Some of these subdivisions refer to highly technical matters in military instruction. However, the major portion of the inspection is based on inaiters about which every thoughtful parent, considering schools, is concerned, among which the following may be mentioned: 1. ADEQUACY OF BUILDINGS AND EQUIPMENT. 2. GENERAL SANITATION AND CLEANLINESS OF PREMISES AND BUILDINGS. 3 NEATNESS OF UNIFORMS3 CONDITION OF CADET QUARTERS AND PERSONAL EQUIP- MENT. 4. EFFICIENCY AND THOROUGHNESS OF MILITARY INSTRUCTION. 5. EXCELLENCE OF SCHOOL GOVERNMENT AND DISCIPLINE AS SHONVN BY COURTIQSY AND PROMPT RESPONSIVENESS OF CADETS. tm. JUDGMENT, INITIATIVE, AND LEADERSHIP DEVELOPED IN CADET COMMISSIONED AND NONCOMMISSIONED OFFICERS, DEMONSTRATED IN VARIOUS DIFFICULT AND IZXACTING TESTS. It will be noted that these are matters of fundamental interest to parents, separate and apart from mili- tary schools. The distinction of HONOR SCHOOL designation is much coveted among military schools. The schools inspected are located over the area from New York to New Mexico and from Minnesota and Wis- consin to the Gulf of Mexico. TENNESSEE MILITARY INSTITUTE is one of the schools selected for this distinction through the inspection of 1936, as shown in the radiogram quoted above. v Lo DQ. X ,W XXI E, LTWWW ,WIN NER OF- DR cagwso TO BOYS AND PARENTS WHO RECEIVE THIS CATALOG... HIS catalog represents an effort on our part to place before you the essential facts about Tennessee Military Institute-embracing some facts about its history, its faculty, courses of study offered, general policies, stu- dent activities, cost of attendance, etc. Nevertheless, We feel that the catalog does not adequately represent the school. In fact, We doubt Whether the print and picture of a catalog can ever be made adequately to represent the life and power and spirit of a school of the type that really gets a grip on its pupils and leads them on to bigger and nobler accomplishments. There is something about such a school that must be seen and felt to be appreciated. We believe that Tennessee Military Insti- tute is such a school. Therefore, we urge you to COME TO SWEETWATER and see the school in its setting and amid its beautiful surroundings. If you have not made a trip through beautiful East Tennessee, it is a treat you ovve yourself apart from any interest in selecting a school. Towering mountains, gorgeous in summer ffrequently snow-capped in vvinterj, small rivers hurry- ing from the mountains, ever-changing panoramas of ridges and foothills, Well- kept farm premises, and Wonderful roads, all combine to make it a trip long to be remembered. Again We say COME TO SWEETWATER and see the school. Such a trip, enjoyable in itself, will do more to give you a clear idea concerning the school than reams of correspondence or hours of talk With school representatives. Thus you Will see the situation in Which our boys live, and Work, and play-a situation from Which, since 1874, many hun- dreds of young men have gone forth into Worth-vvhile achievement in many professions and lines of business.

I Private School Association ot the Central States Mid-South Association ot Private Schools Southern Association ot Private Schools SWEETWATER, TENNESSEE l i CONCERNING THE FACULTY.. Parents and boys considering the selecting of a school are interested in location and accessibility, quality of buildings and equipment, educational rec- ognition, and various other important considerations. However, the 'most im- portant consideration, the one that means the most in the life of the boy of this year and of the man he is to be a decade later, is the character and per- sonality of the men who, as teachers, will influence the forming of his char- acter. The passing of the electric current from one live wire to another turns the wheels of industry. Just so the contacts made in classroom and chapel, dormitory room and playground, between teachers and boys in the intimate life of the boarding school, pass on the 'fpowerv of the school into the life of the boy, arousing ambition, supplying objectives, inspiring needed decisions. Therefore, parents and boys should seek just as much information as pos- sible concerning the officers and teachers of the schools under consideration. At first thought this may seem a hard problem. It is not. It is easy to make contact in person, or by letter or telephone, with several other parents who have already had boys in a school. Specific questions concerning the char- acter of teachers, their reputation for fair dealing, whether they are interested in teaching or profits, etc., will reveal the personalities of the men composing the faculty of a particular school. Tennessee Military Institute invites just this sort of searching inquiry concerning its teachers. During the next two, three, or four years, some one teacher will become the outstanding inHuence in the life of the boy, just as a generation ago an- other teacher had the same sort of influence in the life of every successful father who may read these paragraphs. Talk with our old boys will reveal that one teacher here has been the great influence in the life of one boy, an- other in the life of another. Firm in this belief, we have spared no pains in bringing together the men who compose our teaching force. Retaining the continuous services of these men has entailed much expense above what would have been required through the process of employing inexperienced teachers, fresh out of college. This is not a one-man school. Rather is it a team of fifteen earnest teachers, teach- ing because they love teaching, and teaching in a boys' school because they love boys. Again we ask: Consider our teachers 5 note their periods of service in this school, make inquiry of former patrons and former pupils. A boy in Tennessee Military Institute will be influenced by the men of personality who will teach him. Find out in advance whether it is the kind of influence you Wish him to have. COLCDNEL C. R.

You are probably perplexed about the progress of your boy's education if you have taken the trouble to observe his procedure. Perhaps you have ob- served that he brings very few books home with him and that he makes small use of these in the Way of home study. When you recall some of your own ex- periences in the pursuit of knowledge, you doubtless wonder whether the teaching art has so improved in a quarter of a century as to remove all need of labor on the part of the pupil. Again, you have perhaps noticed the readiness with which he and his associates find it possible to cast aside all thought of lesson assignments when any one of his group suggests something more interesting to do. And how many of those more interesting things there are these days! A radio at his elbow C and the educational programs are not what he listens toj 5 the movie, parties g dances, planned and unplanned 3 auto trips-in fact, about every- thing to disturb orderly efforts in the line of study and hardly anything to counterbalance these disturbances. Even if it be argued that teaching methods have improved and that teach- ing now plays a more important part than formerly in education, what about work habits? Just how is your boy to acquire those habits of work, the qual- ity of persistence, of seeing the job through to completion, things that will determine the degree of his success in any line of business or profession? Is he getting this fundamental training in his present situation? Formerly this kind of training was possible in the home. In addition to schoolwork, there were duties and responsibilities for different members of the family, including the boy. But not so any more. Furthermore, no sin- gle family can remedy the situation. Calls from the outside will not permit it. Attempts toward the old-fashioned parental restrictions arouse antago- nisms and feelings of resentment. In Tennessee Military Institute we believe that uninterrupted work is just as important as it ever was in training boys for successful living. We believe in a sensible division of work and play, and we believe that the pe- riods set apart for wholesome play and recreation are enjoyed more when they follow periods devoted to work well done. Therefore, through the years, we have followed policies and developed traditions that exclude from the working periods of our boys the sort of dis- turbances that prevent work in the average home and community. These policies have become so well established in the school that our boys, without complaint or any feeling of resentment, accept with good humor restrictions such as few families would now have the courage to attempt. Thus we make possible not only a better order of schoolwork, but we accomplish what is of greater importance: we cultivate habits of individual effort and uninter- rupted Work. Page Ten If you, as a parent, have already given thought to these problems and have written for a number of school catalogs in your efforts to find a solution, perhaps you are now still more perplexed as to which way you should turn. Some catalogs appear to claim too many excellenciesg others seem not to make any particular claim and to outline no definite policy. Instead of attempting to tell you what we can do for your boy in Tennes- see Military Institute, we would much prefer to let some of our patrons tell you what we have accomplished with their boys. It is quite probable that we have had some boy from a section near you, where it will be easy to ar- range for a conference or an exchange of communications. Therefore, here is our request: First, write us about your boy. Give us just as many facts as possible about him and his work. Give us his age and grade, what work he seems to take to most readily, his habits, his athletic and social interests. It is almost certain that your description of him will call to our minds some boy of similar temperament and interests who has been with us. It is almost equally certain that the parents of that boy will be happy to tell you what they know of this school and what it accomplished with their boy. Second, accept our suggestion on an earlier page of making a trip of in- vestigation and inspection. We want you to know, in advance, everything possible about T. M. I. Your acceptance of these two suggestions will make this possible. If, however, it is not convenient for you to make the trip sug- gested, let us know that you would like to have a personal conference with a member of our faculty, and we will undertake to provide for it. We hope to have an early letter from you about your boy. Very sincerely, C. R. ENDSLEY, Snperfintendent. Page Eleven TO BOYS.. We invite you to a bit of self-analysis. Put a few questions to yourself. Are you making good on your present job-that of making a success of your schoolwork? If not, why? Is it not a fact that you could do a great deal better schoolwork than you have been doing? Is it not