If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings-nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much, If you can till the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, And-which is more-you'll be a Man, my son! -Rudyard Kipling 9 CCL. JAMES CALDWELL WICKER, D.D PRESIDENT FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT OMB YEARS AGO a poet said, "-And there are those who stumbled up to manhood, where they saw too late the road they should have taken long ago." This letter is written to those boys and to parents of boys who Want no "stumbling up to manhoodf' It is written to those who believe that right training is vital to successful living. It is written to the Toms and Jacks, the Billys and Jims, and to their mothers and dads who recognize the priceless value of soundest preparation for the challenge of life. This school is a non-profit institution, and as such, has only one reason for existence. That one reason is to answer the need for the right kind of training, we call "the right kind of training" CHRISTIAN EDUCATION. One may well ask, "What is Christian Education, not to a generation, or a country, or a group, but to me? What does Christian Education at Fork Union Military Academy mean to the individual, to the one boy?" It means a coordinated, twenty-four-hour-a-day program to help the individual boy grow physically, mentally, and spiritually into useful, happy citizenship, according to the applied concepts of practical Christianity. It should be stated here that, While the Academy is owned by the Baptists of Virginia, substantial representations of many religious de- nominations are present in the Cadet Corps. Let us look further into our specific definition of Christian Edu- cation. By helping physical growth we mean the furnishing of comfortable, well-lighted, warm, fireproof living quarters, a scientifically planned and abundant diet, a regulated daily schedule, daily body-building exercise, voluntary participation in all types of competitive sports, with superb equipment, facilities and direction for those sports. By helping mental growth we mean an academic program based on numerically small classes, a 'faculty carefully selected for professional ability, character, personality and purpose, weekly checks on individual scholastic standings, and a semi-tutorial system that provides additional individual instruction to those cadets whose progress may be slower in some classes. E51 - - - f 1 ff ew'-f.f1sw. Q. , THE CIRCLE By aid to spiritual growth, we mean the lessons put before each cadet in the daily Chapel meetings, such lessons not being so much con- cerned with theological theories as with the practical applications of Christianity to one,s daily life, the experience of group participation and individual responsibility toward a common endeavor found within the working framework of the military department, and the sincere counsel- ing and friendship of those earnest gentlemen who comprise our faculty. As you continue through this book, you will see pictures of the facilities I have spoken of, and you will find some description of the above-mentioned activities. However, printed words at best cannot portray a true picture. We are always happy to have our friends visit Fork Union, for if one is to more fully appreciate and understand, one must see and feel the spirit that makes our school what it is today. J. CALDWELL NVICKER I 6 I A FRIENDSHIP BEGINS I7 I WILLIAM E. HATCHER, LL. D. Founder of Fork Union Military Academy A Lover of Boys And A Great Leader of Men E81 FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY A MOTHER SEARCHES FOR A SCHOOL This letter came to a beadmaster from the mother of u boy of prep-school age. "I have studied your catalogue very carefully and I am impressed," she wrote. "Your school has handsome buildings, a tremendous gymnasium, and a very fine location. "Your course of study is complete and your teaching staff very large. Your students seem to be from excellent homes, your graduates have been singularly successful. And the expenses are satisfactory-But still I ask: What can your school do for my child? "Pm sure you'll give him a good academic education. I know you'll help him develop physically. I think you'll add to his social poise. "All this is fine. I think it's great that you'll help him become a good swimmer, a sharp student, a poised conversationalist. But-this is not enough . . . not nearly enough. "I want to know what you'll do to his character. I want to know how you'll help him lit into the complex world of today. "It is not enough that he be mentally and physically above average. It is not good enough that he will be able to make a good living. It is not enough, even, that he will be satisfied with himself and with his life. I want for him a broader outlook than that. I want him to feel his responsibility to his fellows and I want him to do something about it. "Yes, I want him to have the old-fashioned virtues-those basic concepts that have so many newfangled names, but remain always the same, under- standing, consideration for others, faith . . . "I don't care whether you teach him these lessons from the New Testament, from the latest books-or both. I don't care whether you can name them by names of one syllable or three. But I want to be sure you have them in your impressive curriculum. "Pvc spent twelve years trying to plant the seeds that will make this boy a useful and happy human being. Now Pm asking you to help me with the job. It's a difficult job and a dangerous one. Can you help me? "Pm inclined to believe you can." This mother is exactly right. She is seeking the right thing and Fork Union stands for just what this mother desires for her boy. To meet the needs of such a boy as set forth in the above letter is the aim and ambition of Fork Union Military Academy. l9l 4 THE ACADEMY FROM THE AIR SCHOOL PLANT BUILDINGS AND EQUIPNIENT HE ACADEMY BUILDINGS are of brick, cement, and fire- resistant construction. The type of architecture is English battle- ment Gothic modified to suit present-day collegiate buildings. All buildings are supplied with hot water and heated with steam from a central heating plant. SNEAD HALL This building is a three-story structure, named in honor of Capt. Charles G. Snead, the first Vice-President of our Board of Trustees. It was erected in 1923 and is of brick and cement, a fire-resistant structure. There are three units-each having its own showers and toilets. Each room has hot and cold running water. Snead Hall also has quarters for instructors in each unit. All rooms are outside rooms thereby insuring proper lighting and ventilation. MEMORIAL I"IALL This building was erected in 1941 and is the last word in modern dormitory construction. It is absolutely fireproof with hot and cold running water in every room, and showers and toilets on each floor. Instructors are quartered on each floor in this dormitory.

