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

SUPERIOR Since it is the work of every school to try to cultivate mental INTEI-I-EC'I'UAI- development, no single school may claim patent rights on all TRAINING the excellencies of method. This we do not do. It is a fact, however, that there is a wide difference between the results sought and the methods used in ,the schools of the country. Tennessee Mili- tary 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 efficiency and capablity of the teaching staff. Every teacher in the Faculty has been thoroughly trained for the particular line of work which he is teaching in T. M. I. 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 preparation period which the cadet must observe preceding the recitation periods. Then there are our special privilege lists under which certain coveted privileges 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 in- centives for higher scholarship standing, there are the firm, but considerate, re- quirements of each teacher and extra-hour special sessions to help up and spur on those who are behind the class average or are careless in their preparations. We believe, therefore, that Tennessee Military Institute can justly claim su- perior 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. 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 fmnleness. 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 officer or teacher. Honesty and truth are part of the atmosphere and spirit of the institution, and the new boy soon catches this spirit. 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. Page Twenty