a fact that you would do a great deal better school- work if your companions would let you alone? When you decide to prepare your lessons better, are you not frequently called away by the ringing of the telephone, or the signal of an auto horn, inviting you to something more interesting than Algebra and Latin? Our intimate contacts with many hundreds of boys have convinced us that practically all boys want to make good, that even those who seem to be careless and reckless nurse a secret ambition to attain to something worth while. Yet it is a stern fact of life, known to every mature person, that it is the few who really succeed, while the many are swept along by the tides of the times, frolic away their proper period of preparation, are swallowed up in the common level of the untrained, and are forgotten. TENNESSEE MILITARY INSTITUTE helps boys to find their ambition and to make progress toward attaining it. Emphasis is kept on the important purposes for which a boy goes to school. He finds himself in a group striving for something worth while. He catches the spirit of the thing. He learns how to study and to get results. Yet life in such a school is not monotonous. The periods for athletics and recreation are just as carefully provided for as are the periods for study and recitation. Football, basket ball, baseball, and track furnish continuous in- terest through the year to all those interested in athletics. In addition to the varsity teams in these sports, there is keen competition for places on the re- serves, second, and third teams, also for places on the company teams in dif- ferent lines of sport. The rifle team always ranks among the best in the South. Letters are awarded the rifle team, just as in other sports. fSee page 65.3 Boxing, fencing, golf, tennis, and swimming add to the enjoyment of school life. Cross-country hikes appeal to many cadets. Boys in non-military schools cannot imagine the keen interest attaching to the preparation for and passing through the Honor School inspection period. To all these there is added the daily round of rollicking campus fun, un- planned, but entered into with the overflowing spirits characteristic of a healthy bunch of boys, happy in their surroundings. Puge Twelve SHOULD YOU The question now arises Whether you should seek admis- ENTER T. M. I.? sion to Tennessee Military Institute. The answer to that question depends on you. The chief qualification for a boy to enter T. M. I. is a genuine desire to make good. If you have that gen- uine desire to make good, We Want you. While we have the various interests and activities enumerated in the preceding paragraphs, they are intended to contribute their parts to the big purpose of the school-namely, developing the highest possible type of men of the boys that come to our school. WILL YOU DO If you enter Tennessee Military Institute or any other high- YOUR PART? grade military school, there Will be times when you are called on to do more Work than you Want to dog there Will be other times when liberties will be denied you which you think ought to be grantedg there will be many times when you will have to Ht in with a general require- ment instead of selecting a course which would appeal to you as an individual. Have you the real spirit of "teamWork'?" If so, we want you. The desire to make good and the willingness to pull together are the tests to apply to your- self before seeking admission.

HISTORICAL DATA TENNESSEE MILITARY INSTITUTE I904 TO PRESENT Succeeding SWEETWATER MILITARY COLLEGE Founded I874 Tennessee Military Institute has been built on the foundation laid for it in its predecessor, Sweetwater Military College. Sweetwater Military College was founded in 1874 by the Rev. John Lynn Bachman, one of the outstanding great men of the South. Dr. Bachman's purpose in founding the school was to provide a place where young men could have good educational advantages under safe and wholesome infiuences. Dr. Bachman continued as the active head of the school for twenty-four years, establishing its policies, fixing its standards of work and government, and influencing the thought, purposes, and ideals of the institution. The administrative officers in charge from 1902 to 1915 changed the name to Tennessee Military Institute and inaugurated policies which brought the school into nation-wide recognition. By 1909 the school had completely outgrown its buildings. Consequently a large tract of land was purchased on the "Hill," just outside the corporate limits of Sweetwater. All buildings now used have been erected on this new campus since that date. In the early days of the school, all military drill was under some employed teacher in the faculty, just as is now the case in the rather large number of semi-military schools. In 1911 the first army oflicer was detailed by the Gov- ernment as instructor in military science in T. M. I. Since that time, all mil- itary work here has been directed by army officers. For further informa- tion about the military, see page 59. In 1919 the administrative officers now in charge became connected with the school. Since that date, a remarkably steady faculty organization has been maintained, teacher changes during the period being less than ten per cent annually. Thus there has been developed here an order of teamwork such as can be found in very few preparatory schools and such as cannot be had in any school that is continually changing ofiicers and teachers. This ac- counts for the higher standards of scholastic work and the greater steadi- ness in governmental policies that have distinguished this school. Page Fifteen SCOPE OF WORK OFFERED... COLLEGE Dating from the adoption of the present name of the school PREPARATORY in 1904, the primary objective has been the adequate prepara- tion of boys for successful work in the better colleges and technical schools. It is constantly borne in mind that adequate preparation for college comprises thorough teaching on the part of teachers, the acquiring of right habits of study on the part of students, and, still more important, the cultivation in the pupil of the fundamentals of sound character. The preparatory school course is usually thought of as a four-year course comprising the ninth to twelfth grades, inclusive. Considering our college- preparation work our chief function, and keeping the emphasis in the school in that direction, it has been natural that most of our pupils represent this group. WORK FOR Courses below high school are limited to work corresponding YOUNGER BOYS to the Seventh and Eighth Grades in the public schools. Class sections are small and very thorough instruction with close personal attention is given. PREPARATORY Since 1904, elementary courses in Bookkeeping, Com- COMMERCIAL COURSE mercial Law, Commercial Arithmetic, Commercial Ge- ography, Typewriting, etc., have been provided for pupils of high school grade who did not contemplate entering college. We con- sider this a permanent department. For outlines of course, see page 35. SCHOOL OF ACCOUNTING AND In 1930, to take care of demands arising from BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION our own graduates and those coming from other schools, we started our School of Accounting and Business Administration, comprising courses covering two years of inten- sive business training of the Junior College level. Those interested should examine the courses outlined on page 35 of this catalog and should also write for our special pamphlet describing courses offered. SPECIAL POST- Besides the advanced courses in business training re- GRADUATE COURSE ferred to above, we have likewise found it desirable for . a good many years to provide advanced work in English, Mathematics, Languages, and Science for pupils who desire to spend one additional year after completing the regular four-year course here or in pub- lic high school. The brilliant success in college of those availing themselves of this additional training is the best proof of its value. It is a further fact that many boys are now completing the high-school course at an age when they are really too young and immature to make their immediate entrance to college advisable. In recent years we are having an increasing number of pupils who enroll for this work. For further discussion, see page 45. Page Sixieen WORK ADAPTED TO THE INDIVIDUAL PUPIL Each boy entering Tennessee Military Institute represents a unit of in- dividual interest and potentiality, and is, therefore, due all the individual de- velopment that can be given him. Hence we undertake to treat boys as indi- viduals, to study their needs, and to assist them in their attempts at proper progress. However, for general classification purposes, boys fall into two rather distinct classes, and these classes are usually distinguishable by the end of the Sophomore year, or tenth grade. The first class is composed of those hav- ing the mental keenness and intellectual interest to qualify them to complete the fairly exacting requirements of thorough college entrance preparation and thereafter to continue successfully with work in standard colleges or techni- cal schools. The second class is composed of those who have abundant physical energy and mental alertness, but who lack the native interest in textbooks of ordi- nary academic content. We have found that boys of this type frequently re- spond with an immediate interest in courses dealing with matters of busi- ness interest and that they develop into good business men. The logical inference from the foregoing is that it is just as much the duty of parents and teachers to guide boys of the second class into prepara- tion for business as it is their duty to encourage those of the first class to enter college or technical school and prepare for a profession. As far as is possible, we keep all pupils in the same lines of instruction during the first two years to enable us to discover their special aptitudes before allowing spe- cialization. After that, we concentrate our energies on the best possible col- lege entrance preparation for those going to college, while allowing those show- ing other lines of aptitude to undertake courses more in line with their tastes. For further discussion of this question, see page 47. CHARACTER OF STUDENT BODY Few, if any, considerations in the selection of a school are more impor- tant than that of the kind of boys attracted to it, and the reputation of these boys for good conduct during their period of school attendance. It is our belief that inquiry from those who know T. M. I. both locally and throughout the large area served by it will bring convincing testimony, first, that it draws boys of much better than average character and general promise, and, sec- ond, that the atmosphere and influences of the school and community on boys enrolled result in a record, year after year, of superior student conduct.

