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.