Occupying as it does a commanding position on the campus, its dignity of structure and quiet simplicity of design is a fitting monument to the beloved founder, Dr. William E. Hatcher. It contains a study hall, commercial department, class-rooms with table arm chairs, administrative oflices, and mess hall. The latter is large, well-lighted and ventilated and, like the kitchen, is beautifully tiled throughout. JOHN J. WICKER CHAPEL This is, as it should be, the most beautiful building on the campus, with a seating capacity of 700. It was built by a real artist and school authorities were so pleased with the skill of the Workman that a bronze tablet was placed in the tower reading as follows: "To Felix de Panicis, who laid every brick and stone in this building and put character in his workf' The beautiful memorial stained-glass cathedral windows are an inspiration to all. The Titmus Tower was the gift of Mr. E. H. Titmus of Peters- burg, Va., in memory of his father and mother, Richard C. Titmus and Harriet E. Tatum. .,,.

Completed at a cost of S300,000.00, it is 160 feet long and 86 feet wide. On the first floor are two basketball courts with bleachers which, together with the balcony, will seat 1000 spectators. Also on the same floor is a large stage with every modern lighting and stage equipment. The stage dressing rooms and motion picture projecting booth are lo- cated on the balcony floor. At the entrance on che first floor, adjoining the lobby, are trophy, lounge, and oiiice rooms. The basement floor is equipped with a large locker room, varsity and junior varsity dressing rooms, visitors' dressing room, three shower rooms, separate wrestling, boxing, table tennis, hand ball, equipment rooms, and a splendid drying equipment system. These, with many other features, combine to make it one of the largest and best equipped gymnasiums to be found on any academy campus in the entire country. THE ALUMNI GYMNASIUM This structure is a modern gymnasium in every particular, room for basketball, lockers, shower baths, game rooms, athletic equipment, etc. It is constructed of brick and concrete. Recent renovation and altera- tions have transformed this building into a virtually new facility. This gymnasium is used exclusively by the junior School. SWIMMING Pool. Through the generosity of two of our trustees, Mr. M. C. Thomas and the late Mr. B. F. Dickerson of Charlottesville, Virginia, our cadets enjoy an inside all-season swimming pool. This pool is connected with the east side of the gymnasium, and is equipped with the latest and most complete water purification system obtainable. Here boys can learn how to swim under proper and safe supervision. I i 1 Q , f.

The Academy is accredited by the Virginia State Board of Public Education and is a fully accredited member of the Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools of the Southern States. Its graduates are therefore admitted on certificate and without examination to standard colleges and universities belonging to the Associations. Parents are advised, however, that a boy's course at the Academy ought to be planned in advance with reference to the particular college or profession that he will enter. Credit for Work done will be given on certificates from other accredited secondary schools, although each case will be treated solely on its merits. A cadet who may come to us for the senior year's work or for a year of post-graduate preparatory school work before he enters college, regardless of the number of units he may present, will only be granted one of our diplomas when he has satisfied our diploma require- ments and completed four major units fone of which must be second, third or fourth year Englishj under our own instructors. This necessi- tates at least one full school year's attendance at Fork Union Military Academy. A "unit" is a prescribed subject studied successfully for not less than one hundred and sixty recitation periods. Each instructor gives his closest attention to the individuals in his class, and groups are made small enough to be developed to the best advantage. Cadets may not drop a subject and assume another without written permission from the Head- master. Our passing grade is 7521. For college certification an average grade of 80'Zp in all subjects is required. We will give credit for the following units of work completed in an accredited summer school: One or two half-units of new work, or One or two units of repeated work on which failures were not bad, or One half-unit of new and one unit of repeated work. We do not believe a student can successfully cover more than the above. l49l FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY CHEMISTRY LABORATORY DIPLOMA REQUIREMENTS FOR COLLEGE PREPARATORY COURSES The requirements for graduation in the college preparatory courses are listed below.