Chapel exercises are held here each morning, and lectures by visiting speakers. ,uf ,pu-v-H l l C llss alll . ,Q.. THE BATTALION ASSEMBLED AFTER SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR CHURCH All cadets are required to attend the Sunday- Pizge Eighteen morning church services. There are good reasons for this. In the first place, T. M. I. is a school of well-deiined policies and traditions developed through the continuous super- vision of the same administrative officers. It is known to be a school of excel- lent government and orderliness. Quite naturally, such a school makes its appeal to parents of similar ideals and to homes where orderliness, regard for parental wishes, and respect for parental authority prevail. As a rule, such homes are homes of culture and refinement. Boys with such family back- ground are better material for a school to work on, and from them there em- anate better influences on their associates in the intimate life of the boarding school. An unusually high per cent of our boys come from these better homes and display evidences of better home training. It is a fact well known throughout the area served by the school that un- seemly conduct will not be tolerated, and for this reason boys of the more rowdy sort simply do not seek admission here. Our boys are live, healthy, red-blooded young fellows, but not of the sort that think wild parties and ob- jectionable conduct essential to a goo-d time. The new cadet entering the school comes in contact with old boys already proud of its fine traditions and loyal to its higher interests. This appeals to his better impulses and arouses or confirms in him a purpose to make for himself a good student record in the school and school community. This sort of process has gone on through the years and still continues in T. M. I. It has become a mighty power for good influences in the life of the school as a whole and in the individual lives of boys enrolled. MORAL AND RELIGIOUS INFLUENCES While Tennessee Military Institute is not a church school in the sense that it is supported by funds from any particular denomination, the importance of religion in the life of the individual and the claims of the churches on the trained leadership developed in the schools are held before our cadets con- stantly. Hence, it is our constant effort to create in the school a wholesome and vital religious atmosphere-an atmosphere that will inspire and elevate the life and purposes of our cadets as distinguished from the thin veneer of professional religion and pretense which disgust boys with things religious. DAILY CHAPEL We consider our daily chapel exercises conducted by members EXERCISES of the Faculty and visiting speakers a very important part of our daily schedule. True enough that the boys learn by heart some of the standing and oft-repeated messages of some of the ofiicers of the school, but some of those "learned-by-heart" messages will be recalled months or years afterwards and guide the life of some boy during a moral storm period. Therefore, our day's work will continue to be started with a few minutes reminder of "Whose we are and Whom we serve." SUNDAY-SCHOOL For sixteen years the voluntary attendance in Sunday ATTENDANCE School has been remarkable. Special classes for the T. M. I. boys have been provided for in all the Sunday Schools of the town, the classes being organized with a full quota of class officers, Page Nineteen committees, etc. A friendly and helpful rivalry has grown up among these classes, with the result that every new boy in school receives several invita- tions to become a member of one of the classes and to attend regularly. They are taught by unselfish, consecrated teachers whose influence on the lives of the boys in the school can hardly be overestimated. CHURCH Attendance at the Sunday-morning church services in Sweet- ATTENDANCE water is required of all cadets. The local church pastors are all comparatively young men, and they take a very genuine in- terest in T. M. I. boys. Sweetwater is a churchgoing town, and the churches are unusually strong organizations for a town of such size. THREEFOLD GROWTH STIMULATED Nine mature men out of every ten realize that they are now what they had begun in a very definite way to be when they were nineteen years of age. There is a very small minority into whose lives some great change has come at a later period by which the present character is distinctly separated from that of the boy, but this is the exception and not the rule. Believing that a boy in his teens is getting the physical growth which determines his later physical fitness for whatever demands may be made on him, that he is getting the mental training which will later determine his preparedness or unpreparedness for his lifework, that he is getting the moral and spiritual development which will determine what his character will be. we undertake in a positive and definite way to stimulate development along these three fundamental lines throughout a boy's attendance in T. M. I. PHYSICAL On his arrival, each cadet is given a careful examination by GROWTH the school physician and an accurate record is made of his STIMULATED condition. Where no marked variation is found from the nor- mal for boys of his age, the regular drills and calisthenics un- der our military instructors, coupled with the various lines of athletics, are considered sufficient. Regular hours and systematic exercises and the mil- itary requirement of erect carriage will guarantee the proper growth where the boy is already normal. Where subnormal development of any of the parts of the body or weakness of any of the vital organs is found, proper exercise will be recommended and required for the correction of the defect. SUPERIOR Since it is the work of every school to try to cultivate men- INTELLECTUAL tal development, no single school may claim patent rights TRAINING on all the excellencies of method. This we do not do. It is a fact, however, that there is a wide difference between the re- sults sought and the methods used in the schools of the country. Tennessee Military Institute excels most of the schools of its type in its insistence on high academic standards and its provisions by which cadets are enabled to measure up to these higher requirements. The first, and perhaps the most important, of these provisions for the pupils' benefit is the high degree of ef- ficiency and capability of the teaching staff. Every teacher in the Faculty Page Twenty has been thoroughly trained for the particular line of work which he is teach- ing in T. M. I., and has demonstrated his ability by successful experience in the classroom. No inexperienced teachers are employed. This means much in arousing the boy to his best efforts. A second provision in the interest of better academic work is the regular study period. There is a definite prepa- ration period which the cadet must observe preceding the recitation periods. Then there are our special privilege lists, under which certain coveted privi- leges are open only to those attaining the requisite class standing. Almost any boy will put in his best efforts to place his name on the Privilege List, a copy of which is mailed to all patrons monthly. In addition to these provisions and incentives for higher scholarship standing, there are the firm, but considerate, requirements of each teacher and extra-hour special sessions to help up and spur on those who are behind the class average or are care- less in their preparations. We believe, therefore, that Tennessee Military In- stitute can justly claim superior results in stimulating mental growth. CHARACTER But more important than physical growth and more significant BUILDING than intellectual training is the character of the boy-that which will later be the character of the man. Athletic proportions of body and superior attainments intellectually do not, by themselves, procure respect and confidence. Many men of magnificent physique are bywords in their communities, and many master minds may be found in the penitentia- ries. Such men did not get the right start or point of view in their teens. From this it follows that character building is the first and highest work of the school. Noble impulses are present in every boy's soul. Inspiring the higher motives and inculcating correct conceptions on the fundamentals of truth and honesty go far toward character building. We strive earnestly and continuously to get our boys to recognize their own better selves and fix permanently in their lives the foundations of sound and clean manhood. The key word to our method of dealing with boys is frcmkness. We are open and straightforward in our treatment of the boy, and in nine cases out of ten we are able to secure a like attitude on his part. What we have to say to our boys in a body or as individuals is expressed in simple, direct language. We use no bluff or bluster. The average boy despises sham and hypocrisy, and is quick to detect any symptoms of such in ofiicer or teacher. Honesty and truth are part of the atmosphere and spirit of the in- stitution, and the new boy soon catches this spirit. Under this influence, there is no doubt but that many boys "come clean" and tell the truth in T. M. I. who previously have practiced deception. We believe, therefore, that T. M. I. is contributing in a very genuine and positive way to the building of trustworthy and honorable characters in the pupils enrolled with us.

