This letter is written to those boys and to parents of boys who want no "stumbling up to manhood." 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. X I 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, Hreproof living quarters, a scientifically planned and abundant diet, a regulated daily schedule, daily body-building exercise, voluntary participation in competitive sports, with superb equipment, facilities and direction for those sports.- By helping mental growth we mean an academic program based upon numerically small classes, a faculty carefully selected for pro- fessional 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.

X X 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. C C J.

"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? I'm 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 line. 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 iit 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. I've 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 diificult 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. E111 THE ACADEMY FRGM THE AIR SCHOOL PLANT BUILDINGS AND EQUIPMENT 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 HALL 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. 7.7.4--A-, .,.. .-, ,,..,. . ,L ,. -, .... ., ,, V 4 on v. ig 4 M4 U11 ll 11. ia.. vu-ef I!- s ' -r X x -ni: X ll: x L v N li: x 3 1 3 - X 1 1 Z E E Q E A Z J E ,I 5 J E E 1 5 I E E 1 Q 1 1 1 - A L ,- - W- . -W ,,.. , , ,. -.., , , ,, 4 ,, V - 71 ww- -"-- '- -- A, - -- f-... ,,,-,--S... if ,,V-,,,, .. .-., ,...,,,,,. ..,. ,,, , 'WV . . .

Occupying as it does a commanding position on the campus, its dignity of structure and quiet simplicity of design are a Htting monument to the beloved founder, Dr. William E. Hatcher. It contains the commercial department, class-rooms with table arm chairs, administrative ofHces, 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.

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 Junior School Cadets enjoy their own inside all-season swimming pool.

We know that well-cooked food, in a properly balanced diet, is essential for growing boys. We personally see to it that each boy has a sufficient 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 kitchen has recently been completely renovated and the very best possible hotel equipment installed throughout. It is unsurpassed in quality and efficiency. Every effort is made, by the dietitian and his staff, to prepare a tasty, well-balanced meal. 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 and 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.

FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY ACADEMIC DEPARTMENT HE CURRICULUM at Fork Union Military Academy is based upon the standard college entrance requirements of leading col- leges and universities. 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 examina- tion to standard colleges and universities belonging to the Associations. Parents are advised, however, that a boy's course at the Academy should be planned in advance with reference to the particular college or pro- fession 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 Cone 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 75 729. For college certification an average grade of 81 '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. f53l 'X .xx p V- t. . ' 3 gg-. X -X X . A N P-exam.

Therefore the system that has evolved through long experience and comprehensive study is a sys- tem based on merits and demerizfs. Certainly it must be recognized that understanding, 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 ia 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 efficiency 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 Cwhich may not be quite applicablelv , 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- f79l 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 cadet's. 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 absolutely equal opportunity, an environment that blesses individual initiative, encourages individual effort, and rewards individual achievement. I 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 diiii- 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.

It was so designated by the War Department in January 1919 and since that time has maintained a unit of the Reserve Oiflcers' Training Corps, commonly referred to as the R.O.T.C. 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. All cadets who are eligible are enrolled in the R.O.T.C. course. To be eligible for enrollment the student must meet certain Depart- ment of the Army requirements, the most important of which are the following: He must be at least fourteen years of age. He must be an American citizen by either birth or naturalization, and in case of doubt the student is required to furnish proof of citizenship. c. He must be physically qualified, deter- mined by a physical examination con- ducted by the school physician. He must meet such moral, loyalty, and general intelligence requirements as may be established by the Department of the Army. The R.O.T.C. training program presented at Fork Union Military Academy 1S referred to as "Military Schools Training". This program consists of a six year course of instruction leading to a United States Army Reserve Commission as a Second Lieutenant. Fork Union Military Academy conducts the first four years of this six year course of instruction. Students completing the R.O.T.C. course at Fork Union Military Academy may undertake additional training leading to an ofHcer's commission at a Military Junior College, or they may be granted constructive credit for the Basic Course, Senior Division R.O.T.C. which is conducted at the college academic level. Students enrolled in the R.O.T.C. course pursue a four year course as pre- scribed by the Department of the Army, consisting of theoretical and practical instruction in military science and tactics conducted in the classroom, on the l82l ii V if .gn U . ,u P Q Y fg' P V 'V ll ? ? 3 A I3 y.

