Developing Skills . . . Robert E. Kinzie Agriculture James E. Peters Paul 0. Schwartz ndustrial Arts In the upward climb, INDUS¬ TRIAL ARTS classes are equally important to the boys who are not interested in agriculture. In SHOP students learn how to cautiously but confidently use a myriad assortment of machine tools. In shop 1 and 2, participants spend six weeks in some of the following areas: elementary drawing, elec¬ tricity, cabinet making, lathe work, jigsaw work, tin can projects, ce¬ ramics, and printing. They are a prerequisite to shops 3 and 4. In shops 3 and 4, students may choose any one of these areas and stay in it for a longer period. This gives the time for making larger and more worth-while projects, such as coffee tables or end tables. In the hobby shop students make hand projects such as leather pocket- books and wallets. To those lacking a half-credit, it is a boon, because either half year may be taken without prerequisites. In MECHANICAL DRAWING, students learn the fundamentals of drafting in preparation for jobs in the fields of engineering, construc¬ tion, manufacture, and design, or simply for use in woodworking, or other hobbies. All in all, the major aim o± shop is to teach students to use their hands as well as their minds, for their greater enjoyment and em¬ ployment.