The campus embraces one hundred acres of land, with the buildings and drill ground on the crest of a high hill, with such slopes in all directions as to furnish perfect natural drainage. Ample space is included for drill grounds, athletic fields, tennis courts, nine-hole golf course, etc. The soil is of a gravelly character, which drains rapidly after rains. The main building of Tennessee Military Institute is one of the most complete buildings in the nation for all phases of schoolwork. It contains under one roof space designed and equipped for every need and activ- ity of the school except outdoor military drill and athletics. This includes an assembly and study hall, 1001444 feet, classrooms, ofiices for all admin- istrative oflicers, mess hall, 100X50 feet, living quarters for cadets and apartments for teachers, commissary, storerooms for supplies, armory and storeroom for government equipment, indoor shooting gallery, laboratories and storeroom for chemical, physical, and biological apparatus and supplies, reading room, shower baths, toilets, etc. This building was designed when the school was moved to the new campus in 1909, and the diierent sections of it were built in 1909, 1912, 1917, and 1920. The school had been in operation for thirty-five years when the move to the new campus was made, hence, every need of a military school was foreseen and provided for in designing the new plant. It is our belief that there are very few school plants in America better adapted to the needs of a military school. More than half of our plant is less than twenty years old. The barracks sections of the building deserve special mention. Every cadet room opens on an outside concrete and steel porch, thus eliminating fire danger and avoiding corridor problems at one time. All cadet rooms are of the same dimensions and arrangement and equipped with the same furnishings. The entire barracks has both hot and cold water in every room. Our rooms are well ventilated, well heated, and furnished adequately for the convenience and comfort of our boys. ' GYMNASIUM The gymnasium, constructed during the session of 1918-19, is a structure 100 feet by 50 feet. The main floor has an excellent basket-ball court, dress- ing rooms, and supply room. A swimming pool, 70x30 feet, is in the base- ment of the gymnasium. NOTE: A new gymnasium is under construction during the summer of I937 and will be ready tor use at the opening of school in September. Page Twenty-Tbree N GCVERNMENT "A chain is no stronger than its' weakest link." Likewise a school is no better than its government. Scholarship in the Faculty and excellence of buildings and equipment are wasted in schools lacking in governmental con- trol. In such schools, pupils spend their energies on things other than the real purposes of the school. Most parents have witnessed the failure of some school under such conditions. Successful school government consists of sensible regulations carried out with firmness and fairness by teachers of personality. Much is heard these days about resentment of restraints by teen-age boys. This is probably true in schools of varying policies and in home life where one boy compares his restrictions with the liberties allowed to his friends by their parents. In Ten- nessee Military Institute government is characterized by uniformity, firm- ness, and fairness. Consequently, boys here recognize the fairness of the ofiicers in charge of government, and therefore accept in fine spirit the re- quirements made of them under the regulations of the school. Any school can impose prohibitory regulations, but not every school can succeed in having its prohibitions accepted in such spirit and good humor by its pupils as to accomplish the real purposes of school government. The suc- cess of Tennessee Military Institute along this line has served as the founda- tion on which to build high standards of scholastic attainment and to main- tain uplifting and inspiring influences on boys enrolled. IDLE-MIND Somebody has said, in language more expressive than elegant, DANGERS that "the idle mind is the devil's workshop." This is probably true to a greater or less degree in all stages of life, but is cer- tainly true of the period of boyhood. The busy boy never causes trouble. On the other hand, when there are idle hours of the day or night during which the boy is left to his own inventions and devices, the live youngster will invent and devise and also execute. Unfortunately, many of his schemes for whil- ing away the hours are mischievous and dangerous. KEEP THE Hence, our first eiort toward orderliness and good government BOY BUSY in Tennessee Military Institute is directed to keeping the boy busy. We undertake to prevent the "idle-hour" offenses against school government by removing the idle hours. The ounce of prevention here is worth the pound of cure. This must not be understood to mean that life in T. M. I. is one continual grind of drill or study, but it does mean that there is such definite provision for the use of every hour in the boy's daily sched- ule that he does not have long periods to himself in which to brood, or be- come discontented and unhappy, or to plan and carry out trouble-producing schemes. For the exact hours of the daily schedule, see page 32. When a boy has met his military and academic requirements for the day and used the night study period in preparation for the following day, he is ready for bed. Page fI'1vcnly-Four Believing that successful government depends on respect for law rather than multitude of laws, We make such simple, common-sense regulations as are sufficient to safeguard the best interests of the individual pupil and the school as a Whole, and such as the pupil's best judgment is bound to approve. By lirmly, constantly, and consistently enforcing these regulations, govern- ment becomes an easy and not unpleasant part of directing the school. Having read the foregoing, prospective pupils and patrons may readily infer our interpretation and enforcement of the following regulations: REGULATIONS 1. NIGHT ABSENCE-Absence from premises after retreat is prohibited. 2. LEAVING TOWN-Leaving the vicinity of Sweetwater without permission is heavily penalized. - 3. DRINKING-Any cadet found guilty of drinking intoxicants, or of having such in his quarters or possession, will be immediately dismissed. 4. GAMBLING-Gambling in any form prohibited. 5. HAZING-Hazing in any form forbidden. Penalty: Immediate dismissal. 6. PROFANITY, OBSCENITY-Profane and obscene language at any time or place forbidden. 7. CIGARETTES-Cigarette smoking positively forbidden. 8. FRATERNITIES-Fraternities or secret societies under any name are for- bidden. Penalty for organizing or promoting such an organization in T. M. I. is dismissal. 