. A. W. LANE, Brigadier Gen., Infantry. Your school impressed me as being one that should appeal to both young men and their parents. The spirit among the students was excellent. They all appeared to be happy and keenly interested in their work. No sug- gestions as to how you might improve the school occur to me. It seems to me that you are accomplishing the true mission of any school, i. e., improving the boys rather than seeking our boys to improve the school. J. M. CHURCHILL, Colonel, Infantry. Please accept my hearty congratulations upon making ehe Honor List. You have at Allen Academy a i.L1'L 111 ml1...001. Q EQQQ Bi Qi Ti Sli 2.1354 QQ Q L..a1'.-. - yelous spirit. It is a combination which will do won- ders and speaks well for every one connected with the institution. PAUL W. BAADE, Brig. Gen., Infantry. '15 REPORTS OF INSPECTORS WAR DEPARTMENT Office of the Chief of Infantry In a few days you will receive a detailed rating sheet which will indicate the high and low spots of your rating. Off-hand I should say that one of the 'high lightsn at your school was the spirit and vim of the students. ... .... Was also interested in hearing of the Hearst Tro- phy. Congratulations on making such a fine record. P. W. NEWGARDEN, Col., Infantry It was a great pleasure to visit your fine school. You have a splendid institution and it is performing a very valuable service for its large community. It really has no glaring or outstanding weaknesses. Its further improvement, therefore, in axnilitary way, must result from, first, constant effort and hard work on the part of all Qjust as in the pastj, and, second, a polishing up of all the fine points in every phase of military instruction. Do this and your school, already an excellent one, is bound to improve. H. E. MARSHBUHN, Col., Infantry. In these days of the military school which are re- commended for inspection, there are no real weak points. the level of performance at such an inspection as we were obliged to make is on such a satisfactory plane that the differences between the Schools have to be largely gauged on the nrefinemnet'--the last polish, or finesse, so to speak. It is a severe competition to judge. You had a very able officer, an excellent spirit seemed to prevade the school, and the faculty and com- munity seemed to be strong for the military department. It was a real pleasure to see intimately your fine school. C. H. WHITE, Maj. Gen, U. S. Army. In looking over'my notes made on the day of inspec- tion I find no particular subject that I had which might be classed as poor. Rather, all subjects rated in a more or less uniform manner. This emphasizes in an excellent way what I preached all the way and that is -- attention to detail. Uniformity of instruction and progress, skipping no details, will surely bring results. Esprit, thoroughness, and hard work can't help but be successful. CHARLES H. BONESTEEL, Major General, Infantry. 16 HONOR SCHOOL - HOW SELECTED The R. O. T. C. officer of each Service Command in the United States inspects all of the essentially military schools in his Command. He selects from this list the most efficient mil- itary cadet corps, and if their standard of efficiency Will justi- fy, he recommends that the War Department include these units in the inspection made each spring by a Board of Inspect- ing Officers sent from the War Department. This Army Board visits all of the recommended schools and by a series of exacting tests selects the strongest schools in the United States. Upon recommendation of this Board the Secretary of War designates the schools with the highest grades of inspection as Honor Military Schools. HONOR GRADUATES For each year that an essentially military school is desig- nated as an Honor Military School, members of the graduating classes are selected by the head of the Institution and the Pro- fessor of Military Science and Tactics and are known as the Honor Graduates. The term "Honor Graduate" is understood to apply to a graduate whose scholarship has been outstanding and Whose cfficiency in military training and whose attention to dutv has merited the approbation of the Professor of Military Science and Tactics. The Honor Graduates must be citizens of the United States, of exemplary habits, and of good moral char- acter. HONOR GRADUATES AS CANDIDATES FOR ADMISSION TO THE U. S. MILITARY AND NAVAL ACADEMIES The Adjutant General of the Army and the Chief of the Navv Bureau will anticipate the vacancies in the corps of cadets at the United States Military and Naval Academies and will make an equitable distribution of those vacancies among the Honor Military Schools of the Country. An honor graduate of a selected institution will, upon meeting the substantuating mental examination, and subject to a satisfactory phvsical examination, be appointed a cadet of the United States Militarv Academy upon the certificate of the head of the institution that the appointee is an Honor Graduate of the institution.

ALLEN ACADEMY CADETS TO GOVERNMENT ACADEMIES The Academy has had cadets in the United States Military, Naval and Coast Guard Academies for more than forty years. The school offers a special course to cadets seeking entrance into all of these Academies. Very successful have been the results for the individual cadets in this class. They have entered these Academies either with- out mental examinations or upon successful substantiating examinations and by Showing superior ability in competitive examinations with students from other schools and col- leges. 19 NAVY DEPARTMENT BUREAU OF NAVIGATION Washington, D.