Q , f THE COLORS I 70 I FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY DISCIPLINE AT FORK UNION ISCIPLINE AT Fork Union Military Academy follows the be- lief that the best group discipline is that which tends to develop self discipline in the individual. Therefore the system that has evolved through long experience and comprehensive study is a sys- tem based on merits and demerits. Certainly it must be recognized that understanding and interest and counsel are infinitely more effective than a blind policy of punishment. But, while offering understanding, inter- est and sympathetic counsel, it is felt that the Academy would be remiss in its duty to its cadets if a positive system of consequences, good and bad, was not offered these cadets in their most vitally formative years. Certain standards of scholastic achievement, conduct and daily rou- tine eificiency are in effect at Fork Union. The individual cadet who excels in the maintenance of these standards is awarded merits, which represent extra privileges or a lessening of certain routine military duties. On the other hand, the cadet who inexcusably falls below the standards is penalized to the extent of his deficiency. The great percentage of parents in this country will honestly admit that they are not sure Whether they are too strict or too lenient with their boys. Over-severity and over-indulgence find their roots in the same rich soil of parental love, and frequently there is a wide divergence of opinion within the walls of a single home. The parent is not to be blamed for this. For in the most delicate process in human relations, namely the raising of a child, the parent has for example only the methods of his own parents fwhich may not be quite applicablej, and the example of equally confused neighbors. There is the constant factor of "the boy next door," whose different pattern of allowed behavior may evoke unfortunate if illogical contrast in the mind of one's own son. And there is the further element of time involved-the element that limits the amount of time that parents can spend with a boy in this era of a highly competitive struggle for existence. Indeed, it is a matter of pride that American parents have accomplished what they have in the face of tremendous difficulties. Here, at Fork Union, under the present system, many of those dif- ficulties are alleviated, with a consequent higher expectation of success. Through the fifty years of Fork Union's existence, the thousands of boys who have attended the Academy have, in effect, taught their teachers many things. They have furnished a rich reservoir of experience Where- E711 FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY by present and future generations can be aided, and whereby the Faculty and Administration may act with surety born of proven methods. Here at Fork Union is the true element of democracy that is neces- sary to constructive discipline. The individual cadet knows in advance what is expected of him. He also knows that the same standards apply to every other cadet on the campus. He knows that all tangible, con- trollable factors have been equalized. His clothes are as good as, and no better than, any other cadetls. His hours for study are equal to those for all other cadets. His diet is the same. He is on his own, and he is on his own in the truest sense, because he is in an environment of absolute equal opportunity, an environment that blesses individual initiative, encourages individual effort, and rewards individual achievement. Another important attribute of the disciplinary system of Fork Union is that it affords the individual cadet immediate concrete results from his daily living. Many intelligent boys have, in the moulding years of youth, quite naturally formed unfortunate habits that become in- creasingly disadvantageous with maturity. They acquired such habits because, like unnoticed weeds in a seldom tended garden, the habits were not truly troublesome until they were too deeply imbedded to be easily rooted out. How much better for a boy to earn immediate tangible reward for neatness, promptness, and thoroughness, to thereby learn, and form habits on the credit side. And for the boy who finds self discipline difli- cult at first, how much better that it be brought to his attention at an age when mistakes are less costly and the lesson easier learned. The penalties for minor departures from the established Academy standards are as follows: loss of certain recreation privileges, assignment to extra study periods, assignment to extra parade or guard duty. Under no circumstances will any cadet be subjected to corporal punishment. In summary, our belief is that discipline is not a mere system of acts. Discipline is an idea. l72l gif?

Q: - ACCREDITED RESERVE OFFICERS TRAINING CORPS Fork Union Military Academy is one of a class of schools that has been designated by the War Department as Essentially Military or Class MS and specially designated by the Secretary of War as Class MI. Fork Union Military Academy was designated MS in January 1919 and since that time has been authorized to maintain a unit of the Junior Division of the Reserve Oiiicers Training Corps commonly referred to as the R.O.T.C. In August 1946 Fork Union Military Academy received special designation from the Secretary of War as a Class MI School and received authorization to include the Elementary Course of the Senior Division, R.O.T.C. This MI Course enables the student who can qualify to com- plete the first 2 years of his college R.O.T.C. while at a high school level in his academic work. Since the school is essentially military, all cadets are under military control and discipline throughout the entire school year, and all are required to take military training. Those who are eligible are enrolled in the R.O.T.C. Course. However, a quota is allotted the school each year fixing the maximum number that may be enrolled during that year. This quota ordinarily cannot be increased, therefore no more than this number can be allowed to take the course. To be eligible for enrollment che student must meet certain War Department requirements, the most important of which are the following: For the MS Course For the MI Course a. He must be at least fourteen years of a. All the requirements that are required age. for the MS Course. b. He must be an American citizen, b. The student must pass such screening either by birth or naturalization, and or general survey tests as the War in case of doubt the student is re- Department may require. quired to furnish proof of citizenship. c.

