Stuart now comes out to see us every day. The present program offers thirty-two subjects in most of which we have duplicate classes. Besides other daily classes, the schools, program schedules 58 classes in Iinglishg 26 in History, 55 in mathematics, 32 in drawing, and -IU in foreign languages, "The groves were Tech's first lunch roomf' Then the Guard House by the gate-way claimed the honor. As the school increased its enrollment, it out- grew its "lunchery." Ilihen the Bar- racks became another school house, its first floor made us a fine lunch room. XVe have, however, outgrown these quar- ters. liven with our "half-dayu and with numerous requests to ulunch at homef, the capacity of the lunch room is "over- workedf, The first term, we occupied AQZOD, 134215, Cf22J, 23, 2-I, 25, 26, and part of the second floor of the Shops and the Electrical Shops. The second term creat- ed 27. The third term demanded 3-I, 35, 36, and 37, and a railing in the hall "for an oflicefl Then the gym lost a section from its west side to make 30, 31, 32, and 33. The girls' cloak room became the oflice after the new stair- ways were built to the north, and the stairs in the tower went on the pension list and were assigned to "fire-escape dutyf, The east residence then housed the Latin and Typewriting, Botany, and Agriculture. The shops filled the second Hoors of their respective buildings, and are now also occupying the first floors. The one building that now looks most like a "real-for-sure school house" is the old Government Barn. As the Blain Building is over a square from the Bar- racks we need seven minutes between classes. Sprinting, though not recorded on our study slips, is a regular part of our daily program. Now Technical High School occupies, in six different buildings, forty-four rooms, none of which was origi- nally intended for school purposes. Probably no high school in the United States has, during its first four years, had so many strange pioneering exper- iences as have fallen ours. These have not been altogether adverse. In fact, even the legal suspense may prove our greatest blessing in disguise. These facts sum up the whole situation: we are ideally located: we are happy, enthusi- asticg and above all, like our Tech Acorn, we are still growing.

12 THE ARSEN VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS In addition to the work of the regular high school and its departments of indus- trial training, there are at present, six distinct schools of vocational training in connection with Technical High School. Klost of these departments are aided financially by the state as vocational schools that have qualified and fulfilled the requirements of the state law. It is not the purpose of these schools to make journeymen of their students but rather, to permit them, if possible, togfind that line of trade work in which they are most interested and to teach them the funda- mentals of that trade. 'With these aims in view, six vocational school are now offering work to boys. SCHOOL Ol' AGRICULTURE The splendid natural advantages for work in agriculture, offered by our school grounds, has led to the organization of a school of Vocational Agriculture. The aim of the course is first, to give boys interested in agriculture a general survey of agricultural pursuits, and second, to give them a chance during the last two or three years of the course, to specialize along their chosen line. The first class was organized in February, 1915. The boys of this class started a school market which proved to be very successful and was an effective means of disposing of their products. The largest amount made by any one boy was 319600. Experience shows that as soon as a boy becomes interested in this line of work he oftens provides himself with a small farm and goes to work on it. Four boys of last year's class are now working on farms. SCHOOL OF BUILDING TRADES The School of Building Trades was organized in order to offer to those boys who contemplate choosing one of the building trades as a vocation, some defi- nite, practical, and scientific training along the line they wish to follow. It is the plan of the course to give two years of general training dealing with as many of the trades as possible, and to give two years of specific training along the trade chosen. In the first two years the boys will receive a large amount of practical exper- ience in carpentry, cement, and concrete A L CANNON work, painting decorating, and sheet- metal work. Small projects will be given in electric wiring, plumbing, heating, masonry and stone cutting. In correla- tion to the Work of the shop, English, History, Civics, lNIathematics, Architec- tural Drawing, and Interior Decorating will be given. A boy having completed this course will be able to choose more wisely a trade he wishes to follow. The School of Building Trades was organized last October and since that time almost all of the shop work has been devoted to carpentry. Twenty-nine pro- jects have been completed, some of which areg a large partition across the shop building, a storm entrance to the auto- construction shop and a number of benches, boxes, stools, and other school equipment. SCHOOL FOR ELECTRICAL XVORKERS Vocational Electricity had its begin- ning in a course called Shop Science, started primarily at the beginning of this school to utilize the Electrical Building as left by the Winona Trade Schools. The demand for Shop Science necessi- tated the beginning of a broader and more comprehensive course in electricity, re- sulting two years ago in our present School for Electrical VVorkers. The School for Electrical VVorkers is at this time one of the state-aided voca- tional schools, having enrolled seventy boys who are graded into four groups. The course of study is separated into four distinct lines of work all of which bear rather directly toward training along electrical lines. The course is built some- what upon Electrical Theory as a basis, due to its fundamental importance, and the Work of the shop, drawing room, mathematics and English, bears its proper relation to training in the Electrical Trades. Two years are required to com- plete the course. Eleven boys will com- plete the course this term. To the growth of Tech, the work of the boys of the Electrical Shop has been of much importance. Wlhenever more light has been needed in a dark room, or a newibell was to be installed, it has been the business of these boys to look after it. The most notable examples of this