Students Who are not enrolled in the R.O.T.C. course because of inability to meet requirements, take part in certain drills and cere- monies but receive no theoretical instruction. The military instruction is progressive from year to year. Accordingly, students Without previous military instruction or training are enrolled in Mili- tary Schools Training Qfirst yearj , regardless of academic standing. Those stu- dents with prior R.O.T.C. training pursue the course of instruction for which the P.M.S.8cT. considers them qualified. Students progress through Military Schools Training Program 2, 3, and 4 as long as they remain eligible and their R.O.T.C. and academic 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.0.T.C. are re- quired to complete all academic Work satisfactorily and may be refused con- tinuance in the R.0.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. . u 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. , - , -had . , A MJ kg HM- A i I r oPF1cERs or THE HATCHER R1FLEs I 34 l 1 ah ,.,, Yemfmefmefmsfm sa AU l Q 5 i F? fe.: P., 3 5, E?

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. Our 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 meets every requirement. f87l -' ....-.., .14 ,,.., .,-.. .. . ,. M --q ' 'ff Q R2?i--wf-we-1" Q -ww f ffiiif. iiwfi ,M .

Many of our patrons have visited The Maples and they are high in their praise of the provision made for sick boys. 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 constant attention of the Academy nurses and physician insures the best protection for the cadets. i 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 isalways 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, Fork Union has longbeen known as a most healthful locality. , T891 FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY WHAT TO BRING WEARING APPAREL BROUGHT BY A CADET SHOULD BE CLEARLY MARKED WITH WOVEN NAME TAPES.

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- dividual'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 MARION C. THOMAS GYMNASIUM CUpper Schoolb THE JUNIOR SCHOOL GYMNASIUM Two INDOOR SWIMMING POOLS 4 FOOTBALL PLAYING FIELDS 2 BASEBALL DIAMONDS 2500-SEAT cONcRETE STADIUM NEW QUARTER-MILE CINDER TRACK THE MAIN 7-ACRE ATHLETIC FIELD- SIX ALL-WEATHER TENNIS COURTS AUXILIARY 2-ACRE ATHLETIC FIELD HORSESHOE COURTS 1-ACRE SURFACED PLAYGROUND Cfor the young Junior School Cadetsj. f95l 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. He is pro- tected physically not only by this mature supervision, but also by the most modern personal equipment.

The Junior School is entirely separate from the Upper School and, in this Way, there are no part-time teachers in the high school depart- ment teaching in the elementary department. All teachers here devote their entire time to elementary instruction. In the same Way, all sports, physical education and recreational facilities 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 oflicers 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 Work in the elementary field. It is gratifying to see how students improve EIOSJ FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY 1 I FN ASSEMBLY FOR ROLL CALL under their direction.

We have physical education classes, recreational activities, hobby rooms, game rooms, intramural athletic contests, military training, and religious exercises. 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 officers are in charge of their own units, and a faculty officer 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 cadet officers and faculty oflicers. 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 Assembly Hall. Cn Sundays the boys attend Chapel services with Upper School cadets in the Chapel.

' "UPPER BREMOH Qfour miles from Fork Unionj Visited hy thousands of people, the Mansion in detail is worthy of its original conception by Thomas Ie erson 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. It 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 has 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 permitted to room or take meals outside the Academy L 121 1 M,-Y ... ,,..-4 ,, v--.....i,,.. .. -.-N .. ,,, 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 stern 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 medical expense which may arise from an accident in which a student is injured during the school year. This covers medical costs up to 5500.00 for each accident. The cost is 512.00 for the entire session, and any accident is covered whether at school, at home or while traveling. MARKING Every article hronght from home mast he plainly and indelihly marked with the owner's fall name. Uniforms and clothing issued hy the Academy will he marked here. DECORATIONS Excellence in the Academic Department is rewarded by the privilege of wearing the Honor Roll Ribbon. A gold star is place on the ribbon for each additional award.

A FEW ECHOES FROM MANY Richmond, Virginia Senator Robertson and I were very much impressed by the appearance of the Cadet Corps. Their neatness, interest and alertness were evident on the face of each individual boy' EDWARD W. HUDGINS, CHIEF JUSTICE Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals 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 and given him a confidence in his own ability, under proper guidance, to do things, and I am proud of the improvement in him. I know that you are doing the same thing for hun- dreds of others and you are making a real contribution to the h0IIlSS of the I'13'l'.iOI'1n W' D.D. Richmond, Virginia I want to avail myself of the opportunity of placing myself definitely on record with your school and its offi- cials regarding the management and directorship of the Junior School. The very kind consideration and understand- ing shown to my grandson mean a great deal to a parent of a small child away from home. R. V.