9. CHEATING AND LYING-Cheating on recitation or examination, lying to any officer, or other conduct unbecoming to a gentleman Will be se- verely penalized. Penalties for tardiness, absence from required formation, inattention in ranks, etc., vary according to announcements during the year. We reserve the right to increase or decrease the penalties in whatever manner may be necessary to reduce such offenses to a minimum. LEAVE OF ABSENCE Penalties for absence from the school Without permission have been men- tioned in Regulation 2. With these to deter the indiscretions of the boy, it Would seem to be unnecessary to say more as to absence from the school. However, our experience proves the contrary. We have far more trouble With parents in their unvvise requests for leave of absence than We do with cadets being absent Without permission. This experience Warrants a SPE- CIAL APPEAL FOR CO-OPERATION on the matter of keeping the boy at Page Twcnly-Fire his place. Furloughs will be granted to all cadets to visit their homes or friends during the Christmas holidays unless provision has been made for them to remain in the school during this period. We urge parents particu- larly not to request furloughs for their sons at any other time except in cases of necessity or emergency. In such case We insist that the request be sent di- rect to the Superintendent. Any Wise and reasonable request will be granted, but we reserve the right to withhold permission where no sickness or other emergency is involved. No furloughs will be granted except to visit home or near relatives. Under no circumstances will permission be granted for week- end visits to near-by cities. From every angle furloughs are dangerous. Every class missed means a lowering of class standing of the cadet. In addition, trips home or else- Where do not satisfy the boy, but rather tend to arouse the desire for other trips. Other cadets are disturbed thereby, and seek similar permits from their parents. Not infrequently some excess on furlough, or overstaying the time limit, results in dismissal. Since we emphatically disapprove of leaves of absence except in cases of serious sickness in the home or some similar emergency, we place all responsibility for the furlough on the parent. No cadet is permitted to withdraw from the Institute a few days prior to the Christmas vacation or the close of the spring term. SPENDING MCNEY Parents are urged to co-operate with the management in holding down the useless spending of money by cadets. A cadet in T. M. I. needs very little money. His needs in the line of clothing, books, and other necessary sup- plies are attended to through our commissary or through orders signed by the Quartermaster, which are charged to the HQ. M." account. For other spend- ing, an allowance of a dollar a week is suflicient. We suggest a deposit for this purpose, from which one dollar is issued to each cadet every Monday morning. Signed vouchers are required of the cadet, and these will later be sent to the parent on request. The sending of money direct to cadets is unwise and dangerous to the individual cadet and to his associates.

C., and New Orleans, on the main line of the Southern Railway, 41 miles south of Knoxville. It is also on the famous Lee Highway, running from Washington through the beautiful scenic section of Virginia and East Tennessee., This link of high- way across East Tennessee is also the main line of motor travel from Ohio and the Great Lakes region to Florida. Twelve commodious motor busses and eight passenger trains daily afford convenient travel for those not traveling in their own automobiles. Sweetwater is a progressive little town of 3,000 population. Its citizens are enterprising and maintain a clean municipal government. It now has six and a half miles of streets paved with concrete. The water supply is pure and the health record of the town remarkably good. The elevation above sea level is more than 1,000 feet. Consequently malaria is practically un- known, except for the occasional case brought here by someone coming from the lowland country. CLIMATE In the selection of a military school, climate is a very important consideration. Much of the physical improvement obtained is due to regular outdoor exercises, athletics, and military drills. Tennessee Mili- tary Institute is very fortunately situated in this respect. Our climate is suf- ficiently mild to permit outdoor drill practically every day through the win- ter season. Boys from the far South find our climate invigorating, while boys from the latitude north of the Ohio River are delighted with the mild winter seasons here. Parents visiting their sons during the school session fre- quently report several inches of snow at their homes and find their boys drill- ing in the open without coats. HEALTH As might be expected from the conditions described above, the health record of cadets in Tennessee Military Institute is not sur- passed by that of any other school in the land. Our drill grounds and ath- letic fields are in good condition for use practically without interruption throughout the year. Pure air and regularity of outdoor exercise ward off sickness. The increase in weight for the entire school averages about 15 pounds per boy during the session, while there are many individual cases of more than 30 pounds increase in weight every year. For further discussion of health and physical improvement, see pages 20, 66, and 67. Page Thirty-One CALENDAR 1937 1938 September 7, Tuesday 18:00 P.M.J . .. .....

Page Thirty-Two was ACADEMIC ' There are more than five times as many high schools in the United States as there were twenty years ago, While the number of colleges has not been in- creased perceptibly. As a result, the colleges have made their freshman re- quirements more exacting as a means of excluding or eliminating those not qualified to do acceptable college Work. This results in dropping from college rolls of many thousands of freshmen each January and February, which means, in most cases, the ending of college training and opportunities for those dropped. This is an incalculable loss to the individual and to the nation. Perceiving this situation in 1920, the officers of Tennessee Military Insti- tute undertook to elevate the standards of instruction and Work in this school so as to hold to a minimum the number of its graduates not qualified to meas- ure up to the standards of the highest class of colleges and technical schools. As a result, the graduates of T. M. I. are admitted Without examination to all colleges, universities, and technical schools which are members of the larger national associations, Northern as Well as Southern. In addition, our grad- uates are accepted on our certificate in such schools as Cornell and University of Pennsylvania, in the Eastg University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin, and Ohio State, in the North, and University of Montana and Leland Stan- ford, in the West. No graduate recommended by the school has been refused admission on our certificate in the last fifteen years. CLASSIFICATION AND SELECTION OF COURSE OF STUDY Each cadet is classified individually, and every efort is made to select the course best suited to the capabilities of the boy and such as will prepare him for the later Work that he may have in mind. We seek by personal con- ferences to find out as much as possible the cadet's intention as to later courses and to give the wisest advice possible as to work to be done while with us. In the cases of all boys preparing for entrance to standard colleges, We insist on the taking of sufiicient Latin or other foreign languages to meet the require- ments in these subjects. For those preparing for admission to technical schools, a combination of Science and Modern Language, together with the required Work in English and Mathematics, is recommended.