He must be physically qualified, de- last two years of high school instruc- termined by a physical examination tion at the time of enrollment in the conducted by the school physician. MI course. I74I MILITARY INSTRUCTION BY UNITED STATES ARMY OFFICERS FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY Students enrolled in the R.O.T.C. MS Course pursue a two year course and those enrolled in the MI Course pursue a 2 year course as prescribed by the War Department, consisting of theoretical and prac- tical instruction in military science and tactics conducted in the class- room, on the indoor target range, on the drill field and on the terrain set aside for combat training. Students who are not enrolled in the R.O.T.C. Course for failure to meet requirements, or because of limited quota, take part in certain drills and ceremonies but receive no theo- retical instruction. Students entering Fork Union Military Academy for the first time without prior R.O.T.C. training are enrolled in the first year MS Course unless they are academically a Junior in which case they will be enrolled in the first year MI Course provided they meet all the other requirements. Those students with prior R.O.T.C. training pursue the course their R.O.T.C. record shows them to be qualified for. Students progrees through the second, third and fourth year courses as long as they remain eligible and their academic and R.O.T.C. work is satisfactory. The R.O.T.C. courses are not given at the expense of academic instruction. The two are co-equal in importance. Students enrolled in the R.O.T.C. are required to complete all academic work satisfactorily and may be refused continuance in the R.O.T.C. for failure to do so. The student will be benefited in many ways by pursuing the R.O.T.C. courses. Some of these benefits are: a. Forming the habits of obedience, punctuality, truthfulness, neatness and courtesy. b. Development of confidence or reliance in himself, acquired through the knowledge gained and the practice of instructing and commanding others. These will be of great benefit to the student no matter whether he enters military service or remains in civilian life.

VIRGINIA MCCREADY Nurse THE MA PLLZS Academy Infirmary LJEIJICMXL UARTERS for cadets who may be sick are located in our new Infirmary, the Maples. We have ten well equipped hospital rooms and in addition a modern diet kitchen, Nurse's and Doctor's offices. Cadets who are not well enough to attend classes will be required to report to the Infirmary and will be put under the care of the nurses and the Academy Physician. All food for the sick is prescribed by our physician or nurses and is prepared in the Infirmary kitchen. Qur School Physician calls daily and is subject to call at any time. We have a staff of three nurses on twenty-four hour duty. We know what it means to parents when the boy leaves home. There is always a frequent thought of him and his welfare is ever upon the father and mother hearts. This is particularly true when related to health and that is why the care of our cadets with any indisposition is of first importance. We have left nothing to be desired in this respect. If a boy is in immediate need of surgical attention, no time is lost in an endeavor to meet the situation. For normal medical requirements and hospitalization we feel that our staff here meets every requirement. l79i W 1- R 1 1 I OF THE INFIRMARY INFIRMARY DIET KITCHEN A ROOM IN TI-IE INFIRMARY l-'Q' FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY Beautifully located with perfect quiet, with plenty of sunshine and ventilation the usual stay in the Infirmary is brief. Many of our patrons have visited the Maples and they are high in their praise of che provision made for sick boys. We invite our patrons to visit our Infirmary when they come to Fork Union. All necessary dental work should be attended to before the boy leaves home for school. His eyes should be examined by a competent oculist and glasses secured if needed. It would be well to be vaccinated although this can be given after a student arrives at the Academy. These precautions may save the loss of much time. All cadets are required to receive inoculation against typhoid fever, provided inoculation has not been received within the past three years. This must be done at home and certificate brought to our school physi- cian. The Academy surgeon, whose office is in the village, is in daily touch with the cadets. The constant attention of the Academy nurse and physician insure the best protection for the cadets. The exceptional record of the Academy in the health of its cadets is a matter of pardonable pride. In the important matter of physical exercise the military regime is reasonable, regular and systematic. Dur- ing the afternoon there is a regular period for company and battalion drills and once a week when weather permits, full dress parades. Regu- larity and thoroughness of the military exercises contribute much to the health and growth of the cadets, and physical improvement is always a cause for real satisfaction on the part of parents and friends. The drills are supplemented, of course, by various forms of athletics under a competent director. The natural drainage of the campus is perfect, part of the water going into the James and part into the Rivanna Rivers. Situated on a plateau in the foothills of Virginia the village has a rare advantage of escaping the malarias of the tidewater and the fevers of the mountains. Fork Union has long been known as a most healthful locality. i811 OUR MODERN KITCHEN Well cooked food, abun- duntly served FOOD AT FORK UNION Good daily health depends on plenty of nourishing food. We know that well-cooked food, in a properly balanced diet, is essential for growing boys. Wfe personally see to it that each boy has a sufhcient amount of wholesome food to satisfy his needs and every effort is made to secure the best quality of food. Choice selections are made from a number of markets and any inferior quality is rejected. This policy guarantees a wide variety and the best quality of food for our tables. All meats are government-inspected. An adequate refrigeration system insures a large supply of fresh meats and fresh vegetables. Only pasteurized milk is served to our boys. Our dietitian and assistant dietitian are experts with years of experience. Our beautifully tiled kitcben bas recently been completely renovateal and tbe very best possible botel equipment installed tbrougbout. It is unsurpassed in quality and ejfieieney. Every effort is made, by the dietitian and his staff, to prepare a tasty, well-balanced meal. We operate on the theory that plenty of good food is essential to the health and happiness of our boys. Our dining rooms are modern in every respect. They are arranged in three sections having a seating capacity of 550. Each section is beauti- fully tiled, well lighted, and the tables are so arranged as to insure quick and efficient serving. Each table accommodates eight persons. Cadets are given ample time to eat as much as they may desire and a fine spirit of wholesome fellowship prevails at all meals. CORNER IN DINING ROOM One of tbree tiled dining rooms Seating Capacity-5 5 0 UNIFORM AND BOOK DEPARTMENT UN IF ORMS We confess that "clothes do not make the manf' but we realize that neat, attractive clothes are one of the marks of a gentleman. We there- fore insist on our cadets being Well dressed. Our uniforms are made of the finest "Charlottesville Clothn from the Charlottesville XVoolen Mills and should not he confused with other cheaper cadet gray cloth. After the first year the uniform cost is considerably less due to the fact that the more expensive articles last several years. The cost of uniform should not he added to the school expense any more than the cost of clothes during the snmnier. It is a clothing expense which would he incurred no matter what school the hoy attended or even if he remained at home. The purchase of these uniforms is a distinct economy in the matter of clothing as they are unusually durable and stand the hard wear of active school life far more than do ordinary clothes. The uniform includes the following articles, all of which must be brought through the Academy: Uniform Outfit Provided for Upper School 1 Service Cap and Seal 1 Battle Jacket and Insignia 1 pair Coveralls 1 Overseas Cap 1 Jacket 1 pair Dress Gloves 2 pair Fatigue Trousers 6 Shirts 1 Regulation Rain Coat 2 pair White Duck Trousers 3 Neckties Waist and Dress Belts 2 White Cap Covers 1 F. U. M. A. Belt and Buckle and Buckles 1 Overcoat 2 pair White Cotton Gloves l83l FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY The required uniform gives the cadet three full uniforms: one for full dress, one for dress and one for school wear. The coveralls and jacket are worn for work and fatigue duty. Cadets careless with clothing, who need additional articles, must purchase same. With proper care the uniform is ample. Cadet Officers must purchase through the school such articles and insignia as are required by their rank, as follows: West Point Sword Coatee Chevrons according to rank White Sword Slings Sash Insignia Shako and Plume OHicer's Belt and Buckle Uniform Outfit Provided for junior School The following uniform is required for boys in the Lower School: 1 Service Cap and Seal 1 Cape 1 Regulation Rain Coat 1 Overseas Cap 3 Neckties 2 Pairs Coveralls 1 Dress Blouse 6 Shirts 1 Pair Dress Gloves 3 Pairs Trousers 1 Pair White Duck Trousers 2 Pairs White Gloves 1 jacket 1 White Cap Cover 1 Waist Belt and Buckle 1 F.

