community but likewise true of residents living near the school who enjoy the good-humored noise of the campus during the afternoon free time. Perhaps it should be added that this noisy enjoyment of school sports and fun is charac- teristic only of the recreation period from 5:00 to 5:50 as excellent orderliness prevails during the academic portion of the day and throughout the night study period and again after taps. The campus affords facilities for all varieties of recreation. Major varsity sports are football, basketball, wrestling, baseball, and track. Minor sports are tennis, golf, soccer, cross country, rifle team, and swimming. Three football teams played interscholastic schedules last fall. Three basketball teams played inter- scholastic schedules, and four other teams played an intercompany league season lasting several weeks. Through the coaching experience of these younger and smaller teams, we develop the athletes who largely compose our varsity teams in all sports. Thus, most of our athletes are the product of our own training. Yet, despite the fact that our schedules are played with schools numbering from two to four times our enrollment, in the last few years T.M.I. teams have won six Mid- South Championships in football, three in basketball, two in track, two in golf, and have been runner-up in three other cases. Two new athletic fields have been added to the school campus to adequately provide play space for our cadet student body. Our mild climate permits tennis and golf almost without interruption dur- ing the year, and groups of boys enjoy these sports constantly. Will your boy be happy in T. M. I.? A variety of activities are provided in addition to the athletics indicated above. As of the present, we are providing for a school newspaper, band, explorer post, and public speaking to fill out the program of activities necessary to fill the present need of each boy and to enrich his future life. In the foregoing eight sections, we have sought to enlist the reader's in- terest in eight important considerations in the selection of a school, namely, Scholastic Excellence, Character-Molding Influences, Size of School, Adequacy and Comfort of Buildings, Permanence, Favorahle Geographic Location and Environment, Freedom from Distracting Influences, and Happiness of Student Life. These are the factors which we considered when we, as parents, were selecting schools for our own children. Other parents interested in selecting a school and desiring the most satisfactory development of their boys will do well to bear these considerations in mind. Page Twelve

stopping by the school to visit their boys. The school is located approximately thirty-live miles from Tyson Airport, which serves the Knoxville area. Boys trav- elling by air use Delta, American, Southern, Piedmont, and United Airlines. Con- venient schedules are available to all points in the nation by air. The accessibility of the school by car and airplane has contributed to the national patronage of the school. ' 7- FREEDOM FROM Family and community customs have so changed D'5TRACT'NG 'NF'-UENCES in the last generation that teen-age boys no longer have any fair chance of doing uninterrupted work in their own homes. Even in childhood, one interruption follows another, ut- terly disrupting the cultivation of any sustained study habits. As the boy gets older and reaches the high school age, it becomes still worse. Such distractions, social and otherwise, would explain why many parents are considering private academies this year for their boys. Parents seeking a solution for this problem would do well to avoid selecting a school so situated that the boy would merely be exchanging one set of distracting influences at home for another set of dis- tractions in another locality. Tennessee Military Institute is most fortunately situated in this respect. Located just inside the corporate limits of a small town, other than one high-class motion picture theatre, there is little that at- tracts boys away from the school campus. Consequently, most of the free time of the boys is spent in congenial groups engaged in some interesting activity on the campus. Of the influences which distract at home and cause worry and anxiety to parents, we have practically none. 8' RECREAHONAL FAC"-'HES Parents want their boys to be happy in MAKWG Fok STUDENT HAPPINESS their school life away from home. We desire the same. The happy boy loves his school and does better schoolwork. Therefore, we spend much time, effort, and money every year providing facilities and activities mainly for the happiness of the boys. That T. M. I. boys are happy and enjoy thoroughly their life on the campus, neither a transient or long-time visitor could possibly doubt. Evidences of hilarious fun and good humor are everywhere present. That much of it in the free time is too noisy for nervous maiden aunts we cheerfully admit. This rollicking fun becomes the normal order of life during the school session to such an extent that it requires several days for us to become adjusted to the quiet of the campus in vacation times. This is not only true of us of the campus Page Eleven