College Preparatory ENGLISH There is a growing complaint that in high schools too little attention is given to the study of English. Whether this complaint is justifiable or not, it is, nevertheless, true that the average high-school pupil is sadly deficient in the use of his own language. It too frequently happens that students be- ginning the study of a foreign language must be taught the elements of their own language before any progress can be made. For this reason we insist in this institution that the study of English be made the most important sub- ject, for we realize that the ability to speak and write English correctly, clearly, and gracefully is the best educational asset a young man can possess. The course of study follows closely the recommendation of the Committee on College Entrance Requirements. lt embraces the study of grammar, com- position, and rhetoric, and the reading and the studying of a number of clas- sics selected from the College Entrance Requirements. Thoroughness is re- quired throughout the whole course. This we seek to gain by constant drill work in grammar and composition and by frequent exercises in punctuation, paragraphing, use of words, and letter writing. ln the more advanced classes in rhetoric, themes in narration, description, and argumentation, together with story writing, are required. The ability to read accurately and intelligently is sought by the study of the classics. In connection with this course, the pupil is required to read aloud and to commit to memory selections of prose and poetry from standard authors. The study of biography is emphasized in order to acquaint the stu- dent with the important facts in the lives of the authors and to enable him to estimate their places in literary history. FIRST YEAR: Advanced Grammar fthoroughly taughtb and literature selected from the following: K7:fI7fLCL1J1ICilI,Sl1OYll stories, orations, short lyric and narrative poems, The Lady of the Lake, and As You Like It. SECOND YEAR: Composition, with much written work, drill on sentence and paragraph structure: avoiding common errors, etc. Classics to be selected from the following: A collection of short stories, ballads, lyric poems, The House of the Seven Gables, Julius Caesar, The Rirme of the Ancieizt Mariner, and The Iriylls of the King. THIRD YEAR: Composition and Rhetoric: the principles of grammar and their applica- tion in themes. History of American Literature, with special emphasis on Poe, Hawthorne, Mark Twain, Harte, Emerson, Bryant, Whittier, and the more mod- ern poets. FOURTH YEAR: Woolley's Hamlbook of Composition. Many themes in the four types of composition. The work of the Senior year is devoted to an intensive study of English Literature. We use a thorough chronological anthology, covering the subject from the prehistoric to the contemporary, with special emphasis on Shakespeare, Milton, Pope, Johnson, Addison, Steele, Goldsmith, Burns, Byron, Keats, Wordsworth, Carlyle, Macaulay, Tennyson, Browning, Kipling, and Masefield. fParallel Reading Required in All Coursesl Page Thirty-Nine In-I" Page Forly iff? iw: Above-FRESHMAN CLASS Below-SUBFRESHMAN GROUP MATHEMATICS Mental growth finds its beginning in the power to concentrate and to rea- son. A man's ability is determined by the extent to which these powers have been developed. The relation of the study of Mathematics to this growth and the mental discipline derived from a mastery of its principles justify the importance which we give this subject in our course. Every cadet in Tennessee Military Institute is required to study Math- ematics, and four full years' work is required for graduation. The course outlined below may seem rather difficult, and it is. We prefer, however, to make it heavy rather than have our students numbered among those who fail to make good in college. Our requirements are justified by the high rank they enable our graduates to take in more advanced schools. FIRST YEAR Since so few boys actually master Arithmetic in the grades, we have found it neces- sary to require all freshmen to study Arithmetic either for the entire first year or until they demonstrate by classwork and examinations that they understand the subject. A course in Elementary Algebra is carried throughout the year. SECOND YEAR p After a brief review of the fundamental operations in Algebra, the work in the sec- ond year is resumed at factoring, and a thorough course is given to theory of exponents. The solution of numerous statement problems is required throughout the second and third years. ' THIRD YEAR In the third year the course in Algebra begins with theory of exponents, and the text is completed during the year. Every Junior is required to take this course unless exemption is secured by passing a satisfactory examination embracing the subjects treated. A thorough course in Plane Geometry is also given in this year, both Algebra and Geometry classes reciting five times per week. f FOURTH YEAR 95 In the fourth year Solid Geometry is required the first term. During the second term those members of the Senior Class who have maintained an average grade of 852, or above in Algebra III in Tennessee Military Institute will be allowed the option of tak- ing Plane Trigonometry or reviewing the entire subject of Algebra 5 all other Seniors will be required to study College Algebra the second term. HISTORY We believe that no man can consider himself broadly educated without some acquaintance with the record of human achievement in the generations that have preceded him, no matter how well informed he may be concerning contemporary developments. We try, therefore, to arrange the course of study of each cadet so that he may get a good course in Ancient History, Modern European History, and American History. Ancient History is studied in our first year, and the text used comprises a survey of the progress of the race from early Egyptian and Babylonian beginnings to the period of Charle- magne. Modern European History is studied in the second year. The text used treats of the more important movements and events in European His- tory from Charlemagne down through the World War, including the Ver- sailles Peace Conference. On account of the heavy mathematics requirements in our third year, no history course is ofered for Juniors. The study is re- Page Forty-One I I I I Puge l"orly-'I'u'o V .. M ww... A.. . . AlooveMACCOUNTING AND BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION GROUP BeIow-PREPARATORY COMMERCIAL GROUP sumed by Seniors, with an advanced text on American History, followed by a text on the development of political parties in the United States and the fun- damentals of civil government. MODERN LANGUAGES Courses are offered in French, Spanish, and German. Our teachers of these subjects are masters in their respective lines, and are able to make the language work full of interest to the pupils. The primary object of this de- partment is to give such instruction as will enable a student to read easily and intelligently the authors studied and to enjoy the literature of these lan- guages. The courses in French, German, and Spanish are designed to cover fully all college-entrance requirements. The work of the first course includes a careful study of pronunciation, grammar drill, abundant exercises in com- position, spellingg dictation, and reading of about 250 pages of prose, and short poems. The second course includes more advanced and detail study of syntax and construction, irregular verbs, much work in composition and conversa- tion, drill in phonetics, written reports in the language, and the reading of at least 400 pages of modern prose, including in French such authors as Hugo, De Maupassant, Dumas, and Daudetg in Spanish, Alarcon, Benaventes, Valera, in German, Benedix, Bernhardt, Storm, Wildenbruch, Frommel, etc. The courses are intended to give the student not only a theoretical knowledge and reading ability, but also a practical grasp of everyday French, German, and Spanish. In Spanish commercial correspondence is emphasizedg in German and French the cultural and scientific phases are emphasized. SCIENCE The work in Science includes Biology, Physics, and Chemistry. A standard text in each subject is pursued throughout the year. The teacher questions the pupils on the subject matter assigned each day, and dem- onstrates the principles contained therein by lecture-table demonstrations. Laboratory work is carried forward in connection with all Science courses. Students in the Biology, Physics, and Chemistry classes are required to do individual laboratory work, keep accurate notebooks, and record all ex- periments. Original exercises and problems are assigned to bring out more clearly the principles involved and to arouse interest in the vocational aspects of the subjects. LATIN We urge all our pupils whose ages and circumstances will permit to get a thorough course in Latin. We offer four years' work in this subject, embracing Beginner's Latin, Caesar, Cicero, Virgil, or Ovid. Systematic grammar and composition work is carried in connection with Caesar and Cic- ero, while a study of Greek and Roman myths accompanies the Virgil work.