Here as a pio- neer in the educational system of th e State he worked for thirteen years, and conducted a school of remarkable vigor and success. He was joined by his brother, R. O. Allen, in this work in 1896. Then came the decision of the brothers to establish a school for boys and after mature deliberation their one seed was planted in Bryan, which has indeed been good ground. In September, 1899, these two men, known in the Texas educational circles as the Allen Brothers, formed with a few of the prominent citizens of Bryan a corporation for the purpose of maintaining a preparatory school for boys. During the first year the Principals were the only teachers. But since that day there has been no turning back and the school has had very gratifying success. The initial purchase of land has been increased from five acres to three hundred forty-eight acres. From one building of two rooms the material equip- ment of the school has been brought to a plant which includes ihe administration building, seven dormitories, the dining hall, an indoor gymnasium and drill hall, a hospital, nine homes for faculty members and students, thirteen bungalows for students quarters, a modern dairy barn, a twenty-acre athletic field, and three hundred forty--eight acres in maneuver field and campus. During more than the half of a century Allen Academy has welcomed thousands of students. These "old boys" are fill- ing positions of prominence all over the country and are living examples of the "Allen spirit." The alumni of the school have always been very strong factors in its upbuilding. Even the briefest sketch of the history of the Academy would be incomplete, if it failed to mention its Board of Direc- tors. The school has always felt it could not have accomplish- ed so much without the sympathy, confidence, and support al- 'Ways accorded it by the Board and the business men of Bryan. The school is proud of the fact that among the members of its present Board of Directors there are old Allen boys who are helping to shape and direct its destiny. 25 CHOOSING A SCHOOL Some of the things which should be carefully considered in making the choice of a school for a boy or young man may be mentioned here. A 'school which has gone through the experimental stage and which has become fixed in its policy and has virtually separated the good from the bad in its experiences should attract the attention of a prospective patron. A school should have listed in its accomplishments national recognition in every phase of its work. A school is not built in a day, and the great- est joy that can come to a school man is that confidence and respect have been gained for his school project outside the con- fines of his own district or state. A school with a national rec- ognition must have national standards and should have an in- ternational vision. Another essential is the character of the men who are to teach your boy. 'In teaching boys 90 per cent of the success lies in the personality of the teacher. In any good school what a boy gets from the text books is not half so important as what he gets from the lives and characters of the men who teach him. The third essential is the moral and religious atmosphere with which your son is to be surrounded. A good school will stand not only for moral purity, but for Christian ideals and standards of conduct. Out of the heart are the issues of life. The fourth essential of a good school is discipline-firm, kind, wise control. There must be unquestioned obedience to constituted authority. But obedience must be willing or it is none: it must come through loyalty rather than through com- pulsion. The fifth essential is thorough instruction -- sound mental training. This requires able and skillful teachers. "Masters" is the old Word, and it is a good one. A teacher who is master of his subject, master of himself, and a master among boys is cheap at any price. T Finally, a good school will not neglect the health and physical development of your boy. "Physically fit" has come 26 to have a new meaning for us. The phrase expresses a high idea as well as an urgent practical need. Health and strength of body are beyond price, simply because they are prerequisites to the most useful life. In the light of recent events and tendencies we may add that a school must train more definitely for service, for citizen- ship and for democracy. No school is a good school for an American boy unless it can inspire in him an enthusiasm for our American ideals and institutions, and where possible give him opprotunity to help develop international good will. Since its founding Allen Academy has stood for the above things. The extent to which we are realizing this ideal is evi- denced by expressions from some very high authorities which have come to us in the form of personal letters, several of which may be found elsewhere in this catalogue. LOCATION Bryan is situated on the Southern Pacific and the Missouri Pacific lines, 100 miles north of Houston and 160 miles south of Dallas. Eight miles from the Brazos River, located on a high sandy oak ridge fthe highest point in the countyl, the town is exceptionally free from all local causes of disease. Its health- fulness is unsurpassed by that of any locality in the State. The town enjoys a fine reputation as a. school center. Its excellent public schools, the State A. 8m M. College, and Allen Academy manifest the interest of the people of the community ill educational affairs. Because of the fact that Bryan is the home during the school year of about 6,000 students every pre- caution and measure is taken to keep the town clean and free from the temptations found in the larger cities. Its citizen- ship is cultured and refined, and in the Bryan people its school find great support. The merchants of the city are very active through all of the Service Clubs in the promotion of Bryan as an unusual town for students. Bryan is a city of churches as well as of schools. Perhaps no other town of its size in Texas has so many beautiful and costly church buildings. The following denominations are rep- zv ' resented and have regularly conducted services: Baptist, Free Will Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist, Christian, Episcopal, Catholic, and Hebrew. The pastors have proved to be the most loyal friends of the Academy and very hospitable indeed are the different church congregations in their reception of the Allen cadets. HEALTH The health record of the Academy has been remarkable. Wholesome food, proper exercise, regular hours, the careful attention of a competent school physician and a nurse, who re- sides on the campus, together with vigilance with respect to sanitary conditions have made an excellent health record for the school. There have been only a few cases of serious sick- ness in the school's history. That such a record over 58 years is most unusual is evidenced by the fact that Ripley of the "Believe it or not" Column has requested its use. CHARACTER AND SCOPE The Academy is committed to definite aims: first, to give tc boys and young men a thorough preparation to meet the most rigid requirements for entrance into the higher institu- tions of learning, North, South, East, or West, to carry that preparation further that they may enter college with advanced standing, or to fit them for honorable and useful business ca- reers, and second, to surround its cadets with every safeguard and bring to bear upon their lives every moral and religious force that makes for right thinking and right living. The Academy confines itself strictly to fundamental courses. And we hold that a few subjects well taught give better results than a multiplicity of subjects with many "elec- tives." The school is controlled by the Superintendent. It is es- sentially non-sectarian, but distinctly Christian, We believe that the 'supreme aim and end of all true education is the de- velopment of strong, pure, manly character, founded upon Christian faith. X 28 FACULTY We make it an invariable rule to employ none but the best instructors. We believe that the lowest class in Arith- metic or in Reading needs a skilled teacher, a man of broad scholarship and strong character, just as much as a class in Geometry or in Latin. Our instructors are university grad- uates selected for their fitness to teach the subjects assigned to them. Only men meeting in scholarship the full requirements of the Association of Texas Schools and Colleges and the stan- dards of the Association of Southern Colleges and Secondary Schools are employed as instructors. We employ men teachers only, because we believe that boys from twelve to twenty years of age can be better taught by men. We have a teacher to every twelve to fifteen students. The classes are small and the instruction is of a personal nature. Much individual work is done with pupils who need it. ADVISORY In the Advisory system, the Academy has developed a mu- tually helpful plan of bringing closer together faculty members and cadets. Each instructor has a group of some ten boys as- signed to him, and it is his duty to map out, after consulting with the Headmaster, and the Superintendent, the courses of study for his boys, to hold conferences with them regarding scholorship, conduct, future plans, etc., to assist and advise in Various questions in their livesg to act as their special rep- resentative in the faculty meetingsg to advise with their par- ents or guardians, with the idea of helping each boy to find himself and to decide upon his life work and at this time help the boy to prepare for effective and efficient service in the all- out program for Victory in the present war, D Vocational advice of this nature can play a great part in the training of a boy, for, as Browning has said, "When the fight begins within himself, a man's worth something." Par- ents should keep in touch with their son's Adviser, and frank- ly and gladly furnish information sought. Upon entrance a boy will be assigned to his Adviser. Each applicant for en- 29 rollment should fill the advisory blank together With the en- trance application. - OUR STANDING The authorities of the Academy take great pleasure and pride in the rank of the school among the educational insti- tutions of Texas and the South. The school has four principal phases of work-scholarship, military training and discipline, athletics, and band Work. In each of these it now has National recognition. The Academy has full affiliation with the leading univer- sities of the North, South, East, and West. All institutions of the entire country which accept on certificate admit our grad- uates without examination. It is with especial pride that the institution points to the fellowships and higher honors which its cadets have gained in the greatest institutions of higher learning throughout the country. The school is a member of the Association of Accredited Schools of Texas, and has been for a number of years a mem- ber of the Association of Southern Colleges and Secondary Schools, The school is unique in its relation to the Texas A. 8: M. College and special privileges with that institution make the Academy an ideal place in which cadets may prepare to carry with advanced standing the various courses offered there. This has been made possible through the establishment of an Ex- tra-nsion Center of this institution in the Academy. Strong col- lege courses thereby are offered to Academy cadets under a very strong faculty and with the supervision and direction of the Dean of Liberal Arts and the heads of the various depart- ments of the College. Special attention is given the preparation of students who wish to enter Texas A. 81 M. College, Harvard, Princeton, Yale, or any other institution of higher learning. A special course is offered to cadets wishing to enter the U. S. Military Academy, the U. S. Naval Academy, or the U. S. Coast Guard Academy. Through the very high rating of our military department cer- tain special privileges for the appointment of cadets to the U. S. Military or Naval Academies are held. Especially pleased 30' are the authorities of the Academy over the records maintained by its former cadets in all of the Government Academies. Cadets coming from foreign countries to the Academy are welcomed with a true democratic reception. Equal oportunity is given each and special tutorial instruction is given to accel- erate the learning and use of the English language-most successful has been the work of the school with such cadets. The international recognition of the school has been most wide- spread. In athletics the school has the distinction of being one of the few Southern schools to hold a number of National Academy records. The school band has carried the message of the cadet corps during the past few years to every section of Texas, sev- eral States, and to Europe. As an organization this band has become widely known as one of the unusually proficient mili- tary bands of the country. We publish on other pages some opinions from the heads of colleges, prominent educators, high Army officials, and re- cognized leaders in band music, MILITARY TRAINING At such a time its not only essential that young men re- ceive the finest of educational advantages in their early train- ing but it is wise that they be given the proper military training in order that they be efficient and effective in meeting the call to arms of their country in the all-out program for the winning of the war. The making of disciplined, well trained soldiers or officers is the privilege of select young men and the duty of the school. Estimates show that more than two thousand alumni and ex-students of the Academy are now serving in the various branches of the Armed forces. At least six hundred of these men are officers of a commissioned rank. In the air, on the sea, on land and in the submarine service Allen cadets are ren- dering meritorious service--many have been decorated for dis- tinguished exploits and valor. During the year just closed the Academy has placed through its aviation unit more than two 31 hundred young men in line for further training in the Army Aviation field. While approximately two hundred cadets have entered the Army with the Commission of Second Lieutenant, gone to the Officer Candidate Schools, entered specialized train- ing courses leading to commsisions in the Army, Navy, Army Air Corps, Navy Air Corps, the Marines, or the Coast Guard, others have entered the U. S. Military, Naval, and Coast Guard Academies by Presidential, Congressional, or special school ap- pointments. That military training and discipline has been very suc- cessful in Allen Academy is evidenced by the fact that the school is one of the Honor Military Schools of the United States. This distinction has come through a series of tests and inspections made by the officers of the Eighth Service Command, and by the inspecting Honor Rating Boards from the War Department. The honor is the highest that can come to an essentially military school in the United States. Years ago military training was introduced into the school. At that time the school did not at all foresee how rapidly pub- lic opinion was to crystallize in favor of such training. Its in- troduction into the Academy was not based upon popular in- terest, but upon a conviction, after careful consideration, of its advantages as a means to the proper training of boys. During the spring of 1919, by an Order of the President of the United States, a Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps Was established in the school. With greater cooperation and back- ing by the War Department the results under this system have been most gratifying. Of course, the value of any system depends primarily upon the men behind it. Success is more a matter of ideals than of methods. Realizing this, the school has sought to keep at the head of the Military Department a man of right ideals as Well as of thorough military training. During the past years We have been most fortunate indeed in having detailed to the school to act in the capacity of Pro- fessors of Military Science and Tactics and as Commandants of Cadets, men who were eminently fitted by training and char- acter for the positions. The achievement in the Military Department of the school has met With most generous commendation from the highest 32 authorities. This is evidenced by the strong indorsements given by the Head of the R. O. T. C. of the Southwest, high officers of the Eighth Service Command, the Adjutant General of the United States Army, by members of the Honor Rating Boards, and other members of the General Staff of the War Depart- ment. We have found the military system, rightly administered, productive of the folowing results: S Q11 It carries every boy into the open air daily for thorough physical drill, resulting in better health, stronger bodies, and clearer minds. Q23 It de- velopls a spirit of ready obedience to proper authority, a spirit of manly observance of established regulations-a thing so necessary for every boy to learn. C31 It inculcates habits of order, neatness, and promptness. 142 It affords valuable men- tal training in the power of attention, concentration, and co-or- dination. Nothing will more rapidly bring a boy to self-control and self-realization. These are some of the benefits of miltary training as we have observed the system in actual application. There are oth- cr results of a more incidental nature. We put the boys into an inexpensive business-like service uniform of serge. This great- ly reduces expenditures for clothing and largely removes ob- jectionable distinction in dress. Properly administered, the system undoubtedly appeals to the boy's sense of honor, man- liness, and patriotismg and it awakecns the innate virility and heroism of his nature. Military training was not introduced into the Academy with the idea of making every boy, or any boy, a soldier, ex- cept in so far as to make him fit to be a soldier if he should be called to that high service. In a democratic country those things which prepare a boy for the highest usefulness as a patriotic citizen prepare him for the largest measure of self- development and personal success in private life. We Wish it to be understood that the Superintendent does not propose any departure from the long established and suc- cessful methods of discipline in the school. This will remain, as it has always been, a matter of personal interest, insight, and touch. You cannot mould a boy by means of a mere system- It takes the personal touch, the free play of one life 33 and character upon another when the two are brought togeth- er in intimate personal relationship and mutual understanding. R. O. T. C. ORGANIZATION During the year just closed the school maintained one of the largest and best Junior R. O, T. C. Units in the Southwest, the Eighth Service Command. According to the reports of the inspectors all requirements have been fully met and a very high rating has been given the school. During the time that the R. O. T. C. competitions were held at the Dallas State Fair, the Academy had the distinction of whining more honors than all other Academies and Junior Colleges in Texas with the R. O. T. C. organization. For the twentieth consecutive year the school has been the only Texas Academy designated by the Adjutant Gentral of the United States Army as one of the mili- tary schools of the United States entitled to undergo the Honor Rating inspection by the War Department. The R. O. XT. C. has been a great advantage to the school. It gives Government standing and indorsement, and it insures the most complete and liberal equipment. It has resulted in a great reduction of expenses to the student and each boy has been furnished free, by the Government, one uniform outfit of clothing. Membership in the Junior R. O. T. C, carries with it no military obligation whatever, and withdrawal from school ter- minates all relations With the R. O, T. C. It is the object of the Government in maintaining these organizations to give a limited number of picked boys in preparatory schools the bene- fits of this military training for the purpose of fitting them for higher military schools or for military leadership in later life, should they aspire Cor be calledl to this. Really, the un- derlying purpose is thorough training for American citizenship, and the Government is making the investment. R. O. T. C. SUMMER CAMP For a number of years picked cadets were sent to the Gov- ernment training camps -- every expense of travel ,clothing, and maintenance being provided without cost to the cadet. In the summer of 1919 the Academy sent representatives to Camp 34 1 Taylor, Ky. In 1920, nearly forty of our boys went to Camp Jackson, S. C. For two years a splendid company of them had "the time of their lives" at Camp Logan in the Colorado Mountains. During each summer the cadets have enjoyed six weeks of training at Fort Crockett or Fort Sam Houston, Texas. The quota of cadets permitted to attend these summer camps was dependent upon the appropriation by the War De- partment for such attendance. The Camps afforded valuable training, a new experience, a delightful outing, and an opportunity for cadets to measure strength with the students from other military schools and colleges of Texas and other States. These camps were open to all cadets in the advanced course of Military Science or Tactics, as the representatives were chosen on the basis of their school record and general fitness. The cadets from the school showed to very great advant- age and Won many distinctions and signal honors in competi-- tion with students from the different academies and colleges represented at these camps. In fact, each camp gave the Corps added honors and just cause for having a great pride in the school's military organization. In 1919 the cadets who went to Camp Taylor did most ex- cellent work. In 1920 at Camp Jackson the Allen boys stood very high in their different competitions. The two years at Fort Logan brought greater results, the Academy having an average for the entire camp of from five to six cadets on the daily honor roll of ten, and one of the Allen cadets won a place on the team which represented this Corps Area at the National Rifle Matches. Again in 1923 of the three R. O. T. C. students to represent the Eighth Corps Area at the National Rifle Matches, Allen enjoyed the distinction of having two men. In the years which followed in both the R. O. T. C. and the C. M. T. C. Camps, Allen cadets gained many distinctions and honors. The Commanding Generals of the Camps held for the R, O. T. C. students wrote each year regarding the Allen cadets in attendance: "Their discipline, conduct, and attitude towards the camp have left nothing to be desired. In every way they have reflected great credit upon their school." Since the Declaration of War and the accelerated program I 35 by the War Department to build young officers for the Service, camp duty is given our graduates of the Military Department in actual service in the officers' schools in the Regular Army. R. O. T. C. COMMISSIONS -A distinction very much prized in the cadet corps is the commission of Second Lieutenant, Infantry Section, United States Reserves, which is given by the Adjutant General of the United States Army. This commission will be issued to all cadets who have completed the four years of military training in the Academy and who have taken satisfactorily the advanced courses given in the Army Schools. Of course, the commission is withheld until the boy reaches his eighteenth year, SPECIALIZED TRAINING COURSES The Academy is offering pre-induction courses Without Col- lege Entrance Credit, but of extreme value to cadets who are preparing for entrance into the various branches of the Army, the Navy, the Army or Navy Air Forces, the Coast Guard, the Marines or the Merchant Marines. At stated intervals the War and Navy Departments are offering examinations to screen young men Who are to soon be- come of selective service age--opportunity of further college training and further training for the various branches of the Service are offered, therefore, to capable young men who de- sire to speicalize in the service they may render their country. This opens another avenue through which young men of ability may gain the coveted commission at the end of further college training. The Academy enjoyed having all cadets Who passed such examinations followed by the usual physical examination ac- cepted for such training during the past year by the Navy, the Army and Navy Air Corps and the Marines. A number of cadets who could not remain in the Academy long enough for a Commission through the R. O .T. C. thereby, gained many ad- vantages. RIFLE RANGES The Academy has unusual advantages in its rifle ranges. Indoor ranges for the .22 calibre rifle are maintained on the campus. Practice on the short range and on the longer ranges of from 200 to 1,000 yards are required by the War Department. 36 During recent years it has been the policy of the War Depart- ment to require the long range firing to be done at the Summer Camp on Government ranges and under Government supervision. Much interest is manifested by the cadets in competition for places on the rifle teams. In Inter-School Shoots, Eighth Ser- vice Command Matches, the Hearst's National Shoot, and the National Intercollegiate Shoot the rifle teams from the Academy have made very unusual records. Among the many trophies held by the rifle teams of the school are beautiful medals and trophies and 15 shields representing winnings in the different William Randolph Hearst Shoots. One of these represents the championship of the Western Division of the United States and another the National championship gained by the rifle teams of the school in 1935. AVIATION Due to the demands of the present war and the general tendencies on the part of the public, great emphasis has been placed upon training of the youth of this country in both pre- flight and flight training in Aviation. The Academy offered during the past year the ground work and pilot training lead- ing to the private civilian pilot's license under experienced and most capable men. Only under Government approved men, equipment, and airport facilities would this valuable training bc- given. Hand in hand with the plan of the Government, the school is working toward the end of furnishing the very finest type of young men with some previous training in the handling of the lighter machines for the Air Corps of the Army and Navy. All training was given under the Government Civilian Aeronautics Plan at the new airport recently constructed in the City of Bryan and near the campus of the school. The facilities of the school and the airport are now offered the C. A. A. It is the hope that this training may be offered the sixteen and seventeen year old cadets of the school during the new year. FOREIGN STUDENT EXCHANGE In line with the plan of the school to meet advanced educa- tional standards, thought and methods, the institution has taken a step forward in perfecting the exchange of students with the finer academies of the foreign countries, especially in the 37 Pan-American area. Travel combined with actual study of the 1: nguage, geography, governmental and business set up in the different lands has added an international aspect to the work of the school. From Bogota, Colombia, South America, and Mexico City, Mexico, the actual exchange of cadets and instruc- tors has been most successful. Plans are now under Way to develop this exchange to such a point that all foreign language students in the Academy will have each year opportunity for such study for some months in the finer schools of the South and Central Americas and European nations. In such Work the authorities of the Academy simply make further efforts in stimulating the cultural value of education, the broadening influence of travel, the enlarging of the vision of the cadet as to the strengthening of the plan of good will and good neigh- boring now being stressed by the United States Government and in finally showing the young men of this country the great business opportunities abroad. The visits of the cadets from these foreign schools are an- ticipated with much interest and pleasure by the cadets and faculty of the Academy. The recent stay of the fine young men from the most excellent Ramirez Military Academy of Bogota, Colombia, was a source of much pleasure to this in- stitution. The courtesies shown these young men by the var- ious universities of the South and East, as Well as by the busi- ness interests, commercial clubs, Government authorities of both Texas and the Federal Government at Washington, D. C., the Naval Academy at Annapolis and the Military Academy at West Point have been greatly appreciated by this institution. Attention, interest, and cooperative aid have been given this effort by the foreign schools and their Governments to the point that expenses for such travel have been materially re- duced, Such opportunities are therefore in reach of all cadets in the Academy, when vvorld conditions will again permit such trips. GROUNDS CAMPUS The Academy has a Campus of more than 348 acres. On this Campus the buildings of the school have been located' for convenience and with respect to advantages gained by location in the matter of discipline. The school is especially proud of its oak trees which command respect and attention of all vis- itors, and which have entered into the fine traditions of the 33 school. Spacious lawns dotted with shrubbery and blooming flowers and shaded by these magnificent oaks furnish restful retreats for the cadets at all times. Three drill fields, tennis courts, walks, and drives, an athletic field of 20 acres Ccom- pletely fittedl, as well as a gymnasium, furnish the cadets ample room for all recreation. It is the usual thing to see practically every cadet in the school of his own volition enjoying the great out-of-doors every afternoon. RECREATIONAL CENTER On a two hundred sixty4five acre plot just northeast of the Campus proper is located the Recreational Center of the school. Under the direction of a landscape architect the school has built a playground where barbecue pits, tables for picnic lunches, a swimming pool, thirty-five feet by one hundred ten feet, a lake of fourteen acres, stocked with bass and perch, and boats add to the recreational pleasures of the cadets. Each afternoon the cadets and faculty members are to be found swimming or diving in the pool, rowing or fishing in the lake. Much of the rustic beauty of the grounds has been re- tained by the landscapers and the shade of the oaks covers in morning and afternoon the lake front and makes of it a most delightful and inviting spot. While the playground occupies about eighty acres of this tract, on the one hundred eighty remaining acres are located gardens, and chicken, turkey, geese, and duck runs. A registers ed Jersey tubercular tested herd, hogs, sheep, and goats pas- ture these acres, thus affording a variety of meats and vege-- tables for the school tables at all times, - DORMITORY PLAN Special attention is called to the fact that all quarters for cadets are arranged with outside openings and so that only eight to ten students are grouped together. The instructors and their families live in the same buildings on the same floors with the cadets. The influence and atmosphere is home-like and re- fining. Each instructor is directly responsible for the dormitory supervision of from eight to ten boys. The discipline of the school has been made much stronger and finer by the fact that these small groups have the personal touch and individual at- tention of strong men who have had experience and great suc- cess in the handling of students. 89 BUILDINGS The buildings consist of the Administration Building, em- bracing class rooms, study halls, library and offices, Bryan Hall, South Dormitory, the Howell House, the Raysor House, the Mc- Cullough Houseg the Headmaster's House, the James Houseg the Colenel's House, Allen Hall Ig Allen Hall II, Olive Hall No. Ig Olive Hall No. II, the Barron Houseg West Point No. Ig West Point No. 2, the home of the Superintendent, the home of the fcunderg the dining hall, the John Allen Gymnasium, the hos- pital, thirteen two-room bungalows, and a modern dairy barn. The buildings are properly screened, well ventilated, and meet the most rigid test of sanitation with respect to sewerage, etc. The school is very strongly committed to the cottage plan bar- racks, as experience has shown that great homelike and refining influences and stronger discipline can be maintained through such an arrangement. The Administration Building is of stucco, concrete and tile. The latest ideas in lighting, ventilation, sanitation, and modern convenience have been incorporated into a building which is to be the main structure in a quadrangle to be completed in the future. The building is used for class work, study hours, and administrative duties only. Bryan Hall is a three-story strictly fire-proof dormitory. It is constructed of steel reinforced concrete from foundation to roof with inner walls of hollow tile and outer walls of red brick veneer. The ground floor is occupied by the steam heating plant, shower bath and toilets, the armory, etc. On the first, second, and third floors are rooms for sixty boys and the teach- ers and their wives are in charge. These upper floors are reached by four separate concrete stairways. The rooms are all outside rooms with generous provision for light and ventilation. The building is ideally constructed with reference to safety, sanitation, and comfort. John Allen Gymnasium. As a memorial to the life and work of J. H. Allen, one of the founders of the school, alumni and ex-students of the Academy have contributed funds which have built for the school a gymnasium and indoor drill hall, designed by an old Allen cadet. It serves as a center for the athletic and social life of the school. South Dormitory is a frame structure with rooms for twelve boys and one teacher. The building is so planned that the stu- 40 dents are entirely segregated into groups, with teacher's apart- ment between groups. The building is in the form of the letter E and there are no inside rooms. There is a separate entrance for each group of three rooms. The Howell House is a beautiful brick structure on the eastern campus with the finest of accomodations for sixty ca- dets and supervising faculty members-This is known as the beauty spot of the campus. V The Dining Hall is a building in which the school kitchen, store-rooms, refrigerators, serving pantry, and dining room are combined. The building is centrally located on the campus and is approached by a walk sixty feet in width. The dining hall is airy, well-lighted, and is equipped for genteel service. The kitchen is spacious, light, well ventilated, and well equipped. The culinary department is supervised by Mrs. John H, Allen as school dietitian, who has for twenty-five years been "the moth- er" to the school. The greatest of care and interest is taken in the purchase and preparation of the best the market affords. The Superintendent, the teachers and their families take their meals with the cadets. Each teacher has a table around which his family and from eight to ten cadets are grouped. The home plan prevails and the school is known for its fine manners and table etiquette. The Headmastefs House is the home of the Headmaster. A few boys are quartered in the home. The Raysor House is the home of twelve cadets and con- tains two apartments for teachers and their families. It is a steam-heated building. The Colonel's House is the home of the Professor of Mili- tary Science and Tactics and furnishes apartments for six ca- dets. The McCullough House is the school hospital and is the home of the resident nurse. The James House is the home of the Commandant and fur- nishes apartments for a teacher and ten cadets. Allen Hall No. 1 and Allen Hall No. 2 provide for the home of a teacher and twelve cadets in each building. Olive Hall No. 1 and Olive Hall No. 2 provide for the home of two teachers and twenty four cadets in each building. The Barron House has recently been added to the Campus buildings and provides for the home of an instructor and ten cadets. r 41 West Point House No. 1 is a new addition to the Campus and provides for the home of an instructor and ten cadets seek- ing entrance into the ,Government Academies. West Point House No. 2 is a new addition to the Campus and provides for the home of an instructor and ten cadets seek- ing entrance into the Government Academies. The Dairy Barn is a building 100 feet long with concrete floors, screened openings, proper drainage, feed rooms, and milk rooms. It is equipped with modern dairy stanchions for the care of the school's herd of registered Jerseys, and meets the specification in every respect of the State Board of Health in the safe handling of milk. The thirteen bungalows, or tent houses, were built several years ago as an experiment. They are constructed chiefly with a view to sensible open-air living. They are built of wood throughout--floor, walls, roof--but on three sides, four feet above the floor, there are three-foot openings, extending the entire length of the walls. These openings are covered by wire screenings and are provided with heavy canvas curtains of tent cloth which can be closed down tight when necessary. They have electric lights and each room has a brick flue from the ground up. These little bungalows--"puphouses," the boys have dubbed them--have proved very popular. They appeal to a red-blooded boy who likes plenty of fresh air. As a rule, only Seniors or older boys have the privilege of choosing them. The home of Mrs. John H. Allen, and the home of the Superintendent, N. B. Allen, complete the group of campus buildings. ,These homes are at all times open to the students and their parents. The rooms in the dormitories are neatly and comfortably furnished. Single iron bedspare used with thick, new all-cotton mattresses especially made for us. Each mattress is reclean- ed and reworked each school year. Solid oak dressers, tables, and chairs complete the furnishings. Teachers have their living rooms on the same floors with the boys in the dormitories, and are present day and night. More attention is given by the school to the selection of a proper room-mate for a cadet than to the selection of his room. COURSE OF STUDY ACADEMY DEPARTMENT The courses of study are planned to meet the entrance re- quirements of the higher colleges and universities or to give the 42 students thorough training in the essentials of a practical edu- cation. Students are not expected to take all the studies cata- logued, as some of the branches under each year are elective. The number of daily recitations regularly required is four, and spelling and letter-writing in additiong the maximum num- ber of full studies permitted is five. Any variation from this rule will be allowed only by special permission of the Head- master and on satisfactory evidence of the necessities of the case. A minimum of seventeen college entrance units is required for graduation. Of the 17 units necessary for graduation, 1115 are of "required" studies, as follows: English 4, History 2, Mathe- matics 35, Science 1, Military Science 1, the remaining SMZ units may be made up from "electives" chosen from the courses given below, as follows: History, 1 or 2 units additional, Math- ematics, IA or 1 unit additional, Science, 1 or 2 units additionalg Foreign Language, 2, 3, or 4 units. Students coming from accredited high schools will be al- lowed to substitute for any one of the "elective" units a unit in any other subject in which the particular school may be af- filiatedg but graduation will not be granted on less than one full year's work in the Academy. All candidates for gradua- tion Will be required to take at least one course in Mathematics and one in English in the Academy. ' Students coming from unaffiliated schools may be admitted into the Academy and given credit by examination for all work previously taken, provided they continue to pursue the same studies in the Academy. For example, a boy from an unaffil- iated school may get credit for Work done in History or in Latin, only if he continues the study of History or Latin in the Academy. Special attention is given to the preparation of students de- siring entrance into the U. S. Military Academy, U. S. Naval Academy, and the U. S. Coast Guard Academy. For such stu- dents a special class is maintained with a special schedule, and special textbooks recommended by these Government academies are used. Special tutorial classes are given cadets coming from for- eign countries in the study of English. Special preparation is given to students wishing entrance 43 into any institution of higher learning in the country, and especially does the Academy stress courses leading to entrance into particular courses at the Texas. A. 8: M. College. The Academy's certificate is accepted,- in place of entrance examinations, by all colleges and universities which admit on certificateg but no recommendation to college will be given to a student whose general average for any course for the Senior Years is below seventy-five per cent and who fails to meet the requirements as to grade points. CERTIFICATION TO COLLEGE Students who complete the required courses and otherwise satisfy the requirements for graduation will be certified to Col- lege only on the attainment of a certain number of grade points in their academic work. Grade points are obtained as follows: For an average of A in any course, 4 grade points per session hourg For an average of B in any course, 2 grade points per ses- sion hourg For a grade of C, no grade points. A student who completes the four years of academic work must amass a total of 24 grade points, 6 of which must be done in his Senior Year and two of the six must be in English. TRANSFER OF COLLEGE STUDENTS TO HIGHER INSTITUTIONS Upon the completion of college courses and with the fullfill- ment of requirements as to grade points, the credits of Allen cadets are transferred by the School to the Texas A. and M. College, and certificates of transfer will then be made by the Registrar of the Texas A. and M. College in the name of the student directly to the institution which he may wish to enter. COLLEGE DEPARTMENT For some time the Academy has realized that the rapidly growing development of the Junior College has introduced an- other factor in the educational equation. More and more the college and university are making entrance into the freshman class a selective process. Only the upper third or even fourth of the graduation class of the high school is admitted, the rest to continue their education elsewhere. It is also a fact no one conversant with the situation will deny, that many students 44 enter college, even under the restrictions mentioned above, who are not prepared to do college Work in the environment of mod- ern college life. Their age, temperament, and preparation all operate against them. They are forced to shift for themselves, to sink or swim. There is little human contact, personal inter- test, or intimate supervision, in the highly complex organiza- tions of the large college or university. Result: An appalling percentage of failures in the Freshman Class. To the end that this need may be supplied to the students who enter the Acad- emy in order to prepare for college, we are pleased to announce that an Extension Center has been established in the Academy by the A. and M. College of Texas. Under this arrangement a year of freshman college work is given, the courses being iden- tical in scope and content with similar courses at the A. and M. College. This work is, therefore, given under the supervis- ion and direction of the proper authorities of the A. and M. College and full credit is given for it. The advantage of such an arrangement is obvious. A high school graduate can take his first year of college work under the extremely favorable conditions of study and supervision existing in the Academy and lose no time in so doing. Again, a boy who lacks one or two units of graduating from his high school can enter the Acad- emy, complete his high school course and at the same time sup- plement his work with one or more college courses for which he receives the proper credit. We believe that this arrange- ment will have a strong appeal to many parents who, While they plan to send their sons to college, realize that they are not yet ready to enter the full and untrammeled liberty of college life. That the Academy has been justified in its stand and be- lief in this matter is evidenced by the pleasing record being made by our former cadets in other institutions of higher learn- ing in the continuation of their college work. COURSE OF STUDY JUNIOR DEPARTMENT While the work of the Academy is organized on a standard four-year basis, provision is made for preparatory work. This corresponds in the main to the sixth and seventh grades of the best public school systems. Since it is so essential to have the proper foundation for college thought by giving a thorough high school course, it is just as necessary that the proper foundation 45 be laid for a successful high school career. The demand on the part of the thinking public for individual instruction of young- sters has increased very noticeably during the last few years due to the fact that business conditions and competition take practically the entire day of a business man actually at his busi- ness or with his business interests. The evenings, therefore, cannot be spent at home With the boy, for social contacts neces- sary to business must be made at this time. It is at this for- mative period in a boy's life that he needs the aid of a school which has organized its courses to give the soundest education- al training backed by character building influences with home- like, refining and cultural impress. The greatest work done in the Academy has been with these plastic youngsters who are passing through the stage of hero Worship in their attitude toward their instructors, and Who can be so pleasingly led and directed in their development. The Academy is happy to take the responsibility of the young- ster from the mother and father, who for lack of time cannot devote to him the thought and time necessary for his proper training in this age and Who, if they could find time for such work, would find themselves unable to give the needed instruc- tion with any of the advanced education plans or ideas. They are simply out of touch with the program of education as it -is conducted today. The course of study includes English Grammar and Com- position, Literature, Texas and United States History, Geogra- phy, Arithmetic, Junior Science, Health, Reading, Spelling, and Writing. It is open to boys who have completed the fifth grade or its equivalent in the grammar schools. Special attention is paid to these beginners 5 they are taught by the same instruc- tors and are given greater care and oversight than are the more advanced students. Much time is spent in teaching the boy how to study and in developing in the youngster the analytical turn of mind. Frankly, We prefer to have a boy come to us be- fore he has become "spoiled" by indifference, lack of interest, poor instruction, or the lack of the many other elements which enter into the proper foundation of a happy, sound school ca- reer. The success of the school with these youngsters has been remarkable. . 46 ACADEMY DEPARTMENT First Year . English I Q51 I-I Grammar-Comp. -Lit. 2. Ancient History Q51 8. Arithmetic Q51 4.

