CHARACTER OF STUDENT BODY Few, if any, considerations in the selection of a school are more important 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, second, that the atmosphere and influences of the school and community on boys en- rolled result in a record, year after year, of superior student conduct. There are good reasons for this. In the first place, T. M. I. is a school of well-defined 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. 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 and develop in them serious regard for the religious aspects of their lives.

CHAPEL In Tennessee Military Institute chapel is held two mornings each EXERUSES week, Mondays and Thursdays. On each Monday Rev. McCul1ey, our school Chaplain, conducts the exercises. On Thursday several members of the faculty take turns in conducting the exercises. Each morning the exercises start with the singing of one or more songs. Good singing is a tradition in T. M. I. We think that these two chapel assem- blies, coupled with Sunday School and church attendance on Sunday, is adequate to meet the needs of the boys. CHURCH Attendance at Sunday morning church services is required of ATTENDANCE all cadets. Sweetwater is fortunate in its church situation. It is a churchgoing town and the congregations are larger than will be found in most towns of similar size. Sweetwater has been as school town for almost ninety years and pastors and people show a very desirable interest in the church life of our cadets. - We do not have a Catholic Church in Sweetwater. To provide -for Catholic cadets, we arrange to send them by automobile to Catholic Mass conducted by the priest living in nearby Knoxville, Tennessee. This plan has been satisfac- tory to all Catholic boys and their parents in recent years. A 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 Each cadet is required to undergo a physical examination to GROWTH determine his physical qualifications prior to his enrollment. STIMULATED Where no marked variation is found from the normal for boys of his age, the regular-drills and calisthenics under our military instructors, coupled with the various lines of athletics, are considered sufficient. Regular hours and systematic exercises and the military requirement of erect carriage will guarantee the proper growth where the boy is already normal. Page Eigbleen
