Our Christian schools have realized in a large measure their obligations. Our staff of workers in every department has been greatly augmented by young men and young wo- men who have obtained a training in our academies and colleges and have gone to all parts of the world carrying major responsibilities in the various depart- ments of the organized work. The ones who are successful realize a life without sacrifice would be fruitless and unsatisfactory, Privileges and privations, blessings and sorrows, oppor- tunities and obstacles round out oharacter into nobility and greatness. --W.

C ollege Press Mount Vernon Academy Mount Vernon, Ohio edzmtion The students of Mount Vernon Academy grasp the opportunity to show their deep appreciation to one who has done so much for them. With an untiring love she is always ready to help one in need. As a coun- selor she is admired, as a teacher she is loved, and for her ever-cheering per- sonality she is envied. The students of Mount Vernon Academy deem it a privilege as they dedicate the 1949 Treasure Chest to: MRS. LEONARD J. SMITH Page Four Ji'i? QZE.

Principal and Business Mgr., Sociology, and Bible At a time when the youth of the world are becoming less and less stable about life and its responsibilities, it is most encouraging to be associated with a group of young people who are learning to face the realities of life with a seriousness and a purpose. The purpose of the youth of Mount Vernon Academy is one taken from their Saviour - the perfect example for all youth "From His earliest childhood He was possessed with one purpose. He lived to bless others." The fifty-eight seniors of this year, 1949, have expressed their purpose in the words cf their motto mln His Steps"-His life, their lifeg a purpose to- serve as He served, to sacrifice as He sacrificed, and to love as He loved. Youth with these ideals and purposes in life is the greatest need of the world today. Such are the youth whose faces are pictured on the pages of this book a product of which Mount Vernon Academy is justly proud. Page Six Ilzler Richard T. Nlinesinger, B. A.

Miller General information Aims The aims of education in this academy may be found in the principles laid down by one of the academy's founders: "We are called to the service of God and our fellow men, and to fit us for this service should be the object of our education." White. Thus Christian education as conceived by Seventh-day Adventists comprehends more than the pursuit of a certain course of study. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual powers. Objectives 1. To promote the development of a consistent Christian life. 2. To train for leadership in church and community. 3. To assist in the development of noble Christian character. 4. To inspire intelligent and sincere love for our country. ' 5. To stimulate an apreciatiqn of cultural value of the best in books, in nata- ture, and in music. 6. To lead to an appreciation of the dignity of labor. 7 To develop habits of accuracy, responsibility, and resourcefulness. Standard of Conduct See the STUDENT HANDBOOK by the Department of Education, Colum- bia Union Conference. They may be obtained upon request from the academy. History p The Mount Vernon school was opened as an academy i.n the fall if 1893., 'It was changed to a college in 1905, but at the time the Foreign Mission Seminary in Washington, D. C., was raised to the status of a college, Mount Vernon Col- lege was reduced to an academy as formerly. This change took place in 1914. Location V The city of Mount Vernon is situated near the geographical center of the state of Ohio, at the intersection of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and the Cleveland, Akron and Cincinnati Division of the Pennsylvania Rai1road,.mak- ing the academy of easy access. The Columbus-Akron Greyhoulncl Bus stops at the entrance to the academy. The academy is located in the midst of an exh tensive campus, one mile northeast of the city limits on the CCC Highway. A beautiful grove forms an attractive background. The surrounding country is hilly, affording a pleasing variety of landscape to the eye of the lover of nature. Joining the academy grounds is Hiawatha Park, which may be used by stu- dents at times during the school year. In the midst of this park is a lake where the students skate during the winter season. Admittance l A The academy is a coeducational institution, the privileges of which are not limited to young people of the Seventh-day Adventist faith. All persons of good character, without regard to religious experience or belief, are admitted topits classes on equal terms. The only requirment is that all cheerfully comply the regulations of-the school. Buildings ' The Academy buildings consist of an administration building, the dormitor- ies fLinden Hall for girls and HadleyxHall for boysj, the music studio QEchIo Hallj, the library, and the various industrial buildings.

At the opening of school each dormitory student is required to make a cash advance payment of 855000. At the close of the school term 542.00 will be refunded as a credit on th last stateement in May.

This discount will be granted by written applica- tion which should be made at the time of registration. 8. What financial plans does the school offer? The financial plans offered by the school include not only the minimum charges as outlined above, but the other necessary expenses fexcept - books and special ohargesj usually incurred by the average student. The total cost for the year for a girl is about 3550.00 and for a boy 5575.00 GIRLS MONTH Estimated YEAR Hrs. Labor Minimum Value of 3Cash Plans Cash Labor Per Week Hr.

The amount to be paid is that called for by the monthly statement. This varies according to the charges for board and other expenses, and the actua 9. IO. l labor performed. I If a student has the amount of cash called for in the last column, is he likely to get in debt to the school? Thatidepends on how faithfully the student performs his work assignment. Then too, there are times when there are slack spells that we have no con- trol over. Usually a student will be able to make the plan the chooses. How soon must the monthly statement be paid? It should be paid by the fifteenth of the month following the one billed for, after receivilng the statement. Students are automatically suspended from classes on that date unless satisfactory arrangements are made with the. Finance Committee. Seniors and Juniors may not join their classes or take then-,final semester examinations unless their account is paid or approved by the Finance Committee. - Page Fortyi-eight What part of his expenses can a student earn at school? Dormitory students during the past year earned an average of 609, of all expenses. The amount varies according to age, ability, and faithfulness. Are studenas allowed tiths on labor performed at school? The Mount Vernon Academy Board of Management has made it possible for students whose account is kept in balance each month to arrange at the business office for the transfer of credit earned by them to the Mount Ver- non church treasurer as tithe. What are dates for the financial statements? There will be nine equal statements, one issued at the end of each calendar month beginning with September and through May. You will notice that the academy is following the calendar month for its charges this year in- stead of the twenty-eight day period. This makes nine charges for the year instead of ten. What should the student bring with him? Biesides personal clothing, the student should bring bedding, consisting of four sheets, three pillow cases, a pillow, a bed spread, blankets, towels, and a sturdy laundry bag. If the student desires he may also bring a dresser scarf, cover for study table, window curtains, drapes, rugs, etc. Working clothes, aprons, etc., should be provided. Students are requested not to leave personal belongings at the school when they leave for the summer or permanently. The school cannot assume responsibility for these things and it frequently results in loss to the student. S May students room alone? When rooms are available, students may room alone. The room rental is then 521.00 per month. ls there .extra charge for laundry over and above the laundry includ- ed in the room and laundry charge? ' Each student is expected to send to our laundry the minimum laundry of 52.50 which is included in this room charge. Extra laundry or dry cleaning will show an extra charge on his statement over and above the minimum charge. May students withdraw cash on their accounts? Cash withdrawn may be made provided parents have made deposits in advance specifically for this purpose. ' May students live outside the school home who do not live in their own homies? Since the management is held responsible for the young people placed in its care, all nonresident, unmarried students are required to room and board in the school home. Exceptions to this rule are granted by the faculty in each case only when the student cannot finance his way in the school home, and has a definite position with some approved private family to work for his room and board. All students not living with their parents' or guardians are considered to be under the same regulations as school home students.