WEATHERLY Coaching Stuff Coaching Staff Coaching Staff 86 FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY THE ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT "For the glory of young men is in their strength." INCE THE DAYS of the ancient Greeks, man has known the value of athletic sports. He has known their value to his own body, their value to his mind, and their value to the emergence of his fuller character. It has also been evident that the values to be gained from athletic sports must be gained as a participant rather than as a spectator. The lessons of initiative, tenacity, and good sportsmanship are not easily learned vicariously by lookers-on. Therefore, the athletic program at Fork Union is based on the needs and capabilities of every cadet. It is designed for the benefit of the entire student body, rather than for the exclusive benefit of the phys- ically talented few. It is a program that has evolved to promote activi- ties for the non-varsity boy as well as for the varsity boy. It is founded on the belief that active participation within the Safe limits of the in- dividua1's capabilities is to be greatly valued over the frequent situation where many boys simply watch a few boys play well. The Athletic Department, then, is one of the most vital factors in- fluencing the overall development of the Fork Union cadet, and as such, deserves the recent, tremendous expansion of facilities toward that pur- pose. Included in those facilities are: THE NEW CYMNASIUM THE JUNIOR SCHOOL CYMNASIUM THE INDOOR SWIMMING POOL 4 FOOTBALL PLAYING FIELDS 2 BASEBALL DIAMONDS 2500-SEAT CONCRETE STADIUM NEW QUARTER-MILE CINDER TRACK THE MAIN 7 -ACRE ATHLETIC FIELD- SIX NEWLY CONSTRUCTED ALL-WEATHER TENNIS COURTS AUXILIARY 2-ACRE ATHLETIC FIELD 8 HORSESHOE COURTS l-ACRE SURFACED PLAYGROUND Cfor the very young Junior School Cadetsj. E871 FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY The personnel of the Athletic Department is headed by the beloved Coach Thomas, who has devoted 22 years to the athletic supervision and coaching of boys at Fork Union. The members of the athletic staff and the intramural sports director are young men of proven ability, and are aware of the high responsibility of their positions. Under the careful supervision of these men, every cadet is encour- aged and trained on teams of his own size, age and strength. They are protected physically not only by this mature supervision, but also by the most modern personal equipment.

