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

Mdforica eibafa . . . Those who have read the foregoing pages may be interested in some addi- tional facts concerning the history of the school. We therefore give the fol- lowing brief historical sketch: 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, a prominent Presby- terian minister. 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 influences. Dr. Bachman continued as the active head of the school for twenty-six 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 out- grown 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. The military has been an essential Part of the school since its founding. Dur- ing the early history of the school, the military program was under the direction of qualified personnel employed by the school. There followed a period in which T. M. I. participated in ROTC, At present, we have returned to the original plan, with the military program directed by regular faculty personnel. For further information about the military, see Page Fifty-Three. In 1953 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 an- nually. 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 officers and teachers. This accounts for the higher standards of scholastic work and the greater steadiness in governmental policies that have distinguished this school. Page Fourteen