PRE-INDUCTION COURSES War Mathematics Aviation 47 DETAILED STATEMENT OF COURSES OF STUDY BY SUBJECTS ACADEMY DEPARTMENT ENGLISH It is primarily the aim of the English Department to pre- pare boys to meet the demands of the colleges in their entrance requirements in English. To that end, a four-year course has been arranged in which a Wide selection of books from the uni- form college entrance list is carefully studied and thoroughly reviewed. It is the endeavor of the Department to have the tests and examinations given at least equal to the college en- trance examinations in severity, and to have the themes in class based upon topics measuring up to the college entrance stan- dard. The practice in Composition, however, is extended to subjects drawn from current events and from everyday experi- ences of the boys as well as from books studied in the class- room, but with the emphasis stressed upon the latter, in order to satisfy the requirements of the colleges. It is the endeavor of the English Department to cultivate in the students an appreciative enjoyment of good literature, as well as the power to express themselves correctly and effective- ly. The Library offers, in its collection of books, a wide field to those who wish to do collateral study or to extend their reading generally. FIRST YEAR E C11 Grammar-Thoroughness in the essentials of English grammar is a prerequisite to satisfactory work in all higher branches. Few pupils, on entering the high school, have an adequate knowledge of the subject. Duringthe first year of our course, two periods a week are given to drill in the parts of speech, inflection, and sentence structure and analysis. C21 Composition-Weekly themes are required in compo- sition, based on the student's work in literature or on his per- sonal experiences. These exercises are carefully criticised by the teacher and corrected by the pupil. 13D Literature-fab For Class Study-Scott's Lady of the Lake, Homer's The Odyssey, or The Illiadg Shakespeare's Julius Caesar 5 Longfellow's Evangeline, Stevenson's Treasure Islandg Poe's The Goldbugf' Other pieces of like character may be added at the discretion of the instructor. 48 tbl For Outside Reading-The requirement for individ- ual reading is a minimum of 20 points per year from the approv- ed list of books represented by different types of literature such as Scott's Marmion, Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream, SteVenson's Kidnapped, or David Balfour. In addition to outside reading, memorizing of both prose and verse not studied in class will be required in amounts suited to the stu- dent. ' SECOND YEAR Q11 Grammar-Composition-One period a week is given to grammar. Two recitations a week will be devoted to careful work in composition, with theme writing based on the pupi1's work in literature or on current events. Practically the entire year will be given to training in paragraph writing with, of course, incidental study of punctuation. C25 Literature tal For Class Study-The Ancient Mar- iner, Old English Ballads, The Vicar of Wakefield, Silas Marner, Poe's Tales, Julius Caesar, Washington's Farewell Address, Ir- ving's Life of Goldsmith. tbl For Outside Reading - David Copperfield, Tom Brown's School Days, Lorna Doone, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Last Days of Pompeii, The Little Minister, The Man With the Hoe, Flander"s Field, Songof the Chattachoochie, Recessional. THIRD YEAR C15 Composition-Rhetoric-Many short themes are writ- ten, based on the student's personal knowledge and interest. Current topics as represented in periodical literature are used freely. There will be much re-writing of paragraphs with a View to gaining flexibility and fluency of Written expression. Tanner's Composition and Rhetoric is used as a text. Q23 Literature-tAmerican yearj -Outline study of the whole field, with selections from representative authors as fol- lows: Franklin, Irving, Cooper, Hawthorne, Emerson, Longfel- low, Whittier, Lowell, Poe, Lanier, and others. Payne's Amer- ican Literature and selections from American Literature give the background for this year's work. A study of the short story is made, with selections from Irving, Hawthorne, Poe, Stockton, Bret Hart, Freeman, and O. Henry. 49' ' FOURTH YEAR CID Composition-In the Senior Year much practice work is done in theme writing with emphasis divided between argu- ment and criticism. One month during the year is devoted to a rapid general review of grammar. Text: Tanner's Composi- tion and Rhetoric. C27 Literature--A survey course in English Literature is given with the study of Literature and Life Book IV by Green- law and Miles. fab For Class Study-Hamlet and the Tempest, Carlyle's Essay on Burns, Essays on Elia Cselectionsj. Cbj For Outside Reading-Pride and Prejudice, Henry Esmond, Adam Bede, Jane Eyre, Sheridan's The Rivals, certain selections from English Literature including two Elizabethan dramas, six novels, and 200 lines of poetry must be read and reported on. HISTORY The course in History embraces Ancient, Mediaeval and Modern, English, and American History. The course in American History includes a tudy of Civics. Beginning with the organization of the local town council the study leads up through the National Government. By constant reference to present conditions and concrete examples, this part of the work is made practical and interesting. Valuable drill is offered in the collecting of data, the preparing of reports or assigned topics, etc. J Map books are required in each course and leading maga- zines are used as an aid to the study of current events. The preparation of special themes and systematic collateral reading are also required in order to stimulate interest and encourage the pupil to further research work. MATHEMATICS The course includes Arithmetic, Advanced Business Arith- metic, Algebra, Plane and Solid Geometry, and Plane Trigonom- etry. In each of these branches thoroughness is required. The mere solving of problems is not the end soughtg but from the lowest class in Arithmetic to the classes in Geometry and Trig- onemetry, great stress is laid on logical thinking and mastery of principles. 5 so Notebooks are used in all courses in mathematics and spe- cial attention is given to the solving of original problems that bear directly on modern life. SCIENCE L . The Academy has well equipped laboratories for work in Science. Three courses are offered: General Science, Physics, and Chemistry. Emphasis is placed on individual workg field excursions and inspections of the town's industrial plants are made. C19 General Science-Sixty to eighty experiments are performed and carefully recorded in notebooks. The object of the course is to familiarize the student with the more common phenomena of every-day life, to give an understanding of the principles underlying them, and to afford an introduction to the scientific methods of investigation. Q23 Physics-Milikan, Gale and Pyle's Elements of Phy- sics and laboratory manual are used. Forty to forty-five ex- periments are performed by the students in the laboratory. At- tention is given to the solving of practical problems. The spirit of independent investigation is encouraged. C31 Chemistry-The course deals with the leading facts, laws, theories, and applications of modern chemistry. Funda- mental principles and the experimental basis of the science will be emphasized. The course is based upon High School Chem- istry by Masters and Floyd, and the laboratory Work will be given according to the manual written to accompany this text. LATIN First Year-The entire year is devoted to the study of the Beginner's Book. The student is carefully drilled in the declen- sions and conjugations, and special attention is given to the ac- quiring of correct pronunciation. Frequent written exercises in simple prose composition are required. Penick and Proctor's First Latin Book is used. Second Year-The first six or eight weeks are spent in re- viewing the easy Latin begun the previous year. The remain- der of the year is spent in reading Caesar's Gallic Wars-three or four books, according to the ability of the class. During the reading of Caesar, the student is thoroughly drilled in noun con- structions and the uses of the subjunctive mode. A careful 51 study of indirect discourse is made. Weekly exercises in Latin prose composition are required throughout the year. Penick and Proctor's Latin Second Year is used. Third Year-The four Catalines, the Pro Archia, the De Imperio Cn. Pompeii, and one other oration are used as the basis of the course. Emphasis is upon nicety of translation and the English rhetorical forms which best render, without aping, the Latin. Prose composition is continued throughout the year. Sanford, Scott dz Beeson's Third Latin Book and Bennett's Composition are used. Fourth Year-Six books of Virgil are read, principally as Literature, careful drill is given in the dactylic hexameter, both oral and Written and in the poetic construction. Prose composition is continued throughout the year, the latter part of the session being devoted to the Writing of con- tinuous prose, based on Caesar and Cicero. A study is made of the classic myths with their application to literature. SPANISH AND FRENCH Modern Language courses are arranged to meet the en- trance requirements of the leading colleges, and at the same time to give a practical Working knowledge of the languages. The instructors in Spanish and French are excellently qual- ified both by preparation and experience for their work. They speak the languages fluently and combine the conversational method with careful grammatical drill and practice in reading. The plans of the exchange of cadets with foreign academies gives each cadet an opportunity to perfect in his teens his speak- ing knowledge of any of the modern languages. SPANISH First Year-Essentials of Spanish grammar are taught. Pronunciation and grammatical forms are stressed by frequent drills. The language is approached more by the direct method than by the text book study and translation. Hill and Ford's First Course in Spanish is used. Second Year-During the second year the Spanish Gram- mar is finished, more extensive reading is provided, and a composition text, which contains a good grammatical review is studied. During the latter half of the year modern prose clas- sics are read. ' 52 Third Year-In the third year additional work in reading, writing and speaking the language is done. Special attention is given to letter writing, newspaper and magazine reading, prac- tical conversation, and dictation work. A large amount of memory work is done in all three years. A thorough review of Grammar is given. Valera's El Comendador, Mendoza 8m Weem's Un Verano en Espana are used. FRENCH l First Year-The aim is to give the student a reasonable facility in understanding oral French and in reading simple modern French prose and verse. As a means of accomplishing this end attention is first given to correct pronunciation. Then by daily oral and Written drills the essentials of grammar and the more important idiomatic expressions are stressed. The text used is French Book One by Smith and Roberts. Second Year-During the second year French grammar is continued and more extensive reading is provided by the use of select books and occasional magazine articles. PRE-INDUCTION COURSES For the special benefit of cadets who will soon enter into the armed forces, special courses in War Mathematics, Phy- sics, Pre-Aviation Ground School Work, and a short study in preparation for examinations for each of the Army and Navy Specialized Training Courses will be given. PUBLIC SPEAKING Today, more than ever, men must know how to talk. Pub- lic life requires it, business life demands it, society expects it. The day of the elocutionist is gone, but the day of the public speaker is at hand. Young men must know how to speak in public, argue without rancor, and to take part in ordinary social conversation. These are the three aims of this depart- ment. The students are trained to conduct the chapel exercises, tn make "pep" speeches, 'to present ideals, and to encourage their fellow students. Public reading of the Scriptures and the preparing of short talks for young people's meetings form another part of the course. ' 53 DEBATE Debating as a school activity is receiving more and more attention. In order to encourage it inter-company debates are often held in chapel. Though debating is sponsored by the Department of Public Speaking ,the elimination contests to select the school teams are open to the entire student body, and it is the wish of the authorities that all students take this op- portunity for valuable training. DECLAMATION Another enjoyable phase of the work in Public Speaking is the series of contests in declamation. The Junior Declamation contests are open to cadets in the lower half of the school while the Senior Declamation contests are held for cadets in the upper half of the school. The winners of the first and second places in the final Junior contests are awarded the Dansby and Academy medals respectively. The winner of the first place in the final Senior contest is awarded each year the Henderson Declaimer's medal CThe Hon. F. L, Henderson of Bryan a for- mer member of the State Board of Educationl. The second place medal is awarded by a close friend of the school, Judge W. S. Barron, who is District Judge of the 85th Judicial District of Texas, who is likewise an old Allen boy. DRAMATICS Any student may take part in the school's Dramatics. Short plays and other forms of entertainment are given before the student body, and plays will be given each year in the Bryan theatres. It is the hope of the Department to teach the boys poise and self-confidence by means of these public performances. During recent years the Allen Players have been invited to participate in the annual tournaments held by the Little Theatre of Texas, and to stage plays in out-of-town theatres.