Boys are admitted beginning at age six. The Junior School is entirely separate from the Upper School, and, in this way, there are no part-time teachers in the high school department teaching in the elementary department. All teachers here devote their entire time to elementary instruction. In che same way, all sports, physical education, recreational activities are separate. The dormitory and classroom buildings are separate. This gives us an opportunity to administer to the needs of each cadet. The system, also, provides for the differences existing between high school and elementary school boys. In the dormitory, We have a number of housemothers and assistants. In co-operation with Faculty officers they give close attention to the various needs of each cadet. In the classroom, elementary instruction of the highest type is offered. We feel that there is a great need in this country for thorough elementary education, and that this is one place we can practice it without fear or favor. Our experienced teachers are well trained for the work in the elementary field. It is gratifying to see how students improve under their direction. In addition to the regular school hours, teachers spend one hour each night with classes so that the boys may have an opportunity to catch up anything they may have missed in previous assignments. Teacher tests, as well as nationally known l97l standardized tests, tell us what improvement under our system the students make through the school year. In addition to classroom Work, We have various other activities which provide for the physical as Well as the intellectual and spiritual sides of life. We have physical education classes, recreational activities, such as parlor games, hobby rooms, game rooms, intramural athletic contests, military training, and religious exercises. A JUNIOR SCHOOL PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASS l 98 l JUNIOR SCHOOL CADET OFFICERS Military training in the junior School consists of a well-rounded program of military drill and military discipline. Regularly scheduled drills are conducted throughout the entire year. They are based on the accepted standards of training for all military organizations. During these drills, the cadet ofhcers are in charge of their own units, and a faculty oflicer is present at all times in the capacity of observer and advisor. A sound, practical, program of military discipline can add much to the character and bearing of any boy. We attempt to instill in our boys the fundamental principles of military courtesy by requiring them to practice these rules in their daily contacts with superior cadet officers and faculty officers. Such training offers every opportunity for the development of qualities of leadership found in many boys. It stimulates the growth of self-reliance, self-respect, respect for others, punctuality, and reliability which are so necessary in the development of real manhood. We have our own Chapel exercises in the Junior School classroom Assembly Hall. Here we meet, also, for Sunday School each Sunday morning. Each teacher does his best not only to explain the lesson, but to answer questions that boys will ask concerning their own well- being. On other occasions the boys attend Vespers and Chapel services with Upper School cadets in the Chapel. All.. LIBRARY JUNIOR SCHOOL JUNIOR SCHOOL BASKETBAL1.