Postgraduate Courses As indicated in connection with the outline of postgraduate courses on page 34, the purpose of this work in Tennessee Military Institute is better preparation of high school graduates for more successful college work than would be possible for them without such a year of special preparation. In most cases, it is not advisable or desirable that this work should take the place of college work, but rather that it serve as a foundation on which students may be able to rank high in college work. Only in exceptional cases would we request a college to grant advanced standing on the basis of our Fifth Year work in Tennessee Military Institute. ENGLISH V ICOLLEGE ENGLISHI The object of this course is to accustom the pupil to the methods fol- lowed in early college courses in English. School customs and college entrance requirements have been such for many years that a great deal of time and work have to be devoted to the study of literature in the third and fourth years of the high school course in English. While this may be desirable for the large number of pupils whose education ends with high school, for those who are to continue the study of English in college a more thorough mastery of the use of English is essential. Instead of a smattering acquaintance with lighter literature, popular in many schools, we undertake to cultivate a mastery of fundamentals in grammar and composition and later to develop ease and grace in various types of writing required of first and second year college students. MATHEMATICS V Practically every survey dealing with failures in college work reveals that the highest percentage occurs in the departments of Mathematics. This is largely due to the fact that other courses have been allowed to crowd the study of Algebra into too short and too early a period in the public high schools. In most schools, Algebra is completed in the second year, and frequently by the middle of the second year. For high school graduates entering Tennessee Military Institute, we prescribe a course in Advanced Algebra, continuing either for a half year or whole year, depending on the previous work. Solid Geometry and Plane Trigonometry are likewise oiered. Many of our post- graduate pupils carry two mathematics courses throughout the year. Mastery of these courses in Advanced Algebra, Solid Geometry, and Trigonometry provides an excellent foundation for successful work in college and engineering schools. CHEMISTRY II For pupils who have completed a first year course in Chemistry, we offer the course in Chemistry II. A large share of the pupils' time is devoted to laboratory work in both qualitative and quantitative analysis. Page Forty-Five 14 ' THE "STAR-SPANGLED BANNER" ' ' IN THE BREEZE METALLU RGY Our school is situated in a section rich in mineral deposits of many varieties. In recent years, many hundreds of samples have been brought to our laboratories for analysis from the area within seventy-five miles of the school. This has made it possible to introduce our more advanced pupils to the methods followed in testing ores and extracting valuable minerals. IV. Preparatory Commercial Courses Discussion on pages sixteen and seventeen of this catalog explains our reasons for oiering training in fundamental business subjects. Not all boys profit from college attendance. For boys who will not attend college, we consider adequate training for business important and desirable. This work is no experiment with us, as it has been carried on here for more than twenty years. With the business training they have received in T. M. I., hundreds of young men have become successful in business, many of them connected with nationally known concerns. In general, we do not start pupils on business courses until they have completed our First Year, or Ninth Grade, course fLatin usually omittedj. Beginning with the Sophomore Year, business courses are offered sufficient to use all the time of pupils not necessary in the required studies in English and Algebra. English is required throughout the course, but no regular Mathe- matics courses are required of Commercial pupils above the sophomore year. As will be seen from the brief outline of courses on page 35, the several business courses offered are of a very practical sort and the pupil readily begins to see the relation of such courses to lines of business with which he is acquainted or which he desires to take up. In either case, his interest is natural and better scholastic accomplishments almost immediately result. Since it frequently happens that boys do not reach a decision as to choice between business and professional life, or between preparation for business or for college by the beginning of the tenth grade, we have planned the course of study in this department so as to permit entering upon it in either the tenth, eleventh, or twelfth grades. In cases where the decision is made late in the high school course, we urge the student to combine the later courses of our Preparatory Commercial Course with the foundation courses of our Advanced Business Administration Course so as to guarantee a thorough mastery of the fundamentals of business. In fact, quite a good many of the graduates of our Preparatory Commercial Course of their own volition choose to return for one or more years in our Advanced Business Course fof Junior College gradel. Puge Forty-Se neu V. Advanced Courses in Business Administration I While many graduates of our Preparatory Commercial Course have suc- ceeded in business, it is our belief that these same men would have attained greater success, would have been promoted more rapidly and would have re- ceived larger compensations for their work if they had devoted more time to preparation for their special lines of work. Consequently, in 1930 we start- ed our work in Advanced Business Administration. At the outset, we required a high school diploma for admission to these courses. After two years we changed this plan to permit the admission to these courses of pupils of good ability who had completed three years of high school work. Our Advanced Business work divides itself into two main divisions, in one of which the emphasis is kept on Accounting and Finance, while in the other the purpose is to prepare the pupil for general business administration and the courses therefore emphasize Selling and Sales Management, Adver- tising, Banking and Credit, Business Law, etc. The outline of these courses of study will be found on page 35. These courses are designed for those of our own graduates and the graduates of public high schools who desire a thorough preparation for the requirements of business but who prefer to secure this without having to put in the four years required in the Schools of Commerce of state and other uni- versities. .Our course in Accounting is intended to prepare graduates for work as accountants and auditors. It is well known that this type of work brings auditors and accountants in touch with promising business opportunities into which many go from their work as accountants. Thus their training in school leads to employment that makes them self-sustaining and this in turn leads into more lucrative business connections. The training in Advertising, Salesmanship and general Business Admin- istration is designed for those to whom the attention to accuracy and detail essential in an accountant would be irksome but who want to connect them- selves with the promotive side of business. During the first half-year of our course, Accounting is required of all advanced business students. During this period, it is possible to determine into which of the two major divisions of training each pupil shoul-d go for his further work.

POINT Appointed by congressman ot the Fourth Indiana Dis- trict as Principal tor admis- sion to West Point on July I, 1937. PREPARATION FOR WEST POINT AND ANNAPOLIS A few schools have advertised a specialty of coaching applicants for ad- mission to the two government academies. We have never considered this either desirable or wise. Special coaching may serve the purpose of enabling a young man to pass an examination, but we seriously question whether it cul- tivates in him the capacity for regular work of high grade and the habit of doing his own work independently, day in and day out, which are necessary to successful work in any school after entering. We consider our regular course of study in Tennessee Military Institute ample preparation for the work in either of the government academies. The success of our graduates in passing entrance requirements and in being able to continue after admission is the basis of our confidence. In 1916, Congress passed a law establishing the classification of Honor Military Schools and provided for twenty scholarships at West Point to be allotted by the Adjutant General to Honor Graduates of these schools. Ten- nessee Military Institute has made several appointments since 1922. In 1935, the law was amended to increase the number of scholarships from twenty to forty, which will, of course, increase the frequency with which Honor Military Schools will be permitted to appoint their Honor Graduates directly to West Point. Tennessee Military Institute was allotted one of these appointments in 1935, 1936, and 1937. Note references to appointees on pre- ceding page. Under present regulations, an Honor Graduate of an Honor Military School is admitted to West Point on passing a satisfactory physical examina- tion, provided such candidate ranks in the upper ten per cent of his class. Other applicants must stand comprehensive examinations in English and Mathematics. In February, 1936, Congress passed another law providing for similar scholarships, eighty in number, at Annapolis, which scholarships are avail- able for Honor Graduates of Honor Military Schools and Honor Stu-dents in the six prominent colleges maintaining Naval Reserve Oflicer Training Units. Under this law, each Honor Military School is permitted each year to name three high ranking members of its senior class to stand the Annapolis en- trance examinations. The twenty young men ranking highest on this ex- amination will be awarded Annapolis appointments. Young men who are interested in attending West Point or Annapolis and who are unable to secure congressional appointments may thus win for them- selves an appointment by attending an Honor Military School and working hard enough to rank high in their classes. For instance, both in 1936 and 1937, we had the privilege of naming three appointees Cprincipal and first and second alternatesj to West Point and three for the competitive examinations for Annapolis. Since three or four of our high ranking seniors had other plans, we did not have six men eligible under the requirements in either year.

I., much desired by the cadets and not harm- ful in themselves, are granted on a basis of academic standing and deport- ment record. These lists are prepared at the end of each month and posted, and also a copy is mailed to each patron of the school. FIRST PRIVILEGE LIST: The First Privilege List includes all cadets whose average for the month is 90 per cent or above and who have not fallen below 80 per cent in any subject and have not received more than 3 de- merits for the month. SECOND PRIVILEGE LIST: The Second Privilege List carries the names of all cadets whose lowest grade is not below 80 per cent, but average below 90 per cent, and who have not received more than 4 demerits for the month. The privileges allowed under each of these lists are announced at the opening of school. . MEDALS CLASS LEADERSHIP MEDALS: Gold "T'sl' are awarded as medals to the cadets maintaining the highest general average for the year in each of the eight classification groups. MILITARY EFFICIENCY MEDALS: Medals are awarded to the cadet commis- sioned oflicer, non-commissioned oflicer, and private who are adjudged to be the most eflicient in their respective grades in the performance of their military duties throughout the year. REPORTS Reports indicating the character of academic work and deportment record are issued every four weeks. Our grading system is very clear and the parent is able to keep in touch with the progress of the boy by noting these reports carefully. A grade of 70 per cent is required as the passing mark. Our teachers grade very closely each dayis work and there is no padding of grades. An average grade in T. M. I. is between 80 and 85 per cent. In addition to grades by subjects, the report shows the general average in all subjects, the number of boys in each class, and the rank of each boy in that class. This policy has been followed for many years. The day in each month when class rankings are read out is looked forward to with eager interest.