ACCELERATED PROGRAM MILITARY SCIENCE AND TACTICS It is required that all cadets entered in the Academy must take Military Science I Sz II as the basic course during the first and second years of their attendance at the Academy, or if they are transfers from other institutions with former ROTC train- ing, they must satisfactorily finish the full basic course of Military Science I and II before being qualified for the advanced course of Military Science III and IV. In some special cases permission has been secured from the proper military head- quarters for accelerating the course by taking Military Science 57 III and IV concurrently with full credit. This authorization from higher authority cannot be promised in advance by the school. Young men who, however, may be required to enter tl.e military service before they have opportnuity to complete thoroughly Military Science III and IV may accelerate the courses for their own knowledge and benefit by taking Military Science III and IV under special approval of the Professor of Military Science and Tactics and the Headmaster of the school. When this is done, however, full credit for the two years cannot be given. The knowledge of the courses Will, however, be of great advantage to these young men after induction into the armed forces. MUSIC Unusual advantages are offered in our Music Department. The director is not only an enthusiastic and capable leader of boys, but a thorough and competent musician and composer as well. His years of experience make him a most valuable man in the Academy, and his position among the musicians of Texas adds great prestige to his work here. Boys who wish to stress their musical studies will find Allen Academy an ideal school. They have the advantages of taking instruction on various instruments. Besides their private practice, the boys will have the opportunity to play in the band ard orchestra, which are in constant demand in Bryan and neighboring cities. The musical organizations in the school have brought great credit to the Academy. The victories in competi- tion and the keen pleasure afforded the corps have made these organizations strong links in the development of the desired spirit and life of the school. Our song services during our chapel and Y. M. C. A. exer- cises are a source of great pleasure and satisfaction to the boys, Sacred and popular songs are used. The "Allen Spirit" song, composed by one of our directors and set to words by one of our instructors, has become so very popular with the cadets that the mere mention of the song is a sign for joyful enthusiasm. Thus we endeavor by various means to develop the musical sen- timent in the boys' hearts. THE BAND-ORCHESTRA A military school finds a good military band very essential. While few schools can maintain a band of full instrumentation, 58 the Academy has developed one of the best balanced musical organizations in the State. The Academy bands have not been defeated in contests, and at the' meetings of the Texas Band Teachers' Association, Eastern Division, it has been repeatedly winner over all academy, junior college, college, and university bands entered in the contest, and by virtue of its high score it was designated for five times in the past ten years as the Of- ficial Band for the East Texas Chamber of Commerce. For a number of years this band of cadet musicians has had many demands made upon it by the Service Clubs and various organizations of the State. It has been the official Lions' Club Pand of Texas, and visited the International Convention at Miami, Florida, where it was made the International Lions' Club Band in 1927. It has been undefeated in contests for the past ten years and has been the Official East Texas Chamber of Commerce band for five out of the past ten years. The band was designated by the Rotary Clubs of this district as Official Band in 1933 and was carried by the Chamber of Commerce of Bryan on summer tours which has carried it over more than 4,200 miles of Texas, where concerts were given in more than 160 of the cities of Texas. It has been carried into Mexico and down the Atlantic Coast to Florida, and has played to 'estimated audiences of more than 250,000 when the guests of the various organizations and Service Clubs of Texas. The orchestras of the School have been engaged on numer- ous occasions by the larger hotels of Texas and by other orga- nizations for special entertainments and one of them enjoyed re- cently a splendid trip to England, France, Italy, Belgium, and other sections of Europe. It was selected by one of the largest steamship companies out of New York City as an entertaining orchestra on this tour and it gave concerts on board the liners to and from England. This trip gave the cadets an eight Weeks' engagement and furnished pleasant entertainment and a most interesting experience. DIRECTED STUDY Students are required to do two to three hours of study in the study-hall, under the direction of a teacher, in the prepara- tion of the l'l101'l'0W,S lessons. Only those who maintain satisfac- tory standards of work and conduct are permitted to study in 59 their rooms, and the study hours of these students, as well as of those in the study-hall, are supervised by the teachers. At weekly faculty meetings the work of each boy in the school is checked and discussed, and study hall lists are revised, according to the standing and progress of each cadet. REPORTS To further aid the teachers in a knowledge of the progress of each boy, frequent reviews and written tests on the work passed over are held. All students who do not show satisfac- tory progress and understanding of the lessons passed over are given further opportunity and help to make up deficiencies, after which a second test is given. Quarterly reports, based on these tests, on the daily class work, and on the quarterly writ- ten examinations will be sent to the parents. These regular reports will be supplemented, from time to time, by letters from the Advisers and the Headmaster with a view to the mutual understanding and closest cooperation be- tween the school and the home. SCI-IOLARSHIPS More than 60 colleges and universities of the country offer scholarships to be awarded annually to the graduates of the Academy who meet the requirements of the scholarship. Some of the schools offering these scholarships are the University of Texas, Texas A, Sz M.