I 51 ii ll ll JUNIOR SCHOOL CADET CORPS ON SUNDAY PARADE L 108 1 BREMO Cfour miles from Fork Unionj Vlilfftf by llrousands of people, the Mansion in dcfail is worthy of ifs original corzcejrfion by Thomas Ie arson GENERAL INTEREST The authorities of the Academy recognize that "boys will be boys," that they are not men of mature judgment, that they are sometimes thoughtless and careless, that they need guidance and not harsh treat- ment. lt is the purpose of the Academy to make full-rounded men in body, mind and character, and every member of the faculty feels that he bas a sacred task in undertaking so great an enterprise. The discipline at Fork Union is not stern in any sense. Although it is firm and unyielding, it is administered With calmness and delibera- tion. The cadets have at all times access to the counsel and advice of the officers and instructors. No rule or decision is made that does not contemplate the Well-being of the cadets. If the administration of the Academy finds that the influence of any cadet is harmful to his fellows, either physically, mentally, socially or morally, the express right is reserved to dismiss such a cadet or to call for his withdrawal quietly without waiting for any overt act and with- out rendering any specific reasons for such action. No cadet is allowed to room or take meals outside the Academy L 109 1 FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY buildings except Cay boys who live with their own parents in the village or community, Qbj students so assigned by the administration. Excursions may be arranged at very small cost with the use of our school bus to points of historic interest under the leadership of one of our instructors. SUPERVISION Fork Union possesses the advantages of a military academy and also those of a home school. Members of the faculty, living in the buildings with the cadets, are eager to give counsel and advice. This is a unique addition to the usual military school arrangement. In receiving a cadet at Fork Union, the Academy oilicials feel that they are receiving him for the larger part of a year into their home, therefore for the cadet's sake and for the sake of all concerned, the oiiicials gladly assume a genuine interest in the cadet and his possessions. At the first of the session, after the Christmas holidays, and some- times during the year a boy away from home may become homesick. This is natural, no matter what provision is made. Loss of appetite, restlessness and nervousness are symptoms. Sometimes boys will write home various excuses in order to get their parents to send for them to return. Parents may at all times write or visit the Academy to discuss such matters, but the authorities understand this condition and always handle each case as carefully as possible and we ask that parents co- operate with us by extending fall confidence to our experience in such matters. Attention to duties, studies and plenty of exercise are the best correctives. We rejoice that the spirit of the school soon cures home- sickness. VISITORS The parents of the cadets are cordially invited to visit Fork Union at any time. They may secure ample accommodation in the hotel or in various boarding houses at reasonable rates. We earnestly request patrons not to visit their sons at Fork Union the first month of the opening of schoolg if your boy is a little homesick a visit would make him all the more so. From long experience we know you will have a happy result in cooperating with us in this matter. The above may sound formidable at first reading, but it will be agreed that these rules are necessary and healthful, they are not intended to work a hardship on any cadet, but rather to protect his interests. They are set forth to take care of any emergencies that may arise when a cadet puts himself out of harmony with the spirit of the school. fiioj FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY HAZING The authorities are happy to announce that there is no hazing at Fork Union. Any attempt to impose upon another cadet will be subject to discipline. "Fagging" is also prohibited. MoRALs Any offense or omission contrary to the modern code of morals or contrary to good order and military discipline not specifically for- bidden in the foregoing paragraphs is hereby made punishable. RECOMMENDATIONS REQUIRED Before accepting a boy at Fork Union the school requires recom- mendations from responsible persons who know the applicant and are willing to vouch for his character and home environment. We do this for the protection of our student body. ACCIDENT INSURANCE The Academy has made available for our students a plan which guarantees to reimburse the parent for any medical expense which may arise from an accident in which a student is injured during the school year. This covers all medical costs up to 5500.00 for each accident. The cost is 812.00 for the entire session, and any accident is covered whether at school, at home or while traveling. r MARKING Every article brought from home must be plainly and indelibly marked with the owner's full name. Uniforms and clothing issued at the Academy will be marked by the Academy. DECORATIONS Excellence in the Academic Department is rewarded by the privilege of wearing the Academic Star. For each three months term of work a silver star is given. Any cadet winning two silver stars consecutively in one year is awarded the gold star. Any cadet having an average less than B -, falling below C on any subject, or whose conduct is unsatis- factory, will not be considered for this award. Sci-1oLARsI-ups A number of scholarships are available, for Fork Union graduates, in various colleges and universities in the United States. These scholar- ships are awarded on merit and our recommendations.

"- XR QW' FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY HISTORY HE LAND now comprising the Academy campus has the unique distinction of never having been sold. In early colonial times it was part of a large tract of land which was deeded by the English King to one of his favorites. The particular part of this tract of which the Academy campus is composed was handed down from father to son until the last heir set it aside by deed for school purposes. It was later given to the trustees of Fork Union Military Academy. The school is now controlled by a Board of Trustees. The village of Fork Union has for many generations been noted for its excellent schools and some of the greatest teachers of the past generation taught in the community--Dr. john A. Broadus, Dr. P. S. Henson, and Dr. George Boardman Taylor being among the number. The inevitable result has been a high intellectual standard among the people and a sincere love of learning. These characteristics will be recognized as being among the most valuable assets which an academy can possess. In 1898, under the inspiring leadership of the late Dr. William E. Hatcher, a group of citizens of the village of Fork Union, with which Dr. Hatcher had been intimately associated for fifty years, joined together to establish the present Academy. A very desirable tract of land was donated, buildings were erected and a corps of instructors provided. A few years later the growth of the Academy necessitated other buildings, which were promptly erected. So successful was the Academy in its program of properly training boys for the challenge of life that its growth was rapid. Through the generous support of many devoted individuals and the Baptist denomi- nation, added facilities were provided until today it is one of the largest of its kind in the entire country. LOCATION IN THE HILLS OF VIRGINIA, THE MOTHER OF STATES HE LOCATION gives Fork Union a great advantage. The Academy is remote from the evil influences of the small town A and the dangers of the large city. A boy could not be in a safer place. The property is two miles from Fork Union Station on the Virginia Air Line Division of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway and four miles from Bremo Station on the James River Division of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. Any of the six daily trains may be reached in a few minutes from the school. Federal Highway Nos. 211 and 15, from Washington, D. C., to Raleigh, N.

When a cadet enters Fork Union, both he and his parents or guardians agree to abide by these and all rules made from time to time by the Academy authorities. Cadets will be under the authority of the Academy from the time of their arrival until their departure after the end of the session. As long as a cadet is at Fork Union he is under school regulations. When transportation is furnished by the Academy from Fork Union to other points, cadets will be under school regulations. Assignments to rooms will be made by the Academy, no changes will be made without the consent of the commandant.

The commandant may require cadets to purchase new clothing if, in his opinion, old ones are unfit. The president or headmaster will reserve a period daily to permit cadets to consult about any matter. They are reminded, however, that minor matters of routine and discipline are referred to the commandant, and no cases can be brought to the president or headmaster to obtain a reversal of decision except when the cadet has permission from the sub- ordinate to carry the matter higher.