Page Fifty-Seven GENERAL WEWf OF OUR BACK YARD MILITARY Tennessee Military Institute is military in plan, method, and organization for the sake of the permanent values accruing to boys through the military sys- tem. It is the purpose of this school to train for intelligent and successful citi- zenship. A few boys each year may pass on to West Point or Annapolis, and thence become army or navy officers, but an overwhelming majority of our cadets look forward to business or professional life. Hence, the military sys- tem would not be justified if it were of value only to those cadets who are pre- paring for a military career. The reasons for our belief in the value of mil- itary school training for American boys, irrespective of the later work they contemplate, are set forth in the paragraph which follows. WHY MILITARY? We believe that most boys need the lessons in physical fitness resulting from military training-erect carriage of the body, firm, rhythmic step 5 sys- tematic, everyday, outdoor exercise as a means of keeping physically fit, and that they need the character-forming lessons derived from living, working, and playing according to an orderly schedule. In a good military school the boy wakes, dresses, eats, works, plays, studies, sleeps, in accordance with a regular schedule. He learns how to dress neatly without being a dude, how to be dignified in bearing without being stiff, how to act his part as a leader of men without appearing pompous and presumptuous. Orderliness, regular- ity, and systematic procedure are part of the atmosphere in which he lives. To these may be added respect for superiors, respect for government, and the spirit of co-operation and teamwork so much needed in the complex civic life of the present generation. Some one has said that a man's character is the sum total of his habits. Many courses of thought and action become habitual in a military school, and these are desirable habits to build into character. RESERVE OFFICERS TRAINING CORPS IR.O.T.C.I Since 1918, Tennessee Military Institute has had a unit of the Reserve Officers Training Corps with one commissioned oHicer and one or more non- commissioned assistants detailed from the War Department for instruction in Military Science. Cadets satisfactorily completing the full course of instruc- tion either receive commissions as second lieutenants in the Reserve Corps or certificates of eligibility entitling them to such commissions on reaching their twenty-first birthdays. The school ranks high among schools of this type on the excellence of its military work. Page Fifty-Nine HOW THE MILITARY AFFECTS THE DAY At 6: 15 A.M. the boys awake at the sound of the bugle. They have a brief period in which to dress for the morning "setting-up exercises." These exercises are similar to those used at West Point and include the many new exercises used in the training camps during 1917 and 1918 that resulted in such marvelous physical development of the young men in the service. While the notes of "Reveille" are not considered musical by most boys in the early morning, every cadet has good reason to be thankful the rest of his life for the physical development resulting from these exercises. The reader's atten- tion is invited to the views shown on pages 66 and 67 illustrating this work. CARE OF ROOM Following the "setting-up exercises," a brief period is allowed for getting quarters in order for inspection. Most boys need this lesson in orderliness. Every room must be kept in order by the occupants, taking weekly turns. Faculty officers make a careful inspection of rooms on their floors each morn- ing and more exacting inspections occur each Saturday. MEAL AND CLASS FORMATIONS Preceding each meal, the cadets are formed by companies and marched into the mess hall. During the academic part of the day each class forms separately on the outside and is marched to the recitation room by the rank- ing cadet. This requires no more time than the less orderly manner of as- sembling in nonmilitary schools, and gives much experience to officers and noncommissioned ofiicers in handling groups of cadets. FIELD WORK At least one hour a day is devoted to outdoor military drill, this being done just after the academic work of the day is finished. In addition to the value of the training given, exercise in the open is thus guaranteed daily. A VIEW IN "SPECIAL WEAPONS" ROOM OF THE ARMORY Page Sixty xK1Vll 7'Cihf. N ' Vim + A A A L - X31 if u'.'

Page Sixty-Seven V K 5 XVWKEJW s Page Sixty-Eight -Y K ATHLETICS Tennessee Military Institute encourages all forms of outdoor and indoor athletics. The policies of the school with respect to athletics have been changed very little in the last eighteen years and such changes as have been made have been in the line of the addition of the so-called minor sports and provision for interscholastic contests in these sports. This makes clear that we are rather well satisfied with the results of our athletic policies. In Tennessee Military Institute, we do not have compulsory athletics. This statement may surprise and disappoint some readers of this page. We make no criticism of schools that do have compulsory athletics, but we prefer the results of playing for the fun of playing, and so long as we continue to be able to interest so high a per cent of our boys in playing for the love of it, we are not likely to resort to the method of compulsion. There are good reasons for the large number of our boys who take part in various sports during their free time. First of these is that we have so many different lines of sport and groups representing so many different levels of ability in different sports. It becomes easy for a boy to iind the group in which he can compete on fairly even terms. A second reason for voluntary boy-interest in sports in T. M. I. is the voluntary teacher-interest in various sports. Even the older teachers of our faculty continue to enjoy golf and tennis and practically all the rest keep up their interest and participate in the coaching of teams in major and minor sports. Probably the most important reason of all for voluntary boy-interest in sports is that the school offers no athletic scholarships and does not even seek to enroll the well-developed athletes of other schools, either public or private. More than ninety per cent of the boys making places for themselves on our interscholastic teams have never made a varsity team in any other school be- fore entering Tennessee Military Institute. These facts are well known in our school. Consequently boys feel that they have good chances of developing athletic ability and winning their places on the various teams. In addition to varsity schedules, provisions are made for interscholastic contests in major sports for three or four other age-and-size groups. In addition to our major sports-football, basketball, and track, with sev- eral teams in football and basketball-during 1936-37, we had teams and in- terscholastic contests in fencing, tennis, golf, and swimming. Boxing is being resumed next year. The school has facilities for all these sports, including a nine-hole golf course, which occupies about seventy acres of the 100-acre campus. A new gymnasium is being constructed during the summer of 1937, and will be ready for use at the opening of school in September.

The eight views shown above were taken in the county in which Sweetwater is situated and eh within an hour's automobile drive from the school. Pugu S4'1'w1ty-Six '5 af .gf Norris Dam-69 MiIes from Sweetwater Norris Dam, the first major project of the Tennessee Valley Authority, Was completed in April, 1936, at a cost to the government of 336,600,000 It is 1,872 feet in length and 265 feet in height. The lake produced by the dam covers 34,200 acres and has a shore line more than 800 miles in length. The region around the lake has been bought up by the T. V. A. and will be administered as a national park. The lake and tributary streams are being stocked generously with game fish. In a very short time, it will become a veritable "sportsman's paradise." It is the purpose of the officers of the school to lease a permanent camp site on the shore of Lake Norris to which congenial groups of twenty-five or thirty boys at a time may be taken for Week-end outings in the fall and springg and perhaps conduct a camp for younger boys in the summer. FISHING STREAMS IN OUR COUNTY Tellico River, Bald River, North River and Citico Creek Cshovvn on the preceding pagej are all in our county and are known far and Wide for their rainbow and speckled trout. These streams are in the Cherokee National Park, which comprises much of the eastern side of our county. Others, equally attractive, are just across the state line in the edge of North Carolina. The southern entrance to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park is less than a two-hours drive from the school. Parents interested in fishing or in Won- derful mountain scenery can find either for bothl in forty miles from T.M.I. and can take their boys along for most enjoyable outings.