From year to year the best drilled company in the corps becomes custodian of this trophy. Silver bands are placed on the staff showing the company and company commander with the year of the winning. The interest and desire to win this honor has become one of the pleasing tra- ditions in the school. The Griffith Platoon Commanders' Cup-One of the most handsome trophies offered is the Griffith Cup, which is the gift of Mr. J. S. Griffith of Houston, Texas. A large silver cup has been presented to the school by Mr. Griffith and the honor of winning this trophy carries with it for the next school year the custody of this cup, and the honor of having engraved upon it the most efficient .platoon with its commander's name and rank. The different platoons and their commanders in the cadet corps manifest unusual interest in the winning of the honor which is decided on Military Day during Commencement Week.

Bennett Cup-Captain Fred C. Bennett, now in the United States Army and a graduate of recent years, offers a beautiful cup to be given each year to the cadet most efficient in Military Science and Tactics and a member of the Band. DISTINCTIONS Appointment to West Point and Annapolis- Appointments to the United States Military and Naval Academies are granted to the school by the War Department and Navy Department, respectively, in conformity with exist' ing regulations of these departments regarding the appoint- ment of honor graduates of Honor Military Schools to these academies. Cadets in the Senior and College courses who have done most excellent work in scholarship and who show qualiites of leadership are eligible for these distinctions. The National Honor Society for Secondary Schools-The Allen Chapters of Junior and Senior Rank- There have been established in the Academy the Allen Chapters of the National Honor Society of Secondary Schools. The Senior Chapter admits only seniors and juniors in the Acad- emy courses. The Junior Chapter admits cadets in the lower half of the school. Both organizations give further recognition to the Academy through the National Organization. Election to these organizations is based on the four cardinal principles of life--Scholarship, Character, Leadership, and Service. No honor conferred by the school excels that represented by this society. It represents the fundamental objectives for which schools are instituted and gives recognition to those who have attained most nearly the desired ends. Other honors at the dis- 63 posal of the school are only partial in the sense that they recog- nize specialized ability, skill, or talent, but this society looks upon education as a total product measured by the four dimen- sions of life. The aim of the Allen Chapter shall be to hold before the school such motives as shall induce others to aspire to scholarly habits, to enlist in worthwhile service, and to lead forward in all things that shall advance the welfare of the school. Membership in the chapters is limited. The emblems of. the society are keystone charms with the distinguishing letters standing for the four cardinal principles of the Society. THE NATIONAL ATHLETIC HONOR SOCIETY FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS-The Allen Chapter There is maintained in the Academy the Allen Chapter of the National Athletic Honor Society for Secondary Schools, thus giving recognition to the athlete in the Academy through this national organization. Membership in this society is limited to athletes who have been awarded during the past three semesters of continuous work in the Academy at least one letter in a major sport or two letters in minor ,sports and who have maintained an average in scholarship above the general average of the cadet corps. Distinguished Students- The names of all students who make a general average of "A", 90 per cent or better, in their daily recitations, and in their quarterly and final examinations in any branch, will be published in the catalogue under the head of "Distinguished Stu- dents," provided their deportment also be excellent, . Students who make an average grade of "B," 80 per cent or better, in all studies, will have their names printed in the "Honor List." The School Letter- The school letter is awarded by the Athletic Council of the school to cadets who have distinguished themselves in competi- tions as members of the varsity athletic teams of football, base- ball, basketball, track, rifle marksmaqship, and boxing. The in- tramural letter is issued to outstanding members of such teams in the intramural program of athletics. 64 Distinguished Student Scholarship- The Academy offers a scholarship which can be worth 8100.00 to each student during the school year. This scholar- ship is open to all students in school and any cadet who has made an average grade of "A" in each of his courses and whose de- portment also is excellent during the last quarter of his school work will be eligible to receive the benefits of this scholarship during the first quarter of the next school year. A credit of 325.00 will be given to him for the first quarter of the following school year on his tuition account. If during the first quarter of the school year this young man continues to do all "A" work, he will be eligible to receive another credit of 525.00 on his tuition account for the second quarter, and so on through the year. Should any boy during any quarter of the year do an all "A" grade of work he will, therefore, receive a scholarship valued at 325.00 as a credit on the following quarter of his school year. In this manner the scholarship plan offers to each and every boy another incentive to do good work, and a plan by which a 'boy may help defray a part of his expense through school. LIBRARY The methods pursued in the study of Literature, History, and the Sciences require constant use of the reference books in the library. A valuable part of modern education consists in training the student to find quickly, select. and classify for his use the rich treasures of knowledge stored in books. Too often we find students in our high schools even unable to use an un- abridged dictionary satisfactorily-to say nothing of less famil- iar books of reference. But the school should do more than teach the use of refer- ence books. It should cultivate a real taste for literatureg and, by means of a well-selected library, it should tempt the boy into the rich and pleasant fields of thought found both in prose and poetry. In addition to a well-selected list of the very best- Works of reference, including the latest encyclopedias, gazetteers, diction- aries, etc., we are adding from time to time carefully selected books of history, travel, poetry, and general literature. The Bryan Carnegie Library affords pupils of the Acad- emy still further facilities for investigating themes assigned for essays, debates, etc., as well as for general reading. 65 PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT The first duty of a boys' training school is to provide for the proper physical development of every boy in it. A man with a strong mind in a puny body is but little better off than a man with a puny mind in a strong bodyg either is but half a man. In addition to the required daily military drill, all students will be encouraged to take regular physical exercises in the open air, in the form of outdoor games, gymnasium work, the running of the school's obstacle course, or other exercises as the physical director may prescribe. Through physical examinations our records show that the average boy in the cadet corps gains from nine to fifteen pounds in weight during the school year and leaves the school a strong and more ruddy appearing young man. I PHYSICAL EXAMINATION At the opening of the school year and at other periods during the term each cadet will be given a very thorough physical examination. This is demanded by the War Depart- ment and required by the school. Such examinations have been very helpful in the physical upbuilding of the boy, and recommendations made by the examining physicians and con- sulting specialists will be closely followed in an effort to cor- rect any physical defects determined. No surgical operations will be attempted without the consent of the cadet's parents. Reports of these examinations will be mailed to the home. HQSPITAL ACCOMODATIONS The Academy has its own hospital on its campus. No student will be permitted to be absent from classes unless such absence is recommended by the school physician. Any boy not feeling well enough to attend to regular duties should and must remain in the hospital until discharged by the school physician. In cases requiring special care or of an emergency nature cadets will be removed upon the advice of the school physician at the expense of the parent to the St. Joseph Hos- pital in Bryan. In cases of serious sickness the parents of the cadets will be notified by either the school physician or the superintendent. 68 NURSES A Registered Nurse is in constant attendance at the school hospital. Cadets who enter the hospital will be charged an in- firmary fee of 51.50 per day and in cases where special atten- tion is needed the nurses and physicians of St. Joseph's Hospital in Bryan are available to the cadet. In such cases the parent is charged directly by the hospital existing prices for physicians, surgeons, nurses, laboratory and hospital fees. The school feels that it has a most unusual nurse whose experience justifies the confidence implied in her selection. SCHOOL PHYSICIAN-CLINIC FACILITIES The school has had for years as its school physician, Dr. R. B. Ehlinger, F. A. C. S., surgeon and practicing physician in Bryan. The usual facilities in the Ehlinger-Grant Clinic Build- ing are available for the care of the cadet in any sickness. In the Ehlinger-Grant Clinic is located also Dr. W. B. Cline, who has long been the eye, ear, nose, and throat specialist for the school. ATHLETICS The Academy recognizes the value of school athletics and makes ample provision for clean, manly sports. The school that fails to do this ignores one of the great forces in every normal boy's life. It is natural and right for boys to love a good game. This love of sport, if properly controlled and directed by Wise and sympathetic teachers, can be made a powerful influence, not only in developing the boy's body and maintaining health, but also in awakening and disciplining many of the highest qualities of mind and heart. The Academy has an exceptionally fine athletic field, quarter-mile cinder track, football grounds, baseball diamond, tennis and basketball courts, an indoor gymnasium and volley ball courts. The school has an honorable record for fair play and high achievement in athletic contests. We put literary work be- fore athletics and we put honor before victory, but when a boy has done his duty in the classroom, he is entitled to a good game on the athletic field, and the one will help perhaps as much as the other to make a man of him. For many years the Academy has been a leader in ath- 67 letics. It has won more brilliant victories and holds more records, trophies, banners and championship honors than any other school of like character in Texas. The finest results, however, have been obtained by the school in its intra-mural athletic program where each cadet, small or large, enters into an athletic program which will accomodate him according to his age, size and prowess. MORAL AND RELIGIOUS ATMOSPHERE If We should single out one thing above all others for which the Academy has stood, it would be the maintainance oi a wholesome, moral and righteous atmosphere. The highest ideal of the school is to teach boys the absolute necessity of right living if one is to be either happy or useful. Sir Gala- had's exclamation, "My strength is as the strength of ten be- cause my heart is pure," is as true of a young knight of the twentieth century as it was of the fifth century. And while we do not presume or desire to influence the particular church affiliation of any boy, we frankly maintain that a really moral life is difficult, if not impossible, apart from religious worship. Accordingly, we require every boy in the school to attend Sunday School and Church Services regularly, each being re- quired to attend that church with which he or his parents are affiliated. Y. M. C. A. From its very inception the Academy has encouraged in every way the active expression of religious life. Therefore, one of the finest organizations of the school is found in its Y. M. C. A. Each Sunday evening in the school auditorium there is held a meeting wherein the cadets and faculty of the institution enter into the analysis of the problems facing the cadet corps. Frequent visitors, singers and musicians from Bryan, Texas, A. and M. College and from many cities of the State add interest to these programs which are planned and supervised by the cadet officers of the organization. Inesti- mable is the good which has come, to the school and to the in- dividual cadet through these programs. Each cadet in the Academy should become a volunteer member of this Association. For years the Y.. M. C. A. organization of, for and by the students has been maintained and it has stood a positive, constructive force for "Whatsoever things are good." 68 CHAPEL One of the strongest traditions in the Academy is per- haps the custom of beginning the school work of each day with a thirty-minute chapel period. More boys have been influenced and inspired through this medium than through any other. The ministers of the town, our own faculty mem- bers, and the really big men of the State bring to these ser- vices messages of experience and vision which inspire boys to achievement. Arrangements have been made whereby the strongst ministers, greatest educators, and the most success:- ful business men of the State will be brought to these services in order that students may get in a first-band way the benefits to be derived from the experiences and counsel of noted men. The boys that have gone out from the school are unanimous in their opinion that the chapel services, as conducted in the Academy, are the most helpful exercises and bring to bear the greatest influence upon the student body. These exercises are varied but are always religious in nature, and they are filled with the purpose of carrying home to the boys some great lesson. They are very helpful to the faculty in mould- ing and shaping the spirit and morale, and the religious side of the school life. DEMOCRATIC SPIRIT As a mark of a good school for an American boy, we put a truly democratic spirit second only to a morally and spiritual soundness. Snobbishness cannot survive in the atmosphere of Allen Academy. Each boy is put absolutely upon a basis of personal worth, whether he be the son of a millionaire or of -a poor man. We try to make the Academy "a school for gentle- men," Whether these gentlemen be in patches or in broadcloth. UNIFORMS Each student enrolled in the R. O. T. C. will be furnished by the War Department one complete uniform. X The Government has been very liberal in supplying the R. O. T. C. units during the past few years and the school is assured of the same generous terms for the coming session. The cadets are in uniform at all times while in school. This makes the purchase of citizen's clothes unnecessary. There is consequently a great saving in the boy's clothing outfit. Therefore, on entrance each cadet will be required to have 69 additional articles of uniform. These articles are obtained by contract in Bryan insuring uniformity in color, material and de- sign at the lowest possible prices. All quotations have not been received. However, the approximate cost will be 37500. They shall consist of: 1 Belt, Waist, Web 1 Blouse fNon-R. O. T. C. Cadetsl 1 Belt, Barracks 2 Ornaments, R. O. T. C., Button 2 Trousers, Serge 1 Patch, Allen shield, Cloth 2 Trousers, cotton 8 Patches, R.O.T.C. shield, Cloth 2 Cravats, Khaki "Sta-tie" 2 Shoes, Cordovan, Oxford, officer 1 Cravat, black , toe 1 Cap, Serge, Dress 6 Shirts, Khaki, Regulation 1 Cap, Overseas Type 2 Shirts, White Regulation 2 Ornaments, Cross-guns 1 Pair Coveralls Special Regulation 2 Ornaments, Allen shield, Enamel 1 Jacket, Regulation 1 Trench Coat A 1 Gymnasium suit, Regulation Officers Additional All cadet officers will furnish themselves with one complete serge uni- form Army Commissioned Officer Type. One complete khaki cotton uni- form Army Commissioned Officer Type. A cadet is not required to have an overcoat but should one be purchased it must be an Allen regulation overcoat. The wearing of sheep skin coats or any other civilian overcoat will be prohibited. A regulation rain coat is not required but when one is worn it must be strictly a rain coat and not an overcoat. The regulation jacket takes the place of a top sweater. THINGS TO BRING Each cadet should bring the following articles, each dis- tinctly marked: 8 Sheets for single bed f54x90 4 Suits Pajamas inchesj 1 Pair Bed-room Slippers 1 Pillow Soap, Soap box 4 Pillow Slips 12 Handkerchiefs 2 Cloth Bags, Laundry 4 White Shirts with Collars Hair Brush, Clothes Brush, Attached Tooth Brush, Tooth Brush 10 Towels CBathJ Container 10 Towels fHandl 2 Pair Woolen Blankets, Khaki 1 Shoe Brush Preferred 1 Small Rug n 1 Bathrobe Clothing necessary for golf, tennls, 8 Suits Underwear swimming, etc. At least one bed spread must be purchased at the school. Each boy, of course, should bring a Bible with him, he should bring also a good dictionary unless he prefers to pur- chase one in Bryan. Table covers, dresser scarfs, and regulation window curtains are requested, also light ecru shades to be purchased at the school. 70 RULES AND REGULATIONS No number of specific rules can cover the pupil's entire conduct 3 hence only underlying principles and general regu- lations are stated. Further guidance of a cadet in his daily routine is given in the school's "Special Orders." In every case of discipline, the question will be, not whether some specific rule has been violated, but whether the student's conduct has been in accord with the highest sense of honor and right. Any student, harmful to the school may be dismissed with- out Waiting for an overt act. No married young man may enter the institution and any cadet upon marriage will be dismissed from the institution. Every student, by the fact of his entrance, subscribes to the following regulations: To be regular and punctual in his attendance at school and upon all the exercises of his classes. To refrain from use of tobacco, to use no bad languageg and to engage in no quarreling or fighting. To have about his person, room, or in any available place, nc unlawful weapons, cards, dice, or any game of chance, and not to engage in playing any of these. To attend Sunday Services at one of the churches. Not to be absent from his premises at night without due permission. Immediately upon arrival students must report at the office of the Academy. This rule applies to students return- ing on leave as well as to new students. Leave of absence to visit home or any other place outside of Brya.n will be granted only upon the written request of parents or guardians to the Superintendent of the School. Leaves of absence are detrimental to both the cadet and the discipline of the School. They are, therefore, limited as much as possible and are granted at the discretion of the Super- intendent in case of serious illness or death of near relatives or other emergencies at home or for such specific week-end periods as may be announced by the School, not to exceed more than two for the year. Regular leaves are granted to the Corps of Cadets only for Thanksgiving week-end, the an- nounced Christmas holidays, and for a week-end in April. 71 Parents are advised not to make requests for their sons to be permitted to leave the school for the holidays or at the close of the school year before the dates named in the cata- logue. Special privileges granted individuals work harm both to the individual and to the entire school. Boys must not run store accounts. Parents should pro- vide their sons with a small amount of spending money. fWe have found 51.50 a Week sufficientl. Where this is objection- able, a deposit may be made with the Superintendent. Any student who may be unable to attend his meals, or who is confined to his room on account of sickness, must have the immediate attention of the school physiciang neither will students be excused from any school duty nor from attendance upon Sunday Services except upon the recommendation of the physician. EXPENSES The charge for the entire year for tuition, board, room, fuel, lights, library, laboratory and athletic fees is: 3715.00 and 510.00 for reservation of room. Since there is no charge for instruction in the band and orchestra, unless private les- sons are desired, a fee of 3510.00 is required of each member of the band or orchestra to defray cost of musical library service. Payments are due strictly in advance and are payable at the school office in Bryan, Brazos County, Texas. Enroll- ment of a student in the Academy is made for the entire year, or for that part of the year yet remaining at the date of his entrance. The cadet's actual entrance into the Academy shall be considered sufficient evidence of the acceptance of the school's contract for each and all payments then or there- after due. Some schools require on entrance of a student full charges in advance and others require at least one-half. Upon the entrance of a student into the Academy th'e full obligation for the school year or for that part of the school year yet remaining is assumed by the patron and the school agrees that the regular charges may be paid as follows: On entrance, lst payment ....... -. .... 5225.00 November 11 ,2nd payment --- ---g- 195.00 January 18, 3rd payment ..... .....-... 1 60.00 March 20, 4th payment ...........-.... 145-00 All cadets classified as Seniors in the high school course 72 shall pay 85.00 each as class activity assessment dues. All graduates must pay 510.00 for the diploma of the school. Checks should be made out to Allen Academy and should be sent directly to the school. Cadets should not be made agents for this transaction. i The Academy is not responsible for any property left by departing cadets. The school reserves the right to withhold the transcript of credits or the diploma or to deny any .cadet entrance to the final examinations for any semester or term until all accounts have been satisfactorily settled, No deductions will be made for late entrance unless the date of entrance be more than four weeks from the opening of schoolg in that case charges will be proportioned to the time of at- tendance. No deduction will be made for absence except in case of a protracted sicknessg in such case the school and the student shall share the loss equally. All accounts, when ten days past due, are subject to sight draft without notice. ' Any breakage or damage to property will be paid for by the cadet at actual cost. It is, of course understood by the patron that the son or ward is entered in the school for the school year, and the terms of payment are given solely as an accomodation for the patron. Arrangements having been made for the boy for the entire school year, it would be unfair to the school as well as to the boy to withdraw him from the school, and such with- drawals should not relieve the patron from the obligation to pay for the entire school year. However, when any patron with- draws his son for cause he will pay one-half of the amount due for the remainder of the school year, and when payment is so made the obligation will be so credited. In case of expulsion or withdrawal upon the advice of the Superintendent, no claim will be made by the school for the payment for time beyond that covered by the then current payment. Students are accepted into the school at any time during the school year. Special agreement, however, as to the pay- 73 ments for the remainder of the year must be made with the Superintendent. Where it seems necessary to make monthly or periodic payments, application for such arrangements may be made to the Superintendent. In case special arrangements are made for the payment of the fixed school charges periodically, the de- ferred payments must be covered by promissory notes on which no interest will be charged until after maturity of the payments. In the case of the withdrawal of a.cadet for any cause, it is but fair that due notice be given the school of the intended withdrawal and the reason for such action. All accounts will bear interest at 82: per annum after due date. LAUNDRY Each cadet will be required to send his laundry each week to a school approved Steam laundry. Under such arrangement the charges for such will be greatly reduced. To cover such, a fee of 810.00 will be required of each cadet on entrance and 810.00 to be paid on January 10th to cover the second half of the year. Thus, the charge will be about 50 cents per week. There will be no refund for the unused portion of this charge. DISCOUNTS Special discount is made on the schooling of two or more boys from the same home, for the schooling of sons of Army or Navy officers, ministers and teachers. This should be taken up directly with the Superintendent. Special discount of 102 is permitted on the payment of the full tuition charge of a cadet for the year, if such payment is made before July 1st preceding the opening of the new school year in September. Special discount of 621 is permitted on the payment of the full tuition charges of a cadet for the year if such payment is made before September 1st preceeding the opening of the new school year in September. 74 Nl lllUIlI 1 I' EREOEREIAEOE!E031E021SEERZOE!F03,EDFH!!!,5iE,E9E,EOEh!0EbEOE,5g!