Cadets are permitted to smoke in quarters with permission of parents according to school regulations. Smoking is discouraged and the dangers, especially for growing boys, are set forth in literature given cadets for their information and education on the subject. We believe it is far better to inform and persuade and get voluntary action than to issue orders and compel. Card playing, gambling, drinking of intoxicants, introduction of intoxicants into barracks or having same in possession and use of vulgar, profane or obscene language is strictly forbidden and will be ample cause for dismissal. All cadets are required to attend Sunday school, vespers, and all services held in the Academy chapel. For those desiring it, arrange- ments may be made for Catholic boys to attend their services. All cadets must attend Sunday vesper service at 4.00 P. M. in a body unless absent from Fork Union. We cannot permit cadets to absent them- selves from divine service. Demerits given will be posted on bulletin board daily and cadets desiring to make explanation will do so that day. Explanation may be made verbally. Demotion: Cadets who show by their first month's work that they are not capable of doing the required work of a given class will be demoted to the next lower class in that subject. Special Tests: Cadets who are absent from tests will arrange with the instructors for special tests. These tests will be given at the discretion of the instructors or at the request of the headmaster. No cadet will engage in any commercial enterprise without first receiving a permit from the treasurer. Cadets will be granted leave of absence only in accordance with Academy regulations. Such leave will be granted by the commandant. A cadet desiring a leave must first have the permission of his parents. This permission must be sent direct to commandant by the parent.

Their neatness, interest and alertness were evident on the face of each individual boy. CHIEF JUSTICE EDWARD W. HUDGINS Miami, Florida Although my son has attended Fork Union but a few months, I thought when he was home Christmas that he already showed results of the training there. He was quite proud of his uniform and wore it with dignity. MRS. LARRY SIMPSON New York, N. Y. I am so pleased that my son graduated from a school which helped him in many ways and especially made him more devoted to God and his fellow man. BERTRAM H. PETERSON Steelton, Pennsylvania I have just received a letter from the War Department stating that I am qualified for admission to the United States Military Academy. I know Fork Union did much to assist me in success- fully passing the exams and I wish to take the opportunity now to thoroughly acknowledge my appreciation of what was done for me there. CHARLES RUPP Arlington, Virginia You can little realize my reaction to everything upon my return to the States, after an absence of nearly four years, to find my seventeen year old son developed into a fine, clean-cut, manly fellow, assuming his responsibility at the Academy and to further find his efforts had been recognized in the medals and honors he had obtained for out- standing accomplishments. It was also gratifying, after his graduation, to note the interest the Academy took in helping to place him in a University during these stringent educa- tional times. To say that we are deeply grateful to you and all that Fork Union Military Academy stands for would mildly express our feeling. H. P. HEVENOR Norfolk, Virginia I have been wanting to write you ever since Fran came home Christmas, to express my appreciation of what you have done for him. A military school does for a lad what nothing else can do and though I hesitated to send him, what you have done for him has sold me body and soul on your school. You have added culture, polish, politeness, obedience f12sJ FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY and given him a guidance, to do in him. I know dreds of others confidence in his own ability, under proper things, and I am proud of the improvement that you are doing the same thing for hun- and you are making a real contribution to the homes of the nation. I want to HENRY W. TIFFANY, D.D. Richmond, Virginia avail myself of the opportunity of placing myself definitely on record with your school and its offi- cials regarding Junior School. ing shown to my the management and directorship of the The very kind consideration and understand- grandson mean a great deal to a parent of a small child away from home. R. V. MOORE, SR. Washington, D. C. I have been at the school only once this term, but I want to tell you that I do not know when I have seen a finer Union. son's shown this year spirit among a bunch of boys than was shown at Fork I was sold on the Academy before since this is my second year there, but the progress that has been is, in my opinion, remarkable. Of supreme importance to me is the success you are achieving in character building. I have noticed a marked change for the better in my own son and also in some of the boys whom I knew at the School last year. I feel that Mrs. Raesly and I, as well as all other parents who have sons at Fork Union, owe a sincere debt of gratitude to you. I want to wonderful place LEON RAESLY Lilybrook, W. Va. tell you again I think Fork Union is a for a boy. My son was completely happy there and I shall never be able to say enough nice things about the wonderful work which is being done at Fork Union. Both Mrs. MRS. J. W. AILSTOCK Bloomfield, N. J. Fowley and myself feel that you have done a great deal for our son this past year and he is very anxious to return for a post graduate course. I want to J. LESTER FOWLEY Syracuse, New York express my deep appreciation of all that you and your school have done for my son. My sincere thanks for your wisdom and kindness in dealing with my boy and for the good job you have done in regard to him. GEORGE M. RETAN, M. D. Charlotte, N. C. I just can't praise Fork Union too much. It meant so much to my boys mentally, physically and spiritually. We consider Fork Union the finest prep school in the country. MRS. vERNoN w.