We sometimes hear a speaker refer to that period of years spent in school as a preparation for life. It is not a preparation for life-it is life itself, and that in its fullest, deepest and most significant form. What more important period of a man's sojourn on this planet than is the time spent forming habits thought and action, making life-long friend- ships and crystallizing for better or for worse his permanent character? Youth is a wonderful thing. It is at once plastic and mercurial and affectionate- It is imaginative, imitative and heroic. What superb ma- terial with which to work and what a responsibility! We believe in boys. We believe the only thing out of which you can make a man is a boy. VVe believe we are doing this very thing-making men. There are others who believe likewise. The following extract is from a letter recently re- ceived: . . . . "I am proud indeed to have had the privilege of placing my boy under such splendid discipline for the past four years. I' do not feel that it would be treating Allen Academy fairly not to acknowledge that it has been a wonderful help in building in him manliness and character. My friends tell me repeatedly that they can see a wonderful change in him and to this change is very distinct. I wish that you could accom- modate more boys of anxious mothers. I shall always hold Within my heart a nmost tender regard for the splendid corps of teachers who so tirelessly labored with my boy." In the succeeding pages we endeavor to show you some of the many phases and multiform activities in the life of a boy at Allen. We show him to you at his work, and at his play, in the class-room and study-hall, on the drill ground and athletic field, in the dormitory and on the cam- pus. You see him as he moves in and out among his fellows. The record is necessarily incomplete. Neither word nor picture can tell the story fully. The spirit that motivates and vivifies cannot be caught by the type or line. But in the hope that it will give you at least an idea of what we are trying to do and how we try to do it, we are pre- senting this record. We trust that it will gain your attention and compel your interests. The fact that you have written us is perhaps sufficient warrant for believing that you would like to know more about the school, its standards and its ideals. We want you to become better acquainted with us for we feel that once knowing us, your friendship will be assured. Kindly make us a personal visit and see for yourself. The latch-string is always on the outside. THE SUPERINTENDENT. .1 No man is born into the world whose work Is not, horn with him.

Thorough physical examinations of each cadet are required by the War Department and the School. mx 3 OFFICES OF THE SUPERINTENDENT, THE HEADMASTER, THE SECRETARY, AND THE AUDITOR. OFFICES OF THE PROFESSOR OF MILITARY SCIENCE AND TACTICS The spacious offices of the Superintendent, Auditor, Headmaster, and Commandant are conven iently arranged on the campus. These men and officers are at all times accessible to the cadets. OFFICE OF THE COMMANDANT CHAPEL Each day is begun with a thirty-minute chapel period. Distinguished educators, ministers, law- yers, and other big men of the State conduct these chapel services. The school is non-sectarian but thoroughly religious. "To deprive education of religion is to take' the soul out of the body politic-, and the Spirit that hallcws and preserves human character out of learning." SECTION ROOM Each instructor has his class-room equipped for the instruction of very small classes. Personal individual instruction is given in the effort to develop the abilities and to arouse the desire for and the appreciation of mental achievement. 1 CHEMISTRY LABORATORY Allen Acaclc-my shoulfl be commended fo rits liberal polivy towawls the lal1o1'ato1'i1-5 and library. f-Toxins Depurtmc-ni, of Education.

CLASSES AT WORK No school is better than its teachers: every school is as Hood as its teachers. The Academy employs men of scholarship, character, and personality-and we try always to have each teacher a specialist and each boy under as many specialists as he has classes. rua Q-nam CLASSES AT THE SAND TABLE The Government has been very liberal in equipment issued to the school for the thorough in- struction and training: of cadets in Military Science and Tactics. swims. H. M. C. A. The Y. M. C. A. is an organization which has been very essential in developing in the school a true, high moral tone and in bringrinix together faculty and student body in a spirit of true fellow- ship. Inestimable has been the work of this organization and the good which has come to the school through its student officers. The Academy maintains a very active Y. M. C. A. and many of the really big men of the State have been very active in the encouragement of thi swork by visits, address, and counsel. The Allen Y. M. C. A. maintains a regular secretary and enjoys full National recognition. B995 we . .il M3 THE ALL-EN STAFF The All-En is the school annual. It gets its name from the report taken after taps at night by the officer of the day as he goes from room to room checking the cadets. The rr-port he receives from the c-adets is "All-in." The Annual each year attempts to provide Lhe means of recording the affectionate touch of loyal comrades, that true fellowship and the delightful experiences which give inspiration and enthu- siasm. "Memoirs of the past serve as jeweled footsteps for the future."

Only cadets who can stand the test of service, scholarship, char- acter, and leadership can become members of this Association-a high honor to be S0Ught and cher- ished by our cadets. CADETS RECEIVING DISTINGUISHED STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS The Academy stands for thor- ough scholast.c work. Our aim is to make military training, athlet- ics, and every other school activ- ity contribute to this end. Allen cadets may enter without exami- nation any American college, uni- versity or Government academy which accepts on certificate. Our buys have made good in the Tex- ts schools, Vanderbilt, Ohio, Penn- sylvania, Cornell, Columbia, Chi- arvard West Point An cago, H ' , .' , - naixolis, and many olher univer- sitics.

The high rating, 91.1295 awarded your unit clear- ly indicates marked effort on the part of all concerned to develop and maintain the highest standards of ef- ficiency. ERNEST HINDS, Major General U. S. Army, Commanding Eighth Corps Area. IG From WACO NEWS-TRIBUNE: 'The Little Aggies from Allen Academy shaded the rest of the organizations a bit in their 'pep'. They followed a shiny booted leader who asked nothing from the goose-steppingest Prussian that evereimparted a kick to 'Unter de Linden' . The music that the Little Aggies put out in line with the leader's step was more than music, it was a riot. It was the head of the pro- cession, and by popular vote it would never be re- placed. " nmoqumnzns arc:-rm cours An:-:A FORT SAM HOUSTON, TEXAS RESERVE OFFICERS' TRAINING CORPS OFFICE I wish to express to you our appreciation of the work that you are doing in building up the character of our future citizens. - My inspection of your institution has shown me that you are earnest and sincere in your work and that you place the welfare and learning of your students before everything else. Your academic course is excellent and your institution is not only giving its students a thorough course in academic work, but is teaching them responsibility, the art of handling men, and clean manly ideas. We would like to see your institution have a large enrollment in numbers because schools of your char- acter are of great benefit to the R. 0. T. C. Yours sincerely, A. S. WILLIAMS, Colonel, Infantry QDOLD QNOTE--Colonel Williams was a frequent inspector at the Academy during his tenure of office as R. 0. T. C. Officer'Eigth Corps Area.J WAR DEPARTMENT Office of Assistant Secret-try WASHINGTON, D. C. It has recently been determined that the small bore rifle team of the Allen Academy is the winner, among the junior units of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps, of the National Intercollegiate Rifle Team Match. A trophy emblematic of this splendid accomplish- ment is being forwarded to you by the National Board for the promotion of Rifle Practice. This trophy was won by the Allen Academy in compe- tition with forty-seven other Junior units from vari- ous corps areas, each one of the forty-seven selected by corps area elimination such that they were the best in the country. It is with pleasure that I note your success in this match. 189 Kindly transmit my congratulations to the officers and students who made up this very fine team. Very truly yours, HARRY H. WOODRING, Q The Assistant Secretary of War. I was more than surprised at the performance of your band. It is truly a wonderful organization from all standpoints, but as a military band I believe it has no superior. I have had considerable experience as an Army band- master and have heard most of the big Army and Navy bands of the world. I attended your Sunday afternoon review, with misgivings, and prepared to pick faults, for I am a crank on the way a band should perform at ceremonies. I was very agreeably surprised. I found the band nicely in tune. The alignment in place and on the march was as good as I have seen anywhere. The counter march was extremely well executed. The whole performance bringing out the fact that you.must have truly a wonderful school with excellent discipline and instruction. WILLIAM LAURIER, Warrant Officer, Band-Leader l35rd Inf. Iowa Natl. Guard lJudge East Texas Band Contestj The writer was agreeably surprised to meet such a meritorius organiation from a military school. Hav- ing spent thirty-three years in the Army as a band- master, I have had occasion to become very familiar with military bands from all viewpoints. You have a splendid organization--one of the best I ever listened to aside from the regular Army units. The band plays with great precision, has fine military bearing, shows careful, conscientious training in both appearance and musical expression. P The young ambitious musicians of your state have a splendid opportunity to study military and band music in your school. I predict for you great success. MAJOR GEO. LANDERS, Clarinda, Iowa. CJudge East Texas Band Contesti THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS, AUSTIN OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT .....It seems to me that you have an admirable op- portunity to expand amid fine surroundings the excel- lent work that Allen Academy has been doing for so many years. There seems to be a very useful place for just such a school. The Late H. Y. BENEDICT, President. 170 AGRICULTURAL AND MECHANICAL COLLEGE OF TEXB COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT During the past fifteen years, I have had intimate knowledge of the work being done by Allen Academy, and have had the pleasure and good fortune of knowing the two men responsible for the establishment and growth of this great institution. As a Preparatory School for boys, I know of no institution in the State which turns out a finer product. Moreover, the parents who send their sons to this institution may rest in the assur- ance that not only will they be under the guidance of capable and competent instructors at all times, but that they will be under the influence of Christian gentlemen of the highest character. It is with great pride and satisfaction that I attest to the efficiency of the program of work, the splendid conduct of the students of the institution and of the wholesome influence under which Allen Acad- emy students are kept at all times. There is, in my judgement, no better preparatory school in the South than Allen Academy. T. 0. WALTON, President. AGRICULTURAL AND MECHANICAL COLLEGE OF TEXAS COLLEGE STATION.

It does not usually happen that a student who has had one year of college work in a Junior College can enter one of our engineering courses and make "B" in such difficult subjects as Calculus and surveying.

Your band made a score of 88, the highest made by any of the contestants. As I have been Divisional Band Instructor at Camp Bowie for the 36th Division, and later at Camp Travis, I know whereof I speak, if I consider the Allen Band equal to most regu- 171 in all the country. lar Army units. It was a real pleasure to see and hear your splendid boys. Sincerely, CARL VENTH, Dean of Fine Arts, Formerly Texas Woman's College. ' mms cx-uus-ruw umvsnsxrv rom: wom-H, 'rams nnwiuw Masnxnm wArrs President It gives me great pleasure to express my apprecia- tion of Allen Academy. I am sure it stands first among the great training sohools.of the South and Southwest. I have never seen a group of youngsters under better discipline and control and yet there seems to be no efforton the part of the authorities to call out the very best within the young men. I could think of no more ideal place for a boy to do his preparatory work than in the midst of an atmosphere that is literally vibrating with the very finest spiritual and academic ideas. E. M. WAITS, President Emeritus, Texas Christian University. AGRICULTURAL mn MECHANICAL coiuscs or 'rsxAs common STATION, TEXAS or-'mon or 'ram rnmsmx-:NT I am glad to bear testimony of the excellent work of Allen Academy. I believe thoroughly in the work of this Institution. The high standards of work and the fine ideals which are maintained at Allen Academy justify the confidence that the public has manifested in the principals of this institution and their associates. Many of our Agricultural and Mechanical College stu- dents have prepared for college in the Academy, and I can personally vouch for the good product that they have sent to this institution. U W. B. BIZZELL, Formerly President Oklahoma University, Formerly President Texas A. an M. College. TEXAS WOMAN'S COLLEGE FORT WORTH, TEXAS OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT The best commentary on any institution is its pro- duct. I meet up with a number of the Allen Academy boys and have been impressed with their manliness and seri- ousness of purpose. I was surprised, however, when I looked into the faces of the entire group and find that this seemed to be a characteristic of the entire body. 172 Your plant is well located and organized, and with the high ideals that are maintained, I am not surprised at the hearty response in money and patronage that is yours. I congratulate you upon the work you are doing. H. E. STOUT, Formerly President Texas Woman's College. .. .. .And my very sincere congratulations on at- taining the Honor List. It pleases me, too, very much, for you have a fine school and a very fine spirit. Sincerely, MAJOR E. M. FALES, Member Honor Rating Board, Representing War Dept. It was indeed a great pleasure for me to be with you on last Sun- day. I do not know when I have ever stood before a finer looking group of students than those from your great school. DR. CULLOM H. BOOTH, Austin Avenue Methodist Church, Waco, Texas. I desire to say quite seriously that I regard your Academy as one of the best preparatory schools in the State. I know that you aim at the utmost thoroughness, and that at the same time you lose no opportunity to influence the boys under your charge for the good. The Late DAVID F. HOUSTON, Ex-U. S. Secretary of Treasury, Washington, D. C. Formerly President University of Texas, Austin, Texas. -I was deeply impressed by the personnel of your students, their manly bearing and behavior, their attention to serious thinking and their response to high ideals- Your school through many years has borne the fine reputation of building character, moral and mental, in your students and the standard is still stoutly maintained. BISHOP JOHN M. MOORE, First Methodist Church, South. You have the best school of my knowledge for the character of edu- cation you propose to give. BISHOP SAM R. HAY, First Methodist Church, South. You may quote me at any time and anywhere as endorsing your school and its splendid work. J. SAM BARUUS, Formerly President, Southwestern University. Judged by the output of its work, I regard Allen Academy as one of the best preparatory schools in the Southwest. The Late S. P. BROOKS, President, Baylor University, Waco, Texas. 173 I desire to express my high appreciation of your school, and my re- grets that circumstances are such that I cannot see my way clear to send Tom back next year, but it is a long way from Washington to Texas, and I wish to have him in our immediate neighborhood. His treatment at your institution has, in every way, been highly satisfactory, and it will give me pleasure to recommend Allen Academy to all inquiring friends. Yours sincerely, The Late T. W. GREGORY, Former Attorney General of the United States. CMr. Gregory's son was with us two yearsj I desire to express to you my appreciation of the excellent appear- ance, performance and general proficiency displayed by the students of your institution. MAJOR GENERAL JOHN F- PRESTON. . The conduct, training and military bearing of the students of Allen Academy have been all that could be desired and reflects the thorough course of instruction they have had during the year. BRIGADIER GENERAL R. McCLEAVE. . . . I was especially impressed by the personnel of your student body, their exceeding loyalty to and appreciation of the school, and the atmosphere of the entire proceedings. I have been profoundly impressed with Allen Academy, its faculty, its student body, its spirit and high standards. Every man connected with it seems to be anxious to do his best, everything I heard about it was good, its impression upon former students seems so strong as to have them send their sons back to follow in their father's footsteps. I know of no more important institution in the land than one that takes our boys of academy age and so trains them mentally, morally and physically. , The Late O. S. LATTIMORE, Judge Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, Austin, Texas. I have made an investigation of your school and had we not decided to take the boys with us to Washington I should not hesitate to place them with you. EARLE B. MAYFIELD, Former United States Senator. I desire to take this opportunity to congratulate you on the contin- ued success of the Academy and to extend to you my heartiest good wishes in the work you are doing. The Late MORRIS SHEPPARD, Former United States Senator. I have had a very high regard for your splendid Academy and for the splendid work that you have accomplished in the training and education of your men. I MARTIN DIES, H Member of Congress. 174 Of all the schools I know, I give Allen Academy the preference. In its discipline, in its careful instruction, in its conscientious work, and in its high moral tone, it is all that could be desired. The Late DR. W. F. PACKARD, Pastor First M. E. Church, South, El Paos, Texas. While President of Southwestern University, I frequently had students from Allen Academy in my classes, and I always found them well trained and of the highest moral character. I have always spoken of this school as an almost ideal place for boys to receive their training for college. The Late DR. R. S. HYER, Formerly President Southern Methodist Univeristy, Dallas, Texas. A FEW EXPRESSIONS TAKEN FROM RECENT LETTERS TO THE SCHOOL . . . It has been my privilege to visit Allen Academy, and I am glad to say that everything I have observed regarding Allen Academy, the personnel of its teaching force and the conduct of its student body is of the highest type. The Late J. R. ROACH, Paris, Texas. QMr. Roach's son entered the U- S. Naval Academy from Allen., . . . Frankly, I believe that during the past year Robert actually got more good from his school work than during any of the three previous years. R. S. ABBOTT, Philadelphia, Pa. -we are more than pleased with son's year under your direction. He certainly shows that he received the very best of training and he did not form a single bad habit. You have made our good boy much better. MRS. LILLIAN MARTIN, Houston, Texas. It is cheering to note the confident stride of your school on the edu- cational highway, at a time when the financial world's lack of confidence has so sorely crippled credit, with its consequent depreciation of commod- ity and all other values, excepting gold and "those of the spirit," to an extent, actually commensurate with the world's present acute business contraction, because, as the greater percentage of business has been done on credit values and not with actual money, the answer to restricted credit values was restricted business activity, or else the world is laboring under borning pains to bring forth a new era. The substantiative to the foregoing formidable preamble is, our full appreciation and pleasure in acknowledgment of your school's merits, more power to you. H. G. CRAIG, Compania Constructora Latino Americana, S. A., Tampico, Mexico. - . . I am very happy to know that Revis is making such good prog- ress and I certainly do appreciate your interest in his welfare. He seems to be contented and happy under his presentsurroundings and it is my 175 hope that he will continue to make such progress until he finishes his work at Allen. I think you have instilled in Phillip a few more qualities which are bound to aid him in the success of life. I feel that the investment I made in the one year at your institution is the best of my life. JOHN J. ROBIRA, Lake Charles, La. District Attorney, 14th Judicial District of Louisiana. It is impossible for me to express the joy I have experienced upon reading the excellent comments you make about my boy, especially as coming from such authorized source as yourself. The news of his having obtained the gold medal in Mathematics was also a most pleasant surprise that has made us very happy. You can count on my boy's return to the dear old Allen Academy and I would gladly send the other two boys also if you could accept them as young as they are. SANTIAGO GERNA, Monterrey, N. L., Mexico. fYears ago Mr. Cerna was a distinguished student at Allen. The son, like his father, has won high honors.J When I graduated from Allen some years ago as a member of the class of 1923, I then was unable to appreciate the fullness our saying "Once an Allen boy, always an Allen boy" should mean to me. But now I know what it means to look on my training at Allen with joy and grat- itude in my heart. The greatest hope that I could ever entertain for the future success of Allen would be to wish that the school could mean as much and render the service and to make the impression on the lives of future students as it did to me. EDWARD CLARK, Formerly Secretary of State, Austin, Texas- -I am taking this opportunity to congratulate you on the success of Allen Academy and to extend to you my heartiest good wishes for the noble work you are doing of character building. It will always be a pleas- ure for me to recommend the Academy for its careful instruction, its con- scientious work, its discipline, and its high moral tone. It is all that I could desire for my son. ' W. G. RUBLE, Lott, Texas. Aprovecho la oportunidad para demonstrar a Ud. nuevamente mis agradecimientor por la atencion que so sirvieron prestar ami ohijo durante su estrancia es esa Academia, y muy particularmente por los reconocidos progresos que hizo en su educasion en todos entidos. ISUARO MARTINEZ, Torreon, Coah., Mexico. Undoubtedly son's success in your institution is owed to the great help of his teachers and their very fine system of education. I am glad to congratulate you on the success of my son. ALEJANDRO PANGTAY, Tampico, Tamps, Mexico. 176 Am very proud of my son being in your school as the high type of instructors and boys that I met makes me feel as though it is one of the finest in the country. 0. F. TORBRON, Houston, Texas- . . . I have received very encouraging reports from my sister, Mrs. J. H. Shelton, and I am rather pleased and contented that my boy is in your care. CAPTAIN GEORGE A ABBOTT, New York, N. Y. May I thank you now for what your school has done for our son. He has always been a very fiine boy but a dreamer. Your training has made him alert and changed him into a fine young man. MRS. FLORENCE COUSINS, Spring Hill, Ala. . . . I want to express my appreciation to you and other members of your fine faculty for the interest you have taken in the boy's progress and the progress he has made with your help. You have done a fine job and your efforts are greatly appreciated. A. A. MEREDITH, Amarillo, Texas. Desco hacer saber a Uds- mi satisfaccion completa por lo oficaz en- senanza que recibio mi hijo baso la direccion de Uds., asii como por las atensiones que so sirvieron dispensarle. Estoy plenamente satisfecho, de la eficacion do la ensenanz ade Uds., con todo, gusto recommandare su Acadameiia a todos de mis amigos que queran enviar a sus hijos a estu- diar a-ese pais. MANUAL VALENCIA, Torreon, Coah., Mexico. . . . Permit me to congratulate you on what appears to have been the first really successful effort toward getting my son down to hard study. ' W. A. HILLIS, Tampico, Tamps, Mexico. The boy reflects to a marked degree the thoroughness of the scho- lastic and physical training at Allen. I am a "booster" for Allen, and shall not hesitate to recommend it, as I have done to any of my friends having boys to send to school. H. D. WILDE, Tampico, Mexico. . . . I am proud indeed to have had the privilege of placing my son under such splendid discipline for four years. To me the good change in him is very distinct and I wish you could accommodate more boys of anx- ious mothers. I feel very happy to recommend the school to others, believ- ing it to be the best school of its kind in Texas. I shall always hold within my heart the most tender regard for the splendid corps of teach- ers who so tirelessly labored with my boy. I heartily endorse the school and shall do all I can to promote its interests. MRS. H. MAINER, Lovelady, Texas. You may never realize how much this school year has meant to our boy and may I express our sincere appreciation for all you have done for 177 him. I have been quite thrilled that Ross has been able to enjoy the ad- vantages of a school like Allen Academy. May it grow and prosper for the good of many boys in the years to come. MRS. G. ANDREWS, Hartford, Conn. San1's reports have been highly gratifying. We feel that, with the high rating of the Academy, we have every right to be proud that Sam is one of the honor students. N MRS. SAM JEAGGLI, Moulton, Texas. . . . We hope you will be able to send a team from your school again. The writer was with you men' during practically all of their visits here, and you can do us a real favor by referring us to boys of Allen Acad- emy's standards, who are interetsed in attending college, particularly those interested in attending this university. P. RUSSELL BAKER, The Delta Chi Fraternity, University of Chicago. fHosts to the Allen Teaml You taught my boys how to study and gave them an interest in things worth-while. Their attitude toward life has so completely changed and their purposes have become so definite and well-defined that my ap- preciation blends into wonder at how you did it. I have talked with sev- eral Allen boys and it is the same with all of them. The Late C. W. WEBB fAttorneyJ, Elign, Texas. I selected your school for the third time. I wanted the very best training possible for my boy, and as I had been so well pleased with what you had done for the other two, it was natural that I should again choose Allen Academy. J .H. had passed a very successful year at West Point, and, Without any intention of flattery, he states in his letters to me that he gives Allen Academy's thorough training credit for his success. I would like to see Allen Academy expand so as to accomodate a thou- sand boys. Then more mothers could rest easy with the thought, "My boy is safe". MRS. J. H. CLAYBROOK, Perry, Texas. I'l1 tell you now that you modeled more good into my character and life than has even my father- AN. OLD STUDENT. It certainly did look good to me to see such a fine, manly looking lo! of boys as you have in your school, and to know that they are under the influence of such Christian gentlemen as the Allens. If all boys could get such training, it seems that there would be quite an improvement over present conditions. We are proud to know that our boy had two years' training in your fine school, and are sure he will always remember Allen Academy with the kindest thoughts. W. M. ASHFORD, Southern Pine Lumber Co., Diboll, Texas. 178 -As I have written I am perfectly satisfied with the progress that the boys are making and the grades they are getting in their studies. I trust that it will be possible to place them with you another year. ING. ERNESTO J. AGUILAR, Mexico, D. F. During the tournament, Allen Academy stepped into State and Na- tional spotlight, and in a most creditable manner. . It goes without saying that your boys behave themselves like gen- tlemen. So long as you send young men of this caliber out from Bryan to represent the Academy you need have no fear of the Academy's repu- tation with the people of Texas. WALTER R. HUMPHREY, ' Editor Temple Telegram, Temple, Texas. Thank you for what you have done for our boys this past year. MRS. A. B. BAUER, Paris, Texas . . . We are quite sure that for this work there was just as much external incentives of the school and of the teachers as the inner incen- tive of achievement. With deep appreciation of your personal interests in Raymond's ac- tivities and with best wishes for the excellent work you are doing in your academy. DR. V. GREGORY ROSEMONT, Omaha, Nebraska lUniversity Omahal We are so proud of our son, and the wonders you have done for him., that I feel that it is worth ten times more than I am paying. MRS. J. C. LONG, Dallas, Texas. I am delighted with Lester's progress in Allen Academy. We see a wonderful improvement in the boy. I am sorry he has not had your school discipline for the last ye-ar or so. MRS. L. A- PE'EL, Montgomery, Texas. -I will take this opportunity of thanking you for what you have done for my boy. Three years ago I sent him, a trembling little youth, to you at the age of fifteen, and today as he returns to me a satlwart young man with a well-rounded disposition as well as a broader mind, I feel that I will always be indebted to Old Allen. As I sat at the Com- mencement exercises and heard such a wonderful sermon, I felt so thank- ful to have had Edwin under such influence for three years. MRS. CHRIS HUBER, Dallas, Texas. . . . Mrs. Poole and I have always been enthusiastic boosters of Al- len Academy because we have felt the environment has been the best for a. youngster going through the adolescent stage. In every boy's life there is a period which may be termed as "bewildered" in which the boy can not seem to grasp a hold of himself very firmly- If character has been built and the environment is of the best, the boy will, if he has the riht stuff in him, pull through this period and make an outstanding success in life. Q My reaction to your accomplishments, I think, are expressed above. In short, I think you have done a good job with our son. G. A. POOL, Odessa, Texas. 179 I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate the things you have done for me. I would not take a fortune for the year I spent at Allen. I'll surely see that my two smaller brothers will come and spend at least one year with you if at all possible. JOHN DUBBS HALTOM, The United States Military Academy, West Point, N. Y. As your work for the year draws to a close I want to express to you again my sincere thanks for the fine standards of performacne you have required my son to maintain throughout the year. I feel confident that if Jack is permitted to continue his work at West Point he not only will outshine his old man but will reflect great credit on the preparatory work that you have given him at Allen Academy. COLONEL WILLIAM C. McFADDEN, 69th CA, San Diego, Cal. . . . If conditions are favorable next year my sons will again be students at the Academy, as I and they are very well satisfied with the institution. DR- JULIAN SANCHEZ, Camaguey, Cuba. I am glad to add once more that the Allen Academy is one of the centers where young fellows find their best foundation in a very sincere manner and that they themselves are convinced of the fact. All of this making for their own success in life. I shall be one of your stimulating supporters abroad, saying that your Academy should be always adopted by all of those wishing the true prosperity of their children. TULIO HERNANDEZ, Modellin, Colombia, S. A. Austin has the privilege of entertaining more athletic teams than any other city in the State. As we have quite a number of visiting teams of every branch of sport we feel that we should pay your baseball team a just tribute. They were, in every respect, one of the quietest, nicest, most friendly group of boys that it has ever been our privilege to come in contact with- You should feel proud of having such a group of gen- tlemen representing your school away from home. It is the best possible advertisement of your school and We believe you will profit by it. H. B. STARKEY, Manager, i Texan Hotel, Austin, Texas. Please be assured that we enjoyed having your boys and coaches here and they distinguished themselves as true sportsmen and a great football team. I hope that it will be possible to have the Allen team here again, as all who witnessed the game would like to see them play again. -Remember me with kindest regards to all the nice boys whom I met here. A JOHN D. ODOM, Exalted Ruler Elks Club, Columbus, Ga. 180 I consider it my duty to write you and express appreciation for all you have done for my son, Roberto. It is very gratifying to me to see how well he had done in all of his sfudies, especially in his English after having been only five months in your splendid academy. I must congratu- late you for your effficient method of teaching and training. GMO. ZAMBRANO, Monterrey, Mexico. After a rather lazy High school course he had to learn to really study at Allen and he seems to have devoted himself to it for the first time in his life. You seem to have aroused in him strong determination ,a keen sense of necessity for hard study and a spirit that we feel is growing finer and finer there, due to his instructors and advisors. Your school is just the place for him and for any boy who means to buckle down, obey regulations and apply himself for his Whole future life. JOHN J. BONIFACE, Colonel U- S. Cavalry Retired, El Paso, Texas. . . . As you know, our son is in Montell with Mr. Hall's uncle, Arnold Beercroft. We received a letter from him the other day saying that we might rest assured that we did not make a mistake in sending Robert to Allen Academy. That he was much improved and seemed very fond of his school and contented. In any case you are to count on his return. MRS. J. C. HALL, Elia, Camaguey, Cuba. Mrs. 'I'uttle and I wish to again express to you our deep appreciation for what you have accomplished wth our son. We truly believe that his four years at Allen Academy will serve for the foundation of his en- tire life- L. K. TUTTLE, Wharton, Texas. I take this occasion at the clos eof the school year to tell you how much I think Tom has derived from his two years at Allen Academy. The personal attention he has had in the small classes from well quali- fied instructors has improved his scholarship, and most important, has revived his interest in learning. He actually likes to go to school. The military instruction and drill has improved his posture. Mrs. Darrow 'and I are both pleased with the school and plan to enter Tom there again next fall. W. H. DARROW, College Station, Texas. . . . It should be useless for me at attempt to express my grati- tude and high opinion over your accomplishments with him during this school year. I have watched him very closely for undesirable character- istics and traits, all doing his younger years and believe that I have raised a pretty good boy but have never been able to inspire his scho- lastically such as you and other members of the faculty apparently have done. VICTOR V. PHILLIPS, Concordia, Kansas. We appreciate very much the interest you have taken in the boy. He has a very high regard for your school and the entire faculty- We feel that this has been a splendid year of training for him. D. T. GILLIAM, Eastland, Texas. 181 I can never tell you how happy I am about my son being in your school. MRS. VERA LABAR, Wichita Falls, Texas. I think Allen Academy is blessed with fine teachers, and we appre- ciate their efforts and patience. MRS. R. H. S. HENDERSON, Dallas, Texas We thought you would like to know that we enjoyed having the band boys with us very much. They were, at all times, perfect gentlemen. They are a splendid bunch of boys and indeed a credit to the fine school which they represent. We look forward to the pleasure of having them with us again next year. JOHN POWELL, Manager, Hotel Jean LaFitte Galveston, Texas. In my last letter written to you in April I expressed by thanks and that of the faculty of this school for the many kindnesses shown our students during their stay with you. The great fund of konwledge gained by ours and the many aids given them in preparing their itinerary for their trip through your country will win my grateful thanks. I hope, my dear professor, that your Director will accompany you on your trip to Colombia during the coming month of vacation because the enthusiasm of our students and professors is keen and the desire to meet you personally obliges me to ask that you assure me of your coming and of the dates of your coming in your next letter. Please advise me as to the number of students making the trip, your itinerary and your arrival at Puerto, Colombia that a delegation of our students may meet you there and escort you to Boogta- I am prepared to do all in my power to make your voyage pleasant and without any un- pleasantness. Lt. Angel and the Colombia boys send to your Director, to you and al, your students their greetinugs and best wishes. SANTOS MA PINZON, N. Director Bogota, Colombia.

I have your letter of the first and assure you that I shall be glad to see the cadets of the Ramirez Military Academy, who expect to visit Washington in the next few days- It will also give me particular pleasure to see your son, who will ac- company them. TOM CONNALLY, United States Senate We regret that we were unable to spare more time than they did in seeing our plant as their stay in Chicago was very limited. We thank you for your interest in Swift Sz Company that caused you to send these South American cadets to visit us. R. M. WHITSON, Swift Sz Company Chicago, Illinois March 10, 1939 The enclosed picture of Vice-President Garner and the Colombian Ca' dets was taken in his office yesterday morning, and is clipped from the Washington Herald this morning. I personally accompanied the Cadets and your son to call upon Sec- retary Hull, General Malin Craig, Chief of Staff, and Vice-President Gar- ner, and also to the Senate and House, and presented them to Senator Sheppard. I enjoyed very much seeing these young men, and commend and con- gratulate you upon the plan which you are working out, which is in fur- therance of President Rooseve1t's good neighbor policy. LUTHER A. JOHNSON, Congress of the United States, Washington, D. C. We can never thank you for all the kind favors we received from you and from the other members of the Academy.

DON A. ANJEL TAMAYO, Lieut., Colombia Army Attached to Ramirez Military Academy, Bogota, Cloombia. Mr. Chesney and I are very happy over the work our son has done in your school. We hope we will have the opportunity of having another son in your school- MR. AND MRS. A. J. CHESNEY, Crawley, La. . . . I assure you that in my heart there is a great admiration for Allen's "Foster Fathers," who have done a much better job than his real Dad could accomplish. A. M. GREEN, Houston, Texas. . . . I feel gratified for the real progress in my boys education and consider your organization for its system and methods as the most practical and efficient in its category. D. ECHAVARRIA, Nuevo Laredo, Tamps, Mexico. . . - We hasten to enclose the application blank for next years en- rollment.

We wish to join that unseen host-which undoubtedly exists of grateful parents who appreciate most deeply the unselfish efforts which you and your splendid corps of instructors have put forth during the past years in building character into our American Youth. As an example of your fine service you have taken our boy, George Belcher, and in a few short months you have instilled into him an Ideal. Where before his stay at Allen he accepted little responsibility he now willingly accepts it. He has begun to think of the other fellow instead of himself. He sees that his real mission in life is one of Service to his fellowmen- The kind of service that you at Allen, have rendered for so many years. M. M.

TRY-To bring the boy in close contact with personalities which in- spire him and to teach him to appreciate the true and the beautiful in the life that is about him- This is our program. It is a tremendous task and not to be under- taken lightly. Should you place your boy in our care we want your com- plete co-operation. We shall expect you to support us and back us up to the limit. It will take both of us t oaccomplish the end in view and we confidentially believe that you will give us this support in fullest measure. 185 0 L... ..Lr,-,-, M - TO DEAR OLD ALLEN LET US SING 1 To dear old Allen let us sing A lusty song of love and cheerg To dear old Allen let us bring A husky shout for Alma Mater dear. 2 For dear old Allen let us blend Our loyal voices loud and clearg To dear old Allen let us lend A hand of fellowship and cheer. 3.
